WEDNESDAY. APMU. , 1008.
Tht Councila of small cities are
aometimei hasty and act ill-ad-viscdly
in cranting- franchises,
and it it usually not until it is too
late that their mistake is recog
nised. The Government has
asked the Council for a perpetual
blanket franchise for an electric
and telephone line throught the
city. From present indications
the Council seems disposed to
grant it, although such a propo
sition would not be considered a
moment if asked by any one else.
It is right that our town and
county ahould give every en
couragement in their power to
the government, but at the same
thne w do not believe the gov
ermnent ahould make any un
reasonable requests of our coun
cil. The citizens of to-day are
assuming a great responsibility
when they bind the future gen
eration to a perpetual franchise,
and especially a blanket fran
chise, without any restrictions
whatever. Now it is just possi
ble that Klamath Falls will even
tually own it own light, water
and power systems and there
would also be a possibility of the
city having to compete with the
government. While this is not
probable, we believe that it is
only fair that the government
ahould stale definitely just what
it wants and for what purpose
and have the same incorporated
in tht franchise. The city should
first be protected whether deal
ing with the government or with

If the draymen of this city
realy desire a dray ordinance they
should revise the one which has
been introduced as it will never
be patted as it is. In the first
place there it no protection to the
people in the matter of rates to
be chargea. There is nothing to
prevent them from charging pro
hibitive rates, if they so desired,
and the public would be compelled
to hire only those who held a li
cense and would have to pay their
office. We do not anticipate any
thing of this kind at the present
time, but it is what might occur
in the future. The main objec
tion, however, is that a yearly
licease of this kind would tend to
retard development and be an in
coavetiience to builders and others
There are usually two or three
Btonths in the year when there
it a great activity in building
and other improvement. Dur
ing this time it is almost impossi
ble to engage sufficient teams to
do the hauling. It is necessary
to nut on extra teams at this
time, and no team could afford
to pay a $40 license just for two
months work. If the ordinance
provided for a quarterly license
andthe draymen arranged for a
winter and summer schedule, we
believe they would be given suffl
' citnt and proper protection.
Some of our citizens are of the
opinion that the Council can fill
a vacancy for the unexpired term
of an officer, whose office has be
come vacant by death, resigna
tion or removal from the city.
The charter is vary plain on this
point It provides that vacancies
shall be filled by election of the
eouncil and any officer so elected
shall bold Us office untill the
sat ensuing general city elec
tion. Tha nswly appointed coun
cilman will, therefore, bold office.
