STREET C Alt TKAXSFERS. j
■"■•■• A" patient,and long-suffering people are j
•vvc. Hero wo havo the street car com
pany offering to give us universal trans
fers, and weeks and weeks have passed j
without the proper legislative author!- j
1v being given them to do pp. Mean- j
while, \ hundreds of people arc paying |
double fares. They kick and complain, I
hut. do nothing more. They never think j
of interesting their- representatives in j
the Board of Aldermen and Common
Council. They can get these. -transfers
for which they havo sighed, 10, these
many years, if they will strenuously j
interview the city__ fathers on the sub- j
ject.; *V ' ■''■ - ~. -|
; The subject in question was referred i
lo the Street Committee, and by it toa i
tub-comra3ttec. ' ,
It is outof the question for action to ]
>c postponed any .longer. Let us have i
aoibc ;Eort: of report from the ;sub- :
commiUec. Let a start- be made. If
:he system proposed by -the . companies
be not a satisfactory one, why, let them
lcrtow that fact. . r v: * V
It will be one of the most astounding
things that have happened: her© in a
long wliile ,if a. transfer system'
everybody has been clamoring for and
which Is now offered » by the street Tail- ;
TOy company, is defeated by repeated j
postponements in a Council • committee.
Karly action is desired, _and it does not
matter much whether the report is for
or." 'against tho company's proposition.
The main ; thing is to make. a. start. . i
. Some enthusiastic writers are disposed
to make Olney' 'the Only "man for the
democratic' nomination.
.Says Ihc Star: The
Hichmond '■> Dispatch is hunting. for a lost
county which it'eiairas formerly belonged
in Virginia. Possibly it has been swal
lowed up by. .the, 'Rlchnumdcrs-. They
have been drinking dirt for years. .
Mud,'friendC not' dirt With that substi
tution our contemporary's conclusion
would have been somewhat reasonable*
but for the fact 1 that the streams of ; the
region of tho lost .county, .do not flow
into' the James. : ■ -,, ■ '. '"- '
: ' LEGISLATIOX.
The Boston Journal, in discussing "antl
- trust" legislation and the "apparent hesi
tancy with which Congress approaches tho
•task,*' -concludes that."it is by no means
the "easy thing that" seems to be supposed
Jay some to draw. up. a bill, within con
: i vlitutlonal limitations, wlxich shall accom
j ?lish what Is desired in the public Interest
■ «-ithdiit Imposing a serious handicap upon
\ndustriaj:* and* business "development."
" Our contemporary then adds that . "if
inybody imagines the contrary let him
; irV his hand merely at drawing up a
; £ efinition i ot . a trust;; and -he will cure
. himself of his : delusion." ■ • • .
.t The Journal's point as to "constitutional
;)mltatibns" ; seems well 'taken. Butiad
jkiitting, for the sake of argument, that
it Is not, it would'still 'be no easy thing
'■■' t <y secare thd ■■ passage by "a R«pubUcari
r Cbhgreiss of an effective anti-trust bilL
"-For the trust interests might be depended
ijpMj'tosee to it that no such bill -went

paxatiycly, of reaching the trusts, and
with' that way constitutional r limitations
-have nothing to do.". It 4is through tariff
S. revision. , -The - matter is .merely * one of
? arousing, the masses to a determination
to. place the Democracy, again Inpower,

which protects and fosters the trusts.

award the franchise -to - tho best
than to the 1 highest^ bidder. •I£ • the ; '"best

Again, after a public-spirited man -has"
developed a. schemo for. a. . great . public
utility, after ho has paid surveyors. and
engineers, -after lie has gotten expert opin
ions to back him up, when hV has ; awik-;
cried the public to tho desirability,: of. the
enterprise ht has planned, -,would> it be
fair, would.it be promotive of public
' spirit, 5 would it pay. In -the long run, 1 , to
let a stranger to tlie enterprise come in
at the last minute and 1 get the 1 franchise
by bidding a ■■> trifle more than the origi
nator and promoter of the" enterprlee?
Wo think riot. And we are much; in. hope
that Mr. Opie'fl committee will take our.
view. of it.; ■■ -•■ '•' .;. '• - ; ; ;
So far as the cities and towns of^Vir-;
ginia are concerned, no subject cf legis
lation that is- likely lo present itself at
this Pfcssiori is of more importance than
thin one relating to the sale of; municipal
franchises. The chief .aim. of the con
vention was to obtain : publicity on behalf
of the urban communities and to prevent
councils from suppressing competition.
It was desired also to make corporators
pay 'a; fair; price for the franchise. Now
it is the task of the Legislature to effect j
those ends, .taking care. that the law they'
frame does "not play into the hands of |
existing monopolists. Theirs is no easy
job; all the more reason, therefore, that
the legislative committee should have the
best advice of tho best men in the city
councils of Virginia.
It is but bare Justlcoto the celebrated
Dr. Lorenz to say that when he uttered
his recent philippic against American pas
try he had never eaten of a sweet-potato
pie. A pie made after the Dispatch's re
ceipt may or may not make a person sick,
but there Is no instance on record where
the cater of it regretted satisfying his
appetite on it. . ; ; /; ■

TnE MOROCCO TROUBLE.
The "Pretender" who raised the cur- ,
rent rumpus in '. Morocco has announced
that he is not lighting for the throne
for himself. He is struggling to place
on it the Sultan's brother, Mulai Moham
med, aur'namedx the "ono eyed." This
may bo interesting and important to the
people of Morocco, but it is hardly im
portant, and is not. particularly interest
ing to the. rest of the world. It. ls, a
matter of small concern .to outsiders who
is Sultan of Morocco". : -
, But the world at ; large— the civilized
world at least— is interested in a way in
tho trouble as it may ultimately affect
tho relations . to .Morocco of one or. the
other of the tw6 great European powers,
which have long kept onvj eye, respec
tively, anxiously and jealously on thai
country- ".These powers are. Great Britain
and France. '■■ , .
When one gets away from - its coast
line Morocco is Quite an indefinite geor
graphical proposition, with a population
that is equally indefinite as to num
bers and' very! much mixed as to tribes.
France has dependencies pretty much ail
around the "Moorish ■ state," save- : in -the
south Atlantic littoral where i Spain
maintains a foothold, and also immense
possessions, . more or less shadowy as : re-j
gards '■} boundary, J that stretch : over the !
hinterland to' lalca, Tchad. ; -" ! '
In their dependencies immediately: con-. |
tiguous to Morocco and in parts of their, i
•hinterland domain the French have been j
prosecuting ; internal improvements, soiixo
of which have a no less strategic than
' trade significance. The . hopo •of France
to bring ; Morocco within the 'sphere of her
! influence r and ; finally," possess', the • "country
i is well understood, and it has been hinted'
i that she 'might s*eizet upon thlsjoceasion
I to take very' advance^ 1 : steps to -that end;

BLEEDIXG KANSAS/
Tho; . Sprinsfieidl ;. Mas'sji Republican, has
'■?.';■ nica thing; and ■''confessibrial'-.
article 'on ; iho. latest Kansas lyncliing. Fol- ;
flowing. "the* sarcastic remark ; that "the
differenco the Kansas .bf fifty
■years ago and to-day is that it: then bled
for the ; negro and ; now; ble«!d3 the riegro,".
arid having noted in an" equally sarcastic
:veirithat while the last lynching was; not
by' the "exquisite torture of fire,"' as in
the Leavfinworth {.affair, :- but by hanging-,
supplemented .wUh'j. throat cutting, the.Rep
ublican; continues : "This adds an ; ■• cx
i hibit of blood to -the entertainment, -which
must have made it all j the more 'delightful
to; Bleeding Kansans."
Then bur contemporary, expresses doubt
"if the is able to improt© on-this
.precise method- of .puttings a. riegro .but
;"of : ; the way, . where th 6 idea is to get as
much murderous . satisfaction out of: the
affair as possible." and concludes its eonr
fessiori as follows: "Meantime, and again.'
16t us of tlie North cease, pointing the ac
cusing finger at. the ; South, alone." It is
time' to-look .nearer home. It i 3' time to
a6k what has come over us, that we have
these frequent negro lynchings : in the for
mer" strongholds ; of abolitionism."' ' '-'■'.
'■■ lF. c cornniei^d the Republican's fair, out
spoken and vigorous treatment o£;; the
subject^ arid in appreciation thereof, shall
endeavor to help it out^ of its perplexity.
It wants to know what has come over these
former strongholds of abolition that negro
lynchings should be so f requentjin them. ;
Why,' tlie negroes, hayo, come over thoso
strongholds in greater numbers than' ever
before/ and more general contact with
them has aroused at the North the "race
prejudice", which, at the last, is inherently
stronger in that section than in tho
South. The Republican says, truly it is
time for the North to cease pointing the
accusing linger at tne South, and to look
nearer, home The number" of_ lynchings
at the North in recent years make it clear;
that were the negro population up there:
as large as it is down here, there would
bemoro negro, lynchings at the North
than, at the "South'. ..- ■ • V :
However, we . want to thank our Massa
chusetts contemporary' for putting' the
case as it-has done, and our gratitude js
none: the less sincere because we -find
something of the sarcasm of destiny in
the fact that "Bleeding Kansas has thrown
herself open to a most stinging 1 lashing
on the riegro question,- and it lias been
administered from another' erstwhile abo
lition stronghold..' ... ."

We! cannot see that there is .any ne
cessity for forming,a new party for,- the
purpose of curbing .these monopolies
and -depriving them: of their, unlawfully
acquired; powers. The Republican party
will not seriously take ! the 'matter in
hand. Any earnest effort in this direc
tion by it would be the signal for its
downfall. A creature of ; these monopo
lies, it cannot afford as a party, measure
to attack them, though it tries' to fool the
people; into the belief that it! intends to
do so. The relief from the evil could be
had through the Democratic party. If its
leaders /would display more independence
and backbone. Their conduct ■ in the past
few years, though, has caused the people
to have very little; more faith in their
protestations than in those of the Repub
licans.—Wilmington. Messenger.

WASHINGTON, D. • .C., January 2.—
(Special.)— Ropresentative. Underwood, . of
Alabama, one of the floor leaders of that
that party in the House, called at the
White House to-day, and on his departure
was .asked -his views as . to -the next
Democratic! nominee for President.' "I
am for: Richard Olney," he said, "and I
find a ;growing" sentiment for the Massa
chusetts "statesman. ;; Judge Parker, .of
New York, is a goodman.; So is -Senator
Gorman, of Marland, but my ; choice is
Mr. Olney, for a great many reasons!; The
first is that he is an old-time Deriiocrat,
and what tho party needs; is to get back
to "old-time principles, which are 7clear
to the hearts of the people. Mr.. Olney
is not a man of expediency, and the Reo
plc o£ all classes would : trust him. ,;He
would unite .both.the Cleveland and , ; the
Bryan \ elements; of : the party, ; .which
mighty few other men could do.' .The
Democrat party .sometimes, runs : after
isms v of different, kinds, but it sobers': up
afterward, and; becomes as .conservative
as ever.'- So longas prosperity "continues,'
the Democrats will have . to flght hard ;to
win a President, ; but if tirries begin. to'get
worse, and the' people _. should ' : conclude
to change administrations, as; they will
be sure to do when that time comes, w ; e
want a man as President, who woirld be
