We give place to the following commu
nication, believing it right to make such
complaintspublic, when the usual pri
vate importunity proves ineffectual. We
know netting of the facts, and can an
swer only , one of the, queries, the ques
tiorOiwhOer the= money expended for
branch pipes should have been emended
in: buying 1 up the Water Committee?"
We ansvrer that it should not, and that
we believe the members of that Commit
tee are incapable of the crime implied by
the question. We may add that the au
thor of • the article is a responsible and
highly respectable citizen, every way en
titled t&be heard: 41
..Ennorts GAsErria : Can you inform
me of ' the inecessary means or ways of
having the water pipes laid on ouretreet,
(Beech street, Allegheny.) Two years
ago I built s house on this street, and on ,
application ter the proper authorities (by
petition)• fOr water privileges, was in
formed that there were no: sufficient
houses on the street to warrant the out
lay. I then had the water pipes on
Grant Avenue tapped, and a bran* '
brought to My_ building, at an expense
of between one and two hundred dollars.
One. year ago We had ten bouses on the
street and sent in another petition for the
water privilege. and were again refused.
Since that time we have other buildings
on our street, and I have been inforfned
the reason 'why the water pipes are nut
put down is that, a large property owner
on the street refuses to buy city bonds,.
certainly a very excellent reason why
the other property owners should be de
prived of their privileges. As the
Wises on the street are all fl no and rather
elegartt buildings, the owners (who oc
cupy the buildings,) have been compelled
to bring branch pipes to their houses at
their own expense. The city authorities
though neglecting. our wants, have not
forgotten to tax me this year $22 75 for
water rent, and I think $26 last year.
Now, please tell me, should we have
spent the money we paid for bringing
the water branches to our houses in buy
ing up the Water Cointnittee, or donating
it in some way other than a bribe?
Other streets with but one and two
houses on them have the waterprivilege;
then, why not ours? BEEMI
