( i rnent and Others. ,
Mayor Lane lata thla afternoon pre
sented to the city council tha estimate
of expenses of the different departments
of the municipal government tor
Thla wss referred to the waya and
maana committee, where the flgurea wUl
be scrutinised and tba tax. levy fixed for
next year. .
: The mayor recommended that the eatl
mate of the fire department be reduced
$60,000. the police department $11,700,
tha atreat lighting department $11,000
and the park board $7,000. Ha recom
mends the - reorganisation of tha health
department and tha combining of the of
flcea of plumbing inspector, building In
pector and health of ficera. He la of tha
opinion that a tax levy of 4 . mills upon
an estimated valuation of $116,000,004
taxable property In the city, together
with tha receipts from -. the " airierent
sources, will be sufficient to maintain
tha city government during 1900. - Hla
recommendations follow In detail:
The. Mayor's Message.
"To the Honorable City Council. Port
"Gentlemen: After having carefully
gone over the eatlmatea of tha different
depertmenta, I submit to you herewith a
compiled statement of the-entire finan
cial affairs of the city aa they have been
presented to me."
"In view of tha fact that tne assessed
valuatlon'a of all' properties have 'been
Increased to - about - two .and one-half
times what U was last year, the levy
for the texea for 10 muat be kept
ratio. The city Is growing rapidly, and
era In. lta hlatory. pointing to a greater
Increase In lta business and population
than It has ever known before, and It
should be properly provided with suffi
cient funds to keep up with the advance
In lta needs! At the same time all ltema
of -expenditure ahould be- carfuUy ecru
tlnlsed, that tha people's money may not
be waated. ,";.
. Four Kill Xvy Bnongh. t '
"I find It a difficult propoaition to
atrlke a balance between the actual
needa and tha neceaaary outlay required
to meet them. At any rate ee near as
I can ascertain a levy of 4 mllla upon an
estimated valuation of $US, 000,000 of
property will see the city aafely through
the coming year. - To do this the esti
mate .for the fire department muat be
reduced to I IJ 1.000 or 160,000 below thai
submitted: In the-report from that de
partment. We need Increased apparatua
for fighting flrea, but by making care
ful selections of sites In outlying dis
tricts snd using half pay system for
call men in some instance, an Increased
expenditure of say $15,000 or $10,000
above laat year will materially Improve
tha present condition of affalra.
"In tha police department a eavtng of
$1,100 a year can be made If the city
will board and keep Its own horses at
lta own a tables. By substituting a pa
trol wagon station on the east aide
In plaoa of a station, soma tt.000 mors
can be aavad. By leaving out the im
provement In the patrol system $3,600
mors can be taken off, making a total
of say $11,700.
( Oast ftave In Lighting.
'In atreet lighting, allowing an In
crease of 100 lights for tha year, we
can save $11,000 from the estimate.
"The park board expended, say $23,000
this year, with much new sidewalk to
be built, with, none to build next year,
