Quite a number of visitors were pres ent at tbe meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen last Tuesday night, including a committee of ladies from the different organizations in be half of the Carnegie Library. Mrs. Swiggart was at the head of this com mittee, associated with Mrs. C. W. Miles, Sr., Mrs.. W. H. Gardner, Mrs. F J. Smith, Mrs. J. L. Mosier and others. ' The board, suspending the regular order, invited the ladies to present their requests, and Dr. Miles, in their behalf, submitted to the board a brief of the fact that the city was under obligations to store the library with books and pre pare for a formal opening of that insti tution. He therefore asked that an ap propriation be made for this purpose. Addresses, very eloquent and appeal ing, were also made by J. M, Brice, F, J. Smith and J. L. Mosier. J. L. Fry and John Tv Walker were also called upon for suggestions, and they respond ed, urging the fact that the city was under a very heavy financial strain, and that such help as could be given the library after provisions for other obliga tions were made should be extended. The question was left with the board, who later on passed a resolution to ap propriate $500, $250 to be paid 'subject to tbe orders of the committee on the purchase of books, and $250 one year later. . . , The board, after considering the prop osition of making reductions on some trust funds, including one or two peti tions for that purpose, voted .first to allow the reductions, and after further discussion reconsidered and rejected the petitions, for the reason that it would carry reductions indefinitely to all such funds, without any well defined lines as to how far such matters should extend. Petitioners wanted reduction to the ba sis of tax rate of 70 per cent, which is the real estate levy. . The board heard some letters read by W. L. Alexander, superintendent of the Water and Light Flant, relative to the services of a consulting engineer for water and light plant extensions.', The Committee on Water and Lights was instructed to employ a suitable man and have him make plans for such ex tensions, subject to the orders of , the board. These extensions, it is believed, will involve an expenditure of approx imately ZO,UUU, ana some very tie ful clans must necessarily be made. It is hoped that the right kind of a man can be had and the best results may follow. We don't want to see the city hoodwinked by some grafter seeking to exntoit the sale of special machinery, by which he is to be the beneficiary of graft, nor do we wish to see the instal lation of a plant not in accordance . with the best authority in such affairs. There are always troubles to avoid and the board will have to be very careful. The board was very anxious to make a larger appropriation for library books, but on account of our financial bur dens at this time could not see their way clear to do so, They appreciated the presence of the ladies, and would like to have them meet and express tbeir wishes on further occasions. '"' ' City Finances. In order to show in a general way tbe condition of the finances of Udkd City we make a brief statement as follows: Bonded indebtedness... .$03,000 This includes water and light bonds and school bonds and the recent issue of $25,500 street and sidewalk bonds. Other indebtedness.. $13,82 This includes money borrowed for the west side school building and improve ments on the main building, for school lot and gravel. ' Accounts for rutining expenses in the different departments are about offset by receipts to date. The above shows our total indebtedness to date. ' Revenues t6 be collected are as follows: 1913 taxes, approximately. 23,000 Privileges, etc 5,000 Due on sidewalks. 22,000 . ; Total-....-"50'000 Out of this fund the current expenses of the year 1914 must be paid, the ex- nense of the construction of a new water and light plant, which will be about $25,000. the borrowed money, $13,828, the interest on same and the interest on bonds and tbe sinking funa. Of course the earnings from the water and light plant, whatever tbey are.will be fieured in the expenses. But there will also be the expense of completing street and sidewalk contracts. We print this for the benefit of the citizens who are becoming interested in our public betterment, and everybody should be familiar with our ability to handle these things. , ' A GOOD; WATCH FoUl Down and $LOO Per WeeK 0 ) During the month of flarcli we arp going to sell any watch in stock on an easy-payment plan.
