End of Controversy in Matters Per
taining to Municipal Affairs.
Editor Keowce Courier: Will you
allow rae space in your paper to re
ply to some of the charges you make
in last week's issue of The Courier
in "Past, Present and Future"? ,
In regard to the question of the
"City Hall" being out on the side
walk: lt seeniB to me that you have
absolutely failed to show the Coun
cil, or the public, any evidence to
lead them to believe that you were
in any sense justified In making the
broad assertion that you did in
"Public Improvements." You st>t out,
In very postlve terms, that the City
Hall is three feet and seven inches
out on the sidewalk, nnd in last
week's issue you set about in some
way to prove this assertion, and say
that you found certain irregularities
existing at this place, and that 1
knew of these irregularities, from
the fact that I went to you and got
you to help me to establish my lines,
both on the front and on College
street, and thai we moved the Une,
or found that lt liked about two feet
(and of course you gave me the two
feet). And then you say "I's lt not
strange that he did not break forth
with criticisms of gros- negligence"?
To this I wish to say that Mr. Harri
son was there at the time, and if the
editor's memory has not played bini
another of those mean tricks he will
remember that we did not move my
line one blt. but decided that the
old fence was about as near right as
we could get lt, and if lt was two
feet short why did you not give me
that? That was mine, and especial
ly as 1 was a new-comer to your
town, and should have had a fair
And as to the breaking forth with
criticisms: I did not know how to
criticize until the infallible editor
got on to the Council with both feet,
and you can make most any one kick
a little If you put your heel down
hard enough. Hut I think the edi
tor lets the cat out of the wallet In
the next few words. You say: "Was
his attention called to the matter?
Knowing his prof OU rd fondness for
me, and the fact that our ideas on
some subjects wore so widely diver- j
gent, I hesitated to make a sugges- !
Hon, and instead of going personally '
to him, requested a mutual friend to ,
do so." Here the editor unwittingly .
shows the cloven foot. If we were
not friends, whose fault was it? Who
made the breach? But for all that,
1 am surprised that the editor would
make such a flimsy excuse, when I
have gone, on two different occasions,
Into the editor's ofllce and talked
over matters pertaining to the Inter
ests of the town, and why should he
fear to approach me on any subject
that he felt was for the best Interest
of the town? Talk about timidity
and modesty, but this is the finish of
the LIMIT.
Then this mutual friend' Wonder
who he was? Surely not a mutual
friend, for if so, when you requested
him to see me and- not let me ruin
both myself Kttiu Hie town, he surely
would have done BO. Inn no ope
came in my hom ol dlstr^vs! N'o
one came to any thal l was very
kindly being remembered hy h.?
good fd i io i . too bad, ?ou';.
Now let's see about, how you ar
rive at the corner so correctly: Let's
see. Three feet and seven Inches
out on the street! Well, that's pret
ty close for guess work. 1 had al
ready measured the block on which
the Citj Hall stands, and thought
that I was about right before I put
the paving down on College street,
and thought that I was doing about
as well as 1 could. Since you have
called my attention to the matter and
have made so much stock of it 1
want to tell you that, you are very
much mistaken about tho way you
say the blocks measure out. The
block on which I live measures Its
full 120 feel. So you seo you were
good to me after all. and the block
east, and on which tho City Hall is
located, measures out IIS feet. This
is the block that was three feet and |
seven inches too long: hence, the
necessity for moving the building.
(Hadn't you heller retract this state
ment, as well as the statement that
wc should follow your grade line
esablished grade?)
You have misquoted me hy saying
"He lays to my credit, or to my dis
credit, tho making of the sidewalk
near the Hine Ridge railway right
of-way." This is a mistake. I did
not say that you built (or made) a
sidewalk, for I have long past found
that you are unconditionally opposed
to either building up or cutting down
thc: walks, but are content to just let
them go along right easy, except
when you bael the wall pul up that
I mentioned in my answer to "Publie
Improvements." There was some
arbitrary cutting of trees then. I
say "arbitrary"! 1 say thal because
some one came very nearly sliding
down the breech of tho editor's nose,
and I guess he did not have any per
mission, Ol' al least not from all the
people. Bul WO did not hold this
against the editor, for in thal par
ticular case I think ho did right, and
had he done? more of thal kind of
work I rather think he would have?

I think so. I have been told that peo
ple have been falling off this walk
from time immemorial, and that no
previous council has ever done any
thing to relieve its dangerous condi
tion. The old high, jagged wall was
there when the editor was a little
boy, and during all your long and
prosperous administration , Mr.
Steck, did nothing to relieve this dan
gerous condition, but waited patient
ly for his suce8sors in office to do the
work, while he got in behind them,
and hollers that we aro arbitrarily

of Malu street had priority rights
over the north side? This ls another ?
of those very broad statements, and
reminds me of a little story I once |
heard. It goes like this. Two dar- ,
kies met up one bright morning, and
one said to the other, "Say, Sambo, j
we got a little baby down at our ?
house, and I bet you can't guess whe
ther it's a girl or a boy." S: Sambo
propmptly said "lt's a girl." But his
dusky friend assured bim that ho was
mistaken. "Well, then, It's a boy." t

presuming quite a blt on our good- ;
ness to think that at this late date,1
and after being established by the
Emperor, to think that we will dis

ho can make any mistakes? Talk
about tho infallible, start kicking,
because out of justice to ourselves,
have shown the way in which you
hove handled tho town affairs, you
have seen flt to dub us as the infalli
ble, when there is absolutely not a
single utterance in what wo said in
answer lo "Public Improvements"
that any ono, except the editor, could
construe in that way.
Now about tho mud-hole In front
of Messrs. W. H. Cary's and S. K.
Dendy's: To keep a mud-hole very
long at this place would be like try
ing to keep water on a duck's back,
for, as every one knows, this is the
highest hill in Walhalla, and 1 have
boon out there and have absolutely
failed to lind the last bit of trace of
this mud-hole, and as for the one at
the depot, well, the editor knows very
well that lhere ls no mud-hole there.
lt is true that while lt is pouring

several months past, you can go

Now, I am again surprised that the
editor of Tho Courier and tito Mayor
of Walhalla for nearly live years, I
would undertake to say in print that
there was no mud-hole in front, of
Mrs. Maxwell's residence, anti that it |
was never called to his attention. I
Again, 1 want to say that this asser

I asked a very old man If he could
remember anything nbout a mud-hole ;
in front of Mrs. Maxwell's at any j
time, and he replied that he could ?
not remember the time when there
wns not one there. Wonder if the
editor's memory has not played him a
mean trick? Mr. Steck says that one
W. M. Brown lived bard by. Now I
am frank to confess that I do not un
derstand just what ho means when
he says "hard by," and then goes on
quite at length about my being too
modest to mention the fact to the
mayor. Too modest to set up a kick!
Too modest to try to array one part
of the town against the other! Too
modest to let our little town alone in
peace and happiness, but write long
articles in The Courier and tell the j
people in one breath that they are
spending all their money on Main I
street and leaving off all other
work, when they pay taxes and
should be looked after, and then In
the very next breath give us hail Co
lumbia for doing anything on the
side street without his permission, or
that of "our mutual friends." (and
our mutual friend never showed up).
Well, this 1B tho first time that I
have ever been accused of having an
over-abundance of modesty. But 1
want to make a confession: 1 am too
modest (or have boon) to write long
articles in tho paper trying to create
j an unrest among tho people, and to
criticise everything that the Council
did, and not (ind in all their work
one little blt that I could have a kind
word for, and I would be the last
man in town to be calling up the
mistakes of tho ox-.Mayor, for I real
ize that I will make some mistakes. I
make them in my own business, and
1 will make some for tho town.
"One W. M. Brown lived hard hy!"
One J. A. Steck has an office hard by!
Just the same distance from Mrs.
Maxwell's that I am. Now, If he
means a block away when he says

nicer in the editor to have made this
1 resting place of tho dead a thing of

den, while ho was in office, and not to
have waited on those whom he know
not to bo very fond of him?
Now, Mr. Editor, I had thought
last week that I would do no mon1
writing on this subject, and now I
am through. This is tho last half of
tho second inning, and we both have
had our say. Von began tho very un
pleasantly, and while I would have
been very glad ol' the editor's sup
port, nevertheless, ho is perfectly
I'ree to do and to say what, he likes,
lint we are going right along, whe
ther you go with us or uot.
With apologies to the public for
imposing on them in this long article.
I beg to remain. Yours truly,
W. M. Brown, Mayor.
In closing tho controversy that has
arisen hy reason, I think, ol' Mayor
Brown taking undue exceptions to
what I have said editorially as to
certain conditions that obtain in
Walhalla, and as to my feeling that
methods other than those adopted
would have boon bettor, I shall have
but little to say-nothing, in fact,
with regard lo the conditions called
to the attention of Council save that
the criticisms were made regarding
things ol' the Immediate present;
that they exist to-day as they existed
When attention was called to them,
and that the conditions stand for
t hemselves.
With regard to the long-standing
question of correct location ol' Hie
CO rn ere ?it College and Main street,
north side. I can lint say, as I said
before, that, lo the best ol' my recol
lection ol' the conditions there, suffi
cient doubt exists to cause careful
survey and location of linos before
doing permanent paving on tito side
streets. Mr. Brown informs us that,
ho has made tho measurements re
cently and linds them materially dif
ferent from my recollection ol' the
mader. I can lint say, thou, l hal evi
dently I was mistaken. Hie measure
melita as ho gives thom being practi
cally the reverse of my recollection.
The recognized aron ol' each (own
block ls, ?ts l understand ii, four
acres square, thus giving a frontage
ol' practically 117 feet, and this is
my recollection of Hie standard of
measurements some four years ago.
If measurements then woro incorrect,
wliy perpetuate the error? If the
more recent measurements aro cor
rect as to frontages shown, one block
having 120 feet, the oilier 118, ls
that liol evidence ol' inaccuracy? That
particular Intersection of streets has
boen questioned tis to accuracy of
corners for years before either Mr.
Brown or I gave tho matter a
thought. Tho town owning tho cor
ner of ono block and the other block
1 ivlng no building erected at. either
Main sti t corner, ls it unreasonable
to suggo the propriety of settling
this long-standing question?

could well have been considered.
In the mal ter of criticism of condi
tions at. the cemetery i have no
apology to make, and, as he suggests,
I have, to my deep sorrow, a personal
interest there. 1 had besides, during
my administration, a public Interest j
therein, and the records will show:
for each of the three years during
pari of which I endeavored to serve
the town-(not nearly live years, as
my friend has twice asserted in his
articles) -that. moderate expendi
tures were made for the purpose of
keeping the public cemetery clean.
This. I think, ls better evidence of
care than ls the present hearsay evi
dence of neglect.
As to priority rights of property, I
would judge that a town block hav
ing on each corner an old landmark
would he considered as having prece
dence over a block opposite with no
building al either corner thereof.
This may ho wrong, hut to me it
seems reasonable.
One of the old landmarks of the

the south side of Main street a! his
point, and it would, I think, be well
to locate thc corner here now, thus
giving the owner notice of his lines,
and If, in the absence of the Mayor
or some member of the Council, he
fails, when he builds, to follow the
markings, ho will have no one bul
himself to blame for results.
I am well aware of the fact that

faultless, and Mr. Brown well says
