IT CONTAINS IMPORTm SUGGESTIONS TO
Adequate Water Supply and Kqultable
Assessment of Heal E.tnte Itccem-

The June meeting of city councils was
held en Wednesday evening. In select
councils there were present: Messrs. Kris

Schutn, White, Wise and Leng, president.
Tlie reading of the minutes of the May
meeting was dlspen sod with.
Mr. Kverts presented the following an
nual message from ills Hener Mayer
Clark : '
Te the Honorable, the flelcct ami Common Own-
ell of Ixineaiter Viti:

In obedience te that direction, I beg

It it Interesting and satisfactory te note
that almost tlie entire Indebtedness of the
city bcirlng a higher rate of Interest than
four per cent, has been covered Inte the
sinking fund ; and net only has the perma
nent bended debt of the city gradually
decreased, but the drain upon the current
revenue te pay Intercst en the municipal
bends has steadily diminished. Although
812.1,000 was voted threo years nge ler
needed water works improvements, the
actual net increase in the bended city debt
within that period has been only JTiS.OOO.
tjii: WATEB suri'i.v.
In view of this showing it is worth con
sideration whether the great body of our
citizens are net ready te consider the
expediency of approving, by popular vote,
the expenditure necessary te provide that
ample and increased water storage capacity
which seems te be the natural supplement
te adequate pumping facilities.
Of all the subjects which ongage the at
tention of tlie municipal governmeut, that
of chief concern and general interest is the
water supply. Ne otlier Is se closely ro
uted te our financial condition, our physi
cal comfort ami business prosperity. The
present revenues from water rents net
only pay all expense of maintenance and
operation, n large Interest en Improve
ments, but besides, far mere than the In
terest en the entire city delit. These
revenues are contributed directly and in
directly by the whole people. Though
assessed directly upon real estate,
they nre actually borne alike by
land owner and router, and all classes and
conditions et citiens are entitled te a re
turn for their contiibtitleus. It has been
the common experience and testimony of
my predecessors that well considerod
water works improvements always piy
u most abundant return upon their cost.
As indicated in my previous communica
tions te councils, ft is none tee early, In
nir judgment, te consider tbe questions of
raising the stand pipe, or of erecting a new
storage reset veir en the high ground in
the west end, and of making such altera
tions In tlie connections of the distributing
mains as will furnish au unfailing and
copious supply of water te oery part of
the city. It will at least cost llttle te pro
cure plans and est' 'utes mid te devlse
ways und means te iiUct a question that is
pressing with cerluinty upon tbe munici
pality. With the pumping power new
provided, Mid the necessity for running
it continuously, an increase of storage
capacity would be atteuded with boneli beneli
cent results far in excess of its proportion
Tlir. vioati.ne nraiT.
While the condition of the bended In
debtedness of tlie city is, upon the whole,
se satisfactory. I feel bound te call the at
tention of ceuirclis ten considerable amount
of floating Indebtedness which must be
provided for. I'pen examination of the
approved bills of the several departments
whose appiopriatiens for the fiscal year
ending June 1, lb'.Ki, nre exhausted, I find
that the following amounts remain unpaid:
Uradlng and guttering .
Itepalrs of Htnets ,
Water works general
Fire eepartineut general...
Printing and stationery.
Htreet work (estimated)
. sun 4t
Total Se,S01 3D
The deficiencies T ostimnte will make a
total of net les-t than $l,uoe. Ne prevision
is made therefer in the eiidiiig ordluance
making appiopriatiens ler the fiscal year
1890-1B!U. Iain firmly orthe opinion that
they must be met by a distinct appropria
tion te cover deficiencies; and under the
law, I have no authority te draw warrants
for expenses of the year of 18-30-1800 upon
appropriations made te meet the oxpenses
of 1890-18U1. Whatever appropriations
councils soe fit te make for the present
fiscal year I shall regard as limited te tbe
expenses of the scvcial departments for
tbis year only; and It will &ave future
embarrassments for councils te meet these
deficiencies at ence.
The large sums of money required te be
annually spent for street repairs ought te
have impressed upon the city government
the superiority et durable street linprovo linprevo linprove
rdVnts. I ronew my previous recommen
dations that some equitable system of ap
portioning the street appropriations based
en the tax contributed by ditlercnt sections
of the city should guide and govern tlie ex
penditures of the afreet department. As
much as possible of the extraordinary reve
nues derived from liquor licenses ought te
be applied te pormauent street Improve
ments, ami whllotherels urgent demand
from nianv quarters for work of various
kiiids I shall steadily reUt every attempt
te increase expenditures in encessef the
amounts appropriated for the several
classes of street work for the coming year.
Council cannot tee closely supervise the
character of the work done.
TJIE FinK DEPAItTMi:.VT.
I have had recent occasion te commend
the fidelity nd efficiency of the present
fire department, and te recommend te
councils that Its iiimlis be uniformed.
In consideiatien of thlsaPde-rihc necessity
of Its members being en duty day and
night, eveiy day of tlieye.tr, a inoderate
increase et their eoinpeiiwtlen is jietan
unreasonable expectation. Councils have
ordered tbe muiiiac of an additional en
gine heuse; but until the prent dellclen.
cies arising from tbe ex 11 lug floating debt
of the city are provided for and the strin
gency of municipal finances Is relieved,
the expense of organizing an additional
tire company might net, in mv judgment,
be ventured upon.
uuiiTiNu or thu crrv.
The lighting or the city has upon the
whole been satisfactory j but with the
power at the city's command at its pump
ing stations tlie preposition that It be em
ployed at night Jn furnishing tbe light for
the streets should net be lest sight of.
The law department of the city ha, becn
efficient and diligent, as little vexatious or
expensive litigation has been engaged
upon. The demand of the county for the
payment te It of a large claim in behalf of
street damages has been referred te the
courts for adjudication and le net likely te
be settled for some years.
Tlie police force manlfests a geed stale of
discipline and of efficiency : and the sta
tion house, City hall and ether municipal
property are in excellent condition. An
ambulance the gift of private charity la
seen te be added te the city's appliances for
useful public work ; and at no distant day
a patrol wagon, te be put at the service
of the police department, may be found
te be a valuable adjunct.
The various relief funds within control of
the city authorities are intact, and the geed
uses they serve ought te stimulate ether
The necessity and advantage of a public
park occupying and opening te thepeople
some of the eligible sites near the city ha v e
come te be subjects of Increasing popular
interests. While mere immediate practical
concerns for the preient must absorb all
the available revenues from taxation, It is
net tee much te hope that private generos
ity may be supplemented by public aid and
co-operation te tbe end that an object ae
esseutlal te the moral elevatien and mate
rial welfare of Lancaster's citizens, as a
spacious pleasure ground, may be realized.
The prospective establishment of a beard
of health meets with popular favor.
A mere equ liable assessment of property
for city taxation Is a subject that should
have the early attention et councils.
livery consideration of convenience and
a just regard for political morality demand
a districting of the city wards Inte voting
precincts. Experience proves that from 250
te 350 lu an ample number of votes te be
accommodated at one poll, and yet In this
city as many as 1,000 votes are cast at one
window In some of the larger wards, and
in none of them less than 450. Council
should take measures te precinct the city
at as early a period as possible.
In connection witli every project for the
liberal Improvement of our city must be
berne steadily In mind the necessity for
close attention te the policy of making no
permanent debts te meet current oxpenses,
and no expenditures in excess of the ap
propriations. The total budget of expenses
for the year must be kept within the certain
inceme j and every outlay of public money
must be made with au eye te tbe public
advantage. Te meet the perplexing re
sponsibilities of city government and te
discliarge them faithfully is no mean task ;
and in the effort te this end councils may
be continually assured of my hearty co
operation. Bebkiit Clark, Mayer.
The reports of the water,preperty,fiiiance
nnu nre commiiieos ier tue inenui ei .uay
were presented. The report of the water
cemmittee was approved, after striking
out the recommendation directing the re
moval of a lathe Irem the old te the new
waterworks. The recommendation of the
preperty committee te rent part of the
City hall te Newsdealer Maulgan was
approved. These were all the recommen
dations contained In the above report.
Mr. Krlsman presented a a petition, nu
merously signed, praying councils te pass
an ordinance Increasing the salary of the
drivers in the 11 re department.
FOR 1-KIOfANENT IMI'ltOVKUENTS.
Mr. Erisman introduced the following
An ordinance for the purpose of obtaining
the assent of the electors et the city of Lancas
ter te the Increase of the Indebtedness of said
city of Ianeaster for the permanent Improve
ment of certain streets In said city.
HFCTIOKI. He It ordained by the select and
common councils of the city of 1-ancuster, that
for the purpose of paving with Belgian blocks
the foUewluir streets lu said city, viz: l'rlnce
street, from Frederick teOerman; Heutli Uueen
street, from Centre Square te Vine ; North
Queen, from Chestnut te James ; James, from
North Queen te Prince, and Chestnut street,
from Prince te Duke, and ethers, If practicable,
the Indebtedness or the city of Lancaster be in
creased lu the sum of one hundred and twenty
live thousand dollars.
Hue. 'J. That for the purpese of obtaining the
assent of the electors of said city of Lancaster
for such Increase of Indebtedness an election
shall be held at the places a'ud between the
hours of holding the municipal election lu suld
"" en the third Tuesday lu February, A. 1).
bk.c.3. Tnnt theiniyoref said city shall give
30 days notice by weekly advert Iseuientx lu the
Lancaster Ummlner, intelliciekckii, .; a
of the time of holding such election, and wild
notice shall also contain such ether matters as
are required by the uctef assembly passedAprll
20, 1874, in such cases uiadeand provided.
Mr.L'risman,Iu support of the erdinance,
said the money could be borrowed at 4 per
cent., which would tnake the annual inter
est the first year $5,000, and it would be
less each year. Thore Is $15,000 annually
appropriated for street purpose. He would
firopeso te pay off f 15,000 each year, less
be interest, and in eleven years the city
would bave excellent pormauent stroels
and the lean paid. Under the present
Hvhtem ? 15,000 are spent each year and
there Is scarcely anything te show for the
THE CITY FINANCES.
The report of the city treasmer for the
month showed the receipts te be $0.2,737.69;
payments, $0,072.74; balance In treasury,
Select council erdinance Ne. C, appropri
ating the public moneys for the ensuing
your, was called up.
When the item appropriating $1,000 te
tlie beard of health was reached Mr. Me
Comsey offered an amendment reducing
the amount te $500 and appropriating the
remaining $500 te street repairs. IIe said
no council had before appropriated se large
a sum and with a city se healthy as Lan
caster he large an amount as $1,000 is net
Mr. Wise felt like Mr. McComsey, that
$1,000 was tee large a sum, but an amend
ment of the ordinance te-night meant de
lay, when it was important that the appro
priation erdinance should be a law ; at any
tlme hereafter $500 can be taken from the
beard of health appropriation and trans
ferred te some ether.
Mr. McCemsey said he would rather de
lay the ordinance a month than piss it If it
was iinpre)er in his judgment. The ap
propriation te the beard of health was net
se piessing as ether city matters.
Mr. Middle said that a yoarage tbe daily
papers sat down en councils because they
refused te make au appropriation te the
beard of health. The pcople of the city,
through tbe press, Insisted that a certain
annronriatlen should be mode te the health
department. The sum of $1,000 is tee small
for the duties of a beard of health. It may
net spend half of $1,000 but he did net
think $1,000 would cover its expenses. If
we have no epidemic It is very easy te
transfer part of tliis appropriation te seme
otlier. The public demand a beard of
health and ll Is useless te etnhlish it with
out giving It funds. Afailurote give the
beard a sufficient apntepriut en Is a stroke
at tlie health of the city.
Mr. McComsey said he did net want te
be considered as opposing the beard of
health. The city ought te have one, but he
considered $00 a reasonable sum.
The amendment reducing tlie appropria
tion te $500 was defeated and the ordinance,
as reported by the finance commute-, wjs
adopted. Common council concurred.
THE FIIIEME.V PAY.
Tbe ordinance introduced at the May
meeting, increasing the salary of drhers
lu the fire department te $50 per month,
was culled up.
Mr. Krlsman offered au amendment
refcrrlng the erdinance te the finance com cem cem
mitteo, te report an erdinance Increasing
tbe pay of the members of the fire depart
ment, restricting the total amount el in
crease te $1,500.
The amendment was adepted, and that

The adoption of the recommondatien te
pave Grant street from lmke te Court

thought that te pave only that part of the

thought the wbole square should be paved
and there worn ethers that need much mero,
for instance the first square of North Prince
street. The motion te disapprove was lest.

On motion of Mr. Altlck, It was ordered

the words "care of the sick peer" shall

Mr. Altlck also moved te Insert the fol

When tbe erdinance In regard te the pro

was read, tlie question was raised
whether a non-residont could ceme te

IIe Is Trylwr te (Jet Select Councilman
Some tlme age a communication appoared
In the iVcw i.'u, which made tlie startling
announcement that Select Councilman
Everts is new residing in the Second ward,
although serving as a roprusentative of the
Seventh. This was known te many of tlie
councilman, as well as Mr. Everts' friends,
and the man who wrote the communica
tion knew as well as anybody olse that
Mr. Everts Is only temporarily residing lu
the Second ward, and will go back us seen
as possible te tbe Seventh. Last night Jere
Itohrer, of the solect branch, brought the
matter up and M r. Kverts at ence tendered
his resignation, and made a straightfor
ward ex planattieu of his situation, which
was satisfactory te everybedy but Itohrer.
Ne action was taken en the resignation.
Mr. Everts has made an excellent coun
cilman, and is popular, net only with the
people of his ward, whose interests he
leeks after closely, but with cotincllmen of
both parties. Many people would llke te
knew why Majer llelirer has been se
anxious about Mr. Kverts' scat, and we
will tell them, llelirer has n friend in
William lleitshue, a Republican, who
lives In the Seventh ward, and
in case of a vacancy by Mr.
Everts' resignation he wants te work a
scheme te get his friend in. Tlie major
thinks that select council would electa new
momber.and he slated I IcHsdui, for tlie posi
tion. If Mr. Everts were te be displaced
te make room for lleitshue, it would net be
a partlcle of advantage te the Republican
who have new a large large majority In
both branches, and an experienced and
tried councilman, who has served with
credit for years, would only be put out for
a new and inexporlencod man.
