(..eiiulnuiNl (Him Page I.) tanks li) my estimate. If they were lined a large number would be required, probably loo. This would add probably *-.HI0.to the cost of the system. It is probable that a juiore economical plan for this town will lie to flush tiiim hydrants, or possibly at some IMilnts from u watering cart. Probably flushing once a month will generally be sufficient, u.ud the interest on 13000 will more than pay for the labor. The plan proposed fur providing the necessary funds is as follows': The six Inch sewer is- the smallest size- used, und this is taken as the basis for assessment. All property reached by constructed sewers must lie assessed for the cost cif tbat size, of course one half lieing |iald by property on each side of the street. Wherever it is necessary to use larger sizes on account of a collection of sewage the adjoining property pays for a six inch sewer only, the excess iu cost lieing paid out of the bond issue. The outlet sewer will lie paid for out of the same, also ilUVtligine-erilig and legal t-N- jHinscs. , • The amount'Of bond issue, if the* division is made us here outlined, is »20,- 000. .The entire cost uf the system when complete Is estimated at 960,000. The amount of assesment will therefore lie $40, OIK). The total frontage being about 1011,000 feet the cost will be about 2T, cents per foot front. Of this IHO.OOi), however, only a part will need to be raised and expended now. For instance taking the district between Everett avenue and the creek It is probable that very little sewer-rig will new be needed. The) mi'tliiid of assessment is very definitely laid down in what Is known as the "Voorman Act.'* This provides for street-crossings, etc. and frontage assessment in a given district is generally not absolutely uniform throughout the district. It is probable that the rate given above would not at present prices be exceeded, in some situations it might be sligh11 y less. . As for work done in future* years of course the assessment must to a certain extent de-js-ud -upon prices then current. Coll is P. Huntington has donated to the Statu University a very valuable e-ollectio'ii of books and nuiiniscriiits about California. There are about 4000 separate documents dating from 1782 to the present ttmei Those relating to the period before 1840 are In Spanish. and tho collection is said to be the most important of any extant, except the I liiiici'oft library of California books. In Kansas thu women convicts are compelled to break stone the same as men. Equal rights and "equal punishment is the idea.followed there. It is |>er)iaps a bettor rule than prevails in this State, where a mawkish sentiment excuses a woman before the law for any manner uf wrong doing. The government has sent the cruiser Oregon to Hawaii to relieve the Philadelphia. If necessary other warships will he sent; it being tbe policy of the administration to show Japan that this country is in earnest regarding annexation. N. C.
