orate discussions whenever the least
THI QA8 UOSOPOLY Ul'8TIO.
The petition of the Kquitable Gas
Company gave Col. Montgomery the
cue (or a speech of half an hour, in
which he put himself on record ai un
altarably opposed to the granting of
any more privileges to street rauroaas,
water, gas, telephone or telegraph
companies unless they paid into the
treasury of the city a sura which would
be something like ai equivalent for
the benefits conferred. He thought it
onght to be paid in a lump, so much
canh down, because there was no
telling what the next Council, or the
next, might do. It was butter to set
tle with them at once, before they ob
tained a foothold which could not be
broken. A reduction in the price ol
gai meant very little. It might be a
lower late per tbouBand this year than
ldtt, but the monthly bills would be
as great or greater every month, just
t'io same. No man or set of men
went inti 4 stock company out of re
gtd for the welfare of the public, but
to make money, and if it was true
that the new gas company could
sell gia at $1 23 per 1000 and
make a profit, the city ought
to have about 130,000 they
rnnld afford to tav that. Memphis,
he said, was no longer begging capital
ists to invest. It was a metropolitan
city, its future was assured, capitalists
knew it and they would put np their
cash accordingly. All the beet streets
of the city had been ruonopolizad by
streetcar tracks; a Niclmlaon pave
ment for which the city had spent
thousands and goae luinotisly in debt
was dettroyed by a "new company"
which Boon sold out.
It was suggested t Col. Mont
gomery that any new corporation
might be forced to siRn a csntract not
to sell ont or coiiFotidate with a com
petitor on rain of forfeiting its rights,
but Judge Walker said that anything
which made stock uDselable, ns that
would do, wo aid be an effectual check
The majority of the Council, how
ever, were in favor of establishing
competition wherever possible.
TBI PAVING QCK3TION.
The few lines in the regular re
port of the Council meeting in regard
to the paving of Malison instead of
Marshall avenue are not so innocent
as they look. They are really loaded.
It means a clush with the Citisns'
R.ilway Company. President Had
den said that though the contract
with the company allowed them to lay
a single or double t'ack on Marshall
avenue, the price raid for the privilege
b?ingtb )iaviog of their tracks and
for two feei rn either side, it wis un
derstood un'il a day cr two since that
tbey intended to put down a double
track, and accordingly a gravel sheet
had been r rdored built. Now they
say they will put down a single track
and switches, wh;cti would, ot coarse,
online the citv ti pave a much preater
width, and he believed it was the in
tention, as soon as the city built the
street, to Quietly extend tha switch
into a donole track. Ho therefore in
formed the ccmpiiiy that it might
take the street and lava its tracks
with stone or wood, us it deeired,
but the city would do nothing. The
Council sustained his action by order
ing the same amcuut cf paving dene
DBIVINO LQ08B STOCK.
One of thetiughetst questions with
wh'ch the Council wrestled yesterday
wis tha1, ol how Btock should be
driven through the city. Pieeident
lladden said he received complaints
every day of narrow escapes by women
and children, and if he tried to rem
eiy the difficulty the stockmen com
plained bitterly. He wanted fie law
amended and made txplicit, though
he was anxious that nothing should be
done to injure the live stock trade of
the city, yet human life rlould be
Mr. Handle said the law was not
strict enough for him
Capt. Janes Lee slid it might be a
good idea to select some back street
and fix a cerRin hour for driving.
Mr. Kney said that would not work,
as s'ock would have to be kept at the
depots too long.
The colored member, Lymus Wal
lace, created a hugh by aiserting that
the mule and the niggrr were very
much alike. They could be coaxed
easier than they tould be driven.
It was the general opinion tbit
mu'esor a'tle could not he handled
no well if haltered as loose.
Capt, Lee said the great difficulty
wosto make a rule which would flt
wild and tame, young and old, broken
and unbtoken cattle and mules.
Col. Montgomery thought it would
bewtll enough to fix the number of
mules to be driven at any one time to
tay a carloed, the number of drivers
not to be les than five. The city at
torney will draw up an ordinance.
KRAMI8 IN TUB KIBE LIMITS.
The Fire Chief has been on pica
and needles tjr a mouth or more on
account of the weakening of the Coun
cil in regard to the building of houses
of combttstitle materials in the tire
limits. Several exceptions have of
late been made, and to the outsider it
lroks as if there wai a general break
down all along the line. There
is at least one member of the
Council who is of the opinion
that if a land-owner in the fire limits
is unable to put up a substantial
building, be should u II it to soma one
who could and get out into the su
burbs. It is easier to put up house
than to tear it down.
The Council begins to sie its error'
in allowing the re-establishment of
lumber yards on the burned district
and granting permission to otliers in
the center of the city. The question
was discussed ti rome length in the
meeting yesterday, and remains prac
tically unsolved, in spite cf an or
dinance intended to reach it. The
most that can be done is to prohibit
the extending of any of the present
yards, and to prevent the establieh
ment of otbeis, thongh the latter re
etriution will look a little like an effort
to keep any one else out of the busi
ness. ILECTMC LIGHflKO.
Mr. E. B. McHenrv, w ho appeared
at the Council meeting yesterday on

Gen. George Nettleton of the Kan

man yesterday in the rotunda of the

the prospects for a union depot said
the superintendent of the varions

and he felt sare it would be built.
He thought negotiations would pro
gross more satisfactorily when the
change of gauge took place this sum

road, Gen. Nettleton said, would use
their ferry when the change was
made, and would natmally take more
interest in the southern end of the
city. One of the greatest difficulties
would ba the selection of a location

be $100,000 tah on the day of sale,
and the balance either in cah or in

taken for lees than 110,000,000. The
