Section threo proposed that the crown of tho present concreto flume be removed, and an ordinance sent to tho Council appropriating $50,000 for lhe construction of a metal plpe llne from the settling basln to tbe Pump Mouse, proposing to iay the plpe llne on the foundatlon formed by the con? crete base. Aiderman Grundy. of the subcom? mittee, while tndorslng all of the other provlslons of the report. dissented from thls section, saying that he was not opposed to the erectlon of a steel plpe llne. If that proves necessary, but thnt he would prefer to hear from the Clty's experts, provided for in section two, before acting on this olause. Chairman Mills urged Immediate ac? tion, clalmlng that the concrete flume was an utter wreck. that tne ?egal pro cesses of recovery would be slow, that tho clty was standlng In Interest charges and other outlays an expense of $2,000 a month for the settling basln, and that the citlzens were in Urgent nted of clear water.

Clty Attorney Pollard. who evldently antlclpates a battle for the clty's rlghts. and ls wllling to yleld no point which might be used by the other side, said the city should under no clrcumstances dlsmantle the flume-until every inch has been tested. "Aa I understand it," said Mr. Pol? lard, "only portions have so far been tested, and ln each case havo failed. The experts whlch lt ls proposed to pmploy, should test every inch of the flume. lt may be that the flrst 1,000 fe6t is good, and should be accepted. nr It may be that the clty should sue to recover the whole amount pald the Crouse Company." After further debate section three was rejected, and In Its place a new section three was adopted, asklng the Council to allow tho use of certain funds to the credlt of the settling basln account for the expenses of employing the two expert engineers and for the cost of a thorough test of every pnrt of the flumeT As amended, the report waa adopted as a whole. As an entlrely dlstinct proposltlon from the above, Councilman Cutchlns Velntroduced a resolutlon looking to an Investigatlon of the construction ol the flume. Chairman Mills suggested 'that as several of tho present mem? bers of the Water Commlttee had been nn the old Water Commlttee, and were inore or less associated ln the work. the Investigatlon should be by the Council, and not by tho Water Com? mlttee.
