MORE CITY BONDS ARE SOLD
City Treasurer True Announce. Ele
of Twenty Thousand Block.

C ry Treasurer True yesterday announced
th wale if the $JV0"O worth of city bonds
authorized by the council to pay the bal
ance due on the new central f.re station
and to settle th bill of S,500 for the new
arc.al fire truck. The bonda were sold
to the Harris Trust and Savings bank of
t'hlcapo at a premium of I17S and ac
cumulated Interest. The purchasers also
agreed to furnish the blank bonds to de
fray the cost of a leal opinion as to the
validity of the bond Issue. The bunds
draw 4'-j per cent and run ten years. City
Treasurer True rsards the Bale as a very
advantageous one and also as indicating
the hlKh credit of the city.
The necessity for Issuing bonds In times
of prosperity such as the city lias enjoyed
for several years has been the cause of
some comment, but City Treasurer Trite
declares that this email Issue is not at all
"Of the hundreds of thousands of dollars'
worth of city bonds Issued In the past and
which we are still paying, the city hss
now absolutely nothing to show for the
expenditures represented by the Issues, and
the new fire station and the truck will be
ths only evidence In .after years that the
tapsers ever got anything for their
money," said Mr. True. "The fire station
and the big truck, since the wisdom of the
council decided it to be necessary, had to
be paid for, and bonds at low Interest nnd
short time was the best method of raising
the money. More than 2n0,000 of the old
bond Issue which we are now paying was
for current expenses when the receipts fell
far ahort of expenditures. We have cer
tainly nothing now to ehow for the ex
penditure of the money except our good
credit. The bonds Issued for Intersection
paving belong to the same class. The Inter
sections are worn out and are being re
placed. Expenditures requiring bond Issues
li. the future must be of such a nature
that tangible and visible results are ob
tained." The bonds were held by E. Q. Lougee,
b took them from Contractor Ueorge
F. Hughes after the completion of t
building. The contractor required payment
at the rate of A per month for a period
of twenty years. The Hughes bid waa
about :i,000 lower than that of his nearest
competitor, and hla cash offer for the work
waa 13.400 less than the time price. The
city would thus have saved nearly one
third of the cost If the bond Issue had
been made before the structure was built
and the cash offer accepted.
