' Company for permission to discontinue supplying unfil
tered water in Yuma. Kindly acknowledge receipt.
SAM W. PROCTOR, Secretary.
The idea that the present owners of the local utility
companies should be granted the right to issue stock will
strike the average citizen as a most amusing proposition,
and yet that the request will be granted there is little room
to doubt. Just how much "watered stock" thiy will be per
mitted to put on the market remains to be seen. That it will
be enough, none will doubt.
But the idea that the corporation commission will per
mit the highbinders to discontinue the muddy water system
and give the water company the right to charge the same
outrageous price for irrigating water that is now charged
for domestic water is unthinkable. The people simply won't
stand it.. This city needs irrigating water at a reasonable
price; it needs lots of water
without this abundance of
soon look like a desert, for there are not a dozen families in
the entire city who can afford to pay for irrigating water the
same rates now charged for drinking water. It will do the
sommissioners a whole lot of good if they will talk to some
of our ordinary citizens, the people who pay the taxes. If
they will hear them they will tell the highbinders to go to.
And unless I miss my guess the corpof ation commission
will think several times before they throttle Yuma. Make
the highbinders toe the mark. That's all we ask. We ex
pect nothing less.
