Here is -what the ordinance authorizing
the saie of the piant provides:
1. A sale to the trustee of an unknown
syndicate for a sum considerably
Jess than the original cost of
the plant. The value of the franchise
is absolutely ignored.
2. Maximum charges are not to be
increased, but provision is made
for other charges not now imposed.
S. No provision to give the city free
water. It will have to pay as other
consumers would do, which would envail
an additional tax upon the people
of $10,000 a year. In ten years
the syndicate owning the plant -would
collect from the city .as much money
as it had originally paid the city for
j the plant.
j 4. No provision binding Blizzard's
' assigns to furnish water at the pres|
eat rate. Ke is given authority to
j transfer the plant as he may see fit
i "without reservation and without In;
terference by the city." This practi!
caily vitiates all restrictions impos:

circles of a revival of the FrenchAmerican
( reciprocity: treaty, efforts
to encourage which are being made
by the American Chamber of Commerce
of Paris, according to an interview
with President Cacbard, of that
body, cabled by the Associated Press.
The French treaty and a nnmber of
others have been pigeonholed in the
Senate for some time, and there is no
expectation that they will be seriously
considered at this session of Congress.
Particular disappointment is felt
over the failure of the Senate to act
on the French treaty, as that was regarded
as decidedly favorable to
American products. In the present
temper of the Senate it is known
that the President will not make any
decided effort to negotiate any reciprocity
treaties, as he does not believe
there is any chance of their
ratification in the Senate.
