Ildltor San Antonio Light, Tho City Council, at It last regular meeting, appointed a committee- of three Interested Aldcnncn to sit In Judgment on themselves, nnd they have been try ing their limit!, nnd getting Interested witnesses to gl vo evidence In their favor, and so fnr tho whole all'alr has proved n failure. These gentlemen propose to keep back all plans nnd specifications, together with the contract. Tho very parties who wish to sea Justice done refuse to go hear these, frauds. The old maxim still holds good "Showin tho company you keep and then I'll tell you what you are." If theso Aldermen kave fully mado up tliclr.mlnils not to allow practical disinterested persons to go Into this mat ter tho only thing Is to wnlt two weeks and ask our new Council to sec to It, and other frauds will open up during the interval. Tho so called guardians of citizens' Interests have had truthful In formation given to them and still refuse tq publish facts. Contractors who put lu bids have already given theso Inter ested parties' to understand that on tho tin alone Is a fraud of $W, and tills Is only a lien bite. Hut why tell anything; our tax (layers paid $0i"i for plans and Bpcclllcatlons which In no particular are carried out. The American citizen knows what Is said here Is true and hopes to hurst this ring Into match wood on the llrst Mon day In April. It Is evident to nil that these frauds will nnd must he exposed shortly. Our present city contracts amount to some $72,IKXI and tax payers are going to get the benellt of paying, or, In other words, the tax payers will have the ex perience and this ring the dollars. Cannot Voter or Citizen, or some other person speak out? If these charges are false say so and we will make both Citizen and Voter quit this game of throwing dirt nt others ; hut If true, let Justice ho done though the heavens limy fall. Thero is an old Dutch maxim, "Do what you ought, happen what may." Citizkx No. 2. Laredo, March 1, 181, DEFECTIVE' SURVEYING. A Correspondent Throws Some Light on tho Subject, With a Remedy. ndltorSan Antonio Light: Formerly tho surveyor's chain, ns com pared to tho truo length In feet nnd Inches (20 years ago), had In tho Wvaras stretch from two to thrco Inches more length, whllo tho present patent steel chain, or steel tape lines have their ac curate II) varas (27 feet 0 1-3 Inches). It follows that tho greatest chain measure does not reach tho boundaries, corners, or marks of old Burvcys. The shorter a surveyor's chain Is, nnd running It Into hollows, ravines, around and over bushes, the lesser ncrca and varas aro obtained. To make It still more clear a former survey of 100 acres will lose under tho patent chain measure, running Bhortcr, cutting off 1-20, more or less, as tho case may be, contained In an average of only 05 varas. It had been bought, acquired nnd taxed for 100 acres. Xow, to whom, In fact, nre suoh cut off surplus to belong? Xot to the Stnte, if In tho country; not to the city, If In town, because theso governments sold it, or granted theso lands away; neither to the surveyor, for such acts would criminate his honesty. Hut, ns a sur veyor acknowledged, that "they call for corner," meaning thnt they throw this surplus to tho next survey. Then It must happen, If tho next area of land Is large, thnt It will grow, by' this sur plus added all uround, larger. To provent such a monopoly In na ture's gift, which gift belongs to actual settlers, I suggest that tho surveyors' ohaln bo made 70 Inches longer per vara; that makes the 10 vara chain 27 feet 11 Inches, nnd twice that fora 20 vara chain 03 feet 10 Inches. Hut In counting and Burning up tho standard vara of 33 1-3 Indies Is'used nnd attained as the old surveyors havo done. This proposition, or Blmllnr chain lengthening, would set tle many land disputes peaceably. KiiKiscim.
