It is in the tightest financial strai-ts" since 1881, the year ot ;the great'ifaUurfe. To put it plainly, Chicago is so hard pressed for cash that -it is tiaying its: employees only eigltty- per-cept.'- of- their salaries, whiliB aft' to- the- trthcr expenses aside from. flxe'd' cKar'gesV U is paying only seventy, .ceiltS; on tlie dollar.

The street and allfcy cleaning department 'is cut to the marrow. In fact-;all the agencies for municipal cleiinlirtcss and prbtfcctton ate cramped for funds,and groatly Impaired m service.. Despite all this, Chicago faces a debt of almost three million dollars,-which must-be paid out � of Its eorpofoto-funds,- unless relief is' given through- aibond issue. The-financlBfl sttlngency in -which the city -finds'itlifelf is the outcome of a decision 6r the  Supreme Court of Illinois last- year - ihterpret'.ng the '.luai Law, as providing that the in-tarpst and- sinking-fund on the city's bonded indebtedness shall beliicludcd .within the rate'limitations of the .' law.'Through this decision the city found itself shouldered -ivith an unexpected -burden of $3,710,000.

Theyha-ve been'a-opcaied to, lb ipresont ja-pplutjon of the 'problem Tiow confronting' Chicago, and their answer is that there is no solution at ,tho present trme.
