E. Sheldon, representing tho interested parties Appeared before the city council with a petition n.ikfng for permission to erect «nd malntnin, or maintain existing water tanks and etandplpcs, or such additional water tanks and standplpcs as may be necwsary and convenient for the purpose of providing additional fire protection to the factory district and emergency locomotive water supply for the two.railroads which pass through Sterling. Permission was also asked to lay and maintain water service pipes In and upon or across the following streets and avenues of the city of Sterling: First avenue, between Lawrence Bros, and the National Manufacturing Company; Wallace street, between the Sterling Foundry Company and the Novelty Iron Works; Avenue B, on the Chicago and Northwestern Railway company's right of way, and Avenue B, from the south line of said right of way to, at or near the southerly terminus of Avenue B; Bass otreet, from C. and N. W. right of way to, at or near the southerly line of the Charter Gas Engine Co. On Mutoal Basis. The petition declared that tho plant and pipes arc to be Installed, maintained and operated on a mutual basis for the use and benefit of the petitioners as may desire to co-operate In the enterprise, or such others as may want to join in the proposed plan. It adds that it Is not the purpose to establish or operate a public utility, or an organization for profit. The signers of the petition are Peerless Level and Tool company, National Manufacturing company, Charter Gas Engine company, Franta Manufacturing company, Lawrence Bros., Novelty Iron Works, Northwestern Barb Wire company, Sterling Foundry company, Chicago and Northwestern Railway company, **HE rMMG^ "STERLING" fac'ory district on •?* of th* rlwr He statTl th»t. the Intf'nisfionftt Hsr- vr«trr rnniptnv JIBS twd tindor ton- skirration for ?onw> tlrn? th*> build- in ft rtf a itefydpip? nf s»t;»<j'it 7ft.PM capacity, Tid that it was th* compftny, along with o-tiers In Rock Falls, may desire to co-nj)*rfttc in the- plnns for the M- ?ab!)«hrripjit nf a vJ«nt.

These con- fr?rns, said Mr. L-one, rso doubt will prefer joining in 11m proiyj^d for a centra! plant for mutual flM of «ii subsrrlbfrs. Mr. Long states that nothing definite has been decided anrt no engineer's estimate has be?n obtaln- p<l on the proposed, improvement, as tnis trouble and expense would have been useless until permission had been given by the city for the establishment of the water plant. However, he ventured the opinion that 100 foot standpipe would furnish sufficient pressure to meet any errorfeivey. No details as to the operation have been considered, he added, but it is possible that the necessary machinery for the operation of the plant would be available in any one or several of the factories. However, it may be ultimately decided to construct a 'separate power house. Asked if the proposal to construct, operate and maintain a water plant was Induced any way by the announcement of the Illinois Water Company's movo to put a 50 per cent higher rate for service in effect here, Mr. Long replied that It was not; that the plan had been under consideration tor some time before the new rate schedule had been filed However, Mr. Long 'stated that If exorbitant rates became effective here, the concerns Identified with the proposed new water plant would bft In position to equip their plants and places of business for full service and not be dependent on the Illinois Water Service company. of tbs in Wednesday rnrun- in th« Morfsn P*rT :? continue ov»r Sun trhirh will Ifif »l 9 JM.'
