A SUOOESTIOV IN ItEPEKBNCn TO TIE
Scjtn- Question. Tho miiuudontandlng
between tbe gas company nml tbo city
council has caused as much rojrct on the
part of tbo citlzons as Indignation. Not
a few applaud tho courao nf tbe council,
because thoy believe Mr. Gerould hat
acted In a discourteous manner and has
made unressonablo domands. Mr. Ger
ould, on his part claims that he has dono
all ho was authorized te do by tbn com
pany, and has made tho proportions ho
has sent to the council under direction of
Its executive commltttee, Wo bollevo
Mr. Gorould has acted as be says he has,
and that the gas company bad sotno rea
son to boliuve It would be justified lu de
manding a hicbor price thh yor for
lighting thu city than it obuinod last
year. Last year tho company was paid
I interest-bearing scrip. Tbo council
ropealsd the ordinance putting intercbt on
scrip. Tho gas company nl
once lumped to th conclusion that tho
now iisuo of sorip would not bi as value
ablo as the old); that tbo pries of icrip
would run down groatty, and Hut there
fore the city ought to glvo tho company
moro of the non-lntere't bearing than it
bad askol to receive of tho interest bear
Ing scrip. Wo bellove tbero was no good
ground for this demand. The new scrip
although it bears no Interest, t111 ,urelv
beniore valuublu than tbu lutorcit-bcar-
log, if tbe council and city officers do
tbelr duty. A certain sum has been im
propriated to pay far gas during tbo cur,
rent fiscal year. That fund when railed
cannot be uied for any otbr purpoio than
to pay for uus used this your. No
order inued to pay for gas
uied lait year van bj ihU out of this
fund i and the collector cunnot, wheu ho
is collecting taxes, recjlvu in payment of
tho tax levied to pay tbU fund scrip bore
toforo inuod for other purposes. lie muit
collect tbe inonev, and tins money can
bo used for no other purpose than tho spo
ciflc purpoio for which it was collected
Wokiowithas beon tba practice to re.
coive in payment ol taxes city scrip, but
tho collector must reeeivo icrip at hi,
peril) and tbo treasurer will, at his peril,
pay out any of tbe money received to pav
for gas burned during thu present (Weal
year in cashing ordure iisuod
to pay for gas burned lu uny
fernior year. Each fund in tho city
treasury mutt bu kspt sscred for tho pur.
poio for which II wai collected, If this is
true, and vo are mro It is n correct po
sition, the gas compauy will, jtfter tho
taxes havo keen collected, receive cmh
for all tbe gss It will furnlih upon thu
order of tbe city council. Wo suggest to
Geroula that he ponder over thorn sug.
gestlons and drop a cent or two on tlm
