important and to a great extent un
partisan elections - usually held in
the spring. It might be . advisable
to provide that municipal elections
in the larger cities like Cincinnati,
Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo
should be held in the fall, but oth
erwise the spring elections might
better be lelt as they are. "
Senator Williams' proposed con
stitutional amendment embodies a
plan for holding elections that will,
we think, be generally commended.
It is in line with a reform that the
Plain Dealer has been laboring
long time to bring about, and the
amendment as proposed will, if
submitted, receive popular indorse
ment, it is a lair plan, hon-parti
sari and ought to succeed on its
New York will have its beer : and
it is estimated by the Sun that
there are 6,000,000 barrels of beer
consumed annually in the city,
The brewers receive $8 a barrel for
this beer, less a discount to the
dealers ranging from 16 to 20.
Supposing all to receive the high
est discount, which would allow
for an occasional bad debt, the re
ceipts of the brewers would aggre
gate ij38,4UU,U00. This beer is now
substantially all furnished by the
members of the Brewers' Exchange.
The sum stated is what the dealers
pay the manufacturers for it. But
the price to the consumer is vastly
more. The dealer in retailing his
keg of beer expects to double his
money. An expert beer jerker will
get from a keg three times its cost,
while exceptional cases are found
where four-told the first cost is re
ceived. But allowing the sale by
the glass to be merely double
the cost by keg or barrel, and it is
seen that the beer drinkers, of New
York pay $76,800,000 annually for
this single article "of refreshment.
Dear brethren of the press it is
about time that the "$7,000 a day
pension" chestnut should be lain to
rest.- We plead guilty to starting
the thing several months ago, but
by a mistake of the compositor our
rough estimate of $7,000 per hour
was made to read "$7,000 per day."
This statement was caught up by
our exchanges, and at present there
are twenty-eight of these journals,
containing our little wane copied
verbatim and with credit. We
trust that these papers, as a matter
of simple justice to their thousands
of readers who have read the article
will correct the error. This Govern-
ment paid m pensions last year $63-
404,864.03, whickis $170,972.20 for
every day in the year, Sundays in-
eluded; or $7,237.99 per hour for the
year, counting twentjwour hours
to the day and 365 days to the year.
