one of the weak points In our Htuttj
Koveniment. namely. inseetne safc
Kliardlr.K of public utilities.
Hxperlenee ImvlriH' In many cases
Hhown the Inailenuncy of home rule In
these matter, due to the fact that
when a franchise piopo.ltlon of considerable-
amount is contemplated, Its
.xpons-ors usually plan to rush It
tlirnuKli councils hefoie public dlscns
rlon has had time to crystallize Into
u conservative Judgment upon Its mer
Hh. It may well be urgued that the
state should Intervene, and, as In New
Yoik state, where u railway commls.
flon compels every new applicant for
a railway charter to show reasonable
cause for the (-ranting of a permit to
ko ahead, establish sonu means of In
quiring Judicially Into tho public ne
cessity for additional public utilities.
These comments are not directed
especially at the pendliiK proposition,
which Is entitled to consideration on
Its meilts, but they are siiRRosted by
ll becau.se at piesent there Is no moms
of establishing when an application
for a competitive franchise Is genuine
or when It Is speculative. A local
body like councils is liable to be svwiy
ed by piejudlce. If it dislikes a street
car company or a kus and water com
pany or a telephone company It Is
prone to give a competitive franchise
larcelv as an expression of that dis
like, without taking Into proper ac
count the various permanent factors
in the problem, such, for example, as
the pit-sent or prospective need of com
petition. For, however genuine may
be the Intent of applicants for a com
petitive, franchise to invest thel"
money as oilglnully proposed, the
public convenience Is not bcneMted un
less there Is a Milllclent field for the
investment to pay. If It doesn't pay,

An Interesting Battle.
APOLITICAL battb which
bids fair to become historic
Is Imminent at Albany, and
ll Is one In which the peo
ple of every state In the Union are In
terested, Colonel Hoosevelt threw out
he Bklnulsh lines for It when he put
hrotlgh the i ord bill Imposing a statu
as on franchises. Hut his successor,
Jovernor Odell, the man who had bean
iiiuwn far and wdde us simply "a nia
hlne pulitlclan, who was supposed by
nany to huve been nominated by cor
toratlon Influences for tho express pur
josh of undoing what Hoosevelt had

pera'tlons until the combat bids fulr

'Ions of tho stuto lo Its Incorporated
Hoosevelt only proposed that cor
porations owning franchises' should
oay the same rute of taxes on the us
essed valuation of these franchises
hat the ordinary home-owning citizen
.as to pay on tho assessed valuation of
lis little property, and for this propo
rtion, which ho put through Into law,

tlclan, no sooner takes Roosevelt's
place thnn, without a single prelimi
nary flourish, ho notifies tho publics
that he proposes to exert his Influence
to secure legislative abolition of nil dl
tect taxation for stale purposes. Last
year direct tnxatlon cost the people of
the lCmplie stato for Hchools, canals
and general purposes $10,70i,Hi3.39 nnd
Odell's purpose Is to take this bur

Ills plan In detail contemplates a
tax of 1 per cent, upon the capital nnd
surplus of banks and trust companies!
n similar tax upon the surplus of sav
ings banks and upon tho capital and
surplus of Insurance nnd title guaran
tee and surety companies; a general
revision of tne law taxing corpora
tions upon their capital nnd dividend,
with n minimum of l', mills on each
dollar of authorized capital stock of
companies organized In New York,
said tax lo Incrensa a quarter uf a
mill for each one per cent, of dividend
nbove C per cent., except in the case of
manufacturing conjurations whose
plants nre located within the state,
they being exempt; likewise tho exac
tion of this tax from foreign corpora
tions doing business within the state,
assessment to be proportlonnl to as
sets within the state; and finally the
intention of present tuxes on the gross
earnings of transportation corpora
tions. How far this plan vlll affect tho
pooketbooks at which It Is aimed can
be conjectiued only. The Albany cor
respondent of tho Nw York Herald
says it Is expected to produce, with
present receipts ($1:1,000,000) for stato
purposes from Indirect sources, t-i,-600,000
a year, tho $9,600,000 of extra
revenue being distributed as follows:
Tax on Insurance companies, $1,700,
000; on savings banks, $1,500,000; on
national and state banks, $2,000,000;
additional on corporations, $3,000,000:
and on trust companies, $1,400,000. "One
of the most beneficent results," this
correspondent adds, "will be to prevent
tho 'watering' of stock, becausa every
share of 'water' will be as much sub
ject to taxation as a share of actual
value-drawing capacity. No corpora
tion can afford to Increase? Its capitali

orable tax collector Is lying In wait to
levy tribute on each share of the In
All kinds of explanations are afloat
as to Governor Odell's motive In bring
ing this sweeping scheme of Increased
corporate taxation Into view. Some
say It Is a bid for u better understand
ing with the big financial Interests In
New York city. Others allege that it
Is a gallery play for tho purpose of
disarming the political strength of the
vice-president-elect. which largely
turns upon his strenuous insistence
upon the franchise tax. Yet others
contend thnt Odell Is proceeding de-
llbei.itely to train as an anti-trust
candidate for the presidency three
; years hence. The most plausible cx-
i planatlon Is that he Is proceeding with
I honest motives to work out a practical
solution of the groat problem of un
equal taxation, recognized by every
body to be one of the most Important
and dllllcult problems In the pathwuy
of government. How he will succeed
remains to be seen. The power which
will bo massed against his programme
at Albany, represented by more than
30,000 coiporatlons with a total capi
talization of many billions, will bo al
most Inestimably large and when ll
will not dare to hazard open opposi
tion It will work along tho far more
effective lines of securing amendment
and delay. Hut it Is something to know
that In tho stronghold of corporate
wealth there Is courage enough among
the men In public life to undertake
tlie equitable revision of tnxatlon and
thus to disprove the pessimistic asser
tion that all manhood In politics Is
The iii'inurr In which tho Cub-in

illustration of Cuban gratitude. It
will not pay to trust such Ingrates

Leonard Wood, who three years ago
was a captain, today Is a brigadier

longer has a chance.
Senator Teller, with his preniaturo
Cuban resolution, Is not the first
statesman who has consulted his emo
tions at the cost of his common

The essential thing for Fcranton Is
a new charter fitted to Scranton'a
needs. Hipper, or no ripper, keep
your mind on the main point.
Ity nil accounts, Venezuela's pot-and-kettle
asphalt war Is a good thing
for the United States to keep out of.
In the matter of Cuba Is Is well to
remember that the American pooplo
also owe something to themselves.
Men now nllve may llo lo beo tho
end of tho Chinese puzzle, but It would
l.t- null to wager on It.
A way to aold, senatorial deadlocks
Is to permit the plurality to elect.

AN OBLIGATION OF DUTY.
From tlu Philadelphia Press,
The relation lietvvren Cuba and the t'nlted
States inie-t be de-ttrinlmil ami adjusted as ter
talnly as the constitution must l- pcrtVitcd, It
I ot.ntt tided in some- quarters that the l'nlli-1

I and tint the Independence we have piomised Is
incioneiiaiiie wlllt any supervisory authority on
our part. 'I his ce mention disregards tho funda
mental conditions of Ihe tayc.
if we hail no moral obligations and if there
were no futuie lomequinees, it would be far
the easiest and nimplc.t thing to accept this
view, and, upon Ihe prt-entation of the Con.
ttitiitlun, to withdraw from all further respon
nihility and partielpitlon In ( uba. If we wcie
Ihlrklii? only of our own Immediate Interests and
conduit, this Is whal we should tin. The United
States Is seeking nothing in Cuba for lueb.
c don't want annexation. We don't want tx
ploltatlon. We havo far less need of Cuba than
Cuba has of us. It would be for our present
irllef to wash our hands of Cuba and leave tho
islam! to go It alone.
Hut there are two deiMve reasons why this
cannot bo dom. In the first plate, we arc un
der the obligation! of a great ami sacred trurt
which Imposes upon us tie duty to Cuba and
to IRj or'd of guaranteeing peace, security
and Juatke. In the second plate, we cannot af

THE CUBAN PHOBLEM.
W, 15. Ctirtla In the Chicago HecoiH.
(encrally speaking, every man in both homes
rrgards annexation as the "manifest destiny"
of Cuba, but alm-Mt every one agrees that we
must enny out the Teller resolution' In good
faith, giving the t-eoplc of that Island a chant e,
eipectlng that they will soon apeal for ad
mission Into the American union. At the same
time, It is necessary to keep hold of the halter
to prevent the adventurers who are now- posing
as statesmen from running away with Cuba, or
robbing It, or loading It with debt, or Involving
It In complications, with forrlgn powers.
From Hie Xew York Tribune.
This country does not want to lelaln-ltl
present contiol ( Cuba any longer than Is
right ami ncccs.iry, but belnre It relinquishes
It ll wants to make sure that there will be no
need of Its again Intervening In the Island nnd
IP-establishing- such control. Cuba lixs tost tho
United States In the last t-rxcntx-Hvc years en
tlrcly too much, In fic-asure and In blood, for
this nation to run anv more risks conceirln.1
It. Since the dajte of Momoe Ihe United States
lias maintained u ttrtaln reason itile' xantage
ground with rcspett to that inline!, iirM less
than three jcais ago it sealed its title thrie-to
with the blood of many of Its bravest and best
sons. That ground Is not now gratuitously to
be abandoned, in shadouy hope of legalniiig It
ill some far off "nniiina." This nation will
look befoic its leaps out uf Cubs.
NUBS OF KNOWLEDGE.
It may be noted as an acreeable evidence of tho
spread of Kgj-ptologli al enthusiasm in Amnio i
