worthy cause and the promoters

Tbe following report and recom
mendations of tbe finance committee
was submitted at tbe adjourned meet
ing ot tbe council last night:
Hood Kiver, Ore., fen. li, 1907.
To Honorable .Mayor and Common
Council, city of liood Hiver:
A careful examination of the reports
of tbe city treasurer and teoorder for
tbe last quarter ending December 31,
1D06, and also tbeir annual repwt for
the year 1906, has been made by this
committee and, aside from an error
in tbe recorder's report of 75 oenta in
tbe amounts turned over to tbe treaa
urer, we believe tbem to be correct.
The recorder has deposited tbe above
amount with tbe treasurer sinoe Jan
uary 1, 1907, and we tbeietore recom
mend tbat their respeo' lve reporta be
accepted by tbe council.
We rind the aotual balances and de
doits in tbe respective fund aooounta
Jauuay 1, 1907, to b at follows:
(ieueral fund, balanoe, $ 464 04
Hewer fund, deficit, 4,636 41
Road fund, bamnce, 1,148 92
water ruuu, balance, 7 24
We recommend an alteration in tbe
present system of recorder for keeping
toe cuy s accounts, ceginning Jana
ary 1, 1907, tbat tbey may show at all
times tbe funds received from the
county treasurer and all otber re
oeipts wbioh come direct to tbe oity
tioasurer; also any disbursements by
too city treasuier aooount Interest
paid on warrants redeemed: tbat tbe
oity treasuier report amount of these
reoelpts or dtsbuisements to tbe oity
recorder whenever same ia received or
paid out. Ibis we know tbe treasur
er win be pleased to do and tbe re
corder bas arranged to adopt tbe few
ebangos necessary, which will enable
mm or any citizen to ascertain tbe
exact condition of tbe finances at any
11ms ana also euuuie tne recorder to
make a complete report 101 each ouar-
ter and year, which hat not been done
heretofore. Ike balances as shown
by the city treasurer's books are not
sate guide for the reason that there
are often many watranta floating

Ine deuuit in the sewer fund should
be covered by a special assesBmenat

knowledge unpaid bills outstanding
to make the deficit reach $3000. Tbe
oity will be required to refund small
amounts from time to time, as prop

owners, it having been sold for more
