The last Register, in publwhing an account of the proposed new street railway company, goes 'out of lts way to give a vicious kick at a iiumber of our ood citi.ens whi) jolned together couplu of years ago to build and equip for our city asimilar enterprise. It is perhaps not known to the young new cimer who presides over the destiuies of that many sided sheet, that the persons who composed that company were all reputable citizens of Ann Arbor, men who have capital invested here In busines, and their desire was to help build up the city. To slur such men may be a conunendable thing to do, and then again it may not. There is not a membcr qf that company but would be glad to see a street railway put in here; in fact they are men who heartily sanction any enterprise that wlll teud to bjild up and lmprove our city.
