As the time la fust approaching when
we will be called U| k > ii to build more

some plan whereby we ran mure
equally divide the burden. The old
way of making all parties adjacent to
a street put up for all of tin* expense
works h hardship on a few and it is
often the case that some can not stand
it. Everybody in the city receives u
bencht from that new street. Now
lets devise a plan of raising money so
that all o f the taxpayers inside the cor
poration will stand their pro rata of
said tax. Let the money he collected
by a special tax for that purpose and
have the most needed anil the worst
streets fixed lirat and it will not be but
a few years until we will have all of
the streets fixed at a small expense to
everybody. We will then have a rity
that will be right and one o f which
