FALSE AND AluAtTOl'S
The municipal government wat once within
the hands of the Democrats, and their shameful
disregard of public luteresls is known of all men.
What nu audacious falsehood! The Commer
cial ought to have more fieornev than to utter
such an assertion. The most valuable improve
ments we have originated while tha Democrat*
were in the majority in tbe City Council.
The City Water works, the most complete and
economical works oi the kind in their time wert
erected and perfected by the DemocraU.
the city was nearly always in tbo control of the
Democrats for many ycara, until a whig T.egisla
aitered the charter, and divided the city
lato five wards in order to give that party the as
cendency in the City Council. Then it was that
tha fouudatioti of our present city debt com
menced ; and it coniluued to tucrease rapidly.—
Tno Democrats appealed to ths Legisiutnrc ;
which nad become Democratic, to paid an act
limiting the debt uf the city ; aud wc have uo
doubt, our city would have been In debt a million
aud a half of dollars had it not been lor tbl*
saving clause lu the charter.
Nearly the entire debtof the city has been in
curred by tbe Republican party.
During the seven months the Democrats were
iu power in 1871, tney saved the city an immenae
sum of meuey. It wai known to every intelligent,
citizen at the time that the Republicans in the
Council bad repeatedly refused to have work done
on tne contract system. They persisted in doing
things by the da>; or paying their partisans just
what they pleased to charge. The hauling and
street cleaning was done by the day or load, and
the Democrats urged la vain to hare the work
doua by contract by tho loweat bidder. And as
toon as tbe got tbe power in 1871, this chango was
effected The saving was at once made manilesl
in the contract ior laying the Eleventh and Jelfer
sen streets water mai ne. Iu the bids for tbia work
there wes a difference of eboul forty thousand
dollars, it we remember right. Also on Mr. Galla
gher's bid, tbe lowest and best, except that of Mr.
Dillon's wbo took the oontract on s bid between
$17,000 and $18,000 below Mr. Gallagher's; and
we thiuk about $40,000 below Mr. Richardson's
W batever bas s.nca been saved through the work
ing of the contract system w due to the seven
month's control of the Democrats^ for.the Repub
licans have not dared to go back to tba old system
oi jobbery, except la instance« where it was done
regardless ot law aud the of oath of office.
But aside from tbia the city owes ils cheap and
eicetlent Fire Departmeut to the eeren month'u
rule of the Democrat« in 1871.
The Republicans had pautd an ordinance des
troying this Fire Department, and it would have
been carried into effect hal the DemocraU not got
ten the power aud by streneoiu efforts repealed
tbe ordinance. .
This ordinance provided for reducing the Fire
Department to three steam englues aud about
thirty men, which would have cost the city about
forty thousand dollars for engines and honsea, and
about Jifty thousand dollars a year thereafter.
The dotent of this measure is due to the Demo,
erst) in Coancil in 1871. And to them we owe
the fact that our city has been so well provided
against fire, and ready to meet and check tho de
vouring element that has committed sucb ssul
havoc all over the coontry during tbe present year.
The Commercial does the DemocraU great injue
tiee in tU reckless assenions, which deserve to be
termed as they are, willful and delibernta perrer
sions of the truth.

etderable eignibcance. Tne politic« of Ute State
le la a measure in tbe hands of the colored am.
In tbia county, where there are more colored vo
ters than any other piano in the State, there are
thirteen members of tbe Legislature to elect, ll
tbe teeimg expressed at tbe convention lakes bold
ot tbe minds of tbe colored voters of thie county, so
as to pot them in antagonism with tbe Republi
can Dirty, the Democratic legislative ticket will
certainly be elected, and Senator Thurman will be
re-elected. Mr. Peter H. Clark wee tbe orator of
yeeterday'e convention. A year ago hie voice wae
strong end influential in carrying the coloted vota
aoltd for tha Republicans. He recognized
tbe feet that no colored msn were given office by
the Republicans, but he argued that it waa time
ogh yet to expect and demand office. Last
spring Mi. Clark received the compliment ot a
nomination by the Republican Convention Of thie
county as delegate to tne Constitutional Conven
tion. It waa an uuforlunate concession for tha
Republicans to make, for tbe reeolt abewed that
prejudice against hie race was not extinct evsu
he Republican party. Ha waa overwhelming
ly defeated, while oJters on tha ttfobllcan ticket
were elected. Hare came to Mr.©Ur
a return of what ha bad feared waa tha tratts— that
the Republican party waa no more moved by what
he calls love off ustiee towards the oolorod people
than were the Democrats. Ha discovered that the
jonty of the K.pabiiaena had is voted the ne

that tbe disinclination to receive the negro ae an

Kwpobtioan, as among Democrats. He believed
tba only difference wae that tbe Democrat p ro
