.What shall we do with the Corporation?
To be oAnot to be?
Thai's the quest io Shall it fall
into disuse, or shall it live and be a
real thing, possessing life and vitality?
The lastly ycats of its Life
has been stornlvjjwith keen 'Hashes
of lightning clashing round about.
In the stores; at the street corners;
"r around the hotels and public places;
the old Sister has received many an
'acri'iiontous assault. Many a
, night she has slept in the jail of
dispair and in the gloomy cell of
discouragement with no fire or
'blanket to warm her despised and
fast decaying carcis. The question
is with the people. What
will you do? It cannot thrive
with so many pull-backs; so many
kickers. It canuotrun'.a winning
jrace so heavily handicapped. We
'realize that every one cannot see as
we see. But we speak the words
of truth and soberness, LjtejM

j the Corporation has been a benefit
to our town?, Who can say that
' it has not greatly improved our
streets from Judge Colyer's to W.
H. Cox's? Were not the trustees
the direct cause of the old dangerous
wooden side-walks being torn
away and nice brick pavements
laid instead? Did they not cause
the fences to be moved back on
Richmond avenue? Do they not
deserve 'much credit for these
things? Perhaps, 'tis true, they
have failed to do things that should
have been done, But point us to
one thing that they have done,
that has not been toward the
of our town? The
legislative body forour
town, and they cau, and do pass
ordinances that effect our peace of
mind and security of peisou that
cannot be found in the Statute
laws. Discharging of fire-crackers,
that shake off plaster; the hitching
of horses on Main street, the
of cowsandjhogs; (the
ordering of side-walks cannot be
taken cognizance of by the County
Judge for he has no jurisdiction.
The Brodhead Corporation has
prospered, because the very best
citizens have upheld, . instead of
using every means iat Jiaud to
break it down. Wc are'grieved to
see some of our leading oitizens opposing
its further existence. We
ueed a town corporationas a matter
of piotcctiou to our people
within and without. No wonder
our merchants sell, no more than
they do, because, since two weeks
before the Holidays,) people who
were compelled to come to town
would hitch their horses a mile
out and walk in, for fear of being
thrown or their horses made to
break loose at some fire-cracker
being discharged. And yet the
merchants whose life and property
depend upon their trade, will sit
down and curse because of small
sales, when they, themselves, are
the cause of it. When you hear
some fellow heapiug up abuse on
the town trustees, do you ever
remember what good they have
done and defend them against
unjust attacks? Let every good,
Jaw-abiding man do that for awhile
and it won't be but a shortjltitne
till most any good citzen would accept in
a place on the Board, although
it pays nothing. The life and
property of our town depend upon
it. Show us a single town in Kentucky
that has prospered, that is to
not incorporated?. No one cares
to be abused when he is laboring
without compensation and for the
good of the community, as trust
ees, have. Some people had rather
live on the head waters of Hell-"or-Sarien,
id the wilderness cf ig
JjtA f ViXV'
norance, and pay no tax whatever,
than to live in 'he most palatial
residence in New Ycri:, surrounded
with .'chools and churches and pay
a one-cent property fax and ; cents
poll It is no put of g'od citizenship
to penuit our property to be
levied on for taxes. It dots not
help the town to sue it or it offi
ccrs. Because the town r.ust then
seek legal counsel and the utan
that brings the .suit must help pay
that. If the levy is not good on a
legal technicality this year.it would, '
if necessity, be doubled next year.
Point us. please, to the gcod result'
either to the town or citizen by
such procccdure! We are for our
town. We would like to see it
made to blossom as the rose. We
ought to have better side walks
and we can have them. Wc want-to
see our College increase; our
homes- bright and happy; our
churches filled. But we must turn
another leaf and begui anew. Let
bygones be Let the
dead past bury the dead but let us
enoourage and stregthen the Corporation
and in a few years we will
see the good results. Suppose a
man would come here to buy prop
erty, what would he think and do
when he found out that our citizens
did not want and would not
maintain a corporation. If we do
not have building and improvements
how cau the carpenters,
brick and stone masons and
live? If the laboring men cannot
get employment how can they
buy and pay for your goods? How
can the merchants prosper unless
he sells his goods? Think, fellow
citizens, think! We appeal to you
in ) our sober thoughts to stop criti
sizing the municipal officers. Do
not say ve need no corporation or
that we will not pay our taxes.
If there is a Avrong there can always
be found an adequate remedy.
If any of the officers do not
do their duty, there is a way to
get them out, because it is nothing
but business and we should be firm
n business. But by all miun
give us the corporation with active
officers, for when that goes down
the hogs will wander upon our
streets, the wilt ring
their doleful tunes at our doors at
midnight: buildings will cease to.
go up; the few pretty ones that we
have grow dingy. Our people will
move away; out churches and colleges
will decay and rot and the
grass will take our streets.
Senator Harrell who exposed
John Whallen and his nefarious
schemes has bee.n arrested on a war-rent
sworn out b Whallen on the
charge of obtaining money under
lalse pretense. Whallen first stated
that it was a "pipe dream" but has
changed his tune and now makes
oath that the "Hayseed from Possum
Ridge" had taken advantages
and buncoec him out of $5,000 although
he asserts that he had but a
slight acquaintance with the Senator
frcm Logan. The simple
minded and unsophisticated Duke
of Burkinghain. Mr. Whallen will
likely claim when next heard from
that it was only intended as a small
wecbit of a Christmas present.
Wm. O. Bradley
recieved the nomination of the Republican
to oppose Joe Blaekbum
for senate but it will end next Tuesday
by the election of Blackburn
just as the contest between Goebel
and Taylor will end in the seating
of senator Goebel.
Senator J. L. Whitehead has
introduced a bill in General As'
sembly to establish the 31 Judicial
district to be composed of the
counties of Leslie, Clay anb Knox.
