DOCTORED THE WATER.
Interesting Story of La Grande's City
Tim UnrnlnET of the otllce and rec
ords of the city water superintend
ent at La Grande on Monday night,
recalls an interesting story connect
ed with the city water supply of the
La Grande draws its water supply
from the Grande Ronde river, one
mile above town, and an agitation
was started a year ago to enter into
a contract with a private company
to buy the city water from a new
storage reservoir above town, and
discard the river water.
About the time this agitation was
at Its height, the city water from the
river came almost unbearable and
undrlnkable, because of some sick
ening stench suddenly appearing.
The stuff smelled like a Chinese
stink pot or something equally as,
bad and the residents pourod In in
dignant complaints from all sides.
An Investigation of the source of .the
water was ordered and the water
commission dragged the river and
turned over every stone and log look
ing for the causo of the odor.
The O. R. & N. water supply, which
was pumped out of the river 100
yards above the headgate of the city
supply, was sweet and refreshing,
and not a trace of tho foul smoll in
tho city supply was found In it. Peo
ple began to wonder how the river
could take on such an unbearable
odor In such a short distance, nnd
tho Investigation assumed a heated
stage. .. ,
About this tlmo the city water bo
camo fresh and clean again, although
notlting was found by tho commis
sion, and It wbb then thought that
It was n part of tho persuasion
brought to boar to close the deal for
water from tho prlvato company.
