The capital stock of two or more companies merged or consolidated cannot exceed the com bined capital of the com panies. In other words, tha merger itself cannot be capitalized. Such ex ploitation of the public as was before endured is forbidden to the public service barons. CAN YOU FIND ANT ONE WHO CAN GIVE A GOOD REASON WHY THIS STATE SHOULD REPEAL THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND RBSTORK THB OLD METHODS OF STOCK WATERING? BEFORE. Upon a consolidation the capitalization could be Increased ad libitum. In i st 4 six companies, with a total capitalization of J 17,000.000, were con solidated into the Con solidated Gas Company, with a capitalization of 135,430.060, an Increase in stock of $18,430,000. The new company owned only j such property as had been owned by the six ! companies. Was there any capitalization of the merger? The capitaliza tion has since, been in creased to $100,000,000. and on this the company | in the SO-cent gas case claims the right to earn a profit from the con sumer. IS IT GOOD FOB THE PI-RLir TO ALLOW SUCH CAPITALIZATION OF A MERGER? In 1900 nine companies, with tr.t.nl securities of $19.. r iSS.fi29, were merged into the New York Gas.

COMEES'S BIG PBIZE A SHARE IX THE $200,000,000. Canal and Road Work l 7 sed to Spur on Grafters and Heelers. The spending of approximately $200,000,000 of public funds in carrying out the policy of im proving the roads and oompfetlng the barge canal is the prize for success that State Chair man William J. Conner 3is holding up to the gaze of the Democratic county and Assembly district leaders around the state. "Give U s the building of the canil and the good roads, and there won't be another Repub lican Governor for ten years," is the way Con ners puts it to the leaders. The vision of that $200.<Wu'KV> has spurred scores of grafters and unscrupulous heelers to carry out the orders of Conners and Murphy in this campaign. The Democrats ia\ c little money, but the promise of getting something out of the canals and good roads has Inspired the Conners and Murphy men as they have not be.-»n inspired for years. Under Republican administration the canal and gr>od roads projects were honestly begun, and they a r.-- safeguarded by laws which ought to make It difficult f..r the grafters to "get in their hooks." But Mr. Conner? assures his henchmen that if Chanier is elected they will at once "break into" the canal appropriation. REMOVAL OF P. S. C, TOO. Another hope held out to the thirsty and hungry in the removal of the PubHe Service Commissioners if ChanW wins. Mr Conners Bays that the iaw provides that the Governor may remove them after filing his reasons with the Secretary of State. So lonj? a- they are "reasons" they will suffice for grounds for re moval and the appointment of other men These two great opportunities for public plun der are aN.ut the best cards that Murphy and Conners have these days, and they are using them to th» limit. The Democrats now have all the elective- state offices but the Governor. The Governor appoints t he State Superintendent of Public Works. While Governor Hugh.; ig on guard this official can obstruct a Demo cratic State Engineer and Surveyor; With a Democratic Governor everything >w Id !,<• wide open for Conners and Murphy. Tin- great sum of money involved )r the nuild ing of the barge canal and the state roads naturally appeals to Democratic poliUciaiia of the Conners and Murphy type. Murphy knows what tins sort of an opportunity did for the New York Contracting and TruckinK Company under the Van Wyck administrate . when he was ir. the Dock Hoard, and Conners knows what it would mean in Buffalo an ] at other points along the canal.

Th<^ hi^h standard of eflfclency and Integrity that dictated t!\-- selection of the candidates nominated at Saratoga, together with the fact that the money for the work thus far lias been honestly spent, is a guarantee that there will be "" plundering if Governor .Hashes and the Republican state ticket is elected. One-half of the $2(M>.OOO.OOti Is to be expended in the construction of the barge tanal.

Thousands See Struggle, While Other Thousands Storm the Polo Grounds in Fain. Falling upon Mathewson as he wavered for a 1 moment In the third inning. the Chicago Cubs batted their way to victory over the Giants and a third championship of the National League at > the Polo 'Grounds yesterday. In that fatal In ning New York's hopes were dashed to th« j ground as four gray clad players crossed tho plate. The score was 4 to 2. and fifty thousand crazed supporters of the Giants groaned as the ! pennant was hopelessly lost for another year. Word* can tell of how that game was won. "Words can seek to tell of the frantic thousand* who filled the Polo Grounds, of the still mor«> : frantic thousands and tens of thousands who vainly fought to get Into the grounds after the. all too brief two hours allowed to those who sought to see the struggle of the Giants for en ! trance. They can tell of how crazed men burned; down a fence at one point and kicked their way I through a grandstand at another, ef how on* man. perched on a pillar of the elevated, where he might see one play out of ten. fell to his death as he roared his Joy at the run New York had scored at the very start. Words, again, can be found to put Into figures a picture of the vastness of the crowd. It Is easy to say that not less than eighty thousand men, women and children tried to see the- game, and that thirty thousand of them actually gained entrance to the park, while as many more saw fragments of the play from the neigh boring heights, and that fully twenty thousand, after their vain fight for admission, went sadly home or kept up until the last play was mads the desperate struggle to win a way Inside against the iron wall of policemen that guarded every entrance. But words fall when one tries to convey the living, single thins that crowd became. Fused by the interest th* whole country ha» been, swept into by the most stirring: struggles tho sport of baseball has ever known, these thirty thousand atoms were welded, by a fore* as mys terious as that which binds the particles of mat ter in nature together into a compart. u=tte4 whole, that thought and yelled and moved and breathed as one suffering; self as the tragedy on the field was unfolded. FTOHTIN'O TO THE EXT>. FV>r tragedy it was. no I<>»s to the great thing* that one must call a crowd than to the battling; players in the white of the hom| team on th« field. Every player Mi that he was fighting again, and making a losing fight after that third inning, for a prize already won. And. no mat ter what individual idea? of that disputed game that was being played over In the amazingly unseasonable warmth and brilliance of the Oc tober afternoon might be. the gr»at crowd, iost as to all individual thought and feeitna; as it had been for hours, was with th" players in their wrath and in their sense of bitter Injustice at being called upon to play over once - well earned and cleanly won victory. For the two hours of the fight th» sense of the great united thing was there. Then, as the last play was made there was a sudden change in the sigh that arose. The forrf that bound th« atoms was dissolved in a final moment of rending grief, and as th» particles of the crowd streamed out. it waa over— with the yame and the great fight so gallantly made. on;y to b« lost at last, with honor, truly, even in the last ditch. Clean cut and squ.iro was < 'hicago's^ victory yesterday, and New York player* and loyal rooters alike joined in their indignation at the unknown man who thr^w a bottle at Chance, the Chicago manager, as he, ran to the club house, hurting him painfully in the neck. Tha injury waa not serious, and Chance was aMe to leave here, with the Chicago team for Detroit to play the first game of the aeries for the championship on Saturday. The Cubs came to town yesterday morning on the Twentieth Century Limited, which car ried four extra Pullmans for the trip. The train was in on time, despite the extra weight, and the team left the same station at which they had arrived in the morning last night, bavins won the National League championship in th« eleven hours between arrival and departure. GATES OPEN TWO HOUR?. As a matter of record, the gates of the Polo Grounds allowing general admission to the game were open for barely two hours yesterday, from 11 o'clock until 1. Yet in that time every un reserved seat in the grounds was gobbled up, and those who were to see the game from th» field, behind the foul lines running down to first base and third, were all In their places. That represented an attendance of more than twenty thousand alone, making allowance for the new section of the grandstand, which was used, partially completed, for the first tim and gave seats of a sort to twenty-five hundred more fan.«. At 1 o'clock both the .main gates in Eighth. avenue and those leading to the chute from the elevated station were closed. Many forced their way into the chute from the elevated platform despite the efforts of policemen, and found them selves cut off from escape. They could not get out at the bottom, and the crowd that pressed upon the gates above made it impossible for them to return by the way they had entered. Most of those who were hemmed in in this way held i tail ltd seat tickets or boxes, and wcrt> bitterly indignant at th.- complete failure of the chili it the police to keep any sort of an entrance clear for the holders of tickets. Their indignation was easy to understand, and the police, realizing their f< el Ings, showed remarkable patience with the many hard words they had to hoar.
