Ill take up his leMdeuce In Washington. l'eople in tlie upper part nl tlie city com plain or the meagie water supply lu their neighbor hood. Tneie Is mi need lor this, lioivevei. Congress, on the 27th of May nf last year, passed an ait to In cieaso the water supply of Iho ilty of Washington, audappiopiUleil over ;l, 600,000 foi the toiistrue tlonornuew reservoir neii the Soldleis Home, and aqueduct cuuuei Hon between It and Iho great teser volr at iluorgetoivn. Ttio work necessary to ac complish the objector this bill Is nut even negiiu. Therea-unofthlsllesln 11. d fact Ib-t Capt. llnxle, who has charge cf Iho engineer work or the District, became posses-ed one day uf an absurd idea. This Idea bo lias followed nut Sixth street, aud he has pur sued ll from the extremity or Sixth street down luto thebowels or the earth to Mia depth or eighty-two feet. At ono of Hoile's friends said Iho other day, "lloilo has gone Into this hole eveiy day ror Ihe last year and pulled Hie hula In .irter him." Last week the Captain round water. This iinoxpecled discovery or what the Captain was not searching for came near drowning this faithful but misguided ulllcer, and It Is expected, or at least hoped, that the absurd Idea for which tho Captain was groping Las beeu drowned at the bottom or the seuentj-tnofeetof watei new standing In bis deep pit. lor what has the I aptaln been digging during thelast year" Hock, Is the answer. Most people, orralbei most engineers, would bo content to follow tliogenetal plauor tLo existing water wnrU and to ronslriictanaiueductoverprouud from Georgetown tn the uevi reservoir. Upon this acqueduct could have been built a handsome load-way, making an elegant drlvofiom tho Soldiers' Homo to George town. This work could have been dono rapidly and economically, in two years the entire work could have been completed. Instead of this common sense plan, tho erratic Captain has had an Idea, which Isembracod In tho following plan. This Istodlg down below tho surfaro near the site of tho new reservoir until boJ-rock Is reached. Then tho klan Is to tunnel through the rod. to Georgetown. There lsnoprovlslo.1 made for the possibility of Ibis bed of rock giving out before Georgetown Is reached. The tunneling may hare to go to the depth nthalfa mile, and tt may have to deflect en as tn take In Baltimore. Then with a tunnel under ground the pressure from tho water above would certainly burst It at somo weak or expose, I point. Tho labor and expenso Involved In Hits underground-tunnel Idea Is simply enormous. It Is a groping l.l the dark which will probably Involve millions. Tho pitiful character of the experiment as thus farrnuiliirtod gives the following lesulti Nearly a year baa been given up, Willi nu expenditure of rioin fifty to a hundred dollais a day, and the only thing to show for It Is a pit flllcd with water.
