■ In Joly Mr.'Lindsey modestly asked therity-to buy Jiis'oUl hycl^yiits and to
supply any new oncf that might be necessary, A few diiys.ifjo be', staled that
hewould be willing to supply twenty new ones imw und'more .w.thty uiij-hi be
required, utthe expense of his company. This is favorable proirres*: for the city
and the people neeil not be alarmed about his doing tliiA whei'Jier. he .gets an
agreement or not; We wish to emphasize the fuel that according l« n-ood au^
ihority his company is under obligations to supply hyuji.mii-j anti 'to kv«cp ihe'in
supplied with a sufficient quantity and pressure of water'for'fire^. protection purposes in any organized Municipality or any unorganized-'commuhity, where he

.   The silly contention that the city "woiild be coi'ipellVd «o huy (lip whole   of the
company's water system if this agreement is not rmilied,' and,that -30%, would
have to he added lo (he price, might be answered hy -saying that if so, the city
would (hen be in a position io sell the Coal Co.'water for the'coke ovens ■ at its
own price. We believe Mr. Lindsey lias business sagacity enough to prevent
such.a condition arising; and the city ol Fernio will never be allowed .a diance
tOjbuy or'control in any way the waler supply for the coke oveiib.v; The inventor'
of this scare-ctow must be a scare-crow of colossal, proportions himself, but according to the best legal opinions there is no- way by which, the.-, company can
force a sale of their plant rfpon the city unless they lirst. get- some kind * of an
agreement with'.the city, hence the one now; before" (he people.// Let - us -i-o
carefully over ihis'proposed agreement once more. Whereas,, number one re-
citesjliat the company has constructed and is extending a water system in Fernie and lhat.it Van Is the exclusive right to operatefor." the te'rni' of ten'years,
whereas three and four siiiipjy recite that it is necessary to- submit the agreement to the "voters in the shape of a bylaw and-that it is desirable that the city
should own the "system within tlie city limits at tlie end of teojears. * T-he ne.\i
paragraph"recites that in consideration of one dollar and oth'er.J considerations
mentioned'further on lhat the company will iigfee as follows:    '•■ -
.Clause or paragraph oiie recites'that the company will have. installed by the
ist oi December an up-to-date water system .withuMhe city limits, with at least
86 pounds pressure, - " ,* •■;*.,    -.
Clause two says the company will permit any and every citizen to connect with
the system'at the street line and to supply water at a rentalequaj to ihe present
rates-charged) and (hat no'water shall be supplied from below the mines atCoal
Creek.-, :,''A,      *       % A       .     .   .-.;-. .    >*-A   L'' "'    "      ^-*
■ Clause three";statcs that tbe company will put-in.-twenty hydrants - free of

"Clause four, states that the company will supply water f-ir Beiw-rs, the amount
necessary,to,be determined by a competent.engiueer whojs.to be chosen by. the
parties A i Y."t Vv .       ■'_   ■ -' " ,   ,;-7',    ,^-i--      "       .'     '
rnclausefive.the company agrees to furnish water for streetj; sprinkling,- at
$10 per month.- --i'*'
the city grants to thc'company" the exclusive right  to supply water  within, the
the water plant. Last Jun« lhe city aslied him if his company would sell their
plant to the city, and if so at what price. His answer was that they, did not
wish to sell, livery move that has been since made hy the company has rendered it more difficult for the city to purchase the plant if it is so desired and we
as a city are today compelled to tight for our civic rights against a- company,
some of the pretended friends of which have said would use all the coersive
power possible to force upon us an agreement which as a city we do not want.
No intelligent-citizen of Fernie desires to oppose either the; Coal Co. or the
'PowerCo, in any undertaking which is exclusively within their own rijrhts or
which does not conflict with thc. interests and rights of the city, and we, fail to
(See in what way tho citizens have deserved to be called unreasonable or unfaii;
in making a stand for rights to which llioy are fairly entitled umler the law au.
the agreement entered into at the time of incorporation.   The silly twaddle ii*
diilged in by some newly-van verted friends of the Coal Co. to the'effect that tin
officers of that institution would do unwarrantable things   to  the  city   if  tin.
were opposed in the water agreement, reflects very little credit upon the intelli
geiice of the authors nr a very low estimite upon their pan, of the intelligeiiii-
of Ihe average Feruie citizen. These oppoueets of the proposition now before th
people aro acting clearly within their right* of citizenship, and we mistake vpi
much theirtompcr if they do not resent any insinuations from whatever sourc-
that hears the least semblance of athreat.   No one ueed fear for quo inorueni
that the Power Co. or the Coal Co. nre going to be so short-sighted ah to met
out vengeance upon the citizens of Fernie liccaus.i they differ fiom thorn upon -
matter of business which'so vitally concerns tho Municipality. v
~" in closing this article we wish to note lhat someone has been prompted by
over much zeal to slate that D., V, Mott is a champion of municipal ownershif
when it suited his ■convenience but a monopolist when his own interest- was ii
the way. "'       ; '      ■        .
Whether this be true or not it'can iiave no bearing upon the question now   be
fore the people, but it so luippens that Mr. Mott w.is about the only man at  tin
public meeting between the board of trade, and the r4.'presentative of the  Powei
company when the basis of lhe agreement betweun the parlies, for iiicorporjitioi
was laid, who slated, that wnile he thought jliat municipal  ownership of lln-
waler system would he right at some-time, yet he would favor arranging  wilh
the company for the supply of water'until the ci'ty. was'in a hj'.ier position to install a plant, provided a mutually satisfactory agreement, could   be  111.iJe.'    N'»
satisfactory proposition has ever been submitted to lhe people  and   rather   than
favor the present proposition, the editor of Tin-: Ledger   will  continue  to "work
for and advocate municipal 'ownership of the waler system instead,   but   if  the
Power company will submit a proposition in w hich they agree to   supply, water
at the rates Hint are .al least no higher than tlie rales in  other places, and  also
agree to allow the city the exclusive right at the end  of  our   agreed   term of
years to;put in and operate its own system without, opposition from lliem there
would be a proposition with two sides to it and it  is   quite   likely-, lhat   many
people that oppose the present jug handled arrangement would support  it even
though' Mott miglu'coiitinue to be obstreperous.'  This zealous  person also desires to convey the idea that Mr, Molt is also favoring  municipal  ownership of
lhe telephone system hut he will have a hard lime finding that man's name on, a
petition asking the city dads to go into the telephone business or to cite a single
individual who has ever heard him say he was in favor of  such   .t   proposition.
We would feel like asking pardon of our readers fortaking'up time in  personal
explanations, were it not for the fact thai'these statements are hinged   upon  an
absolute falsehood which if not denied might, as it is eviJenlly designed  to do,
prejudice some unthinking person whom it is desired loreach through  personal
.feeling, against lhe real interests ofthe cily.    Such Uicticsare always employed
by people who are short 011 real arguments and have a' very low estimate  of the
intelligence and motives which'actuate the people to whom they lalk iir write.
