THE HESPERIAN IS IN ITS
THE TOO QESEtiOUS PUBLIC.
One of the mo»t remarkable and
yet popular and legitimate cases
of silent bnll-dozing on reco.d wax
that at Syracuse, N. Y., when the
people assembled in large mass
convention in the city council
chamber to overawe, by their
presence simply, a lot of aldermen
who were preparing to givo away
valuable city franchises for an in-
definite peoriod to their favorites
The press of the city bad pro-
tested against giving away sach
valuable concessions. It was
charged that the sheet car compa
nies and others were "greasing"
the council while attempting to sonable and adequate percentage
rob the city of rights and fran- of profits to the public as an indi-
chises that were inalienable ani
that ought to be granted to others
only for a valuable consideration
for temporary use—that a limit
should be fixed to the time of the
use uf the franchise, and that, too,
a reasonable limit and unler
proper safeguards for forfeiture
and ascending annnal rental. The
vidual should pay rent to another
individual whose property he
lhis view, it is gratifying to
see, is now attracting more and
more attention in the east and
west. It is seen that the commu-
nity has a source cf large revenue
in the direction indicated, that
aldermen disregarded these sug- has not been sufficiently utliized
gesions of the press, and then the
people were aroused to storming
the council chamber and the
scheme was abandoned for tho
time. The silent but emphatic
protest from the hundreds of rep-
resentative and wathful citizens
who thronged the council hall was
too much for the aldermen, aud
the ordinances went over.
The Syracuse press, as the
Cleveland press recently, and the
papers of other cities, iusisted
that the city had a valuable re-
serve power for raising revenue
from the city franchise, and that
this source of revenue was con-
stantly incieasing in value as the
population increased. These
public franchises shonld always
l>e held sacredly in trust for the
whole people, aud only l>e farmed
ont for reasonable fixed terms and
for fixed compensation. The nse
of such concessions is always prof-
itable to those who do not attempt
to make them meet extraordinary
charges on plants and the public
paying for the service giveu by
the companies or individuals ex
ercising the franchise can justly
demand remuneration foi the con-
cessions. Water companies, light
C0Tipar.if»8, transportation com-
panies, or any other companies
using the streets belonging to a
city, shoald as justly pay a rea-
heretofore, and better business
sense is entering into municipal
management. Many cities finan-
cially embarrassed are wastefully
and recklessly, or negligently, al-
lowing the nse of the public fran-
chises without receiving a dollar
of compensation, but the public-
is slowly becoming enlightened in

The great strides made by the
New York Times within the last
few months form a notable chap-
ter in American journalism.
During a period of general busi-
ness depression the New \ ork
Times has made steady progress,
having within six months nearly
doubled its circulation. This
growth, while indeed gratifying,
serves only to stimulate the man-
agement to greater efforts. With
a view to the introduction of the
New York Times in homes where
it is not now received, where the
improvement that has been made
may not be known, a plan has
been devised to reward those who
may assist in the work of increas-
ing its circulation by offering to
any man, woman or child any one
of the standard high grade one
hundred dollar bicycles, 1897
model, if they will secure one
hundred (100) new subscribers
for the New York Times, each for
three months—£3 if delivered by
carrier; $2.50 if sent by mail.
That no effort to increase the cir
culation of the New York Times
may go unrewarded to those who
find they can not secure more thai:
fifty subscribers for three months
each, the choice will be given of
any fifty dollar (retail price) bi-
cycle, American manufacture, and
to those who in their efforts fall
short of fifty subscribers there
will be paid 50 cents in cash for
every subscriber less than fifty.
Remember you can have your
choice of any bicycle of American

cepted in making up the required

ply them). Send the sigi.ed and j
addressed letter circulars to the

to secure 100 subscribers, and you j

ance will surely bring success.

Now that Galveston, Texas, has
deep water the railroads of the
west are building in that direc-
tion, South Texas is the nearest
gateway to the sea for all states
west of the Mississippi by many
hundred miles and now offers
markets almost as good as New
York and better than Chicago.
The tide of immigration as well
as commerce is surely turning to-
wards the gulf. A genial climate,
good markets and land capable of
producing from $100 to $500 per
acre selling for less than the an-
nual rental of North Texas lands
will surely attract the homeseeker.
