That Water Problem
Since our last issuo we have heard
considerable of commeiitouourartlcle
relative to tho water problem.
As wo stated, there is an undor cur
rent of public opinion highly favor
able to the Maurer springs proposition
which has been freely volcod to us
through a number of our readers. Hut
this public opinion which liaso long
been favorable and of late so contag
eous, maintains a very cautUus atti
tude on ono itotnnelthcr the necessity
nor the proprioty, nor the purity, nor
the supply, nor any sanitary or physic
al reason but on the single item of
expense and expense alone.
Tho expression of public opinion we
have heard on this subject, coming as
it has from tax payers who have the
elty'b wellfare sincerely at heart and
who are manifesting only an unselfish
public spirited interest in tho oanso of
public good, has given us abundant
evidence that credible information on
tho item of expense is tho ono thing
needed to make the Maurer springs
proposition the probable ollVotive
solution of our deplorable municipal
In the Maurer springs solution of
our water problem there is two pro
positions. 1st. Build a sanitary protection
over the springs and conduct tho water
through tyle pipe into reservoirs at
the Engine House, with overflow
drains back to tho creek.
2nd. Build a sanitary protection
ovor the springs and conduct tho
water through pressure pipe into the
city mains, with a cut oir into reser
voirs at the Rngine House, and over
This process, if available, would
supply the B. & M., and perhaps more
than half the balance of the watur
used in the municipality merely hy
It is the purpose of this article to
iirguo tho probable cost and advisabil
ity of the 1st proposition.
Wo do not know the exact distance
from the Iingino House to Mauror's
springs, but the distance is nearly the
exact length of tho hypothenusc of a
right angled triangle 1 .j x ,'; miles.
These springs aro l' miles north and
Yi mile west of the Hnglne House, and
the only pratical way to connect the
wator from tho springs would be down
the natural water grade of tho creek,
on an air line across the country. But
lot us assume tho distance to bo two
miles the longest possible measure

Candidly, wo think it would be pre
posterous to expend a thousand or
clghteon hundred dollars more of tho
tax payers funds in fruitless experi
menting in that unfortunate water
