With Liabilities $500,000.
Judgo WnddlU lias Appointed Theo]ihllns
Tunis, of Unltlniorc, nnd dipt. II. It.
Nichols, of Norfolk, Receivers for tho
Great Lutubor Firm.
Receivers have been appointed for
the Tunis Lumber Company. The ap?
plication was filed by Mrs. Georgeanna
Wilson late Thursday afternoon In the
United States District Court, and,
.Judge Waddill, presiding, appointed
Thcophilus Tunis, of Baltimore, and
Caiit. H. B. Nichols, of Norfolk, re?
ceivers. Mrs. Wilson's claim is a Judg?
ment, confessed by the Tunis company,
for 30o,7&y.S:> in the United States Court
it Is slated elsewhere that the lia?
bilities of the company are $500,1)00. It
is .stated also that, having a plant in
Herkley worth $150,000 to $200,000, a
slock of lumber worth, say, $1:10,000,
and collectable accounts to a large
amount, and standing timber of im?
mense value, there ought to be enough
in the aggregate to pay the liabilities.
B] Lb OK COMPLAINT.
In her bill of complaint, liled by At?
torney M. M. Tunis, the plaintiff avers
that she is informed that during the
past year the defendant company made
large expenditures for the purchase of
limber lands, the deferred payments
of which are still maturing and un?
paid; that It has outstanding largo
book accounts due to it, which are not
readily collectible by reason of the
falling and depressed condition in the
lumber market now, and for some
months past; that the defendant has
been unable for some months past, ow?
ing to the depressed lumber conditions,
to advantageously market the product
of its mills, whioh during the last year
has greatly increased; and that by
reason of these facts it lias been ne?
cessary for the defendant to provide
funds for the current expenditures of
its business from sources other than
the ordinary revenues and resources of
the company, In the hope and expecta?
tion that a revival In the condition of
tho lumber market would enable It to
pay off these loans and other Indebt
edncss from the ordinary business of
the eompnny and to conduct Its busi?
ness thereafter successfully. The
plaintiff avers that these extraordinary
tesources have been about exhausted,
and that the company is now embnr
rassed to meet large demands which
are constantly maturing against it.
The bill further says: "Your oratrlx
Is informed and believes that though
the defendant company owns large and
valuable assets. Its obligations are cor?
respondingly large, and that the com
pany is insolvent. Certain it is, your
oratrlx ? believes, that If the assets of
the company were forced upon the
market at the Instance of contending
creditors through the process of the
courts of the various States, such sac- I
rlfice In values would be necessarily
made, and such large expenditures in
the way of litigation and otherwise In?
curred, that in the result the assets of
the company would not be sufficient to
pay its indebtedness nnd insolvency
would result, to the rreat loss and
damage of all creditor^ as well as to
the comnnnv itself."
In its 'answer to the plaintiff's bill,
filed by Judge d. Tucker Brooke, coun?
sel, the Tunis Company denies that It
is Insolvent, and states that its aggre?
gate assets are considerably in excess
of its liabilities, and that the latter can
be fully discharged to the various cred?
itors and leave a surplus for the com?
pany's stockholders. The company
says further: "Your respondent ad?
mits that if its assetR were either
wasted in litigation between conflict?
ing creditors in their efforts to obtain
preference, the one over the other, or
sacrificed by being placed on the mar?
ket In large quantities, or at disadvan?
tageous times, or as the result Of
forced s#les, it is entirely probable that
such loss would be made: that owing
to such sacrifices and conduct of tho
affairs of your respondent the result
would be that tho assets would not
turn out to be sufficient to pay your
respondent's liabilities. Your respon?
dent believes, therefore, that It is es?
sential to tho Interest of all he credi?
tors, as well as to the respondoni and
its stockholders, that tho assets of the
company should be carefully preserved
and judiciously administered, so as to
realize as nearly as possible a fair
value therefor and to prevent one cred?
itor obtaining a preference over others,
which your respondent believes can?
not, owing to Its embarrassed condi?
tion, be successfully done by?your re?
spondent with the resources at its
command. Your respondent believes
that It Is to the liest interest of all
concerned that a receiver should be

ship was a grent surprise. Not only
the lumber trudc. but all the business
men of tho city were Ignorant of the
embarrassments of this large and re?
putable llrm. A prominent member of
the lumber trade hero. In speaking of
the llrm to a reporter for the Vlrglnlan
Pllot. stated that the Indications are
that the Tunis Company will pay out.
But its financial status is not known
here. Its headquarters Is In Baltimore
and few. if any persons, here will be
affected by the failure.
He said that valuable standing tim?
ber, a large amount of marketable lum?
ber, say $130,000 worth, an up-to-date
plant, worth $150.000 or $200,000, with a
large amount of collectible open ac?
counts should enable the receivers to
pay the debts.
SOLD ON OPEN ACCOUNT.
The Tunis Company, he said, sold
lumber all over the country in carload
lots. These lots were considered small
In the lumber trade, $200 and $300, and,
therefore, the merchants rarely gave
notes for them. They were sold on
ninety days- time. That plan required
the company to put out a large amount
of money for which theu> was no im?
mediate return. That, with large pur?
chases of timber lands, he supposed,
caused the embarrassment. The failure
of the Tunis Company will not affect
other concerns here. It will not affect
prices if the receivers continue to sell
:it the schedule rates. It is said there
are already many orders on file, which,
if filled, will consume a large part of
the stock on hand.
The plant has a capacity for 100,000
feet a day. The mill here is the chief
mill, the one at Baltimore having been
burned several years ago and not re?
built. That mill was Insured, so that
the company suffered no great lost.
This gentleman said also that the
members of the Tunis Company had
the respect of the trade and that the
other members would assist them in re?
turning to business.
ASSETS AND LIABILITIES.
Baltimore. Sept. 7.?Thcophilus Tu?
nis, of this citv. president of the
compnny. and H. B. Nichols, of Nor?
folk, Va.. were appointed receivers of
the Tunis Lumber Compnny to-day
In the United States Circuit Court.
An official of ihe company states that
the receivership was rendered neces?
sary by the unsatisfactory condition
of the lumber market, making It im?
possible to dispose of the company's
large stock of manufactured lumber,
except at great sacrifice, it Is be?
lieved by the company's ofliclals that
the receivership will be of short du?
ration. Similar action was taken in
Norfolk. Va.. yesterday.
A statement of assets and liabilities
is being prepared at the compnny's
offices, but until It is completed the
receivers refuse to estimate the
amount of either the liabilities or as?
KNOWN IN NORFOLK
IN TWO YEARS MORE MRS. MAY
BRICK WILL BE FREE.
Of a woman well-known In Norfolk,
the London Dispatch of September 3d
"But two years more of prison life
remain before Mrs. Florence Maybrlck,
although her sentence, when she was
condemned for poisoning her husband,
was for life imprisonment. The reason
for this is that a life sentence for a
woman In England really means fifteen I
yenrs, and as the prisoner's conduct has
been exemplary, she hns obtained com?
mutation to an extent which will have
the effect of restoring her to her friends
In a couple of years.
"Despite the fact that she has aged
greatly In prison, has become gray
haired and lost much of the beauty
which formerly rendered her so fasci?
nating, yet there is no reason for ap?
prehending that Bhe will not survive
until the hour sound3 for her libera?
"Throughout the past week efforts
have been made to obtain official con?
firmation of a circumstantial story to
the effect that tho Secretary of State
for the Home Department has had for
a long time In his possession a duly
signed confession by Mrs. Maybrlck of
the fact that she had poisoned her hus?
band. There Is not a Judge nor a
lawyer In England who does not know
and believe that Mrs. Maybrlck was
unfairly tried and unfairly convicted,
and had it not been for her alleged
confession, which she is asserted to
have signed within the first few months
of her imprisonment. It Is probable that
she would have been quietly pardoned."
Virginia's Big Fruit Crop
"The fruit market never was In a
more flourishing condition than to?
day." This Is a statement made by one
of the largest retail merchants in the
city, and a man who has kept up with
the market for the last twenty years.
Peaches In particular are pouting in
from the Valley of Virginia and also
from Delaware and Maryland. It Is the
general opinion of market men that the
crop this year Is remarkable, both in
quantity and quality.

COL- BOWDEN CUSTODIAN
APPOINTED TO HAVE CHARGE OF
THE NEW POSTOFFICE BUILD?
Colonel George E. Bowden was noti?
fied yesterday morning of his appoint?
ment as custodian of the new "postoflice
building at Plume and Atlantic streets.
The appointment Is mude uy im? .-sec?
retary of the Treasury.
The building is not completed yet.
nnd has not been transferred from the
possession of the contractors to that
of the government, "tout there is some
government property, for which the
contractor Is not responsible. It is
that which Colonel Bowden Is appoint?
ed to take care of. He will have the
appointment of janitors and other per?
sons needed to take charge of the
property and protect the premises.
The original design for the use of the
government property here was that the
new building Is to be used exclusively
for the postoflice and the United States
Courts. The postoflice Is to haVc the
first and main Moor: the courts tire
to have the entire second floor.
The old building on Main street is to
be used for all other government pur?
poses. Thus, the main floor, where the
postoflice is now, will be used for a
bonded warehouse. The merchants
will have the privilege or storing there
for two years merchandise on which
dtuy has been paid. There Is no such
place now. No merchandise is stored
because the government has no facili?
ties for storing. One pnrt of the main
lloor will be reserved for the use of
the United States surgeon.
Tho second lloor will be used, as now.
for offices: while the third floor will he
altered from a court room to offices.
The United States Navy paymasters,
the engineers and other ofllces. which
may be outside, will bo transferred to
the old building that will be repaired
nnd refitted for that purpose.
ANOTHER ISSUE OF BONDS*
BRAMBT.ETON STREETS TO HAVE
THE PROCEEDS OF $75.000?CIT?
IZENS TO PAY HALF.
The Finance Committee of the City
Councils met In the Treasurer's office
at 1 o'clock yesterday. It was a joint
meeting with the Local Board o flm
provement of Brambleton Ward, made
up as follows: Messrs. Gale, chair?
man: Sterling, Ferobee. Held and
The subject of discussion was the
proposed Improvements In Brnmbleton
Ward. There was a large meeting,
during which many subjects were dis?
cussed In executive session.
The final action of the Finance Com?
mittee was an agreement to report
to Councils favorably on the Issue of
$55,000 bonds and $22.000 in bonds for
the improvement of the following ave?
nues, namely: Clalborne, Highland,
Reservior. Willoughby and Windsor.
These bonds are to be sold and the
proceeds are to be devoted to the im?
provement of the streets.
The Finance Committee probably did
decide so, but no doubt the streets
are to be Improved according to the
plan of the Local Board, namely, they
are to have 27-foot roadways. 9-foot
sidewalks, and small grass plots be?
tween the sidewalks and the road?
Next, the question will come up he
fore the City Councils. If acted on
there the question will he Anally dis?
posed of. That is whether the resi?
dents along the avenues to be Improv?
ed shall be assessed one-half the cost
of the Improvement or get on without

STEAMERS NEWPORT NEWS AND
PENNSLAVANIA COMPETE FOR
Ever since the arrival of the steamer
Pennsylvania, of the New York, Phila?
delphia and Norfolk railroad, to this
port there has be-en any amount of
rivalry between her officers nnd those
of the steamer Newport News, of the
Norfolk and Washington Steamboat
Company, as to which boat had the
most speed. The two rivals met at
Old Point last Saturday evening and
"had it out" on Chesapeake Bay.
The Washington Star of Thursdav
afternoon had the following to say of
"The steamer Newport News, Cap?
tain Luckett, Is still the queen of the
Chesapeake Bay. and has sustained her
reputation of being the fastest steamer
of the fleet. For some time Captain
Cason and the officers of the New S'ork.
Philadelphia, and Norfolk line steamer
Pennsylvania, have been anxious to try
her speed with that of the 'News.'
and the opportunity came Saturday
evening last. Both steamers left Old
Point together, and though the forced
draft was used on tho Pennsylvania,
the 'News.' it Is stated, Jn an hour's
run got away from her easily."

New Switch In Tripoli Street
?T-h<?-AYlteh of Hie?fcyeHey railway at
Tripoli street was Insufficient. For the
large motor cars of the Atlantic Ter?
minal Company it answered very Well,
but so soon as the trailers were at?
tached and the two cars come in as a
train the shilring proved difficult. As
the additional switch would occupy
more of the roadway than had been
ask tod or consented to. tin- City Engi?
neer would not permit the work to be
done till he received an assurance that
the additional switch for the trailers
would be temporary. When the railway
crosses City Hall avenue and goes Into
Its new station-house that Is proposed
there the additional switch on Tripoli
street will be removed. So soon as
this agreement was effected last night
the railway company began the work
of laying the new switch. The work?
men were at it all night.
