There is a guy in our tou-n, And he is wondrous wise, Every time he takes a drink Ho swells nil with cap-I's. Its this, and cap-1 that, And can-I here and there, i b'nlil his tiresome caii-l's Choke the blooming air. He cap-I's in the barroom; He can-l's in the hall; He cap-l's In the springtime, And he cau-l's in the fall. Ho cau-l's in the morning, And as shades of night grow deoi: Those who know him best assert He cap-I's in his sleep. Funny how dialects change in a person, isn'l it? To illustrate, we overheard a hamfat actor pronounce it, "Necyoo Yawk" the other night When we knew him around the old Walnut street "gym" in Cincinnat twenty years ago he used to say "vcr my niudder and fadder came by Yorrick 1 vas a liddle fellar." Tired feet in a switch shanty on a hot summer night are attar of roses compared lo the fetid fumes fizzing from that fierce frazzle that ftoppet from finish to front of the Majestic bill this week. We can't rememhei just what page its on, hut there is a on tlie slatute hooks of Iowa for- bidding the accumulating of money under false pretenses. And hero's r, time when it ought to he enforced. Alazuz, the cleverest of all stage tramps, and the peer of any stage acrobat, is the undisputed hit of the Majestie's bill. His pirouttes, twist- ers, forwards and exceedingly diffi- cult handstands are so cleverly funny that competitors are unable to stea. his act or any part of it. [This is more than we generally aim to say favorably of any hurts lo do it, but there's nothing in his act to knock.] Dorothy Vaughn is working a nice single, but she walks on and off as if she couldn't find her dinner bucket. She's galled like Nell Flaherty, of tl Divil's Bit. Take it from us, Dal. This Jack Johnson Is going lo he the white man's burden for many a day. The old Republican building, own- ed by "Mike" Ford is nearly ready for occupancy. f The Sunday liepublican Inquires of The Tribune "what that Second ave- nue saloon has done for the work- Nothing that wo know of hut just as much as tile Montrose hotel bar, lucked off in an alley and run contrary to a strict interprota tiou of tlie mulct law. That isn't the lirst blow-out (01 up) the Eagles have had. Nor will II he tlie last, never fear. Surest sign of spring is the poster that reads: "Mondays and Tuesdays at the Red Barn, balance of [he week at home." We are makin' oot brawluy, thank ye for sneerin.' Nat Goodwill may do all these things, and he may not do them, but whether or no, a slant at a late pic- ture of his new wife indicates that the sucker has a good -very good eye. It is many a "mnlli" has missed out on copping two in a row like Maxine Elliot and the Good- rich. Tlie Turk stopped peddling rugs long enough to stand Buscli on hi nut, and incidentally acquire a few soft megs. The giimp carnival opens next Monday with the hen, as the principal attraction. It will be remembered that the an- nouncement that this famous bird would appear at the Cctlar Rapids show was exclusively made in this column. Every time wo hear Kensingor's name pronounced it reminds ns of he time we had diphtheria and. lirandma made us gargle. If it lakes two tinhorn gamblers to make oite, how many cloos It take lo reate that wheoze in the back yard f the octopus. Talk about wind-Jamming. Go lown to the chicken show and hear the giimp studs chortle next week, lavvy Blimp spiel, pal? Its great. Say, Vic, just take Murdock, or whoever did ft. off to one side and :ell him quietly, hut forcibly, that were once a whoop ruhon and tnow how to clem, and If he ovor springs another God help the dishes.

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jan. 21, 1809 Tribune: If you will allow me, I wilt ask for some space in your columns to inform tlic people ot Ce- dar Rapids what the west side pco- Dle, who live along or near the Ce- dar Rapids and Iowa City electric line, think concerning the granting of a franchise to any railroad, either steam or electric, that will use our streets and avenues for personal pro- fit. Streets the People. We firmly believe that the streets belong to the people and should be used for the benefit of the people We also believe there should be street cars where the people get the greatest good out of them. But we do not believe our city council should grant one single foot of priv- ilege lo any street car system until the two systems will give transfers from one line to the other. We do not believe that one foot of privilege should be given to any street car system until that mucli talked of loop is made a fact. TJiese tilings the patrons of thr two street ear systems demand from our city commissioners. We know that the steady growth of this the best city In Iowa, will n ten years be better than Jifly thousand, and the company which ;els control of our streets and ave- nues will reap a handsome profit to the individuals who have invested their money in the street ear busi ess. When this system is establish- ed, nothing be allowed like 15 pound to the yard rails. are getting ourselves shaken np enough on a much heavier rail now. Th'e C. R. M. street railway should he given the franchise only when they will satisfy the city of Cedar Rapids that the loop is working and that a pntron can ride from Central Park or Bever Park to Linnwood or Avondale for 5 cents, and likewise from Lin- wood or Avondale to any terminal iu the city of the Cedar Rapids and Marion line, for y cents. We are without an exception work- ng people in this section of Cedar Ilapicis. Our hank accounts are smalt and as long as we consent to these impositions by those .in control of wealth, just that long will we remain poor. We eun ride from O avenue west to Alarion for 12 cents. If we go from Avondale to the Mercy or St. Luke's hospital its 10 cents. If we live a student in Coe college from this part of town, as some of us have, and when compelled to ride a car home it costs 20 cents a day, provid- ing the student does not come borne at noon. Its too much and should not be allowed, and we expect our commissioners to act for Die people 1 not for corporations or individ- uals. WEST SIDBR. Robert Ellis celebrated bis ninety- second birthday Tuesday. Dor over lalf a century he has been a resident of this city. Ho has grown old but the full use of his mental fac- ulties and is physically the superior of many a man twenty years his jun- ior, nut belter than all this Is the ligh esteem and admiration in which he is held by the entire city, merited jy a long career in our midst mar- red by no dishonorable act or blur or blemish.
