The announcement that Councilman
Knudaen, member of th special water
work committee, had a proposition to of
fer which he bellevea will prove a aolutlon
for the .Water worka problem,. Councilman
Wallac. chairman of th commute, de
clared yeaterday waa newa to him and
likewise to th other two member of the
committee, ha believed. The fact that
Councilman Knudaen had ' some ' plan to
propote without consulting him as chair
man of the apeclal .committee, I waa evi
dently, somewhat dlspleaain to Mr. Wal
councilman Wallace Insists that mu
nicipal ownership of the water work plant
is still feaalbli The fact that th city
council, when fixing th last tax levy,
failed to make a levy for the sinking fund
for th purchase of the water worka waa
taken aa an Indication that that body
had com to th conclusion that the ac
quirement by the city of th plant toy pur
chase waa not under existing conditions
feasible. Councilman Younkerman, al
though admitting that It Is time that the
city council did something In the matter,
declared yesterday that the council la
committed to municipal' owWrah'lp and that
he for one intends to redeem his pledge to
the people. ' '
"W have already apent aeveral thousand
dollars on th water worka problem, look
ing to It acquisition by the city, but to
day we ar no nearer to atom arrange
ment thaa w were three years ago. It's
time for tanrlbla results or a complete
change of method or procedure," said Mr.
Wallace Net Advised.
Councilman Wallace also denied yeater
day any knowledge of the proposed confer
ence between the apeclal water worka
committee and the executive committee of
the Comnierrlal club . tomorrow " afternoon.
On the other hand
declares ' that he wfl be there ready to
aubmit hla pro position for, a settlement of
th question, whether the other members
are present or not.
That the business men of the city 'are
growing Impatient over' the" inactivity of
the city council In th matter of the water
works question. President McDonald of, the
Commercial club stated yeaterday was very
apparent, but It apparently did not make
any Impression on -th- member of that
body. "It 1 not that th city council
haa not done this or ' that, or the .other
thing, but that It has don nothing at all.
Is what the business men complain of.
Th business Interest of the city demand
some Immediate action and thla the coim
cilmen should realise. Th proposition ap
peara to me ' as -it doe to other business
men, perfectly plain. It Is a mere waste
of time arid words tq talk, of municipal
ownership. The city Is going to continue,
getting water through the, praaent plant
and th present plant will continue under
piivat ownership. The failure on th part
ot tha authorltle to recognise thla
U preventln. the aecuring of
tenalona.' Personally, 1 fall to sea how the
report of Expert Kterated can possibly alter
the vitally Important condltlona," said
President McDonal4. , .,
Manager Hart of the water work com
pany declined yeaterday to. dlacuai th mat
ter further, aaylng that hla vlewa on the
situation had already been- made public,
but h reiterated that hla company waa
prepared to make the Improvement de
manded by th business Interest of the
city -the moment th city council mad It
possibl for It to do so. - -

named his wire aa Dell Johnson Instead of

tn 18M he bought a farm In Madison
county. Later he sold the land, claiming
to be unmarried. Mrs. Johnson claims her
