T"-'- ? WStl, Tntamlaiit
The Reporter for Tiie News axd

about Winnsboro's having water
works and electric lights, sought Intendant
Coan, and had the following
interview wi'li him:
Mr, Coan, I have heard it mentioned
on the streets that the town council
was discussiug placing a system of
water works and electric lights here,
crlnf- frnfh is fhr>rr> in (his?
"This matter has been discussed on
the streets and in different meetings
of the town council."
Dj you really mean to say that ihe
project is seriously considered and
that there is a chance ot our having
these great conveniences?
"Our object at present is to agitate
the matter ami ?:ct all of the information
possible. We hope la'cr on to

town as t-> ihe question, and some
lime in the summer to have a mass
luceiing where it cm bo diseusscd.
Tuis will bedoni, of course, before an
election is o.'dcred."
You will make ti.e?c improvements
by taxation asa matter of course?
"Yes, then: wiil lwve to be an election,
and bonds lioa'cd for the purpose.'*
You have talked with a great many
about it, have vou n jt ?
I - - " -
'les, Willi a tew; wc commenced
to talk about it within the last few
Have you hcsicl much opposition to

About what would it cost to put in
a good sYi.cm water works?
estimate would be guess
wnvlr. I h?vi; >o!ni lierurcs showing
what it c'St in o:bcr towns, for instance
in Yorkviiie, it cost $17,000.
The water these is obtained from a
branch, the stand pipj is about 128
feet high, and holds from 2o0,000 to
300,000 gallon?, I should thiuk. The
principal c )st of oper?ting the Vorkviiic
plant is $30 pr:r month for an
engineer, $1.2o f.-r wood, and there is
some slight expense for keeping the
pipes, &c , in repair. We have an idea
that the electric light plant and the
wa=cr works could bo bnilt for very
little more tbau one of llpm would
cost. As to the supply cf water we
do aot know now whether it would
be better to use an artesion well or
a branch. A great many of the towns
are using the well."
Would you have any difficulty, you
think, in floating the bonds?
"No, 1 do not think so: it seems to
us that a six per cent bond could be
floated at par for forty or lifty years.
Our neighboring towns have done so,
j and I do not sec why Winnsboro can
not do as well. rVe think further that
! the rental for the water and the lights
would pay the operating expense*,
and the only increase i:i taxation would
be to raise enough revenue to uieet
the interest on the bonds. The inCl
Ca se in taxation would, again, be to
a great rxlent ofT-ot by a reduction in
fire insurance. Anderson obtained a
reduction of 50 per ccnt alter putting
in water works."
