CANNOT TURN TOWN INTO LITTLE HEA VEN Discrimination Against Private Stables Won't Help, Says Richards. SMITH TO GET PERMIT Council Refuses to Stop Build ? ing Because of Popular Protest. Bs- a vote of 13 to 7 tho Common Councll last night refused to concur wlth the Board of Aldermen ln an ordinancc to prevent tho orectlou ln tha residentlal section of a stable where accommodutlons are provided for nore than four horses. The same question has been coming up contin nally. Councllman Cannon took the ground that lt was unfalr to leglslate igalnst cltlzens wlthout givlng the members an opportunlty to look into !he conditions. His motlon to commlt .vas adopted. When I. .J. Smith & Co.; general con iractors, npplied for a permit for a private stable- on Choffln Street, be? tween Randolph and Harrlson, prop ?rty owners Interpose,! objcctlon. Tho ordlnanco was passed by tho Board Monday night, to prevall until the auoption of the buildlng code. Buslness Intcri'?l?. Councllman Umlauf led the antl stable flght. Ha made four spceches. ?"ouncllman Richards, ln 'reply. said lhat it was unfalr to cliscrlmlnate slm ply because Mr. Umlauf was afrald the drlver3 would curse as they rodo along, or else fall into peaceful slumbers. '?This Idea of turning Richmond Into a little heaven." he added. "has gone too far. We must look out for tho busl? ness Interests." Mr. Cannon suggesteel that the 6r 3lnance Commlttee and the Board of 't-Tealth-should confer. "If they report that stables are a menace." he said, "T. for o^.-tyill, vote to wlpe out every stable ,,ln .Richmond." He said that a hearlng had .been denled to tho con? tractors. Mr. FerKUsson declared that they ivero spending Si.i.OOn a year for labor, and that thoy deserved fa|r treatment As a result of the pendlng of the or iinance to a commlttee>. Inspector Beck wlll be required to fssue a permit to the Smiths not later than to-morrow. There may be another flght slmllar to that of J. F. Ragland, especlally as *here is no law to prevent the bulidlng of a stable used for private- purposes. For Itcpral of Law. ?
