METER REUT WAS
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
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
. 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
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
