"ML0 WHARF FRANCHISE.
Territorial officials have tho most
peculiar way of letting the people In

Superintendent Campbell and tho
(governor declare that then) hns been
nothing sub-rosa regarding the wharf
franchise proposed jto be granted to
the illlo Hallway, but not until this
morning, when tho B u 1 1 0 1 i n asked

text of tho franchise. And the Bui-
tln is Informed that the deal has
gone so far toward completion that

letting the public know of public bus

possible discussion tho details of any
proposed official action granting val

.This latest discovery calls to mind

and would then, with nil the facts be
fore It, be in n position to act ndvis
edly on the construction of the wharf
as a public wharf, operated as well as
built by and for the public.
Why this seeming haste?
Why tho failure to put tho whole
matter before tho public before any
protest was made?
Why not let the legislature have n
chance within the next nine months
slnco tho private corporation Is to bo
allowed two yoars lu which to mako
up Us mind?
Public control of privately con
structed public works hns been rec
ognized as having luany good feat
ures. But it would uppcar from tho
reading of tho propobed franchlso that
not n dollar'B worth of frelgnt over
and ubovo that ordinarily allowed pat
scngers, can pass onto or' over that
wharf without paying tribute to the
private corporation; furthermore not
a pound of freight can bo taken off
that wharf without It Is hauled by tho
Interests controlling the approach to
tho wharf, namely tho railroad.
One of tho difficulties of tho hinall
shipper today Is that he must pay
tribute to private owners of lanJIngs.
This illlo wharf franchise looks
on the face of It as If the prlvnto
