Same old exorbitant rates for the many, but lower rates for the favored few scorns to be the rule of the Water board since It lins taken possession of the water works. The ordinary consumer has to pay, as bAore, at the rati' of 33 cents a thousand gallons as registered by his meter,- but quite a number have been getting theirs for less. The favored few are those who either kick hurd enough when paying their bills or have a pull strong enough to get n rebate. The rebate allowed varies from 20 to SO per cent. All this Is dlsclo&cd by tho records In the Water bourd office, on which the allowances made must be noted to ac count for the discrepancy between the amount of water registered by the meter, and the amount actually paid for.

"I took my bills with mo and shuwed them that the amount, had lncreased-tremcndously since the, city took over the plant.

NO, there's uann't any leak, and It was the same meter I had hod all the time, nml I don't bellove we let any faucets run accidentally. That's Just what I told them at the water office, and finally they said i 'AH right, we'll let you pay what you think you ought to pay, and let It go nt that." They cut my blli almost In halt, but told me not to let anyone else know about It, because It was done as a special favor to me, and .they didn't want to have to cut other people's bills." Another man who got a nice rebate explains: "I Just kicked, and I kicked good and hard, and said I wouldn't stand for the tylll they were trying to put over .on me. I said I would go Into court and resist It, and I got my reduction, all right." House Re-Passes Webb Liquor Bill WASHINGTON, Feb. 11. By a Viva, voce vote the house late today repasse.! tlx!
