Makes Warm Reply to Agent
Giving Away City
Getting to the
Editor, Public Ledger:
In reply to the censorious "communi
cation" over the caption of tho C. & O.
K. 11. Agent, Mr. W. W. Wikoff, in your
issuo of tho 8th, wherein he seoins par
ticularly studious in making mo the
target without any solicitation on my
part. In his first clTusion, which he
claimed would bo his last, and though
ho seems surfeited with theso "en
lightened communications," precipitat
ed by his first "able article" on tho
dosing of the access to tho lower gride.
In my humble capacity as a Council
man and a guardian of the city's in
terests 1 certainly- claim the right to
pioteet and defend the integrity of the
assets of the city.
He says "they would impress the pub
lic as to what a menace the railroads
are to tlio city," whilst Council hereto
fore has been remiss from the, Mesme.-ic
spell of the Maschiavellian wiles of a
CHILD yet they have been taught a
valuable lesson from the past, and
though they have overlooked the en
croachments, illegal and unwarranted of
driving piles and obstructing the pas
sage ways both on Wall and Market
streets without leave or license, and the
Superintendent told .several citizens that
the 0. & O. K. It. designed making a
fill at the foot of Wall street, to which
tho driving of piles was always pre
liminary, which of course would entire
K- .-Ins.. the Wall street tirade. Mr,
Wikoff says, "this fill is an expensive
one," and also of the material used
tlie best, etc. What if it did cost the
C. & O. R. R. as much as the com
munity donated, i. e., $500,000, the
value of the right of way, and $115,000
in cash as a donation to its building,
what would be the compensation to the
city in return. It would be a danger
ous precedent, but an incalculable in
jury to the city prospective advant
ages, of transportation and lessening
the assets of the city.
Mr. WikolT says, "this street has
been abandoned as a roadway and boat
landing the past : years." Mr. Wi
koIV is in error and this property has
always been held by the city in PICK
SlMi'LK but held as an asset of the
citv for the use of the public, wherever
it was their convenience to do so, but
never as a street to bo absolved by
the O. & O. R. R. or any one else.
With equal propriety any individual
or corporation, by this power of the
anarchy of wealth, could prevent and
absorb the public park of the city in
the Fifth Ward and the rear of the city
infirmary, because neither is utilized
and is also held as assets of the city.
At what era did the C. & O. become
imbued with this spasm of diylanthroji
ic and frenzied sentiment, when they so
strenoiisly desire to beautify and adorn
the vista to the back premises of the
signatory citizens he recites as attested
by his masterly "communication."
Thanks to Mr. WikolV in stating that
Maysville can and will double, in pop
ulation within the next 10 years, in
this view we aro equally anticapating
this boom, and want to preserve this
Lower street and grade, to build n
tianiway thereon to connect with th
street railway to deliver the material
which is tributary to tho river and not
accessable to the railroad.
Now Mr. Wikoff and tho 4!. & (. R. R.
this coveted property is not within the
province of the City Council to part
from as a gift, it is tlio asset of the
humblest citizen to tlio one better

Bonn Boss Threatens To 'Punch Head'
of Philadelphia Chief in Alterca
tion on Evo of World's Sortcs.
Philadelphia, Oct. 8. With Manager
George Stalling!, of tho Boston Braves,
threatening to "punch the head off"
Connie Mack, leader of tho Athletics,
and every member of the Xational
Leairuo champions boiling over with
indignation in 'support of their chief, a
real battle for blood is promised for
Friduv when tlio two teams meet in the
llrst game of tho world series.
The sun was shining warm and bright
and there were high holies that the
rain clouds would be completely dis
persed nnd lavorable weather assured.
Following the explosion of Stalling,
because of the refusal of Mack to per
mit the uo of Shibe l'ark by the Knives
this afternoon the Boston Manager put
his chames through a short final prac
tice, at the National League l'ark. The
Athletics crawled into their uniforms,
and with Stuffy Mclnnis working out at
fust base, took their last warming up
on their home field.
