Your committee on Fire & Water, to whom was referred the petition of C. W. Borlis and others, asking that a water main be put in on Division St. and Drexel Ave. of sufficient size to give fire protection to that vicinity; have carefully investigated, and find that the district depends for water upon a two inch main; we find that the supply comes from the Broadway pumping station, and that the district described is at a very high elevation. Broadway station at the present time does not furnish anything like what is required, and complaints of insufficient supply are continually coming in. On that account we believe that to lay a larger main as the petitioners reqeust would not afford the protection required, as it is very evident that the Broadway pump has more to serve than its capacity will properly provide for. We believe that the request of the petitioners should be carefully considered, and that provision should be made to meet their needs at the earliest possible opportunity; but to place a six inch main in place of the two inch now in use, would not in our judgment give permanent relief.

Your Very Resp
Seattle. Wash. Dec. 18th. 1893.
To the Honorable The Board of Public Works of the City of Seattle
Your petitioners, citizens of Seattle and many of them among its heavy tax payers, would respectfully represent to your Honorable Body, that the New Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Spring and Fourth Sts. is nearing completion; and that the side-walk on both above named streets, is old, worn out and unsafe for further use.
They would represent that the dedication of the church will occur in about three weeks, when many persons will attend; and that the church will thereafter be permanently occupied. The basement of church is now temporarily used.
Your petitioners, would therefore pray, that your honorable dody at once order a new walk to be laid down, on Spring and Fourth Streets, in front of said church, , that danger from traveling thereon, be removed.
