From Your Darling,
The above was found by one of
our citizens who requested us to ad
yertiso it and see if we could find the
the owner, who can haye it by calliag
at this ofioe immediatly.
Afceat Clcjr Ectaaar
The matter of economy in ciy affairs
baring been sprang recently, we wish
to here state, Tea Cmir believes
that as matter of fact, the city has
been running too excessively for sev
eral years. The idea of payinga
mayor $109 per year, and the coaneil
men $50 each aad so on. It's simply
preposterous. Chicago with the sec
ond largest, if not the largest city
eoaneilia the world, ioes not pay her
aldermen a sent, they do it for glory,
and why not in Red Cloud? The sal
ary of oity ofioials should be cut
down one half, that would be quite a
saving, at least of $150 and then
there is positively no use of a street
commissioner as the city marshal
could look after that business. There
would be another saving of $500
making a total of $650. There's
enough actual ezpease without any
superfluous extravagance. Then again
there are the electric lights. Till
Chief cannot see the necessity of
keeping the lights burning on moon
light nights, it's an absolute waste of
the raw material. At least $200 per
year could be saved there, if not a lit
tle more, with just the same results .
That would be a saviags of $850.
Thk Chikf does aot care who is elect
ed city eoaacilmen and mayor jast so
the work of economy goes on as it
should be. Tm Chief will always
be found. -fighting for good sqaare
economy, but will not countenance
any political ehicaaery for the pur
pose of alleged economy.
It has been said by some one that
The Chiif has built more railroads
oa paper than any one. To' this ac
cusatioa may it please your honor, we
plead guilty, msiag a legal phrase, if
we may be permitted to do so. And
yet. notwithstanding the fant, if our
people are aaxious tor tne prosperity
of this city, it behooves one and all
to be upon their metal, and make
some effort to get railroads, even
paper OBes, if nothing better can be
procured. The Chief has labored
sealemsly for enterprise in Red Cleud
the truth of whieh cannot be gainsaid
and in looking over the field, has no
reason to be ashamed of the result.
However, there are men in the city,
that arc wealthy .that should put forth
their every influence, that are setting
idly by aad letting other towns knock
the persimmons, while RedCloud con
tents herself by watching them pluck
the prizes. The Chief wanks to
have these landed capitalists, who are
more interested by 100 per eent than
any other citizen, to get a move on
themselves and do something that will
count in the matter of railroads. It
ought not to be expected that the
poorer classes should be continually
helping the rich get richer, while
they are apparently disinterested.
If our rich menfhad one half the
enterprise and ambitWB, that
the capitalists of some of our sis
ter towns have, we would have
had another railroad !ong ago. It
takes energy, grit, ambition, money

and any amount of hard work to build
a city, and in order to do so those
who are heavily interested in city
property, and farms adjacent should
take the lead. If this was done there
would not be many days intervening
before we had new railroads, manufac
tories, and a city growing and boom
ing right along. Shall we have it?
