vice In Hampton has not been Im?
proved since the lucreastd rates went
into effect nearly a year ago, the
hoard of directors or the Elizabeth
city Ccnnty ftetall Merchants" Asso?
ciation last night decided to present
formal complaint to Mr. W. T. Qaatif,
the president of the Southern Hell
Telphcne and Telegraph Company.
The business men have cnniplaim-o
that 'phones are allowed to remain
cut of order for au unnecessary length
of time and that the service is noi
up to the standard maintained when
rates were $36 inatcr.1 of $?.
The directors Instructed President
Hunter R Booker to tske up the mat?
ter of Improving the service here with
the head officials and to call Mr. tien
try"a attention to the promise he made
ihe merchants to give them improved
service in Hampton and Phoebus v.1
between this city and Newport Newj
when Mr. (Icntry was here advocating
the Increased rates.
Want a Through Car.
Another resolution was pass'd t<y

Compaq to operate a through car from

Messrs. Nelson 8. (Iroonie David
.lolinsoi). T. II. Parrauiore and Harr>
IR. Houston went to sVeWMWC ('".!
I house yeatt rday and couferred wl.lt
[tne Accomac committee. The commit?
tee expressed a determination to fore.'
the county here to permit the candi?
date to be voted for in both counties,
j Instead of in Elizabeth City (inly as
has heretofoff? been the custom. The
gnlttli men from Elizabeth City rounty
emphullcully d* clim-d to ngice to such
a proposition and gave tbe Acromac
{ committee to understand that this
(county will appeal from any such pro?
position. The ilnmpton men left Ac
'comae with the und? rstaiidlng thai
the fight would he made before the
State Dessocratic committee,
Probably Changed His Mind.
When the delegation from lure
? reached Taelcy, the station seven
j miles from AeonMM Coitrthouse, en
the trip back home, a long-distance
telephone call was awaiting Secretary
Nelson S. Qrooaae. The message was
from the committee at Actiniae Court
house. Mr. QrOOUM was asked wheth?
er the -Elizabeth City county comtu.t
tie would send a subcommittee to
Cape Charles next Priilay to meet a
siinllur committee from Accomac. It
was said that the Accomac sub com
m.ttee would have imwer to Ml for
the entire committee and that the
dispute possibly could be arranged in
? an amicable way. Colonel (iooiue in?
formed his interviewer that the pro?
position would Im' placed before the
1 local committee.
I When the Hampton delegation
.reached home last night Colonel
Groonle found a telegram from th<
secretary of the Accomac County com
mlttee Announcing the ?asndlllinonl of
the Bub-etimniittee and aawMtttSg, the
Elizabeth City County COeasaittee to
be sure to send a committee to Capo
Charles Friday morning. The com?
mittee named from Acomac is com
j posed of Messrs J. Harry Rew. J. W.
I Mathews. J. S Pearsons. John S.
Waplrs and E. T. Powell.
Will Accept the Offer.
The Bllssbeth City County commit ?
tee met in the ofllce of County Treis
' urer David Johnson last night and
discussed the situation. The commit?
tee decided to send the sub-commit?
tee to Cape Charles Friday as reqvnst
Ied. It will be the local committee's
idea to settle the controversy In a
j satisfactory manner, without permit
! ting the Accomac^ committee to de
, prive Elizabeth City County of rep
presentation In the legislature
I There are several ways by which'
j the controversy can be mar>> more
I interesting. It Is suggest.d 'hat Kilz
? ahoth City county can gt> ahead, norn
ilnato a candidate and run him in the
. regular election. Accomac eountv
'could do the same thing It would th*n
be nee-asary for the State Demo.?atlc
j committee to decide wheth* r ?h- rim I
! nee of Accomac of thst of Elisabeth
(Clty would be entitled to th ? r r'lfl

Says Races Will Not Mix.
Arnolds argument Ms <hat tbe
races will not mix; that the negro
made a Mieiiian and never being made
an engineer, gets the liest run ?e
cause he becomes the senior of wlllti
firemen who cannot pass him because
he Is non promotuble; that to he
good engineer a II re man must kuo
the runs and he cannot know them
unless he gets a chance to fire
them.
The eomniision adjourned, after Ar
Hold com luded, until in a. in tumor
row, when the firemen srlll begin then
testimony. About I no subpoena?
were issued to night for service In this
and other towns on the OssWglg Kail

Chancellor Harrow was formally

presided. At the sll||l Sllllll of Mr
Herbert it was agreed that counsel
on both sides shall make an opening
statement of what tbaf expe<'t to
prove, the firemen being considered
the plaintiff
"We have decided." said Mr. Her?
bert, "that we will not enforce all the
technical rules of evidence, but we do
not want any irrellevant or hearsay
evidence.
"And we do not wan: any evidence
of what public opinion In the case
Is." said Counsel Cummlngs for Use
railroad. "We will fight Ihe intro
duction of such testimony."
"And we propose to otTer It," re?
torted Arnold, and the announcement
