soon after the European war broUe out.
, Raw Products Bring More.
"But now," Mr. Carlton said, "every
thing is working to get the Nation out
of the hands of the pessimists. Th-s
prices for raw products lose because
of the war, war orders lor the Dig lac
torles, the return of confidence, and the
Federal reserve banks are doing much
to restore prosperity.
"At first our reports showed that
prosperity yas cropping out in spots in
different parts of the East. South and
mid-West, and of late on the Pacific
Coast. This wave of prosperity is
spreading gradually throughout the
Kast and ought to include the Coast in
the near future.
Mr. Carlson declared that there would
fe no change in the western union
policy. "There never has been any

SEVERAL -SURPRISES DUE
WATER RATE ISSUE NOW
Opposition to Mr. Daly's $3 Charge
for Coolers Is Extensive.
Whether or not waterusers having
cooling closets are to be forced either
to pay a monthly rate of $3 in addi
tion to their regular charge will be
decided by the City Commission this
morning. Mayor Albee has sent an
ordinance to the Council repealing the
cooling closet charge. He says the
charge would force the people having
cooling closets to put on water meters
regardless of the fact that there is a
referendum measure now pending in
volving the meter proposition.
Mayor Albee was besieged with
telephone calla yesterday from per
sons protesting against the $3 a month
charge for the water coolers.
There are 225 houses In the city now
fitted with the water cooling arrange
ments. It is contended by Commissioner
Daly that these devices cause waste of
water. Mayor Albee contends that they
do not and that the Imposition of a
$3 a month rate would be an injustice.
