JI fefil itfe* SSstftS Sg ^?V 'M: 1 jlfff A "1 do not see for the life pf me, how any city in North Dakota can keep from going back year after year, financially," remarked City Auditor McHugh recently to the Indeggndent man. "Now take Minot for instance. She is going back every year and while the city is being run on a very economical basis, there is no way to pay the expenses except by direct taxation and to tax the people enough to pay the running expenses, would make it almost impossible for them to own city property. "Last year the city came out financially better than any year previous. There are some lots which are not taxed high enough. For instance, some of the Brooklyn addition lots are taxed for only .$7. "Look at the water system. That is not paying the city a cent. It never will pay the city till good pure water is placed in the mains. People don't want to pay for that dirty river water. It is fit only for watering stock and for fire protection. The city must get good wa...
