Whoever has given tae subject of American'city government the slightest attention knows that it is precisely in this respect that it is most at fault. Themunicipal history of New York is in itself a glaring illustration of- the systematized misuse mayors and aldermen, have made at their most important prerogative, and the enormous debts piled up iuul the insufficient income of most of. our large American clues are, leaving downright corruption out of the question, the consequence of reprehensible,neglect of all due precaution in guarding the interests of the commonwealth against Hie greed of private schemers, lo •brin? about a thorough reform of. municipal government in the United States nothing is more needed than to inculcate the lesson deeply in the hearts mid brains of the average city council that the needs of a city are just like those of a private individual, of a commercial firm—there must be profit in nil its undertaking* in order-to petto, and then remain on, a flourishing-busts.

It requires, under heavy penalties, that the area be fully provided with mnin wires within a brief period, specified in thu contract. As compensation for pel-mis- sion (not exclusive) to use the erects I it is agreed thut the municipal treasury shall receive ten per cent, of the com| pacy's gross receipts, and, further, that, whenever the company eariis a net, profit of more than six per cent, on its actual investment of capital, 'the. city treasury shnll receive 25 per cent, of Buch excess profits, in addition to its ten per cent, of the gross income. St-i II further, it is agreed tihat tlie company shall provide the magnifioent electric illumination of Unter den Linden, together with that of the Potsilamei- Platz and of Leipsiger strasse, with all expense of maintenance nnd attendance at a price so low as to be nominal. Besides this a special and favorable rate is provided for such further electric street lighting ns the municipality may desire. Tlie city authorities retain the- fullest rights of inspection, both technical and financial, and the company's affairs are open to the knowledge of responsible public ofll- cJuls. The city requires the deposit of 250,000 marks as surety, nnd holds the company down to the strictest rules in regard to the laying of wires mid the breaking up of streets or .sidewalk surfaces. The company is required, moreover, to maintain a renewal fund eqiiul to 20 per cent, of its invested capital, and this fund, in the. form of Berlin municipal bonds, inutit bo kept on deposit with the city magistrates. Accompanying the agreement is an official scheclulo of rates that the company is authorized to charge its private patrons. Xo departure fror.i established rates ca.u be made without the consent of the city authorities. Finally tlie municipality reserved the right to buy the entire pinnt and nil its appurtcnnr.ccs at any time, after October 1, ISM, upon a fair ba.MS of va.l-ua.tion, carefully jiro- &rre»t of an Alices Cnuntorrcltcr L'ndcr Puculliir Cli-oiiiurtt;iiico».

SCH1LLER PLACE AN D RO'STAL THEATER, intermural communication. All three of them have, been ' made important sources'of revenue to Berlin nnd with that the qunlity'and price of the servico rendered by'the'companies is above •what is rendered t>y American companies. In Berlin the gas supply has been made, a city feature. The works are operated, however, by two distinct companies,' at the' city's risk and under the city's strict control: Both the grade of theilluminatingandfuelgns and their [prices arc prescribed and-'-no deviation ,is, under any circumstances, permitted. The gas is tested doily by municipal officers. The price is about CO per cent, lower than in. the majority of large American cities. Yet the clear profits accruing te- the " municipal treasury every year are reckoned by the millions, and the taxes are by that much diminished,' Berlin is, however, not by any means-alone in this respect.. Other German cities owning their gas works are- Hamburg, Breslau. Dresden, LeipBic, MONUMENT OF FREDERICK WILLIAM III. . Cologne, Konigaburg, Bremen, Nuremberg', Dantzic, Magdeberg, Chemnitz, Dusseldorf, Barmen, Stettin and [Jruas- •wick. And in every instance they arc making it a success in every .sense, both as to price and quality and means of revenue. In the matter of electric plants things nre still in an evolutionary stage in Germany, municipal •'governments being here rather slow before engaging in' enterprises asl to the value and per• manence of: which they do not yet feel fully assured.--..The.Berlin worka were opened In-1886,'-anti the five important German cities of'Breslau, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Altona and. Cassel have .built plarits' ; o ; f -tifeir''own likewise; In-other German cities- tncy ; have preferred con• tracts •' witB private' iftrmsi Siemens' & 'Halske'being :the favored one. In each. case,'however, the. city's interests - are atrlnge-ntly yarded. . As. a. sample I will mention the 'revised contract made in 1688 between the Berlin city authorities and the Berlin Electric Works company. It defines the area within __.-« — -*-, — " --~-— "•— ~ ~ videdHor in the contract. The whole ar- rangefncnt is the perfection of business lucidity and intelligence. And-I may odd th&t under,all the above conditions the- company has been doing n flourish- lug business, •. . * And iW ae to franchises granted to street railway companies. Generally, It may be said'that such franchises arc much nWo profitable property in America *han here; but, on the other haiid,' thehcompanies themselves are •under incomparably closer municipal control inlCerrnany,.and they have to pay about lift] for the privilege enjoyed one con reasonably expect of them. Iu most instances they-have to pay a tiix of from«.eight to'ten per'cent., or more upon gljoiss receipts,:with-certa-in other-odvantiwes accruing to the city, suchns reduced ratea of-transportation* For short distances the -rate of .price for a ride is one-hait what it is.Ln American cities, viz., ten innings, for longer distances it is increased to'15 or 20 pfen- ing-s, or five cents. School children and ethers have a much lower-rate.. Thot ia about the general rule in German cities of largo size, and these rules hold good for horse, steam,or electric cars, with rates 'averaging 50 per cent, less than prevail in American elevated roads,' the Berlin city railway (or "L 1 rond) is the ' best constructed and safest elevated line in existence, and yet it pays handsome, dividends. In dealing.with these companies, too the city always.takes the best care o1 its own interests. Thus just now the renewal of franchise (for another 12 years) granted to the largest and most flourishing of the Berlin street railway companies—the. Greater Berlin Horsi. Car company—has about been perfect : cd.., It yields the-'city much greater advantages .and a muc,h higher profit out of its revenues .than' didthe .old fran chise. The tux on the gross receipts ha.' been increased 'from eight to ten per cent., and will go on increaa ing to 15 per cent. The company -is held to put in permanent 5m provemcnts to the amount, of 10, 000,000 marks (or about .$2,500,000) 01 its extensive lines. Besides it agrees ti replace, gradually, all 'its horse cci lines by electric lines within those 12 years, and to introduce ar uniformjten pfenning rate and a complete syslein o; transferw for. the original fare paid. . .From the 1 three^ources named abovi. the city has an average annual income of 25 to 30 million marks, T.here is not in the whole length and width of the United States a single city whicn can show'similar results of-its'strcet rail wey system or-other'•• public conven ' Sences, -'But of 'course, as I poin ted ou before,- the first, requisite necessary t< bring about-similarly,.who]esom«; con ditions in.-American..cities .'.is to. elec only honest and capable aldermen and mayors, men having the welfare of the community at heart, not only on the tip • of their tongues.

According to this story, taken from [he New York He-raid, the bicycle thief is inventive this year. A young man ivas, practicing circles in front of his house when two fellows stopped on the pavement to admire him. One of them isked how much the wheel weighed, and the young man said it weighed 22 pounds. : The fimaller of the two said that was too light, and that he believed in wheels weighing at least 30 pounds. Also, he mentioned that he once came in. first in a ten-mile race and rode a wheel weighing 38 pounds. At this the larger of the strangers laughed derisively and said: " "What do you know about wheels? "Why, I've ridden more wheels than you ever saw," replied the other; "I don't believe you can ride at all." "I'll bet you five dollars I can. Let PEDALED AWAY LIKE THE WIND, mo show him on your wheel. I v,-on't hurt it." . He couW ride all right. He wobbled slowly on the wheel for a short dis- ttmce, and then swished around the corner and was a,wny like the wind.. "You'd .better run after that fellow,^ said the stranger. "I don!t know him." The owner of the wheel set off,- but the short stranger must haVe been a mile away by that time. Then when the owner-came back the Tjigr stranger had also gone. ^ SIntrlinony and Pocket*A wile has o. right to go through her husbaud's pockets. A New York police mngiKtra-te has so-decided.
