it is a certainty that tho present coun
cil will not grunt a frauchiNo to a
privato individual or corporation, aud
it is almost equally cortaln that no
succeeding council could bo wheedled
into taking such a backward stop.
Thoro sooms to bo an Idea in tho
minds of somo of tho voters that tho
bonds to bo voted aro In aid of somo
privato firm or corporation, and that
thoro Is dangor of tho mouoy being
misappropriated. Nothing could bo
farther from tho truth. If tho bonds
carry, and wo hope thoy will, tho
money will bo kept, under tho control
of tho city administration and no 0110

besides paying tho Intorost on tho

to pay tho bonds when due.
Whon Hod Cloud had an oloctrio
plant under privato ownership tho
owners of It mudo it pay, and it is u
slur on tho ability of our citizens and
tho city administration to oven insin

and tho backing of tho poople, thoy
could not do as well or bottor than a
privato individual or corporation.
Another urgumont advanced by tho
opposition touds to appeal to tho
pooror classes. Thoy say: "Why,
oven if tho city should put in a light

lot of money to havo your houso wired
bofqro you oau havo lights.' Well,
that is true to a cortaln extent. But
supposo tho city should undortako to

would morply moan that tho price of

Hilled a Fox.
Quito a little excitement was stirred
up in the vicinity of-Amboy Thursday
foronoon by a genuine fox ohaso, a
form of sport that is exceedingly raro
In this part of tho world. In fact, this
is tho first instauco of tho kind wo
ever heard of In this section. A dog
belonging o Sam Miller, living just
north of Amboy, started tho quarry.
Word was passed among tho neigh
bors aud quito a numbor turned out
and gave chaso. The fox was .finally
cornorod noar tho rivor south from
the Starke, place, and Will Rassor put
an end to its troubles by shooting it.
Tho animal was u flno largo specimen
of redfox, and whore it camo from
is a mystery, as no ono around horo
sooms to havo ovor heard of foxes
boing soon in this country.
