company on the mountain emit of tho
city, and at Klnihurst. They were ac
companied by Colonel 13. H. nipple,
Kobert Ileeves, superintendent ot the
company, and representatives of the
The first visit was to the high pres
sure reservoir at Dunmore, which sup
plies the high places ot the. city, and
has a capacity of storing two million
gallons. From there the party went to
the other distributing reservoir at No.
7, which has n capacity of eighty mil
lion gallons, and from which the great
er part of the city Is supplied. Tho
straining system at this place was ex
amined with much Interest, and the
general condition of this reservoir and
the manner In which the wnter is
drawn from It to the different parts of
the city wns minutely Inquired into.
The next point visited wns the gieat
dam at Elmhurst, with a capacity ot
fourteen hundred million gallons. The
retaining walls on either side of the
dam have within the last few months
been raised from two to five feet to
prevent damage to the Delaware, Liick
awanna and Western and Erie tracks,
such as happened during the floods ot
last spring. Above Elmhurst toward
Lake Ariel, Is the Oak Run reservoir,
with a storage capacity of 320 million
Into the Elmhurst reservoir can also
be turned water from Lake Henry at
Moscow and the headwaters ot the Le
high river, assuring a never falling
From Elmhurst the party crossed
the mountain to the Williams bridge
dam, which during the year was raised
five feet and its storage capacity in
creased seventy million gallons, mak
ing the total capacity 3G0 million gal
lons. The high pressure reservoir at
Dunmore is supplied from Williams
bridge and Lake Scranton, which was
the next point to receive attention. In
that body twenty-six hundred million
gallons are stored.
The Inspection was highly satisfac
tory to the officials who expressed
themselves as greatly pleased with the
condition in which they found that part
of the city's water supply. The com
pany owns ten thousand acres of land
to protect the water shed from which
it draws Its supply for the reservoirs
Before returning to the city the In
spection party went over tho new
roads leading to and from Mt. Anony
mous, a high peak overlooking Lake
Scranton. The roads are about two
miles In length and are about the best
yet laid out by tho Gas and Water
company. The" view as the roads wind
up the mountain Is magnificent and
prepares one for the grandeur of the
view when the summit is reached.
Gravelled paths have also been laid
out to make it easy for pedestrians to
reach the summit, where a fifty foot
observatory is to be built. Altogether
the Gas and Water company now has
fourteen miles of roads In the region
about Lake Scranton, which are not
surpassed by any roads In this part of

A Point to Insist On.
There are endless numbers of travel
ing people who go regularly from New
York to Chicago and vice versa several
times a month, who have never gone
over any other road but tho Luke
Shore & Michigan Southern, because
this road Is good enough for them, It's
good enough for anybody, the fastest,
safest, most convenient and most com
fortable road in America. Once you
travel over the Lake Shore and you will
not want to experiment with any other
road, People who know tho comforts
and discomforts of traveling, and what
they have a right to expect, always
insist on their tickets reading by way
ot the Lake Shore. So should you.

THAT LINDEN STREET SEWER.
Why It Is Flooded When There Are
After a several days' absence from
the city, Director of Public Works John
10, Roche wns yesterday back at his
office In the city building, attending to
n mnss of routine business, which had
accumulated, while he was away. In
discussing the Hooded condition of
some of the ultv streets on last Tues
day, Mr. Itoche declared that these
conditions did not at all substantiate
the theory advanced at the time that
there wns 11 paucity of sewer basins,
notably on Linden street.
lie does claim, however, thnt what Is
really needed Is the additional sewer
system on that street, which wns pro
vided for In the city bond ordinance.
An appropriation of $30,000 wns made,
but owing to the refusal ot Huyes &
Sons to take tho bonds, the prospect
of a new sewer Is postponed. Said Mr.
"None of the basins were blocked
Thursday, and the sewer was doing Its
full duty, but was unable to cope with
that rainfall, which wns the heaviest
of the season.
"The sewer Is only supposed to carry
off one Inch ot downpour in twenty
four hours, and on tills occasion we
had elghty-flvo one-hundredths of an
Inch In thirteen minutes. In view of
these conditions, no nddltlonnl number
of basins would have at all affected
the situation. The sewer could mot
enrry away more wnter than It did,
and the cxccrs ot courso had to find
"Additional basins are, however, a
necessity, under ordinary conditions,
for keeping tho streets' In proper shape.
I certainly cannot see In tiny event,
why this department Is to bo censured
for a luck ot tho proper number of
basins, The appropriation given us
docs not make any allownnco for the
building ot basins which properly
conies under the head ot Improvements.
The only Item wo are given consists
of an allowance for repairs and clean
ing. Thut this appropriation Is pretty
well exhausted, without any further
drain upon It is shown by the fact thnt
we have an unexpended balance of only
$1.81 from last year.
"Councils must take all action tor the
creating of now bnslns. We need live
new ones in the Fourteenth ward, at
