THE WATER QUESTION.
THE SL1UECT "WILL AGAIN HE WSIICSSED
The water question, which has been
agitated for so long a lime, is airain to
he brougtft before the people for public
debate. The subject which will be dis
cussed Monday evening at the city meet
ing is to decide as to the feasibility of
the city building city waterworks, and
whether a sewer would be laid on the
west side of the river.
At the present time there are 10 com
panies who supply the people of Barre
with water and each company is en
tirely distinct from the other in every
way. The city council ntits last meet
ing talked the matter over briefly, and
the question has arisen, that if the city
wish to have water works of their own,
can they condeni the other companies who
are furnishing the city with water?
These companies, sonic of whom have
been granted charters and given the
riydit to lav their pipes through the
streets of the city. The city has staled
its willingness to purchase these plants,
providing the owners do not set the
due too high. Some ot the companies
have already stated the price at which
they would be willing to sell, but they
are considered exorbitant by some of
the officials. It is hoped a decision will
be reached in the matter. To get some
idea idea as to the views of the public
on the mailer aim sewer quesion ! u
Evening Extkktihse reporter has inter
viewed a number of prominent citizens
on the subject.
e. I.. SMITH.
'I ccrtainlv think it is Ii- that the
city controlled its own waterworks, but
1 io not think we can afford to put in
waterworks if these private com panics
are allowed to supply the people. It
would not be profitable. 1 am in favor
of condemning the water of the Barre
Water company because I think it
would be to the advantage of the city to
do it. If the city docs not propose to
put in waterworks and use the water
from Martin brook, some arrangements
should be made whereby some other
company could supply the people with
this water, as we are in need of belter
city water. 1 believe that as the west
side people Jielped pay for our sewer
they are entitled to one,"
CITY ATTOltNEY SWAZEV.
"I think any municipality of this size
should own its own waterworks. 1 be
lieve it would be a good thing for the
city to secure their own plant. Jf you
cannot purchase these water systems at
a reasonable price they should be con
demned. I am in favor of putting in a
sewer on the west side at once."
MA YOU GORDON.
"I think the city should own its own
works and supply the whole city. It is
a great mistake that the city did not do
this a number of years ago. I am also
in favor of laying a sewer on the west
S. I). A I.I. EN.
"I see no reason why we should not
make a temporary loan until the linauce
of the country is settled and bring the
Martin brookhcre at once and not wait
until our industries m-o shut down f-r
want of water. We ought to have as
'much energy in this respect as the
Barre Water Company. They went to
a orciit expense last fall for one half the
water we have, and did it for a specula
tion anil we do it for our own use. Jf al
lowed the franchise this Company n.sk .
we will py dearly for it in the end
in my judgement. Think what
Mr. Foster, (a man beyond re
proach) says iu our last city report,
well worth looking over. It is iu my
opinion the most important article that
ever came before our city nicctim;. and
should la: considered without delay."

CO. E RECEIVES ORDEI5S TODAY.
cr received orders this
morning to load a carat once with all
the camp equipage of the Company and
send il without delay to Fort Ethan
Allen. There is rather a strange incon
sistency in this move if the Vermont reg
imiMit is to lie. mobilized ut Bratlleboro
as reported. The present indications
lead to the belief that the mobilization
will lake place at Fort Ethan Allen and
that the regiment, will be kept there to
undergo a hard drill practice every day
until sent to sonic other place for active
service. It is not reasonable to suppose
that the government would put iniothe
field for active service recruits who have
had but one week's experience in dri'l,
and men who as yet have never had the
slightest knowledge of military tactics.
It is safe to say that when tne tirst regi
ment is called out il will remain in ser
