For Consolidation. Hon, J. Belden Hurlbutt Presents His Views on the Consolidation of Norwalk, East Norwalk and South Norwalk. ED. GAZETTE.—I see from various articles in the papers and communications published, that there is a mistaken notion abroad about the wealth, population, growth and general prosperity? of the borough of Norwalk, and the city'of South Norwalk. It seems to be the impression of some that the city has increased in population and wealth much faster than the borough, which is erroneous, for I find that the population of the city of South Norwalk in 1880, was 3,726, and in 1890, about 4,500, a gain of only 890, while the borough had in 1880, 5,308, and in 1890 over 6,300, a gain of 1,000. In 1884, the reported debt of the city was $105,000, with a grand list of about $1,605,000, and a tax rate of 8| mills. The borough had at that time a debt of $258,650, a grand list of 000, in round numbers, and a tax of ten mills. In 188 J, according to the returns the city had increased its debt to $155,- 000, to which at present there should be added a part of the cost of their new reservoir, which will carry it up to between $175,000 and $200,000. It had increased its grand list to $1,846,- 000, a gain of $191,000 in the grand list, and over $70,000 in liabilities, and in the meantime it had collected by the way of assessments for sewers, quite a number of thousands of dollars, over and above its ten mill tax. In 1889, the borough had increased its debt to $440,000; its grand list to $3,400,000, with its tax rate still of ten mills; it had made no assessments for sewers, upon which it had expended over $150,- 000, and had built additional water works. These figures of indebtedness, grand list and taxation, appear from sworn returns of the officers of the two municipalities to the comptroller. L While,,the .pity has increased in population only 800 to the borough's 1^000, the increase of the city's debt is two-fifths of its increase of grand list;' the borough's increase of debt is only one-sixth of its increase in grand list. The borough has for its debt a sewer system complete, and as good as any in the country, extending through the largest part of the borough. Three reservoirs with a supply of as good water as can be found anywhere. A steam engine, two hose companies, one hook and ladder company, one engine company, a hose wagon, and other fire accoutrements, all complete, with two large brick houses, for engine, hose, and other fire companies. I hardly think that it will be claimed that the city's water supply is as good or plentiful as that of the borough, even in proportion to its cost. Removing this erroneous impression, removes1 to a certain degree the objection which is urged by some to a consolidation, as they term it, of the cit3r, borough and East Norwalk, for it is not attaching a growing place to a dead one, as has been urged. I go further than taking the city and the borough and East Norwalk into one city, and reach out and make the entire township one city, as a matter of economy and good business judgment. The present salary list of the borough, city and town, as returned to the comptroller, is about $5,400. The whole governmental expenses in the way of salary list of a city comprising the entire town, need not and would not exceed from $2,000 to $2,500, which would leave of the money now paid out for salaries, say $3,000, which could be expended in improvements, making the city attractive and inviting. I think I need not say, that a city of 18,000 people would be looked upon with more favor, would have greater influence and attract people to it as a progressive place conducted in its municipal affairs on sensible business principles, than the same number of people divided into three municipalities, two of which are within the third one. The community of interest would naturally stimulate enterprise and business activity and promote the growth of the whole city. To then locate a factory or business enterprise, neither the upper or lower part of the city would not be helping a rival, but advancing the entire community interest. The jealous animosities and what seem to me to be childish bickerings which have characterized the two sections in their treatment of each other would necessarily cease. Citizens working in South Norwalk and located in East Norwalk, and in the borough of Norwalk, or outside of either place, would be paying taxes upon their accumulations for the support of the community, not merely where they live, but where they work as well. South Norwalk today gets no benefit of the accumulations of those workmen that li\ e outside the city. Now, the feeling which seems to control the action of the Sentinel, may be, I think, very much likened unto the Pharisee who said: "God, I thank Thee that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican (the borough.) I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I get." For it seems to want to to be understood that they would treat East Norwalk with extreme fairness and as a beloved child; while the borough would be guilty of extortion and would act unjustly to both. It forgets that the borough and the upper portion of the town and East Norwalk, so far as town matters are concerned, is one body. The first district has some twenty-one hundred and odd voters, to East Norwalk, say five hundred, and yet East Norwalk has had the representative on the board of selectmen, more than its proportion of time. The borough had the power, had it desired to exercise it, to refuse it every time. The upper portion of the town had the power to vote down the building of the bridge, which gave the direct way from East Norwalk to South Norwalk, yet at a large cost, it was voted, and exists to-day. The failure to carry into effect certain votes affecting East Nor-wallc's interest, has been charged to the borough by our good friends of the Sentinel, who seem to forget that the selectman at South Norwalk, and the selectman at East Norwalk, could carried them into effect at any time, and now the defeat of a free delivery from South Norwalk, is attributed to the people of the borough intermeddling with South Norwalk's affairs. I may venture to say that no borough man has, unasked, intermeddled with South Norwalk affairs, or East Norwalk's affairs. South Norwalk proposes and desires to accomplish that which they would not' submit to themselves, to wit, establishing a free delivery, and abolishing the post office in the community. No one believes that the borough of Norwalk, or the city of South Norwalk, would consent to have a free delivery at the expense of the loss of their post office, and East Norwalk ought not to be made a sacrifice for the benefit of the South Norwalk post office, when the same can be accomplished by delivery from the East Norwalk office, and while these attacks are being made upon the people the borough of Norwalk, it might be well to call the Sentinel's attention to their forbearance—for I find that Norwalk came manfully to the assistance of the Daily Sentinel, by contributing 106 advertisers among the short advertisements on the first page of its paper, to 121 from South .Norwalk, and most of them feel that they ought not be misrepresented. The growth of East Norwalk has been large, and promises to be larger, and to be, in a few years, the most populous part of the town. Let us then adopt business principles in governmental affairs, and conduct ourselves toward each other as one family, rather than be constantly suggesting that at some time one has done a wrong to the other, [or has done something which the other does not approve of. By dividing the town of 18,000 into wards of 1,500 each, thus making twelve wards, we would have three wards in the present city limits, two wards at East Norwalk, one at Five Mile River, Middle £Five Mile River, and part of West Norwalk, four in the Borough, one at Cranberry Plains, and that portion of the town, and one in the northwest. Electing a Councilman from each ward, would give a representative in the government of the city to each community, so that its interests would always be presented to the governing body, and considered at the time of any and all actions, by which means all sections would be better considered and better cared for. Then giving to the several wards power to make local improvements, and to the city and Borough wards, authority to meet their present liabilities and obligations, and fixing the expenses of the improvements upon the community benefitted. Every advantage now possessed by those living within the present city limits would then be possessed by them erery advantage possessed by those living within the borough limits, would then be possessed by them, and the outlying portions would have all the advantages of a city government, with authority to make local improvements. No burden need be cast upon one section for the debts or improvements of the other, but each would bear its own burden and only so much of the general burden as it was equitable for it to share. The power thus spread over the entire town would prevent any section having advantage over any other sec tion. Yours truly, , J. BELDEN HURLBUTT. if* East Avenue Railway.
