after the notice of the formation of
the district had been posted and ad
verilsed, he went to the office of the
county commissioners in the court
house and asked to see the petition
which had been responsible for the
action of the board in voting for the
formation of the district; that he
was informed by Commissioner B.
iE. Cooney that the petition was in
the possession of said B. E. Cooney
and that said Cooney had no desire
or intention to show it to Genzberger
or anyone else; that as a consequence
of this kingly attitude upon the part
of one of Silver Bow's servants, Mr.
CGenzberger did not at that time be
come auwtre of 'the fact that the pe
titian was in reality fatally defective
in that it was signed by less than 50
pei' cent of the freeholders when the
law required at least 60 per cent,
but that later, after the legal timel
for protest -15 days- had passed,
he did succeed in seeing a copy of
the petition, and found that it dis
closed the aforementioned insuf
ficiency of signers.
Wherefore, Mr. Genzberger de
clares in his complaint, that improve
.'ment district No. 5 was illegally
formed; and seeks to enjoin the
county commissioners of Silver Bow,
Byron E. Cooney, Joseph M. Fabian
and Otto E. Simonson, from proceed

Water Situation in
Taking exception to editorial mat
ter with reference to the city water
situation in Livingston, thle mayor of
that city and members of the city
council have sent to the Bulletin an
explanation of the true state of af
fairs, which is given publication
The editorial in question was
bastd on alpptl'enltt erlrlneous in
formation supplied in news dis
Ipatches from Livingston, which dis
Spatches were printed in various
papers throughout tile state and pur
ported to show that the eity officialns
were combatting an application for;
lower' water rates which had been
presented to the state public service
commission. The letter of the'
Livingston officials, in full, is as'
July 19. 1919.'
ltditor Butte Bulletin.
Referring to your editorial of thel
161th inst. relative to the water
situation in Livingston, also reflect-,
ing on the honesty of the city of
ficials of L1ivingston. We are ccr
tainly surprised at the lack of
knowledge you possess as to the
water situation in this city. It is
quite evident that you have either
been misinformed by parties inter-i
ested in the Monida Trust companyl
j0or you are maliciously endeavoring
1 to mislead the people of Livingston
as to the true facts of the case. As
to the extravagance of tihe city of
ilicials, the records of the city are
open for inspection by the public at
all times and we court the fullest
investigation that the public may
wish to make as to the workings of
the city government.
In the first place the city of
Livingston has not filed a protest
.gainst a reduction of water rates
by the Monida Trust but is prepared
and intends to furnish the data
asked for in a letter from the public
utilities commission. A copy of
which letter is as follows:
Subject Docket No. 720.
I Mr. Elbert F. Allen,
We send herewith a copy of notice
of hearing to be held at the court
house in the city of Livingston,
MIont., July 23, 1919, at 9 o'clock
t. m., for the purpose of taking
'estimony on the question of the ap
plication oif Monida Trust for a
nodification of its rates charges for
furnishing water in the city of Liv
In this connection the commission
would be glad to have as mnuch in
ormllation as ipossible in regard to
the mnunicipal water plant, recently
constructed and now in operation,
as to its values, its earning capacity.
and expenses of operation; also a
trief statement to be filed as an e::
itibit covering the history of the
Yours very truly.
PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION.
For your information we would
state that the city of Livingston en
:teavored for a number of years to
urtchase the old water plant of the
Monida 'T'rust company, but the best
price we could ever get from them
was $t00,000, which was entirely
aut of the question, as the new up
!o-date plant of the city, which is
,worth about twice as much as the
ild water plant, was built for $225,
900. This is the amount authorized
my the official bond issue, which was
tarried by nearly a 10-to-1 vote of
the people, and in that connection it
might bie of interest to you to know
hat in 1918 Monida Trust reported
o the assessor of Park county, a
valuation of $81,400 on its water
L plant, and in 1919 a valuation of
$88,90)0. At the same time it re
ported to the public service commis
sion of the state of Montana a vala
ation of aplproximately $307,000,
and in 1919 reported depreciation of
laid water plant of about $119,000.
The increased pressure of the neow
city water plant will shortly result
in the reduction of the fire insurance:
rates of the city, which in itself, will
be a great benefit to the entire comn-;
munity, not only through increased
pressure, but through having 138
hydrants with the new system as
'onmpared with 111 hydrants which!
lie city had with the Monida Trusti
'omtpany. The new city plant has a
reservoir with a capacity of 1,000,
I00 gallons compared with the small!
reservoir of the Monida Trust com
many. which has a capacity of only
;00.000 gallons. (The gentleman
If color, which you refer to, is Ilprohb
ibly concealed in the new city

Furthermore, during the annualI

lways does, a imuddy andt unsani
:ary condition of the river water
nd rendering it unfit for donmestic
,onsumption, clean, pure water can
inly be furnished by a modern andi,
:trictly sanitary filtration process
tpproved by the state board of
;ealth, such as only the new city
vrater plant can furnish.
There is no doubt in our minds
where the people of ].i ini :.ton lan i
on the water question. As toar is v,
are concerned Ihe .llliid TI'rut t
company can give aw\\'ay lthir walr
if they want to. but you can resl

not going to turn lo\len thueir owni
