Will Hood be Furnished to Residents
of West Valentine
At a special meeting of the city
council held last night tor the purpose
of arriving at some conclusion and de1
ciding upon a course of action in re
gard to the question of furnishing thd
west part of town with a water supply
it was decided to tap the main at the
corner of Virginia and Cherry streets
and lay a pipe on the south side of
Virginia street running west 1200
feet to the corner of Victoria - thence
south 500 feet tq tug corner of Victoria
and Catharine The tap will be made
Pnblifrtted for For Years as
opposite W R Townes place and the not Arrested until September 19
The 1200 foot line will be of 4 inch
pipe and the 500 foot lateral will be
3 inch This will give an abundant
supply of water to residents on the
streets named and furnish ample fire
protection There will be three fire
hydrants on the- line The vcity
already owns 500 feet of 3 inch pipe
and lpOfeet of 4 inch so only 1100
feet of pipe will need to be purchased
Geo Hornby offers to furnish samefor
28 cents per foot which is a very
reasonable price
In addition to the laying of the
mains described above it was decided
to put in a fire hydrant on the dead
end opposite Judge Walcotts
property thus giving the residents of
the northeast part of town adequate
fire protection The total cost of th
projected improvements will be about
500 and the board hns acted wisely
in having them made It it will now
rouse property owners to a sense of
the injustice they do the town by
neglecting their sidewalks our people
will rest content and call the board
blessed It is almost imperative that
a sidewalk be laid from Main street
to the M E and Episcopal churches
