“J.A. Gage and Capt. John “Jack” Wright were using city water without paying for same and contrary to orders passed by Council on July 8, 1912, it is ordered by the Council that the water superintendent proceed to collect water charges from all parties who may be using water.”
Obviously, I could be wrong about just who Capt. Wright of this article is. However, I’m betting that the man in the photo was the one who along with Mr. Gage was using the water.
