I wish to Correct some of the errors regarding the proposed City slight Plant which appeared in your Issue of last saturday Over the signature of tax payer. First. While we cannot Tell exactly what the Plant will Cost Complete yet we know it will fall several thousand dollars Short of tax payer s estimate 335,000. Second. Tax payer charges up live employees at a total expense of 33.950. In fact we would want but three at an expense not exceeding 33,150. Third. Carbons would Cost us not More than 3050, As against tax payers 3800. Fourth. Water Oil. Waste brushes and repairs will not Cost More than 3350 As against tax payers 3500. Fifth. Tax payer says the loss to the City in taxes will lie 3475. This is certainly the most inexcusable statement of All. Why did not tax payer go to the City treasurer s records and get the Correct amount and state it to the people truly the Gas and electric plants together Here Are assessed at 340, on this they i. Fixes at 85 cents tier 31110. Which makes the total tax 3340 Wjk t year. Now what would the City actually lose in taxes first. Let us find what amount of the water a Light company s Plant would be displaced. It would lie this 80 arc lamps. 13 Miles of circuits Dynamo capacity for 80 arc lamps of 1,200 Candle Power making a total at outside figures of 38,713.50. Taxes at 85 cents per 3100 which the City would actually lose would be 374.00 a Ter year against tax payer s 3475 taking tax payer s expenses which amount to 33.803,94 per year from this 39,403 we have 30.803.00. Now compare the two plants fairly. The water and Light company propose to give us 80 lights of 1,200 Candle Juwer each for 350 tier lamp which makes 96,000 Candle Power for 34.000 per year. The City proposes to furnish 122 lamps of 2.000 Candle Power each which makes 244,000 Candle Power. This rated at the water and Light company s proposed a a Rice would entitle the City to 310,160 per year for running expenses. Or to make it More Plain if the City were to rent of the water and Light company 132 lamps of 2.000 Candle Power each at the same 6amo ratio As they proposed that is 350 per year 1,200 Candle Power we would have to the sum of 310,160 per year or 33,357.94 per year More than it will actually Cost the City. Now tax Vayer lie fair and honest when you write on this subject. State the facts As they will occur. W. C. Carib. The a Farmers Alliance again heard from. To the editor of the journal. The journal in reply to the Quot Farmers Alliance Quot communication published in the journal March 21st. Says that it did not say that the Quot Farmers Alliance was a huge political Structure with ignorance indolence and shiftless Ness written on its Banner nor anything that could lie construed to menu such let us see. It virtually save that the Quot Farmers Alliance and other farm organizations Are political organizations which Webster defines As it so peaks of the Low Grade of the labor of Farmers which Means ignorance for Webster defines Low As shallow. Besides it makes the inference As Strong As the writer could demonstrate it that the Farmers expect Congress to furnish them with Large crops of farm products and also that the Farmers depend on political fanning. This fully establishes the ignorance spoke of by Quot a Farmers then it says the Farmers Are shiftless. Now this is sufficient to prove to anyone that the journal did. If not directly indirectly say that the Farmers Alliance and the other form organizations Are huge political Street ures As stated above. It says no reflection was cast or intended to lie cast on the Alliance. If this to True Why did the writer not Tell what the Farmers Council is Good for if anything at All and not ridicule the furiness by every stroke of his pen. The object of the writer is Plain to the average Farmer. It is to try to deceive the Farmers by teaching them that they should not take any part in political matters but just dig away on your farms fifteen hours out of Twenty four and we Violit Call Bosses will attend to political Matt Orr. The Farmers generally know enough to satisfy them that the Fine spun theories of the Montgomery county Council is not All that they As a class stand in need of to relieve them of the great Load of oppression that is crushing the life out of the agricultural interests of our great country through class legislation. And now we would advise the journal to read up on the appropriations or our last Congress and it will lie Able to sign a the Quot absurdities Quot which it ski Eiziks of comes in. Or. Joe Cannon who was chairman of the appropriations com Mii Teo in Congress reports the appropriations of the fifty first Congress and not the fiftieth is stated in journals reply to lie Only 312,000,000 less than 31.000,000,000 and or. Dockery of Missouri corrects a few mistakes of Cannon s report which makes it appear that the fifty first Congress gave away at least 31,008,873.129,55 of the people s Money which is equal to five dollars for every inhabitant of the United states or eighty dollars for every head of each family for two years.

Ensminger,i03 East main the journal Calls these figures absurd it guts Back on Joe Cannon one of Illinois Best republicans and if the journal wishes to speak of the political differences lie tween it and the Farmers Alliance As intimated the Way is open. A Farmers Alliance. A hallowed spot. The House in which the meeting of Dura and Scott took place. One of the most interesting of All tha literary landmarks of Edinburgh naturally la the House in which Burns and Soott met for the first and Only time. Tho Story Lias been often told by Scott himself and by others who were present and is familiar to All admirers of both poets but Tho question of the identity of the House has been the subject of much discussion among the local historians and antiquarians for Many years. That it was Tho House of prof. Adam Ferguson there is no doubt but As to where tie professor at that time lived the doctors differ. In Peter Williamson a Edinburgh directory of 1780-8, his address is Given As Argyll Square which was near the University and which disappeared on the construction of Chambers Street and this fact led to the inference that the interview must have occurred in that place As Burns was in Edinburgh during the Winter of 86-7. But Scott himself Speaks of Ferguson As living in an insulated House some distance from Tho town Argyle Square was almost in the heart of the pity i in a biographical sketch of Ferguson. Printed in Tho transactions of the Edinburgh Royal society 1601-ithe writer says he lived at that time a in a suburb called the Sci Ennis a Loury Cockburn in his memorials says a old Adam Ferguson lived just Quot East of my father s House a which would Point clearly to the neighbourhood of the sciences and to Crown All or. Archibald Munro. In a letter to one of the Edinburgh papers published about ten years ago says he found a printed record in the Register office showing that in Row. Ferguson disposed of his House in Argyll Square on october 3. 1780�?almost two months before Burns arrived in town and that he got Possession of by Rennes House on the 11th of october of the same year. This must surely Pettlo the question of locality. Certain Antiquaries assert that the Stone ctr Tago now called Alice Villa and numbered 2 sciences Hill was Ferguson a Home a Oitim which neither the size nor the modern construction of the House would seem to warrant so that the old building or what is left of it still known As sciences House certainly appears to have been whore Rel lilo Burns ordained sir Walter it stands on the North Side of braids place which is not numbered two doors from Tho Street called Quot the the present front entirely rebuilt was the Back of the House occupied by Ferguson. The original front still remaining in part looked out upon its own grounds now a paved Yard full of Olill Dren and of drying clothes. This front is not visible from the streets about it and the fact of its existence is comparatively unknown even to the inhabitants of its own immediate neighbourhood. Sciences House in its Day must have been an imposing mansion. It has four windows in breadth and is three stories High on its roof is a Balustrade and groups of Flowers and fruits carved in Stone Are still to be seen upon it. The name Sci Ennis by the Way is derived from the old Convent of St Katherine of Siena which once stood near by and the word is pronounced in tie local vernacular As if spelled the fact that All of theae Points Are now for the first time established and made Public must be Tho excuse for the Devotion of so much space to this particular Hutton in harpers Magazine. You see this so do about 5,000 other people on the Theo that on an average five persons read each paper. Suppose your and was Here a huge a it evil anti. Sunday while a Little boy was wandering on Tho Beach at Inland Cove he was startled by seeing a Large and strange looking object approaching the Laud Wash. The Little fellow raced Home stating that something came after him out of Tho water. This was sufficient to attract older person to the Beach where they found a huge squid or Cettl Fisli High and dry. Its extreme length was thirty two feet the tentacles alone measuring Twenty one feet. The body was much larger than that of an Ordinary horse and the Pelt three inches in thickness. It was Cut no before being removed. We believe that this is a third cuttlefish which has come to in this manner in this Hay within the last few years one having become stranded in Smith s sound and another was similarly unfortunate near Trinity n. Of record. Ascended tie Traunstein. Two gentlemen from Gin Unden ascended the Traunstein successfully though with great difficulty. When they left Munden at 8 30 in Tho morning the thermometer was 20 dogs. Lie Low freezing Point. When they reached Tho Summit at 1 o clock it was 40 dogs. Below freezing. One of the climbers says that Tho View from the top was the most extensive one he has yet seen Al though he has ascended the Traunstein fifty one times. The tourists Cohl not remain Long at the Summit As the North wind was very Sharp. The descent took Only an hour and a Quarter. The Traunstein Peak is 5,540 feet Cor. London news.
