THE BONDING OF THE CITY.
LABOB TAXPAYERS IN FAVOR
Conditional, However, on Heveral
Things and Knpeclally Kconoiu-
leal Exoendllure of the Money
The question of street improvements
and of bonding for them is quite nn im
portant one with the city's finances in
their present condition. The mutter wus
discussed at some lemjth by the Lyceum
at its meeting, laHt Weiltiesiliiy iiiKlit.nml
hus created considerable interest among
the taxpayers ol the city, a large number
of whom arc apparently in favor of in
creasing the bonded debt of the city for
the purpose of improving thecondiiioiiol
the streets, while others are ol the opin
ion that the icoplc arc taxed enough a
it is. Many of the streets are certainly
in a most wretched condition and ncco
attention at once. Some of the most
prominent business men of the city have
been seen bv Tins Otizk.n ami theii
views asked on this important question.
Mr. V. 15. Hreesc, president ol the First
National Hank, savs that it Ashevilleevei
expects to go ahead and become a great
city improvements should lie curried on.
"The bonded ilcbt of Asheville is not si
large now but that the city could very
easily stand an increase of one hundred
thousand dollars," he said. "If we could
lie assured that this amount would Ik
judiciously used toward the bettering o!
the condition of our streets and side
walks, 1 would vote for it and think it
would lie an excellent thing liir the place."
Mr. Ilreese is in favor ol using more ol
the brick pavement now liciug put down

probably be a good plan to wail and sci

cxieiiding nnv more money on them, but
he believes tliey will stand well With
relerence to the way they should lie put
down he savs:
"While I do not wish locust reflections
on any of those engaged on the present
work. I think the licst way to have il
done is by some strong, well backed lo
cal company that is pre land to uaran
tee the work for a reasonable length ol
Mr. R. R. Knwls, proprietor ol tin
Swanuunoa hotel, and who is ipiiti
heavily interested in Aslieville liriimrty
savs he is of the opinion that the city's
iHtndcd debt should lie increased from
JL'O.IK), the amount at present, to hall
a million dollars. I lus additional
amount," he says, "should lie exiendeii
on improving the city. The principal
streets. North mid South main, I'atton
avenue, College and Mcrrimoii avenue.
should be put in good condition In si am:
then the other and less iuiHirtant streets
should be attended to, .My idea is l
put the center of the city in good unlit
and concentrate the population as mud.

tn-tion better and cheainr than it
scattered. Those streets that are less
important than the ones I have men
I ionril should have a iK-rimim-iit Liradi
established and should lie lived up as
rapidly as Kissible.
Mr. Lewis Maddux, president of the
Western Carolina bank, and who has
had considerable exnTiemr in innnu ipal
affairs, thinks that something should 4k
done to improve the streets of Asheville.
Mr. Maddux was a resilient ol New York
cite and knows w lie! col he sin-uks. lie
says that although he Micvcs in having
the streets niadecousiileralily hcllcrlhaii
thev now are. he docs not want the city
to become too heavily cncumlicrcd with
"I think," he said, "that away from
the business portion of the town, on any
street or section ol street where the pro
erty owners are desirous ol having pav
ing put down a good wav to do it would
be as lollows. Let a majority of the own
ers ol properly on the street or section
petition the hoard ol aldermen lor the
work to be done there and then let the
owners pay one hall of the cost of the
paving. I do not think the city author
ities should allow so many new streets
to lie opened mid thrown on (heir hands
by private individuals. In New York
whenever a new stieet is oiciicl, those
doing it must ha vet he street put in good
condition and paved under the supervis
ion of the authorities, lielorc il will ac
cepted ns a pi.blic street. The bonded
debt ol the city should lie increased one
fourth of n million dollars, if necessary
to have the streets put m good condi
tion." Mr. Reuben Mcllruvcr, who, although
he has recently moved here, is thoroughly
identified with the interestsol the city and
is in favor ol Is tter streets. "I think," be
said, "that it would be well to increase
the bonded debt ol the city to whatever
amount ismvessiiry toiveU'tterstriTts.
I am not familiar with the condition ol
the city's finances, having recently made
mv home here, but think the city will not
lie hurt by improvements."
Mr. C. li. Ciraham, a large pniierty
owner and tax payer says: "The city
should issue JUi.liMMiu worth of 1 cr
cent. IhiiiiIs, the amount to lie used in
improving the sewers, sidewalks and
streets, the entire amount to Ik used
within three years."
Mr. YY. W. Ilarnard says that if the
city can have anv nssnrance that the
money will be proierly and judiciously

the Knoxville Tribune Sienks in the fol

"One of the most charming women nn

and ask that they unite in having a tele
phone placed for the joint use of these
two institutions. The hospital esiecially
is deH'mlent on tlie physicians and drug
stores, but having nomanor hoy to send,
the matron and n nurse, or two of the
muses, have been obliged to go over
two blocks, in the dead of night, and
rouse up a private family to get the use
of the nearest telephone. This should
not continue so; mid ns the manager ol
the telephone exchange has kindly prom
ised sonic reduction in price, I hope I can
order the instrument placed in the hos

tributions may be left at Tun Citiikn
