“Broad Street” Again..
We have space only to notice, very
briefly, two or three points in Broad
Street’s article. He still argues the
waterworks and sewerage question.
These are fairly under way, and will
be extended as last as the demand for
them and the finances of the city will
justify. These can be attended to
the future, but mow is the accepted
time for the park. The option will
soon expire. Waterworks and sewer
age improvements can go on gradually
as the needs demand, but the park
must be secured now, or not at all.
O, no, Mr. Broad Street, the council
are not going into the brokerage busi
ness; but the council will, like
prudent business men, put the sinking
fund where it wiil be absolutely safe,
and where it will draw the best interest
obtainable. This is a very safe pro-
ceedure, and it is just what the people
expect the council to do. It mat
ters little whether this sinking fund is
invested in bonds, loaned to batiks or
private individuals, on real estate' or
other gilt edge securities. The point
will be to make it secure beyond dis
putc.and to secure the highest possible
rate of interest. The town will cer
tainly get as much or more than she
pays—five per cent. We do not sup
pose that the banks arfr ‘-hankering'’
after the loan. If they will pay the
town as much as the town can get
from others, it is none of the council’s
business what the banks do with the
money. They can allow it to remain
in their vaults, or loan it at whatever
rate of interest they can legally obtain.
In any event the sinking fund will not
be allowed to lay idle, but its annual
investment will be absolutely safe.
Broad Street says “stick to common
sense and let theories alone.” That
is exactly what the advocates ot the
park arc doing. They propose to buy
a piece oT^roficrty which is, confessed
ly, .worth twice the sum to be paid:
they propose to secure for this and
future generations a big pair of healthy
lungs for the city which is growing up
here; they propose to pay for it ill
easy installments in the years to come
dividing it so that it will not tall heav
ily on this or the next generation. If
this is not common sense,-and the very
best kind of common sense at that,
then we have no conception ol that
rather rare commodity.
Mr. A. B. Culberson Dead.
Mr. Augusta B. Culberson, ot At
lanta, died Friday last at Clarksville.
Mr. Culberson was a brilliant young
lawyer, and possessed thn rare gift,to
gether with his intellectual and social
qualities, of attaching himself to
friends wherever lie went. lie has
many friends here who will lie sadden
ed to hear of his death.
Messrs. Hargrave, Reynolds & Da
vis are doing work for Mr. Beutly, of

graves, Reynolds it Davis for years,
In addition to this they inform us they

receiving so many orders from abroad,
and arc sending out such perfect work
It will repay anyone to walk down to
their shops and examine the work be
ing turned out.
.Mayor Hopkins disposed of the fol
lowing cases yesterday morning:
Homer Miller was fined 8(5, including
costs, for disorderly conduct. David
Coleman was up for fast riding. Ifc
plead illness in his family caused
him to hasten home with medicine.
Mayor Hopkins suspended decision
until he could investigate the matter.
Lizzie Mitchell, an old offender, was
let ofl with 811 or thirty day. Rosa
James was up for quarreling and
given 8") or five days. Carrie Cole
man, charged with engaging in a row,
discharged for want of evidence.
A New Bill.
The attention, more especially of
our readers Bouth of the railroad, is
called to the provisions of a hill which
has been introduced in the legislature,
providing that the voters in that terri
tory may vote on the question of :i
fence law. “No fence,” in that por
tion of the county, would lift a heavy
load from planters. The law has
worked most satisfactorily wherever
tried, and wc believe the people ot
that section of the county will be
great gainers it a no fence law is
adopted. Beo the bill.
An Extra Train Loaded with Cotton.

12 ears loaded with cotton,inchurgc of

Another Communication from
Mr. Editor : The material pros
perity of a town depends mainly upon
1st. An ample supply of good water,
furnished at a reasonable cost.
2nd. Good lights.at a figure in the
reach of the poor as well as the rich.
3rd, And chieflv, A perfect and
complete system of sewerage.
The system of city government,
which brings about these results, is
worthy of all commendation. But
that system which fails in either of
these respects is faulty.
I am not criticising our city govern
ment. In the main, they scern to have
done well. I don’t know that any
improvement could be made in that
But I hope they will not take it un
kindly, if I suggest to them, as well as
the people of the town, that the state
levies a tax upon the citizen lor state
purposes; the county levies a tax for
county purposes, and the city for city-
purposes. And when you add to these
three legitimate, because necessary
taxes, an ornamental tax of several
hundred dollars a year you will fatigue
the patience and forbearance ol a

people’s money,'but it is not an easy

I commend to the consideration of
the Yankee Paradise friends the little

appreciated as economy, and where
there is no prudence, can there be any
It is said there is nothing new under
the sun, but that docs not prove that
some old tiling may not be newly ‘dis-
covcied, such as that the mayor and
council of a town may go into the
brokerage business, and raise money
by taxation from its people, and lend
it to the banks at five per cent, inter
est, so that the banks may lend it back
to the people at twelve or fifteen per
Is that what you mean when you
say in your last issue, that some Texas
professor has come to the front with a
theory that will revolutionize the world
by means of electricity? If so, let us
all go into the banking business, and
hasten the coming of the revolution.
Our electric lights arc beautiful now
to look upon, but when we all get rich
and light up our streets and Yankee
Paradise, especially, with a greatly
increased candle power, how happy
wc will all be.
AVe may be bottled up by the rail
roads; Boston, Cairo, Ochlockonee
and Metcalfe may have all the trade,
but wc can complacently told our arms
and say to allcomers and goers: “Noth
ing can hurt us; ’ wc are “revolution
ized” by the newly discovered theory,
inaugurated by our city council,backed
up by a two-thirds vote of the people.
If such a proceeding will shew that
the city council, or the people who are
behind it, can convert common sense
into absurdity, or make that a blessing,
which would otherwise be an absurdity,
the friends of the park would have
great advantage in this discussion.
But until that happens the people of
Thomasville had better stick to com
mon sense and let theories alone.
If llicro is a superabundant amount
ot money in our midst, let sucli as
have it invest it in some industrial
enterprise that will benefit the people
and the town.
Or, if they prefer to do so, let them
erect a monument to their memory by
buying Yankee Paradise and making
the town a present of it. By this
means they can show that “a thing of
beauty is a joy forever.”
There is one reason the most pow
erful ot all against the purchase of
A’ankee Paradise by the council,which
I forbear for prudential reasons.
You know, Mr. Editor, what it is,
and can explain to all honest inquirers
alter the truth. 1
Your observation, experience and
travel will readily suggest it to you.
