East Birmingham Wharf.
• Masses. Eorrons: I have seen with
surprise the apathy manifested by the
tax payers of East Birmingham at the
Bill recently.introduced by Mr. Joseph
Waltod,of the Mouse of Representatives,
for the making of a public wharf along
the whole river front of their borough.—

and that is far back from the river,'and
I vigorously object to being tax ed as
heavily as I chili necessarily be in der

transaction has been studiously kept back

parties, who have been Circulating poll.
dons to the Legislature for the passage
of this bill. Lot Me show now, plainly,
what I mean. The river share or East
Birmingham extends about 4,500 feet. It
Is entirely occupied by manufgalturing
sites, either abtually or in provpti±C,and
upon these the great: prosperityilot-the
borough depends. It Is almost=-I may
coy entirely impossible, for the large
manufacturing establishments to carry
nn their business without the right to
fill out their river fronts with the debris
from their mills. Recognising this right
-and its importance, the • charter of the
borough provides that manufacturers
melting lota fronting on the river shall
have the right to occupy down to low,
water mark; provided the ve the pub
lic a right of way along t hendler front.
On the faith of thill chartered right man-1
ufacturing sites have been purchased at
large prices, and expensive improve-1
meets erected. The immediate effect of
this wharf bill, if passed, will be to
divest and destroy this right. But, of
course, it must be paid for. We still
have enough law in this land to prevent
the public from taking private property
without paying for it. Now, pattingont
of view the Injustice of depriving these
lot owners of what they have bought and
paid for, in the faith of this chartered
right, the passage of this bill will at once
saddle the borough with the immense
debt representing the damages done to
the owners of the entire ,river front,
by turning their property Into a public
wharf, and cad tionel simply to enable
some enterprising wharf master to col
lect a little toll from the coal boats which
lie opposite in the pool. and tie tip to
shore while waiting a rise in the river.
It will be too late for the tax payers, after
the bill to once passed and the nalecittef
is ascertained, then to deplore their folly
and reproach their deceivers. The act s
,when passed, not only wilt serve to drive
away all large manufacturing establish

earnestly, and as I think sincerely, that
