H. E. Pond resigned tho office ot wa
ter commissioner and city marshal this
week. The council recently passod a
resolution compelling the wator commis

tion ot back wator tax. Mr. Pond,
knowing tho condition of tho peoplo,
thought the resolution extreme and
handod in hie resignation. Ot course,
if tho city can forco the collection of
this tax at this time, all right, but it will
be a hardship to many, novertholees.
There are times whon peoplo can pay
and there aro times when thoy can not,
and this U ono ot tho times whon
they can not.
Thv Kuimoii Why.
At a recont mooting of tho council, a
lnipo batch of bills woro allowed and
vmm rants wero drawn for them, but, on
tho advico of City Attorney Gilliam, tho
major refused to put his signature to
them. Tho haphazard manner of doing
tho city's business herotoforo has boon
stopped, and tho present mayor nnd
council aro trying to put tho business in
ship-shape. Below wo give the messngo
of Mayor Bontloy to tho council on tho
Gontlomon of tho City Council:
I am informed by tho city attorney
that tho occupation tax collected bv thu
city can only bo used under Ordinance
No. .'15, for tho following purposes (pco
ordinance). I am also informed by hi,m
that no part of tho Konornl fund of tho
city should bo applied tc tho payment
of claims arising out of tho operation of
tho city wator works system.
Also that no warrant should bo drawn
in oxcees of eighty-live por cent of tho
current lovy for which it is drawn, un
less thoro is suflicient money in tho
treasury belonging to tho proper fund
for its paymont.
Against this several funds, there aro
outstanding accounts aggregating up
wnrds of 400o. Of courso, theeo obll
gallons ought not to havo been contract
ed, because, thoy arc, or seem to be, in
cxcesHof 85 per cont of tho levy under
which thoy woro intondod. But tho
city, hnvinjr received valuo for thorn, it
is its duty to provido somo way for their i
paymont. J no question is, now should
it be done ? Should wo do as form or
city councils havo been doing issuo or
ders nnd warrants against the present
year'H lovy to pay last year's dobtB ? or
Hltould wo apply this year's lovy exclus
ively to this year's obligations or busi
ness, and make some provision for bor
rowing money to pay up this M500 or
$1000 floating dobt ? In my judgment,
tho lnttor is tho host courso to pursue
City warrants are now at u discount of
15 por cont whon thoy ought to bo nt
par, and would bo except for our out
With our warrants worth 85 centa and
drawing 7 per cont on their par value,
the city is roally paying In tores t on its
debts nt tho rato of 22 por cont. It is
certainly not good business policy.
Among the accounts allowed at your
last meeting, and for which I am re
quested to sign warrants, aro those of
the formor inombora ot this council for
salaries, and that ot tho engineer in
charge ot tho city water works engine
for WBgoB, and othors. Now, theao
claims aro just and should bo pnid, But
to pay thorn out of this year's lovy
moans to still further put oil tho day of
our return to a cash bas'id. I have,
thorefore, concluded it my duty to lay
tho matter plainly boforo tho city coun
cil so that thoy may have a full under
standing of it, and I shall then bo gov
ornod by thoir advico as to whether I
should sign tho warrants or not. M. R.
Thore is not the least doubt but what
tho poople ought to bavo their monoy,
nnd if tho present levy is not accessible
for outstanding indebtedness, the city
should borrow the money nnd pay tho
warrants at once.

A fow years ago, Mr. Wm. McAvoy of
this city was found dead in bed. Ho
had boon sick for a number of weeks,
howovor. We only mention this to show
a coincidence. His wifo, Mrs. Kato Mc
Avoy, who was well known in Red
Cloud, and who recently moved to hor
farm near Womor, Kansas, whoro sho
lived alone, was found dead in her bod
last Sunday morning, having evidently
boon dead several days when discovered
by her noighbors. Hor mind waa evi
dently unbalanced, caused by many
troubles nnd caroa during tho latter part
of hor lifo. Sho would not allow her
f rienda or noighbors to visit her, and in
hor lono cabin sho lived and died. The
causo ot hor death is unknown, but it
waa probably boart diaoaso that took her
off. Kind hands laid tho body at rest
near tho promises, and tolegraphod her
daughters, Mrs. Anson Higby and Mrs.
Minnio Luttridge ot Doadwood, who
camo Monday, accompanied by Mr. Hig
by. Mrs. McAvoy was a most estimablo
lady, and her sudden demise is to bo re
gretted. Her childron nnd friends bavo
the sympathy of our people in their bo-roavomont.
