After many tedious and exasperating
delays tho $35,000 worth of sewer bonds
have been taken by tho oilglnal high
bidders, Denntson, Pryor & Co., of Cleve
land, O. The bonds wcro yesterday
signed by the borough oftlcors and deliv
ered into the custody of the First Na
tional bank. All that now stands in tho
way of work un tho sewer belns started
at un caily date is the possibility that
the council may have to light Injunction
proceedings, which may bo instituted to
restrain them from building the sewer
according to present plans. Tho inten
tion now Is to only construct a main
tiunk sewer from a point on East Drink
er street, near Gibbons' hotel, to tho
terminal near the Green Ridgo colliery.
The manner and time of putting In tho
laterals Is an open mutter which Is In
tended to be lctt to tho wishes of tho
property owners on each street.
Thero In much objection to this plan as
It will not Insure any added healthfulness
or cleanliness to tho property that may
bo sewered if sewerage from his neigh
bors Is still to be curried in tho ditches
It is also argued that the wholo town
cannot bo taxed to redeem bonds, tho
proceeds of which were used to benefit
only a small portion of tho town. Of tho
amount now to be realized over $1,000 has
already been spent In preliminary work
by tho viewers, surveyors, etc.
