Water Supply Project, No. 2.
Mr. Albert Smith in his communi
nation to the Board of City Commis
sioners cites the rates paid by
*consumers in the Cities Qf Burling
top, Vt. and Madison,, Wis., is 6'
cents per 1,000 gallons." Mr. Smitb
further says that the two cities above
named stand on the shores of tl
't0aters from which they draw their
supp/lia"-conuoquontly the supply
to th, 'itiy is absolutely free-and th
-question arises--Why should con
unIerH, in the cities named, pay 5
'cents per 1,000 gallons? The above
lamed corporations will very truth
fully answer for diatribetion.,
Now let us examine Mr. Smith'
proposition and we will see that h
offers to furnish to this city in a re
servoir or stand pipe (to be furnish
ed by the city) water at the am
price that consumers pay for it i
Burlington and Madison-at firs
night, a rather tempting bait-but i
costs the two cities named, about 54
cents for delivery to consumers, and
Key West could not expect to d
any better, or even as well. Henc
we may safely add to Mr. Smith'
proposition the cost of delivery mak
ing the coat to consumers, not le.
$100 per 1,000 gallons or one cer
per gallon.
If the Board or anyone else ima
gines that this will be B populh

supplied with good cieterns, ensure

wheu alb a sudden they seem to for-

There are ocoaions too. where the
motit degraded of earth's o ildren, have
i)y the labor and iutftenoe of the philau-
thropic, been lifted to a position of re-
spoutability, then, instead of manifesting
au appreciation of those favors, will pass
their benefactors by as of no account.
Again there are many wu'ni hearted
