THE WATER PROPOSITION
On Tuesday Mr WITCHER JONES and as
sociates made a proposition to the city coun
cil to purchase outright the city water
works the canals and irrigating ditches
and the water supply The gentlemen pro
pose to pay cash down the price to be
mutually agreed upon They are also willing
to agree to maintain the waterworks and
canals in good order and repair to furnish
water to the citizens at a price not exceed
ing the present rates and as an argument
in favor of their proposition they say
This offer if accepted will secure to the
citizens an ample supply of pure water
without using the tax receipts and without
Increasing the personal water rents It
will result in the laying of all new pipes
and mains needed without expense to the
shutting property owners and it will im
mediately place in the treasury of the city
a large sum of money which can be ex
pended on needful municipal improve
ments
One is forced to admire the forwardness
or courage of the petitioners As there was
no expression of opinion it cannot be said
how the proposition struck the council
but we may believe that it sent a chill down
the spinal columns of Mayor SCOTT and as
sociates especially sq if the mayor and
councilmen have not forgotten that they
were elected on a platform pledging free
water to the citizens of Salt Lake To be
thus approached with a proposition to put
upon the people a perpetual tax for water
and that tax to be equal to the present
high rates must have caused the council
men to feel that at least the petitioners
placed no faith in Liberal promises
But as to the scheme itself THE HERALD
Is going to assume that there is first no
disposition on the part of the council to
sell and second to assert that a sale is
impossible and out of the question In the
first place the city council has no authority
or power to sell the water flowing into the
city That water belongs to the land
it goes with the land and cannot be
alienated from the land without the con
sent of the owners The council may reg
ulate the matter may direct as to the
ditches and conduits and may make regu
lations as to distribution but it cannot
dispose of it any more than it can dispose
of air and sunlight In each block there
are eight lots if the owners of seven of
these were to sell their water rights the
owner of the eighth could still maintain his
right to an eighth of the water belonging
to thut block and he could do this in spite
of the unanimous action of the city coun
cil Hence if Mr JOXES and associates
shall ever acquire the ownership of the
waters they will have to deal directly with i
the proprietors and not with the council
which latter does not occupy the position
of even an agent
The cry of the past few years has been
for more water and every year that cry I
grows louder and more earnest as the pop
ulation increases and the consumption is
greater It has been asserted many times
that the city has about reached its limit as
to territory and population until a better
supply of water has been obtained We
read in Mr JOXES petition that he pro
poses to obtain that better supply satisfy
ing the demand and we do not question his
ability to fulfill his promise in this respect
The water is to be had without doubt
there being enough flowing into the valley
t to make this the best watered city in
America The question is simply one of
money and we presume that Mr
Johns and his friends can readily solve
that just as many other individuals or
companies might do But if Mr JOXES
can get the water so also can the city and
who of the citizens will say that they would
prefer that the necessary fluid should be
controlled by individuals or a private com
pany rather than by the municipal corpora
tion Tnn HERALD professes to know
something of the disposition the senti
ment1 and the temper this community
and its knowledge in this respect inclines it
fo say that not 1 per cent of the people
would consent to the sale or surrender of
the citys water rights We believe we
can safely go further and assert that 99
per cent of the landowners would fight
to the bitter end the disposal of the water
to a private company Mr Joss propo
sition therefore may be regarded as re
jected with emphasis before it has been
so much as investigated by the council
As this community will testify THE
HERALD has over deemed it timely and in
season to urge the procuring of more water
Winter and summer this paper has pressed
and importuned tho council to do more than
it has done A dozen or fifteen years ago
when the thing was possible and within the
power of the corporation to accomplish we
begged thafca part or the whole of Big Cot
tonwood creek be purchased and no propo
sition or scheme since presented which gave
promise of increasing the water supply has
wanted the earnest advocacy of this news i
paper We realize that the growth the
tvelf areand the continued prosperity of Salt
Lake depend upon our ability to obtain
more water and we have believed and do
believe that tho corporation is able to do
what should be done in the premises If it
shall be thought otherwise if it shall
be shown that tho city is unequal
to the undertaking TEE HERALD will
i
not be adverse to granting to Mr JONES
or any other responsible persons the right
to lay mains in the streets and sell water
to all who care to purchase If companies
are willing to invest in the water business
let them come But the city must retain I
the water now owned and obtain more as I
soon as it can it must serve and supply to
every citizen as scon as possible and it I
must charge the lowest rata consistent
with the cost not of the water for that is
1 a already owned by the people but of the
service Individuals may if they care to j
r
tJ z
=
do so go into the business for money
making but they should understand that
they will compete with the corporation
which has no right to charge for water
and none to charge for service beyond the
actual cost of that service
THE TWO paving districts created by the
council on Tuesday evening comprise about
thirteen miles oC sidewalk exclusive of
some miles of street crossings Some ono
should remind the council that Rome was
not built in a day
DURING THE last Presidential campaign
II JOHN F PLUSIMEK a merchant of Brook
lyn was among the most active of the pro
tectionists He not only contributed
largely from his private purse but raised
considerable money among other mer
chants to help along the cause of HARRISON
He proclaimed that the election of CLEVE
LAND meant general disaster to the busi
ness industries of the country while ihe
election of HARRISON would be followed by
commercial prosperity and social happi
ness Well there has been a year of HAR
RISON and last week Merchant PLUMUKB
failed for a million There are some peo
ple who will persist in learning in no other
school than that of experience
IT is apparent from tho salary list adopted
Tuesday evening that the Liberalcity gov
ernment does not propose to be economical
in the matter of pay to itself the appoin
tive officers and employees Besides a con
siderable increase in tho number of so
called public servants the salaries have I
been raised fully 25 per cent Now do not
imagine that THE HERALD is going to criti
cise or find ult We have always thought
the city officials were not well paid Men
who faithfully and intelligently perform
the duties imposed upon the majority of the
city officers can command higher salaries
in private service than the corporation has
been paying If the new officials are equal
to the work and shall prove faitlAl they
will earn all the money that is pain them
EXDELEGATE GEORGE AINSLTE of Idaho
is in Washington saying mean things about
the Mormons and pleading for the passage
of the admission bill Itis said that he has
received 750 for this service the money
having been raised by Republican state
hood boomers The gentleman may try to
satisfy his conscience by saying to himself
that he is working as an attorney for a fee
but that will not do No fee can compen
sate a man for doing that which he does not
believe to bo right nor can any money
make ingratitude right It is not so long
ago that he or anybody else up there has
forgotten it that Mr GEORGE AINSLIEWOS
hand and glove with Mormons of Idaho
He used to visit them in their towns and
at their homes and solicit their votes
Twice they elected him to Congress where
he served them quite as faithfully as he
did his other constituents To now go
back on his former professions
and associations for a few paltry I
dollars and turn against the best
friends he ever had in the territory
shows neither gratitude nor political wis
dom for those he abuses causelessly will
necessarily be alienated for all time while
those who use him now cannot respect
him THE HERALD has liked Mr AINSLIE
and it regrets the mistake that he is mak
ing As the years roll round and he finds
himself standing alone he will realize that
he committed the error of his life when he
wasnt true to himself and without cause
turned against those who had been his
honest conscientious and true friends
better friends in fact than he was to him

IT is rumored that the brickmakers con =
template raising the price of their wares
for this season For their own sakes we
would advise them to act cautiously in this
matter and to not take advantage of the
immediate necessities of builders So far
as we are aware there was no complaint
last year that the price of bricks was too
low If the cost of making them shall be
no more this year than last what justifica
tion will the manufacturers have for charg
ing more It may be suggested that there
is danger in this to the brick men them
selves High prices would certainly in
duce the establishment of new plants end
competition might become so active
that brickmaking would be anything
but profitable Besides there are rail
roads entering this city and their mana
gers might take it into their heads that it
would put money into their treasuries to
haul brick at a very low rate This is also
a peculiar community in some respects If
the impression is formed that an improper
advantage is being taken of it it does not
readily forget the wrong but is very apt
to revenge itself THE HERALD is in favor
of fair prices for products material and
wages but it doesnt Relieve in extortion
THERE is a bill in the New York legisla
ture to make it a criminal offense to sen d a
letter or postal to any person with the
intent to ca9e him annoyance Its pas
sage will put a stop to dunning letters and
the solicitation of charity by mail
SOME OF the telephone companys em
ployees propose to administer to the com
pany a mild dose of the medicine which the
company is giving to the public in such a
heavy dose The employees referred to
who by the way are not paid wages equal
to those allowed to other mechanics ask
for an increase of 20 per cent or from
250 to x3 per day The telephone people
who were already charging the public an
exorbitant price for service did not hesi
tate to increase the tax 33 > per cent but
when their poor laborers ask for living
wages the reasonable request is denied
and the men go outon strike It will not
help the telephone company in its present
contest with the public to let it be known
that while demanding outrageous pay for
itself it grinds the poor workingman down
to the last nickel The sympathies of the
people will all bo with the strikers as
against the monopoly
IT is evident that the telephone company
expects those who ordered out the instru
ments rather than submit to the exorbi
tant increase of rates to weaken and re
tain the phones We say this is the ex
pectation otherwise the company proposes
to throw good money away for the sake of
maintaining its position There are in
round numbers 550 telephones which at
SCO a year the old rate would yield a rev
enue of 33000 Say 150 of these have been
ordered out leaving 400 which will
pay 32000 a year at SO the new rate or
put it in this waythe company gets SOOO
additional from the 400 by increasing the
rental 20 and loses 9000 by the taking
out of the 150 instruments Yet it is plain
that the company expects to force the pro
testants back into line for the telephone
people are not of tho kind to throw
money
away Wo wonder if they will be disap
pointed
