FORT WAYNE WATERWORKS.

A dispatch from Fort Wayne, Ind., says: “The municipal water plant has reached a point where the common council has had to come to its rescue with an appropriation of $25,000 to keep it from going to the wall. The plant, although operated for years by the municipality, has never paid a dollar on its original indebtedness of $260,000. On many occasions the city has had to pay interest on the bonds. The city from time to time has appropriated money for repairs and extensions. These sums now aggregate about $200,000, all of which came from the general fund. The last appropriation of $25,000 was made for repairs on a reservoir to protect the city in case of fire.”
