GOOD ON TRAINS Senator West's Bill to Force This Argued Before Senate Committee. SOUTHERN RESISTS BITTERLY Desires Matter Loft to Corpo? ration Commission?O t Ii e r Roads I lave Adopted Plan. 8. II. I lard wick, passenger Ira file manager oi th? Southern Hallway, ana attorneys representing the ChcsapouKc and Ohio. .Noriollt pud VVealern anU Richmond, Frcdcrlcksburg and Potomac Hallways. Jol.'.ed yesterday before thi Senate Committee on Itoadx ami Inter ii'il Navigation in opposing (Senator| West's mileug. bill. According to the provisions of the proposed law, evjryj railroad In Virginia which docs no,] permit the conuuetors on us train to honor, tor transportation oi pasuea gors, He own ml lea go tickets and in? terchangeable mileage tickets Issued by It or by ottu-r roada will bo required to employ at each pnssengcr Statten I which Is located In a city or Incorpo-i lated town twr. ticket agent.*, one of whom is to take care exclusively ot the business of Issuing exchange] inllcaga tickets In exchange for cou? pons detached from the Inicrchange .ibie books mentioned. Xhe law would requln these two ?(rents to be at their posts at least thirty mlnuiis preceding the schedule time of departure of nil passenger trains from the depot. In opening the argument for thu bill. Senator West > iated frankly that he had no intention of placing an ur.duc burden on thj transportation companies by rcqu'r tng tho employment of unnecessary men. but that his measure was directed primarily against the practice of the roads In refualng to pull mtl:ago on wains. The pacsago of the bill, he thought, would compel the roads to ncccdo to tho popular demand for rnlle ago exchange on trains, rather than i.icur the addod ;xpcnisc of the extra man. i Menmire I? Punltlvr. '?The mujaurc which tho f-'enator proposes," said Mr. Hardwlck, opening Hie opposition argument, "is not reg Ulatory, but punitive. Instead of bo-1 In thi direction of helping to eolve the transportation problem, It proposes to punlhh the roads for a grievance which, as far a? I know, has never been reported to us." Speaking for the Southern Railway, he sulrl that his ro.ii had no In'.intlon of Imposing the slight; ?St hardship and that It was ready to remedy any abnormal condition within leason. I lie reminded the committee that the man who purchases a mileage book dobs s.o upon his own Initiative ana without solicitation from the compar.y, and ihercfors subscribes by 'hat act I'd all the conditions and restrictions which accompany the sale. Tho pres? et sytttem. he said, was adopted by the company after mature considers llori and was the b.-at they were able lo devise. To lift mileage on the I rains would vastly complicate the t ystern of accounting and would re.-ult iu a derangement of the service. Scoator Mosaic Skeptical. Senator Masslc asked why the i^uth <:n Hallway could not honor mileage books on trains If the Chesapeake and Ohio und Norfolk and Western Rail? ways both accepted certain kinds of mileage on their trains and seemed to be thriving. He was referred by Mr. Hardwlck to the representatives oi these roads, who stated In substance that tholr roads, under tho ngriomon-t with tho* Othur roads Issuing the Inter? changeable mileage books, ilo not ac? cept thlK class of mileage on trains, but that they honor only the'r own special mlleaga books, good for trans? portation only within the State. This fact, they argued, left the res? idents of Virginia with no grievance against tho Norfolk and Western and Chesapeake and Ohio, and thi law, It it is passed, should contain a provision excluding from Its operation those roads which accept OU Ihclr trains their own mileage between points in Vir? ginia. To tho question If his road would bo willing to grant a similar privilege within the borders of Virginia, Mr. Hardwlck replied that in Joining the group of roads Issuln;; the Inter-1 changeable mileage book, the Southern Hallway entered into an agreement noil to issue special mileage good on the trains of Its lines because such a pro CCduro would operate to swing to it a large per cont. of the Southbound passengers, which under the present arrangement I? divided among thu j oilier roads. When pressed to snyi that the other roads Imposed this con? dition upon tlio Southern, Mr. Hard? wlck evaded the Issio-. Appeal to Corporation t.'omnilnKlon. All of the railroad attorneys made the point that relief should be soughti in the state Corporation Commission.1 ihcy stood ready to Install any addl-i llonal facilities, they said. It the Cor? poration Commission should decide' that the public 1? suffering at anyj point in the State for lack <? f agentk or ..ny other cause. Senator West, concluding thc argu? ment for his measure, sold that It had not been shown \iy the representatives of tho roads that any material loss In dollars and cents would accrue to thoin if th ?>? adopted the plan of lifting mile? age on the trains, in ihe absence of such proof, Ii" thought, the bill should be made law. The committee took the bill up in executive session, but did not reacli a decision. The mutter will come up again Friday, at which time a report on the bill is promised. PHTSIOIAN5 EXAMINE PIEnCE.

Delegate Monouxe's gamlsb.ee bill, after being overwhelmingly passed by the House, and subsequently carried irv the Senate by the vote of 13 to 8, seems, atter all, destined not to be? come law at the present session. A uiltgent examination of the rule? anu Constitution, oonuuclcd by Senator rolii.;H. wno lead tne light against tue passage oi tne bill, bears out the pro vallUyS opinion tnat the Senate pro? cedure killed It, end that it can only become law now by being Introduce'i In Hie House as a new bill and pro ceoding ttiiougti the regular channels. The measure whs bitterly attacked In the eiei-'.atc Saturday when 11 came up for its third reading. After a Stormy debate of more than an hour, it was put to u vote and carried, 13 to S, many of the Senatori leaving the room to escape going on record for or against It. Senator Moncure Immedi? ately moved Its reconsideration, to place the vote, as he thought, beyond r< ' all, but Senator Wenaei.burg met the move by ottering a motion to pass by the motion to reconsider. Dolore the chair was able to put the ques tion, Senator Walker moved to ad? journ, nnd was sustained by the fio> ate. Required Tn o-l Iffha Vote. Rules of both the manual of the General Assembly and the State Con? stitution lay down the provision that no bill shall become law on Its final read bag unless "a majority of those voting, which shall Include at least two-nflhl of the members elected to each house, has been recorded in the affirmative." This rule makes it necessary that at least sixteen votes In the Senate bo recorded for a measure before It pass. Since only thirteen Senators voted for the bill In question, it is argued by the opponents of the measure that Saturday's vote did not count. Another rule Is quoted by the same side, which, it is said, will effectively prevent a reconsideration of the vote by which the bill was "queered." It provides that all motions to reconsider I he made "on the same day the voto I was talton. or yltliin the two days of inctu.il session of the Senate there? after." Tho two-day limit expirod yesterday. Opinion Is divided as to the status of the motion to recon *lder. which was made by Senator I Moncure Saturday, but which was I never put. 1 The bill In question proposes to de icrense the garnlshee exemption, from ? $00, as It is now, to $25. Roth Seha ! tor Felkes nnd Senator Wendcr.burp I opposed the measure on the floor of the Senate as one calculated to brlny much s tiffering upon . the laboring classes, and as a piece of legislation designed to hurt tho Democratic party. VICTORY WON BY ! - ', Teachers flocked to the Capitol yes terday afternoon to oppose the Rakes bill designed to abolish the retired teachers' pension fund. While tho bill was passed by temporarily, It iu gen? erally understood that the House Committee on Schools and Colleges was opposed to It, and that it is dead. Senator C. T. Bowers made the prin? cipal speech for the Rakes bill. He has a mmllnr measure in the Senate. Ho argued that there aro many de? fects in the law as it stands. One of these is that It requires no property qualification; that while the law places a $150 properly limit on Confederate women who are pensioned, It docs not ?.as to teacn'ers, and he had heard of ' woinon teachers who draw pensions and who ride in automobiles and take . occasional trips to Kuropo. Again, If teachers pay for some years and drop out. they get no re I turn. A man teaching for eighteen ! years, then dying, leaves nothing for i what he has paid In. Then, too, the I compulsory fenturo of payment was : disliked by Senator Bowers. Lastly, he believed the system would fail be I cause It would tost more money In j rears to come or else result in lower j Ing tho amounts paid. He was answered most vigorously ' Oy tho women present. One speaker \ said that any woman who would not i contribute 1 per cent, of her salary to help hor colleagues who have outlived their years of usefulness, was a menace to tho children under her caro. Tho financial loss of $3.000, which tho teachers ask tho Legislature to appro? priate, was caused, she said, by tho General Assembly Itself in Its re? quirements. She pointed cut many States which have tho compulsory feature. Members of 'the committee asked questions to Indicate 'tho Injustice of abandoning the proposition now, after teachera have paid In money for four years. Albert H. Bill, assistant Superinten? dent of tho Richmond schools, asked for the defeat of tho bill on tho ground that the pension system enables tho employment of young toachors to take tho places of those too- far advanced In years to glvo offccUvo aervlcel NAVY WIRELESS PLAN FOR LOCATING SHIPS System Practically Covern I'o.ition, of Naval Vraaeln on nith Seo?. Washington. Fo> i try C.?The United States navy has about completod a sys? tem of wirolesB telegraphy which Will 1 practically cover tho positions of Its I ahlpa on the high seas everywhere and with the principal foreign countries of the civilized world. The application of wireless telegraphy to tho deter? mination of tho longitude ef 'a ship ut sea, in the opinion of scientists. Is de? stined to bo paesad as one of tho few ! great and ueoful discoveries of the age. The time signals of tho Paris ob? servatory aro distributed by wireless telegraphy. The atandird clocks are kept in the "Catacomba*' ninety feet underground. whero tharo is prac I tlcally constant temperature of 11.8 I centigrade, the variations in several i years being under .02. The rldereal and I polar clocks can be comparer at a dis? tance, their beats being audible by microphones. Wireless telegraphy was first used for distributing time signals May 20, I lSlfi. It Is probably only R question of time before those or similar signals I will be available to ahlpg in any part I of the world, which would completely solve the problem of longitude at 6ca with an accuracy formerly undreamed of. This and the gyro-compass are two revolutionary improvements in naviga? tion (luring the last fifteen months. Th? mean solar clock ts put rlg^it at Greenwich by an electro-magnet that can either aid or oppose the action of gravity on the pendulum, warning signals being sent by hand in a pre? arranged manner to give notice of the actual signals, which are sent auto? matically by the clock and go through a relay of tho Eiffel Tower, whence they proceed by wireless telegraphy. A not* In the observatory recently stated that a clockrnaster at Canter? bury regulates his clocks by Paris signals, which were recently changed to accord with Greenwich time. Ger? many has also a system of signals dispatched from Norddolch, and Rio Janeiro Is about to follow suit The French propose to use tho mithod for the accurate determination of the dif? ference In longitude between rarls, Blzerta, Tunis and Athens. Why Actresses Never Grow Old (Theatrical World.) Nothing concerning the profession seems more puzzling to the dear old pub : lie than the perpetual youth of our femi ' nine members.

Of course allowance is I made for make-up, but when they sec us I off the stage at dose range, they need \ another explanation. How strange women generally haven't learned the secret of keeping the face young!

We know how this grad? ually, imperceptibly absorbs old cuticle, keeping the complexion new and fresh, i free from fine lines, sallowness or over redness. We know, too, that this mer? colized wax is the reason actresses don't I wear moth patches, liver spots, pimples I and the like.

"the ot&t jjjrwn^P^wK Bill to Prevent Adulteration Ar? gued With Spirit Before Committee. Paint manufacturers from .ill over tho country and dealers from all parts of this State were gathered yesterday afternoon to oppose the Adams bill re? quiring unalysls of paints, Unseed oil and turpentine. Advocates of the bill were equally active, with the result that the debate proved, one of tho llv est of the session. Berkley D. Auatns, putrnn of the bill. wuh aided by Deputy Stute Dairy and Food Commissioner D, L* i'urvull and representatives of the puirteru. Mr, Adams stood to his guns in .spue of the avalanche of opposition hurled at his head. "Over the heads of fraudulent paint; ' manufacturers hangs the name warn-; ing given to BolShamar, me King of; old?'Mens, Mciie Tokoi Upharsln; thyi kingdom Is divided; thou art weighed' In tlio baluncc and found wanting.'"! Such was tho conclusion ul the aduressl of John Dewar. of Pittsburgh, chair? man of the legislative commuteo of tho International Association of Mas tor Painters and Decoratorp. In sup? port of the bill. K. U Peters, presi? dent of the Master Painters of Vlr I ginla. was also an advocate of Its paasagc.

All packages would be marked,' and thoso not measuring up to the standards fixed In the bill would be ? id and the manufacturer or dealer | fined. I J. I. Jenkins, a paint dealer of Nor-; I folk, led tho opposition. Introducing many speakers. Ho said that the small? er Virginia merchants would suffer, as people would buy from mall order houses. An analysis would give no In? dex to elllclency of paint, sold tho op-( ponents, and there Is so much dis? agreement as to what Is adulteration that It would he of no use. Those who favored the bill said no honest manufacturer would be hurt, and that In time to come all such would favor the proposition. I BILLS REGARDED AS REVOLUTIONARY Lawyers Say Measures Would Destroy Doctrine of Con? tributory Negligence. With an earnestness not usually shown by attorneys appearing before legislative committees, arguments wore made yesterday before the House Committee for Courts of Justice agalmst four bills deslgnod, so It Is sold, to materially change the prac? tice of the courts In all ages. Tho committee partially hoard the matter In the morning concluded ijublic de? bate In the afternoon and will take tho bills up In executive, session this morning at 9:30. It was said that the object of the legislation In the four bills would re suit in wiping out the doctrluo of contributory negligence. One in par? ticular was the principal object of at? tack, and Is as follows: "A bill prohibiting contributory negilgonce to be made a defense in action for personal Injury. "He It enacted by tho General As? sembly of Virginia, That In an action i for personnl Injury, whether the same j result In dcatli or not, if the ncgli i genee of tho defendant be shown, con? tributory nogllgcncc by the plaintiff I may bo shown only Ln> mitigation of I damages." nn? Wide Effect. I A. B. Guigon protested most vigor? ously. Ho sold the bill goes further I than any over passed by any State in j the Union or by any country In the civilized world using the common, law I practice. It was manifestly, he said, a gross injustice. It would deprive j the driver of a motor cor or the driver ? of a wagon who Injures another from ? a hearing in the courts. Were a farmer, continued Mr. Gui ! gon, driving to town, foil asleep In, his wagon and run over a man who had deliberately lain down to sloop on the road, he would bo compelled to I pay damages, the contributory ncgll ! gence being used only to reduce the [ amount. ; Complimenting juries, he said thoy ; are disposed to bo sympathetic with thoso who have been injured, and this blil would tie tho h. nds of courts and leave every defendant at tho mercy of a sympathetic Jury. It would prac? tically eliminate instructions to juries, and would require damages in evory caso whore there was negilgonce on tho part of the defendant, oven if tho accident would not nnd could not havo occurred without the act of tno plain ,tnff. Warming up to hin subject, Mr. Guigon said 'hat his library of law books, compl.d In tho course of ills practice for a large public service cor? poration, would not. If this bill passes, lie worth the money it would cost to burn It up. Tho prlnclplo Involved, ho contended, uproots every dootrlno of Ihe t.ourfj end every prlncl; le> of law relative to damages, and overturns cverp phaBO of pleading and practice on thlB subject. Murray M. McGuiro was no less em? phatic. Ho pointed out that tho hills require employers to Inauro their em? ployes. Corporations, ho, said, cannot keep their men from getting hurt If employes Insist upon putting them? selves In position to be injurod. Ho also thought tho doctrine revolution? ary. ' ' -. T"ao four bills, wh'oh wore Intro? duced by Hugh A. Whlto. wero not, ho said preporod by him. but. by eminent Richmond attorneys.

Until they have taken some action It Is not likely that ! funeral arrangements will be made. It Is the accepted belief uuiong the members of the order that Ross will lie chosen as a successor to Grlflln, who was only recently made Its head; i and who fought an uphill bntllo to place It on Ita feet, which wns neces I tdlated by the wrecking of tho True !

He was re? turning from a Western trip In the In? terest of tho organization at the time ! he received the Injuries which resulted in his dcatb. His tragic end has been a doclded shock to the colored population of Richmond. He was highly regarded I and looked upon as one of the leaders j of his race, nnd his denth Is regarded ; as a calamity.
