THE UPPER DES MOINES believes as ;p sewerage as it does about electric ights that what public money is ex- )onded should only be expended after ihe authorities have made thorough nvestigation and have become fully atisfied as to the best course to pursue. We are not certain that the sewerage jroblem is not the most important. II he council thinks it is it should horoughly investigate the best meth- ids for a town like Algona. Whatever he temporary hardship it is better for all to wait until the council knows definitely all it can find,out about sewerage, and has time to plan a wise and conomical system.
