We have riot been advised as to what
proportion, if any. of -'..or- various ac
. counts should bo classed as actually
I delinquent. yet ii is surprising thai
| , such a huge percentage of the taxes?
| approximately about ho per coat.?
R ; should bo withheld from the ci:v, and
the government denied the use of that
? money w hich by right and by law i; is
entitled to have, and which it musi

obligations. !i occurs to us ilia: ail
patriotic and Jaw-abiding citizens arc
nf equally interested with the officials oi
^ the city in having ail oi* the contracts:
that are Intended to promote the welfare
of the community, faithfully and
i honestly carried out, ami one way to
do that is for every citizen and taxf
1 payer to promptly contribute his just
: proportion of the burdens of taxation.
jt j Those of our people who have failed
; to thus pay are making it more diffii
cult for the city authorities to properiv
discharge their public duties, and
! where this failure to pay is due to an
intention upon the part oi the tax|
payer to embarrass the administraj
tion, or to evade his just proportion of
the public debt, the officers are, in
' our humble opinion, justified in having
j recourse to the remedies provided by
law for the enforced collection of
I taxes and levies.
2. We therefoie respectfully call
== I your attention to the power that is
j conferred upon you, as city collector,
ust i iti tlie charter of ue city, as containrst
j od in section 21), of chapter 11 of the
ust Acts of the Legislature of 1S99. which
ide said section, in part, reads as foluld
lows: "It sliall be me duty of the city
isp collector to collect city taxes, license,
jnt levies, assessments, wharfage, water
ere rents, and such other city claims a?
to placed in his hands for collection
ta- by tj*e council; in case the same are

day of October, after they are placed
In- in his hands for collection, he shall
collect interest at the rate of one-half
be pc-r centum per month, until the same
ng are paid, and may distrain and sell
thereof in like manner as the sheriff
:nay distrain and sell for said taxes.
X and he shall have, in all respects, tor
samt power as the sheriif to enforce
ou the payment and collection thereof. '
And we do further call your attention
at to the ordinances relating to the watersystem
of the city, in which it is nro...-.i?i

I s; me becomes due, the city author1my
ties are required to disconnect the delinquent
consumer from the water sys
j In conclusion, we certainly trust
| that sufficient funds will be forthcoming
when needed to discharge the
vn. pressing obligations of the city, and
x in order to effect this result, the com
nittee feels that it must have the
av earnest co-operation and assistance of
all of the city officials, yourself among
rue number.
Respectfully yours,
Finance Committee.

The Student's Dream. When
Prof. Folwell. who occupies : !
the chair of political science at. the
University of Minnesota, was president
of Unit, institution some years ago he ...
was the victim of a certain student
who had a wonderful genius for mak- j"/.,
ing a nuisance of himself. - &?|||
He was an extremely tall young man ; ,? ; |
and he usually rose early in each lecture
to ask some foolish question or .
to offer an irrelevant suggestion, and m
was gotten back Into his seat with the
utmost difficulty.
One day at the close of a lecture
during which he had kept on his feet
two-thirds of the time he approached
Prof. Folwell and said: "
"Oh. bv the way; I had a strange
dream last night. Interested in
"Not especially," answered' Prof.
Folwell, gathering up his papers.
"But this was so peculiar," persisted
the youth. "Dreamed I was Ba
"Indeed ?"
"Fact. And then?you know how it
is with dreams?everything seemed to
sort of change around, and the nejet'
thins i knew I actually dreamed"1 was ~
the ass?really did."
"Young man." said Prof. Folwell,
.starling for the door, "you are mis-'
taken about that part being a dream.

Two-Storied* Street Cars.
An interesting, though rather ab- ~'
struct, discussion has been started on
the ipu-i-tion v. hy electric street lines
| should not run double-decked cars. '
This is in I-hiKland with success.
I The rapacity of the cars is increased.' "
the Heats on the upper deck in summer-. ,
;ire dosirabie for the outlook ancl fresh
air. and both the corporations and pub-,
lie would beam to be benefited by.such
an innovation. - vv.
It is an interesting fact that in the J
primary horse car days the doubledecker
was by no means unknown, and.
iit pleasant weather the roof seats
were favorites. Why they went out of
use is not plain tinless it -was the . -V
heavy load they made l'or the horsesIn
cable days some cars of this type '(C'S
were introduced, but for some rcasoa_
they did not last ions'.
At present the principal question r;
cooceriimtj them is whether they would
pass beneath elevated railway. ~
tracks and lew bridges. Besides that
the hours when the cars serve the '
same purpose as a bush, to which a
swarm of bees clings might develop
new possib?.ties in the line of risk
to life and limb. If those objections . J
can be dissipated the double-decked /
car would be especially enjoyable in /'%
summer use.
