If seems held different i is As to where the new heat Light and Power p ant ought to be located have Conn to an agreement concerning the site the new heat Light and Power Plant will he located at the rear of the main Hospital building on the sire at present occupied by the lumber Vard. There were some things to recommend the site for the heat Light and Hewer Plant originally selected at the Coal dump West of the Hospital build bugs not the least of which was the fact that fuel could be uploaded directly from the cars into the Coal bins that feed the boilers thereby eliminating the expense of re handling the Coal As might be necessary if another site were selected. Among the disadvantages taken into cons id Rati on by the trustees was the fact that the Coal dump is about Oue thousand feet away and that to select that joint As a site would be to necessitate the construction of a massive conduit Between the Plant and the buildings through which to transmit the heat Light and Power that would involve an immense amount of work and would eat up a considerable slice of the appropriation of $91,000. In addition to this it was a question whether there would not he a loss or waste of Power in carrying steam and electricity so far. The outcome of the matter was that the site at the rear of the Hospital was selected for the heat Light Ami Power Plant. The contract for the building will be awarded of Friday when the building committee of the trustees will hold a meeting at the Hospital for the insane. The heat Light and Power Plant will be of Plain one Story Structure 107 feet Long and 59 feet wide. It will be built it it ii i substantial Stone foundation. Work for the Street sprinkler. Happy springtime is Here the season of in dding vegetation also of Dusty streets. We Are just now passing through that Brief though vexatious period that lies Between the inclement weather a f Early Spring and the limit of possible freezing before the Street sprinkler has gone into commission and while the Sun and the wind and the traffic of Busy wheels conspire to produce dust a lust that blows into peo i pie s faces that blows in through the doorways and windows and soils the furniture dust that becomes worse with each succeeding a Lay and from which there seems to he unearthly escape. Where is the Street sprinkler. Many persons have asked this question during the last few Days. Ask the firemen who previously assumed the contract to keep Down the dust and they will or ibid la t. La you that the water superintendent has not yet caused to he a a rooted the stand pipes that Supply the Street sprinkler with water. Ask the water superintendent and he will Tell you that until the limit of freezing weather is reached it is not Safe to erect the standpipes As the water might freeze which would cause the pipes to burst. There seems to be but one Way out of it in this unhappy period and that is if we Are it confronted with a lust to Grid and hear it. In the present Case however there is Consolation in the fact that we have about reached the limit. A leading member of the Friendship tire company last evening stated that there is Little danger of freezing after this Date and judging by what he advanced the Street sprinkler is looming up in the distance and in a very few Days it will be on its rounds again.

There is a slight mad a log scan in the Vicinity of Strawberry Ridge As tin result of which Charles Reeder a Young Man of that place May go to the Pasteur Institute for treatment. The Young Man bitten is the Sou of George Reeder a prominent resident. The bite was inflicted quite two weeks ago by or. Reeders own log. The exact circumstances of the Case have not Lieen Learned but it seems that there was something about the dog that aroused suspicion that lie might have been afflicted with rabies. The wound was cauterized but As time wore on All things seemed to i causo a feeling of disquietude and in order to allay fears at the suggestion of or. Shuman the family physician it was decided to Send the head of the a log which had been killed in to veterinarian j. Reed the local rep rest putative of the state live Stock sanitary Board. When or. Reel rec Ives a that a logos head he immediately forwarded it to Philadelphia for a bacteriological test by or. Leonard Pearson the state veterinarian. Or. Reed i yesterday received a letter from state veterinarian Pearson report ing Progress. The dogs head he said was in such shape As to exclude the practicability of the microscopic or speedy test and made it necessary to resort to the slower test of inoculating rabbits to ascertain whether or not rabies was present. At almost Auy Day a report based on the Rabbit Experiment May 1m received i from the live Stock sanitary Board. Meanwhile the state veterinarian advised or. Reed that if in his opinion the a log showed symptoms of rabies it would be Well to have the Young Man bitten to take a course at Tig Pasteur Institute without delay. Just what course would be or. Reed yesterday could not staff. Fractured knee Cap discovered. A most remarkable Cash was brought to notice yesterday when it was discovered that a Young Man chafes Foust of Danville who was Hurt by a fall last autumn had he a a ii a existing for the past six Mouths with a fractured knee Cap totally unaware a it of the serious nature of his injuries.

The most horrible Aud the greatest earthquake in american history occur re Al yesterday morning at san Francisco and the magnitude of the horror seems to grow with each succeeding bulletin. It destroyed Telegraph and Railroad facilities. There were a succession of shocks Many of them of great destructive violence and the messages indicate that a Large part of the City a business Section has been razed to the ground and the it la Bris is of fire w without Aden irate water protect Ion to fight the flames. Other bulletins indicate a loss of life that cannot be measured in the confusion attending the cataclysm. The a Arrhe quake shocks ceased at. 8 30, Eastern time having commenced at 5 13. And it is probable that the worst is Over so far As the movements of the Earth am concerned. But the awful fir it fiend still remains to be reckoned with. Panic has reigned in the City since the first Shock none know ing we Hen another upheaval might Render them hurl about them buildings of tin sort that have already fallen. The worst feature after the Earth a Jake shocks had passed arose from the fies which broke out simultaneously in Many parts of the City and seemed to he Spie Diug in every direction. Late messages indicate that the flames an fast approaching the magnificent docks Ami wharves for which the Harbor a it of san Francisco is famous Aud that these May fall victims to the devouring monster which broke water Mains and destroyed fire apparatus. The most alarming part of the dire event is that each succeeding Telegram increases rather than diminishes the terrible news. San Francisco april 18.�?san Francisco was partially wrecked by Artl quake at 5 10 this morning. Shock Lastell three minutes. A thousand buildings damaged Aud destroyed. Loss of 1 if reported great. No water and fires All Over City. All wires except Oue gout. City Hall costing seven millions in ruins. Modern buildings suffered less than Brick and Frame. Terror and excitement indescribable.

The greater damage was done to Buie Lings South of Market Street where mostly they Are Frame Aud tenement houses. Fires occurred in every Block in that District. 8 a. the confusion which re Igus everywhere it is almost impossible to learn details of the disaster caused by the earthquake this morning. In general it May be said that the District lying Between Market and Howard streets from the Bay As far West As the City Hall has been badly wrecked. The hotels in the Vic nity of third and Market streets were badly shaken up but there seemed to be to loss of life. The a Call Quot Aud Quot examiner Quot buildings As Well As the Western Union building have been badly wrecked.

New York april 18.�?the strike situation looks a Larker today then at any time since the of Erato it is and a miners representatives have been holding conferences. The operators have pre it ared a letter to the miners aus we ering the miners demands for arbitration in which is said that there is nothing to arbitrate claiming that All questions were settled by the previous strike commission. The reply is lengthy. In Oue place it says Quot you Are rest it fusible for the suspension of work. There was no Good reason for ordering the men to Stop work a lending our negotiations which had been delayed by you especially in View of the fact that we were willing to continue to pay the wages fixed by the strike a nothing further to offer Quot in conclusion the letter states be have no other suggestions to make than those contained in our former propositions and we regret that you have declined both of them. We have nothing further to Mitchell wont accept. Ludiana k Lis ind. April 18.�?it is believed b those close to president Mitchell who is Here attending the soft Coal miners convention that he w ill refuse to accept As final the Anthracite operators letter rejecting the miners offer to arbitrate the different questions in dispute and that he will demand that another conference be held to try Aud reach a settlement. All that Mitchell would say for publication this morning was Quot we have not reached the Anthracite matter he was not a Little surprised at the action taken by the operators in making their Fiat refusal. It is the belief of Many that the operators will refuse to hold another conference As they state that their reply is final. Brick Yards in operation. John Keira has already begun the work of making Brick for the season All four of his Brick Yards having started up. Some Brick were made 011 Friday but these later were damaged by the rain. Yesterday the season opened in Earnest Aud taking in All four of the Yards or. Keim has some Twenty five men employed. From now of except when the weather is Rainy each of the Yards will be in operation every Day. A Little later of two additional moulders May be put on a hic i will increase the combined product of the kilns very much. Pending tie adjustment of difficulties Between the Coal operators Aud the miners or. Keim is Uncertain As to what measure of Success May attend the seasons work. Should there be a shortage of Anthracite Coal it will he impossible for him to Burn Brick As his kilns Are not adapted to bituminous Coal and Wood suitable for the purpose Here has become a commodity so scarce As to be practically out of the question. Or. Keim is now engaged in shipping Brick in Large quantities 500,000 going to Bloomsburg Aud 100,000 to Sunbury. With the cessation of imbuing Over the Anthracite Region a with the consequent refusal of the operators to ship a Pound of Coal from the mines Aud with a miners strike of greater or less duration Oue of the probabilities of the immediate future Danville like Many other towns of the state As far As the �1 nest Ion of hard Coal is concerned faces anything but a cheerful Outlook. Simultaneously with the shut Down i the shipment of Coil at the Miles Ceas cd. U you in jury yesterday it was j Learned that not one of our local Deal i ers is Able to procure a Pound of Coal. The orders placed by the local dealers Are acknowledged but there is no Assurance when they will to filled. The card employed by the d. L. Amp w. Company in acknowledging the receipt of orders has the following stamped upon it in real Ink Quot All orders subject to ability to ship Aud to prices when shipment is made. A a no one doubts that affairs in the a Oal Region Are Drifting on toward a prolonged miners strike and naturally under the circumstances there is curiosity to know just what surplus Coal the dealers have on hand. In All the Yards Here it is practically the same. The dealers Are busily a Gage Liu i Liing the big orders placed during february Aud March by local Consumers who had Means for purchasing a big Stock of Coal the room for storing it Aud were astute enough to foresee that a clash Between the miners Aud operators was unavoidable. It May take some weeks yet to deliver All the Coal previously ordered and until this is done it will be difficult to Tell just what margin May remain to meet the general demand. The dealers however feel morally sure that by the time they have their orders All filled the a Piantiny of Coal 011 hand in their respective Yards will not he Worth taking into account. All of which implies that unless some unforeseen circumstance occurs to prevent a miners strike before the summer is half Over Danville will be without Coal in the dealers Yards. It is True by exercise of Wise forethought probably hundreds of families have their cellars filled hut there Are hundreds of others those who Purchase Coal in smaller quantities As they consume it who will need Coal and will be unable to procure it therefore while a miners strike might not bring about exactly the same conditions Here that prevailed three years ago yet there would be ranch inconvenience and privation. The heavy Snow which fell during March was indirectly responsible for the fact that the local dealers have not a larger Supply of Coal 011 hand. It was during this time that the dealers planned to Rush out their Coal to fill the Large orders of hand thereby gaining space in their Yards which they hoped to have filled by additional shipments from the mines to Supply future demands in the Spring and summer. The heavy Snow however blocked the streets or rendered them nearly impassable with slush Aud mud either holding up the work or making it impossible to deliver Coal with ease or facility. The consequence was Quot that before Auy considerable space was gained in the dealers Yards affairs Between the miners Aud the operators reached a crisis Aud the mining of Coal ceased. Local dealers have poor Hopes of receiving Auy Coal from the enormous surplus stored up by the Railroad companies especially if the strike should continue very Long in which event the Coal will All the More Likely be needed by the corporations for their own use. Least our and will Over tie several More automobiles. It is altogether Likely that a luring the coming summer several automobiles will be added to those now in commission in Danville Aud immediate Vicinity. The fact is known that there Are several prospective purchasers Ami it will probably by Only a Short time until the new machines Are in evidence. It is also rumoured that at automobile will be for hire be run in any a direction out country roads at so much per hour. A la popular route it is believed will 1m found to lie in the direction of Wasli in Gronville and Strawberry Ridge which have always proved favorite objective Points for Hack parties and others when out for pleasure.
