Rare Quality of Gratitude in
Little Girl Whose Wheel
Was Stolen.
It Is not often thnt police officers
are rewarded with appreciation ami
gratitude for their lnbor in arresting]
thieves and recovering stolen articles.
Their 'Work generally goes unnoticed,:
for the public soon forgets Its servants
and rewards them not beyond their
pay.
But Detective Sergeant Bailey has
been rewarded with a letter of thanks.;
written to him by'a little girl whose I
bicycle had been stolen, and which
he recovered. The wheel belonged to
her mother, now gone to her rest, and ?
It was especially prized for that reuHon.
Following is the letter from the girl:
"2.-0 East Grace Street,
"Richmond, Va.. October 2i<. 1311.
?'Dear Mr. Bailey.?Thank you so
much for the help you gave in secur?
ing my wheel for me I was terribly
worried fot fear 1 would never see my
little wheel again. Besides prizing It
be' au'so it was mother's. I love to ride,
so It would have spoiled my greatest
pleasure to lose It.
"Your little friend,
(f-'ignedi "I >AbI.AS BURROWS."
Not to be outdone and to show his
own appreciation. Sergeant Bailey sat
him down and labored over a letter In
reply. He said he would keep the little
girl's letter as long as ho lived, be?
cause it is the only one of the kind
ho has. i

Drunkards.
MOORE MEMORIAL FAVORED
Would Pay Tribute to Confed?
erate Surgeon?Doctors End
Session.
After heinc, in session since Tues
u\>\ evening, the Medical Society of
Virginia finished Its labors early yes?
terday ntternoon and adjourned to
meet next year in Norfolk. The day
was devoted to the reading of papers,
for the most part of interest chiefly
to the medical profession, and to the
finishing ?p of various mntters of
business.
The convention this year was marked]
by an unusually large numher of able
addresses, said to excel In this re?
spect any previous meeting of the so?
ciety. Especially interesting and
scholarly were the addresses delivered
by invited lecturers from other .States.
In point of attendance the meeting
just closed lopped the other conven?
tions of the society by a considerable
number. Most of the delegates left
the city for their homes by the after?
noon trains, a few remaining over for
the boats and trains last night.
The convention' opened yesterday
morning with an address by Dr. C. C.
Miljer, of New Market, on tho subJLsct,
'?Can the Malarial Parasite lie Culti?
vated? What Is the Malarial Puru
slte?"
Favor Farm for Inebriates.
From the point of view of the lay?
man the second paper of the day held
especial Interest. Dr. Stephen Harns
berger, of Cailett. discussed the topic,
"Our Neglected Drunkurds: What Vir?
ginia Should Do for Them.-' He drew
u harrowing picture of the results of
the drink evil, und of the utter Indif?
ference of the State as to devising
means for dealing with the habitual
drunkard. His contention was thai
the State should provide an asylum or
other sultahle retreat for this class of
unfortunates, where they could be
given scientific treatment, and per?
haps cured. The address made a deep
impression on the assembly and caused
a member to introduce a resolution be?
fore the society, calling upon the presi?
dent to appoint a committee of seven
to go before the next Legislature and
urge the establishment by the State
of a farm for Inebriates.

YOUTH CONFESSES
TO MANY THEFTS
Raymond Smith Again in
Trouble, and May Go to
Reform School.
PLUNDER FOUND IN YARD
Arrests Follow Many Com?
plaints Made of Small
Robberies.
After numerous complulnts of house
thefts had been roported to police
headquarters, Raymond Smith, six?
teen years old. of 233 South Second
Street, and Edwin Scott, twelvo years
old. of 110 North Third Street, wero
arrested yesterday ufternoon by De?
tective-Sergeant Wiley and Detectives
Krengel and Gentry as suspicious char?
acters, and Tony Kocchlccloli was also
arrested on suspicion of having bought
some' of the stolen plunder. Rocclilc
ctoll's real name Is said to be Glovati
nettl.
The two boys are Implicated by the
I detectives in six cases of theft. They
are charged with stealing an apul
and diamond ring from Miss Constan.o
Anderson. of Fifth and Franklin
Streets: a gold watch and chain and a
pocket pencil from 1?. D. Martin, 003
East Grace Street; a gold watch and
chain, a signet ring and a plain gold
wedding ring from-Mrs. Mary E. Kus-.
sell, of 302 West Main Street, r.n.l
other property which has not yet been
Identified. Among the latter Is a slg
het ring with the letter "H" engraved
on it. which the boys admitted having
stolen from a house near Randolph ard
Main Streets; a gold dollar on the
back of which Is engraved the word
"Mother." and two gold watches, to ono
of which a rope chain It attached.
Answered Dencrlptlon.
Miss Anderson reported the theft
from her on yesterday, and the detec?
tives immediately began scouring the
city for Raymond Smith, as a descrip?
tion given of the thief led them to be?
lieve that he was the boy wonted. De?
tective Krengel met them on Main
Street, riding hired bicycles.
"HI. Mr. Krengel," they shouted in
salutation.
"Hi." he answered batfk. "Come over
here. I want to see you. Never was
gladder to see anybody in my life.
Where Is that ring. Raymond?"
"At home."
"Where is the watch?"
"Sold It to a negro."
The boy answered the questions with
amazing frankness. He haw been re?
leased from custody so often that he
seems to believe that the thefts alleg?
ed against him are regarded by the
police as nothing more than boyl.sh
pranks. But the police are serious.
Plunder Is Found.
The detectives uccompanled Raymond
I to his home, und beneath several bricks
hidden In the yard, was found some ofj
the plunder. Smith also admitted hav-i
ing stolen $10 from Martin's room. Fie
lost the money, he said, shooting crap.
Smith as been In trouble many times
He has escaped punishment because of
an Injury he received to his head several
years ago. For weeks he lay In the
Virginia Hospital unconscious, and it
was feared that he would never recov?
er. 'But he did recover, and since then,
the police claim, he has been a thief.
He has given tho authorities much
trouble, and Justice Grlggs, now sit?
ting for Justice Crutchtield, will be
asked to send him to the reformatory.
WANT CAMP'S HISTORY

Veterans, was again discussed at a
meeting held lnst night. No definite
action wn? taken, as the matter Is now
In the hands of a committee. However.
It was the sense of the members pres?
ent that Adjutant J. Taylor Stratton i

said that he would ihegin the work:
after January 1 If It was derided by
the camp.that It was Its wish that he
take it up.

Broad Street Methodist in Worst

Spires of St. Mary's Catholic Churah,
! at Third and Murshall Streets; of St.
I Joseph's Catholic Church, colored, on
j North First Street, and of Ebenerer
Baptist Church, colored, at Leigh und
Judah Streets, were found to be in un
aafo condition by Deputy Building In?
spector Phillips yesterday, and orders
were Issued by Building Inspector Beck
for their removal.
The spire of St. John's German Evan?
gelical Church, at Eighth und Murshall
Streets, was examined und lound to
require some repulrs, but not to be
in dangerous condition. The splro of
Parle Pluce Methodist Church, ut Pine
and Franklin Streets, was found to be
In porfect order, all of dressed heart

will continue until every wooden spire

Will Take So Hiimb. Measure*.
In vie v.- of the uses to winch the

spector Beck says he does not wish to

case he is merely notifying the chair?
men of the boards of ollicers, so that
the changes can lie made without fur?
ther official action. L'nloss the notices
arc Ignored, there will be no court
proceedings.
In tho case of Broad Street Methodist
Church, the spire is held to be in a
dungcrous condition, the woodwork
rotten from the base up, und many of
the cross-supportb out of pluce; also
that the. Gtecplo rocks noticeably in
even a moderate wind. immediate
steps should be taken, It is suid, to
brace the steeple with scaffolding,
pending Its removal. L T. ChrlBitun,
chairman of tho board of trustees, has
culled a meeting to consider pluns for
immediate alterations.
Services will be held as usual to?
morrow In Broad Street Church,
the situation Is not regarded as imme?
diately dangerous, unless In a high
wind.
Churehr. Mnj lie L'.srd.
in the cases of the First Presbyte?
rian church and the Seventh Street
Chrlstlah Church, where the steeples
have been condemned and ordered re?
moved, their condition is regarded as
by no means so dangerous. It is prob?
able that the use of the church build?
ings, pending repairs, will not be Inter?
fered with. H. w. Wood, president of
the board of deasons of the First Pres.
bytcrlan Church, and T. M. Hundley,
chairman Of the official hoard of Sev?
enth Street Christian Church, have
notified Mr. Reck that they have called
meetings to take up the matter at once.
The spires will probably be removed
as Aoon as plans can be drawn fpr
harmonizing the architectural appear?
ance of the fronts of the buildings, as
in neither case Is It anticipated that
tho spires will be robullt of fireproof
material, because the cost Involved
and to the probability of both churchos
eventually moving westward.
The Highest in the liest.
The highest spire in the city?that
of the Grace Street Presbyterian
Church?has been found to be In ex?
cellent order, and tho. Inspectors ex?
press the highest approval of the class
of workmanship found In the spire of
Park Place Methodist Church, where
everything Is In first-class order. The
repairs needed at St. John's German
Evangelical Church will not. it is be?
lieved, he expensive, nor will they con?
flict with the building code require?
ments as to wooden steeples.
Ebenerer Baptist Churr.n. colored. Is
now undergoing extensive repairs, and.
Its officers, when Shown samples of,
worm-eaten wood chipped from the
supporting beams of the spire, assured
tho inspectors that the architects
would begin at once on plans for a!
modified cupola to take the place of
the present spire.
In the ease of the two Catholic
Churches examined yesterday?St. I
Mary's, at Third and Marshall, nn<I St.
Joseph's, for colored people, on North
First Street?the spires are not tall,
and are perhaps not In absolutely dan?
gerous condition. To make the repairs
that would be required. he>wever, would
necessitate the tearing of the present
work all to pieces, replacing a large
number of beams?work that would
probably be both expensive and in
violation of the building code require?
ment as to fireproof church spire con?
struction. I
Expects to Move Shortly.
Father Edwards, of St. Mary's, nHked
whether tint steeple would not stand
for five years, saying thut by that
tlnle the church would probably be
moved to the neighborhood of the
Benedictine College, in the West End.
When shown specimens of worm-eaten
timber broken from the supporting
beams, ho agreed It woul<] bo neces?
sary to remove the spire at once.
The Inspectors have not yet made
n report on the condition of Trinity
Methodist spire, which has been partly
examined. Much of the woodwork In
Broad Street Methodist Church spire
was found to be very deceptive, having
rotted from the centre toward the out?
side, a sharp blow from a hatehnt In
some instances driving the blade three
inches into worm-eaten wood, where
the outside looked sound and llrm.
The examination showed In the case
of the First Prcsbyterlnn Church
steeple thnt aside from the character
of its timbers, the spire itself wns
eight or ten inches out of plumb, and
since there is little or no evidence of
settling, It must have been so since It
wns built by the city when it was
moved under tho agreement which se?
cured for the muTilclpality the site for
the City Hall.
Several other steeples arc yet to ho
examined.

the Brandon, of her distress, and he
went to her aid. The Brandon did not

early this morning. It was not neces?
sary for tho smaller vessel to come

Bishop Ouerry saw a menace in the]
intellectual training of the negro with?

meant placing in the hands of the ne?

CHORUS GIRL. ILL,
GOESTONEW YORK
Miss Olsen, Stricken With Ap?
pendicitis, Refuses Treat?
ment Here.
Miss Ester Olsen, a member of the
"Miss Innocence" chorus, did not take
her place on the Academy stage last
night. She became suddenly III at
her room In the Richmond Hotel, and
when a physician, wJto was hurriedly
summoned, made an examination ho
found that she was suffering with nn
attack of appendicitis, almost of the
acute form. An operation was neces?
sary, hut Miss Olsen sa'd that she
would not undergo nn operation In
Richmond, that she preferred to return
to New York, even with its attendant
risk. She could not bo persuaded to
go to a local hospital, and when she
held out there was nothing to do but
to put her on a truln.
Miss Olsen lias been In this country

from Sweden, and. llko many foreign- i
era. she believed that aho could only!
get the attention she. noeded In New:

Rumors of Police Interference
Added Greatly to Public
Interest.
Reports which gained rather free
circulation in tho city yesterday that
the Muyor and the police would pro?
hibit the second performance of "Mls?
Innijcence" at the Academy of Music
last ulglit threw cold water on the
hopes of that vast multitude which
wob eager to see the show after it
heard that It was some performance.
As might have been expected, there
was a line of people around tho Acad?
emy long beiaru the tlmo set for the
opening of the doors, and another fash?
ionable lino which rolled up/' In motor
curs and sea-going hacks. But noDody
interfered. indejrd, no attempt wa?
made to stop It, for Chief of Police
Werner, who was present on Thursday
night, informed Mayor Richardson that
police action was hurdly necessary.
Having been reformed um to what
might be expected, the big audience
last night was not shocked. Nobody
left, and a whole l>unch of people com?
plained rather Wtterly because they
were 'unablo to bujr seats and because
of tho ordinance whloh prohibits the
solo of standing room tickets.
So many attractions ha\o been held
up In Richmond that theatrical people
uro a bit skittish. When "The Blue
Mouse" ha/1 to quit aftir one perform?
ance, and when Tho Girl from Rec?
tor's" was politely notified that she
had better run along to Durham, there
was really a question as to whether or
not "Miss" Innocence" could get by. but
she did, an#* she got by so rapidly that
she could easily fill the theatre again
I to-night. Whatever opinion people
may hold regarding such attraction*.
It is certain that thoso who saw It last
night were not squeamish. They
rather liked It. If one may Judge solely
by the appluuso.
