ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN. UNSOLICITED LETTER FROM HYDRAULIC ENGINEER JONES On the Water Bond Question It Will be Suicidal to the Interests of Albuquerque to Purchase the Plant at Any Price. To The Evening Citizen: Having followed, with Keen Interest, tho discussion presented In the city paper, concerning the proposed loud issue of the city of Albuquerque, at ,the approaching lection, for the purpose of purchasing and extending th cpreaent water system, I would be glad to give my Idea and conclusions, in your valuable paper, on this absorbing subject, which so vitally affects the future of our city. At tho outset, permit nie to say that I have not heretofore expressed my views in the matter, either publicly or privately, and neither have 1 been called up on to make a statement, in tho press, by anyone; but, the conclusions drawn have been reached through careful ob servations and deliberate study. Furthermore, it I hoped that no one may take exception to an honest opin ion, reached In a conscientious manner, which all of us owo as u duty toward good citizenship. It is believed by tho writer that he has held the confidence and esteem if most of the members of the Water Supply company, and any opinion expressed concerning the present water plant, are uot founded on grievances of a personal na ture. In my miud, any conclusions affecting the solu tion of economic problems in sanitary, hydraulic and mechanical engineering should not bo operative wuen sought through malice or revenge. What occurs to me the proper step for the city coun cil to have taken before ever al'owing an opportunity to vote iu a bond issue, would have been to select not less llian THREE COMPETENT HYDRAULIC ENGINEERS lo pass on the question of whether or not it would be vvi.-,e or judicious for the city to take over the existing wat-T plant as It now stands; tho reason for this will be made plain further on. This step should have followed Immediately after Mr. Riffle made his report. Permit nie to say, with all due respect to the public in general, that the masses are wholly incompetent to pass on the requirments or efficiency of any water sys tem; this is absolutely a question for the hydraulic en gineer, alone, to settle. The people, however, can readily pass on the efficiency of the service after the plant is onco installed; but the conditions as to HOW the service wa.-t obtained passes from them into the broad field of the science of engineering. Now. to the point: Throughout the whole of the water discussion, no person has ever been able to def initely show that water could so furnished ANY CHEAPER by the city after purchasing the plant, tnan what the present company is now doing. Again, from an engineering and geological stand point, a gravity flow of water from the mountains is not only possible, but is a certainty. A flow of at least fi.iMii,(i(ii) gallons of pure mountain water, every twenty four hours, can be developed at the base of the Sandia Mountains, east of the city, in fully three or more local ities; this, in my mind, is true beyond the peradventure of a doubt. Even tho Jomoz country is not beyond our reach, since the city of Los Angolca will bring its water Jy a gravity flow for a distance of one hundred and fifty miles. Should the water come from that source, the problem now occupying the attention of the Commercial Club, in irrigating the valley to tho north of the city, -oul 1 thus be partially solved. lxt me say right here, to the penple of Albuquerque, that the present system of pumping water up hill and then letting it run down again is entirely wrong. Why not utilize gravity, this universal force of nature, so gen- vrotisly placed at our disposal, without money and with out price? The many advantages of this system nre ob vious to all. The chief residence portion of the greater Albuquer que is destined to be on the mesa, about the University Heights. A bill i3 now pending In congress for a whole .section of land on tho Highlands, to be set aside for tho city's principal park. He it said that the Highlands are by right and must be supplied with water. Can the pres ent system do it advantageously Lastly, let us examine into the potency of the pres ent plant before voting the bonds for its purchase. THE LIFE STORY OF A LUMP OF COAL What lii'.ve we here? Why, tiiis is a lump of coal and fomu of vs ancestors. Funny looking ancestors. Yes. they are funny as some of j i. urs. They look like ferns nnd " mosses, lliiK(. forefathers of coal. Itight you are. Hack in the car boniferous era the era in which the earth was busy canning its carbon those ferns were doing business lin ger the names of Sigillariae and they were big as a house and the mosses were like the lycopodium of our day, only they were sixty feet high and bad minks like the old village elms you rea 1 about. And round underneath them was a grov.th of little ferns and little moss es and what not, and all about was a moUt, hot atmosphere that made tliein grow in a hurry. And as they lied they piled up a mass of rotting vegetation that soon got thirl; and waxy and no telling bow deep. Maybe this lasted hundreds of years, mavbe only n decade; but tltat is why some coal seams are only the thickness fit a I nifi- blade and others are ninety feet thick. Is It possible? Sure. And the first thing you know the rising waters cov- rc,l this once glad field of vegetation and thin for ages silt and sand set do. I down upon it and compressed It -and hardened it; the silt and sand in the meantime getting hard and com previo.l from the weight of more silt II, I s.Il.l. And perhaps the waters subsided and y.iwr vegetation another chance, and another coal bed was made which in time became overflowed auain to li,. iinritiHiit while layers of shale and rock ;:rd earth formed above it through the centuries. At'.. i i l;i; orie man? Oh, he wa-n't in on rids.

The kala- mein pipes are better So far, so good;, but the vital point of tho whole question that most concerns the city, if the city main tains its present growth, lies in the inability of further efficient extension of tho present distributing system. IN FACT, THE REACHED, AND This more especially applies to the fire service, rather than to lawns and domestic uses. Doubtless, the question will be asked: How do we know this to be a fact? The reply is easier given than it would be to correct the evil. The difficulty lies In the SMALLNESS of t ic chief distributing mains. The only solution of this p:ol lem, if we wish to build for the greater Albuquerque, j that the present system of mains be replaced by larger ones. This then would mean the inevitable reconstruction of the WHOLE DISTRIUTING SYSTEM, and is doubt less the most serious question now confronting the Water Supply company. IT IS CHIEFLY FOR THIS REASON THAT THE CITY SHOULD NOT BUY THE PRESENT PLANT AT. ANY PRICE, HOW SOEVER SMALL. Were the distributing pipes on an average of six Inches In diameter greater, then there would most certainly be one good reason for purchasing the present plant; and, for myself, I am a strong believer in municipal ownership of public utilities. The extra $50,000, above the $250,000 for the purchase of tho present plant, as set forth In tho proposed bond issue, would not be sufficient to make these changes for a more effective distributing system, much less to ex tend Into new territory. MUCH OF THE OLD PIPE WOULD UNAVOIDABLY BE SPOILED IN TAKING IT UP AND THE CITY WOULD SUFFER A CORRES PONDING LOSS THETEFROM. Another feature r the present plant that is undesir able, is the location ' i the pumping station. This, by all means, should be o .e or two miles up the river from its present site. It is not to be inferred that the water is in any way contaminated; but it is not the place to get tho water supply from the heart of the city, as there is a certain degree of risk, regardless of the greatest pret Bu ttons. In summing up the whole proposition, It cannot be shown that water could be furnished any cheaper through municipal ownership of the present plant, than what the Water Supply company is now doing. It is certain that plenty of pure mountain water can bo had, by a gravity system; thus, forever eliminating the constant expense ,,f pumping by costly machinery. The storage reservoirs would be located far away from the dust and smoke of the city. The Highlands or mesas would become the great residence section of the city, and would be supplied with water with as much ease, under the gravity system, as the low lands In the valley. Tho hydraulic pressure bead could be made any desired unit for fire protection. The new park grounds that con cress will doubtless set apart for our use, could bo beau tified. I beg to say, in conclusion, that it would be far bet ter to extend the existing franchise to a period of, say, twenty-five years, with the assurance of some reduction in the present water rate, THAN FOR THE CITY TO TAKE OVER THE PLANT AT ANY PRICE. OUR TAXES ARE NOW ALMOST PROHIBITIVE; WHY RUSH THE MATTER, WHEN WE HAVE EVERY THING TO GAIN AND NOTHING TO LOSE, BY WAIT ING? The time Is not a great distance in the future until we are ready for municipal ownership of a modern gravity system, furnishing nure mountain water, that will ultimately prove our greatest drawing card for out siders, and a genuine blessing to tho denizens of the" mu nicipality. Very respectfully, FAYETTE A. JOXES. 1 y 1 3" - - 0101 Jlxri.v Presently the fern hears a "click, click," and then is blinded by a light, as witli a hharp point of iron it is picked out of the mass of broken coal.

NEW JJI5UMMEI3 Washington, April 2. Anyone who imagines the wily Jnp is not prepar ing as carefully and comprehensively lor the tutui'e trade war with the Uiil'o.J Slates as ho did for his mili tary war with Russia should pinch Himself and wako up. The latest con sular reports are full of signs. The Japanese chambers of cora n.ciee have resolved In favor of es tablishing in foreign ports "commer cial consuls." These officials would do what United Slates consuls are supposed to do. namely, take an ac tive and intelligent part In fostering foreign markets. The Japanese also plan to abolish tho reciprocity agreements with sev eral foreign nations, to lower the du ties on all raw material entering Jap an, and to increase the tarilt wall against all manufactured goods, and the opening of a world's fair at Tokio. So rapid are its cotton yarn and fabric industries advancing that it will be only u few years before Japan will bo independent in these lines. Cotton mills are being erected, not only to supply the great domestic consumption, but to reach out to the vast markets of China and India. Since 1902 Japan has reduced tne importations of cotton fabrics from $1.;;ol,OuO to $L'Gfi,0(H) last year. Th imports of ginned cotton in the same time increased from $;!4,)0U,OUU to $;;5,ilO,(ltiO. Already Japan has in creased her sales of cotton manufac tures to China to $1 t.nuo.noil. This trade lias been built up practically within the last seven ears. He chief cotton mills are payiug dividends ai high as 'M per cent. At the same lime the government Is experimenting v. ith growing flax in Japan and Man churia. It is predicted that ii will no longer be necessary for Japan to buy rails in Pittsburg. The government Iron foundry at Edaniitsu, near Moji, has 1 ecn greatly enlarged and also is be ing adapted to the manufacture of railway carriage Iron and telegraph wires. The Toyo KIsen Kaisha (Oriental Steamship Co.) is now operating its new lino between Japanese ports and the ports of Chile and Peru whence it v. ill import Peruvian cotton, raw tui ;,'.ir and saltpeter. Meantime congress talks, the re :' a ni consular bill is tot 11 to tatters by spoils hunting politicians; the mer chant marine and warships on the Asiatic station are neglected. WHAT THE KIDNEYS DO.
