SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII. NO. 4 WHAT DO YOU THlNK?— Seattle, according to the calculation' made in the directory now in preparation, has gained in population 100 per cent in the last five years, and now has 200,000 population. In the next five years, at the same ratio, she will have 400,000; in ten years she will have 800,000; in 15 years she will have 1,600,000. If • the owners of the public utilities can now make a profit of more than $2,000,000 per year and take it out of the city, then in 15 years, when the city has a population of 1,600,000, they will take out eight times as much as they now take, which is an enormous sum of money; in 30 years they will take out of the City of Seattle between $150,000,000 and 200,000,000 all told. If the City of Seattle now grants franchises over all of its principal streets to the Moore-Gilman Company, the Moore-Gilman Company in 40 years will make a clear profit off of the citizens of Seattle of near $200,000,000. Do you wonder that .Mr. M...

CITY NEWS. # # * A Woman's Way. Talk about a man's superior strength, but a woman can out general him in many ways when he least expects it. Fitfeenth avenue between Harrison and Republican recently had a little example of the same. Carson L. Larsen. a laborer, was helping to make an excavation adjoining a Mrs. Smith's prop erty. The pit, she feared, would undermine her house, so she ordered him to stop the work. This lie refused to do, whereupon she turned the hose upon him. The laborer continued to work and the woman continued to hold the nozzle, out of which water from an inch hose was streaming. Finally, the laborer backed off from the scene well drenched and left the woman mistress of the situation. Mrs. Smith was afterwards placed under arest but no one can say that her idea was not —well, a woman's idea of doing things. Seattle, the City. Much has been written about the good results whic 11 Seattle will reap from the Lewis and Clark fair and the following ex tracts taken from...

But, dear reader, "one" is mis taken. Kentucky is a favored spot of Uncle Sam's domain, with her cultured, refined and Christian citizens. They are pure Anglo- Saxons (especially those who engage in feuds and in the bribing of the courts) and in short possessing all the qualities requisite to God's elect. Despite all these nice things, last Sun- day's Associated Press dispatches told of a condition in which the judge, the jury and the officers of the law were all involved in Payette county, Kentucky, that came dan gerously close to outdoing Hottentot itself, for barbarism. A similar condition prevails in pretty nearly every county in the state, hence "one" would not be far out of the way to pronounce it Hotentot, United States, America. THE TELEPHONE FRANCHISE.

ALBION W. TOURGEE. Albion W. Tourgee is dead. The Reaper has claimed one of the sweet est and bravest souls the world ever saw. The law has lost a brilliant child. Literature has lost a genius. Humanity has lost a champion who never quailed before the enemy, nor equivocated, nor stammered, nor sac rificed in public speech or writing one principle of liberty. He excused nothing wrong. Nothing to him was expedient unless it was right; noth ing was right unless it was expedient. The history of all ages may be search ed in vain for a braver or more virtu ous man. The plaudits of the nation never turned him from his duty; the aspersions and threats of his enemies, who were also the enemies of Heaven, never deterred him from a fixed con viction, which he dared maintain like Garrison, and Phillips and Sumner. These men were his friends. They could not but love him. Tourgee for years was the star of hope to the black people of North Carolina, if not of the whole country. They never looked t...

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII. NO. 5 CITY OWNERSHIP The consular reports are giving some in teresting information in regard to municipal ownership in Europe. Below will be found extracts from the report of Consul Walter C. Hamm, of Hull, England, and Consul Frank W. Mahin, at Nottingham, England. The municipalization of what are known as natural monopolies is going on in England, and where the experiment is tried it is nearly always found to result in great benefit to the commounity and to the employes. For in stance, Mr. Hamm says that the construction of the municipal telephone system at Hull has brought about a speedy reduction in rates. The municipal telephone has reduced the rates in Hull to about $2 a month, and street car fare to 2 cents. Gas in being sold at less than 50 cents a thousand feet, and electricity is furnished at 9 cents per unit. At Leicester the city has taken over the street car lines, or taamways as they are called, and is going to operate about forty two miles...

the wholesale arresting of every colored woman in that section of the city. Unless the Pie-maker has been sadly misinformed there are just as many pickpockets among the white prostitutes as the blacks and the arresting of colored women on the wholesale just because a man gets robbed is but an other case of race intolerance that is so com mon to this country. Some of the loav flung trash on the police force that are always hoping for an excuse to show their authority by abusing some colored persons, has an ori gin that even an animal would refuse to be classed with. There was no more justice in the arrest of that lump lot of fallen colored women, one day this week, than there would be to go up on the First Hill and arrest equally as many of the best Avomen in the city. Let crime and criminals be punished to the limit of the law, but it is unfair to punish persons Avho knoAV nothing of the crime for which they are being punished. In the next municipal campaign colored A*oters should s...

"It has been forty years since the close of the war," said Commissioner Warner today, "so that the average age of the Civil war veteran is well on toward 70 years. In view of this fact, I believe we may look for a steady decline in the total number of pen sioners, unless new legislation should add to the list in the meantime." The Spanish war has not proved so fruit ful of pensions as was expected to be the case. Up to date, only a little more than 22, --000 persons have been placed on the list be cause of the casualties of that Avar. Of this number, 17,000 are invalid soldiers and 5,000 are widows.

COLORED MEN'S WEALTH. From a local Chicago paper it is learned that Col. Edward H. Morris. a well-known lawyer of that city, is estimated to be worth $300,000. Col. Morris has been a successful politi cian, and has been the attorney for the colored gamblers of the city. Col. Johnson, from the same source it is learned, is worth not less than $200, --000. For a number of years he has handled the gambling element, among the colored folk in Chicago, and it is claimed he got his wealth in from that source. In whatever manner he got it he seems to have had the good sense to have so invested what he got, as to earn for him a fortune for his old age. Robert T. Motts is another colored man that is worth consider able money, he being able to boast of a property valued at $150,000. Dr. O. J. Davis, of the Windy City, is said to be worth $75,000, while Theo dore W. Jones has some $50,000 to his credit.

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII. NO. 6 Municipal Ownership of Street Railways in Glasgow Glasgow, the commercial metropolis of Scotland, was the first city to adopt munici pal ownership of street railways on a large scale and to carry it to a logical conclusion by operating as well as owning its roads. The success of this pioneer enterprise has stimulated progress all over the world. It is not surprising that Chicago should seek the advice of Mr. Dalrymple, the manager of the Glasgow tramways, when about to make the first experiment in the municipal ownership of street railways in America. The chief officers of the Glasgow tramways have been frequently called in to advise other municipalities, and have been tempted away to occupy other positions. When Mr. Yerkes wanted a man to direct his vast railroad en terprises in London —electric suburban roads and deep-level subways—to remodel an old system and inaugurate a new one, he found him in Mr. John Young, the organizer and first manager o...

oftgo. War was declared between the com pany interests and the municipality. Munici pal elections were fought on the future of the tramways. A spontaneous outburst of civic enthusiasm led to a citizens' victory; municipal ownership was adopted. Defeat ed in the election field, the company inter ests then declined to sell their worn-out ears, their old horses, and their depots at a reasonable price. The city's reply was to build new depots, buy new cars, engage and train a new staff. Without the use of the track it could not adopt electricity, but had to begin with horse traction. There was a dramatic change. At midnight the com pany's cars disappeared from the streets; a few hours later the municipal cars were running. The success was immediate and has been permanent. It will he interesting to state the effect of municipal ownership, and to explain the pol icy which guided the city council.
