BY ITS GREATEST
DEFICIT SINCE 79;
Municipal Financiers See
$4,000,000 and $6,000,000
RETRENCHMENT OR TAX?
One of Two Methods Needed
to aoive vexing
The city of Phltadclnhla In beginning the
year 191(1 with nn operating clcflclt In Its i
system or nuances grcnter thnn any which
lty llnnnclers havo hnd to face slnr
187S, when the municipality, with out
standing obligations of nearly S11.000.0fn.
van forced to appeal to tho Legislature,
with the result thnt Die far-reaching
"pay-as-you-go' act, designed to euih
municipal extravagance, was passed.
The causes of the present deficit, accord
ing to official! In City Hall, are many
and cumulative, but the Immediate result
and the solution of the problem for tho
future arc concrete matter which the
Mayor, the City Controller, the Klniince
Committee of Councils and others who
control the clty'a budget arc seeking to
meet In a scries of conferences and com
mittee meetings which are being held
In plain flgWos, as shown In the Con
troller's annual icport. the current ex
penses of the city for 1M5 were couMdcr
fttjly more than JH.OOO.WO greater thnn the
total of tho various revenues for the
same, year. Compared with the picvlous
year, the operating expenses of the
municipal machlncr) increased by $I.KXi,
W6.20. while the rovenucs Increased only
Htl,SO6.08. The estimates of the city's
revenue for tho present year, ns com
pared with the needs of tho various de
partments, show 'that the discrepancy for
1318 between the bedlt and the credit
columns will be far greater.
Tho dlfilculty last year was bridged In
part and temporarily by a loan on the
revenue jet to bp'rcullzed In 1916. Court
oilmen admit that this was In direct con
travention to tho spirit of the act of
1879, but they add there was no nltcr
natlvo, Hut mortgaging the future. In
como has oven a greater disadvantage,
for this year the .city financiers must
add the heritage from 1915 to the operat
ing deficit for the present yenr.
TWO METHODS POSSIUM-1
It Is estimated by members of Councils'
KJ.na.ncc Committee that tho expenses of
runhlng the machinery of thcmunlclpal
government for 10l(! will exceed the
known revenue by nn amount variously
Judged from $4,000,000 to $6,000,000 this
Including the 191J deficit.
The prolilrm therefore 1st IIoit
ball the city' liool.H ho made c
linlnneef There nre only two solu
The first is to prune snlnrles, re
trench In nil Im-ldrntnl expenses nf
me city nml county deportments.
This In theory. It In admitted, could
cut the debit column to meet the
rredlt. Ilut In practice It Is Itnpos
Ihle, the city miflioritleM nil nerer.
The other snliitliin Is then to In
rrenxc the clty'x nourcr or reicnuc
to inert the expensex. ml the
problem lecture the city nfllclnln nml
Councils N lion- to do CIiIn fnjrly
nnd -nrltli the burden of the Incrense
Although the 1913 Leglslatuie passed
enabling legislation to permit an Increase
In thp clty'a borrowing capacity from 7
to 10 per cent, on taxable property,' which
translated In terms of dollars means
about Jfi7,000000. this additions', borrowing
capacity Is available only for permanent
public Improvements, and for the present
It Is limited to transit and port Im
provements. Further, It has been the policy of the
city officials to meet current expenses
from current revenues. In other words,
the various city departments must be self
supporting nnd loans shall be floated only
or permanent public Improvements. The
first Important departuro from this rule
was In 1879, when, faced with outstanding
obligations of $11,000,000 and a per capita
debt of nbove J90, the Legislature per
mitted the city to float a $10,000,000 bond
Issue for contingent expenses.
Tho law was then fixed so that debts
must be paid as contracted. For years
there was no dlfilculty In doing this. The
city's Income met the city's expenses
and there was a balance to bo applied to
permanent puuuc improvements. In the
flvo years ending with 1911 there was a
balance sufficient to permit t.C53DG3.KI
from current revenue moneys .to bo used
for permanent public Improvements.
BIO DEBT ACCUMULATED.
But from January 1, 1912, to September
SO, 1915, when the Controller mado his
annual budget statement. Instead of a
balance for public Improvements, loun
moneys to the amount of $1,318,637.22 had
been required to meet current expenses
of the departments.
With this amount likely to Increase each
year the city authorities at the beginning-
of tho new Administration deter
mined that n halt must bo called nnd a
Hw policy adopted.
In addition to facing tin annual oper
ating deficit the city financiers at the
beginning of the Smith regime found
themselves facing unexpected obligations
of upwards of $23,000,000, due to a decision
of the State Supreme Court. The Court
in a Pittsburgh case held that ull the
lands taken for city purposes at once
become a bedt upon the city In so far
as their purchase price Is concerned. This
decision makes. It possible for the Courts
to Issue mandamuses against the city for
the amounts Involved in the respective
Under a recent order of Controller Wal
ton, no mandamuses are being paid. But
they are entered against the city and nre
bearing Interest at 6 per cent, which Is
generally satisfactory to the holders of
N'o mandamuses will be paid until a
mandamus fund Is provided In a council
manic loan, which will not be authorized
umu wo ukaci amount or the clty'a
borrowing capacity Is ascertained and the
financial problems racing the clty'a finan
cier have been solved, at least In part.

two youiiB Rlrls and thereby saved the
IIvch of live others in his family. The
Rlrls called I'ntrolman Keck, who
hastened to the boy's house, at 3216
Klpp street, where he found all the mem
bers of Mho family Ijlns about on the
floor, unconscious from the Ras.
The policeman summoned Dr. Klchaid
J. Suobodu. US East Allegheny avenue,
who walked for nearly an hour over the
family before he was able to brine them
hack to consciousness. According to the
story or John KorchlnR, 42 years old. the
father, he was nwnkened early when his
wife fainted nnd fell heavily to the floor.
lie said he was dizzy, and all he remem
bt'iH Is the stroiiR smell of coal gas.

Mr. Twlblll fainted twice before he
reached the street once In the vestibule
of his home and uguln on the frou
porch. A bread wnRon passed and an
automobile, but the driver of each ve

streets pollru station.
Miss Holland and Mr. Twinlll were
taken to St Joseph's Hospital, where the

It was necessary to stand n rigid test

to get the lay out of the "cribs" which
were to be "cracked," and the Job was
usually pulled off a few hours later.
Tho round-up of the gang was due to
the work of District Detectives Smith
and Osterheldt, of the 15th street and
