Attorneys Have Not Settled
SIREET MAY BE OPENED
Temporary Arrangements Proposed
Pending Decision In Court As To
Ownership of Property?Gate Locked
Last Tuesday on Advice of Counsel,
"I never told nnyodk that there was
a conference among the attorneys In.
the ease f- muddy. What I said was
that I had held a conference with ray
att-iiuoys, with the view to a settle?
ment of !he street dispute amicably.
Ciiy Attorney Ta?aferro was not pres?
ent and I did not say he was."?John

the attorneys in the matter of closing
Rowe street Saturday, and cfflcially
no agreement has been reached."?

"I held no conference with the at
ttrneys representing Mr. Rowe cn Sat?
urday and, In fact, there has not been
a conference up to this time."?City
Attorney William C. I* Taliaferro.
The above denials frcra the parties
;n'ercfted in the controversy between
John W. Rowe and the city of Hamp?
ton over the closing cf Rowe street
disposes of the report circulated yes?
terday afternoon to the effect that the
mtter had been adjusted at a confer?
ence between City Attorney Talia?
ferro and Judge Dvdley and Mr It
M. f^e't, who represent the Rowe and
Lake interests, Saturday afternoon.
Mr. Rowe said last night that he
had never s'ated that Mr. Tiliaferro
was present at the conference, nor
did lie intend to convey anv ? ich a
thing. "Tlfe conference I referred to
was the one I held Vlth the attorneys
representing Mr. Lake and myself."
Must Be Settled In Court.
Mr. Rowe wem on to say that the
controversy over the street Involves
the ownership of the land. "If the
city Is entitled to the property, we
want it to hsve it; bu; we contend it
is our property, and if wc are right
w e want the larW/1 ?
A temiKirary agreement will he
reached, but .Mrt Rowe admitted that
the final matter of'the disputed own?
ership must be settled in the court,
even to the extent of carrying the
case tr> the Supreme Court.
"Twenty years sgo Mr. Lake and
myself purchased the property in dis?
pute. We later cut into lets and then
offered the street to the city." Mr.
R ??? went on to gajf. "This offer
held good for ten years, and as the
city did not accept the street, we with,
drew the offer. About forr months
ago I put a wire fence across the
property, but the gate is on what I
contend to be my own private proj>
Put Lock On Last Week.
Mr Rowe. however, admit'ed that
while the fence was. put up four
months ago, it was only last week
that he put a lock on the gate, so

that no further passage could be raide
through the property. At that time
mi ch of the bridge material had al?
ready been put on the ground by go?
ing through the gate.
However, last week, acting upoaathe
advice of Judge Dudley, hl? attorney,
he locked the gate and thereby closed
the rfreet to traffic.
Jt:1ge Dudley said yesterday that
the otic st ion cf the ownership of the
'anj is one ihat must be determined
by toe t oitrt, and that the best way
to Save this "settled was by having
Mr. Rowe pi:re a lock on the gate,
which would mean tb/> closing of the
street. He advised this action in or?
der that the matter might be brought
to en issue.
As Contractor F. L Tennis did not
aUerapt to drive his carts over the
fefcr, a - w:s expected by the parties
Interested, it was tlien suggested that
the citv admit that the officers of the
oi'y had torn, awav the fence, and in
this way let Messrs. Rowe and Lake
brin? legal action in the Circuit Court,
as their rttorneys deem necessary.
This will likely be the temperarv ar
rar^cm<nt. Under the agreement the
city TobaMy will have the use of
;he street, pending the settlement in
the coints of the question of who
owns the land.
Judge Dudley left Richmond last
night to be present in the Court of
Appeals todav when argumrrtt in the
case Of Parlirjg vs.Cummlng will be
heard. On thit acccun' it probably
will be tomorrow or Wednesdav be?
fore the attorneys representing the
street dispute ran get together, and
until this conference has actually been
held it ennot even be said that a
temporary amicable *greemont will be
reached in the premises.
Useless Without Bridge.
Another feature in connection with
the trse of the closed street is that
there will be no occasion for anvone
to use lr vntil the bridge has been
completed, as it runs back to Willow
Springs creek, over which et present
' there is no passage wav. Cntil the
; city begin hauling material through
j the disputed lands to be used in the
i construe ion of the foot bridge, the
I city authorities had no reason for in?
vestigation whether or net Ibe tmr
oughfare was closed. At the same
time, Mr Rowe dnt not lock the pas?
sage way gate until be bad been ad?

the Sixth company are highly elited
over the shos-ing made by their

some fine rooting and hard fighting
between the teems is looked for?
During the game S' rgeant Darker,

quarters nursing the injuries.
