anylnR on the. same subject and occasion:
"We need more, harmony between the
Water board, tho city commissioners and
the citizens before we movo forward at

Which .provokes city commissioners.
"It Is a queer thlnK," says Commis
sioner Ryder, "that men of Intelligence
do not understand, or seem to appreciate
the fact that the city .commissioners
huve nothing whatever to say about any

The city commission hits no voice In any
thing touching its power' or control. We
have no more to do with Water board
matters than has any other citizen or

In this connection as any city commis
