The Richmond Concrete company is

screening of which is done by power.
It is worth any one's while to visit
the place and inspect the plant.
Beginning today and ending next
Thursday a display of the building
blocks will be made on the West
cott lot, opposite the Westcott ho
tel. The display will only remain
one week, so interested parties had
better take note of this.
The company is composed of home
people and home money and is strict
ly a home institution and should re
ceive the hearty support of our citi
zens. The officers ai-e:

Manager Wilson Here in Inter
est of New Line.
Mr. C. N. Wilson of the C
G. & R. Traction Company is
in the city looking after the in
terests of the road, and es
pecially the franchise which
was presented to council at its
last meeting, and which was
referred to a special committee.
Mr. Wilson says the sale of
bonds is off until this city takes
action. Richmond is the prin
cipal city on the line and bond
buyers want to know what the
trouble here is. The company
would like to come up seventh
street and have asked the city
council to grant them this priv
ilege. It gives the road an
easier way of getting
into the city from the
south end and would in no way
injure the street, any more
than south eighth street has
been injured. What resident
of south eighth street would
have the line on that street
removed? It benefits a street
rather than depreciates it.
Mr. Wilson is anxious that the
matter be settled soon, as his
hands are tied now.

CAUSE OF
JOHN HISER BEING SHOT
Letter received From Ben, Who is at
St. Louis Extract From
Post-Dispatch.
Yesterday we made mention of the
shooting of John Hiser in St. Louis
and gave what little knowledge there
was at the time.
Last evening W. S. Hiser, director
of manual training in the city schools,
received a letter from Benjamin His
er, who is with his wounded brother
in St. Louis. The letter says, after
giving an account of the shooting,
which we give below, that two opera
tions were performed to secure the
bullet, both of which were unsuccess
ful, only causing hemorrhages which
are oozing his life blood away. The
letter says the doctors don't offer
much hope. It says John expresses
a great desire to get wrell in order
that he mav return home. He wants

that "his great vitality will carry him
through."

The game promises to be a good
