Robert Cline, superintendent of con struction of the Central Union Tele phone Company, in an interview last evening, stated why his company would refuse to accept a contract which contained a rate clause. I am anxious that the public will not think that my action before the council committee and the board of public works this afternoon was arbi trary. The Central Union Telephone Company has never accepted a fran chise or a contract that contained a rate clause and the company will not make an exception to this rule in the case ot the City of Richmond," said Mr. Cline. "The contract we submit ted to this city was fair in every par ticular, but Mr. Gardner saw fit to strike out the clause concerning rates that we had embodied in the contract and substitute one that set a maxi mum rate. "You can state," continued Mr. Cline, "that the amended contract sub mitted to us yesterday by Mr. Gard ner will never be accepted. If the board of public works signs the origi nal contract, signed by the president of our company, which was offered to them, we will build underground. This contract must be signed within the next thirty days, for at the end of that period we will start to rebuild our lines overhead, as we have a right to do under the franchise which we now operate. We intebd to spend $150,000 in Richmond and the contract we have offered the board of public works, asks nothing of the city, but the right to spend this amount of money in Richmond. We offered the same contract to the board of public works at Muncie last Monday and they promptly signed it and the city council ratified It that same evening, as they were only too glad of the op portunity of getting some of the. wires underground." Mr. Cline stated that he thought that the Home Telephone Company had something to do with the stand taken by the city officials. "I think the Home Telephone people used their influence to have the contract we submitted, turned down. Some one who was "next" must have told mo city omciais mat our company never accepted contracts which con talned rate clauses," said Mr. Cline "I suppose the Home Telephone peo ple thought that if we were allowed to build our lines underground that it would spoil their chance of selling out to the Central Union. I can as sure them that it will net. Only last week we bought out r independent line in Shelbyville under cxaitly the same conditions." The clause in the original contract to which Mr. Gardner objeefbd, stated that the people of Richmonf would be furnished telephones at rates preva lent in other cities of and under the same condi isted here. This was ence made to rates. J ft? BRIGADIER GENERAL FREDERICK FUNST0N AND MRS.

Howes, who was injured on the night of February 24, in an accident at the Pennsylvania Rail way crossing on North 13th street, has brought suit through his attor neys, Robbins & Starr, against the P. C. C. & St. L. Ry. Company for $5,000 damages. At the time of the accident, Howes was a member of Hose Company No. 1. In the complaint 'Howes alleges that the fire department was making a fast night run to a fire in the north part of town, between Fourteenth and 15th streets. At the Thirteenth street crossing the wagon on which Howes was riding narrowly averted a collision with a switch engine, which was backing down the yards. In the sharp turning of the wagon, Howes was thrown off and sustained vari ous injuries. Howes says that the engine gave no warning and that it was running at the rate of about 15 miles an hour. He also cays that there was no flag man stationed at the crossing to warn the driver of the approach of the engine. The other members of the Hose company wno were injured in tnis same accident, have settled with the claim department.

He should be called the Savior of San Francisco, and I predict that before long, there will be a monument erect ed in the new San Francisco that will justly keen alive the . story of his deeds. The above statement was made yesterday by C. E. Brown, traveling man, who was in Richmond and was telling over again his his tale of how he escaped from the stricken city of San Francisco, when the people were mad with fright, fol lowing the earthquake. Brown stated that without Fun ston's direction, the city would have been in worse chaos than can be im agined and many more lives would have been lost. He said that the peo ple of San Francisco appreciate the work of Funston and will remember him in the rebuilding of their city. ART OF KEEPING COOL. Sensible ScKKestionn to Fellow Dnr Ing the Comlns Sn miner. When the hot summer days are upon us and it is impossible to change our environment the best help toward keep ing cool Is to learn to adapt ourselves to it. But with all of us habit is so strong that few of us think of adapta tion, and as a consequence we suffer from a way of living which is suited only to the cold winter months. The oultivatlon of peace of mind is the first requisite. A cool bath taken on rising is the best tonic to prepare one for the day's labor and exposure. A tepid, cool bath or a short hot bath may be taken in the evening, and if greatly fatigued it Is one of the most effective means of bringing refreshing sleep. Another necessity to keeping cool is not only in the exercise of body, but in thematter of diet as well. All bodily heat arises from the oxidation or burning of the food we eat. So when the temperature rises tho body needs less fuel. A warm weather breakfast should be a very light meal. As four-fifths of our food is used for fuel It Is easily seen that in summer we need only a small quantity to sup ply vitality for bodily and mental work. The ideal breakfast would be whole wheat bread or zwieback, with some wholesome ripe fruit, such as strawberries, plums, melons or apples. By giving ourselves the. benefit of our store of common sense many of us would go forth to the trials of a day in the heat prepared for it by a diet conducive to health. How many a man prepares for such a day with a breakfast made np of griddlecakes, soda biscuit, fried eggs and bacon, sau sages, Worcestershire sauce and strong coffee! By noon he feels the heat to such an extent that he feels compelled to drink large quantities of Ice water, beer or other cooling beverages. Con trast the discomforts of such a one In the temperate zone with a cooly work ing bareheaded in the direct rays of the sun In a climate 20 degrees hotter. The cooly is not uncomfortable because he has adapted his diet to his environ ment. Any man who excites his heart and irritates his nerves by a diet of flesh foods must expect to need all sorts of artificial means to make his life bearable in the hot weather. New i Xork Herald.
