Jackson presents a strange, appealing
figure on the pages of history. He waa
as gentlo and gracious as' Lee, as silent

audacious as Stuart or Sheridan, as re

waa an intensity of religious fervor that
belonged to the seventeenth century
rather than the nineteenth. The war to

went from battle to give thanks to God,

The best interests of Omaha and its
citizens and the best interests of the gas
company are really the same.
The reaction of a franchise unfair to
the people could do us immeasurable
Nothing is easier than to charge an
opponent with bad motives; no kind of a
charge should carry less weight with fair
minded men and women.
There is nothing "between the lines'
in the proposed gas rate-reduction franchise.
If the gas company did not believe it
fair to the people it would not persistently
invite YOU to read it and to carefully
consider it section by section.
Approval of the rate-reduction fran
chise by the voters means that you will get
a reduction of 15 cents per thousand feet
in the price of gas at once.
The rate reduction franchise will save
the gas users of Omaha more than $700,000
in the next 5 1-3 years alone this tuith-
unexpired "franchise value," and the, right
to admit a competing company.
If the franchise is rejected, the city and
the company will bo compelled to fight
out the dollar gas case in the courts, with
uncertain results at the-end of four or five
years. The most the city can win is $1.00
gas, which is offered NOW by the rate
The franchise was unanimously passed
by the mayor and city council, based upon
a long investigation by experts. .
It will be accepted by the gas com
pany because, although $1.00 gas will not
at present yield a fair return upon the
actual value of its physical property, the
company desires to serve the people effici
ently and adequately with gas not excelled
in the United States, and in this way to
maintain its standing as a progressive and
deservedly successful service organization.
