Walker publishes an anonymous letter and his reply to same. Mr. "Walker is convinced that he knows the author of the letter. We have no idea who wrote it, and with that explanation proceed to make a few comments. Some time ago we commented upon the manner in which the park was being taken care of, or rather the fact that the adminis tration complained of the expense. Really, our object then was to re lieve the board of the expense and trouble by private, subscription and management. We did feel, however, that there was too much complaint about the cost of main tenance. But since studying the matter a little more wo have about reached the conclusion that it would bo a great deal better io make it a private enterprise than to compel the taxpayers to keep it up. There are a great many people in Union City who are not able to pay a heavy tax, and they should not be compelled to pay for luxuries. This condition is more apparent in Union City than in many other towns. , Many of our people, who, when they have paid for the necessities of city government, have already reached beyond their ability, and it is a hardship to ask them for more. But while we are making these remarks or suggestions emphasis should be laid on the fact that the park should get the best of care, and it should be done at the ex pense of the citizens of Union City. The grass should be trimmed, the grounds kept perfectly clean of leaves and paper, the fl o w e r s watered and everything done to keep it neat and attractive. Hat it should be done by private sub scription and management. More than thin, a new fence, an iron fence something like the one built lately along the track near , the Union Station, ' should be built. We do; not advise this expense now. But a change should be made next year and the park Ask us for nrlces. when sellino vour orain. ::4 i it i...L ejjiiii, ttuu xruui tuese came ioi iu nis genius, warneld is bred in Gentlemen, we can't buy more tnis 6chooL His eniu, wa8 im. i;'' ;; ' W ;;;;;;.: tnan wo can pay ror ana we can t Pianted by his forefathers, and all pay for more than we are getting! thi3 contributes to the secret of Do you seriously think the city is hig success. able to make an outlay of several hundred dollars cutting the weeds "All the railroads in the country and sowing the waste places' in would be mine if I could get con- grass?
