M JACKSON RECORD. Official Organ of Butts County. ?. E. Andrew* Editor and Publisher Subscrit don, SI.OO a year. Entered at the postoffice at Jacks >n Ga.. ea second class mail matter. ? JACKSON. GA.. Feb. Ist ’OO7 CITY TREASURER IGNORES CHARTER ‘‘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 made, 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 emeregeucy. 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. Coirhty Finances. 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 found. Repudiation is not an honorable method, neither will it prove wise in the end. Some Pointed Remarks On the Cotton Oil Question. (Communicated) 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 for Hulls. Now these conditions will stare the farmers in the face just as long as they sell their seed to the Oil Mill trust. 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 own pockets. 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 their views. A Farmer. THE worthless millionaires of Am erica are equal to the royal Haps burgs furnishing scandals for the newspapers. THE most immoial degradation that was ever forced upon a great and chivalrous people is the Carolina Dis pensary It now looks like the Dis pensary will soon go, and when it goes Senator Tillman will go with it, a departure that millions of Americans long to see. 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 jail. 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. Legal Advertismenfs.
