In his report to the Committee on Electricity last night, Consulting En? gineer Trattord, discussing tile erec- 1 tiou of pole lines for the municipal plant, asked instructions from the committee as to whether or not any discrimination should be made in hiring white or colored labor tor pul? ling up Hie poles, lie said his expe? rience iiad been that colored labor in this clsss of work rendered the must elHclent service for several reasons. Asked fur a recommendation, he stated that he preferred to leave the matter entirely to the committee. There was some discussion of the question, in which members of the committee were hoh-committal. Coun? cilman Lynch, who had some time be? fore relinquished the chair to Sub Chairman Ijoii l.cavy, bridged over the embarrassing situation by moving that the consulting engineer be allowed to advertise for bids on the pole lines, for which the members voted with avidity. There is no race legislation among the contractors! and such a| move relieves the committee of the responsibility. Other HiiHlueSa. The subcommittee appointed for the purpose of passing on sundry bids lor ihe planti made only one award?that lor the water wheel und governor, which went to S. .Morgan Smith & Company at $1,500.

The Virginia Hallway and Power v'ompany suggested the purchase of an electric vehicle for Ihe city lighting department, making some argument as to Its economy; Mr. Trafford favored '.he purchase of a self-propelled ve? hicle in his report. He reported, also, that there are now In operation !i|? fire lamps from tile city plant, and that nearly all the Virginia Railway and Power Company lights had been discont inued. Mr. Trafford called attention to the fad i bat the must arms he had bean authorized to purchase from tile Vir? ginia Railway and Power Company at is.50 each .were not worth that amount to the city, und said that he could plirchase the available material for Ii.50. About thirty of these have been used, so a resolution was passed limit? ing the old arms to thirty-five in num? ber, .and authorizing the engineer to purchase ornamental mast arms, such as are now In use in some parts of the city, to the number of ?.'00. at ?B each.

The warrant against Mrs. Hughes 1 was issued by Justice Crutchtield upon the testimony of Covert, who said he know everything I hat was going on in the house and knew that it was under police surveillance. As to this case the testimony of Covert was ex? cluded by general agreement, as all ' he could say was that he had seen i people congregate In the bouse and ] knew only by interference the pur? pose of their visits. When I'oliceinan Johnson went on tile s'.and lie was asked by Common? wealth's Attorney Mlnltree Koikes as to the general reputation of the house, lie replied that It was bad. very bud. Attorneys for the defense wanted him to he more speclllc. to give them names of people in the neighborhood who thought as he <lhl and to give names uf those who were in the habit of con? gregating in the Hughes house. They pounded him hard, attempting to dis? credit his evidence and to show that he was prejudiced. He turned on them suddenly. With holds C.lrlV A'umcH. ' 1 won't give you any names unles-j I am forced to do so." he said, bis lace reddening. "But I'll tell you this. Oirls came to me, and asked me for Cod's sake not to make iheni go to court. They told me they had done wrong and that they were going to do better. They seid If 1 brought them Into court 1 might as well send them to the dogs, und I'm not going to ex? pose them-now, if I can help It." "Why did they come to you?" ho was asked. '?Because they told me Mrs. Hughes had been after them to get out of the way; that I had their names." "I never expose persons trying to do better." Interposed Justice Crutch Held. "That has been ihy rule always, and 1 shall not disregard It now." Has Itnd Kepiitutlon. D'ctectlv'cj Klengel was also asked us to the general reputation of the wo? man. "I know the woman to be one of the most dangerous characters in town," he responded, and there was no shaking him. "She has a had repu? tation.'' Major Werner wes then put on by tlie prosecution. He said that com? plaints from wives and mothers had come to. hint In headquarters and that I'ollce Cniiimissionprs had also mado complaints. "She lias given us trouble In every house she has lived In," he concluded. * Justice Crutchfleld, after a short ar? gument by both sides, announced his verdict without delay. Acquitted of Stealing. Hardly less disgusting were the de. tails brought out In the trial on the charge of stealing S. A. Covert's ring, testified to have been the property of his wile, who was 111 in Mt. Clemens. Midi., while the husband Is alleged to have been dallying with Mrs. Hughes. He said that Mrs. Hughes took the ring from him; and that .when he tried to recover It she said she had lost It. Sh? testified that he gave her the ring. He rented a room In the house, and said he know what was going on Inside, ft was brought out In the evi? dence that he represented himself to be either a widower or unmarried.'11e denied that he had asked the woman to go to Florida with him. but admitted that he had given her $760 with which to purchase furniture for her house, expecting to get a deed of trust in return. The deed was not forthcom? ing. "I he charge of selling liquor was soon disposed of. the evidence falling sheirt eif the mark.

In order that Virginia may conduct the light on typhoid fever In the most effectual manner during the coming summer. Commissioner Williams has organized ills lighting force and an? nounces that every epidemic of typhoid fever In the State will be Investigated by his experts. If prompt notice of the outbreak Is reported. Dr. Allen w. Freeman, director of rural sanitation, will lie In Immediate charge of the typhoid work and will Investigate special epldomlcB of a gen? eral character. Ho will be assisted in water-borne epidemics by Richard Mcssr, the sanitary engineer of the de? portment, while Dr. R. K. Flannagan will at once begin a general sanitary Inspection of the small towns of the State, whore much of tho typhoid fever occurs. In addition the department expects to keep an expert employed In an Investigation of typhoid in rural districts. "Not every epidemic of typhoid fever Can-be stopped at once," said Health Commissioner Williams In making his announcement yesterday, "nut almost, all of them can be reduced and many can bo effectually stopped If prompt report Is madn and the Investi? gation is begun without delay. We have no law In the State which gives us an Immediate report of every sus? picious outhreak of typhoid fever, and ore forced to rely on the physicians nnd on strong public sentiment. We can do nothing more than state/ the facts to the people and urge them to inform the department of every epi? demic as Eoon as possible. Of course, we cannot investigate Individual cases, but we can and will study community outbreaks as soon as they are reported. It Is not too much to say that we may expect a notable reduction In the num. ber of typhoid cases in tho State If work on these epidemics can he start? ed early In their course. I cannot too strongly urge upon health officers, town authorities and the public fton etaly. to keep us advised of the typhoid situation In their locality. Without co-operation, the forces of the depart? ment cannot perform their best pub? lic service." PARTY WALL DISPUTE W hltlock l>1n?c Ohjoel? to Itrmnvnl of >lonttcrllo Hull. R.

Dr. Williams Says Richmond' Presents Most Signal Triumph in State. Public congratulations were tendered yesterday by the State Health Depart? ment to Chief Health Officer E. C. Levy, of this city, upon the fact that to-day, for the first time in its history, so far as the official records show, thero is not a single case of typhoid fever in Richmond. Following the announcement of this condition in Thc Times-Dispatch yes? terday. State Health Commissioner En nion C. Williams gave out thc follow? ing interview: "'Dr. Levy's achievement." he said, "may very properly be regarded as the most signal triumph of health work In the Slate. Our records and the. records of the old board of health dis? close nothing like It. This great vic? tory, for better health and Increased happiness has been gained as a result of long continued and exacting effort, und It is to be primarily attributed. I think, (o tho extension of the city's sewerage system and to the care taken in providing sanitary outbuildings In those parts of the city which have not been sewered. "In addition, the city's care In in? specting every case of typhoid as soon as it Is reported, and in Instructing thc family in the proper precautions, has undoubtedly prevented the ? spread of the disease. "What Richmond has achieved Is a. splendid Rd verllsement for the city, nnd should incite every city and town of Ihe Commonwealth to like efforts In extending Its sewers nnd watching every case of typhoid fever. Th0 city cannot, of course, hope to prevent the coming of persons to the city who will develop typhoid, but It has a splendid opportunity in establishing a new record in American public health."
