This balance ought to amount to a great many thousand dollars in the course of the next th'ttj years. From the sworn statement of the receiver, for 1912, the net profits of the Water company were about ?39,0Q0. Tax payers, take out your pencil and do a little figuring your self. By simple .calcuJat'oa the present earnings of the Water company (39,000 per year) are sutneient to pay $22,500, the amount of Interest oh the entire bond issue cf $500,000 at 4 1-t per cent, and have a bal ance of $16500 per yes r to establish a' sinking fund of $8572 each year in order to pay off tha bonds in thirty years, and still turn over to the city treasurer a yearly balance of $7928. It must be clear, therefore, that the property owners of the city of Durham need not worry themselves very much about the increased taxes on account of city ownership of the Water. Oa the contrary, in the light of the present earnings of the water company, and in the light ot other cities owning the water works, they may feel assured of a decrease in the city taxes, and also pay for the Water Works in thirty years. ; Now, the abovo calculation is based on a plant costing $500,000, the amount of the bonds, whiie the profits of the Water Company -are on their present plant which appear to be worth about $270,000. If great im provements, costing some t Mug like $200,000, were expended upon the present plant, it is fair to ttume that it would earn t leasts $60,000 ia stead of $39,000. The fact is that the earnings of the Water company, in seventeen years, have increased over four hundred per cent, and the probabilities are that their Increase of earniags during the next thirty years, judging the future by the past, would amount to as much as $100,000 peryear. Is it any wonder that some body is spending money freely to defeat city ownership? Let us turn on the light Let us think well, before we tie ourselves to thirty years more-of the foul waters of Jtno river. '. Let us thiftk well before we give thirty years contract to Bos ton bondholders that will almost certainly take $2,000,000 in earnings out of tho pockets of tnc ta payerss of Durham, and put this $2,000,000 of net earnings into the pockets of Boston bondholders. Hydrant Rental. By the way, tax payers o Durham, who pays for the present water pipo extensions in the city, the Water company or the tax payers? Take out your pencil and figure "again. The Boston bondholders are now charging the city about $9,500 a year for 215 hydrants, cud tho water imcd for iires, sprinkling streets aud public building!. It is eellmatfcd on reliable authority that $1200 per yeai would be a fair charge for nil tllo r ater virtually used by the? city, which leaves a balanco of $$,300 for hydrant reu- , tali Now, the laying of 6-incb pipe line f00 feet ut 62 cents per foot mid i amounts to $310.
