Eottor Star:?Having heard a good deal
said of the wasieiul extravagance of May.r
Bowen (pardon me for giving him that title, a
title 1 am satisfied he has no le^al right to weir)
1 thought I would take a ride about the city and
*ee for myself. From a careful observation I
hare come to the conclusion that there In at this
time upward* of 2,ww men emplove.l by the
several w ard ConBiwionen, exclusive of the
men employed by the ward ?SK52^^fciS
will probably number l,00n more. I am In
formed tt>at Ui? First Ward Commissioner has
c?"mij?ioner'i under him, and the
rourth w ard Commissioner 15 assistants, with
? force ot upwards of 300 men. He has 4 gang
ol men. numbering about 60, mak-ng casual re
pairs. I saw one day during the p.wt week four
ol his assistants sitting in the shade by the side
of a lence watching about 30 men. who were
leaning upon their shovels discussing; Mr.
Bowena pruopecta of election. I saw a
large number of men digging gutters or
trenches on each side or North Cai?
. ttItfet;?u ,n ? front *r St- Aloysius
!j ' a throwing the loam or clav into th?
middle ol the street, thus burying up a tine eoat
of gravel, which was put on this street last
rear, at an expense of *2,ono_t hereby convert
iH3-,ln? excellent driveway into a mud hole.
Thisis out one of a thousand similar instance*
that might be named. The corporation laSo -
ers have not been paid srnce the 1st of January
a period ot most Ave months. The bank account
?. overdrawn ?1*0,000, besides $13i>,oo-i in
cheeks, which are not honored at the bank, and
are seeking purchaser* on the streets at ninety
cents on the dollar. In addition to all this there
is a floating debt against the corporation, al!
contracted under Mr. Bowen, amounting to up
wards of *300,000. Yei with this state of ti.iuit>
.-taring him iu the lace, Mr. Bowen puts
extra aborersto work, knowing that he has not
the mean* t j pay tbem. Men are brought in
troin the country, where they are needed to till
the soil, mid put to work on streets merely
to secure their illegal votes for Mr. Bowen.
A. w7?t'00r '!?ludet' are made to believe
that they will receive constant employment at

It will be observed that this order is addre.?,
to btcmk and signed by blank. It wu presen ??
. ,n B00*1 ,a*th by one of the corporator
T* 1,SJ .fvening. This morning I
ottered one ol these orders forfitTy cents on s
dollar, the i-oor fellow saying that he liar
nothing in the house to cat. It was a order
and he finally ottered it lor *1. or ten oenNot. u
dollar. I have heard of several being old at thi>
price. Mr. ikiwen pretends to be the friend ot
the poor laborer, would it not be as well for him
to devote a part ot the funds expendad on hi
billingsgate hand-bill, and in buving up Tom
*" lorence. in redeeming these orders I under
stand he holds ?30,000 in gorernment bonds 11
he is a friend of the laborer let him sell tbo-e
bonds and take up a part of the illegal orders
that his commissioners have palmed oil u-.ji
his starving lal>orers.
Mr. Editor, is there no way to stop this mil
man in his wasteful expenditures? Whv no
appeal to the courts? Let a petition be dra*i.

" ill not some one move in the matter?
Ihere is an old law of this cori>oration re
straining the Mayor from letting out anv con
tract until he has fiiet ascertained whether
there are funds to pay for the same. Abort
three months ago the Councils passed a bill
directing the Mayor to the laborers in can.

directing him to sus|>end all work unless he !i*
the lunds to pay the laborers. But tbis law
like many other cori>oration law*, is wholly Ig

mined to disregard both the laws of Conarev
and the corporation just as often as they com.
in conflict with his demagogue schemes.
