A. Picnic is always Oue of the biggest events of its kind ill this Section of the state not Only the old soldiers and their families attending hut also sons of veterans and Kindred organization besides Many outsiders As the invitation that is extended is general. The Susquehanna District is composed of some 21 posts. The executive committee has already been at work on tie arrangements for the big Day. The newly elected a a a commander of Pennsylvania Comrade Gierst of Easton will be present also a number of Bis staff and the newly elected state commander of tie sons of veterans. Present at the meeting were president Haas of Northumberland vice president John Osier of Shamokin Secretary j. C. Miller of Danville and comrades Caldwell of Milton Van Gaskins of Sawokin Bucher of Sudbury William Berwick damage suit. The Yeager damage suit against the Borough of Berwick on trial at blooms Burg during the Piast we Eek came to a close yesterday with a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs for $3,500. The Case attracted a Good Deal of attention and will stand As an object lesson for other boroughs a bowl ing the necessity of properly protecting All dangerous places. The trial was a very hard fought Oue with Janies Scarlet of this City for the a plaintiff and Fred Ikeler of Bloomsburg fur the defendant. The a plaintiff in the Case was mrs. Clara Yeager who is a sister of mrs. George w. this City. The Accident in which injury was sustained occurred september 4, 1904, on front Street while a Jia lenient was being Laid before garrisons store and Heller a Saloon. While the work was in Progress an opening where a cellar door bad been removed was tem Sirur ily covered with a Board and a Box the later being placed where the Hoard did not reach. The Board was either kicked away or the Box was removed with the result that mrs. Yeager Niass ing along that Way at night fell into the of Jiening and was seriously injured the jury West out on tuesday of the Roou. At 9 of clock a it in. The jury came to an agreement. The verdict according to instructions was scaled. The associate judges opened court yesterday morning when the verdict was Ope Neil and read. The jury awarded mrs. Yeager $3,225 and lir bus band Wilson Yeager $225corn or does not seem unlikely that there May he a Radical change ill sewer rates in Danville raising the Tajo Page fee somewhat and wholly eliminating the annual rental. The general effect would i to lower the Cost of using tin Borough sewer. Heavy pressure is being brought by the Jiro Perty owners to effect a change in rates and Council it would seem is pretty evenly divided. At the last meeting an Oji Ilion of the Borough solicitor was read which ail Vised against such a change. At the same time it was decided by Council to take the matter up and to investigate it in All its bearings. In a few Days a joint meeting of the sewer committee the committee on ordinance and Jio Lioe and the Borough solicitor will he held to decide whether or not a change shall he made in the sewer rates. This May result in a wholly new Ordi sauce relating to sewers. At present in addition to the Taji Page fee of ten dollars additional yearly charges Are made for each Connes Tion which Are in part is follows for each dwelling store Shioji. Or office three dollars per year for each Rohlic Hall each restaurant or bottling works five dollars per year for each hotel ten dollars in a year. The highest yearly rental is for breweries Twenty live dollars. It is to the yearly charges that objection is urged. These together with the tajik Page fee it is claimed make the Cost prohibitive with Jie Ojile of moderate Means. The idea is to eliminate the annual charge and to raise the tajik Page fee. A reasonable limit of $25 or $2,o would to Sot for the latter so that while the Advance of tajik Page fee would to some extent compensate for the loss of rental the Burden of the a Iron Katy owner who availed himself of sewage would be materially lightened and lie would not for All time to burdened with a heavy rental. No one can to Coli jelled to connect with the sower Exco Jit where it can be shown that without such connection the Jire Mises becomes a nuisance. Only those voluntarily make connection who can afford to Jay any Jiricek for the luxury As one of the members in favor of a hanging the rates put it a a tax is thus Jda ced Union Good sanitation with the result that the splendid sewer which was designed for general use is limited to a few. It is True that at each meeting of Council there is one or More applications for sewer Extension. But it is shown that while two or More who Are generally the Jirrine movers get onto the sewer As quickly As possible the rest of the signers Are slow enough in connecting and often do not connect at All. If is held that with the yearly charges out of the Way and with a Tajo Page fee fixed to cover merely the Cost of labor and material in making the connection the sewer would come into general use and would be As a Mipalar in the second and fourth wards As it is in the first and third wards. It would not lie Long before the sewer would begin to Jay for itself by the increased Revenue from the water department due to the increased numbers of hath rooms and like conveniences that follow in the Wake of the sewer. Those Oij miso to the change of sewer rates Advance Many arguments. Any ordinance different from the present they urge would not he fair to the citizens of those wards into which the sewer has not yet extended. These citizens having none of tin benefits of the sewer should not lie expected to Bear the Burden which rather should be distributed among those who directly share the Benefit. It is especially urged in defense of the yearly charges that these Are needed to meet the alter expenses of extensions and of keeping the sewer in floor causes had fall. Mrs. G. F. Smith Mill Street met with a singular Accident about 4 of clock last evening As the result of which she was obliged to take her lied.

Hartruft Henry w. Shade i. Riffel b. C. Dennin and 0. E. Shires. A Constitution was drawn us it and adopted. There were about one Hundred share holders Jere sent at the meeting and an enthusiastic and progressive spirit a pervaded the proceedings that indicated that Progress will continue to he the watch word of the come Tauy in the future As it Lias been in the past. The company now Lias an extensive system in Ojie ratio taking in parts of Montour Columbia Northumberland and Lycoming counties. There Are 188 subscribers. 130 phones Are installed on 18 lines and construction work is under Way nearly All the time. George y. Mourer 1. L. Gruber Aud Asa Dei Ley supervisors of Montour township Columbia county Weie arrested tuesday eve for neglect of duty. The information which was lodged by Samuel Harman of Bloomsburg charges the above Fujier visors with neglect in keeping the roads of the Tow ship and especially the Road Between Evans farm and the county line near Grovania in proper Rej air. The Sujie visors waived a hearing before Justice of the peace Jacoby at Bloomsburg at 7 of clock tuesday and furnished Hail in one Hundred dollars Lor their appearance at court. The stretch of Road from Evans farm to Grovania runs parallel with the trolley track and those who have not had the agonizing experience of driving Over the Highway have no doubt noticed its condition while Riding in the trolley cars. The condition of the Roadway has been much commented upon. For Long stretches at a time Limestone unbroken has been dumped on Trio Road. The Stone in All sizes from that of a Brick to a cobble Stone lies spread Over the surface of the Road. The plan of the Thrifty Sujie visors is of course to follow the time honoured custom and let traffic break up and Wear Down the Stone. By this process of course a very Good Road is finally evolved although it is very hard on the unfortunate people who Are obliged to use the Highway for the first three months or so. It is not strange that in these Days when the tendency is toward Road improvement that a general protest should he entered and some method of Road urged that would conform with the requirements of the Law. The automobile its especially Are the loudest in their protests As the Road in its present state is practically prohibitive to rubber tires. It is stated that the a twists Are Hack of the Lirose cution Aud will Viress the matter until the Road is jut in better shape left behind were no. 8 Box calf Aud had a stumpy work Ajjie Araluce exceedingly suggestive of a Hobo wearer. The stockings were nearly work out and were saturated with water. The shoes were stained with mortar Aud there were chunks of the same adhering to the heels. This fact gave Rise to the theory that the burglar was a Workingman hut during yesterday it was discovered that during monday night some Oue had walked through the mortar Box at r. S. Ammermann a new barn almost in the rear of the shoe store where there is to Light sufficient to make the Way Clear. A tub of water near by showed where the person who had stumbled into the mortar had attempted to Cleau off his blocks on River Bridge. The Story from Catawissa relative to the bulging of the wooden pavement on the River Bridge As the result of the frequent radius which is printed in these columns elsewhere has a counterpart in a clipping from the Harrisburg Telegraph of june 19th, which describes a similar defect in the wooden jiving of Bine Street that City. Bine Street Harrisburg was paved by the United states Wood preserving come Tauy the same firm that put Down the paving on the River Bridge at this place and also at Catawissa. While the Jia lenient on the Bridge Here is tier factly sound and intact revealing to sign whatever of swelling As the result of Many rain the wooden blocks elsewhere it seems act quite differently. At Harrisburg the swelling and the consequent bulging was Moie marked if possible than at Catawissa. At the Corner of Bine and court streets the pavement bulged us three feet. A touring car while passing Over the damaged portion tuesday afternoon broke through and it was necessary to lift the car from the Hole. As a result of these unfavourable reports a close watch is being kept on tin jiving of our Bridge by a Good Many persons hut 11 p to the present not the least evidence of any such a defect can be detected. The Creo res in ated blocks used Here seemed to he of perfect Quality. They were so heavily charged with the ingredients that they readily Sank in water and every Block that fell overboard from the Bridge while building West to the Bottom of the River. It was charged at the time the paving was put Down on the Catawissa Bridge that the blocks were lighter than those used on the River Bridge Here. The whole affair is not discouraging to Danville As it serves to establish that our handsome Bridge is first class in All its Jiaras. in the a id the Beni Sylvania steel coins it a will build five of the largest open Hearth steel furnaces in tin world at its works at Steelton.

Pritchard. A delightful even aug was spent after which a supper was boldest of burglaries one of the boldest burglaries Ever committed in this Section took place in this City monday night. The shoe store of Andrew so hat z situated in the heart of town and fully equipped with a burglar alarm was broken into at half past eleven o clock with the Light dimly burning in the store the thief carefully selected forty three pairs of the most valuable shoes and after changing his own shoes and stockings which he left behind he gathered us his Booty and escaped leaving to clue to his identity. When John Kirgus entered by the front door tuesday morning he i at first much mystified he the apr a Arance of things. The first thing he encountered were several empty shoe boxes where lie least expected to find them the next thing that attracted his attention were several shoes that had been dragged out of the window Aud were lying on the floor. A glance around revealed More empty boxes and As the truth that burglars had been at work began to Dawn Union the Man lie entered upon a tour of investigation which resulted in finding an additional a it Ile of empty boxes in the Hack room and discovering that the rear windows had been broken open. The burglar had carefully selected his Booty and the manner in which he went about his work would indicate that he was no stranger of the j re to rises or at least was familiar we Atli the value of shoes and the ways of shoe dealers in arranging their goods of the shelves. Forty three pairs of shoes at least were stolen and these were selected from the entire Stock of goods a couple of pairs being taken from the shelves at Oue Wilace another Jirair from the shelf above Aud so of until there was not a shelf in the entire system around the store room that yesterday morning did not reveal gaps where shoes had been taken. The burglars Booty included fourteen pairs of menus Fine shoes the rest being women Saud misses shoes. Or. Schatz estimates his loss at about two Hundred dollars. The surprising Jojart of the whole affair is that or. Schatzl store is fully equip Ted with a burglar alarm that the alarm West off in regulation style Aud that notwithstanding the fact the burglar was enabled to proceed unmolested. Every night a Jim leaving the store or. Schatz is careful to connect the burglar alarm after which it is Imp Gissible to of it eur any of the doors or to raise any of the windows without the alarm going off. The alarm was in Good working order monday night. When the burglar West in at the rear windows it went off Clear Aud distinct. Hon. S. Ammerman who resides of Oue Side of the store and Register and recorder Vav. L. Sidler whose property adjoins on the other Side both heard the alarm. It was then Only half past eleven of clock aug a neither of the men associated the alarm with a burglar at that hour but thought it must he or. Schatz himself belated at the store who caused the alarm to sound. The burglar must have relied wholly upon the Early hour of the night to disarm suspicion otherwise with the burglar alarm heating its Lively Tattoo in front of the store he probably would not have ventured to enter the store. As it is the fellow must have been a Man of infinite nerve. Once inside the store he a proceeded in the most deliberate Aud leisurely was selecting ouly such goods As lie wanted even Craw ling into the window in full View of pedestrians still passing Aud taking Liis pick there of the fancy foot Wear of display. That he added to Liis recklessness a sense of humor is revealed by the fact that lie sat Down Anil took off his shoes and stockings evidently Reni lacing the shoes with a pair from the store. The burglar succeeded in forcing an Entrance through the windows first by breaking the slats which enabled him to Rea it i through and unfasten the Blind. Next by Means of a Jimmy he forced the window upward. A desk stood against the window on the inside and this the burglar in gaining admittance Jiu shed to one Side. In Leav ing the store the burglar passed out the rear door which was easily unfastened from the inside. The door i Rosier he closed after him but the screen door usually fastened was left swinging open. Whether there was More than one burglar or not is a matter of a doubt. Forty three Jia irs of shoes would constitute a j re try Good la it Al for Oue Man but there is no evidence that one Man a lid not get away with the Booty. As to the burglar there is no Drift Wood in the River. One fact brought out by the rising in the River this year is that the a lays of Driftwood Are past As to More Timber is seen running with every slight Rise As was the Case in years gone by. The scenes of years ago when Boatmen by the dozen made a business of catching Driftwood Good lumber Ami Timber of All kinds which came floating Down Are recalled and the question is asked Why is there no Driftwood in the River at the present Day this is explained in the fact that the Timber along the River is All cleared out Ami there Are to More lumber Camps. Then too it is sail that the ice Gorge and floods of 1904 so thoroughly swept the Bauks of the River that there is very Little Brush logs Ami rubbish of to be Suejit Down with each slight Job printing the office of the being furnished with a Large assortment of Job letter and fancy Type and Job material generally the publisher announces to the Public that he is prepared at All times to execute in the neatest manner.

Hartman a silk Mill in Riverside Are now rapidly approaching completion and the unt inish cd Structure is becoming quite a conspicuous object visible from Many different Points.
