The Bell. Water Company will Put Pumps on the Artesian Wells. Waco's reputation at the Geyser City it about to suffer from indisoro tion in drilling wells iu the lower part of tho city. When Captain Bell after years of experiments and many thous ands of dollars has succeeded in strik ing the great underground stream of hot water Waco arose and shouted for joy. A question which had vexed the people for years had bocn solved. The fair Central City, had not only been blessed with an abundance of pure water, but that sauio wator had been permeated by nature with health-giving properties which in a few short years gavo Waco a national reputation of being the. healthiest city of its size in the world. Waco continued to prosper and tho hot health-giving stream was tapped in numeoous places on the heights in the western suburbs of tho city. The hot water was piped all over tho city. Everything was prosperous and flour ishing until a well was drilled in tho lower part of the city. Any ono having only tho slightest acquanintanoo with hy draulios need not be told that tho drilling of suoh a well could only have the effect of decreasing tho flow of thoso on the hills When a pump having a capacity of 2,000,000 or 3,000,000 gallons per day was attach ed to tho well the offoct was more marked. Soon aftor tho first well was drilled a second of very large calibre was drilled followed shortly by a third and in a low days a fourth well was added to the list. This will entail a great Iosb on tho Boll Water company. This company has used tho direot pressure system and has no engines and pumps. As its stand pipes are on the hills and the pressure is becoming bo weak that the wells thoro will not fill them it is a patent fact that tho oompany will hayoto put in pumps.

Before this is done howover, an expert hydraulioenginoor will make a thorough survey of the situation and if possiblo effeot a plan by which suoh a move could bo avoided if possible. There is just as muoh water under ground as thoro over was, tho bad part of the whole affair boing tho tapping of tho vein in tho lower part of the city and decreasing, if not entirely stopping tho flow of tho wells on the hills.

Keeping tlio Subject lloTore tlio I'uli lic Mavul Cudut. Washington, April 26. The house spent the entire time yesterday in fili -busting on the question of striking from the Record tho speech of Mr. Walker of Massachusetts. This speech was an attack on the mug wumps of his state and was rather more ridiculous than anything else. The republicans did tho filibustering, They oared nothing for the point in issue, but thought they had tho dem ocrats in a hole, where perhaps Crisp would have to recognize them sitting in their seats silent and count thern as going to make up a quorum. They did not vote and there was a quorum present all tho time. There was no quorum voting, however, and none could be produced. All the New York democrats from New York were about with tho excep tion of two. They were all here last week when tho Noyes vs Rockwell cose was up, and being forced to re main so long they were tired and got away as soon as that case was thiough. It is very hard for New York repro sentatatives in congress to remain around the house for a longer time than a day or two Senator Coke gave notico to the senate today that he would address that body on silver tomorrow. He is an ardent free silver man, and it looks as if there was an agreement among tho free silver senators, even if a free coinage bill cannot get through con gress, to keep tho question before the country. lie will be followed by other senators who favor free coinago and speeches in this line will doubtless be delivered till the ond of this session.
