IB Cin WHARF
Allport & Son, of Richmond,
Will Complete Work in Six
Months for $23,999.50.
The Council Com ml tee on Improve?
ment of the .lames River last night
awarded to II, ,M. Allport & Son, of
Richmond, the contract for the con?
struction of the new municipal wharf
on the north side of the river, be?
tween Gilles Creek and Nicholson
Street. The bid was $23,990.30, the
?hart to be completed in six months.
Other bids submitted \\fcre as fol?
lows: Thomas Shouhun, of Roanokc,
$21,316, 120 days, and Alsop Ai Tierce,
01 Newport News, $23,30(1, 260 days.
Thoimh the bid of Alsop & Pierce
was lower than thai of Allport Ai Son
it was the sense ol the members of
the committee that as the latter llrm
ngrcod to complete the work at an
earllei' date than tin; former tt was a
point In favor of the local bidders. An?
other point in favor of the success?
ful bidder was that it was the wish
of the committee to patronize home
industry as far as possible.
As no proposals for excavation work,
which will be necessary, were submit?
ted, it was decided by the commit?
tee that this be done by the munici?
pal dredging plant under the super?
vision of the City Engineer.
in awarding the contract for the
wharf the committee accomplished
what it has considered a public neces?
sity for a long while, und for which
there bus been a constant demand.
The contract time for the comple?
tion or the work i.-six months, but All
port Ai Son assured the commit toe thai
I It would be ready In less than four
months.

KICK ABOUT STATION
Complaints of Chatham People Heard
l>y Corporation Commission.1 i
Station facilities at the town of
Ciiatnnni were under consideration
yesterday at a public hearing held by ?
the State Corporation Commission. A |
formal complaint against the Southern
Railway was filed and prosecuted by
Dr. W. P. Parrlsli, Mayor of the town.
W. P, Tredwny. attorney for the
town, introduced Charles E. Perry, .7. P.
Hunt, .1. .1, Patterson and Dr. Purrlsh
as witnesses. They testified that the
facllltes were entlreliy Inadequate both
as to the handling of freight and the
conveniences for passengers. It Is dlf- I
ficillt, they said, to get freight un- I
loaded and loaded at the station, '
where wagons are forced to remain for
it long time. Passenger facilities are,
said to be badly congested.
It seemed to be the disposition of '
the Southern, which was represented
by R. 11. Tunstall. of Norfolk, to admit
that changes were necessary, or at
least desirable. The only witness for
the road wns II. E. Ilutchlns, general
superintendent for the northern dl- i
vision. He explained the impractl- '
cabMlty of enlarging the str.tlon In
certain respects.
At the conclusion, the railroad
agreed to submit to the commission
some possibilities in Hie woj? of pluns
for betterment.

APPEAL BY COMMONWEALTH
Several Petitions for Writs Dis?
posed Of?Court Adjourns
to January 9.
After handing down only one deci?
sion?alllrmlng the ttthstltu llohality
of the law permitting the Issuance of
county roud bonds payable out of dis?
trict levies?the Supreme Court of
Appeals adjourned yesterday for tho
term. It will meet a gain In this city
on January 9.
The decision In tho road cuse. which
came up from Tnzcwell county on peti?
tion of C. J. Moss, settles no now point.
The merits of tho proposition were
settled last spring In a case from Jl>ee
county, but in Hint instance the court
merely refused n write of error, with?
out Hiving a written opinion. As this
did not appear to altogether satisfy
purchasers of bonds In other States,
who perhaps did not understand Vir-'
glnla procedure, tho Tazewcll suit was
brought as .1 friendly proceeding in
order to get n positive rather than u
negative expression of opinion from
the co,urt. I
LcKlfilaturc Supeme.
That the decision Is positive, there
can be no doubt. It says that the
proposition that the power of the leg?
islature Is supreme Is elementary, and
that where doubt arises It is to be re?
solved in favor of the existence of tho
power. This canon of construction is i
held to bb essential to the lite of the !
State, anrl Is always Jealously guarded
by the courts. j
Counties can contract for road loam '
and issue bonds to pledge repayment,
but magisterial districts cannot do so. I
Inov arc creuted for political admin- j
Istrattvc! purposes of nn exceedingly '?
limited chnrncter. Therefore there Is 1
no doubt that the full faith and credit
of the county Is pledged to the pay- 1
rnont of road bonds Issued under the '
act. Its liability is not diminished by '
a method of payment of the principal
und interest Involving a levy on the
funds of the district- The court llnds
that tile Tnzewell election was hcl?
In accordance with the law, that the
law Is constitutional, end '.hat tne
bonds are valid. The opinion was by
Judge Whittle.
All of the other cases hoard at tho
November term now go over to the
January term before decisions can be
secured.
The Commonwealth was granted a
writ of error in the case of Chnrl-es 1
Bass, from Hanover county. Bass was
tried before a . Justice and convicted
of selling liquor without a license, be?
ing flne,t Jf>0. This he paid, according
to the Commonwealth, although he
claims that lie merely gave his' note
for the sum. On uh appeal to the Cir?
cuit Court the accused was acquitted.
The Commonwealth appealed on the
ground that after payment of tho lino
the case was closud. and the Circuit
Court erred In admitting an appeal to
it. On the other hand, the defense
nsscrts I bat Inasmuch as a bond to
Keen the peace, also required by lliu
justice, had not (teen executed, tho
oennltv had not been pnld, and tho
man had the right of appeal.
T. A. Clattcrbuck wns refused a writ
of error In his appenl from a decision
In favor of the town of Culpiper.
Clattcrbuck sold to the town the ngnt
to maintain an intake at the dnm 01"
Its water works on Hungary Hun. He
clnlmed that debris cleaned from the
water was being; thrown on valuable
land belonging to him. while it jould
he thrown on somebody else's land on
the other side, where It would do Ittlo
or no namago. An Injunction agalnnl
the town was refused.
The court also refused a writ of
error to Wolter Jennings, who was
convicted of breaking Into a car of
the Southern Railway for the purpose
or robbery. He was given eighteen
months in the penitentiary, to which
was added five years for the second
offense. The petition Is rather remark?
able In that It contains pracaltcalty
no argument for a now trial.
Tho nnse of the Washington-South?
ern Railway ugalnst Grovee's adminis?
trator, begun Tuesday, was arguod
yesterday by Creed M. Fulton and
Lewis IT. Machen for the appellee, and
by Hill Carter for, the appellant, and
submitted.

JACKSON STATUE

Funds.
DR. J. P. SMITH PRESIDENT
Veterans, Daughters and Sons
Represented in List of
Officers.
For the purpose of. carrying out
What was generally confessed to ho
n long-neglected duty on the part ??r
Richmond and Virginia and the South
I ?the erection in this city of an cquea
I trlan statue of General Thomas J.
Jackson, "The Stonewall Jackson
Monument Association" was organized
Inst night at a meeting of those In?
terested, held at Leo Camp Hall. The
offlcerB and directors were requested
to proceed at once ? to apply for a
charter to the State Corporation Com?
mission.
I As president of the association, there
was chosen by unanimous vote, Rev.
James Power Smith, D. 1)., the sur?
viving member of General Jackson's
staff. As ho will bo absent from tho
city for scvcrnl moiiios, Dr. Smith
I thought some other should be elected.
1 Hut General Chariots J. Anderson,
seconding his nominal I n, said that
should the association be organized,
and the South should hear that Dr.
Smith had not been elected president,
the members would ho unablo to ex?
plain. Dr. Smith .at last yielded.
Roll of Oniccrn.
Other officers are as follows: Judge
George L? Christian, first vice-presi?
dent, from Veterans; Mrs. Edgar D.
? Taylor, second vice-president, from
Daughters of the Confederacy; V?. j
Wltchor Keen, third vice-president,
from Sons of Veterans; Captain Wll- j
11am M. Myers, who began the present
movement, secretary; Elmore D.
Hotchklss, treasurer. Directors?D. C.
Richardson, J. Thompson Brown and
\V. S. Archer, of Rlclunonu and Major
William A. Anderson, of Lexington,
from veterans; Mrs. Norman V. Ran?
dolph, Miss Kate Mason Rowland. Mrs. j
Charles E. Boiling and Mlsg Annie I
Boykin. from Daughters of the Con?
federacy; General W. W. Sale, Colonel
John S. Horwood, Major T. M.
Wortham and Edwin P. Cox, from Sons
of Veterans.
It will be provided that wOien the
monument Is completed, It shall be
turned over to the Slate. Details of
securing the money?whether solely
from the General Assembly of Vlrglnln
or from the Legislatures of all South?
ern States, or from the public at large,
or from all theso sources?will be
worked out later.
Women Will Help.
Mrs. Randolph explained that the
Daughters of the Confederacy, as a
body, were pledged not to take up any
monumental work until the memorials
i at Shlloh and at Arlington are com?
pleted. However, members of this or?
ganization may do what they wish In?
dividually, and. ns .Mrs. Randolph re?
marked, probably by the time the other
monuments .vre off their hands, the
veterans will be in difficulties with the
Jackson statue, and the Daughters be
called upon to unravel the situation.
Frank S. Woodson, who wrote the
original articles on the subject two
years ago, said that the 5Uggostlon
came from W. Wltcher Keen, of this
I city. In recognition of this and of Mr.
Keen's activity, he was made a vice
president.
Surrendering the gavel to President
James Power Smith, Temporary Chair?
man D. C. Richardson said that In or?
ganising an association to perpetuate
the memory of General Jackson, the
1 eyes of the South would be upon Dr.
i Smith.
Dr. Smith Speaks.
! The former captain and nlde-dp
I camp on Jackson's staff spoke briefly
of the subject that is always near his
I heart. He said that those present rep
I resented a great company of people
I of the city, the State and the South In?
terested in the project. He had found
' the sentiment for a Jackson statue
everywhere.
"Richmond," he said, "owes Jarkson
a great debt; Richmond owes It to her?
self to remember him. His Valley cam?
paign was In defense of this city. With
his little army, after reinforcement by
General Bwoll, poorly fed and poorly
clothed, he kept occupied in the moun?
tains of Virginia 100.000 men. Then,
coming to the Chickahominy, he helped
Lee drive away from Richmond an?
other 100,000 under McClellan. The
erection of a monument Is a great
duty which Richmond owes to history
and to those who come after us.
Neglected Duty.
"This city is alreudy distinguished
by Its monuments. Recently I read
in an English magazine a criticism of
the great number of monuments in
London, so mnny of them of men not
especially distinguished, and many
without taste n-nd without art. f do
not know of any in Richmond which
has been seriously criticized by compo
I tent persons. I am most Impressed with
? those which bear no name?tho How
I itzers 'Monument and that to tho pri
I vale soldlors and sailors; to these I
j bare my head when 1 approach. Then
I we have the three great equestrian
statues and monuments to Washing?
ton. Lee and Stuart. All arc to men
I worthy of t'hem, and go to the
I education and inspiration of our peo?
ple?all were bulU for Hie elevation
and benefit of our sons and daughters.
"I pray that wa may continue the
erection of monuments to men worthy
of 'them. I hope the. tlmo has come
when the long-negleoted obligation to
General Jackson may be accomplished."

person of John Turner a slxtoon-year
old negro, Detective-Sergeants Wiley
and Kellsm yesterday morning solved
the mystery of a jewelry theft In Roa
noko on November 11, and charged the
young negro with tho crime.
The Jewelry, which has boo partial?
ly identities from the descrpltlon sent
out by the Roanoke police, was stolen
from the store of ,1. T. Hcncbry, 108 1-3
: Salem Avenue, Southwest, Roanoke.
Tho two detectives ha(| leurned that
i the negro was In town, and begun
their search for him early In the
morning. They sighted him on Droad
Street, and followed him for two hours.
All unsuspecting, the negro entered
a pawnshop on West Droud Street and
attempted to dispose of some of the
stolen loot. He put on a show of In?
dignation at first, but soon quietly
submitter to arrest. 11c was Imme?
diately taken to police headquarters,
where he was tioarched.
