WATER EXTEXSIO* CASE.
City RnKln*.r Tliomnon Th.re
Han Kern \o I>elay In th,- Matter
—Fact. nplnsc Collfrtfil for
t»« of the Corporation
City Engineer Thomson «ays there has
been no delay In the extension of the Ce
dar river water system, as Implied In the
resolutions passed by the Chamber of
Commerce on Wednesday. He says that
no one knew prior to the city election
whether the condemnation and purchase
of the necessary lands wonld bo author
ized.
Blu<-e that time as many members of the
engineering force as aro available have
been busy working on the required classi
fication and compiling of data for the cor
poration counsel's use. The latter can
make no move in the matter until he Is
furnished with the necessary Information.
The city engineering force is being worked
to Its highest limit, but owln« to the pres
ent rush will not have the data prepared
before tho end of next week.
The property in question numbers many
thousands of acres, and runs from the
city's property and the present point of
Intake, near Clifford's bridge, up to and
around Cedar lake. About 40 per cent, of
the land belong, to the Northern I'aciflc
railway, and the rest is In the hands of
private Individuals. About 30 per cent, of
the latter has never been patented, al
though occupied by squatters for a num
ber of years.
It will probably be late In the fall before
a judgment can be entered in court as a
result of legal proceedings Corporation
Counsel W. 13. Humphrey says that it will
take alnety days for him to bring the af
fair to an Issue after he is furnished with
a description of the lands and data by the
olty engineer Tho summonses must be
published for sixty days, and other mat
ters, such as the abstracting, will take
considerable time . ... _
"1 am glad to see so much Interest being
taken in the new water system." said City
Kiurincer Thomson yesterday, "but the
delay has only been apparent. e are
d °'v^hcn r fce 1 get our descriptions and
data." said THr. Humphrey, "from the en
gineer's office wo shall proceed immedi
ately to act in the matter."

THE SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, FKIDAi , MAY 11, 1900.
BLOWN THROUGH A CABIN.
TWO MR* AT KRTCHIKAH KILLED
BY AN EXPLOSION.
Dynamite Which Wai Being: Thaw

of the CataMrephe hy Which
Two Sweden Lout Their Live*.
The City of Seattle, which arrived from
Lynn canal shortly before midnight last
night, brought details of a terrific explo
sion near Ketchikan a week ago. The
story was carried to Skagway by Customs
Inspector Fleming. He says that twenty
five sti ks of dynamite exploded while
being thawed In a stove near a cabin
Four men were in the cabin at the time,
and two of them were thrown completely
through the roof and dropped to the earth
outside. The most wonderful part of it is
that these two men made their extraordi
nary trip through the top of the houre and
back to «arth without a scratch.
The two other men who were in the
house were badly injured. It appears they
were thrown against the walls, or some
thing, and did not go through the roof or
walls. One man was badly cut and bruiMd
all over hi" bodv and so severely injured
he did not survive. However, he lived un
til taken to Ketchikan, where he was
given surgical attention by an experienced
doctor, but he was beyond recovery. He
suffered excruciating pain before passing
The fourth man was severely injured be
low the waist. His ear drums also suf
fered much, and it WHS several days be
fore he began to recover his hearing. Mr.
Fleming says it is a wonder that the
man's ear drums withstood the terrific
concussion.
The names of the men were not ascer
tained by Mr. Fleming, but he says they
were all Swedes.
The place of the accident was near Dall
head, on Oravina Island, and sixteen miles
from Ketchikan. The men were working
in the mine.
Immediately after the accident two men
set out in a small boat for Ketchikan and
had the steamer Elmore return with them
to the scene of the accident and take the
two victims to Ketchikan.

According to statements of the police,

and other drug habits cured by a remark
able remedy recently Introduced in this
city called
HABITINE
Habltlne is an lnvigorator. a powerful
vitallzer, a tissue builder. But it goes
further than this. It exercises a specific
action upon the* drug habit so that persons
using Habitine soon lose all desire for
opiates and can stop their use without
suffering any pain, nervousness, sfeeples*-
ness. etc. A short course of Habiting
creates a new feeling of vigor, vital en
ergy,
VITAL FORCE
And buoyancy that is wonderful. The ap
petite becomes almost ravenous, a rapid
gain in flesh and strength, and it is then
that the drug habit becomes positively
disgusting.
The thousands of persons who have
taken Habitine, both In the Cast and on
this Coast, and always with this same ef
fect. enables us to treat ail cases of the
drug habit without any payment whatso
ever until a |>erfect cure Is effected and all
desire for the drug completely removed.
Those afflicted with the dreadful habit of
drug addiction should consult the doctors
of the Habitine Sanitarium, either person
ally or by letter, without delay.
Hours 10 a. m. to 4 p. m.; Sundays 2 to 4
