A JUST RULING.
A Butler, Mo., publisher brought
suit against one of his subscribers
who had taken the paper for a time
and then refused to pay, after the
old-fashion with which so many
newspaper makers are sadly familiar.
The subscriber, it is alleged, even
showed to tho magistrate that he had
ordered the sheet discontinued, yet
the Court of Appeals held that the
mere acceptance of a paper created
a liability. In summing up the case
tho judge said:
" The preparation and publication
of a newspaper involves much phy
sical and mental labor, as well as the
outlay of money. Ono who accepts
the paper by continuously taking it
from tho -postofllco, receives a bene
fit and pleasure arising from such
labor and expenditures as fully as If
he had appropriated any other pro
duct of another man's labor, and
by such act he must bo held liable
for tho subscription price."
It Is a fallacy held to many peo
ple that, under -certain circum
stances, they are not obliged to pay
for a newspaper that they have re
ceived for years. It Is true that
the postofflce department has made
somo rulings regarding tho passage
of papers through the malls, but tho
postofflce department has not made,
and can' not make, a ruling that will
affect the collection of a debt be
tween private parties. If you ncccpt
nt tho postofllco a newspaper sent to
your address, tho subscription price
of that paper can bo collected from
you, provided you are not execution
proof. The publisher may have vio
lated a rule of the postofflce In send
ing that paper through tho malls.
That Is a matter between him and
tho postmaster general. If you have

WATER POWER COMMISSION

Harrlsburg, Pa., March 18. Full
stato control not only of tho con

dams for water storago and power
Is foreshndowed by tho action of tho

night in approving thirteen chnrtera

owners of tho charters , agree in

This action Is of stato Importance
as It means that tho commission will
keep tho dams within Its control,
and as fully a dozen big projects of
that kind aro pending, notably In

project, which Involves tho construc
tion of two huge dams and a tunnel
on tho Clarion river, In conjunction
with tho Tloncsta Creek project, will
cost millions of dollars. Tho step Is
ono of tho most Important yet taken
