independent of parties an ! persons in all
public interests, while we reserve to our
selves the light to lead in that diicction
most consonant with utw convictions of
the people's prosperity and tlie eternal
We arc not at all afraid of weakening
the present city government by proper

that the closest and most thorough sifting

result in the triumphant vindication of our

Mr. Editor:— The financial statement >
of Mr. It 15 Barfield presents much food
for serious reflection to the tax payers of
Macon, and should he studied carefully by
the people, embracing as it does a state- ■
ment of the nctunl yearly accretion of the
city debt from the end of the Collins' to
and during the Obcar, and IlufT adminis
trations. When the former went into
power the debt of the city ha I been kip’
stiictly within the legal limit of two hun
dred ami lifiy thousand dollars. By Mr
ltiiifnM s statement in December, HGte
when Mr. Collins left ollbe it had reached
i 1 11, Jl7 G7e. Four years afterwards when
Mr. Obcar left oflkeit hud reuebed $774,-
1H11.50 and on the .Tltti December, next
it will hr sHti4,oo!>.s(J, with every tangible
as-et of the city sold or otherwise dispos
ed of, and the taxes inereased three fold I!!
The yearly increase of debt being on an
average nearly $77,(100 dollars, all of
which together wittt tbe increase of taxes
liaH been absorbed in Hie current expense,
except 550,011(1 given to the Augusta Kail
road, in addition to the original subscrip
tion of 550.000, and so far a* the waiter
knows without nuthmity of law. together
w ith the amount spent on the Park, w hich
j however can hardly he called an asset of
j ihe city, an I the donation to the Mercer
: University the benefits of which are still
1 In the clouds. The citizens of Macon
who will look on this picture without
prejudice may here see that the one man
power a modified form.from that advocated
by the present Mayor, has cost the city
over 5(iM,000 dollars in eight years, be
sides the tremendous amounts extorted
from the people’s pocket* in double and
tripple taxes, liseenses &c., aud during the
same period, and at the same time they
enn look nt the beggarly account of emp
ty boxes that the results presents.
When Legislature throws aside the re
slauints of constitutional law and officers
of corporation ignore the charters that de
fine their powers, and Mayors take the law
into their own hands, or at their discretion
become a law unto themselves, snd in
deliancc of all law spend or give away the
public treasures in consideration pel Imps
of a little cheap eclat or even from the best
of motives there is an end of all responsi
hie government, the one man pow er nut
prerogative is assumed |so far as each in
dividual can. two heads no longer consid
ered better Ilian one, and time honored
consultations of "commilteess" acting un
der t lie restraints of law, and sworn duty,
are derided and cast to the winds 1 ! With
law for a guide if honest, the way-faring
man though a fool will not err, but with
only poor discretion guided by the cap
rice of the moment to direct the step.they
would lie "green" indeed who would trust
it, and the community who entrusts its in
tercets to that kind of direction or lets it so
continue when discovered or aunonced has
only itself to blume for the results, how
ever damaging they may be
As regards Macov, up to and during the
war, her Mayors und Couucils never
dreamed of exceeding their legal powers,
and (he records of their proceedings will
prove that though they did it in the regu
lar business way, each acting in his own
particular sphere, with committees not
ignored, they yet succeeded with much
smaller mentis in carrying on the city
government with better results than lias
I yet been attained by any administration
that since the war has substituted for law,
1 its own discretion aud depended on en
abling nets, that dated not see the liglit
till passed to make their actions valid.
This much, by way of comparison, is
proper to he said in favor of those much
abused administrations, hut it is also right
at the sumo time, to assert that in those
days the people by a healthy public opin
ion, gave proper support and direction to
tlie w hole, so tliut tlie Mayor or the Coun
cils that sitettld have undertaken to spend
or give away the public treasure at the
into of hundreds of thousands without
authority of law or in contravention of it.

get out of debt on such a programme it
must be said is not very cied.table to the
••business men ” of Macou, and if they do
much of their own busim ** after the same
style God help them.
Hut is there uo remedy? Are vve
doomed to continue m the dowuward
road at a $77.1100 rate, more or less,
year by year, at the mere discretion
of any body* 1- there no limit? Are

wiili mere discretion or the one man i

Do this aud I care uot who you put in

benches, however "green " they may be,
il only upright and patriotic, they will
beat your over-smart people that can only
be influenced by "pay ’’ all to prices and
