"As a member of the Commercial Club standing committee on interur ban roads, I was not invited to meet with it when the Deuker statement was considered. Mr Deuker's course in that matter does not. meet with my approval. I was present when the play was made and I have a pretty full knowledge of the situation. 1 am not ready to give Mr. Deuker a certifi cate of good character In connection therewith. "B. B. JOHNSON." The above communication appeared in the Palladium yesterday in opposi tion to the splendid tribute paid Henry Deuker by the committees of the Com mercial club and the T. P. A., for his services rendered in assisting in clear ing up the traction muddle that has demoralized the jobbing trade of Rich mond for the past year. These re marks of Mr. B. B. Johnson are typic ally Johnsonesque, they show the same spirit that all along has kept the city and the traction line at loggerheads, while the business interests of the city suffered and firms in other cities reap ed the benefit that rightfully belor.geI to this city. Under the domination of Johnson the board of works and the traction officials were never able to reach any kind of an understanding. Now. thanks to the Commercial club, T. T. A., and Mr. Deuker. freight, ser vice will again be resumed, a franchise satisfactory to both the city and the traction company has been signed, and Richmond's wholesale trade will again bo in a position to do thousands of dollars worth of business that they have been shut out of during the past year. But Mr. Johnson says that he is not willing to give Henry Deuker a certificate of good tharacter. That might be a deadly threat were it not for the fact that Mr. Johnson is Mr. Johnson, and that as such. Mr. Deuker does not. require a certificate of good character from his hands. The only- possible explanation of this enmity on j the part of Mr. Johnson towards Mr. j Deuker can be explained only on the ; ground that it is on account of the part Mr. Deuker played at the meeting of the council in call-! ing attention to certain complaints that had been made to him relative to Mr. Johnson's ice trust giving short weight in the delivery of ice to con sumers. Hut then it is hard to be lieve that so patriotic a citizen as Mr. Johnson, one who was a member of the board of works, is so anxious to un selfishly work for the interests of his fellow citizens, could allow himself to be swayed by any such personal mo- tive in thus assailing Mr. Deuker. So, p'-ibb' the r-;il reason for this re- fusal to give Mr. Deuker a certificate of g0O(j (.hara,.tfr will remain one of the hidden mysteries of the world un- less Mr. Johnson enlightens us as to the deep, underlying causes of hfs great displeasure for the aforesaid Henry Deuker. And then, possibly, if he does so enlighten us this enlighten ment will come in the shape of an other masterpiece surpassing that fam ous epic in which l.e disclosed to a wonderinn world the terrible treach ery and double dealing of one Theo dore Roosevelt to one William TafL NEW PROPERTY FOR JAIL SITE Lots South of the Wayne County Jail Purchased by County Council. COURT HOUSE LAWN SAVED PURCHASE OF YESTERDAY PRE CLUDES THE POSSIBILITY OF BUILDING NEXT TO THE COURT HOUSE. At the meeting of the county coun lil yesterday afternoon, .7."o was ap propriated for the purchase of the Thurman property located on South Second street, directly south of the county jail property. The owner of fered to dispose of the property last spring for SIJ.-jO. He has since rep resented that he is willing to sell it for the price specified at first. By the ac quisition of this property the county secures additional ground upon which to build, in case an addition is made to the jail or sheriff's residence. The purchase, also, practically pre cludes tho possibility of the jail being located on the court house square at some future date. Wayne county will have to erect a new jail within a few years and it had been suggested that it be placed on the court house block. There has been opposition to this proposition aroused and public sentiment ssems to be unfavorable to such a change. It is intended that the new jail shall be larger and more modernly equipped. The opportunity to purchase the Thurman property at the low figure was accepted by the county council as a business venture and in order to have the lot when the time arrives to build the addition. He Went, Though. The bibulous citizen was holding high carnival in the street when an of ficer approached him and said: "Come on with me to the station house." The disturber of the peace pulled himself loose from the officer and be gan: "Hold on minute, m' friend." "No, I won't hold on a minute. You come with me." "Hold on Jus' half minute. I want jus' one word with you." "All right." replied the officer im patiently. "Be quick about it What Is It you want to say?"

Thousands of ballots have already been cast but it is safe ly estimated that not one half of the total number of votes has been cast.

Unless every minute and even every second is made to do its part toward securing votes, a few of the candidates in the contest may be disappointed. Two candidates. Miss Ida I'.eeson of Greensfork and Miss Jennie Wine of this city, have Massed the Iihhiuo murk and It is expected that within the next two weeks they will have reached the 200,000 mark. Other candi dates are slowly slipping up on the leaders and the highest vote is not yet within the reach of any one of the contestants. The regular ballots will appear In each issue, entitling the lady voted for to one vote. Remember you can enter the contest any time you wish to, so "get busy and keep busy." The conditions of the contest are as fol lows: CONDITIONS.

The By Herbert Kaufman There is a vast distinction between distribution for the sake of increasing the CIRCULATION FIGURES and distribution for the sake of increasing the number of ADVERTISING RESPONSES. There is a difference between street sales at hours when the reader has but scant opportunity to look through the scare heads and street sales when the reader is either going to or returning from his HOME. There is a difference between a circulation which strikes the SAME reader several times in the SAME day and the circulation which does NOT repeat the individual. There is a difference between circulation which is concentrated into an area from which every reader can be expected to come to your establishment if you can INTEREST him. and a circulation that spreads over half a dozen states and shows its greatest volume in territory so far from your establishment that you can't get a buyer out of ten thousand readers. You've got to weigh and measure all these things when you weigh and measure circulation figures. It isn't the number of copies PRINTED, but the number of conies SOLD not the number of papers DISTRIBUTED, but the number of papers distributed in NEAR ENOUGH territory not the number of readers REACHED, but the number of readers who have the price to BUY what you want to SELL that determine the value of circulation to YOU. You can take a single egg and whip it into an omelette souffle which SEEMS to be a WHOLE PLATEFUL, but the extra bulk is just HOT AIR and SUGAR the change in form has not changed the amount of egg SUBSTANCE it's the SUBSTANCE in circulation, just as it is the NUTRITION in the egg that COUNTS. (Copyright, l?yS.) STORIES FROM THE NATIONAL CAPITAL From The Palladium's Special Correspondent, Ralph IYI. Whiteside Washington. June ".. Telegraphy is a fine thing, because it is possible sometimes to do a little talking in the presence of others than the operator and thus save many embarrassing sit uations. The shortest telegraph line in the world is in the office of Fourth As sistant Postmaster General DeGraw, a veteran operator. Mr. DeGraw's outer office is presid ed over by his private secretary, Mr. Allen, who also can hold the wire. The line runs from the outer to the inner office. A few days ago a senator happened in and began a conversation with Sec retary Allen. While they were talk ing a tall, broad-shouldered man, wear ing a broad-rimmed hat and a stern, disgruntled expression, happened in. Without so much as excusing himself he begHrfc talking. "Young man," he said, '"I am post master at Blanksville. Texas. An in spector came down our way the other dav and looked over mv accounts. I thought I'd come up and see what you people had against us. If any galoot has had the nerve to make charges i against me, I want to near them right off the reel. Understand';". Secretary Allen understood all right. "Awful glad to see you. Glad you dropped in while in town. Have a seat." Then he sent over the wire this mes sage to Mr. DeGraw in the inner office: "Postmaster from Blanksville here. Mad as hornet because Inspector look ed over his accounts. Thinks some one made charges and came all the way to see who had the nerve to ques- tion his honesty. Get papers in case and look them over. He wants to see you. Bad frame of miiid." Mr. DeGraw immediately sent for the papers and examircd th-m. Then he sent a message to Nr. Allen. "Cllck-a-click-click. Hold him out side a few minutes. Be right out. Papers show he's O. K." "Fine weather we're having. Mr. DeGraw's busy at the present minute, but he'll receive you in a short time," said the secretary. "Yep fine weather," said the post master. ' If any one thinks they can throw mud on my reputation he'll be mighty badly fooled. Never spent a cent dishonestly earned in my life. Never even borrowed as much as a chew of tobacco that I didn't pay back. The durned inspector came around my place and never said no'hing; just went ahead with his inspecting Ast' ' 'ira u,r ,t0 3u"'e a . ?r,Rk J?" iuarji.l. 1 IWHJ"ru llj-iii. ci"c melt ovu.'- I one had been throwin' mud when he j refused a sociable drink.

He didn't remember of ev- Mr. DeGraw. but he! ; -ust have been introduced to him i three years ago. when he was in Washington to secure his appointment. Mr. DeGraw- admitted he had a splen did memory for faces. "Knew you the minute I clapped eyes on you.'' he said. "How's the folks In Blanksville?" Fire minutes later Elkins was on tis Omelette Souffle way to his hotel to look up the time tables to U-aru when the next train lrtt for Texas. "One of the sjuarost, most decent man 1 ever met," he commented to himself, as he cut off a slice of Peo ple's Ch'ice" tobacco. "Got a better memory for faces than I liavr, too." The truth of the existence of this private telegraph line has never been admitted by the principals, but it is widely accented. To admit of its ex istence, of course, would destroy its usefulness to some extent. Here's an ot her story told of it : A postmaster happened in one day to see Mr. ivGraw at a time when it was impossible. The postmaster was persistent. "Insists on seeing you." ticked the instrument. "Have to choke him off somehow," came back the answer. "Ijooks likf a sticker," was th re ply. " Making himself comfortnhie." 'Have to get him to come again. Simply impossible," clicked back. Allen was about to reply when the stranger, walking from" a window, said ithprp was a fir1 th fifr t- Allen went to the window to look out. I The stranger Immediately grabbed the ' , , ' J " ! Tell that to the marines." he wired. "This is Jim Blake, from Washington County, Pennsylvania, and I want to see vou." Allen was caught with the goods. Rlake sent Morse along as well as he did. In less than two minutes he walked into Mr. DeGraw's office, wearing a broad grin. Mr. DeGraw also grinned kind of sheepishly. Washington is laughing at the story of an occurrence in import ant government office.

His sed entary habits became a great bore. A few days hso he dropped in for a so cial call, selected his favorite cane-s-eated chair and began his .sitting. The official, who watched his every move ment, waited about five minutes, then approached with a look of concern and indignation. 'Confound those office hoys and their practical jokes!" he exclaimed.
