Portlanders had an opportunity
Wednesday night of getting an
insight into the merits of Bon
villo 99 Year System, at a lecture
held in lecture room B of the
Central library building. Tho
subject was "The applicability
of the Bonvillo 'System to the
great industrial enterprises of
tho country," and was well hand
led in a masterly manner by
Fred W. Jobelman, who has had
large experience in corporation
mntters.and is thoroughly famil
iar with the methods employed
by tho stock manipulators of
Wall street. Mr. Jobelman
was associated for several years
with tho principal attorney for
tho Credit Men's Association in
Now York city, and has had ex
ceptional opportunities for study
ing tho giant octapus of "Big
Business" at first hand. Tho
lecture was well attended and
enthusiastically received, and
reference to tho remarkable suc
cess achieved by tho Equal Rights
Company of St. JohiiB, incorpor
ated under tho Bonville 91) Year
System, was loudly applauded.
Arrangements have been made
for tho holding of a series of
lectures dealing with tho system
at the same place every Wednes
day evening at 8 o'clock during
tho remainder of tho year. These
lectures will be free, and St.
Johns folks are specially invited,
Editor of St. Johns Review:
Will you kindly allow mo a few
lines in your paper to corruot a
statement made by you some
live weeks ago in regard to a
statement I mado before tho
council when a petition was in
troduced to the council in regard
to getting the Bull Run water;
that I had a decision in full from
tho Attorney General what wo
could do, or tho city could do. 1
stated that ho would give mo a
decision in full, so I think that
In justice to tho Attorney Gen

correct the statement mado by
Now hero is tho promise that
Mr. Crawford mado to mo when
I first confronted him for his
finding, and I also asked him if
I could impose on his valuable
time, if ho thought it was liablo
that wo could do as stated, but
before any definite decision
could bo mado ns to whether or
not tho city of St. Johns has
tho right to put in or tnko over
the water system, ho thought it
would bo necessary to havo also
a copy of tho city charter before
any definite decision. So, of
course, I sent the city charter
and also a copy of tho water
franchise. But on January tho
9th I had a letter from Mr,
Crawford stating that it was
imnrmsililo for him ut the nrescnt
time to give tho matter the ser
ious consideration it deserves,
but in his finding he states if
we can show that tho water
plant is not efficient and whore
a contract virtually creates a
monopoly, and that monopoly
becomes oppressive, that the
contract may be set aside or ig
nored. Mr. Crawford also in his
finding states that some courts
hold that an exclusive franchise
can be given, and others that ho
cannot. And how can our city
atttfrnoy hand down a decision
to'tho city council when tneiaws
are so complicated that our At
torney General cannot interpret
the same? C. J. ANDERSON.
