TO BE BUILT
Posltlve Utterance Made by
SELL JOHNSON'S ISLAND,
lt Will Eventually Be Disposed of by the
Company?New Structure Intended
Only for tho Useof Trolley
"You may quote me aa saylng that tho
Vlrg'lnla Paascnger and Power Com?
pany," sald Mr. Frltz SiUorrllug yeater?
day afternoon, "will wlth'.n tho next
twelve months-be tho prouf, possessor of
_, brldge of ItA; bwxf over Jaraes Rlver,
oonnectlng Richmond and Manchester.
rt Is our purposo to brlng the Petersburg
cara lnto Richmond, and this wlll be oc
compllslicd by menas of a new atructure
wlthln a yoar."
Continulng, Mr. Sltterding sald that
plans for the new brldge had been 'drawn
by englneors of the coraiianv and had
been oecepted aa complete In every de
lall by ofllclala of the concern.-*He said
that it wouid be a matter of only a short
tlmo, probably not-over a month, beforo
4>stimate3 for tho construction of the
bridgo nre advertised for, after whlc.i
tho work wlll bo immodintely undertaken.
President Sltterding sald that the re?
port that tho Virginla Passenger and
Power Company had abandoned the Idea
of erectlng a now brldge and strength
' cnlng tho present Freo Bridgo ln order
to accommodato tho heavy Petersburg
cars. was unfounded.
When lt la underatood that the com?
pany ls at preaent paying for the prlvi
logo of crossing the Free Bridgo 51,500
per annum lt riiay bo readlly seon ;it
wouid be an unwiao movo on thelr part
to strengthen the' structure at tlicjr own
cost. after whlch they wouid be reriuired
to glvo up an addltlonal aum for the privi
lego of brlnglng tho Peterabtlrg cara
over tho rivcr.
"It haa never been contemplated." sald
Mr. ' Sltterding, "that the now brldge
wouid touch Johnson'a Islond. whlch wlll
evontually bo abandoned by tho com?
pany and sold to oututders. Tho plana
proposed will touch Brown'a Island, nnd
tho bridgo will. when It ls completed,
make it possiblo to bring tho cars up
Seventh Street. aa' at presont The ter
minal of tho Petersburg cars wlll bo at
Broad and Seventh Streets. this clty."
BRIDGE ONLY FOR CARS.
Asked If the now plans for tho bridgo
contemplated tho accommodatlon of
wagons or foot passcngers. Presldont
Slttorillng sald that no provislon wouid
bo mado for clthor. The structure will
ho orected with the solo idea ln vlow of
uso by trolley cara and no prlvato con
v/iyancos or pedestrtauB wlll bo allowed
to go upon tho brldge.
The rcasons of tho company for thls
is plain. At present on tho Free Bridgo
tho street car trafilc ls Interferod with
by prlvato conveyances and foot passen
gcrs. The motormen aro compelled to
uso extra caro In ordor to avold acci
donts, ns a result of whlch much unnec
cssary time ls lost by tho cars ln golng
to and from Richmond and Manchestor,
Tho idoa in bringing tho cars from Pe?
tersburg to Richmond ls to glvo the trav?
ellng publlo bettor accommodatlon and
put the line on a compotlng basls with
tho steam rallroads. It is ubsolutely ncc
essar-y that the trlp from Petorsburg to
thls clty bo made aa qulckly ns tho trlp
is now mado to Manchestor, and in or?
der to do thls tho cara muat havo an
unobstructod track over tho brldge, such
as lt wouid now bo Imposslblo to acqulre.
A DOUBLE TRACK.
It Is tho schome of tho company to
mako tho new bridgo stitllolently commo
dloii8 tfl nccommodato a doublo track
and aullleiently strong to mulntain tho
hoavloat cara whlle movlng at a hlgh

Wlthln tho next year it ls etated that
the Paasongor and Powor Company wlll

tho property wlll bo for salo, Thla la tho

i Mr., Halsey mado an enrneat plea for
the passage of thls amendment. . ;
MR. BARK'SDALE'S REPLY.
The Senator from Lynehburg was re
plled to by Mr. Barksdale, who contended
that the amendment was slmply a make
shlft. It wouid bo cumbersome to the
blll, lt wouid aecomplish no good, and
wouid serve. to drivo capltal away from
the State. It wouid fool tho laboring
man and wouid not aecomplish that for
whlch It was contended lt was dealgned.
Mr. Halsey had said that tho white
chlldren were belng worked In factoriea
whlle the negro chlldren were golng to
the free achoola. Thls caused Mr. Barks
dalo to grow hot in the collar when he
came to atiswer thl8 polrrt. He denled
the statement. and held up before the
Lynchburg Senator the report of the
Superlntendcnt of Publlc Instructlon,
whlch contalned statlstics to prove that
three tlmea as many , white as colored
uhildren attend the publlc schools.
Mr. Barksdale rialng to heighta of elo

Lyle, who dld not mlnce words. Be de
clared that he and Mr. Barksdale were
worklng upon a blll to protect tho chll?
dren long before some who are now pos
Ing as champlons of thls cause had ever
taken thelr flrst otep, in the matter. He
declared that clrcular lotters had beon
sent throughout the State to labor or
ganlzatlona urglng them to support tho
Cabell blll. Tho Roanoke labor organi
zatlona had endorsod tho Lylo blll, but
friends of tho Cabell measuro had urged,
wlthout success, that thi3 action bo re
Mr. Halsey, ln reply, sald that lf any
such clrculars were sent out lt was wlth?
out. hls knowledge, In tho face of on
ovorwhelmlng majorlty agalnst him. Mr.
Halsoy argued well .for hla amendment
and ho dled gnmo.
The Halsey amendment was defeated by
a voto of 3 ayos to 11 noes.
Tho Lylo blll was then ordered to its
engrossmont wlthout a dlssentlng vote.
Mr. Hobbs' bloodhound blll was discuss
