The town council met in sneclal ses

were read and immediately accepted.
A motion prevailed instructing the
secretary to notify the several compa
nies that the council was willing and
would be in readiness as soon lis the
tickets arrived. Borough Solicitor
lioli an stated for the information of
the council that from what he could
learn it wonld cost ih borough in the
neighborhood of $13,030 for its share of
tbe paving to be done on Main street.
Such being the caso it was evident
that the borough could not at the pres
ent time sewer the town.sinc it would
coat something like $100,000, Mr.
Donnelly seeing the dilemma tbe bor
ough was placed iu for the lack of
funds, stated for the instruction of
those present that there were several
o ipitalislsof the town ready toorganiz.t
a couip my for the purpose and that the
company would be willing to put in
the sewer at a rate of 0 per cent, inter
est ou the money invested, subject to
such conditions as the council might
see tit to impose. Mr. Donnelly took
occasion to say that he was not talking
as au attorney for any compuny,
neituer was no interested any more tbau
he was speaking for the public good.
He further stated bo was not in favor
of any outside company getting the
contract while there were large prop
erty owners who ttood ready to organ
ize a company on the above conditions,
the borough to take the full
control of the same at -each
time as it felt tbe funds would warrant
it. Mr. Heunigan intimated that
the motive back of the scheme was
a mercenary one aud calculated to en
rich the few interested and not tbe en
lire borough, as Mr. Donnelly endeav
ored to make his auditors believe. Mr.
Clifford in order to bring tbe discus
sion to a close made a motion requesting
the capitalists of the town to oj pres
