WARSHIP MENACE MAY BRING PEACE (Contlnuol from First Fase) no.,it. .None of the American blue? jackets was allowed ashore.

Presidential Secretary Ramirez, on behalf of the President, made a state? ment In part as follow?: "According to the news published in the local press, the arrival of two: American warships to-day Is due to! alarming reports sent to Washington, I which Is lamentable. The recent I events in Havana lack importance, the ' polics having promptly quelled the dis-I order. j It is lamentable, because the Cuban! people have a warm affection for the"] l ulled States and are surprised und i hurt that warships are sent here for' the protection of interests which nonci has attacked or will attack." Hardly a visible ripple of popular In-] tcrcst attended the arrival this after? noon of the United States armored cruiser Washington, the flagship of j Admiral Osterlmus and the battleship I Rhode Island, freighted, as both uro supposed to be. with Weighty influ ences on Cuba's fate.

PELL AND PALMER ABSENT Ancient Rivals W ithdraw at Last Moment?Star Matches On To-Day. A bright day, bracing atmosphere and an enthusiasts gallol'y combined to make the opening Ouy of lite an? nual old Dominion T< nnla Tournament, on the Country Club courts, u great suoceas. No less tu.-.n fifty-two en tri.-s In tho men's singles Insured a Held of clever players ana h'"'sk tennis, and in this expectation the hundreds whe gathered to Bee the sport were not disappointed. I'erfect management made possible tho pi lying of twenty .-. von matches yesterday afternoon, ami although tho play continued until a few minutes to fc /clock, the gallery lingered to the la ft. The withdrawal <?:' tho two premier racket wlelders, Theodore Roosevelt Fell, present Hermitage cup holder,] and Richard Palmer, two-time nuldur | of this cup, at the lust moment was a I k.-i n disappointment lo the followers of the game In Rlchmon I. Their absence will tend to leave the winner of the tournament in doubt until the lost round. Pell, one of tho bust on the American court, telegraphed his with? drawal when he was named to repre? sent the United Statit on the Olympic tennis team, and Palmer's telegram, tilling: of the Ulncs: .f his wife, camo only yesterday. The dash of these two champions last year In the cnal lenge round of the tournament, when Pell succeded, after five grueling sets, in wresting the tit!, from Palmer, Is still talked of by local players, and u repetition of this exl Ibltion was con? fidently expected this season. I'nliurr Loses Opportunity. If Palmer hud been able to appear In the tournament he would ha\e been a sure winner, providing, of course, that Pell failed to show up. In that case Palmer would have remained the permanent owner <.f the Hermitage cup, having already two logs In this coveted trophy, h. was keenly disap? pointed not to be able to olalm his lau? rels this year, with such a golueu op? portunity before him. There were no unexpected reversals of form yesterday, all of the cracks coming through unscurred, and but few i matches of thrilling interest. To-days round, however, will bring together some of tho best talent in the toiiriia iii. nt. and tho gallrry will be rewarded by brilliant tennis.

"Tills shows ?hat the average gen? eral rat" charged in Richmond is neur ly 20 per cent, less than the lowest in this list.

I It Is not what is regarded us un ade? quate return. ? llovr it Worked Elsewhere. "I was once with the East Rl vor Gas Company, of 1-ong Island, which was turned over to i.ie Consolidated | ?!us Company with increased capital.! .Some of the streets we tore up had! eleven ?r twelve pipeM where onoj would have been sufficient. There has, come a consol'dat'on; there is all) that dead capital. The consolidated! company is protected in its rates by, the courts in earning n fair return! on the total of capital fairly Invested by the various co:nr?.-ting corrtipa.nlvs. 'J hero is now over fifty miles of use? less gas pipe in the streets of Balti? more. There were three plants where one would do the work, nnd the Pub-! lie Service Commission of Maryland allows the consolidated company to charge rales to earn a fair return on the entire investment. So the com? munity is paying the bill. "The electric situation in Baltimore is similar. It has been the experience of every large city first in gas anil then in electricity, naltlmore is now saddled with 84,000,000 bonds for use Jess duplicating plants, with Wires CriissCFOSSlnib .ac.h other, and rho com? pany is protected In its charges and earnings in earning only a fair ro turn on these bonds. As usual the public is the goat. "In St. Louis ft was the same thln--r. Capital has been piled up in four or five plants. They have consolidated, increased capital, and the company is now allowed In fixing its rates to lam a fair return on miles of useless wire. cheaper to Reimburse Them. "What would happen here? There, would he a tight, a lot of Useless capi? tal invested, the streets torn up, a consolidation and the public pay In? creased rates to pay int. rest on double investment. No one gains. The city would save a great denl more money by reimbursing the applicants for what they have already spent. 'lite "nuisnnec value" of a rompet inir franchise has become a well re cognized term in discussing competi? tion. It is an economic crime to re- | open ? e doors if competition w'th the mistaken notion that the coni munity will benefit." Mr. Anderson followed in a clear argument, reviewing briefly points outlined before the subcommittee when the franchise was being framed. He urged tho committee not to grant a franchise out of sympathy for those who bod built an unprofitable railway line parallelling within a block ex Ist'ng lines and developing no new territory. When the old traction company came into the field, he showed, the old company was not tendering a proper sevico to the com? munity, As to regulation, he believed such power now lay witlt the .Corporation Commission; it it did not ? he ould gladly support a bill to place It there. In any c:M> the ordi? nance itself specified that the Cotin ; ell reserves the right to "impose mich : other regulations us It may from ! time lo time deem proper." wwhlch tie contended was Itself ample regula? tion. FreiVrlcksburir Franchise. Mr. Anderson also explnned the sit? uation in Foderlckshurn to which ref J erence had been -made In a "service talk,'' slntlnir thai Mr. Onuld is now erecting a concrete power house there holding the only franchise in exis? tence, the old plant, once sold under , foreeinaiu-s. _t?n^flKO,, hnyip? .AUDIlad since for a franchise and been \ fused. Takintr uo a discussion r,f iho ordi? nance, Mr. Anderson said that If the amendment proposed by Mr. Kclley cvn adopted. and It er.' left to the Conttnlttee i>n Streets to requln the comoanv to extend Its linos from time to time, each case could be lak < n into court on Injunction proceed In IS, which would be upheld If It . ould he shown that the city Was seeking to compel the company to o\ P< nd money for an unprofitable ven? ture. Mr. Meredith closed the argument for the Richmond and llcnrlco Com? pany, holding thnt the present com-i pany is an uncontrolod monopoly, wllhi r.c power to regulate its rates or ser? vice save by competition. Mr. Milloi would naturally be af? fected by bis associations with mono? polies, contended Mr. Meredith. "I nm In favor of the Initiative und referendum," he asserted. "There Ist I r.o other way to get laws passed In ni reasonable jtlme. I have seen the I legislature so much cohtrolcd by bor-1 poratlon lobbies that the. simplest angca ?i th<- nvthod of pleading in damagi! miIih were fought by men hurried here frotn Noifolk nnd lloa nolte and other cities.

Harvey Wilson appeared for the Richmond stockholders in the Virginia Railway and Power Company, replying to remarks by Rev. George w. Mr Daniel, I?. I?, at the East End Clllscns Association.

The Virginia Railway nnd Power Company has $4.250,000 <?f Its stock held in Richmond by 257 stockholders, and In their behalf lie asked the committee i . t to jeopardize their Investment v Ithout Just cause.

C C NATURE'S e PERFECT TONIC Sometbing more than an ordinary tonic is required to restore health to a weakoned, run-down system; the niodicine must possess blood-purifyiug properties as well, because the weakness and impurity of the circulation is responsible for the poor physical condition. The blood does not contain the necessary quantity of rich, red corpuscles, and Is therefore a weak, tvutery stream which cannot afford su?icient nourishment to sustain tho System in ordinary health. A poorly nourished body cannot resist disease, und this explains why so many persons are attacked by a speU of .sickness when the use of a good tonic would hnvo prevented the troubh?. In S. S. S. will be found both blood-cleansing and tonic qualities combined. It builds up weak constitutions by removing all impurities and germs from the blood, thus supplying a certain menus for rosloring strength and invigorating the system. Tho healthful, vogetable ingredients of which B. S. S. is composed make it splendidly fitted to tho needs of those systems which are delicate from any cause. It is Nature's Perfoct Tonic, free from all harmful minerals, a safe ana pleasant acting modicino for persons of every age. S. S. S. rids the body of that tired, worn-out feeling so common at this season, improves the appetite and digestion, tones up the stomach, acts with pleasing effects c > the nervous system, and roinvigorates everv portion of the body.
