Levy, chief health officer, recommending the! abolishment of the common drinking cup In the pnrks. He oitcred to replace! the present hydrants with a typo which made It possible for those desiring to tiuench their thirst to drink from the upturned spigot, which, he declared, was In use In most of the States In the United States. Dr. Levy was unable to be present Jo tell of the merits of his suggestion, owing to a slight Indisposition, and the committee, upon motion, ordered the letter filed. It was decided to erect In Gamble's Hill Park a hydrant of the new type. It was also decided to build a water tank at .loseph Bryan Park. Aside from other minor park appropriations for labor, no business of importance was transacted. ? SENT TO GRAND JURY Alleged TUI.-f of 8400 Dlnmond Srut <in Prom Police Court.

HUBER SAT THERE TO WAIT ATONE Nobody Else Arrived to Help I Him Investigate That City Hall Fire. Named by the lower branch of the City Council as chairman of a special committee to investigate the recent lire in the school department of the City Hall, Harry Huber sat down a? the head of a long table last night ano waited for his colleagues to come along and sift. They came not. Hut from all sides there came a host of wit? nesses, full of testimony. They plant? ed themselves around the room, smoked, talked and waited with the chairman. The hands of the clock moved stead ly onward or upward, as all well reg? ulated clocks should move. Frequently necks were craned as a shifting of feet was heard outside the door. So many Investigations have been held heretofore by the municipal gov? ernment that this latest one did not attract any widespread interest or ex? citement, although tkcre wus excite? ment enough when the telephone and electric light wires crossed during a storm and proceeded to singe and burn the properly of the School Hoard. To lind oul the cause and responsibility of this cross was the duty which had been thrown upon the councilmanlc shoulders of Mr. Huber. Mr. Huber wailed for his colleagues to arrive, but he waited In vain. Un? like court witnesses, those who were summoned last night drew uo pay. It is a public duty?a part of the salary they earn irom the taxpayers. Hut no man who works all day fancies the Idea of sluing down all night to wait for a quorum, and so when Mr. Huber saw that he could not get on-- u> gethei he expressed some sentiments on the duty of CouncllmCn and things like that, and announced that the meeting would go over until next Tuesday night, when they will again be requested to appear.

This will make public the names of the de? linquent concerns Not only are there delinquent business men In Richmond, but there are sonn in Norfolk, Peters? burg and other cities in this district. In all there are said to be about 200 such cases. Demurs to Indictment. Through its attorney. S, S P.

URGE CHILD'S WELFARE Conference on Home and School Ends Successful Con? ference. In the mothers' room in the John Smith School, which had been turned into n bower of bloom with palms ami wonderful roses, the conference on home and school und related subjects was resumed at 10:30 yesterday morn Ins, Or. Maclachlan, of the Seventh Street Christian Church, pronouncing the Invocation. The president, Airs. It. 1>. Whltlock, in her opening remarks, declared that mothers must come to bu Interested, for the sake of their own children, In all that affects childhood everywhere. The aims of the Con? gress of Mothers, which are now the . alms of the State Federation, could not be accomplished without close eo-' operation of every agency In the city and State working for child welfare. It is the aim of the conference to se? cure this and to offer the fedeiuton as a clearing house for this work, fur? nishing the crystallizing touch needed In all efforts for betterment. Miss Lucy Coleman was then intro? duced and gave a brief history of the beginning and work of kindergartens here, and made a strong plea for their establishment In eveiy public school. Duty of l'iirent.v Or. Buchanan, of the Juvenile Pro? tective Association, then gave atf out? line of the legislation needed in Vir? ginia to incorporate the principle's Of the Juvenile courts in the legal ma? chinery for the handling of Juvenile delinquency. Me also explained the methods advocated for compelling de? linquent parents, almost always behind the delinquent child, to protect and provide for their families where pos? sible. "Wlnyi parents refuso to be parents, where Is pa rent hood?" asked Or. Buchanan. "livery child has a right to foo;i, shelter and proper train? ing. It Is the duty of the State to see that they get It, so far as Is possible, In the normal manner. We have a Juvenile dellnqunecy law two years old, which covers the point of adult! responsibility for Juvenile delinquency to some extent, but no law Is worth I anything without public sentiment back I of It. It should be possible to Imprison a man and make him work for his 1 family, neither working to reduce taxes for the community nor remaining Idle In Jail." Miss Muccorklo, of the Young Wo- . men's Christian Association, then spoke on the problems of protection for working girls, housing and recrea? tion, shorter hours and sanitary con? ditions. Dr. Chandler then spoke briefly on ' co-operation between the home and j the school and the use- of the schools us social centres, and for vacation and evening schools, the former for back? ward pupils and the latter for girls, therefore not conflicting with any other educational agency. All were deeply Interested In the account which Or. Chandler gave of the past and present accomplishment and future plans along these lines. He wished *.o make Instruction In domestc science! available to parents, even the fathers,: If they desired It. This excited laugh-' ter. as being appropriate Indeed for the suffragette husbands, as well as for those with wives who are 111. Re? strictions preventing movable seats In auditoriums was a hindrance to muk ing the schools recreation centres?a' free party In n schoolhou.se. as an ' Italian termed It. He said that the! vacation schools had cost this summer about $S00, anil had saved -10 pupils six months' work, which would have cost for teachers $2,200, so that It had been pnylng Investment for the city. ' He hoped to see Ruffner School used all summer as a regular graded school. He hoped that a taste for u lyceum course of lectures, eight of which could ' be provided for $1 by use of the schools, might be revived. Also the schools might be used for clubs and debating societies, though politics was at pres- I ent debarred. He did not wish to be radical, but to progress conservatively. Mrs. Schon* SpcakN. Mrs. Schoft" then supplemented Mr. Chandler's remarks In enthusiastic agreement with and admiration for his plans and hopes She would no*, debar political societies, but encourage them, considering them essential to the de? velopment of the civic spirit which Is the crying need of the time. At the same time Mrs. Scboff warned against carrying the nodal centre Idea so far as to wean the children nltogether from the real social centre?that is, the home. Restrict their use to certain evenings. Every good thing can he overdone, and the parental element must enter In -to safeguard the ;?hil tlren In the use of the school;, as social centres. Mrs. Sch?lt spoke of moving picture Ulms of an educational nature being prepared by Thomas Edlsonj and predicted their adoption In all schools as educative aids. Effort should be made to get the girls from the depart? ment stores and from the factories to attend the domestic science departments : of the evening schools. Employers should be approached to engage their co-operation to this end. Mrs. Schorr gave a most interesting ac.ou.it of the Slate college for girls In Columbus, Miss., where tuition i-? fie. and board only $100 per year; where all wear uniforms, no distinc? tion between rich ami poor'Is possible, I and where every girl learns how to : plan and care for a modern, sanitary ; home, as a part of the curriculum. The '? accomplishments are not neglected. bu? ! ib.- whole trend or the course Is to? ward domestic training. Tb.nfercnee adjourned at 1 o'clock, after a most interesting and Instructive ? si ssloii, and reconvened in the bcau : tlful nudltoriunm of the new William I'on School at a o'clock. At the after noon session more than 100 of the lechers of the city schools were pres? ent to enjoy the address of Mrs. Schoff to Ihc teachers and niothors on iho relation of home anil school. Henkln Amiln In Trouble. George l". v. Meakln, an English? man, who figured conspicuously some time ago in a mySterle.'it shooting , scrape. In which he was seriously woundod at Ms boarding house, 106 1-2 Kast <-lay Street, the horn? of M. J. Lawler, was arraigned In Police Court yesterday morning on a 'charge of A' - orderly conduct and beating Marian Lawler, eleven year? old. The case whs continued by Justice Crutchfleld unt;i mis morning. RULING SATISFIES BUSINESS PEOPLE Shippers Elated Over Decision That City Dock Must De Opened Again. REVIVE PURCHASE TALK Councihnen Not Disposed to Accept Offer That City Acquire Property. Business men. especially those whoso plants are located In the section which it served, expressed much rratiiicalion yesterday when they read in The Times-Dispatch that the Corporation Commission had decided that the (bond? holders' committee must repair, re? open .and operate the city dock. While It is known, of course, that the owners will appeal to the Supreme Court, the feeling was general that the city, the Chamber of Commerce, and shippers. who had protested against the closing of the canal, had won a great victory, and a victory which would stiind In the higher court. Coming along with the Anal ap? proval of an ordinance for the con? struction of a wharf below Gillie's Creek, It was evldtnt on its face that golden opportunities hereabout would not be neglected. Cnn Get Federal Aid. Members of the Atlantic Deeper Waterways Convention declared th.it Richmond would have less trouble hereafter In asking h*<p from the Federal government when it was shown that the municipality was anxious and willing to help 'tself. President Moore, of the association, warmly congratulated represont-itlves of the city on the step forward, saying that Richmond would derive great benefits in the future trom the de? velopment of the waterways of the South. "This Is a magnificent city," he added, "and your people should ap? preciate the value of James River." There has oeen no disposition on the prart of Councllmcn to take up the offer made by a real estate firm, which Is anxious to sell the dock to the city. While there are many people wjio hold that the city should ult'mately acquire the canal and operate It free to all shipping of the type It can ac? commodate, the feeling Is thnt so long as the dock must be maintained it would be a useless expenditure of pub? lic funds to buy it just now. Judgment F.ntrrrd. Judgment was entered yesterday In the Law and Equity Court In the case of W. C. Smith against J. E. M. Wal? ker for |231. In the case of B. Jacobs against A. H. and F. H.

HOTEL INSPECTION WILL BE MODIFIED Proprietors Object Strenuously to Unequal Workings of Fee System. INCLUDE BOARDING HOUSES Officials Believe All Should Be Examined and Expenses Paid by State. Virginia's hotel Inspection law, which has now been In operation for some tlfteen months. Is badly in need of per? fection by amendments, in the opinion of all those who have had to do with Its administration. Not these alone hold this opinion, for the same belief is most tlrmly held by the hotel keep? ers of the State. Dr. Hoy K. Klan pagan, the Inspect? ing officer of the State Health Depart? ment. Is making up Ills annual report, and it will Include some figures which It Is expected Will prove of great in? terest. Probably he will make recom? mendations along the lino of proper changes, and at least he will present the situation as It Is. Dr. Plannagan Is rather Inclined to the belief that the traveling men of the State, who began the movement which resulted m the enactment of the law, should take tho lead In amending It. He thinks that any of them will be easily con? verted to this view by an examination of the results. Una Visited All. Every hotel in the State which comes within the meaning of that word by Ihc terms of the law. has been In? spected by 1'r. Klannagan. That Is, unless there are- places claimed to bo boarding houses which are taking transients. ?nd which have managed to get by without detection. In order to protect small places from the payment of the fee, the law exempts hotels hav? ing ten bed rooms or less from the In? spection. Herein lies one of the Injustices of the law, There are In several towns of the Stute two small hotels. One may have eleven or twelve rooms, and Is lnspecwd and made to piy the fee to the officer. Another, across the street, has nine, or ten ibedrooms. and Is In every way a competitor of tho first mentioned. Yet It cannot he touched, and the Inspector has no Jurisdiction to require It to comply with the requirements of the statute as to safety and sanitation, nor can he make It pay the fee. The proprie? tor of the slightly larger place kicks ?Justly so. In Dr. Klannugan's opinion. Another objection to the Bystem Is the latitude It allows the ofllcer him? self. Dr. Flunnugan does not want to be given such latitude. Every ylaco Inspected Is a room, and the officer can cull every bathroom or pantry a room, and charge for It. So If ho does not have a look at a room and doeB not charge for It because It Is unneces? sary, a rival proprietor tvis an Imme? diate kick on the size of his bin. A hotel with the same number of bed? rooms as a rival may havem more bathrooms and be charged more, and the owner cannot see why he should be required to pay It. Fault of Fee System. The root of the trouble seems to lie with the fee system. It is the rtrm be? lief of at least some of the Health Department officials that the fees should be abolished; that the expenses of Inspection should ioe paid by the State; thut no charge should be made to hotel keepers, and that every build? ing taking boarders for a price should be subject to inspection, whether hotel or boarding house. In this way the sanitary requirements .could be en? forced and the safety of the public in? sured, without the natural objection of the proprietor at being made to pay for something he does not seek. That vast benefits have resulted from the hotel inspection law is un? doubted by any one. In nearly every hotel In the State Dr. Plannagan has found some Infringement In the law?In most Instances slight such as failure to have proper signs pointing to fire escapes. Many places have been cleaned up and made lit for human habitation. Yet small hotels have Ibeen exempt and have not been touched. Proprietors everywhere h:ave showji a disposition to fully co-operate \eith Dr. Flan nagan, and have obeyed his instruc? tions to the letter. Every hotel man whose place has been Inspected has reported that he has made the changes required, save In the case of a few summer hostelrles, which were ylslted late, rand which have promised to comply with the law before opening next season. Certificates have been issued to all the others. Sanitary ar? rangements have been found rather better than was expected. Itabbl MlehnelMon to French. Rabbi I* B. Michaelson, of Trenton. N.

Gans-Rady Company PLAN CUTS CITY INTO FOUR WARDS (Continued From Firm Poire.) 1914 election, three Airmen arc. to be elected from euch uf the four wurds. ma king; a Hoard o.f twelve members. Voten lllmaelf Out. Mr. Rcnnolds, a member of the spe? cial committee, cheerfully voted for the plan as a forward step for the city, though rather ruefully admitting that It legislated him out of ofllce, certainly for two years. The members whose terms expire on August 31 next, and In whoso wards there will be no election, are Messrs. Atkinson, Bennett, Butler Cowardin, Hobson, Kaln. Moncure,' Moore, Patram and Retinoids. The ward lines ub recommended for adoption give to new Jefferson Ward four ?'hold-over" Aldermen. Messra. Adama. Grimes. Melton and Nclsen, who must serve until their terms expire, j when but three can be elected. Madison Ward will retain Messrs. I>onahoe, Per? due and Powers. Lee Ward will have Messrs. Bllley, Oilman. Grundy and Gunst until their terms expire, when but three arc to bo clecfcd. New Clay Ward has but two "hold-over" mem? bers. Messrs. Den Lcavy und Mitchell, making It necessary to order an clot, tlon for the Board In that ward next spring, when the term of President Whltlet expires. Police and Fire Ilnnrdx. All membera of the Police and Fire Boards hold office for the pernia for which they were elected, but as their terms expire, the offices are abolished until there Is left to be re-elected but one fire and one police cemmlssloner from each ward, as the charter speci? fies The Health nnd School Hourdr are nor selected along -ward lines. Members of the special committee spent several hours going over every detail of the plan. Btudylng maps and tables of all kinds. It was directed that' a large city map with the pro? posed new ward lines, suitably colored, be posted at once In the Council cham? ber for the Inspection of Councllmen and others Interested, and that copies of the ordinance be distributed to ull members. While the companion paper, still under consideration before the committee, will. If adopted. require charter changes, the reduction In the siv.o of the Council lies with the body Itself, and may be adopted without legislative enactment It was pointed out that since the annexation agree? ment with Manchester was adopted on report of a special committee, without reference to the Ordinance or Finance Committees, even though obligating the city for large sums, the report of this special committee need not be re fer.red or delayed, but that the Council might meet the Issue squarely and at, once. Munt Act at Once. It was brought out In the discussion that Immediate action was necessary, since, if udopted. the precinct lines will have to be arranged and the election books properly corrected In ample time for the Democratic primary of next April, as In that primary members of the Council for the next two years will be nominated. If the opponents can delay action until after that primary, the city will be tied to a Council of sixty-four mrmbors for another tw*i yenrs from next September. Members of the special committee which prepared the plan nnd unani? mously recommended Its adoption were Aldermen Rcnnolds and Don I.cavy: Councllmen Pollock, chairman; Reade and Lynch, and citizen members: L. Z. Morris. H. W. Rounrre? and C. V. Meredith. The committee will meet again next Monday night to take up In detail the final drift of the ordinance proposing the creation of an adminis? trative hoard of paid officials who shall Ibe charged with the duties of on executive nature now performed by committees of the Council, Including tho awarding of contracts and em? ployment of lnbor, an<j the supervision I of work and auditing of accounts.
