A Joint meeting of tho flro companica of

Mr. John II. Oberly wa called to tho
chair, Mr. T. J. Korlh nppolntcd secre
tary, nnd Mr. Win. Mcllalo, vlco-prcsl-dent.
Tlio president stated tho object of tho
meeting to be tho duvlsing of nys nnd
means to obtain 11 supply of water for tho
usu of the tiro engines of tho city. Ho
said that two ways to obtain this object
had been suggested, namely, the establish
ment of regular water-works, which was
111(1 most dcsirablo if within thu reach of
tho p6cunlary ability of tho city, nnd a
system of cisterns, connected with each
other by plpei, nnd to bo filled from tho
river. Ho stated that ho nnd Mr. F.
Bross, who had been appointed by tho
presidents of tho three companies to ob
tain plans and estimates of both theso
plans, had performed that duty ; and ho
proceeded to read tho following cttiinato
for n reservoir, with lire plugs, etc.:
Cairo, September 11, UT1.
M ESSltf. BllOSS AN1 OlIEKLY :
In compliance with your request for an
approximate ostimato lor regular water
works with resorvoir nnd pipes through
all tho principal strcots, and with propor
connections lor all private and public de
mands, I tako tho liberty to say:
"Waterworks for tho supply of tho prcs
ontnnd futuro incroaso of th'e population
to the extent of C0,000 inhabitants, will re
quire n reservoir to bo located on or near
tho upper part of Ohio lovoc, or, bettor, on
tho Mississippi levee, within closo proxim
ity to tho channel of.tho river. Tho
closest observation of tho engineers of such
public enterprises demonstrates that an
uvorago of fifteen gallons of water Is con
sumed by each inhabitant; tho reservoir
would thercforo need n capacity of one
million United States gnllons, or cubic
contents of 133,700 cubic feet. This reser
voir would require an area of 1 2-10 acres,
filled and walled up to "0 feet above tho
present grade of tho levee, to givo tutli
cient pressure for supplying tho whole pop
ulation to tho second story in all houses
insido tho lovce, and to tho first story in
all house along tho lovce. The relative
cost of such waterworks by an approxi
mate estimate would be, to wit:
