That is about the sum that the people of
Butler havo expended for improvements
since the election wu held by which the
Council was aathoriicd to go ahead and
make them and bond the town for the bor
ough's share, under tho Sewer and Paving
Acts, to the extent of 7 per cent, of the
preoeding valuation. The assessed valua
tion at that time was, in round numbers,
$2,000,000, aud the bonded indebtedness of
the town to-day is $62,000, of which $35,-
000 was for tho borough's third of the pav
ing and $25,000 for the two main sewers:

owners petition therefor.

about $65,000 for their paving, the people
of the northern and western parts ot town

in assessments, which added to the $60,000
paid by the Boraufth, the cost of Diamond
St. (not yet assessed) and tho expenses for
grading, filling, new sidewalks, etc., will
make fully $2u0.000 that the people of this
town have expended for improvements,
since the election on the question—and we
have made a good beginning.
The assessments for Main St. are nearly
all paid and those of the other streets are
coming in very nicely.
The lux lor general borough purposes
this yoar will amount to SIO,OOO and that
