EMPLOYES Road Will Increase Wages When Norfolk and Western Takes Same Action. No reply has as yel been received by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway from Its proposition to Us motive power employes In reference to the amount of wages It proposes that it will grant an advance equal to that which may be granted by the Norfolk and Western, nlthotigh the net earnings of the latter toad are greater than those of the Chesapeake! and Ohio. The vote on the proposed strike is still _ going on all over the system among the- shop men. It is presumed that Ihe proposition of the road will come before the proper committees af? ter the vote has been taken and can? vassed. Decline lu Dualneaa. The statement of the Chesapeake and Ohio regarding its proposal is as fol? lows: ?'The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company granted on Increase of S per cent, to all employes engaged in the shops of the company during the year 1910, and Is unprepared to make a fur? ther Increase at this time, owing to the lat'se decrease in the net earnings, due to the felling off in business and the large increases made last year In the wages of nearly every class of em? ployes. The Chesapeake and Ohio Is now paying practically the same rates as the Norfolk and Western Railway Company, and iias made a proposition to the committee that It will, simul? taneously with an advance in wages of shop men employed by the Norfolk anrl Western Railway Company, grant the same rate of wages to all employes of 1 Ihe Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Com i panv e-ngngerl in similar occupations. "As the Norfolk and Western Rah | way Company has earned nt the rate I of about 10 per cent on Its stock dur? ing the fiscal rear ended June .10, 1011. and the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Com pa ny but r? per cent., the manage? ment of the latter company trusts that the fairness of its position will appeal to the great body of employes, with whom relations have hore-tofore been ha rmoniotis."

Allowed $125 Per Month as Per? manent Income From Former Husband. COUNSEL FEE TO BE $750 W. L. Royall Is Recipient?Sen? sational Divorce Proceed? ings Ended. Final disposition of the Tenney di? vorce proceedings was made yesterday when Judge Grlnnan entered an order ln the Chancery Court allowing Mrs. Emma S. Tenney $123 a month perman? ently alimony. A final allowance of $750 was made to William L. Royall as her counsel. Several weeks ago Mrs. Tenney was granted a divorce from George O. Ten? ney, tho court reserving questions of alimony and counsel fees. The proceedings end one of the most widely discussed cases heard In the Chancery Court in recent years, the prominence of both parties and the nature of the testimony giving tho trial general publicity. Mr. Tenney is president of the Atlantic Bltulithic Company. His wife is a sister of the Dowager Countess Von Krakow, and both have been prominent In social and club circles. Two Suits Prosecuted, A year or more ago Mrs. Tenney til? ed a suit against her husband for separation with alimony. Mr. Tenney answered with proceedings against his wife for absolute divorce. A sensa? tional feature of the hearing was when William L. Royall, of counsel for Mrs Tenney, brought charges against Louis O. Wendenburg, attorney for Mr. Ten? ney, alleging conspiracy to defame the good name of Airs. Tenney. Judge Grinnan heard and dismissed the charges. As an outgrowth of the main pro? ceedings. Mrs. Tenney. through Mr. Royall, brought suit against the News Leader for certain publications, which action has recently been tried and de? cided In favor of the defendant news? paper, and against William F. Gordon for alleged libel, which has not yet been tried. Depositions filed on both sides were of a sensational character. Mr. Tenney alleging misconduct of his wife with Col E. C. Gordon, of Georgia. Mrs. Ten? ney told of a visit paid to her husband's rooms at the Hotel Richmond, In his absence, at a time when she was liv? ing at the Hotel Jefferson. The hotel clerk admitted her without question to her husband's apartments, and she claimed to have found incriminating letters which were submitted In evi? dence. She also told of finding among her husband's effect? a woman's cor? set, of which mention was made when the case was argued Lawyers Were PerMMent. After two days of argument by coun? sel. Judge Grlnnan took tho case un? der advisement for several weeks, his linal order eommenting on the great mass of unnecessary depositions and the numbers of superfluous questions asked of witnesses. Following the decision of the court, giving Mrs. Tenney a divorce. Mr. Royall raised the question of alimony and counsel fees, and there was a sharp contest between the attorneys over a motion to have an examination of Mr. Tenney's affairs made. Mr. Royall al? leged that Mr. Tenney was a wealthy man. able to pay liberal alimony, while counsel for Mrs Tenney held that the means of his- client had been greatly exaggerated Under the order enter? ed yesterday, the allowance for coun? sel fees is final, sevetal payments hav? ing heretofore been made on account by Older of the court, and Mrs. Tennev is allowed permanent alimony from her former husband of $l.F.no a year, to be paid In monthly Instalments of $125.
