EbiTon The Herald:
I notice In last night's (same that the
Civic Federation at ita meeting- Thars
nlght i going to discuts the city
finance. In the word of the prophet,
and in all sincerity, I mutt add, "the
Lord be praised." for if anything de
serves dlKustion it Is the city's
finance. In this connection I have a
few questions 1 would bke to ask
questions that, In my Judgment, ooght
to have the careful cxmsUetntlea of the
Civic Federation and every taxpayer In
I it not a fact that the '-frltianui
of the city I now $09,000 and
above the legal limit; and that tf the
city were enjoined by nay fcuanyer the
warrants laesed for thk excess amstmt
wou d not be worth the psr they are
wri ten on? I know there art tatne
who contend that they wetjld he, hat I
think if a careful pstsjsal -cisiona
of the State SrtM start is
made, several eWeMtsm -His(arty
one, which It practieaVy sjswtsW tolka
cosjUtleMBnvtJIswg-.Btt this alf
bo found in support of my essetetrtesa.
In addition to this, is not tha etty
paying-in caah-6 per cent interest an
the $10,000 bond that were given for
the water works? -This interest has
amounted to about 17,000 already.
I there not a provision in tha dty
charter that the city cannot contract a
debt in excess of S500 unless the same
la submitted to the voters? If so, then
why did it contract for the fire slam
system without following the provis
ion of the charter? Remember, I am
in favor of the system, bat am opposed
to thi violation of the city charter.
I am not going to pursue this coarse
further at thin time. I will be present
at the meeting- of the Federation and
ice what i said and done. If I were
able to express myself ia opsa meeting
. would do so, but since leaaaot I tarn
to you. The government of thk city
i about a near a failure as anything I
can conceive. There ia not a man who
would run his business as tha eoancil
it running the affairs of Klamath Falls.
