RICHMOND, iNO, BiC B P AIX ABIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM. VOI- XXXV. NO. 343. RICHMOND. IN D.. TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 18, 1910. t SINGLE COPY 3 CENTS. MOM METER REUT WAS FRUITFUL TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION Water Works Question Reop ened by Council, School Board Roasted for Allowing . Kids on Streets, EXPRESS WAGON PLACE TALKED ABOUT AGAIN Councilman Von Pcin Denoun ces Water Meter Rental and Thinks the Public Should Be informed. While there was no business of great importance before the city coun cil at its meeting Monday night, there was some discussion of live topics that proved a mighty good substitute. The meter rent charged by the water works company was again given a round and the company was charged with holding up the cltisens on this proposition; the school board was given a lively round for its rule in re gard to the admission of the children to the school yards, and its alleged cant courtesy shown the council, and the placing of express wagons about the court house led to the develop ment of a diversity of views and the discovery that the ' proposition will meet with determined opposition from certain sources. Matt Von Pein started the water 'works discussion anew, . remarking that he considered It the proper thing to keep agitating the subject and let the) people be Informed as to what the situation la so that Intelligent action ean be taken when the time for action comes. The discussion was a little personal with Mr. Von Pein be cause it was only recently that he peJJ kla water bill of $20 of which " mmwmm- m i .i . u.a k. r. cards this aster rent proposition as a. nlais. and sura hold nn. Mr. Von Pels thinks It would be far better for the company to place the meter rent at a lee figure so that It would not work a hardship on the consumer, and to keep the good will of the people, than to kill the good goose that lays the golden egg,. for In his judgment this la what It amounts to, It the good will of the people Is lost. Hae the City by the Neck? An Impression has gone out that the company has the city by the neck, but Mr. Von Pein is not Inclined to think so. lie believes .there will be found a way of escape through some of the plans Suggested and that It is possible the city may erect a water works plant of Ita own. In the mat ter of the rates for water, they are , held to be reasonable enough but the Justice of charging $3 rent a year on an investment oi f or as aoes not look good to Mr. Von Pein or to other mwbw m ws v vvvuviif s w mw uiv covered. Apparently they are sim ply trying to abide In patience until they can get a "crack" at the meter rent with the hope of putting it out of commission. . Mayor Zimmerman has long favored a municipal water works plant and he has not wholly abandoned hope In this regard. He admits the possibility of the company having a 1 perpetual franchise, but he Is pretty sure It has no perpetual hold on the patronage of the city Itself, and herein may lie the salvation of the situation. Councilman Williams, chairman of me puoiio acnooi, committee, reported that his committee had called on the school board In regard to the admis sion of children to the school yards earlier than Is the custom and found the board unwilling to change the rule which has been effective for years. The board holds that It Is not advisa ble for the children to come to the schools too early and has the rule in an effort to have some regular time for their appearance and to have them under proper control. The council has been led to believe that It would be far better to admit the children to the school yard, where they would engage In harmless play, than to have them congregate In other yards to the annoyance of property holders or In business houses near by when the weather Is disagreeable. One member of council told of frequently finding a dosen or more children camped In a corner grocery nearly every morning during the cold weather, waiting until the time arrived that they could go Into the school yard and the school building. Think It Dud Wrena. Mayor Zimmerman believes the school board Is dead wrong In Its atti tude, that the rule la a bad one and that It ought to be changed, and he took especial pains Is saying so. He wants the board to .know just what the eentlmett Is. In his talk to the council he pronounced the rule as an unjust and uncharitable one to the children, causing them unnecessary suffering and proving a detriment to their health. He takes the position that, the ground ' about the school buildings are meant for. play purposes and that If the children are to have torn ae or little use of it, the ground (Continued on Par. Ten.)
