(Ashland Tidings)

Ashland will vote bonds for $175,000 to put the medicinal waters in the park. Of this amount $110,500 will bring the water to the points of distribution, and $65,000 will be expended in fountains and fixing the proper surroundings in the park.

In response to the call for a mass meeting of the citizens to consult on the proposed bond issue to bring in the springs, an enthusiastic audience of 150 citizens crowded the Commercial Club room to the limit last night.

The committee explained the plans in detail as far as the matter had progressed and every phase of the bond issue and springs enterprise was discussed by the taxpayers.

In furtherance of the desires of the committee a motion was offered advising the committee to prepare a bond election for $175,000 for the purpose.

This will be done. Under the law it will take about 60 days to bring the matter to a vote.

It was one of the most important, harmonious and enthusiastic gatherings ever held in Ashland.
