Saturday is Glove Day!
Its importance is accentuated by the fact
that it is announced by the Greatest Glove'
Store of Richmond.

of these have been buying our Gloves for many'years and KNOW
that this is a store that spares neither pains nor cxpense;in securing
THE BEST OF THE GLOVE WORLD'S PRODUCTIONS.
Our policy is one that eliminates entirely nil Gloves of doubtful
quality, no matter how well the goods appear or how "tempting" the
seemingly low price of the unscrupulous dealer who offers them may
be. Years ago the Miller & Rhonda Glore Store sat the standard for
Richmond, and to this day it has wen too high to be followed success?
fully by any other. Tills store is supreme.

Station yesterday afternoon. Kniest
Jurter, a colored youth seventeen years
old, was arrested at that place and
brought to Richmond by D. 11. Deasy,
a detective in the employ of the rail?

It seems, from stories told by both
sides, that a railroad tie had been
placed across the tracks just before a
passenger train was due to arrive.
Carter said that he was attracted to
the place by the call of a WhHo man
and his wife, who were Just about to
cross the railroad tracks. They point?
ed the tie out lo him, and, according
10 him. he removed It Just In time, the
train passing by a few moments later.
But he was arrested later, and was
brought Into Richmond, Captain Grndyi

Honry Carter Stuart come to Richmond
early yesterday morning and upent tho
day hero. In the afternon he visited
tho State Fair Grounds, noting tho
preparations mado for tha.t event.
At the Westmoreland Club last night
Mr. Stuart talked with a reporter for
The Tlmes-Dlspatch about various mat?
ters in which he is Interested. He has
come to attend the State Fair, and
I after spending a day or two In the
North on personal business, leaving
I this horning, he will return to the olty
to spend fair week.
In Hare for Governor.
Mr. Stuart was disinclined to say much
regarding politics so far as he Is per?
sonally affected. "1 havo no desire to
make any sort of aetlvo campaign at
this time," he said, "deeming It prema?
ture while tho existing contest la In
progress, and 1 presumo It Is unnecea
sary to reiterate what 1 raid to The
Tlmes-Dlspatch a year ago?that I am
I a candidate for the ofll.c of Governor
j of Virginia at the next election. I am
I very grateful /or vho many assurances
I of suppor' i have received from nu
| morot's quarters," said Mr. Stuart.
"* 'ii11 e I have made no formal an
I nouncement of my candidacy. It Is well
understood that 1 am In the race."
Thu Southwest citizen brings cheer?
ing news from a party standpoint from
his section. "I am very certain," he
asserted, "that the Democratic repre?
sentation from the Ninth District in
the next General Assembly will li* ma?
terially Increased* In many counties
an active light Is being waged, and n
good many of the Democratic nominees
are going to be successful."
I'rnis.N the t ali.
On the subject of the State Fair Mr.
Stuart Is enthusiastic. Its foundation i
on an enduring basis is regarded as
largely due to h's personal efforts. He
was prevented from attending last year |
because of his canvass for Congress, !
when he almost overturned a ltepob
llcan majority of 4.100 secured by Con?
gressman Slemp only two years previ?
ously.
"I am much gratified to see the In?
terest being, tnken by our own people
In the fair," said Mr. Stuart. "While
only a few years ago the bulk of tho
exhibits and thu features which mako
up the fair came from other States, tho
contrary Is now true.
Forty counties in Virginia havo ex?
hibits on tho grounds, and the indi?
cations are that Virginians are tak?
ing increasing pride In the annual
event as an Institutton. The growth
of the fair marks the growth of the
State. This year's fair will, 1 am
conlldent, be the biggest and best.
Good Honda In Sou> avreat.
"Not the least Important indication
of the spirit of progress In Virginia
Is the activity in roud building," con
tinned Mr. Stuart. "Most of the coun?
ties in the Southwest havo recently
voted large sums In bond Issues for
the building of permanent highways,
and the other counties will soon fol?

REPLY EXPECTED
FROM DARRINGER
President of Polytechnic Insti-i
tute Served With Set of
Charges.
Members of the board of visitors of
the Virginia Polytechnic Institute are
awaiting a reply from Dr. Paul B. Bar-;
ringer, president of the Institution, to;
certain charges made against him a
few weeks ago, and to which ho prom?
ised to reply within u week or two
after the opening of the school for
tho term. The matter has not ap?
proached the period of a promised in?
vestigation, and nothing official what?
ever has been done In referenco to it.
No meeting of the board has been held
regarding the- matter, the charges be?
ing handed Dr. Barringer at the Rich?
mond Hotel by the party preferring
them, In the presence, only of L. 15.
Johnson, rector of the v'sltors and
president of the Norfolk and Wesicrn
Railway.
These charges are to the effect that
Immoral conditions prevailed at the
Virginia Polytechnic Institute at the
last session, and that when the situa?
tion was presented to President Bar?
ringer. he did not take what were re?
garded as active steps looking to Its
suppression. It is further charged that
a tremendously large number of fur?
loughs Have been granted to cadets to
go to Rounoke and attend plays, with,
results that wore lurgcly demoralizing!
to school life.
Perhaps the most serious accusation
brought Is that under Dr. Barrlnger's j
regime the standard of truth Is not
high at tho Institute, and that the \
?honor system is to a great extent aj
failure.
At the time the charges were handed !
Dr. Barringer. he Indicated to a re- j
porter for The Tlmes-Dlspatch that i
some stateTmrnl would he forthcoming
later. ? '
?ny? Charges Are Kalse.
Dr. Barringer was called over the
long distance tojephone last night at !
Blacksburg, and asked regarding the j
charge* made against him. Ho de- j
. lined to make any statement at this j
time further than to say that at the]
proper time the charges and reflections :
on the cadot corps and on him would
be proved false and malicious.
When D E. Johnson, Tector of the
visitors, was asked about the matter
In Roanoke laat night, he mado this
written statement:
"Mr. Johnson declines to affirm or
deny that charges have or 'will be made
against Dr. Ba.rrlngar, president of the
Virginia Poly technic Institute.?
DR. CARRIN6T0N
MAY BE REMOVED
Report That Directors Will To
Day Declare His Office
Vacant.
LEGAL QUESTION INVOLVED
-
Comment Aroused Over Delay
in Selection of Super?
intendent.
Suggestions were to be beard fre
quenUy In tho city yeetorday to the
effect that following- tho charges made
by Dir- Charles V. Carringlon against'
thu directors ot tho State i'fnttentlaVy,
I tho board would at to-day's mecUng
! declare Ins olllco vacant, and proceed
: to elect somo one olse, presumably
! Dr. Uerhert Mann, for tho unexplrod
j ti'-i-m. Mombors of tho board, when
I naked last night regarding such apxop
j osltlon, refused to discuss it.
Tito rumor?for It was nothing
I more?was given color by tho nature
i of the attacks made by Dr. Carringlon
in the public print on members of the
board, and the counter-uttacks by uomo
of the directors on Dr. Carrlngton. It
waa pointed out that of necessity the
relations will bo so strained as to pro
; cludo satisfactory conduct of the bual
! noss of the penitentiary during the
I remuinder <*t Dr. Carrlngton's present
term, which will end on January li,
I 1912.
Inasmuch as Dr. Mann has already
j been elected for tho now term. It would
, bo nutural to take for granted that
j ho would be chosen for tho uncxplred
I term of nearly throe months.
Choice of Superintendents.
It wub said last night by a member
I of the board of directors that It was
j not the Intention of tho bourd to take
up to-day the election of the supcr
! intendents of the penitentiary and ot
j the State Farm. ThOBe oilicers must
be chosen prior to December 1, but
up to thut time the board may act
when It pleases. There waB some com?
ment ov.er tho fact that tho superin?
tendents were not elected last Satur?
day, when the surgeons for tho two
institutions were chosen. While no
outspoken opposition has arisen to
either Major Jarnos B. Wood or Cap?
tain T. J. Davis, the delay has given
risu to some talk.
A legal question may arise In con?
nection with the rumored decapitation
of Dr. Carringlon at to-day's meeting.
This la as to whether a surgeon may
be dismissed without an Investigation
Into charges made against him, and
without giving him an opportunity to
defend himself.
Ltw on .subject.
The Constitution of Virginia, section
118, provides that "the superintendents
and surgeons shall be appointed for a
torm of four years, and be removable
by the board of directors for mlsbe
huvlor. Incapacity, neglect of ofrlclul
duty, or actB performed without au?
thority of law."
Section -1154, of the Code of Virginia,
referring to the penitentiary, reads In
part as follows: "The board shall In?
vestigate any misbehavior, incapacity,
I neglect of offtclal duty, or acts >per
i formed without authority of law. on
1 the part of the superintendents or sur
I geons, and if in their Judgment there
i be Bufllclent cause therefor, thoy
1 ?hall forthwith remove tho said offi?
cer, and at once appoint a successor
to till the unexplred term."
Und I'ci IIiik Over Charges.
While the surgeon does not attend
meetings of the directors unless eBpe
clally called for, he may he called upon
to do so at any time. The board meets
every Saturday. If, for instance, n
matter should come up this afternoon
upon which the directors desired In?
formation or advice from the surgeon,
the situation, It is said, would be em
bnrruaslng for a-11 parties. In view of
tho accusations made by Dr. Carrlng
ton during tho past few days. He
has asserted that one member Is tho
unwavering friend of the shoe com?
pany which hires, the convict labor.
He has further charged that the elec?
tion of Dr. Mann was due to Influ?
ence exerted by Governor Mann upon
members of the hoard. These charges
have been hotly denied, and the lie
direct has been passed between the
surgeon and two of the directors.
Kvents since the election of lnst
Saturday would he responsible for tho
summary removal of Dr. Carrington.
Frank McMillan MUslng.
Frank McMillan, of 1714 West Mar
sliall Street, wa? reported to the police
yesterday ns missing from home. Mrs.
McMillan Informed the police that he
disappeared from home on September
SO. since when she has heard nothing
from him.
McMillan Is thirty-seven years old.

Marriage License.
A marriage license wns Issued yes?
terday In tho Hustings Court to Robert
E, f.reenstreet and Fannlo Hite.
On reading our story In thi# space yesterday, "That
Is certainly true." He referred to our quotation
from the world's greatest merchant, Marshall Field?
"If you want to succeed, save,"
He attributed special value to the habit of saving,
as a habit, aside from the monetary.gain.
