', editorial   from     the  Toronto    World,
published  the day after the c.ity elcc-
tii ii  down, there.
'flic's tine pcoi-le had been endeav-
iuj;, by, the same methods, to do to
,the people of Toronto what they luive
be 11 trying to do to the people of
l'ornie ever since it was incorporated as a city, .lust before that incorporation look place, the representative of George A. Cox', Robert .1 utility, K. It. Wood, Sir, Henry l'cl-
latl, and oilu-rs, told the people of
Keniij at a meeting of the board of
trade held in the lire hall that if the
City'cf J-'cniic- at any time desired to
take over his company's water plant,
Unit the company .would not lake any
advantage of the'city by demanding,
the " legally authorized bonus, but
would turn it over to the city at its
value. The 'manager has taken . advantage of 'every • legal technicality,
and .in every other way lias obstructed the will of the' people of the city
in, their efforts to'establish their own
si stem, rtiu.siiig,-' to' set-a. price-upon
his plant when asked to do-1 so.
These same people are interested .in
two companies holding franchises in
Toronto,  one  for operating a city el-
- I'ctric light and power plant, the other  to   transmit, power  from   Niagara
. 1'alls.'" They are more heavily interested ■ in the Niagara"" Transmission
Coinpaiiv than in "the city "light, and-
power company,   and as directors    in
- tie  city  cimpauy,   they  made'a  bar-
. gain  ivii.li  themselves ,as  the Niagara
Company .lo supply the city coinpauy
wilh power at "a Very high rate.
Hy relerring to, an'editorial taken
from the Toronto. Glabe, and which
appeared in a late issue of the Ledger, it' will be seen that, the Globe

defeat for the flabby policy of

did, not because they liked JMr. ,l,in-

Mr. Coatsworih less, iiud their feeling was effectually voiced by Ihe- de-

own pickets as directors and owner;
■of the Niagara'Company.' Hut, as is
always the case, their ineshaustibli
'appetite for gain has brought defeat
upon themselves, as is shown by'the
very large vote by which the city has
authorized the council to contract
with tlie Provincial .Government foi
power, and ligh't at a greatly reduced

It serves another notice on the franchise-holding corporations that' the
day of their power is rapidly passing
away, and that they wijl be held to
strict account for the administration,' of tlie public 'services entrusted'
to them. ■ If Mayor Coatswortli desires to re-establish himself in the
confidence of his fellow citizens, .he
must adopt a different policy and set
himself res'.lulely to maintain- the
public rights conferred by the contracts under which the franchise-holding corporations held their-'-'privileges. The citizens have shown, in a

who is foolish cnouglr to cast ai vote

put more chains upon himself,'and to1
place himself more completely in the

ANCIENT Greece will always be.remembered for the fine types of
manhood supplied by the heroes of her battlefields and Uic
athletes of her arenas, but still more will these heroes and athletes
themselves be remembered for the custom they bequeathed to
later eges of hcalir e sore and injured places on their hodSerby
the external application of some secret balm or salv:.   His
Greek charioteers did not emerge from their mad races without some severe bruise or gaping wound; and to anoint
each injury carefully with their favorite: balm was  an
indispensable part of the day's programme. The old Roman
heroes, too, who Were injured by the wild bessl<> in Ihe
now ruined Colosseum of Rome, had to adopt :ituil-r
methods of healing.  If we travel back in history we
find that this external "rubbing" has prcva"led right
from the earliest Union, and Uic only explanation of its survival, ninhlr.tro
