In regard to the matter to-day.
It has been reported for weeks that

The statements In Judge Watktns's
letter, which contain information on
the subject, are us follows:
"To the Editor of The Tltnes-Dtspaten:
"Dear Sir. ? I have been connected
with this Institution for twenty-seven
years, and bclluvo I know the men
who are connected with its manage?
ment, and knowln - them as 1 <io, T
say without hesitation that the sinte?
rn? nt concerning the activity of Mr.
B. M. Cox, In support of Sir Turnbull.'
Is without foundation, In fact. I am'
Informed that Mr. Cox Is In sympathy
11!i Mr. Tumi, il!. Which, In my OPlh-j
Ion. Is natural, inasmuch as Mr. Turn- j
b 111 has 1.11 the president of the J
board for many years, and Mr. Cox
has during nil that time been its faith- j
ful and oniolcnt steward and th. !: re-j
Irtlonshlp has been most pleasant and
agreeable.
"Of my own knowledge. Mr. Cox
has not been active In tVUs political
controversy, or any other political
controversy, either national, State or
county, since his connection with this
school, which has been for more than
seventeen years, and has voted only
onci during that time fbl a presiden?
tial candidate, nnd that candidate was
at that time voted for by many who
are now prominent In the Democratic
party.
"The lnaecurary of another state?

without the semblance of truth No

Richmond Line Must Pay Its
Viaduct Engineer $2,000
and Costs.
By virtue of the act of the Supreme
Court yesterday In refusing a writ of
error to the Citizens Rapid Transit
Company, now the Richmond and Hen
rico Hallway Company, mat concern
must pay to \V, r Marshall the aum
of j2,uou. together with sundry costs
and Interest. The money was earned
by Marshall as an engineer In the
construction of the company's viaduct.
The l-iw and Equity Court ol this city
gave Marshall Judgment, which must
now be puld.
In the early days of the Clt'.Z'.ns'
Rapid Transit Company, when :t was
trying- to get money to carry out Its
plans. John C Robertson, a promoter,
employed Marshall as an engineer.
This was on May 25. 1301. The hoard
of directors ratified the agreement
with Mai shall at a meeting held on
September 10 of the same year, at u
price of 1200 per month, subject to
the consummation of a deal to finance
the proposition. At that time a con?
tract had. been made, but It faj'.o 1 to
secure the money.
Pleaded Limitation.
Marshall worked until April t. 190?,
when his services were dispensed with,
He did not bring ."lit until August,
1903. *nd It was plonde 1 that the
statue of limitations applied in fur?
ther defense, the company pointed to
the fact that the plan for financing
Its affairs had fallen through, and that
at iast. almost In despair after the
franchise had been renewed three
times, aome of the stocknolders or?
ganized the Richmond and Henrl-o
Railway Company. transferring- its
franchises and privileges to the new
concern In return for one-twentieth
of Its profits.
Marshal; charged that this transfer
was '.one by \V r. Jer.ltlr.s, John <"V
Ilagan. W. S Forbes and 8. I. Kellcy.
owning nearly r.Jl the stock In the Cit?
izens Rapid TritSisli Company, for tin
purpose of hindering, doinvinir end
defrauding Its creditors Rather in?
cidentally. Marshall claimed that tho
transfer <->f the franchise by the City
Council was Illegal.
