The Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM Who theC You RICHMOND, IND. NUMBER 301. .Makes Smoke More Trust Tactics More evidence 'of the cut throat methods of the Light, Heat & Power company have come to light through the refusal of this company to submit in writing its offer to furnish lighting to the county jail and court Louse at very reduced rates. This shows that the Light, Heat &. Power company is just like any other trust in that it fears publicity. And just like all oth er trusts at this time it is going to get its fill of publicity, for publicity is the only way in which its dark methods can be combatted and the munici pal lighting plant saved from the net spread about it. The citizens of Rich mond owe a vote of thanks to the county commissioners for their refusal to be party to the inside offers made by the local branch of the elective trust. We would suggest that the merchants and citizens follow this line when they are approached by any representative of the lighting trust with an offer of low rates: Require the offer to be submitted in written form and then if it is accepted require a contract to be given which will jruarantee you those low rates for the next five or ten years. Do this and watch the lighting trust squirm out of any such condition. Its representa tive will tell you that he will give you a contract covering the next two years but you have only to remember that those two years are the space of time during which the Light, Heat & Power company is to be supported by the other branches of the trust to the extent of $100,000. The Light, Heat, & Power company for the next two years will have as its slogan, "Low rates and may the devil take the municipal lighting plant." And at the end of those two years if the municipal plant has been put out of busi ness, "Now then, for the good old high, extortionate rates, and to the dickens with the people." The term "class spirit" ha3 become much abused. Today it is general ly understood to stand for class scrapping, hazing, the defacing of college property, etc., and, interpreted in this way, justly deserves the condem nation it receives. Such actions usually result from the recklessness of a few, but the class as a whole and the entire college community must suf fer for them. With a little tact, could not this over-enthusiasm of the few be united with the energies of the whole class and directed toward a more profitable end? There are many ways in which the class may exert its spirit which will tend to strengthen it and to make the class organiza tion mean more to the individual member. For "class spirit," in its true gense, must exist in every school, since it forms one of the essential ele ment of college life. The Earlhamite. From Elwood there comes the notice of the shut down of the Ameri can Sheet and Tinplate company's factory, on account of a threatened strike among two hundred openers. There is- much business depression as a result of the move. Elwood once the proud city of the gas belt with her flourishing industries, is steadily and surely falling behind. Elwood's example Is certainly an argument in favor of such, solidity as is manifest ed In Richmond's commercial enterprises. It is to be regretted that fire destroyed Helicon hall, the socialistic colony of Upton Sinclair. So many of such schemes fall through of their own weight of impracticability that when such an enterprise gets fairly started the public likes to see the elements hold off and give the novice a trial. Today G rover Cleveland is celebrating his seventieth birthday. Scarcely a week passes when there is not some editorial discussion . of what to do with our ex-presidents.

Perhaps you never thought the matter of very much importance but consid ered it enough to know the retailer from whom you bought. But when you are repeatedly stung with poor cigars you cannot always blame the retailer that isn't the way to avoid unreliable brands. Because that very same retailer probably carries in stock the best brands of cigars made if you only ask for them. You ought to KNOW When you get a poor cigar and you don't know who made it how are you going to avoid the other brands the same manufacture? Don't you see that there is no way to prevent dis honest or incompetent manufacturers from re peatedly imposing on you by offering you unidentified brands of different names? A M.W of Mf Tlie NEW 13 JUL w is convincing evidence of the improved quality which the Triangle A guarantees. Every box is extra wrapped in glassine paper to keep the cigars clean, fresh and in perfect smoking condition. The American Cigar Company stands back of its brands with a responsible guarantee of their quality. We stamp the boxes of our standard brands with our Triangle A merit mark so you can immediately distinguish them wherever you go. Then we invite you even urge you to go to any store and ask for any one of our Triangle A brands then judge it strictly on its merits in critical eomparir son with the cigars of any other manu facture sold you at the same price. Isn't that a square deal ? Do you know any other cigar manufac turer who stands back of his product . in the same unmistakable way and on the same re sponsible basis, with as plain a guarantee of value? 2j JLIJ- Jf AMERICAN CIGAR COMPANY, Manufacturer News of the Railroads, by Local and General o.owenkuhn ROOSEVELT WAS PLEASED. An interesting story has been sent out from Washington concerning the arrival in that city of Eli Smith, the hero of the Alaskan trail who with his dogs and sleds passed through Rich mond some time ago. The story says: EASING UP IN SHORTAGE. An easing up has come in the car shortage of the west. But this does not mean that there is a surplus, as all western lines are short of cars and ex pect to be. They have more cars for two reasons. One is that their re ceipts from car builders that has been under way of late has begun to be felt. Second, that there has been-a let up in the movement of a few lines of freight, especially in ice, which has given the western as well as eastern lines more cars for the grain and oth er trade. They are handling a larger business at this time than ever before and are preparing for an equalization of rates, according to the statement given out in the local office. Mer chandise is being moved at present in large quantities. The present car shortage is one where the situation cannot be changed until there is a gen eral failure of crops or a slump in the present high degree of prosperity. The curtailing movement under way is southern Ohio and western Pennsyl vania . roads, received at the local freight offices last week, are expected to be removed by the middle of the week. The high waters are receding rapidly and it will take about two weeks' work to repair the roadbeds in proper condition, but trains will be run this week, the worst places in the tracks having been repaired immediately.

Henry Fink, chairman of the board of directors of the NorfolK & Western railroad, is heartily in favor of co operation between the government and the railroads and public and he con tends that this should be accomplished through the newspapers of the country.

Concerning the Editor Palladium: I am only a woman and can not be on the board of works so I want to en ter my protest here, if you will give me space. It is an outrage to have '. our park property abused by three ' men in a manner which" it has been and which is now contemplated.

"A few years ago, Addison C Har ris, of Indianapolis, in an article pub lished in a Philadelphia paper gave credit for the efficient school system of Indiana to the church schools of the Friends in Indiana. In the early set tling of the state the Friends were the first to organize graded church schools academies and a college at Richmond. Many of the teachers who went out to teach in the public schools of the state were educated in these schools and they thus tad great influence in shap ing the present very efficient public school system of the state."
