This week it was again found con
palsory to turn the creek into the city
water works wells in order to supply
the demand. The demand, eince there
is no water commissioner, is something
wonderful. An artesian well would
ot furnish eaough. And the worst of
it is there has not been a cent of water
tax paid this year. Tho question nat
urally arises, who pays for all this
water that is used? The wator con
sumers may pay two. fifths of tho ex
pense, but the tax payor pays the rest.
Why not put in meters and put the
water works on a paying basis? While
it may be true that it would cost twolvo
or flfteeu hundred dnllats it would bo
a blessing to four-fifths ot our citizens
who do not use city water but who pay
a tax of from live to ten mills every
year to keep up tho wster works. If
the present council wants to muko a
record for thoinsnlves and at 'tho
same timo gain the good will of tho
citizen tax payers, let them put in a
mntar for cvorv consumer, and ninko a
i rate for water that will put the system
on n paying basis. This thing of pay
ing taxes for some one else's heiclit
'gets very monotonous if kept up long
1 enough. Wo think ills pretty safe to
say that the amount received for water
under the present rato will not pay for
the coaluied ia pumping the water.

The appearance of James Sterner at
