Committee Avoids Issue?City
riant Operates 017 Arc
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
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 full commit
Ki. approved the recommendation,
other contracts will be awarded later, '
,as thi. subcommittee reports.
A communU.Ulon from Chief Health!
Olli tier Levy was read, in which ho ]
asked tiiat the municipal cut l ent bo
placed In tlie rooms of Hie Health Oe-1
partmeul. The letter stated that rates
of til* Virginia Railway and Power ]
Company hud been found to be exces?
sive, and that the service had been '
discontinued about a month ago. it was
referred to the consulting engineer,
ihe City Electrician and trio Building
Inspector to be Incoropratfcd In the
report on wiring the entire City Hall
from the new plant.
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

"Why did they come to you?" ho

Slate Health Officers Assigned
Work in Coming
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
"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."

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
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."
