about by compel it ion In bidding for the
lighting contract before the Eight Com?
mittee of Councils a few months ago.
For several Saturday nights in Ihe

TALKS CONCERNING THE
VALUE OF LOTS.
Despite the injunction suit, tho At
lantlo Terminal itnilwny to Sewellta
l'olnt is still making progress. It is
true thjit the curs have been prohib?
ited frTjni running over the viaduct,
but track-laying: la not stopped.
That was resumed with great vigor
yesterday morning In tho new Monti
cello avenue, which Is an extension oC
Tripoli street on the south und of
Jumes street to the north. Workmen
were busy all day closing the gap lu
the Hack that exists between what
was formerly Tripoli street and James
street. This gap will complete the
nine miles or track Crom City ilull ave?
nue direct to Soweit'? Point. The only
delay to the running of trains, there?
fore, will be the Injunction which pre?
vents trains from crossing the via?
Speaking to a reporter for the Vlr
ginidn-Pilot Mr. D. Lowenberg, who
is Interested in the road, said that both
the silk mill and the nickle-platlng mill
were located with the promise that the
Atlantic Terminal Uoud would run ad?
jacent to them.
He mentioned, also, that many lot
owners have deferred building dwell?
ings ulong the line of the road be?
cause of the lack of transportation fa?
In answer to a question Mr. Lowen?
berg said that the viaduct is not tut
obstruction to vehicle truffle in Do
Breo avenue. The street is 60 feet
wide. The viaduct is 12 feet wide,
having room barelc for a single rail?
way track. It is BOO feef long and ex?
tends through two city blocks, which,
however, have no buildings. There
are passage ways for vehicles and pas?
sengers. Even light and air are not
Interrupted, because there is no one
to be deprived of them and because
the viaduct is built as an open struc?
Speaking or the value of the lots
there be said they could not have been
Bold tor more than $150; that the own?
ers, with the exception Of Mr. Seld?
ner, bad accepted $350 and $400, and
that Mr. Seldner had been offered $400
for his three lots. That is more, said
Mr. Lowenberg, that he could get else?
Mr. Lowenberg expressed Ihe hope
that all obstacles would soon be re?
