MANCHESTER HAS ALL TOGAIN Leading Men Address Enthusias tic Mass-Meeting on Bc half of Union. Although called upon freely to ex? press their vlews, no cltlzon advanced any argument ii\. answer to tlie re marks madc hy" the many spoak'cru last night at tho meeting of the con solidationists in tho Manchester court housc under the auspices of tho Scc? ond and Thlrd Wards. Tho meeting was dlgnlflcd ln the extreme, und the largo crowd whlch tllled tho court? house- to Its capaclty, seemed thorough? ly In accord wlth every thought ex pressed. Although the speakers were at tiinos frooly appiauded, there wari no vlolont outburst ngtt.ln.st thoso with opposite opinlon. Tho spcakors, with? out exceptlon, sought to be falr and had on hand printed and sworn sta? tlsttcs to back thelr asajprtlons. Of the many speakers, W. H. Owens took tho rostrum llrst. lle went into the dotalls of tlie proceedings of the Consolidation Commlttee from start to finish. He declared that the smaller clty oporatod under a great loss, as had been stated, and that advantages of ns largo a clty as Rlchmond wero worth conslderlng. He nsscrtod that the Consolidation Committeo had al? ways acted ln tho be.?t Interests of the clty. Ho pointed out tho great advantages of the proposed bridge, thc crowding of tho schools in thls clty. and gave .many reasons why consoli? dation would relleve conditlons and bring benefit-. Ilellevci. People IVnnt 11. C. S. Wells, the next speaker, _aid the consolidation questlon was a groat one. ,'T have no fear of results," he sald. Not 35 per cent. of tbe peoplo's voto wlll bo against annexatlon. "Some people look at consolidation from the personal standpoint?tho greatest good to tho greatest number Is the wav to look nt it." B. A. Glll, a member of the Board of Aldernien from the Second Ward. was next heard. Mr. Glll had wlth hlm the llnanclal statem.nts of Rlchmond and Manchester, and ho Invltcd cltl y.ens opposed to annexatlon to ston forward and follow, and If need he. correct, hls ntatemonts. No one vol unteered, however. "Although the budget has Increased. only Sr.,000 has been set aslde for streets," lio sald. "The other $5,000 had been used in other ways. Tbe bonded indobtedness of Mnneliystcr ls $",18,000, in addltion to 515,000 for the Hlgh School." He next presented a copy of the Richmond flgures ln comparison, show? ing that she is able to borrow $2,130, 870.95, whlle Manchester now owes 5S0.702.96 more than she owns. Richmond. he said, spent on streets, not including sidewalks and alleys, $.169,5(53.63 ln 1909, accordlnt, to Special Accountant George S. Crenshaw.s state- ' ment. From othor statlstic.t ho sought to show thnt Richmond was spendlng vast sums of money for* municipal Im? provement. whereas Manchester was. unable to do even a proportionate! part. Chalrman Brown Sprnkn. L. R. Brown, chalrman of tho Con? solidation Committee, followed Mr. Glll and opened hls address by saylng he would not deal ln fallacion, but was present to give facts. lle said thnt Manchester received a good bargnin tn the 30 per cent. proposltlon of the gross revenuc, slnce it would yield hor $36,000 a yenr for street improve? ments and nviother large amount for lights and other ltcms. He asserted that Rlchmond had made a provislon. for the rotoutlon of the court. He cx- i plalned why the school trtisteos had boen abolished, and said tliat where Richmond had spent $223,000' for tho| malnteuance of its public achools, his city/had expended but a small sum. be? causo it had no more. That Rlchmond was "totlng falr" and would livo up to Its promisi-s was his convictlon. lle sald that more than a few would be benefited. Tho sntorios of police ofll cers, tbo judge, janitors and others, would be increased. . . ' John P. Branch was opposed to an-1 nexation, lm asserted, slmply because Manchester ran on such n. cheap scalc and could glve Rlchmond nothing in return. Ilo. refuted the accusatlon that tho Manchester Consolidation Commlttee dld not look after Manches? ter':- interests, and declared that lt not only held lts own, but had made the Rlchmond commlttee back down. That Rlchmond's money was represented ln Manehester's plants to-day and that 95 per cent. of her houses would be bullt by Rlchmond eapltallsts he. af ilrmed as true. . _ "It ls a woll-known fact." he sald, "that tho poople opposed to annexa? tlon are opposed to it on any terms. Mr. Toney Jn Fnvor. D. L Toney, Manche3tov's representa? tlve in tho Leglslature, rosponde.d to a call for. a fow words. "I have noth? ing against thoso gentlemon opposed to annexatlon," ho sald, "but after view ing flgures I have conoluded it to be the best thing for tho peoplo of Man? chester to consolldato, with tho greater clty. I enst my votfc wlth you, and all my tles are here, atid will always remaln here. _, "I say with all .Incerlty I cannot see how any reasonable man can pos slbly bo opposed to annexatlon." Although havine- boen thrown wlth Rlchmond poople often, Mr. Toney stat? ed that he had yet to see a* narrow mlnded business or polltical man. "Too many of us aro too narrow to seo.- for better* quarters. I belleve nothing wlll help our peoplo more than cbnsolidatton," he concludod. Not a Flolnhcd Clty. Carter C. Jones, who spoke next, said that the motto of Manchester under its lncorpbratlon was, "Hasten slowly. mothor," and consequent ly she had been laboring under lt ever sinco. Ho alleged Manchestor . had never taken advantage of its oppor? tunity, nnd had oven run tho present Rlchmond Codar Works away. , "Are wo a tlnlshcd clty? Or nre we ln tho same class as Richmond'.'I Everyhody knows Riwhinotul Is tho guardlan tingel of prosperlty In the South." .1. P. Jonae, the last speaker, said ho hnd heard tho argumonts of the "an. tis.'' but coiisidoi'ed them of no con soqueuce. "Richmond ls indoed tho queon clty of thc South, und we do ourselves hon? or to ge"t Into such company." Ho saw no reason whv Manchester should not annox, slnce sho wov-td get a nwv hridgo, school ? facllltlos imd would have everythlng* to galn and- nothing to loso.
