City Council Believes Vertical Pump Out of Question. PRICE FOR MACHINE HIGH Indication That There Will be Some Delay in Making a Selection May Have to Build. Some of the aldermen are beginning t think that the council is up against a combine as far as the vertical pump is concerned. If one cannot be pur chased cheaper than is indicated by the bids now before the body, that class of machine is out of the ques tion. However, there are a number, if not a majority, who prefer a vertical pump to the horizontal. And on ac count of the few manufacturers making this machine it seems almost impossi ble to get anything that is independent of the alleged combination. l)Milon IHxtmit. While at times there has been a dis position to equip the waterworks plan: as soon as possible with the new pump, since the aldermen have become in volved in the actiml task of picking out a machine, they have come to believe that little is to be gained at present by haste in making the selection. With the vertical out of the running, the fa vorites seem to be the Holly, manu factured by the Snow company, and the Allis Chalmers machine. The bids on these pumps were lower than the others on the one that is adapted to the needs of the city. W ill Have ( llnihl. If the pumps now in operation are to be kept, there will have to be addi tional room at the plant for the pump, and it now seems probable that such is the case. Definite decision will be reached later. BULLETS MINGLED WITH MISSILES IN A FIGHT Two Men and One Woman Engage in Battle on Eighteenth Street About Midnight No Injuries. "A desperate fight, in which two men and a woman were engaged, occurred last night about midnight on Eigh teenth street, just below Second ave nue. The three participants came from the east alley between First and Sec ond avenues, and engaged in the scuf lle on Eighteenth street, throwing bricks, pieces of wood, and other handy missiles at each other. They were in dulging in considerable loud talking and the two men were exceedingly bitter in their denunciations of each other. After a fight lasting some min utes without interference, one of the men took to his heels, and as he went the other fired a revolver at him. The bullet apparently missed the mark, as the runner continued. The other man and woman disappeared a minute later. FORMER ASSOCIATES GATHER Luncheon at Club in Honor of Major C. McD. Townsend.
