MORE LICENSE TAXES URGED. A Child l-'nllt Out or n Second Story Wlmlow IJoiinil to Stop Illegal Ono Don-Tax I'ald In n Vrnr. The .Mayor's A tin tin I. At thu meeting of the city council last night Mayor Uronowcg delivered his an nual message , the substance of which was as follows : ( icntlcincnnf the Council : In accordance - anco with tlio provisions of law and nsigo : I wish to present my annual state ment of tht : condition of the all'uirs of thu city , in connection with the reports ot the several city ollicors together with Mich recommendations as they have sug gested to inc. For full particulars I refer to their reports , which .should receive the most careful examination at your hands in order to arrive at a , correct under standing of the city's condition , and to ascertain the liabilities and resource ? . The unnu.il reports of tlie city's oilicers should show the standing of the city , the satno as when an inventory is made of a business house. 1 am glad to say the finances are ut pros unt in a satisfactory condition , although the outlook for thu future Is not as bright a.s I would wish it. The general bonded indebtedness is 117.100 , none of which matures during the ensuing fiscal year. The annual interest on the sumo is $10-183. The treasurer's report shows u balance in this fund of $ tl , < ii : ) , and the tux for 1880 not yet collected is if * , : ) 10. This will leave u balance during the next fiscal year of $8,500 , which should be sot apart to bo used in taking up part of the bonds issued for the loan of 1883 which are redeemable at the option of the city after live years from their issue. Wo have $78,500 intersection paving bonds outstanding , annual interest $1,710. This fund is overdrawn $2,370. The tax for 1H8G uncollected , $ > 7,3JO , is ample to meet this. The annual interest on the $15,000 outstanding intersection sewer and Indian creek sewer ditch bonds is $2,700. The treasurer's books show u bulanco of $2,700 , just snllicient to pay this interest. So that the tux of 1880 of about $7,000. is Millicicnt to extend our sewerage system this season , For each of these funds the luw authori/.es a speciul tux of 2 mills each for interest ; also a 2 mill sinking fund tax for gradual extinction of bonds for intei section paving and sow- ering ; the bonds so issued are not u purt of the general bonded indebtedness which has a constitutional limit of 5 per cunt on the assessed valuation. Balance in sink ing fund is $7,000 ; duo from tuxes , about the sumo amount , which , ufter redeeming the $ 1,000 maturing bonds , u balance of $10,000 will be loft. If this oun be trans ferred _ to the general bond fund tempo rarily it could be used to advantage to take up the bonds of 1883. The annual interest ou outstanding improvement bonds is $10,851 and bonds maturing next year amounts to $8,500 ; total , $ UI,3.)1. On hand , $1,150 , and taxes duo for 1880 is about f 1-1,000 , which shows a discrep ancy of $1,000 , which must bo provided for. As the- money to pay this is derived from direct taxation against abutting property , it looks us if the tuxes should bo fully sullieient to pay said interest and redeem the bonds when they mature. The cunse of this present shortage is attribu ted to the fact that several enterprising citizens have refused to pay their paving tux and even enjoined the county treas urer restraining him from selling their property. 1 understand much of this prop erty lias changed hands and matters may right themselves shortly. The general expenses huve boon h-ss thun the year " 80- ' 8U or ' 8i-87 ( in all departments showing n saving of $11,000 , no doubt to this cause is duo the advance in general fund war rants. There arc still $55,000 general fund outstanding warrants. If the ex penses next year are the same the out standing warrants will then amount to $113,001) , ) and all wit huve in sight to puy this is the uncollcctcd tax of about $30- , 000. Last yeai $5,000 cash was collected for the police tunil but this source of rev enue has by a lute decision of the courts been destroyed und wo can hope from no income from this mode of taxation. If mutters should bo allowed to go on in this wuy , we would lind ourselves in a year from now with u floating indebted ness of the general fund o ! about $77,000. This would cause city warrants to bo GOc or 70o and cause therefore an increase in the expenses so that the total amount of out standing warrants would reach $85,000 or $1)0,0111) ) . This should bo avoided at all hazards and ways should bo devised for raising a revenue sutlicicnt to meet cur rent expenses and if possible bring the general fund to a cash basis. By ( loing this the running expenses could bo re duced from 10 to 20 pur cent bv the sav ing of interest nnd by increasing the pur chasing value of warrants. The general fund might bo brought to a cash basis by bonding the outstanding warrants , biit this would bo only n temporary relief , as the 10 mill tux loyy for general purposes is insufficient to meet oxpemliiures. I think the expenses ought not to exceed the income , and if they cannot bo cut lower then the taxes should bo increased in some way. The expenses of the city cannot bo re duced unless we stop improvements , de crease our police and lire departments and cull n general halt. This would meet the views of only a few people ; it should not bo thought of , much less done. The future of Council Ulufl's is so bright that wo must continue to improve. I would recommend that an ordinance be enacted imposing a license tax on busi ness men , tradesmen , professional men , hotel keepers , shop keepers , eto. I am confident that about $25,000 might thus bo raised without great hardship to any one ; many would bo reached who haye altogether escaped taxation before. The mayor then quoted from the in augurals of other mayors , showing that DCS Moines and other cities in the state were meeting with the same dilll- cultlcs with which Council UlnfTs is wrestling. Ho concurred in the recom- nicmltttiou of the city marshal for the improvement of thu city jail and the putting of the patrol wagon into service He culled attention to the high price ot gas and urged that an effort bo made to got bettor light for less money. In speak ing of the parks ho predicts that this city will excel any other city west of Chicago in a few years. Ho regretted that tlio park levy was not larger. Fell From a Whitlow. The little foiir-.vtmr-old son of J. K. McCrucken met with r. serious accident while playing around his homo on South Sixth street. The little fellow fell out ol a second story window to the ground , and when picked up was in an uncon scious condition and evidently badlj hurt. Dr. Hunchett was called nnd found that one of the child's thighs was broken , there was also u severe wound on tin fort'lieail. It appears that the little one would have bcou killed outright had 11 not been for his first falling upon trellis and then to the ground. Muitcal Novelties. On Wednesday afternoon and cvonlnc Andre's Alpine Choir and Tyrolcso com pany will appear at the opera house This is the lirst appearance hero of thii company , they musing their initial toui of this country. The Hoston Journa says of them ; "Tho .music is of thu peculiar Swiss character that from its very uniqueness is enjoyable , and that hai , moreover , in itself charms for the most cultivated ear. The xithcr , the Alpine viola , the mandolin , the dulcimer , the gigillrn and the other Instruments of the mountain country were heard In their sweet , soft strains , while the singing in cluded that famous jodelling which only the college societies have as yet made familiar. The odd , falsetto nourishes of the jodel are always captivating. The continued applause that greeted the artists showed that their performance was appi eciated. A Lonesome Taxpayer. The annual report of the city clerk shows that the tax was paid on only ono dog during the past year. The total re ceipts to otl'sot the expense of wroeuring tags and blanks for this lieoii'o fund , was the sum of $1 paid on one solitary canine. "And that dog died , ' ' remarked .John Hurke , the deputy clerk as he fur nished the item. "Ho couldn't stand it , to think that he was the only dog in the city , who had a license tag on his collar , it broke his heart. " In view of the show ing of the pa < < t year it does not seem that the now city council would bo instilled in planning many improvements on the basi" of what is to come in from this branch of the license system. Illuual A fund is being raised among those in terested in having the lisii and game laws enforced. It is the purpose to use this fi nd in the prosecuting of those who violate late the law in regard to tishing es pecially. One-half the line goes to the informer under the statute , and to this is to bo added $10 from the fund also. Those concerned in the move intend to put n stop to wholesale fishing , and will soon open up the war. They intend to give the public a fair warning , and al ready have their eyes set on some viola tions , which they say , if not stopped , they will call into court. I tea I Katntf ) Transfers.

Another Mitlo Wair. Another instance of heartless desertion has come to light whore another young babe has boon left to the tender mercies of strangers. Last Saturday night Mrs William Morris , No. 407 Willow avenue sent her husband out in the rear yan about 8 o'clock to take some blankets down that she had left out to air. Liku i dutiful husband , William , although tirci out after his day's labor , did as his wife bid him. On reaching the yard he dis covered the blankets had been piled in : in thu clot lies basket. As ho stoopet down to raise the basket ho discovered : young baby. ' 1 he sight was too much for him ; ho turned from the child and went into the house , wi.iiro he informed his wife , who told him to brine tht child in. It was then discoverec to bo a boy baby about four weeks old. As Mr. anil Mrs. Morris have no children of their own , they concluded that the child would receive proper care at their hands , nd in con&cquunco wil probably ndopl it. A HBK man called at the Morris home last uight and learned the above particu Jars. Mr. Morris has for several year been in thu employ of L. Kirscht & fLo.

There seems to bo a great deal of doubt lovcring about the Richmond lire and Tiolico alarm system , which has just boon ' | ) 'ut in hero. Is it all right ? That query s heard on all sides. The company seems to have offered everything that is fair and square , the city having had abundant opportunities to test it in its details. The strongest sorts of guarantees arc also offered f or the future. Still there seems to bo a lingering doubt , and the query arises whether the feeling of un certainty is due to the talk of rivals or from some real causes of apprehension. In this connection , it is interesting to note lengthy articles in a recent issue of the Los AngelesTribune. The substance of these articles is that thn system is there considered unfavorably. ThoTrib- line , editorially , speaks ot the "undeni able failure1' of the system there. Inter views with the chief and others connected with the lire department are severe in their criticisms of the system. It seems that thorn have been numerous dilHeultics encountered , and the system has de manded numerous changes and constant repairs , but whether it will eventually prove a success , seems to be a question there.
