A tit and satisfaction guaranteed. 3-16-tf what the people Are saying. Sex president Cleveland is always harping upon the necessity of educating the masses As to political questions the people of our City need to Post themselves thoroughly upon municipal questions. Our debt is becoming larger every year our rate of taxation necessarily keeps Pace with our bonded debt. Our financial management needs a Complete Reform. Our business streets and leading thoroughfares Are now in Possession of Street railway corporation private Gas and water works monopolize the Supply of these two prime necessities overhead is a mass of electric wires huge ungainly poles obstruct our sidewalks. Practically we own nothing but the privilege of getting about As Best we May. A a a our property is at the mercy of the tax assessor and tax gatherer it is All mortgaged to pay for so called Public improvements. A As a Community we Are Drifting farther and farther away from that supreme control of our Public affairs so necessary to the Comfort and Prosperity of a civilized City. Increasing population Only adds to the Public Burden and increases the wealth and arrogance of private corporation. The taxpayer should be Given the most economical and Best service for his Money. We must have sewerage and the City should own and control the water Supply it should own and control at least the Public lighting of the streets. # a when town is a a booming a Cash plenty labor in demand real estate going off like hot cakes to hungry customers the tax gatherer is regarded with indifference extravagance in oily management excused and of Loal recklessness overlooked. But when we come Down to a legitimate basis the Case is different. # # a halt must be called by the people t will take at least two years of a new administration to put the finances of our City upon a proper basis. It May be two years of rigid Economy and retrenchment. But we had better have a halt and preserve our City a credit. Not go on and reach the amenable condition announced through the the graphic news of the prosperous City of Dallas. A a a Stop the borrowing of Money on notes at 8 per cent interest or if the Bank that has been so a Coom mod a tag As to lend Money on such doubtful Security should refuse to do so any longer then san Antonio would get face to face with the same crisis that confronts Dallas. Dallas has had a progressive City government and has much to show for the Money spent but issuing notes to pay debts and raise Money just As Vir. Callaghan has been Aud is doing Aas brought Dallas to a financial crisis so far As its City government is concerned. A our City Council has authorized the borrowing on notes bearing 8 per cent interest�?$30,000 per month to keep up the bread and butter Bra Gade of course this kind of Flancer ing is not very sate or Brilliant but the people of Hail Antonio Are not so particular As the Dall Sites. Compared to the actual condition of our City finances the financial troubles of Dallas seem trifling the Dallas City treasurer has Only allowed himself to be Over drawn $9,000 there Are out $30,000 or $40,000 floating vouchers Aud there is no Money in the Treasury to pay with such is the statement Why our absent mayor would laugh at Cauca trifles. # the a a test of the new Are alarm system As it is reported in the daily papers is a farce. Alarms were turned on from a a five of the boxes and the paid department was turned out to see what kind of time they could make. This is no test at All. The system May work perfectly but the a a test Given it by Alderman Lockwood is too thin.

Job Berry favouritism or trickery in any shape connected with such a Tuulio institution will arouse the just indignation of the people. From our regular correspondent Washington june 1,1891. The president was so interested preventing Secretary Blaine from unnecessarily worrying himself Over the business of the state department that he sent representative Hitt 01 Illinois a lobe personal Friend of both himself and or Blaine to Tell or. Blaine that there was nothing Here which required his personal attention and to persuade him to take a Long rest before again resuming his arduous duties and he is much pleased at the Success which or. Hitt met with and also with the Good news he brought of or. Blaines condition. Or. Hitt told the president that or. Blaine Only needed arest to be All right and he Bas promised to take that. Secretaries Tracy and Proctor and postmaster general Wanamaker accompanied the president to Philadel j phia memorial Day. The party returned saturday morning. Secretary Nobles is expected to return to Washington this week. The Rumor dispensers now have it that he is to succeed Robert Lincoln As minister to England Aud that or. Lincoln is to have the place he occupied in presidents Garfield and Arthurs cabinets Secretary of War in place of Secretary Proctor who is to aute id senator Edmunds All of which is interesting and of course possible but the most diligent inquiry among those who ought to know something about such important changes failed to authenticate the rumours and it is known that when Secretary Noble left Here a Short time ago he had no idea of retiring from the Cabinet before the 4th Day of March 1893. There Are a lot of mad democrats in the town. A scheme which has tor some time been whispered among the faithful of that party has been exposed Aud its friends fear Defeated by a sensational publication. The article in question set Forth the fact that the National association of democratic clubs the executive committee of which was at the time in session in new York is engaged in laying the wires for the nomination next year of senator Gorman. It is Well known Here that such a movement managed by some of the shrewdest men in the democratic party has been quietly going on since Early last Winter and that its managers did not wish it to get out because they were not fully prepared to antagonize the Hill Aud Cleveland people. The original programme As outlined by a prominent Democrat who was very much disgusted at the publication named was to allow the Cleveland and Hill men to carry their fight to such an extent As to make the nomination of either impossible and then to up Rug the name of Gorman backed by the machinery of the democratic clubs on the party As that of a Man whose nomination would be acceptable to All wings of the party. Whether this exposure will result in making or killing the Gorman Boom remains to be s9en but it will in either event make the other candidates look with suspicion upon the association of democratic clubs. No More elaborate Aud general Observance of the ceremonies of memorial Day was Ever held Bere than those of this year. After More than week of Rainy disagreeable weather the 30th was ushered with glorious Sunshine and not a soldiers grave was left undecorated and Arlington cemetery never looked More Beautiful. I it seems to be the general opinion Here that England will eventually agree to Secretary Blaines propose Tiou for a closed season in Behring a sea this year but there Are a few who believe that it is already too late to Stop the killing of seals this season Aud some think that lord Salisbury in going to parliament for authority to agree to or. Blaines proposition is Only intentionally killing time so As to make it too late to interfere with the Canadian vessels which Are already illegally taking seals. All admit that it will be extremely difficult even if both countries earnestly try to prevent illegal sealing after wait ing until so late in the season. It is sell Wolfi Olally announced that Hon. Charles e. Mitchell commis Stoner of patents has tendered his resignation preferring to return to the practice of his profession. There is a general feeling of regret As his administration of the office has been an excellent one. Notices calling in the 4 12 per cent Bonds which mature in september Are being mailed to the holders of those Bonds by the Treasury department. These notices Are sent out in compliance with Law but it has not vet been fully decided whether the holders of these Bonds will be Given the option of continuing them at a reduced rate of interest. Attorney general Miller said today that he expected the appointments of the judges of the new land court to be made this week. O. K.
