TO THE PUBLIC Upon the Subject of "Railroading" a Franchise Charges are made In yesterday's editions of "The Ttmes-Dlspatch" and "Journal" that an effort la being made by this Company to "railroad" its franchise through the Council. WHAT ARE THE FACTS? This franchise has been before tho Council for eight months. U has been considered at length by. a Subcommittee of the Committee on Streets, and a draft of an ordinance mad-> by the City Attorney, In accoiuance with the Subcommittee's Instructions, presented to the full Committee. The Committee on Streets again went into the matter, hearing argument of counsel and the state? ment of an expert |n opposition. That Committee then, by ? vote of 12 to Z, expressed Its satisfaction with the ordinance as drawn. Mueh is made of the City Attorney's opinion that the ordinance would mean litigation, / WHY NOT HE FAIR? Th.- City Attorney's objection was chiefly to subsection 2 of section 8. This was removed by the adoption by the Committee of a substitute therefor, prepared by the City Attorney, without, objection upon the part of this Company. That official's ?plnlon wns that a "blanket" franchise, such as the ono In question, is valid and that its provisions can be enforced. The "Journal'' says "Amendments and substitutes have been suggested by the City Attorney and others. These are yet to be passed upon." , WHY NOT RE ACCURATE? Not a single amendment has been suggested by any one that has not been carefully considered by the Committee, and every one suggested by the City Mtorney naa ndopted. It Is charged that this Company Is trying to secure the final passage of this ordinance bofore-Sep tember 1st. This Is true. It Is also charce.i that the Councilmen who signed the call for a special meeting are actuated by a desire to "railroad" the matter through before going out of office. ThlB Is unjust and unwarranted. These gentlemen signed the call, at our request, without regard to their attitude towards the fron ehlse. Eight of the twelve members of the Committee on Streets, who voted -for the franchise, wflTJJ? members of the new Council, and two of the others are candidates before the people for tha Admlrdatorattv? Board. ( i If this franchise Is to be acted upon, it is necessary that there should be no further delsry. The Constitution provides that, after this ordinance shall have been passed by each brsmeh oitthe Council and signed by the Mayor, it shall lie advertised for four weeks. Then it comes back to ?'the Common Council, Is referred to a committee, voted upon again by each branch of the CounolL and again signed by tho Mayor. Unless all of this shall have been comploted by September let, the frar.-hlse will he dead?a year's work ?wasted, and a now light begun before the new Council. Delay, then, -will kill this franchise as effectively as votes. Hence tbe-cry agt?n8t?'TlaIl^t^e^t^Iig.', WHY SHOULD THEME BE FURTHER DEEAT? ~V , The franchise has been before the Committee on Streets for eight months. r 1 It has been amended at the suggestion of the City Attorney. 1 It iias been recommended by an overwhelming majority of the Commltteo. It has been given publicity by "Service Talks," by experts and by newspaper editorials. It Is printed, and a copy Is in the hands of every Councilman. Twenty-two hundred business firms of the city and representatives of 1,000 working men-have.-as kad for Its passage. A moss-meeting of citizens of the East End has unanimously Indorsed tha proposition. ,e-nfl *** believe SO per cent, of the entire population, not interested In the rival Company, agree with; them. The "Journal'' says that this Company has wanted to sell out to Its rival and "that tho oldr Company, refused to pay the price demanded." This Is unqualifiedly fnlae. This denial has been made upon every occasion, nnd In the presonoe of officials of the Virginia Rail? way and Power Company, In the hearing before the Committee on Streets. Furthermore, wo have stated In the same presence that at least two offers were mad.- to buy by the pe-rtle? at the respective times In control of the obi lines, and that each lime the, offer was refused, without any counter proposition being made. AMI THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NEVER BEEN CHALLENGED. , IS IT HONEST. THEN, TO REPEAT SUCH BASE AND BASEERKS RUMORS? Read the following section of the proposed ordmanco and see If anything bo needed to protect the City's Interest. Subsection 2 was prepared by the City Attorney and nccepted by us without protest. 'I hen consider that the Virginia Railway and Power Company is under no obligation to sell electric eur rerit to any one t :i a greater extent than 2.000 K. W. It can dictate Its own terms, and requires you, if you wish light, to build Its line for It, if you happen to live a few feet away. EXTRACT FROM PROPOSED FRANCHISE. S.
