would say no. A issue of two or three

FN POWERFUL TRUST
Saving of Thousands for Tobacco
Octopus in Bill Farmer
By W. W. Jermane, Colorado Building,
Washington, D. C.
Washington, Dec. 29-.The tobacco
trust will be among the first to take
advantage of the farmers' free alcohol
bill. Application has been made it
for the privilege of using a special
denaturant, and, beginning with the
first of January, the trust hopes to
keep close to a million dollars out of
Uncle Sam's treasury. There is no pros
pect that the trust will be given serious
opposition in carrying out its purpose.
The mighty American farmer little
suspected that he was helping the to
bacco trust when he was clamoring last
winter for that free alcohol bill. One
reason was that the average farmer
doesn't know that alcohol figures in
the manufacture of tobacco. But it
does, in a peculiar way. The tobacco
manufacturer uses licorice in his pro
cess, but before it can be used it must
be cut. For the cutting a compara
tively low-proof alcohol has been em
ployed, The alcohol, with its burden
of licorice, is sprayed over the to
bacco, and the evaporation of the al
cohol leaves the licorice where the
tobacco man wants it.

For that alcohol the tobacco
has been paying upwards of $ 2

tured alcohol, it can save about $1.50

Ashland, Wis., Dec. 29.Ashland is
in the midst of a midwinter political
fight. A special election has been
called for Jan. 1 5 to vote on the ques
tion of building a municipal electric
lighting plant for which bonds must be
The question of -the extension of the
franchise of the present company tho
Ashland Light, Power and Street Rail
way company, was practically the issue
of the municipal election two years ago.
Mayor Williams, who is much opposed
to it, was elected largely on the issue
of opposition to a further extension, un
less with a material reduction rates.
The franchise expires next June, but
the fight was precipitated at a session
of the city council two weeks ago,
when a special lighting committee
brought in a long report, on whjch it
had been at work for about a year.
The- committee has secured an option
on a large tract fidand
3 on White river,
about eight miles? aouth of Ashland,
and proposes that a Qam built there,
the power transmitted i to.Ashland, and
a plant built 4

Company Is Belligerent.
The present company openly an
nounces that it will continue to op
erate* no matter what the result of the
special election on Jan 1 5 may be. A
moBt, the election can only deprive it
of the right to sell light to the city.
I will continue selling light to private
consumers, as a competitor with the
municipal plant, in case the voters de
cide to operate their own plant.
The Ashland Light, Power and Street
Railway company owns both the light
ing plant and the streetcar line. The
franchise of the latter will not expire
for many years yet. I is asserted that
the street railway does not pay ex
penses, and that the profits from the
lighting plant have paid the bills of
the streetcar company. I the voters
vote for municipal ownership* of tin*
lighting plant the effect upon the street
railway will be problematical.
N one has given any figures regarl
ing the plant except that its "estimat
cost will be $50,000." N figures
have as yet been produced as to pos
sible revenue or as to the limit of cost.
The opponents of municipal ownership
point to the fact that some time ago
the city decided to pave its streets, but
after buying expensive machinery, in
cluding a roller and crusher plant, was
unable to do the work. One block was
paved the city at such expense that
the roller has not been used since and
the paving was let to a private con
Bonded to Its Limit.
The proposed bonds are not indorsed
the city, as the city has no power
to issue or^ indorse more bonds, but
are to constitute a lien on the property
for which they pay.
The promoters of municipal ownwer
ship wiwll not divulge the names of the
prospective bondholders, but say that
the men who build the plant will ac
cept the bonds. The company contends
that a builder under such circum
stances can install such equipment as
he may wish and charge any price he
may wiBh therefor, giving the city no
recourse in case a charge is made, for
example,, of $10,000 for a generator
that the same builder would sell else
where for $5,000.
I this is the case it is "probable
that the actual value of the bonds will
be greatly inflated i order to come
within the provisions that bonds can
not be sold below par.
The company asks these questions:
