Oaly ttafJxmrtaaf, ; simlertess tmtoml is Hi tut mm ; THE "WIDE OPEN" SUNDAY. Public sentiment is Justly arrayed against the proposition of permitting the five cent theaters of the city to operate on Sunday. This may appear as an inconsistency on the part of the Palladium, which favored legalizing Sunday baseball. And it would be an Inconsistency were it not for the fact that there is a vast difference in the arguments .between the two. Sunday baseball affords an oppor tunity for the man who has to work the other six days of the week, to wit ness good clean sport and be in the pure air. It means recreation under the moat healthful conditions. That can not be said for the five cent theaters. Where the baseball fan is amused for two hours or more In the pure air. the five cent theater "bug" is entertained for about twenty minutes in a room that Is artificially ventilated. ' From this it can be seen there is no comparison in the benefits of the two. And as to putting the proposition on a basis of "Sunday opening if you use our electricity" the City of Richmond can not afford to do business on that plane.' GIVE FESTIVAL South Side Improvement As sociation Liberally Helps Along Fall Event. OTHER GIVERS GENEROUS Merchants and manufacturers of the city have contributed very liberally to the Fall Festival association for the second annual festival to be given Oc tober 6-7-S. The committee which is out collecting subscriptions are mora confident of raising the necessary $8,- 000 than they were last year of real Uing the needed $4,000.- The differ ence In the amount to be spent is suf ficient, alone, to show the better qual ity of this year's festival. The South Side Improvement asso ciation has contributed $50 to the fes tival. The finance committee mem bers who have solicited the South Side Improvement association have " found the association at all times most wil ling to assist ; in any undertaking of a public nature which will be of benefit to this city. ; A DAHLIA CARNIVAL Christian Church Ladies Milton Make Plans. of Hilton, Ind., Sept. 11.

A missionary convention will be held in the M: E. church of this place on the afternoon and evening of September 22. Several interesting speakers from various parts of the Richmond dis trict will be present and take part in the program. The object of this meet ing 1 to better acquaint the people with the , benevolent workings of the church, and place before them the actual results accomplished and also the further needs. - $50 THE METER QUESTION. Whatever else may be said on the present agitation for the abolition of charges for the meters of the Richmond City Water Works. It is certain that that company has brought the trouble on itself. The present agita tion it win be remembered, originated in a great part from the Pallad ium's statement of the profit which the company makes on its meters. Some time ago we showed that the company makes a profit in the neigh borhood of 200 per cent on its meters. It Is absolutely certain that the citizens of Richmond are without doubt opposed to the Richmond City Water Works Company. If it were a matter of public sentiment meter rent would be done away with im mediately. ? And the reason public sentiment is opposed to the Water Works company is entirely because of the excessive rates for water and meter rent. We say water rates and meter rent for there is a close connection between the two. What the Water Works company makes in profit on the consumers who do use meters it also makes off those who use water on the flat rate plan. In fact it seems probable that the company makes more on the flat rate pro rata than it does on the meter users if not it would be anaious to install meters in every house. ItSiaa advice from its legal department to show that any one class of consumers may be forced to use meters. (In fact several years ago the company showed this point very nicely by insisting that all the drug stores in town use meters.) The Water Works Company has claimed that it cannot be forced to give the people meters for nothing. That is not the question. The question is whether the company should be allowed to charge excessively for the use of meters. The question is whether 200 per cent, profit on meters and a cor responding profit on flat rates should continue. A Lambert meter (such as is in use here) costs installed about $8.00. A meter lasts at least eight years. A meter therefore costs the company about $1.00 for each year. It charges $3.00 per year. Either the meter rental should be reduced to the neighborhood of one dollar per annum or there should be no meter rental and an actual defi nite allowance made in water rates based on the actual, cost of meters as found by examination of the company's books and other sources of information. It stands to reason that the company can afford to put in meters in every place at cost because It will save water waste. If the excessive profit is done away with, and meters are provided at cost the small con sumer will be benefited also. He will pay for the water he actually uses plus the actual cost of measurement. It must be borne in mind that the company is entitled to the cost of measuring water but not the profit of measuring it. The Municipal Light plant is an excellent illustration of what we mean. The city does not charge for meter rental but the cost of meters actually enters into the rate at which the city can sell electricity. If you will think it over the merchant who sells you anything really charges you for measuring what you buy but he is not getting excessive profit on the fact that he hires clerks to measure the goods for you. If City Attorney Study has found that meter rental is illegal let the thing be abolished. At all events let the excessive profit be taken away from the com pany. It is not entitled to profit for meter rental. It is the 200 percent profit and not the item of cost that the public and the Palladium object to. THE SCRAP BOOK He ". o.J by the Weight. A student of au English college had a barrel of ale deposited in his room, contrary, of count, to rule and usage. He received n summons to appear be fore the president, who said: "Sir, I urn iuforuied that you hare a barrel of ale iu your room." "Yea. sir." "Well, what explanation can you make?" "Why, the fact is, sir, my physician advises me to try a little each day as a tonic, and. not wishing to go to the various places where the beverage U retailed, I concluded to have a barrel taken to ray room." "Indeed! And have you derived any benefit from the use of it?" "An. yes, sir. When the barrel was first taken to my room I could scarcely lift it. Now can carry It easily." Let Go! "Hold fast!" That splendid motto ha many battles won When linked with noble purpose to earn the world's "well done." But one or equal Import for all shrewd men to Know Is when to quit and have the grit to then and there "let so." Have you lost your coign of vantage? Have you slipped Into a rut? It's no d later ace to change your base be to re the wires are cut. It bespeaks' the wily general to outwit a stubborn foe. Don't aland your ground when you have found 'twill pay you to let go. Or.

"Say noth ing. ' Be a good lad. tbat's all." Then the caddie could no longer re strain himself. The kindly thought which lay at the bottom of bis heart broke through. "Please, sir," be cried.

"1 do. sir." replied the sergeant. "1 was in tbe town last night when 1 beard some one bellowing and roar ing songs about 300 yards away, i went to the spot and saw tbe prisoner Private Jones singing at tbe top ot his voice." "And you could bear him 300 yards away?" asked the colonel. "Yes. sir." "Well, what have you to say. Pri vate Jones?" continued the colonel turning to the prisoner. "Please, sir," said Private Jones, "1 was only bumming." Staggering the Lecturer. In an English village schoolroom last winter a lecturer from a neighboring town was holding forth on matters as tronomical. His audience was inclin ed to be skeptical, and there was quite a flutter when tbe lecturer spoke of the distance between tbe earth and the moon. "That feller's a fule," whispered the village wiseacre to bis next door neigh bor, "and Aw'll prove it when 'e'sdone spouting! Accordingly when the lecture came to an end tbe old villager rose to bia feet and declared bis Intention of "ax ing a question." "Very well; fire a way, smiled the lecturer. "Wot Aw wants to know is. How far is it frae here to X.? mentioning the name of another little village at some distance. Really. gasped the lecturer, "I couldn't tell you. I've never been to N." "Just soar came the triumphant re tort. "Then hoo mony toimes baa ta been to the moon? Vanity and Conscience.

I know an eminent Greek professor who could not reckon his class fees. Faraday had. I believe, no gift for mathematics. Darwin declared that he never understood an equation. I ques tion if Isaac Newton could have passed any examination in literary or aesthetic subjects, with his idea that poetry was Ingenious nonsense and statuary only stone dolls. It is a moot question if Napoleon Bonaparte would have passed a matriculation in French. I shrewdly suspect that neither Bonaparte nor Wellington would shine in a military academy examination.
