The City Printer Discussion.
The city printer discussion was very
Interesting. As elated. It wa* suggest
ed by Mr pfc’nlsy that the official print- ;
tng be let to the lowest responsible j
hltldcr on a bond of $5,000 approved by ■
the finance committee. In the same J
prragrapb Mr. ! Phinisy had It that
other than official printing also be let !
Mr. Garrett made the point that the ■
proposition was Impracticable. His 1
jiolnt wss lhat Job printing could not j
be estimated in advance —the amount
of it. etc.—for an Intelligent bidding
end that newspapers only could do offi
cial printing and Job offices Job print
Mr. Phinlzy said his sole object was
to put out at contract such printing as
could be done by contract.
The Mayor—‘T wish to say that the
official printing is now done at a lower
price to the city than It is worth. If you
put out this position at contract you
might, on the same principle, put out
every office in the city at contract. The
official printing is new done for SI,OOO
per year. This includes all the official
printing of the city and the beard of
health. Including the registry list.”
In answer to a question by Mr. Rob
ertson, the mayor reiterated the work
done as official business.
Mr. Phiutzy—"Well, if it be found
that the city can get done for SSOO
work now done for SI,OOO, I say let us
get It dene.”

As far rs he could see there was on

Populist and as long aa he could re
member the Populists had been crying
for fair elections and honest ballot.
His opinions had undergone a change.
Several years ago he was a strong nd
vocate of the brother In black. “I now
see that the greatest majority of their
votes are for sale, as are also many
wjiite votes.” When he first appeared
nt the polls the people thought it was
a shame for a preacher to get into such
a mess. He pulled off his coat, and
now he was glad to see lhat Hie best
citizens are shoulder to shoulder with
him for pure elections. "Even The
