Prerident Sanderson, Superintendent ( Dillon, and Citizens Generally Are Proud of the Showing Made Here. A practical dumcustrat'on of tlu> water pressure In the down town dis tiict was made yesterday (by the Hot , Spiings Water Company which is a standing refutation of the impression existing in some quarters iliat the natural pressure is less than the de mand and less than what it would he to furnish adequate (ire protec tion. The first test was made at the Citizens ‘National hank corner, where with four fire plugs opened to nozzles of one Inch, (he water was thrown at a height of '.*•> and 97 feet. The demand under the city con tract is for a distance of 80 feet. Four lines were attached to the Central avenue mains, one being at Bridge street, another at Spring street, another at Prospect, and the fourth at Reserve avenue. While the test at Bridge street was r. oing made the fire hoys at the Pro - poet avenue were throw ng a stream over *Uhe old city hall building in which The Sentinel(Record is located, and over the Arkansas National bank lbuiMinig at Reserve avenue and Cen tral. _ . Tlii' second test was made at Spring street, where the water was thrown in| feet. The tests at Prospect and Reserve would have shown a higher test as they are located north on the malms. They were not made because of the lafeness of the hour. IMuch Interest was takpn in the demon! f rations by the citizens who had heard so much recently from de mands of underwriters, and from casual criticisms of the water pres sure. These tests were made natural ly from the maims. Taking into con sideration that the city owns two high power motor trucks, equipped to run tiie .pressure up as high as modern i quTpimont makes -possible, the city seems well protected from fire in the matter of the water supply and the pressure. While these water tests in the cen ter of the down town business dis trict mitigated ranch against traffic for the greater part of the afternoon, yet they were so satisfying as to have well repaid for the interruption to business, for they establish confi dence among those who might have I crown skeptical in the matter of the water pressure of the city.

The figures given for the popula tion are those of the government 1910 census. It developed during the tests yes terday tnat tlhe City Fire Department was not equipped with a guase where by tlie water pressure may be not id during every minute of the day. Upon learning of this the officials of tlie Hot Springs Water Company offered to furnish and install a recording and indicating guage for the department. Such guages have been used by the Water Company for many years, the daily charts being filed away for fu ture reference. After tlhe tests yesterday a visit to tile pumping station was made and the recording chart of tile Venturi water meter was examined. This disclosed (he fact that the pumps were not operated from 3:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. which was during the pe riod that tlie tests were being made. The reservoir is located 281 feat above the level of Central avenue, vv<hicn gives an ideal gravity pressure. — ■ o NOTICE TO PUBLIC.

COMMISSION BILL MEETS KITH FAVOR I S ADOPTED SECTION BY SECTION AT MASS MEETING PRESIDED OVER BY M’LAUGHLIN. ssue Over the Police Judgship Was Disposed of by Adopting the Bill as It Came From the Bar Association. The proposed legislative bill for a commission form of government for Hot Springs was adopted from section 13 to the finai section at a mass meet ing last night which had been sched uled to be held under the auspices of tlie Chamber of Commerce, but which later developed into a mass meeting presided over by Leo Mc Laughlin. It was apparent at the outset of the meeting that the hotel men of the city had gathered in numbers and that it would be within tnelr province to make about wthatever disposition of the bill they sought. The disro ' sition they did make of it was to ad- ; here strictly to the hill as it had been | reported on by the bar association, and to adopt and recommend the bill as a wdiole. A legislative committee, composed of Chairman Judge Curl, \V. J. Lit tle, L. E. Sawyer, Sam Williamson* Judge Cotnain, l»r. E. H. Martin and John G. Higgins was named to have the custody of the bill and to present it to the state legislature. President George Callahan of the Chamber of Commerce called tbo meeting to order and stated that in as much as there were several ex ceptions taken to the hill as drawn, and that it was desired to give those* interested an opportunity to furtuer consider changes, it had been decided after a conference of officers of the Chamber of Commerce that the meet ing would be postponed. He state*! that lie regretted baling to make this announcement, and that he would ap preciate from the assemblage if it would take favorable action on the ( matter of postponement of the mat-, ter. Tnere were murmurs or discontent. Physicians and hotel men, who are usually found at issue, were scattered liberally in the audience. It was not difficult to see that tlhe hotel m'n wanted the issue taken up and dis posed of, and that they would not brook delay. Leo McLaughlin made an impas sioned speech for immediate action. He stated ttiat the citizens had been called in mass meeting, and til at they were there. He said that he had [heard amendments were to be put in the bill to practically remove him from office, and be had his friends there to be heard, and that he would insist that tne audience be freed of those not bona fide citizens, and that then the mass meeting consider the bill. •President Callahan saw the meet ing wouid not adjourn at his request, and left the gnair. Dr. W. 0!. Choate made a motion that Leo McLaughlin be chairman of tne mass meeting, which carried. He assumed the cfliair. He called on Secretary Latta to take up the reading of the commission hill at section 13, where it had been dis continued at a former meeting. Sec retary Latta read this section, which obtained as to the disposal of the po lice Judgship. Initer Mr Latta with drew from the meeting, and Mr. Wal ter Ebel was made secretary and con tinued to serve tlhe meeting through the consideration of the bill. When the police judgship section was taken up, Chairman McLaughlin called on Judge Curl to speak to that section. Judge Curl said that it had always been considered a dangerous proposition to combine the executive and the judiciary, and for that reason the bar association had provided tlhat the [Kilice judgship should be sepa rate. He said the salary had been made $2,000 because it was hoped to make this court a court of record, and that it would elevate the munici pal court in the event tne justice of the peace system was disposed of. He also thougfht It was a mistake to make a layman a city court judge. The section as originally drawn was adopted. From that section to the final conclusion the sections were adopted as read, without comment, save in the instance of the recall, which Mr. James Hryan thought s.tould he changed to lie that officers Should be subject to recall at any time, when the hill provides they shall he subject to recall but one time. The original section was adopted as it had been contained in the bar associa tion bill -- -.o- ■ — Toned Up Whole System. “Chamberlain's Tablets have done more for me than I ever dared hope for,’’ writes Mrs. Estihem Mao Baker.
