And Perhapa Longer?The Valve Had
Been Repaired and Pumping Resumed
at 1 P. M. Monday, but
At 6 P. M. in the Blowing Out of a
Joint?Twenty Men Being Worked
on thr. Bepoirs.
Throughout the City Yesterday on
Account of the Shutting Off of
the Water Supply.
Early yesterday morning, when the
morning papers finally got to.press after
surmounting obstacles Innumerable.
It was the impression at the water
works Dumnlm; station that the numo
Ing of water would be resumed at 10 or
11 o'clock Monday morning. This prodiction
was not far from being realized.
Superintendent Oliver succeeding In
sturting the pumps again at 1 p. m., after
sixteen hours of continuous work In
putting In a new valve In the place of
the one that had broken so Inopportunely
Sunday night Just when the
making of the new connection at the
pumping station had been completed.
But the fiend that is pursuing thi
water works department of the city
government had still another trick up
its sleeve?In the shape of the blowing
out of a Joint In the new connection at
the pumping station. This occurred
Monday evening at 6 o'clock, and, o*
course, it was necessary to shut down
the pumps at once. At this time there
was very little more than the five feet
of water in the reservoir needed as a
reserve..for fire protection, and very
soon the outlet valve at the reservoir
had to be closed, thus shutting off the
city from a water supply for the third
time In two days.
Worked Faithfully.
Superintendent Oliver and his men
had worked faithfully for forty-eight
hours and were worn out In body and
distressed in mind, but the superintendent
and his assistants and workers
were equal to the emergency?everybody
Jumped in to do his best to surmount
this latest and most difficult obstacle,
and all Monday night and Tuesday
morning a gang of twenty men has
been at work taking out an immense
"y," and fitting tw'o new pieces of thirty
Inch pipe from the "y" to the valve.
This work requires great care and can
not be done in a hurry, and last night
it was stated that the pumping of water
into the reservoir could not be resumed
before noon to-day and possibly not until
tnmo ilmp tn-nicrht. A mnn r?rtn
aervatlvfc estimate Is that the work In
progress will not be completed until
Wednesday morning.
The supply of water furnished consumers
from 1 p. m. (the time of the
completion of the new valve) to 6 p. m.
(when the blow-out occurred), was not
bountiful at any time, the fact that
every consumer In town was eagerly
awaiting the arrival of water making
the consumption nearly If hot quite
equal to ths supply furnished to the
reservoir with both pumps at the station
Many Plants Shut Down.
The failure of the water supply has
had the effect of shutting down neaily
all the Industrial establishments In
town that depended upon the water
works for their supply for boilers. The
potteries, for Instance, were unable to
work yesterday; the electric light plant
~ had another nff-dav: th-? Irrtn
works shut down for the day; the
"Wheeling stamping works ran until 19
a. m. and then gave up; all the small
establishments that depended upon the
municipal plant for water were compelled
to shut down. Both the breweries,
the street railway lines, the Whltaker
Iron works and a number of other
manufacturing establishments having
their own water supply ran without
The Newspapers.
The newspapers, of coursc, had their
troubles again, and overcame thsm.
Iron mills may stop, electric plants may
lllcker, but the public never excuses
the non-apeparance of its favorite
newspaper, and naturally the four
Wheeling dallies strained even* nerve
to make their appearance on schedule

morning papers had a water,team constantly
at work bringing water from
the river for use In running the gas engine.".
The sccnes about town ri'sombled
thoH;? of Sunday?there were the same
rushes for springs nprl wells by women,
'children and, In many Instances, by the
men of families. At many homes cooking
was suspended and meals taken at
hotels and restaurants, and these establishments
all over town were entertaining
to their fullest capacity.
Teamsters bad :t very busy and profitable
day. Water void readily at
twenty-five cents a barrel In the morning
before the resumption of pumping.
Between 2 and C o'clock, when ther*
was a scant supply In the pipes, householders
took the precaution of ftlllng
barrels, buck??tn and even bath tubs
with the precious ufua.
The scene hist nlxht on Market and
other thoroughfares In the business district
was dark and gloomy. With the
electrical conipany's plant shut down
and majiy stores not provided with gas
k /
?Jio?t of the mercantile establishment*
were closed throughout the evening,
and their dhplay windows without Illumination.
The city electric light plant
suffered no shortage of water, and gave
an excellent street lighting service
throughoat the city.
