Workmen While Digging
Septic Tank in Rear of
Hotel Redmond Blast
Down Into a Subterra
I ji M Saturday while workrmn
were drilling through ns-k in the
rear o f the Hotel Redmond where
excavating for a septic tank to
carry off the sewerage from the
hotel, an underground cavern
The workmen had gone down
1H feet through solid rock and
drilled drown through u distance
o f about ten feet more. A heavy
charge o f dynamite and powder
won put in to looaen up the rook
and when the charge exploded
only a dulll sound wax heard and
no n»ckx were throw n up. Inatead
a heavy pressure stream o f cold
uir came up through the inch and
a half pi|a* that was in the drill
ed hole. The distance to tliflxit-
tom o f the pi|a* waxalxnit thirty-
live feet, ikiul tlie mip|toxition is
that a aubterranean cavern was
pierced by thi* dynamite explo
sion and the charge went down
ward into the cave. That ia the
reason given why the explosion
could barely be heard.
The Jones I .and Co. think they
have the problem of serweage
from the hotel solved ami will
test the capacity o f the under
ground cavern they pierced with
the drill and explosion.
K. T. Redmond, proprietor o f
the Hotel Oregon, located across
•>th street from the Hotel Red
mond, is o f the opinion that he
can strike un underground cavern
and has been granted permission
by the city council to ls»rc in the
alley in the rear o f his hotel to
try and locate one.
Some o f the |>cople who are
well acquainted with the forma
tion o f this section are o f the
opinion that the cavern that was
encountered by the workmen
for the Jones l^tnd Co. is one of
the wind caves that are located
in different sections in the west
ern part o f the county.

tween Redmond and Sisters w as
