Officials to Not Offer the Owens
River Bonds for Sale
Until Feb. 1
Although tho Now York bond syndl
cata is showing a disposition to treat
with the <it>- mi almost any Ugms tho
city chooses to propoae, thara will !.><•
no Owona river bonds sold until Peb
ruary I, 1811. This fact was eatabll
beyond question liist night, when tin
council promptly lilcd the commum- j
cation of A. W. Hullard, thfc coast rep- 1
reientatlve of the bond syndicate,]
stating that ho had laid the city's
proposition before his employers. The
council Instructed W. J. Washburn,
Chairman of the finance committee, to ,
notify Mr. Bullard that no further ac
tion will be taken.
Coundlmen Wa.shburn and Stewart j
asked to be excused from voting On
this matter and Gregory voted "no, '
but tho other members of the council
agreed to stop all negotiations for the
sale of more bonds until February 1
when tho syndicate must say whether
or not it will exercise its option, and
pay the city SSlfi.""'' every two months.
Councilman Betkouski stated that

duct. The completion of the aqueduct
ahead of time meant an actual saving

arid every day that was saved in the
work meant a saving of $1000 in the

in the fixed charges. But now it is

give the city plenty of time to go into

There is now no strike on the aque

the tunnals to rush the job as fast
as is desirable. Two shifts each are
working at north and south portals
of the Elizabeth Lake tunnel and tho
smaller tunnels are fully manned. The
aqueduct is going along about as fast
as it did In the palmiest times and the
money question is not bothering the
builders. They are content to wait
until February 1 when all the vex

settled definitely.
