explained In detail by Engineer I), W.
Murphy, who went over thu ground
with all the members of thu city
council who desired to Inform them
selves; but nt a aubaequelit meeting
of the board on Muy 1Mb when Alex.
Martin, Jr., and tho writer appeared
on behalf of the Water Uaora, the
bill waa culled up, read second time
and laid on table Indefinitely, the
board through Its inuor staling that
they would not entertain it until 1).
W. Murphy changed It to read "con
crete flump" and flrat nettle with tho
property ownera along lino of the
Tho writer hereof, being appointed
by tho board of directors of tho Wn
tor Uaora na a committee of one. to

ing failed to get any proposition for
terms that would bo entertained by
tho U. S. It, S., then drew tip and
circulated tho petition presented to
the city couiirll.
Evoryono signing wna presumed to
undoratnnd tho situation, nu it had
been freely discussed on tho streets
and through tho papers for nearly
four months whilo It had been held
up without action or olllclnl not lie to
tho 11. 8. It H. Tills petition wna pre
sented nt tlm meeting of tho city
council Tuesday evening, the 22nd,
and the question wna raised by Coun
cilman Sanderson that probably- thu
signer of the petition were not In
formed that tho ordinance called for
a wooden fluruo, and objected to by
tba Mayor because thu names of all
tho property owners along the lino of
tho propsed flume did not appear on
the petition. Ilu was told that two
of thu parlies had refused la sign,
and It wna conceded thut tho othera
whoso names did not appear would
also retuse. The council decided to
defer any action on tho matter until
Iho next regular meeting In ordor to
glvo Iho property owners who oppos
ed tho franchise an opportunity to
get up and circulate a remonstrance.
The Mayor, bowever, stated that tha

The property ownera of Klamath
County nppear to have plenty of
ready money. At least that la tho
Indication from thu way they aro
paying up on their second Installment
of taxes. The shcrlff'a office baa been
rather huay ibe pan few days making
tout receipts for taxca which have
been paid. Over 1600 was paid In
yesterday nnd between $300 and
$100 wna received up to noon today.
Taxes will becomo delinquent on
October fifth, the first Monday In the
mouth. There aro now approximate
ly $17,000 of unpaid taxes, but It Is
believed that by the end of tbe week
this will be reduced to nearly $10,
000. This amount of delinquent tax
es Is considered very small for a
county na largu as Klamath and with
so ninny non-rcsldont property own
era. It simply shows that the people
of this county are In a prosperous
condition and consider property here
as n good Investment.

Parties coming In from tho rail
road aru loud In tbolr condemnation
of tho accommodations on tho Cali
fornia Nortcastorn road from Weed
to Calor. They claim that It la even
worao than tho old stylo stago. Com
mercial men, who bavo boon making
thla city for years past say that they
nover dreaded tho trip half so much,
even during tno worst acaaons of tho
atago travel. Thoy naturally expect
better accommodations on a railroad
but atato that If anything they aro
now gutting worao.
Parties reaching Weed from tho
north havo to lay over from 12 until
3 o'clock the next day. Ono party
who nrrlvcd hero tho other evening
describes hla trip aa follows: "We
left Weed about 2 o'clock. The coach
was crowded and a number of tho
passongcrs wcro ladles. They wcra
bringing up a bunch of Greeks or
foreigners of some kind. They wore
a dirty foul smelling lot and would
have been offensive even In tbe open
air. The small smoking compartment
would not hold them and they partly
filled tho only passenger coach on
tho train. Ono party of four had a
quart of whlskpy along which they
proceeded to liven up on. Through
oversight or otherwise no notice was
taken of them by the conductor, al
though they attracted tbe attention
of all the passengers. The rest of
tho bunch literally made a dining
table ot tbe seats which they covered
with stale bread and crumbs and Ut
tered tho aisles with the paper and
"The smell In that car was some
thing flerco, even for a man, and I
am unable to understand how. the
women stood It. The only relief we
had was when tne train stopped about
every flvo minutes and wo were able
to get outside and get a few breaths
of fresh air. We stopped at every
station and every place where there
was no station from a quarter to a
halt of an hour, while tbe engine
switched freight cars. The short
stage ride after we left the car was
bad but I did not hear one person
make a kick. It was a relief to get
on tho boat, but wo were all In when
we reached here at ! o'clock In the
morning. I believe a man Is Justi
fied In making a kick, when we might
Just as well arrived here at 6 or 7
o'clock. It certainly seems to me
that there Is enough travel to war
rant a passenger train on this line,
and I believe If the business men of
this city would see tnat the Southern
Pacific officials were aware of the
conditions that you would get one.
I come here because I have to. t
like the country and do a good bust
ncss here, but at present I cannot
recommend It as a pleasure trip."
