The ill estion of incorporating Bakers Fiehl giving it a Strong government Good streets Ami sidewalks and in a t Housand ways benefiting and beautify ing the town is one which interests every citizen he he taxpayer or not. The Manifest advantages of incorporation Are so Many and the valid objections to it so few that it has no longer Leeomea question with the solid citizens of shall it he done but Only when it shall be done. Some move toward incorporating Bakersfield should be made at once i and the sooner the latter. Below will la pursuant to Call a number of re pub cleans met in Tim supreme court room monday night. The meeting was called to order by a. La. Scribner. S. C. Smith was chosen temporary chairman and ii. A a. Bender Secretary. After some discussion of ways and Means the chairman appointed a committee of nine on permanent organization and membership As follows h. In. Bender a. A. Doherty s a Burnup c. E. Sherman j. By.

A general discussion followed and a committee of t Bree was chosen by the chair to urge the building of a wigwam j to bt1 used by All parties. It was held that a cheap Structure could in made very useful for various purposes and that if citizens join together the Structure could easily be built. S. A. Bur-1 Nap a. J. Doherty and f. E. Valentine were appointed members of this committee. It was announced that Steps Are being work will within or omm wicca ton Days. All the hights id Way secured. Something about the new line. A personal. Or. And min. A. S. Tevis left for san Francisco monday night. Sid a Alser returned from a trip to the hot Springs on monday. D. M. Pyle goes to Fresno tonight to attend the horticultural convention. Came to town from sunday returning miscellaneous. Be found Brief interviews with some of tile citizens of Bakersfield on the ques taken toward the formation of another lion of incorporation and from Day to Day As space will permit interviews will run until everyone who Bas anything to say for or against the proposed improvement has been heard. S. A. Fergusson tin agent for tile Kern county land company said a personally i am strongly in favor of incorporating this town at the earliest possible moment. Tile company i represent will oppose it but i say freely it is my conviction that this town will never grow and thrive until it has a government of its own. Look at our police. Aah by i have been told a dozen times by men coming Here that their Only objections to Bakersfield was that tile Lawless element run things As they pleased. Aah a need the Strong hand of a town marshal and Bis deputies men who w ill do their duty and then if that class of parasites who toil not neither do they spin a but continue to live and dress Well remain Here they can by taken care of. A again Bakersfield should have the Best streets of and town in California. Ave have it our very doors on the one Side tin finest gravel Beds Iii the world Aud on the other Side inexhaustible Beds of Asphaltum. Aah till proper streets made and uttered there could be kept running on Boti sides of every thoroughfare in this town constantly running streams of pure Witter which in the hot summer Days would not Only lower Tho temperature but insure Good health by swooning away All refuse ii lid garbage. In summer honour streets become overgrown with weeds. So Rich i our soil Here that weeds which elsewhere grow As weeds Here become veritable tree.-. The people outside of the town object to expending the county Money for fixing in streets of this town. They say they have As Good a right to have the door Yards of their ranches cleaned As a people who live Here Aud they have hut once let us incorporate Aud we can change All that. A incorporate by Jill Means and that Iii once is my opinion of the matter a concluded or. Fergusson emphatically. E. E. Young Secretary of Tho land company w As asked for his views Ami answered a if any of us should blushed to live in a land which bad no government we would indignantly refuse no matter what other inducements might in offered. Vet a town or City is a Niin Aturo world and needs a special government of its own. The association and aggregation of individuals create new conditions which necessitate new rules of action not applicable to sequestered Rural districts. A have have to pay for what we get. Ana cannot expect the advantages of City life tit the expense of the county j taxpayer. Ave must vote on what we want and then pay for it when we get it. The county taxpayers Are not will-1 Jug to la taxed to put Down our sidewalks. They arc not particular whether our streets Are properly severed or lighted. A a briefly if we mean to attach ourselves to the rear cur of the nineteenth Century train of Progress we should resolve ourselves into a political unit. A flip unit is the basis of All legislation is Well As tile science of numbers. Paraphrasing the words of a great statesman Aud applying them to Bakersfield Assi town we would say we must incorporate we must incorporate or we must Nav. Ii. Scribner said he was in favor of corporation whenever it could be Bown that the assessment Roll of the proposed City was sufficient to pay Iii taxes for the improvements the citizens now pay for by subscription. Tin hold tilt tis hoodlum Clement Lins Iii this town is not Only surprising but alarming of the irresponsible element is to run the affairs of kids town elect the the officers and practically make and interpret the Laws the sooner tile Tow n puts up the sign a for rent Rhean a and moves out the better for the accent people. The time has come for action when the men of pro Yerty Aud standing must array themselves on one Side of this question or the other. Every town in the Valley has had a Bif Ilar experience and in every instance where the respectable element Bas Given the hoodlums open Battle they Nave won. Fresno bad to have a vigilance committee before the toughs Wen conquered and it May come to such a pass that Bakersfield will lie form to follow its example. Let it in Iio a ii not.
