Favor Purchasing Water Plaint.
TYhlle the Montavilla Improvement
League passed resolutions opposing the
purchase of the Mount Tabor water
plant, the Montavilla Board of Trade has
taken the opposite view of the question,
and favors the purchase of the plant
at a "reasonable rate." A petition has
been circulated and signed by about ISO
property owners, asking that tho Water
Committee purchase the plant if an
agreement can be reached as to price.
It is the Judgment of sonio of the mem
bers of the Montavilla Board of Trade
that unless the city secures this plant
before Summer and connects with at
least an S-inch main the distribution
tystem there will involve a great short
age and much hardship. "If we wait
till the city lays a big main," said Dr.,
Deveny, "and then puts in a distribution
system we will not get any more water
for three years than we now, have.
Eighteen thousand dollars has been ap
propriated to lay a main to Montavilla
but that is all. If the city will connect
with an 8-inch main to the present dis
tribution system then we will have water
for domestic purposes, but not for fire
purposes. That will come later."

when coal could be expected, a repre

as- the railroads will promise us
nothing in the way of shipments.

only a few cars from Carbonado. We

"We expect a cargo of coal from
Japan about February 15, but cannot
depend upon it," said a representative
of the Pacific Coast Company yester
day. "We are not accepting any
orders at all for coal at our up-town
office. The very small amount of coal
we are getting is gong out as fast as
it is coming in."
Slabwood Is selling for $3 a load, the
companies having upwards of 1)0
orders ahead. There are some parts of
the city to which the dealers will not
agree to haul, as the roads are in such
bad condition that the teams have dif
ficulty getting through. It is not un
common on East Ankeny street, where
the roads are comparatively good, for a
loaded wood wagon to be helped up the
small hill by the streetcars. In South
Portland, west of Kelly street, the resi
dents find it almost impossible to get
the dealers to make deliveries.

will be done under separate contract.
There Is much feeling among the citizens
of St. Johns over the delay in finishing
