Thinks Well of Loudgraf.
".Speaking of that fellow Landgraf, I
want 10 say that he Is one ol the
siiuaresi, gameal, cleanest and most
hustling man 1 h-v-- ever known in '
baseball. He never knows when he 's
licKi.d, Will flglit .'or a game of ball
lrom the tlrsi li.n:ns to the last, and
is a great juuge- or ball players. Hu
might not give Richmond a pennant ,
winner, but he will be so close to tno !
top that the fans will know he is in
the race.
"I have absolutely no objection to |
tho published glories about the league. )
because 1 know the calibre of men 1
air, dealing with. In each of the clues 1
the francnlse Is controlled by sub
Btanilal business men, not phllanthiop
Ists. They know what tuey are go?
ing against and they believe they have
a winning proposition. Every where,
on all sides, we aie receiving from the
fan?the fellow Who pays?assurances
that we will be welcome. Though I
have said it a hundred limes 1 want
to repeat that we are noi going to
encroach on anybody's preserves. We
are simply going tu offer baseball for
the public. If the public likes our
wares the public will buy. If the pub?
lic does not like what we offer then
the public will not buy. Wo aro go?
ing to respect everybody's contract,
und wo win demand thai our contracts
be protected and respected.
"If It Is a crtniif for business men
to etiler Into a legitimate business,

the hope and belief that tho venture

do not, however, believe that the pub?

not concedo that any body of men has
a God-given right to say to any othei

Br?t. We believe that such a prin?
ciple la against true democracy and
against that spirit of competition
which is tile very warp and woof of
our commercial Inslltul'ons. It is
wrong economically; it is wrong
morally. That is the belief of tho
I men who compos,, the United Stales
"We arc willing to lot the public
be the final Judge. The only thing in
which wc can be wrong is our faith in
the fair-m'ndedness of the public. We
might be wrong In our business Judg?
ment, but most of us have made suc?
cesses in our other businesses, and we
are willing to take u chnnee. Finally,
we are going to give big league base?
ball at moderate prices, and this, wo
think, will fill a longfelt want and n
public demand. 1 want to thank all
of the people ot Richmond for the
kindness they have shown our organi?

dering Hartwell Anderson, a young
married man, who was shot In .Mrs.
[ Barnes's bedroom at her home. 1114
I.Twenly-flrst Street. Monday afternoon.
I Two hours after the arrest, a coroner's
jury was cmpannclled. and after hear?
ing tho evidence of the attending phy?
sicians and Chief of Police Mitchell
and Detective Pearson, returned a ver?
dict to the effect that Anderson came
to his death from a pistol shot wound,
und that the Jury believed the pistol
was In the hands of Mrs. Barnes.
Anderson wus shot near the. right
temple, the ball entering the head
und splitting In two, ono-half going
lnt6 his brain, und the other half Im?
bedding in his skull. He never re?
gained consciousness, and died at mid
li ght lust night.
It wus not until thirty-six hours
after the shooting that the police be?
gan an investigation, tho Barnes wo?
man telling thein ut tho stnrt that An?
derson nad come to her house drunk,
borrowed a pistol and gone to the bed?

to the story..

College events will not make up the
entire program. There will be relay
races for clubs and schools, besides
scholastic races from the RO-yard up
to the quarter-mile. School and club
athletes are eligible to compete In the
open handicap events. Manager Kings

One of tho most exciting events on
the card will undoubtedly result 'n
the 50-yard invitation hurdles. Ktghl

classic. They are Idler, the greatest

An effort to get a reconsideration
of tho vinegar bill, which was de?

point of ordor. Although it was stated
that this measure was backed by what
Is known as the ''cidor lobby." It was
heartily IndorBCd by Deputy State Food
Commissioner B. B. Purcell. The analy?
sis was made by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley,
tho pure rood expert. Tho patrons
of tho measure were Messrs. Tcmplc

were oxcluded from tho lloor of thu

people who have been constant visitors,

kept from the doors and repaired to

constant appeals from thoso Interest?
