NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY
SOME MORE OF MAXCY'S GRAFT.
That the city of Altaic lost big
money by presenting a job to -I.
W Maxcy on a silver platter,
according to his own plans and
specifications, without a bond
worth a tinker's damn, has beeu
abundantly proven recently by
some revelations as to the manner
in which he grafted the city. Max-
ty was practically presented with
the proceeds of the entire bond is-
sue with the injunction to "go
ahead, buy your material, spend
the money as you think best, and
give us as good a job as yon can,"'
and there was no one placed over
him to watch him and protect the
interests of the taxpayers, or to
see that the city got anything for
the coin expended. And Maxcy
did a splendid job of spending, too
—in Maxcy's interest. Is it any
wonder that he grafted, with iu-
atructions like that? And as an
evidence of the interest he took in
giving the city a good job let us
proceed to the lower end of the
jewer main, just north of the sep-
tic tank, and see what he did
Running oat of the sewer tiling
j specified, he substituted 300 feet
of the worthless 14-inch wooden
I "bee-gums'' which form the seven
; mile ttow-line north of town, and
I socked them into the ground in-
stead of the sewer pipe. This is
just about as mean and contempt-
[ ible a steal as Maxcy could have
perpetrated; a piece of work which
! he well knew was absolutely worth-
j less, and which will cost the city
siderable money to replace:
j but it is right in line with the way
J he did all his work. Just now
Mayor Kirby and the present coun-
cil are trying to remedy the dain-
jage. and the only possible remedy
I is to take up the worthless wooden
pipe and replace it with sewer til-
j ing. Sewage won't pass through
! the wooden pipe any more than
! water, and if you have any doubts
i a* to the general feeling of the peo-
! pie who live in the neighborhood
! of this stretch of wood pipe, just
j go down there and stand around
awhile. Better take a bottle of
|smelling salts along: you'll sure
need em. Maxcv will do well to
stay away from Altus. If he ever
comes back here he's liable to lie
mobbed and strung up by an in-
dignant, outraged citizenship.
Jackson county has been having
another siege of hot winds, Sunday
and Monday being excessively hot.
A second season of hot winds,
such as we experienced in the early
part of June, will do untold damage
to the crops, and every one is
hoping that the present heat is
only temporary. We have bad
such splendid rains, and the crops
are in such fine shape, that it
would indeed be a serious blow to
have it all knocked in the head.
However, we hope for the best.
