It was gcnorallyiaccoptcd that under tho law a city of this class could Issue water bonds up to. twonty flvo per cent of tho assessed valua tion but In looking up tho, statutes Mr. Baskins found that as a' city, wo are limited to water bonds in tho sum of J150.000. Wo hnvo already out standing f 80,000 ill wntcr bonds, so that tho amount additional that could be issuod would bo but $70,000. This is loss than half tho amount which would bo needed to complete tho ex tensions as outlined by. tho mayor, tho city council and Wator Commis sioner Welch, and tho program of tho extension will therefore need bo abandoned for tho prosont year, at least. Just what action will bo takon In tho mattor will bo docfclod at tho regular meeting of tho council which wilt bo hold at tho city hall tonight. Counciman Baskins' plan is to lay out n program of future extensions and voto a certain amount of bonds each year until tho program is com pleted.
