Atler the comptroller had finished read

meetings should be held from time to
time in order that the members of the
committee might discuss Mr. McCardy's

a While every one is al this season of
the year talking about,' or is very much
Interested in. tax rates, tax estimates,
meeting of the legislature, etc., a few
observations on some city matters may
perhaps be interesting, and are respect
fully submitted at this lime for the in
formation of the taxpayers, and of this
conference committee also, as >ugges
tions to those who may be called to act
for us at the coming session of the legis
lature. It is a curious tact in our city
affairs that iv political meetings and in
private gatherings many citizens will
talk and advise fluently on national
finances, and of defects and remedies,
when they are woefully ignorant of .the
time, details and charter history of a
city tix estimate or city tax levy of a
million dollars or more taken annually
from their pockets. i
To study and understand national j
finances is considered an intelligent
citizen's duty, but to study and intelli- j
gently understand our city or home
financial system— one of the best. I |
believe.found in American cities the !
. exception among our citizens.
During the period from Aug. 1, 1894,
to Aug. 1, 1913. there will become due
water bunds as follows:
April 1. 1909 ¥500.000
Juue 1, 1912 350,000
Aug. 1.1913 150,000;
To meet the above we have in the
•water board sinking fund today $248.
--000, which, together with interest there
on at simple Interest, 4 per cent, and i
with $25,000 annually placed in that j
fund by the board, will produce as fol
Balance on hand today ¥248,C00
Pour per cent simple interest,
nineteen years 188,450
Nineteen years' deposit, $25,000
per year 475,000
four tier cent simple interest,
average titue.ou same 180,000
"With the growth of the city and ex
tensions of mains the number of con
sumers aud revenue will largely in
crease. This being the case, it will not
be necessary, a3 will be seen from the
above st. lenient, to place in the water
board sinking fund over $25,000
annually. Therefore it matters not to
us what price is charged in other cities
lor water. We may well consider
whether our rates are not too high,
and wketheror not the rate of 10 cents
per front foot frontage for an unlimited
lime should not be reduced at least one
half and that assessed for only a fixed
number of years: or, perhaps a better
policy, charge the laying for water
pipes against the adjacent property
as a local assessment, the same as a
sidewalk or sewer assessment is
charged, is not a water pipe and
access to water as much a purely local
benefit as a sidewalk or a sewer? No
one can use or enjoy its benefit save the
'i lie income of the board is more than
sufficient to pay running expenses and
lay tip money in its sinking fund be
sides. '1 here has been $67,000 placed in
that fund during the present year.
Board of Control.
The system of outdoor relief by the
board of control at present is to give to
the applicant an order on some retail
establishment for supplies, which are
p.id for monthly at retail prices. Sbould
the commissary system be adopted, the
supplies, consisting chiefly of flour,
pork, tea, beans and soap, could be pur
chased at wholesale, and by tbis means
fully 25 per cent mere relief given svith
the same amount of money.
A few brief facts on the question .of
lighting the streets and public build
ings: We have at present 3,101 gas,
and 3,331 gasoline lamps. Our annual
expense for lighting is -about ¥165,000.
By the terms or what is called a con
tract between the gas company and the
ciiy, we have the right to purchase the
gas works at stated periods. This oc
curs the next time In about a year hence
by giving the gas company six months'
. notice of intention to do so^ (Valuation
to be fixed.)
in view of the very rapid development
of the uses of electricity, and the cheap
ness by which the city can own and
operate Its own electrical plant, and
light all the streets In the city and all
our public buildings at a very much less

expanse than is now paid, it is a serious
question whether the city would care to
consider the question of purchasing the
plant, certainly not if the incumbrance
upon it and the other plants jointly in
the city has to be assumed.
The incumbrance referred, to, and
recorded in .Varcn. 1894, in the oltice of
the register of deeds, is in the shape of
a mortgage for ¥5,000,000, running fifty
years at 5 per cent interest, semi
annually in gold. gpSSLiyS
Municipal debts and expenses must
be paid. Our taxes are high, and the
burdens should he fairly and equally
distributed. To make such distribution
is one or the most perplexing and diffi
cult problems of government. To place
a separate cash valuation upon each
and every separate description or tract
or lot of land in Banisey county is the
duty of the county assessor. That,
errors of judgment and mistakes will
occur is inevitable. The lime under the
law in which this duty must be per
formed is limited. Let any dissatisfied
taxpayer select ten blocks in any addi
tion, and try and make a valuation of
each lot and of each improvement on
each lot, and he will then realize the
perplexing duties imposed on the as
Still I must agree with many com
plainants that in many cases the
assessments of values for a basis of
taxation are unjust and unequal. The
fault Is not in the law, but in its admin
istration. lam convinced the taxpayers
do not give this matter proper atten
tion. To make that attention of any
practical use it should be given not
after the assessment is made, nor at the
time taxes are paying, but at th time
the assessor is engaged in his work.
This is where our people neglect their
duty, a dnty not only wliich they owe to
themselves, but to their, neighbors.
How many, I repeat, of our citizens
can give the time, the .details and the
history of a tax levy?
Schools. . .
The first public buildings to be erect
ed, and in the year 1895. are school
buildings, and it would be wise aud
prudent for the board of school inspect
ors to select the locality in which they
should be built, and then advertise for
tenders of real estate. Let the real
estate hunt the school board.and not the
board hunt the real estate.
Arrangements should be made to
carve out a school year in the manage
ment of school busiLess so as lo con
form to the city fiscal year, which be
gins Jan. 1. As ii is now, the school
year, so-called, runs from September to
September, and creates considerable
Telegraph and Telcphene Poles.
It has been decided affirmatively by
the supreme court of the United Slates
the right of a city to tax telegraph and
telephone poles, and as many of our
streets are thus used and frequently
torn up on this account, it would seem
but fair that these companies should
pay some share at least of maintaining
the streets. In St. Louis the companies
are required to place poles of uniform
size, neatly planed or shaved and paint
ed, and supplied with iron steps up to
the arms supporting the wires, and" for
! the privilege of the streets tne compa
nies pay to the city a percentage of
tlieir income, which nets that city over
.1.000 per month. The city of St". I'aul
pays to tlie telephone company about
I ¥2,000 per year for telephone service in
addition to allowing the company the
use of the streets.
Offices filled by appointment should
expire with the end of the term of the
appointing power. This, then, would
limit the appointments to a period of
two years, instead of four years in some
cases, as at present.
Police and Fire Alarm.
i There does not seem to be any good
i reason for having the expense of two
| separate systems of police and tire
i alarm telegraph, as at present, and
these should be consolidated, thereby
reducing the expenses very much.
After all that has been said about the
city debt, it is a pleasure to report that
it lias been steadily reduced since Jan.
1, 1893, ana the following figures may
be of interest to all our people:
The amount provided for paymeni of
interest on ail certificates of indebted
ness was: . .
Jan. 1, 1593..... $127 541 12
Jan. 1,1893 130.067 08
Jan. 1,1894 109,97750
Jan. 1, 1895.....'. . 91,05250
And on bonds —
Jan. 1, 1892.. .•.'..' .¥411.985 00
Jan. 1, 1893 407,955 00
Jan. 1, 1894 .;........... ...;;. 405.385 00
Jan. 1, 1895.. 403.38500
Or, more biiefly— on Jan. 1, 1892, we
owed ¥539.520.12 for interest duri g the
year 1892, and on Jan. 1, 1895. we will
owe ¥495,37.50. for the year 1895— a re
duction in interest account of ¥44,588.62.
During that period no bonded debt has
been created or renewed.
By reason of circumstances which
need not he referred to here, it is nec
essary annually to anticipate the col
lection of our taxes in order to meet our
current expenses. This is a condition
which could only be remedied by issuing
bonds enough for one year's supply, an
experiment not to be recommended at
Local Assessment Benefits.
Under the • present system of collec
tion of this class of assessments this
work is done through the city treasurer's
office on a warrant from the board of
public works. This should not be any
part of the duty of the city treasurer.
The present system is unnecessarily
expensive, out of date, often places the
property in jeopardy unknown to the
owners, and causes the divine com
mandment against swearing to be
broken more frequently than the Bell
charter Itself: These : assessments
should be placed on the tax roll by the
county auditor, and collected as general
taxes are. , -
As a matter of Interest in this connec
tion the following is submitted, regard
ing the annual salary ofthe county au
ditor and county treasurer of St. Paul,
Minneapolis and Chicago: .

St. Paul, apolis. cago.
County auditor..... $12,000 $8,000 ¥5,000
County treasurer... 12,000 9.500 4,000
in Chicago those officers are paid net
the above amount. In St. Paul antl
Minneapolis the clerk hire is paid out of
the amount named. ; iv Minneapolis the
auditor places on the tax roll all assess
ments for public improvement, and the
same are collected by the county
treasurer, a duty not imposed upon
those officers in St. Paul, but upon the
The Bell Charter.
This rauch-talked-of document has
been ih operation now since March, 1891,
during which period the city has passed
through the greatest financial' crisis of
the century, and it was owing to the
safeguards of this . law •' that the city .
weathered the storm. Time has proven
the wisdom of having enacted it. J am
convinced that our financial system* Qf
issuing certificates in antlcifiat.oh of a
fixed and definite tax levy, and that
only to an 80 per ceut limit, Is one of Its
most admirable . features. - It prevents
the accumulation of idle funds, and it

especially compels all city officers tn

a sound, economical business i-a»-N.
• And this city owes a debt of gratitude
to our legislative delegation ol 1891 for.
their labor and fa l seeing wisdom. Ex
perience proves It was fashioned by a
master hand, by men experienced in
the details not of theoretical, but. of
practical municipal affairs.

M'CARDY IS DOWNED.
CONFESSES IN COURT HIS
Most Sign the Old Pay Rolls 'or
the Janitors of tbe City
Comptroller McCardy had to come
down from his high seat yesterday in
Judge Kelly's court. For several
months he has refused to pay the jani
tors in the court house and city hall,
giving as a reason therefor that the
appointees of President Copeland, of
the assembly, should be given place
upon the joint court house and city hall
committee, and that ihe actions of the
committee were not valid because it
had refused to change its membership
to suit the comptroller and Mr.
Copeland. The committee took the
position that the Democratic as
sembly was a de facto body until the
courts should decide otherwise and
recognized the appointments of Presi
dent Van Slyke. When Mr. Banholzer's
seat in the assembly was made vacant
by decision of the supreme court the
committee recognized VV. li, Johnson as
the appointee from the assembly in his
The janitors went on with their work,
and their bills were audited by the joint
committee. Some of them are men who
were there under the old administra
tion, but Mr. McCardy refused to issue
warrants to pay them, although they
have been kept out of their pay for
several months, and needed the money
tliey had earned. I^B_E*jß
Norman L. Dann applied for a writ of
mandamus several months aeo to com
pel Mr. McCardy. to pay him his salary
for June. The writ was granted. John
H. Ives, attorney for Mr. " Dann, be
sought Mr. McCardy to consent to a
prompt hearing, but he steadfastly
refused and postponed the hearing until
the last moment. The case was set for
trial yesterday before Judge Kelly.
When it was found that further delay
was impossible Corporation Attorney
Chamberlain appeared for Comptroller
McCardy and admitted that there was
do possible defense. Tlie answer of
McCardy was withdrawn, and judg
ment was ordered in favor of Mr. Dann
tor the amount of wages due him for
June. He will now tret his salary for
the subsequent months, and the other
janitors .will secure the money they
have been kept out of for mouths.
