LANE EIITERSJ DENIAL Says Light, Heat & Power Company Is Not Spying on The Municipal Plant. AFTER GAS CONNECTIONS. HE THINKS CIRCULATION OF SUCH A STORY BY ANY CITY OF FICIAL WAS IN NATURE OF A BABYISH ACT. Manager F. K. Lane of the Rich mond Light, Heat and Power com pany denies the charge that has Ihci made that his employes have gain-1 admittance to residences in this city where municipal lighting is used for the purpose of examining meters, counting incandescent light bulbs, tak ing notes on the wiring and niher things of interest to the city plant's rival. Mr. Lane states that his men were instructed recently to make a canvass of the city for the purpose of com piling data on the number of houses in the city in which there were artt ficial gas connections. This canv?$f, said Mr. Lane, was taken in the n terest of the company and of the co.n-' munity and not for the purpose of spying oa the electric lighting con nections of the municipal plant. "We now know the houses and places of business which use our lighting njid power. By the same token we know that the remaining houses and place of business which use lighting and lKwer must be supplied by the Muni cipal plant." Record Was Necessary. Mr. Lane stated that thero are large number of houses in the nUy of which his company had no record of artificial gas connections. He stat ed that it was necessary to make n complete record as people renting or buying houses always made Inquiries at the Light, Heat and Power com pany office whether or not the various houses were connected for artificial gas. Mr. Lane stated that if any of the city officials were responsible for circulating the story that the L. II. & P. company was making an inspection of the houses In various parts of town for the purpose of taking an inventory of the business and equipment of the Municipal plant, he could only regard it In the light of a babyish act. HOPPER S REPUTATION IS BETTER THAN EVER Local Theater Goers Liked His "Happyland." REFINED AND COMICAL. TRANSFERRED CONDUCT OR TO TICKET OFFICE. De Wolf Hopper still has a snlendld" reputation among theater goers, in fact at the close of "Happyland" Wed nesday night at the Genuett he stood higher In the estimation of local peo ple than ever before. Hopper himself, is always good, but when he augments his own entertaining qualities with a strong company, high class line;?, tuneful music and gorgeous costumes, the whole is emphatically great. There is something about "Happy land" that places it far above the aver age comic opera. It is built on clas sic opera lines and into it Hi rfrrown enough comedy to keep it from being tiresome. There are comedians who make Hopper work to retain his posi tion as the star and yet as funny as these comedians were, no one question ed Hopper's superiority. . The leading female role was taken by the delicate Marguerite Clark, on of the most charming little maids ever seen on the Gennett stage. Hopper, at the close of the first act, made one of his characteristic cur tain talks. The audience was large and appreciative. Street Commissioner Dye is about the busiest man In Richmond at pres ent, as all the streets are being given a thorough cleaning under his super vision and direction. In addition to using the regular street sweeper, it has been found that a number of men would also have to be used if the streets were cleaned in time and they jare at work now. The using of the j sweeper on macadam streets had proven eminently satisfactory. Rev. Manley Coming Home. The Rev. Wm. F.
