hitherto liable or recently serving who have become exempt, and all needed information will be given.

Those who have not answered as to their liability, or proved permanent exemption, will receive a “ jury en­rollment notice,” requiring them to appear before me this year. Whether liable or not, such notices must be answered (in person, if possible, and at this office only) under severe penalties. I f exempt, the party must bring proof of exemption; if liable, he must also answer in person, giving full and correct name, residence, etc., etc. No attention paid to letters.

Persons “ enrolled ” as liable must serve when called or pay their tines. No mere excuse will be allowed or interference permitted. The fines if unpaid will be en­tered as judgments upon the property o f the delinquents.

A ll good citizens will aid the course of justice, and secure reliable and respectable juries, and equalize their duty by serving promptly when summoned, allowing their clerks or subordinates to serve, reporting to me any attempt at bribery or evasion, and suggesting names for enrollment. Persons between sixty and seventy years of age, summer absentees, persons temporarily ill, and United States jurors are not exempt.

Every man must attend to his own notice. It is a mis­demeanor to give any jury paper to another to answer. It is also punishable by fine or imprisonment to give or receive any present or bribe, directly or indirectly, in relation to a jury service, or to withhold any paper or make any false statement, and every case will be fully prosecuted

NUM EROU S APP LICA TIO N S H A V E BEEN made to this Department by citizens claiming

reductions or rebates on bills for water supplied througn meters, on the alleged ground of leakage caused by de­fective plumbing and worn-out service pipes, or by willful waste of water by tenants allowing the faucets to be turned on in full force in water-closets, sinks, etc., with­out the knowledge or consent of the owners of the prem­ises.

The main object of the use o f water-meters is to enable this Department to detect and check the useless and un- warrantable waste of an element so valuable and essential to the health and comfort of all the citizens, and this ob­ject can only be accomplished by enforcing payment for the water wasted.

Under the law all charges for water supplied through meters are a lien against the respective premises, and the law therefore holds the owner o f the premises re­sponsible for the amount of water used or wasted.

Notice is therefore given to all householders that, in all further applications for reduction of water ren a, no allowance will be made on account of waste of water occurring through leaks, from defective service pipes or plumbing, or wasteful use o f water by tenants or occu­pants of buildings, though such leakage or waste may have occurred without the knowledge or consent of the owners of the buildings.

House-owners are further notified that whenever their premises become vacant, and are likely to remain vacant, they must notify this Department in writing, and that unless this requirement is complied with no deductions in extra water rents will he allowed for any portion o f one year.
