RECONSTI .UCTION OF LINES. Caplain Pizzini asked that permission he granted to th'e Richmond Passenger and Power Company to construct a traok on Twenty-first between Main and Franklin Streets. Mr. Pollock moved that the prlvllege be granted subject to the revocation of tho committee. The specilications in the map -of tlie proposed reconstruction of the lines were read' and .approved. The reconstruction of the lines will con slst of a double track on Twenty-first Street; a track from Hancock to Leigh to ebnnect with other lines. tb take up all flat rails on the Clay Street line from First to Twenty-ninth and to Boach. and 1o relay same and put down ?opnerete paving; to do. same on Twenty first to Twenty-ninth, and from Seventh land Franklin to Twenty-first StTeets; to rer-onstruct line dnwn Eighth Street ?to Main -so as to allow it to run as far as Twcnly-fourth Street: to discon tinue line on Fourteeiith Street, to the West ol Hancock Street to Bowe; to reconstruct lines from Eighth Street up 03road to l_aurt- and" around hy Holly? wood Cemetery- ' ', NEW CAR SHEDS.. Captain Pizzini stated last night that the new company would tcar down Its old car sheds at the reservoir and build *?ew ones in a more suitablc place. He also stated .that the newest and most modern cars would be ordered in order to give Richmond the best possible street enr service. New dynamos and regenorators, as well as all oither ap purtennnces necessary, will be ordered for the new lines. lt ls asserted by the -TYmpany that it is proposed to give this city the best street car service in the South. i NOT IN WIOB'S POSSESSION. Judsc Goodwyn Mit-taken as toTele grapli Offices. Much interest has been manifested iu the st-tement mule by Juuge Guodwyn, of Greensville county, to the effect that tht telegraph oflice at Emporia was in the ?posse-aioh of the mob last Fiiday and tf-ulurday. Careful Invcstigation has 'shown that Jtidge Goodwyn was in error ln this state? ment. At no .time. from the tima tht_re wrre *j__r-___t-s of gictiiroances ur.til after th.: lyticliing was over. and the mob dls persed, was the Postal Telegraph oflice ln Emporia iu -control of anybody but, the employes of the company, and at no time was there any interference. or threats of interference, on tlie part of any one in the transmission or reception of dispatches. The same can be said in reference to the "Western Union Tele g-raph oflice, which ls located in Belllield. about half a-)mile from Emporia. These*. tfacts were learned from those ?who were on the ground. nnd were thor? oughly familiar with the conditions in both offices. Judge Goodwyn's statement that a bogus telegram was sent to Stony Creek to Commonwealth's-Attorney W. M. Powell, requesting him to carry the prisoner, Cotton, to Emporia, when he himself* had sent one to Mr. Powell. a-equesting him to carry the prisoner to. Petersburg, has also been the subject of much comment. This message, which .-.ud-re Goodwin claims was a fraud. was sig-n.-d simply "Goodwyn." lt was trans jnltted over the Western Union lines, as the Postal lines have no ol-ice at Stony Creek. The message in question was sent from Bellfield'. and was delivered at that oflice. in charge of the regular operator, by Judge Goodwyn's brother. .No telegram was ever sent to Mr. Power, and signed by Judge Goodwyn, xequestlng that the prisoner, Cotton, bo wjit to Petersburg for safc-keeplng. Vhc question arlses. "Who doctored the telegram which Judge Goodwyn claims Sie sent, and which, if delivered, would Biavo saved the neck of Cotton and pre -ventcd the outrageous violation of the law at Emporia? lt will be rcmembcrcd that Judge Goodwyn claimed ln an inter? view which was published that a C'rlend of his who was opcrating with him car-* ried the dispatch to the "Western Union cfllce. Thero ls much speculation as to ??ho this Iriend was, and what toecame of the dispatch. as woll as to the nature of. ihe dispatch which was delivered by Judge Goodwyn's brother. orderiug the prisoner to Emporia. and who wrote that, and' wbo doctored it SOCiAL AND PERSONAL.
