A CARD In Herniation of Falne Statement* Made Against the City Water 00. To the niblic of Lo« Angelea city: In the Bereede issued by the anony mous advocate of city bonds, the state ment of the revenue per tap is made as collected by several eastern cities for their water supply. How misleading it is if it does not show the family rates will be seen by the accompanying table. These cities, except Los Angeles, all have their own water works; and, while the revenue per tap averages as repre sented, the family rates are all far above. This is explained by the fact that many of them are large manufac turing towns, and pay for such purpoees different rates irom families, and many of them pay meter rates for manufac turing uses. . Then the amount of water furnished per capita Bhows how much more water we furnish than any of the cities above named. If the price should be regu lated by the amount of water furnished, then the Los Angeles City Water com pany furnishes water cheaper than any city in the list, except Wilmington, Del.

No other city on the Pacific coast has lower average rates than ours, and most of them are much higher. It is noted in the Bcreed referred to, in a comparison of rates between Denver City, in Colorado, and the municipal works in South Denver, that the one, a private company, collects $35.58 per tap, while the South" company collects only $11.80. Now, South Denver is a small place, and has 410 taps only. The operating expense of the works in 1890 was $3711. The interest on bonded water debt was $9600, a total of $13.311; amount collected of consumers directly, $4943. The shortage of $8868 per year has to be paid by a tax levy. Prescott, Ariz., is shown aB collecting $11.10 per tap. It has 238 taps, and col lects $2650, leaving a deficiency for operating expenses and interest of $4150 to be made up by direct tax on the peo ple. The statistics given above are col lected by the Engineering Newß Pub lishing company, for 1890, and are as nearly official as it is possible to get. Many of these cities collect a portion of their revenue for water iroru other city funds; that is, the fire department is charged with a certain amount for fire purposes, the street department for the amount used for street purposes, the eewer department for flushing the bsw ers. This reduces the amount collected from private users, but it is made up in directly from tax levies. It must be re membered that the Los Angeles City Water company furnishes all the water for public use, amounting to quite 1,000, --000 gallons per day, free. If the city would pay for this amount, the consum ers' rate would be largel? reduced. As their rates are now collected, the prices average less than those fixed by the city ordinance ; and only in one particular do they exceed it, and that is, we make a minimum rate of $1 per family for small bouses instead of 75 and 90 cents—while our contract entitles us to $2. For all houses of rive or six rooms, with closet, bath and yard, our rates are lower than any city ordinance yet made by the city council. In another lying screed, probably got ten up by the same anonymous party, it is stated that the city of Chicago charges $6 a year for a good Bized house, with plenty of lawn, bath and closet, while this company charges from $100 to $120 per year. This statement is absolutely false. Iv 1890, Chicago's rate was $10 for an ordinary family, and $3 for sprinkling the fronts of a city lot, which average perhaps 10x25 in frontage. For Btibles and animals a considerable charge is made. But it should be borne in miud that Chicago is a great city of about 1,000,000 people, compactly built, and is not to be properly compared with Los Angeles with her many lawns. In 1890 33 of the largest cities in Illinois averaged $22.74 per family per year. When we consider the large amonnt of water used here for lawn purposes, and the greater cost of laying down a water plant in both material and wages, the comparison is highly favorable to the Los Angeles City Water company, and no fair-minded man who will take the trouble to examine this statement aud look up the authorities we can give him, can be made to believe that should the city own its own water works it can sup ply water any lower, without making up the deficiency from some other source. It is proposed to expend $526,000 for the head-works pumping plant and dis tributing mains over the territory occu pied by the Citizens' Water company on tha hills. This will require an amount of $52 UOO raer year for the inter est and sinking fund. Under ordinary municipal management, it will not be possible to collect, at the present ordi nance rates, a sufficient amount to more than pay the operating expenses of such a plant, which will necessarily be much greater than the expense of the present system, both for fuel and for labor. The interest and sinking fund will have to be met by he people of the entire city, in the shape of an increased tax levy. The auditor, in his statement of money required for city purposes for the cur rent year, asks for over $560,000. Of this amount, $55,335 are required as in terest ami $84,550 for the sinking fund of the debts already incurred. In addi tion, $395,000 of sewer bonds are just issued; add this to the foregoing, and yon have: Interest, $75,085, and for sinking fund, $104,300. Add to this $526 000 of water bonds, to be issued for the joint benefit of only one-fifth of the population, and it will make the enor mous amount of $101,385 interest and $130 600 sinking fund, or a total of $231,985 as a yearly levy for the fanded debts alone. Are the taxpayers of this city prepared to Btand up for this tax, in addition to the rapidly increasing LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MOMING, OCTOBER 24, 1892. annual expense of our growing city? The anonymous writers for the water bond advocate would have the taxpayers believe that the Los An geles City Water company collect for water $300,000 per annum. The total water rates for the three systems under control by the Los Angeles City Water company, for the last fiscal year, was less than $240,000. This was the gross receipts, out of which all the expenses of maintenance have to be paid. Could this city operate the plant, as proposed tb be constructed by their engineer at an estimated cost of $2,996,000, and pay the cost of maintenance and interest, from these receipts? And how could they lower the rates, without making up the deficiency by some indirect means ? If required to pay the interest and sinking fund from the water receipts, it would be absolute ly impossible to do bo. These are seri ous questions that taxpayers are called upon to answer by their votes at the coming election. It has not been the policy of the water company to take notice of all the foolish and vindictive charges made by the advocates of the water bonds; but the anonymous articles above referred to have been bo widely distributed that they feel called upon to reply to some of them at this time. First—What has the water company done for the laboring men of this city? They have distributed more money for labor, and will continue to do so, than any other corporation in the city, and they pay for alt unskilled white labor cot less than $2 per day, and have mver yet hired a Chinaman upon their works. No man has ever Heen dictated to or interfered with as to his political beliefs and opinions, and the company has studiously abstained from mixing with the Dolitics of the city. The etatement made in these dodgers to the contrary is an unmitigated lie. The stockholders are mostly residents of the city, interested in its welfare and proud of its achievements, and ready to bear their share of its burdens. They have at all times dealt liberally with the city, reducing their rates from time to time as the growth of the city would justify; and are today selling water at 50 per cent less than the rates specified in their contract and lease. In their recent suit with the park commissioners, they have simply tried to protect the consumers by preserving their reservoir from any contamination, and still hope to prevail upon the park commissioners to permit them to keep a fence around the reservoir. The water right leased by the city, and the water which is to be delivered to the consumers, was from the river water: which has become so turbid of late years and so filthy as to be unfit for domestic consumption. This company has expended large sums of money to develop spring water, unsur passed in quality and of sufficient quan tity for the needs of the entire city, which they are now delivering through their mains. The declaration that they have built their works out of the earn ings of the property is absolutely false. The original stock was assessed and paid up in full. Additional stock was afterwards issued and paid in full; be side, they have a bonded debt of $300, --000 and a floating debt of $100,000, all of which has been expended in this city in their plant. They have never paid over 6 per cent per annum in dividends, and often passed dividends to make needed improvements at times when the threatened litigation by the city coun cil has prevented them from issuing bonds. And for four years and five months of their lease no dividends have been declared. There are so many statements in these dodgers, in which they refer to the water company, that are absolutely false, that it would take more time and space to refute them than can be given in one article; but of this the voters and water users may be assured, that while this corporation owns and operates their works, they will do so without meddling with the politics of the city, and will meet the wants of their consumers as far as it is possible to do so. The com pany has made arrangements to intro duce their water upon the territory here tofore supplied by the Citizens' Water company; aud believe they can supply not only a good quality of water, but at as reasonable prices as they are doing to the bal ance of the city. Some of the news papers of the city have recognized the danger of voting for bonds at the pres ent time, and their prudent warnings hate provoked Bcurrilous attacks from the frenzied writer of the late anony mous articles, which are disgusting to all fair-minded men. Should the writer of these malicious screeds accidentally bite himself, he would undoubtedly die of the venom. The coat of delivering water to the people depends upon the cost of the plant, as well as upon the current ex pense of maintaining it. Very few citieß have as large a territory over which it is necessary to carry the water aB Los An geles has, and it requires a very expensive plant to reach all parts of the territory that we cover. The* number of fan'ilies that we reach here, are in many cities within half the area. We have been obliged to put in small mains to supply the Bpareely settled districts, but we replace them as the localities in crease in population. This great extent of our mains makes the delivery of water proportionately moie costly. Many of these small mains have been put in by O. W. Cbilds, and by the Roger's system and by the Eaßt Side water company, whose plants we have bought and which mains are being re placed from time to time, as the demand would justify.
