Secy s. Blackwood Fob received the december number of this valuable work. All lovers of Good in this what wish to condemn is the system More particularly. Why not the Money in the county Treasury and then let every town City and Ward in1 the City maintain its own poor. Then we could dispense with of now needed under the present system. I look upon our present county government something like our a pack of hungry office seekers always ready to Swallow every thing and let the stockholders creep along As they Best can. If the City of Racine and town of Bur Lington always mean to keep open their whiskey trap doers let them maintain them. I for one deny the right of any City or town to use the county As a swill pail to throw their useless garbage in odor of Green leaves to Orbacki. Kansas has been an extensive Field for Roorback for two or three years past but the Black republicans have availed them selves without of the last Mouth to multiply them.
