John B. Conway, Vayor of New erlses: hBi-The weekly summary statement of the finances of these works is herewith inclosed. Also copies of two important communications to the Beard of Conitasloners on the subject of water supply and water rates, to which the board asks the special attenion of the Common Counoil. Cases of appeal on account of water rates have been frequently mset to this oee recently by nladividual members of tbh Council, and I am desired to ask attentiao to the fact that a oesamonicatioa recommending a reduction of these ates was made to this board on the 5th March last, approved and sent to the Commot Couacil, asking a concurrence. This ofoee ta not been aetiaed of any action, and this board does not now feel anthoriued to aot. If the Coneoll wllJ approe that reeommendation, or refer the subject back to the Board of Water Commilsionasmwith authority to act, an immediate and are edciloa it the water rate will be made, apc la as well to those who have Sto thore who Pnot ppd for this year. I am, sir, very re,,etflly, yamr obedient serv't, BanxpN Baaeo, uperinntendent. Osxn e WAvs Wous, ew Orleans, April 7,1869. To the Preeldmnt ad f t ommflssloees City Wsater wore:s (Gesnent--You presented herewith am abstract of the me remeants of water delivered in the first quarter o this year by meter: To make a fair d ust showing, they have been placed in farform, by which a omparison an be made sot only of the rats charged this year, but also o those paid by the same partis last year. The results are so nd exhrnordisa. ry as to induooe me t ask your specilal attention and crautiny. They Ro to show the entire oorrectaess of the principle • which you acted in estab lilahing your raters, Is: to maike them uniform, and though the resuol is not yet stisfactory, the small consumer stil paying too mouch In proportion, you have *e a long stride in the right direction. A few more applic~tions of the meter, now being made, will enabh you to do fall justice to all partiee. These meeremeP t fully develop the eausoe and the ani~ of the ent amisrepresestations made both othe city government and the public. The large distiller for instance,. that received its water last year at tro and nine tenth ceits, for 1(00 galloos. now p e twentyoents for the same supply. CPer contrt the poor laborer or widow, who paid rinety c last year, now gets the same allowanoce for fprty cents. The large steam b ery. which pai!d only eigh. teen cents last yeal whilst his small neighbor paod eighty, is now put en am equality with the latter. The one bels put up and the other down to a medium. But tie greatest contrast is to be fcnnd in the larger establithmentsa. In the three Irge sugar reftlneries, one paid foumr and ree'te'ils a'ents for 1(00 grallons, another three and t(ro tesnts rents fir 1·00 gallone, and the third and largest one and fourfeaths cents for 1000 gallons. Here was a dms crention of more than three bncdred per cent ag t one man and in favor of an other engaged in tl same commercial business. Yet this is cal!ed " otectina commerce," and a correction of this ors discrimination is denounced as "deteri lng commerce." This one establlshment, Mr. omon's Refiery, usee more water than three ousand sma·ll families. Yet they paid last year CO, whereas the wealthy consumer paid S 10 Such monopolie are not to consonance with e fair and just views of our people, and will not e tolerated when once exposed. Just 15 per at of all the water that fis paid for, is now en by five large consumers. Yet they have here fore paid only two per cent. of the revenne. It is due toMr ooodale, the owner of the smallest of these re seriesto my that he candidly acknowledsged the f rams ad Jstice of the increased eharge at him, sd only olamer to be put on the mae with othre engageod is the easme trd . Mr. , these moond redasry, hasu also very fully yielded to facts ad figures. Not so Mr. Thomes, of the Cem cent BRelsWy, ho ver. Every artifice and device lhasu been avo ed to postpone and evade a fair setlment IdLg t the neessity, permislos hasat leat en gi toput on the necesmy wi wibe e eassooas the castl egs ca be pea . The oae le with tIhe proprieter of this establishmet, she me very stan sad Inexplicable assertio d dealals, totlly aoonslt ant with each other ld with existio acts, whioh Uill d li beo ye at amy tme he may deire. Bet-4 view or the feet-sta he ba werblty expressed a willingas, now, for the placing ofithe meters, It is deemed uoneoessary to refer to the matter In greater detail. No system of assesment or calculation can be perfectly uniform, except that of the meter; but the application of this instrument is not practiosble, on account of its oust, to very smlli oOeamaers. A fair discrimination, too, is proper, when it is appllgd In favor of the large consumer on the general principle of wholesale and retail, and also owing to the fact that the cost of delivery to the small consumer is higher for 1000 gallons tha to the large ome. The absolute cosa of delivering water here. taking the expenses of 1568 a a basis, and calculating the value of the werksu as appraised............ ,000.000 At 6 per cent. would be for fnterest.... S 10).000 Operating expenses and repairs...... 80,000 D-terioratlrn in works, 5 per cent. on par value................ ...... 75,000 $ 256,000 Delivering 2,227,000,000 gallons, as was done last )ear. the cost was just eleven cents and a half for 1000 gallons. The los by waste and that consumed by the public and not paid for would add at leaut 40 per cent. to this, thus mak!ng the cost about sixteen cents for each thousand gallons taken by paying consumers. The working of the meter, so far, gees to show that a still further reduction may hereafter be' made in the water rates, but In justice that reduction should enore almost entirely to the small consumer, until he is brought nearer an equality with his more fortunate neighbor.
