GARBAGE PLANT. NOT
TO LOCATE HERE
Rumors Afloat That It Was
Never Intended to Operate
Plant on Island.
spfloi to the ΕVKXiNG ΒTtaWB.
Tottenville, Dec. 16—Speculation as
to whether the garbage disposal plant
will ever be operated as such has been
the subject of much comment on
Staten Island during the past week.
While work has been going along
slowly at the proposed plant on I.ake
Island, In the Freshklll creek, rumors
have been afloat that the plant will
never be used as a garbage disposal
plant for what it Is Intended for. It
has been said on good authority that
the place was really Intended for
some other purpose than what tho
contractors have had In mind.
A prominent man holding an office
under the city, has volunteered the
information that the contractors did
not want to put the plant along the
shores of Staten Island and that the
building now in the course of con
struction would be used for some sort
of manufacturing purposes. It has
also been pointed out that the Title
Guarantee and Trust Company, who
have advanced nearly all of the
money for the erection of the plant.
I bl
nmwv ι t
do not let any money, or do not give
any guarantee where there Is the least
doubt as to the ownership of the
property. ι
Although the hearing on the gar-1
bage plant conducted by a special
coin mission of the state health au
thorities was concluded some time ago
no decision lias as yet been rendered.
This commission was named by Gov- j
ernor Whitman and the report Is ex
pected to be favorable to the people
of Staten Island who have been fight
ing to keep It away from the bor
ough of Richmond. The plan* was to
have begun operation the first of the :
year according to the contract, but it
is said the rate the work Is progress- i
ing. It would be next summer before!
start could be made.

Cheer to Many.

Tottenville, Dec. \5:—Distribution
of $18,500 to 725 depositors in the

This amount is double what it was
last year when about $9,000 was

families by the deposit of the small
amount in the bank each week that |
would otherwise not have been laid ι
aside for the holidays.
It is said that $80,000,000 will be ι
distributed to more than 2.000,000 |
depositors this year in the Christmas
club which has its headquarters in
Manhattan. When it became known
yesterday that the checks were ready

those terrible pains across my fore
head. The pains across the 'ower part
of my back were also verj distress
ing.
Ί recently began taking Tanlac, this
medicine having been ho hig.'uy rec

Taken only one and a half bottles of

not be without it iri my home."
