The crime of which Ixioney was con?
victed was one of such atro'-'.ty as tol
excite the strongest feelings against [
him In Craig County. Taik of lynch?
ing was frequent, and. In fact. Looney's I
petition for appeal gives prejudice I
against him as tue principal reason
for asking a new trial. He saps
that the public mind was inflamed, and
adds that the entire bar of the county
prosecuted him.
Other reasons given in the petition j
ere that he was denied a Jury from j
another county, that ha was denied)
a continuance, although suffering from j
a wound, and that the venire was lm- j
properly drawn. j
Martin had two warrants for the j
?rrest of I?oney, who seems to have i
bad an unenviable reputation. L.oon? y j
was told of It, and replied to sev-1

Martin tried to arrest him be would '
blow the officer's brains out. He shot <
Martin through the brain, fulfilling his ,
threat. !
The defense was that Martin ap- !
proached hirn in the dark, produced a
pistol and began firing, wounding him.
and that Looney shot in self-defense.
This taie was not believed, especially
Since Looney told a physician who at
t.-nd'-d him that his own wound was

I Or. Kyland Knight Is chairman, wasj
' read. The committee urges on the:
Churches the Importance of giving im-j
mediate attention to the raising of
necessary funds for the proposed Eirro
pean Baptist Seminary. The conditions'
in Europe make the time seem rtpej
for a great Protestant forward move?
ment, t'lrginla has been asked to j
raise only f?,500.' of this amount ovet;
$3,000 being subscribed.
Dr. W< C James spoke earnestly to
the report, and urged th. need of more
money for this seminary at once. The
conditions In Kastern and Southeastern
Europe he declared to be ripe fot
evangelisation, and what the Baptist
Seminary of Louisville has done for
Southern Baptists generally, and Rich?
mond College, for Virginia this semin?
ary at St. Petersburg would do for
Eastein and Southeastern Europe. The
report was adopted.
The Historical Soelet>. ]
Dr. C. H. Kyland presented the re?
port of the Virginia Historical Society.
The society was organized in 1878, Isj
an incorporated society, and Its object
Is to procure and preserve Baptist bis-1
tory. The report gives In detail progress
made by the society in collecting and
preserving historical material. The min?
utes and flies In possession of the so?
ciety are of Inestimable value. Vlr-j
glnia Is richer in political and rellgl-i
ous history than any other State In the
Union. The report states that a vast |
quantity of valuable hiatorlcal material
is In the possession of the society that
is unbound, and that should be ar?
ranged and preserved by binding. No?
body is paid to do the work of the so?
ciety. All money appropriated goes to
the work itself, not to paying salaries.;
Resolutions were adopted for secur?
ing annual and life memberships In the
society, and to arrange for a public
meeting to be held in Richmond dur?
ing the winter to promote the Interests

Realizing that the general public looks forward each year to our ANNUAL HOLIDAY
CLEARANCE SALE and we more than anxious to make this our banner year, have collected
the largest stock of high grade pianos ever assembled under one roof in Richmond. In addition
we have many discontinued styles, sample pianos, pianos returned from rental, some that are
slightly shopworn. To turn this stock over quickly we have decided to inaugurate this our
TWENTIETH ANNUAL HOLIDAY CLEARANCE SALE of pianos at prices and terms never
before approached in the history of piano selling in Virginia.
