JERSEY CITY AND ITS WATER.
Mayor Hoos, of Jersey City, has sent a letter to WaterAssessor John Kenny, requesting that he be furnished at once , with a report of the condition of the water account. The mayor also wants to know what water rents are outstanding which should have been collected during the last fiscal year. The water account is depleted, and there is no money with which to pay current claims against it. This is the first time in the history of the city that such a condition of affairs has prevailed. Fersons doing business with the city whose claims are chargeable to the water account are complaining bitterly. The mayor contemplates recommending to the finance board the raising of money on temporary bonds, in anticipation of the collection of water rents, to tide over the present difficulty.
