Good credit is a valuable asset for an individual or firm, but strango and anomolous as it may appear, for a city it is a misfortune. A oity, like a fam ily, has many real and imaginary wants right from tho start, both fami lies and oities grow, but the expenso of tho latter usually grows faBter than tho income. School houses, hospitals, city halls, sewers, pavod streets etc. follow each othor in rapid succession. Whatever a city buys or builds, gene rally costs more than private people pay for like services. Valuable fran chises seldom bring the city anything. Whonover a city undertakes tho man agement of gas or water works, finan cial failure is the usual outcome. It don't take tho "fathers" of a young city long to learn that tho taxes aro inadequate to make the "neoded im provements" and thoy commence bor rowing. Should any cool-headed councilman objeot, he is voted down as a "mosfcback" and "old fogj " When a oity goes in debt once, thoro is sel dom any stop to it. It grows like an avalanche until the city's credit is ex hausted, the. sooner that point is reached the better for the taxpayer On account of overstock, I have re duced ualvanizcd barb wire to 4c a lb, wire nails to oo a lb with a corres. ponding reduction by the keg.
