Let Tom Alone.
Tho Tom Padgitt natatorium was
not built for privato speculation. At
least, that was not tho leading motive.
Thero is no merchant or broker or
professional man in tho city who oan
fail to remember the circumstances
under which it was built. Or if any
one forgets it the brgotfulness is rop
rehensiblo. Thero was a long and
loudly expressed desire heard on all
hands that the grand wator about
whioh all inou enthused should bo
utilized for tho advancement of Waco.
Tho call for a natatorium was loud
and general. It was understood that
the world should bo mado aware of tho
great virtues of tho artesian wator and
that the facilities for bathing should
be had and tho virtues advertised to
tho world. Why should not Waco bo
a seoond Hot Springs. Tho pressure
ot public opinion was great and con
tinued, but no one seemed willing to
step into the breach and invest private
funds for what was esteemed a very
general publio benefit, but whioh was
very doubtful as a private speculation.
It was, eventually, under tho pressure
of publio desire, that Tom Padgitt do
oided to risk his private means in def
erence to publio demand. Mr. Padgitt
did not need to use private speculation
outsido of his own business. He did
not need to mako new and doubtful
experiments. It is nonsense to say
that Tom Padgitt built tho natatorium
for privato gain. Ho may havo hoped
onventually to havo realized at least
interest on the investment, but tho
truth is ho went outsido his own
business where gains wore certain,
moved by the popular outory and be
cause no ono else would do it. Onoo
having engaged in it ho wont on with
it with tho thoroughness of the busi
ness man he is, and spared no monoy
to make tho natatorium first-class in
all its appointments, which it isj
That Tom Padgitt in giving to Waco
this grand natatorium was moved by a
laudablo public spirit and bcoame a
publio benefactor only tho uttorly
stupid can deny.
The natatorium does not pay. It
would tako five years to
mako a natatorium pay ex
penses from homo patronage
and any business man will readily un
derstand why. Tom Padgitt io not
working for tho present. Ho bus
spent and is sponding money liko
wator to advertise abroad and bring
people to tho water and Waco. Ho is
doing a marvelous work in advertising
Waco, having in contemplation a big
foreign patronage and the nccossary
outlay for hotels and other things.
What should be the attitude of any
business man towards this great en
terprise undertaken and carried on
with as much pluck, public spirit and
privato monoy. Tho question needs
no answer. If any ontorprise evor
ohallenged the hearty moral support of
overy citizen of Waoo this natatorium
does. Jay Gould and other men hold
ing in their hands advantages to Waco
are wined and oharapagned and oigar
red and toasted till thoy try to escape.
A wealthy privato oitizen spending
piles of money for a publio institution
should at least recoivo tho moral sup
port of tho oommunity and that com
munity should at least see that no ob-
staolo is put in the way ot a citizon
working for tho good of the town. At
least, lot.Tom Padgitt alone.
