PLUMBERS' PERMITS AXD THE CITY.
The opening of the new brick pave
ment at Fourth avenue aqd Nineteenth
street, with the permission of the wat
erworks department for the laying of
a pipe for the benefit of the new Sala
flat building on Nineteenth between
Third and Fourth avenues has aroused
some discussion, notwithstanding that
in view of all the circumstances it ap
pears to have been unavoidable.
Whether or not the pavement will be
put back in as good condition as it was
before remains to be seen. The con
tracting plumbers say that it will. If
it so happens -it will be the exception
in all the excavations that have been
permitted In Rock Island since perma
nent street Improvements were inaug
urated. Fred T. Myers of Allen, Myers & Co.,
to whom the permit was granted, stat
ed this jnorntng that while he would
see to it In this case, the only practical
and systematic method of insuring the
proper restoration of paving would be
for the city to adopt regulations such
as are in' effect in Davenport, where
permits are given to open paved
streets, but the moment the pipes are
laid the firm having the permit notl
ties the city, and the paying is relald
by the city, the bill for the same sent
to the firm having the permit, and un
til that bill Is paid the firm in question
gets no further permits.

ASKS PROBE OP STATK FAIR.
The Evening Star of Lincoln, 111.,
declares that the state fair needs in

money of the people of the state
of Illinois Is spent on the fair a

The state board operating the
fair is a close corporation. The
members are not elected by the
people or selected by the governor.
They are nominated in a closed
meeting by the county fair associa
tions in congressional districts;
therefore they are independent of
the people and the state govern
ment. In the county of Cook,
where agriculture is not followed
to much of an extent, the repre
sentations on the state board is
Tho receipts from the fair are
enormous and should more than
pay expenses. Exhibitors are
charged excessive prices for

at an exorbitant figure and privi
leges sold much higher than real
estate ever sold in boom towns.
The admission rate is 50 cents
and, according to the numbers
attending' daily agreeable to the
reports of the Springfield news
papers, the income from this
source alone will run, or ought
to run, as high as $100,000. The
grand stand earnings are suffi
cient, it is claimed, to pay the
speed purses when races are car
ried out. If there are no races
the association is without ex

Several years ago, for a per
iod of two years, the state refused
a dollar of aid and the same rule
should be practiced this year. The
state fair is not in the interest of
the farmer. It may be conducted
in behalf of the professional agri
culturist from Chicago and the
professional politicians, who have
friends to reward. It is known
to be dominated by certain manu
facturers and dealers like Schuett
ler, Krebs. and Sears, Roebuck &
Co., to an extent that the State
Manufacturers' association has
withdrawn from the state fair.
In view of the general dissatis

sages. The United States proportion
is kept low by stock, food and race
track gamblers, who are willing to
pay the extortionate rates to make
sudden profits by means of quick com
munication. The telegraph now is
the chief aid of Wall street and is
in possession of Wall street The
people do not realiae the possibilities
of its use.
The history of government tele
graphs in England is one of the-best
arguments for a postal telegraph in
this country. Prior to 1870 British
telegraphs were in private hands.
The service was poor. Competition
was pretended, rates being everywhere
uniform. And those rates, though
seemingly low to Americans, were in
comparison to present British govern
ment rates, very high. It cost in 1870
from 24 cents to 48 cents to send a
20-word message, depending upon distance.-
A British study of telegraphs found
(a condition today duplicated in this
country) that companies whose aim
it is to secure a profit for their share
holders restrict their operation to the
principal towns. The rural districts
of England, just as the American
rural districts today, wanted the tele
graph. Foreign government systems
were studied and admired, and in 1870
England took over the lines.
The rates were at once reduced and
the lines extended thousands of miles.
And In the first year of British gov
ernment operation the use of the tele-1
graph by the people doubled.
About 12 years later there was an
other reduction of rates to a level of
a cent a word for 12 words as a mini
mum, and there was another vast in
crease in the popular use of the tele
graph. The average British telegram
now costs the sender between 15 and

IS cents. Compare this with the
American minimum of 25 cents for 10
words and a much higher ' average
charge. The British rates are regard
less of distance.
The British service has been much
admired by American consuls who
have studied it. The American com
panles have stifled inventions, such
as the automatic sending machines,
for the reason that they would have
to discard their present sending ap
paratus, entailing a loss of investment
The British government has adopted
all inventions, with a consequent sav
ing in cost and time. Telegrams are
sent the length of England within 30
minutes between sender and receiver.
This has been done without injury
to labor. On the contrary British
telegraph operators are now much bet
ter paid than those in this country,
and in addition they have the benefit
of old age and disability pensions
One feature of the British system
is the very low rate given to news
paper dispatches. By combining to
receive the same messages, English
newspapers pay an average of nine
cents per hundred words for press
matter the lowest press rate In the
world. The lesult is that practically
every newspaper in England, the small
est country weeklies, receive regular
telegraphic news service.
Since the agitation for American
postal telegraphs has begun, news
paper readers can expect to see
"news" items telling about the failure
of government telegraphs in England
Readers should remember that the
American telegraph monopoly, with
wires in every city newspaper of
fice, are peculiarly able to distrib
ute their inspired press agent mpiter.
These "dispatches" have already be
gun to appear, and they call attention
to the deficit which the Britim tele-
grapns snow annually
This argument is liable to rebound
sadly to the disadvantage of ihe
American companies. Great Britain in
!879 paid $40,000,000 f-jr lines -worth
$8,000,000. The payment of interest
of this overcharge is the cost which
produces the deficit. The people are
determined that the government shall
wrest the telegraph from the Wall
street gamblers and restore it to pop
ular use. And with England's mis
take to guide them, they will not be
apt to consent to pay an extortionate
price for wire properties.

had reduced - her hobbies to three,
tennis, music and domestic science, and
was . entirely faithful to them until
there came a day when she quarreled
with Lewis. He did not quarrel with
ber. It was Eve's whole affair, and
the domestic science fad was aban

play tennis like Lewis.
It was not surprising that the broken
engagement was marked by Eve's pur

Back and forth Eve flew, once de

All went well for awhile. As sbe

the grouping of woods snd bills and
moonlit patches was very confusing,
snd what had seemed to be a wide

And Eve. bewildered by the unkind
trick that fate bad served in leading
her straight to the home of Lewis
Thayer when her proud spirit would
have led her to the antipodes rather
than face him, could only hang ber
head and say faintly:
"My machine ran away from me.

where I was."

"The er man is a friend of mine,
Benson, and he is quite unhurt so you
may as well go to bed. I will help
him down," said Thnyer autborltatlTe

of gratitude that Eve shot of him from

"Very well, sir," satd Benson with
alacrity. "Shall I leave the lights on?"
"If you please. I will put the car
In. Good night. Benson."
"Good night sir." said Benson.
Tbe two in the tree watched Ben

driveway toward tbe lodge at the
gate where he lived. When be had
disappeared from view Thayer looked
Into Eve's troubled eyes.
"Thero is only one way for you to

"And that is?" asked Eve.
"I must carry you."
Eve did not hesitate. Sbe must not
show embarrassment. Sbe would be
very practical and matter of fact Cir
cumstances demanded it
"Very well." she said calmly. She
stood erect and steadied herself.
"Whenever you are ready. Mr.Tbayer."
Thayer stepped down to n lowei

up bis arms and said "Now!"
With Ere In his arms he went down
slowly, laboriously, cautiously, for.
slim as she was. It was no easy task
to carry her down the precarious way
to the ground.
At last he slipped to the turf bo

circling her. Sbe could feel the heavy
beating of his overstrained heart .The
