o'clock to consider the proposition t.>
increase the rale ?, fare between
Hampton and Xew|*?rl News by th
local sir-et railway company. Ily ,
the mayor's note ii will be seen thai [
Ik, loo. was officially informed "I [
ihe application made to th. SJtate Cor I
poration Commission for the author- (
ily to increase the far . !
Created No Surprise.
T!i. announcement that tin- (mn
pany had asked permission to in
cuase the tare came as ;i suiliri.ie
to many in Hampton, although it wasi
rM civej with considerable indiffer?
ence upon tin- pan of man.. o| Hie
business men and others whose work i
causes Ilu in to us. the street railway!
Blien. In fact, tin general opinion]
seems lo b. that if the railway coin
pany can show a good reason for
increasing the tare that ihe business
men here will noi oppo.se such a step.,
in is agreed that the company has a'
ri^lit to mak. a fair interest on the
investment and ii ihe present systm ,
is a losing one, many thitik that tu
increase of the fare from r- to 1"
ecu's is ii.it exorbitant. j,
See. ral m mbers ol the city coun
eil declared yesterday thai th- v ,'
could see no reason for official a< !
lion upon the pan of th.- city g"\
trnmeni ami tt is hardly likely tin
th. council will pass any severe rer.
editions protesting against th- pro j
posed incn ase
Will Not Attect Shipyard. i"
"Ii is a ease where the railway!
c mpany can be given a chance lo
show its reason for the increas-," l:-j
tbe way that a man prominent in
business circles disposed of the pro j
position ytster.lay If th- < mi
pany has strong financial reasons M
asking th? increase, it should
planted." :
The fact that the Increase will not
affect the large army of workers in
th. shipyard is one o: the reasons
wh\ the Hampton business m-n will
iikelj not lake any steps in tlx
flrln to prevent an increase. I nd? r
