GENERAL ACENT FOR MONTANA
Founded 1868
; has a recipe that could safely be re-,
! commended as a panacea for any city's
I financial ailments. It is this:
; .. JVhe%a dty - s eipenditures are ]arse r
; than its receipts, cut down expenses."
i "There is no other plan for the cities
! c '{ n ^ ont:lna to adopt, said the mayor.
The loss of liquor license receipts and
fines is going to be greater at most
j places than can be secured thru any
j other source, and nothing remains except
j to cut down expenses until they can be
, wpt from such funds as remain avail
j able. The legislature will probably pass
a law allowing municipalities to increase
tax levies two mills, but I do hot ex
pect it will be larger than that, If*®
get the two mills it will place Great V alls
in fairly good shape, altho it will be
necessary "even then to lop off expenses
here and there.
"Great FalLs has an assessed valu
ation of something over .$16,(XX),000 and
if we are allowed to add two mills to our
tax levy we can increase the city s in
come $82,0(H) thru taxation. We will lose
$26,000 annually because of the pro
hibition law and the absence of saloons
will probably mean 'the loss of at least
$6,000 every year heretofore collected
I in fines. The proposed increase in the
I tax levy will just provide a means of
plugging the hole made by these two
items, but the city will still be compelled
to eliminate the $2.000 per month deficit
that has existed during a portion of the
past year.
"This can be done only by reducing
the running expenses of the city, and I
do not doubt that a comprehensive plan
of retrenchment will be adopted by the
council. My recommendation will be that
the membership of the police and fire
departments be cut down. By reducing
the police department from 26 to 20
men' and the fire department from .»>
to 26 I think a start will be made to
wards getting around the monthly deficit.
In this I am supported by the views of
officials of other cities in the state.
Missoula, next in size to Great Falls,
has a police department composed of
only six men. Helena is about the same,
and the capitol city also found a way
to reduce the expenses of its fire de
partment. It. consolidated all its fire
stations, which permitted the release of
a number of firemen and eliminated
j much of the maintenance cost. I do not
i think it will be possible in Great h alls
to cut out the north side and west side
stations, but I do think a way can be
j found to dispense with the services of
j seven or eight firemen. And I am con
! fident that the city can get along with
the police department reduced by six
! members. With this pruning of the city s
! payroll as a beginning. I think we will
i have no trouble in putting our finances
back in excellent shape."
Mayor Fousek said he thot the use of '
the police patrol wagon would be dis
continued entirely. If this plan is adopted
the three drivers now regularly employed j
will n® longer be required and a big item j
of expense will be eliminated by putting ,
the big machine on the shelf. "We will
find a safe place to store the wagon,"
said the chief, "and put it away and ;
leave it there. The greatest use to ;
which it was ever put was that of j
hauling drunks who could not walk, and
now that there are no drunks there isn t
very much necessity for keeping it in
commission. Since the saloons closed the
drivers have never left the station dur- ;
ing some of their shifts, and if the j
wagon had not been at hand such i
prisoners as were arrested at any time,
could have been walked in by the arrest- ;
ing offftrers. I think it is safe to say that j
within a short time the patfoi wagon j
will be placed in storage."
The mayor did not say what other :
officers ean be spared from the police
department, nor did he mention the ;
exact wav in which the membership of j
the fire department will be reduced.
EGLAKD IS RETURNIirS
TO OLD HOME IN NORWAY
Gunder Upland, one of the prominent
ranchers near Big Timber, was in Great
Falls vesterday while en route to Lewis
town where he will spend a short time
visiting his sister and brother-in-law,
Mr. an<f~Mrs. Robert Ferguson. From
Lewistown he will go to New York from
whence he will sail on February 1 for
his old home at Stavanger, Norway, where j
he will visit for some time and may
possibly locate there. V r Egland has

HE ALLEGES WIFE
GOT TOO ROUGH
Human patience reached its limit With
Allen It. Sharp when his wife, after
allegedly calling him "a lazy old cur,"
striking him once with a crutch and
again with a cane, calling him vile names
and saying she would "get a gun and
blow his.' old head off,,?' threatened to
"give him a pill and put him away."
Just for that he wants a divorce, altho
he had opportunity ,during 29 years to
get used to Mrs. Sharp's little ways.
They were married at Minneapolis.
October 10, 1S90, and during the past
10 years have lived in Montana.'
Mrs. Sharp's attitude towards her
husband, the complaint relates, has
caused him grievious mental suffering,
allegedly due to her deliberate malicious
ness. The defendant says he is a cripple
and has come to live in fear of his wife.
She was repeatedly threatened and at
tacked him with a gun, he says, and has
used language implying lack of faith in
his chastity. Once, the complaint con
tinues, Mrs. Sharp told him she would
be glad if he would leave the ranch of
which he is himself the proprietor.
The action became of record in dis
trict coufrt yesterday.
MURPHY STAYS LONGER
Mike Murphy, a vagrant who was
committed some time ago to serve a jail
sentence for vagrancy, has been again
taken before Justice of the Peace P. E.
Lam ere and once more ordered con
fined. He will serve 30 d:ivs this time.
