W S Morlan and J E Kelley appear
ed before the council and interrogated
the members as to its sentiment in re
gard to entertaining a proposition from
the present owners to sell the plant to
the municipality intimating that the
plant was not remunerative at present
and as the life of the franchise is short
the bondsmen and stockholders might
find it necessary to apply to the courts
for a receiver and the incidental fixation
by the court of profitable rates It was
also intimated by the gentlemen that
the present owners might accept bonds
in payment from tho city and further
that the valuation might be -determined
by the council and owners or by apprais
ers selected in the usual way
The council took no definite action at
this session but have the matter under

Dollars Worth of Stock Subscribed
During the Past Week
The Total Amount Now Subscribed Is
Nearly 2900000 But More Is
Urgently Needed
As wo go to press today we are able
to report the subscriptions to stock
this week for tho temple opera house
enterprise as totalling over a thousand
dollars and the total subscriptions to
the project up to date us nearly 29000
Below we give the names and amounts
subscribed this week

J K Gordon 1
Total 2859
Whilo other labors in this connection
have demanded the time and energies
of the temple opera house boosters and
no special organized effort has been
made to secure additional stock sub-
scriptions it must not be concluded
that there is no further need of buying
stock in this great enterprise Indeed
quite the reverse is the case Several
thousand dollars more must be raised
by the sale of stock a fact made imper
ative by the requirement and desire of
Some of those who have subscribed for
stock that the structure shall be com
pleted and financed without debt
Let the people be thoroughly awake
to the fact that we are not entirely out
of the woods in the matter of first im
portance the sale of sufficient stock to
completely finance the opera house
temple project And the enterprise
should not be allowed to drag for lack
of interest and public spiritedness
And this recalls the fact that several
leading and financially interested citi
zens of means have so far not joined the
boosters and made liberal purchases of
stock according to their financial ability
These subscriptions are greatly needed
as well as the purchases of smaller
blocks by citizens of more modest
means The benefit of the proposed
building will be to all whether they
have property interests or not so all
who are able should feel it their privi
lege and duty to help on this big and
promising project with their money and
influence but money talks
The building committee is engaged
with architects on various plans and we
hope soon to be able to announce the
settlement of this important question
the closing of a contract with a reliable
builder and the early commencement
of this big enterprise
But in the mean time brethren get
in the procession with your subscrip
tions to stock

A Singular Life
The loss was to all thoso who failed to
hear Adrian M Newensin his matchless
reading of A Singular Life in the
new high school building Monday eve
ning and by the same token the profit
to those who braved the elements on
that occasion and heard tho splendid
effort Mr Newens is not only an att
ist but he had an appealing subject
and he handled the touching story with
a spiritual insight and tasteful clever
ness which marked him as a sympa
thetic soul and a princely fellow The
reading was a sermon of special ap
propriateness for this city a temper
ance address with a dash of theology
altogether human and vital The only
regret is that the severe rain storm pre
vented many from drinking in this in
spiring effort
