Says the Atlanta Journal, "So well
pleased have the people of Leicester,
England been with their experiments
at municipalization in gas, electric
light and water that they have re
cently installed a complete electric
railway system for their city.
For the first six months of 1904,
the net profits of the municipal gas
works, according to the report of
the American consul at Nottingham,
were $iio,ooo; of. the electric light
works $12.c5o and of the water works
"All this surplus," Mr. Mahin
writes, "goes to reduce taxes or to
benefit the public in other ways.
Which is interesting a4d instruc
Upon the new electric railway sys
tem the fare from one part of the
city to another las been fixed at one
penny, which is two cents American.
A bill has just been introduced in
congress to make street railway fares
in the District of Columbia three
cents instead of five. It is claimea
by the supporters of this measure
that three cent fares will bring ex
cellent returns on the original in
4'stment of capital."
All of which is indeed extremely
interesting and instructive. Es
pecially as showing the trend of pub
lic opinion and action more and more
toward paternalism. The mild soc

ownership of 'railways should be very
much pleased with these recent

TRYING TO ABOLISH TIPS.
Movement Has Been Started By
A Fort Worth special to the New
York Herald says:
A movement is on foot among the
traveling men's organization to unite
in an effort to break up the 'tipping
habit," said a prominent member ol
the Travelers' Protective association,
who was in the city. "Of course. we
all recognize that this perniciols
practice has becme so thoroughly
fastened on :!h people of this coun
try that it will take Herculean ef
forts to s:amp it out. I do not be
lieve any man - set of men acting
singly can cope with the problem
with any hope of success.
"But I do believe that if the lead
ilg organizations of traveling men
in this country should adopt a rule
not to give any more tips they could
ma. eriallv assist in reducing to the
ini-mun the practice of the custom.
Conmercial travelers are on the 'go'
all the while. There is never a day
that thousands are not riding on
Pullman cars in every section of
this c>untry. Every one of these
men tips the por-.er 25 cents or more
a r'ide. Some houses allow the men
this money as part of their expense
ac0.unt. and some do not. Whether
they do or not, however, is imma
terial. as it all comes from the pocket
of the man who travels.
"Unquestionably the Pullman com
pany is one of the most rapacious
corporations that exists in America.
The negro porters have learned to
look upon the men who travel for
their salaries instead of looking to
the Pullman company. The result
is that when a man does not come
across with a quarter or a half-dollar
he is put down by the black man as

"And. incidentally, during the last
year or so some of these negro por
ters have acquired an insolence that
is astonishing. Only recently I had
occasion to travel in the eastern
part of this state. On one train
was a Pullman car that was being
sent north deadhead. on account o1
having milissed c(1lnnec i()ln with th,
train scheduled to carry it. Just a:
the train was starting to pull out
fromi the !ep(t where I was. I no
1iced that a w-man of rennememt
p,assed through one car. went across
the pla f,-rm and started to enter the
iullman. As she reached the door.
the black porter juiped up the steps
of the car. The wm)nian inquired
if the Pullman car was going as far
as her destination. Instead of giv
ini a civil answer. the black man

it in the w-.an's face with the re

We feel that when we give up $2

t) the Pullman company. We feel
that we are paying the company
enough to enable it to pay its own
employes withoutO forcing them to
look to. the public for their wages.
"The feeling of combining against
the greed or insolent actions of the
porters has been gaining strength
among the traveling men for some
time. While it is too early to make
any predictions as to when the mat
ter will be put to a vote by the or
ganizations, I believe that a senti
ment is crystallizing in favor of
adopting an agreement not to give
