The local bakers of the city held a meeting at the Westcott last night, the object of which was to consult with each other and if possible devise some plan whereby their interests could be protected against . the high price of flour prevailing. It is quoted today at $6.50 per barrel. The meeting was well attended, and considerable interest was manifest ed. ;. It was stated at the meeting that the different bakeries all over the country were raising the price of bread and at the same time reducing the size of the loaf. It was the con sensus of opinion of those present that to continue the manufacture the size loaf they are now making, and at the same price would mean a heavy loss, and that it looked to them as if something ought to be done. It was the sense of the meeting that it wag folly for Richmond bakers to hold back any longer, and the thing to do would be to change the price of bread, and that as soori as possible. "Along this line there was nothing definitely done. ; In llik " forward movement, the bakers have been - waiting one on the other to act, but a? it was stated, this city is slow to -t-r act in everything pf this kind, it mas AN ATTEMPT TO BYNAITE HEADGATES OF ST.

Palladium: "We have been very liberal in our wholesale methods. We have been giving boarding houses, lunch coun ters and saloons, the benefit of whole , sale prices, just I he same as persons who sell bread. It is our object to go after the wholesalers first and raise the price on them. Then if that is not sufficient to keep us from losing money, we will have to give our cus tomers a sixteen-ounce loaf. We have been giving seventeen, and find that other cities have reduced to six teen. The difference in the size of the loaf would scarcely be percep tible. "However, nothing has been done definitely and nothing will be done until another meeting is held." THE RICHMOND HOME AGAIN Cleveland Pyle and Joe Blose Spend Week at the Fair.

The Palladium bad an interview with a Main street business man in regard to Municipal lighting. He is a man who knows something about the business, too. He said: "There is no good reason why the municipal plant shouldn't pay if properly man aged. I don't believe there ourht o be any sticks or drones connected with the institution. It will take live, en ergetic, hustling men to make it a suc cess. There is need of men who will make a thorough canvass of the city and interest the people in electric lighting. It is a good light and a cheap light and if the citizens will support the plant it will be a success.- ! All that is needed in the oflW i n competent book-keeper. The other persons connected with the plant should be seekers after business. It is Dusiness that is needed, not bosses. Charley Rodgers is a good man, and is thoroughly competent. He is also a hustler." j There is no difficulty in seeing that the genileman is right. If the plant is the success that it ought to be it will require hustling. And that is what is required in every business to make it successful.'

The bee line to Chicago is practically completed. The next in order was a direct line to Louisville, through the extreme ; southern tier of counties in Indiana. This proposed line would have reduc ed the distance to 105 miles. The survey provided for a line from Miami, about fifteen miles northwest of Cincinnati, southwester ly through Valey Junction and Law reneeburg and Aurora. Continuing southwesterly the sur vey passed through Dearborn and Switzerland counties to Madison, thence in a straight line to Jeffer sonville and the bridge across the jOhio to Louisville.
