I Cannot See"
"Besides putting us to additional nnnecessary expense, be stated,
"the city Is Just Inconveniencing its citizens, and for what reason I can
not see." said Shorensteln.
We take it that the Light. Heat and Power Company Is playing a
pretty shrewd game not as clever as It might but then doing a rather
good stunt even for a public service corporation.
The situation to date is that the Light, Heat and Power Company
has been ordered not to place artificial gas in Its natural gas mainsT
The Light, Heat and Power Company has replied: "Alright very
well thank you we won't put artificial gaa In the natural gas mains."
The Light. Heat and Power Company has replied: "We don't care
anything about the gas mains for we are willing to Invest our money in
them to the extent of a few hundred thousand dollars and have no re
turns. The Light, Heat and Power Company has said: "The citizens are
doing us a great injustice and themselves an inconvenience."
Well if you were the Light. Heat
you say?
The game Is simply td evade another franchise by the simple pro
cess of trying to frighten the people into accepting any terms.
As far as the city is concerned It is perfectly willing for the Light,
Heat and Power Company to use the mains its parent company has
bought if ' .
If the company will be willing to take a modern franchise and lower
the rates of gas to a place where it will mean something to the average
man the ordinary consumer.
The simple fact ot the matter. Is that the city is in a tactical position
to make the L. 11. P. company come across or go to expense which it can
not afford to Incur which it never can incur and never will.
The situation means no unfairness on the part of the city, but merely
the necessary steps which too infrequently occur in public service corpor
ations for the citizens whose ancestors deeded away their rights for
nothing to come Into their own Inheritance.
The fact is that there has never been enough realization on the part
of the common every day man that he can have his day.
But here it is.
The only thing that the Light, Heat and Power Company can do by
its own admission is either to put down new pipes and incure all that ex
pense In addition to what it has already paid for the natural gas mains
or else to persuade the citizens that they are being too greatly inconven
ienced for temporary gain to stand by their chance.
On that proposition we will bet that the people of this city are willing
to go several winters without gas and fight this proposition to a stand
still rather than give In on a thing which will affect this town for a
long, long, time.
On that proposition we are willing to take a stand right now and as
long as this situation remains the same to the end that the city shall
stay by this proposition until it gets its franchise embodying all the mod
ern tendencies that the Palladium has stood for in the past and stands for.
On that proposition we have faith in the judgment of the people.
It is the people's turn and . all they have to do is to call this bluff.
This happens to be the thing that Mr. Shorensteln of the Light, Heat
and Power Company "cannot see."
He can't believe that the people of this town know enough about
this corporation game to play it to a standstill If we have to wait a whole
series of years to do it.
Mr. Shorensteln Is but lately come to this town and as such is entitl
ed to a welcome and indulgence but this public service proposition be
gan a long time before he came here and if we do not misjudge, will con
tinue for a time after he leaves us.
This being so whether Fred Shorensteln-Bees it or not this town Is
not going to be bluffed and he may as well save himself and his co'm
pany the dividends on the amount Invested in the natural gas mains by
writing to his company that there is only one way on which this ques
tion can be settled rightly and fairly.
We believe that the people of this town can deal fairly with the com
pany on this basis of a new franchise along the new lines of thought
which are striking in on every side commonly called conservation. The
people want to be guarded against what are purely and cimply monopoly
taxes and that means simply and purely gas rates over which they have .
no control.
There are several ways In which the problem can be settled but the
corporation game is too old for it to have any terrors in its bluff. The .
people of this town can afford to run to the whole limit of the five years
rather than give in to the franchise for twenty years or so which the com
pany tried to snare by false pretense through local capitalists last Jan
uary. And that Is the thing that Mr. Shorensteln cannot see.
Corporations and love have the same motto.
After all "At the time the matter first came up our attorney stated
we could use the mains and I believe we can."
After all why not go ahead?
"The people are demanding service."
Also the people are demanding certain other things.
As for inconveniencing the citizens
for twenty-five years than for one the
both instances.
As for the dealers in coal stoves, they might as well go around to
the association and tell them that It is just as well for them not to neg
lect reading the passage about the conspiracy in restraint of trade.
The price of artificial gas will not be raised September 1. All state
ments to the contrary are absolutely false.
It Is an axiom of any monopoly that it cannot charge more than peo
ple are willing to pay for it. Thanks very kindly though.
We are not saddened by the fact that a corporation which is unwill
ing to enter Into a new franchise which cost nothing to begin with, shall
be put to additional expense. ,
However there is a simple way

The Illustration had a chance to be demonstrated in the case of the

Speaking of Ohio, Charles Dick, the game warrior of the flowing hair
and gumshoe tread, visited President Taft at Beverly to convey to him
the cheerful information that there was to be "an old-fashioned Republi
can fight" in Ohio this fall, and "an old-fashioned Republican victory."
Just what the Senator meant by "an old-fashioned Republican fight.
may be Inferred from a newspaper dispatch which tells of his enthusi
asm over the discovery In a Beverly barber shop of two pictures printed
on advertising calendars. One showed Lincoln addressing the soldiers
the other the raising ot the Stars and Stripes at New Orleans. Copies of
these stirring engravings the Ohio leader Insisted he must have to cir
culate In the campaign. Thua would he put to flight the treasonable hosts
of tha Democrats, free the slaves, save, the Union." and have himself re
turned to the United States Senate. Contrast this attitude with that of a
Western Insurgent who writes concerning a recent canvass in his State:

Hems Gathered In
From Far and Near
The Smugglers.
From the New York Times.
It is not, perhaps, the fact that the
wealthy family now suffering from the
humiliation of public detection in an
attempt to smuggle owe their wealth
largely to the profits of a highly pro
tected industry that first suggests
comment in relation to the case. Much
might be said of the habitual inclina
tion of protectionists to momentarily
accept free trade ideas when they
become importers on their own ac
count. But whatever modifications
are tariff laws may undergo under the
Influence of enlightenment, it is not
likely that Jewelry will ever be ad
mitted free. A tariff for revenue will
still be enforced and the duty on furs,
laces, diamonds and pearl necklaces
will always be high. The remark of
the head of the afflicted family on the
pier that "an American citizen ought
to be allowed to bring in anything,"
may be taken as the emotional expres
sion of a moment of irresponsibility.
He probably does not think that Amer
ican citizens should be permitted to
bring in farm Implements. We have
spoken of this family as afflicted.
Their present plight certainly compels
sympathy. If a large proportion of
their fellow-beings in the same agree
able walk ot life are not sorry for
them they ought to be. The habit of
petty smuggling has been quite com
mon among wealthy Americans who
often go abroad.
Population of Philadelphia.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
There appears to bo some uneasi
ness in certain quarters as to. what
the forthcoming' census figures will
show for Philadelphia, though for
what reason it is difficult to imagine.
Philadelphia has other and higher am
bitions than the expansion of its popu
lation by the arbitrary annexation of
the surrounding country, the exped
ient upon which Chicago chiefly relies
to place itself in the position of "sec
ond city" of the country, or by the
encouragement of those methods of
housing by which density of popula
tion is secured at the cost of comfort
and health. .It has no desire to secri
fice its position as a city of homes.
Its citizens will await the official com
putation with unruffled complacency,
knowing well that the growth of the
city is not to be measured by the sta
tistics collected within the legal lim
its of the municipality.
Campfire to Conflagration.
From the New York Tribune.
A 'cartoon in a recent issue of the
Spokane Spokesman-Review, with the
caption "Haunted," showing a terror
stricken m?.n with a score of accusing
hands pointing at. him, and bearing
the label "The Careless Camper," im
plies not merely a possible but a very
probable origin of a conflagration
which has destroyed millions of dol
lars' worth of property and a large
number of human lives. No better
recipe for a great fire in any exten
sive wooded section could be asked
than a dry season and the embers of
a dying fire. A gust of wind or per
haps a trail of leaves from the glow
ing coals to other imflammable mater
ial Is all that would be necessary to
start In an hour what a thousand
trained men could not stop In a week.
The Emperor at It Again.
From the Chicago Post.
. Kaiser. .Wilhelm's long silence has
not apparently, been productive of
any new ideas. His speech at Koen
igsberg was as true to the Hohenzol
lern instinct as the proverbial needle
to the pole. In fact, the emperor
seems to have relapsed a little. Ot
late years he had learned to say we,
us and ours In a generous, Inclusive
sort of way, but the la,te cabled re
ports of. the. Koenigsberg address
would Indicate that he has returned
to the conception of I, me and mine.
This, of course, is the true Hohen
zollern attitude. . i" ?
Loneliness Averted.

Some Striking Paragraphs From
RooseveVis Osawatamie Speech
The true friend of property, the true conservative, is he who in
sists that property shall be the servant and not the master of the
I stand for the square deal. But when I say that I am for the;
square deal I mean not merely that I stand for fair play under the.
present rules of the game, but that I stand for having those rules
changed so as to work for a more substantial equality of opportune
ity, and of reward for equally good service. , "
The Constitution guarantees protection to property aad we must
make that promise good. But it does not give the right to suffrage
to any corporation.
It is my personal beUef that the same kind and degree of con
trol and supervision which should be exercised over public service
corporations should be extended also to, combinations which control -necessaries
of life, such as meat, oil, and coal, or which deal in
them on an important scale.
I believe that the officers, and especially the directors of cor'
porations. should be held personally responsible when any corpora
tion breaks the law.
No man should receive a dollar unless It has been fairly earned.
Every dollar received should represent a dollar's worth of service
rendered. The really big fortune, the swollen fortune, by the mere
fact of its size acquires qualities which differentiate it in kind as well
as in degree from what is possessed by men of relatively small ,
means. - . . t
One of the fundamental necessities in a representative govern
ment such as ours is to make certain that the men to whom the
people delegate their power shall serve the people by whom they
are elected, and not the special interests. I believe that every Na
tional officer, elected or appointed should be forbidden to per
form any service or receive any compensation directly or
indirectly from interstate corporations; and a similar pro
vision could not fail to be useful within the states.
