Mayor of Astoria.
Office Water Commission,
Astoria, April Hi, Its.
To the Honorable Myor and Common
Council of Ihe city of Astoria: I
Gentlemen: The communications of Ihe j
mayor and auditor have hen laid before !
Ihe commission In reply the commie-
elon has directed Ihe following answer '
lo Im made: i
The distribution system has not been
completed: neither haa It been turned
over by the contractors or cerlllrd lo by
Ihe engineer. The superintendent nnd
fins committee have tie.-n requested not !
to handle Ihe hydrants until they shall
tie turned over to the city. It la eiperted
that the works will lie ao far completed '
by May let thai water may lie fumahed
for fire purpoec.
It Is mode the duly of the rommbslon .
to estimate at Ihe beginning of the year !
tha amount necessary to pay Interest on
the three hundred thousand dollars
bonds, the operating gienca and cost '
of extension for the new year.
It was tipKised thai at lessi fjx) per ;
annum would be willingly paid out of the ;
clly treasury toward the maintenance
of Ihe water work In consideration of
the facilities lurnlslird for 'Im pror.r- ,
Hon. It la conceded by all thai the fa- i
clllile for flreproie-tlou will be much ,
greater than under the old lire engine ,
It I estlmilrd that the rrducilm In
cost of Ihe lire depitmeni will lie more
than Ihe .'- asked, ao th.it after paving
that sum Ihe fust to the city would still .
be cheaper than before.
Ureal additional cost has been Incurred
In Ihe const run Ion of Ihe works so that
they would afford effiM-'.lve fire protec- '
lion. The large line on Jerome avenue i
Is only one Instance of the extra expense. ;
There are very few consumers cn thnt I
line, very lew ciuee can so neuriy ai- j on,r Poh h(U1 tukta ce ot ,he re
penee with Hre engine aa con Ihe clly i m.in. bu. i. i. , ihous-ht an inouest
of Astoria when the work shall be com-
Jdeled. This Is a matter not always con-
sldered, when It Is eald that some city
dors not pay out Its general funds for
the suiKrl of Ihe system.
Ho efficient will lie the Astoria system
that It la expectiHl the Are Insurance
rates will tie reduced to the henellt of
the property holder.
Where private "consumpllon is so great
that a small rule will pay the Interest
ami rxM-nses, ll perhaps Is proper for
the expense to be borne by the consum
ers; further, the city rilghl derive a
profit from the works, but when thin
method liecomes cxccsUae nnd burden
some It should be divided with nnd shar
ed by the tax pnyerK. The commission
dnea not think the expense of Improve-
mtnts made for I he fu'.ure, or of works 1
made especially for fire purposes should I
he home rutin ly by private consumers.
The commission has been cited to some
cities on the roast w here It Is alien. xl the
general funds contribute nothing for the
public use of water.
Moscow was named, In whl'h n sum
equal to fc per annum per hydrant Is j
niii, niNi jfi iiie iiuiuiy rnie, rami miu
oset Included Is only to dollars n
against two and a h.ilf In Astoria.
The commission thinks the expense in
Astoria on the private consumer Is too j
blKh nnd will be for
year or l wo. to :
lulnilt of free use of water for lire pur- I
poses. Portland, cited by your commit- !
tee, chaws a family rate of fifty cents: j
Astoria one dollar .mil fifty cents. Hut
Pol l land has not such servh e ns As
toria. It cannot so Ken-rally dispense
with steamers. It p-tys for private hy
drants. Tim council out of Ihe general
funds furnished, puts In nnd maintain
nil of the city hydrants. The commission
In Astoria ha furnlih.-d and Is pulling
In tho hydrants at the expense of the
water funds. If Astoria rould furnish
water at fifty rents family rate, there
Would not he Ihe same reason for asking
Id from the council. In Portland, how
ever, tha commission Is not satisfied and
charges the city every month, although
not yet able lo collect. In Pendleton
the receipts fall to meet the disburse
ments, and the deficit Is made up direct
ly or Indirectly from other than water
fund. Tncoma, Seattle, Halt Lake and
Sacramento have much less family rates
than Astoria. Some of them, perhaps
none, can dispense with fire englnna, but
sufficient data for a full understanding
of the working of the cysteine In these
cities are now at hand, to as to allow a
fair comparison with Astora.

MET AN AWFUL DEATH.
Veteran of the Cayuse War Burned
Alive Near Seaside.
Sunday evening N. A. Kber-nan. an old
rvslcV-nt rf tM oaunty. w burned
alive at this home near Seaside. The
helpless condition of the unfortnnste msn
makes the affair the eaddrr. Mr. Fiber
man, for the past nve or lx year, had
been paralysed, and he waa as helpless
as an Infant. Sunday evening Mrs. Eber
roon and her two daughters left the res
idence to attend church, leaving the old
gentleman alone. When they returned
the house was In ashes. In which the
charred rem sine of the husband ajid
father were burled.
About II o'clock some neighbors by, saw
flamca Issuing from the building, and
Immediately gave the alarm. A the
house I situated some distance from
other habitations. It was some time be
fore a rescuing party reached the cene.
The party was too late, however, for lha
