It is hoped that at the next meeting
of the council something will be done
in regard to sewers. A chartered com

promising to begin work within a woel;
and to employ all meu idle on account
of the hard times. At once the council
decided to sewer tbe town and the rant
ter now rests. It is said they did not
know how to proceed. Now that this
obstacle has or can be remedied w
would snggest that some stops bo tnksn
at the next meeting to begin the work.

Between 8 and 1 o'clock yesterday
morning the abandoned reservoir of
the Pennsylvania Coal company, taxjd
by the recent heavy rains, bnrsted its
I. auks on the oast si te and the huge
volume of water for a time gave the
appearance of n second Johnstown
flood. The reservoir is situated on the
bill and the velocity of the wator, as it
rushed down Piano street, carried
everything portable before it. The
wator Id its mad rush tore up the
streets and tlnoded the Langcliff a
Coal company's tunnel, and tho
shaft of the Avoca Coal com
pany, known as the "Last Chance.''
It is impossible to investigate the dam
age to the wi.rikugs of the mines, but
it is thought it will taks several days
to dear away tho debris so that work
can be resumod. The reservoir is quite
large, being about 1.300x1100 fast, and
from o to 12 feet deep. It was con
structed by the Pennsylvania Coal oom
pany to supply the boilers at No. 8
plane and vicinity, but since the grav
ity road was abandoned the company
has not used it. The Hillside Coal
company of late years has ussd it to
supply tho boilers at its works. The
flood causod much excitement for a
time and uot until it was learned that
no hnman lives had beon sacrificed did
the residents feel relioved.
