‘‘Section XXII. Be it fur
ther enacted, that the treasur
er of the town at the close of
each quarter of fiscal year
shall make a full tabular state
ment of the assets and resour
ces of the town, and at the
end of each fiscal year shall
make an itemized estimate for
the probable and necessary ex
penses for the ensuing year,
which statement and estimate
Shall be published and verified
by the finance committee; no
greater amount of revenue
Shall be raised the ensuing
year that the amount of said
estimate together with salaries
of officers, unless in case of
emergency, to be judged of
by the council.”
Now, in the name of all fairness,
why ha? this section of the Charter
been ignored? It can’t be said they
are ignorant of its contents. The
quarterly publications “of the assets
and resources of the town” have been
Whv haß not the “Itemized esti
mate for the probale and necessary
expenses for the ensuing year,” been
published? This “estimate” should
have been made last year and tuisyear
and no greater amount should have
been, nor should be for this, raised
by taxation, unless in a case of au
It is the Charter right if every citi
zen to know what the probable ex
pense of the city government will be,
and for what purpose the revenue of
the city Is to be raised. The Mayor
and Councils are the SERVANTS of
the citizenship of Jackson and the
servants should, at ail times, by pub
lication, when the Charter requires it
be given information as to what
amouht of revenue is neoied and for
what purpose. The word ‘‘SHALL”
In this section does not mean “may."
We do not mean to be Knocking
our city officials, but wo moan to
demonstrate that they are e'ther ig
norant of the organic law of the city
or else they are simply ignoring the
Charter. If they are Ignorant of the
law they certainly should be opt n
to learning it’ but if it is a case of
dis-regard for the law the people
should know it.
Gentlemen, of the city government
are you ignorant of thin section of the
Charterer do you mean to treit it as
a nulity? We await your answer.
The financial condition of the Ooun
tv has no doubt Droved an eye opener
to the taxpayers, and no doubt they
are all wondering how it all came a
bout. There is not the shadow of a
doubt that the old commissioners
overstepped their delegated powers
TVhen they borrowed more money
than the t axes for the year would pay.
Again there ia not a shadow of a
doubt that the expenditure of so
large a sum wns wholly unnecessary.
But it remains true that those who
loaned the commissioners money did
ao without the knowledge that the
commissioners were going beyond the
line laid down by the law as the limit
of prudence and legality ; and as the
people will get the benefit of at least
a part of these sxpenditures, it fol
lows that, the good people ef Butts
Court) n- expect the new Commies
ionert to .a that every duller of the
County’s debts are paid, and that as
promptly a* a legal way can be
Repudiation is not an honorable
method, neither will it prove wise in
Some Pointed Remarks
On the Cotton Oil Question.
Mr. Editor: I read with much
pleasure the article of Mr. Evan
Smith on tho cotton oil question. I
think that he struck the k*v note
when he calls on the farmers to build
• heir own oil mill*. The reason why
cotton seed has not advanced in price,
as given by the oil mill people, is that
he s sed are so badly damaged that
the price obtained for the oil will not
authorize any advance. Now that
seems at a first glauce, to he the most
simple and reasonable argument pos
ilne Hut there is another phase <>f
i lie question Now everybody will
know that the seed being damaged so
that the oil is of a poor quality, it
naturally follows that the Meal and
Hulls are damaged also. But that
fact does not hinder the Oil 00. from
advancing Mem from $20.00 t 0520.00
per ton. Neit ier does it stand i the
way of an advance from $0 00 to $9.00
Now these conditions will stare the
farmers in the face just as long as
they sell their seed to the Oil Mill
Why can the farmers not build their
oil mills and have their own Meal
and Hulls, and if they cannot as has
been said, get cars in which to ship
the oil, or cannot find a market for it
then let them go a little farther ar.d
make it into lard compound, and the
poorer grade into soap. Then the
OOtton oil trust will be a factor
looked upon with indifference by the
farmers; they will utilize their own
product, encourage a thriving industry
where the profits will return to their
I would be glad to see a meeting
called to discuss this very important
question, and in the meantime I
would like to hear some others express

Lorenzo Dow Feared Arrest.
Lorenzo Dow on one occasion
took the liberty while preaching,
the Boston Herald says, .to de
nounce a rich man in the commu
nity, recently deceased. The result
was an arrest, a trial for slander
and an imprisonment in the county
After Dow got out of limbo he
announced that ho should preach
at a given time a sermon about “an
other ricli man.” The populace was
greatly excited, and a crowded
house greeted his appearance.
With great solemnity he opened
the Bible and read, “And there was
a rich man who died and went to”—
Then, stopping short and seeming
to he suddenly impressed, lie contin
ued, “Brethren, I shall not mention
the place this rich man went to for
fear he has some relations in this
congregation who will sue me for
defamation of character.”
The effect was irresistible, and
he made the impression permanent
by taking another text.
Nature the Artisan.
Asa weaver nature produces fine
work. Certain tree barks and leaves
furnish excellent cloth—as, for in
stance, the famous tapa cloth used
in the south sea islands. Nature is
a glassmaker too. By discharging
her lightning into beds of quartz
sand she forms exquisite little pipes
of glass. She makes valuable ropes
of various kinds in the shape of
tropical vines and creepers, and she
is even a lacemaker, as witness the
| lace trees of the West Indies.
