THE CITY WATER.
What Can Be Done to Make It Bet?
Tue Virginian auuoaucerl vesterday
tbat Dr. F. 8. Hope, Health Officer for
tili? eiiy; Mr. L. C. Briusou, obuirnian
of the \\ u'.er COuiuiittee, aud Chief
Engineer ?V. T. Itobiueou would eall
upou Mr. Colcroan, tbe superintendent
o( tbo water company, aud require
bim to uleuu out tbo reservoir iu ord?r
tbat tbe water might be belttr. Tbese
gentlemen mot Mr. Coleuiau und Mr.
VYurd, tbe president of tbe couipauy,
by upppoiutuieut at 1 ::>l) p. iu. yoater
day at tbu water conipauy'B office.
Mr. Brinson before going there, got
tbe water couttaet aud tbeu consulted
tbo City Attorney iu regard to what
tbe uuuiuiittee could do. After getting
advice frum bim tbe geutleiuau met
tbe Water Committee ae stated above.
Their lirt>t request was that tbe
reservoir be cleaned out. To this Mr.
Coleruuu replied that it could not bo
done uuless tbe city would take the
ribk of tires (or at loust sixty hours, as
it would take forty sight hours to
pump the reservoir out aud .till it
agaiu, and that it would take at least
twelve hours tu elcau it.
To this proposal the Cbief Engineer
would uot give bis consent. The com
mitten then wanted to know why a
bituilar connection could uot be made
the same as tbere was before the reser?
voir was built. Mr. Colman replied at
tbat time there was only about 3,000
galloua of water used daily; now tbere
are over 300,000 used. If the connec?
tions were made the pipes between
Portsmouth aud Suffolk would not
stand tbe pressure tbat would huve
I to be put on them, bb they
I are made of thin iron, but it is the in
teutiou of theoumpany to replace these
with heavier ones boou. He said that
the company would raise the pipe
through which the water passes from
thrui from tbu bottom ot the reservoir
anil the same thing in tbe lakes and that
possibly that would do considerablo
good. Ho further eaid that the water
iu Suffolk wasmuoh worse than it was
Mr. Brinson then asked what oausetl
it. Mr. Colemau eaid he thought that
it was ouused by tbo decomposition of
vegetable matter in the lake.
Mr. iirinsou tbeu wauted to know
why this had not occuricd before, as
the city lies boon using the water binoe
April, 1888, and thero hat been no
cause for complaint, but ou tbe other
baud continued praiso. Tho company
could give no unswor. He suid
the oompany was willing to do
all they could to remedy the evil
but jufct where to begin they do uot
know, unless the improvements nieu
tionetl remedies tbu evil. Tbuy claim
that their stund pipe, one hundred fset
high, will be ready lor use by October
let, and then tboro will be no cause (or
complaint. That tbe water il pure no
out- dieputee, but (or the past mouth it
bad tasted bad and had an unpleasant
odor to it.
Tbe cuntract says that the water com?
pany shall (uruish tho city with good,
pura and wholetouie water Itum Lake
Kiiby, and that it ehull be at all times
as pure us tbat in tbe lake.
Mr. Brinson will visit Lake Kilbj to?
day to get a Biwuplo of the water and
bring it back with him, and if it is
(otiud tu be better than that furnished
tbe city tbe company will be required
to comply with the contract immediate?
ly or forfeit the same,
Tbe question o( tbo water is stirring
the people up generally, a number be?
lieving that it is unhealthy, and have
refused to either drink or use it. It is
to the company's interest to remedy
thin evil ae soou as possible.
WHAT nOlTOlt hope ua.s To say ABOUT
The Virginian representative oalled
upon Dr. P. S. Hope, health officer,
lust night to aeo what he had to say
iu regard to tho condition of the city
water. In answer to onr question aa
to bis opinion of the water to the
health of the city be said that he did
not consider that the water was in
jtirous to tbe health, but that it was
very unpleasant to the olfactory, but
tbere was uo telliug what might come,
It ho oould trace oue case of aick
uuss to it or if he should at any other
time do bo he would make immediate
demands that the reservoir should be
cleaned and all other stops that was
necessary to improve tho water be
Ho hoped tbat tho improvements
promised by tho biipermteudeut as
slated above, which will be made tu
day, will have the desired effect, but if
that doos not, then the reservoir will
have to bo emptied and tho city take
tho ohanoes of tires, etc, during that
time. He did not (eel willing to issue
any peremptory order yet, because he
saw no cause (or any alarm.
It is truo, ho said, the water is not
what it has boou. The coaipany ad?
mits tbat and uro williug to do all they
can to remedy il, said he. However,
I am iu tbe fight to stay, aud if the
proposed improvements do not have
tbo desired effect, as Health Offi?
cer 1 will act iu tbat capacity and make
suob demands as are necessary.

S*la)ing Upon a Prejudice.
While the Fllver advocates are laying
particular uud peculiar stress upou the
term "British gold standard," for the
purpose of playing upou a prejudice,
they Ignore the fuct that Great Britain
stuck to silver in hor iw tern possessions
long after the other nations of the world,
including the United .States.had stricken
silver down. And Great Britain is evon
now engaged in organising a currency
system for Hongkong and some of her
far eastern colonies, tho basis and unit
of which is to bo a silver dollar of a cer?
tain weight and fineness. It is well
enough to give evon " tho devil his due. "
The Uomuica of 1873.
The "great crlmo of 1878," by which
the silvor dollar was "stealthily" and
"fraudulently" demonetized, is, like
all the other free silver fads, a mere
flotion. As the official records of con?
gress show, the measure was considered
and defeated from time to time through
four sessions of congress until it was
finally passed. The cause of free silver
is so had that its champions are inca?
pable cf presenting auy truths in its fa?
vor, aud hence their resort to romance.

a st! ip from 200 to UOO feet wido aud
about 1,200 foet long. It also extended
several hundred feet into the lake, tho

was thrown up into a series of great

and brokeu to piooce, while everything

lives near Puuta Ourdu, Fin., has grown

was blind, partially deaf and bald mid
had becu eo for many years. About that
time, however, he suddenly recovered
bis eyesight mid bearing, und bis hair
began to gratv. Now Mr. Qofit hears
und sous us well as ho ever did, und bis
head is covered with a growth of black
hair. As his eyesight strengthened aud
his hair grew a marked change occurred
in Mr. Goff's physical condition, and
from being a decrepit mnn, hardly ublo
to walk, hu became as strong and active
as u youth of 20 years. The wrinkles
on his .skiu disappeared, and he now
looks fret.h and youthful.
The oaea has puzzled tho physicians.
They say tho man is entirely rejuvenat?
ed and may live 90 years longer. They
aesert that tho old tissues have been re?
placed by now, and that physically Mr.
Hoff is not more than 20 years old. So
youthful did Mr. GofT find that last
week he married a handsome youug
girl. To look at tho couple ons would
never suspivt that there was any dif
forence iu their ages, although tho
groom is<70 yeara elder than his brido.

Franklin and Edeuton, vtbb the attrac
tiuu at the Fair Grounds Tneiday
ufternoon, and those that went out !
wishing for aud expooting to see a well
played and oxailiug game wcro not dis?
appointed, for it took eleven long in -
uiugs to decido whoso (gamo it should
he. At the eud of tho ninth the sooru
lieing a tie, 1U to 10, but tho visitors
were fortunate euough to got tholneedsd
run with eleven luuingH, thereby win
niug the game. Features: Tho. good
hitting aud iuflolding of both teams,
except in the fourth inning, when the
Franklins becanio rattled and let iu
two runs before they could put our
boys out aud good hitting of tho
visitors. Score 11 to 12. Umpire, J,
('ami: No. '1? Wednesday evoning at
about 4:80 Umpire Bond called play
ball with our boys at the bat, and what
they did for thoso nine little Franklin
Kildces was indeed refreshing Ioub and
surprising to them. Who would have
thought that our boys could succeed in
capturing aud picking the vory last
feather from thoso much talked of Kil
dees, but nevertheless, it is a fact, for
in the three times that our boys wore
at tho bat, thoy knocked out eighteen
runs, while all the little Kildeea could
do with Makely, our boy pitoher, was
to secure three eggs to take home with
them. They did not hit the ball but
for one safe hit.
Mills started in to pitch for the visi?
ters and was batted out and gave way
to Mr. llryan, who fared worse, for
our boys had a good eye and simply
smashed the ball out iu the field for
one, two and three baggors. While
this was going on in tho beginning of
the fourth with our hoys at the bat.
Mr. Dauiole, our catoher, was on third
base, the ball was batted aud scoured
by a fielder aud thrown to Mr.Kimbail,
the Franklin catcher, to cut off Mr.
Daniels, who was running in home at
Mr. Ivimball secured the ball and
got dirootly in front of Mr. Daniels, 1
consequently there was a collision, and
Mr. Kimball was knocked down. This
seemed to make the little Ktlldees ashy
and they refused to play longer, con?
sequently the game was won by
