he stated. “The service is disgusted
with the situarron, disgusted with the
same old play of politics. It believes
that the best place is a seat next the
dealer in Washington.
"Personal influences bring greater
reward than War College training.
Making bureau chiefs of officers who
lack this training is an extremely seri
ous matter.”

URGft BUILDING
CONCRETE DAMS
AT WATER PLANT ]
(Continued From Pare L|
of money and a great risk to again
Jeopardize our city by constructing
dirt dams, which under no condition.;
ran withstand an on.Tjh of water litle
the one that descended upon them
that eventful night. I must now urge
upon everyone that the dams be re
constructed of such material that they
wijl stand the weight of the water,
and in a time like the one we have
Just gone through let the water go
over the top without destroying the
dams.
As To Filtration
"Before reconstructing the dams
the question of filtration should be
settled, for if the water is to be fil
tered one dam. as advocated by Nor- i
ton. Bird and Whitman cn page 16 of
their report, except as to height, will’
be all that is necessary. I cannot
agree with them as to height, for I do
not believe that we could store water
to the height of thirty-five feet at the
spillway without throwing it so far
hack up stream that we would
smother a great many of our springs
and flood a great deal of the sur
rounding country.
"I also do not believe that Annapo
lis will need 400,000,000 gallons of |
water stored for some time to come.
If we are not going to have filtration,
and are still going to retain settling
basins, then I must recommend that
the upper dam across the north basin
and the dam across the east basin be
constructed the same as the main dam 1
with spillways in the center to let
heavy flows of water go over th^m. 1
As In the present case you are expect
ing a man to risk his life going to a
sluice gate to open it. If you decide
not to have filtration, then I must
again call to your attention my re
ports of the last two years, of build
ing the third dam on the north stream i
and piping the water to the clear
water basin. As the consumers of
water are the ones interested, I would
sugegst that the two questions—filtra
tion and bonding, for improvements,
be submitted to the voters at the coin
ing city election.
"As to filtration, I do not know whe
ther the City Council has the author-'
ity to submit it, but they have author
ity, under Act of 1922, Chapter 349, to*
suinbit the question of bonding for:
1200,000, or so much as may be neces- 1
sary. And even if not legal, I be-:
lieve the vote of the people could be
taken on filtration, as this question
should be settled before the dams are
rebuilt permanently. For the pres
ent, I would recommend that the core, i
as recommended by Norton, Bird and 1
Whitman, be placed in the brakes of j
the main dam at once. It can be done
at this time, while the dirt is all out,
much cheaper and quicker and with I
much more permanency than by again
filling the holes up with dirt.
To Harness Present Streams
“As the question of more water may I
be upon us this summer. I would rec
ommend that we start at once to har
ness the present streams the company
now owns and has never used, and that
<we also take steps to secure the Bacon
Ridge stream, or pump water from
the head of South river by the route
of the National Defense Highway,
whichever is found to be the most ad
vantageous.
“As to the taking care of the bond
Issue, I believe that it can be done
without any Increase in Wfter rents,
as the receipts of the company have
increased from $28,756.26 from June
30, 1919, to July 1, 1920, to approxi
mately $36,000.00, the present year,
with a very slight increase in operat
ing expenses.
“For your convenience I copy the
report of Norton, Bird and Whitman
on how the dam should be built:
‘Construction Of Dam And Cost’
“ ’Along the center line of the dam
will be driven a row of interlocking
sheet steel piling to an averag? depth
of 25 feet, which will prevent /any
leakage through or under the founda
tions. The tops of the steel piling
will be imbedded in a core wall, a
comparatively thin wall of concrete
which is carried up through the cen
ter of the dam to the top. The pur
pose of this core wall is to interpose
a continuous impervious structure

throughout the entire height and
length of the dam. and prevent any
possibility of leakage. It will also ;
prevent muskrats or other boring ani
mals from starting a leak which
might cause the ultimate failure of
the dam.
** ‘On the inside or upstream face
will be placed an earth embankment
built on a slope of 3 to 1. The em
bankment on the lower face will have
a slope of 2 to 1.
“ ‘An ample spillway of concrete
will be provided to care for excess
flows, resulting from heavy storms.
“ ’With this type of construction an
earth dam is obtained which is safe,
permanent, easy to construct, and.
safeness and permanency considered,
lowest in cost. A dam built only of
earth to the height recommended
would probably lose water by seepage
and be a very much less stable struc
ture.
“ 'We estimate the cost of this dam,
including an allowance for contingen
cies, engineering and constructor’s
profit, will be $123,395/
"It would not require any such
amount as this to reconstruct our
present dams to a height of 12 feet, as
he has estimated for a 35-foot dam.
“I would suggest that the State
Road Commissioners be requested to
construct over the stream a culvert
i of sufficient size, to at all times carry
off the waste water that drains from
the streams. If my recommendation
on this matter, made two years ago,
had been heeded by the State Road
Commissioners, it would have saved
the State several thousand dollars.
' and the water would not have flooded
the property as it did.
| “I was to thank Frank M. Duvall,
Frederick W. Stehle and Thomas S.
1 Dove for the able assistance they gave
me in restoring the dams so we could
pump water. Mr. Duvall and Mr.
Stehle stopped work on contracts they
had and turned their full force to
work on the dams. Mr. Dove had
charge of Mr. Stehle’s men.
“I also wish to commend the work
of ofir engineer, William J. Engle,
who, with all his other work, took
charge of a force of 16 men and direct
ed them in mending the dams.
“I wish to report that the full equip
ment for the electric-driven pump 1s
now at the plant, and Installation will
start this week. The electric wires
have been strung from Best Gate to
the pumping station.”

At the Crownsvilie institution there
are 550 inmates, of which 298 are
females. Patients from this county
at the institution include 14 males
and 27 females.
Against Changes In Conrt Terms
Concerning changes in the court
terms, as suggested by Judge Moss
when he charged the inquest at the
opening of court, the jury states that
after investigation it does not see
where changing the present periods
would be beneficial.
The jury recommends that the
County Commissioners take the nec
essary steps to have the Washington
Baltimore and Annapolis Electric
Railways place flagmen at Shipley’s
station in the Fifth district, and Kel
ly’s crossing and Camp Meade, in the
Fourth district, as a means of elim
inating existing danger.
Renewal of the recommendation of
former grand inquests concerning
provision to afford proper protection
of all county records against fire, is
contained in the jury’s report.
Praised By Judge
Before discharging the jurors.
Judge Moss commended them for the
efficient manner in which their work
was conducted, especially for the fact
that a number of persons were ap
prehended for gambling and liquor,
but admitted that suppression of the
liquor, traffic is a mighty hard matter
for such a body, unless proper as
sistance is given by the police author
ities.
Annapolis All-Stars Win
