soon yesterday, Horshey Welch, city j
water commissioner, said that tho
maintouanco charge of $1.20 a quar
ter was put on when tho prico of
coal began to go up. "Moro than half
tho cost of tho water service is in
the prico of coal," continued Mr.
Welch. J'Tho prico per ton dellvorcd
at tho waterworks station a fow
years ago was $3.75 while tho prico
today Is just twice that amount. As
tho price of coal decreases tho main
tenance tax - can bo decreased." It
is thought that when tho waterworks
extensions arc completed tho addi
tional business will take caro of
somo of tho overhead which cannot
bo handlod whore tho output is re
stricted as it has been in the past.
