The Light Committee of the Councils met yesterday at noon at the olllce of the City Treasurer to open bids for the public lighting of the city for the term of three years, from September 1, 1900. The committee consists of Mr. James A. Rldgewell, chairman; Judge J. M. Keel? ing and Mr. E. L. Mayer. There were present Judge Brooks, representing the Norfolk Electric Com? pany; Mr. W. D. Pendcr, representing the Norfolk .Heat, Light and Power Company, and Mr. Peter Wright, rep? resenting the Norfolk Railway and Light Company. There were present Judge Brooke, caster Williams, president of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company; Mr. A. P. YVarrington, president of the Norfolk Electric Company, and Messrs. I. H. Silverinan and Mr. Stern, of Phil? adelphia. FOUR BIDS RECEIVED. The bids of the Electric Company of Virginia and Norfolk Heat, Light and Power Company hud been handed be? fore tho hour of noon to the clerk of the Councils, Mr. Steed. A few minutes after the hour of noon the committee was called to order by its chairman, Mr. Rldgewell. Mr. Peter Wright then at once handed in._t.he bid of the Nor? folk Railway and Light Company (Vir? ginia Electric Company). OBJECTIONS RAISED. Messrs. Render and Brooke then rose and raised the technical objection to lliis bid that it should have been hand? ed in before 12 m. Mr. Eidgewell stated that the com? mittee had not been organized to re? ceive the bids, and that the bid should be received. Judge Keeling gave his opinion that the purpose of the com? mittee was to receive bids, and those two over-ruled Air. Mayer's objection and ordered the clerk, on Dehalf of the committee, to receive the bid. ANOTHER OBJECTION. Then the bid of the Norfolk Heat, Light and Power Company was opened and read, and next that of the Norfolk Electric Company was opened and read, and both were placed on file. The bid of the Norfolk Railway and Light Com? pany (Virginia Electric Company) was opened and objected to by Messrs. Pen? der and Brooke on account of Its form. This bid wos In the form of a letter, and ltd proposals embraced the specifi? cations of the committee. ITS FORM CHANGED. After n debate, in which Mr. Mayer ngain objected to the rcceival of the bid on account of supposed Informality, he was ngain over-ruled by tho other two members of the committee, and tho bid was ordered read. The bid of the Elec? tric Company of America was next opened, read and placed on file. After nil tho bids had been read Mr. Mayer moved that the Norfolk Railway and Light Company be permitted to enter its bid on the regular form, and the bid was so entered and received. THE BIDS ITEMIZED. The bids ns presented were as fol? lows, viz: The Norfolk Electric Com? pany?For 292 open or enclosed arc lamps, $71.00 each; for 326 incandescent lamps, $5.HO Kich. This was a conditional offer, the con? ditions being that a franchise *bc granted the company nnd under said franchise the company shall construct an underground system on Main street from Newton to Church, on Church street from Main to Cove, on Church si root from Main to Union, nnd across Church street, along Enst Main street to Reld's lane.

This bid I was coupled with the provision that | the company will put two miles, or more, of Its wires In the business dis? trict, underground, and pay the city I as n bonus or rebate, 2 per cent, of Its ] gross receipts from all sources. ELECTRIC CO. OP AMERICA. The Electric Company of America, a Philadelphia corporation, by its pres? ident, Mr. A. London Snowden, made the following offer: 292 open arc lamps, $71.00; for 326 incandescent lamps, $1.00. NORFOLK RT. AND LIGHT CO. This company, by R. Lancaster Wil? liams, its president, made a bid as fol? lows: 292 open arc lights, $58.00; for 292 enclosed urc lights, $70.00; for 326 incandescent lamps, $6.00. BIDS SUMMARIZED. In order that the public may see the comparative cost of lighting the city of Norfolk under the bids received, they are summarized as follows, viz: 55 2 W * ? 2. ~- S, w a o w Sil I F_ o a ?< ?2 a* p ^ O o 3 I p > c 4^! ? J p 9 o o o O 3 O O o O ft 13 1-3 I ; i i p o 55 3 H Id a a S h o o cr; o w w rt Pf W ? o W EEs! e ?! 1 1? o 5 " 3 ? a 3 p > tr1 ?Sil if e e o o to to to to O O. 9 o IS H .M r1 ,M ? Sa* -1 -J to \s o TWLLIAMS' LOWEST BID. From these It will be seen that the bid of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company was the lowest. This com? pany is the successor of the Virginia Electric Company, that now has the contract for lighting the city. The com? mittee reserved the right to reject any or all bids. MEETS AGAIN TO-DAY. The committee took the whole mat? ter -under advisement and will meet again to-night, at 7:30 o'clock. It is probable that each proposition will be carefully considered and no hasty ac? tion taken. Mr. Pcnder's proposition makes the bid of his company really Indetermi? nate, as he is offering the city a bonus of 2 per cent, on an unknown, Indeter? minate sum, viz: 2 per cent, on gross receipts of a business not now in ex? istence and the volume of which can? not be accurately estimated. The difference between the Williams hid, $1S,S92.00, and the Fender bid. $23,693.00. Is $1,801.00. Thus It would take gross receipts of $210,050.00 per an? num, by the Ponder Company, to give the city a bonus of $1,801.00. CHEAPER LIGHTS. The results of the bids will be that Norfolk will have cheaper lights than heretofore. The city has been paying $S5 per year for open nrc lights and $6 per year for lncandescents. Thus It will be seen that there Is a reduction of about one third In the lowest bid received. AFTER SOCIAL CLUBS. RICHMOND POLICE ARE STIRRING THEM UP. Chief of Police Howard, of the Rich? mond police department, has begun a crusade against Social Clubs suspected of failure to comply with the law. Tuesday he hnd a quartette before the police court, the cases were continued to the 29th instant. The defendants, who were mostly negroes, were repre? sented by counsel, and commonwealth's attorney Richardson Cooke, after the States interest. He informed the court that the law granting life to social clubs made it positive that a list of the members of such clubs should bo ex? hibited -to tho Hustings Court at its April term and that the law hnd been violated- He wns emphatic in the de? claration that no club had a right to sell liquor on Sunday. He cited the fol? lowing: THE LAW. Chapter 443 of the Acts of Assembly, 1897-'98, "Thnt any social club chartered nnd that desired to keep on hand at their club-house liquors to be sold directly or Indirectly, or given away to the members of such corporation shall on or before the 13th dnv of April of each year pay to the treasurer of tho county or corporation a tax equal to one dollar for each person who has been a member of such club during the preceding year, but the tax shall be only one-hnlf where malt li? quors nrc send or given away nt such clubs. "Unless said tax be paid, such club shall be deemed guilty of a misde? meanor, and shall be fined not less than twenty dollars, or in the discre? tion of tho court imprisoned not more than six months or both. "Such tax as above described If paid, releases it from tho payment of any other tax for the privilege. "Upon complaint of nny person that such clubs nrc being conducted to evade the laws of tho State regulating the licensing and sale of liquors, and after service of such a complaint nt least ton days before the hearing of the complaint, thr> charter rights may become void, and nil persons con? nected shall bo subject to the penalties prescribed." can ii ill im Cures T-a Grippe, Pains.

The Virginia Electric Company, the Norfolk Street Railroad Company and the (Norfolk and Ocean View Railway Company have been consolidated into the new company known as the Nor? folk Railway and Light Company, with a capital stock of $1,650,000. The various meetings of the stock? holders and directors authorizing the consolidation were held In Norfolk November 2d, and the consolidation agreement was lodged yesterday with the Board of Public Works In Rich? mond.

These various properties have 'for some time noon owned, to a large ex? tent, by the same parties, n consider? able portion of the money invested being Norfolk capital. They are now brought Into one compact organization, enabling the company to improve Its service to the public in its various departments. A considerable saving in expenses will also be effected, nnd this saving will facilitate the maintenance of equipment and service upon a higher standard than would otherwise be possible. The very low bid yesterday upon the city lighting contract is an Indication of what may be expected under the new regime. THE POWER PLANT. The present power station On Cove street will be very materially enlarged and extended. The boiler room will be of brick, with Iron roof, lofty, well ventilated, and eventually 72 feet 8 Inches by 180 feet In size.

The power house of the Norfolk Street Railroad, at Huntersville, that of the Norfolk and Ocean View Rail? road, at Oakwood, and that of the Berkley Light and Power Company, at Berkley, will be abandoned. Sufficient property has been purchased adjoining the present plant on Cove street to afford ample room for the enlarged power station there that will supplant those to be abandoned. Every possible labor-saving device will bo installed in the now power plant. The new building will front on Cove street, and will be of brick and pleasing In design. It will have nn Iron roof and overhead traveling crane of large capacity. The present boiler capacity will be Increased by water-tube boilers, with an aggregate capacity of 1,500 horse? power. The present engine capacity will be Increased by 2,200 horsepower, compound, condensing engines, with two direct, connected generators for railway work. These were purchased during last summer and will be de? livered shortly. Two 250 horsepower engines, with three-phase alternating generators, have boon purchased, and will be used Tor lighting nnd power service In Berkley. Ocean View, Hun? tersville, Atlantic City Ward, and the outskirts of Norfolk. All the above machinery Is, In addition to that now in use, in the plant on Cove street. STORAGE STATION AT OAKWOOD. Tho Norfolk and Ocean View Rail? road Is to bo operated from a storage battery, to bo located at Oakwood.
