The report of Mr. F. M. Boyd
published last week showing re
ceipts and disbursements of the sys
tem of water works and lights for
the city should have the attention
of the citizens. The income from
private consumers last year for
water and current was $5,185-38,
and from the city $4,554.08, mak
ing a total of $9,739.46. Under
the increase in rate which was only
in force for three months last year
the income for this year should be
about $6,ooo from private consum
ers and $5.200 from the city. We
take no account of meters, wiring
- and tapping and piping for that
should take care of itself, for the in
dividual who has it done pays for
it. The income then for this year
should be from these two scources
$11,2oo. The total cost last year
for operating, including salaries
and fuel was $6,07.32-$3,289.36
for salaries and $2.781.96 for fuel
which is just about the amount re
ceived from private individuals. In
other words the amount received

The fire which swept the busi
ness section of Baltimore on Sun
day and Sunday night was one of
the most disastrous confiagrations
in a number of years. The prop

loss of life has been reported. For
this much, at least, we have to be
It has been very little more than
a month since the Iroquois theatre
fire, with its fearful loss of life, hor
rified the country. At that time
the sympathy of the whole world
went out to the people of Chicago
in their distress and by that sym
pathy men and nations were knit
closer together. And in this last
disaster, incalculably lesser because
there was no loss of life, Baltimore
will receive the sympathy and the
aid of the country.
In the presence of great calamities
the world seems less cold, and it is
well that it is so.
There were several brilliant fiash
es of lightning on Sunday night and
the incandescent lights were almnost
as late as are the arc lights when
'the moon is expected to shine for a
few minutes about sundown. With
the arc lights on a moonlight sche
dule and the incandescent lights on
a lightning schedule our plant
ought to last a long time.
