I MAJORITY VOTE IS ! ALL THAT IS NEEDED - itTwo-Thirds of Aldermen N jt Required Because of Mills Amendment?City Attorney Rules That Council Has No Authority Over This Expenditure. Only a majority vote, of the mcm ?'ers of the Board of Aldermen present next Tuesday night Is required to cou cur lu the ordinance redlstrlctlng the city Into four wards, already adopted toy-; the Common Council. In a written opinion City Attorney Tolls rd holds that the Mills amendment malten no appropriation of money, nor does the ordinance Mud tho city for payment of uny sum of money for which Rich? mond Is not already specifically hound tinder sjtate law. When the ordinance came up In the Council on report of tho special com? mittee. It outlined a definite plan of rod.striding Into four wards, nnd in oJ later clause. In accordance with the' Code of Virginia, requested the Judge ot the Hustings Court to appoint com? missioners to correct the poll books j before tho next election. Mr. Mills contended that this would cntuil on the city some expense. Xlje rules Of the Council require that all appropriations of more than SI(>n shall Jiave a two-thirds recorded vote. Mr. Mills offered nnd secured adop? tion of an amendment prescribing that the allowance, so tnitde by tho Judge of the Hustings Court to commission? ers should not exceed J2.000. Mr. Peters still ruled that only a majority vote whs needed, and Is now sustained by the City Attorney, who holds that the Council cannot evade the payment of whatever allowances the Judge may make In such a case. Made Serious Slip. It Is now conceded by Mr. Mills and those with and against him that be made a serious slip in tho wording of Ills amendment. He la regarded as'one of the most alert and resourceful par? liamentarians In the Council, but in this care he failed to add after the "words, "not exceed (2,000," the further ? ?lause "which sum Is hereby appro , prlated." I If adopted that would have made a ?llstlnct appropriation on Hie books 'of tho City Auditor of $2.000 for the jjiurpose of paying tht commissioners Jjwhother the sum so provided wa3 snlll [clcnt or not. [>-? With that addition the ordinance ?would clearly have had In It tui ap? propriation, and >^j-oi)ld .have required la. two-thirds voie^itchiflt would have ? meant Its defeat, since it passed the Council, ?l to 19. Without that ad? dition the amendment adopted Is con? cealed not to be worth the paper on ?which It is written. and President Peters says now tbut he erred In en? tertaining any such amendment at all. The powers of the Judge of the Hust? ings Court In such cases uro provided by State law, and the city can no more limit tho Judge in what allowances he shall make than it could avoid the payment of the costs of conducting a State election or avoid tin payment of a Judgn.ent obtained against the city lit the State courts, oi the payment of expenses of condemnation proceedings on allowances fixed by the court. Tins ?situation was lully realized by all as booh as the Council adjourned Monday hight. vir. Pollock's Opinion, '.vfter reviewing the ordinance and the State and city statutes bearing Ton the ca.se at length. Mr. Pollard says in bis opinion: "Ry an examination of section 2 ot the proposed ordinance in the licht of these 1 Imitat Ions, |t j.. clear that there is no direct or itctaal appropriation of v.n,ny monoy provided for therein, and lienc.-e only a majority vote is neces nary for its adoption, hut I presume that the contention th'ril more thnn n. majority is required arls provision of section -. wh the city clerk i" notify 11 Court of the city of Ith I edoptlon of the ordlnnnc the wards ami requesting said court to appoint commissioners, whose dun it shall be to revise the registration books of the city mo as to place regis? tered voters in the propor ward and pr-clnct as provided by section loll ?>f the Code.of Virginia. l!io|, thereby accomplishing the transfer of regis? tered voters to their respective pre? cinct and ward without refoftlslrutlon of the voters. flul tliir provision of ?the proposed ordinance In connection with t).. tior. 101 t-c of tl-.o Co JJI04J and also i>. conn i general law of the St a Upon the several munb rotate the obligation t.-. i the the read lib!, t he all expenses of elect).. tili Ide for dilti drswlns to n plots r.ot yet "opeaod 'hutI u.?. then lose no 'iai?, I sts os. witliln tliclr boundaries. Reading the [ first part of section 1014-c it will bo : Keen that the positive obligation Is placed upon the Council to rodlatrlct the city Into wards, whenever by the last United States census or other j enumeration mode by nuthority of law ' it shall appear that the population of ' any ward exceeds that of any oth/t ward its much ns 3,000 Inhabitants, : hence, If there bo an expense, ns will | doubtless be tho case, and as the legis- i btture well know would be the case, It would necessarily place upon the city of Richmond, such expense result? ing from such rearrangement of the wards, which Is the result of a positive requirement of tho statute, which tho Council cannot, If they would, evade. It It were otherwise they might evade the duty by hiding behind a provision of the charter as to the particular vote ii.ssary. for the rearrangement. The imposition of the expense In file out- ; come of legislative action, and is to | be met whether '.ho Council would or ; not. "I, therefore, hold that the Council, with a quorum present, may, by a ma- i Jorlty vote, adopt tho ordinance." SCARCITY OF WATER Highland Park Residents Slay Soon Face a ] Kamin*.

Would Enlarge Epileptic Colony and Finish Ward for Crim? inal Insane. Under the most economical manage? ment of the four .State hospitals fori the Insane and the epileptic colony, the legislative committee of the Ooncrll I Hospital Board estimates that It will i need $600.000 per annum for the next two years, or a total of fl,200,000. Tho committee met Wednesday at tho epileptic colony to determine what it would ask from the Legislature. Of the total the .Stute epileptic colony's needs are plnce.l at 1210,t)Q0, which would provide not only lor 'the maintenance of 300 patients, thus re? lieving other hospitals of 200 epileptics and giving them room for that num? ber of insane people, but also for the buildings and equipment to care for the full number of patients for which the institution was Intended. With 300 patients the colony, it is be- | Moved, can be economically operated, i but with only 100 It cannot be, and this will be emphasized. One thing specially needed is the lom plctlOii at Marion of the ward for tho criminal Insane, which Is no-.' incom Pl-te, and is held up for want of funds. There arc In all tho hospitals Insane men who are dangerous criminals, and yet there is no means of keeping them safe. Perhaps the hospital which Is In the direst straits Is the Central, at Peters? burg, where there are 1.400 colored in? sane, and which is so crowded that many have not beds and have to sleep o the floor. "While the cost of sup portl g a patient at other asylums Is inure (hail $200 a year, at Petersburg, by re son of the large number of pa? tients, the cost of each last year !s said to have been less than $100, while there is even then a large dctlclt which the coming Legislature will have to make good. While there are four hospitals for the white insane and epileptic patients, there is only one lor all the colored, and that one not half as well equipped as any one of the other hospitals.

FEDERAL AGENTS FACE AN INQUIRY Government Official Sent Here to Investigate Reported Fric? tion. SEEM AT CROSS PURPOSES Employes of Collector's Force Testified for Defense at a Trial. Acting upon tho memorandum filed In the office of the clerk of the United Slates District Court and a copy of which was forwarded to tho Treasury Department and to the Attorney-Gen? eral, Rcvonue Agent 1* G. Nutt, of Pittsburgh, Pa., hue been sent to Richmond to seo If any differences oxist between tho olttcos hero of the Intornnl rcvenuo agent and of tho collector of revenue. Accompanied by a stenographer, Mr. Nutt yesterday was given space in the un.oc of tho district attorney lit the Federal building, where ho will con? duct the investigation, which will prob? ably lake somo tlmo. May 'ink.: Depositions. fio far ho has only concerned blm Rclf with examining ofllco records nnd ttolnn- Into the details of thu methods oi regulating tho operation of dis? tilleries In this district. It Is said to ho likely that ho will shortly begin taking depositions and affidavits. This investigation grew out of the fact that several members of tho olllce and Held force of Collector M. K. Dowry Were summoned to testify in tho Fed? eral court for the defense and against the case of the government, which wns prosecuting employes of n local distil? lery for alleged violations of tho llquoi laws on etiurges brought by Colonel W. H. Chapman, rcvenuo ageii*. .ludgo Waddlll did not think such nctlon In keeping with propriety and tiled the memorandum calling the at? tention of the officials to his beller that friction existed between the two offices. Tho deputy collectors and gangers maintain that there was nothing wrong in their testifying for the defense, pointing out that they had been duly summoned, nnd If they bad refused to respond they would bnve been held In contempt of court. Congress .May Act, The department has been slow in starting the. investigation, nnd this fact has led to the belief that it Is the oitrpose to make It of n sweeping nature, and In some quarters It has b>-en Intimated tbnt there would likely be some congressional action. Apparently there are grounds In be? lieve that the scope of the Invostiga i. i will go beyond the Internal reve? nue department in Richmond and em? brace some of the other branches of tha Federal government here. i.owever, nothing dolinlte In this direction has been announced, Never? theless, many local employes of Uncle Sam are much Interested in the work of Mr. Nutt, and eagerly waiting to see what developments there will be. Richmond Manufacturers Become Corporate Body, With Reg? ular Officers. The Richmond Manufacturers' Ex? hibit, planned to bring wares made in this city prominently before the buy? ers of this and other States, attained corporate existence yesterday when a charter was Issued by the Slate Cor? poration Commission constituting It a regular organised commercial body. Conceived several months ago, by a few of the more enterprising manu- \ fnclurcrs, the project has since re < et-od the support of the city's reprc- i sontatlvc business men and bids fair to | become a valuable Instrument In spreading the name and fame of Kleb- 1 inond-inade products through the land. The charter sets forth that the ex-) Id It Is created for the mutual bene? fit of its members and of the citizens of Richmond generally, and that it is in no sense a money-making enter? prise. The capital Is fixed at S?.oou maximum and $1,000 minimum, di? vided .uto shares bavins u par value of $23 each. Most of these. It Is stated, have already been subscribed for.

PARDON STATEMENT DENIED Governor Very Angry?Schcrcr Explains That Remark Was Entirely Jocular, Dr. Charles V. Carrlngton offered his services ul the penitentiary yesterday morning at the usual hour for the physician to inuko his rounds, and by order ot the board ho was denied ad? mission by Superintendent James M. Wood, ns was Mated In The Tlmea DLspnlch, would be the result. At the City Circuit Court It was stated that the prison board and auper I Intendont were entirely within their lights. Oh last Tuesday Judge R. Car? ter Scott entered a mandamus ordor declaring that Or.

A stay of the Her- | vlco of that mandamus was lator grant? ed for a period of live days for tho I Attorney-General to appeal to the Su? preme Court.

After the service of such a paper. ? wero tho superintendent or prison I board to refuse admission to tho sur | Bonn, It Is Mated that It would be ' clearly contempt of court. As It stands I however, the board thinks that until ) the live days elapse tho order of the i court declaring l)r. Carrlngton to_ bo tho surgoon of the Institution ls*not In effect, and the board and superin? tendent wero. therefore, within their rights In refusing him admission. Or. W. T. Openhlmer is the defacto sur? goon. having been appointed for tho unexplred term, when Dr. Carrlngt ?n was removed. Trlnl on Saturday. Recognizing the act of the court In reinstating the surgeon, though not conceding Its correctness, the prison directors have nerved formal notlco on Dr. Carrlngton that they will pro? ceed to a trial, with it view to his formal ami legal dismissal on Satur? day afternoon ut 3 o'clock. By this step the prison authorities expect to remedy the defect pointed out in their former summary action before the five day stay expires, and so remove the surgeon by ?lue process of law before he can bo again reinstated as tho ac tiiul surgeon in attendance. Many witnesses are belnc; summoned by th sheriff of the city of Richmond to at? tend the hearing at the olilcc of tho prison on Saturday, whon the board i will sit ns n court examining' wlt nessej under oath.
