"GIVE I S LIGHT."
Many criticisms have been made re
cently and are still being made as it
recent acts of. the city council. Many
questions aro being asked as to how
the city govorntni nt is being run. Dis
content is Widespread. Charges of ex
travagance and mismanagement arc
being heard, but none seem to vouch
safe 0 satisfactory explanation. What
is the floating indebtedness of the city'
Aro the salaries of the city employees
paid up to date? What does the CltJ
get for the rental and current sup
plied the opera house management'
"Who is ?in tho pny roll of the city
bow much do they get and what d<
they do? Why did council turn off tw<
of Its most reliable policemen, one ol
whom only about two years ago was
heralded and proclaimed almost a here
for bravery and botl: of whom have
Wished their lives on several occasions
when duly demanded that they make
arrests? What kind of contract hat
the city with the Reedy River Powei
Company; does the city meet Its ob
ligations to that company promptly
or aro accounts allowed to run months
nt a time? A satisfactory answer tc
these questions would be greatly ap
preciated by the taxpayers of tho city
Since city council has authorized i\
Statement that It will set forth its rea
HOJ18 for turning down that trolley
line petition, it might at the same time
allay a great deal of dissatisfaction by
giving n satisfactory answer to a fow
of these questions. We believe that
n clear and candid statemont o* the
council's position in these matters
would put the council in better fav
or with the citizens than It now Is.

u LET'S HAVE A REPORT*
We do not believe that it Is th? duty
of a county newspaper to attempt to
"run things". We do not find it a
pleasant occupation to criticize any
body. We do not believe that It is
good business policy for a county pa
per to "dip" into everything that goes
wrong. Put when the occasion de
mands It, wo believe that we should
do what we Can to aid in getting at a
proper understanding of affairs when
??content Is evident and expressed
on every side.
Tbe charter of the City of Laurons
directs that within a certain time af
ter a j?ow council takes the reins of
governnif-nt that a report of the fi
nances of the city government shall
bo mndo and that the same shalf bo
published. Wo haven't the charter b*'
fore us, but to tho best of our knowl
edge the limit within which this report
is to be made Is sixty days. The pres
ent city council has not complied with
'his provision in the charter nor has
J<ny other .council for a number of
yea*** Past. The people are becoming
Impatient; thoy are doslrous of know
ing the exact status of affairs in the
city in which they live and for whoso
support they pay their hard earned
money. City council would greajtly re
lieve this anxiety on the part of the
Mtlzens If it would see Its way clear
obey tho law and set forth In plain
"es tho exact status of tho city's
