Not as a news item but on a ques

take post-graduate courses, and
cease being a college no better than
a number.of others in the state, and
do a distinctive work in higher edu

in the south?

Annual Financial Report.
The annual rinancial report of the

cember 31, 1904. is puihe~.d in dle

expenditures were $41,282.64. And
AS TO TOWN FINANCES.
It is proper to say to the taxpayers
of the town that the license ordinance
has been reenacted not because there
is any spirit of extravagance in the
town council, but because the rev
enue from this license will be neces
sary to run the town government
economically administered. All
doubt as to the necessity for the li
cense tax was removed by the fact
that a heavy and unusual expense
will result from the efforts of the
health department to prevent the
spread of smallpox.
The town owes a floating debt of
consi.derably more than twenty
thousand dollars, as will appear from
the report of the Clerk and Treasur
er, soon to be published, nearly all
of which bears interest at eight per
cent. The interest on this debt is
paid regularly but the income of the
town is not large enough to enable
it materially to reduce the principal
of the debt. In a few days the town
council will ask the freeholders of
the town to take necessary steps un
der the laws of the state to submit
to the voters of the town the ques
tion of funding this debt at a low
ra-e of interest, ana of providing
for the payment of both principal
and interest. Common business pro
dence demands that this be done, and
it is hoped that the citizers of the
town will heartily co-operate with
Geo. B. Cromer,
Virginia" on the pin. The finder
will be rewarded upon leaving the
same at this office.
