Tin Mayor ha-riiifc called the commu- tes to order, stntcd that the resolution of Alderman Mnckay, which was that a committee of three members, together with the Mayor and City Attorney, be appointed to correspond with the 1'rosi- dont of the wator-works with a vlow of agreeing upon terms for tho nurclmio, by the oity, of the water-works, and the same to be submitted to tlie voters of this city had been reforred to tuiit oom- milteo. His Honor snitl he bcliefed tho city should own the water-works. This res- olution was uindc witli a view of pur- chasing the water-works, lie would very much favor the establishment of a sjetsin ot thoir own water-works, lu llie meantime, tho city ia placed under n certain contract, and they ought not to betray tho faith of the city.

Howard, and Judge Noonan in Hint time decided the Water-works Company Had a right to lecover. Wo had not received the water liu' they made us pay for It. Devine: My Impression Is this that while tlio city is under obligation to take water from the company and pay eomuuli for every hydrant, vet tlidrc Is nothing In tho contract that prohibits tha city from giving permission to another party to lay pipes and furnish Grooa: Is the city at liberty to estab- lish a system of water-works of their OWK.

The olty engineer on further Inquiry stated thnt tho average distance of closets from the main sower would be GO or CO feet; at the oulBide, SO fret.
