At the bond election to lx held De cember 12 a week from next Saturday the cltizeni whose name are on the p?cial reghter will determine wheth er the city shall takii up ut once the experiment of municipal ownership cf waterworks. A heavy responsibility lies cn the.e registered voters. They are to say whether a mortgage of $300,000 shall be plae-ed upon the taxpayersa debt which will call fcr the payment of Six Hundred and Seventy-five Thousand Dollars In pilncipal and Interest with in the ttipulated 20 years that the debt Is to run. It Is ml a small question. Neither Is It difficult to say what Is the duty of eai h vcter. 'The duty of each voter Is to defi-at the bond pro losltlon. This is mailt- plain by the existing pitimtion. Phoenix Is In a period of transition, the end whercf no man can foresee. Nobody can undertake to say today what the requirements of the town will be eight or ten years hence i: the matter of waterworks For the pe. pie unnecessarily to jlace their backs under this stupendous debt f ;r ' -njfers.

In the mme period in 51 .Texas cases the judgments aggregated $253,218, and in Iowa, in the cue case reported, the Judgment was $50. Of 'cases In which railroads wire thj ap pellants and judgment was affirmed. Texas shows C7 cases and Iowa six. These are only a few of the figures which could be cited showing the as tonishing pre-eminence of Texas over the rest of the country in the business of bleeding railways by damage suits. 'In 4fnlrf' r:i:4 :nrl PTfl-rcPrntpll statements of real injury figure large ly. A host of lawyers live and thrive by promoting suits of this character. All over the state they are on the watch for accidents. At the first report they Jump on the train, rush for the scene and proceed to bargain for the job of suing the road. The business is largely taken "on shares," th? lawyer's share being often from 40 to 50 nor cent of the Judgment. Success in the business depends on enterprise in get ting hold oT the injured or of the heir.i of the killed before the representatives of the railways can make offers of set tlement. Thus In one case, a man was killed at 9 a. m. and by 1 p. m. a snii was filed in the naire of the bereaved widow for heavy damages, before rep resentatives of the road could with any degree of decency approach the family and offer pecuniary compensation. Railways. Some of the reasons why corpora- j lions and especially rail-oad corpora- tions 'or.teHt so resolutely nil cases brought against them in the courts are not left to conjecture when one stud ies the statistics of railway damage suits. Contrary to popular impression, railroads do not litigate from choice. On the contrary, they employ an able i ftaff of employes for the purpose of Inquiring Into the merits of all claim and settling on a .fair" basis every demand that has a substantial founda tion. But once brought into court. It is the Fad experience of most corporations to face a hostile jury from th? outsot. Tint some sec tiers of the country are fairer than others, e-f course. Texas furnishes more fagrant cases of In justice than any other state or terri tory. Some figures gathered by the Hallway Age show that one of the most flourishing industries In the Btate of Texas Is now that of suing the rail ways and collecting enorqious damages uion claims for perfonal injuries, reii or ficticious. In other states there is more or less abuse of the law In pro moting extravagant claims of this kind against railway companies, hut in Tex as especially, a perverted public senti ment against corporations, reflected in the laws, and In their enforcement by courts and Juries, haa increased the judgments against the roads In damage' s-uits to vast and alarming proportions. In ten years the annual amount actual ly raid by Texas railroads in damage- for personal injuries has grown from $29."..000 to $1,705,000. the total forl9C3. This last amount represents $166.46 pcr mlle. In thT last three years Texa.- roads have paid $4,200,000 in Judgments of this kind, besides tha heavy cost of 'he litigation. At the ratio of increase In the pa it ten years, the damages on account of f u h clahns t-r years henoi will amount to $10,51K).0(.0, and one railway president says that at the present rate of Increa; there is no reason to look for any other result..
