\ r MEETING OF WATER_USERS Columbia Stockholders Hold Their Annual Meeting. The anunal meeting of the Columbia Land and Water Company was held at the office of the company, Badillo street, on Monday afternoon last, 449 shares of the capital stock being represented personally and by proxies. The report of the secretary showed that the affairs of the company were in a very flourishing condition, that operations on the new 20 inch well were proceeding in a satisfactory manner and it was expected that from 100 to 125 additional inches of water would be developed, tbna nearly duplicating the present capacity of the plant. There is a good demand for the Columbia Water Company's shares, the price of which has advanced 100 per cent within the last six months. The retiring board of directors, Messrs. F. M. Chapman, T. Johnson, Leo Stumpf, J. L. Motter and J. A. Dolcatur, were reelected by acclamation. The president, Mr. F. M. Chapman, who was unable to be present on account of sickness, sent iu the following report: Covinn, California, March 8, 1909. 1 beg to submit the nunnal report as president ot tlio Columbia Laud and Water Coinpauy. I regret very much my inability to be present at the meeting today, on account of sickness. 1 take groat pleasure in reporting the past year as being one of our very prosperous seasons. The plant has been able to take care of its stockholders fuirly well. We have attended to the wants of the stockholders and kept up everything iu very good condition. We now have under way a twenty- inch well, which will be one of the largest in the valley when completed, and with this added facility hope to materially increase our supply of water. We have been seriously considering the purchase of a Byron & Jackson compound deep-well pump. This is a new type of pump, and we have been watching its workings very olosely. If it proves what is olaim- ed tor-it, it will prove very eoonomi- ^*!4s?=8VJKconditions', and will enable ns to take care of the increased demand of water for many years to ' come. The last assessment which was levied was for the purpose of improving and extending the plant, and for constructing a new well. The increased acreage, that was immediately under the company's plant, has been so great that it became necessary to put In this new work at this time, as all of the stock is likely to draw water in future. We do not hesitate to commend the faithful work of our board of directors, the members of which have at all times made personal sacrifices in the interest of the compai)3 T without compensation, and hope that the stockholders will fully appreciate their efforts. I especially wish to mention the faithful service and untiring efforts of our superintendent, Mr. Aldridge. who has been with the company from the very first, and has do r io all that within his power to satisfy each and every stockholder. I can assure you that at times this was not un erisy task, when some pump or engine would be out of order, or the do- mauds for water greater than the supply, but with the pfUieiJCG O f the stockholders he has been enabled to take care of our peoplo nicely. He, being a mechanic of superior ability, has enabled Mr. Aldridga to handle the plant with the greatest economy. Our secretary, M '. Matthews, has nroved himself courteous, efficient, and faithful in orery way. Your board of directors huve at all times been pleased to have suggestions from the stockholders in order that they might be in the closest touch with their needs. We wish therefore to recommend thut every stockholder lake a pereoiial interest in the plant, believing it to be his duty to take an active part in the management of the affairs of the company. Vety respectfully yuiirn, F. M. CHAPMAN. By per Mrs. F. M.C.
