To tlie Editor of The Sentinel:
Merely because some flaws can be
picked in the original contract by
which the Electric Light company
was granted its charter to furnish
Grand Junction with light, is no
reason why the whole system of light
ing by contract is of no account. Had
the comnauy been properly bound to
furnish good lights there would have
been no trouble today. Had there
been a clause inserted that the com
pany’s books should be open to inspec
tion and that a percentage of the pro
fits should be paid into the city treas
ury, there would be no howl about
“the hydra headed monster’’ which
is “sucking the life blood of the peo
Instead of that we aro in the throes
of the perennial scramble for office,
and are bound to be made a “shining
example ’ of by being the latest vic
tims of that Utopian folly, municipal
We are asked to look a’, the British
tramways and light plants, which are
so carefully controlled in the interests
of the public. What aro the facts?
The British tramways are paying into
the treamry less than $600,000 in the
form of taxes, or but 2 per cent on the
gross receipt* of $25,000,000, while
the steel railways of New York and
Massachusetts ure paying yearly $2,-
500,000 or 4.7 per cent, on gross re
ceipts of $50,000,000.
Here is an iuterediug light upon
the virtues and vice of rigid munci
pal control of corporate enterprises.
If forty years ago British munici
palities had said to private capital.
“Come in and help us make our cities
what they ought to be,” the British
tramways would today be earning
$200,000,000 gross instead of less than
one eighth of that sum, and could be
paying as taxes from $8,000,000 to
$10,000,000 into the public treasury
instead of a paltry SOOO,OOO.
This is not an exaggeration. Mr.
Editor, this is fact. “Record Fact.”
The figures stated are an underesti
ate rather than an overestimate as
it is well understood by all who have
the slightest knowledge of street rail
way finances and possibilities, in a
densely populated country like Great

oration of the electric plant today is a
disgrace to this community. It is not
economical or practical to operate
these industries by the municipality
There can be only one reason why it
should be done and that is to support
an army of politicians and their bang

for work and who aro of no service
to the industry they pretend to be en

Leadville, March 26.—Four Protes
tant churches were robbed today and
the alleged thief is now in jail. This
is the first time in the history of
Leadville that an attempt has been
made to enter a sacred edifice for the
sake of procuring plunder. The man
gives liis name as Walter Dickens
Thompson, alias T. A. Bryant, and
he has made a complete confession to
the iheritf. The man hails from
Cripple Creek where he claimed to be
a musician and also engage 1 as a drug
gist. Thompson did not secure very
valuable plunder. He helped himsell
to a number of Bibles, a clock, a bell
used by the Presbyterian Sunday
school and a violin, belonging to the
pastor of the Methodist church. When
arrested lie was found peddling Ox
ford teachers’ Bibles for 25 cents each.
Che violin he had placed in a pawn
shop, together with a large clock,
which he had taken from the Metho
dist church.

Social circles at Whitewater have
been greatly shocked at the seduction
of a young girl residing in that vicin
ity by tlie name of Downing, tho
daughter of a well known family
The young man responsible for the
downfall of tlie young girl was Claude
S. White, the sou of another promi
nent Whitewater family. The boy
bad enlisted in tlie servico-of Uncle
Sam. The warrant was sworn out by
the parents of the girl and the officers
of the U. S. Government vessel Perry
were communicated with aud the
boy’s arrest would have only been a
question time, but he received infor
mation tliut there was a warant sworn
out for him and he deserted two weeks
ago. His friend* in this city knew
of his whereabouts and an agreement
was enteied into by the father of
the vouug girl Downing and the young
man White, that the warrant should
l>e withdrawn if White would marry
the girl.
When the timo came for the cere
mony and the friends of young White
went to the Downing home, the father
dioved under tho nose of the young
man an agreement that he would pay
twenty-five dollars for tho support ol
tlie girl whom lie had seduced, but
at this White balked and would not
sign any argeemeut. In tho mean
time the warrant bad been passed back
to tlie officers on tho agreement that
voung White should marry the girl,
this being all the parents of the girl
had asked. Downing, when the
young man. White, refused to marry
his daughter asked the district attor
ney’s office to issue a new warrant,
but this was refused upon the promise
t hat Mr. Downing bad made an agree- ;
ment that if the officers of tho law
would bring young White back to
marry his daughter that he. Downing
would be satisfied.
When the refusal was made by
young White ho immediately boarded
a train and left for Sun Francisco to
report back as a deserter and to re
enter the service of tlie navy depart
ment of tho government.
llie matter l.as stirred up consider
able feeling at Whitewater and is a
matter of general gossip, both the
families of the young people being
old and prominent residents there.
