The physicians of the city are a unit in declaring that never before in the history of the past five or six years has there been such an epidemic of la grippe here. It seems to be in the "air" and nearly all of the resi dents of Richmond have at least one ease in their homes. The following is a partial list of those confined to their homes with grippe: George Culbert son, Adolph Blickwedel, John Rausch, D. S. Pegcr, E. B. McMahan, Mrs. Israel Hollingsworth, Mrs. James Kelly, Mrs. II. U. Wood and many others. An the grippe is not the only disease racing in this city at present. Measles and mumps are everywhere, especially among the children. The school attendance is lower by ten per cent, this month on account of the number of school children of the high school and grammar schools who are out on account of the measles or mumps. Several teachers have told of cases of mumps which broke out in the class rooms during recitations, the faces of the pupils suddenly swell ing. It is probable that the cases will not grow less in number until the warm weather comes. It is likely that interurban service to New Paris will be resumed to morrow or Saturday. The company is working to this end. It will be highly appreciated by the people. Mrs. Mary Peters of New Paris, Ohio, will soon leave that place and make her home with her daughter, Mrs. Patterson, of Terre Haute. The Peters family resided in Richmond many years ago and two of her daughters now reside here. Mrs. Mel lie Smith and Mrs. Kate Clawson. M'llOHAL Brought to Bedford xnent.

WILSON M1ESSTATEL1EHT (Continued from 1st page.) such equipment as designed by the C, G. & R. it will be necessary that the people of Richmond be charitable and liberal in allowing the amount of space necessary for successfully op erating this system. It became neces sary in the course of events to ask for two routes. Should seventh street be granted and the bridge never built that right of way would be useless, hence we would be compelled to use a route along the west bank of White water and maintain a depot at or near the Doran bridge, giving a trans fer into the city, and from which point we could go north with an out let 'eastward into Ohio. In any event, were the bridge built and Ave used seventh street for passenger traffic the city would reap great benefit by giving us facilities to get our freight trains up to that point where we might transfer our business to the C, C. & L. and Pennsylvania freight warehouses, thus obviating the neces sity of running freight trains entire ly through the heart of the city. "The citizens of Richmond should not be unmindful of the fact that this is not merely a trolley passenger road, but designed to be of as much bene fit in the handling of local and car load freight as a steam road and would give the merchants an outlet to 'the southwest not now enjoyed. There has been no disposition to keep mat ters in the wark or not to fully in form the city government as to the intentions and purposes of this com pany. e have at all times sought to be open and above board and to show the utmost fairness towards the city of Richmond and we feel that while there has been considerable discussion that the city officials aim and desire to receive this project with open arms, guarded only with those things neces sary for the protection of the best interests of your city, and we trust that this spirit may continue to exist and that we may be enabled to do all those things contemplated and prom ised to the satisfaction and benefit of the community at large, and holding the good intentions and confidence of your people in high esteem, I have to remain, Respectfully yours, "C.N.Wilson, "General Manager."

L .f COHMISSIOIERS AI OFFICIALS MEET WITH CITIZENS OF RICH MOND THIS AFTER NOON. SOUTH SIDE BRIDGE Matter Thoroughly Discussed A Large Meeting. A large number of Richmond citi zens, composed of the members of the South Side Improvement association, the city council and about fifty prom inent business men and merchants as sembled in the rooms of the county commissioners this afternoon at X o'clock, by appointment, to present the petition of the residents of the south end for a bridge. The repre sentation showed plainer than words the interest taken in this matter by the residents of all parts of Rich mond. The petition was only for a good, substantial wagon bridge, as the pro moters of the movement for the bridge intend to let the C, G. &.R. people njrht it out Avith the county commissioners in regard to laying railroad tracks on the bridge. Near ly all the taxpayers in the city are in favor of this bridge, which will help, not only the south end residents, but the people in all parts of the city. Naturally it will help that part of the city immediately affected by it to the greatest extent, but all of the city will share in the benefits to be de rived from this bridge. The following persons spoke on the subject: John L. Rupe Mr. Rupe spoke of the aims and deeds of the South Side Improvement - association, and of its willingness to help in the general -M-n-rress of the city. The people of the city are as much interested in the matter of the bridge as are those in the association, but the association has been the leading and moving spirit in the matter. The persons present aie in favor of this bridge, and ask that the commissioners take such action as is necessary to erect a wasron bridge. There are other bridges in the city, but taking into consideration the relative taxation of Richmond to that of Wayne county, the other bridges can be overlooked. Richmond is the trading point of the county, and anything tending to the convenience of traders is justified, not taking the cost into consideration. The people are in favor of this bridge. Since the C. G. and R will come in from the southwest, it is possible and probable that it will come in over the bridge, but the petition is only for a wagon bridge. A. M. Gardner Over $400,000 has been spent for bridges in this county since 1SS0. I have looked up the relative taxation and find that Rich mond paid about forty per cent, of the entire taxes. If Richmond has her proportion of the money spent for bridges, the county would owe her about 124,000. Richmond is taxed for city streets and county turnpikes and has paid about 750,000 for the keep ing up of the free pikes, so, taking these things into consideration, the outside parts of the county can not object to spending the money neces sary for a bridge. H. C. Starr Now is an opportune time for building this bridge. Bridges have opened up the northwest and central part of the township and city, and if a bridge is built in the south end the city would branch out r that direction and in a few years the increased taxation from that part would pay for the bridcre. Next week the county council will meet, and I urge that Ave come down and present the matter to it. Harmon Zwieker The bridge is needed badly and the town is ham pered by lack of room which the new bridge would open up and give to the town. Cash Beall The tax rates of Rich mond are far lower than those of any city in this state of its size and the rates have been received by me from the auditor of the different counties. so tnev are correct. Anderson, Ma rion, Terre Haute, South Bend, Hart ford City, Columbus and Greencastle have tax rates ranging from .$2.50 to $.3, while the local rate is but $2.- 40. The citizens of Richmond in the south e)d have been paying taxes for bridges in tier parts of th county for years, and now ask this bridge for themselves.
