BBuogBjuwe on ineir own account, just
Tb 'Sun' says, neithor that paper nor
in people will condemn Payson & Co.
until they need condemnation. So far as
this denial applies to the 'Sun' it is untrue.
That paper bas been condemning Payson
St Co., as well as tbo railroad company,
for a week, ignorantly. It has hinted
shortcomings without iuformation, It has
condemned tb contract made be
tween Howland and associates
and the company without having read (
that contract without knowing whether
there was on, two or three contracts. It
has done this either because It was
pall to do to or bocauie men who had
an object to accomplish has imposed upon
It. What does the 'Sun' mean 7 Does It
mean to aay the contract it has not read ii
ot a good contract? If so how does it
knowT And wherein is the contract do
fact! vet Does tb 'Sun' moan to say
that Payson St Co. aro dishonest?
If to; In what respect t Does
the "Sun" mean to say that Alexandor
county and Cairo have given bonds to the
Cairo St St. Louis Railroad Company that
the oompany was not entitled to rocoivo7
Does the "Sun" Intend
to say that tb
county has lost anything by handing
over to the company $39,000 of bonds as
payment for the road bed which bas bon

The "Sun" must be more definite.
Hints will no longer do. What does it
know and what does it suspect? Our
neighbor must make specific charges. He
must inform himielf. It will not do to
rely upon Mr. Wilson's suggestions. Tbo
ditor ought to know something about tbo
subject which he is pretending to discuss,
and he has acknowledged bis profound
ABOUT THAT ROAD AGAIN.
Th 'Sun' is still harping on the rail
Will our neighbor pleate to be Jmt?

has always said: "Not satisfactory. Try

We did not. Mr. Wilton taldt "The

laid : "Not so ; Mr. Canda mado tho state
ment and swore to It bofore bo or anybody
knew thero would be a railroad iituo at
tbo election." Was not that n proper re
sponse, bolng a true one, to Mr. Wilton's
Tho 'Sun' further says:
Dul this is not all. He says above that
Canda has sworn to the statement, and In
his renlv to Mr. Wilson, he say that Mr.
Candu "has never been sujpocled ot a dis
honorable act," hut ho ndtulla above that
this "docs not relieve tho company Irom

President or Vice-President or any of t's
Directors know somethluc b ilutt mat

it, they manikif things very loosely, and
have la'Jid In the dlHcbargo of a duty they
owe to the people. If they do know, wheru
is tile need ot tho proposed investigation)'
Further In what way will the InvcsllKatlon
help the people? Tho VIcc-l'rcsldeiu says
that tho contractors arc lnnohcnt. The

Is tho man of tho "Sun" a dolt 7 Can't

of Cauda was made to tho directors last

tho road, is satisfied that tbo statement is
correct. lie has, from timo to time, as
the work progressed, Investigated the
affairs ot tbo company. Ho has been
careful that tho contractors should Qll the
contract. But If the statement of Canda
should bo false, how can tho pooplo sut
tain any injury from that fact at this
'-stage- of tho game ?" Tho company owes
the contractors. The contract was: That
the contractors should build the road and
receivo tborofore the fir-t mortgago bonds,
the county nnd town bonds subscribed to
tho company's capital stock, and $5,0J0,
600 stock, lets an amount of stock equal to
tbo amount of county and town bonds to
bo paid to them. Very well : Tho first
mortgage bonds wero sold and tho money
put into the road ; stock was also psld to
the contractors, ami they rooeived Cairo
nnd Alnzandorand Monroe county bonds;
but after all this was paid to them the com
pany still owed tburn about $189,000 ot
county; bonds, and will owo them when
thy havo complotcd tho road, $307,000
moro county and city bonds. The con
tractors havo until next January to com
p'ete tho road, and if tboy fall then h set

means more than taking tho contractor's
word, ui course tbelr accounts will have
to bo investigated, and if thoy havo over
charged for anything thoy will roccivo

the overcharge. The 'Sun' ovldontly don't
know what it is talking about.
