Titles Of Companies. Company A has been carrying the title of Richmond Grays more than llfty years B Company is the Walker ! Light Guurd, C the Guard of the Com? monwealth and lr the Anderson Light I Infantry.

DR.SMITHRESIGHS AS CITY PHYSICIAN Present System Providing Seven Sinecure Jobs May Be Abolished. Tho resignation of Dr. A. T.

President Robert Whlttet, Jr., has called a meeting of tho Board of Aldermen and Common Council In Joint session for 7:30 o'clock Monday, De? cember i. Immediately preceding tho December meeting of the Common Council, to elect his successor. Tho Second District, as outlined by the Health Department, lies mainly in what la known as Jefferson Wurd. The resignation of Dr. Smith has again brought up discussion of a plan more or leas beforo tho Council for 'Home mon'ths to abolish the present /system and In lieu thereof employ a city physician for his entire time. At present the city has seven dUtrlct phy? sicians, each drawing an annual salary of >800, making tho cost ?0,300, which Is provided in the pay roll of the Health Department, although the phy? sicians themselves aro elected by the Council, and have only nominal rota? tions to tho Health Department. In addition to salary, the city pro? vides telephonen for the district physi? cians, each of whom engages In pri? vate practice, merely serving the poor on call. It has been staled that a large number of physicians do as much char? ity practice as do the salaried physi? cians to the poor. A recent occasion, when a district physician collected a bill of J50 In addition to salary from the city for attending a Fewer employ* Injured while at work, has occasioned much comment, and there Is a wide? spread demand to reorganize tho sys? tem. It has been suggested that one physician to the poor be employ*-! for Ids wholo time, with ofllco at the City Horn?, roportlng tu the Committee ctt Belief of tho Poor, and another for medical supervl?lon of tho publlo fchoo!*, reporting to the School Board. This could be done, at less limn tl.o present cost of maintaining seven more or less slnecuro positions for physicians (who glvo little of their time to the city.
