MOVING TO NEW HOME Monday morning wo begin to move into our new dnyllght building, cor Her of tbe Red Cot.

There lias been such a tremendous and uproarious response to efforts of the city press to promote an organ ized movement for greater Minefield, these suggestions are offered as to method. Frst *. No member of the club is expected to exert himself in the least. Ill- should never attend a meeting, or spend a cent. That would give the whole thing a mercenary air. which would be intolerable. If lie wished to attend a meeting, a carriage should be provided, together with theatre tickets Second: No measure should be adopted that would be, even in semblance, op posed to any individual's personal interests For instance: If it should be proposed to secure a furniture factory for Minefield, and a member of the club in the furniture trade thought It would even remotely af fect his business, then not only Mould tlx* proposition lie defeated. Imt even the proposer should he in laitlly expelled from the club, and given twenty-four hours to get out of town Third: Kvery member hould lie guaranteed by a good and sufficient bond, that no rival or eompvtitor in business should derive any benefit or advantage whatever from the movement. Fourth): JSTn member should he expected to favoi the location of any Industry factory, or other enterprise, in Minefield or vicinity, without direct, Immediate advantage to himself. Kxample; A member in the retail trade should he guaranteed by a cash deposit that the employes of such factory or In dustry would purchase goods no where, save at his store. Fifth: No member of one political party should favor anything a mem her of another political party should propose, unless lie is sole beneficiary of tin* measure, and then only for a substantial cash consideration. Sixth: If a proposition he submitted, which though in Its nature is favora ble to the member, yet he should oppose the same, except he lie tlx* originator. Seventh: Absolute se crecy should he preserved by every member No member should do anything, say anything, or reveal any knowledge that could possibly benefit anybody hut himself Finally, brethren, let your watch word be “dog eat flog.” My carefully following these suggestions, you will ‘•red here on the Allegheny sky line a magnificent municipality that will |*e the wonder and tlx* despair of all hermit peoples throughout the ages. THE WARNING TO STANDPATTERS The defeat of seine prominent standpatters" and the very narrow escape of some others will lie apt to shake the confidence ,,f the Uepnle llcan majority of next congress in Ho- stability or their position Mayor Tom Johnson of Cleveland I- a recognized exponent oT the munl ipa| ownership policy, and these are •lie conditions which he lays down in hi article in Moody's magazine for onh undertakings; No enterprise should lie considered i subject for municipal ownership unless It (It rests upon special priv ilege; (2) is nf sttch a nature that competition cannot enter with bene HI to the people at large; (J) re quires a very large expenditure of eapital for a plant and equipment; ami ft) contemplates a performance of Its functions for a long period of time.
