Gentlemen The question of supplying tne
city with pure water Is of the utmost Im
portance, and one In which 1 believe all
citizens are deeply interested.
To accomplish this will entail the ex
penditure of several million dollars.
Inasmuch as this matter Is now before
the Uoard of Public improvements for its
consideration and action. In my opinion, be
fore proceedlnK further, we should have the
advice of the very best hydraulic engineers
that this country can produce. A mistake
would cost the city many million dollars.
Therefore, I suggest that the power
be granted for the appointment of a com
mission of three expert hydraulic engineers,
whose duties shall be to carefully examine
the present water plant of the city, and
to thoroughly investigate and submit report
of estimation and recommendation as to the
most feasible manner of providing the cty
with an adequate supply of ciear and
wholesome water.
I Inclose herewith a copy of what I deem
to be a bill appropriate to carry out my
recommendation.
Respectfully.
HOL.UA- WELLS,
Mayor of the City of St. Louis.

St. Louis. May 21, 1301.
To the Honorable Municipal Assemblj', BL
Louis, Mo.:
Gentlemen The question of supplying the
cltj- with pure water Is of the utmost Im
portance, and one in which I believe all
citizens are deeply Interested.
To accomplish this it will entail the ex
penditure or several million dollars.
In so much as this matter la now before
the Board of Public Improvements for Its
consideration and action. In my opinion, he
fore proceeding further, we should have
the advice of the very best hj-draullc en
gineers that this country can produce. A
mistake would cost the city many million
dollars.
Therefore, I suggest that the power be
granted for the appointment of a Commis
sion of three expert hj-draulic engineers,
w-hosc duties shall be to carefully examine
the present water plant of the cllv. and to
thoroughly Investigate and submit "report of
estimation and recommendation at to the
mot' feasible manner of providing the cltv
with an adequate supply of clear anik
wholesome water.
I Inclose herewith a copy of what T deem
to be a bill appropriate to cany out my
recommendation.
Respectfnllv.

RESOLUTIONS, ETC.
Mr. Stannard offered the following resolu
tion: Whereas, the press and various persons
are endeavoring to create, and to some ex
tent have crented, the Impression that the
House of Delegates is holding up the tem
porary appropriation bill to the detriment
of the city's good; and.
Whereas, the temporary appropriation bill
Is not before this body, hut Is now, and has
been since its framing. In the possession of
the Council, excepting the period from
April 30 to May 8. the shortest possible
time for the House to permit It to go
through Its proper channels; and.
Whereas, the members of this body have
already passed said bill, ns amended, which
cuts out the J1O2.O0O for the Sheriffs posse;
and.
Whereas, we are willing to vote this
money only after a court of record has
ruled that It Is a Just claim against the
city, this being disputed by many lawyers;
now, therefore. In order to aid the new ad
ministration In keeping its promise to the
pcoplo of clean streets and alleys, gdod
sewers and a general improvement of con
ditions; Be It resolved. That the Comptroller be re
spectfully requested to draft a separate bill
for the appropriation of said $102,000.00, that
it may stand before the Munclpnl Assembly,
tho courts and tho people on Its Individual
merits, and the various departments be per
mitted to perform the duties designed for
them;
Resolved furter. That the dally press be
respectfully requested to print In their

FOREIGN MARKETS. -v
Shadow of aVorthern Pacific Ex- V
citement Still Curbs Trade.
lAndon, May 2G. The shadow of the Northern
Pacific excitement Is still hanelni; over the Ion
don Stock Exchange. This, combined with th
approaching holUlajs. ha brought American
dealings during the last week practically to s,
standstill, and home stocks were quiet in tjm
path. Th action of the Stock Exchange Committee
for General Purposes In suspending the buying
In of Northern Pacific shares until June JO has
been somewhat criticised on the ground that Uie
bears had already bad more grace than wad ex
pected. It la understood that a number have al
ready covered, prices running up to 210. A sug
gestion has also been made that the committee,
refuse further protection except on transactions
officially reported to them. It has further been
pointed out that In this manner the true dimen
sions of the short Interest could be seen and adn
cuate steps taken to clear up. the situation. Thn
resumption of normal conditions is impossible!
until this la accomplished.
A curious detelopment of the past week ha
been that while tha Northern Pacific crista wa.i
convulsing- the big- arbitrage houses, a smaller
but very similar corner in London. Brighton and
South Coast ordinary shares caught hair a dozen
local brokers. The action of the stock Excbane
Committee for General Purposes in the matter
of the Northern Pacific settlement, furnished tha
victims of tbo Brighton comer with a precedent,
so dear to the Englishman.
Cotton Conditions.
Manchester, May 26. Aside from tha fact that
the approach of tne holidays has Influenced buy
era to complete transactions wnenever this nn
posstb'e. there has been expansion and Inquiry
during the past week that has frequently result
ed In tbe placing of orders and in aalea of stand
ard makes. The India and China demands ba
revived. A spirit of hopefulness prevails, and.
baaed partly on to steadiness of cotton during il
.he past fortnight, there j, u expectation of i
better business after the holidays. There nan J
been some miscellaneous Inquiry for finishing and 2

Northern Paelflo Effects.
Berlin, May 26. Conditions on the Boerae last
week were very stagnant, notwithstanding an.
eaaler money market than had been known Tor
years. Many factors combined to produce a weaie
market. The Northern Pacific incident continues!
to react here, causing an almost total ceaaatlon
of business in the American department. In addi
tion to thu. the new mortgage bank scandal had
a very depressing effect, other causes of weak
ls."nwAr5.itbe "u"lan crop report, the reduced
April earnings of the great coal companies. th
renewed price falls and shut-downs at Elsenmarkt
and heavy sales of Swiss northeast railroad stock
S!piuiis! oa po11" "v "
The bank scandal caused heavy selling- of obli
gations of the two concerns affected, but the
other mortgage banks held their own. the nubUn
being convinced that their condition Is sound.
Much anxiety prevails regarding the Pomeranian
Bank, the Government'a commission report con
cerning it being awaited with lmpatlenceVA elm

respectively upon shorts covering, and also upon
buying by Brat-class banks like the Deutschn
Bank. General bank stock lost an average of 4
Klnts upon a growing conviction of uafavorabl
nkinc conditions, and the belief that the low
Interest, the light brokerage business and the
declining value of securities held would necessi
tate a renewal of wrlte-offa at the end of the
Government .funds 'were went but prices were
fairly maintained. German 3i were returned in
rather large amounts from New Tork and lon

"The Northern Pacific nfTa.fr " u th .,.

New lork and London of the common shares.
which were not dealt In on the Berlin Boerse.
Several aalea of the common stock were effected
Friday at prices from 190 to 210. to buyers caught
in the corner." -
Notwithstanding the foregoing statement. It I
ascertained on good authority that satlnfactorC
arrangements have been made for the German
shorts at the London settlement.
Foreign exchange Is declining through the Im
proved money market abroad. New Tork Is weak
through the returning of securities thither. Am
sterdam Is now below the rold point, after som
gold exports during the week.
