Both branches of the City Council organised yesterday afternoon, elected] presiding officers and adopted rules, the belief being generally expressed that ibis would be the most Important j Council In many years.

"Our duty as Councllmen," he said. ? .s more Important than some of ua B( c It, and more Important than many of the people consider it. The people of Richmond should feil proud of their Council for the work It has accom? plished, without compensation and In many casts 'with no thank3. This Council I regard as the most Important I in my experience of sixteen years. iH trust that every member will use his b'.st efforts In the interests of the city and continue to aid in building It up. tnr new form of government will hav... to be an Ideal on- to better that which we have had, for no city the size of ltlchmond Is better governed to-day. and no city has more h?hest and efll'-j dent workers In its legislative body. Unless we work in harmony with the Administrative Hoard, and the board with this Council, the plan will not stS.'Ceed. We should see to It that, so f.u as our Influence noes, the best men! an- elected to represent all the people and nut any particular class. Candidates Claim Everything, "What have we been doing all these years? it would seem from the claims! put forward by some candidates for! this board, not members of the Coun-j cil, that they have done It all. You! have only to search the records to find| that some of us were partlos to thel t-ood work, and did fully as much as sonie candidates now trying to take; all tb.e glory to themselves.

The severe storms of last winter did not affect it. The horse-drawn and gasoline vehicles wore stalled many times. Its control is ^ery simple and can be operated by women and children. Its upkeep is nominal, and all expenses cease when not in use. It is free from noise, dirt, obnoxious odors. No insurance restrictions. It can be run into any building and trans? ported from floor to floor on an elevator. No cranking, with the ever-present danger of back firing. Traffic conditions of streets greatly improved, owing to compactness and ease of control. For calls, shopping, general use on the streets and boulevards of the city the electric is the ideal vehicle.

Then' is a great strain. The effort required to get the load up tli*- hill would doubtless equal the effort required to pull the same load two or three miles on a level street. Result: nn/ tired horses. But if you stop to consider, it takes also some effort for a team of horses to hold back a load coming down a hill. It doesn't require as much effort, of course, as going up, but there is con? siderable energy expended. And every ounce of it counts with horse or animal transportation. Every step lessens a horse's energy for the day. At the end of the day he is a tired animal. Through the day he must have his rest spells?his recesses from hauling. Alco Trucks nre built by the EASTERN MOTOR SALES Cv.RP? An Alco motor truck never tires. Going up a hill is without effort. Hills make no difference. The si rong, powerful motor of the Alco pulls the load up in less than half the time it takes horses to descend. In going down the hill the powerful quick acting brakes hold the truck rigidly in the control of the driver. There are four different brakes. Two of them are on the rear wheels in drums. Two of them are the loco? motive, or clasp, type of brakes. They are on the jack shaft. This is not presented ns a major argument for installing motor trucks but it is a major argument why you should look into them and find out what they can do.

"The lines of action which lie before the British government are now being considered and any announcement of the kind is premature." This Is the full text of the formal statement given out '?>>? the forOljrn office this morning In reply to requests for ?etalls ns to the reported demand' for arbitration. In regard to the publication of the report, the Officials of the foreign office said In the Urst place It was wholly incorrect, for no announcement of any sort had been made. r.r,r even decided mi h>- the British government. The statement purporting to b? offlclul was Issued by the Press As? sociation nnd the Central News, two of tho leading news agencies. It ap? peared at an hour when It was too late to obtain Independent confirmation or denial and all the London news? papers printed It this morning as n> fact. Instead of this helnc the case, how? ever, the Panama ' anal question ro mains In exactly the same position it hns occupied for some time. Tho government will. In all probability, propose Its reference to tho court of arbitration at The Hague, but the on thod of submitting It to that tri? bunal has not been decided upon. The foreign pfhec has beep, through? out unspoken In Its conversations with, representatives c/ the press in the statement that arbitration la the only possible course. !And the selections are always of tho highest class, Con? torts afternoon and night. invites you.
