and Costly. |

[Richmond and Lynchb?rg Bodies
Satisfied With Present
System.
Senator Feathorston's bill directed
ogainst the Bo-cutctl "??--?rngo trust."
particularly da It operates In byncli
burg and Richmond, formed ihn centre
of it wann debate last night before
the Sonute Committee on ltouils uml
Internal Improvement*. Vur more thun
an hour it was ussatlcd by rcprosentu
tlves of Hynchburg ami Richmond
transfer Interests, who attacked It on
the ground that there was no public
demand for such a law; that the com?
panies now In the business are fur?
nishing adequate servlco at reasonable
rates, and that It was a piece of leg?
islation Instituted; by disgruntled
companies which were seeking to gain
entrance to a Held from which they
wore driven because of the poor ser?
vice they rendered.
In support of the bill there appeared
Attorney JennlngsC. Wise, of Richmond,
for the Cosby Transfer Company, who,
nddTcsslng himself particularly to tho
effect of the proposed law in this city,
entered Into the history of the local
transfer situation, beginning with the
year 1S51. when the Richmond Trans?
fer Company obtained u monopoly of
tho local transfer business. He made
u strong plea for the enactment of the
Jaw in the Interest of justice to the
other companies now excluded from a
ehare In the business.

W. v. Duke, .usslslant to William H.

[Appearing for the Richmond Transfer
Company, atated that the company no

was found that competing companies
failed to meet the demand of tlio pub?
lic. The service under the old regime
was ao poor, he said, that the rail?
roads were forced to take this Step

Its formation the Stock of the Itlcb
inond Transfer Company has passed
from the ownership of the railroad of

The proposed law In requiring the
rallroaos to extern! the same transfer
rights to all companies capable ot
, meeting the condition's Imposed, on a
basis of f r< c competition, bears dlrect
| lv on the trnnstor Hltuntion In Lyneh
I burg, and representatives of the l.ong
Transfer Company ot that city wore on
i hand to oppose It. The Long Company
enjoys the same monopoly in Lynch
burg that the ltlchmond Transfer Com*
I puny does In this city, and it was
I defended on the lines followed by Mr.
Duke.
Attorney C. H. Goodman, appearing
ah the representative of the Lynch
burg company, defended It agaln.-it
the unreasonable cimrges argu?
ment brought against it. and stated
moreover that Lynchburg business in?
terests were unanimous In their de?
mand that the present arrangement |
be kept In force. He intimated that
the hill owed its lnccntioii largely to
the desire of the. People's Transfer
Company, of the same city, to enter

been driven because of Incompetency.
Chamber Again*! it.
l>. If. Kylund, representing the mcr
I Chants of Lynchburg. brought u reeo
' lutlon of the Chambe of Commerco
I of that city, asking that the bill be
: not passed. A similar resolution was
firesented by W. T. Dabney for the
lichmond Chamber. Mr. Hyland told
of instances in which the traveling
publii was put to much Inconvenience
and annoyance when the transfer
needs wero incompetently met by a
number of competing companion.
Senator Featherston argued for the
law In the Interest of the American
principle, which gives equal privileges
to all and special privileges to none
In the earning of a livelihood. The
present system was an open viola?
tion of the principle of free competi?
tion. The bill, he said, was Indorsed
by ths Trevelors' Protective Associa?
tion, tho Virginia Travelers' Associa?
tion and the United Commercial Trav?
elers. The committee will hold a fur
