Toward City Water
At two meetings of the city
fathers this week the matter of
water and sewer was given pBf
ticular attention. The proposi
lion of Mr. Green was turned
down both pliniM and Dtciflcs
tions as well as tentative con
tract, as it lacked derail and was
not at nil satisfactory. The plans
submitted for mains did not cov
er the city adequately, leaving
out Morrison's addition and also
the north part of (own.
The council adopted the plans
of laying the mains submitted by
the Kastern Oregon Engineering
Co. which covers the town more
completely and at less expense,
that is a saving of about 1000
feet of pipe. The plans of Mr.
Green will be filed and used as a
basis of working out other de
tails, however, as it was necess
ary under the former contract to
pay for these whether they were
acceptable or not.
The estimate made by the local
firm of engineers is considerably
cheaper than those of Mr. (ireen.
the local people making an esti
mate of $41,000 for water and
$34,000 for sewer. The city au
thorities hope to call an election
in the immediate future to amend j
the chnrter authorizing bonding
for such purposes. An election
was held before for this purpose
but it seems it was not legal and
must be submitted to a vote
again. As soon as this is done a
bond election will likely be called,
it being the desire of the council
to at least submit the proposition
of water this season at any rate,
as they feel this can be financed
and the system installed this

The usual picture program will
be shown at Tonawama tonight

been some change in the affairs

and has developed into a good
operator. Mrs. Murray now pre
sides at the piano and her repor
toire of music is new to the pat

enjoyment of the programs.
Tonight there will be three
fine reels shown, all good and in
