000 in bonds for the purpose of erecting
additional school buildings, purchasing-

proposed improvements, according to the
ordinance adopted yesterday, based upon
estimates submitted by experts, will be $1,-
In order to provide the necessary funds,
therefore, the city will, when the ordinance
is approved by the voters, issue bonds not
exceeding that amount, and will levy an
nually a tax sulScient to pay the principal
and interest of the bonds. The action of
the commissioners was taken pursuant to
the municipal finance act.
As required by this act, a statement of
the debt of the city has been filed 'with the
city clerk, which shows that the amount of
the nyet debt outstanding, authorized or to
be authorized, including this issue, is $2,-
254,155. The assessed valuation of prop
erty subject to taxation by the city for the
fiscal year 1920, as shown by the state
ment, is $46,670,053.

for this school building bond election, and
all who wish to vote in the election will
