May Now be Had in Town at Best Stores Engineer Makes Estimates of Cost in View of Pending Bond Issue, SMOOTH FINISH TALKED OF Opinions Differ as to Wearing Qualities of Asphalt Block on Busy Streets. Anticipating favorable action by tho City Council on tho pending bond Issue of $l,o00.000 for streut improvements of a permanent character, the City Engineer's Department Is preparing preliminary estimates for Improving several of the main thoroughfares leading into the city, and for the re? paying of a large part of Broad StrooL Kor several years the Improvement of the roadbed of Broad Street had bcon under discussion. Two great sewers have boon provided for its drainage, and tho engineers believe that If the bonds arc issued, as pro? posed, that should be one of the Urst undertakings. If smooth-paved from curb to curb, the cost will be approximately $10,000 a block, of which the street car com? pany will pay about $3,000, paving between Its tracks and for two feet on either side. ? As to the character of tho paving, opinions differ. Complaint has been made of the slippery character of the asphalt Block for heavy teams, and at busy corners, such as Sixth and Grace Streets, where many reavlly loaded vehicles cross, that form of paving has shown moro rarld signs of wear than on purely residential streets. Mr. Colling suggests paving between the car tracks and for four %eet on each* side with cut granite or Belgian blocks, and the remainder with smooth asphalt block for lighter teams and motor cars. After all. it is pointed out, there arc im Richmond comparatively j few days of sleet and ice when horsos cannot gain a footing on smooth-paved streets. Whenever tho work Is none, tne Vir? ginia Railway and Power Company stands ready to relay Its tracks down the centre of tho street with new and heavier rails, on permanent cbncccte construction. This will give an opportunity for raising the tracks at some points, giv? ing a better arch or crown to the road? way, and securing better drainage, as at present the street is so flat that water stands after showers at Third, First and other points, tho car tracks being almost eievel with the gutter line at the south curb. The paving will probably start at the City Mall corner, at Tonth Street. and extend westwardly to Adams, a distance of wtelvc blocks, at an esti? mated cost of $125,000. If continued to Klha Station, the additional cost would | be from $60.000 to $70,000. Merchants doing business on Broad Street have petitioned that when the! street Is rebuilt, tho sidewalks, espe? cially on tho south side, be widened three or four feet, at the expense of the roadbed. This has not met with j fnvor In the Street Committee, as It Is I pointed out that were merchants to re-j move show cases, signs and all cn-i croachm'ents back to the property line the sidewalk would be ample and tho, street would have n much neater and I morn metropolitan appearance, the or? namental lighting would show to bet? tor advantage, and the show windows of the stores would he lC3s obstructed.

NO GREAT MYSTERY IN HAWKINS CASE Arrest May Follow Coroner's Inquest, but This Is Not Certain, EVIDENCE OF FLIMSIEST WND Prosecution Utterly Fails to Fasten Crime Where Sus- I picion Points. [By Staff Correspondent ] Hondersonvllle, N. a, September 1?. ?While the death of Myrtle Hawkins, whose body was found In Lake Os oeola eight days ago. was tragic, yet there is no great sensation, no great mystery In this etory, whloh has ox cited tho people of a whole State up here In the mountain's. When the coroner's inquest is concludod to-mor? row night somebody may be arrested charged with murder, yet that is not at all certain, for tho State's evi? dence is of the flimsiest kind. The murder has been overplayed. This much may bo said without un? just criticism on newspaper correspon? dents who have undertaken to build up a mystery greuter even then that following the recent killing of Mrs. Henry C. Beattle, Jr., near Iitchmond, for which her husband has been sen? tenced to electrocution. But the facts won't Justify it. Any little town is apt to get excited when a girl's body is found in a lake That Is natural. Moroover, the air has been filled with rumors, world without ^end. sut nobody could nail them down^: so there you are. An TJclr Story. It 1b not a Bcattie case; It la sim? ply the ugly story of a wayward girl and an illegal operation, porformed in the hope of saving her from dis? grace. It killed her. Thon her body was left In the woods, and finally thrown Into the water. There was none of that "malice aforethought" In the eyes of the law. It Is murder, but hardly murder. In the first degree. The evidence points to the fact. It would seem that the victim was a party to the scheme. But tho prosecution thus far has utterly failed to fasten the crime where suspicion points. And it is douhtful if it ever will. A week ago a coroner's Inquest was held; tho Jury returned the bald ver? dict that Miss Hawkins came to her death In a manner unknown. When the demand rccame insistent, the case was reopenei*. and the new Inquest, which was adjourned from day to day. was resumed this afternoon. Ton wit? nesses went on tho stand, and failed to produce the promised sensation. They knew nothing -more than had been admitted heretofore. None of them could agree. One young farmer did testify that he saw Mlrs Hawkins near the lake on Thursday a week SB", and Inter In the evening he says he saw George Bradley and a strantro woman In th" same neighborhood. By questions of the examlnlnrr attorney It was brought out that Bradley had been under suspicion, but none o? the wltnesse?. could tell anything that would be Incriminating. TTOeteetlve is ?cnsntlon. A Washington detective, who has created a bigger sensation. If you murr, know. thRn the murder It-elf. has been unable to produce any direct or indi? rect evidence. He has throughout the dull proceedings lnoke-t exceedingly grave, while the crowded court room tittered. All this talk about that re? ward of f 1.500. has dwindled down to the $?S0 which It h reported the Gov? ernor has offe-rel. Taking ur> the mys? tery from another angle, there Is no society end. There Is no golden end The girl's father ronduet? a Jewelry store, and Is not rich. The town ha* known Mvrtie Hawkln? since she nraneed nround In plgtill? snd pina? fore, and the town proper screes that the murder w?? most shocking But murder was hardlv premeditated or hardly nlnnned The girl's parents knew of her trouble before ?he dis? appeared. It Is another caao where one might wisely quote that old text that "the wages of sin Is death." During the summer reason Hender sonvllle is overrun with a gay and giddy throng. The town this year ap? pears to have eocktalled Its way Into the limelight. One newspaper went so far In discussing the murdor as to I say that the brutal killing of an Igno ! rant girl was a visitation of Provi? dence, but thore Is no rolntlon be | tween the giddy throng and Myrtle ! Hawkins, because they swung about in i different circles. ! Speaking as one who understands ; the public's weakness for mystery and j crime in typo, the Hawkins case has I been overrated. It would never have I burdened the wire except for the one 1 fact that the body was fished out of a I lake. It is a dull, sordid, unspeak? able thing.

The Beattlo murder probably lnaplr ed homo talent, and home talent gave It a brilliant dressing for the press. It may bo Just as well to cite these facts, or observations. In decapplng It from tho frenzied card. Slnco Satur? day there havo been the wildest ru- j mors about what might be expected to-Jny. Naturally, a few correspond? ents nibbled, but when It was plain on Its face that the prosecution had failed this aitcrnoon to put It squarely up to the Jury, It wus time to escape this whirlwind ot seneatlonaltalk. The groat detective became more grave towards tho end. The eminent lawyer who conducted the examination could not see visions of a murderer In tho shadow of the death chair. At tho opening of court the coroner made u neat little speech, In which he assailed certain correspondents who have citliclzed his Inactivity. He threatened to drive them away, but all this wild chatter has been brought about by tne public's demand for the sensation which local detectives prom? ised, and never revealed. To-night it Is said that an arrest, probably a lot ot arrests, will bo made to-morrow. Unless something more startling Is forthcoming to-morrow this will not happen, ami nothing startling is com? ing out. Even if it does, there Is no evidence to convict. And with all that.
