Editor TrlbunSr I notice by The
Trlbuno that the city council will Mib
mlt at the April election a proposltioA
to vote bonds for water nnd sower ox
tenblons, and this early I want to go
on record as favoring such bonds fot
extension purposos. While I havo no
property which will bo bonofitted by
such extensions, and ronlizo that with
the amount of business property I
own that my taxes will be increased,
ypt I bellovo that wo should play fair
with those who do not havo water an"
sower sorvico nnd by making thba,e
extensions givo them tho convanloncos
which the rest of us enjoy. I will do
all I can to help carry tho proposition,
and I bellevo It is the duty of every
other citizen to do so, thus giving
tho outlying rosldonce districts water
for fire and domestic purposes and the
advantages and conveniences which
accrue from sewage.
