A meeting of the Taxing District
Council is t be huld todcy, pursuant
to a call f r the purpose of cotiMd-trinp,
as is it is given out, a proposition from
what is known as the Citii.rW Wat'r
Company, to supply the city with
water. Thxa tef ms to us to bs some
thing farcical in this. The Citizens'
Company has no water wrks and
'therefore no water, and then the con
tra: t of the D's'rict with the Memphis
Water Company for a fupply of water
has sixteen years yi t to run. Besides
all this, the District is practically com
mitted to the policy of supplying itself
with water, and by i s dec'"ion in the
case of the Mimphia Gas Company, it
is opposed to the stree's bting torn np
by new companies. In view of all
this, we think the Council will bo
thi owing away its time to consider
a proposition from a ay company.
What it ough. ti do is to appoint a
committes from among its own mem
bers to consider the nays and means
so as to be ready for the Citizens'
Committee aid loss no time in taking
the initiatory steps for the construc
tion of its own water works. Water
ought to be as frte at a:r to the peo
ple, and no company, new or old,
should be allowed ti dole it out to
them at so much per gdlon. Wh .t
the people want is not contract?, bat
water works of their own, and the
sooner the better.
A cobbkspondemt, whose letter we
publish in another co nran, expresses
himself surprised that t e Appial
should be opposed to prohibition, and
he proceeds to ply u with all the
staple arguments' of the fanat'ts who
want to try and accomplish the old,
old job of making; nun go.rd by law, a
job the Chnrih and Bat t igeth'r,
though trying ever si hard for centu
ries, ha7e not yet bsen able to accoin
plieh in Europe. Moes gave the
Jews a die'a y system which long sgo
lapsed into "innoeuons dessuetnde,"
and the M stem's rule aga'nt
wines is of fori e only, with those
who cannot bay thejm. Liquor
drinking, like gambling;, caunot
be prevented, but it any be regu
lated. The Pfohibition'sta might as
well try to prohibit the wearing of cor
sets, which, acrodiog t Ha'l
and Fco'e and othur special's,
are responsible for niou-tentbs of the
il's that women stjflsr from. No
womai would venture beyond the
privacy of her ownioun without

cry for a law t- at shall interfere with
the right of private judgment, even
they would be f uui in the ranks,

spondent to orgatiza a party for its
suppression. Bur thty need not fuer
any such mnvrmeat. The women
have learned to adpt tbewielves to

without dttr mcDt t their physical
