Fremont City Water
'and Light Plant
J'HKMONT, Neb., March .-(Spsc.ll Teles-ram.)
The resirt of Harold Almert. the
Chicago consulting engineer who made an
audit and appraisal of the Fremont mu
nicipal water and Unlit plant for the city
council, presented his report at a special
mooting of the council thla evening-. Too
report covering 180 typewritten rages
showed that the plant has a present value
of $.T77,W and that lo reproduce It new
would' coat Mni.lO). The plant for the
last threa years, the period covered by
the audit, has been operated at a loss
of 121.190. This amount Includes taxes. In
terest ,and depreciation. Without these
Items the plant has made a fair profit
on the original Investment. .
In making the report, Mr. Almert ot-fei-ed
several recommendations In tht
operation of the plant that will reduce
thla deficit In the future. lie suggested
that system of metering the current
used In the various departments be In
stalled In order that a record of the cur
rent produced and the revenue derived
could be ascertained. He aald the plant
Is a model of Ita kind and Is In rendition
fair Interest on the Invest-
nient when tome changes In the method
v. uriaiiuii nave ueen mane.
On the valuation of the riant which
was placed at IfiO.cOO a gross Income of
e'cO.Onu waa derived last year. This Mr.
Alncrrt considered a fair ratio. Figuring
depreciation, taxes and Interest on the
floating debt the report allowed that dur
ing the three years covered by the audit
the water department had been operated
at a profit of iJO.&M. while the electric
diartment ahowed a def.clt of $i,4. .
Mr. Almert and his export accountant.
F. II, Hamilton, spent the afternoon
with the board of public" works and
tiiemliera of the city council gains over
the report. The entire evening was
spent In the council chamber, while a
large number of Interested cltisens lis
tened to the arguments. City Attorney
C. K. Abbott, who hss served several
ears, as legal adviser to the city, during
which time the city plant has been
brought to Its present condition, spent
about three hours questioning Mr. Al
mert and Mr. Hamilton regarding the
methods used In arriving at their fig
ures whereby they showed the plant
operating at a loss. The plant ta charged
alth $6.1X4 taxes, which Is about one
eighth or the total tag paid by the city.
Mr. Abbott pointed out the Injustice to
the plant of tlie system of reckonlnx.
Mr. Almert rejoined by saying that the
taxes were figured on the present value
of tha plant and not what the city had
put into II. The report waa adopted.

WORTH TAKING THE RISK
The conscription of the vast wealth of
the armor, ammunition and steel Inter
ests of the country aa well. If the con
scription of soldiers la to be enforced,
and the abolition of the caste system In

by I. J. Dunn In a spirited talk In op

"If the government can fix the prlr.o

conscription should be applied to property
as well as to life," he asserted. "If the
government ahould decide to Increase the
army and navy, it first step should be to
declare its Independence of the war sup

Time Not Opportune.
"The time Is not opportune for this
nation to engnco In a plan to prepare for
war. If wo icfruin from this policy, at
tho end of the present war, this country
can demand of the belligerents that they
devise a plan which will prevent the out
break of another such wsr. On the other
i and. If we increase our army and nary,
isolated as we are on every side, wflen a
settlement is demanded, they will ask
'Why are you preparing for war?' Kor
the sake of humanity, to render war less
probable, in the future, we ought to wait
even if there Is a risk involved anl
demonstrate the weight of our sincerity
by our own example."
Present Pima Sufficient.
The speaker flouted arguments ad
vanced by tho Navy league, Security
league, and other organizations whh-h ad
vocate preparedness, to the effect that
the present army and navy are inade
quate. The present plan of adding to the
army and navy each year he judged suf
ficient for coast defense. "If the army
and navy aro not equal to that of Ger
many or any other European nation In !
which equal amounts about $3,000,000,000
