Water Once More
As one of the committee appointed
to circulate tho petition asking tho
eouneil to submit a bond piopnsitiou
tothetas payeis of this city we start
ed out to obtain siguutuies. We had
not gone very fur before we were con
fronted with great discouragement.
Our citizens expressed themselves that
they had been fooled so often by sine
thing proposals which had icsultcd in
failure that they were loath to ventuie
agaliMinless they KNEW what they
wore doing. We acknowledged that
this was good argument so at our own
expense we lilted out a testing appar
atus nml took n party out to tho
Maurer springs to see what could be
Superintendent Rich used what is
known as the Wlorsystomof measure
ment and Prof. Morltz made Ids com
putations by usiiitf Pascal's law. Both
made their own computations separ
ately. Tho rosults of the findings of
both methods agreed so that we are
able to give nccurnto figures as to the
tlow of water coming from tho springs.
The first test made showed that tho
spring near the tree poured forth 97,
85(1 gallons of water every twenty four
hours. After digging a dozen spade
fulls of dirt the llow was perceptibly
increased and a new measurement
taken this showed 100,150 gallons por
twenty four hours. All agreed that
by cleaning out this spring thoroly
tho tlow could bs made to.douhlc that
Further investigation of one of tho
other springs showed a few hundred
more gallons of water por day without
any opening up. All agreed that
there was enough water at the springs
to supply the city of Bed Cloud for all
time. No tests were mmlo of the other
springs but they could be used in the
future If found necessary.
There is no question but what those
two springs will furnish from 'J5o,C0o
to 450,000 gallons of water per day and
as our groatet consumption has never
exceeded 11)0,000 per day it Is easy
onough to see that the water is there.
But we us u city want to know just
exactly ylmt wo are doing und wo
favor the making of more tests say in
another week to see if there is any
chango iu the llow or any chance of
buying a gold brick. Wo have the ut
most confidence in those springs but
many citizens in time past have had
unlimited confidence iu exploring the
bottoms only to find that their fond
est hopes had not been realized.
Now in order that theie may be the
fullest confidence in this undertaking
we propose that the council employ
the services of a foreign competent
engineer to go over the ground and
give us exact figures as to the cost of
piping the springs to tho powerhouse.
We have overy confldoncoln the ability
of our present superintendent Rich
aud the survey as made by city engi
neer Orerlng but wo believo that it is
for tho best public interest to secure
the services of an outside engineer
and let him verify tho findings. In
this manner we will avoid taking any
leaps in tho dark. Lot us bo sure wo
are right this time.
Another thing should be thoroly
understood and that Is that should we
decide to bring the springs down ALL
the work must be done, by contract
and according to law. Wo bolievo
that the present council will act iu no
othor mannor but following out the
same plan of acting with our eyes
opou it would not be unbecoming for
that body to go on record as to the
policy they would pcrsue.
Since so large a majority of our
pcoplo are iu favor of the springs let
us act in harmony, gather all the data,
get the facts and carry out this plan
to a succeesful conclusion. We all
want toknow first if tho waterls there,
second what the cost will bo, and third
will tho work bo douo according to
law. For ourselves wo have no hesi
tency in saying that tho water is there,
that if the cost will reach eight or ten
thousand dollars wo want to know it
beforo aud not after and lastly wo oro
conlldeut that our council may bo
trusted to absolutely sntlsfy the most
