there is no opposition in the city to
the construction of a municipal newer

laid down by Engineer Swearingen.
To the contrary, there Is everywhere
the most cordial approval of the
prosegatlon to do agmething and to di
it at onoe. The final obstacle In the
way of a start upon this work was
removed when the state board of
health sanetioned the use of the river
for thb discharge of the city's sewage.

to get all of this advance work out of
