MECHANICAL FILTRATION Aldermen Adopt Committee's Re- port Recommending It. A Miicli-IllsciiKscd Question Seems to He Scttlrd nt l.nM DrimBlsIt' Fifth Clnts License fixed lit Twenty-I'lvc Hollars. The board of aldermen met last evening and after a prolonged discussion turned down n resolution providing for the em- nlovment of a disinterested consulting en- , glneer to prepare two sett of plans and ' specifications, one sot for tho erection if I a slow finnd nitration plant and one for l 1 m"cban.cal plunt. Tho board also voted j to accept the majority report of thn filtra tion committee, previously submitted, rev ommendlng the Installation of a mechan ical filter; fixed the feo for druggists' licences nt 2f per annum; accepted and adopted salary nnd other recommenda tions received Horn the board of health eomirlrsioners; nnd transacted a consid erable amount of routine business. All .if tile members were present FILTRATION AGAIN. The meeting first listened to tho reading of the reHrt of Whipple & H.iren recom mending slow Mind filtration. Thin report was printed In full In tho Free Press of January 2. ID0", but had never been before the board. Thn resolution which occasioned tho pro longed nnd at tlinos heatisl discussion was introduce ! by Alderman Russell nnd win as follows: "Resolved, That the mayor, he and hereby Is Interacted to employ a t competent and disinterested eotisultliu , engineer .it tho ejpenso of tho city to In- , vestlgate and report fnr tho Information ! of the city council as to tho kind of tiller best adnpted to the needs of tho city of t Darlington, also to prepare In dupllcnlu. 1 two rets of plans and specifications one for the erection of a sand fl'trntlon plant and tho other for a mechanlc.il plant, each of Mild plants to have a c.ipnc!t of two millions (I,li),W.i) gallons of water dallv and to deliver said plans and specifica tions to the board of aldermen at the- cii' llet possible date." Alderman Kidder was promptly on 'lis fret to say that he thought the question of i uiirannn was seiiu u at ino cny moeuog t n held March '.'0 of this year when tho cltl- fj zons votiil for a mechanical filter, lie lj asked whether the resolution was Intro- . H duccd nt the Instance of some society whose members might be. advocating the passage of t.he resolution for a purpose. Hefore he ceased speaking Alderman Kid der was called to order by President Har bor for indulging in personalities. Alderman Courtney said it was time to bring tho matter to a head and that It should be settled at tho meeting then m session. Alderman Russell said It ought to be be neath tho dignity of a member of the board to Imply that members in any or ganization had ulterior motives In asking for plans nnd specifications of tho two kinds of niter. Mr. Russell said the board would havo to have such Information from "mill' disinterested source before the members could know wheie they stand. He said the board is responsible for the Installation of the plant and cannot dele gate Its powers. Ho called for an ayu and nay vote on the resolution. At this Juncture Mayor Hlgelow nd dressed the board, saying that four mem bers of the special committee on nitra tion had already resigned and refused to hao anything more to do with the matter. He earnestly supported the re solution, saying that Its object was sole, ly to bring beforo the board n statement of the merits of each of the lllter pro position". The object was not in any way to usurp the power of the special com mittee but simply to get definite in formation before the board, Tho mayor said If such a resolution worn voted down such action was an expression by those favoring mechanical 111' ration that they did not dare to have a detlnltn Statement of tho respective merits of the two sys tem" submitted side by side. Alderman Murphy asked that ex-Mayor Hurko be heard on the question. Mr. Hurke said investigations made during the past two years on the water question had already cost the city about J1.000. Whipple & Hazen's report, he said, Is a definite stntement nnd cost tho city about $."(!. He said the plans and speci fications called for In the resolution would cost the city i3,(W) and that then we shouldn't know any more about the question than wo do now. Tn reply to Mr. Hurke, Mayor Higclnw said the former disagreed with Whipple & Hazen on some of the points at Issue, saying that he (Hurke) was in the right. This the mayor thought was conclusive evidence that the questions should bo submitted to disinterested experts for de finite information on both sides. In response to n request from Alder man Stone for an opinion, J. W. Gnodell said he wns convinced that either type of plant would give equally good water. He thought the mechanical plant the more economical nnd he would be patls tled it one were Installed. RESOLUTION IvOST ON TI K. The aye and nay vote wns ngaln called for and taken on the passage of the re folutlou. 'Pile measure wan lost on n tie. Those voting aye were Aldermen Pease, Pino, Russell, Clarke, TJarber and Hom bard. Thoso voting nay were Aldermen Kidder, Courtney, Dion, Mitchell, Mur phy and Stone. On motion of Alderman Murphy the report of the majority of tho special committee, recommending mechanle-al filtration, was nccepted and adopted. HHALTH HOARD HF.COMMENDA TIONS.
