WILL GET PURE WATER.
The city of Wilkes-Burre will derive
a blessing from the consolidation; her
people will get u supply of pure spring
water and the water now furnished
there will be utilized solely for steam
ami Hydraulic purposes. The three
principal companies affected by the
transfer are the Spring Brook Water
company, supplying all the towns and
villages between Mlnooka and Ply
mouth; the Crystal Spring Water' com

and the other companies have In like
manner a certain number of smaller
concerns within them; that Is how there
are twenty-six companies represented
in tins enterprise.
The price paid for the entire property
Is $3,:.1H),U00. The stockholders of the
Crystal Spring company, of Wilkes

stock, and there being 8.800 shures the
amount was. I57:!,0OO. The Hoatinir debt
of the company amounting to $213,000
was paid and the bonded debt of S.'loo

relating to this transfer were ex

Negotiations Vere opened up with

some time ago. They will receive their
water as soon as the chanue can be In
troduced from the Spring Brook for do
mestic purposes and the supply now
furnished to Wllkes-Barre will be util
ized for steam purposes. This will not
involve the consumption of anv mor
water. There is enough of supply dis
tributing to Wllkes-Barre to supply

new auu snares of stock Issued there
for. Bonds to the amount of $5,000,000
have been floated, and $1,000,000 of this
will be kept In the treasury to make
improvements, build additional reser
voirs, new pipe lines, and they intend
putting In at once an immense pump
ing plant on the Susquehanna river
above where the Lackawanna river
empties Into It at Coxton. This Is to
be relied upon In case of on emergency.
Larger storage reservoirs will also be
built. The work on the Improvements
will begin as soon as the weather per

So great Is the confidence of men of
capital in the stability of the enter
prise that in Wllkes-Barre alone there
were applications made for $;00.000
more stock than was placed on - the
market and offers for over $400,000
worth of bonds at the syndicate price
were also refused.
