THE INCREASED WATER RATES.
What Capu Sytnons Says About Them.
The attention of CapL Tbos. W. Symons, of the
engineer department of the District government,
was directed by a Star reporter to-day to a reso
lution adopted last night by citizens' Association
No. 4 inquiring whether the Commissioners have
the legal right to increase the water tax, and also
how It will affcct poor people who are compelled
to purchase water by reason of the very general
removal of the public pumps. The first thing
Capt. Symons did was to open a copy of Webb's
Digest, lying near his elbow at page 39<i and to
it?-, 5 following paragraph to the reporter:
i hat the said corporation (or Washington) shall
by ordnance act or otherwise, to
establish a scale or annual rates tor the supply Ind
J^o'saM ?*ater, apportioned to different classes
of buildings in said city, ? ? ? and to modify
alter, amend, Increase or reduce such scale rroui
time to time; ? * ? to collect such rates or rents
when so fixed, in advance or otherwise."
THE INCREASED RATE AUTHORIZED BY LAW.
"Now." said Capt. Symons, turning to the re
porter, "you can see what authority the Commis
sioners have to Increase the water rent, and this
authority has not been diminished or reduced bv
subsequent acta of congress. So far as the In
crease will affect poor people, you may say that it
will be scarcely perceptible. Most all the poor
people were taxed under the old rates at $3 30 per
annum for a house having a frontage of iu reet
and two stories in heighu The new rates will
only increase that amount by 20 cents.
You will find that nearly one-half of the houses
in the city pay this rent and no more. In the
case of houses which are lour stories in height
and have a frontage of, say thirty feet, the new
water rates will be an increase of two dollars and
lour cents over the old. Therefore you can see
that seventy-live per cent of the increase will fall
upon these large houses."
'THE NECESSITY FOR THIS INCREASE,"
he said, "arises from the fact that the
income heretofore derived from this source
has not been sufficient to support the department,
as is evidenced by the many complaints that have
, n 01 tlie Inadequacy or the water sup
ply. 1 he Increase is also necessary from the fact
that at the present time there are several sections
of the city absolutely without proper protection
from lire. My object is to place tire hydrants and
other appliances in these localities, but it cannot
be done without money.
THE REMOVAL OP PUMPS.
"Before we got water from the Potomac River,"
he continued, "the people were supplied by pumps.
Since that time three-rourthsof the pumps have
been removed, but not by the District authorities.
In the majority of cases it was done by the owners
of the property on which they stood, who did not
wish them there. Where the pumps were and are
removed by order of the Commissioners It is because
It was ascertained by analysis that the wall?
was impure and unat for use. Besides, the service
of the pumps is inadequate, nor is there enough
money to keep them in order. We have had for
the year 1887 only $3,000 to repair these pumps,
which sum you will acknowledge is not sufficient,
when it is known that there Is any number or
pumps in the territory between Brlghtwood and
Anacostla. as fast as we can we are replaelotr
the old pumps with handsome new ones, but that
cannot be done unless there is money."
THE qtJESTION OF REVENUE.
'Then, too, you must remember that quite one
half of the revenue obtained from water rent is
used to pay the District's share of the interest on
the sinking fund. If we could have the entire use
of the revenue to run the department there would
be no more complaints but you know that we
ha vent. There is also another matter
to which I called the Commissioners'
attention In my last annual report *
said Capu Symons in conclusion. "1 mean that
the water-main tax should be increased from lv
to 1# cents per square foot. Why? For the re J
; son simply that nowadays we are putting down
larger mains, which, of course, cost more money.
In the old days, when that rate of l v cent was
flxwi, the pipes were only about three to four
inches in diameter, but at the present time they
are much larger."

has since existed. His death occurred after a pro
