Some question s for the administration to answer. Editor in the express of this morning some one afraid of his name Sigas anti slander and from the infer ence to be drawn from his epistle every Man that is not in favor of Tho present incumbent for a fourth term is a slanderer. By Way of digression i will say right ii re i was born under a monarchical government but today i am an american citizen by adoption. I came to the state Over 30 years ago with my boots on and Money in my pocket. I Ain opposed to any Man running for office More than two terms it smacks too much of egotism and begging. Remember these Are my own views. I belong to no party nor clique and am responsible for my views and Iny conduct. Now Antl slander Only uses two names or. Jfe comb and Walter Scott. As the last name belongs to to i will answer for myself Only. That sugar coated epistle would naturally make people believe that 1 have misrepresented and slandered Bryan Callaghan. In All my acts and my writings i make it a Point to Tell the truth and through the columns of your paper i have challenged them through the courts or through the press if i have misrepresented or slandered him in any Way. Now i will Only take the business Between me and the Olty that i have been directly interested in. If the following questions Are false Ihen i have slandered libyan Callaghan it True that the present contract for Block paving is not according to plans and specifications is it True that there was no written contract Between the present contractor and Tho City from last Spring until Jan uary 1891? is it True that the same contract ouch ers were signed by Walter Scott co., without my knowledge or consent is it True that Waller Scott received no compensation nor Sharoff profits though his name headed the vouchers is it True that i was not permitted to see Tho vouchers and contracts of Public property is it True that the present contractor receives 80 cents per linear foot for curb ing what Walter Scott co. Put in for go cents is it True that the bid of o Connor co. Was nearly ten thousand dollars loss than the present contract is it True that i Ryan was ignorant of Tho plot that failed to freeze me out of the contract is it True that Bryan was ignorant of Themo vein stopping the work in Decem ber to give More time to make blocks is it also True that there was a plot to compel me to put in extra machinery in 25 Days in order to swamp me Scott. To Cir terrible Teeth tear Ali orig Hlll toddling took rate taker. Willie Thorn Hill i Erht messenger boy for the Western Uulopa Telegraph office in this Olty waa neat with a Telegram last night about 9 o look to the residence of banker Dan Sulli Van of order of fourth and Avenue c. He did not know the banker kept Throe Large and vicious dogs and went in and rang the Bell. After he had rang the Bell the three dogs pounced upon the Little fellow and Tore him terribly Large Gash being made in the Back of his Nook and Ter Rible lao orations also being found on other parts of his body by those who finally cause to Bis assistance. Tho poor boy was taken to a drug store As soon As possible and or. Kingsley was called in. Shout stops. What the people Are saying. When a part Aorl Bier signs himself anti slanderer to a sure to be a slanderer by profession. It is a Nice pass when the Public acts of a City administration cannot be criticised without being termed slander in the official Organ. Because sir. Callaghan is a Clever fellow among his friends is 110 reason Why he should be continued As mayor to the detriment of the Public inter ests. Is it slander to Call attention to the fact that the assessment Rolls have been swelled Over six millions of Dol Lars at a critical time in our City s Prosperity is it slander to Call attention to a Large bonded debt made within the past three or four years and to Point out what we have received for it is it slander to Point out the Reck less management of Olty affairs is it slander to Point out the Polit ical bobs ism that attempts to crush All opposition Ana makes Uso of the Public revenues of the people to control the ballot Box. Is it slander to suggest to the peo ple that their Best Prosperity of the upon a change of City affairs in it slander to Call attention to the one Man government that id attempt ing to Rule our fair Olty without feel ing amenable to the people by whose votes and whose Money the City is sustained if this is slander make the most of it.

What our German Are fice baking powder used in millions of years the Standard. Translation from editorial Texas stasis from Vul Rlou Nuar tors we hear Tho question asked what have you to Eig inst the administration that you oppose it to which to must always Alvo the stereotyped answer to have ibs Olutola nothing against the admin is Rixton itself it seems incomprehensible to Many persons that to May sharply criticize improper conduct in Public affairs my yet Navo no personal a Sliko towards Hose criticized. Without assuming to seek to act As tar blahs Ami control said admin Tetra Loti to nevertheless claim the privilege if asking some one of which is Why docs the City and minestra Lon keep itself Lloa closed Oyster in mat ers of purely Public interest especially Vith relation to pecuniary matters next the people would Liko to know what has become of the census which was Aken at the expense of the City ills asserted by competent authority hat the taking of the said census Wason irely without authority of Law and that he sum of which Tho taking of Aid census is said to have Syas sex Lender illegally and has never yet been auctioned by Tho City Council. Would it lot have been More proper for the administration to have Given the citizens information regarding this matter before he coming election Why is it that after repeated requests answers to these questions have not been Ives us the next question to allowed ourselves o ask is has Leeomo of Tho Orth of City Bonds issued some months go As Tho report goes these Bonds have Jeen already sold. Would it not have Jean in better Tasto for the adm Nistra Ion to have informed the Public Oili Cial y at what prices these Bonds have been old if sold it is always concerning the Public loony of the citizens that we speak and hero Foro we should judge that it 1s thing but fair and just that to citizens should know what Las become of those City Bonds for Tho issuance of which they voted in conf ence. Lias Tho Money for those Bonds been received by Tho City treasurer or have he Bonds not been sold yet on so Largo a sum As Tho monthly interest amounts to a consider blk sum itself and therefore it would be Esir Ablo to know whether Tho ready Ash therefor is lying Idle in the Bank or it is at interest or not whether or not those Bonds have yet Leon really sold and hence whether r not Tho interest duo therefore from to time of issuance up to Day of Sale has icon deducted and placed to the credit of to City or not these Are certainly modest and justifiable questions and unlit not to give to any fair administration and which should be Cisily and quickly answered to Tho full at faction of the Public propounding hem. It May also not to out of place to inquire Oll Toly whether High or Low truss i ridges have been contracted for in Tho City As to have Jeen informed by members of Tho City Council that Tho contracts wore for Low Russ Bridges and yet the St. Mary s treat Bridge appears to to a High truss Ridge. We Are further informed that Low truss Bridges Are from to xxx higher in Price than High truss i ridges Are. To contracts so far As to Laver cedi Able to find out have been let or Low truss Bridges and How it is now hat some of said Bridges have been erected As High Bridges and yet members of the City Council know nothing about it and what is Golma to become of Tho difference Between the Cost of High truss and Low truss Bridges Fany can we be blamed if to ask these per Zinent questions for information in the interest of our citizens especially when Tho same has become common Street gos sip the anxiety of our citizens has been further aroused by the fact Hattie Street paving has been suddenly stopped and As the report goes because no contract has been signed nor Bond Given by Tho contractor and that for Tho last Street paving no Competition was called for by said administration and All such work seems to have quietly drifted into a monopoly. We feel satisfied that the administration ought to be Able to give a satisfactory explanation of All this if they desire so to do and can the Public be blamed i they do demand an explanation another assertion has been made to us Viz that no regular Book keeping for the receipts and expend Turos 01 the City Are kept As is customary with every other Well regulated business and which a business of such immense proportions As Tho City of san Antonio has. Must need on account of having to Deal with thousands of persons. We Don t pretend to be experts in Thi. Matter however As this assertion a been made on Al sides with thesta Tomen that Tho proof therefor can be furnished to Osk it and it Wil certainly be to the advantage of the administration if they would Irive satisfactory information con Corning these matters to our citizens. To have asked the above questions to cause they Are propounded to us Dally and answers requested and considering the importance thereof to can not understand How it is that they do not Mee with Tho prompt and proper attention demanded by their importance thereby giving room and occasion for perhaps unjustified pm toils n. People now have the Opportunity to answer those questions att polls and it behoves them to do so. Hard times Lelow. Hon. A. J.
