DECREASING A DEBT.

THE fiESDLT OF MATURING BONDS.
Soma Interesting Toints About Municipal
I LIST OF THE BONDED INDEBTEDNESS
The city tax levy of next year will be con
iderably relieved, and the city debt will be
essened, by the maturing next
Vpril of "the last of the fiire
lepartment loan bonds and of a large
lock of water loan bonds, the two amount!
gsrejjatinsj ?425,800, upon which interest
tud (inking fund assessments have been
eTied for the past 20 yean. "While mak
nj; np a list of the city's indebtedness yes
enlay. Controller Morrow showed the effect
f the maturing of the fiire department
onds alone would have on city finance.
The bonds were issued for $200,000 in 1873,
it the time the fire department was changed
rota a volunteer to a paid organization, for
he purpose of putting in the fire alarm tele
raph and increasing the equipment. On
be first day of April next the bonds will
ave matured. To meet them there Is in
he sinking fund for that purpose the sum
f $210,263, of which $194,000 arc invested
n securities netting the city 3 per cent in
erest. They are 7 per cent bonds, it being
ecessary at the time they were issued to
uarantee that rate on account of the bad con
ition of the city's finances, and they had a
per cent sicking fund, which required an
nnual appropriation of $10,000.
One Annual Appropriation Stopped.
Thus, by their maturing and payment an
nnual appropriation of $24,000 will be
topped. As the sinking fund already cou
sins more than is required to close up the
oan, no appropriation will be required for
t next year.
The water loan bonds, a section of, which
aature at the same time, were issued for 25
ears beginning in 1863. The last of them
,-ere put out in 1873. 'When the Brilliant
umping station and Highland reservoir
.-ere projected these bonds were issued to
uild, equip and extend the plant. In
rder to meet the bonds as they matured a 2
er cent sinking fund was provided, and in
rder to float them on the market a 7 per
ent interest guarantee was necessary.
Tiese bonds are the only portion of the city
ebt that will mature during the next six
ears, excepting the fire loan mentioned
Dove. The bonds fall due as follows: In
893, $125,800; in 1894, $242,500; in 1895,
243,200; 1896, $1,132,500; 1897, $40,500; 1893,
2,398,000. This will wipe out the water
Jan, and no other city bonds will mature
fter 1898 until 1904.
V4 Iplns Oat the City Debt.
AJthouch only a 2 per cent sinking fund
as ( provided for this loan, prior to 1880
ren ' a portion oi this small fund was taken
T i lumcipal expenses, and at one time it
as nearly depleted. In 1881, however,
hei l Controller Morrow assumed the office
r 1 is first term, he laid down his policy of
ipi ng out the city debt as quickly as pos
blj , and compelled the Finance Committee
i ajpandon the irreyjlar way of handling
leffvarious sinking funds that had been in
33fae, and to prepare to meet the obliga
orfis of the municipality as they came due.
M accordingly they began returning to the
fter loin lund the money that had been
i verted into other channels, and by the in
estment oi the moneys in it in good securi
les and compounding" the interest it aggre-
'td at the close of the last fiscal year
166,541 3d. OI this amount $1,466,033 is
vested in securities, netting the city 3
er cent per annum.
Although a large portion of the city's
onds are out at 7 per cent interest the
verage rate is only 5.5021 percent A
eneral statement Of the bonded debt and
ate ot interest shows $4,088,097 97 out at
per cent, $3,501,5)03 90 at 5 per cent, $510,
00 at 6 per cent and $5,104,500 at 7 per
ent; total, $13,204,401 87.
Vt ben the Bonds Fait Dae.
In addition to the fire and water loan
onds already mentioned the other city
onds mature as follows: Registered muni
ipal consolidated 6 per cents, $210,000,
aature in 1904. Water loan registered 6
er cents, $300,000, mature in 1908. Im
irovement 4 per cents, $3,734,700,
nature in 1915. Railroad script
and 5 per cents, $50,187, bonds due on
tresentation. Funded debt 7 per cents,
500,000, mature in 1909. Refunded JTifth
Vvenue Market House 5 per cents, $25,000;
efunded City Building 5 per cents, $170,
00; total, $195,000, mature in 1910.
unded debt 7 per cents, $121,000; funded
lebt improvement 5 per cents, $77,000;
otal, $198,000, mature in 1912.
In 1913 tnere will mature $3,582,700 of
he city's indebtedness, of which $1,403,000
rill be funded debt improvement bonds,
353,300 railroad compromise 4 per cents
nd $1,826,400 railroad compromise 5 per
ents. This completes the list of the city's
Already a number of men prominent
n the city's financial conduct are discussing
he necessity oi a big issue of bonds to carry
orward street improvements, to build free
ridges to the Southside and to complete
he proposed purchases and embellishment
'f public parks.
Oprofd to Issning More Ponds.
The conservative element in city af
airs, among whom might be mentioned
Controller Morrow and C. L. Magce, are
pposed to any further issue ot bonds
intil the present debt is practically wiped
ut They argue that a comparatively
mall annual millage will make all the im
irovements necessary until such a time that
he debt is reduced so that the payment of
nterest thereon will be a trifle. After that
hey say there will be no necessity for
onds, as the citv's taxable valuation will
ave so increased that even a smaller mill
ige than that of 1892 will pay all running
xpenses of the municipality and allow ample
cope for improvements. Besides, they
jgue, there is a possibility in the meau
ime of an emergency arising that will com
el an issue of bond', and a big one, and if
he debt is increased unnecessarily such a
ontingency would plunge the city so
leeply into the slough that extrication
vould be almost impossible.
Making tbe City Free or Debt.
If the conservative element is able to
lold down, the debt will in 23 years be re
luced to comparatively nothing, as within
hat time the largest of the city's obliga
ions fall due. But, according to those ac
juainted with the subject, there will be
leceisity for very careiul handling of mu
licipal finances in order to meet
he various loans as they ma
il re. Controller Morrow says that
or a couple of years the water loan sinking
und will, as at present invested, yield
lufficient, with the annual appropriations,
o meet the maturing bonds, but after that
t will require sharp financiering to keep it
in. It is his earnest desire to continue in
lie Controller's office four years longer,
is in that time he feels satisfied
le can accomplish his life's work
Provide beyond a doubt for clearing off the
sity's debt. He takes great satisfaction
ut of the fact that when he first became
Controller this city's bonds were a drug on
he market, and that now those of no city
in the country are in much greater demand,
dthough municipal bonds in general are
:he favorite marketable securities.

The inqueBt in the case of Joseph Brand)
who was stabbed in a row on the Southside
"Wednesday night by George Strasser, was
held yesterday afternoon by Coroner Mc
Dowell. The defendant was committed to
jail to answer the charge of murder. There
were qnite a number of witnesses examined,
but the testimony was badly mixed. The
fight on "Wednesday night seems to have
been partially the result of some old feuds
among a lot of German families in the
It was evident at least that the majority
of the witnesses were prejudiced against
Brandl, the dead man. No two of them
told a similar story, although all of them
admitted being in the vicinity of the fight.
Nearly all of them swore that Strasser had
no weapons at all.
Alderman Bleichner was the first witness.
He simply presented the ante-mortem state
ment taken from Brandl before he died. It
only contained a dozen words and read as
Mr. Georce Strasser came out and cut me.
We had no words. His

Witness as to mark,
G. J. Bleichner, Alderman.
Dr. J. D. Thomas, who conducted the
post mortem, gave the causes of death and
described the half dozen knife wounds he
found on the dead man's body. The one
which caused death was in the abdomen.
The knifehad penetrated the kidney. Death
resulted irom the loss of blood and shock.
Dr. George P. Itossraan corroborated the
testimony of Dr. Thomas.
Superintendet C H. Hertzog, ot the
Southside Hospital, stated that Brandl had
been taken to the hospital at 11 o'clock
"Wednesday night and died yesterday morn
ing at 8:15."
Quite a number of witnesses were then
called, includingMrs. Annie Strattenberger,
the woman with whom Brandl boarded, El
lenora Bredle, Strasser's girl, who had been
with him to the 'Squire's office, where
Brandl had been sued for a board bill;
Frank Strattenberger, Caroline Frauens
berger, Henry "Wenzel, Mathias Barthel,
George Strattenberger and John Brandl,
a Drotner oi tne aeienaant.
The testimony, while very much mixed,
seemed to show that on the war home from
Alderman Beinhauer's office the crowd had
divided into two sections. "When Mrs.
Strasser and her daughter passed Brandl's
boarding house, going np Holt street,
Brandl was sitting in the yard. Some
words passed between them, and Brandl ran
out and attacked Mrs. Strasser. She called
for help and her son ran down the street.
The two men came together and Brandl was
The jury returned the following verdict
and Strasser was committed accordingly:

"W. G. Guiler, who was attorney for
Colonel Stewart in the Congressional con
test in which he was unseated, and a lead

Monongahela House. He says Colonel
Stewart has announced himself as a candi

"The disposition of our people," Mr.
Guiler said, "is to elect Colonel Stewart to
fill the unexpired term just as a vindica

in the district seem to be possessed of the
same disposition, and it now looks as
though Stewart would be chosen without
opposition in his own party. Xhey all
