The Board of Mayor and Alder
men, at their meeting held on last
Saturday night, ordered the park
improvements which had been put
under way by the old Board, discon
tinued. We hope the Board will
think better of this matter, and con
clude to carry out the plan of beauti
fying the park. It can be made a
much more attractive spot with a
comparatively small expenditure of
money, and we believe the Board
will be heartily sustained by a large
majority of the tax payers of the
town in carrying out this or any
other improvement. It is to t e ex
pected that some old fogies will ob
ject to any public improvement, but
this should not retard the Board in
any good work. The towns and
cities which exhibit 11 healthv si)irit
of public enterprise always lead
those where old fogyism prevails.
They attract and hold the best class
of citizens, and always show a steady
grosvm in business prosperity, it is
commendable in public officials to ex
ercise care in the expenditure of the
people's money, but too much econ
omy is the worst form of extrava
gance. It is to be hoped that the
new Board will take no step back
ward, but will continue the liberal
policy of public improvement which
has characterized the administration
of city affairs for the last two years.
