See the County but the Toll Gates Will Be Torn Down. The Chicago Chronicle gives editorial expression to some views on Ihe low car fare question that are peculiarly applicable to conditions in Port Wayne where the monopoly capitalized at and bonded at has a plant whose actual value, leaving out the franchise, is' aboul and pays taxes on The arlicle follows: "Tho legislature of the stale of New York has under consideration a bill having for its purpose regulation of streei railway fares in the interest of the people. The measure grows out of u report made by a legislative committee which had been for a year engaged in investigation of the methods of street car corporations. The report is of value as giving the force of an official presentment of facts which in themselves have long been matter of evidence gathered in eight of the prin-" cipal cities of the state, mainly in the form of testimony by street railroad officials. STOCK JOBBER IN EVIDENCE. "Naturally enough the committee finds the devices of the professional the evil of street railway management. Beginning with the abuse known as overcapitalization, proceeding through the cognate processes of robbery in which construction companies and equipment companies are the chief fac-lors, the corporation ultimately is put in 11 position in which are necessary to make even a show of reasonable profit on the enormous volume of securities with which it is loaded TEN TIMES CA8II VALUE. 'We have says the report, 'some cases where tho companies stand charged with capital stock, bonds and other indebtedness nearly or quite ten times ihe actual cash cost of construction and equipment. In one instance these charges exceed per mile Of single horse car track and this included nothing but the track itself and the slreet repairs, whereas in Iruth and in fact it would cost less than one-tenth that sum to construct .ft anew.' This is scarcely an unusual case. It might not improbably be paralleled in Chicago. The single fact that throughout the nation street railways, mile for mile, ars more than twice as heavily capitalized as steam railways though the latter have. to buy their rights of way and spend vastly more on equipment is enough to deinonslrate the fact of scandalous stock watering in the corporations to which all residents of cities pay tribute. "The remedy suggested by the New York committee is disappointing. To prevent stock watering in the future it suggests ii law prohibiting the capiiali-zation of companies for more than the actual cost of franchise and plant and 50 per cent in addiiton thereto. This may be we well enough in its way, but it- is locking the stable door after the thief and horse arc gone. Nearly every conceivable public franchise has been granted and it is to the effort at securing at least partial restitution from the monopolists now holding these licenses to lax that people turn with the greater interest. The New York commitlce nsks enactment of a law compelling roads earning moro than 5 per cent on their capital stock to sell tickets at the rate of iJO for good during the 'rush hours.' CHEAP FAKES A LIVE ISSUE. "The obvious criticism of this measure is that it encouragos the practice which elsewhere in its report the committee deprecates. The road most heavily capitalized will be least likely to earn its 5 per cent. The road honestly built will come within the purview of the law. "It would be 'better that this New York law should be defeated. If enacted il will stand in the way of more radical and determined regulation of street railway fares. In the present state of the public mind acceptance of compromise is surrender to ihe corporations; half way measures are complete defeat for the people. In every city of the union public sentiment is aroused by tho issue of cheap fares; newspapers press the people's claims, politicians dare not do more than dotliie frank expressions of their views. If there be persistence, energy and sturdy refusal lo accept :t husk instead of a kernel the people in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago will bo enjoying the economy of a it-cent fare before another leap A.

MADRID, March The American legation is surrounded for protection bv gendarmes, both mounted ami on foot. Nobody is allowed lo approach the legation. Taylor's private residence is similarly protected and the entire city garrison is under arms, prepared lo move at a moment's notice. Premier Canvoas has telegraphed instructions to the provinces to give the fullest protection to representatives of the United States. The Barcelona affair has caused the greatest apprehension and the war spirit is manifested everywhere. The The populace is thoroughly aroused and the feeling against the resident-Americans, which is intensely bilter, has already been manifested by acts of violence in many parts of this city. The newspapers, with but few exceptions, encourage the warlike sentiment of the people. They contend lliat Spam, notwithstanding her impoverished treasury, cannot afford to let pass unnoticed an insult offered her by the passage of the Senate resolutions, which are regarded as nothing less than a challenge to war.

It is in length 15 miles, in which there is a fall of about eight feet from the mines to Lake Superior. On account of the topography an endless chain cable Is impracticable, and it is, therefore, proposed to construct an ordinary trol'oy line without a power house. The loaded trains come djwn from the mines generating current, which is to be transmitted to the trolley line and from it lo ihe cars going up grade. The loaded cars weigh 25 tons and each train of 10 or 15 cars will have a motor car; the difference in weight between the light and loaded trains is thought to suffice to overcome the loss of power in the transmission and machinery.
