Local Chesapeake and Ohio Employes Decide for Compromise. NEW RULES GO IN EFFECT Agreements Provide lor Adjust? ment of Lay-Offs and Safety of Men. A decisive vote in favor of accept- | Ing the Offer oi tiie Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company for a Mat in? crease of 2 centa an hour in the wages of all men employed in the motive power departments of the road waa the culmination of a spirited meeting of the local Chesapeake and Ohio Kail- i way employes, held last night in ihe Labor Temple, on North Fifth Street. | The decision was reached nffr a thor? ough debate of the question by rcpre- | Si ntatlve men of the organization, and it is believed by prominent labor men to lie Indicative of the treatment the propoaitioti will tecelve at the hands of similar units of the organization all along the line. Agitation for an Increase In the wages of this branch, of the service was begun at the annual conference between representatives of the em? ployes, and officials of the road last April. The men for whom the Increase was demanded are all employed in the seven allied divisions which together constitute the motive power employes, namely, machinists and helpers, boiler makers and helpers, blneksmlths. car workers and pipe-titters. The original demand of the men was an increase of 5 cents an hour, but in the course ot the numerous conferencct which have since taken place between the two fac? tions a compromise agreement of 2 cents an hour was reached, and needs! only the ratification of the individual workers to go into effect nt once. Conditions of Labor. While <he machinists" wage rate wns the Important bone of contention, live other change.- in the general rules affecting the eu?ployea of the road go j into effect at once as ?1 result of the joint meetings held sine last April. 'They are ameliorative and safeguarding In their character, und represent con? cessions to the demands of the men. going Into effect at onre. without the usual referendum. The first of the modified rules pro? vides for an assistant, who is to be present in every Instance In which a mechanic Is at work on qn engine under etentn. In order to afford him the nec? essity assistance In case of accident. No such assistant was provided for in the old rules. Another change In a rule of prime importance to ti large division of the mechanical force does away with the overlapping system of working men. and substitutes for it a system of shifts, which ?top work and resume work at the same time. Reduction of Hours. In the matter of lay-offs at times of the falling off of demand for labor, another Important modification waa agreed upon as n result of these con? ferences, and will go a long way, It Is hoped, towards distributing the hard? ships of slaek times and make the bur? dens easier |u hear. The old rule bear? ing upon this point provided for a re? duction In the hours of work per week from the normal fifty-four to forty eight hours before a reduction In the working force was permissible. The new ruling Increases the margin to forty hours per week, forbidding the discharge of employes until the forty* hour rate Is reached and passed. After that point It Is left to the discretion of the comp?ny either to decrease fur? ther the hours par week or to reduce the force. A new rule gu.'ernlng the disposi? tion of employes after they have 0?j cotne Incapacitated for heavy work puts into blndng form what has long been the practice of the Chesapeake nild Ohio Railway. It provides for the employment of these men at easier forms of labor and In tasks which make a smeller demand upon their Strength and agility. Another provis? ion requires the company, before either reducing the number of hours per week or the size of the force, to post a no? tice live days In advance of such action. While the wage increase, if ratitled by the individual members of the fed? eration, will mean a two-cent per hour advance In wages for the men em? ployed oii the main line of the Chesa? peake and Ohio between Newport News and Cincinnati, li will carry with it at the same time a provision for the Increase of ihe wages in force now between Cincinnati ami Chicago of an additional on,- ami one-luilf cents pl r hour. The scale ou the branch division has been by that much lower than that In force on the mam line, mid the agreement provides for ;i gen? eral equalization in wages on both [the Indiana and main Chesapeake and Ohio lines before the gciicr.il increase of two cents per hour is applied. Figures obtained from labor men show that some G,2$6 men will benefit by the new wage scale, eme-flfth of whom are employed on the Indiana di? vision, and will therefore obtain ah el.solute Increase of three and one-h.ih cents per hour. In the opinion of thos in touch with the spirit of the- men the proposition will curry by a safe ma? jority, with perhaps some opposition lo It on Ihe part Of men in Virginia, because of the fact that even undei the Increase the Chesapeake and Ohio wage win .-till be- 3d i--j cents per [hour, us compared with 38 cents per i hour paid by the Seaboard Air Line. 1 Southern and Atlantic Coast Line j roads. ! The assent of 7.". per cent, of all lh6 employes affected by the new wag" i is required for ratification, and three men have been dispatched from Rich . mom! to take the vote. They are E. 1! Dowdy, of Richmond. Thomas '"? Kll Ikayne, of Huntington, w. Vh? and D F.

COMMONWEALTH GETS DIARY Detectives Still Gathering Evi? dence to Show Motive for Brutal Crime. Grilled for hours yesterday at the Henrlco Jail. Beulah Bintord, tho wo? man in the Beattie murder case, told Attorney Wendenburg and Detective Scherer many details of her past life not heretofore brought out, especially as to her relations with Henry C. Beat tie. Jr., the accused husband of the murdered woman, making it clear at last that It was not by accident, as heretofore told, that their relations were resumed three months ago. Henry Beattie went to Norfolk to see her and Induced her to come to Richmond. Ho was to furnish her flat, and there seems to hnve been a definite agreement that he was to have given her a large part ot" his time. Much of what the Bin ford girl told the officers was not mado public, but a definite theory is being woikcd out which It is believed will furnish to the Jury a satisfactory mo? tive for the crime. Father Was Coining; Here. Henry Beattie had never cared much for his wife before or after their mar? ring.-?in fact, had at one time sug? gested, after the wedding clothes were mado, that the wedding be abandoned. There Is no evidence, however, of any open disagreement between them, but the detectives regard it as significant that Mrs. Beattie, who had been stay? ing at the Owen home with her mother. Wiis about to return to the home of her husband, and also thut her father. R V. Owen, of Dover, Del., was that night! on his way to Richmond, and did, in! fact, reach here the next morning,] learning of the murder from the pa? pers in the Washington Union Station, while already hastening to Richmond. In the language of the detectives, It' was getting too warm for Henry at home. His wife knew that the Bin ford woman was back in Richmond and that her husband was out suspiciously late at night in Ills ear, sometimes un? til long after midnight. Beattie hod stated that he could not run away with the Blnford Blti until his father's death; they would have no means of support until he came into his father's property. So the flat was nrranged for and furniture ordered. Whether the wife threatened to dis? close to Mr. Beattie, Sr., or to her father, who was then coming hurriedly to Richmond, certain things about her husband's condition and manner of life cannot be stated, but Beulah has stated that as soon as the way was clear she would have Henry all to herself As to the ?letalis, the detectives believe Beulah knew nothing of them?was not an accessory before the fact?but that, knowing tho circumstances, she must have known the exact truth tho moment she heard of the murder, still Eliminate Paul. As to Paul Beattie. Detective Scherer said last night that after a further prolonged conference with him he was convinced of the truth of his story. It is hardly conceivable that Paul Beat tie should have bought a gun In a pawnshop In which he was known, and giving his own name in having it kept for him. had he known or believed that the gun was for any improper purpose. As he said, he had run many errands for his cousin, Henry?done him many favors. It Is believed, however, that very shortly alter the shooting Paul and Henry were In communication, and it was then that Henry offered his cousin money to keep his mouth shut about the purchase of the gun. It was this money, the detectives assert, ahout which Paul raved in delirium. Cer? tainly. Mr. Schcrer said, there was no hypothesis by which the blame could be shifted to Paul In order to clear Henry. Henry knew his cousin's voice well, and described us his assailant a large man with n beard, not n puny, weak looking boy. And no ground for animus or mb tlve has been shown on Paul's part. Henry could not make any statement implicating Paul without confessing that he himself was Implicated, and i was, in fact, the beneficiary, according ] to his views, or the murder. Certainly I Paul had no money with which to hire ' any one to commit such a crime. Mr. Scherer asserted that reports had been submitted to him yesterday i by Detectives Wiltshire and Wren, and j by County Officer Jarrelli all serving . to substantiate the original theory that Henry Beattie alone and unaided ' murdered his wife, and the supple? mentary information Beulah nave yes? terday goes fur to show the motive. Commonwealth Gets Diary, I The diary of the Blnford girl, now in the hands of attorneys for the 1 Commonwealth, was secured by The I Tlmos-Dlspateh ori Tuesday. |t throws ' little light on the case, save to show ? her infatuation for Beattie. With the I consent of Mrs. Blnford, it has been j delivered to (he Commonwealth. I Henry Beattie w?a visited at the Jail yesterday for some time by his broth? er, Douglas Mrs Blnford was with her daughter for some time after the exhausting examination given to Beulah by the detectives and attor? neys. As to the possibility of "another wo? man," Mr. Scherer said there was no ! ?ither womin who really figured as a motive for a crime, though the officers , had examined other women to whom 1 Henry Beattie had paid attention, both I before and since his marriage, espe? cially one who was once a clerk In 1 the Reattle store, and who can be ! produced in the event that Beattie makes any effort to prove good char? acter. There Is no other woman In I the sense of any one for whom Reattle ! hod any Infatuation, or for whom ho would take any risks or do any des ! pernio deed. RETURNS HOME Dr. George lieu Johnston Cully Re? covers From Recent Illness. Dr. George Ren Johnston, one of tho foremost surgeons in the South, re? turned yesterday from his summer home ot Rock Castle, fully recovered from hi- recent attack of ptomaine 1 poisoning.

MAKES BOTH ENDS MEET Meets All Expenses With Earn? ings for First Time Since Foundation. The Memorial Hospital will to-day round out tho eighth year of its exist? ence, and tor the tlrst tlnie since Its foundation It haa practically met all expenses with its earnings Being a charitable Institution, nearly 25 per 'cent, of its patients being admitted without charge, there was, of course, a deficit, but the past year in the "pay wards" was so successful that there was a shortage of only $7,955.65. It cost J72,S97.55 to operate tho hospital, and the difference was made by contri? butions from members of the Memorial staff, friends of the Institution and tho philanthropic public. These figures are for the hospital's fiscal year, which ended March 1. 1911. Twenty-four patients were trans? ferred from the Old Dominion Hospital eight years ago to-day to tho institution at Twelfth and Broad Streets. Eight Of these were private patients and sixteen paid ward rates. Work Gradually Grows. From that small beginning the work has gradually and steadily In? creased. To-day there are registered 116 patients, forty-seven private, forty paying partial rates and twenty-nine tree.

Most of the patients, however, come from Vir? ginia, North and South Carolina. Ten? nessee and West Virginia. Since the present management took charge, seven months after the hospi? tal was opened, 24.51 per cent, of the whole number of patients treated have been absolutely free. More than 83 per cent, of the number of days the hospital has been In operation have been free. Many I'ulleutN There. Usually summer months show a de? crease In the number of sick persons admitted.

But for tho abrenco of the varied noises that are wont to emanate from "Wahoo I.ane, ono might have thought yesterday that a midsummer State Fair -was on.

WANT RESORTS FOR EX-PATIENTS Tuberculosis Authorities Wish Healthy Homes for Those Leaving Catawba. Anxious to secure suitable resorts for former patients of the Catawba Sanatorium, where they can properly continue the treatment, the State Health Department and the State Antl-Tuberculos's Association hava united to prepare a list of suitable boarding houses throughout the Stato where such patients will be received. According to health authorities here, the need for such resorts Is very pressing. The Stute Board of Health, In an effort to make Catawba avail? able to as many as possible, has de? cided that patients can only remain at the Institution for a period of six months. At the end of this time the average patient in well drilled In tho proper care of his disease and is gen? erally on the road to recovery. Successive attempts to locate these ex-patients In proper resorts or board? ing houses have thus far met with dismal fairttre. Those who control resorts open to all classes of persons naturally feel unwilling to admit con? sumptives. The result bus been that it his often been absolutely Impossi? ble to place patients, with means to pay for their board, where they can ipeeive proper chip. In the entire, city of Richmond, for Instance, a tempo? rary hoarding house for a consump? tive hoy could not bo found a few we?ks ugo. The State Anti-Tuberculosis Asso? ciation and the Health Department 'rive therefore joined hands to locate, private families and boarding houses where only consumptives will bo ; taken. H |k not expected, of course. I that consumptives will be received In j miscellaneous homes, or where there are persons liable to Infection: but It is planned to secure th'e names of suitable homes either run by persona j who have already had consumption or by those least susceptible to the dls ! eane. As soon us these arc located I they will be Inspected by the Stnte j Department of Health and will only 1 be recommended by the department j and the Anti-Tuberculosis Assdcta I tlon when It is found thut they con? form to the essential requirements for the proper care of their patients. Dr. j D. S. Freeman, of this city, oxocutlvo ! secretary of tho association, has di? rect charge of the matter, und is pushing It as rapidly as possible. BOYDTON LEADS first Town In State to Conform to Hc tiulreniontx for Sanitary Outbuildings. Officers of the State Henlth Depart ' mcnt have awarded the palm to Boyd 1 ton as the tlrst town in the .State to conform absolutely to the require? ments for sanitary outbuildings. The Mecklenburg town recently be? gan a campaign to protect Itself against typhoid fever and like mala? dies, and. as tho great step in that direction, demanded that every house? holder of the town erect a sanitary outbuilding on his premises, which should c< t.form to the specifications of the Health Department. This has now been done. An In? spector of the department, after a close examination, ha; ir"*"I no un* sanitary buildings, nnd has so re? potted to the department. Health olhcess predict that typhoid in Boyd ton will show an immediate and dt j elded decline. Can't Use Earthen Jugs. The little brown Jug may have Its uses and Its abuses, say officers of the State Health Department, but it will not do as a container In which to ship specimens of water for sanitary examination. The earthen Jug, according to health authorities, is made in such a way that while it may be clean, Its clean? liness* can never be assured. As a re? sult, water sent in these Jugs, drawn in a sanitary manner, may receive organic; mutter from the Jug which will render the results of a sanitary examination misleading. Hereafter water ret eived at the Health Depart? ment for analysis shipped In earthen jugs, will not bo examined. Jefferson Hotel Arrivals. A. K. Cochran, Philadelphia; Mrs. Chan, Gans, Pittsburg: W.
