The time has come when Jefferson City must

we not give to have hydrauts In our yards and
along our streets in these times. Why there

and our cx)etic for supplies from tho river

The nolly system of supplying wator Is being

perfect success iu every way. The machinery,

inhabitants, aud spreads over a great deal of tor

lit would seem that It should not exceed that
amount fur Jefferson City.. But the advantages
it would afford would Justify an investment of
twice that amount. It would supercede the ne
cessity of a fire engine, as every part of theVlty
would be furnished with s supply pipe from
which by tho attachment of a a hose, a stream
as largo as the largest thrown by the strongest
fire engiuc, could be easily thrown over the
highest buildings In town. It would furnish an
unfailing supply of water for our gardens In the
drouthy days of summer and far our households
in tho dreary days of winter. -But

At the risk of being called grumblers, we in
the first Issue of the Joi'Rnai., wish to direct the
alteution of our City Fathers to a small building,
situated ou Jefferson street, which Is wrongfully
termed the City Calaboose. To aay that this
prison Is a disgrace. Is putting it quite mildly.
Mon, and even women, who transgress our City
Ordinances, should bo punished, and that, too,
without respect to station or color; but that
punishment, however strict, should be humane
as well as Just. To incarcerate man In our
present calaboose one night during the severe
weather of this aud the past week, If It did not
kill him, would at least cause him to suffer
greatly, and in all probability, Injure or maim
him for life. .
We understand that the County Court offered
the city tho use of one of the colls in the new
jail as a place of detention, on condition that the
city would pay the Jailor's fees, and that the
City Council refused to accept. Vt bether tills
be true or not, one fart can not be avoided that
the city MUST have a place wherein to detain
offenders against her laws, and that the present
place can not be used during Inclement weather.
The city authorities have the right to punish of
fenders for minor offenses, but there Is no law
to freeze them to death.
