Of mere titles to bills and resolutions.

The old farce of pretending to read
th ? bills at length three times 111 each
house la still to some ex tout adhered
to. It has never l.ocn thoroughly don",
arid la rarely ?vcr nece.-sarv. It Is one
of the tlma-klllera which the Constitu?
tional Convention imposed upon the
legislature, .and whj^h, If literally
carried out. would make it a.s impotent
a legislative body ;u? any on earth. !
The requirement of .1 roll call 611 each I
motion to suspand the rules and on I
the 'ideation of passing each bill also!
consumes a vast amount of time, which
might be hotter employed. There nir;
hundreds of roll calls each session in

One of the features of last woftk's I
work In the House was the defeat of I
the woman's suffrage amendment by '.11
vote of S? to 1?, which put the matter I
at rest for th ? present session. The I
I amendment offered by Delegat" A'.d"n |
Bell, 10 allow a restricted suffrage to j
women upon tax mattors and the Ilk",1
did not prevail, though I: might have
been well I:' the suffragists had fought
for It ac an original proposition. A
similar proposition Is nor. 'before the
Legislature 61 Maryland. With an
opening wedge In the Constitution, the
full suffrage to women might not be
so difficult to obtain.
The companion me-asura introduced
hi the Senate by .Senator llarman may?
be reached this week. It did not get
a single vote In the committee, but It
will secure a few in thj rijjruue whon
,1 perfunctory vote Is taken on it.
Similar uu-aiures arc sure to be pre
seated to the Legislature until the
final victory is won?whenever that
may be.
Prohibition Slipping: Hackward.
Early In the w--k the prohibition
referendum wa? reported unfavorably
by the House Committee on Privileges ;
and Llectjone. It has never been an- I
nounced how the committee stood. o>ut j
It ts believed that the vote was close. 1
The House, however, is evidently In
favor of It by a substantial ma- j
jorlty. The effort to take It up out!
of its order on Friday lacked the |
necessary two-thirds support, the vote!
being 56 to 17. A similar rnotlon on j
.Saturday failed by a vote of 17 to 31.
The l.-reat of the patron to call it up |
every day until hit motion should suc?
ceed appeared to have had the op?
posite effect from that Intended, the
I opponents of the measure and some of
' its friends resenting what they deemed
an attempt at coercion. However, it
is not improbable, that the House will
I take up the bill one day this week and
set It aa a special and continuing
j order for a day next week. It is not
j regarded as likely that two-thirds of
the House will agree to Its coufctdera
i tlon very much short of the time that
; It would be reached on the calendar in
I due course.
After its passage by the House It will
j still have a rough foad to travel In

be much more strongly against it than

(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
Capo Churles, Va., February It.?
Tho village or Pamoria tho icenn oil
tho tragic death* of, the uged spinster
sister*, Misses Mary and Kathcrlno
Tunnel), Is greatly excited n3 a result
of the vigorous 'nvcstlgatlon of do
tootives working for cluco. Tho ne?
groes of tho vicinity have volunteered
to assist the authorities in the search
for the peputrator of the crime.
"We are convinced that a negro
killed the Misses Tunnoll." said Dr.
Docormls. of Accomac, to-night.
It is tho theory thut a negro, re?
duced to desperation through starva?
tion because of the severe weather
conditions that have prevailed and the
laok of the demand tor labor, made
tho attack. It Is believed that the
sisters, who were Inclined to hoard
their wealth, heard tho Intruder and,
endeavoring to repel him, were slain.
Tho almost total destruction of the
bodies has made the investigation a
dillicult one. and the authorities have
been forced to theorize.
Hundreds Ol tho morbidly curious
i wont to the farm during the day, and
the ashes of the ru'ns were searchedi
by them for souvenirs. Some sym
I puthet'c women fr'euds from Parks
ley placed flowers on the two graves,
which are located within a hundred
tuet of the crlmo.
The Rev. CJ. T. Clayton and Hov. Cr.
T. Clark, of tho Parksley M. E? and
Fastn-la Baptist churches, respective?
ly, mentioned the tragic death of the
women In the course of their sermon
this evening, and preyers wero offered
that the guilty might be speedily
brought to Justice.

Armed posses of enraged farmers
' with blood-hounds are scouring Aceo
' mas county for the assasslr and tho
entire peninsula 13 aroused over the
crime. County officials declared to?
night that three persons are under
surveillance, but because of tho wrath
of tho moti the authorities refuse tr>
j hint al the color or identity of the
] suspect-5.
! It Is admitted that the fury of th*
men may cause them to tako the law
Into tholr own hands If the guilty
parties are caught. Negroes are In a
panlc-'trieken mood. Tim sight of the
I bands of armed men and dogs, which
has so far fulled to turn up what is
regarded an it real scent, hnn made
them frantic. They are afraid of a
caso of mistaken Identity and they
are taking no chances. I'rom tuwiin

homo perpetrated tho double murder.
Only one motlvo, that of robbery, sug?

The sisters, who lived in a farm?
house With a stone's throw of l'as
lorla, ' owned tholr property and had
money In the Parksley Bank, while 't
had been reported that they had a
sum- In excess of fl,5Q? secluded about
their home. Tho sisters, it ho3 been
learned, did not leave a will, und thcil

John J. Tunnell. a brother, who re?
sides at Atlantic, aliout tit teen mile1,
from Pastorin, and the six children ot
William A. Tunnell. a dead brother.
Money Owed to Women.
A significant tact was unearthed
I tills afternoon by Dr. J. L.. Decorinis.
county coroner, tie learned from
u negro Hint a conversation between
two men hud been overheard, one of
the speakers asserting that SSOO owed
to the sisters us the final payment
upon a loan was to bo paid to them
last Tuesday, the day before the
I charred bodies were found among
' smoldering ruins. The money, how
i ever, was not paid at that time, be?
ing due next week. It may be, the
' physio'an theorizes, that the assassin
and his accomplices. If he was assisted
In the act, were chagrined by the
failure to find the. money and subject
ed the women to torture.
?It looks as though this axe might
be tho weapon." explained the doctor,
?'although 1 will not pin myself to
