Sbout Water Works
Editor Herald
In my observations regarding
water works I did not intend to
bring on a newspaper discusion nor
did I intend to be captious or un
derrate the project of Idea the
correspondent of the Cosmopolitan
I wished simply to give my humble
opinion and to make my opinion
more tenable I will add the follow
ug Ideas calculations regarding
pressure are approximately correct
from a theoretical standpoint when
everything is supposed to be per
fection with smooth even surface
of tubes pipes perfectly straight
etc He will be required to over
come friction on 1000 feet of 3
inch tube 22 8 feet head or equal
to about onuohalf horse power at a
mile distance he would lose about
onefourth of60ponnds pressure
In practice however we shall find
that to overcome the friction of the
flow in 1000 feet of 3 inch tube it
will lose onefourth of its power at
a 1000 feet and at a mile distant
there would not be sufficient force
to throw a stream across the street
much less over a jacal And again
fires do not always occur in a direct
line with the works and each bend
would offer a material resistance
Ideas nominal notwithstanding
Now as to the fallacy of such a
long Hue of huso iijwould requ re a
drilled detachment of expert fire
men to connect and a large and
Strang four horse team to tiauspot1
the hose Take into consideration
the constant wear and tear of the
huso which would require to be
frequently renewed in addition to
the original cost which is about 60
cents per toot for four ply and 25
cent additional for each ply up to
six ply and the cost ol your four
horse team and expense of keeping
and we should have spent enough
to lay quite a respectable line of
ten1 inch mams which as I remark
ed before could be used in a com
plete system of waterworks As to
aj26 pump to do the work I have
nothing to say I would again sug
gest that the mayor and city conn
cil ask for plans and estimate for
waterworks when Mr Idea can
present his plans and specifications
ai d if found worthy I shall be
plea6edJto seethe contract awarded
to him with a chromo
