Committee Favors Purchasing
ACTION ON SOCIAL EVIL PLEASED THE MINISTERS
POLICE THINK THEY
HAVE SNEAK THIEF
Alderman Thomas Wilkerson. chair
man of the special committee ap
pointed some months ago to employ a
water expert and ascertain the value
of the Albnquerque Water Supply
company plant and what a similar
system would cost, lnt night reported
to the council tne progress of tne
committee. The other members of the
committee are Aldermen Tnumas Isn
erwood and Louis llfeitt. Besides set
ting forth the figures furnished by tne
expert employed, t tie committee re
commended thnt the council begin
negotiations wlui iue Water Supply
company for the purchase of its
In his report, A. S. Kiffle, the ex
pert employed, gave the value of, the
present plant at $258,064, and esti
mated that a similar plant would cost
$290,390, thus placing the wear and
tear and depreciation of the plant now
operated by tne Water Supply com
pany during the years It has been In
service at $32,236.
But Mr. Riffle, In his report, does
not think the plant owned by the
Water Supply company adequate to
th ETnwine needs of the city, and bo
sets forth In figures, In tabulated
form, what would be the cost of a
plant adequate to the growing needs
of Albuquerque. In itemizing the
equipment of such a plant, giving the
cost of each of twelve different de
partments, Mr. Riffle finds that what
he thinks would be an adequate plant
would cost $533,566. The report both
on the old plant and what a new plant
would cost were very lengthy, so
lengthy that every member of the
council and the mayor objected . to
having them read at the meeting, and
by the unanimous consent of the coun
cil the clerk was instructed to begin
with the first ward and have them
passed around among the councilmen
so that each would have plenty of
time to read them. Alderman Wilker
son said that the clerk could just pass
him up when he came to the third
However, the report of the commit
tee was adopted and the cjerk was
ordered to draw a warrant for $600 to
pay for the services of the water ex
pert, and the committee was author
ized to open negotiations with the
Water Supply company for tho pur
chase of the water works. Alderman
Hanley said that he would like to
know what they would sell for.
No opinion was expressed last night
as to what the council thought of the
report of the expert. Regarding tie
costs of the report, it is understood
that the Water Supply company is to
reimburse the city for half of tne ex
pen Res incurred by the expert,

'- tvonj-the report of the special water
committee, theiCouncll passed to the
report of the social evil committee,
f which Alderman Harrison was
chairman. The report of the commit
tee was very complete and so in ac
cordance with the sentiment of the
best neonle of the city that a comit
tee of clergymen, who had called ut
the council aDParently for the pur
pose of seeing what was done with
the Question, called the chairman from
the council chamber to congratulate
him and the committee and to thank
As the clergymen left the city
building, one of them was heard to
say: "They would have laughed at
us if we had proposed Huch a thing
three vears ago." This was not very

not mean it exactly in that light, ko

that have been made by property
owners against Contractor Farreil,
the man who has an agreement with
the city council to renumber houses
and placard streets, the council last
night demanded that Mr. Farreil fur

IN HONOR OF MISS
The Washington Post, of a recent
date, says that Mrs. Fairbanks, wife
of the vice president of the United
States, gave a reception to Miss
Claude Albright, of Albuquerque,
member of the English Savage opera
company, and which was attended by
several hundred guekts, including
representatives from official, diplomat
ic and resident circles of Washing
ton. The Post says: "Miss Albright
delighted the guests with, two songs,
one the famous Calve number from
Carmen, and the other an English love
The Post, in a lengthy criticism of
the play of Alda, by the Savage com
pany, has this to say about Miss Al
bright: , .
"Miss Claude Albright deserves es
pecial mention for ber excellent work
as AmnerlB. Her voice is full and
rich, and possesses operatic qualities
well in keeping 'with her pleasing
stage presence and dramatic power
of expression. Her work was greeted
with repeated salvos of applause."
