Mi suit AgainiittiieCii- Knilrely In
the Interest or the Tux Paj-ers and
Wot Tor Personal t.ain.
The silliest, most laughable, and most
absolutely inconsistent assertion that has
yet been made in the connection with the
damage suit of W. H. Geat against the
city as the outgrowth of the peimanent
improvement or Second avenue by means
of paving, is that it was brought with a
view not of recovering money for loss, but
"to procure for the people a fair and just
method of public improvement; one that
would operate on all alike." Such a sug
gestion while made no doubt, with a sin
gle motive and that to help Gest out of
the scrape he has gotten into in suing
the city, contains about as many fool
ideas as cculd possibly be crowded
into the language in which it is couched,
and is in itself a presumptous insult to
the public whom it attempts to stuff with
the veriest rot, while to merely intimate
that the proposition had come from Mr.
Gest himself would be to make a very bad
matter worse and would be all that is
necessary if indeed anythiog is necessary
to establish the inconsistency of his at
tack upon the city.
To assert that a man who demands
3,000 of the tax payers to make good
what he considers a personal loss to his
property suffered in consequence of an
improvement in which all our people
share "19 not trying to force money from
tax payers," and that in this matter he
has proved bimst-'.f the friend of the peo
ple, is preposterous. What does the idiot
who makes such a botch of his attempt
to excuee Mr. Gest, take the people of
this community for? Does he regard
them bs being so deficient in mental de
vel opement and conception as himself?
of course if Mr. Gest had
been actuated by a thought single
to the interest of our tax payers, he
would have demanded $8,000 of the city
for his alleged damages. But no, he
merely wanted to place the city under
obligations to him, to win if were possi
ble, hold the result if it were favorable
to him over tbe heads of the city and
say, "I don't want your money penile
men, in the language of 'Bertie the
Lamb,' take this penny I can get plen
ty more. It is so natural to presume
that anybody goinc to the trouble of su
ing the city should stipulate his damages
at (3,000, for the one purpose to estab
lish a great legal principle. It is very
strange J that of all the other prop
erty holders affected by the
re-established grades no other should
think'enough of ihccitv to teach italeseon
by suing it. Neither is it in the highest
sense complimentary to the mayor, city
attorney end counci'.men that a citizen
shou'd feel it his duty to teach them as
to whether tbey kucw their business in
establishing the system of public improve
ments under which our streets our being
The simple truth of the matter is thst
Oest's suit wis a part of the soreheade;
ness that he manifested toward the city
and all its people over his overwhelming
defeat for re-election, It was
brought in a vindictive spirit
rather than in a dispo-ition to do the tax
payers a favor, and had he at the time
been favorably inclined toward the city or
had he at the time any idea of being a
candidate for congress he would no more
have thought of suing the city than of
submitting himself to decapitation.
The Ak(;cs believes the city's system
of street improvement is right, it looks to
be general good and not to how it may
affect individuals, and no one man is call
ed upon to teach it its right it the premi
ses. If Mr Gest is particularly desirous of
doing so much for our tax payers he will
withdraw his suit against them. The
city should make no compromise, but as
long as the case stands, "fight it out on that
line if it takes all summer."

Catarrn Can't be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucons surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. Tbe perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
