proximately $1.25 pei annum.
It has been tho policy of the city
during tho past year to furnish as
much employment as possible, through
tho construction of needed public im
provements, to offset tho lull in pri
vate building and enterprise. Whether
this policy will bo continued through
out the present season, will bo deter
mined by tho result of this election,
as apparently tho paving work under
construction will bo completed some
time during July.
As tho officals of tho city merely
wish to carrry out tho will of tho
voters, It is hoped that a full expres
sion Avlll bo given at this election. If,
further paving is contemplated in
near future, there aro several consid
erations that arguo for it at this time.
Thoro Is still a need for work to
open up. The organization for tlie
work Is perfected and working
smoothly. Before the present contract
was let, tho contractor agreed to sub
mlt bids, for any other paving this
year at prices not greater than tho
present contract. Our present work
Is being done at practically pro-war
prices and is lower than any placo in
tho state, being at a figure about 35
cents per yard loss than Kearney, for
tho same construction.
From the figures above quoted, it
does not appear that any Individual
tax payor will bo either hurt or help
ed to any important extent, and tho
general wellfaro of tho city should be
tho main consideration in mind, In
voting for or against theso bonds,
rather than any personal advantage
or disadvantage, as tho outcomo will
probably bo of considerable Importance
in determining tho lmmcdiato future
of tho city. Respectfully,
E. II. EVANS, Mayor.
