NOT TO FORK OVER
City Has Its Answer From County
Treasurer on Back Tax
DIVISION INADVISABLE NOW
Backed by an Unsigned Legal Opin
ion More Waterworks
The city council has been informed
that its portion of the bark taxes
collected by the ferrets who have been
working for months at the court
house is not available at present.
Last month the city fathers adopt
ed a resolution demanding an appor
tionment of the collections and noti
fying the county that a continuance
of the work of the ferrets would be
without the consent of the city.
The reply of County Treasurer Da
vid II. Lyons was read at the meeting
of the council held last evening. It
was in answer to a letter from K. 1.
Anderson, the city treasurer. Mr.
Lyons says that, on consultation with
a number of the leading members of
the county bar, he finds it inadvisable
to make J.n allotment of the moneys
on hand just now. and inclosed an
unsigned legal opinion sustaining him
in his decision.
The opinion advises that there be
no division until the delinquent taxes
have been gathered. The communica
tion was received and referred to the
finance committee with the exception
of the legal opinion, which was tabled
on motion of Aid. Kohbins. The ald
ermen were curious to know who this
part of the letter was from, but no
one seemed able to enlighten them.
Finally Aid. Kennedy suggested it
might be the work of (I. Washington
ev Pump Ik Nceiltil.
Further data prepared by Aid. kob
bins. chairman of the waterworks
committee, tended to show that it
would be poor business policy to re
pair the old pump at the city station,
lie had two estimates, one from the
Moline Too! company, at $."i.-IT.". and
another from the Davenpoit Foundry

day the consumption is so great the

ply for a very long period should the
Oaskill break down. The Oaskill be--ing
the- onlv pump we have with t In

it will wear and needs repairs at
times. We have had two break-downs

We cannot, however, foresee what the
