indications point to a strong probability
that the- deal will so through, It may. be
completed and tSie papers signed at this
Ume. However this may be, the doal=is
on: the negotiations have moved slowly

if not already consummated, they have
Cached a point which makes it a strong
that the public, -will be auttoru
t'-ivolv advised at-an early date thay
-I- Fisher and his New York associates
vave stepped l down and out, and that the :
Bvcreit Moore syndicate of Cleyelatid t O-,
is in the saddle. _
'some. three months ago or more Mr.
Fisfcer became desirous, it was thought,
or securing a controlling interest- in the
line in process of construction
between Richmond and Petersburg. He
controlled the Passenger and Power Com
pany in Richmond, and all ahe lines. in
Petersburg. Mr. Fisher went, over tho
Petersburg line more than once, and set
coin" a series- of shrewd moves in finan
cial diplomacy which, might; well have
checkmated a weaker adversary than the
on* 1 he was up against.
VERY STRONG BACKING. .
On the other hand,' Mr.. Will Christy,
- ( -presenting the Everett Moore syndicate,
-f Cleveland, 0., which owns and operates
1.500 miles of electric road, in this coun
ty-more than any other one. corpora
;ion-and which numbers among its larger
«<oekholders' such names as. that- ot
Senator Marcus A. .Hanna, became inter
ested in Richmond and Petersburg as the
terminal points of his new; inter r urban
3:ne Since February last Mr. Christy s
visits to Richmond have been more
frequent than any interest in " the con
struction of the Petersburg line would
seem- to justify. This work had been
placed in excellent hands. Mr.. Christy s
purpose has been to make a close study
of the situation in Richmond and Peters
burg. From conversations with a_ repre
sentative of the Dispatch it is evident
{hat Mr. Christy has been RTeatly Phased,
with what he has seen of Richmond. Re
l^,,g _ w .. T . a Ci-velarsd he has interested hig,.
Relates in>e city. --Thfe result" has
been that <*very move made by Mr. l'isn
? r to secure control of the Richmond and
"ctersburs line has been met by a count
er move on the part of the Cleveland
neoSe to get hold of the street. railway
properties in Richmond and
l[has been a battle of giants The,
proud boast of the Cleveland capitalists
■5 f Sat °, they have built 1.500 miles oi
road, that {hey have "ever'.sqld'a^ni^
It it. and that they are now operatn
*c whole of it. If : Mr,..P«^ -Sj Hhe
reeded in getting from thenv .«».e_lin?
hey were constructing. it. ~. -\iouia
have been the first loss of this charn^er
The "problems which confronted^, the
n^land people were Peculiarly difficult
.solution. Mr. Fisher controlled ;_the
terminal facilities at both ends. His lines,
fom Manchester crossed the .only two
briSeS in existence. His franchises cov
«r.xfihe streets and approaches" to- tnt*e ;
b-i'dff"«=- To add to the difficulty of the
Sftion; neither, of the bridges was
strong enough to bring, the large cars of
ifce inter-urban line over safety. -,-
It looked like Mr. Fisher was. master
?i. the situation. But." the- Cleveland' peo
j.le had " not come to Virginia for their
acalth They were pleased with .what
they «aw They : wanted to stay. They.
■bditvca they could build, up in and
around Richmond and Petersburg a pro-
Stable system of city and suburban lines
like those they, havjfe- constructed in: and
s'rnund Cleveland,- Cincinnati, Columbus,
Toledo, and a. dozen other Ohio towns
»nd cities.
The battle has been a battle, royal.
Every method and - artifice known to
financial warfare has been brought into
play. Every move; in the local situation
has been" watched and fought; : over- by
Messrs. William . L.: Royall and A. B.
Gulgon, the representatives of the: rival
Jntrests, as though the fate of -empires
wr-re trembling in the -balance.;. ■• ■■;-,.■
The end has cornel; There is "reason to
believe that the days of Mr. Fisher's, rule ;
are numbered. / ; The deal, if it has come
or is coming, will ;bev an. absolute nnd
thorough-going sell out. Mr. Fisher, will
step down and out. and.the. new street,
railway magnate will be Mr. TV"ill*Chr:sty,
ot Cleveland, a . yery .pleasant gentle
man, who knows more than: a few things
about electric lines and their operation:

that -many farmers'- -worked hard all::day;
yesterday and .in some;, cases ."the .night
before, stripping tobacco -to
bringing ; it to .'market. .Such', warm, "damp;
weather", is. necessary ..for; -the) •proper,

to hay-making. With many farmers] to-;
baccbi is. the great money crop, {arid owing;
to ;: the ; : lack of ; seasons f ewj haveV-had
chance .to realize on their : tobacco crops, :■
ajid'now ' that "'Christmas :is 5 so ; riear at

vert some : of .the . tobacco rinto money.-
The high^prices "prevailing since ; the ; sea
