Mrs. James W. Smith has been vis
iting relatives in Columbus, since
(Continued from First Page)
have scarcely exceeded 310,000 annu
ally. We have been compelled to
conduct a $10,000 business on an income
of $10,000. This is why the village Is
in debt, and why a bond issue is neces
sary. Next year, thanks to an In
creased tax duplicate, we will receive
about $12,500, which with the mlscel
laneous Income may be raised to
$13,500, but If we are obliged to pay
the light company $5160 of this, we
will have remaining but $8340 to pay
olllcers and employes, repair streets,
keep up the fire department and meet
the thousand and one lesser obllgatiocs
which the village exchequer Is con
stantly burdened with.
If Mr. Beecher and his company can
figure.out how we can make ends meet
under these conditions, we will extend
to them a vote of thanks at our next
meeting. We concede that the prob
lem Is too deep for us.
Another error is the mixing up of
the sinking fund with the ordinery
revenues. This is a separate and dis
tinct fund, provided for by law, and
is available only for the payment of
waterworks and other bonds When
the light company says that we have
$21,000 or $22,000 to conduct the village
all airs, it makes a mistake.
Again the light people say in sub
stance that the bond election was
called for the purpose of ' clouding the
issue." This is wrong. Whether the
light ordinanoe carries or not, a light
ing contract must and will be made(
and money will be needed for this 'pur
pose as well as for cleaning up the
presentdebt of the village. The initia
tive election will cost the village
something like $200, so why not save
the expense of the bond election by
fixing It on the same date?
In brief the arguments are so full of
misstatements as to destroy all their
intended effect, and merely resolve
themselves into an appeal to the people
to loosen the purse-strings of the vil
lage in behalf of Mr. Beecher and his
Much has been said about the incon
venience and danger of dark streets
and of petty crimes being committed,
which the light people urge as a reason
for supporting their light proposition.
Such talk is ridiculous. Accidents
occurred on the streets when they
were lighted, and as for crime the
town was never quieter, the few in
stances of mischief not being out of
the ordinary and traced by the police
to the work of small boys. Indeed,
owing to the dimness of the old lights,
the transition from light to darkness
has bnen scarcely noticible.
Notwithstanding this, Hillsboro
should have lighted streets. If we
haven't the money we must endeavor
to get It by a bond issue or other legal
means, and this council realizes the
necessity for taking action in the mat.
ter. We feel, however, that the light
company's demand is unreasonable,
the price, $5160 per year, is exorbi
tant and the term of the ordinance
too long. The kind of light offered
is not worth near the sum asked,
but if the light company will materi
ally decrease the term of years and
the annual price, the council will give
it a franchise without putting the
question up to the voters. We will pay
a fair renumeration for what we get,
but we cannot grant a pension to the
The people have been very patient
They want light, but they have, we
think, sufficient faith in the olllcers
elected by them for this purpose, and
we do not believe they will arbitrarily
vote the public money away, when the
defeat of this measure means that
they will get what they v. ant Just the
same, only much cheaper.
The proposed ordinance contains no
provision for a bond to insure its ful
fillment. It is too extended in time,
is defective In several particulars and
one sided in its terms. It was drawn
by the light people themselves without
any opportunity for council to Inter
pose conditions, and must necessarily
be partial to private interest. A vote
for this ordinance will help to bind
the tax-payers to an unreasonable and
unfair obligation continuing for ten
years. On the other hand, a vote
against It does not mean continued
darkness, as Mr. Beecher and his com
pany would have you believe.

Demonstration of Nitrogen Lamps
The Light & Fuel Co. has been giv
ing a demonstration of nitrogen lamps
on W. Main street this week. These
lamps are the same as called for in
the proposed ordinance which will be
voted on Tuesday. The lamps at the
corner of Short and Main and West
and Main streets are the type to be
used in the business section. The one
at the B. & O. Depot is the smallest
lamp called for and the ones at Elm
and Main and in front of S. P Scott's
residence are the second size. The
lamps give an excellent light, well
distributed, and support the conten
tions made for them by the Light Co.
