It is time for municipal as well as nersonal economy. Money should only be expended for those things that are needed. Any violation of this rule is unwarranted extravagance, in view of the fuct that the city now owns and has paid for a tall, hose hoose. a.oui fet nf hrw.i and nearly all equipments for tire department, scrapers and all necessary tools for street work our bridge tax all paid, with strict cconomv tn every branch.
