The President has vetoed the bill Toau tho city of Ogden Utah to assume increased This is President Harrisons first veto In his message tho President says Tho xencvul law fixes a limit of 4 per cent on the last assessment for taxation as tho limit of indebtedness which municipal corporations in the Territories may assume Tills bill extends tho limit as to Ogdcn to 8 per cent The purposes jire not peculiar or excep tional They relate to schools street Im provements and aro common to every prosperous town K the argument by which tho measure Is supported is adopted the con clusion should bo a repeal or modification of the general law but in my opinion tho lim itation imposed by law Is wlso and wbolosomo and should not bo relaxed The city now has power to in crease Us indebtedness which would seom enough to make a good beginning in tho construction ot sowers while tho cost of street improvements is usually mot by direct ftssesstnonts Almost all tho States have limited the power of municipal corporations to Incur Indebtedness and tho limit Is gen erally lower than that fixed in tho Territo ries I dont doubt that tho citizens of ug den will ultimately realize that the creation of
