GOVERNMENT MANAGEMENT. lrofeor Scott's paper, read before tbe Social Science Club, and pub lished In our columns yesterday, pre sents clearly the question of the as sumption, by the Government, of the operation of franchises, instead of granting them to individuals. The most important phase of the question is, at what stage of growth can the people safely reserve these franchises for operation by the State? The principle underlying it, is that it should be done only when the State can do it better than the individuals, and not till then. Only when the people are wise, and intelligent enough to control the Government, is it safe to put tbe operation of eco nomic affairs into Its hands. It is not safe so long as Government is used for party purposes. No opera tion of franchises can be, as a rule, successful in communities which place party politics above good municipal administration. So long as a demo crat supports a man for ofllce, because he is a democrat, and a republican supports a republican, because he is a republican, there is no room for a proper discharge of responsible ofllces. Vben, however, there appears In any community a wise discharge of ofllce, there appears, also, an independent and active public sentiment, which Insists that the best service shall be rendered by the best men. A com munity grows slowly up to this con dition. It must educate itself, "pull itself together," and understand just what it needs, before it is in any con dition to satisfactorily attend to busi ness matters. A cotnmuuity uteds a business education, ju?t a au individ ual does. Irofesor Scott correctly eays, that the riches of many thousands of meu in the States, has come from public fran chises, given by tbe people to mono polists. The larger part of the sudden and great fortunes in the States, have been voluntary, and foolishly given by the people themselves, to the mo nopolists. The people could not think, or fetand together, because they were ignorant. 'Why did the active and In telligent people of America give near a hundred millions to the builders of the Union and Central i'aeitic rail roads? Simply, because the State was not eufllcleutly well educated and organized to do it; no despotism, in a hundred years, has (legally) robbed the people, of valuable franchises, and given them away for the use of gold-bugs more lavishly, than the people who have rob bed themselves, because of their own Incompetence and ignorance. Econo mists suggested, many years ago, that the municipal governments own their own gas works. But the people have 3S71-lt AUCTIONEER. By Lewis J. Levey.

I more useiui about tne nouse than a good quality mat unless it is money. We find a Hart- mann Steel Mat indispensable in wet weather, and a Cocoa Mat a necessity when it does not rain. The two styles to gether form a useful combina- mm tion, that saves wear and tear of the carpets and matting. In this new lot we have some of the cheap ones; they sell at cents, and others of the better sort that are a trifle higher in price. Not a poor one in the lot, and none but will stand plenty of kicking about. Cut glass at half the price you are used to paying for it, ought to be inducement enough for you to buy. The pieces we have are not as broad as a church door, or as deep as a well, but they are great in quality. The pieces are suitable for every day use rather than on company nights.
