SMALL COST FACTS AND FIOURRS TO
It will not bo disputed that no want of
ourclly Is moro Vocniy folt tho insuffi
ciency of tho supply of water for public
purposes. It Is truo that wo havo toveral
brick cisterns In different parts of tho city,
none or wk nii . . . "
irr ' " WOTOr "vo been in a
condition to hold water until quite recent-
v D amogemer inadequate, even in
peneci state. It Is a f3t, wth
wuicneyory citUen Is acquainted thu
fit ratratv n..n. .lll . . .
- - 7J irmuii uos not involve
u. uenruction or mora or lets of the ad"
Jacont property in the" efforts the fir com
pames are compelled to make
to procure water. Fences are
wrn mown; gardem are ruined; cisterns
pimped dry aid rendored unfit for future
us, Unlet at an outlay verging on the
original cost, bldst damage suiUlncd in
various othor ways. Of court, the cltlten
whote property is thus dettroyed hat his
remedy against tho city, and could, with
out uoubt, recover in tho oourts. But it
would. look like an act of ineffable moan
nest for a citlren to deny tho uto of bis cis
tern to'savo bis ntlghbor' proporty, and
nothing is loft to him under the circum
stances except to grin and bear It. Just
now soveral clticons are engaged in sink
ing drlvo wells, at their privalo oxpense,
for the use of farmers visiting our oity,
and for teamsters and others. The coun
cil is, wo understand, thortly to be potl-
Honed to link a half down or dozon of
thete wellt In different parts of th.
city, for tno uio of the public. It will
readily be seen that theso wolls will only
upply a minor want, while tho great want
of a good upply of water in the emor
goncy of fires or drouths, will still exist u
great u ever.
Now, It will bo admitted without contro
versy, that, If a plan were suggestod by
which a constant supply of water could be
furnished at littlo cost for the use of the
fir companies, tcarattert and cltitent. It
should bo adopted without delay by
the couacil. Wo believe the follow,
log to be such a plan, and respectfully sub
mit to the consideration of the public :
Build a wooden cittern, pitched and
caulked, eight feet square, at the junction
of each of the even itreeti with Commer
cial avenue, and at the junction of each of
the odd streets with Washington avenue,
from Vourtb to Twentieth street sixteen
cisterns in all. Connect these clsternt
1th wooden or tilo-pip, and the first cit
tern at the upper end of Commercial av-
ease with a tank in the fourth ward pump
house. Then put the pump in working
order and supply the tank from the river.
Water seeks its lovol, and, as a matter of
course, by tho time the first cittern it full
all will be.full. Then, in the event of a
flro, before tho supply of water give out
all the water in all the cittorni must be
used, since into the cistern being pumped
from a four Inch stream of water will pour
from each side from tbo citterns above and
cisterns below. Tbeso cisterns would fur
nith at all our street crossings a watering
Ior- tMimtnrt and for itQfJt.
both tides of tho avonuo might be allowed
to tap the cittorni or pipot, and thus sup
ply, at a cost of my fifty cents a month, to
bo paid into tho city treasury, their wash
houses and kitchens with a novor-faillng
supply of water.
The cost of tho construction of those will
be comparatively trifling, and, if the plan
is, upon thorough investigatian, found to
be what is claimed for it, there is no doubt
but insurance companies and private citi
zens will contribute to it liberally. Each
cistern will require about 1,000 feet of lum
ber, scantlings included. There aro six

if found feasible to urgo its adoption upon
the council. We shall refer to tho matter
in a future Issue.
