It is desired by some of our citiz ns to
lave an artesian well in the street in front

owing well on the main thoroughfare,
rould be a permanent mpaovement
nd a great convenience, but
he council owe money, and we fear tLey
.all not feel justified in making any ex- a
enditures other than those actually ne
essary. The income of this town is not f
uore than sufficient to pay the running
xpenses, and until the power is given to
nerease the property aesessment and the
