Mr. D. A. Ritchie, secretary to the Gov?

satisfy his mind about the splendid oil
find which had been reported to him. Not
half had been told. He found that
oil had bursted out where the ground
was tapped as high as thirty feet and
that now it was flowing at the rate of
about seventy-five barrels a day. Th-s
very hour that the agents of the Stand?

began to lay tholr pipes to conduct the
green and muddy-looking fluid to the
company's refinery. It buya the oil in
the gross state and roflnes it them?

he nnd his associates have a piece of
well-paying property and many others
are, too, for they are leasing land ail

?The Subcommittee Met Too
L?telo Take Action,
CITY ATTORNEY'S OPINION
It Wae Rend and the Tranefer Scheme
Roturned to the Oompany With the
Request That it Bo Modified
and Submitted Again.
For a space of probably fifteen min?
utes?from 11 to U?16 o'clock?last night
the subcommittee on streets considered
the matter of transfers, adjourning to
meot again next Thursday night, when
an effort will be made to arrivo at a con?
clusion and formulate a report on the
all Important question.
Though the session last night was ex?
tremely short, It wad plainly evidenced
that the five members of the committee
are anxious to dispose of the matter,
j and It may be stated that at least one
Important step was taken by'th *n. The i
transfer scheme submitted by the Pas
6enger and Power Company was return?
ed to them with a requert that their
attorney formulate a plan ln accordance
with the opinion of City Attorney Pol?
It also developed that at least two
members of the committee realise that
the company Is now operating at great
disadvantage, owing to existing ordi?
nances and conditions. These gentle?
men expressed themselves as disposed to
remove these things and treat with the
company on a fair business basis.
?? BOTH POINTS.
The opinion of City Attorney PoUard,
which was read by Clerk Stratton Im?
mediately after the body was called to
order, was given the closest attention.
As stated In The Times-Dispatch last
week, the opinion Is that transfers may
be required at points of both Intersec?
tion and divergence under certain condi?
After this paper had been read, Mr.
Whlttet moved to tako from the table
a resolution offered by him at a recent
meeting of the committee, the gist of
which Is that in view of existing trans?
fer ordinances thero Is no necessity for
change and recommending that the
present laws bo rigidly enforood. He
moved that this be adopted.
Major Miles M. Martin, representing
the company, argued against such hasty
action, and at the request of Mr. Phil?
lips, Mr. AA'hlttet withdrew his motion.
Mr. Phillips, owing to the lateness of
tho hour, moved that the transfer plan
submitted by the car company be re?
turned to them with a request that a
scheme 1>. accordance with tho opinion
of the city attorney bo prepared. This
was adopted, after which tho body ad?
journed to meet again next Thursday
night, whea Major Martin will bo ready
with the new plan.
Present last night were: Messrs.
Adams, chairman; AVhittct, Bahen,
West* and Phillips. Tho two former be?
ing members of the Grounds and Build?
ings Committee it was Impossible for the
body to get together until after these
gentlemen were excused from further
attendance upon the Grounds and Build?
ings body. This was 11 o'clock.
General Manager Huff, Major Martin
and a stenographer were on hand In be?
half of the car company.
CITY ATTORNEY'S OPINION.
The opinion of City Attorney Pollard
The question submitted to the City
Attorney was embodied in a reso:ution
adopted by the subcommittee requesilng
the City Attorney to "give his opinion
as to the right of tho city to requiro
transfers at points of divergence as we.I
The City Attorney, after quoting the
provisions of the several ordinances of
the city bearing upon thi question, sub?
mitted as h;.i conclusion tho following:
"By a comparison of these pioiisljns
It will be seen that the provisions o? the
franchise of tho Richmond Passenger
and Power Company are far more ex?
plicit and far-reaching than those con?
tained in the ordinance of the Richmond
Traction Company, occasioned, no
doubt, by tho fact that the Richmond
Passenger and Power Company was au?
thorized to operate many more lines than
tho Traction Company, and therefore
had many more points of contact be?
tween Its different lines than the Rich?
mond Traction Company.
"I am of opinion, reading these sev?
eral provisions of the two ordinances In
the light of the provision giving the
Richmond l'a^senger and Power Com?
pany the right to make and enforce any
reasonable regulations as to transfer
tickets or systems of transfers, to pre?
vent fraud, not inconsistent with the re?
quirements of their ordinance, that the
said company has the right to Insist that
a passenger desiring to bo transferred
from one line to another lino of that
company shall request tho transfer nt
the time of the- payment of tho fare, and
that such transfer shall be effective and
good only as a transfer to be used at
tho point of Intersection with the line to
which the party desires to bo transfer?
red. Whether this Is truo as to a pas?
senger requesting a transfer from the
Richmond Traction Copmany Is a more
serious question, and one of grave doubt,
but In view of the Importance of having
a uniform transfer system appllcab'o to
both lines, in order to prevent confusion
und promote th0 public Interest, I think
Lho doubt ought to bo solved In favor of
a construction which would apply the
same principio to tho ordinonco of the
Richmond Traction Company.
"I have, therefore, reached tho con?
clusion that where different lines lutei ?
sect on any stroot and run along the
same street, over the sanie tracks and
subsequently diverge, passing Into dif?
ferent streets, that the city can only
require tho railway companies to give
transfers at the point of intersection to
a passenger who boards the car before
reaching the point of Intersection, but
whero a passenger boards a car between
the point of Intersection and the point
of divergence then such point must be
construed to be a point of Intersection,
In the meaning of the ordinance, and the
rnllway companies may be roqulred to
give a transfer to a passengor, entitling
lim to be trans?'rred to another I ne at
such point, though a point of divergence;
but whether to make this requirement
would bo prcimotlvo of the public Inter?
est and Just to the railway companies Ir
a question of sound public policy to be
determined by lho Council after full In?
vestigation, In support of tho construc?
tion thnt this ought not to be done the
companies present many considera tinn?,
but they more properly address them?
selves to you than to me.
"It Is to lie born? In mind, however,
Hint Ill's construction only applies to
the lines operated over th? same tracks
having points of intersection a" well ns
divergence, and it has no appliest on to
points of Intersection at the termini of
lines, such as the terminus of the Lake
bide line at First and Broad Btreet?3, the
Chestnut ?mi line at Seventh and Broad
Streets, the Ainnchester line at the samo
point, the Beech Street line at Beech
and Main Streets and others that might

suoh? he would support It.
In reply to Mr. Pollock, the patron of
the tunendmont snld the Intent or ?
wns to close the Speedway on Bxmaa^,
that It'would havo such on orte,**' "?
that, he did not wish the committee to
vote upon It under a misapprehension.
After some furthor discussion, Mr. ? ??
look reverted to hie substituto and offered
It as follows: , _ .?_,-.;
"That the Speedway at Now nescrvolr
which bos been provided for the uso of
such citizens as may possess fast horses,
shall b* pormi tted to bo used at any
and all times tor the speeding of horses,
and all persons shall drive to the right
from entrance to said Speedway. But
this section shall not bo construed ns
giving tho right to have match races on
said Speedway, under penalty ? provides
horeln." ., _ ,
In presenting this substitute Mr. Pol?
lock said the Speedway -was opened by
the city at considerable cost for the ben?
efit of citizens, and the county had ne
rieht to closo It on Sunday if the prlv
|]?ge ls enjoyed harmlessly. It was a
movement ngninst personal liberty, whlon
tho Council hnd no right to make. So
far as borec-raclng was concerned, he
was opposed to It. and would vote for
anything to prohibit It He would join
hands with Mr. Bottoms to this extent,
but he thought It would bo sufficient and
right If the matoh-raclng were prevented
and the Speedway bo left open on Sun?
LEAD TO TROUBLE.
The reply of Mr. Bottoms was to the
effect that such a scheme would place
upon the park-keeper the responslbtlttj
of deciding what constitutes a rnce. Un?
less tho Speedway Is closed people will
frequent the place, and it will be Impos?
sible to draw the line at what Is rnrln*r
nnd what Is not. The Speedway, he said,
has been abused and has become an evil.
The very keeper himself ?rtld it wns
so. A belief that It was beine abused
Inspired the amendment.
Mr. Bottoms said before the minister?
ial unions of the city took the action
they aid he was moved with this con?
viction. He declared thnt the Speedway
should be closed on Sunday, and ho In?
sisted thnt his amendment accomplished
After some further discussion, the Pol?
lock substitute was lost by a vote of fu?
to three, and the Bottoms amendment
was unanimously adopted. The entire
ordinance as amended w&s then recom?
mended to the Council for adoption. Mr
Pollock did not, nfter all, Insist that It
be read. The Bottoms amendment as
accepted reads as follows:
"That the speedway at New Reservoir
Park, which has been provided to pre?
vent racing on tho Boulevard and othr-r
roads, and for the especial use of pUch
citizens of the city of Richmond as
may possess horses known as race
horses, shall be permlttPd to be used at
nny and all times (except Sunday) for
the trials of speed nnd for racing, and
all persons shall drive to the right from
entrance of ?nld speedway."
Repeated attempts wero mado by Mr.
Adams to get himself excused that ho
might attend another committee meeting
of some importance, but the members
refused to allow him to go. Mr. Adams
asked In rather forceful terms If the
city government couldn't be run without
him. One of the members suggested
laughingly, that ho be mado to apolo?
gize to tho .committee, Mr. Adams at
once arose nnd did so.

OLD HUTCH WON
Optional and Optimo Only
Beaten Favorites at New
(By Associated Press.)
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. B.-Opttonal and
Optimo were the only beaten favorites.
The sensation of the day's racing was
furnished by the handicap, in the fourth
race on the card. Old Hutch was made
favorite, and. cleverly ridden by Gannon,
landed the money. Buchanan, whose
mounts were recently limited, by tho
stewards to the horses owned by his
employer, Sam Hlldroth. had the mount
on Telam?n. The horse's performance
was extremely unsatisfactory, both to the
owner and the officials. Hlldreth lodged
a complaint with the stewards and an
order was issued, debarring Buchanan
from all privileges of the track. Sum?
