RAISES PUMP FEUD
Another Fight Brewing in the City
Council Over Machinery.
SEXTON STARTS SOMETHING
Committee Will Investigate Needs and
Report to the Council Will Prob

Committee Appointed Last Evening to
Arrange for Excursion Prob
Another "pump" storm is brewing ki
the city council. It started last even
ing. Aid. Sexton, of the waterworks
committee, called attention to the con
dition of affairs at the waterworks and
introduced a resolution, which was
passed, providing for the appointment
of three members to act with the wa
terworks committee in the investiga
tion of the conditions at the plant and
at the reservoir station.
thlajc t Fljtht A boat.
There was really nothing to fight
about last evening, as all were agreed
that there should be an investigation
and it seemed to be the opinion of most
of the aldermen who have investigated
that there ought to be additional serv
ice placed in the waterworks. But the
mention of a pump seems to be similar
to one boy knocking a chip from an
other's shoulder it means fight, wheth
or there is anything to fight about or
The immediate cause of the investi
gation is in the fact that the large
pump again broke down yesterday
morning and was kept out of service
alAday and most of two nights. The
smaller pump, which is kept as a re
serve force, has been doing the work
and with the water already at the res
ervoir, no trouble was experienced, but
in case of fire the city would be in bad
Sm of Year A no.
As the question came up, it brought
back the scenes of a little over a year
ago, when the pump question was
fought out in the council. Chairman
Robbins with the waterworks commit
tee having recommended the purchase
of a new pump, and a majority of the
council finally voting the proposition
down and deciding to repair the old
one. The old one was repaired and
has been in the service since. that
time, but the five million gallon pump
has been bearing the long end of the
service, being kept going at all times,
unless some imperfection put it out of
commission. The pump is in good
shape, although it has been running
for about ten years, but it is consider
ed necessary to have more reserve
power than the smaller pump supplies
On that committee Mayor McCaskrln
appointed Aids. Robbins. Anderson and
Dauber. The waterworks committee
consists of Aids. Sexton, Wilson and
Eckhart. This committee will investi
pate the condition, securing such infor
mation as is needed from the superin
tendent or calling in other experts, as
they sometimes do under such condi
tions, and make a report back to the
council, when the question of purchase
will be taken up if it is decided that
one is needed.

A short meeting of the Retail Mer
chants association was held last even
ing. The meeting was devoted largely
to a discussion of the annual outing
and excursion. Peoria seemed to be
favored by the members, and the mem
bers authorized a committee compose I
of E. B. McKown. F. T. Myers, and T
F. LaVelle to plan for the excursion
The committee was not instructed to
make arrangements to Peoria, but as
that city is favored, it is probable that
the excursion will be to that place.

William Jackson Head of Park Board
Take Up Longview
The board of park commissioners re
cently appointed by Mayor McCaskrin
under the new ordinance met last ev
ening at the office of William Jackson
and organized by electing the follow
President William Jackson.
Secretary E. B. McKown.
Treasurer Otto Huber.
A meeting. will be held at Lougview
park tomorrow afternoon to look into
the needs of that pretty tract. The
members desire to familiarize them
selves with the plans for the improve
ment of Longview and the work that
is necessary to execute them, so that
if the city council appropriates funds
for the purpose, no time need be lost
in proceeding with operations. It is
hoped that Longview will be liberally
remembered when the funds are ap
portioned for next year.
While they have not agreed to any
recommendation as to the amount de
sired, members of the park board think
Longview should have $5,ootj this year.
Two years ago, it will be remembered,
the council's appropriation was not
used because it was impossible to get
bidders for the job of grading the
driveways and walks, and the sum set
aside was returned to the city's gen
eral fund. Last year, very little was
used, and it is argued that the park
now ought to have a credit with the
other municipal departments of two
or three thousand dollars.

Recreation, as a usual thing, is a misnomer you get "all fagged

In Colorado it's different.
There's a spirit of rollicking sport in the air you breathe it takes
possession of you and yet this very ."ginger" strengthens and invig
orates. It tones you up.
One reason is the high, dry air evaporates the moisture of the
body keeps the skin pores clear. And then you're continually bath
