The city council of Springfield must bo ex
tremely careful iiotv they grant toany com
pany orlndivitlual the raonojioly of supply
ing natural gas to the city of Springfield. It
Is now sealed that Springfield Is to hate
natural gas. If -he does not find It near at
hand, then It will be piped from a distance.
In either case the privilegeof supplying it
to this city will be of enormous value, dis
counting a gold mine, ten to one. The
question of giving this monopoly must not
be rushed through council like a proposition
to put a patent crossing over Hoo-pole
alley. We all remember how carefully the
question of water works was debated in
council, and how much talking and looking
around was done by the members of coun
cil belore the waterworks plans were finally
adopted. The question of supplying
natural gas to the city Is far more Iinixirtaiit
than that of waterworks. Several cities of
Ohio are now mourning In sack cloth ami
ashes because they sold out the privilege of
supplying them with natural gas to the
Standard oil company. Toledo is one these
cities. Her citizens were sleepy and not at
all awake to the iiniiortance of the natural
gas problem, so they Mild out for a song:
and the Northwestern ias Co. is now nisli
lts pities toward Toledo at the rate of ;i,tiou
feet per day, and w ill stum be deriving enor
mous revenues from the sale of natural gas
to Toledo householder.
Scleral other cities have done the same
thing. The Standard Oil Co., with its
millions at its back, has been recently
knocking at the door of IndianajKilis with
a proposition to supply it with natural gas.
The councilmeii ot the Hoosier capital
were too sharp to rush a lustily considered
franchise through the council, and they de
cided to iKtstpope consideration of it until
a committee from the council had taken a
tour to isit the principal gas cities ot Ohio
and Indiana to see on what tei ms the gas
wa supplied to the cities, the cost of pip
ing, etc This is exactly what should lie
done in this city. Council should apjioint
a committev to visit the gas cities of Ohio
and Indiana to learn something about nat
ural gas. Our citizens liav e had no ex
eiience with the new fuel, and the mem
bers of council probably know very little
about It. Not a franchise should tie given
until the city council has informed itself on
the natural gas question.
The only safe way would lie for the city
to take the business in hand itself. l.et
the city bore w"!N or build a piiie line and
then supply the gas at cost and Springfield
will have the biggest boom In Ohio. What
ever is done no itiontiiiol in natural gas
must lie granted for we maj find it at
our lervdoor in a short time. What lias
given Kindlay such an immense boom is the
tact that the city owns her own wells and
mains, just as in the case of water works,
and supplies citizens with gas at about cost.
It is a solier fact that the charge for all the
gas you can bunt in your cooking stove
night and da if you desire it, is 15 cents
jier mouth. At Howling flrecii the charge
for the same is $1 per month, and at Ko
toria even higher. What is going to mal e
prostierity and a boom is not gas alone, but
cheap gas. Let our citv council remember
this and handle this natural gas question
with sagacity and foresight. On this ques
tion depends the doubling in value of eerv
foot of pmiierty In the citj limits of Spriug
s'eld and the doubling of her population in
rive years'. (Jo slow, gentlemen, you hate
the most important problem before you to
figure out which was ever giien into the

oil can bedeliiered in pnnglieltl beyond'
the Jstuit where it would lie piotitable to '
substitute it for coal. At 60 cents per bar-'
rcl. at which price a great ileal of oil was
turnished to a Springfield concern for fuel,
it whs found that a saving of -0 tier cent.
could be made over the use of coal. Shortly '
alter this the price of oil adiauced to Nl I
cents per bairel, thus making it at least as
exneuslie as coal for fuel. A good tleal of
oil wasUM-d at the Champion malleable
works for making malleable iron, and I

Dr. Stuekenberg, formerly of Wittenberg
college, this city, and who now resides in
llerlin. Germany, has recently obtained a
valuable curiosity in the shape tif a desk,
which was habitually used by Alexander
Vo.i Humboldt, the great traveler and
M-ientist. Dr. Stuekenberg is very pleas
antly located in llerlin. and frequently
preaches in the American chapel. He is
engaged in literary work, and if he returns
to this country will probably be called to the
chair of one of the large eastern colleges.

"What a great swindle that trade dollar
business wa," said an old citizen yester
day. "1 remember when Springfield was
Ilooded with trade dollars. The banks
Itassed them out at par value. Pretty soon
the report came that the dollars were not
legal tender, although containing more sil
ver than the legal tender. The banks Im
mediately refused to take the coins for
more than s." cents per Si. This discount
resulted In the loss of hundreds of dollars
to the Springfield public At the very time
this discount was lieing made a certain
banker in Cincinnati was buying the coins
at S cents. 1 had a friend who collected
a prodigous number of the trade dollars in
this city. iaying IH) cents each for them.
He immediately took them to Cincinnati
and Mild them to the banker at ys cents.
He made scleral hundred dollars, clear
profit, in altuo-d two weeks. It was not
long until the trade dollars dlsaptieared
front circulation in this city entirely and
became numismatic curiosities. Just after
the discount on them was announced
many stores advertised that they
would take the trade dollars at
par in payment for goods. Many perMins
in this city refused to pay the enormous
discount on the trade dollars and hoarded
them up in hopes that the government
would redeem them in time. There is
many a stocking full of trade dollars hoard
ed up in this city waiting for the day of re
demption, which is now at hand, since a
bill has now been passed recognizing and
calling in the trade dollars at their full
Persons who obtained an inkling of what
was coming, made a handsome tiling. A
certain newspaper correspondent in Wash
ington got a hint in M)in way of what was
coming and, without waiting to hear more,
formed a syndicate, rushed off to New
York, got an option on a block of trade
dollars at a heavy discount and now that
they are redeemed, will jingle about 810.
ooo, as his share of the speculation.
The bill to redeem trade dollars is no
doubt intended to set the matter straight
w ith the people, but it is too late. It oper
ates merely for the lienelit of specu
lators, hankers and iiiomed men who
bought the money in at a
heavy discount for speeulatiic purposes.
The tieoplehaie already lost from 10 to
1.1 per cent, on the dollar, and the bankers
who have held them will not make much,
since they have had to hold them for three
or tour years to get an advance ot 10 or 15
percent Ordinary interest would have
liecii much lictter.
A Springfield citizen tell a good story il
lustrating the queer quirks of international
discount in money. The story is as follows;
There are two towns, each within atxint two

A gixxl many of our Springfield youths
were considerably rxcited oier the exain.-
natloii for the appointment of cadet mid
shipman from this district to the I. S.
naval academy at Annapolis. The exami
nation was strictly competitive, and each
Ixiy in the entire district had a fair chance
or gaining the dieted prize, i ue last ap
pointment from this district was Mr.
Clarence Williams, who is now a gallant
officer of the V. S. navy.
Many tuirents in this city are not aware
of the great advantage of such an aiqxiint
ment to a young man. The young man
appointed, as mxui as he jxxsses the
examinations of admission to the academy,
becomes a cadet midshipman in
the naial academy. He receives a salary
of J.00 per year and one ration during his
entire course at the school, and is in fact a
ineiiilier of the V. S. navy, under pay of
the lT. S. Goiernment. The school is under
the same rigid discipline as would obtain
on a V. S. man of war in active service.
The education, w hich forms the four y ears
course at the academy, is extraordinarily
thorough. It includes mathematics, train
ing in gunnery, navigation and nautical
subjects, astronomy. Krench, Spanish,
Knglish literature and many other subjects
going to make up the education of an officer
and a gentleman. The examinations are
i ery severe and many consequently drop out
since no fat oriteism is shown. The physi
cal training Is admirably- adapted to develop
physique, and a graduate of West Point or
Annapolis can ! told in a moment by his
physical perfection and fine bearing. If
the V. S. goverment would allow the at
tendance of boys not destined tor the navy
at the school on payment of a certain
tuition, the school would probably haie a
patronage as large as Harvard or Yale, but
it will not and Instead of the midshipmen
paying tuition, they are paid S500 per year
as a salary. It is estimated that the educa
tion of each cadet costs the U. S. govern
ment M?ieral thousand dollars per year,
since nothing is spared in the way ot ai
IxiintuienU of the school, professors, etc
Alter graduation the ouleU are apixiinted
to positions in the V. S. navy as fast as
they ixx-ur. those standing highest In their
classes getting the first vacancies. Mr.
Clarence Williams, of this city, was aii
pointed almost Immediately after gradu
ation, to a ixisltloit In which he went on an
CAirmiintiuic in n ,." 4uix.n4t
waters. To a boy of adientiirousdlsposl-
tion and fond tif adteiitures, such an ap-
ix.intment would be a realization of M
fondest dreams, t rout the lery start he Is j
put on sliijelxiard, as there is a large man-1
ot-war u-ed. as a training ship, connected i
w ith the academy at Annapolis. The cadets I
are taught from the. very first Imivio man the
ship anil part of their education consists in i
knowing how to handle every rope audi
spar. Occasionally a crew trout me scnooi
take the ship out ot port on a ciulse. and
the cadets thus have actual experience in
nautical life. Every midshipman who grad
uates from the academy is supplied with a
position, ami If there is none immediately
after graduation, he is given a furlough
until one can he found, he still being In the
pay of the U. S. government
Socially, the position of a V. S. naval
officer is of the highest rank. Jlemliers of
Congress, senators and judges fight for
these appointments for their sons, and con
sider themselves in luck if they get a son
into West 1'oint or Annapolis. The mem
ber of Congress who has the appointing of
a cadet is not obliged to make the examina
tion a competitive one. He may name any
one for the position, who. if he passes the
examination, will be admitted. The cus
tom in the Eighth district In the past has
been to make the examination comMtitive,
so as to give every' hoy in the district a
fair chance, and it is gratifying to see that
