HAWKINS SENDS HIS
RESIGN ATION TO WITT
Commissioner of Revenue \ ol
untarily Retires Because of
Grinding Work.
TRESNON NAMED FOR PLACE
Deputy to Fill Unexpired Term
on Recommendation of
His Chief.
Greatly to the surprise of the cltyj
in general. O. A. Hawkins, Commla
Bioner of the Revenue, yesterday I
morning tendered his resignation to |
Judge 8. B. Witt. ot the Hustings
Court. Mr. Hawkins recommended aa
his successor Henry 15. Tresnon. who
for a number of years has been his
sniff deputy. Judge Witt stated last!
night that the appointment1 for the un?
expired term would be according to
Mr. Hawkins's recommendation, ujid
that he would name Mr. Tresnon this
morning. The present term runs to
December 31, 1913.
Too Ilartl on Hla Health.
The only reason given by Mr, Haw?
kins was that his health was menaced
by the grind of the office There was,
and never had been, he said the slight
est friction between himself and the
members of his staff, or with any
nther city Officers. Since he was elect?
ed to the office on November 1, 1900.
vht business has steadily Increased,
and now has reached such proportions
that his health will not stand the
strain.
Since being elected to the office In
1900, Mr Hawkins has had no Opposi?
tion, having been appointed by Judge
Witt for the present tern!. Both in
his work for the city und State he hasi
always had the commendation of all J
Officers with whom he has had to deal,
and Is considered, pet haps, the most |
efficient and hard working commis?
sioner in the Stat*.
It has been his custom since first |
elected to the office to pass on every
tax bill and to deal personally with
every taxpayer. In this way greater
revenues have accrued to the State and
city, but has added much to the dur.es
of the ofHie". ? Th>.- people of Richmond,
he lays'. tTre" the best taxpayers In
the country.
Trnlnrd for the Work.
Mr. Tresnon. who will tuke. charge ofl
:he office immediately after his ap?
pointment this morning, al90 is well'
known throughout the city and has a
thorough knowledge of the oltlce. He
was appointed deputy when Mr. Haw
kins was first elected, and has held
the position continuously since that
time. Having been trained In the pres?
ent conduct of the oltlce, he doubtless
will carry out she successful methods
of his predecessor. So far as was
known last night there will be no other
<hanges In the offl.ee. except that it will
be necessary for Mr. Tresnon to ap?
point another deputy.
The ofhee, of Commissioner of the]
Revenue is one of the most lucrative!
in the city government, and when it
became known yesterday that Mr. Haw-1
kins had resigned there was consider?
able discussion. Many of those nofl
knowing the manner of selecting his
successor were nominating candidates
for the place, and several prominent!
name- were suggested.
Man] After thr Place,
The aspirations of would-be commie-)
sloners were knocked out, however, |
when Judge Witt announced that !>e
would be guided in his appointment
solely by the recommendation of Mr.
Hawkins It Is now certain that those
who would like to get Into the office
will have to wait .'or the expiration of
the juesent term.
Mr. Hawkins states that he has made!
ho arrangements for any future busi?
ness, except that ho will select some-!
thing less exacting than Commissioner ]
of the Revenue For the present ho ,
will take a much needed rest.
Mr. Rurajer Almoat Welt.

O. A. HAWKINS
Tells What Highland Park Has
Done and Urges Strict
Economy.
In his annual mes:-ase delivered last
night. Mayor K. M. McClure, of High?
land Park, reviewed the things accom- I
plished hy the town during the last
year, and made suggestions tor the
future. The cltlr.ens, he said, had
fallen in with plans laid last year]
and had accomplished more in tho way
of improvements than at that time j
could have been expected. The Mayor
asked that he be relieved of the super- |
Intendency of various work, according j
to recent action of the executive com?
mittee, saying that It exacted too much j
time from his private business.
Among tho improvements accom?
plished during the year, tho Mayor I
cited the establishment of a complete
water works at the cost of $5u,???, the. |
Installation of an electric lighting sys
tern and sewerage connections. Tne|
matter of additional sidewalks and
other street Improvements was, not]
completed, but lu now being pushed |
forward, as the money Is available.
Mr. McClure called particular attention
to the fact that two public service cor?
porations? the telephone company and
the street railway company?were oper
atlng in the town without franchises.
"These corporations," he said, "should
be required to secure the proper fran?
chises In the manner prescribed by law,
as they are now occupying the streets
or alleys with no right whatever."
As in his message of last year, he
advised that the citizens steer clear
of expenditures that make higher tax?
ation necessary. Puring the year just
passed, he said, it was necessary to
Incur much expense on account of tho
amount of work in progress. As most
of this now Is completed, he. advised
sorno retrenchment at an early date,
especially In the payrolls, which he
considered too high.

Supreme Court Will Construe
Important Section of
By-rd Law.
DUTIES OF BANK OFFICERS
Appeal in Case Where Depositors
Were Not Allowed to
Sue.
Whethor a wholesale dealer In li?
quors who establishes storage ware?
houses must pay a license tax under
the Byrd law In each town In which
he does business, or only where the
principal ofllce Is located, is to be de?
cided by the Supreme Court of Ap?
peals. A writ of error was allowed
yesterday In this court on the petl
i tl n of the Virginia Brewing Company
I in its sun ag.- inst tho Commonwealth
I for tho recovery of license taxes puld
in Lynchburs under protest.
The section of tho Byrd law cover?
ing the point says: "For tho privilege
of manufacturing malt liquors there,
shall be paid $.",<H>, and upon payment
of such specific sum the manufacturer
shall have the privilege of selling the
products of his brewing in quantities
of two dozen pints or more at any
place within the State of Virginia, ex?
cept where such manufactory is situ?
ated In any local option or n license
territory."
The Virginia Brewing Company is
located in RoanolCe, and pays this tax.
It desired to go into business in
Lynchburg when that city went wet.
but tho Judge of the Corporation Court
decided that it must pay the tax. which
it did. and now seeks to recover It.
The petition states that the judge con?
ceded the concern's right to sell in
Lynchburg on its rtoanoke license by
mail orders, by salesmen or by agents
who deTivur at the lime of sale, yet
ruled if deliveries" were made from a
storage warehouse, the tax must be
paid.
County Treasurer Appeals.
James E. Uerrtll. treasurer of Prince
William county, Is granted an appeal
from a decision by which he was or?
dered to pay to the county the sum of
(1,539.43, said to be due for interest
on unpaid tax bills and overcharges
on commissions on the school fund.
It is contended by the treasurer that
the Board of Supervisors as such did
not authorise the attorney tor the
Commonwealth to bring the suit, and
that therefore the Circuit Court was
without Jurisdiction. Tho petition
argues that if such practices are al?
lowed, the attorney might attack any
officer, i-nd then go to the board for
its approval afterwards. The pojnt is
irkely to prove an important one.
Depositors in the lute Traders' and
Truckers' Bank of Norfolk get another
chance for recovery from the officers
and directors by the action of the Su?
preme Court in allowing them an ap?
peal. The suit wan brought by tho
depositors to compel the directors to
account for and pay into court the
amount and value of assets which they
were alleged to have dissipated by
their negligence, misconduct. mis?
feasance and malfeasance.
Position of Directors.
Their bill was dismissed in the lower
court on the ground that the directors
were trustees for the bank and for
the stockholders and not for the depos?
itors, and that the latter had no power
In themselves tc bring the suit. This
point also Is one which Is likely to
prove of great moment to many people
In this State.
A writ of error was awarded In the
case of George Bonos against the Fer?
ries Company, for unlawful detainer.
This is one of the suits growing out
of the settlement of the old leaseholds
of the Norfolk county ferries.
An ancient contract for sale of land,
afterwards found to be short In acre?
age. Is Involved In the case of James
B. Mullen and C. T. Purks against Ca
len R- Smith and J- II Carpenter, from
Frederlcksbui g. An appeal was al?
lowed, making five such actions in this
court yesterday.

Little or nothing which seemed to
Indicate material changes In the pres?

I annual tax hearings held yesterday by
I the State Corporation Commission "?t
I the Capitol. No questions were asked
the railway representatives present
which would scorn to look toward my

the time was taken up In discussion
of minor matters. The session -was
short. In this respect being In marked

at S!5,000 for the whole piece. It be?

Doran. He wanted an increase In
valuation on two pieces ef water front
property owned by the Norfolk and

CANADIAN ON RECIPROCITY
Winnipeg Assessor Says Delay
Is Worst Fate That Measure
Can Meet.
Abandonment of the "eye for an eyo J
and tooth for a tooth" principle In
the framing of State laws, and. moro
harmonious and equitable legislation
on matters affecting more than ono
Stute, were the ideas most strongly
emphasized In Governor Dix's paper
on "State Comity and Taxation," read
yesterday at the opening session of
the fifth annual Conference on State
and Local Taxation, by Lawson Purdy,
president of the New York tax de
, partment. Dulles Incident to the re?
convening of tho Now York State Leg
is laiure prevented Governor Dlx from
being present at the conference, and
made necessary the reading of his ad?
dress by his specially appointed delo
gate.
"1 have no sympathy with tho theory
of taxation which finds expression in
[retaliatory legislation." said tho Gov
' ernor. "Because some sister Slalo
S Imposes unjust ihxbs upon our clt
1 iKens doing business there. Is no rca

: Impose unjust taxes upon the citizens

I "Real estate, In the nulure of things,
, must bear the chief burden of local

! there arc two great groups of taxes;
' that Is, taxes on business and tau??
I on Investments. Business, however. 13
) not so fixed. Buslneso can move, and
j business Is always watching tor a

will always attract business. But tax?
ation, unless It be even, just and
equal. Is a hindrance which business
1 will do Its best to escape. And slneo
?? business no longer confines Itself to

1 most difficult prnlili>m of human trov

F. F. Noel, of Mississippi, followpd
with a quaint hit of family history,
which related that his paternal grand?
father emigrated from tho Virginia
seventy-seven Year* ago to Mlxslss!npl,
on tho strength of which, the Governor
claimed to be a "near-Virginian." The
best governed State, he thought, wen
the best taxed State. To devise the
best scheme of taxation, based either ?
on benefits received or ability to pay.
or both, he declared to be tho purpose i
of tho present conference,

To the Citizens of Richmond
I have been connected with the City Collector's office for
the past eleven (11) years, serving in the capacity of First
Deputy for about six (6) years.
Owing to the pressure of my work and duties at this particu?
lar time of the year, I have not been able to see as many of the
voters as I naturally desired to see with reference to my candi?
dacy. Hence this card.
Having by universal consent faithfully discharged the duties
of the office entrusted to me by the unanimous vote of the City
Council in joint session, and being now fully acquainted with all
