--Mr. W. F. Jenkins
, was complained of before the Mayor
yesterday for conducting a coke manufacturing kiln in the corporate limits, greatly to the annoyance of the surrounding residents.
The establishment is located near 15th street and Shockoe Creek
, a neighborhood peculiarly patronized by the Israelites denomination, three of whom protested vehemently that "somting tay cult not say wich, almost kilt tem. To smoke and stuff cum into teir vintows and mate tem so sick — and — and --and----." The Mayor
, in order to give Mr. Jenkins
an opportunity to produce rebutting evidence, continued the case till this morning.
