Paul Beanie lias requested The Times-Dispatch to state that the re? port sent out from Petersburg yester? day afternoon und attain last night that he was to go on the stage In Petersburg to-day was absolutely with? out foundation, untrue and unfair to him "1 went over to Petersburg on Mon? day,' he said, "to see some of my rela? tives. A relative of my wile is con? nected with the Academy of .Music in that city, and he had asked me before? hand to stop and see him if 1 ever got over there. I did so, and while In Petersburg he invited me to the theatre to see '.Madame Sherry,' The fact tii.it J was around the theatre Is doubtless responsible for (lie report. "I have never had any Idea of fool? ing with theatre offers, because I can't act or sing, and 1 am not willing to show myself, after all this unpleasant notoriety, for gate money. 1 am going back to work just as soon as I can get \ a workman's Job. I am hunting work. I and It h"rts my chances for the public to be deceived in this manner." Mrs. Houchcns, Paul's mothcr-in-law, also denied the nage report with some feeling. "There is not b word of truth In it," she snld. "and we would not let him do that if he wanted to. But: I am jrlad to say that Paul has never i considered any theatre otter, and he will not." Pres? Agent's Work. A dispatch from Petersburg late last r.Ight stated that the local theatre hud advertised Paul as aji attraction to? night, but that Mayor Cameron would probably not allow him to perform. After this message was received, Mrs. Houchens still denied the report. She BOid that Manager Dean, of the Reters burg house, had tried to reach Paul during the evening, but did not, and that he. Mien tried to make an engage? ment with him for this morning. "I told him that he could not use Paul's name for advertising purposes," she eaid, "and that lie would not go on any stage" The whole thing was regarded here as a press agent's yarn.

Governor Haves and Aaron Rady, colored, were urresled yesterday on a charge of helping indent .lohn Eraser's head with a rock. Governor Hayes Is the brother of Lawyer Hayes, who was arrested Monday night and who i appeared In the Ponce Court yesterday f morning. It may be said en pussadH j that the titles of the two Hayeses sig ' nlfy nothing. Governor Hayes is not. j never was and never will be a gover ! nor. and Lawyer Hayes Is not, never was I and never will be a lawyer. When I Hayes was asked last night why his ' parents bestowed on him the name of i ?'governor." and why they called his brother "lawyer." he said he didn't know. A lawyer would have asked him why he didn't know and would have drawn deductions from anything he might have said. But the reporter, not , being a lawyer, took It for granted jthnt Governor Hayes spoke the truth when he said he didn't know. There are lots of things real governors don't know, and why pester a pseudo gover? nor with useless questions, particularly as he had only helped lam a brick i Into a fellowman's head?

NEW LINE SEEKING LIGHT FRANCHISE Richmond and Henrico Applies to Council for Rights to Sell Like Other Company. GOES TO STREET COMMITTEE Offers to Give Bond That Fran? chise Will Be Effective in Eighteen Months. Application was made to the Board of Aldermen last night for a franchise to sell light and power, by the Rich? mond and Henrico Railway Company, which now operates a street railway system over certain streets In Rich? mond in opposition to thfe lines of tho Virginia Railway and Power Company. The paper was offered, by Aldermen Harvey E. Atkinson and referred to the Committee on Street. In the usual wordy form for grant? ing city franchises, lr offers n pro? posed ordinance, granting to the Rich? mond and Henrico company the right to erect poles and wires, construct conduits and subways throughout the streets and alleys of tho city, for the purpose of supplying light and power, work to begin within six months from the time the franchise Is effective, and to be completed wlt>?jj eighteen monfhs thereafter, under bond in the sum of $5,0Q0. I The Richmond and Henrico company! now generates power for its street! cars from a steam power house nt the] foot of Nicholson Street, which the' promoters claim may be enlarged to! afford current for sale for lighting andj power In competition with the Vlrrlnla Railway and Power Company, which; owns power houses on Brown's Island | and at the foot of Twelfth St. Some; months ago the Street Committee had extensive hearings on a plan propos? ed' by Miles Martin and others for a franchise for distributing lighting and and power, the current to be generat? ed at the Midlothian mines. Tho pro? position was apparently dropped when the committee insisted that the newj company should erect Its power house before tearing up the city streets fori pole Ines and conduits. The Richmond I and Henrico Railway Company now I has pending before the Street Com? mittee extensive plans for extension of j Its tracks Into the western part of tho l city. DEFECTIVE WIRING Inquiry Into Fire nt Ctty Hall Show? | Ordinance Violation. That the recent tire at the City) Hall, which damaged the offices of! the City School Board on the fourth I floor, was caused by defective work I In connection with the distribution j system of the now municipal street j lighting plant is the substance of a report submitted to City Electrician ' Thompson by Electrical Inspector J. j Leroy Speights. Mayor Richardson has indicated that he will request the Committee on Electricity to make an ' investigation. 1 According to the electrical Inspector, the fire was caused by the contact ofI n lighting wire of the municipal light- | ing system recently installed with a | telephone wire of the private ex- i change system, which connects nil pub-! 11c school buildings and which has 1 Its switchboard In the School Board j offices at the City Hall. City ordi? nances forbid the stringing of tele? phone and light wires within eighteen inches of each other. The -committee will endeavor to ascertain by whose i negligence they were allowed to come ] in contact. Still more serious results | might have ensued had any one beenj attempting to operate the telephone ! switchboard at the time the wires I were crossed. The light wires were strung by I .Storms Ai Company, under supervision ' of Consulting Engineer Trafford. The contract was revoked before the work | was completed and Mr. Trafford em- I ployed men to finish the Job. STILL IN CHESTERFIELD No Order Issued by Jiidnc Watson for Removal of Rent tie. No order was received yesterday nt Chesterfield County Courthouse for the removal of Henry Clay Beattle, Jr.. the convicted wife murderer( and It seems that Judge Watson has no.t yet' decided when he will remove . tho prisoner to this side of the James. Beattle appears, however, not to be very diseontonte,] with his present lot. His appetite is still good, ond he sleeps well. He hopes, though, to be removed wjthin a few days from his rather quiet surroundings. His only visitor yesterday was his sister. Miss Haael Beattie, who remained with him for several hours.

We Serve Our Customers in Every Branch of Banking. Appeal Allowed Parties ? Sen tenctrj to Jail for Contempt of Court. TRIGG CASE APPEALED AGAIN United States Dissatisfied With Latest Decision?Tax Case in Court. Vigorous protest against being sent to Jail for contempt of court because of failure to return deposits with? drawn from a bank Just before it j closed its doors, is contained In the : petition to the Supreme Court of E. . L. Kidd and Mrs. P. EX. Kldd. An ap? peal was allbwed yesterday. I The bank involved was the Loving ! ston branch of tiic Virginia Safe De? posit and Trust Corporation, of Alex? andria. According to Kldd's story, ho overheard a telephone message In transmission between It. L. Camden, cashier of the branch, and one Ro i berts, station agent. The latter had heard of the impending trouble through I the telegraph message sent to Cam? den by the receivers. Instructing him to close the bank. Roberts was plead? ing to be allowed to cash some checks. Kldd says he henrd Roberts asking Camden to honor a check from Stuart Whltehead. the Commonwealth's At? torney of Nelson county, and know? ing that Whltehead's check was good, he concluded that something was wrong with the bank. Cashier Was Kind. He then went to Camden, who agreed to allow him to cash two certificates of deposit in tho name of Mrs. Kldd. amounting to $2,193.33. Camden was 1 dually kind to others, although ho had been instructed to close tho bank, with the result that he sent to the receivers only $114. Suit was brought to compel the re. fund of these Amounts, and the court ordered tho Kldds to reimburse the bank and Its creditors within thirty days or be placed in jail until it was paid. The appeal stops this part of the proceeding. In the petition tho TCidrts claim that they are entitled to trial by Jury In Nelson for recovery of the money, In? stead of through contempt prooeod ings in Alexandria. Trlgg Company Again. Once more does the apparently end? less litigation over the settlement of the affairs of the William R. Trlgg Com? pany, yet Into the Supreme Court. The court yesterday granted an ro, peal to the United States of America against the William R. Trlgg Com? pany and others, from a decision uf the Chancery Court of the city o# Richmond. The suit was originally Instituted In the name of S. H. HaweH & Co.. for the purpose of a settlement of the af? fairs of the shlp-bulldlng concern. In many forms It has been In the lower courts and severnl times In the Su? preme Court, while last year one point was settled in the Supreme Court of the United States. The latter tribunal decided that the liens of the United States against the Mohawl; a reve? nue cutter, and against the Gaiveston, a cruiser, which were being built by the Trlgg yard nt the time of its failure, were void as ngalnst the gen? eral creditors of the company. At tho same time the highest court held that the lien of the United States as to the Benyu.ird, an ocean-going suction dredge, was valid. t'nrle Sum Slow Pay. Upon remand of the case to the Chancery Court, it was ruled that tho money due by the United States on tho Mohawk and the Gaiveston should be paid and distributed amontf the general creditors. From this decision an appeal is taken by District Attorney L. L. Lewis, who claims thnt the con t act lien of the United States was superior to all claims which wore not prior liens. This would make tho g-nv ? ernment a sort of preferred creditor, and is hut another setback to the many efforts to secure a settlement by adding the value of the work done for the government to the assets of the insolvent concern. Tho report of Commissioner E. C. Masslc Indicated that the liabilities of the William R. Trlgg Company reach? ed a tot.il of $2.791.465.47, of which $4 06,750 was borro%ved from banks and Individuals, mostly In Richmond. Claim Tnx Kvanton. A writ of error was allowed by tho Supreme Court yesterday In the case of Sidney M. Loyd and W. C Loyd against the Commonwealth, from thb Corporation Court of Lynchburg. Th?t petitioners claim that tho court de? cided they were liable to a tax of $1,-1 680, on an assessment of $56.000 fori loans and $35,000 for stocks. They say they did not own tho property! thus assessed. It seems that the parties, having in?| herlted the estate of their parents, formed and chartered a concern) known as the Lloyd Corporation, with principal office ar Ablngdon, where, they say, they have paid the taxes dun! the State. The lower court held that this Is a mere evasion of local tax lawsj in Lynchburg, and that the petition? ers do business In that city, hold the| property there and desire to escape lo cal taxation. Refusal of a writ of error was given by tho court in the case of Tames Hatten against the Norfolk and Western Railway. Hatton. a negro boy eleven years old, Is said to have caught his foot in the track of the road and lost his leg as a result of > train running over him. Ho sued and was given $5,000 damages. This ver? dict wns set aside by the Circuit Court of Norfolk county on the assumption thnt the accident could not have oc? curred as described.
