upon all citizens to clean up their prim-

said report was rocoived and tho recom

The following communication Irom
tho mayor was read and, on motion of Al
derman Riibioson, referred lo ibo finance
commltte, viz:
(Jentlornen of the City Council ;
You aie wed a Ware itiat cily scrip is tond
ing downward ami men uiu out ou tbe
truets purchasing at 70 nnd 76 cents, and
uuicis lommbiug bu done spuedily to
check the downward tendency it musiaiid
will go down mil lower.
-The lacli are lheu: Wo bavo a large
amount ot scrip outstanding, bearing 10
percent, inlereit, and the taxes for tbit
year will not be collected until April,
18(4, making un additional issue of imp
noce.i.ry to run the city government un
lit thai tune, or in other words, the nuw
tax law has put au additional Uiue of
scrip on the market which we cannot
avoid, if wo would. It Is true that tbe
new city charter grants tbe city authori
ties all the powers neceiiary to collect
enough to pay tbe indubtedneis of the
city, but as that cannot be collected only
for the use of next year, It will do us no
good for the present year, and to collect
tbo whole amcunt outstanding in one year
would, in my Juifmout, work a hardship
to every tax-payer In our city. I
I have given this matter considerable
thought, as the question now is. what
tll tho cily do for money to run her tbe
present year? As before staled there is
t,o money in tbe treasury, iclp going
down and eome of th people clamoring
for improvement of one kind and another
and no means at tbe disposal of tbe coun
cil to make the said improvements.
In vlnw of this state of tacts I respect
full recommend to the city council, the
funding or taking up of nil the outstand
ing lutere.1 bearing scrip. Into bonds run
nlng 2, 3, and 6 yean with the tarn rat
of lBtMMtMrlf MW retire, Til i 10

city, but as this I merely trantfeT or
one kind of indebtedness Inlieuofaaether
I think there can be no legal objection. If
thero ii a legal objection to tho lnuo of
more bond tbe lame end can b accom
plished by the consolidation of icrip into
larger amounts and Issulns; new scrip to
tho parties holding tbe said scrip and then
taking tb scrip up. Tbeie, gentlemen,
are tbe only two method that
I can see to get rid of the scrip now Issued
and be free to enter on a new basil with
our annual approplatlon bill, and
bvidolng we will be compelled to keep
our ex penses within bounds of our receipt
when there will tfl no fluctuation in our
eltv icrip. Hoping the council will give
this matter the weight that the subject de
serves At their hands,
I am, very reipocifully,
