From Thursday' raflT.
municipal ownership proposition
placed before the people
The following report was received
in regard to municipal water plants:
"All the large cities of the United
States now own and operate their
own water works. New York, Bos
ton. Philadelphia, Chicago. Cleveland,
St. Louis. Omaha, Denver, Los An-
geles and San Francisco, own their
waterworks. In fact, nearly every
city in this country having a popu-
lation of over 150,000 owns its own
water plant.
Only through municipal ownership
has it been possible for the larger
cities of the country to get pure
water and thereby keep down the
deatb rat frofti- typkold fever
"There are now about 5.000 mu
nicipally owned water plants in tbe
United States. During the war, and
rince. while private companies have!
been endeavoring to force higher
rates, 85 per cent of municipally
owned plants have maintained their
rates at pre-war prices, and some
have actually reduced them.
"Statistics gathered by the Nation
al Public Ownership league show that
water furnished to consumers costs
from 40 to 60 per cent more under
private ownership than it does under
public ownership."

clever in her part, and as the lover,
John T. Lyon made a dashing Romeo
and proved a decided hit. The role
of the society leaders was taken by
Miss Florence Balser and Mr. Byron
IlaLbitt as "Mr. and Mrs. Park" and
they were very realistic in their in
terpretation of the character of the
haughty rncl overbearing newlyrich,
r.nd the role of the daughter was
Tni:en very cleverly by Mrs. William
Keinrich. The role of the younger
bildrer. of the family was carried by
Harry Foster and Helen Virginia
I'rice. As chura3 of the daughter of
the Pari: family. Miss Agnes Young,
Mrs. Gr?ce Perry and Mr3. John Lyon
occupied a very interesting part of
the performance. Harry King, as the
rich and eccentric uncle was also
much enjoyed and showed great clev
erness In his work. Mi33 Rose Mae
Creamer and little Harold Stewart

Girl" and made a most pleasing im
pression on the audience.
A number of the 3'oung children.
