Cooney that the petition was in the possession of said B. E. Cooney and that said Cooney had no desire or intention to show it to Genzberger or anyone else; that as a consequence of this kingly attitude upon the part of one of Silver Bow's servants, Mr. CGenzberger did not at that time be come auwtre of 'the fact that the pe titian was in reality fatally defective in that it was signed by less than 50 pei' cent of the freeholders when the law required at least 60 per cent, but that later, after the legal timel for protest -15 days- had passed, he did succeed in seeing a copy of the petition, and found that it dis closed the aforementioned insuf ficiency of signers. Wherefore, Mr. Genzberger de clares in his complaint, that improve .'ment district No. 5 was illegally formed; and seeks to enjoin the county commissioners of Silver Bow, Byron E. Cooney, Joseph M. Fabian and Otto E. Simonson, from proceed ing further in their purpose to adver tise for bids for the construction of the sewers. NOTICE POSTED (Continued From Page One.)

Water Situation in Livingston Explained Taking exception to editorial mat ter with reference to the city water situation in Livingston, thle mayor of that city and members of the city council have sent to the Bulletin an explanation of the true state of af fairs, which is given publication herewith. The editorial in question was bastd on alpptl'enltt erlrlneous in formation supplied in news dis Ipatches from Livingston, which dis Spatches were printed in various papers throughout tile state and pur ported to show that the eity officialns were combatting an application for; lower' water rates which had been presented to the state public service commission. The letter of the' Livingston officials, in full, is as' follows: July 19. 1919.' ltditor Butte Bulletin. Butte, Montana. Dear Sir: Referring to your editorial of thel 161th inst. relative to the water situation in Livingston, also reflect-, ing on the honesty of the city of ficials of L1ivingston. We are ccr tainly surprised at the lack of knowledge you possess as to the water situation in this city. It is quite evident that you have either been misinformed by parties inter-i ested in the Monida Trust companyl j0or you are maliciously endeavoring 1 to mislead the people of Livingston as to the true facts of the case. As to the extravagance of tihe city of ilicials, the records of the city are open for inspection by the public at all times and we court the fullest investigation that the public may wish to make as to the workings of the city government. In the first place the city of Livingston has not filed a protest .gainst a reduction of water rates by the Monida Trust but is prepared and intends to furnish the data asked for in a letter from the public utilities commission. A copy of which letter is as follows: Subject Docket No. 720. I Mr. Elbert F. Allen, City Attorney, Livingston, Montana. Dear Sir: We send herewith a copy of notice of hearing to be held at the court house in the city of Livingston, MIont., July 23, 1919, at 9 o'clock t. m., for the purpose of taking 'estimony on the question of the ap plication oif Monida Trust for a nodification of its rates charges for furnishing water in the city of Liv ngston, Mont. In this connection the commission would be glad to have as mnuch in ormllation as ipossible in regard to the mnunicipal water plant, recently constructed and now in operation, as to its values, its earning capacity. and expenses of operation; also a trief statement to be filed as an e:: itibit covering the history of the lalnt. Yours very truly. PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION. For your information we would state that the city of Livingston en :teavored for a number of years to urtchase the old water plant of the Monida 'T'rust company, but the best price we could ever get from them was $t00,000, which was entirely aut of the question, as the new up !o-date plant of the city, which is ,worth about twice as much as the ild water plant, was built for $225, 900. This is the amount authorized my the official bond issue, which was tarried by nearly a 10-to-1 vote of the people, and in that connection it might bie of interest to you to know hat in 1918 Monida Trust reported o the assessor of Park county, a valuation of $81,400 on its water L plant, and in 1919 a valuation of $88,90)0. At the same time it re ported to the public service commis sion of the state of Montana a vala ation of aplproximately $307,000, and in 1919 reported depreciation of laid water plant of about $119,000. The increased pressure of the neow city water plant will shortly result in the reduction of the fire insurance: rates of the city, which in itself, will be a great benefit to the entire comn-; munity, not only through increased pressure, but through having 138 hydrants with the new system as 'onmpared with 111 hydrants which! lie city had with the Monida Trusti 'omtpany. The new city plant has a reservoir with a capacity of 1,000, I00 gallons compared with the small! reservoir of the Monida Trust com many. which has a capacity of only ;00.000 gallons. (The gentleman If color, which you refer to, is Ilprohb ibly concealed in the new city •.servoir, as he would have so much nore room there). Furthermore, during the annualI uigh water, ibringing with it. as it lways does, a imuddy andt unsani :ary condition of the river water nd rendering it unfit for donmestic ,onsumption, clean, pure water can inly be furnished by a modern andi, :trictly sanitary filtration process tpproved by the state board of ;ealth, such as only the new city vrater plant can furnish. There is no doubt in our minds where the people of ].i ini :.ton lan i on the water question. As toar is v, are concerned Ihe .llliid TI'rut t company can give aw\\'ay lthir walr if they want to. but you can resl assured the people of l.i ilciston are not going to turn lo\len thueir owni water plant, which they hav\i Iouightl for years to attain.l and w\hilch the will have to pay for hy otheirt mt,:ns if it is not pIut on a paying ll is.

The city is furnishintg tpure clheti ically-treated water to their ipatronll at the same rates tas f'urnished I\by the Monida Trust cntllany. which has no filtration systenl. The city cannot reduce their water rates at Ille present tiime oin cetount of tih large amount of 111money nectessii ry it) pay the interest on thIe water Ihands, but after they Iae paid for theret isl 1o reason why the city cannott reducele their water rates to tabtt)ll hal1' whiat they are at presetnt.
