WATERWORKS EXTENSION BILL
Supplementary Measure, Appropri
ating 522,."500, Introduced.
At the meeting of the City Council jes
terday afternoon Chairman Carroll of tho
Waja and Means Committee introduced a
bill providing for a supplcrientary appropri
ation of 2,500 from 'Waterworks revenue
for tho division of Waterworks extension
of the Water De"partmcnL The measure, in
another form, has been in Mr. Carroll's
possession cier since the general appro
priation bill nas passed by the Municipal
Asemblv. An Item of J.W.0CO for Water
works estensiDn wai clipped from the gen
eral bill, end the emplojes of the division
have been compelled to continue at work
without salary on that aceounL
Certain ofliciali, in tho City Hill were of
the opinion Uiat tho amount was rot ap
propriated in August because of a pre
sumed opposition of some members of the
Assembly to the proposition for a filter
plant for SL Louis. It there was any such
opposition. It evidently hat, been removed,
or the subject has assumed a different
phase. The Waterworks extension division
has charge of the cleaning of the Compton
Ilill Reservoir, and the supervision of all
improvement". The appropriation would
cover expenses and salaries
Tho Committee on Municipal .Affairs held
a short session berore tho Council meet
ing and considered the Exposition bond bill.
Chairman Richards stated that his commit
tee will not report the measure until some
time after eltcUon. Tho Council p tssed tho
Houo bill authorizing the vacation of an
alley between Cherokee Ftreet. South
Broaifway urd South Thirteenth street,
which will enable tho W. J. Lemp Brewing
Company to erect a new building In the
block. The Houso of Delegates convened
last night and did nothing. Both bodies ad
journed untU next Friday.
