Of reducing the membership of tho
'Council should bo tabled until the
legislature acts on the city's request
for ' an administrative board. He
'thought the reduced Council would be
Unable to handles the situation with'
put the aid of such n paid board. Mr.
Hobson replied that even without the
proposed board the business could bo
much better dlspatchod by one-half
of the present number of members.
Mr. Bllley asserted that tho peo
;"ple did not want the city cut Into four
j wards; that there should be a rcduc
'? tion of the Council on a basis of more
wards and less representation. Mr.
Crimes agreed that ho would favor
cutting the representation sind retain?
ing eight wards.
South Richmond Views.
Mr. Patram nbly stated the posi?
tion of a certain portion of the Wash?
ington Ward population. His people,
ho euid, believed it to bo an attempt
to freeze them out; that they consid?
ered It violation of campaign promises
made during the annexation contest,
and that South Richmond would not
have proper representation under this
four-ward plan.
"We gave you our city to help you
build our city." he said. "If you adopt
this I will have to go back to my peo
plo and tell them you didn't keep
your promise."
His colleague!! Alderman John
Moore, took a different view. He ex?
plained tii a; at a meeting of the
Washington Ward Democratic Club
several weeks ago, he had asked lor
an expression of opinion, ami it had
been determined to leave the reprc
scntatives in the Council to use their
best judgment. "1 thought the matter
out." continued Mr. Moore, "and 1
voted In tho ordinance committee tor
the plan. 1 think it is a good thing*
for Richmond and consequently It
must bo a good tiling for Washington
Ward, which is a part of Richmond,
und therefore I will vote fur it here to?
night. It seems tlrango to mo to redd
In the newspapers of to-duy that the
same Democratic Club held a meeting
last night, and Instructed the delega?
tion to oppose the ordinance. 1 have
iccelvod no notice of any such meet?
ing, and I know of no reason why the
club should take such action litis lute
In the fight, when it refused to do so
fsofore. 1 believe this now plan of
government the best thing that haS
ever happened for the good of Rich?
mond, and I am for It."
How the Vote Stood.
With the applause which followed
this speech still ringing through tho
building, the roll was called on the
ordinance as it came from the Council,
' end It was concurred In by the follow?
ing vote:
Ayes?Jlessrs. Adams. Ilrnnrtt, Hut

The Administrative llonrd.
The main question of the night then
r.imc ui>, tlie joint resolution Instruct?
ing the City Attorney to secure from
the next General Assembly such
changes In tho charter of the city aa
will provide for an administrative
hoard. The Hlrschbi-rg substitute or?
dinance as adopted by tho Common
Council was read by title, detailed
reading being dispensed with, every
member being familiar with tho plan
by this time. Mr. Don Lcavy opcuod
the debate, stating that as a member
r>! the special committee which drew
tlie report, every one know his atti?
tude, and hu explained that while fav?
oring the committee's plan, he wanted
to see an administrative board creat?
ed?be thi: plan amended or unnmend
c-d. But to test tho lasue. ho moved
to striko out all of the sections alter?
ed by the Ilirschborg substitute, re?
lating to the Fire. Police and Health
Departments, and insert clauses which I
WOtlld restore the ordinance to the ex-j
.i t form in which it came from the]
special committee, and In which it was'
recommended by the Committee on!
Ordinance, Chnrter and Reform, andj
bud received the support of every com-i
inerclal organization and newspaper;
is\ the city.
Hobsou Stands Firm.
Mr. Hobson favored standing firm!
tor the paper as it came from the
Council, including the Fire, Police and
Health Departments. He had no as?
surance, he said, that It would pass
I he lower branch in amended form,
und he htvtl-neve/- seen tue citizens so
unanimous u*hything bet?re.
"If 1 thought it could go through
Itere," raid Mr. Don Leavy, "i Would
vote for it as It stands, but the Iksiio
is too Important for me to stand here
nnd 6ee It slaughtered."
.Mr. Gunst said that while an odvo
?cate of the original plan, ho also
would do nothing to endanger the i
general proposition. He stated that
he had been uiiai.1? to find a majority ,
of the body in favor of concurrence'
cs the paper stood, and therefore he
Advocated striking out the three de?
partments which had been added as a
stone with which to sink it.
"If the poll shown for anything,"
continued Mr. Gunst, "the vote in the
Common Council on tho ordinance with
these amendments, making it what
vus originally proposed, will be "C
t" 14."
Mr. Bennett, answering seine re
marks from the Washington Ward
delegation, asserted that the Southslde.
lind been given improvements since cop- i
polidatl?n such as li ha<] never before
Urcurncd of. "I thank <;od," he asserted,
"that the ward llnei have been wiped
out by our action to-night. Now lot's
?pass the administrative board measure
nd give. Richmond a government wo I
< an be proud of."
Sar? Committee Was Seared.
"Those deserting the Hlrschbcrg
*' omendment are hardly of the stutt that
;- j.eroes arc made of," asserted Colonel
'.. Grundy. "The committee which pre?
pared the plan dodged those three
.-. fcosrds merely becauB It was scared.
,' Yott don't know whtit the Oouncll will
'" tlo. Why not face the Issue tight here
rr and now?"
Mr. Hobson characterized the effort
'. to amend as a mere effort to kill tin
whole plan. "A politician came to in?
to-day," he asserted, "and said that
if we would allow them the Fire and
Police Departments we could have the
. Valance. Do you want to enter Into n
trade like that? it this Board isn't
Poing to be capable of running the
Fire and Poiic. Departments, do you

Mr. Rennolds. ot tho special commit?
tee, "aftor mature considerationand

?r Charges Prejudice.
Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Cowardlo
r.rged adoption of the ordinance as it
r-tood, Mr. Mitchell asserting that eomf
were trying to dodge merely because
the substitute hod been offered by a
labor leader, suggesting that had It
beet; a colonel or n major the Board
would have jumped at it.
Mr, Don Leavy replied that any man
who rat in the Council and cast i> pre:

The Adam? Amendment.
The queBtion recurring on adoption
Of the ordinance ue amended. Mr. Ad
urns offered and upoko In favor of a" I
amendment striking out the section
providing for election of members ol I
the i.dminlstrutIve board by vote Ol I
the people from the city at large, an -
inserting a clause providing for ap?
pointment of the commissioners by th?
Mayor, subject to ratification by a two
thirds vote of the City Council. An
administrative board, he argued, was
a good thing, provided you could secure
men Qualified lo administer the affairs
of the city. He warned the Council
that It wub putting Into the hands of
live men tho spending annually ot
$3,000,000, and that past nlstory in
Richmond had shown that men were
elected, not on their qualifications fot
ollltc. but on their personal popularity.
Votes Were cast on porbpnal grounds,
tor sympnthy or friendship or because
the man whs a good fellow or could
fclng?for every reason save that he
was the best man in the held for that
Job.
In reply Mr. Bennett asked the Boatd
to look ul some of the Mayors Rich?

rupt Inomselves, yet tried to manage
the city?some who sat In the Oily
Hull la the morning and sold whiskey
in th evening; BOjne who hail failed
at everything elso they had attempt?
ed, and he ridiculed having the ap?
pointment of so Important a bonrd In
the hands of auch Mayors as tho city
has Sometimes had in the past, mak?
ing careful explanation that he had
in. reference to the present Mnyor.
Mr. Don Leavy asserted that the
people elected the Board of Aldermen,
and he thought them entitled to is
?ood government as they could give
themselves and no better. The ques?
tion was called and the Adams amend?
ment lost on a vlvn voce vote over?

;ieople at a special election. He
thought If the people were bo com?
petent to select their commissioners,
liny were competent to say what laws

"I can't help ?thinking," remarked
Mr. Rennolds, "whatever the motives
The amendment was rejected ft to IB,

Mr. Powers protested that If tho

should not Insist on thnlr taking It.

Powers Against Board.
Mr. Powers spoke at some longth
against the creation of an administra?
tive board, being- the only member to
speak against the general proposlt'on
Ho thought it dangerous and unsnfo
to placo the government In the hands
of so few men; that they could under It
build up a most gigantic political or?
ganization through patronage and con?
tracts, asserting that ho did not wish
to soo the gates opunod in Richmond
tor political condlt'ons suoh as urn
said to exist In Norfolk. An election
would moreiy select tho five most pop?
ular men In tho city, regardless of
their fitness or business ability, wheth?

Whole movement for n doubtful exper?
iment would pluco on the tax-payers

annual expenditure, lie thought It ab?
surd to pay men only J-t.OOU to have the

gested as a possible weakness that
while theso commissioners could not
sell the Uns Works, they might lease.
It to some persons who would inuke
enormous profits out of what shoubi
be a public enterprise.
The linttl Vote.
Mr. Don Deavy answered his argu?
