COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tlrarsiay Horning, October 12*1871.
Tba Blatter Reviewed-An Impartial
Viw-The CltlBen'a Duty.
The development of Columbia is a
metter that oonoerns every good oitizen.
It may be laid down as an indisputable
proposition, that every unnecessary bur?
den laid upon tho tax-payers is a bur
and a serious bar.-to the development
of tho city. It may also be nfQrmed that
the cb unto ter and disposition of tho city
government have ao little bearing iipon
tho welfare of the city. When, there?
fore, it beoame a ourreut rumor upon
the streets that in the matter of the
contraots to build the new City Hull and
the new market, the city had been swin?
dled out of a large sum, and when fur?
ther it waa alleged that new city bonds,
biudiug the property of the citizeue, had
been secretly and illegally issued nnd
placed in the hands of Dr. Neugle-a
private party-for tho loon, on short
time, of $75,000, we felt it our duty, on
the part of the people, to call for nu in?
vestigation. We did call for informa?
tion. We called upon tho thou acting
Mayor-Alderman Wallace-but he, pre?
serving a disoreet silence, vouchsafed no
reply. Tho publie were, however, given
to understand that, upon the return of
Mayor Alexander and Alderman Wigg,
all would be made clear-the crooked
made straight and tho darkness turned
into day. In the meautime, tho Board
of Trade, as was proper, took the matter
np in behalf of the citizens, and under?
took an investigation. Beyond tho fact
that this committee were promised access
to the plans and specifications of the
new buildings proposed to be erected,
a?d have called upon Messrs. Bell, Fry
and Troy to assist them in estimating
the proper cost of the work awarded
respectively to Mr. Allen and Messrs.
Smith, and Simons, we are not aware
that this committee of investigation have
as yet effected anything. It is true
that Mr. Parkins, the architeot of the
new Oity Hall, has published a letter, in
which he has tried to explain away cer?
tain admissions made by himself; bat
we dismiss this letter, with, the simple
remark that it is too "thin"-entirely
unsatisfactory. It is trae, farther, that
Dr. Neagle has admitted his connection
with the secret action of the City Coun?
cil; but as the admission was made after
the exposure of the came, we do not per?
ceive that he can claim any credit for his
candor in the premises. It is not usual
for the public to award credit to men
for admissions made after discovery of
the fact. Thus, after all, prior to the
meetiug of the City Council, the gist of
the matter between the City Council and
the citizens had not been reached.
Well, the City Council met on Tuesday
evening, last. The question is, have the
issues before the public been mel? We an?
swer that they have not. And here wo
desire to say that, having taken this
matter np, we do not intend to let tho
questions raised go by default. We have
no private ends to subserve-no partisan
purposes to effect. But we propose to
see that the publie interests in the city
are upheld, and that unblushing fraud,
if it be found to exist, shall not go unex?
posed. There are several matters that
require explanation. In tho first place,
how is it. Mr. Mayor and Messrs. Alder?
men, abont the secret issae of those new
city bonds? You knew that it was seri?
ously doubted whether or not you had
the right to make that/issue. You must
know that the issuing of bonds, binding
as it does the property of the oitizen,
and adding to his burthens, is one of
most delicate and important powers con?
ferred upon a legislative or municipal
body. Aod yot, without giving tho tax?
payers of Columbia an opportunity to
express an opinion on this subject, so
vital as respects their interests, what do
you do? You proceed as if you knew
that what you were doing was wrong.
Privately, in secret oonolave, yon issue,
under very questionable authority, bonds
of the city to the amount of $250,000.
, And this, act of yours, committed on
Aa gust 31 last, is kept concealed from
the public for at least forty days, and
then it leakB ont, and is admitted by an
outsider, only after confession is ren?
dered nnneaessary. In the meantime,
the Council publishes ita official proceed?
ings, but deliberately and by order with?
holds so much of its action as relates to
tho issuance of new bondel Wo are
given the play of Hamlet, with Hamlet
omitted. And, so far as this matter is
concerned, it appears that the whole
Oounoil, from the Mayor down to the
humblest Alderman, aro responsible.
This ring was oomplete. It included the
whole body of the men solemnly charged
with the interests of a city rising with
hard strokes from its ashes I Let os in?
quire, now, as to the disposition of these
new bonds after they aro issued. It is
alleged that it was understood in Coun
oil that these bouda wero to bo pledged
to the Carolina Natiooal Bank, for the
loau of money to tho City Council, but
that the Chairman of the Committee of
Ways and Menus, Alderman Wigg, upon
his own responsibility, or ia connection
with certain members of Council, mada
the arrangement with Dr. Noagle, and
got a loan on short time, leaving it in
the power of the lender to sell these
bonds at any price to realize his loan,
after thu expiratiou'of u curtain limited
If this be true, what uow should
the Council have done in tho premises?
WUK it not a plain duty to urruigu Alder
mau Wigg for his gross assumption bf
power, itnd his alleged deception? Aud
yet observe what tho Cuuncil have done.
?Soo their turne procedure. Hero nguiu
we tako it that tho Council have signally
failed to fill tho measure of their (lily.
But there ore other matters tln.i require
explanation. . I
It is now alleged ' that there was but
one bid for the city market building
that of Aldermen Smith aud Simous.
It is also alleged that thero was but one
bid for tho new City Hall-that of Mr.
Allen. How do theso allegations com?
pare with tho record? Let UH to the
testimony. Wo take the following ex?
tract from the official proceedings of the
City Couucil, September ll, 1871:
"Alderman Wigg submitted the follow?
"COLUMBIA, S. C., September ll, 1871.
"To TUE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL:
The Speciul Committee on City Hall re?
spectfully report that, in obedienco to
resolution of Council, they daly adver?
tised for bids for City Hall; that lt. W.
Johnson, Esq., bid fur the contract, (ex?
cluding scating in theatre and gas fix
turee,) in the sum of $141,500; Clark
Waring, Esq., (for whole building,)
$140,000; and JameB M. Allen, Esq., in
the sum of $138,000, which,' hoing the
lowest bidder, the committee, have
awarded the contract to him. The com?
mittee recommend the adoption of fol?
lowing resolution: \
"Resolved, That the contract for build?
ing the City Hall be awarded to James
M. Allen, at his bid; and that the Special
Committee be authorized to enter the
necessary contracts in behalf of city.
"By order of committee.
"W. HUTSON WIGG, Chairman.
"Alder ruo - Minort moved the adoption
of the ropo. ' .nd resolution.
"Tho question being taken, it was
decided in the affirmative, unani?
Now, when this report came up, wi
would ask, were the members of th?
committee aware that, ns now alleged,
Allen's bid was the only one; and,
.secondly, were they or were they noi
aware that tho bid, even of Mr. Allen,
was a most exorbitant one? Hud Mr,
Parkins not been heard to say that tlx
Council, t? carry out his plans, woulc
have to expend only about $75,000',
Again, when this matter came np befon
Council, was there no Alderman then
to rise and ask whether or not they wen
assenting to a fraudulent bid? Doei
Council do business in thu way? Is i
?ot evideut that the committee on thi
City Hall, as well SB the whole Council
have acted ina most inefficient way, ti
say the least? The fact of the matter is
it is apparent that they were either weal
or disposed to sacrifice the city's inte
I rests, and thus to betray their officia
trusts. So much for the City Hall. Le
us look, now, to the new market. Fros
the official proceedings of Council, fo
September 12, 1871, wo make tho follow
"Alderman Cooper, from special com
! mitten, submitted the following:
"The Committee on New Market bei
leave to submit tho followiog report:
"We have received bids for buildiu
market from J. M. Allen, E-q , am
Messrs. Israel Smith and Wm. Simon?
J. M. Allen's bid being $20,Q00. am
Smith aud Sim3ns' bid being $18,GK.
there being no other bids, the committe
would recommend that tho contract b
given to Messrs. Smith and Simone
their bid being the loweflt. Yours, rt
"AUGUSTUS COOPER, Cha'n,
"S. B. THOMPSON,
"R. M. WALLACE."
We remark that the same criticism ar.
plies to thi B jon. It is alleged that ther
was but one genuine bid in this oas?
and yet if this bo so, what has tb
"Special Committee" to say? Again
did this committee know, or did the
not know, that the sam of $18,GIG wr
an extravagant sum for tho work to b
done? If they did not know it, the
onght to have known it. If they di
know it, then they deliberately allowe
tho city to be imposed upon. lu th
case, it is true that Alderman Wallat
made a feeble protest against buildiu
the market, as four-fifths of the ta:
payers had protested against it; yet r
point was mado us to whether the coi
tract sum wus a reasonable ono or na
Thus it seems that in making uppropri
Hons of the people's money and in iss
ing bonds, the City Council huvo a wt
of their own. IQ this connection, we
give an extract from the remarks made
by Alderman Wigg in opposition to the
protest submitted against building the
new city market. He said: .
"As to tho" ways and means, he would,
state that it is not the bug-bear some
people would make it appear, as the.
amouut of cash on deposit in bank to?
day, and the revenue from taxes (aud no
increnBed rate of tax) in January, will
build both the hull and market. To nse
a common expression, he would say tho
city is not broke. Ho respected the pe?
tition, but conld not vote to reconsider
his uctiou in the premises. He would
move that the petitiou bo referred to
Committee ou Market."
"Tho petition was eo referred."
It will be observed, now, that these
remarks wero made September 12. It was
A Uffust 2lsl that the bonds were issued.
Thus, when this Chairman of Ways and
Means way discussing thu question of
ways and means, he studiously ignores a
transaction which ho had already con?
summated with his friend Dr. Neagle.
This, wo suppose, muy be deemed sharp
practice. Nor does Alderman Wigg
alono keep this secret, but the whole
Counoil also preserved the same discreet
silonoe. But let us recur to the action
of the City Council. They meet to
"mako things right," and tho result is,
after the whole subject of the issue of
tho now bonds has been discussed, that a
special committee is appointed to arrunge
for the deposit of tho city bonds (3250,
000) with tho Carolina National Bank,
and that the time for the payment of tho
noto is extended. So far us this deposit
and the extension of the loan are con?
cerned, very well. But we ask, is this to
b? tho extent of Council's uctiou? If
so, O, most lame und impotent conclu?
sion! What about tho exorbitant rates
which it is alleged Mr. Allen is to re?
ceive, aud also Messrs. Smith and Si?
mons? What about those coutracts?
We have not reached by far tho lu6t
analysis of this matter, aud where the
City Council stops, at that point we hopo
the citizens will tuke tho matter up.
Citizens of Columbia, look to your inte?
rests. Hold tho servants of the public
to a strict accouut. Follow the example
of New York. If there are rings, break
them up. Meet the public foes on the
threshold. Popular upathy is tho publia
plunderer's opportunity. It is time for
the people themselves to look after their
imperilled interests. Qod savo the
country, the State or thu city, when the
oitizen stands idly by and allows the
publio treasury to be invaded aud plun?
dered. At least try the Courts of the
land and seo if tho publio interests are
to get protection there. It is said that
Metellus stood with drawn sword nt the
door of the Roman Treasury. Lot us
hopo that Heaven, iu its providence,
may find some Metellus thus to help us,
for unless some such protector docs
arise in this country, we fear that public
plundering will not soon cease to bo tho
order of the day.

Tho news comes to us from this quar?

State of Texas. All tho Democratic
candidates for Congress are reported

over a fair portion of the land.
Up to this time (Tuesday) ten mon
have been arrested as Ku Klux and
lodged in the jail at this piece, two of
whom have been released. Only five of
this number are now in jail. The state?
ment of the PHONEX, upon information
received from thu Marshal, "that num?
bers of the 'mystic clan' are daily sur?
rendering themselves," is not true ac?
cording to the information wu have. All
who aro in jail were arrested. The para?

that our jail is full ol prisoners who sur?
rendered themselves, which is not true.

MALICIOUS BURNING.-For the first
time in the annals of tho history of Mor?
ry, it is made our unpleasant duty to ro
oord the incendiary burning of barns in
this Connty. On Monday morning, the
3d instant, at abont 4 o'clock A. M., Col.
Samuel Smart and his family were
aroused from their bedB by the roar and
shining light of the fire then devouring
a barn, not more than thirty yards from
his dwelling, in which was stored near
100 bushels of rice, his year's crop of
fodder and rice straw. Adjacent to this
barn was one with horse and cattle stalls
attached. With much difficulty the
horse was rescued from the flames. Both
barns were consumed. Luckily tho corn
crop was not harvested. Col. Smart es?
timates his loss at $600 to $800. This
burning was not the work of a negro,
and up to the timo of this diabolical,
fiendish, hellish outrage, it was not sup?
posed that Col.. Smart had un enemy iu

BROKE JAIL.-On Saturday night laet,
about 8 o'clock, Thomas H, Doyle and
Henry Earline, United States soldiers,
and James Bussell, who was undergoing
sentence for illicit distilling, made their
escape from the jail of this County.
Their escape was effected with a small
steel bay, with which they had been clan?
destinely furnished, and with which they
'broke tho lock to a trap-door, through
which they gained access to the roof of
the jail and out through. This beiug
done, they made a ropo of blankets and
reached tho ground in safety. Sheriff
Dewberry, when he discovered tho pri?
soners had mudo their exit, caused pur?
suit to bo made. Thomas H. Doyle was
overtukeu about fifteen milos from town
and brought back to juil. Tho other
two have not been hoard from. Wo

North to purchase machinery. As soon
as our people have an opportunity of
seeing the workings of a few factories,
we shall have a great inorease in this in?
dustry. We regard these enterprises as
of special importance to farmers; for
they have scarcely any desirable forms
of investment. If the farmers of Mm
County should bo induced to believe
that cotton manufacture, here at our
