Richmond Venture in This Line Has Been Found an Unprof itable One to the Invest ors. ASSETS IN EXCESS OF THE LIABILITIES. Effort to Enlist Additional Cap ital Was Not Successful Al though the Location Is Con sidered a Good One. Saturday of this week the property of the Richmond Hat Manufacturing company, which has had a strenuous existence since ' its organization, two or three years ago. will be sold at pub lic sale. All the valuable machinery, fixtures, stock on hand, etc., will be put under the hammer. It is stated that the liabilities of the company amount to $7,500, and the assets are estimated at $1S,000. About one-third of the creditors are local people. The other creditors are mostly eastern men of whom the ma chinery was purchased. It is expect ed that air the creditors will receive the full amount of their claims. Mortgage for Creditors. About a year ago the company nearly went into the hands of a re ceiver, but it was finally decided that the company execute a mortgage in favor of its creditors. Officials of the company thought that within a year's time this mortgage, which was held by .a trustee, W- K- Bradbury, for the creditors, could be lifted and that the concern could then continue business unhampered of its financinl burdens. The time ; for paying thi3 mortgage expired -ttte for faur weeks ago, and the company had been un able to lift it, consequently Trustee Bradbury reached the conclusion that the concern was a losing venture, so he had the mortgage foreclosed. An Unprofitable Venture. It is stated that the Richmond Hat Manufacturing company proved an un profitable venture owing to the insuf ficient capital invested in the con cern. Frank C. Kibbey is the princi pal stockholder, and president of the concern.

TROSTEES DISCOSS HEW SCHOOL LAWS Some of Them Are Approved But Others Are Not So v Satisfactory, i TRUSTEE BOWMAN'S PAPER. HE GIVES HIS IDEA IN REFER. ENCE TO A SUCCESSFUL TEACH ERPOPULARITY NOT ALWAYS A TEST. At the April meeting of the town ship trustees, held at the office of the county superintendent of schools, there was a general discussion of the school laws passed at the last session of the legislature and which went into effect on Wednesday. All these laws were carefully explained to the trus tees." Some of the new acts met with universal favor but others were not favored. L. S. Bowman, trustee of Jefferson township, read an excellent paper on "My Idea of a Successful Teacher." Mr. Bowman, said in part: "Appearan ces are often deceptive. The popu larity of a teacher in a certain dis trict is not an absolute guarantee of excellence. It is possible for a teach er to go into a school and by reason of agreeable social qualities gain the respect and confidence of most, or all of the pupils and patrons of the dis trict and yet not be an excellent tea cher. . Reasons for Failure. "Indeed the teacher himself, in the absence of any friction or criticism, may think of his work as being very successful. " They may all be for the the time mistaken. On the other hand a teacher' may go Into a new district to teach "and the fact that he does not do just like previous teachers did ; that his personality is different; that a few patrons were opposed to him because he did not belong to their church, or lodge or club, and that they knew a third cousin or his who has a bad reputation all these reasons may temporarily cause a low estimate to be placed on the teacher's work and abil ity, when in reality he may be doing most excellent work, almost wholly unappreciated Popularity is usually but not always a safe guide in meas uring the -value -of a good teacher."

All through the lonz night a vx.sr.j was kept by court attaches. The Ju rors kept at their argument and at times their raised voices could be heard in the room adjoining the ju rors room. Before he had anv breakfast Thaw asked to be hurried over to the prisoners' pen In the court building, so he could get the first word of the verdict. He was not ta ken over; however, until the jurors re turned from breakfast. At S:'J the furors filed out for breakfast, and i turned less than an hour later.

Immedi ately it was rumored that & verdict was about to be' returned. However, they asked for practically additional instructions in request for exhibits in the trial. The jurors filed into tho court room. District Attorney Jcr- ome was there, as was also Justice j Fitzgerald. Thaw's lawyers were 'sent for and soon arrived. The f-x-ihibits asked for follow: Plans of the Madison Square roof garden, the I Longfellow letters, Thaw's will an I j codicil, the Comstock letters and Je--onie's and Delmas's hypothetical ques tion. 4 Feverish Mob Gathers. Outside the court house a feveri.'tt mob gathered, swelling momentarily. Saloons in the neighborhood did a land office business. Mrs. William Thaw, Countess of Yarmouth, Mrs. George Carnegie and Edward Tha'.v arrived at the court house at half pat nine and waited for the Jury's action in Justice Fitzgerald's private office. The jury then asked before returning to deliberate, that the testimony ct Meyer Cohen, witness for the state, who testified to seeing the shooting, be read to them. Judge Fitzgerald so ordered. , Cohen told how Thaw changed his course while leaving the roof garden, so as to walk past Stan ford White. The testimony of Paul Brady, fireman at the roof garden, was also read to the jury. Brady took the revolver away from Thaw. Meanwhile Thaw had written a, statement to the newspaper men, re questing that each man sign his name on the back of it and return it to the warden to be preserved. Packed,1 Ready to Leave. Thaw's note read: "I am told It V impossible to tell beforehand just what a jury will do, so I am attending to my ordinary affairs and preparing for the best as it is simpler to unpack if necessary than it would be to re turn here for my things if the verdict is favorable. I am packing my be longings. I had a good cold bath this morning and a good breakfast.
