A VISITOR 1 N TH E CITY TODAY Company Will Ask For Franchise Over One of Our Streets To Build Its Own Bridge. Mr. C. N. Wilson, general manager of the Columbus, Greensburg & Rich mond, is in the city today and he is just as enthusiastic over the prospects of his road as he ever was. He said he had a proposition to present to council and would do so next Mon day night. He will ask the privilege of running over one of our streets and will make a proposition to build their own bridge over Whitewater, It will be a bridge over which other traction lines will be allowed to run, provided they pay a tariff. The new road, the blue prints of which Mr. Wilson had in his possession, is al most straight between Richmond and Columbus, and has very few curves. It is surely as nice a piece of road A COMPANY WILL BE INCORPORATED TO INSTALL THE MUCH TALKED OF SYSTEM OF STEAM HEATING r WORK. BEGINS SOON Work in the Matter of Figuring up the Cost and Making Plans Has Been Going On.' While the plans for the installation of a steam heating plant in Richmond have been lying low for past month or two and have not been a matter of public discussion, it is not dead by any means. Rather it is "working underground" and will burst forth sonic day, and that soon, too, accord ing to a local man who is greatly in terested in the matter. It is now thought iLat without a doubt the company will be incorporated the last of this week to install this steam heating system in Richmond. The matter has passed out of the hands of the local promoters and lies entirely with the capitalists and moneyed men who are interested in this scheme who live in other cities, es pecially in Indianapolis. While this matter of the incorporation of the plant is not entirely definite, yt from the many persistent rumors all tending to the same thought, namely that this co mpany will soon incorpo rate. While unknown to the people of this city the promoters and capital ists have been carefully going over the ground for quite a long while and have at last reached the stage of ac tion. The plans of the work that will have to be done and a close estimate of the cost have been made and the men behind the scheme are now aware of the probable cost of the work. The rumors as to the probable officers of the company are not definite enough yet to be- believed for cer tain, but capitalists from out of 'voi: .,r0 the most great ly intc-.vsu'd and these wil probably be elected of1icrs and either move here or appoint local managers for them. The work of planning and es timation of the work has been going on for some time "below the sur face" and by the first of next week at least, say those who know, the company will be incorporated and ac tive steps will be taken for the be tiinnimr of this work. The field is a good one and is doubtful on account i Hotel, Indianapolis, today and to of one thing, namely, that the gas 'morrow. Several good speeches have service last year was better than ev-jbeen announced and a large attend er before and many people will be.anee is expected. Many doctors of tempted to risk gas again this year. But this will come later. GREENSBURG, & RICH- as one would desire to see. The company to be an independent road and will not ask the commission ers for a penny, but will build a trac tion bridge of their own. All the company wants is the right of way through Richmond, the principal city en route. From here they will go in to Ohio. It is up to the newly elected council now to do the right, thing. We must have interurban lines and in order to get them, the right of way must be granted through the streets of the city. The design adopted for the road is a big Q, with the picture of a Quaker standing in the center of the latter. The idea is a good one and was the thought of Mr. Wison. The Q route sounds well.

Five days have passed since his arrival but Terrell still maintains an attitude of dejection and absolute silence. He pays not the least attention to his surroundings but keeps his eyes fast ened upon the floor. Owing to his ex treme physical weakness he requires more attention than the other in- i.

The excursion season is now close at hand, inquiries as to dates are be coming numerous and indications are that notwithstanding the heavy travel to the St. Louis Exposition the usual summer excursions will be well pat ronized. Transportation men say that this year will see the gi-eatest ex clusion business the railroads have ever known, and assign as a reason the lateness of the arrival of that kind of Aveather which would make excursions paying investments for the railroads. Of course the one point where all the trains will be headed this summer will be St. Louis, and all roads running in that direction are advertising reduced rates, but still the roads running to the lakes and to the Northwest are issuing their usual amounts of excursion advertising, and are announcing as many excursions as in former years.
