HOW MUCH IT WILL COST.
The Public Library and Municipal
Mr. Andrew Cannula has olfcicd u
public library to Caibotidale, iirovldcd
it will take care of it. This care will
be $2,500 yearly. Wo now pay SsOO
yearly for our library; MuO dlu-ct, $109
in pilntlng (binding) and the use of a
300 a, year loom. The added eNpcnso
will only be Jl.Tut) a jfitir, or about
one-half a mill on tin- ns&essed valui
Hon. What will It cost you"' If you
liuvc an occupation tax of 5K0, it will
i o.st about 6cvcti cc nts ti yeai. If j our
property Is assessed at .$M0 It will cost
:oti twenty-live cento, if u thousand,
then llfty cents, uud on only those few
whoso property is asso-sed at $2,000
will the tax bo one dollar a year or
tun tent. per week. One public-spirited
citizen, who has assessed to hint
some SO.OOO, will pay $2" yeaily, utid
jet he &ays have the llbraiy, anil ho
otters a fico slto for It. Und bless
Now a littlo about tho city's expendi
tures. Last year there, was appro
piiated $3,n6j; this year the cominlt
tie have loconimeiiilcd nn oidliiancc
that cuts these uppioprlutlons to $41.
t'f'0. This cut Is made by tho reduc
tion ot $2,000 In lntei est and bonds to
ilet mod and $t!U0 in itBsesior's expenses.
This appioprlatlon covets all needful
eMuiibed nd the constltuanls of each
councilman ought to in bo that It bo
paused in Its piesent economical shape,
mid not loaded down with cxtiava
gant, unnecessary things.
Another year, by leason nf fewer
damage Mills, less Intvrobt and by tho
completion of fioino permanent woik,
it will be possible to lower this by
J3.000 or $1,000. This will make it
possible to use $2,000 or $3,000 In per
manent Impiovcments and still keep
our budget down to $10,000 a limit
that should not be exceeded until we
become a larger city. $10,000 equals
just about $:J for each Inhabitant. Tho
above figures keep in mind tho llbraiy
and all really useful expeiidltuies.
GILDY AT LIBERTY.
Released from the Hospital Yester
Constable Stephen A. Oilby, who
gave cveiy one mound the city build
ing such a scare on Monday night by
attempting biilclde by hanging, and
who nearly succeeded at bis tlllid at
tempt, was dlschuiged from the hos
pltal ycstenlay morning at 11.30 o'clock
and advised to go to his home, lie
piobably look the ailvke, for nothing
was seen of lihn mound town yestei
ilnv. The fall which Oilby got when ho
was cut down by City Tieasuicr Con
nor probably saved his life. In his
tumble ho struck tho back of his head
on a projt etlon, and the concussion
made a cut at the bails of bis head
lully two inches in length. This stint d
the blood to Mowing In his limp body
and, no doubt, hastened consciousness.
At the Iiosjiltal the matron took three
stitches In the wound. Whin he loft
the hospital jeslciday moiulug, the
attendants asked him how ho fill, and
ho said that lie was all light and felt
like himself, but be would like to know
who was mean enough to hit him in
tho back of the hind like that.
BEFORE THE MAYOR.
Two Cases of Helpless Di units Dis
posed of by His Honor.

maritans in biass buttons and blue
clothes to prevent their coming to

terests. The flrat to answer the cnteihlsm
.was RIchdid J. Muiphy, who allege I
