INCORPORATION AND SEWERAGE.
We feel now that the air is becoming clearer and some,
at least, of the minor, differences between us and our valued
correspondent are only apparent and not real. In his an
swer he protests that he never meant to question, deny or dis
parage the undoubted right of the landless citizen to vote on
the incorporation question. "Previous writers on the other
side alluded to it" and he did the same. The right was ad
mitted "cheerfully" and the reference to the "individual con
science" was not expected to alarm or disturb the individual;
•He does not say our point was not well taken or well argii
ed; but that "no one has disputed it." Nothing could be more
satisfactory. A point has been raised; it is mentioned by both
sides and finally settled by unanimous and cheerful consent.
A few more points settled the same way and we will hold a
c - - Again, it is pleasing to be distinctly assured that the
accusation of slandering the town was not aimed at those who
are demanding a sewer system. It was somebody else who
said the indefensible and offensive things. "No rule of inter
pretation" will apply to the progressive party of incorpora
tion, and that is all we wished to know about it.
We are pained by the declaration that our reference to
the engrossing occupation of landlords is "beneath notice."
Really, that was the unkiudest — but in the interest of har
mony we will withdraw the objectionable paragraph since the
point to which it relates has been amicably settled.
We are not conscious of having violated the usual court
esy of debate or of having departed from the high-minded and
impartial course which our correspondent claims he has fol
lowed. We have not impugned his motives, for he has made
uo secret of them and they are not improper. He fears ex
horbitant taxation. So would we, aud would oppose it, if we
believed it to be threatened. Tho ouly difference, then, ap
pears to be as to the probable cost of the proposed improve
Referring again to the Stockton system, we note these
facts: The Stockton mains ;ire of the largest capacity and
buried deeply at the" lower end. They aggregate about ten
miles in length. There is a pumping plant connected with
them which cost not less that $1.5.000 of the $85,000, leaving
$70,000 for the main pipes. *
Now, Jackson is not one-fourth the size of Stockton, but
if it were it would cost $17,500 for such pipes at the same
rate. But we have no use for such immense sewers here and
this cost can easily be reduced one-half leaving $8,750 for
mains, and it will be noticed that this sum is close to the act
ual cost of a system in a sewer district comprising 302 lots as
shown by the records. That sum is as we said before, $S,
279.84. This included both branch pipes aud laterals and
would; exactly.correspoud to our mains and branches. Now,
admitting that our system would cost more, it certainly would
not cost more than twice as much without gross mismanage
ment in its construction.
-- There is not a shadow of doubt about private propert}'
being liable to* be taken for a public use in case of necessity,
upon making just compensation to the owners, and so the
persons who hold Jackson creek in lee simple can be called
upon to surrender a right of way across their valuable and
profitable demesne, whenever it is needed. And as to laying
sewer pipes in creeks they can be seen in that situation in ev
ery city that has sewer pipes and creeks to be traversed by
them. But it is not certain that the creeks will be needed.
It.niay be better to use the streets. The creek qitestjon j's,

after all) of little or no importance. If private parties own
the creeks and enjoy them so much that the}' are loath to
part with them, leave them in undisturbed possession. The
people already own some of the streets!
Now, as to the assertion "that it will be necessary to dig
very deep here to get an even grade," it may be answered that
an "even" grade is not necessary. All that is required -is : 'a
"down grade and that need not be steep. In some cases six
inches to the block or one inch to fifty-feet has been adopted.
Pipes can be laid to suit the ground.
We are called upon to quote a reputable engineer on
these questions. All the facts and figures we quote are from
the official records. Our readers can see what they, indicate,
and then, no civil engineer has beeu quoted on the other side.
We have been referred to an "English city" as an exam
ple, but of the exact location and conditions of said city'we
are not well informed. - .:
WESLEY M. AMICK.
Wesley M. Amick, Republican candidate for Superior,"
Township Two, is a native of this county and 'was boni with
in a mile of his present home. He comes from good ['stock,"
his father beiug one of the most successful business, met!. in
the. county, and the heaviest tax payer in Township two. His
record from youth up is known to his fellow citizens, and all
pronounce it uublemished in every particular. Wesley M.
Amick has made a fine success of life, aud it is couceded by
all who know him, irrespective of political affiliation, that he
stands the peer of the best busiuess men iv this section: It
was for this reason, among other good ones, that he was nom
inated for Supervisor, for if there is any public office in the
county that should be filled by a thoroughly good business
man it is that of Supervisor. This everybody- knows, aiid in
him Township Two has exactly the right man.
That the big coal strike in Pennsylvania is the result of
Bryauite scheming there appears to be no doubt. Opponents
of McKinley know that a tax on the prosperity of the country
offers the only possible hope for the success of Bryauism, it
having already become plain that the imperialism bogy has
fallen as flat as a flounder everywhere. We predict that some
very sensational -disclosures concerning the schemes which
have been and are still being manipulated to bring about
strikes and other labor troubles, because of the belief of the
manipulators that they will make votes for Bryan and Bryau
ism, will be made before the campaign closes. The work has
been secretly aud cunningly done, but not so adroitly that
convincing proof may not be secured and made public. ;
Among our candidates' cards will be found that of Dr. A.
L. Adams, Democratic nominee for Assembly for this district.
Dr. Adams is well known in tliiscquuty, having practiced
medicine in lone for about twenty years. We hope he will
not be elected, but if a Democratic Assemblyman is to repre
sent the Fifteenth District, Dr. Adams will do as well as any
In our list of candidates' cards, appears the name of M.
