After friendly utterances regard

the people think thcro Is too much
time ahead of them to bo In any

The plumbers think that there is
enough work ahead to keep them
busy until after the time limit of
July 1, set by tho council, at which
time all tho houses In tho sewer
district shall be connected to the

them until after that tlmo to get til
of tho work done, If they were to

Another thing that Is agitating
the minds of those of a sanitary turn
Is tho practice of tho peoplo who
have already made the connections,
of simply filling In tho old cesspools
nnd vaults with earth without clean
ing them. This practice, It Is
claimed by the engineers, Is detri
mental to tho good health of the
community. It has como to tho
pass now that tho wells ire fnst by
Ing contaminated by the seepage
from theso sources, and tho water
is becoming dangerous to use. It
Is claimed by them that all other
cities, when they put In a sewer
system, require tho cltlzciiB to havo
the vaults and cesspools pumped
out nnd cleaned before they are
filled In by the owners, and It Is
hinted that the matter will be
