The funeral occurs Tues day morning at 10 o'clock, R«v. Brown offleiating. Answer to Mr «nit. In answer to the difference of opinion about the size of sewer pipe for given purposea, as long as we as a city have never had any general system of sewerage, we have to accept the experience of other cltiea of our size that have been working under eome general system. Take for instance, the engineer's report of the sewerage system of .l.ieksonville, Florida. .Where the general or main sewer entera_lrito the St. John River, something like ours enters into Rock River will give ua a good idea of the defec'a in the syatem. The main trouble met with there was to get the catch basins of the right construction to keep them from filling up with mud and debris £after a big rain storm. They also found it necessary 10 build automatic water tanks at the head of some of the feeders to the main line. In our case we have a 10 inch pipe to carry the water from our buildings and a 10 inch pipe to carry the surfnce water to the catch basin in the same block. The surface drainage haa an independent opening into the main; if that is not enough, give us enough to satisfy each individual. About the writer's conundrums, I don't see what that has to do with the subject under controversy. He might as well .continue and ask why did the N. W. R. R. build a depot with a headgear that is not surpassed and then aiick it down out of sight and spoil the effect of the work. Or, he might inquire whythe architect on city building placed a chimney under the tow«r. It certainly ia no ornament to the building and it appears to me if we wanted to get smoke out of it It would to be done with horse power. Begging pardon for intruding a subject that has been over talked, I will close by admitting to be squelched, but not convinced that a lagrer sewerpipe ia needed at the piint eo much talked about. J.
