THE SL1UECT "WILL AGAIN HE WSIICSSED MONDAY EVENING. The water question, which has been agitated for so long a lime, is airain to he brougtft before the people for public debate. The subject which will be dis cussed Monday evening at the city meet ing is to decide as to the feasibility of the city building city waterworks, and whether a sewer would be laid on the west side of the river. At the present time there are 10 com panies who supply the people of Barre with water and each company is en tirely distinct from the other in every way. The city council ntits last meet ing talked the matter over briefly, and the question has arisen, that if the city wish to have water works of their own, can they condeni the other companies who are furnishing the city with water? These companies, sonic of whom have been granted charters and given the riydit to lav their pipes through the streets of the city. The city has staled its willingness to purchase these plants, providing the owners do not set the due too high. Some ot the companies have already stated the price at which they would be willing to sell, but they are considered exorbitant by some of the officials. It is hoped a decision will be reached in the matter. To get some idea idea as to the views of the public on the mailer aim sewer quesion ! u Evening Extkktihse reporter has inter viewed a number of prominent citizens on the subject. e. I.. SMITH. 'I ccrtainlv think it is Ii- that the city controlled its own waterworks, but 1 io not think we can afford to put in waterworks if these private com panics are allowed to supply the people. It would not be profitable. 1 am in favor of condemning the water of the Barre Water company because I think it would be to the advantage of the city to do it. If the city docs not propose to put in waterworks and use the water from Martin brook, some arrangements should be made whereby some other company could supply the people with this water, as we are in need of belter city water. 1 believe that as the west side people Jielped pay for our sewer they are entitled to one," CITY ATTOltNEY SWAZEV. "I think any municipality of this size should own its own waterworks. 1 be lieve it would be a good thing for the city to secure their own plant. Jf you cannot purchase these water systems at a reasonable price they should be con demned. I am in favor of putting in a sewer on the west side at once." MA YOU GORDON. "I think the city should own its own works and supply the whole city. It is a great mistake that the city did not do this a number of years ago. I am also in favor of laying a sewer on the west side." S. I). A I.I. EN. "I see no reason why we should not make a temporary loan until the linauce of the country is settled and bring the Martin brookhcre at once and not wait until our industries m-o shut down f-r want of water. We ought to have as 'much energy in this respect as the Barre Water Company. They went to a orciit expense last fall for one half the water we have, and did it for a specula tion anil we do it for our own use. Jf al lowed the franchise this Company n.sk . we will py dearly for it in the end in my judgement. Think what Mr. Foster, (a man beyond re proach) says iu our last city report, well worth looking over. It is iu my opinion the most important article that ever came before our city nicctim;. and should la: considered without delay." The Entekimiise will contain Monday n further list of opinions upon this sub jecl. We have D. M. Ferry & Co's Mixed Sweet Pea Seed, last eorp, oe. per oz. L. M. Averill. MUST VOLUNTEER.

E RECEIVES ORDEI5S TODAY. cr received orders this morning to load a carat once with all the camp equipage of the Company and send il without delay to Fort Ethan Allen. There is rather a strange incon sistency in this move if the Vermont reg imiMit is to lie. mobilized ut Bratlleboro as reported. The present indications lead to the belief that the mobilization will lake place at Fort Ethan Allen and that the regiment, will be kept there to undergo a hard drill practice every day until sent to sonic other place for active service. It is not reasonable to suppose that the government would put iniothe field for active service recruits who have had but one week's experience in dri'l, and men who as yet have never had the slightest knowledge of military tactics. It is safe to say that when tne tirst regi ment is called out il will remain in ser vice, for t he period of enlistment and will not be given any vacation al pres ent. nvr -ay "I hfivo found a way," eaid tbo Rirl who v.'i.rli.i down town, "to avoid being Ehovcd aside l y men behind mo when I am trying to get ou an 'L' car in the eveiiinf,' to ;; home.
