The Beat WbMlloi can dot
The fact hu already been published Uut '
;he Bond of Water Works Trnatees delirea
tollncreaae the reservoir capacity of '
Jiis city, which lor years has been very
poor and inaafficient. Those who have (
aeen made acquainted with the views ot <
*i? U?e?il onH hnctn ihnvn how call .
Ixed financially it ia to make this needed
improvement, have been impreeeed with j
the practicability of the contemplated
work, and alio the necoseity ol that or
nmething else being done noon. A cue
lul atudy of the situation convinces moet j
people that the Board's plan 1a by odda
the moet feaalble and in all respects the (
It mnst be said of the Board that It did
not take the beat plan to present the situation
before Gonncil and ask its authority '
to do the work. It called in to meot with :
it the Conncil Committee on Water Works, :
a committee as well made npas any of the ;
committees, bnt compoeed of gentlemen !
who are almost wholly nnacqnamted with ;
the workings of the Board, tbe condition
of lta finances or the management ol the
works; a committee that had only met
with tbe Board once before?last year
when the estimate for the appropriation
ordinance was made np. Tbe members of <
ths Board told this committee what it desired
to do, and how well fixed it was to
do it, and showod that it was the beet
plan to eecnre a better water supply in
every respect.
The committee was in favor of tbe improvement,
and the following night sent
in to Conncil a recommendation that
$50,000 be appropriated for tbe work.
There were no other figures given nor any
plan outlined.
The matter came up lu tho Second
Branch, and it so happened that there was
no member of the committee present able
to impart the interesting facts and figures
that the Board had given tbe committee
tbe night beforo. Tbe result was that the
vaxAmmandslInn iron irnrtolrorf nhnnt In a
slip-shod manner and finally referred to ,
the Finance Committee.
There is reason to believe that had the i
Board reported direct to Council, the re- ?
suit would have been different. At any
rate the ignorance of the manner in which ,
the Board's finances are need, that some <
of the members displayed, might have
been prevented. I
Under tho legislation act that changed
the city chartor and put the manage
ment of the works ' in the hands j
of a Board, tho revenues of the t
works can bo used only lor their maintenance,
except a certain enm, which must
be set aside yearly for the interest on and
reduction of loans made in the past, and
which were made partly for the purpose
of .improving the works and its system of
mainB. Those loans were made in the
days when the revenues from the
works were squandered on streets,
under the old regime?before there
were boards or a restraining ordinance.
That such was the case?the reserving
of the revenues of the works for its use
solely, oppears to have been lost eight of
by Councilman who debated the recommendation.
The recommendation coming as it did
from tho committee seemed to give them
the idea that tho improvement would have
to be paid for out of tho general treasury,
or that tho revenues from the works went
into that treasury, and they harped away
about whether the city could afford the I
improvement, and finally referred the
matter to the Financial Committee. It
presumably will ascertain whother the
Board knows what it is about. .
The Board thinks it does know what it 1
wants, what it baa and what it is about.
The figures given to tho committee by the
Board were aA follows: On hand January
1, 1888, $34,500; estimated receipts for
1888, $01,000; total estimated revenuo for
1888, about $95,000.
Estimated expenses?for & new reservoir,
$50,000; expense of conducting the
wnrkn. SIS (MX): for lontiP. $15,680: total
estimated expenses, $83,080, leaving a bal- '
anceot tbe end ot tho year of $11,820. '
Thcso figures demonstrate clearly that '
the Board, acting for the city, can easily '
ifford tho improvement. The Board de- 1
sired immediate action in order that it 1
might contract for the work soon, bo as to f
have it all completed by early in the fall. 1
As it is now it will probably not be considered
by the Finance Committee till it
meels to make np its annual appropriation (
ordinance, and by thu time Council i
reaches it again a month or Biz weeks will 'I
have elapsed. ;When Council is throngb, (
spring will be well advanced, and the work, t
if allowed, will not be finished till 1
ate in the fall. In case the work is not q
illowod about $i),000 in repairs will have t
0 be put on the old basin. The old basin ::
lolds but 720,000 gallons. Tbe proposed a
lew one will hold 3,000,000 gallons, c
Rtlaed (10 feet above the present one s
ivery house in tbe city would be supplied t
?ith water. The idea is to have one basin fi
>f 1,000,000 gallons capacity to be used as d
1 settling buin, the water to flow down an r
ncline from it into the 2,000,000 gallons Ii
listributing basin; a belter quality of
vater would thus be obtained.
Another argument used by some people *
.gainst the improvement is that in order f
osave this city from pestilence and death ?
he pumping elation muat be removed to
hs Mister islands, about two miles above ..
he city. This is a bobby some people
re riding under whip and spur. There is ,
m record in tbe ofiice of tbe Board an 7
laborate report made by a promi- i
lent Cincinnati scientific chem- ?
st. Tbe Board recently sent to
ilm a aample of water from the basin, one
aken from the Island bar and one taken
it the Sisters. He analysed these and
lis rsport shows the very smallest degree
if difference between them aa regards the
ilbumonoids In the three samples; and ir
m other points the difference is very n
light; practically the water from one
ample was as good as the other except- oi
ng that from the Island bar. F
To remove the pumping station to tbe
Hatem and to hnilu thn norpRxnrv
rould require gn outlay of over half a f.
Dlllion. This would require an Issuance
if bonda that it would take years to pay,
md while they were running it is certain B
here wonld be no reduction in water ?
axes, and what wonld bo gained by this
ntlgy for "pore" water ? Nothing?for the "
rateis,as shown by the report referred to,
re the same. And how long will it be ci
iefore tbis valley between here and
Iteubenville, the locality about the Bia- 'c
era Included, la one vast habitation and b
aannfactnring commnnity for which the
)hio river as now, will be the natural w
ewer? The time is not long, judging is
rom what has sprung up In the past few w
ears. tl
The city water works aa regards tho
qnipment of a pumping station Is par j,
xcellence; all that Is required is a safe g)
nd adequate reservoir capacity. The h,
loard names $50,000 for the work; it be- th
eves it can be dono for $40,000 or less, Wi
nt desires to Me on the safe aide. A h<
igh service reaervolrbuilt, reduced water

las Protestantism rejected the doctrine
>! the real presence of Christ's body and
)lood in the Holy Communion?"
In hie introduction, the Bishop dwelt
>n the many discordant sects into which
Protestant Christianity was cat np, and
:haracterized the absence ol even doctrilal
nnity aa a scandal to the infidel at
lome and to the heathen abroad. The
esult of the so-cslled Reformation, eo
nanifestly in opposition to tho dearest
fish of the Savionr'a eacred heart, is in
tself quite sufficient to prove that it could
iot be the work of tiod. Were its authors
ustified in their revolt against the old
shurch? How few ever trouble themlelves
to ascertain. It is said and generilly
believed by Protestants that the
purpose of that uprising against the Italian
Catholic Church was to reform tho
:hnrcb of Christ and purify it from many
)rroneous doctrines, etc, etc. Bat is it
aot a notorious fact that, at first, abuses
inly in matters of discipline wero denounced,
and the church's doctrines were
not assailed 7
Now-a (lays it is not an uncommon
tiling to see quite a long list of uappoeed
innovations in matters of doctrine, against
*hich Luther ia represented aa vigorously
protesting In this list, ninoty-nine out of
ft hundred will pnt the Catholic doctrine
if the corporal presence of Christ in the
Encharist Most Protestants in our day
&re firmly convinced that this Popish superstitution
(as they aro wont to brand
it) was one of the most egregious errors
which the glorious Information was divinely
commissioned to destroy. Did
Martin Luther, who ia ever lauded as the
leader of the Reformation, ao think?
Far from it. He continued all his lite to
aphold in the strongest manner the doctrine
of the presence in the Lord's supper
of the very fieali and blood of Jeeos
Jbrist. Against those who denied the
Icctrine, he was as bitter, as violent, as
:oarse in his denunciations as against the
Panttu fhommlvai In hi* "I.lflln
Jatechiam," written only two yeara biore.
his death, he atylea the adherente
)f Zainglins, who admitted a mero figuraive
preeence of Ohriat'a body and blood
n the Sappor, "madmen, blasphemers,
niaerable wretches, damned souls for
ivhom it is no longer lawful to pray."
rost ono year before ho died, he called the
Eucharist, "The adorable eacrament,"?
in expression that greatly incensed C'alrin.
The Biohop reiorred to the authorized
itandard of the Lutherans, the Coufealion
of Augsbnrg, in which, among the
ibuses charged agftinat the Church of
Home, no mention is made of this doc*
rine; nay, it teaches expressly the real
resence of the body of Christ in the Lord's
sapper, aud profeseee the greatest reverence
for the Maeo. But tho wording of
hia confession was not explicit enough
or Luther, and a few years later, in ttoe
7onfesaion of Smaicald, these expressions
vere employ fid: "We believe that the
>read and wine are the true body and
>lood of Christ, and are given to and revived
by, not only pious Christians, but
ilso by the impions." Indeed, Luther
onnd one of his chiefest pleasures in the
Jitter enmity ho over cherished against
he opponents of the doctrine of the real
>reeence. For fifty years and more, his ,
riews continued to be entertained by the
raat majority of Protestants. But the
rery reverse is true to-day. Few Protesting
now believe in the corporal
iresenco of Christ in the Lord's
upper. This belief is regarded ae
teculiarly distinctive of the Catholic
Jhurch. Tho question undor discussion
s: "Whv has Protestantism rejected tbls
loctrino?" Martin Luther is constantly
ulogized as! another Moaeo divinely raised
ip to lead God'a people out of tha darkless
of Popish superstitions, and as a
tad-gifted messenger eont to purify the
Jhurch of Christ and purge it of the erors
engrafted on the Goepel-trutba. And
et the great majority of his admirers in
ur age are forced to acknowledge that
*od, who gave him hia extraordinary
niasion to reform Hia Church, pormitted
iim to hold and teach and propagate moot '
ealously one of tho grossest of all Rome's \
apposed errors; or that they themselves <
lave flung aside a doctrine which, in 1
iUther's opinion, is one of the most clear*
7 revealed truths o! the New Testament ,
issuredly this is a strange alternative.
Perhaps, said the Btahop, the reason for <
liia chango of belief may be found in the
nhappy tendency to rationalism which 1
'rotestantiam foster*. But if tho doctrine J
f the real presence ij rejected bpcanae ,,
sason cannot comprehend (it, other doc* o
inesas yet acknowledged as essential to f
tiristianity must aharo the samo fate.
The second lecture, to be delivered at 3
. m. next Sunday, will bu devoted to a
lorough development of the Catholic
leching concerning tho real presence,
ad to an exposition of some of the theo* c
es advocated by those who have imugned
the church's teaching.
