W, C. Lambert assistant elty attorney,
who dratted the gas franchise ordinuftce,
cornea to the defense of the measure; ort
tho ground that It will give the gas com
pany only a reasonable return on their
Investment, or a per cent lie dispose
of the contention that the city could drive
a better bargain If the frahohtse ordi
nance were laid over until the present
franchUe expires .by declaring tho city
council cannot legally compel ' tho fas
company, to furnish gaa at a deficit or
even at a prleo that does not give them
a reasonable .return on their investment
We feel It due to the public to state
the roasona and facts which-convinces us
that the proposed grant Is one designed
to protect the city ami based upon an
allowance to tho company of only, a fair
return upon the capital which, It .has in
vested In the service.
The city's export, W &JVJ.rKefj after

,1. That the total manufacturing cost to
the .company, averaged -over a period qt

the basis of gas made, was 13,28 cents
for each 1,000 cubo feet .This la the ac
tual coat to put tWO, cubio feet of gaa
'n the, company's holders,
2. That the total distributing coats to
the company, averaged over tame flvet
year period, on the basis ot gas sold,
was 2$. 93 cents per 1,000 cublo feet. This
la the coat to put l.CW outjo feet Into the
consumers' meter. These Items Inuludu
no profit to the company. The clty'a ex

was 7 cents. This gives a total coat ot
79.67 centa for each 1.000 cublo feet of gaa.
Nothing In allowed for profit ill the fore
Mr Marks concluded that the 'company
had $J.SS Invested for each 1,000 cublo

return or per cent on this investment
requires lt.J cents on each 1,000 cubic feet.

pany nothing for so-called "going value

was valued us a live unit, and not as

troverted questions Involved In rate liti
gation. Ills computation ot "going

the investment from to about $3

The present occupation tax and royal

FOREIGN LOBBY IS ACTIVE
Smoot Charges that Tariff Fntmcrs
Were Influenced by It.
ITALIANS ASK FOR REDUCTIONS
Democrats Give Them Store Than
They Ileqacat in Nearly Krery
Instance South Favored
at West's Expense.
WASHINGTON, July 21.-Assertlng that
a foreign "lobby" had Influenced tho
democrats in the framing of the Under-wood-Hlmmons
tariff bill, Senator Smoot
republican member of the finance com
mittee, today delivered a vigorous attack
on the measure. '
He painted a picture of mills shut down,
workmen unemployed, investors ruined
ami an era ot general financial ahd In
dustrial dopresslon as tho result ot level
ing of tariff walls. European nations,
he declared, were not ao much to bo
feared as competitors as were tho na
tions of the orient.
"There has been n lobby here In be
half of tho fprelgn manufacturers," ho
charged, "such as was never before wit
nessed In tho history of the nation and
they havo got even more than they nskod
for. The Italian Chamber of Commerce
or New York asked for certain reductions
ami democrats In nearly every case have
given more than was asked."
The senator assailed the Increase in
the free list, especially with reference
to sugar, wool, pig Iron and textiles. He
charged tliut tho sugar Industry of
Hawaii and Torto rtlco would bo ruined
with consequent benefits to the so-called
sugar "trust" and that China, with Its
great stel " plants, would capture the
BWel business of tho western hemisphere.
Free List Is Jjorgr.
Referring to the Walker tariff bill of
ISM, on which he contended tho present
bill was largely modeled, Mr. Smoot said
that tho Walker law provided for the ad
mission free of only about 9 per cent of
,lmports, while the Undcrwood-fllmmone
measure nllows 65 per cent ot tho greatly
Increased volumo of incoming trade to on
ter untaxed. Under the Walker law, he
added, the average rate of duty on nil
Imports was 23.15, while under tho pro
posed new law, tho rate would be merely
a trifle over IS per cent,
"All the World knows how this country
kuffcred aa a result of tho Wilson tariff
law In 1S98," ho continued, "bilt tho aver
age rate of duty now la over 3 per cent
lower than Was tho case under the last
democratic tariff, when the business ot
tho nation was paralyzed and of the
1,000,000 thrown out of employment."
Senator Bmoot charged tho democrats
with Inconsistency In tho framing of the
measure. Calling nttentlon to the fact
that wheat, flour, corn and cornmedl,
potatoes and virtually every form ot
meats go on the free list, certain food
products peculiar to the southern mar
ket nro under a tariff tax.
Southern Crop Protected.
"nice, peanuts and bananas, grown In
the south," he charged, "require duti
able tariff. They are used by poor peopla
generally. In Porto , Rico rice la con
sumed to the extent of 100 pounds per
capita. It can bo used Instead of corn
and wheat But corn, wheat, potatoes
and other auch products go on tho free
list, while rice Is made dutiable."
The senator then launched Into a de

BRYAN PROPOSAL IS POPULAR
(Continued from Page One.)
Bouthcrland, Mark Smith, O'Gorman and
Stone expressed approval ot tho general
principles of tho proposal.
Chairman Bacon of the foreign rela
tions committee, who was strongly op
posed to the original Nlcaraguan treaty,
said he believed the now proposal by
Secretary Bryan greatly changed the
situation and entitled the treaty "to the
most careful consideration."
The proposed treaty will be attacked In
some quarters on the ground that It
would put a moral obligation uppn the
United Btates to sea that Nicaragua ro
tunds and pays Its old debts, oven though
the treaty does not make this country di
rectly responsible for them.
Whatevor the actual result may be, the
underlying purpose of the administration
In framing the agreement with Nicar
agua was to secure the concession for a
canal route and tho extension of the
Piatt amendment was merely an inci

waa developed in the courso of a con

Young Woman Left
at Strange Home as
Babe Seeks Mother
D. F. Turner, 88. Block 6, Pueblo. Cola,
Is aiding In the search for the mother
of an anxious yo.ung woman, who as a
babe. 10 days .old waa left at his home a
little over twenty-ntno years ago.
Mr. Turner's Impression Is that the
mother, Mrs. J. B. Hutchingson, Is still
alive and likely Just as anxious to learn
the whereabouts of her child as tho child
it to find, her mother. When the babe,
now a woman of extraordinary charm,
was left at tho Turner home by her
father, It was only for a period ot two
weeks. At the end ot that fi?. how
ever, Mr. Hutchingson, wno said his wits
had died, did not call for the babe and
It has since been one of the Turner fam
ily. Aa the years have gone Miss Hutching
son had longed for her mother, wondering
day after day whether she waa to be
forever denied of seeing her in .flesh and
blood. No amount ot persuasion can sat
isfy her that her mother died when she
was & mero infant and she is, desptto her
efforts to control her thoughts, continu
ally hoping that someway, somewhere
and somehow she Is going to actually bo
solaced by her presence.
