The report of the committee was that the extension of the Eighth street water main would have to be about 1,000 feet, which would require ,one hydrant and con sumers rental to the amount of $49.

THE PETTO BONDS CONDITION OF THE TREASURY ANNUAL CLERK AND TREASUR ER'S REPORT SHOWS GAIN TOTAL BALANCE $22,000 Gain is Attributed to the Policy of Economy Light Plant no Long er a Drag. The annual report of the city clerk and the city treasurer was presented to council last evening. The chief feature of it is that the electric light plant is not a drag any. more, as the city is now in better financial condi tion than at any time since the build ing of the light plant. The balance in the treasury is now about $22,000, seven thousand more than at the end of the fiscal year ending April 30, 1903. This is a very creditable show ing and shows that Richmond is be ing run on strictly money-making and economical principles. Mayor Zimmerman was well satisfied with the showing and he attributes it to the policy of economy which was fol lowed by the old council and which, if he has anything to do with it, will be followed by the next council. The budget for the various com mittees remains about the same.
