Tax-Payers to Voice Their Opinion
With Regard to Issuing Bonds for
$30,000 Sidewalk Ordered Bills

It is now up to the voters of the
city of Pendleton to say whether or
not a thorough sewerage system shall
be Instilled. At tho council meeting
last night, December 18 was set for
the special city election when the
voters will have a chance to voice
their sentiments on the subject.
The proposition, as presented by
the council. Is that a special election
be held to ascertain if the citizens
want to vote a debt of $30,000 on
themselves for a sewerage system, as
it Is estimated that this will bo tho
cost of Installing a thorough system.
While the city council Is unanimous
on the matter it is the wish of this
body to have the people give their
expression through tho ballot box at
Just as early a date as possible. This
is to give the city a chance to get tho
preliminaries completed nnd be ready
to begin work In the early spring if
the voters nre in favor of the propo
Those Qualified.
Those qualified to voto at this elec
tion will he all property owners living
In the city limits who had $100 worth

than $100 worth of assessed property
will be taken down and a list kept at
each of the four voting places so that
in case there is a question as to the
voter's eligibility to voto all that Is
required will be to turn to tho list
of tax-payers and settle the matter.
No registration is necessary and
women are allowed to vote.
Twenty-Year Donds.
The bonds which tho city will
issue to pay for tho sewerago system
are to have a 20-year limit. That
there will be no difficulty in floating
these bonds there is no question. Al
ready many Inquiries have been sent
in as to when the bonds would bo
issued, and capitalists have designat
ed their intention of taking up the
bonds without delay.

one in each of the wards of tho city.
