Tiie requisition when received last july was accompanied with instructions to the effect that it should be recorded. The last Council at no time seemed in favor of complying with Liis request the prevailing sentiment among tiie members seem aug to be that by Sach action Council would be committing itself to construct a sewage disposal Plant at a time when Tho Bor Dougli is not in circumstances to stand such an expenditure. Toward the close of tin Council Mario year or. Dixon state commissioner of health satisfying himself that the permit or requisition had not been recorded sent a communication to cont in asking Why his order had not been carried out. Pur Suant to instructions from Council or. Dixon was informed that the requisition had been Laid on the table and he was begged that the matter might be permitted to rest a few weeks longer. Until the new Council came in. This was the Statos of the affair when Borough solicitor Gearhart at the last meeting presented a communication explaining that he had Given the matter most serious consideration nod was constrained to suggest that definite action he taken it once. He suggested that an Effort be made to get an Extension of time beyond the first of july next placing such application of the Solo grounds of Lack of funds furnishing or. Dix on with some details of the limited taxing Power of the Borough to show that Council is disposed to comply with All reasonable requests the solicitor urged that the re it Iii Sitison already received should be duly recorded As required by the department. Tiie state department of health is making similar requisitions of other Pennsylvania cities and towns located on in Olio streams and the Borough solicitor fails to see that any substantial advantage is to be gained by further failure and refusal to record the re a Luisi Tion. He admits that the state itself through the Hospital for the insane is polluting the River also that Public sewage disposal is yet in an experimental stage of development but these facts he assures Council. Would not Appeal to the state department of health. The solicitor concedes that sewage disposal is the most stupendous and intricate prob Han Itiat has Ever yet been submitted to any Council of this Borough Aud As such he declares a it should receive the most thoughtful consideration at onco and before the staff department of health is led to a further exercise of the arbitrary Power with which it is vested by continuing the solicitor states a it must be very Clear that if this Borough is compelled to prepare the required plan and completo the sewage disposal Plant without any Extension of time in will not have one available cent for Street paving or other substantial improvement. The most deplorable fact of All is that the car rent expenses of operating the Best systems yet devised even after their plants Are constructed is bound to paralyse the financial resources of every municipality afflicted with such a Burden. The Mere Cost of operation of wage disposal plants has staggered the wealthy City of Williamsport and has put the sewage disposal Plant of the City of Reading out of commission entirely. A Tatto Trotalli summer oort convened monday morning at 10 of look. His Honor judge Evans and the two associates Blee and Wel liver were on the Bench. The of stables of the Donn to presented their returns. Judge Evans scanned each paper carefully Aud then announced that Tipiere seemed to he no violations of the Law All of Shioli lie said was very Gratifying. At this juncture tiie court created Sorn Surprise by calling tiie following constables before court w. E. Young of the first Ward of Dauville William Jones second . B. Brown third Ward Andrew Billmeyer Liberty township Pierce Gearhart Valley township Charles Hollabaugh Derry township Amos Albeck. Valley township. Addressing each Constable separately the judge Haskeil him whether he had complied with tie act of Assembly by visiting each licensed House once every month since the last term of court Aud noting whether or not there were Auy violations of the Law a few of the constables were not sure that they had made monthly visits but they nil Iliad kept an Eye of the drinking places and were quite confident that there were no violations. Judge Evans mildly rebuked the constables who failed to make monthly visits to the hotels and saloons. He told Thorn that they were failing to obey the requirements of the act of Assembly and conus eled them to be More careful to live up to tie letter of the Law in Tho future. Proceeding the judge remarked a it is strange that reports of violations of the liquor Law in the several wards and townships represented should continually come to my ears in Berwick and that Yoa constables w to Are of the ground should know nothing about such continuing judge Evans remarked that lie was constrained to believe Itiat toe liquor Law is being violated every sunday in Danville. The constables assured the court that if Auy violations went unreported it was through to collusion or con scions neglect on their part. Benton h. Brown explained Itiat reports of violations in the third Ward had been made to Itiat in Sacii a ase tie persons reporting the matter had refused to Back up their state meats and he had been unable to get hold of incriminating information from any source. Judge Klaus the constables in snob cases to take tiie name of the person alleging violations of liquor Law and directed that no mat ter How unwilling he might be. Tin informant be subpoenaed As a witness Aud forced to Tell what to knows. The list of constables is As follows Anthony township Arnos Albeck Lime sue township.

It is the purpose of the state department of health in the Presont instance to obtain water from All three soirees and to it it continue the process Day after Day until Twenty four samples Are obtained meanwhile closely observing the mechanical operation of the Plant to determine what degree of efficiency is attained. The state department of Hent i is especially interested in tiie analysis of raw water As the test being made in this relation will reveal to what extent the River is polluted with sewage Aud will no doubt influence tiie state in its action relating to sewage disposal.

In face of these failures and the extent to which our water Supply has been polluted in consequence by the state or.
