Sehr Atn was sworn As Foreman of the grand jury. Diehard Rogers Boss role r at the Reading Jroud works drawn As grand juror was excused. The session of court opened with a mild sensation.

The roads he said Are in had condition at Many places being full of Loose stones and in need of impair. The Plank on Bridges were reported a. Unsafe and Index hoards As Down or so badly defaced by time As to be of Little service. The court thought this a serious matter and instructed the District attorney to present a Hill of indictment against the supervisors of the township. The action of trespass brought against the Lorna a ? w. H. J. Blizzard which was a come up for trial at this term has on carried Over to next court. Judge Little decided upon a continuance in order to consider a petition presented by Edward s. Gearhart attorney for the Borough praying that a Rule be granted upon w. H. J. Blizzard to show cause Why the several suits untried and indisposed of shall not he consolidated into Oue action for the purpose of trial. In this connection it May interest our citizens to know that of the several actions of trespass brought against the Borough by or. Blizzard twelve Are still pending. Ali Are upon precisely the same cause of action namely the alleged maintenance and continuance of a certain nuisance in the alleged use pollution Etc of a certain Stream of water flowing through the premises of w. H. J. Blizzard. The first of these damage suits was tried in september 1881, when a verdict was rendered in favor of the plaintiff for the sum of $375. Subsequently actions were tried and disposed of As follows March term 1887, which brought a verdict of $275 in favor or the plaintiff october term 1897, which malted in a verdict of Flo ofor the plaintiff june term,1898,in which a verdict was rendered on october 2j, 1901, in favor of the plaintiff for $590. The aggregate of these verdicts is $1340, All of which has been paid. Add to this the heavy items of Cost incidental to the several actions and it will be seen How dearly the Borough Lias already paid for the alleged nuisance in blizzards run. Or. Gearhart in his Petiti m states that in the said actions brought to a of. 44, 45, 46 and 48 of september term 1901, the summons were issued but 24 hours apart for the avowed purpose of oppressing the said defendant and of mulching it in useless unnecessary and burdensome costs Ami expenses. He reminded the court that a separate trial for each of the twelve actions pending would still further involve a vast Aud unnecessary amount of the Public time of court and still further entail Large burdensome and unnecessary outlays of Money for witness fees and other expenses. Further the petition explained since the last trial the Lyons Drain has been removed which in that action constituted and still constitutes the sole basis of complaint. It was therefore asked that the causes of action remaining untried and indisposed of be properly joined in the same declaration or statement. Hon. H. M.
