The Amuse-U Theatre has advertis

City Council Decides to Submit Ques
tion to People-Should be
A joint meeting was held on Mon
day night between the city council
and the commissioners of public "rts
to consider the proposition of exte.-d
ing the sewerage system of Newberry.
It will be recalled that sometime
last year the grand jury in their pres
entment reported the septic tank as a
nuisance and a menace to the health
of the people who live in that com
munity but no action was taken on
account of the understanding that the
city would at once do something to
have the nuisance removed.
In order to do this it will be neces
sarv to issue additional bonds and
while the septic tank is being remov
ed the sewer system should be ex
tended to those-sections of the city
which are now without it.
Sometime last year the commission
ers of public works had a survey
hnade and plans for the extension of
the sewer system. The city council
appropriated $600 for this purpose.
It is said that this survey and these
plans will not answer the purpose,
and it is probable .that a new survey
and ne4r plans and specifications will
have to be made.
At any rate it is absolutely neces
sary for the health of this community
that the sewerage system be extended
With this condition before them the
city council and the commissioners of
public works decided to circulate pe
titions asking for an election on the
issuing of $40,000 in bonds for this
purpose. These petitions will be cir
culated among the freeholders of the
community in the next few days and
no one should hesitate a moment to
give his endorsempnt.
If the election is ordered there
should be no opposition to it what
ever. It is a case of necessity.

Last year there were nine persons
