Growing Necessity to KcoiiomUc-Silcct. me n Have Done Well Not ut Fault for ll Extra vungces We Vote, Debt We Order 1'llcd Up Have Doue So Thinir for Patriotic. Ilrattleborrons to Tklnk llf-Ioii ii Ilall Conimlttee'a Report The town report this year will show a net increase of ilnbt of 820, 500 tic sidou soiiio 2,000 more necessary to ad just nnd complete too town house mat tei. We havo paid 85,000 of tho fund ed loan and $1,000 of the bridge bonds, and have borrowed $28,000 for the opera bouse enterprise. g:l,000 for tho vault, and wo oivo a temporary note or i00, borroweu for tlio town general business. Tho delicit in the latter is less than was to be expected from the extraordi nary oxpeuses that havo been incurred. and does not ootuparo unfavorably with the admirable showing of the year pre vioue. The town tax wns five cents larger, giving aom 2,500 more money, ai.il the balance on hand is only $109.11 whoro it was ?1, 743.85 at the beginning of tho year. So tho present board of selectmen have had about i?l,lXH.l more money to handlo than the year previous. Rut on the other hand thev havo paid ?io,UJ ol the bonded debl, which was omitted the year be fire, have spent over ?I,o00 for the est Hrattleboro bridge, 1UU for regrnd- itiK Kullerhill, 200iii the Retreiitwalls, 1,000 fur the town's teams, and have turned over to the road commiBsiouer S801.2S in excess of tho highway tax and besides have had about 1,500 less income from the town hall, in all 5100 of unusual expenses, besides the debt payment. The report shows tho expenses to have been 1000 for bond coupons. 7SIS..'tl for interest on other Joans, 81, KM. 20 for town officers, 92.'!. 43 for the town farm, 1, i:i."t. OT for poor not at the farm, .'!07.;17 for bridges. 471. 8!l for repairs on the Hindsale bridge, .'1IS fur land damages for the West street extension, anil Bilge street widening and 1.'!5 for work on the West street extension, 200 to .Mrs. Kirkland for land damages, 100 paid for settlement of tho Vivier suit, 1.200 to tho Library, 0:i0 for electric light fur Western Avenue, and about 2,000 of miscellaneous bills, besides what went for state taxes Ac. in other worus tho ordinary expenses of run ning tho town are only about 10,000 a year subject to a deduction of 1,01X1 or .1,500 for town hall income. All the rest is represented by interest and debt payments and the "extras" which we persist in voting. When once tve stop piling up new debt and get rid of the old, a town tax of 20 cents will be sulllciunt to run us, and with the highway, school and village expenses, the total tax burden can be cut down close to il on tho grand list, provided at the same timo a reform can be brought about in state affairs to put n end to the grand list tax, which ib withou .. e reuse in addition to the corporation tax, and represents noth ing but extravagance and waste. When this is brought about the town cannot fail to grow and prosper; for nothing helps in this respect so much as low taxes and nothing retards so much as high taxes and debt. This is what men who have the future of Brattleboro at heart should remember and when next time some one bubs up with a scheme to in-ur a lot more of debt just invito him to sit down. It is even more necessary for that individuals to go slow in incurring expenditures, for the eirects are more fai reaching. For the present it seems to us to be good policy to suspend reduction of the bonded debt and devote ourselves to cleaning away this town house debt. because the latter is one that we can not be sure of avoiding trouble with, being illegal from the start, even with! an enabling act by the legislature so j as to market the bonds. I, is one we j are bound by every consideration of honor to pay. and being an honou debt should be cleared away first. There in also a debt of some ri.ooO for the state school tax that must be met this year. This tax c&unot be collected this year, under tho law as fixed by the legislature and as the money collected for it has been used it must be paid out of the gener al fund. It is not a matter for which the presejt administration is in any way to blame. They collected one state school tax and paid one, but it was tho tax of 1895 that they collected and that of 1894 which they paid. We got one year behind in this matter sever al years ago. in 1890. The money which does not have to bo paid till March, being collected the summer previous, anil several years ago wo began to ise it for current expenses, borrowing money to pay it in tho spring, repay ing from the subsequent year's tax. It also seems judicious this year to suspend the appropriation for macadam road. The tax is going to bo heavy ! IIKATTLKHORO HOC1KTV. BKATTLEUOftO KOC'IETV.
