Representatives from the Jermyn
and Maylleld council, also the land
commissioners appointed by court, met
In the borough building last night. A.
B. Dunning, jr., stated that he, with
Messrs. Northup and Battenburg,
made a careful Investigation, but could
not make a closed survey, or, In other
words, a correct survey. He also stat
ed that it would not be necessary to
'have a meeting with the two councils,
as court directed them to establish a
line, but he desired to settle the mat
ter amicably. He proposed closing the
survey by two or three methods. Peo
ple have always understood that the
division line on Main street was be
tween tho two houses belonging to Mr.
Depew, but by his survey It brought
the line about forty feet north of this.
Following this lino out, It would
throw part of Mayfleld into Jermyn,
and part of Jermyn into Mayfleld, but
by taking the line between Depew's
two houses and surveying west, It
would a,gree more closely to the two
borough maps. Mr. Dunning also pro
posed that each council appoint one
man, to accompany the surveyor when
he made the survey again. After some
little time, each council agreed to ac
cept the old line on Main street, and
it Is expected that this will Bettle all
difficulty between tho two boroughs.
Mayfleld appointed William AValkcr,
and Jermyn H. A. Wlllman to accom
pany the surveyors.
Shadvvick Lewis, who has been a
resident of Plymouth for some time,
