THE SOONER THE BETTER.
.Xet Us Have An Electric Street Hallway,
If the peoplo of our city are agreed
upon any ono thing, it is in favoring a
better street car service. The question
of whether the horse-cars pay does not
figure; that is something that concerns
those who propose to put money in an
up-to-date modern street railway, and
if thej aro williug to risk it our City
Council ought certainly togiyo them on
opportunity, and that without delay.
Tho issue of the Register of tho 20lh
instant was especially interesting to
most, if not all, of our citizens, because
of tho information given on this sub
ject It is apparent that the capitalists
and those representing money liayo
strong faith in the future of Marietta.
Tho people were delighted to learn
that there was competition, and that
moro tliau ono syndicate was in the
market that two bids were received.
These bids interest al! classes, but
more especially tho "working peoplo"
and tho school children und thoir par
ents. And wo are to be congratulated
on tho fact that wcaie all working
peoplo, but do you ask why tho classos
mentioned aro especially interested?
Tho answer is, becauso our neighbors,
Messrs. Gracey, Koisor & Moore, aro
liberal enough to carry tho working
people to and from work, and the
school chlldrcnto and from school on
half fares. This generosity is appre
ciated, and is being freely discussed.
Should tho accoptanco of this proposi
tion bo delayed, great dlsai polntment
will certainly follow
What excuso can possibly be given
for any delay whatever? Certainly it
cannot be found in the suggestion that
the lino adopted should cover Front
street The business parts of Iront
and Greene streets are now covered by
astrectcar line. The company owning
it havo had the right since September,
1800, to put on electric cars. Ono of
our bidders, Mr. Davis, says he "has
contracted to purchase" that line.
Shall Mr. Davis, or the present owners,
be allowed to play tho dog in tho man
gor, and neither put on electricity, nor
allow others to do so, simply becauso
wo do not wish to give up our magnifi
cent electric light plant? Did not this
same gentleman soy to us last year
that if wo would sell our light plant,
and employ him to furnish us light at
his price for both, that ho would retire
the mule and give us electric cars?
Shall any sentiment in fayor of tho
"old company" so called, because it
was first in the field and would lose
heavily if the bid of our liberal neigh
bors should bo accepted, bo allowed to
delay this improvement? It is absurd
to entertain such an idea for a moment
The new company, or the gentlemen
named, do not make their bid on con
dition that the old line shall be abol
ished. Do they not take greater
chances of losing than tho old line
people? It is well known that the
former owners of the old line were
able to give us a modern street rail
way if they wished; but they said, No,
keep your light plant and tho mule, or
give us the light plant, and we will
emancipate tho mule.
We venture the suggestion that
Front street will take care of itself,
that if the best and most liberal bid is
promptly received and acted upon, the
buz: of the trolley line oyer Route No.
2 will soon frighten the street-car
horses and mules out of town, where
they may bo preserved as relics of an
other and less prosperous age; and the
old line people will then cither adopt
modern methods, or leave tho field to
someone who will.
Give us Route No. 2, and leave the
other to take care of itsolf. J. II.
The foregoing was written for the
Register, with the idea that it was
broad enough to give all sides of pub
lic questions a hearing. One of the
editors took it, and after reading it,
said, "Wo will insert and comment on
it." To this there was no objection.
The Register did not use it as was ex
pected. Others, regardless of personal
or local interests, arc broad and gener
ous enough to indulge us.
If any newspaper or individual sup
poses that the city of Marietta was fin
ished when the available space on
Front street was occupied, it is hoped
that the error may ere long bo made
The lines written on this subject
wero inspired by the interest that my
neighbors who walk long distances
seem to be taking in the matter, and
without any consultation or interest in
common with any biddor or proposed
stockholder. John II. Rn.r.y.
