BEVEOTE SHRTJTKAOE PROBABLE Xearly Twentr Thonaand Dollar El tended Dnrlnsr i Flrat Two Month of Tear Total neyelpts Eatl mated at f.f.OOO. In making the appropriations for the maintenance of the several department! for the fiscal rear ther city council found that It wouM have fur the "emergency fund." according to the revenue estimated, $l,o. The financial report of City Auditor McAneney for May, the second month of the fiscal year, show that the appropri atlon Tor the "emergency fund" has al ready been overdrawn $507.90. despite the fact that the statute expressly prohibits the lKqln; of warrants against any fund In excess of the appropriation. It la said that the expense of the preliminary work for the new central fire station over In dlan creek at the foot of Bryant street '. paid out of this fund Instead of out of the bridge fund and this accounts for the over draft at this early date. Anticipating a revenue of $47,000, the city council made appropriations to this amount , for the maintenance of .the several depart ments for the fiscal year. The report of City Auditor McAneney shows that In the flrat two months of the year fl9.S8S.S8 has been expended. lit the first two months of the fiscal year there has been expended out of the appropriation of $10,000 for streets and alleys no lesa than $4,901.01. - leaving but $6,098.33 for the remaining ten months. For the fire and police telegraph fund the sum of $2,000 was appropriated for Its maintenance for the year. In the first two months of this period, according to the report of the city auditor. $677.74 has been expended, leaving but ll.322.2d for the re maining ten months. Cksrt of Reekleaaneaa. Said a city official yesteday, "the city council appears to be entirely reckless In Its expenditures this year, regardless of the fact that It la extremely doubtful If the the revenue upon nhlrh the appropriations were based, will be realised. In the first two months of the fiscal year already some of the funds are In a badly depleted condition, while on at least Is overdrawn. This Is not as It should be, considering that that It Is prolable that the revenue will fall short from the amount antici pated owing to the agitation against the saloons. If th councllmen will look over the books of the city clerk they will find that about ten saloons owing to this agita tion have already gone out of business and It Is easy to figure out the loss of revenue to the city from this source. Then again the councllmen would do well to look over the report of fines and forfeitures covered Into th city treasury from the police court ts compared with recent years and with what they figured on when estimating the revenue for the fiscal year. The condition cf the finances at the end of the first two months of the fiscal Is such as to warrant the municipal authorities to 'sit, up and take notice.' " I loir Arroants Stand.

ALL COWS MIST BE TEITKO Sentiment of Conference Against lie alrln Paatenrtaat Ion f Milk. "It Is Immaterial to m whether the milk Is brought to my house In a bottle or In a basket, so long as th cows from which It comes are tested," declared Mayor Maloney, who presided at th conference last night between th city officials and th dairymen over th proposed milk ordinance. "All cows from which milk is sold in th city, whether by dairymen or Individuals, should be tested for tuberculosis and th owners compelled to comply with the sani tary regulations of th Stat Board of Health. Is all that ts necessary at this time," opined City Health . Officer Bower. "I do not believe It would be feasible to requlr th pasteurisation of all milk sold In th city, but I would Insist on all eowe, whether owned by regular dairymen or Individuals, be thoroughly tested by a competent person." said City Physician Tubbs. The conference was attended by Mayor Maloney. Councllmen Jensen. Morgan and Skodrholm. City Solicitor Klmhalt, I"r. Tubbs, Sanitary Officer Peter smith. Quarantine Officer Macrae, Deputy Stat Dairy Inspector Lenox, President Taylor and several members of the recently or ganised Palrymens' association. The dlRcussion which, followed the read ing by City Solicitor Kimball of the draft of an ordinance, which he is preparing took a wldo range and dealt with practically every phase of the milk business and the best means to ensure pure milk. The discussion was more or less Informal and while nothing definite was determined, many good points for the proposed ordi nance were obtained. Another meeting will probably be held a soon a Mr. Kimball has his ordinance completed and before It Is presented to the city council. As the matter now Is, the ordlnanc will provide for the tenting of all cows owned by dairymen and individuals who sell milk and will requlr all persons selling milk to be licensed.
