Tho Tribune, hypocritically iiaaertlns that

Spavlnuw bonds" thart It does, Immediately
beslna to hurp on u temporary aupply of water
from Shell creek pending Hie arrival of Spavl

Wc wonder' If tho Tribune knows tli'at un
der date of November !S, 1931, Charles Page
wrote a letter lo the Hpnvlnaw campaign com
mittee In which he frankly confessed that he
did not have a sufficient supply of water In
Shell crtck for ''V.laa and only eought to all
partial supply nf water to the city? The ex

tnvlw of this irank admission on the pnrt

The World had hped thai the period of acrl.

auhatantlal perlml of tlnte. The World had
hoped that the magnitude of Tueaday'a victory
would raltaa even tht Tribune to fall In atap

appeara to have been without reaeon. Hi It

in the flrrt place, had Tulan connected with
Hlielt creek when the prnpoaltlon for It jo do
ao wa flrit Mitimlttcil, Ifla ontlre auply of
available water would long ago have been "x
haunted and Tulaa would bn back on Arknneao
river and the bottle. It would have been back
on the Nrkniieaa and the bottle JO daya ago.
In the Mcond place, the aupply of water now
behind the Shell crash ilnm la Mow the point
which llarrtow A Harlo declare to be the dan
ger point lit thtdr report lo the merchanta'
water hoard. Which tneana that there la not it
drop of witter behind Iho Hholl creek dam to

would recommend lo tho city.
In thn third placo. tho water in Hholl creek
nowor any waler that will ever bo Impounded
behind the dam la totally Unfit for drinking
purpnaei nnd would never be uaed for drlnkliiR
purpoaea by any man or woman able to pur
ohaen other water. Thn only advantage Hholl
creek wnter hna over Arknnana river water la
fmin.l In tho fact that It is oft and would
therefore be hotter ndnpled to boiler use. It
would not tako Tulm off the bottlo and no
one tindetalnnda thla better than the proprie

Tho waler now Impounded behind the Hholl
Creek dam la three feet lower than It waa

.mark la illatlncl on the banka nnd on the dam.
Yet not a gallon line 'been 'drawn from behind
th'o dam. Where ha It boiio?
' And the wnter now there ahowa for Itaclf In

engaga In a lamlrovciny concerning thla mat

view the p,iylonl condition" for youraelf, and
then pillory tho Individual who propoaea
' to you that you tftko on formidable nUdltlo.ial
'.financial obligations to purchaae n partial aup
ply of thla water.
We e.iy again, Iho water board would havo
carped the acorn of thla community had It made
a contract for Shell creek water even on tho
trrma It proposed to rag". Hod It done ao, ami
eubniltted tho contract to tho people for ap
proval, ns the law rcqulrce, enbl contract would
have been repudiated. Wo any now, that
ahould a contract be made and aubmltlcd to tho
people of Tulaa, they would Inform themaelvna
doncernlng Shell creek condltlona nnd would
reject tho contract by ubitantlntly the annio
majority they gave for Hpavlnuw.
Wo admit that If there waa an adeo.uate aup

why Titian nnjoya tha reputation of being the
