Work Satisfactory and Prices
Lower Than Those Paid
by the State.
Contracts tor city printing, advertis?
ing, binding and stationery for the
y<'nr 1912 were awarded by the. Coun?
cil Committee on Printing and Claims
last night. Tho advertisement for
proposals brought only a few bids, but
the prices were stated to bo extremely
low In nearly every Instance.
Por general printing of city ordi?
nances, advertising and proposal forme,
the only bidder for publication in Eng?
lish was the Richmond Virginian, at
24 cents per inch, nonpareil, and 20
cents per Inch for tax notices.
For printing the samo notices In
German, the only bidder was the Dally
German Advertiser, at 20 cents per
Inch, nonpnrell, and 35 cents for tax
notices. Contracts were awarded to
both papers In accordance with their
bids.
One Old for Printing-.
The only bid for city printing came
from Clyde W. Saundcrs, who has held
the contract for the past year. Mr.
Adams, who was chairman of a sub?
committee to open the bids, said that,
the prices were remarknhly low for
printing, though tho bid for pRper and
supplies was not so low. Chairman
Atkinson remarked that tho State of
Virginia la now paying IS cents for
ortain grades of printing which the
city secures under the new contract
for 8 cents, and the contract for both
Jo'n and book work was awarded to
Mr. Saunders, tho resolution giving
f'lerk Uzcklo] authority to supervise
delivery. Chairman Atkinson called
attention to the fact that tho city re?
ports for 1010 have not been deliv?
ered, though thoy should have come
from the printer more than .?even
months ago. and are now. to a large
extent. Valueless, as nearly a year has
passed since they were complied. The
clerk was given authority to supervise
this class of work and require deliv?
ery in a reasonable time.
Illiidint; nnd Stationery.
There wero two bids for the annual
binding contract, proposals being sub?
mitted by S. P. Atkins and Weym?utn,
Meister & Smethle. After examination,
a subcommittee reported that Wey
mouih. Meister & Smethle. who held
the contract last year, were tho lower
bidder, and tho contract was so
awarded.
There was but one hid to supply the
city departments with stationery for
the year--from the Southern Stamp1
and stationery Company. Manager
Kosendorf admitted that In some In?
stances hls prices wero higher than
last year, ns on some. Items of goods
furnished the city he had lost money,
but there being no other proposal, the
contract was awarded to the only bid?
der, without being read.
The same bonds as heretofore were
required of the various contractors.

COUNCIL TO STOP
STREET NUISANCE
Holiday Custom of Shooting
Cannon Crackers Won't Pre^
vail Next Year,
PUBLIC DEMANDS NEW LAW
Ordinance Being Framed to Pro?
hibit Sale and Explosion
of Fireworks.
Because of tho disorderly nature of
the Christmas celebration In the matter
of exploding; fireworks In public streets,
an ordinance will be Introduced in tho
City Council to prohibit tho sale ot
cannon crackers and bombs of all ltlnds.
But tho ordlnanco will not stop there.
It will prohibit tho tiring of these
crackers In the streots, and a heavy i
penalty will bo put down tor every J
violation. Already tho measure has |
been approved by citizens, by Council
men and by tho Police Department. I
AVhllo there Is no deslro to interfere j
with the harmless pranks of the young?
sters, tho nuisance has reached such a .
point lhat It 13 necessary to bring
about a change. Grown meji were
guilty like the boyB. They went nboul
town on Monday, flinging crackers in
all directions?right In the midst of
parties composed of women and chil?
dren?without, the least regard for pub?
lic safety. Several persons were In?
jured In this manner, "und several
lights resulted.
Dleifrnccfu! Srcars.
As tho law now stands, the police are
powerless to deal with the nultuncc.
In Broad Street on Monday, for instance,
the largest crackers sold in Richmond
were llghtod and thrown from win?
dows, frightening women and horses
and often making It dangerous for peo?
ple to walk about. Tho same disgrace?
ful conditions prevailed elsewhere.
There Is more drinking on Christmas
thnn on ordinary occasions, and this
simply added to the risk.
A member of the Common Council
said yesterday that he would ask City
Attorney Pollard to prepnrc nn ordl
nanco to be introduced at the January
meeting to prohibit the solo of fire?
works and tho explosion of fireworks
In the streets. A member of the JJoard
of Aldermen la at work on a .similar
ordinance, which is said to meet tho
hearty approval of the Pollen Board.
With the sentiment which hus been
aroused by the recent demonstrations,
it Is ulmost certain that the ordinaries
will bo adopted without opposition. It
will have a double effect, Inasmuch as
It will prevent the sule by nierchnnts
and tho street firing by men and boyp.
Under tho regulations now In vogue,
the "baby-waller" crackers are not sold
In Richmond, but cannon crackers on
the market are quite big enough.
Police Vrgrcd to Act.
"I have been asked by more than a
score of people within tho past two]
days if we could not stop these street I
celebrations," said a member of the |
Pollco noard yesterday, "and tho de
mnnd for a moro strict obsorvunOo of
tho day Is still growing. I believe that
a new law Is needed, und I was grati?
fied to-day to learn that an ordinance
would he Introduced In the City Council
covering tho two points?sale and cele?
bration. Unless that Is done, the evil
will continue to grow, and eventually
we will be forced to act after some?
body Is killed. Then the public will
make Us demands. The demands thus
far are sufficient. In my opinion. t?v Jus?
tify action. Christinas nowadays Is
turned into a disorderly exhibition, and
while we can't deal with the public,
conscience, we can certainly stop this
nuisance, and U will he done before
December 2!> next."

CHURCH ACCEPTS
HIS RESIGNATION
Mr. Warren Declines Year's
Furlough Offered by Second'
Baptist.
WILL SEEK NEW PASTOR
Resolutions Adopted by Congre?
gation Express Deep Regret
Over Retirement.
With expressions of sympathy and
regret, tho resignation of ltev. Louis
Bacon Warren, pastor of tho Second
Baptist Church, was accepted last
night by tho congregation at a busi?
ness session. Since Mr. Warren's un?
expected action, prominent members
of the church havo approached him
with compromise propositions, but ho
was firm in his purposo to relinquish
a chargo which he was unable to servo
wUth .his best efforts because of tho
severe oyo trouble with Which ho is
suffering. Ho declined to accept a
year's furlough as well as an otter of
an assistant to carry on his work,
while he took complete rest.
Immediately after tho opening of
tho meeting by Dr. George B. Steel,
presiding deacon. Sir. Warren address?
ed a few words to the congregation,
touching fcoltngly on the pleasure he|
had enjoyed during bis brief ministryI
In Richmond and tho sorrow with
which he gave it up. lie then retired.
Commended In Resolutions.
James D. Crump, chairman of the fi?
nance committee, offered tho following
resolutions, which were adopted by
the congregation:
"Wliereus, the beloved pastor of this
church, tho Rev. Louis Bacon War?
ren, has tendered his resignation be?
cause of physical Infirmities which
render n .complete rest Imperative; and
"Whereas, Mr. Warren has private?
ly stated his Inability to accept a fur?
lough such us this church would glad?
ly offer him.
"Resolved, that In regretfully ac?
cepting Mr. Warren's resignation, this
church wishes to record Its high ap?
preciation of his services as a minister
of the gospel and Its unfailing esteem
for him as a man.
"In the nil too brief ministry of
eleven months, Mr. Warren has en?
deared himself to us an Individuals
and as a church. Zealous in the work
of the Lord, fearless In the perform?
ance of his duty, a rounded scholar, a
cultured gentleman and a sincere
Christian, he has Inspired this church
with a.now destra for service and has
incited our members toward new
ideals of faith, as a preacher, as pas?
tor, as counsellor and as friend, he
lias won for himself a permanent place
In the ann;> Is of this church. In part?
ing with him, we. thank God for his
ministry with us. pray earnestly for
bis recovered health anil bid him God?
speed In his exalted career.
"Resolved, second, That tho clerk of
this church have a copy of these reso?
lutions properly engrossed and signed
by the moderator .Mid clerk and for?
warded to Mr. Wnrren."
(?'?rat Uloiv to Church.
In seconding tills expression of re?
gret on the part of the church, Dr.
Douglas tf. Freeman explained tho
pressure that hud been brought to bear
on Mr. Watren to make, him accept a
furlough or on assistant, the pastor's
determination not to accept such pro?
posals and his convictions that a
year's total rest was Imperative if
his eyesight is to be saved. Dr. Free?
man was followed by Lleutcnam-Gov
ernor Kllyson, who reiterated the
sorrow, the loss of the pastor caused
the church, and voiced the opinion
that It waa one of the worst blows
the church had ever received.
Immediately after a motion was of?
fered and adopted naming the follow?
ing as a committee to secure a new
pastor: William Ullyson, James D.
Crump, chairman flnancu committee;
Frank T. Crump, superintendent of the
Sunday school, C. R. Guy und Dr. W. IL
Street.
This same committee was later au?
thorized to act as pulpit supply com?
mittee until the services of a successor
to Mr. Warren have been engaged. A
motion was then proposed and unani?
mously adopted that although Mr.
Warren has served the church but
eleven months he be paid for his ser?
vices for a full year.
While Mr. Warren will be in the c'ty
until January 1. it Is not known
whether or not be will preach at the
Second Baptist Church next Sunday
morning. It Is believed ho will deliver
a farewell sermon to the congregation
It the condition of his health permits.
After the tlrst of tho year Mr. War?
ren will go to Macon, Ga., his old
home, where he will take a complete
rest tor a year. Ho came to the Second
Baptist on February l. 1911, from
OwCnffborp, Ky? to succeed the Rev.
W. I!. I. Smith. D. D., who bad been
the pastor for many years.
Although Mr. Warren Is threatened
with the total loss of his eyesight,
specialists: in N'ew York, whom he has
consulted .advise him that this calamity
may possibly 1> averted by such a
rest as he is undertaking.
Will be paid by this bank on January 1st. Since tlie year of our
organization we have prospered, and we are glad we can pay our
shareholders a fair dividend.
Our purpose is first to keep our assets in clean, convertible
condition; to give our customers the best of Security and Ser?
vice upon terms which will leave a reasonable profit for our
shareholders. DO NOT THESE BUSINESS PRINCIPLES AP?
PEAL TO YOU?
of Richmond, Virginia,
will adhere to these same principles, and we will appreciate all
or a part of your business during 1912.
