We recommend that there be no
levy for tho mantenance of the white
school the present year for the reason
that after a careful examination of
the receipts and expenses of this
fund for the past year we find there
will be sufficient means to meet ex
penses without a special levy This
amount is derived from State fund
interest on school lottery bonds
and balance on hand to its credit at
this time This examination of its
resources shows that with the same
expenditure that was made for its
support the past twelve months the
above mentioned resources will fully
meet the demands and leave a
balance at the expiration of the
school year ending June 30th 1892
But should there arise from any
cause a necessity for a larger sum
to maintain said school in the effi
cient administration of its beneficent
purpose we unhesitatingly assert
that the moans will be readily appro
priated from any funds on hand at
the time the demand arises We
believe this course is justified by the
necessities upon us from other
sources and when understood will
fully satisfy the most ardent advo
cates of our common school system
among whom the undersigned com
mittee are pleased to class them
selves With the above exhibit and
assurance we feel that it is un
necessary to further elaborated this
branoh of this report
The Colored School is amply pro
vided for having at present about
two thousand dollars to its credit be
sides being supported by the entire
tax collocted from colored persons in
tne city
With these school interests prop
erly provided for we are called upon
to meet only the requirements sot
forth in tho estimate above unless
perhaps some new obligation should
arise which wo trust will not be the
case during tho present year
To meet tho above demands wo
are forced to recommend that the
tax levy for the present year be made
160 for revenue which alone will
not fully realize an amount suiilcent
to meettheso estimated expenses but
which we trust will be ample after it
is supplemented by interest due on
Midland Railroad bonds tax judg
ments rent of city hall and collec
tion of back taxes Our apology for
the recommendation of tho above
large tax levy is that the city should
meet its obligations promptly and
that no tax lovy should bo made
which will not enable the council to
pay its floating debt and thus avoid
tho payment of bank interest which
has already requirod too great an ex
penditiou of tho public funds
Another reason for this tax lovy is
found in tho recently formed Consti
tution of the State which provides
that after tho presout yoar tho tax
levy of cities in tho class with Frank
fort shall bo limited to tho amount of
75 coats on tho one hundred dollars
to moot its curront expenses Wo
beliovo that prudent forethought
demands that wo should make all
needful preparation tho present yoar
by extinguishing our floating debt
and ondoavor to placo tho city
finances in tho best possible condi
tion for tho curtailed resources of
the oity which tho now Constitution
will necessitate Wo trust that by
tho application of strict business
principles in the management of the
city affairs an economical expendi
ture of its funds and a close scrutiny
of all accounts that the expiration of
tho present year will find the city
with all aocounts paid up with no
bank debt and ready to adjust itself
to tho schedule imposed by the new
State Constitution
