Tho Hamilton Boys Yon Know
Take you heod of
this As sure as you
llvethe producers are
the feeders and cloth
iers of the world
From the number of parties
making application for as fran
chises it would appear that Pal
estine is the most inviting field
in the State A fow days ago a
franchise was granted the Federal
Gas company after that concern ernor
had been working for about one
year for it This franchise was
granted after a most thorough
investigation by a special com
mittee appointed by the mayor
which went to Texarkana at the
expense of the gas company and
made a thorough examination of
the plant there owned and con
trolled by this company As soon
as the franchise was granted the
report was circulated that Mr
McGoldrick the companys rep
resentative had offered to sell to
the electric light plant This the
gentleman vigorously denied to
the Heiuld men to the council
men and again last night de
clared such a report was utterly
untrue that his company was an
independent concern and would
build and operate a plant inde
pendently Who started such a
report and for what purpose
Now since the granting of this
franchise a Mr Williams claim
ing to come from Chicago has
fiiedfau application for a fran
chise offering as an inducement
much cheaper gas than the Fed
eral Gas company promises Still
another concern butts into the
field tbe Texas Gas and Improve
ment company represented by
people coming from Houston In
cidentally it has been suggested
by more than one citizen that
Houston is the home of Col Geo
W Burkiit and that the Colonel
is the genius loci of the Palestine
Electric plant or in other words
that he owns the controlling stock
and that the electric light plant
does not wish to see a gas plant
installed in Palestine Be that as
it may the Herald does not
make the charge It only cau
tions the council to proceed with
care and before granting fran
chises to others weigh carefully
the facts and do not do a thing
that may defeat the movement to
give the city a gas plant Alder
man Ozment submitted a list of
questions to bo propounded these
franchise seekers at the council
meeting last night Some of them
were quite pertinent and should
be answered to the entire satisfac
tion of the council before grant
ing another gas franchise While
the resolution was under discus
sion two of the three aldermen
composing the ordinance commit
tee opposed this resolution and
when submitted to a vote the
resolution was lost
Competition is a good thing
when it does not destroy These
matters dimund the most careful
and searching consideration
The time of year is now rapidly
npproachingwhen we may expect
to hear a great deal about good
roads The great need for them
is never felt until these old red
hills become all butimpassible
then the need is very much em
emphasized
Is fixing the salaries of city of
ficers for the ensuing year City
Attorney lohnsons salary was
raised from 10 to 50 a month
Even that is a very small salary
for an attorney to fill such an im
portant position And Attorney
Johnion i worth more money

The city council has again fixed
the date for holding the election
to determine whether or not Pal
estine shall issue bonds to the
amount of 20000 for a new
school building for the Fourth
Ward and for improving the
other school buildings of the city
The date designated is January
18th 190G This is a most im

THEATRICAL
It Is a high coropllmont In Itself to
say that Mr Hanford did not disap
point the high expectations but on
the contrary even surpassed them in
his excellent and finished performance
of tbe Shakespearean comedy More
than this it may be said in justice to
Mr Hanford that no other actor seen
in Washington has so thoroughly
realized the part of the adventurous
and commandingPetrucbio His con
ception and Interpretation of tho rolo
bore tbe impress of Individuality He
Interpreted the character with refresh
ing spirit and dash and entered Into
full appreciation of Its ovory mood
Much applause was aroused during the
performance and at tho close In re
sponse to insistent handclapping Mr
Hanford appeared boforo tho curtain
and told the audionco in an appro
priate speech how highly he valuod
their hoarty expression of approval
Not only was Mr Hansfords work
of an excellent character but that of
every prominent member of tho cast
was thoroughly acceptable and the
entire performance proceeded with
commondable spirit and vim As tho
shrewish Katherlne Miss Drofnah
shared tho honors with Mr Han6ford
giving an intelligent dolineation of tho
part and evidencing proper apprecia
tion of its requirements bothjn tbe
violent outbursts of temper and In her
display of gentlo womanly qualities

completed Washington D O Even
