'' SEWERAGE "Citizen" Propounds Conundrums. a Few Wants to Know Something About Contract Price. Sewerage Question is Becoming a Serious One Cost Threatens to Exceed Expectations of Anyone. To tht Editor of The Oreenvlll. Timoai In a letter published some time ago by Alexander Potter, engineer of the Greenville sewer, now under construc tion, It was stated that the sewerage would be completed by March 1. It is March 19, and we seem to be farther from completion than we . were eight months ago. It is reported that it is not-necessary to abandon the maic sewer from O'Hea street along north Broadway to the Fish Lake road and east along the Fish Lake road to the waterworks a distance of about 3000 feet of our largest and most expensive main sewer, which owing to a defective design has been crushed in. I also understand that it is contemDlated to use an iron pipe for this distance, and use a syphon as a temporary measure to pump it into our $10,000 reservoir by an overland route A few pertinent questions to the point I would like to have answered fully. and without equivocation. 1st. What was the original estimated cost-of the completed system as furnish ed by the engineer? , - . - 2nd. Under the contract when was it to be completed? 3rd. Wht has been expended to date? We understand many thousands of dollars iq excess of what we voted for their construction, mainly $05,000. 4th. What ie. the estimated cost to complete the system if it can ever be completed on the plan that is now be ing pursued? ' The grade line M about eight feet too deep and the sewt r pipe slaking in the quick sand; house con nections crushing rinto the main sewer aa anybody can see, who has - watched the dally -and nightly, use of two steam pumps to try and regain the .mains waerAr0k6? 4yT- Wy-v 5th. What Is the probable cost of tola overland -route by means of a sy phon and Iron pipe from O'Hea to the sewage, receptacle? If t is lis possible to regain the sew, era, how then Is It possible to dig a re' eeptacie lower than the main is now, and that io the face of a rising river? , otb. Where has this extra money that has been expended come from. 185,000 in ' loans were voted and that was f6f sew rage? By what authority has there been more spent and where did It come from? If the authorities power to borrow money for sew rage, It was unnecessary W put It to a vote to Issue the money.' - Now. the question I would like to sub mit to the people is that a halt be call ed, nd examination made as to Wheth er this experiment is capable of being made a success at any price? Has not enough of money been spent to demonstrate the fact that we cannot successfully construct a main sewer at the depth that U it now in quick sand? Arc You a Member of Order of Buffalos?

The Greenville Fire Dopartme.it du ring the last ten days, has had a run for its money. More than nine alarms have been sent In calling out the de partment, but out of the number only one or two serious fires have resulted. Last Sunday night two houses near the court house occupied by colored people were burned, and Moday afternoon the large and roomy residence of Mr. I.

Dear Father: First let me tell you about the Inauguration, for that is the thing foremost In the minds of Wash ingtonlans at tfiis time. I can't begin to describe it all to you for it was too grand and datzllng for description. The Inauguration took place Monday but the city began to fill up five days previous, although the crowd reached its climax oh Monday. I never saw so many people gathered together In all my life. Of course you can get some idea from the papers, but it cannot be fully appreciated unless you witness it personally. . Saturday evening, the 2nd, I went down to see th decorations on Penn sylvania avenua, the route of the great parade, and suft a grand and inspiring one seldom sees. The entire length of the street from the treasury to the capitol was one floating mass of red, white and j'.ue bunting, the stores telegraph poles, and trees being liter ally covered with It. There were thousands of flags in evidince and countless pictures of McKlnley and Roosevelt. ' All conceivable space was used by the committee for grand stands, the money received from the sale of seats being used to partially defray the expenses of the inaugura tion. The stands were gorgeously decorated. All stores fronting on the avenue erected stands which extended out over the walk. Some windows' on and people had then gathered In the open space in front of the caplto1. Near twelve Roosevelt arrived in a closed carriage and went Immediately to the senate. He was unaccompa nied. In a few minutes came McKln ley with Senator Banna in an open carriage, escorted by the Governor's Island, (Jf. Y.) band, and troop "A," of Cleveland, the famous "Black Horsi squadron." He went at once to tht senate, where the vice president was sworn in in the preseuce of a distin guished party shortly before noon. The party then formed to march to the Inaugural stand. Mrs. McKlnley, lean'ng on the arm of Gen. Corbin. first came out of the east entrance and marched down through the crowd to the covered part of the stand from which the president was to speak. A gentle ralu was falling, but with wifely pride she walked with bared head. Then came the diplomats, the governor general of Canada, followed by the senate and house, army and navy officials, and other high digni taries. At last McKlnley, with Miles, Dewey and the supreme Court, ap peared, and the long pent-up enthu siasm of the thousands broke loose, resulting in a grand ovation for a man very evidently dear to the hearts ol his countrymen. He laid his hand upon the open Bible as Justice Fuller administered the oath, and then de livered bis address. He is a forceful and Impressive speaker, and has a very S 'Are yon a member of the Order i f the Buffaloes?

That night the inaugural ball took place in the im mense oourt of the pension office, and was opened by President and Mrs. McKlnley. It is said to have been the most gorgeous social event In our his tory, and the mingling of bright uni forms, handsome toilts, beautiful wo men and chlvalrlo men, must have presented a very fascinating picture. Tuesday night I attended the grand concert given by the Marine band in the roem utilized for the ball of the previous night, and the decorations beggar description. I never saw such a profusion of flowers and incandescent lights. It looked like the place had been turned into a forest with millions of twinkling stars. The president's flag made of electric lights, was very pretty. I send you a dance program and official souvenier. 1 fire-works display took place Tues day night, but was about the same as last year at the Shrlners, Altogether the Inauguration was a grand and in teresting scene, .with many great les sons and incentives to the attainment of the higher things. It leaves an in- pression, and arouses new patriotism, and interest In our country. It does one good to note the faces and features of the great crowd. It is a great event in the nation's history, as well as in the lives of those of us who dally witness the greatness of our coun try and the democratic simplicity of its government.
