QIiESTM WATER
Councilman (Jood Submitted
Figures As To Cost.
City Tax liovy For the Year Placed
at Twelve Millg On
I lie Dollar.
The matter of a new and purer water
sapplv for Colfax haH peen a most vexa
Houh problem to the city council for
several month*. At a discussion of the
mbject Monday evening Councilman
(i i, who, with two other members
has all along been favorable to the
proposition made by Jacob Arrasmith
submitted some figures which he con
tends show that on a basis of ten years'
time wi I save to the city nearly $,'{o
into il the Arrasmith proposition is ac
cepted. This proposition is that Mr
Arriismith will sink an artesian well on
hi* farm east of town, and if he furnishes
150,000 gallons of water each 24 hours
the city is to pay him $5000 for the
well: otherwise, the city is to be out
nothing.
To pipe Huh water to the reservoir hv
gravity BjStea, on v full of 2M2 feet it h
estimated will cost $1(5,ooo to #18,000
but for piirpoHi-H of illustratiou' Mr'
Good lined $20,000 as the I'ost. He
figured that the coHt of the proposed
well on the Hat noar the pump houHe
which Home of the cotinciltnen fuvor!
would coat ijfHOOO, and the raising of
watt i from thin to the nwrvoir vwuld
hiI.I ul least $800 yearly expense to the
operation of the pumping plant; that
tbie, in connection with the present
n\B!< in. will cowt in ten years at iea-tt
138,500 for operating expenses, i^elud
in^ in w machinery which it will beneces
wry t«> bay before the expiration of tlmt
time. To be added to thin in $22,800
interest for ten yean, making a total
cont for the time of #GI,.'JOO.
Under the Arrasmith proposal, if
water in found, he tigiiren that the coat
of tin' well on the Hat, ijfHOOO, operating
expenses <>f $18,000, a new pump at
|5000, and |500 additional would be
Bared, making $31,000 in all, aud that
$29,300 would be saved in ten years by
the gravity system, besides securing
pure water.
The net earnings of the water system
are now about $.1000 a year, says Mr.
Good. Warrants for the $5000 for pur
chase of the well, if sufficient water is
obtained, could be drawn against this
fund, and all the warrants retired with
in two years, without additional tax
levies, lie also thought the water
revenue* would easily be swelled $100 a
month, or $12,000 for the ten years, be
came of the pure supply. He was of the
opinion, however, that 150,000 gallons
daily might not be sulllcieut during one
or two i.f the hottest summer months,
Mr. Arriismith reports that he has re
cently had an expert inspect his ground.
whose opinion is that such a supply can
easily be obtained.
Another point made by Mr. Good was
thai the long pipe line would add from
■sil.(too to loo,0(j0 gallons to the stor
age capacity without additional reser
voir construction. No definite action
has yet been taken.
City Tax Levy.
City ( lerk McCord has certified the
followiag to the auditor as the tax
levnd by the council upon each dollar's
worth of city property, a total of 12
mills-

Judge DeMattos of Wbatcom Holds
Him I |) to the liight.
Whatcom, Sept. 10 —Hon. J. P. De
Mattos, now of Republic*, but for six
teen years a resident of this city, and
four terms its mayor, is calling on his
friends here ana as he nnively puts it,
"recovering from the depressing scenes
ol Ihe late fusion state convention.'"
The judge speaks with authority as well
hs with tlie keen-edged sarcasm for
which he is famous, for he was a very
prumineut character at the late conven
tion at Seattle, coming there with the
prestige of a man who had been a silver
republican repn sensitive in the fusion
legislature of L 897; chairman of the
stale silver republican convention in
ls'.>-\ and a state delegate to the silver
republican national convention at Kan
sas City in July.
In the fusion legislature he was a
staunch supporter of Go». Rogers, vot
ii'i: fur him sixteen times for United
States senator, something he would
hardly do now. if the scathing remarks
regarding the course of tne governor
(uiil some of his associates are a fair in
dex of his feelings towards them.
Will Support Senator Frink.
Judge De Mattos, being asked by a
reporter of th» Post-Intelligencer as to
the correctness of the statement that he
would support the republican state
ticket, said:
'Yes, 1 shall certainly support Senator
Frink and his associates, for several rea
sons, which appear to me controlling.
First. Frmk and Rogers hold the same
views on what the democratic national
convention declares to be the 'para
mount issue,' Rogers having for months,
with his own tongne and pen, assisted
by the chief of his traveling press bureau,
lUzzard, sought to educate the people
that Bryan, his chief, was mistaken.
"If Bryan is right Rogers is wrong,
and vice versa. I prefer the gentleman,
Frink, to the scribbler, Rogers, who in
his notorious effusion, 'The Irrepressible
Conflict,' which I have just seen for the
first time, and which the principal busi
ness of the democratic committee of '96
was to withdraw as far as possible from

When State Auditor Cfaeatfaam, who
could not get 20 per cent of the votes of
the late Hfate convention, and to whom
at leant 99 per cent of the credit for thin
if- v ttdmin "Bt.ration is due, and for
which Rogers is trying to take personal
credit refuHed to audit a bill of Rogers'
for dollar meals for himself, wife and
uaughter, while traveling to Kllensbnrg
on a normal school violation, the gov
ernor was ordering warrants issued for
$4,000 to a political trail builder of
Seattle and his contractor, to whom
Rogers turned over the Marcus Btate
road appropriation, despite the warning
r> a meml)erof liiH <>wn staff resident in
Republic, and to the insult of the people
of W-rry and Stevens counties, and on
which it is said by people who have in
vestigated it that only from #r,OO to
#2,<><)() work was done, which was thus
useless.
"Fifth -There is not an officer in the
executive branch of the state govern
ment whose relations with the governor
are not strained by his imperious and
boorish manners.
"Sixth—Hie veto of the first and his
nonapproval of the second Whatcom
normal school bills, and his refusal to
have Whatcom's national guard com
pany enrolled in the regiment, do not
diminish the dislike he has striven his
best to earn at the bands of the people
of the fourth city of the state but arc in
line with his weil known policy as an in
grate to those who discovered and ele
vated him.
How Delegates were Changed
"Finally, at the state convention, men
who were selected delegates because of
their hostility to the governor, with
scant pocketbooks in the morning had
money to spend the same evening, and
were shouting themselves hoarse for
Rogers, while gentlemen sustaining the
apparent relation of pardon and parole
brokers to his excellency were leaving
notes at hotels for certain delegates to
come up to a certain room where 'that
matter would be fixed.' Is thiH not
enough?'"
"The trenchant criticisms of Judge De
Mattos are doubly pointed, as they are
a climax to a general dissatisfaction in
this county among till the fasiooists, ex
cept a certain few, and especially among
the populists, who are fast learning that
they were hoodooed, and who was re
sponsible for the elimination of their
party and its name in state politics.
Judging from the statements of other
fusionists of prominence heretofore there
will be a defection from that party of
hundreds of votes in this county, most
of whom like Judge De Mattos, will vote
the republican ticket.
