It is quite certain that The Dalles is
not to have electric lights for its streets
this winter. The income of the city
Witt UUIr J UC I UJ' It, null liUTJ tUAIVCI fIClt;- ,
tically prohibits the creation of debt.
Instead of being a surplus for the year,
a close computation shows that the ex
penditures have exceeded the income
by a few dollars. The only way to have
street lights is to pay for them by a
special tax, and this property owners
will not consent to.
It is a bad state of affairs ; but The
Dalles has a condition confronting: it and
must deny itself many things in order
to get out of debt. A sinking fund must
be provided to meet the payment of
bonds, and this may, and probably will,
require a trifling advance in the tax
rate. In ' conversation with City Treas
urer Crandall this morning he stated
that there "vaa no place where expenses
could he reduced, unless it was by re
ducing the treasurer's salary, which is
now $20 per month. He Bays he is no
Pennoyer, but if it is necessary for tne
salvation of the city, he can stand a re
duction of one-half and throw off the
other. The city's income will run it so
long as expenses are not increased ; but
that ia all it will do.
The only solution of the matter we
see is that those who object to darkness
will have to go home early.
