This Is the Information that

there is more money In acting In harmony
ni have made their arrangements to do
Hereafter when there t* a paving con

That there is such a combination was

xdurcew. A* to how tt will work out, and
is to what the effect will be upon Bavan

there is no doubt. The first overt evi

There ha* been no attempt on tlie part
of the Kouthein Asphalt Paving Company,
however, to Jump Its contract with the

intimation of the state of affairs, and th.

under a $ I •<m Uvnd to the city for the
faithful performance of its contract, and
it cannot afford to back out, even If It
had any dc. ire to do so. which Is not
believed to be the case.
In order to be on the safe side. Phalrmnn
Dixon of the Street and Lane Committee
had Director Gadsden notify ih** Southern
Asphalt Company of the Intention of the
*dty to take advantage of the renewal
clause in Its contracts, by which the con
tracts for maintaining the gtreta can be
renewed for five years by giving notice
three month* before the expiration of the
present contracts. The dlr*ctor was In
structed to give nottc of Intention to re
new all contracts. As the city only pay*

the contracts are hardly profitable to the
company It I* seen that there U good rea

According to the understanding her. the
Southern Asphalt Paving Company and
the Tennessee Paving Brick Company
have got control of all the territory
south of Baltimore, both for brick and
asphalt. The Barber Company of New

practically controls the aspnalt supply of

asphalt companies, and the W.irren-Rchnrf
