Following the introduction of Richard Kit-man into the light as one of the heaviest stockholders in the lighting and the water com- pany, comes the news that Governor Sparks, who is now in Texas, Is disposing of his immense real estate holdings there in order to have sufficient capital to swing his end of the big deal.
