HARRIS, Editor and Proprietor. Montpelier, Idaho, August 9, 1899. The gold standard cry a couple of years ago fens that there was "plenty of money in the Union, hence wo didn't need silver. it Now comes along Bradsireet and says that times arc getting better be-! cause Alaska is digging lots af gold i and Australia is skipping us a good i deal of metal. In other words, the I money wc have in the country I the better the times are. Such be- ! ing the case, see how prosperous the United States would be if we ! bad free silver more i coinage together | with the gold? Money would in deed be easy then and property Would not be held at a discount as now. Last spring a proposition came before the city Council, which pro- ! vided for the putting in of a water i works System for Montpelier. It ; was to put in a main along Canyon ; street to 4lh, thence south aloifg J 4th to Washington avenue, thence | west along this avenue to the de- j pot. The water was to come from ! the Quaylc dam, and the fall is j sufficient to g* va a good pressure j along the whole wav. mated that this main could be put ! in for $>lu,000 at most, and many I ltelicve it could be done for §7,500. I But say it costs §10,000. The city j could easily bond itself for this am- ' mint, which at G per cent, would lie | §000 a year interest. It is esti-. mated that the plant, even with . only this main, will pay consider- j ably more than running expenses,!«., Which could be applied on interest. | As circumstances permitted side ! mains could bo put in, and in a ' short time the whole town covered ' WHAT OF WATER WORKS. It was esti- i . j gravity plant 111 the west, and the j good thing about it all is that the J cxpmme would be felt by no one. W'th 1000 feet of hose almost ! j oue lna ' I: ' aiu ^ : the insurance rates would thereby | be decreased greatly, and the town ; thus better protected from fire. | I his consideration alone is worth ; *'J00 a year to the city. j Reverting again to the expense j of interest let us figure a little, 1 ho assessed valuation of the city j will he about §235,000 this year, j Every year hereafter this will be ; increased, but taking §200,000 for i a basis, and say the plant didn't j clear anything over expenses, it j would only require a three mill levy i to pay the interest, and the surplus | from the income could be set aside ; as a sinking fund. It would surely j amount to something. Under this | levy a man who wms assessed for a | by a system that would be the finest ■ every building in town could be reached from this * I 000 woul, l ,lavc to pay £3 a year ; to help keep up the plant. Very j few, if any, out of reach of the main, is assessed for this j amount, and those near the main are willing, as near as we can learn, ' to pay this levy for tho benefit. As to the expense of keeping up : aud running the plant, we fail to ! see where there would be any after j the system was in, except, perhaps occasionally. With all this in view, have the council submit the osition for a vote. We believe water I why Dot A would carry almost unanimously, and Montpelier would thus be start- , cd in the race of progress. Wo hive stood still long enough. let's make a move. With this sys- j tem in other improvements, in the 1 way of the erection of good build ings, etc., would follow, and Mont- j «. . peher would grow as it deserves to.
