FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING Canton, O., attributes the large increase in water collections for the month of July to the fact that a reinspection of services discovered that there were many people using the water who did not pay for it. A further inspection of the southeast district of the city, to be made, is expected to still further increase the receipts. As Canton is a large and important manufacturing city, and its growth has been assured for many years, it was only reasonable to expect water would be used clandestinely if people were allowed to do so. The connection of meters on all supplies was within the power of the city to carry out, and had this course been adopted long ago, there would have been more revenue in the city exchequer and less grumbling of the inhabitants now when they are compelled to make good.
