Entered In tbe Palestine Texas Postolllce as SecondClass Mall Matter
Published Every Afternoon Sunday Excepted
In todays Herald will be found the
full text of Hon T M Campbells
speech delivered at Athens today It
Is clear concise and powerful deal
ing with the real issues of the cam
paign In it will be found food for
thought and very little in it for even
bis opponents to criticise
There is much in that speech that
forces tbe thought upon the reader
that Tom Campbell is a true desciple
of the late lamented ExGov J S
Hogg tbe truest friend the people or
Texas ever had Tom Campbell Is
just such a friend to the great masses
of tbe people of Texas Unswerved
and unswerving he will e > er be found
fighting the battles of the masses
raising the cry of alarm at every
danger In his speech he outlines
some of the grave dangers that are
threatening the State of Texas today
and these questions aie the real Is
sues of what is to be one of the
most memorable campaigns since the
historical Hogg and Clark campaign
in which the Illustrious Hogg and the
people of Texas came out tbe victors
Read the speech It will do you
The Herald hasbad tbe privilege
of reading a copy of a letter from Col
Geo Burkitt anent the Electric Light
Company franchise which for impert
inence takes the whole bakery An
alderman of the city had timidly sug
gested that the company In conside
ration of the granting of the proposed

this As sure as you

lers or the world
Among freemen
there should be no
masters but Justice
and duty and love of
right and fellowman
fifty year franchise should donate two
of three arc lights to the citys use
considering the fact that the fran
chise carries with it a proposed con
tract for arc lights covering a period
of ten years at so much per The
Colonel scouts the idea and says the
company will do no such thing that
it does not owe the city anything
The Herald wanted to stay out of
this controversy for the owners of
the plant are Its close personal
friends but to save its life It cannot
do so and feel that it Is doing right
by the people of Palestine whom It
ever tries to serve The paper does
not wish to do anything that will hurt
the property rights of any one much
less the rights of a friend but as a
public journal It has a higher duty
to perform So let us analyze just
one feature of that proposed fran
chise Mr Burkitt says the company
owes Palestine nothing and that It
does not propose to give the city a
single llghL tfow the proposed fran
chise proposes to fasten upon the city
a ten year ocntract for arc lights at
approximately 10000 Ten thousand
dollars for the right to grant this
company a fifty year franchise A
ten year monopoly to this company to
furnish the city with lights Ten
thousand dollars to be paid to this
company in ten years whether the
city wants the lights or noL A thou
sand dollars a year for street lights
even if another company should come
In and propose to light tbe city free
of cost
The Herald Is not arguing that the
city does not need the lights On the
contrary the lights are needed ana
that badly But is that the beat bar
gain tbe city can drive Is It real
true that If this franchise is cnin
the company v ill owe the city n
ing will be under no obligation
If Is a fifty year franchise reall
no value to this company which sei
it This should be a matter of y
and take fiom this papers stan
point A fifty year franchise is cfit
tainly a very valuable thing anu
worth more than the mere asklnj
Perhaps the Colonel was Just
tie hasty At least the Herald W
suggest that the council be no
hasty In granting this franchise In
