For the last couple of months a probe into the books of the former -street commissioners, .and investiga tion of methods employed, has been the program ofthe city fathers. At the. eouncil meeting held Monday night according to previous instruct tore Street Commissioner Bowles, filed a complete inventory of tools, supplies, machinery, and all appur ienances, owned by the city on Janu ary 1st, 1S11. The inventory showed that a large quantity of new supplies purchased last summer, are missing, and are lost to the eity. Councilman Bergman reported to the council, that with councilman VanGilder, he had inspected the books of-the retiring commissioner, alsojfjhe present in cumbent. He found that Mr. Bowles is debtor to the city in the amount of $1.65, so far as the records showed which arc kept by that officer. A total of $18.00 in cash is shown to Lave been collected by his predecessor no part of which was turned'into the city treasury. In his report -Bergman stated, that hitheftofore, there had been aboslutelyno system used in the matter of road taxes, their collection and credit. The commissioner Tiad in Innumerable instances; collected 2.00 in cash from citizens, and in stead of turning the cash into the city treasury, as is required by law; the officer would pay out the money ia employment of men for working ths roads. The inefficiency of the system is self evident. No record eis kept of street laborers, so era ployed, and as a consequence, the city x?z3 liable to loss materially on th icc2 from read taxes. The loss of tools, is accountable through the system of furnishing road laborers, with showels etc., with which to exe cute their work in the employ of the city. Often times, tools so taken out, were never returned. Proposes Reforms Councilman Clizbe led the move ment for reform in' the street depart ment, after the subject had been ex hausted in discussion. Clizbe fs plan, which will be adopted by the council is as foilows: .First At the beginning of eaeh year, an inventory of the tools, etc., owned by the city shall be taken, and the same charged up to the street commissioner; who shall account for the same, at the expiration 'of the year, and be required to supply any missing tools. The commissioner in turn can be protected, by charging eaeh laborer with tools taken out, which shall be" accounted for,, at the end of each day's work. Second The system of collecting roaTl taxes must be completely re vised. A record of each poll in the city will be kept, and each will be charged with the $2.00 tax, which will be stricken out upon the presentation of a receipt fr,ora the commissioner showing one day's labor, or the $2.00 in cash. All collections lo be made o the city treasurer and all money collected to be deposited in the city treasury. Tn this manner the ques tion of road taxes w;ll be systematiz ed, and the citywill fear no"" loss rom that source. The looseness with which the department has-been conducted in former years has been sonrce of wonderment to many citizens. the club room?.' - The club has decided tc nr, l-v.;pr ' NAMFS OFFIf'FRS T '"'"-'''f - 'in':oin'' ! ; lirilTlLikJ , vl 1 IVsluiYu elas, f.r private dances, as moi I s ;ile fii'xr spac will be talcon up . installation f tor ?ryi!iii!; MRS.

An informal discus rion of the subject, met with unan imous favor throughout the council. Mayor Cleveland was absent from the city, and courcilman Bergman pre sided as mayor Pro Tem. Council man Swindell had been excused early in the evening, after the official busi ness was transacted. VanGilder and Bowell were in favor of purchasing the lot on time. "The city cannot lose on the proposition of buying that lot" said Bowell, because even as an investment, the opportunity to sell at an advanced price, is golden. As -a dealer in real estate, I know that, price for the lot is more than reasonable, and would be heartily in favor of purchasing it." The lot Las a frontage of sixty-eight feet. Other Proposal Councilman YanOilder proposed that a public toilet room with closets be constructed in the city, for the ac- c.o'iation of visitors.

The members put City Atty. Judge Hess through ü cross fire of questions, as to what recourse the city might have, against the station ing of ungainly bill boards, at the edge of sidewalk, throughout the business and residence sections. Clizbe referred to a bill board on east Sophia street, which he deemed more than a nuisance, nere the papers are said to become loose, and fall on the sidewalk. Paste is spilled on the walks and make a disagreeable spot. Judge Hess said that the only re course which the council might take, would be in prosecutions on the grounds of public nuisance. All of these discussions were continued until the next meeting of the council. "A Welcome. Chance to Those Who Suffer" Coming to Plymouth. Indiana.
