While the presidents of both branch' s |
ale averse to discussing the matter,
it Is reporte-.. ,n political circles that |
stionpr pressure is being brought on i
the two presidents to change the per-]
sonnel of the new Street < 'ommlttee.!
The old committee had one member

The new committee is to have nln? ,
members, giving place for one more ]
member from the lower branch, and
it is conc-.-ded that the place will go,
to a member from .-outii Richmond.
It win be leealled that the BUaet
Committee recently reported adversely i
the proposed light and power fran?
chise sought by the Richmond and
Henrico Rallwav Company on the
?ground that In the aphaton of the com?
mittee there ws? no demand or need
for competition in the . ommunity:
while the service was adequate and
the rates lower than In most cities:,
because the proposed f.-anrhise was ina- j
properly and vaguely drawn, and be-1
cause the offer of $!o for the use
of all the streets and alleys in the
city was held to ne totally InaaVfluate.
The Council, over the protest of the
Committee on Streets awarded the
franchise to the Richmond and Hen?
rico Company at its bid of $1?
Has *upcr?Isory Powers.
I'nder the terms of the franc.Use
which it proposed, and for which it
earnestly contended, the Richmond and
Henrico Company must, within a spe?
cified time tile. an initial route w'.tu
the Committee on Streets, and thai"
committee may enlarge oi diminish
such route. It was the current belief,
and was openly charged darlnir the
franchise controversy, that the Rich?
mond and Henrico Company only de?
sired a light and peterer franchise to
sell sin-plus current from ?-treet
railway power house; that !t had no
intention of extending its lines Into
residential sections at present: and
would only seek t<> re.,, h at the outset
the cream of th* Ml 11 tot*.
Now. according to the report cur?

though as the presidents of the two
branches decline to dismiss the matter.
It cannot be stated what success these
efforts have rrc't with.
