Letter From City Attorney Halligan.
Editor of tho North Platto Tribune:
Ab tho election to authorize the
mayor and city council to pay for tho
present waterworks system and to ex
tend the same with tho proceeds of tho
$100,000.00 bonds already voted to es
tablish and erect a plant in the city
will soon be held, it seemed to me
proper to state in your papor tho exact
logal status' of the water works sltu
tion, sq tho electors may vote with n
thorough understanding of tho results
of their votes, both for and against the
On November 21st, 1911, the circuit
court of appeals rendered its decision,
reversing tho decision of tho circuit
court and in effect directing that a
judgemnt be entered against tho city
for the appraised value of the plant,
It isjthorefore certain that not later
than Juno 13th, 1912, a judgment will
entered in the United States district
court against the city and in favor of
the receiver for $85,021.00.
This judgement will draw seven per
cent per annum from the dnto of its
rendition. The bonds draw interest at
tho rate of five percent.
If the proposition to authorize the
mayor and city council to use the pro
ceeds of the bonds already voted is de
feated and no other bonds voted for
the purpose of paying for the plant,
tho receiver will then, without doubt,
go into the United States court and
mandamus the mayor and city council
to levy a tax to pay this judgment
This Jtax will probably not nil be
levied in one year, but tho tnx
officers will be compelled to levy a
sufficient tax, each year to pay tho
judgment within a few years. In tho
mean time the city will not have pos
session of tho plant, as the court will
not compel the receiver to deliver tho
plant to the city until tho same is paid
for, ns the circuit court of appeals hns
recently refused to compel tho Omaha
Water Works Company to deliver tho
plant in that city to the city prior to
the payment of tho same.
During all of this time tho receiver
will doubtless make ho extension and
tho city will be unable to do so under
the condition then existing.
It is estimated by competent engin
eers that the depreciation of a water
works system is about two per cent per
annum. This depreciation will bo
going on, and no deduction will be
made for the same, notwithstanding
the fact that the city must pay tho ap
praised value'of the plant
Tho proceeds of the bonds already
voted will bo'.$100,000.00, out of which
the;, judgment, amounting to $85,021.00
will have toe paid; the remainder,
being almostii$il5,000,0Q, can be used.fon
betterments vand extensions, and the
city coupcili cani . provide for other
extensions if that amount is in
Under these circumstances it would
seem to be the exercise of good busi
nessjjudgment to authorize the city
council to use tho proceeds of tho bonds
already voted to pay for the present
plant. John J. Halligan,
