Yesterday morning tlieie was a
hurry call for the citiens to meet in
the council chamber to once again de
termine what should be done witli the
ever present water problem. This
meeting was called by Dr. Cook who
had been up to the power plant and
found that work on the extension
ditch had boon stopped owing toa rup
ture between the council and mayor,
lie alllrnied his belief and faith in the
present ditch and olVered to buck up
his judgement with a donation to the
oily of S.'OO. F.veryone admired the
Doctor for liis generosity but no one
seemed disposed to allow private
funds to be expended for public ser
vice. Superintendent Kich wis asked
to explain his lludings in icganl to
piping (lie springs to the power house
and lie explained tliat lie bad given
tlio matter careful consideration and
had accurately estimated tlio e.vpemo
necessary to bring t lie springs down
and that g.'t.ouo.ul) would be ample.

that the council entered into a con

ceed with tlio work. All went well
until ho called upon the city to pro
duce tlio tile necessrtiy for tlio ditch
and this the council refused to furnish.
Mayor Potter claimed that he had re
ceived no notice of tlilB special meet
ing of the council but tlio city records
showed that a written notice hud been
left tit his usual place of business mid
that the city clerk had notified the
mayor of the meeting by telephone.

History repeated itself and all the
theories were present as to faith in

neighborhood of the present system.
Superintendent. Kich again his llud

springs. Mayor Potter asserted that
the present ditch was exactly the plan
which Dr. Condra advocated when he
visited tliis place last spring but it
was conclusively shown that tli plan
as laid down by Dr. Condra was laid
