The affirm 'I re wii taken 'Roaewater, editor of Th Omaha Daily Bee, and the. negative by Lieutenant Cahoon, aecretary of the National Electric Light association. In Mr. Rosewater's paper the futility of competition aa a regulative force to re press the inevitable tendency of monopoly In electric lighting and to prevent extor tlonate charge waa clearly pointed out. From statls'lcs compiled by the commis sioner of labor for the federal government he showed that the financial caving result ing from municipal ownership il sub stantial and verified by the experience of many American cities. While admitting that the statistic at hand ate not all that la desired, the superiority tt the munl olpally owned plants over the private cor porations In the matter of aheap and effi cient service, both to the fhblle snd to private consumers of alectrh lighting, Is. supported by all the fact and figure. A to the contention that municipal own ership would drag the elnctrlc lighting service Into politics, he naked bow the sub ject could be dragged further into politics than It now Is under the system of private franchise grants. In all the disclosures of municipal corruption In various cities throughout the country during the last tew years the most flagrant cases of bribe giving have arisen out of attempts to pur chase franchises from venal public offi cials, while no Important example of dis honesty has been uncovered In any munici pal lighting plant once installed. The question Is no longer between municipal ownership and competitive private enler prise, , but between municipal ownership and municipal control; but the beat term enforcible under municipal control are less effective and less satisfactory than under municipal, ownership. -Air. Cahoon said In part: Experience of l alcaa-a. Each community or municipality may do aa tt seems beat in the matter of lighting its streets; may either enter upon the busi ness Itaelf or contract with a private corpo ration to furnish tt with the neceseury lights. The great majority of cities In this country still continue to let out the con tracts for this work to private corpora tions and on the whole this had worked bailttfactorlly. The big plant In Chicago Is only doing about lit per cent better than the average of the small plants throughout the state, when we might fairly look for to per cent. "In other words, If by operating a big plant , with approximately a capacity of ft.uuO . lamps, It cannot show a better economy i than 12 per cent over the average country plant W the same state, we may fairly as- aert that this plant has failed to effect any t navIng to the city by "operating Ha own . pianti ' it we municipalise electric light plants we i'.teke away the incentive to progress to ward m. cheaper method of production and a cheapening of the price accordingly, for it Is a well known fact that where munici palities have started into any such enter prise, so far aa they were concerned prog- . leaa ceased.

' ' j . t Today the old electric light companies are heavily capita. lsd. not from Injecting j water Into their securities but from the loot that they have paid the usual penalty tor entering a new nald. - They paid hlgn .prices for the original apparatus. In a thort time this had to be replaced by a better grade and this, in turn, has had to be replaced by modern apparatus. What proms were made were promptly paid out in dividends, and nothing waa set aside for , tne replacement of apparatus. Depreciation was never thouiiht of. hence tho burden on the electric light plant is much heavier man on u.y outer Jorm ot manufacturing ' plant We do not want to ston Drosress In the electrical fields and fall behind the world . which we are now leading. We want, ou .everything possible to reach the maximum of economy in production and diki.i v..!ui. ot electricity, so that Ita tn iraj- be .reduced to a point where even the Smallest storekeeper and ths poorest family can -afford to use it. Such a result can be ac complished only by leaving this In the ' hanos of private companies and by the municipality helping the electrlo light plant ,ln every way possible. , " ; ,, taestloa la Oa of Coat. I think the great trend of all arguments on the municipal ownerahiu question in the past has been along the Unas as to whether the municipal plant can be operated so as to furnish lights for a city at a leas coat than .the existing company can furnish themi 1 say .frankly that the municipal -' plant cannot luniiah light at as low a oust, all things considered, aa the city can obtain from the local private company. The day of secrecy in the matter of ac counting by electrlo- light companies has gone by and there Is not a single modern, , up-to-date plant In the United Slates whion Is not ready and willing to show tne municipality Just what it costs to furnish tbem street lights. Here s a comparatively new Industry In process of development.

If 1 am right In my belief, then the question of municipal ownership of electric light plants disappears. I The- discussion' which followed was par ticipated in by Kdward E.

In Pennsylvania during the cenvus year the gross gas rrotlt. that is, the difference between lncomiand all operating expenses except depreciation, was 1 cents a thou sand feet; in Michigan, IK cents; Iowa, 11 cents; New Hampshire. 12 cents; Illinois, is cents; Missouri, 48 cents; Maryland, (7 cents; Colorado, M cents; Oregon, 87 cents; Mnaaarhuaetta, 87 cents. The census report shows fifteen municipal gas plants in the t'nited States. They sre at a disadvantage as to else in cost of manufacture. The average of municipal gas In the census year was 42 cents a thousand, and for private ownership gas $1.04. in the I'nited States. Leaving the five largest cities out of consideration, the average price of gas from private plants was Si .34, or 32 cents higher than municipal plants, though these latter had less than half large an aver age output.

Feb. 2 Before a crowd such as few previous prlie fights have attracted Young Corbett and Eddie Hanlon battled tonight, in the Mechanic's pavilion, for the featherweight champion ship of the world. For twenty rounds the two fought like demons, each striving to finish the contest with a knockout, and then, after all, the referee declared the fight a draw. From the seventh until the twentieth It was a glve-snd-take contest, and to the pro Hanlon honse present it seemed as If the decision would be his. But Referee Grsney thought otherwise. To the cheering multitude which thronged the ringside It looked, almost from the be ginning, as though Corbett must Inevitably succumb to the viclou Jabs of hi lusty opponent. Round after round left him weak and groggy, time after time the gong alone saved him, as It seemed, from absolute de feat. Still weak and bleeding from num berless wounds he steadfastly refused as sistance, walked to his corner unaided and came up again game if none too strong. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the fight was the champion's apparently In exhaustible fund of reserve strength. Let the finish of any given round leave him weak a It might, he always managed to turn np again on time able, at least, to give a good account of himself in the suc ceeding bout. Flht by Bounds. First Round Hanlon was the first to load, but was short. Corbett pranced about and uppercut Hanlon lightly with his right. Hanlon assumed a crouching position and was well guarded.
