Refe Tiog to the communicMion signed
by "B." mppeariDg in the Union of Tues
day and asserting that the destruction of
School Building No 6 by Are, was caused
by the inefficiency of the superintendent
of waterworks, on account of pumps
being out of repair and hydrants ne
glected, which accounts for the city buy
ing a new pump, bupt. of Waterworks
Murrin, who was accosted by an An a us
representative on the surject this morn
ing, saii: "The fact that tbe city is going
to purchase a new pump, don't go to
show tliat the works have been permitted
to run down. Where ycu haye a direct
pressure system at we have here, without
reeervo r or stand pipe to insure safety,
the mat binery should be duplicated so
that if one set breaks down you can run
tbe oth.-r set, which we cannot now do,
s thee Id gangs and rotary pumps were
ODly 2,000.000 gallons capacity per day
when new, and have not capacity enough
now for domestic consumption, let alone
"The quadruplex pumping engine had
been in service nine years last Apr 1, and
is doinp as good service as ever and has
never leen found wanting yet when
called upon. I invite examination and 1
guarantee it will stand inspection. At
tbe timo of the" flre at School No. 6 tie
guage cn tbe engine showed 105 pounds
water pressure and held it for over an
hour until the 13-inch water main bursted.
Before. -he main broke tbe engine was
pumping at tbe rate of 2.300.000 gallons
per day, and after the breakage we were
pumping at the rate of over 6 000,000
gallons to maintain the 45 pounds water
" 'B' suggests that if the mains are not
strong nough to stand the pressure of
tbe present works they will not stand a
pump of greater capacity. The capac
ity of tl e pump has nothing to do with
the watir pressure whatever. If we don't
have to pump over the guaranteed capac
ity of tl e quadrup'e engine we can get
150 pounds water pressure or more if de
sired . About testing water m tins and
hydrants the water pipes sre all sub
jected to a hydraulic test of 890 pounds
to the 8(juare inch before they leave the
foundry, and I see by the report of Eupt.
Cramer, when the new pumps were tested
io August, 1882, they bad 155 pounds
water pressure. After they are tested
once they are supposed to be all right, arjd
there is no more sense in testing them
after to see if they will blow up
.there is in testing a steam boiler
month t) see if it will blow up.
"About tbe hydrants I think the firemen
will bear me out in the assertion, that
since I t3ok charge of the works in Feb.,
1SS9. they never went to a hydrant that
was not in working order, and I have
beard few if any complaints of not hav
ing enocgh pressure, I know where the
trouble is, and so does tbe council. Mis
takes mude in the past should not be
charged to me, and the council is trying
to rectify tbem as fast as possible. Our
water miins are alogetber too small for
fire pure oses, especially near tbe out
skirts of the city. Tbe farther you get
away frt m tbe pumping station and the
smaller the mains, the more friction jou
have to overcome.
"At School No. 6 tbey had a doubleby
drant of a 4-inch main, and bad two
streams from it. Eich strei.ni went
through over 900 feet of hose. Tbe
olber stream was from a single hydrant,
with ovtr 1,000 feet of hose; so, taking
two streams of a 4-inch main at a
dead end through such a long section nf
hose, it was almost impossible to get
much pressure. As to 'BV remark
about tho steam cylinder and gusges at
the works, if he can give us any pointers
tbey,wil be thankfully received. Mr.
Holy, tbe man who designed and super
intended the construction of tbe pump,
was Ht tl e works three weeks ago, and
was well pleased and ' fell proud that it
was worked so well-"

Miesiw ippi steamboatmen will te in
terested in knowing that William Snee,
a Pittsburg inventor, proposes to revive
the river traffic with a new style of steam
boat to be propelled by three wheels,
making 35 miles an hour and carrying
1,000 pusengers and 10.000 tons of
freight, and to be operated by a stock
company with a capital of 500,000. to
be knowt as tbe Pittsburg, Cincinnati &
New Or cans Packet company. Mr.
Snee, in Ids dream, pictures a steamboat
of hitherto unknown magnificence on tbe
Mississippi and Ohio rivers, propelled by
a stern and two side wheels, each 40 feel
high and an aggregate bucket length of
60 feet- The wheels are to be operated
by one set of cylinders, with pistons pass
ing through both ends of each cylinder,
the fore istons being connected with the
side wheils and tbe aft pistons with the
stern wh'i el, so that ah move simultan
eously. There sre to be eight boilers,
24 feet Iv- 42 inches, and the cylinders 86
inches in diameter with 10 feet stroke.

There has been some inquiry as to
whether the Rocjk Island road proposed
to lay a sidewalk along its yards on the
north side of Moline avenue between the
depot and Brooks' crossing, and the re
port has come to the ears of The Argus
that tbe city had agreed to ' release the
road from tbe obligation to put down the
walk on condition of it erecting an 8
foot brick wall along the entire length.
Mayor McConochie was seen on tbe sub
ject this morning and slated that tbe city
had no other thought than that the rail
road company would comply with the
city ordinances in the matter, and it was
also expected that the wall would be
erected. The Arcus can see lo reason
why tbe railroad should not be required
lo comply with tbe ordinances relative to
sidewalks, the same as other hropeity
holders, and the wall is as much needed
as the walk.

Kay be followed by a morning of "La Grippe. "
Easily, and why? Because the displacement of
coreiiaa in bed, a neglected draught from a partly
c!o-ed window, an open transom connected with
a windy entry in a hotol, may convey to your 'nos
trils and lunas the death-dealing blait. Terrible
and swift are the inroads made by this new des
troyer. The maolcated al.ohollc principle in
Hositettcr's etoroacb Bitters will check the dire
complaint. A persistence in this preventive or its
further development will abeolntely checkmate
the dangerous malady. Cnmedicated alcoholic
stimulants are of little or no value. The Jmt me
dium Is the Bitters . No less efficicions is it in cases
of malaria, biliousness, constipation, rheumatism,
djspepsla and kidney trouble. The weak are
nsualiv those upon who a disease fastens first.

he was asking for a large section of the
building; "but every inch will be put to
good purpose, he added. 'I shall not
