The residents at the lower end of West Market Street Are up in arms against an obnoxious and Well Gigli intolerable condition brought about by the municipal sewer which empties into the River opposite that part of town. Unquestionably the residents have cause for complaint. The sewer empties into the River at a Point a Little West of the Ark lot. Except at seasons of Low water the Mouth of the big pipe is at a Safe distance from Shore where the water is of sufficient depth to carry off the sewage As fast As it is discharged into the Stream. It has Only been for some two weeks since the River has fallen to approximately Low water Mark that there has been any trouble. Brief As the interval May seem however it Haft been sufficient to Breed a terrible Mennoo one that �9 becoming worse with each Day. The Mouth of the sewer is now at the Waters Edge Aud All about the spot lies a mass of Semi solid matter hardening in the Suu and emitting a stench so vile Aud nauseating that none but persons of the stoutest stomachs can remain Long near it. To assist in draining the sewage out into the River a ditch or artificial Chanuel some eighty feet Long has been dog where the water is Low but this Only imperfectly serves its Parps be. The Jack of current causes the sewage to lie All about the Mouth of the pipe. The consequence is that Day after Day while the River is falling a fresh accumulation is added to the great mass of filth lying on the Shore. Unfortunately for the residents of lower West Market Street the prevailing wind just at this season seems to come from the West and conditions Are such that nearly All hours of the Day they Are compelled to breathe the sickening and disease Breeding stench that is wafted up from the Mouth of the sewer. At certain hours during the Middle of the Day the offensive odor does not annoy Jie Ople living on West Market Street very much let it at other times especially at night the stench is almost overpowering several of the residents tuesday stated that the nauseating odor entered their houses Aud that there is no Way to Escaje from it. Neither do they see any Relief in the near future. The River will let a pretty sure to fall lower and it May not let until six weeks or two months later that there will he a Rise that will bring about bettor conditions. Each succeeding year too will bring a recurrence of the Samo condition. Owing to the sewer extensions made annually the amount of sewage discharged into the River increases each year. For this reason conditions the present year Are worse than last and for the same reason they will continue to grow worse in the future. Two different persons yesterday declared that it was their intention to write health commissioner Dixon inviting him to Send a representative to Danville to investigate conditions in connection with the sewer.

Judge Evans has handed Down a couple of opinions involving cases of considerable of which has been before court for Over two years. The latter Case in which a number of our leading citizens Are directly interested relates to a change of Road in Limestone township the opinion of court being non exceptions to report of viewers. The report is set aside the proceedings the opinion state having been apparently conducted without reference to statutory requirements. In effect the petition represents that a Publio Road was Long since Laid ont and opened leading from Limos Oue Ville to California Limestone township that a part of said Road beginning at a Point at or near the Corner of lauds of Clark Benfield w. J. Baldy and Abram Wagner and ending of a Point at the Corner of lands of said Clark Benfield and Elizabeth Latimer Lias become burdensome Aud that said Road would be much improved by a change of its route Between said Points.

By permission of the court exceptions were permitted to be filed to the final confirmation of viewers within fifteen Days from february 25, 1907. The county commission hrs on the second Day of March 1907, filed seventeen exceptions to the final confirmation of the said report. Exceptions were also filed by Alexander blimey or. From examination of the record paper the court finds the following facts �?o1. That the viewers were appointed by the order of one of the associate judges. �?~�?~2. That it nowhere appears on the face of the petition the base of pro Woodings that tic pc runs signing the same were residents of Limestone township of the county of Montour for even of the state of Pennsylvania. �?~�?~8. The petition fails to set Forth How the portion of the Road proposed to be vacated became a Public Road or was Laid out. �?�4 the petition fails to set Forth any reason Why Tho Road proposed to be vacated has become useless in convenient Aud burdensome. A �?~�?~5. The report of the viewers tails to set Forth that written notice of the time and place for holding the View was served on the supervisors of Limestone township. A the report is accordingly set aside. By the court Charles c. Evans. P. the second opinion relates to the Case of e. S. Gearhart executor &c., is Tamos b. Forrest. Assum sit. Joseph Hartina late of Danville died on november 27, 1892 Testate in his will he bequeathed to his two Sisters Jane a a. Hartman Aud Frances Hartman All his property to be divided equally Between them providing that in Case either of them should die the survivor should inherit the entire estate. The plaintiff s Contention is that the will of Joseph Hartman vested one half of his entire estate in each of his two Sisters both of whom survived him absolutely and that the period of survivor ship As therein fixed referred solely to Joseph Hartman a own death and not to the death of either of his Sisters. The defendants Contention on the other hand is that the period of survivor ship refers to the death of either of the said Sisters and not to the period of Joseph Hartman a own death. The opinion handed Down cites authorities to show that in such cases the gift is absolute unless the person named in the will die in the testator a lifetime. A a death generally is not meant but death in the lifetime of the testator. A the court therefore ordered judgment to be entered in favor of the plaintiff for the sum of $900 with interest from May 29, 1907. Farmers pocket George Cunningham a Well known Farmer of Rushtown an attendant at on end Stone Market missed a sum of Money saturday morning under circumstances which would seem to suggest the present of pick pockets in Market. It is a fact quite apparent that the Farmers Atte Diug Market As a class Are very careless of their Money. Or. Cunningham falling in with the prevailing custom in making change threw the Money loosely in his pockets by far the greater part of it finding a place in the lower Side pocket of his boat. Tho Farmer was Ery Busy Selling the contents of his Wagon. What happened while he was thus occupied he can not say but when his Load of produce was disposed of and he went to take a account of Cash before leaving he was surprised to find his coat pocket empty. Just what sum was missing the Farmer can not say for a certainty but he conservatively fixes the amount at seven dollars. The theory that he lost the Money is hardly tenable under the circumstances and lie is firmly convinced that some one took the Money out of his pocket. His Wagon was backed up to the Curbstone just South of the canal Culvert and up to the time that his Money was missing he had not been away from the spot. Whether the Light fingered person was a professional pickpocket who happened along or some other individual with the instincts of a thief who could not resist the temptation when he saw an Opportunity to get Tho Farmer s Money without being detected of course can not be determined. Certain it is. As shown by the sequel the trick was dead easy for any one who cared to make the attempt. Farmer Cunningham has lost his Money which is much to be regretted but his experience will be of value to others if it will teach them the necessity while in Market of giving quite As much attention to the safety of the Cash in their pockets As to Selling the produce of their .

The verification came yesterday morning when a letter was received from professor Taylor by w. H. Orth Secretary of the school Board in which the former tendered his resignation briefly explaining that he had just received information that he had been elected to another position. The letter was dated at Eagle Niere. There seems to to some reason for believing that e. S. Bream of Gettysburg May be the successor of professor Taylor. Or. Bream was a applicant for the position of teacher of mathematics Aud science in the High school which position was filled by the election of John Kase at the last meeting of the school Board. Or. Bream is a Young Man of excellent attainments and extended experience in teaching embracing High school work. At present he is conducting a summer school.

This number includes the excursion lists who were taken on the train Between Danville and Sunbury. The Grater number were Danville people. P. J. Keefer superintendent of the water works has unearthed a rather bad state of affairs of Beaver Street relating to the Borough water system which shows that the Long four Inch main branching out to the Bennett farm Aud supplying the stove works Aud the big tank of the d. L. Amp w. Rai i Druid company has gone All to pieces apparently from end to end utterly failing to conduct water. It has it Een known for some time past that the main of Beaver Street was in bad condition but nothing like the True state of the pipe was dreamed of. Of last Friday night a break occurred about thirty Yards North of the canal. On saturday morning a Force of men was put to work repairing the break. The water main on Beaver Street was Laid Over thirty years ago and owing to the repeated filling up which has taken place the pipe now lies at a depth of some ten feet. In excavating it. Was necessary to dig through a course of hard cinder. The work was in Progress during saturday Aud sunday and it was not until the evening of the latter Day that the break was repaired Aud the deep Trench closed. No sooner was the pressure applied than the pipe sprang another leak near the first. This rendered it necessary to do All the work Over again. By this time it wet discovered that the entire main was completely eaten up by rust. At Many places the pipe is reduced to a Mere Shell at other places it is full of Small holes. The water maius Laid in other parts of town at even an earlier Date while showing the effects of Wear Are still serviceable. The worn ont condition of the Beaver Street main is attributed to the fact that the pipe lies in a bed of Furnace slag a substance which is peculiarly destructive to Iron farther investigation revealed that the condition of the pipe is the same along the entire Street Aud All idea of making repairs was abandoned. New pipe was ordered and pending its arrival a pipe for temporary Servid will be Laid along the surface of the Street from the Point where the i Rajab Nacorra n t w tank and the stove works. Bot i of the latter have been getting along As Best they could since the main gave out last week. The d. L. Amp w. Freight locomotives have been taking water at other Points so far As practicable leaving what remains in the tank Here to Supply the switch engine. No attempt win be made to dig up the Long line of worthless pipe buried ten feet below the surface. The new main will be Laid at a depth of about four feet. Although an order for four Inch pipe for the new main Lias already Goue in it is no unlikely that it May be countermanded Aud six Inch pipe ordered. The Danville stove and manufacturing company feels that nothing less than a six Inch pipe will suffice to give its Plaut adequate fire Protection. General manager w. A. Sechler yesterday Laid Tho matter before the water commissioners. He pointed our the fact that when the main was originally Laid the stove works was not in existence and Tho demands at the farm were nothing like at present. To e six Inch main brought Down from Wall Street to the stove works last year supplies a plug at the rear of the Plant Aud will not Avail much when it comes to playing on a fire of the West end of the buildings. What is needed the company holds is a six Inch main at each end of the for Sunbury harried at Camden miss Marne Weaser daughter of or. Aud mrs.
