this suit is instituted.

Something About Water.
There is something vitally wrong in the
system of administering the water-works of
Frankfort. The demand which the city of
Frankfort, in its organized capacity, through
its appointed ollicers, makes upon the citizen
upon many occasions, to pay for what it
does not furnish him to pay something
lor nothing is simply an organized raid
upon his purse.
We miiv say it is an old custom we may
sav tiie lathers did it, so do we bat that
does not justify the act.
If. a citizen were to enter the store ol
ano her, and with pistol drawn, demand
that be furnish goods without compensation,
the law would denominate it highway robbery
and the community would feel outraged.
But when the City of Franklort, represented
in its appointed officer, and authorized
by its solemn Council, appear before a
citizen and demand that he pay lor what it
did not furnish, it is about time the moral
sense of the community be aroused to the
enormity of the act, and some steps be
tukcnjbr proper telief.
Tl e Ciiv ot Frankfort claims to be a per
sonage, in a corporate sense, ol some character
It goes before the world, asserting
considerable dignity and authority in matters
ot right and jutico
What a pour show of defense, therefore,
can it make when its pride in p.iuctuied with
the needle of conviction which must elicit

the threat that unless they tameh submit to
the extension, they can get no more water
in any quantity gienl or less
The Co slitution ot the United States
says no private propeity shall be taken lor
public use without just compensation. The
Coustitut on ot Kentucky echoes this manifest
law ot equality of ownership.
Money is property, .and the city ot

takes money Irom its citizens lor water it
doi'S not furnish, nor claim to furnish.
