Both Branches at Organization Meeting*, Refer
to Importance of Working in Harmony With
Administrative Boarci---Officers Elected.
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. Co-oporatlon
with the Administrative Hoard was,
pledged, both by those who had favored;
ami thou.-; who hnd oppost*! the1
changes In the method of city govern?
ment, several speakers urging the
Councllmeri i? use their Inlluettca tu
??.eure the election of such members
of the Administrative Hoard w ho will
rellect credit on the city, will show
ability in handling its affairs, and who
will work in harmony with the Coun
? ll atnl city Oltlcials.
Tite Common Council was called to
order at i o'clock by city Co ; k Hen T
Aujiust, the certificates of election
from the clerk of the llusttngH Court
being duly read and recorded. An In?
novation was the distribution to each
mi mber of a neatly engraved card ivr
tlfylng to his election to the City
Council, attested by Mayor Richardson
ami City Clerk August, and carrying
the dates for which the member lias
been elected,
peters Elected.
Mi. I.'mlatlf proposed the name of
I!. I.ee patera a* president, and his
corted to the chair by Messrs Umlauf,
In ' xpresslng his thanks for election
for the fifth term as president of the
Common council, Mr. Peters alluded to
the niany absent faces, saying that Mr,
Pollock was now the only member
older thati himself In point of service.
"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. Had Mr.
Pollock, for Instance, drawn through
nil th- jear? he has served itlj
the Council and on Iii? committees the
salary you propose to pay to members!
of this board, the city would have paid'
him $90,000. He ai.d other members
have given their time freely and earn-1
estly and faithfully. '1 he new plan
will get u? away from red tape and|
cumbersome routine, the result not of I
our actions, but of laws drawn by meni
who considered us so crooked that
they continued to devise safeauards
until our every action was hampered;
and restricted, and we were left little
room for Judgment
i ommltteesi Xol Announced,
"The committees will not be an-1
nounced until a later meeting, and the
appointments will only be for four
months, as new rule? win he adopted
on January : when the Administrative!
Hoard takes charts*. At that time hew
rU'eg will be adopted and new com-'
tnlttees appointed;'1

Idem Morcan R. Mills, whose election;
was unanimous. Although he had op-|
ppsed the creation of the Administra?
tive Hoard nt the time that Issue was
pendlnc. Mr. Mills highly Indorsed the
position of President peters, pledging
his co-operation en the tloor and In
the chair to make the new system
ideal, urging the members to strlvei
tor harmony and not conflict.
.-'eats were assigned the various
delegations. Clav and Jefferson Wards
on the central aisle and Lee and Madi?

The Electric Automobile
The Electric Automobile has repeatedly proven its superiority over all of
its competitors for pleasure and commercial purposes.
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.

Mr. Jones ottered an amendment to
the proposed rules making th0 Street
' ommlttce consist of nine members
appointed at large, lit- llrst argument
was that the city should gel away
from the old ward grabbing system,
and the second that South Richmond
should have representation on the
Street Committee, it being tacltlv ac?
cepted that if only one member is al?
lowed. Mr. Pollock would be named
from Madison Ward because of his
seniority on the committee. Objection
was mudu that the law clearly spe?
cifies what shall he expended in
South Richmond und<r the annexa?
tion agreement, and the- amendment
failed by a vote of 7 to 10. as follows:

Motor Trucks
The Follies of Animal Transportation
When a team of horses pulls two or
three tons up ;i hill, say of a ten per
cent grade, they become pretty well
tuckered out. 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
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
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. Make the start by
'phoning Monroe 2666 and ask to
have an Alco Transportation Expert
call on you. No charge.

England Uns Made no Demand for
Arbitration of Canal Controversy.
London, September 3.?A complete
disavowal w as Riven'this morning by
the British foreign office of the so
called oftlclnl announcement that the
British government wdii formally de?
mand arbitration on the Fnnama Canal
tolls question?
"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>
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.
