THE FACTS
About the Proposed Light and Power Franchise
of the Richmond & Henrico Railway Co.
...The recent "Service Talks" of the Virginia Railway and Tower Company,
'in.so far as ihcy undertake to deal with the provisions of the proposed franchise,
are deliberate distortions and misrepresentation of facts.
r. It is charged that this ordinance was drawn by counsel for the Richmond
and Henrico Railway C ompany.
Every ordinance is so drawn as an original proposition, and this one was a
copy Of a franchise formerly granted by the City to certain Richmond gentlemen.
BUT the ordinance, as drawn, was amended in many particulars by the sub?
committee.
F.vcr'v amendment suggested by the City Attorney, for the protection of the
City's interest, was adopted.
h contains provisions for that purpose never before put into a franchise.
The City's interests arc safeguarded as in no other franchise ever granted.
The ordinance was then redrafted by the City Attorney under the direction
6f the subcommittee.
2, ' Service Talk-" persists in the deliberate misstatcmcnt that, under the
provisions of this ordinance, this Company may serve whom it pleases.
If the person who writes this i> honest, he has not read the ordinance.
It says: "The grantee hereof expressly assumes the duty and burden of selling
electric current for light and power to every inhabitant of the City of Richmond
applying for the same."
Can language be clearer?
The Virginia Railway and Power Company, on the other hand, is under no
obligation 16 sell to any one.
The City reserves the right to impose other conditions, etc., and to compel
"reasonable rates" on the part of this Company.
It has no power to regulate the rates of the Virginia Railway and Power Com*
pany.
3. The ordinai e, it came from the Street Committee, is not crudely drawn,
ab charged, and contains no inconsistencies.
The criticism pi the City Attorney, that has been quoted, was made against
Subsection 2 Of Section 8, and a substitute therfor was adopted, which the City At?
torney himself had prepared.
If you are Opposed to the grant of this franchise because you believe in the
principal of Monopoly, all right
But it you believe in Competition, there is no excuse for opposing this fran?
chise.
No Company could exist under a franchise that contained greater burdens,
dnd the City's interests arc fully protected.

Thoughtful Americans everywhere

must first of .-,'.1 have knowledge and

recent times has rxhibtted greater
.power to Instruct the public mind, to
win pifhlic confidence, to gain great
fundamental results against nread

The University of Virginia, i repeat,
may bo pardoned for feeling a sent'
ment of honeat Jubilation nt the out?
come of the national convention at
Baltimore. iler sons have filled high
places In the service of the world, but
not yet has mm of thorn tilled the great

A terrible skin trouble

Her nnnltnnd Feared ?be Worst. Rut
R.n.ll. Saved Her.
"I am satisfied that your B B.B saved
my wife from the grave." writes Mr.
V. C. Klrtry, of Tocooa; GO. "She no
doubt had a blood disease from tne way
tho doctors described ft. And B.B.B,
has certainly done the work for her."
Mrs. Klrby's case was unusu
allv severe. And J. Ii. Brooks
of Atlanta, Ga., states that tho
physicians were completely baffled
by it.
"Anyway, it was a very stubborn
case of skin trouble." he say.-. "But
after her taking B.B.B . I called to see
her personally, and sho was looking
fine!"
Nearly all skin-complaints come
from impure blood. And B. B, B.
is one of the most thorough blood
cleansers ever discovered. That is
why it has such a remarkable
effect on skin-troubles of every
kind. It cures them from the
inside. And that makes the cure
permanent and complete.
Tell your druggist you are
bound to give this splendid medi?
cine a fair trial. He will supply
you. For your own sake insist
on it.
