The City Can't Pay for Them-Khonld
Purchase the Water Works and
Nave money Other Business.
Lots of business was before the
meeting of the board last night, all
of which was of more or less import
ance. The water works committee sub
rnitted their report of locating and
recomending four new plugs, but
after considerable discussion pro and
con the matter was dropped, the city
having no means of paying Jor them.
Mr. P B Fefzer, representing the
water works company, appeared be
fore the meeting and very candidly
informed the commissioners that the
water works could be- bought and
run by the town to an advantage
and at great deal less expense The
system would cost the city about
$16,000 to own it, and from reve
nues derived from private and resi
dence rentals woulA pay the run
ning expenses, leaying the city a
small surplus of several hundred
dollars annually, b( Bides increasing
the number of plugs from nine to
twentyfiye. The purchase of the
water works by the city could be
done only after a vote on the ques
tion by citizens, in favor of which
the sentiment is very strong.
Ordinance No. 27, prohibiting
people from entering vacant houses
for the purpose of playing games,
etc., was amended to make it a mis
demeanor for a person or persons to
enter vacant houses for the purpose
of occupying same, whether to game
or not, without permission of owner.
The frame building known a3 the
"red store house,"" and the rear
rooms of the A G Lentz property,
near the Morris House, were con
demned and deemed unsafe to allow
fire in them.
A new ordinance was passed mak
ing it a misdemeanor for smoking
on any of the cotton platforms or in
any of the cotton warehouses in the

oners a rate of $1.00 per day for
working out fines, was changed, re
ducing the rate to 60 cents per day

New Discovery is undoubtedly the

used it in his family for eight years,

Wasn't a Tramp.
Tuesday night last a tramp called
at a horn? on North Main street and
asked for a "handout." When the
lady had deposited h lunch in the
beggarman's hands, the fellow Bbiv
ering from cold, said to her:
"Madam, I wish you to understand
that I am no tramp, and will re
turn tomorrow and cut you some
wood." He called the next morn
ing, but m another pait of the city,
and he didn't split the wood, and
wouldn't if he could.
Tramps are so numerous that as
many as twenty have been known to
"strike" one house in a day. It's a
pity the city authorities won't put
them to work on the streets, where
they could at least earn lheir bread.
An Oppertunlty for All.
Manufacturer's Record: The
movement of population southward
is assuming very large proportions.
Many tracts of land are beiDg pur
chased for colonization purposes, and
hundreds, eyen thousands, of West
ern and Northern farmers are al
ready settling in the South, These
are but the advance guards of a flow
of population which promises to be
a great as that which swept over the
Northwest fifteen or twenty years
ago. The influence upon Southern
advancement, can scarcely be appre
ciated now. It means a closer union,
a better acquaintance, a more uni
form development, a better and more
even distribution of wealth between
the sections, and the building up of
the whole country. For the South
it means a wounderful impetus and
a gret increase in wealth and pop
ulation. The most enterprising and
progressive counties and towns of
the South will secure the greatest
benefits from this new order of
things, What are you doing to turn
