THE NEW CHARTER.
Other Salient Points
To tho Editor of tho News,
In publication of my first article on
tho new charter, the compositor com
bined a sentence in regard to the social
evil, with one on the power to bond.
As written, it was this: "The provis
ions of the now oharter leaves it to the
wisdom of tho counoil, guided by ex
perience, to regulate and control it;"
meaning the social evil; and in refe
rence to bonding, I wroto this-
"While it increases the power of bond
ing for the purpose of impro ing alleys
and opening streets, alleys and avenues,
and for opening, establishing, improv
ing and maintaining publio parks, gas
works, and other works for properly
lighting the city; it, as the general
law does, protects the issuing of bonds,
not to exceed six per cent of the ad
The proposed charter authorizes the
council to divide tho city into not less
than five nor more than ten wards; un
til changed, however, wards to remain
as they are.
This is intended to meet -the de
mands of increased population and ter
ritory. When a number of wards are
added, for each new ward thcro will be
two additional aldermen, as it requires
that each wnrd shall be represented by
It also requires a majority of the
members of the council to appropriate
the sum of five hundred dollars or up
wards, or to diminish or increase the
This provision will prevent a meet
ing of less than a majority of the entire
board of aldermen from passing any
measure for appropriating any consider
able amount, affecting the city
Tho secretary is mado ex-officio
clerk of the police court, and as such, is
authorized to administer oaths, take af
fidavits, issue warrants, subpoenas and
other processes etc.
With this exception the duties of
officers remain the same as in the gen
A most important provision is the
power given to the council to require
railroad companies to keep the streets
through which they run in repair, and
to light the same and to construct and
keep in repair bridges and crossings at
the intersections of streets and over
all ditches, sewers and culverts on the
line of the railroad, and to direct the
construction of such railroads, turn
outs and rivulets so as to inter
fere as little as possible with the
use of the streets. Recent efforts
have been made by the council in the
direction contained in this provision,
but failed for want of proper authori
ty under tho general law.
The power to collect occupation
taxes is the same as the general law,
with this additional provision: "Tho
city council shall have power in addi
tion to collect a license tax from all
persons, corporations or firms, or occu
pations upon whom or on which a li
cense tax is imposed by the state."
i no cnarter aumonzes mo council
to create the office of recorder, but re-
uircs a two-thirds voto of all the al-
ermen elected to do so. This can bo
contcraoted by tho popular will in elect
This cpmmunication is intended to
bring to notice a few of the material
changes made from the general law by
the proposed charter, and which for
want of space woro omitted from mv
first article. There aro minor matters
that are unnecessary to mention; add
ing, however, for ttjo benefit of thoso
on tho outside, who are proposed to be
included in the new limits, I will state
that section 47 provides that territory
aaueu snail only be liable for its pro
portion ot future indebtedness, whilo
section io extends tho benents of pub
lio schools ovor said territory. I will
perhaps say something about this
boundary matter in another article.
I will say, however, that tho new
charter is not a recent idea. Members
rof the council and citizens have felt

the need of a special charter and it
has been time and again discussed. A
general provision cannot bo made ap
plicable fully to tho wants and interests
of a city the sizo of Waco, and tho
general law under which wo hao been-
acting has for some years been fi It to
be inadequate in its provision, and
tho council has been time and again
deterred from adopting measures for
the public good for want of authority
in tho city's organic law. The pro
posed charter is designed as far as hu
man loresight can extend to remedy
A SMALL MEETING.
A New Manufaolurincr Protect
Suggested for Waco.
Pursuant to request ot Mayor Hindi
man, given on cry short notice, a few
persons met this morning at ten o'clock
at the Pacific Hotel to meet Mr. R. J.
Sledge, of Kyle, Texas, and president
of tho Executive Committee of the
State Alliance of Texas. Thcro were
present Mr. Slcdgo, Dr. Thos. Moore,
Hon. J.C. Stephenson, Mr. C. M.Wil- ox
and Mr. Wm. Cameron. Tho purpose
of Mr. Sledge's visit was to consult with
the people of Waco in regard to con
tributing a bonus for the establishment
in this city of a large plant for the
mauutacturc oi sugar irora sorghum
cane, after the new diffusion process
now in successful operation in several
places in Kansas. The matter was
talked over informally and the conclu
sion was reaehed to call a mass meeting
of the citizens at the court house on
Saturday night, January tho 5th, one
week from to-night The projeot, as
suggested and discussed, seemed to
meet with great favor from the few
gentlemen present, and efforts will be
made to induco a largo mass meeting
at the time appointed, when Mr. Sledgo
will return to Waco. In another col
umn will be found somo crude infor
mation in rcgaid to the project.
The Christian Ohuroh.
Tho Christian church is situated on
the corner of Eleventh street and
Washington Avonue in the midst of
ono of the moat fashionable and desira
ble residence portions of the city.
The building is an elegant new brick,
modern in architecture and appoint
ments, xne noor is inclined, band'
somely carpeted all over, and seated
with opera chairs. It has most con
venient robing rooms and baptistry,
The seats are free to all, and poor and
rich are welcomo to all tho services,
The organization embraces some of the
most prommont pcoplo in the city.
Tho church has been fortunate in se
curing the services of Rev. J. W. Hig,
bee, of Mexico, Mo., as pastor. Ho is c
man of great piety and energy, and as
a preacher, will have no superior in the
eity. no brings to his new held

Eld. J. W. Higbeo leaves Monday
for Waco, Texas, where ho has accepted
tho pastorato of tho Christian chureh.
Elder Higbce's departnre is very much
regretted, for during his stay here he
has mado hosts of warm friends. His
work for tho church has been unceas
ing, and long after his departure, its re
sults will stand as a reminder of his
labors in the interest of his congrega
tion. Tho Ledger takes ploasuro in
recommending Elder Higbee to tho
people of Waco as being an earnest,
faithful worker in tho cause of religion.

Owing to the ptrsistcnt rain, the

The play last night at the Garland

sons whose judgment on thcatcrical
matters commands tho highest respect.
MoLcin is said to be the coining man
and was declared superb.
Tho old city charter is very defec
tive. It is olten vaguo and cumber
some, and cripples the action of the
council in important movements, and
the council gets the blame for tho de
fective charter. Tho new oharter is a
careful elimination of defective powers
and tho substitution of clear, precise
and definite powers.
The communications of ''citizen,"
who gives a good deal of information
on the new. charter are uppropos at the
prcent moment. Tho extension of
the city boundaries and tho rest of the
oity charter aro two distinct subjects
and should be so understood. It is to
be hoped that they can be so disassoci
ated that the defeat of the extension,
if it should occur, may not defeat the
oharter which is something needed.
