ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR V By sheer weigiit of forces, and by Virtue of the slaughter of thousands of her soldiers. Germany has in her persistent hammering, forced her troops up to the inner defence circle of jhe fortress of Verdun. But. ex- hausted by the most violent fighting. her infantry lies inactive at the very gates of the fort, and only be confined to artillery bombard- ments. The question once more arises, can the Germans take Verdun? Even were they to take It, what would they profit? The taking of Verdun, while a loss to the French, the occu- pation of the fortress would prove an even greater calamity for the Ger- mans, in the very slaughter of thou- sands such a capture would entail. Seeming victory, then, would be turn- ed into actual defeat.

They have decided that a filtration plant in connectioj I with the present system is the solu tion.

There were two possible solutions j for the dirty water problem comront- ing the commissioners when t 1 commenced serious consideration of the matter this spring. They had the alternative of putting in a gravity water system from the St. Mary's river and bringing the supply in by pipeline over a distance of 35 or 40 miles. The estimated cost of a two- foot main for this purpose was 000 This was a very conservative estimate based on the experience of other cities.

Figur- ing on the basis of a daily consump- tion of gallons of water, the .cost of bringing the water to the present distribution system would b'e about Sc per 1000 'gals. This with the coil of distributing and other opera- tion and collection costs would bring the coat of water up to over 18 cents per thousand gallons. It is also to be remembered that the installation of a. gravity system would mean prac- tically the scrapping of the present pumping plant at the power station. A3 the power plant receives pei thousand gallons for pumping, the svstem would knock the power department out of that amount of revenue, resulting in a loss in the elpctric department, and a consequent raising of electric lighting rates.
