HAVE Mil NO OFFER COUNCIL STILL UNABL3 TO PRO CEED WITH PURCHASE. New Jail Badly Needed Expenses In crease But Receipts Are Sta tionery. Until council can hear from the owners of .the old waterworks system no steps can be taken to acquire the property, it was brought out at last night's session. Chairman McNally, of the special water committee said that he had written to the officials of the company, asking them to make a price, but that no answer has been received. More time was granted the committee. That a new city jail is badly needed was brought to the attention of coun cil by Alderman Dineen. The pres ent quarters are a disgrace, it was agreed. This is a matter that has been before the council several times before, but no steps have yet been taken. A committee composed of Al dermen Dineen, Jacobson and Cough lin to se what can be done towards securing a new location for a city jail. Alderman Dineen submitted an amendment to the traffic ordinance reiative to the parking of cars, mak ing it unlawful to park cars at spots designated as non-parking places. This will apply especially to filling stations and entrances to garages. The ordiance will be brought up at tile-next meeting for passage. Mr. Usina, who was present as a spectator, called the attention of council to the assessment against the waterworks plant, which is now fixed at $100,000. Mr.- Usina said that the plant cost the city $60,000 and that about $20,000 had been spent since the initial cost. At the city's present ratio, of assessments the as sessment against the water works should be only about half the amount on the books at present. The clerk was instructed to go through the rec oids and ascertain just what the plant did cost the cfty. It was decided to call the attention of the railroads to the condition of the weeds along then- tracks between Third and Fourth streets. The clerk was instructed to write a letter requesting the railroad author ities to place a crossing of their tracks at Eleventh and Laurel streets. The salaries of firemen Perrin and Usina were raised $5 and $10 respec tively. A light was ordered placed oa Eleventh stret, by Dunyham. Alderman Coughlin called attention to the fact that the city is faclntr a serious financial situation, as tne expenses are mounting higher and higher and the revenue has not in creased appreciably. No sugges tion was made for a remedy, but coun cil will probably give the matter con sideration at a subsequent meeting. The application of C. H. Wigg for the position made vacant by the res ignation of City Engineer Stallings was received an dfiled. 5! a I i it REASONABLE TERMS HANDSOME ENGRAVED DIPLOMA GIVEN TO GRADUATES CALL AT 200 N. THIRD ST. AFTER 5:00 P.M. FOR INFORMATION. )! a I a DENVER VOTING ON FIXING FARES FODAY DENVER, COLO., Oct. 22 Tur moil over this city's street railway problem was to be settled in today's special, election on two plans for fix ing fares, the elastic fare plan and the service-at-CQ3t scheme. Both specify an initial 6-cent fare with free transfers. The people's choice is supposed to decide the future, policy of the city council toward the street railway problem. A good sized vote was ex pected to be cast as interest in the question is general Under the service at cost plan the council would create a board of tram way control which would have control over expenditures and service by the street railway company. Returns would be limited to a fixed per cent on tHe "fair" valuation of the rail way property but no guarantee to stockholders is provided for. Un der the service-at-cost plan1 fares would start at six cents but might be raised or lowered according to the re lation of the company's revenue and expenses. If the company lowered fares a small additional earning on the valuation would be allowed. The cost scheme also authorizes the peo ple to buy the plant at any time they vote to do so. The elastic 6-cent fare plan pro vides that whenever the present wage schedule for employes is changed the rate of car fare should be changed accordingly.
