THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, 1 HUH SPAY, SEPTEMBER 3. 1808.
THE CITY OF ROCHESTER. Th city of Roohoster (N. T.) li one of the moat flourishing and attractive towns In tbe Interior or tbe country. It is located on both, sides of tbe Genessee river, but seven miles from Its entranoe into Lake Ontario. The Genesaee river affords unlimited water power, t nil advantage of which has been taken by the Inhabitants, especially in the department of Soar manufacture, the flouring mills being perhaps the most extensive of their kind In tbe United States. The 33 mills which were In Operation in 1860 had a capacity for produolng over 7009 barrels a day, Tbe town was settled In 1813, and was Incorporated as acltylnlS34. Its rapid progress in all the elements of pros perity 1 indicated by its great increase In poiulatlon, which In 1860 amounted to 48,000, and ia 1885 to about 60 000. The Water Works Company of the city, which keep even paoe with the other Institutions of the city, bave thrown a limited amonnt of their first mortgage seven per cent, bonds npon the Philadelphia market. These reliable and profitable securities may be obtained of Olen- dennlng A Davis, tbe agents in this elty, at No 48 8, Third street, at the low rate of 87U per cent, with the accrued interest from the first o July last. The interest is payable seml-annu ally, in January and July, and altogether the bonds present one of the most desirable Invest menu now obtainable. In this eonneotlon, the following correspondence is of Interest: Mr. A. H. Nioolay wrote, July 28, 1808, to John Williams, Esq., President of the Uooh kstkb Watbb Wobks Compant, desiring to knew the condition of the Water Works of that elty, also to ascertain the time when the com pany contemplated introducing the water In the City of Rochester, towhioh hereoelved the following reply, together with a long report of the Cbltf Engineer of the Company, under Whose direction the works are being eon atruoted, giving an explicit and interesting ao count la detail of the enterprise, and furnish ing information worthy of perusal, a copy ol Which Is herewith attached. Rochester, August 3, 1863. Mr. A. H. NIcolay Sin Yours asking mror nation respecting tbe Rochester Water Works Company, was reoelved a few days slnoe. Having been confined to my house by sick ness for the past two months, I conld not an swer you as fully as desired. I, therefore, ad dressed the Chief Engineer in charge, request ing him to give me a full statement, which I end herewith, and have every reason to believe the repoi t to be a oorreot statement of the work. Yours, respectfully, JOHN WILLIAMS, President Rochester Water Works Co. Chief Engineer's Report. Rochester, n. Y., July 81, 1888. John Williams, Esq., President Rochester Water Works Company Dear Sir: In com pliance with your request, and in accordance With the letter of Mr. NIcolay, of New York, Which yon bave handed me, I beg to submit the following report on the present condition of the work: At tbe commencement of the undertaking, it was confidently believed that tbe works woull be so far completed as to let on the water by tbe first or abont the middle of the present month; but, notwithstanding It has been pushed forward with great energy and Judlolons management, many impediments have been met with, and causes herein explained have presented themselves, delaying the completion of the work. Legislation has been necessary In order to render the securities ol the company unquestionably safe. The corporation has ex isted since 1852; the parties interested deemed It advisable to have every act (lnoludlng the con tract for building tbe work) legalized by the legislature up to the present time. This has been done. Considerable trouble has presented itself In procuring tbe rights of way, In consequence of tbe beliet among the farmers, agitated by mill owneis on the sueam ofBupply, that the mills would be deprived of water. All this trouble has been obviated by the decision to go nine or ten miles nearer tbe Hemlock Lake, and by tbe location of the large reservoir near Richmond Mills, which comprises an area of fitly acres, and will hold when completed, and Indepen dent of tbe reservoir at East Henrietta (twenty acres in extent), a sufficient supply for the city el Rochester for the whole dry season. It is the intention to store water in these re servoirs when the water in tbe lakelsabundant (and the mills are even endangered by the swollen stream), for use in the dry season, when it would interfere with tbe working of tbe many mills on the line to take the supply from the outlet. Since this plan baa been adopted, mill owners and farmers are giving t very facility to the prose, eution of the work. The great oostaole to an amicable adjustment of right? of way has been removed; ttie vexed question or Interfering with the right of mill owners, which has done more than anything else to retard the work in its early history, Is entirely and satisfactorily adjusted; and by taking the water in all its nrlly from tbe gravelly outlet of Hemlock ake, the only prejudloe tbe citizens of Ro chester have baa to the water la most agreea bly dispelled; and when It becomes generally known that the company will get the supply from the lake, tbe fact will operate moit benefi. trlally on the securities and public confidence in the eharacttr of the work. The foregoing will fully explain the reason why the water is not to be Introduced as soon as has been expected. As concerns the mechanical construction of the work, notwithstanding It was required to be completed In July, and every means which energy and money oonid command have been actively used. It has been impossible, in my pinion, to push the work to a more advanoed state than It is at present in. Large quantities of materials have had to be procured; maohlnery for erecting pipe bad to be erected, in order to make even a proper com mencement to so large an undertaking; la borers have been extremely soaroe during the whole season, notwithstanding the contractor has procured men from New York and other places at different times, and is paying twenty five cents per day higher wages than is paid on any other work; notwithstanding those diffi culties, the eonstant Importation of emigrants from New York, has kept up a very large force, and tbe work has progressed with great ra pidity. After the completion of haying and harvesting, there will be a great increase in the force employed upon the work, and the latter part of the work wlU be completed with dee patch. The work may be included in the following divisions, viz: The distributing pipe In the city; the distributing reservoir near tbe city line, the Henrietta Reservoir, seven and a-half miles from the elty; the storing reservoir near Richmond Mills; tbe supply main, seven and a-half miles from the oily to the Henrietta Reservoir, of sixteen miles from the Henrietta Reservoir to the storing reservoir, and one-half mile from the storing reservoir to tbe souroe. There are abont ten miles ot east-Iron pipe laid to lh9 streets of the city, and a consider able quantity of pipe now on band, ready to be ioM The DlDe laid includes all the mojt dtlll. ult part of the work; the sixteen lnoh oast-Iron main under the bed of the Genesee River is uih in a t rxnnh blasted out Of tbe solid rock. and re-filled, to preolude the possibility of damage to the pipe under any olroumstanoes.

Tills work was Intel ranted by fce early winter front or it would have been completed with tha force then employed, in abont two Weeks. ' ' Of the sixteen miles of conduit pipe to be laid south of tbe Henrietta Reservoir, and to oon riect with the storing reservoir at Rlnbrnond Mills, about four miles are laid and being covered up. A large foroe is at work opening tbe f retioxiefi. and a qnantity of pipe Is ready t- ne laid. This work was processing before harvest time, at the rate of three miles per montb. Another pipe factory is being established at Hicbmond Mills, and wben harvest is over and laborers plenty, extra foroe will be put at work on tbe different sections, so as to ensure a oom ilme?n 0t thework tbe earliest possible The large reservoir at Richmond Mills will be completed simultaneously with the other work. Considering tbe extensive preparations made, the facilities for prosecnttna- the work, the prospect of a large influx of laborers after harvest, and tbe quantity of material provided I have every rea -on to expect tfat tbe work will be ready for the introduction of water into This work, when oompleted, will be ol a obar- country.
