Payne Was Before (die Committee.
A live cent round trip fare from
Bast Hampton on the King stree;
line; a fare of 2\k cents for school
children, and books of 60 cent tickets
for the workingmen in Hampton were
the demands asked of the street rail?
way company by the special commit?
tee of the city council as the price
of temporarily abandoning the Lo?
cust street and conducting a reduced
schedule on the King street line.
The committee, which is com|>onea
of Messrs. H. R. Hooker. W*. 8. Hud
gin* and Thomas J. Ilaaklns. nut in
the directors room of the Merchants'
National Hank at 11 o'clock yester
- day morning, whon President William
J, Payne, General Manager W. W.i
8. Butler and Attorney Samuel Cor-,'
don Cummlng appeared before the (>
qotnmitt- e as the representative of.
the railway companies. [
t After a long conference the agree (i
m-nt was reached and il was decided :
that the railway authorities should
reduce their off r to writing In s let?
ter addressed to the committee, t
When the letter was rooeivt d the I
committee d elded to meet again to- ? i
morrow -night as the company desires (!
to sell the east end tick ts In books i
of tO each for 50 cents, while the)
committee Is going to contend that
the tickets shall b? placed on sale <
at 5 cents each. Ii
The id-a of getting a five cent i
round trip fare from Kast Hampton 1
Into the city ove r the King street!
line, was Introduced in the council,
by Councilman F. C. Re s, who used t
his strongest efforts in this dlree- <
Uon. Mr. Rees contends that th-'
round trip rate will prove of great
convenience and assistance to the
people living in the East Hampton ;
stet Ion. as the line is a short one i
and the round tickets will apply only
to passengers coming into Hampton
and not those getting transfers for'
Newport News or Old Point. ji
The city council will meet Wedntfs-,
day night, when the committee hopes
to have the entire trouble settled in I
such a form as will meet the approv?
al of all the parties to the controv?
ersy.

Dear airj: ?
Thin to confirm the understanding
arrlv. d at at our conference thia
morning, as follows:
In consideration of the consent of
the city council, of Hnmi>ton, to the
temporary suspension of the opera?
tion of cars over the Loenst street
line, on a regular schedule, and of
the change In the form t schedule
on the K'ng street line we agr-ed:
That this company will extend the
fare zone, now ending at the west
end of Hamilton bridge, to Normal
school, or flat, woods corner.
A reliable service of either twenty
(201. twenty-five (25), or thirty (30)

shall adopt, as to the hours of use.
place of sale and certificate of en?
rollment. The company will ext' n-l j
the game privilege to pupils attend-]
Ing regularly established private
schools, but reserves the right to|
withdraw this rate should it lie abun
ed, in the company's Judgment. In'
Che past many abuses of this lowj
rate have occurred and the company!
must be In position to regulate this
rate so that such abuses can be stop
p d. This privilege extended to th"
pupils attending private schools is
not to be Included in the resolutions
but the company will make an an
nouncemcnt of auch reduction after)
the approval by the council of this j
agrdtanont
As an experiment, the company
will, upon the approval of the city
council of the above agreement, and
nf the State Cor|?oraiion Commission,
of the promised reduction In rate, put
into < fleet, for a period of three (3)
months, a rate of two and one-halt
(2V4) cents, good between the in?
tersection of King and Queen stre ts.J
and the East Hampton bridge (and
the C. ft O. depot 1, by the sale of!

five for $123 jier bock. The pur-j
pose of this proposed reduction is an j
endeavor to secure additional patron-j
age for thia branch line which hasj
always been operated at a great loss.
If the results ar.- not satisfactory,
this reduced rate will be withdrawn. I
Persons desiring transfers from tain
branch to the main line must payj
the live (."() ctJit fare, as the red""
ed rate will not entitl them to these
transfers.
Yours very truly.
(Signed) J. W. PAYNE.
President.
This last paragraph, by telephone
authority of Mr. Payne, is modified
to the extent of providing for books
of ten coupon ticket* on the King
?tract line for 50 cents, instead of
hooks of twenty five coupon tickets
