Shepherd, of the Board of Public Works, is pnbttshed: E ttor of tk' A'tc T? k Tribune Sir: Since niy brief and somewhat hast v state ment O. the financial condition or this I?i*trirt, so far a* the iioartl of Public Works is concern ed, vonr columns heve been open and free'y nwdby otir opiionents in criticism and abuse. I do not com)?lain ?. this. It i* natural that ptople who. tor halt a century, have seen their property slowly increfe-ttig lit value w.thort the burdens of taxation necessary to its public im provement, to complain on finding that proper ty as>t>sfd. And tlMr. one cannot blame poor fellows who, (#m')r!aMT sheltered all toe r uselets lives in nse e*a offices, growl ai fi'idi lg themselves forced to work for a living. A^aiti, it is the right and duty of every male Amenesn citizen of the ape cf twenty-one to accuse ol ficia' agents of inenpac. v and dishonest p. ae Cees.and to fa? .Irate this the press is at the tsrviceof any one, rega~dless of character or re;ponsib''ity. and men find indojscment in pr'nt who cannot be shaded with a horsewhip or reached by a libel suit. This, however, is necessary to republican institutions. I suppose, and however disagreeable to the agent has to be boire with. It ?, however, somcwha' irritating to find our niiinii-ipa'ity called to account by a man who owes his portion to a combination so corrupt tn .i it Las to have defenders, and wh.i, ' ?lilerepresenting the worst element* of Sew \ < ik. claims to be the puiest of the pnie in Washington. Bnt a?ain. it is natural that l4PO|i1e tnooM <1ouM that Wajtliin^ton poMk*. a better government than :h;.t of any other city in the t nited States, and it is a little presump tuous in us to claim that we a-e an exception to a very u:il.appy rule. It is not, however, to sayall this that 1 write i0,,i.a^w' Tbe con,nieiits, cr ticisms a?d at. tacks have not been re*oonded to before this trow the Uft that to condense a newspaper article complicatedoptrittm involving mi'! ions ot m-?nev is somewhat difficult.
