Physicians say Mlnltree's escape
from deatlt is mlraculous, and his
wounds are such that his deulh now,
although he ls ahio to go about the
streets, will not be a surprl.se. 'Mltii

The matter did not get to a voto un

Tho small Council chamber was ftllc
to tho polnt of auft'ocatlon with cltl

thc boisterous approval of tbe specti
tora was riuleted. Time after tlrr
ciue?tions were put to members of ti*
Consolidation Commlttee. GeneraH
tho replies were so clear and plai
that tiie eheorlng broke out anew.
The chango madc in tlie orlginal o
dinanco by the Conference Commltt
of tlie Rlchmond Clty Council waa pr.
sented by Chalrman Brown as a
amendment. and carrled by the san

a weli-known fact that tho an

Indeed, It Is of so much Importanco

a traln would liavo to l<>ave P-lchniond
about 5:30 ln the mornltig, antl lt ls

in that it would cnable Richmond busi?

or at least by nlght. As Ujfi trains
now run. it Is dlfllctilt to "transmt
much business from IticJiniOnd ln one
day. a night stop-over belng ln most
cases absolutely necessary.
A subcommlttee was appointed to
