THE DAILY ASTORIAN, ASTORIA, WEDNESDAY MOllNING. MAY 23, 1894.
THE WATItfl QUESTION. A Housekeeper Asks Some Very Perti nent Questions. It Is with much regret that the editor of The Astorlan is obliged to confess his Inability to answer the simple in quiries contained In the following com munication. It Is published with the hope that some better informed person will kindly favor the anxious house keeper with the desired explanation. To any such volunteer (or perhaps it may be the honorable commissioners them selves who will undertake the office), the columns of The Astorlan are open: Editor Astorlnn: Con you throw any light on the very dry and vexing ques tion of the Inefficient water supply for the home of Astoria? How It can be possible to keep healthy and well, neatl and clean, with such a limited amount as we are allowed by the Astoria Water Company, is beyond my ability as a housekeeper to understand. It is a shame and disgrace that the men of the city have not long ago protested against this niggardly manner of sup ply and perfect indifference shown to the public needs by the water commls sioners. wny snouid the money for a new and abundant water supply He Idle In banks and we suffer In consequence, in boh temper and comfort of mind and body? They do not pretend to noti fy us as to the hours when 'water will be turned off, and in consequence we cannot tell when to lay lu a tupply. Let me give this one day's experi ence: Girl rises at 4 a. m.; begin wash ing; no water; family rises at 7:30 a. m.; no water for morning ablutions; at 9-30 Monday morning at that the water is turned on. One member of the family lets water out of bath tub (that was laid by in store night before), and takes a bath; water turned off during bath; so none can be stored for balance of morning, "or until turned on again. Now, how long Is It necessary to keep such a water commission board in office? Are there no live men in town who can use wisely, Immediately and In a manner satisfactory to the Astoria taxpayers, the money long ago appro priated for a new water supply? Please agitate this question, than which, just now, there is none more Important, not excepting even the R. R. question. INDIGNANT HOUSEKEEPER. OREGON NOTES. - Woodburn had a game of mumble-peg which lasted two hours. Klamath county had a 24-hour rain storm, which has gone on record as a "gully washer." Willow Ranch had a smallpox scare, which proves to have arisen from a case of chlckenpox. Jacksonville has assumed metropoli tan airs, her citizens having arranged to put in electric lights. Two hundred delegates to the general assembly of the United Presbyterian church are expected at' Albany tomor row. A CALL. Astoria, Or., May 1st, 1894. To B. S.

Those lovers of music who were pres ent at the Presbyterian church concert lastj night enjoyed a treat, such as has not been given in Astoria for a long time. The church was profusely decor ated, and long before 8 o'clock, the pro gram time of commencement, the whole church was crowded, not even standing room being obtainable. The ladles who took part In the performance were all presented with lovely bouquets, and it may not be out of order for us to record the fact that only one gentleman had such an honor bestowed upon him, the lucky man being Mr. Walter Ridehalgh who played the accompanyment to Miss Graoe Carruthers. The program was made long no account of the many en cores. The following is the program: J. B. Wyatt, Conductor. Mrs. T. Olsen and Miss Maud Warren Accompanists. Part I.
