Good credit is a valuable assot for an individual or firm, but strange and anomolous as it may appear, for a city it is a misfortune. A city, liko a fam ily, has many real and imaginary wants right from tho start, both fami lies and cities grow, but tho expense of the latter usually grows faster than tho income. School houses, hospitals, oity halls, sewers, paved streets etc. follow each othor in rapid succession. Wbatover a city buys or builds, gene rally costs more than private peoplo pay for like services. Valuable fran chises seldom bring the city anything. Whenever a city undertakes the man agement of gas or water works, finan cial failure is the usual outcome. It don't take the ''fathers" of a young city long to learn that tho taxes aro inadequate to mako the "needed im provements" and they commence bor rowing. Should any cool-headed counoilman object, he is voted down as a "mossback"and "old fogj " When a city goes in debt onoe, thero is sel dom any stop to it. It grows like an avalanche until the city's credit is ex hausted, tht sooner that point is reaohed the better for the taxpayer On account of overstook, I have re duced ealvanized barb wire to 4c a lb. wire nails to oo a lb with a corres. ponding reduction by the kog.
