The City Water plant remained
high and dry during the recent rains
that sent the waters of Fishing
Creek out of their banks and into
flood state inundhting much land for
hundreds of yards on either side.
The floods of last September cov
ered the plant and male the water
situation a grave problem for several
days in the city. Superintendent P.
E. Williams presented to the coun
cil a plan to prevent further danger
from high water and the council ex
pended $5,000 :o carry out this plan.
The high waters of la^t week and
this week failed to stop the opera
tion of the water plant and while a
flood was feared, the precautionary
| methods employed saved tho plant
from high wa‘.cr damage.

“Baby E-oat) Plan” for Paving
Upheld in Ccnrt and Protest
Must be Made Fifteen Days
After Work is Ordered
In a ruling handed down last week,
the Supreme Court decided that all

litigations within fifteen days after
the work is ordered, or be regarded *
The petition filed by R. L. Wall
and C. F. Fowler last week to pre

property to satisfy a paving assess

under the "baby bond plan” attracted
attention to the ruling.
The paving in the city was begun
about two years ugo and was finish
ed b?t Juno. During that time only
one protest was filed, the records
show. The city fathers contend that
they have adhered strictly to the law-
in every respect and that property
holders will huve- to pay the price
assessed against their property with
