FUNCTIONS OF THE STATE.
Interesting Analysis Made by Bishop
Stang of Fall River.
In a recent address in St. Mary’s
cathedral Bishop Stang of Fall River
thus analyzed tl\e functions of the
“The state should not absorb the
rights of individuals, but should keep
them inviolate unless they clash with
the common good and the interests of
others. The proper office of the gov
ernment is to foster public well being
and private prosperity by maintaining
peace and good order, safeguarding
family life, respecting religion and
punishing evil doers.
“Civil authority may step in to in
terfere if through strikes there is im
minent danger of disturbance to the
public peace, if in workshops and fac
tories there is danger to morals
through the mixing of sexes or from
any occasion of evil, if the health of
laltorers is endangered by excessive
work or the want of sanitary arrange
ments or if labor is unsulted to sex or
age, but the state should not intervene
in or meddle with private concerns any
further than is required for the rem
edy of the evil or the removal of the
•danger. The state should not only
protect private ownership as some
thing sacred and inviolable, but its pol
icy should be to induce as many people
as possible to become owners. The

Twice In Jeopardy.
An old negro was brought before a
justice In Mobile. It seemed that
Uncle Mose had fallen foul of a bulldog
while in tlie act of entering the hen
house of the dog’s ovvuer.
“Look here. Uncle Mose,” the justice
said informally, “didn’t I give you ten
days last month for this same thing?
Same henhouse you were trying to get
into. What have you got to say for

WILL RUN FOR GON6RESS.
Rumors are in circulation to the ef
fect that Hon. O. H. B. Bloodworth
will be in the race for Congress from
the Gth and will not run for the
Judgeship of the Flynfc circuit as was
at first predicted. Mr. Bloodworth
is very popular and makes friends
readily. Hon. Chas. L. Bartlett the
present member from the Gth is also
an old campaigner and very popular,
and this, coupled with the fine rec
ord he has made in Congress makes
it look extremely interesting nt this
time, and we predict the old sixtji
twill be up against a real campaign,
such as has not been seen since the
days when Whitfield and Bartlett
' made the race fourteen years ago.

SEVENTEEN PER CENT A YEAR.
Depreciation of the Electric Plant In a
Minnesota Town —Interesting Holdup.
The burning down of the municipal
electric light plant of East Grand
Forks, Minn., lias probably settled the
question of its abandonment, which
was under discussion prior to the fire.
A well Informed correspondent writes
that “the plnnt hns furnished a some
what Indifferent service and did not
earn enough to pay the fuel and labor
accounts, to say nothing about Inter
est ou investment, depreciation, etc.,”
in spite of its charging private custom
ers $l2O a year for 1.2(H) e. p. arcs on
As East Grand Forks Is a border
town and right across the line in
North Dakota (a prohibition state) Is
the city of Grand Forks, about 00 per
cent of the business houses in East
Grand Forks are saloons. Many of
these got their electric lights from a
private company In Grand Forks, be
cause the service was better and the
price lower, until the council passed a
resolution to the effect thut no saloon
would be licensed unless It patronized
the municipal plunt.
There is a curious discrepancy be
tween the various reports as to the
value of the plant. In January the
city authorities reported that the plant
had cost $32,000. Three months later
they estimated the Are loss at SIO,OOO,
although we understand that the plant
Is entirely destroyed, nnd adjusted the
loss at $5,000, the plant having been In
sured for $8,400. As It was Installed In
1002, It looks us though the deprecia
tion amounted to 84 per cent In five
years, or 17 per cent a year. The plant
will probably not be rebuilt.

A JUDICIAL WARNING.
Justice Brewer of United States Bu
prams Court on Public Ownership.
There Is this Important difference!
between public and private Indebted
ness: The Individual may mortgage Ills'
home or other property, and If the pur
pose for which the mortgage Is given
proves a failure the property may bo
lost to him, and ou his death his heirs
simply receive so much less thnu they
otherwise would, but the indebtedness
casts no burden upon them. It may
wipe out Ills entire property nnd they
receive nothing. To that extent they
may suffer if a failure to Inherit prop
erty can be called suffering. But pub
lic Indebtedness Is of a different char
acter. It does not wipe out property
now existing, but it casts it burden
upon the industries and toll of those
who come after us. Interest and prin
cipal are met by taxes, and taxes con
tinue from age to age until the debt is
paid. They who come after us, who
may receive little or no benefit from
the debt, are called upon to contribute
the proceeds of their labor to its pay
ment. In other words, while private
Indebtedness does not mortgage or in
cumber future industry nnd labor, pub
lic indebtedness does. And In piling
up public Indebtedness wo too often
forget that the future will have its bur
dens—that there will be demands upon
it for expenditures. Improvements and*
conveniences corresponding to the life
of that day will be needed. So that
there Is Injustice In creating a public*
Indebtedness for Improvements which
will be mainly nvnilnble In our day
and only to a slight degree of benefit
to those who come after us. Indeed,
generally speaking, It is fair to
each generation to determine what
amount of public burdens It will a#r
Bume, and each Bhould take care of Its*
own public Indebtedness. Leslie’s
