Editor of the 'I'ribune-I beg
leave to state briefly why many
of us favor adopting the teferen-
dum law next Tuesday.
First : Many citizens have many
times expressed righteous indig-
nation when our rulers have
threatened to give our excellent
city water to the rich , and to
such corporations as railroads ,
at a nominal price , and then
charge the average citizen two
prices to make up the loss. I
have heard of city councils that
were well supplied with free rail-
road passes and other bribes who
threatened. to buy coal and other
city necessities from said bribe
givers , at a price much higher
than the same goods could be
The law , once adopted and in
force here puts a power in the
hands of the voters to veto and
prevent an , such ordinances them-
selves , whether the mayor and
council like their doings or not.
A few weeks ago I heard the
largest taxpayer in Falls City
speak as follows : "Let us adopt
the referendum statute. If the vot-
ers should never make any use of
it , the simple } fact that we have a
veto power in our hands , win
serve as a mighty club over the
heads of our officials , and they
wjll } be much more likely to deal
fairly with the tax-payers. "
Any man who travels cast , can
see that it will not be manY years ,
until this good country win be
netted with trolley lines. A
strong , corrupt effort , will of
course be made , to monopolize our
narrow busy main street , by these
lines , without compensation to
the publi . If the Aldermen , in
disgraced 11linneapolis , St. Louis
and many other suffering mun-
icipalties , had been warned of a
Referendum power , in the hands
of the people , that might be used
in calling them down , and hu-
1 - L
miliating them , much of' the
crookedness now so prevalent in
cities , would never have come to
pass. Let us prevent our officials
in the future , from lisbning to
evil influences , and forgetting
the best interests or the pcople.
It is only a question of time wheu
Palls City will have a serious ty-
phoid epidemic , caused by the
condition of the alleys on each
side of Stone st reet , We win
then awake to the necessity of
sewerage , but as usual will find
the officials and leaders slow and
consen'ative. The new Jaw in
force just then , might prove a
blessing in the hands of the peo-
Some arc inquiring , how win
this effect the saloon business ?
I cannot see that it win effect
them at all. Under the Slocum
law at present , when a majority
of the voters elect a no-license
ticket , there will be no license is-
sued. Under the Referendum , it
is exactly the same. When a
majority of the voters , under the
Referendum law , sad- no license ,
then there will be no license iSfued.
In either case , it is only a question -
tion , who gets the majority of the
voters converted to his side.
Men from all parties arc work-
ing to carry the law next Tues-
day. The men who started this
agitation a month ago and has
done more than any of us to get
sighers and make votes for the
law is a democrat.

The ladies auxiliary to Steele
cemetery association win meet

It is desired that all llembers. be
present as there is much business
to be transacted and many plans
to be discussed.
GUM ON STREET CARS ' " :
Nay Be Dispensed by Penny-In-Slot
The pennyin . the . elbt machine
designers and makers have long .
realized that such a device on
street cars would be a great source
of profit , SHJS the Philadelphia
Record , but they have not hereto
fore been successful in meeting
the conditions peculiar to street
car sel'vice. These devices have
always been of such size and pl'O'
portions to make them unsuited
for this service , for the fIrst re.
quirements must be that they
should be entirely out of the way
of the passengers malting their
way into and out of the l'Hr. These
machines , which have fined the ,
' far size is con - - '
requirements as as n-
'PI'ncd , have been of a design to
frail for the purpose , hut the de-
sired object has recently been ar-
rived at in a slot machine ) ) on en-
lirely new lines.
This consists of n tube less than
three inches in diameter and
about thirty inches high } ) , which is
a shape that will permit of its be.
ing tucked away conveniently and
without any liability of its getting
in the way of passengers. It is designed -
signed to dispense candy of vari-
ous kinds , gum , matches and choc-
olate. To operate the device it is
simply necessary to put a penny in
the ever-gaping slot and push a
button , which operation releases
the desired article.
Card of Thanks.
I desire to thank mp friends for
thc thoughtful consideration , for
the beautiful tokens . and for the
expression of sympathy which
so g-cnerously bestowcd in my
late I bereavement . . .
