The City Council should turn
down the proposition to sell the
citys gas stock under any circu arY I
stances It is one of the few city
investments that yields a profit
besides it enables the city to com
pel the Gas Company to keep with I
in the limits of its charter and 1
give the public light and fuel in i
all parts of the city at reasonable 5
rates Finally it is but the precursor
cursor of a scheme of speculator
to gobble up all the good invest 1
ments of the city If successful it 1
will be followed by an effort to
have the city sell its water stock
turning the waterworks over to a
syndicate and next the Louisville
Nashville and other railroad
stocks owned by the city Aside
from the protection to the people
by the city being a stockholder in i
these public utilities these enter
prises are getting past the non 1
dividend stage and beginning to
pay a profit which will increase
year by year Hence speculators
want them now The people who
for years have paid taxes to obtain
this stock for the city are entitled
to this profit and also to the pro I
tection from extortion likely if those
concerns become the property of in i 1
dividual owners Squelch the
scheme in its incipiency
There is one provision of our
tariff laws of which no one has dis
approvfed lIfor
ure te = = u
retaliation o na
lion and unequal tariffs against t
American products and goods im
ported to other countries The
cause of this was the stringent in
spection laws of France and Ger
many that excluded American I
pork from the ports of those coun
tries because of the panic due to
the prevalence of trichinae pro
dated it was claimed by diseased
pork Pork being one of our leading
exports and its exclusion seriously
n affecting pur foreign trade the sub
ject was soon forced to the atten
tion Of the Government President t
Cleveland formally protested and l
warned France and Germany that
the inspection laws must be modi
fled so as not to exclude American
meals or this Government would
jretaliate by excluding from our
ports French wines etc and Ger
man sausage beet sugar etc Such I
action on the part of our Govern
ment would practically deprive the
merchants and producers of those
countries of the American market t
and their Governments of large
revenues derived from exports
Both Governments promptly prom
iaed to modify their inspection laws
and France did so at the next meet
ing of its National Assembly
the German Government urged
Its Parliament to amend the inspec
tion laws but it failed to pass
President McKinley was about to I
put into effect his predecessors i
plan of exclusion but on the ear
nest pita of the German Govern
ment and commercial bodies de
f the matter to give them an
5 t other > opportunity to amend the in
spection laws That the Govern
ment and merchants and manu
factonm did make an earnest ef
l fort to comply with the American
demand is true but Parliament 1
ro again rejected the bill The lfiI I

Americaya meats enjoy a monopoly

Now the German Govterument I
and business intererts of Crtrmanf i

After six months of war strain
ing every resource with over 200
000 men at the cost of millions of
money and fully 20000 men the
English have broken the monotony
of defeat with one victory over thee
Boers Gen Cronje surrendered
to Gen Roberts last Tuesday morning
ning with about 3000 men after re
sisting for ten days the attacks of >
40000 troops with ten batteries
This seems also to have forced thee <
easeBoers to raise the siege of Lady
smith which was relieved by Bui l
ler last Thursday It was never
then re
was cause for English jubilation n
because the tide of disaster hade <
sebeen checked if nothing else The <
anticipated results of this victory
however are not materializing and
the jubilation first followed by
surprise now with apprehension i
The Boers are not demoralized or
disposed to give up because of this
reverse have not abandoned im

tory by any other move being reo
sisted by intrenched Boers at every
In fact Cronjes desperate stand i
with a few thousand men holding
Gen Roberts army back for two
weeks seems to have been the most
effective strategy of the entire war
Through Cronje and his army were
captured the Boers gained time to
concentrate forces fortify positions
and prepare to resist any further
advance and of this they seem to
have taken the fullest advantage
and present a line of defense which
means continuous fighting for every
inch of advance for the British i
forces however powerful they may
aid d
fortified it before he was surround l
ed He held it despite bombard l
ment and investigation since t heby
surrender reveals that his loss was
small and that his surrender was
caused by a rise in the river tender
ing his position untenable it being
in the bed and under the banks of
a bend in Modder river so located
that the English heavy artillery fire
was almost without effect The 1
surrendered force is about 3000 I
with 5000 small arms only four
cannon of small caliber few officers
and none of Cronjes staff That
he had a larger force with several
batteries of artillery when first at
tacked is known and they escaped
in spite of the cordon of English
What is to be the next move what
the force of the Boers that Roberts
and Buller must now meet are the
uncertainties That he can not
make a move without heavy fight j
ing against a Spree fully deter
mined and better prepared than
ever to resist is ° the only think i

The American Newspaper Pub J
lishers Association at their meetinr tt t
in New + e York decided to endeavor i
to settle presentkbor l troubles and I I
prevent them in future by arbitra II
a 1
tion and to that end appointed a I
standing National Committee of
Arbitration composed of Alfred
Cowles of the Chicago Tribune M
J Lowenstein of the St Louis Star
and Herman Ridder of the New r
York Staats Zeituug This is a
step in the right direction and If I f
honestly carried out will be pro
ductive of benefit to publishers and
employes alike There are but few
open ruptures now pending between
newspaper publishers and their em
ployes and these were caused by
the refusal of the publishers to ar
bitrate The move of the associa
tion will meet with the appro
val and cooperation of the Inter
15national Typographical Union t heto
principal labor organization in
atvalved which has been striving f or
ears to induce publishers to do
yearsJust what the newspaper associa
stion has decidedagree to settk
all grievances by conference and
arbitration Where the union has
succeeded in inducing local pub
selishers to accept such agreement
differences are peacefully and satis
factorily adjusted there have beet
no strikes or lockouts and pub
lishers and employes are mutually
benefited by the good order and
harmony prevailing
