Water Works Meeting
The Roy Water Works Co. held
their meeting in the new Bushkevitz
hall on Wednesday evening, June 24.
The stockholders were nearly all pres
ent. Chairman Goodman called the
meeting to order, t-.nd the stockhold
ers discussed various plans for the
operation of the Roy Water Works
System. -v
Mr. Bushkev'itz suggested a plan,
which was a very .good one. He said
that at present the' stockholders were
unable to pipe the water into town and
that all that could be done at the
present time would be to put up a
large wind mill and storage tank and
make a contract with some reliable
person who would agree to furnish the
people of the town with good . water
delivered at their houses for 20 cents
per barrel, and tuke good care of the
water works property, giving a roy
alty of 5 cents on every barrel thus
sold." The secretary of the company
to sell coupon books to people who
would use the water. Also that a
public watering trough be installed in
the center of the town, which is to be
kept filled with water for the fre- use
of all outside public who would come
heiM to trade. The , business itipii
would be taxed in proportion to their
holdings. '
Later, Win. C. Roy, the chairman, .
came up to the hall and was called on
for his views on the matter, and he
proposed a plan which was the best
one and the original one as was first
proposed. '
He is .wiiyng to pipe the water in'o ...
town, bui lie would ratlrer see two
good men in full charge of the who
system and do it up in proper style.
He wants to buy up all of the small
stockholders and have full control of
the whole works. The matter was left
on the table for further consideration
of the stockholders, which will ba fi
nally decided at lbs next regular
meeting next week.
Broken at Last.
The drought at last has been brok?n
by a heavy rain on Thursday night,
which lasted about two hours, during
which time an inch of water fell. This

Indicalions are that we will get some

to the old timers t lie sfc dry during
the months of May and June. None of
these people who have been here for
the past twenty-five years remember of
ever seeing such a longlasling drought
in the months of May and June. The
sheep men claim it was one of the
worst years in the history of the
sheep raising business.
