It is going to be a colossal case, and ex pensive. The Times at this juncture arises to suggest tha|t we LET THAT JURY KAHN ITS PAY. In other words, that the awards be left for.the jury to make. There is too much being said, in certain interested papers and on the streets, that is designed to influence in advance the opinions of the men and women who constitute, the panel called for that purpose. Various owners of lands have c >me running to The Times with com plaints against the appraisals prepared by the county's special counsel. The figures are far too low, they argue, to recompense them for their prop erty. Well, we're glad to see them and talk matters over, but we're willing to let the jury try this case, just so long anyhow as it stays sane and keeps one foot on the earth. The figures prepared by Attorney Lyle are the estimates of valuation prepared by one party to the suit. We presume in some cases they are low er, perhaps far lower, than the jury will allow. That is natural to suppose. On the other hand, if they were giving them out for public consumption, we presume the defendants' estimates of what their places are worth would bo, in sonic cases, far higher than wh.it those parties will eventually re ceive. That, too, is natural. It will be up to the jury to reconcile those two sets of figures in the fairest, ablest way it can. The Times hopes that the rights of the families actually living on that land, tilling it and making it their home, will receive every consideration. Hut while they must be allowed every dollar of value they can show their property to possess, the land sharks and speculators who have been holding large tracts in idleness, hoping to catch a flock of suckers or mulct the government, must not be treated with anything more than justice. They will try to show a lot of inflated value which it will be the jury's duty to prick. The thing for.the rest of us I<> do in the meantime is to sit back and see that fair play prevails and no publicity campaign for the land grafters gets by. * Mayor Fawcett lias been threatening, or promising, to start a municipal coal yard to bring fuel down to a reasonable price for this winter. We ap plaud the idea and hope ho does not waste any lime putting it info effect. Consequently, we take pleasure in introducing to Tacoma's mayor, B«»h Kpeer, mayor of Denver, who is doing a little job of fuel dictation after a fashion of his own. The Rockefeller and kindred corporations had been having a nice time runnin" the mining and selling of coal in Denver and had got the price up to $6.50 a i.hi, which was sheer robbery, considering the price at the mines, when Bob declared that he'd break that cinch. He contracted for the output of three mines near the city and Denver consumers are getting GOO tons of coal a day at $3.80. And particular pains is taken to see to it that it goes to the homes < - the workers. If the Denverite wants a couple of tons of this coal he applies, gives his home address, where he works, how many are in his family, AND WHAT HE EARNS A A MONTH. The first families that get city coal are those whose monthly income is lowest. Then the $100-a-month families are supplied. If the sup ply exceeds the demand for these, then families whose income is from $100 to $150 a month will be supplied, and when this list is taken care of any family can get municipal coal. This has broken the back of the coal monopoly in Denver. It is liable to break it all thru the state when other cities discover how easy it is to cut the price of coal in half. The families who really need the coal will get it. Those who can afford to pay the trust price will be taken care of later. The funny thing about this mayor whom we've just introduced, Mr. Fawcett, is that he had been a strong corporation man, anti-labor, anti-gov ernment by-the-people, and all that. But when Bob Speer became mayor, he learned what was being done to the people. When he went In for municipal fuel, tfie monopolists who thought that they owned his soul set up a great howl. A cut from $6.50 to $3.80 will make a monopolist howj every time. And Bob answered them this way, which will fit your case, Mr. Fawcett, when the « monopolists howl at you: "(Jentleinen, I have been charged with a lot of things, but I will not help put an extra ounce on the backs of the workers who already are carry ing all they «-<ui stagger under. You can do what you please; the poor families of Denver are going to have coal at cost this -winter if it costs me my job." No flower blooms in vain and somewhere in Nature's balance sheet is a great big asset built up by the beau tiful things of the gardens of the ages that just smiled Mid passed along.—A. D. Robinson. Those New York financiers aren't so awfully smart when the president of a big bank can go on stealing for 16 years and not be found out until after he's dead.
