WITHERBY IS STILL SECLUDED It 1$ Thought that Eastern Promoter Is in New York Awaiting DevelopementS. HE NOW HAS NEW PLAN BEFORE LEAVING CITY HE STAT ED THAT HE WOULD EDUCATE THE VOTERS INTO A DESIRE TO SELL LIGHT PLANT. E. E. Witherby, the representative of the Eastern syndicate who Is res ponsible for all the agitation that has nrisen over the question of selling the Municipal Light plant, still remains secluded but it is thought he is in New York planning new moves in his campaign for the proposed "grab" of the city plant. It is understood that Mr. Witherby Is following every move made by the Investigating committee, through the medium of the Richmond papers, and as soon as It Is announced that E. G. McMahnn, who is auditing the books of the city plant, Is ready to make his report to the investigating committee Mr. Witherby will again put in an ap pearance. Appreciates the Sentiment. Just what tactics Witherby will pur sue on his arrival rn Richmond is a matter of conjecture. Just before he left Richmond for New York Wither by was asked if he' appreciated the fact that the sentiment in Richmond was overwhelmingly in favor of re taining the plant. Mr. Witherby re plied that no one better realized this fact than he did. He was asked what he intended to do to overcome this gi gantic obstacle which stood In hi3 path.4 "I shall begin a campaign of education of the voters" was Wither by'a prompt answer "and I shall need several clever newspaper men who are handy with their pencils" he add ed .with a smile. The details of this "campaign of education" "are still ob scure. ', E. G. McMahan was asked yesterday when he would be ready to make his -report on the condition of the Muni cipal plant, and he stated that it might be ready by the last of this week, or the first or next. He would furnish no statement as . to the re sults of his investigation so far. We have money tr loan on real es tate security Fairi-able' terms. Dlck ; Inson Trust jrfpany.

C. C. & L. ROAD DEFENDANT PLAINTIFF ALLEGES THAT THE TIES WERE ROTTEN AND THE TRACK DEFECTIVE BYRAM ROBBINS HIS ATTORNEY. Alleging that the rotten ties and de fective track on the C, C. & L. Rail road caused the wreck of the Red Men's special on the morning of April 4. when the local lodge members re turned from a meeting at Rushville, William H. Bennett, South Eleventh street, yesterday filed suit in the Wayne Circuit court for damages to the amount of $20,000. Byram C. Robbiris is his attorney. Mr. Bennett was perhaps the most seriously injured of all the victims of the accident, he claiming that the lig aments of his neck and back were sprained and bruised, that he suffered severe internal injuries, that his spine was wreched and that the coccyx bone was fractured. He is still confined to his bed and will probably not be out Cor some time. In the complaint, Mr. Bennett alleg es that the wreck was caused by the company's negligence in not providing new ties at the point where the wreck occurred, after it was known that the ties then in use were old and rotten. He also claims that the railroad com- FRANCISCO'S FAMOUS CITY HALL pany contracted to carry him safely from Rushville to the Richmond sta tion, and this it failed to do. In the trial, Attorney Byram Rob bins will oppose his father, John F. Robbins, who will act as attorney for the C, C. & L., he being a member of the firm of Robbins & Starr, who are the local representatives of the legal department of that road. This is the first case in which the son has been on the side opposite the fther, and lawyers await the outcome with interest. To Play Miami Military.

The order issued two weeks ago by the operating department of the Penn sylvania Lines, whereby many of the car shops were ordered to work short er hours, was not destined to be in force long, as a second order has been issued which puts the forces back on full time again. When the coal strike was announc ed, it was thought that fewer men would be needed in the car shops but it is found that trains are being oper ated as usual and the force of men in each shop must work full time In orderfo '"' liav rcaWiaM engines in good repair. Beginning next Tuesday, May 1, the car shops that were recently reduced to 40 hours a week will be raised agin to 55 hours, or five days of ten hours each, and Saturday a half day of five hours. This will affect many men all over the system as under the old order they worked but four days in the week. House Narrowly Escaped.
