by tha commissioners that the election

of such a bond issue with tho under
standing that tha relief and restoration
authorities prove that it is rjocessary.
The board met Mayor Dahlman, the city
commissioners and representatives of tho
relief and restoration committee. After
the meeting Commissioner Lynch said:

Messrs. Kennedy and Mahonay of tho

would prepare statements showing the
disposition of the funds paid out and tha

Election Commissioner .Moorhead's do
sire to assume the duties of his office
immediately was approved by the county
board. It consulted County Attorney
Maguoy as to whether Caldwell & Drako
had any right to retain possession ot
the large room on the first floor, and,
the county attorney said that since tha
commissioners had settled with the con
tractors in full, the latter had no right
to attempt to hold it by putting on an

Reports circulated that the commis
sioners did not oxpect repayment of all
the leans made of tho fund derived from
the bond Issues was one of the principal
points discussed. Mayor Dahlman raised
the Issue. He said ha believed that 19
per cent of the loans would be repaid
by property owners; that property would
ltcreasa in value and that the county
would have no difficulty In ccllectlng.
Other speakers expressed fear that if
there was an Impression tha the county
would not collect all tho money loaned,
It would create sentiment against the
bonds. They agreed that there should
be no difficulty in collecting.
Robert Cowell of the relief committee
said tha committee had received about
$400,000, between $300,000 and $300,000 having
been expended. He expressed tho view
that all tha receipts could be advantage
ously used by this committee.
It was estimated that If the bonds are
voted a total of about $550,000 would bo
used for restoration, divided as follows;
The original restoration fund of $200,000;
$100,000 from the relief fund, and tha
$2SO,000 from the bond issue,
