Joseph Secufski, a Polish minor residing
on "tho rooks" In town, and employed In
Seaman & Graobor's colliery, at Qilborton,
met with a distressing accident while n'
work yesterday, through his own foolish
act. Ho bad drilled a holo and picked up
athreo-inch pieco of dunlin to proparoit
for use. To make an oponing for tho cap
he stood tho dualin on an end and slrui k
tho upper end with tho point of his pick.
An explosion followed and Secufski's eyes
suffered from tho force. Dr. Jamos Stem
attended the man and found the sight of
both eyes destroyed. Secufski is now at

GLEANINGS BY THE LOCAL
CORPS OF REPORTERS.
WHAT THE SCRIBES SEE AND HEAR
A Point That Interests Applicants
lor Saloon Llcona An Amend
ing Aot That Does not
Seem to Amend.
Considorablo oxcitcmont exists among
pobplo of town who havo applied forealoon
Ho nscs for next year and have prepared
their applications under tbo amending Act
passod by the Legislature last Juno.
Tho oxcitcmont has boon caused by a
question raised by T. K. Beddall, Ejq ,
who lias discovered that that part of tho
business transacted by tho Legislature Is in
a muddlod condition.
Tho point mado by Mr. Hod Jail Is that
tho ampndlng Act of Juno 19, 1891, is null
and void, as it fails to amend anything.
An Act of May 18, 1887, provldo3 that
tho suroty on tho bond of an applicant for
a retail liceneo shall bo "no loss than two
roputable freeholders of tbo ward or town
ship where the liquor is to bo sold."
The supposod amonding Act of Juno 10,
1891, provides that the Burety shall bo "no
less than two reputable freeholders of tbo
county where the liquor Is to bo sold.
But tho preamble of this Act recites that it
is an amendment "to tho 6tA and 8tA sec
tions of tho Act of May 24, 1887."
The Actrolatlng to liconsos passed on
May 24, 1837, relates to wholesalo dealers
and has but three sections, therefore the
supposed amonding Act cannot relate to it.
Tho Act rotating to retail licensos,
passed in 1887, was enacted on May 13M.
A large numbor of people in town havo
appliod undor the Juno law, as they found
it very convenient. Some living in one
ward havo securod residents of another
ward as their sureties, while others havo
presented their applications with the names
of residents of other towns as their bonds
If Mr. Beddall's point is hold to bo a
good ono many applicants will bo put to
considerable trouble to preparo now appli
cations. One said to a JIkrald reporter
yestorday : "If that law of last Juno is no
good it will put mo in a hole. I could havo
secured two bondsmen in my own ward,
but I concluded to got a moro Intimate
friend in anchor ward to go on tho bond.

"A CITIZEN" TALKS.
Says a Borough Water Plant
Kditou IlKUALDi I eoo by tho water
company's corrospondont in tho Sunday
Aewsot tho 29th Inst., that tho company
Intoods to; adopt tho same methods they
used ten years ago for tho purpose of mis
leading tho poople. The public meeting
spoken of was attended by 1,000 of tho
best poople of tho town and Mr. M. H.
Kohler, who was unanimously selected as
president of tho moeting, appointed the
gentlemen who are now acting for tho
citizens with the committee appointed by
our councilmon. I cannot soo how Mr.
Kohler can bo charged with sol fish ends.
Ho has dono nothing boyond appointing
that committee and tho appointmont wae
mado at the request of tho thousand
citizen) prosent at that public meeting.
Tho committoe then proceeded to carry out
tbo instructions of the meeting not thoso
of Mr. Kohler, and I can see no reason
why a cbarga of selfishness should bo mado
against him. That committee, I under
stand, Is still at work and will continue to
push It to a successful termination unless
tho wator company (and I, as citizon,
hope thoy will not succeed) can induco the
people, by misrepresentations, to put a stop
to tho movement.
Tho people of Shenandoah know, as
woll as I do, that tho water company is
flgUting for a principle. But thoy aro also
aware that tho only principlo the company
ovor Bhowod was for tho almighty dollar.
They played a gamo of chance and lost,
and now thoy aro crying togetthoir monoy
back. Is it not truo that their action in
bringing suit has cost this borough many
hundred dollars? Is it not truo that they
aro now willing to give tho borough freo
water and forego tho amount tho verdict
gave thorn 1 Is it not truo that thoy wont
back on their pledgo! of ton j ears ago? Is
it not truo that thoy denied, on tho witness
stand, ever making such pledges 7 And is
it not truo that they admitted on tho stand
that they considered anything fair in a
fight of this kind? And all for a principle!
Th ero is no principle In grinding tho last
penny out of tho pooplo of this town.
Thoro is no principlo in taking back all
they havo for tho sako of saving their
dividends. There is no principlo in taking
back solomn pledges and awoaring they
never made thgij There is no principle
in stooping to misrepresentations to win
this fight. I, for ono, beliovo that a water
plant can bo put into this town for f 75,000
and thai tbo bonds could bo floated at four
por cont. On the question of royonue I
believe tho borough would bo all right.
Tho wator company's rovonuo amounts to
at lean ?30,000 por year. Say, with that
revonuo, tho cost of running tho borough
works would be 810 000 a year (Hnd that is
a high ostimato) thore would bo an annual
balanco of ?20,CO0 towards liquidation of
tho indebtedness. Comparo theso figures
with thoso of tho water company's corres
pondent and soo how far tho company will
go for a principlo. Why, four or five
years would wipo out tbo wator bonds and
tho revenuo from that source would bo
greater than our present tax duplicate and
tho borounh tax would oventually amount
to comparatively nothing. The rovonue
would satisfy most people, but It seems this
company cannot sleep in bod of a possi
bility of collecting about ?000 more
