The Water Problem.
It is needless to extemporize on the
necessity of an abundant supply of
water for a community. Norman, for
several years had this important ques-
tion before its pec pie, with the prob-
lem still unsolved. The past and the
present council have always been
handicaped by the limited means of
obtaining funds, unhappily also; the
bondfloater is in evidence, with ex-
treme plans that meet with public
These conditions, existing is in a
large measure responsible for the
present shortage and the system in
the past of casting around for tempo-
rary relief and forgetting in time of
plenty the necessity of providing for
the dry times that are sure to come.
The public at large discuss the
question thoroughly, every man hav-
ing a theory of how to obtain plenty
of water and individually wonder, if
that damn council is going to get any

defeated. The Democrats in the
territory now hope for a similar re
action to take place in the new coun-
ties organized in the new country
opening up to settlement. The re-
action will doubtless take place;
but in view of record made for ex-
travagance in the strip counties by
Democratic officials, it certainly re
quires supreme gall on the part of
Democrats to presume that settlers
in the new counties will be such
chumps as to replace Republican
plunders with Democratic plunders.

The writer having made himself fa-
miliar with the subject, is settled in
the belief that the enlargement of
the present well is the only solution
of the prob'em. Going to Bishop's
springs or the river, results in finding
exactly the same kind of water,
namely; sheet water that we have
surrounding the present well. The
writer knows of wells over nearly all
the level lands of the Indian terri-
tory, and the general conditions is the
same, when yot reach a certain level,
you find sheet water that in dry times
sink, in wet season rise, and the only
way to get water is to have reservoir
capacity below the level of the top of
I the sheet water so that it can collect.
To go to Bishop's springs or the river,
! the same conditions would be found,
that are here. First, the How would
be strong, like the present well, then
a,tera certain area is drained it would
j become weak. If a reservoir is con-
structed that will furnish storage ca-
pacity and kept pumped below the
level of the sheet water top, it is evi-
dent that the area of drainage " ill be
I increased, until there will be sutlicient
water for all purpose, as proven by
the present well, that we are just
about at the top level of the sheet
