money subscribed to push the suit against
the South Fork Fishing Club met to-night,

of the Old Wnter Work Pond.
AIlextown, September 6. The heavy rains
of several weeks ago washed away a portion of
the old waterworks dam and the question
whether it shall be rebuilt or not is agitating
the public mind at present. Three ears age
Allentown was visited by an epidemic of typhoid
fever and malaria.
At that time tho leading phjsicians of the

setting forth that they were unanimously of
the opinion that the vegetable growth in the
dam exposed to the rays of
the suu produced the miasma which
was carried by the south winds which
prevailed at that time for many consecutive

awa of the dam and allowing the river to re

Here matters rested, however, ana the health
of the community was jeopaidized until the
late flood. The question has again been re
vived, and tho feeling against rebuilding the
dam runs high, as,the city has no turther use
for it and its entire removal is regarded as es
sential to the health of the city.
