Spooking in words tr?at compelled attention, /,. V.. Morris, member of tho committee widen drafted Ute plans for Uichtnond's new government, laut night urged upon the young men of lha Richmond Chapter, American Institute of Banking, tlic necessity of quality ing 10 vote, and then voting Intelli? gently for hone.t, capable und rei fe acntative men foi the new Adminis? trative Uourd. With the wrong uieu elected to the board, Mr. Morris skid, Uiahmond would have the worst gov? ernment poHbinit, while if tho right in en iuii ano arc elected, toe city will t.e working utittcr the bist possible conditions. Discussing the qti'.-atlon of getting tin. be--i men to announce their can? didacy. Mr. Morris emphatically stated that he would oppose any attempt to have the Chamber of Commerce, the Business MenClub or kindred or? ganizations nominate a ticket tor thai board; giving us it is objection, hie i>.. liei iu.it these bod:,..- should hot step j aside from their primary aim.- to be- ' com,.' political organizations, ii, stood sponsor for tiiu ussei'tiuii that the city, employes c.iuld, with their U.ouO Ulli Ilated vote.-, nominate, support and elect an Administrative Board winch: would bo completely dominated by the employes?that is, unless more. than 10,000 61 the .11,Out! eligible 1 voters ot Itlchniund qualify for the I Ncvcmbci election. Mr. Morris's explanation of the Changes tvorkod in the city govern? ment held the attention of the insti? tute unwaveringly, and h uumbei of Questions were asked him when lie j concluded his Illuminating address, w rtius Syatciu Heretofore. In the past, said Mr. Morris, the .Cuy Council had been violuUng the Constitution of Virginia; In that u uas both legislative and executive, the Council enacting law;- and Its com? mittees executing them. Under the plan ot government just adopted, the' Council will legislate and the Ad- ; minlstrative Hoard will have, lull ' charge of the executive end. As a | safeguard against the possible misuse of influence certain to bo wielded. Mr. .Morris explained the clause winch provides that whenever any member ot the board shall enter, or allow Iiis name to be entered, as a candidate tor uny oilier public ollice. he must Im? mediately resign. If his resignation is not forthcoming within ten days, the board must declare hi:- position vacunt. This puts the ollice of ad? ministrator beyond possibility of vote swinging by political patronage. Immediately after Mr. Morris's up peal tor tho support of every citizen of Richmond over the age of tv.et iy one, Charles 1J. Watford, .lr.. secretury ol the Business Men's Club, explained to the institute exactly the process ?t registration. For a matter of curiosity, all members of the institute who were rj alilled voters were asked to stand. Mere than half of them rose. Tho technical subject of the insti? tute meeting was represented by the address of C. C. Bnrksdale, Stale Bank I Examiner, who spolte on "Necessary i Bank Legislation." After outlining f fully the amendments to the Virginia banking laws which his department has asked of the present Legislature, Mr. -uirksdslc centred his plea on ,?? special}- desired reforms. First, a iep-1 of the .section that requires tho f". .te Corporation Commission to serve reasonable notice In advance ?'?:'. the board of directors of n bank which the examiner has found to be In? solvent? Under the present law. said Mr. Bnrksdale, the commission 's powerless to warn prospective de? positors, for several days at bast, thai the bank In which they are about to deposit is insolvent. Second, a statute requiring Mate banks to keep on hand a certain re? serve. Third, Uglslal'on to restrict loans to one party to 25 per cent, of the capital stock of the bunk. >cerrlnr> Nuttel to Speak.

ENDURANCE RUN TO BE THROUGH RICHMOND bour Cities keluding Washington, Baltimore and Norfolk Will Leite in Run?Tenthtive Fian is to Start June 6-- Distal.cj of 75U Miles, Washington. D. C, February 27-? Rudolph Jose and Gardner urine, cap-| tain and lieutenant, respectively, of the Automobile Club ot Washington, are; busily engaged In formulating plans for the proposed reliability tour Ic bi run under Hie joint auspices of llif automobile clubs o? Washington, Bal? timore, Richmond and Norfolk. June ? Is llie tentative dato selected for the start, and the plan Is to havi tach club have Its own bweepstakei . end . lass prizes, in addition to Whlcii ' there will be a costly trophy Known as the Chesapeake trophy. This will I be contested for annually by the clubs of the four cities, but the llrat yeai | Its possession will rest with the Auto- | mobile Club of Washington, as the idea originated In this city. There will be one corps of ulllciuls for the tour, and from the four cities the following officials will be selected: .Starter, chief observer, chief checker, nnd pilot. These four will select the referee, and the live officials will compose thu tech? nical committee. It Is likely a referee from sonic other than the four In? terested Ik the tour will be selected. 1 According to calculations made by Captain Jos.-, the propose.! route it Shout TMi miles long and skirts Chesa? peake Bay. For this reason tho ofll clal title of ihn tour will be the Chesa? peake endurance run. Starling In Washington, the first day's run will be to Wilmington. Del., with a noon stop at Baltimore. The distance is 132 miles. The second day's run Is from Wilmington to Sttllsburyi a dis? tance of ids miles, with a noon con? trol at Dover, the capital of Delaware, from Salisbury to Norfolk, which will be the third .lay's run, is 104 mlies, and there w'l; r,e a stop for gasolene at Keller. Va. This day's run in cludea a trip on the ferry from Cap-. Charles to Norfolk. The next day be? ing Sunday, the tourists will atop over in Norfolk, while on Monday they will resume the tour, which will take them to Richmond, a distance of 121 miles Richmond to 8tauntoh, a dts tance of 122 miles, will make up the next day's running, with :i lunch slop at Louisa. The last day's run 1- tin longest In the series, being from Staunt?n to Washington vln Winches tor and Harper's Ferry. As this streich is macadam throughout und great speed can be made, there is little ques? tion but what the tourists will be able to finish in Washington on schedule, time. It is highly probable that the Rich? mond Automobile Club will lend Its influence toward making the proposed Chesapeake endurance run a success. A letter outlining the plans for the run has been received by B. C. Pelouze, vice-president of the club. A meeting will be held Monday night at the club rooms, when the meet will be dis? cussed in detail and a committee on arrangements and co-operation with the other cities appointed. It Is be? lieved that the run will present a much needed opportunity to preach the gospel of goo<| roads, and especial? ly in connection with the Virginia Di? vision of the Mlaml-to-Quebcc High way Association. It Is believed that an effort will he made to have the run conic down the Potomac. River by way of rrederlcksburg to Richmond. At a recent meeting of the local club the following new members were elected; Ernest M. Gnrrclt, Charles P.ueger. E. W. Evans. J. E. Eubank, W. B. Bradley and Dr. J. A. Keck.

There win b.- a special mat Inei to-morrow at 2:30 p. m. SENATE (Continued From Third Pago.) other measures huvlng for their ob? ject national aid t>? State toads us may t.e Introduced, The resolution was in? troduced In the House by Delegate Bell, of Culpeper, who, as a member of the Road Congrens-, which met in Richmond last autumn, presented a similar resolution to that body. The primary hill was called prompt? ly at 1 o'clock and discussion began on the committee amendments. The first amendment made no chungo in the original bill, providing only for minor alterations In phraseology In the Interest of clearness, and was adopted without opposition. On the next amendment, which leaves it i" the State committees of the re? spective- parties to determine the time of holding primaries, a number of .Senators Joined In attack. Senator Walker held that the proposed amend? ment would brine back to Ufo Ihr very evil which the hill tried to ex? terminate?the shifting of primary dales In the Interest of favored candi? dates and special cliques. The un umended section provides, for a fixed day upon which hoth parties shall hoi,; their primary elections throughout tfcc State. Such a provision, he thought wiis essential to a thorough-goir.g primary law. Senator Feathorston pointed out th::t under t''e amendment it would be pos? sible for the party committees to order four separate elections In one year, and all of them at the expense of the State. Objections along the tame line were offered by Senator West, who regarded the principle of a single nxed day for all primary elec? tions as the most Important feature oi constructive primary law. Sfenatoi Gravalt condemned the amendment on similar grounds. The. object of the amendment, said Senator Hurt, was to keep within each party the conti ol of the puny ma? chinery. Despite ull that may be suld, ho argued, our government Is u party government, and in order to preserve It It Is necessary to keep the rcspec tlvo parties In control of their organi? zations. The unnmended bill, he ob? jected, would mean in effect that the Slate would have two elections each year Instead of one. The object of the primary, he contended, was ehlelly to select candidates, not to elect them, and the party should be left sole judge us to tb? means to bo used In such selection. Senator Bison spoke briefly for the amendment, it will permit each party to adjust Ihe date of primary elec? tions to meet the special exigencies und needs of each county or district, und In this manner make possible greater flexibility. The amendment was opposed by Sen? ator Saundors, who thought that the interest of the party demanded si fixed primary. Such an arrangement, he said, would free the Democratic party from nil charges of favoritism and jugglery, and assuro to every can? didate a froo Held and no favors. An aye and no vote was called, and the amendment was adopted by the vote of 20 to 16. The Senatorr, voted as follows: Ayes?Blanks, Drewry, Early, Echols, Kolkes.
