In the form in which th*J bill has been introduced it-amply provides for . tb.e n«ed3~ of. the company in the premises, and partially so for the city, but it does not go far enough in the latter direction to constitute a. just and equitable franchise contract, or one reserving to thtt city all the rights and privileges to 'which it is entitled. The most vitali objections io the proposed-ordinanc'e are that it grants a perpetual righf; and without adequate compensation therefor. It is more and more becoming the practice of all wide-awake, np-to-date municipalities to refuse to grand indeterminate franchises. Mere general recognition is being given to the fact I that the 'ownership of the streets and highways of a city or toirn is vested In the public, or the eiti'.cns ot the municipality as a -whole, aad that city councils do not have the right, while they mayHie power, to forever divest the public of these rights. Instead, it Js held by^tha enlightened leaders aad students of municipal Affairs that eTrery franchise should be for a fixed period pf'-years only and its granting conditioned "upon a fair measure of compensation tor the rights or priv- ' lieges conferred. Aside from, these features which the ordinance lacs tbe.'e are other objections to~. H which isaay- be considered., somewhat in detail. "SVhile the proposed 'ordinance very broadly Sires tie-ioApany the right to "con- ·truct, niaiiitain and operate its con- pied by street ' j tracks it might nqi'be ugvise to include (he whole ^pace between tlie curb and on foot outside the rails in the sectaoa to be re-pave^ 'after laying the conduits. The same provision should be made to apply to streets unpaved at Uie time the' conduits are laid therein. This section should be further amended so as to require the company to compensate the city not onl- the first re-paying, where conduits are laid in advance of re-paving, but for all subsequent repairs and American a greater determination to do everything in iiis or her power to win this war. * The entertainment is free, no admittance being charged nor collection taken.

At Stockholder*' Meeting: . 1 Doyle went to Meyersdolc this raonnng to attend a meeting of the stockholders of the Meyersdale Browing company. He will return ho.lie but any objection to this section would be largely removed if tfre preceding and other sections were amended as suggested. Section 12 is in need of radical amendment. As drawn it does not bind, the company to extend its conduits along Crawford avenuo, Webt Skie, before re-paving. It merely gives tbe company the opportunity to allow its risk-is to that street to lapse temporarily, in case re-paring becomes necessary before the company wishes to lay its conduit thereto, aod to trust to a later city council to give it a new ordinance it to lay its conduits in that street whenever it wishes to do so. In lieu of this section there should be one malting the ngiit to lay a conduit on any jtavett street c.qn,diuon*d upon Its con- siruction pdbr to re-paving, otherwise the right would terminate with respect'to such street In like -manner the right to occupy an unpaved street should become null and \oid Enlfcb; in Nary.

It is to be regretted that ihe con- dun problem cannot be so solved at ibis time liiat tliu menace of overhead wires of every description can be removed. Partial removal of them Is a step in that direction, of course. and will eventually result in a complete removal. IL is, thereiore, all the more imperaUvg that in taking :he initial step no precedent be established chat will later operate to deprive the city of any ngcit or privilege the future may require thiu it enjoy. For tkeje reasons the city coun-cii should give very thoughtful consideration to any proposition winch, if accepted as teadercd, would haro the efTect of bartering these rights away.

With t h e comparatively small amount of pay earned by the soldier one would think there could be little or no money saved by him. But tiie thrift spirit has taken possession of our boys, and the percentage of them who fritter away their soldier's pay is almost negligible. The average American soldier spends 20 cents a day, which includes his bill for tobacco, toilet necessities and sweets. Indeed, a situation that even the frugal Frenchman, would be proud of I One cannot begin to compote the value of this condition neither at the present time nor in the era of peace that sooner or later will come. Of the thousands upon thousands of American soldiers in France (and sooo it will run into the millions) a very small percentage, we venture, were thnftv before the war. Think then of the economic value that will accrue when these boys who Tiave been getting along on 20 cents a day for their fitUe luxuries come back to us and again take op the routine of civilian lifel An artilleryman writing borne from France, savs: "I have Liberty bonds, war savings stamps, military insurance, and have allotted $15 a month to the folks back home." A Y. M. C A, secretary writing home from France, says: "'The average amount of nioneif sent back home by the boys here is a franc a day ($6 a mouth) and this represents artillerymen, engineers, and doughboys. The chief thought of the majority of our _boys now is to insure their economic independences aftrr the war/* What an inspiring- statement I "What a splendid testimonial to the good sense of our wonderfuF boys at the front!
