To the Editor of the Enterprise — Dear j
Hitt I ntn pleased lo see the handsome
manner in which you have opened your
columns to the discussion of municipal
affairs, and now avail myself of the privi
lege hy presenting a few more ideas lor
the consideration of your readers. Hcforc
doing so, however, it would perhaps be
well to disabuse your own mind of the
idea which, in common with Mr. Huff you
seem to entertain, that all who cannot en
dorse the action of Ihe City Government
in ail its phases must necessarily be inimi
cal to him personally ; he enemies in fact,
of the kind without whom, he says lie
cannot live. Now I do not occupy any
| such position, for 1 have always been one
! of his personal admirers, though 1 have
j never been able to approve of all his offi
cial course and have not hesitated to
speak to his face my full opinion. 1 may
ns well stale also that I am no candidate
or aspirant foi office and have no “defeated j
ambition'’ to uiouni over, other than that j
common to most of us, the honorable sin l
bitlou of independence to which we im
agined ourselves entitled
Well let us entiit ly Ignore ihe person
ality of Mr Huff, mid home calmly to the
considerations ot lilt* causes that lor llie
last eight yeuis have added seventy seven
thousand dollars annually to the city's oh
ligations and see it some letnetly Call nut Ije
discovered, that can wi h certainly, put a
check upon the head long career that
every one must set- is hurrying u. to de
slruetiou by precipitating the citizens into a
vortex of debt. In Ibis connection I hope
you will excuse me for nientionlug once
more the "one-man power," a phrase in
troduced 1 believe with happy effect hy
His Honor the Mayor, when he wished lo
convey Ihe idea that Ilia advice of even
eight Aldermen wu too much interference
with a Mayor's prerogatives which ought to
ho somewhat after tho kindly sort, and
who should be surrounded with but two
committees to record his edicts When
men in office undertake to do what they
! havc'no legal authority fordoing, they as
sume a power superior to the law, and act
up their individual judgment against the
' written statute, and so far as they do so
j and uvt upon it they exert in their iudi-
I vidua] capacity, the one man-power to
' which kind the many evils that afflict our
city to day are mainly attributable.
( )f course due allowance should he made
for the extra expenses incident to the an
omalous position iu which we have been
placed since the war. but that was no ex
cuse, fur instance, for Mr, Collins’ admin-
I i-lration adding fifty thousand to the Au
gusta Railroad subscription or to Mr.
Obcars’ for giving over the treasury of the
city to tho Mercer University not for Mr.
Huff's using the corporation funds in fix
ing for and runing a fair, the doing of
which has (listened a bonded debt upon
her of two hundred thousand dollars in
Now ii those had been ligilimnteobjects
that any stretch of the imagination could
have deemed consonant with Ihe objects
for which the corporation was created we
might have borne the burdens imposed
without a murmur, hut they were not,and
1 don’t believe if the questions were tested
that the properly of Ihe cillzens could ho
sold for laxos imposed for any such pur
He that however as it may, if Ihe laws
Imd been carried out without in fraction, it
would have been impossible to have been
so extravagant, for those administrations
would have been compelled to keep their
expenditures w ithin their means and when
Mr. Collins began to printKnd issue mo-
ney, he set an example that day which if
' followed will swamp any city corporation
in the world. Mr <’ left thousands of prom
ises to pay Mr O. improved upon it and left
Jsil.ooi) to be provided for, und Mr. II
not to he behind hand added $173,000 to
that, converted the public properly into
cash of over SIOO,OOO spent that, added a
third more to the taxes, and instead of
having his mirrency make interest he
pays iutcrest ror it to keep it out ! I and
will have to fund in gold bearing bonds
having perhaps twenty years to run ol un
expense of $30,000 more for interest and
possibly double that for discount, besides
liaviMg still $90,000 of the Mayor’s prom
ises to pay, limiting about or paying five
and u half per cent to some other corpora
tion for being put away !! And all this
because they persist iu making the city
do an act so contrary to law that would
consign any man of them for doitig the
same to the penitentiary.
Hence, 1 say It behooves the citizens to
i see to it that those plates be destroyed at
1 all hazards, aud there is no better time to
do it than right now. when it is announced
, that many more thousands will be needed
to run the nest Fair, and doable the sala
| ries of the city officers.
Speaking about Fairs, however, it
j strikes me that this is a bran uew business
i for city corporations to engage in. St.
Louis has been mentioned as also Louis
ville ns furnishing examples for our imita
tion in this department, but 1 venture the
assertion that neither of them, no, nor any
oilier corporation iu the United States or
the world, except Macbn. lias ever eui
barked as a corporation in the show busi
j ness, ano no other treasurer of a corpora
| lion holds Weston the walkists voucher
I for money received or any similar receipt,
and it is something in this wild age to be
i able to say that, for assuredly in Ibis par
ticQlar. Mayor Ilutr has shown himself
tiro "most progressive man iu the world"
tor here he treats the palm.
I don't pretend to say thorp have been
! any lies* Tweed's about Macon, but a
! printing press oilers too many temptations
■ to poor human nature, and parties who
; scout at honors iu connection with a
•Mayor's office in these degenerate days,
should not be too greatly exposed. For
this reason also I urge the destruction of
I those plates, for with corporations os with
men who sign their names too often, tticrc
can be no real economy wltcu money can
; be had on such easy terms Ido not
charge Mr. Huffs administration with
recklessness in the use' of the people's
money, though a heap of it Ims goue since
they came in power, besides what will
have to go after they retire, but 1 do
arraigu their judgment iu not paving the
floating debt with the cash assets of the
city instead of launching forth into still
In the one case the 110,000 realized fof
sales of public property, including sales or
street outfit which Mr. iluffomilted. would
have paid up within lI.tKJO of the floating
debt left by Mr Obcar that added to the
currency theu out ot StiOOO would never
have been fell and could have been paid
just as easily as the ikblHM) that is still out
while the proposed 200,000 gold Kinds
and their 30.000 interest would have been
raved to the city or never been heard of.
Hut theu we should not have had the fair
buildings that is true, . but 1 suppose wo j
could have survived that calamity much 1
better thau we shall the substitute com

squares would be of small magnitude.

the World, have been actively employed in Procuring Curiosities for his GREAT TRAVELING

been very largely supplemented for the present season by New Accessions and Consignments
brought by almost every Steamer from Foreign Ports which lias arrived in New York for Un
past eight months. As an illustration of the Indomitable Energy of the well known Proprietor

Oceans, together with the Red Sea and lloly Land, have all been levied upon, contributing to
