telephones are being undertaken and a system of fire insurance is be ing discussed Municipal banks mu nicipal pawnshops municipal bakeries and even municipal collieries have been seriously proposed Increase of Local Indebtedness rush of English municipalities into speculative enterprises has result ed in an enormous increase in local indebtedness Last year sanction was given for amounting in the ag gregate to not less than and the average amount added in each of the last three has been just short of Never before has there been any approach to these fig ures In 3891 the sum was 405 while the average for some years previously nd been about 000 In 1S75 the English local debt was about if20 a head of the popula tion It is now over fCiO How the Increase Is Excused The excuse offered for the enormous increase of local debt in England is that a considerable part of it has been contracted for productive industries But the profits from many of these concerns under municipal are small indeed The only reliable estimate on these profits may be found in a paper by the president of the Royal Statistical Society in which he showed that there was an average net profit for the five years ended

private companies in England has been as great iC not greater and as a rule the price chnrged under exactly simi lar conditions is less than that charged by the municipalities In short in England as elsewhere the private companies have set the pace in enterprise qualify of gas and price In a recent official inquiry these facts were clearly brought out It was shown that all enterprise in the gas industry bas come from companies because companies have greater mo tive for enterprise The municipali ties may follow privateenterprise they have never been known to lead In the case of electric lighting the advocate of municipal ownership in England claims the superiority of public ownership is Let us see A committee of the London Chamber of Commerce recently took out the figures from the official re turns relating to electric lighting un dertakings in England and Wales for the purpose of ascertaining the net profits that is it endeavored to show what the ratepayer received in return for the risk he takes in guar anteeing the undertaking and the re sult showed that on a total capital of and allowing for deprecia tion or oneeighth of 1 per cent per annum the average annual margin of surplus inclusive of this was only CQUfil to onethird ot 1 pel cent n year on the total cap ital expended Aside from the business merits of the ease there is another view of the subject that has been brought out strongly by the London Times tnat municipal enterprise and progres sive municipalities are really being made the stepping stones to the col lective state Toward this end it is claimed
