'Kid" Hadlock is -in earnest, he says,
about being a water magnate.
E. J., better known as "Kid" Had
lock. Informed the members of the
city council Monday afternoon that a
water plant to meet the needs of a
population of 200,000 persons be erected
in El Paso at a cost of $706,000, and
operated at a cost of $37,000 per year.
According- to plans submitted, he
says that this will constitute M miles
of pipe with 5700 services along the
line, the pressure under ordinary con
ditions to be 85 , pounds and during
conflagrations 150 pounds. The water
will cost less than 20 cents per thou
sand gallon's delivered to the consumer,
Hadlock agrees to construct a pump
ing: plant at a cost of $300,000, cover
cure two engines on 60 days notice
and pump through the mains of tse
International Water company sufficient
water to me,et the temporary aemanu.
The four wells, he says, can be com--pleted
in from 60 to 90 days and he
will then be in a position to erect nls
pumping jalant but will not go to this
expense unless the council assures him
that the water will be used.
Trice for "Water.
While the original price of furnish
ing water will be 10 cents delivered at
the plumping station, this is figured on
a basrs of 4.000,000 perdiem and there
will be a gradual decrease in price on
a sliding- scale governed by the amount
of water used.
Discussing- the matter, he said: "Tm
water under thisland is 95 percent bet
ing: the purchase of land, the construe- ! ter than that in any other city in the
tlon of a reservoir, flumes, low service,
pumps, wells, a boiler plant complete

complete with foundations.
He would furnish the city with wa
ter at not more than 10 cents per thou
sand gallons and the plant may be ac
quired by the city at a fair price at
any time it may elect after the expira
tion of three years.
To Sink Tet Well.
Hadlock says he will commence work
Wednesday on the sinking- of a 300 or
400 foot well in order to demonstrate
that he can secure water of' the Miial
ity desired and the quantity needed by
the city, equal in ever respect and su
perior in some to mesa water, as It is
softer. He did not state where the
well will be sunk, but it is understood
that It will be on his land east of
"Washington park, near the cemetery.
This will be finished in 20 or 30 days.
After this first test well is completed,
he asks that the city council send an
expert to test the water and the
well and decide if it is up to the stanl
ard. Then If the expert decides thac
It Is all that is required, he will sink
four more wells from which to secure
the supply needed. In the event that
the cltyjloes not wish to e,nter into a
contract with him after the four wells
are completed, then he is to be reim
bursed to the extent of $15,000 or SIS,
000. which it will cost to sink thete
He further said that If by any chance
the present plant should become dis
abled and necessity should arise for
tne iurnisning of water, he could se- I
see fit to take over -the whole proposition."
I C. P. Chester, an engineer, stated
that the mains will be two in numbci
and will be of IS Inch pipe, while the
service pipes will be S. 10. 12 and 1C

probably sink the test well, -has the

being- water in all the gravel beds.
Hadlock further said that his present
10 inch well gives appproximately
1,000,000 gallons of water, and when
he pumps from a higher level on which
there is another well close by, the loss
of water in the neighboring- well is
only six inches, there being- practically
no decrease in the amount of water
flowing from the wells under these con
ditions. The members of the city council,
which met as a' committee, the mayor
being absent, notified Hadlock to pre
sent his proposition in writing, to
gether with maps of the proposed
routes of the mains and other data
necessary and it will then be taken up
and decided on.
