X Grading he City. The proposition to vote bonds to the amount of $5,000 for the purpose of se curing money with which to grade the streets of this city, is a proposition which should receive the most thorough investigation at the hands of the voters and tax-payers. It is well enough at the start to rec ognize that Abilene has no drainage to speak of. That is a fact which we all acknowledge', and its constant repeti tion by those who sacriGce method and judgment to a desire to appear liberal and progressive, suouiu not ue .mucn to scare or undulv influence those who honestly desire to do that which is for the best interests of the city. Abilene has no more enthusiastic fnend than the Beflkctok, and its influence is ready at all times to be used to further her advancement and pro gress. Occupying this position the Re flector is yet opposed to the issue of $5,000 worth of street bonds. First, it is primarily opposed to the bonds because the amount of money they would realize is ridicu...

Of course, I make an exception to this rule in the case of old oirendcrs. Many of the latter, how ever, unconsciously betray themselves during these interviews.
