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
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:

Each community or municipality may do

its streets; may either enter upon the busi

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

Today the old electric light companies

be replaced by modern apparatus. What
proms were made were promptly paid out
in dividends, and nothing waa set aside for

was never thouiiht of. hence tho burden

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

then the question of municipal ownership
of electric light plants disappears.

ticipated in by Kdward E. Elliott, city elec-
propeny devoted to the service.

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.

SAN FRANCISCO. 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.

The Maxim ft Gay Co. believe It judicious at this stage ot Its long and useful
career to the American racing public to point out to the unsophisticated that
there Is nothing in common between the method of the Maxim A Gay Co. and
those of the so-called get rich quick turf concerns which recently went to smash
and buried their promoters In obloquy. Our methods are strictly honest, are founded
on business principles, and have long since been endorsed by the most prominent
an.1 Influential racing men In the country. We engage the best force of track
experts money can bring together and spend aa much money a wo can consistently
to unearth stable secrets. This Information we have sold for nearly three years to

to send us their money. At the New Orleans meeting, for the first time In the
history of the company, we Invited our friends and the racing public generally to
send us their money to bet for them. W never did It before. The necessity for
this change arose from the fact that If our experts' selection were not kept secret

from a betting standpoint. For further reason In explanation of this statement
see terms and condition below. The Maxim it Gay Co. ha a cash capital ot
