Local Companies of First Regi?
ment to Be Known as Rich?
mond Grays.
Desiring for many reasons to be
known hereafter by a distinctive ap?
pellation, the officers of the first Bat- i
talion. First Regiment, at a meeting :
hold last night, voted unanimously to
ydopt the name "The Richmond
Grays," to be hereafter used when the
battalion is referred to Of course,
tor otllcial purposes the four Richmond
companies must continue to be called
the First Battalion, First Regiment,
juRt as the Richmond Howitzers uro
officially Battery A, First Battalion of j
Field Artillery.
This move was taken by the officers
with a great deal of enthusiasm, all
seeming to think that It spelled an
added dignity to the battalion. in '
the matter of history, the companies
feel that they can show an honorable
record dating from war limes, and
thai the adoption of this name will
serve to enlist tli*t "moral and personal
support of many of 'the older genera?
tion who know what the first Regi?
ment did in days of strife.
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. The name of the ilrays was i
chosen for the battalion because 11 can
be best adapted to the colors which it |
Is proposed to be worn.
Oh this feature, a committee was:
appointed to look into u distinctive I
dress uniform for the officers and men
of the entire battalion. Some samples
and designs have, already been under
consideration. These uniforms, of
gray, would be won. on all unofficial
occasions, as are those of the Blues,
but while under orders prescribed by
the War Department Ills regular cloth?
ing must be used.
The committee will Inquire inlo lh,j
cost ot the. uniforms and report on
ways and means of securing the funds.
It is believed that the Flrsl Regiment
Association, which will meet nc\t
Monday night, will gi\e its support
to the proposition.

Auction Sale?Report by

Immediate repairs to tlie . Richmond
dock were linully put beyond possi?
bility yesterday when appeal and su
persedeas bonds were executed before
the State Corporation Commission by
IS. U. Bcmlss. representing tho bond?
holders' committee' of the William R.
Triff? Company. U M. Willlums was
surety on the bunds.
The amount of bond llxed by the
Supreme Court on the appeal, which
was allowed tho owners of the dock,
was $500, whUe the supcrsedous bond,
tlxod by the commission, was placed
at J1.000. The Smallness of this sure?
ty caused some surprise, since it is
supposed to cover any possible loss
which may accrue to the city of Rich?
mond and'to tho business houses situ?
ated on the dock by reason of the do
day. In the event the dock owners
cventuully lose In the Supreme Court.
However, the sum was fixed by agree?
ment between the attorneys.
It Is hoped . to secure argument
curly in the January term, and to get
a decision by February 1.

Present System Providing Seven
Sinecure Jobs May Be
Tho resignation of Dr. A. T. Smith
as district physician of District No. 3
was handed to City Clerk Ben T. Au?
gust yesterduy, to take effect Novem?
ber 30. . 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. II is significant tint
