the last few weeks and as a final upshot the ac countant has sent in his resignation and Of the grea public who pay the saleries know nothing of the squabble and neither do for Dad pleads ignorance when I ask him the whyfor of some o these And I guess it would not do any good for the public to know about the scrap between the secretary treasurer and the accountr The funny part of it is how the finance committee hold a meet ing and agree to give the accountant what he and then the secre tary puts the kibosh on the whole and the committee backs down so hard as to puncture a hole in the seat of their As to why they did this of none of the business of the great general publh pay the Then o is another iunny thing in how the at least the most of tell people privately how that they think the affairs in the city office are not run and yet when come to the council where there is a newspaper reporter they stick up for the management of the It is not known why they do this oj this too is none of the business of the great public who pay the It is too darn bad that the council crawfished on its whistle Those locomotive whistles are an abomination to nervous people who want to and to the mothers and nurses of It is enough to scare the seven senses out of one of these to have the unearthly screech of the locomotive break the starry stillness of wee sma In other cities they do not allow it and the crossings are just as dangerous a they are The proper caper is for the city to hold to its bylaw and then compel the to pat watchmen and gates at the That ought to be done even when the whistles for in the daytime a person driving or walking on the crossings cannot and does not notice the It would cost the com pany a few hundred doHars to put up the gates and a few hundreds a year to keep the but it only right that they should do and the council is easy to give them the nod to blow their old by the same what is the use of having any whistles blow ing in the at all Nobody wants to know wheu the men go to work at the mills and factories of the city and the companies should put it up to their employes to get to work by the clock instead of by the In the big cities the racket kicked up the whistles has got to such a darn nuisamce that they have had to get after it good and There no sense in either for the em ployes or the for every one has a clock or a watch and dont need to be told when they are hung ry by any screeching Dad has got the idea of enlarging the city That is ood dope sometimes and sometimes it is The name of a big pity is big thing but the name if a big tax rate isalso a big To take in additions makes the city but it increases the job of spending money New parts always want to come into a city because they want city privileges and city and these come It costs a deuce of a lot of money to put in waterworks and and to extend electric light On i the other hand there is a revenue to be derived from Out in the North Ward there are streets where j the city is on one side but is iiOt on the The city has to have the water and light for the people inside the corporation while the other side of the line brings in no money at To take these in would be good But to take those in means taking in than perhaps would not ijive as much money I havent had a talk with Dad to find out just exactly what he intends do ing nbout it but this business of mak ing
