CHARITY AND AID.
We have a communication, this
week, from well known citizens,
making a correct statement of mat
ters pertaining to a question brought
out by our Brandenburg correspon
dent. These gentlemen explain to
THE TIMES that they know the cor
respondent had been misinformed
in some particulars and they think
he put more stress on the case than
justice called for, as will be seen by
their letter.
Chairman Wessel dropped in and
asked us, this week, what we knew
of the particulars of this case. We
answered nothing. He then related
to us the fact that the case was in
his district, that he had gone there
and found it his duty to grant aid
to the family, never for a moment
understanding that it was other
than a loan or aid by the county to
be repaid by the beneficiary—this
being the man's own proposition.
The greatest interest THE TIMES had
in the communication was to turn
the same into as big a boom as pos
sible for the erection of a poor farm
with the presumption which is true,
that the present board of commis
sioners are very much the same as
have been all preceeding boards in
the matter of providing for the
poor. We saw nothing in the com
munication and there was nothing
in it reflecting on the board as such,
but simply a stroke at the present
system of caring for the careless
and improvident, including the de
servedly poor. The trouble lies in
the fact that the people have as yet
given their servants, the county
board, no proper means for taking
care of the improvident—and to
make the best of it—unfortunate.
It would be an unusually hard
hearted commissioner who could
stand by and see woman and chil
dren starving and freezing for the
want of fuel and provisions. It
never has been done and probably
never will be.
Now let the taxpayers go about
the matter of supporting the county
paupers, not only in the most sensi
ble but the most economical method
—the method provided by law and
proven through years and years of
experience to be the better plan, or
else not blame their servants for
doing the best possible in the
premises. This has always been
THE TIMES position in this matter.
Mr. Wessel also explained that
the board had decided to make no
improvements on the court house
till the proposition conld be sub
mitted to the people, giving the lat-
.ajra? ®»sra!
ter an opportunity to learn of the
necessity.
C. W. Childs a pioneer citizen of
the county and for some six years a
hotel keeper at Walcott, has sold
out the hotel, and together with his
family, passed through Wahpeton
this week on his way to Long Prai
rie, Todd county, Minnesota. Mr.
Childs has land in the county, and
is not sure just now whether he
will return and make Dakota his
future home or not, but rather
thinks not, he having interests in
Minnesota may remain there. Rich
land can scarcely afford to lose such
men as Mr. Childs and it is to be
hoped that he may yet return. Mrs.
Childs was quite ill here at a hotel
for a day or two, but recovering
her usual health the family departed
a»above stated.
Banker Leonard of Lidgerwood
laid over at Wahpeton, Friday, on
his way home after a business trip
to the twin cities,—and while here
paid THE TIMES a pleasant call.
Mr. Leonard gave us the particulars
of an accident which happened to a
little boy seven years of age at
DeGraff. It seems the train was de
cayed some two hours at this point,
and that the boy getting tired of
sitting in the car went out upon a
snow bank and while playing about,
the train was inovKd backward,
when the boy undertook to go
aboard
but fell in front of the wheels and
was frightfully mangled.. He lived
several hours, and being conscious
all the time, Mr. Leonard said dis
played the greatest grit and courage
he ever saw. An old soldier being
on the train said he never saw. any
Et thing to equal it. The little hero
was being taken some where to at
tend school, and being of Scandi
navian descent could not speak a
word of English.
It is given out from Washington
that the Democratic ways and'means
committee has agreed on a bill re
ducing the tobacco. tax $25,000,000
annually, with
110

change in the
matter of spirits. Liquor, tobacco
silks, and possibly a few other such
luxuries should be made to carry a
heavy taxation in the interest of
public revenue, and the above re
duction on the vile weed is simply
a stroke in the interest of the manu
facturer of the necessaries of life,
such as clothing, fuel and table ne
cessities. How a man made in the
image of cleanliness and decency
can go about puffing stinking
tobacco smoke in people's faces and
squirting filthy, reeking tobacco
juice from between their teeth onto
clean sidewalks and even on the
floor of living apartments, is a thing
we cannot understand, and it would
be a cold day before we should ever
vote to take any tax or any hard
ship off of such an' unnatural and
unseemly practice. The boys had
better save their money and their
self respect by forever refraining
from the slavish use of tobacco.
