to secure the right of way for its elec?

been idle in this matter, and tho names J
of many who were most I Itterly opposed
to the road are on the petition of the
business men. presented at tho Couno 1
meeting Monday night, asking that the
right ot way tie granted tho Stroot Kail
way Company. Some of the names on
the petition were on tho original
petition against the road.
It will be remembered that the pro?

reason tho belief that an electric car
line on so narrow a thoroughfare would
drive business to other par'.s of the city
and decrease the value of property.
s.veral of tho largest property
holders went, so far as to say that they
would contest the matter in the courts

company the privileges desired.
As reported in yesterday's TlHBS, peti?
