We believe there are but few towns in Iowa the size of Bancroft bnt have waterworks and Bancroft should not bo behind in this important matter. Some make objection to waterworks for the reason that only the main part of town will receive protection which, however, has no weight as plenty of hoso can be secured and not only that but tho town will soon bo able to lay mains into the residence portion. The increase in tax will be but a small matter and the system of waterworks will Increase the value of every house and lot in town. The expense will be in tho neighborhood of $4,000, and 110 one who is in favor of water works wants cheap water works or works that will be insufficient in case of a conflagration. Wo believe tho best interests of Bancroft demand a first class system of waterworks and wo believe a majority of the voters will so decree next Monday. Let us have waterworks by all moans.
