But he managed to wrest the pistol away from the high? wayman, and both negroes look t" tlu-lr heels.

AWARD CONTRACT IFOR URBANNA LINE _ - I Representatives of Enterprise Claim to Have Let Work for Fifteen Miles. WANT SEVEN PINES ROAD Street Car [Company Desires to Sell ami Be Relieved of Obligations. There wits no quorum last night of Hie Subcommittee of the Council Com? mittee on Streets, to which was refer? red the' petition of the Richmond, Ur banna and Peninsular Railroad Com? pany, to be allowed to purchase the Seven Pines electrlce lino from the Virginia Railway and rower Company. The absence Of members was partly explained through the fact thnl sub? committees of the Street Committee had been meeting each night for the past week and were worn Olit- There was present, however, a Wealth of letial talent, for and against the propo? sition. Briefly speaking:, the petitioners claim to have already awarded con? tract for erection of fifteen miles of .1 proposed railway line from Richmond to Urbnnnu. and to have surveyors at work on the remainder. As part itf this line they have secured an option on the present Seven Pines road, be? longing to the Virginia Railway and Power Company, und desire to pur? chase it and make it a part of their system. Tlie street ear company was repre? sented by A- B. Outgon, who stated that his company had given such an option ror the sale of the Seven Pines line, the sale being conditioned on the action of the Council in releasing; the company from Its present ticket anil transfer obligations. MiiNt Give Trnnafer?. At present the company is compelled bv its charter to sell ordinary tickets and school tickets and to kIvc and ac? cept transfers from other lines, good to the end of the line. It Is claimed that the Seven Pines line, because of its condition requiring it to carry passengers an average of nine miles for less than .*, cents, is losing; in act? ual operating expenses alone about S1B.000 a year, without allowing for interest on the Investment. Citizens Of Highland Sprlngn. Seven Pines and other settlements along the line have employed counsel, and will titrht the sale of the road under any such conditions. They assert that the sale Is a pretense to u"l rid of an Un? profitable suburban line. Members of the committee present expressed the view that the objection could be readily met by requiring of the purchasers before they are relieved of the ticket and transfer requirements now obtaining, that they trive bond to build the road to Urbannn within ;\ so, cllied period. Seven Pines and Highland Sprintes people are not citi? zens nc Richmond, and members of the committee held It more to the Inter? ests of the city to have a railroad into an undeveloped territory now trib? utary to Baltimore than lo have a Sil- j burblin line through a sparsely settled territory. At present the trade the whole peninsula section from trucking farms as close as twelve miles from Richmond, is entirely diverted to Bal? timore bv way of steamship lines on Ho- Vork. Pamuiikey and Mattapon! Rivers. in the absence"''of n quorum, the com? mittee discussed the proposition infor? mally; and adjourned to Thursday iiislit of next week.
