owners, who, by their silence
or refusal to maka common
cause with ther neighbor, put
themselves at a disadvantage tbat
wa feel sue needs only to be pointed
out to enable them to see themselves
in a false attitude, an 1 one they can
not afforj to occupy. No man of

For this reason and the other which

Yesterday in New 0 -leans a mat)
most conspicuous for his benevolence
wes laid to rest with the beoedijtion
and ble?sing of all classes of the peo
ple of that great city. The Governor
of Louisiana, the judges of the courts,
tlie municipal authorities, a'l the great
trade and other corporations, as well as
all the religious bodies of New Or
leaas were present or r'pre;entd at
the funeral of Rabbi Gutheim. He
was a man of great intellectual and
literary ability, bu', abovd that, he
was a gcod mao, a philanthropist. The
leading Ca'holiu 8nd Protsetant pas
tors expressed a great adinira ion and
a deep and abiding aff.-ction for
him, aid the greatest pulpit
orator of the South, the greatest
in the Pre9byt?riarj Canrch, delivered
an eI?Vient arjd touching address in
view oi h i remains. His memory was
tboe grea'ly bonored by the unit 'd voice
of Jew and gnotile, because he was a
good man. Verily, there is nothing

Ex-Chairman Smith dies hud.
Like a celebrated Bowery tragedian,
when by all the rules of the drama
be should stay dead, he comes to life
again, yelling: "My chair, my chair,
my lost chair 1" Wbatis there in that
chair that should make itso dearai that
in the fac of the repeated dec'arations
of the County Court that he cannot
and niuit not have it' he still takes up
the time of tbat and other courts of
the county and Sta'e in a vain and
futile effort to prove that he knows
better than the c nrt what it needs
and ought to have in a chairman ; that
he alone is right, and all the rest of
the just'ess are wrong; that th'ir
word ought not to weigh the
value of a continental aeniimt his;
tint they ara idiots who do not know
tbat a majority 21 of 39 -nf them
oted for Slaughter; that they are
dreaming, have no sense to appreciate
facte, and he alone has memory for
tem ? This is Smith's attitude before
the cour'. B)fore the people he is a
nnisr.nce to be abated by the courts
effectually and forever squelching him.
Neither the Countv Court nor the peo
ple want Smith He is down and out,
and the repeated decisions of that court
say he must stay down and out.
8 anghter is chairman by virtue of a
majority of the votes cast and he can
not be disturbed.
Thbfs are, let ns siy in answer to
a correspondent, seven reasons why
the Taxing District government should
not eotsr into a contract with the
Memphis Gaa Light Company to the
exedaeion of other and new com
panies: (1) It would create a mo
nopoly .which is repugnant to
the constitution of the Slate, which
does not permit to one man a privilege
that all others in the State cannot
shares (2) It says to foreign capital
"our doors are closed against you and
whenever you attempt to enter in'o
compe'ition with established enter
prises her the city government, hav
ing the power, will effectually inter
pose that power to prevent you."
i(3) There is noproviaion of law under
which tha Taxing District government
can become a partner in a manufactory
of any kind, on any termc, whether of
a-sumed advantage or not. (4) The
compensation of free gas for the city,
iiB consumers Deing compe leil for ten
years to pay f2 per 100O feet for the
gas they consume, would not be n
adequate compensation for tre
less of a competirg company that
pledges itself to supply gas at
$' 7i per 1000 feet to corgumers.
(5) 5-uch a contract would t (formally
shut oct the city from the beneuta of
any new discovering in gaa or elecHc
i'y, bEca'ise if lighted free it would
he sheer fo'ly for the city to pay for
electric or other lights, no mat
ter how advantageous from the
basis of a more effective and
searching light at night. (0)
The city would lose toe annuil
tsxes on the JoOO.OOO of canital which
the new company proposes to invest.
(7) The cvyan only make a con
tract forPghts, i at present, at so
mu h per 1 ght ; it cannot leially pre
vent torn petition. Even the State,
whuh is sovereign within her limits,
cinnot do tha'. She canno nor can
the United States, grant an exclusive
pnviit-ge to any citizen or number of
citizens because it would be a menace
to enterprise aad is, as we have said,
repugnant to the constitution.
