CITY WATER MAINS
Citizens Federation Takes Ac

SEWAGE SYSTEM INCLUDED
Resolutions Indorsing Teachers'
Pension and Retirement
" Loot after the Interests or the sub
urb by which the District of Colum
bia Is ringed, and you not only are
conferring a great benefit upon the
clUtens of those localities, but you
are assisting In bettering tho District
This Is the view of a dozen or
more delegates to the Federation of
Citizens Associations, expressed at Its
regular meeting held in the board
'room of -the District Building last
night, when the question of Indors
ing the project of extending the Dis
tant ser and water system into
Maryland came up for discussion.
A recommendation from the Poto
mac Park Citizens' Association, read
by Allan Davis, chairman of the pub
lic health committee of the federa
tion, that the latter organization as
sist the Washington Suburban Sani
tation Commission In Its efforts to
have the District water and sewer
system connected with those of cer
tain sections In Prince George's Coun
ty, Mi, brought forth some opposi
tion. Say D. C Has Hands Full.
Some of the delegates maintained
that the District of Columbia, at tho
present time, has Its nans full in
looking after water and sewer mains
within ta own limits. Dr. Kmory
:Ar Bryant, of the Connecticut Avenuo
Citizens' Association, explained that
he did not oppose the principle of
making the suburbs in the adjoin
ing States of Maryland and Virginia
healthful In every way.
He declared, however, that he op
posed the expending of money for,
connections with these communities,
when there are localities within the
District limits greatly In need of
water and sewerage.
Maryland and Virginia communities
adjoining the District, are crowding
bur schools, schools intended primar
ily for the children who live In the
District," Dr. Bryant said. "The, city
is glad td help these outsiders when
ever possible. But this Is an imposi
tion. ' . .
"By forcing the District to look af
ter the water and sewer systems of
these suburban communities, you are
placing a burden on the whole city."
. Would AU Help City.
E. P. Colladay, of the' Chevy Chase
Citizens Association, in answering
Dr. Bryant, declared that- such an 'ex-
. tehsfonriaot only -wouley betiefiC-'ttJ
immediate suburbs in question, out
would greatly help the District.
"It is generally knownhe declare
ed, "that the extension or our sewer
age system Into the suburbs Is for our
own' protection. Our own superin
tendent of sewers will tell you that.
If this is not done pretty soon, all of
our streams will be polluted by the
sewage' from these suburbs. As It Is
now. Rock Creek Is feeling tne ef
fects of it.
"By extending the mains to the
District line at the Prince George's
county boundary at this time, much
money can be saved. Later streets
wilVbe laid there, and It will be neces
sary to dig Into them if the work is
to be carried on.
Hay Xeeil Maryland's Help. (
"We must co-operate with the sis
ter suburbs. Some day we will have
to call on Maryland for water from
the Patapsco river to suppfement our
present supply. If Maryland does not
care to give us this water, she doesn't
have to. We have an opportunity
now to do a Maryland county a good
turn, and at the same time benefit
ourselves. We should grasp this op
portunity." P. M. McKlnney, of the Handle
Highlands Association, told the dele
gates that'if the District possessed
a sewer trunk line, he would not ob
ject to connecting with the suburbs.
"We have nothing of this kind," he
continued. "Sooner or later, it means
that the District will be the clearing
house for the sewage of three or
four Maryland counties.
"If the recommendations are adopt
ed. It means that we are looking
after the Interests of the suburbs out
side the- District before caring for
"The water supply at this time in
many of the suburbs is Inadequate.
We should not be so extravagant with
our present supply."
Clayton Urges Adoption.
W. McK. Clayton said that, from
every imaginable standpoint, therec
ommendatlons should be adopted.
"Hundreds of Washlngtonlans," he
said, "have moved across the line out
side of the District, In order to retain
their franchises. They Cannot vote
here, and they feel it their duty to
live In a section where they have suf
frage. These suburbs, now being dis
cussed, are peopled by such persons.
They are a part of the District, and
as such, have a right to call on the
District for aid.
"But they can exist without assist
ance from us. I am supporting the
proposition because I realize that
what benefits those sections, directly
benefits and concerns -the whole Dis
trict. In reality, there Is no line sep
arating Washington from those sec
tions." . , .
The recommendations were adopted.
Oppose Sunday Street Cleaning.
The recommendations of the Central
Citizens' Association, read by Charles
R, Burr, opposing the sweeping of
streets of the city on Sunday, wcro re
turned to the committee with the In
structions that the matter be taken
up with the superintendent of street
cleaning. It was pointed out that
only a few men ar.e employed for Sun
day work. They are known as "emer
gency men." How many are employed
and what salaries are received Is not
known. The committee win investi
gate and report at the next meeting.
Until the Public utilities t,aiBi
... .n,.iftri Itn lie&rlnirs on the
valuation of the two electric railway
companies, W. McK. Clayton repott
ed, the question of constructing a
shed for passengers at Fourteenth
and B streets southwest will riot be
taken up. ,
'Tells of Ken Association.
Judge J. WUmer Latimer, of "the
Juvenile Court. In a 'ten-minute talk,
told the Federation of the objects of
the Juvenile Protective Association,
recently formed here. He said that
within a short time, a campaign to
raise $5,000 for the expenses of the
organization for two years, will be
started. The association b to assist
the Juvenile Court In "gathering
means of utilizing the desires of the
community toward helping in Juve
nile Court work." It is to organize
the efforts of tHe community toward
decreasing the delinquencies of chll
dren, and Is Intended to promote the
study of child problems, he said.
Resolutions indorsing the teachers
retirement and pension law were
passed, but the delegates, after de
bating for an hour tho desirability of
taking' "active steps for the repeal of
the Borland street assessment law,
failed to-reach a conclusion. An invi
tation was extended to Congressman
David J. Lewis of Maryland to ap
pear at the next meeting of the fed
eration and make a talk on his bill
now before Congress providing for
municipal ownership and .operation
of telephone lines In the District.
