OFFICIAL PAPER OF TULSA COUNTY.
WIRT G. McCARTY, Editor.
C. 0. WRIGHT, Business Manager.
Sunday Morning and every Week Afternoon except Saturday By THE TULSA PUBLISHING COMPANY.
The walking public is so fond of jumping upon automo*
bilists for their indiscretion that it is a welcome change to be
able to present a case in behalf ot the oft-accused motorists.
• Several drivers of automobiles have called attention to
the Eagle to a wanton practice which is becoming more com-
mon around the city of throwing glass and other tire-destroy-
ing objects in the public roads.
Broken bottles, broken glass insulators from electric wire
and telephone poles are frequently encountered in the high-
ways, and frequently work havoc with automobile tires.
Around Wichita are more than a thousand automobiles
and motorcycles, to say nothing of the lesser swarm of bicy cles
all of which property i^ seriously endangered by the presence
of broken glass in the streets and on the highways.
These machines carry at least $ 100,000 worth of tires,
property which iv menaced by glavv in the road, as much as
buildings are by fire.
If the present carlessness keeps up, the tire ow ners ought
to get together to try for legislation making such v.ireles>
throwing of glass in the road a felony .—\S ichita Eagle.
BEAUTIFICATION AS BUSINESS ASSET.
A business man went to visit Memphis not long ago, to
see what advantages the city offered as a place to establish a
branch of his factory. The first thing he said to the two Mem-
phis citizens w ho met him at the train was:
‘•Now', let us hop into a machine and go out and see how
you are fixed for parks and boulevards and public buildings.
‘•Please explain,” he was asked. “Do you mean to say
that you are such a lover of the beautiful that you wouldn’t lo-
cate your branch in a city that has not its fair proportion of j
parks, or an artistic city hall, and that sort of thing?"
“ -Lover of the beautiful,’ nothing!" was the prompt re-;
ply. ”1 make furniture. 1 must have plenty of good steady-
help to do it. No city is a good city for the man who must
ha\e good, steady help unless it has kept step with other cities
and provided places for the help's sane and healthful recrea-
tion. That’s just business. This is, also, a new day in the
making of public buildings; and if a city hasn’t kept step there,
either, and hasn’t started a movement for fine, artistic civic
buildings it is a sign that something is wrong with that com-
munity. It isn't on to its job."
It may be added that the manufacturer decided to estab-
lish his branch in Memphis.—Henry Oven, jn the World’s
MONOPOLY AND HIGH PRICES.
The very reason for the existence of the monopoly is that
it means the power to advance prices. Men live and die in at
struggle to >ecure a monopoly with that one object in view.
The United States government, by law, secures to an in-
ventor a monopoly in order that he may be fully rewarded. So
we had a legally established monopoly of the sewing machine
for many years. It was extended through the addition of sub-
sequent inventions until it ran for fully forty years. Then the
cost of the sewing machine was vastly reduced, and it was
brought within the reach of thousands who longed for its aid,
but were unable to pay its cost.
I he telephone Was for many years a legalized monopoly,
but when the fundamental patents expired and we had compe-
tition the development o( the telephone took on a new phase
What i> true about legalized monopoly as based upon!
patents is true of monopoly following cony etition or legaliz-
ed monopoly based upon the protective tariit. The purpose of
one and all is the same—that is, to exact more for an article
than its cost justifies, to enrich the owners of the patents or the
ow ners of the plants beyond the legitimate weai'. secured J
through services done.
Let us make no mistake. The dream that a monop-
olist is going to share his profits with the public is an idle dream

de him to follow a course so altrustic. When a man fights to
