The county commissioners have in hand at present a project for refunding the outstanding indebtedness of the county, amounting to $125,000, and using part of the sinking fund which has accumulated to pay the indebtedness for the construe tion of a new hall of records. The hall of records is needed in the estimation of the commissioners. The following communication has Ibeenl addressed to the county attorney, asking him for information concerning the pro posed action. Ask Breen's Advice. "Honorable Peter Breen, County At 1torney, Silver Bow County, Montana iHonored Sir: Will you please give the board of county commissioners all the legal information you can concerning their power to issue refunding bonds to the amount of $125,000, and also the pro. per legal way to proceed to issue said ,bonds. The county has at present a i onded indebtedness of $125,000, dtawing Interest at the rate of 5 per cent per an nuli. "If the county commissioners can issue 4 per cent refunding bonds to reduce the outstanding indebtedness of the county they can save 1 per cent and at the same time have enough money in the sinking fund ($71,000) to build a hall of records, vlhich is of the gravest necessity. Re 'lpectfully, yours, "COUNTY COMMISSIONEtS. "WM. D. CLARK, Chairman." The present hall of records is overflow. ing with books and papers, the hall being composed of several vaults in the court house, which are crowded. ,For this rea son a new storehouse of some kind must b· provided. May Refund Bond. The county bonds bear 5 per cent In te'est at present. They are redeemable next July. There is a sinking fund of $.±,000 in the treasury for that purpose IloW. Instead of redeeming the bonds in July, Commissioner Clark thinks It would he a good plan to refund them at 4 per cent interest. He thinks 4 per cent bonds will sell at a premium, just as have the dis trict school bonds. This having been done, the money in the sinking fund would be available for other purposes, and it is proposed by the commissioners to use a portion of it to build a hall of records. A communication from Mr. Breen on the subject of the powers of the board In the premises will be awaited with inter est. SMALL DELINQUVENCY. Business Was Good in Beaverhead County Last Year.
