WEDNESDAY, DEC. 31, 1902.
At tho next regular mooting of thc
City Council, which will tho on tho
6th of January, the matter of issuing
bonds for street improvements will bc
discussed. The square and atrcots of
Anderson were never in such a deplo
rable condition, and Mayor Sullivau,
with many others, is of the opinion
that a moro opportuno timo to mako
permanent street improvements will
No work can bc done, of course, be
fore Spring. Indcod, there aro many
preliminary matters to bc disposod of
before the question can be submitted
to thc people to vote upon. Ono of
these questions ia the ridding the city
of thc obligation resting upon it as
thc result of voting upon tho city,
January bth, 1S'J8, bonds, in escrow,
to thc amount of $50,000 in aiding
thc Boone Black Diamond Railroad
So long as thoso bonds romain as a
contingent obligation on the city, tho
present bonded indebtedness can bo
enlarged very little, as tho constitu
tional limit has already been very
nearly roached. There should bo no
trouble in annulling tho Blaok Dia
mond bonds. No one doubts for a
moment that the scheme of building
this road has been abandoned. It is
true that the ordinanoe providing for
the submitting of tho question to the
people fixed no limit as to when this
road should reach Anderson, nor when
tho obligation of the oity should cease,
neither was such a limit incorporated
in the question voted upon, but REA
SONABLE time has elapsed, and every
thing goes to show that not only has
the Boheme been abandoned, but it
was a "fake" from the beginning.
It may be necessary to appeal to the
Legislature for relief, but relief oan
be had and should be had. Being rid
of this apparent obligation, in its
present nature, it might bo altogether
agreeable to the people to apply this
$50,000 to permanent street improve
ments, or so much of it as may be
The Legislature meets tho 13th of
January, and it is quite proper for tho
Council to take up this subject at
their next meeting. To get rid of
these bonds, secure the necessary pe
tition of freeholders, give notice of
election, dispose of the bonds, order
and reoeive the paving material, all
.ken time, and if it be the wish of
the people to have these improvements
made, no tims should be lost in
making a beginning.

The United States Government hr.d

December 1. On that day the Post

Tho compulsory education law in
Indiana, working at a nominal oost,

$1.81 a child. In eighteen counties
during the last year the officers suc
ceeded in hringiug the children iuto
