COMPLETE JOB Rooms' Ransacked and Much Valuable Jewelry Carried Away. While all th<> house was emply. the j occupants having gone out to per- j form various duties, one to pay house | rent and a gas hill, the residence at J 210 South Randolph Street was broken ' Into and entered some time between 1 nnd .1 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and j blisses Beatrice Boyle and Agnes Mc Cready returned to lind themselves, j between them, tin losers of about 1200 '. worth of Jewelry , Entrance was effected through a j .side window, and the thieves were evidently deliberate In their opera' .tioiiH. They went upstairs to the sec? ond story, where they went through nnd ransacked all the rooms and broke epen two trunks. The Jewelry and three sf> bills were taken from the trunks. A fur co.ii and parts of other female paraphernalia, which would have brought good returns In any pawnshop, were found neatly tied up nnd bundled The thieves were evi? dently frightened off before they had completed an Inventory of the'r plun? der or decided to leave behind the least portable portion of their loot. Bureau drawers were found open and emptied, th' contents beipg strewn ubout on the floor Everything else In the rooms was truned upside down, iind It seems that the thieves were .thorough In their search for valuables. Dem-rlplloD of Loot. In the assortment Of jewelry stolen ?were two opal rings, a diamond ring, a gold rope chain and cross, on wh'ch was inscribed ''Beatrice, 1909;'' a gold' brier-let, other nold rlnits. a gold opal ring on which was engraven "M. .1 T. to A. McC.;" a sold locket and rope, on Which was engraved the word "Aggie." a set of stag knives and half n dozen silver spoons. It Is the opinion of the police that the thieves watched to see when every? body had left, and then forced an en tranre. They had ample time in wh'ch to work, and left liule behind which appeared to them of value. NO NEW STATION NOW CONSIDERED ?Revival of Ancient Rumor Un? founded?Enlarge Facilities at Elba. Reports said to be current yester ?day In regard to the erection of a great passenger station on West Broad ! Hlreet by the Richmond, Krederlcks burg and Potomac Railroad Company ?were denied yesterday by officials of the company, who state that the only plans of that character now on foot uro for an enlargement of passenger facilities at Elba. For twenty years .past the railroad company has owned ? lid acquired property on West Broad Street as occasion presented. It now owns the Richmond Baseball Park, the grounds of the Hormltase Oolf Club nnd a large tract near the Intersection /.f the Belt Eine and Broad Street Road. Just at the western edge of the new city limit's. It was at this' point that the latest report Indicated j thai the road contemplated erecting t> ?, Tiew passenger station?one that would | allow all throuch trains to go baek j out over the Belt Eine, and so pro? vide for the eventual abandonment of the present trii'-ks down Belvldere Ktr<et through the ,-iiy. While In a general way some such rdan has been talked of for years. W. D. Duke, assistant to the presi? dent, said last night that no Immedi? ate proposition looking to this end was now before the company; that in fact the only matter relating to pas? senger facilities in Richmond was the enlargement of Elba That very neat nnd attractive little stop on West Broad Street, intended primarily for r-uburban service to A?hland and In? termediate points, has been outgrown, end it? facilities will be Increased In pome way. though no new station IS anticipated for the present. Probable Flnol Outcome. Ultimately the general plan will no doubt be carried out. the tracks in) Broad Street and Belvldere Street! abandoned, and the present Byrd | Street Station reduced in size and con-; verted Into only a suburban station for local nnd Petersburg trains. All through trains, both of the Coast Line and Seaboard, could then be brought Into the new west end station, which would also accommodate all trains for; Washington and points North. Mean? while the Belt Line railroad. In anti? cipation of further growth of the city westward, has he<n eliminating grado crossings by Installing overhead bridges for Cary, Grove and Broad Street Loads. Just beyond the new city limits. The Belvldere Street franchise Is a perpetual right, which the city, under opinion of the Citv Attorney, cannot revoke, but both the present City At? torney and his predecessor, Charles V. Meredith, have held that the city may Impose reasonable restrictions. Prayer Meeting. Beglnninc to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock weekly prayer services will be held at the headquarters of the Wo? man's Temperance League of America. 15 South Third Street The opening meeting will be condurted by Mrs William McBaln.

"The exnstence of such an alliance Is negatived only by the very unsatis? factory testimony of certain persons who hold offices or pecuniary con? tracts under the fusion government of Norfolk county, while It Is over? whelmingly proven by the testimony of numerous strnlghtnut Democrats and iJemocrata not connected with I this contest or even voting In Norfolk county, by the testimony of former Fuslonlsts and former Republicans, and by the very recent and remark? able letter of the Republican head ol the alliance put In evidence." .Need OrftMIc Action.
