(against ths practice which has obtained
to a large extent, both in that com?

The committee recommended an In?

The ordinance recommending an in?
crease In the maximum charge of hack
rates for funerals from $8.50 to $4, was
again recommended over protest of J
C. Page and C. A. Height, of the Rich?

stated that the liverymen's associa?
tion at present gives every undertaker
except himself a discount of 10 per
cent but charges him full price for
carriages for funerals.
The statement as to Increased cost

to $80 per month.
A subcommittee consisting of Messrs

named to prepare a plan for separation
of the duties of the Special Account?

One of the ?pootatora attracted to
tbe scone was J. Kandel. ? minin? man
from Chihuahua, Mexico.
Randal asked Part* If ft waa really

"Yes, and its ?0 par oent staff, too."
"1 don't believe It; you are bluff*,

Davis lifted the oloth cover off the
box, which had a glass front, and
drew out a stick of dynamite. Handel;
took it. bit off a piece and tasted it.1
miner-fashion. He knew what it was,!
out dissembled in order to gain time, i
"That's not dynamite," said be con?
temptuously; "somebody has cbonted
??Light it and see," said Davis.
Kandel lighted a piece of the
"giant" with a match. It burned i
briskly, and those who had hitherto
clung to the Joke idea made a hasty ,
Plan to Trap Him.
After Davis had held complete pos?
session of tbe station for nearly an
hear and a half, a plan was devised
by the deteotive? to trap him
While Sec rotary Snlvely carried on

tectlve Hoslck tiptoed from tbe outer ;
room, which was at Davis'? back, and
struck him on the head with a "black- '
Jack." The Infernal machine dropped.;
and Deteotive Brown, who was at Ho-j
sick's elbow, grabbed it.
Davis reached in his coat pocket,
and Hoslck hit him again, and he
tumbled to the floor unconscious.
The bottle of nltroglycerln and the
revolver were in Davis's inside coat
pocket, which he had reached. As

to-night he "guessed" the fust was'
too long was the reason there was
no explosion. He said he was born
in German/, was thirty-four years old
and had lived in this country fifteen
years. He admitted that Davis was
not his right name and finally declined
to talk about his past.
Davis said he stole the dynamite'

quarry near San Bernardino several
months ago. but be rave no definite

plates a single track la ths Bwaaaaata
Road from Broad street to Grove Ava?
nue. Parts af this road are bat twen?
ty-six feat wide, the Council having
rejected as excessive the allowance of
commissioners In the plan for opening
It to an eighty-foot boulevard. Some
of the streets proposed to be used. It
was stated, have not been graded of
dedicated to the city.
Bast Bad sUlasasssas
la the eastern part of the city the
Richmond and Hsarlco Railway Com?
pany petitioned for two extensions, the
first from Thirty-fifth and Marshall
Streets, diverting some of the cars
from the main line which now operate
to Fulton by construction of a double
track line out Thirty-fifth Street six
blooks to Dlckerson Street, the fran?
chise contemplating tho eventual ex?
tension of this line along Dlckerson
Street to Oak wood Cemetery as soon as
a ravine shall have been filled and the
street opened through- Tbe second
extension asked for proposes a re?
arrangement of the present Fulton
loop, making It run from Nicholson and
Urin Streets west of Nicholson
Street to Third Street. Fulton, thence
to Orleans, to Erin, and bad; to Louis*
iana Street; and also proposes a double
track extension along liUllnm Street
to Orleans, and thence on private pro?
perty by a single track into the coun?
ty, across Fulton Ulli to tho National
Property Owners stay Ohjssft.
Captain A. B. Oulgon. who appeared
for tbe Virginia Railway and Power
Company, told of the application ot
his company two years ago for a Una
out Hanovei or Stuart Avenues from
Robinson Street into tbe new section
west of the Boulevard, thus obviating
the necessity of crossing Monument
Avenue, out tbe plan was dropped be?
cause of the Opposition of property
owners on Hanover. Stuart and Park
W. Kirk Matthews and General Mana?
ger Sims Bailey appeared tor the Rich?
mond and Henrtco Company. Mr. Nel?
son, of the committee, said that the
objections met with in the West Knd
from property owners would not be
found in Futton. aa tbe people of Ful?
ton Hill and the National Cemetery
section wer? clamoring for relief.
Tne committee took no action beyond
requesting the engineers for the two
companies tu prepare drawings and
maps showing exactly what la pro?
posed to be constructed, together with
the existing Lines. These are to be
submitted to tnc City Engineer, who
will recommend to the committee any
changes in plan or routes be may see
I fit. Captain Ouigcn asked that the
1 new company furnish hia company
! with a plan showing what portions of
j the tracks of the old company it was
proposed to use In making extensions,
which was agreed to.
May t ostest Joint t Be of Track.
1( is believed that there will be
strung objections from property owners
to some ot the routes proposed in the
; West Bad, and that the Virginia Hall
