nbout J.hls department of tho city j
govornnient. Ask your Councilman
bout it. He will toll you to vote for
the bonds. Ho will toll you that tho
wator ratos Is just sufflclont to pay
serious, Thoro Is just ono pump be
tween tho prcsont condition and a
comploto shutdown of tho plant. Un
sanitary conditions provull In somo
parts of tho city because- tho residents
of thoso parts do not havo city water
nnd cannot bo served until the mains
are extended. In othor parts, tho
lorvlco is poor bocauso of too small
mains. Tho fire station needs atten
tion. Tho Income from the prcsont
watr rates Is Just sufficient to pay
tho running oxponsos. With tho do
oUno in prices of coal and materials,
a different condition will exist. Until
then, thoro docs not seem to bo any
other way of mooting tho .emergency,
except ,to glvo tho Mayor and Council
added funds for improvements and
ropalrs. Tho only way to got these
funds Ih by Issuing bonds. Wo should
got back of tho city government nnd

will satisfy purchasers that tho people
of North Platto aro behind these
brtnds. Thou thoy will soil and work
