The Richest Man la the "World.
There never was an issue be
fore the people of this city of
such great impo" tance as the mat
ter of a water system from this
city to Rock Creek. Over the
perpetuity clause in the water
bill passed by the lasfe legislature
'there ha been graat discussion
and those for and against bond
ing the city for $75,000 to build
such system grew farther and
farther apart in their views un
til it looked as thbugh the chances
for obtaining water under the
present bill were being jeopard
ized. At a meeting of the Benton
County Citizen's League last
Tue dav evening: this matter
came up and a good candid ex
pression of both sides of the ppp'
osition was made. As before
stated, the opposition to the mat
ter of a water system is compar
atively slight. The main objec
tion -on the part of the people
came from th'e perpetuity clause,
whereby the commission perpet
Those named as commissioners
have maintained all the time that
the bill could be so -changed at
the next meeting of the legisla
ture as to make the commission
ers elective by the people. Many
not on the commission shared
this view. But others advanced
jthe opinion that the bond-holders
would have a right to object to a
-change in conditions" after they
, had purchased; the bonds. 1 From
those in favor of the commission
.as proposed this' argument was
met that the property was good
to the bond-holders for the vari-
ous sums taken m Donas, conse
quently the legislature could, ef-
iect a satisfactory change at the
next meeting. In reply to this
statement , came the assertion
that if the property was good
the owners of such property had
a right to representation in the
matter, and so it went.
bo tar as we Know, tnere is no
objection to the members of the
commission as a wnole and on
many occasions we have heard it
stated , that were thev people to
elect a commission it is a matter
of doubt if they would in the
endchoose so wisely. There is
no reward provided for their la
bors in connection with the work
of building the system. It is
stated, and truthfully, too, that a
. large portion of the western part
of the city is without water pro
tectien m case, of fire. A great
water system would lessen dan
ger of loss from fire and conse
quently secure' lower insurance!
A few days ago a member of
the, proposed commission stated
that he believed that the majori
ty of those to constitute the com
mission would favor leaving to a
vote of the people the matter of
- the committee to manage the
' works after they Were completed.
He thought he would be willing
to be balloted on by the people
and the four commissioners get-.
- ting the largest vote should con
; stitute the committee. Further
' more, he thought that they would
.be willing to -pledge themselves
to assist in taking the .matter be
fore the legislature two years
hence and having the commis
sioners made elective by the peo
ple. ' . .
Such a proposition cannot but
will be restored, as it strengthens and
bin Ida np these ergans as nothing else
will. Oscar Bowman. Lebanon,' Ky.,

is having those changes made, is
not going to have the work done

superintend the work himself.

6-foot deck is to run along the
north and south sides of this
room, while in ithe east end, or
back part of the building, the
decking is to be 24 feet wide. A
stairway is to run up from the
south side of ' the building and
will open from the street. Up

pains through the groins. I suf
fered terribly at the time of men

and rushing of blood to the brain.
What to 'try 1 knew not, for it
seemed that I had tried all and
failed, but I had never tried Wine
of Cardui, that blessed remedy for
sick women'. I found it pleasant
to take and soon knew that I had
the right medicine." New blood
seemed to course through my veins
and after using eleven bottles I
was a well woman.
Mrs. Bush is now in perfect
health because she took Wine of
Cardui for menstrual disorders,
bearing down pains and blinding
headaches when all other remedies
failed to bring her relief. Any
sufferer may secure health by tak
ing Wine of Cardui in her hoine.
The first bottle convinces the pa
tient she is on the road to health.
