After the document had been read,
Mr. a R. BullooSt, pnsident of the

fect on tha tVruni iL President llad

merely aa . option, .Mr. Bullock rr
pied: "Wabouglit fie plant of the

It was a bona & le ttaut'action, find
will be carried out to tha letter. The
action of, the sx'.gielaivo Council will
have no effect ou Urn tray.e. We made
the denl with. ibe va w of adviuciiig
our own interests. We rea'itad the
fact that two rival wator compauioj
cannot exist here. There is no city in
the United. States where two water
companies ate i,mcte sful operaiiou.
Rival gas Ctjuapanies can get along, be

"You eay ;two gss companies can

"Yes, sir." :
"Well, I am interested in knowing,
because we hava beun told they could
not." ;i ,4 v
Mr, BuMotk.refUTiing his talk, said:
"In pnTchwBiug the plant of the old
company we ara advancing one step
forward in our : purpose to build a
plant that will. meet every require
ment, not only at present, bat for fifty
years to come, v. We regard
MEMPHIS AS OKI Of THbe FROORBeMTI
of the country, and are anxious to get
in here. With view to that end, we
have had correspondence' with a num
ber of your leading citisens, followed
up by personal interviews. We
thought it best to secure tbe old plant
because w fulls appreciated the dis
comfort and inconvenience cf digging
up tbe streets for the pnrprse of lay
ing new pipes. W are happy to (ay
that onr negotiations resulted satisfac
torily and agreeably toa 1 concerned."
In answer to Mr. James Lee, Mr. Bul
lock said that it was contemplated to
locate the works one and one-qmrter
miles above the present site, iu order
to avoid any dancer of mixture of
Wolf river water and the sewerage out
pourings of the city.
President Iladden then asked if
Mr. Bollock bad good reasons for re-
ecting the MissiSHipni river ss
source of supply. He replied that he
bad. tbe main objection neins Hie ex
pense incident to a shifting channel.
He figured that .
it woclo cost $2,450,000
to draw the water from the Mls3is-"PP1-
Mr. liuiiot x was men seuea u ne

Bullock would get rid of the scLm
likely to cover the eurlace of the wa

plied: "By a system of perforated
filicg plutes. The water will be
drawn from one reservoir to another,
will be thoroughly aerated and puri
fied, and will be pumped lrom t;,e
reservoirs i ito a stamlpipe, and from
there supplied to consumers, insuriog
purity and thorough aeration.
in answer to Mr. Montgomery s in
quiry as to whether there were further
objections to Mississippi river water,
Mr. Bullock said: "Yes. that water
carries a large quantity of extraneous
matter in mecnanlcal suspension oi a
nature that is injurious to boilers, and
hence objectionable to consumers who
desire to use it as motive power."
In order to remove all doubt as to
the character of the contract with the
old company, Mr. Bullock altered the
lancuage of bis proposition referring
to the Durcbase and described it as ab
solute, striking out tbe word "option."

the reports that the control of the

to whether negotiations are now pro

It is stated with authority that ths
Louisville, New Orleans and Texas
Railwsy Company will at an early day
submit a proposition to the people of
Bolivar county, Mis?,, to vote $100,000
in bonds for a line of road to run
through the western border of the
county, starting from Huntington and
running, we presume, to the northern
end of the county, and thence east to
the main track at some point in Coa

through an already well settled and

and: will give to the planters on the

certain approach to market.
