that it was an elVort of Messrs. Llelviu
* Brown to get exclusive control of
tho streets of Norfolk, when all
other eleetrieal companies would
be forced to uho their wites,
ond that Messrs. llelviu .V
Browu would soon have a monopoly.
The question was considered by tho
Councils and the Common branch
passed the ordinance giviug the uso of
the streets to Ilelviu .v Brown, but the
Seket Council refused to uouour and
the whole tptsstiou was referred to n

jNorfolk la-1 March, at whieh time a
tetter was sent out by tho Ordinance
(Jommittee asking bids /or ? competing
line of telephone. < ?ue of these lei
Cers came iuto his hands, lie looked
<jver tho city and came to the con?
clusion that Norfolk would he a
growing city and eventually the
metropolis of the South.
lie said be counted bi'.i poles bet wern
Ornnby ami Church streets and came
to the conclusion that the thing lor
Jioifolk would be au underground ays
som. lie was a practical man and then
oamcd the great works of this cbarao
tor he had constructed. He said he
'Was a native ot Virginia and loved the
fclate as much as auy man.
lie then argued that ihe advanced
thinkers of tho whole country upon
matters of electricity eudorse the uu
dergiound system and gave the mime?
eif eminent men who had testified iu au
injunction ease in favor of uudor
ground wires. Boston was one of the
greatest eleetrieal centres and there
?>re moro und-rgrutiud wires iu that
city than iu auy other city in the
United States.
r.iVB wiiiKs.
lie spoko of the danger to man and
beaut from wires prostrated by snow
und winds ami gave au instance of a
Jittlo girl that hail been fearfully
bumcu by a live wire.
iu regard to the matter of bonds, ho
eaitl tho bond in New l'ork was i.'.'id,
000, and in Norfolk $10,000, lie
thought the bond Bullleionlly large.
Ju speaking of the ordinance, .Mr.
WilloOS asked who prepared the ordi?
nance. Mr. U el von saut the urdiiuiuco
comtuitloe did so,
Wae not the draft by your at
tomuy ?
Mr. llelven asked Col Starke if ho
prepared the ordinance and no said no.
You are answered, Mr, Willcox, said
Mr. ilelviu.
No I om uot. Did your have an at
toruoy.ptiur to tho employment of Col.
Starke?
No, sir.

Col, Starko interrupted Mr. llelviu,
and sau) ho thought it would be im?
proper to have a bond from tho Hub- I
Way Company smaller thau Ihe boud
?given by tho City Uasiigbt Company

Mr. Ilelvm tbeu read a number of
letters from elcctriciauB, Bhowmg tbu
damage winch results from electricity

ami gas pipes from the ovorhead wires,
which ia avoidod by tho underground
system.
lie saitl there was a great tight over
Norfolk and tho question was simply
lor high rates; that the liell ( ouipuny
did not desire to give up a gooa thing,
He then submitted hia papers for tho
inspection ol the column tee.
In reply to a tpiestiou front Mr.

laid at tho moat and not less thau two,
ANOIIir.lt PltOTBST,
Mr, J. 13, Heath, Jr., appeared as
at oruey tor the Southern Hell Tele?
phone > onipauy autl read a well pre?
pared address. It was a proposition,
he said, tu compel the pcoplo of Nor?
folk to pay for the next ten years j$ 18
to Messrs. jBrowii-llelviu anil in that
tune Itichmond might he paying ouly
S10 per year. All of tho latest inveu
tions were owned by tho Hell Tele
phono Company and that these inven?
tions were leased by tho Southern
liell Telephone Company.
siicii.d the ordiuauce be passed au
eflort would be made to compel all of
the electric companies to put their
wires under ground, lie said the
propositions made to olher cities was
ouly to be allowed to do business,while
in Norfolk they always ask for an ex?
clusive Iranehioe.
11ATTI.KSNAKK AND THE UABY.
Mr. llelviu was asked by City
i'.ngineer Brooke if ho could jmt the
electric light wires iu the pipe with the
telephone wires'.'
Ho said, yes, he could do it, but ho
would doit no sooner thau he would
put a rattlesnake in a cradle with a
Pithy. II the eleotric companies de?
sired he could arrange to nut their
wites underground.
Col. 1.. 1). .Starke said he came to
Ihe meeting to hear objections and
hat; heard none.
The only objection raised was that
there not now enough streets for the
corporations already here, lie thought
there would never be auy cheaper tele
phonos till somebody made tho Hell
Company reduce iu rates. He said all
of these other couipouies should he
sntislied with the bund, as they were
not required to g,:vu any bond them?
selves.
Major (irandy said when be eigued
Ihe petition protesting he was iu
formed that these gentlemen would go
down sevt rn! tuet, and knowing that
his property might be injured, and the
company being composed of Btraugors,
hu thought they ought to be hedged
against injuring other people. Ho
said, ns a stockholder ol the City (las
Company, he did nut object to theso
people coming, but ha felt certain that
there will bo dillioulty iu escaping an
injury to the pipes ol his company ami
these gentlemen bhonld be required to
give a Buflicient bond.
Mr. Willcox then tillered an amend?
ment providing for a eutlioient bond
fiir the protection of Ihe city aud in
dividual?,
Mr. Willcox eoitl he would have to
r. ply to a few remarks made by Mr.
Ilelviu ami Col. Starke. Ho then said
that he understood Mr. llelviu to say
that ail of tho telephone companies
were olVshots of tho Sell Company;
that they were compelled to use the tti
veutiono of that company, und asked
Mr. llelviu the kind of service he pro?
pose i to give, Mr. Helvin soul thai
would ho determined when tho fran
chise was ??ranted,
Mr. Willcox replied that ho expected
such an answer and asked nhat would
prevent Messrs. Brown A: llelviu from
entering iuto a ooutrsot with the Hell
Company, whereby rates would not be
reduced. Mr, lielvin said he proposed
to give a aheap service aud would htwe
a telephone system independent of the
present syetem,

Ouo important development in tho
ease is the discovery that lor a timo the
gang arrested in Chicago and Hamil?

They were suspected by a local
deputy marshal ol con nie t f el t lug coin,
and he had made reatly to raid tbutu,
hut in somu manner they learuod ol

was a fuw days before her arrest iu the

Hamilton to Bllllaio and asked at the
American Express ollice for certain
packages utidiested to her. She got
lliotu ami putting them iu a big satcUel

detectives discovering from Chicago
that stamps had beeu sent here, were
puzzled as tu what she did with them,
When Mis. Mack was told that the
stamps bad been found she fainted in
her cell aud the matron had hard work
reviving her. So loug as the stamps
were undiscovered she could not be
directly connected wiih the Chicago
eoftntorfeiters. Now, however, her
last hope of escape has gone.
The work done by these counterfeit
ers was almost perfect. Ihe only way
iu which the fraud could tut discovered
was by u careful comparison of tin
color ol the good aud bail stamps, the
counterfeits being a shade too light,
