1905 Excerpt: ...their pay ments for outlays from revenue as well
as those from loans. The marked increase in debt was accompanied by
a still greater increase in the acquisition of fixed property. The
foregoing comparison does not fully set forth the facts to the
credit of the cities, since the sinking funds and other permanent
funds each year purchase some city securities from the publie, in
addition to those purchased, as above stated, from the city. As a
result, the debt obligations held by the public increased in 1902
by only $40,493,090, while the excess of the receipts from the

that the outlays met directly or indirectly from the proceeds of
revenue were, in 1902, $89,461,969, and in 1903, $95,502,453. Some
of the difference shown by the comparison first made vanishes when
consideration is taken of the purchases of city securities by the
permanent funds. Table 36. Classification of piiblic debt by
character of loans.--The character of public municipal loans and

just criticisms and objections. Such an exhibit would not in all
respects be comparable as between the several cities. To obviate
this and to make the statistics of debt for the different cities as
comparable as possible, the Bureau of the Census has sought to
