Of Pat Cleburne ICamp Held Las
Night. t
A rogiilar meeting of Pot Cleburne
Camp was held last night at the city
hall. Captain Johnson occupied the
chair and Adjutiut M. A. Cooper tho
secretary's desk.
The minutes of tho previous meet
ing were read and adopted, aftor
which several new members were ad
mitted. A committee was appointed to wait
upon ex-Governor Ross at his hotel
and extoncl him an invitation to visit
tho Camp and address them. Tho
governor expressed his regrets at his
inability to comply, and the commit
tee so reported.
Tho most importatant businose
of tho bession was upon a ciroular
from Gen. W. L. (Jablo, inviting ths
Gamp to unito with other camps in tho
formation of a State Confederate Vet
erans organisation. This question
cioitcd much discussion which was in
dulged in by a number of members,
both pro and con, but tho goneral
Impression is that the uiojority of tho
members will favor the union. A
committee of six, composed of Messrs.
Ham, West, Mayfield, Blair, Shaw
and Moore, was appointed to confer
together about tho matter and to re
port at the next meeting, to bo held
next Friday night.
Tho meeting then adjourned.
The Two Critical Aldermen.
Editor Evening Nows:
The Day in its issue Saturday morn
ing, attempting to justify its roporter
in publishing tho proceedings of tho
city council some of whioh didn't ooour
attraots my attention. Does the Day
pretond to say the counoil oannothavo
a secret sossion? or that every ques
tion shall bo made public at once,
whether or no? Whon tho council ro
jeoted tho bid of 07 l-8o on tho 150
street improvement bonds, whioh wore
afterward sold at ifri, did tho Day
man seo any daik lantern business in
that? Has the council not time uud
again closed its doors against repor
ters and ovoryono eUe, to which 1 he
Day man found no objection? Did
these secret meetings turn out a dark
lantern oaucus against tho intorosts of
the poople? I repeat that the publi
cation, before the true teason for ob
jection was Known, was unwise as well
as unauthorized. Tho roportor may
liavo thought it "a scoop," and on
that ground may bo oxouaoablc. But
is not the city's business at times liko
that of individuals, whore a prema
turo publication would defeat the ob
jeot sought? I beliovo as does tho
mayor and many other members of
tho oity counoil with whom I have
talkod,that tbo bonds all aro right and
that our power from tho charter is all
right, aud my objeot in keeping the
mattor quiet was U first find out if
possible if tho objoction was a real
one, or if it was to got out of tho ac
ceptance of tho bonds. I believe
every sound minded man in Waco
will agree with mo. I want the tax
payers to watch my aotions in tho
city oounoil. If I do anything hurt
ful to their interest, I want thorn to
spoak out, and I want thorn to keep
watoh on tho other fellow likewise.
Tho reporter says soraothing of a salo
of bonds at 92 1-2. I suppose ho re
fers to tho Bale of 9 lo. Now if there
arn any political axoa to bo sharpened
at this peculiar timo, just before tho
election, lot it nob bo done at tho ex
pense of tho peoplo. Give right to
whom right belongs and you will feel
better after it is all over.

Editor Kvini.no Nkwh.
Thursday morning I received a let
ter from Mr. l'aimer, of tho North
western Mutual Life Insurance Co.,
containing an opinion from their at
torney as to tho validity of the Street
Improvement Bonds. Thoy raised an
objection and declined to buy this is
sue As the point in question was a le
gal one, I desired to have tho matter
thoroughly investigated by an attor
ney or attornoys beforo replying, or
making tho matter public, and all tho
councilman with whom I oouvorsed
agreed with me. 1 wont by tho city
hall in tho morning and handed tho
letter to Mayor MoCulloch, asking
him to look over it, IIo took tho lot
ccr and remarked that "we had better
not let the reportors get hold of it." I
I ogrcod with him and said that it
wbs not a mattor for publication until
wo had been advised by our oity attor
ney, who was absent, as to the legal
ity of the point at issue. At the coun
cil meeting thursday night 1 told tho
counoil that I had matters of impor
tance to refer to tho city attorney for
an opinion.
Atter tho meeting, Thursday night,
the roporter of The Day was ap
proaohed by Mayor McCollooh who
told him tho bonds had boon refnsed,
and remarked that he wanted to talk
to him about it. Tho loiter was not
"on file," but a oonfidontial matter be
tween the Mayor and myself, until it
could bo presented to tho finance com
mittee and city attornoy for investiga
tion. Tho reader can judgo whether
tho Mayor violated a confidential mat
ter or not. As a oitizou I liko C. O.
MoCullooh, as mayor we differ very
widely in regard to some matters of
publio policy. I would, ask Mr. Re
former" that whenovor he uses my
namo in public print to d) so over his
own signature in order that the pub
lic may know how much confidenco to
place in his statements, and whether
he is indeed a reformer, or a subject
of reform.
