Bomo were coup s from Troy finished In splin

ware the tuncent expresses commonly known
in town as the toncent distresses
The tencent distresses were tim Invention ot
a rich ali eccentric citizen named Carpenter
whose motto In life was that 1 man must keep
his shape up even It he hasnt got 1 cent In
pursuance of this admirable principle bo used to
buy 1 new suit and go abroad every year or so
and o one of these trips he became Imbued
with tho Idea of tarnishing Saratoga with 1
species of vehicle that should supply tho need
of horse cars and carry persons or bundles b
tween any two points for ten cent He started

horses died of overwork and every owner of a

any kind In Saratoga had hitched the two
together and gone Into business on his
own hook In the tencent distress line

Water but n Iprate lllnh Pressure
Uwpiml lv WonlU K TreaveadOHalv Cat
Gen C I T Collls Deputy CommIssioner of
PublIc Works has prepared the following art
vie abont the citys water supply and the system
distributing It giving the reasons why tall
buildings down town are not likely to secure
from the city I pressure sufficient to carry water
to thlr upper storlcsi
t tlIlr Iloreal
There Is really nothing In the water supply
question to exolto tho least alarm Btrlp the
agitation of tho encouragement It receive from
those who control largo bodies of water within
a radius of fifty miles of us for which they are
seekIng a make and nothing Is loft of It
Tho problem which confronts us Is one of dis
tribution not of supply and oven this though
serious Is In no way alarming
The present average dally consumption Is I I
little less than SOO millions of gallons yet the
supply on band In the several storage and other
reservoirs Is 18000 millions of gallons In
other words wo havo ninety days supply on
hand
The Increase In dally consumption during the
past five years has been 1 millions so that In
1UOO wo will be using 230 millions a day by
which time the darns lt Carmel and Atnawalk
will lie completed giving tom a volume of J170QO
millions additional gallons making a total of
93000 millions
Five years later at the furthest the great dam
at Cornell will bo finished Increasing the sup
ply by 20000 millions making a grand total of
00000 millions of gallons of pure water well
protected against contamination to furnish a
demand of nt tho utmost 400 millions aday
And back of all this aro tho waters of Lakes
George alt Champlaln ant the vast acres of
Adirondack lakes
Perhaps this Is I going far enough Into tho
future and yet Iaka 1rlo Is left to us ono of
those great fresh water seas which Clod created
for sonic wiser purpose than navigation After
that tho deluge
So much for tho question of supply
I confess that the sfttcm of distribution I
not so satisfactory and that It In I ono which
should receiveas Ills I receiving tho attention
It deserves Those who havo given tho subject
no thought ant jot speak of It as glibly as they
do upon every other subject which they take
for granted they know all about arc demand
ing moro pressure Incrented pressure to reach
time upper floors of tim Immense lasers of
offices piled fifteen or twenty deep In lImo vicin
ity of Wall street Increased pre uro for time
upper stories of dwellings erected above the
water supply level and Inceased pressure to
meet the demands of serious conflagrations
1 am Informed that there has bwn no well
grounded complaint of lack of water at I lire In
i ears nor Is I there likely to to for some years to
Mine
Tho pressure necessary to forco water to the
opof thu tall buildings now being erected would
play havoc with the plumbing of tho buildings
down town which were erected I quarter of a
century ago for water will refuse to climb until
It has exhausted every other effort to escape
Surely the pcoplowho are thus in leopnrdynro
entitled to some consideration I ho plumbing
referred to uuu gauged when now to resist a
> resuroof 40 pound to time MIHUVO inch Tho
iresent downtown pressure Is 15 pounds Indiiy
time and 25 pounds at night Increase It 10 or
15 pounds which mlvht carry U to an elevation
of Jundl at Wall street carrJ something would
have to Rlvu war I un announcement wa
made today that the pressure would be In
creased to 40 oreen 03 pounds on the let of
January next all tho plumbers in New York
could not get tho hotels olllco biilhlingH apart
nprl
utmt houses anil tenement houses and tho
homes of small consumers in condition to mucet
the change I would b a great season for
plumbers but bow the landlords would howl
I II hardly to bo credited but yet U IH I true that
builders erect bulldinga on the outskirts of thu
city where no water mulnshnvo been laid perfect
heir interior plumbing and then In Limo rule of
liuied taxpayer demand that water pines
ahalb laid immediately to meet I wall n hlch
hey have anticipated perhaps by < cveral years
So I Is with the corporations which are now
reeling buildings with time object of getting 1
maximum rental from inlmmum area of land
I they nave gone attend without seriously con
IderlnK tho water question they have only
themes to blame They aro ut 01
erect cisterns on their upper Moors and
mmp up all limo water they need provided
hey pay tor It at It registers Itself In
the muter but the tlmo Is almost here
when this pumping must b dune at
certain hours and under certain restriction
else those who tap tho Stow nearest Its nourco
may divert the current from thosu lower down
and In case of flru may worK serious Injury
Many years ago the largest brewing estahlldh
bent In the world located on time south side of
hoThnmo to sudden lack ot
Tbnloo camo a sltdln stop for
voter Its artesian well having refused to tlow
Investigation showed that a similar concern
upon time opposite bank of tIme river had tapped
the same subterranean I stream Of cour < > thls I
led to a litigation but tlio Master ot limo ItolK
with I Solomons wl dom decreed that eel
night have twelve hours out of Ibo tmcimty
four and for aught I know the decree Is I still in
force
In regard to dwelling houses In elevated por
tons of tho uptown district the cistern must
bo availed of until the new pumplni tntloii ut
Ugh Bridge is I completed In canto localities
locUtu
theoe cisterns will fill during the aught time in
thers time ordinary can pump attached to the
service plpo I not n very expensive luxury for
a good citizen who hits faith that uo arc doing
our best for his relief I find some few people
irejndlced final list time use nf I cistern whereas
he fact U I that lImo water so stored having time
collie Is much purer than that which tlnws
Irectly from time main tn tho faucet Inder
any circumstances I prefer for my own house
water that his gone through this filtering
Process
The real present need of this city for all put
poets is 130 million Latluna u day In othor
words 23 per celt of time distribution Is winte
lhmtmi Is being remedied UH dlslrbutul I possible
Although braver twenty yearn the law Imas re
ulred a meter t bo located In every building
xceptlng thoio uul exclusively tiC dwellings
liere are today only 31000 inntcpt In le
One advnntaKOof the meter Is that I Indicates

same reaxoii I InHove 1 time revenue of the
Water Hurean Ial bu Immediately Increased 28
per cent and the waste decreased In the same
proportion et
Upon limo subject of a better distribution to
meet now exigencies such UN extraordlnaryaltl
tildes tho fact should hu l remembered that
municipalities I rarely 1001111 I time emerecncy
Is upon them t antI then thoy I urn of ton do tIme

Among other things ho said
In doallugwlth this subject we have to do
not with an abstract theory not with a more
system of philosophy but with a present fact
and a fact without parallel In the worlds his
tory This fact requires to bo accounted for
Will chance account for It Hy no means
Does chance account for the Gulf Stream that
strange river In the great deep flowing con
stantly In the same direction sInce Immortal
time The Christian faith has been as It were
a moral Gulf Streama steady uniform cur
rent of faith and devotion never ceasing never
changing for nearly SOOO years Its existence
cannot now bo explained on the theory that It
merely happened so Does IniDosturo account
for It This Is still more preposterous If our
Lord was an Impostor time spread of Ills revela
tions would have been marvellous more ex
traordluary than If It had been propagated by
divine powers The Gospels give us a full ac
count of time Revelation of Christ How should
wo regard them As mere human historical
documents they have all tIme marks of veracity
We read In them of the establishment of n new
religious system with definite doctrines Insti
tutions and laws Wo look around over the
world today and we see that same system In
active operation and those Identical doctrines
Institution and laws believed In practised auo
enforced In not this time strongest of argument
for time truth of the Oorpel record Tho annual
celebration of the Fourth of July for Instance Is
a conclusive proof of tho fact of uur national In
dependence and of the truth of historical records
of It Ho Is the annual keeping of Easter a proof
no less convincing of the truth at time Gospel
testimony to the fuel of the resurrection of our
blessed Lord An unbroken line of tradition
makes a historical chain as irrefragable in the
one case as In the other The acceptance of Limo
simple truth of the Gospel history solves every
difficulty the rejection of It strikes at the
foundation of all historical proof of whatever
kind resting on human evidence
