Several of our citizens, or those of whom would be most lilt pIv tn n id in n mnv tmnt in aViaI- ish, appeared to be as ignorant up- ou the subject as The Chromclb reporter who sought the informa- tion. It is stated, however, by those who pretend to be iuformed on the actions of the solons, that this voluntary procedure by Mr. Bowers, who is a Republican, waa opposed the measure abolishing the charter of Lexington. In this mat- ter Mr. Johnsouius insisted upon referring the matter to the people of Lexington before killing the bill as Mr. Lancaster persistently at- tempted to do. And if this bo r . correct that the introduction of the bm to abolijjh Camde'n.s eliar. t ig meaut as & fli at M John- jfion;n itia noSsible fttul mi;to like- ly that Mr. Johnsonius will repu diate Mr. Bowers' measure and bo assisted by Democratic members in preventing its passage, thus in suring another two years of incor poration. Of course, this is merely speculation, but Mr. Bower's action is liable to start the ball rolling aud the progress of the bill and the movements of our citizens will be watched with eager interest.
