In the election Saturday
decide the question of leasing the
water works to J. T. McDonald,
as per contract made by the City
Council, the proposition was
again defeated by 18 votes, there
being only 98 votes cast. This
complicates matters seriously so
far as water service is concern-
ed. The city owes J. T. Mc-
Donald something near $3,000 cm
improvements and has nothing
in sight tomeettimindebtedness.
It is impossible to borrow, as
issuing bonds for the sewers has
put the limit on that source.
At the city ^council meeting held
Monday night the subject was
discussed from every viewpoint.

Office over Whith& Company,
to devise a small sum to create a
fund, the city secretary was in-
structed t o notify the Texas
Light and Power Company to
discontinue the street lights
after June 1st. This service
costs the city $51 per month, and
had been paid from the water
works revenue under the pres-
ent system. The water Works
committee ' w a s instructed- to
revise .the water rates and report
back to the city council at their
next meeting. The water works
committee is composed of S. L.
Randlett, Jack Billingsley and G.
C. Rawlins, who are holding con-
sultations to devise ways and
means of continuing the service.
The problem that is confronting
them is the meeting of the obli-
gation to Mr. McDonald, and the
erection of a new stand pipe,
which was included in the con-
tract rejected by the citizens in
the election Saturday. It is
rather discouraging ttf this city
council, and to others that will
follow, to elect them to assume
the responsibilities of the city
government, and invalidate their
acts. The city council will en-
deavor to have the lights at Rail-
way and inter urban crossings
maintained by the companies,
and,farther suggest that it may
be possible for property owners
who desire, to arrange for the
continuance of lights near their
residences, by several contribut-
ing to a fund for same.
Since the above was put in tpye
an advertisement for sealed bids
for the operating of the system
has been inserted, and Mayor,
Griffin, the water works com-
mittee and other members of the
council have expressed them-
selves as determined to give the
citizens the very best service
possible and to meet emergencies
with the same business methods
they would use was it their own
business they were transacting
under similar circumstances,and
such it is, for they, too, are citi-
zens and tax-j)ayers, and gain or

The sure ’nought bqss of the
Lancaster Herald, E. M. Hulbert,
and wife, went to- Dallas Friday
to spend the week-end. Satur-
day they were given a sixty-mile
auto ride, taking in several ad-
joining towns, where of course
the principal Maces of interest
were the newspaper o&ces. At
Garland they found Bro. Arm-
strong and force busy, but ready
to extend cordial greetings. At
Mesquite they visited Bro. John
E. Davis and talked politics for a
; few minutes. Bro. Harben at
Richardson was so busy with ar-
rangements for the, annual state
press meet at El Paso, that they
did not tarry long, but stopped
a few minutes at his home to see
his better half. A picnic dinner
was enjoyed at Turtle Creek, and
- a few hours spent in fishing and
dabbling in the water. They
attended Mothers’ Day services
at First Baptist church Dallas,
, : Sunday. They report a delightful
„ time, but we can’t make it sound
interesting as we were left at
home to feed the chickens, see
that the meals were served on
time; file children bathed and
put to bed at regular hours, and
incidentally look after business
