Wants to Supply City Water
From Near Cemetery,
Gity to Furnish.
"Kid" Hadlock wants to furnish water
to the citizens of E4 Paso at a rate of
six cents per thousand gallons with a
dally capacity of six million gallons,
the city to furnish the mains into which
he will pump water from wells on his
land just eas of Washington park and
the two cemeteries.
Mayor Rabinson -and the city council
entertained Hadlock for nearly an hour
Monday morning while he discussed his
p-Ians, submitted maps, and declared he
could deliier the goods.
The mavor informed him that ha
would haVe to furnish a' $200,000 bond
before the proposition could be con
sidered and until he does so nothing
will be done.
For some t Se Hadlock has had these
plans and enc -avored to get the ear ot
mayor Sweene- and the council acting
with him but S -eeney would have none
of it, not believi z in the feasibility or
However, the p. sent city council
agreed to give him a hearing and this
was done Monday m rnicg.
This proposition r calls the efforts
of Col. Ritter to secm water from an
artesian well at TV& llngton park,
which was drriled down ver 2000 feet,
costing the city a considerable amount
of money and being finally abandoned
as non-feasible. "Work started inlS95
and continued for nearly a year, the
drills being broken and several diffi
cult problems having presented (them
selves "fn the drilling of the well.
Hadlock's well from which he secures
water for irrigation purposes at the
present time is located several hundred
feet east of the point where the old ar
tesian well was drilled and it is there
lie proposed to erect a plant for the
purpose of supplying the city.
There have been no new developments
in the water proposition, which is still
"waiting an adjustment. Since the ac
tion taken by the city council at Fri
day afternoon's meeting, the Interna
tional "Water company has made no re
ply to the proposition presented to it
except manager Simm,ons's statement to
The Herald that the company had noth
ing more to say
Mayor Robinson stated Monday morn
ing that there had been no new, develop
ments and no action was contemplated
at this time, as the council is waiting
now to see what' will be done by the
Relating to zhc court how he hap-
can be made serviceable and when put
inio service it will reduce the total
pumping cost on the mesa from approx- I
imately 6 cents per 1000 gallons to be- j
tween 3 cents and 4 cents per 1000 1
gallons; and it was for that reason that
the master has Included the shaft well
and its equipment in the valuation of
the properties of the company.
What Kierstcd Said.
Mr. Kiersted (Tr. 422) says: "What I
have stated as the cost of producing
water service 9.7 cents per 1000 gal
lons Is the cost under existing condi
tions; when the new equipment is put
in, that cost will be reduced some," and
"by putting a tunnel, which has been j
proposed nere, out irom tne present
shaft and connecting the weils into th"
tunnel, lifting the water, out of the
ground and into the tunnei and into the
shaft by air lift and then lifting it
out of she shaft by more economical and
more efficient pumping than the air lift
method, then the cost might be re
duced." (Tr. 445).
Believing that economy, but not at
the expense of efficiency, should be ex
ercised bj1 all public utilities, the mas
ter is of the opinion that the amount
recommended for rate making is suffi
ciently large, and should not be In
creased. Josenh D. Savers. Master.

A special shipment of paper for The

morning at 7:30 oclock, was not al

the AVells-Fargo company. Before the

on a waiting express wagon, whichd
began moving just as the paper was

Ty Cobb Figured In Funny Stunt
Against Doves Recently.
Playing with the Augusta (Ga.) team
against the Boston Nationals recently,
Ty Cobb figured in one of the most
remarkable plays recorded in the an
nals of baseball.
Moran of Boston drove a long, low
i flv between center and left field. Colas
of Augusta started for it, and Ty
Cobb started also. The ball hit on
Cobb's outstretched finger tips and
bounded into the air.
Cobb stumbled and nearly fell, but
Coles drove forward and knocked the
ball Into the air with his gloved hand
as It fell again, and Cobb, making an
other reach for the ball, failedTto
clutch it securely. Coles again came
to the rescue with a dive toward the
ground, and he, too, failed to hold the
ball a second time.
Cobb threw himself at full length as
the ball flopped toward the earth
again, and this time caught and held
it with his bare hand three inches
from the ground. The entire perform
ance occupied nearly a full minute.

tlanio is attached to the air pump and
after the necessary high vacuum is od-

directing the flame ot a oiow pipe
against the end of the tube next to tho

The method of producing the vacuum
is also full of interest- It is accom- t
pliashed largely by the use of a mer
cury pump. This consists of a sort of
hour glass -with a very long column be
tween -the two large parts. From this
column extends a tube to which the
electrie light bulb is attached. The
passing of the mercury through this
column gradually exhausts all of the
air from the bulb. In order to. obtain
a higher vacuum than is possible by ,
the aid of mercury, a process of the ,
chemical exhaustion is afterwards em
ployed. Some substance is Introduced
Into the tube which has the power of j
absorbing nearly all of the remaining j
gas in the bulb. ,
The filament of the ordinary electric
'amp is made from a preparation of
absorbent cotton. "When this cocton is
placed in a solution of zinc-chloride it
is dissolved into a sticky jelly like
mass. By forcing this material through
a small hole in a plate and leading the
thread which comes out into a vessel
filled with alcohol it soon sets, or
hardens sufficiently to withstand hand-

dried, when it strongly resembles cat- J

ities in them. To oA'ercome this a system
has been devised whereby the carbon
may be made of uniform thickness af

All Bulbs Tested.
After the lamp is completed it is test
ed by the operators standing near an
Induction coil. The current passing
through "he body causes a faint glow
in the filament. To test the voltage re

connects the bulbs with a charged -wire
and the light from it shines upon a
screen through a small hole- If exactly
bright enough a star shaped spot on
the screen can be plainly seen. If this
Is not seen the bulb is rejected.

the tungsten is the best. One firm
