Committee to Meet on Jnlj 131b.
Captain Hugh N. Garden, of the
Virginia bondholders' committee, in
au interview published in a Now York
paper, says: "No plan has yet been
formulated stating the figures on
which a settlement should be reached,
[ for the reason that the committee de?
sires to have the conservative opinion
and advice of those who have studied
the question from the Virginia stand?
point, the creditors' standpoint, and
the disinterested standpoint, before
we formulate any scheme for submis?
sion to the advisory board. We hope
that when our plan is finally submit?
ted to the State, tho Virginia people
will feel that it represents a consen?
sus of opinions, based on ttie highest
considerations of sound finance and
public policy, and that thus the State
will have to accept the plan. 1 be?
lieve that Virginia will gladly accept
"There is an excellent prospect that,
the creditors will join in this plan ot
adjustment with practical unanimity.
The bondholders' committee an?
nounced their proposal at the first of
this week, and although creditors
were not asked to deposit the bonds
before July, large amounts of the Vir?
ginia obligations have already been
deposited both in London and at each
of the American depositaries. We an?
ticipate no opposition whatever to
the proposed plan of adjustment.
"The State needs credit at this mo?
ment in an especial degree. Virginia
is just starting on a tide of prosperity
after many years of commercial and
industrial stagnation. The mineral
and manufacturing opportunities of
the State are just being appreciated.
Almost every town has its improve?
ment company, with prospects of fur?
naces, factories, new buildings, etc.
The development of the iron and coal
deposits within the last year has been
phenomenal. There is, therefore,
every reason to urge the State and
the people of Virginia to lend assis?
tance to the present attempt to settle
the Virginia debt in a way that will
restore the credit of the State."
Mr. George S. Coe, of the advisory
board, also said on the same subject:
"This movement for the settlement ot
the Virginia debt is an effort to bring
public opinion to bear apon the State
in such a way as to induce the legis?
lature to accept an equitable plan,
devised by men of known ability and
fairness after tliey shall have consid
eredalltbe conflicting interests. Both
in London ami New York the belief is
general that the committee will sue
ceed in formulating a plan which will
be accepted alike by rhe State and
bondholders, thus terminating the
long and costly strugg'e between the
Mr. James P. Cooper, the financial
agent of the foreign bondholders'
committee, has gone to London to at
tend the meeting of the committee to
be held there on July l?. Mr. Cooper
is considered here a functns officio.
The committee have had no dealings
with him, but only with the prin?
cipals for whom he has acted as agent.
More than a majority of the bonds
have already been deposited, and all
the necessary consents to the carry?
ing out of the committee's plans ob?
tained. As they 6ay on the track,

As there seems to be an impression
that we have pledged ourselves to

Jefferson street, in which we hold a

that we have never directly or indi?

House, having merely expressed our
intention of doing everything consis?

enterprise. We would further state
that we were offered stock of the
Opera House Company upon condi?
tions that we would agree to build
said Opera House, and we declined
to purchase on any such basis. We
are, however, ready to entertain any
any propositions looking to the build?
