As stated saturday the territory is by no Means Louveni Eutzly located owing to the fact that the route from Sudbury cuts into it very deeply reaching a Point within three Miles of Danville. Another drawback lies in the tact that a great Deal of the territory and especially that embraced by tuesday s drive is made up of Large farms so that while the need of free delivery would seem to be just As great the number of Bouses and of inhabitants there do not run up very fast. In this respect there ate some grounds tur Baring that the Sec oud of the two routes May not come up to Tho requirements of the Law. Post master harder is working to secure both routes.

The meeting was held in the court House at one p. In. Both the Pennsylvania and the p. Amp k. Railroad company have placed themselves on record As being in sympathy with the adoption of plans looking to tin Relief of the Ico situation and the n co operation with the counties is looked tor As soon As some practical plan is evolved for making a grand assault upon the ice Gorge Between Klin Grove and Berwick. The first proposition considered at the joint meeting was that of Alfred Cole whose scheme was simply to build a dam at the Bead of a h ice Gorge and to cause to Ltd water to flow or the top of the Jam which Accord ing to coleus theory would have th1 effect of inciting the ice. The plan was Given do consideration hut a tinally dismissed a altogether impracticable. Frank it Reay of Berwick appeared before the commissioners with a proposition which was regarded with More favor. His plan was to install tanks of Petroleum along the River whore the ice is gorged Aud to pipe the Oil onto the ice where the Jam the thickest and offers the most resist Atice. He would fill the urge hollows on the Ico Gorge with Petroleum and set it on fire. He would feed the flame with old Railroad ties and other Wood that would easily Burn at intervals adding More Petroleum so As to keep up a fierce continuous fire. The beat or. Creay believes would be sufficient in a very Short time to melt the Ico enough to open a Channel or. Creasye a plan was discussed at length each of Tho different hoards being very favourably impressed with its practicability. Or. Creasy today will Lay his proposition before representatives of Tho Penn Sylvania Aud p. Amp r. Railways. Should the latter be impressed with its practicability it is believed that they will consent to make the Experiment demonstrating the Success or failure of the so Limo. Assuming that the railroads will test the matter Tho commissioners at the joint meeting yesterday decided in Case the plan proves successful to Quito with the Railroad companies in an attack on the ice b tween Berwick and Sudbury each county obligating itself to Bear its pro rata share of the expense.

None of our industries have been crippled worse by High water than the planing Mill of Hoover bros., South Danville. With the exception of about a week to Plant has been unable to run for upwards of a month. The water has not entirely receded from the basement of the Plant where when the flood was the highest the water was five feet deep. The engine was wholly submerged. What water remains in the basement is covered with a coat of ice several inches in thickness while All around the Mill outside about i lie same state of affairs exist the masses of ice making it difficult to get anywhere near with horse and Wagon still Hope for our Bridge. The pessimistic View held at Bloomsburg and Catawissa As to the safety of the heavy Iron Bridges Over the River at those Points has inspired a feeling of grave solicitude Here for our own Bridge when the Spring flood makes its final round up and the ice Gorges above us break Loose. The majority of people seem to take the least hopeful View possible Aud regard the Bridge As marked for destruction. There is still room for Hope however Aud while our Bridge in All its history May not have faced conditions precisely like those prevailing at present it is not at All unlikely that it will he Able to maintain its supremacy when it comes to its final bout with the ice. Tho fact is not to he concealed however that the Bridge is in danger and that were it to he swept away its loss would be severely Felt not alone in Danville but throughout a wide see Tiou on the opposite Side of the River. All things have very nicely adjusted themselves to free passage Over the rivet. The wage earners employed in Danville suffer no inconvenience or loss through a residence in South Dan. Ville or Riverside. The Farmers Aud dairymen of Gearhart and Rush townships since the Bridge was made free have become accustomed to driving to Danville. The demoralizing effect upon our Market alone would he something to he deplored but it would by no Means end there. The loss of the Bridge would be Felt Here in every department of Trade and business activity. It is Well therefore not to indulge too much in the gloomy View but to Hope for the Best. Surprise party.

According to the gentleman s Story some Days ago lie Cut a Hob through the ice and found it to to thirty three inches thick.

Owing to an error of the part of the Luzerne Cou duty the Republican ticket was not represented on the ballots furnished for the municipal election at Heseop cd. The result is that a special election will in All probability be required to elect to Borough officials.
