Discrimination Against Private
Stables Won't Help, Says

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

ground that lt was unfalr to leglslate

lhat it was unfalr to cliscrlmlnate slm

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?

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

The budget for 100S wlll not be mado
up by the Flnance Commlttee until the

total was $2,337,680.0i;. and thls year lt
wlll run about tho same. In 1907 Coun?
cll made special approprlatlons aggro

was expended, however.
It was announced yesterday that an

rr.ombers from Lee, two from Monroe,
two from Madison, nnd so on. This
condltlon has naturally led to the
charge that thero is dlscrlmlnaUori
against certaln wards in the matter of
approprlatlons. Ahlorman ' Bllett, who
, wantod the rules changed so thnt a
member of the commlttee would bo
ineligible for membershlp on others,
declared that thls arrangement would
