The Sanitary Market has very kindly

distributed at Thanksgiving time to
needy families.
A number of families, described be

We keep in touch with the different
avenues of employment in Alliance

Mrs. L. M. Beat has been donating
one gallon of fresh milk each day for
the past six weeks to be given out
to families who need it. This has
been distributed to families where
there were small children. Many
clothes have been donated and there is
still need for many more.
We appreciate very much the as

committee by kind-hearted citizens it

so that anyone having registered All i
pnee school district warrants can turn
them into us, or to the banks and get
cash for them. By doing this they
will save the taxpayers the interest on
whatever amount they hold. For the
time being we will probably hold all of
our outstanding school warrants.
The citizens of Alliance certainly
ewe the banks a debt of gratitude for
the splendid spirit shown by them in
cashing all city warrants through this
high money period without discount
ing them in any way. Nearly every
town in the state outside of Alliance
ha-rnad their warrants discounted
more or less. This means that the
taxpayers have to pay this much more
in taxes. There are always some peo
ple who are ready to criticise the
banks; perhaps this 13 because they
have not made them a3 large loans
as they thought they should have.'
The facts are, however, that our
banks were perfectly willing to han
dle the school money as above out
lined. Naturally it means consider-1
a J ii l m. '
a me less money ior mem dui more
for the school district and less taxes
fr all of us to pay. Most people put
their own interest first and the public
interest afterwards.
It is our practice to go to the county
treasurer at least once a month and
get whatever money he may have
gathered in from taxation and in this
way tie pay our registered warrants
as "soon 83 possible and stop the in
terest thereon. By watching this we
can save a good many hundred dollars
a year in interest for the city.
In the next day or two the county
treasurer will know how much money
we will have in our various sinking
funds and if we have enough to retire
any of our various bond or warrant
issues, etc., we will call in as many as
we can and pay them off and stop in-,
terest. The only way to reduce our
taxes is to economize and pay our
Some have asked U3 whether or not
we are planning on any paving this
year. That is a matter for you to
decide but as we see it, it would be a
better plan to continue this season ut
least with our liquidation process and
pay off all of our obligations that we
can. In the meantime freight rates
and materials will surely come down.
We will then have our slate pretty
well cleared ofT and will we where we
can make thees improvements without
bankrupting ourselves.
