The question nf consolidation wa the absorbing theme list spring, and we were promised In New Town that if we would vote for it, and work for it, that, not only the jail and court Uvu - e. but that all the public buildings .that were to be established In Springfield in the future, would be centrally located. and that, as one united citv of twenty ; ive thousand people, W WOU'.d rapidlV grow, and soon be the second city in tho state; that we would have no more rivalry between Old and Xew Towv We were told that in consideration of us Toting for eonolid.vion thai Old Town had agreed to this. At fir - 4 we objected to it, and among onr reasons was, that we would lee our posto ff.ee, but we were toid that there would be ao chanpe in that matter, and perhaps there will not be. Our public speakers oa the North Side Slid publicly, that we had everything to gain and nothing to Jose by cousurtdation: that Oid Town wa "tired of local strife and wanted a rest. We. hesitated iu the matter, for the Hob, J. U, IVung told tts - pub'y and privately, thai it would not do; that it was the worst tf lng that New Town could do. but e did not believe hint. We thought he was a politician and hail some end to subserve, subserve, or that be had some private pique at some one about the square in j Oid Town. Hot we tind now, after it is too late to make amends tost j the colonel was right. He told us be knew those id I 4Sih fellows around the square woukl hacg oa to rvrythir.g they have ia old town, and pobi'.e everything we have over here, il we did bot go slew. And alas! alas! when it was too late to uke the Colonel s advice, we see that it is just exactly as the Cukws'l presiicteJ. Why, sir, about two months ago, after after we had raised aSjut fiftjea thousand thousand dollars as a d&ration to aid ia securing securing an opera hone. to be baih near the epic mills oa Bonaville street, a howl went np from the oid mo backs around - th public square, such as would have disturbed the saioU in pur - ratorv. TVs mi i "W will have an opera house near the square." A tb - scriptioo paper was started at a mass meeting, held ia the Board of Trade building, and it was astonishing how some of the old tigbt - nsted fellows that Colonel Doling bad warned ui about. subscribed. - Mon who cer. ex pa to operas, and who would not go if one was bciit on the next block to them, subscribed from two hundred and fifrv to one thousand ' dollars. The result wa as onr lot was a little too snort tor our ou:.a.r:, ana as it was not pract. vu in nua buildinz, we thought w h ! htt !rt t ap aliitie: so. as we were running the risk of losing all we were puttier in our house, provided those old "tieht - fists" went oa with theirs, to r.ioli.'r thinrs a utue we abandoned: the spice nuiis lot and went down into old town and hnn.'ht a lot. and we are eainv to tmild an opera hoc there, - and don t son forget it." Whatnrrt? Aft - r we wer t to o onaerstooa as sarins " promised and it was peoerallT DBdr - t standard of individual attainments stood that the jail and court boose were j of the court is not hijfh. Their legal to go on Cenu - r street, and that the leaminjr and judicial experiencea are. Uoffc lot on thecorner of Kbbers..n av - I beliere. in most instance, greater to - m and Center street bad hem bomrht d.iT than rer before in the history of for that purpose, another bowl more hideous than the former one has been raised by th old town croakers. IVy offer a lot over there free, and threaten to enjoin the conutT einrt. so I have bees told, and flop or d' lay theni in carryiog out an enterprise that we were led to Ivlierc was fixed and settled in the election of our present county court and sealed by consolidation. And, sir, since the reading of th.it opinion to the county court in that private room, the treasurer's office, writu n by Blackstone junior, wc have been made to stand np and takecours.gr. If this is progres I don't want any more of it in mine. I wish I had takes the colonel's advice. What has become of tLe boom that consolidation was to bring? We was told by real estate dealers to vote for consolidation and they could sell our property for us at advanced figures. We were advised to boy property on Boonvilie and Campbell streets and on Kobuerson avenue as near t enter as possible and that if consolidation carried we could sell in ten days and double our money, but oh! where are the buyers? buyers? Where is that car wheel manufacturing manufacturing company that Capt. Davis talked about so glibly, that was going to rent or build two hundred bouses for oerstives to occupy, provided consolidation consolidation carried? Alas! it too, like the other phsntoms has gone pllnimTiDg. In a word where are the good fruits of consolidation that were to accrue to new town by being tied on to that old poky community nround the public square? By tne way, has Horace Lhi - mars returned from tsaratoga and Niagara Niagara Falls? Why, aonie of our old standhys bsve gone back on us. Parties owning large IricU of land northwest of the woolen mills are no longer loyal to ("enter and Boonvilie streets, but want the Jail awsy ovpron Campbe ll or Main streets. And I hear that some members of the countj court are getting a little shaky and arc not like to pan out as far north as was promised. I had no idea that th old niossbacks were as sensitive as they seem to be about that .sacred .sacred old spot "the public square.'' I was astonished at the recital of your correspondent. Old Mossback, in regard to the trials and tribulations through whiclit hey had gone in trying to save old town from drying up after the location location of the depot at new town. Your correspondent seems to cast very serious reflections npon snrne of our citizens for their efforts in securing the depot at its present location. But they were simply looklug out for their own interests. interests. They took time by the forelock, and offered inducements to the railroad company whil you old, poky fellows were asleep. The inducements were accepted, and those, men made fortunes, fortunes, and so did the railroad company, company, and that is wka is th matter with you fellows. Von old chaps don't know the potentiality of what ia called boodle," but yoa will havw it to learn if you aope with our old boy ha - boys. Your correspondent very pathetically refers to those who followed th stars and bars and never got back. I am aorrr for them. too,bahe demonstrates what a "modern schemer" can do when surrounded by a sleepy old set, such a' lived In Springfield at that time. Did Mossback acknowledge on thing that is true, and that is that new town forced them to build the Metropolitan Metropolitan hotel, th opera house, wagon fe Mory. cotton factory and store houses, and that their merchants were forced through fear to build those tine blocks of brick hoasea that he admire so much, and ther is no queatioa but that ,1.. t f ,1.
