Dated November 2S, 1S9.
For more tlian a week now the puli
hc cistern has been empty and the steam
pump silent. Many of the private cis
terns are empty and others nearly so and
still no move has been made by the
town board toward remedying the evil.
Wlien a-sked if anything was being done
in tlie matter tlie simple reply of 'noth
ing," is tlie only answer, and true
enough it seem. When asked the rea
son, the reply is, "If tlie
. . i i n""r-
to kick on tlie levy and say it is illegal
ami reiu.se to iy their taxes, we cannot
get work done and pay for the same with
town warrants." It is quite generally
known that the city treasury is depleted,
and for what? Partly for necessary ex
lenses, partly for unnecessary exenses
and partly for -salaries that amounted to
the height of extravagance and fol ly.
The first official act by the new board
last sprint: was to create all the salaried
offices possible, fill them, and make the
salary of each as high as the fieople
could possibly be expected to stand
higher by twice or thrice than they hiul
ever Ix-en liefore. In order to meet this
unnecessaary expense the number of
mills levied for taxes was made more
than twi as high as the outside limit
of the law will allow. What is the re
sult? The ieople rightly refuse to pay
an excess of taxes simply to give wmie
one a good fat salary. If the funds were
all judicially expended toward improve-
ing the town, as they should be, it is
quite likely that them would be no ob
jection to the amount of taxes levied,
but when a board has once been trusted
with funds which they failed to apply
properly, it cannot be expected that the
people will make any donations simply
for them to monkey with. If there is a
hoard in whom the people have confi
dence, and who will work in the interest
of improvement and advancement there
will be nodilficulty in raising the ne
cessary funds to carry on any needed
