" The adjourned meeting, of property
owners and ratepayers, called to discuss
and arrive at a conclusion upon the
waterworks question, „was held on
Thursday evoning in the opera house.
On the platform wei-e Mayor Stork,-
Aldermen Cree, Trites'' Wallace and
Robins, andD V. Mott,'A. JoyceiO. N.
Boss and L- P.'Ecksteiu.
..Mayor Stosk opened the meeting,
announced Its- object,and emphasized
the fact*that the council was simply
acting as public 'servants and it was for
tbe 'ratepayers to decide. He invited
any ratepayer .to addross the meeting.
_. _>. V. Mott waB the first speaker. He
reviewed- tbe proceedings since;the
secret mooting, and.defended himself
and the other signers of the notice
calling a public meeting. -It was not a
want'ot confldence in the city council,
but acts of. public, officials were open to'
criticism and he and others had a perfect
right to call them down The flrst
breaeh of etiquette occurred when the
council,- who had .their'mandate from
the people, had listened to the voice ol
1 the tempter, and gone- over to the
manager of the Coal Co.. and Aid.
Robins had dumped this nines of stuff
into Lindsey's lap. The t. ropositions
were unworthy of tho council's'consideration aiid if they were uoVfireparod' to
carry out the wishes o£ the people they
should roaigu. The Coal Co. uot only
wants the, free franchise forteh years
but. wants-pay for acce-Hing it. They

"fertile is involved in another controversy, in whioh tho principle of
municipal ownership of public utilities
is* involved.   Last time it-was a ques-
tlon'of telephones; this time of water
supply.   Why there should, be--any
doubt or hesitanoy in Buch a matter
is a puzzle to outsiders.   Public utilities owned  by, private • corpoiations
are a delnsjon and a snare.    Of '.all
these, water is the" moat important
and indispensible.    Fernie1-has"already paid $500,000 to find; out that,
company water is not available  to
quench fire  when  required.     The
strongest objection,, however; to the
scheme proposed—apart from its violation of the principal  of, municipal
ownership—is that theCoal Co. retain

miner h'adl bf-errsluicing out the gold

less than a' dollars worth and other
days five'times as much. The uncertainty was discouraging,' but he" had
experience 'enough to know that the

washed must' be somewhere ia the
vicinity, so lie explored the valley, but
without result., Then"lie climbbd the

Montana also contains the Granite
Mountain mine,- which was" supposed
to consist of surface ore. The' shrewd
superintendent noted indication-; which
red' him to* believe that another, ore
body lay beneath. The mine^"Qwners,:
however, disagreed, with hifri and. he
began investigations for himself when
the , veins* appeared to be exliausted.
On the very day he received a telegram
ro' abandon the claim he made a discovery of the lode beneath. The telegram he sent hls_ employers caused
thern, to give him carte blanche inothe
way of spending their ipon?}' to reach
the ore.' It Was a- n>a\tec. of history
that' the wealth of this mine has erected
