As there seems to be a general misunder
standing as to the ordinance granting the
Council Bluffs City Water Works company
a new franchise upon which the people of
the city will be called upon to vote Tues
day, August 6, Mayor Macrae, through
whose efforts mainly the measure as it
now stands was submitted, has deemed H
Incumbent on him to address the following
public communication respecting same to
the voters:
As there seems to be a misunderstanding
with reference to the proposed water works
franchise. I deem It my duty to publicly
call attention to the following facts:
It Is well known that I favor the owner
ship of the water works by the city. We
have been trying' for three years to accom
plish this, but for financial and other rea
sons, we have not yet succeeded, and can
not hope to do so for some time. What
shall we do In the meantime?
The company Is now running Its works
by tolerance only, and we cannot exr -t
It to spend money to extend and enlace
Its plant without any right to keep its old
or new pipes In the streets, even If It could
raise the money to do so. But It must
be clear to every one that It cannot raise
money to put In new mains without the
right to keep them In the ground. If the
franchise does not carry, we must for nn
Indefinite time leave the implement district
Deere, Wells Co., Fuller A Johnson
Shugart Co., and the Union Transfer com
pany have all burned out and have all
been a loss to the city. We can get no
new industries without fire protection, and
we have hern losing great establishments
by fire. From our experience. If there are
more fires, w cannot hope to hold the
houses we have now. To fall to get prompt
relief means ruin to the wholesale and com
mercial Interests.
What Should Be Done.
Under these circumstances, there seems
but one thing to do and that Is to give the
water company such rights that It can
raise money and reinforce the system
where the very existence of our wholesale
district Is at stake, and at other important
points like South Ninth street, West Coun
cil Bluffs and other rapidly growing resi
dential sections, where the people have t
long been taxed without receiving water
service, and at the same time reserve the
rlRht to take the plant Just as soon as the
city can raise the money. This Is all the
proposed franchise does. It does not give
the conrpany a single right except to keep
Its pipes In the street until the city can
get means to buy, and expressly provides
that when It. does So It shall pay nothing
for tho franchise, and that the company
shall receive only the value of Its plant as
fixed by an Inpartlal board, less one-half
the cost of making the appraisement.
While this Is absolutely everything the
company gets the city will secure ample
water supply for the Implement district
and the growing residential seotlona, and
will he able In addition, to get new mains
whenever It will order one hydrant on an
average for each 660 feet, and when the
city does not feel able to order hydrants,
supply pipes can he obtained on unpaved
streets whenever there Is one consumer for
every seventy-five feet. Under the old
ordinance the city had to take a hydrant
for every 400 feet of main ordered laid, and
the company only hod to run fifty feet for
a consumer. Under the proposed franchise
when the company builds fifiO feet for a
hydrant or seventv-flv feet for a con
sumer, the city will have the right at all
times to fix the hydrant rental and con
sumers' rs-te. while under th old ordi
nance, both the hydrant rental and con
sumers' rate were fixed for twenty-five
What Company Mast Do.
At present the old franchise having ex
pired, tfcere Is no way to compel the lay
ing of other mains or sutitiiv nines, even
If the company had any means of raising
llig mono.. In Hrt MA th. ,,..... 1
cliises requires the c'omtianv to build hih
service systems for all hill districts when-
keep track of what the company snends
and where, and gives the city full access
to the company's books for the purpose of
ascertaining what the rates should be, a
right t lie city does not now have. This
rlKht of examination of the books, will
from time to time, be of Immense value
to the city, when the council takes up
the revision of the rates and the passage
of a new rate ordinance. All these things
are obtained by the city for the naked
right to maintain Its works until the el'y
buys, a rifrht which the company Is now
enjoying. Of course, we all want the com
pany to run Its works until the city can
make some other arrangement, either to
buy or build. There Is no contract pro
posed as to rates. There seemr to be an
Impression that there Is some connection
between the proposed franchise and the
revision rate ordinance, and some have
even gone so far as to say that the rates
fixed by the recent ordinance would be In
force during the entire life of the fran
chise If It carries, and that the council
would have no right to change them. This
Is all a mistake. The Iowa statutes give
the city council the right at all times to
revise and reflx the rates, and It Is ex
piesfcly so held In the Creston case. If the
1 franchise carries, the council has the right
! to fix the rates. Whenever and as often
as It sees fit. The people have the right.
at all times, while the franchises lasts, to
el.-ct members of the council who will give
them just tates.
Tli.u I- n rnn.tln,i nhil.,,..
t ho franchise and the question of rates.
I nder the law, no contract could be made
as to rates, and the company can collect
Just the sumo rates whether the franchise
carries or not.
The question simply Is: Shall we enable
the company to save the city from dam
age until we can buy or build? If tho
franchise carries It confers no rights upon
the company It Is not enjoying except as
to time, and large improvements are as
sured. If It fails, those who defeat It
must take the responsibility of stopping
Important improvements costing thousands
of dollars, largely to be expended for labor
here at iiome, and of keeping new Indus
tries out of town, and Jeopardizing those
which are here.

done In this city, and many more to the
crops of the state. A total of 2 41 Inches
of rain fell between midnight and 9:30 this
morning, when the storm cleared. This was
not as great as the storm of a few days
ago, but the wind that accompanied it
caused It to do more damage, and It fell
In a shorter space of time.
The greatest damage seems to have been
done to the telephone companies In this
city.' The Mutual suffered the worst and
many of its 'phones were damaged. A num
ber of smttil fires were started by lightning
and a number of persons injured by light
ning, though no one was killed. This
morning, during the heaviest part of the
storm. It was necessary for the street car
company to shut down.
Because of the storm the river quickly
rose to a stage of 12 feet and the residents
In the southeast bottoms were again In
danger. It is believed that the heavy rain
here will raise the river at Ottumwa so
that still greater danger Is pending there.
The damage to the crops over the state,
which were In no condition for a rainstorm
of any kind, is very great.
