MR. STILLMAN'S REPLY.
ARGUMENTS AGAINST EAST SIDE WELLS. Say» That a Proper Investigation Cannot be Had for Lack of Money. The following communication from Howard Stillman, one of the Citizens' Water Committee, presents some inter esting points and is given respectful consideration by the "Record-Union." Eds. "Record-Union": Your issue of August 4th contains rather a warm edi torial on myself as one of the Water Committee "sitting in judgment," and I would ask the benefit of your columns for a few words. I think your under standing of the statement made by me in the recent committee meeting is en tirely unfair, inasmuch as you attribute partiality not only to myself but ta other members of the committee. I have several times alluded in out committee meetings to the geological formation, of this portion of the valley as not sustaining the theory of exist, ence of positive underground streams or currents flowing in this vicinity. My only reason for referring to the matter has been in view of the dog matic assertions we have been hearing for some years concerning the subter ranean streams and unfailing sources of supply in question. These supplies, as far as we can learn, have never been tested at the rate of supply demanded by a growing city like Sacramento. The least con stant rate of supply demanded is 7,000. --000 gallons in twenty-four hours. This is at the rate of almost 30(1,000 gallons per hour. Now as "an old rancher," da you know of any one who has drawn from a well or system of wells east of the city at this rate and kept it up night and day during a dry season? If you do you will confer a lasting favor on the Citizens' Water Committee by leading us to such a source of in formation. You must admit that In order to supply the city at a given rate the wells must be restocked with water (not including mountain trout.) As a committee we have no money available, at present, to place and oper ate such a test plant, and for lack of financial means must rely somewhat on horse sense. Dogmatic assertions we cannot rely on, and I maintain that the only reliable quantitative test of th>» wells east of this city is to draw trom them with a system of pumps at the rate of 300,000 gallons per hour, keep, ing it up night and day for at least a week during the dry season; the wate> to be discharged at least 500 feet from the nearest well. Concerning the geological formation of this portion of the valley, let me briefly refer. Geologists tell us that its formation is sedimentary for a depth of about 2.000 feet. As such it is built up of alluvial sediment, sand, gravel, old river beds and deposits of ages from the washing down of the 'high Sierra into the basin of the Sacramento dur ing comparatively recent epochs in geo. logic history. The inland sea became in time the valley raised above sea level in this way, as we now know it. At the pres. en time we are, at the level of X street, but 24% feet above sea level. Let us go up at the bank of the American at, say, to the Earl ranch where we find our selves about MM feet above sea leved. Look down into a well in the vfcinity: it is about 30 feet to surface of the water. This means practically that the water level in wells east of the city is at or near- sea level. Where then can these underground streams be flowins, against the law of gravitation and where are they going against their own head. If we were not so close to sea level matters might be different. I have never doubted the presence of a large body or bodies of water filtering into the ancient river gravels east of thej city, and of its quality I have noth ing at present to say. How much there is in a dry'season I do not know. One thing I do know is that moun tain trout do not percolate through river gravel and that water does not persist in flowing against its own head. The sedimentary formation of this valley would naturally fill up any uu< derground channels or water conducts with its own substance. In limestone regions subterranean channels do exist that may convey streams of water, but here again water will not flow against its own head. That no limestone form ations exist continguous to this city I would refer you to the State Geologist or Professor Joseph Le Conte of the chair of geology at the University of Cali fornia, who was an honored instructor during my college days. Now I am not an enemy of trie east side source, neither do I believe any of the committee are. We want fair, impartial consideration of all local con ditions relating to the different water propositions. Proof as to quantity under all cir cumstances is an all-Important consid eration, and if you have any prnoTs trot them out for our benefit. Do not sit and throw fish stories at us. Your inference as to the committee being "packed" in any way I believe to be unfair and in opposition to the desire expressed by us at our first meeting, that the press be with us in their support. HOWARD STILLMAN. Sacramento. August ">th. Mr. Stillman says his reason for sating what he did relative to the east side source of water supply Is that for years we have been hearing so much of this source, which has never been tested as to capacity to supply You'll find in our store every thing needed for PRESERVING FRUIT. Mason's Pint, Quart and 2 Quart Jars. Easy Vacuum Pint and Quart Jars. JELLY GLASSES. Preserving Kettles of all sizes and at best prices. Also all Fruits of the season. Sugar and Spices. American Gash Store, Cor. Eighth and X Sts. a city needing so much water daily as does this. The very fact that we have "heard so much" of it instead of being an ob jection is an argument in favor of in vestigation. The Committeeman thinks that at the lowest we will need a ca pacity of 7,000,000 gallons each twen ty-four hours. Conceded. We have cited him to ofie driven well that pro duced nearly a million gallons daily wlthout appreciable lowering — what, then, would a sufficient number of wells produce? How many such wells would it take? This use of east side water has been going on for forty years and more, and during the dryest of dry seasons. There are on the east side between this city and Florin probably 150 deep driven wells which have never failed in the dryest season, and have . had no appreciable effect upon the moisture in the surface, except to augment it by irrigation. No, we do not know of a system of wells sufficiently near together from which to pump an ample supply for this city, but we have moral and physical reason for believing that were such a system put in there would be an ample supply. As the cost of sink ing such a system is not great, the people ask that it be driven and tested. The pumping machinery will not be worth less for the city's use after than before the test, and as the city is about to purchase a new pump the idea is thrown out that it might just as well be first employed in making the test. Thus the cost of demonstra tion will be the sinking of the wells and the setting up and possible re moval of the pumps and boilers. Mr. Stillman must not take his crit ics to be fools, as is implied by his suggestion that we must admit that the wells must be "restocked" with water when in use. We apprehend that the restocking will be taken care of by nature, much as is done with the American and Sacramento Rivers. The committeeman puts up the plea that his committee has no means available to place and operate a test plant; therefore, it must proceed upon "horse sense" to reach conclusions. If this is the milk in the cocoanut, then we have reached the bottom of the debate, namely, because the Trustees will not supply the means to make a proper investigation; then we must abandon inquiry, p-actically, concern ing a known supply, and trust to the theorizing of doubters and objectors. According to that logic, the Trustees can control the whole business and force adoption of any plan they choose by refusing to permit Investigation to be made in any direction they dislike. The correspondent says that the geo logical formation of the valley in this vicinity is sedimentary to a depth of 2,000 feet, with sand, gravel, old river beds and the deposits of ages from the washing of the Sierra flanks down into the basin. Taking the sea level represented in this valley and exam ination of a certain well, and he finds the water level in wells up the Ameri can to be about thirty feet below the surface, from which he deduces that the water level of wells on the east side is the sea level. Hence, it is argued, underground streams if existing would be flowing against the law of gravitation. But so far as all that is concerned the answer is that the water is there, is there in large quantity; that it has not failed; that it supplies the people of a large area for domestic and irrigation uses;; that whatever may be the theories as to sources and the laws of gravitation, it is sufficient to know that the water is there, and that its quantity should be ascertained by a working test, and that whatever the cost of that test it is sound economy to make it. We are gratified that Mr. Stillman so far yields to the law of evidence as to admit that mountain trout do not percolate through river gravel any more than that water will flow against its head. But it must not be assumed that Mr. Stillman or any one else has discovered the head of the east side supply. There are those who have had the benefit of wide observation who fancy that there is much reason for the belief that the head of the east side source is some thousands of feet altitude in the upper Sierras, and that the uncontaminated mountain tops, which gather and retain the snows, and receive the annual rainfall, wheth er it reaches the valley or not. feed the living waters beneath the valley. Cer tain it is that more than one stream of water in the mountains does mys teriously disappear and sink into the mountain side and still flow on for ever. Mr. Stillman disclaims enmity to the east side source both for himself and the other members of the committee, and insists that all they want is fair and impartial consideration of all local conditions relating to the different water proposition, but they want no fish stories thrown at them. Fair and impartial examination is what the "Record-Union." reflecting the desire of the people, has asked and demands. When a fish story estab lishes a fact, and suggests a reason for it, it is as good as any other, and it ill befits a juror to denominate such testimony as absurd. This we do know, that the office of an investigator is neither to oppose nor to advocate, but to ascertain the facts, and when the testimony is in form his judgment. In the case of some of the committee the reverse has been the process. It is so in the case of Mr. Stillman. He has a theory. With him it is convincing, and he plants his back against it. and says to all the world "trot out*' your proofs that I am wrong. It is worthy of note in this connec tion that the directorate of the Cham ber of Commerce has fallen into the error of asking the Water Investi gating Committee to divide on all propositions before it. some to oppose all plans submitted, some to approve all, that in the attrition of debate the truth may be born, and this, say the astute directorate, must not be taken as evidencing preconceived judgment. The idea is unworthy a body of the dignity of the chamber. It knows, or should know, that true investigation is never conducted wisely upon any such lines. The whole body of the investi gators should seek the truth, explore all facts, and in that search, where it has not sufficient light, demand it, and if it is refused by the proper au thorities, it should make that fact known to the people. It should not divide Into fictional factions to conduct its research along the lines of a cross-roads school de bating society. It is not counsel for the prosecution or the defense; rather the Judge upon the bench, with mind receptive to the truth, and with judg ment rigidly reserved, until the time for summing up the case and pro nouncing judgment arrives.

PHOENIXES DOWN ATHLETICS LIVELY BATTLE BETWEEN THE LOCAL TEAMS. Proposition Made by tke Latter to Form a Local Amateur League. Over a half thousand persons saw the Sacramento Athletic Club's baseball nine go down before the Phoenix heavyweights at the Oak Park diamond yesterday afternoon. And the game was for blood. Each team believed in its ability to defeat the other, and so believing entered into an agreement whereby the winner was to take all the gate receipts and the loser all the consolation to be derived from telling what might have been. Then, too, each team hung up $25 for the winner to pull down, and because they were mutilated and scalped in the most approved style, there is mourn ing in the camp of the Athletes. Six to four was what the Phoenix did to the Athletes, and because they did it their pockets are bulging and they see the world through painted glass and place choice laurel upon the brow of the Goddess Fortune. The game was a good one. Not so good as some put up by the hired stran gers who represent this city in the Pa cific Coast League, and a great deal better than some. It was a game play ed by local amateur talent, and de served more patronage than it got. In the first inning, Waterman, the big first baseman of the Phoenix team, was injured and retired in favor of Ruser, and therein fortune befriended the Phoenix. Ruser is a stem-winder, and gobbled up all kinds of grounders and skyscrapers without apparent ef fort. The work of Ruser at first and Ridley at second were easily the feat ures of the game. Ridley is improving and he plays ball all the time. He backs up everybody, from the catcher to the left fielder, and in all of his chances picked up only one error, which was on a hard chance. Fitzgerald is a good one in the box, and while he was a bit nervous at criti cal times, managed to keep his head and held the hard-hitting Athletics down to six hits. Shields, too, pitched good ball, and a majority of the ten hits made off his delivery, at least half, were on the scratch order. Treichler at short had an off day, and while he made some fanciful stops, picked up three errors, all of which were costly. But Fissell, the Red Bluffs boy who watched the short station for the Phoenix, had his share of misery. He too had three errors chalked up to him at the close of the proceedings, but they were not costly. George New bert was wild in throwing to first, and was responsible for a number of Phoe nix men anchoring at first. The Athletics' infield, with the excep tion of Will Newbert, was listless. They lacked ginger and too often for got what to do with the ball when they got it. It gave a poor exhibition of team work and seemed to be without a captain. Its players bumped into one another on several occasions and the snap and go usually shown by them was conspicuous by its absence. On the other hand, the Phoenix boys had an eye on the gate receipts and the side bet from start to finish. They never lost sight of the bag of ducats. They were in the game all the time, and an error meant a quick retrieve. There is only one thing to be said concerning them, and that is that they outplayed the Athletes. The Phoenix boys began to play the game early. In the second, Ruser and H. Theilen each slashed safe hits into the outfield, ahd scored on Butler's long fly-out to Hannon. Again in the fourth, Theilen banged a safe hit into right field and pur loined the second cushion a moment later. Butler hit down to George New - bert and was safe, Theilen on third. Lagomarsino succumbed to Shields' curves and shoots. Butler stole sec ond and went to third on Treich ler's fumble of Fitzgerald's drive, and Theilen scored. Ridley flew to Wiseman, who promptly muffed it, and the bases were full. Fissell drop ped a safe one into the center garden, and Butler and Fitzgerald crossed the plate, while Ridley was getting pinched between second and third. The Athletes took three of their four runs in the fourth. Pope sent one to Butler and was safe on the fumble, took second on Treichler's safe drive to center field, and third on Payen's grounder to second, where Treichler was pinched, and scored on Cowden's wild throw to shut him out at third. Wiseman struck three times and out; Mott was hit and walked, and Han non hit safe to center field, scoring Payen and Mott. The Phoenix took their last tally in the eighth, and the Athletes wound up with one in the ninth. The Athletics are undaunted. They suggest that a series of games be ar ranged, to take in the Athletics, Phoe nix, Masons and Folsom teams, and that each aggregation hang up .SSO. the winner of the series to take all.

That was the result of the game at Ryan's ball grounds at Fourteenth and R yester day morning. The game was full of THE LATEST YARN. A Pittsburg drummer tells this new yarn: I always carry a bottle of Kemp's Balsam in my grip. I take cold easily and a few doses of the Balsam always makes me a well man. Everywhere I go I speak a good word for Kemp. I take hold of my customers—l take old men and young men. and tell them confidentially what I do when I take cold. At druggists, 25c and 50c. brilliant plays on both sides, but the Western Hotels carried off the fielding honors, having accepted thirty-three chances with only one misplay, while the Clouds picked up six. Miller, the crack pitcher for the Western Hotels pitched great ball, striking out nine men, giving only one free pass to first and allowing but six scratch hits, while the Westerns got fourteen base hits off Mike Fields for a total of twenty one bases. The Clouds put up a good game in the field, but were weak at the bat, being unable to solve Miller's shoots. Futterer caught a good game and threw down to second like a shot out of a cannon. The Stars changed their name to the Western Hotels, and this makes their eighth straight vic tory, and their new manager, Joseph O'Neil, thinks that his amateur team can' put it all over any team in the State. The next game will be against the Young Sacramentos. Below is the score: R. H. E. Western Hotels 11 14 1 Clouds 0 0 10 Send all challenges to J.

The game was a remarkably good one for amateurs. STANDING OF LEAGUE TEAMS. Sacramento and Santa Cruz are still tied for second place.
