[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Charlottesvllle, Va., June 19.?The
following University of Vlrgln'a stu?
dents have gone to Southern Kansas,
?where they have .been engaged to
work in the wheat fields during the
summer months: Marshall Gravatt, of
Port Roya.1; Harry Howard Varnor,
of "Warrenton; Plchegru Woolfolk, of
Richmond; David McComas French,

TO THE PEOPLE OF RICHMOND would be the only possible result of grant?
ing an electric; light and power franchise to the Richmond and Hcnrico Railway
"Why so?" do you ask.
Because the people of Richmond would HAVE TO PAY for two costly
generating plants anrl distribution systems, where one plant and system is
amply sufficient to supply all the needs of the whole community for electric
light and power.
Because the people of Richmond would HAVE TO PAY for a POORER
SERVICE a HIGHER PRICE than they now pay for a first-class service.
Because competition in electric service always and incvitablv leads to an
IMPAIRED SERVICE AND A HIGHER PRICE FOR THAT SERVICE.
Because TWO generating plants and TWO distribution systems cannot
possibly perform the same service for the same territory as economically as
ONE plant and system?this is self-evident even to an ordinarily intelligent
Because the Richmond and Hcnrico Railway Company DOES NOT AND
CANNOT offer anv better service than is now provided in Richmond; and.
in fact, DOES NOT OFFER ANYWHERE NEAR SO GOOD, EXTENSIVE
AND INCLUSIVE A SERVICE as is now provided. What it seeks to do is
to build a system limited to the heart of the city, to gobble up the "cream"
of the light and power business from the stores, shops, factories, without going
out into the residence sections at all.
Because the Richmond and Henrico Railwav Companv DOES NOT OFFER
ANY LOWER PRICE FOR ANY KIND OF SERVICE. That company
fought most strenuously against any provision in its proposed franchise requir?
ing lower rates than those now paid in Richmond.
Because any competition it will or can offer will only lessen the ability of
the present company to extend its lines or reduce its rates.
Because, in short, the people of Richmond without gaining anv benefit
whatever, would HAVE TO PAY THE WHOLE COST OF BEING EX?
PLOITED?MADE FOOLS OF, in other words?by a concern whose only
appeal is an appeal to sentimentality to levy a TAX ON ALL THE PEOPLE
to help it out of the hole of its own digging, enhance the nuisance value of its
property, and enable it to sell out at a higher price.
Do YOU see any REASON why such an INJUSTICE TO THE PEOPLE
OF RICHMOND should be perpetrated? Why not talk it over with your
friends in the City Council? And why not do that AT ONCE??since if a
franchise is once granted it cannot be revoked or altered, but becomes a con?
tract binding on the city for many years to come.
