DOLLARS AND CENTS.
To the Editor of the Sentinol:
111 a recent issue of your contempo
rary there appears an article written \
by William Jennings Bryan on the 1
subject of municipal ownership of 1
public utilities. The article is re
plete with quotations from the alleged '
utteriuß.s of Mr. Carter Harrison, who '
has just been nominated for the *
fourth time for mayor of the city of 1
Chicago. While Mr. Harrison poses 1
in the light of a disinterested advo
cate of muuicipapl ownership, lam *
of the opinion that facts will show
(Record facts, Mr. Editor) that his [
advocacy is nothing more than a mat- 1
ter of dollars and cents. Mr. Harri- 1
son’s administration has been notably '
one of the most corrupt iu history.
His alleged attempts to clean the city
of Chicago of the gambling element j
have amounted to nothing better than
so much blackmail. Gambling is still *
carried on openly, because the people
want it and are willing to paj for the '
privilege. To show how silly and 1
futile are the attempts of the Muni- *
cipal Leaguers of Grand Junction to
place Mr. Carter Harrison on record '
as an authority on municipal owner
ship. I will quote from some of the 1
leading Chicago papers on the subject.
The Tribune says:
“So far as things have gone on, the
city has paid two prices for its elec- 1
trie lights. The work of extension ‘
has been far from satisfactory. The *
aim and intent are to mako the city’s
government a paternal one, previdiug 1
light, heat, power, transportation, f
electrical and telephonic communica
tion. etc., thereby constituting a vast
machine with powers far greater
than ever wielded by Tammany, and (
giving opportunity for corruption on i
the biggest conceivable scale.’’
The Chicago Evening Journal says:
“So long as the advocates of muni
cipal government cannot keep the
streets in proper condition, it is not
worth while for them to extend the .
field of their inefficient work.’’ (
The New Wolrd of Chicago says: <
“There is a great deal of force in (
the argument which some of the dai
ly papers have advanced against the
municipal ownership of street rail
ways. gas plants, etc., in this country. 1
It is argued that if the city councils i
in this and other cities are so corrupt <
that they cannot be trusted to deal
I Resurrected! ]
THE GEO. BRINK TEA AND COFFEE COMPANY
Alicr a Rip Van Winkle Sleep, is at last awake. New d
Management. New Goods. Everything New.
B Having purchased the Geo. Brink & Co. Tea and Coffee business H
in this city I am prepared to offer my friends and patrons a com- B
i plete line of fresh goods of a quality and price to please the 3
1 most fastidious. The business will be continued under the name 3
9of Geo. Brink & Co. J - F - BYERS, Manager. -
t We guarantee everything we sell. □
houcstly with private corporations in
regard to these matters, it is hardlv
to be expected that they could deal
houestlv with the public, if they had
the management of such enterprises
in thier own hands. This really goes
to tiie root of the whole matter.’’
Now. Mr. Editor, the adoveate* of
municipal ownership claim that this
« ity should build aud operate its own
electric light Dlaut. and that the city
council will mod surely manage it
properly I would like to know why.
Will the vastness of the property so
stagger the moss-covered grafters and
hangers-on who have been living off
the city for years that their consciences
will suddenly bloom into sensitive
ness? Or will it only give them a
bigger quarry and an enlarged field
for their peculiar enterprises?
To conclude: Superintendent Bar
rett ot the municipal light plant of
Chicago reports that the street lamps
in that city cost $9(5.04 per annum.
When his accounts were audited it
was found that lie had neglected to
include the following items in the ac
tual cost of each lamp. Water.
$1.41: interest, $21.70, insurance $1.55.
depreciation, $37.51. thus bringing
the total cost of each lamp to $103.48
per year. It is also a well known fact
that the administration of Mr. Harri
son has fattened on municipal owner
ship for .years back, so it is no wonder
that he champions tho cause.
• I will iu later issues pursue this sub
ject further as the article in question
from the peu of Mr. Brvau is too vol
uminous to be disposed of iu a single

A FLYING HOTEL.
“The Golden State Limited’’ recent
ly placed iu service between Chicago
and California by the Rock Island
system is beyond doubt the most pal
atial train ever constructed. Bath
rooms, barber shop, library, dining
service, electric lights, electric fans,
in fact every contrivance imaginable.
The Rock Island was the first line
to establish low excursion rates be
tween the east and Colorado, and the
officials will not cease to exjieud every
effort to continue the work of inceas
iug the popularity of it* resort*. With
this iu view it will not be surprising
to see iu the very near future such
trains as “The Colorado Flyer.’’ and
the “Rockj* Mountain Limited’’ sim
ilarly equipped.
j One thing is certain there is never
auythiusg better than the Rock Island
service, and it 3 dining car system is
incomparable.
