cate the best possible city govern ment at the least possible cost and the remnantsof former administra tions who apparently want to hang on to every possible expense that I Il orindirect The Sun Is a friend of the people and has always been Here at the bagjnning of the year the mayor rec ommended Improvements that would have completely absorbed u tax rate had It been possible to have one and In another breath expressed the belief that the already outrageous tax rate could bo reduced to 161i Then when the present boards at tempted to reduce expenses andglvc the people what they pay for Instead of requiring them to pay for a good many things they do notgeU they are met with opposition anti niiBrep retentatlon on every hand They attempt to cut down the ap propriation for the pollqc department and the first thing they know they find a bill Introduced In the legisla ture requiring second glass gltlea tq have not less than thirty patrolmen whether they need them or not The object of this bill Is plain as It was Introduced bytho Democratic representative from paducah and as alt the other second class cities al- ready have more than thirty patrol men It Is understood 4t Is not known who Inspired this wonderful piece of legislation us whoever did will probably not hasten to acknowl edge the corn but Its pnly bject Is to add to the burden of JPaduach tax 3 payers The new boards whose only object as good business men Is to Insure the people annual benefits com mensurate with the amount of money they pay attempt to give the people better street lights at leHscQst and they find themselves confronter with obstacles on every hand including those put In their way by tljn rem nants of the aforesaid administra t lion The Joint light committee hirl gard to the light questIon desires to getithe liestlights at the lowest costJ Jt has announced Its Intention ot doing Jiothlng until It has thoroughly Investigated the ques don from every standpoint and It Is trying to do this now If It acts one way or the other It will bo able tp show by facts and figures that cannot be disputed why ithas asVd and that it has acted for the best In terests of the people It was suggested a few nights ago that the committee go over the city books and find out exactly what the cost of operating the light plant has been for several years and the mayor tslmpl t J olio 1 having Third the city Is taking care of quite a number of broken down politicians and other friends of pits adrulnlstraj rtionbgnd anyptfortltd lop of this gratt ils not thankfully hctlvexl expenses and

people on the municipal questions before boards shows that the Sun has been right and Is right now and also dem- onstrates who arc the real friends of the people The city now needs rctrcnchpicnt more than ever as the decision of the court of appeals yesterday Iin the bank tax cases will deprive the city revenue that had of considerable been equated on this year It also means that In the future the city can get practically nothing from the thanks if the latter desire to Invest their capital and surplus in government securities which they are sure to do In some cases and which would mean further curtailment of expenses to meet annual expenses The Sun regrets that some officials and people no doubt through preju- dice and partisanship take the stand they do against reform and retrench Tent and try to checkmate our lo cal legislative boards In every good The conscientious move they make public Is not going to be fooled long It finally got on to some however of the crowd nndsls sure to get on to them all sooner or later An earnest cfloit to Improve local condi tions is worthy of everyones com mendation and cooperation regard less of politics or anything else and those who are trying to

the action although time city brought the suit with the double Intention of testing the ordinance and collecting the bond for tho alleged violation ot the ordinance Jones ran a saloon In the city and hli bartender one Sunday sold liquor without the knowledge or consent of the proprietor Jones was arraigned In police court anti his bartender tined for the offense The City brought suit to compel thin bondsmen to pay the bond given to Insure that Jones wouldkeep within the limits of thelawThe court holds that time bonds men could not be held responsible In this particular case because the plainly evidence showed that the man whose surety they were was not aware that his bartender had goods on Sunday and repudiated the act Under the evidence tho court could not find for the plaintiff Judge Reed stated that lie thought time ordinance compelling a forfeiture of bond In event of a violation of the Sunday closing law valid but had his doubt about it As It was not up to him In this
