The Question of a Water Supply
is Still Unsolved.
THE: NEEt) VERY URGENT.
An Effort Will Now be'I'ut Forth to
Float a Local Stock Company
Mr. CornUh Makes a Gen
erous Offer, and Is' Fol
lowed by Mr-Vail.
If Flagstaff doesn't got an abundant
supply nf water it will not linfor want
f piopntiudiiig new schemes. Within
the. pastfcw weeks tbc scheme, of
getting water from the Jack Smith
spiingwbs advocated befoTu a public
meeting, -anti fur. a lime it met with
considerable favor, but an apparently
more glittering scheme of getting the
supplV-fryni Oak creek was 'propounded
by" 'Mr. Burns of tiff1 A. & P. Railroad
Lompaii, which for a short time
km eked the til si proposition sk high.
A III I In consult tation of the latter
proposal, however, revealed the fart
that thu town would have considerable
diftieult in making an offer that would
suit the company Mr. Bums repre
sented, or at any rate in making such
an otter that would induce the com
pan to put in the necessary plant and
put thcmiclvs under contract to sup
pi tlie water. Consequently the spe
cial council meeting of Monday after
noon waH not a very lively affair at the
start. Thu deliberations hung lire anil
no one seemed to have any suggestions
In the absence of the ma or, Mr.
Vail was appointed to the chair, anil
after some discussion as to the prob
able amount that could be realized
from domestic consumption, David
Babbitt was called upon to give some
idea at to the amount the town cotilil
a Hold to pa for tile plugs.
' Mr. Babbitt said be was in hope),
the could get some'hiug definite and
bear fiom Mr." Ciirulsli before the
would be called upon to make apiopo
sition'to any outside part. It was
i nl a wek or leu daS ago the IiaiI
i qui hied Mi. Coiuh.li to sie what
could be done, and the themselves
had ncicr tried to do an thing.
A dim lesion then took place as to
ihi-lclalhe melits of the Jack Smith
spiing and Oak Creek, Mr. Babbitt
iohit mlii g that the mountain watei
a m fliru nl for a limn domlethe
size of this, and the cost of biingiug the
water here, and the i mining expense
Would be much I em than getting the
siippl fiom Oak creek.
The Council geueiall concurred in
Mr. Babbitt's pioposition, but Mr.
(iiim pointed out that for a portion of
the car the snow was tifteen feet deep
below that spring, and if a break
should iceur in the pipes it would take
a man three mouths to find it.
At tills 81 age A. T. Cornish enteied
t lie loom and matters began to get a
little more lhely. In repl to a ques
tion put by' Mr. Babbitt be said the
should make an offer of $2,000 for
fort lidiauts. It was. a proposition
that would lie buidensome ou the town
and it was a poor proposition for who
owrwoulJ own the water works, for
un leu the town inej-rasnl they would
be ill the soup, lie thought they could
get more revenue than had been calcu
lated upon, Tho 'business houses and
familli s should give 1600 a month, and
Willi (2,000 tor fire b drains would
make a revenue of $8,000 a year.
Mr. Babbitt asked if it would be
policy for them to give a charter to
otltsldeis if tliey could count on a rev
etiue of 8,000 h year. That would
mean a saiug to tbc towu of about
$10,000 If they owned their own water
Mr. Coruiih replied tbat there were
alwas leaks and incidentals that were
not tigured upon and a good many
contingencies' and risks iu any one
'A discussion' then" arose 'as' to the
merits of wood and iron for piping,
Mr. Babbitt being of opinion" that a
wooden pipe line could bo luado
as solid as iron, while Mr. Grim ob
jected ou account of the probability of
a break. Wood might, however,, be
put together in such a maunor at to
make Unpractically safo. u ,
'MT Corulsli thiiugbt . tbc Counclt
would be Wfectlv iaie'iufflaklu r
proposition to Mr. Burns of $2,000 for
tire plugs. The companywould never
put in any such plant as they pro
posed at Oak creek, and even if they
did they would have the wotstendof
it. The simple business of protecting
the town would be wotth 13.000 a
year. , It would cut tho insurance one
third, and they could have lawns and
grass, and iu time have a pretty nice
Mr. Babbitt said it was a simple
business proposition with them. If it
was possible for them to get tho rev
emio was it not worth considering?
They could tben havo a park aud nice
A GENEROUS OFFER.
Mr. Cornish I will give $500 as a
subsidy towards getting a water works.
Mr. Babbitt Suppose there was a
stock company to bo fntmed here,
would you not take stock to that
Mr. Cornish No; I don't waut any
stock. I will givo $500 to any com
pany or to the town to get in a first
class plant. I think if this towu would
give $5,000 as a subsidy or bonus we
would vet soon have water.
'Mr. Vail I would give ten men for
two months and pay them off myself.
Mr. .Cornish I am going to move
uijt nt this town if they don't gn water
A LOCAL STOCK COMPANY.
Mr. Babbitt asked why they could
no't turn in and form a stock com pan
and get the water works themselves.
He would put down $5,000 for stock.
Mr. Vail said although ho had not
thought about the matter he did not
know but he would take $2,000 in
stock. He asked if the town colild not
be bonded for about $13,000.
Mr. Cornish thought it would be
better to leave the town out of the
matter, as every one who owned a lot
would insist on having something to
ay in the matter, some for wooden
and some for iron, pipes, and the
would never get an thing done. He
thought they could easily raise $30,-
000 among the pecplo of Flagstaff.
After sotno further discission Mr.
Clatk was instructed to draw up a
stock subscription list, and Mr. Cor
nish promised to see what could be
done with it. The matter of sending
a reply to Mr. Burn was deferred
until Fiiday next, when the Council
will hold another meeting at 3 o'clock.

ALL ABOUT FREB SILVER

(from oca bcoular coBatsroMOExr.l
Washington. June 10 The'bnlt-
ing of the St. LiUis convention by
some of the silver republicans attracted
more attention from tho politicians
than anything else done by tho re
publican convention, as everything
else, except who would, be named for
vice-president, was practically known
Jong in advance. The financial plank
adopted and that bolt caused great
rejoicing among tho populists and
silver democrats, who think that it in
dicates the presence of only two' pres
idential tickets in the field the pro
bibs. don't count the St. Louis gold
ticket and the Chicago silver ticket,
and that the people will have a chance
to decide w hicli they prefer. This
view is based upon the supposition
that the Chicago convention will adopt
a fiee silver platform and nominate a
ticket that will bo satisfactory to the
populist and silver conventions which
are to meet at St. Louis next month.
The boom for Senator Teller as the
head of the Chicago ticket is again
being actively pushed by silver men.
The developments of the present
week have made it certain that ono ot
the densest contests ever fought in a
national convention is going to take
place at Chicago when tho na
tional democratic conventiou meets.
That a majority of the delegates will

say that it will have none whatever,
and that a free coinage platform is the
one absolute certainty connected with
the Chicago coiiveutiou.' But others,
some of them ardent silver men, are
not so cei tain about that. 'They regard

to hear what Senator Morgan and
some of his associates have to say
about their part in the bond issues.
Some surprise was caused by the mild
ness of tbc cross-examination of Secre
tary Carlisle by the committee. It
may be that the committee intends to
recall Secretary Carlisle after it re
turns from New York. If not, it is
pretty safe to predict tbat the investi
gation will be like many others which
bavo been conducted by Congressional
committees barren of results.
Notwithstanding tho knock-out of
Controller Bowler by tho Supremo
Court be has an imitator in a small
way. The would-be Bowler is Sixth
Auditor Howard. He doesn't have
any opportunities for ftvo million hold
ups, but he makes the most of the op
portunities he does have in passing
Uxn postal accounts, and is reported
to have made himself to obnoxious to
Postmaster General Wilson that he has
suggested to President Cleveland that
it would be a goml idea to request Mr.
Howard's resignation. Howard is one
of those big-headed officials who think
that the weight of the whole govern
ment is resting upon bis shoulders,
and who thinks it a part of bis duties
to bully his subordinate. If he is
made to resign the government will
probably still continue to do business.
