Did Workings Settle Near Mnyfleld

Fifty Feet Water Pipe Burst and

bud .'mother rnvf-In yesterday.
The depression this time Is near the
fitone residence, though It does tint af
fect this property. The settling extends
for about fifty I'eeL and involves the
whole roadway. The street car tracks
Hre also sunken, and it will take tons
upon tons of tilling to bolster tir the
The Uiive-in is about ten feet deep
nnd Is this dentil for the whole length
of the depression. The hole is chusni
like in its aspect, unrl it proved n
danger snot last nisht to drivers who
had not been warned of its presence.
Several of them drove into the hole, or
Mther dropped into it, nnd had close
rsi'iines from disaster.
What Is perhaps the most serious, Is
Hie burstiiifr of the supply pipes of the
Vonsolidated Water company. The
ivutcr thus lei loose found its way Into
'.he workings of the Ihie mine which
inderlie the affected area, ami save
the men who have charge of this wopk
;onslderable annoyance during; the af
ternoon and lasl nisht.
The cave-In of ycstcrdiiv hn been
filing- on steadily for abotil two weeks.
That is. it has been noticeable for that
length of time. The experience which
the residents of that vicinity have bud
with these settlings fills them with ap
prehension, and yesterday when the
drop took place their fenis were real
ised. The last cave-in made a sreat deal
of work for the Scrnnton Uailway com
pany, as il required nearly 100 tons of
earth to fill the hole. The depression
that exists now will require twice that
number of tons In make the road pass
able and place it in a condition of
Mine settlings are nothing In this
vicinity. They have ,issed the stage
where they are considered as surpris
ing. The wrinkled surface of the earth
and the succession of depressions in
the adjoining Held speak lids fact more
strongly than the mere telling of II. In
all this section, the territory overlying'
the workings of the Krln Is unexampled
for depressions and veritable chasms,
the consequence of settlings or work
ings abandoned and otherwise.
