A COMMITTEE APPOINTED Mr Top Knlrnrld Pond or pump Wat cr from the I.nke tils Concerns I'nrrril In Shut Ilonn Means Monthly Loss of ovrr 940,000. 8t. Albans, Oct. G-Tlie crisis that con fronts St. Albans 111 tho rapidly np proachlng fnlhiTo of tier water supply, which has already closed the Central Vermont Hallway shops and tho Oreeii Mountain Packing company nud will to morrow close the big milk plunt of tho Vnn Onnip Packing company, resulted In tho calling of a. public meeting of citi zens nt tho city hall this afternoon, for tho purpnso of finding a way It possible to get an atnplo and quick supply of vntcr, It wnn the concensus of opinion tho' the .city should not shut off the water from either tho largo consumer or householders If there was any posslblo way out of thn difficulty. Kx-Mnywr Fuller C. Smith 'went Into tho matter In nil Its details, to ascertain existing conditions ami suggested that ns a remedy the city consider nt once the proposition of either tnpplng Silver lake, a fine. large body of pure -water In Fnlr lleld and piping It to tho present re servoirs, a distance of about 2t miles, or of Installing a pumping plant at tho inao enoro anu runuiiu; u pipe, mm in tho mains on tho western limits of the city. Following an earnest discussion of Hie whole rltuatlon In which It was show n that tho emergency should bo met promptly, nt whatever cost, a special commit ten of three to Investigate and recommend a plan for linmedlato relief was appointed, consisting of tho Hon. Eelden C. Oreene, William Kennedy, su perintendent of motive power of tho Cen tral Vermont, and Dr. Halleck. This committee will net In nr advisory capac ity to tho city council and will Mart to-morrow morning to in spect theso two projects. It Is expected that tho committee will report within 2-1 hours and the matter will then be up to the council for action, One of the suggestions was tho Institution of pumping plant from tho lake to be use! i-olely by tho railroad and manufacturing Interests, it being believed that If this were done, that tho reserve water In tho reservoir would bo nmplo for domestic purposes. Tho Central Vermont shops employing between 300 and VX men will be obliged to remain closed until somo remedy is found whereby water can bo had for Its plant. This meaim tho stoppage of a monthly pay roll of nbout J16.000, and entails great hardships on tho employes, nn well as upon thn railroad company, which has been putting forth all Its ef forts to get Its motive power and rolling Mock In shape for the winter. Tho shut down will nlso bo n. blow to local merchants. The Vnn Camp Packing company, which pays out about $23,000 per month, will bo a heavy loser, and Its enforced suspension o operations will fcreatl embnrass the owners of 223 dairies whoso' mlllt It has been taking. This milk will be taken by the com pany to-morrow mornlnn for tho lost time, It Is expected, until further no tice. Tho company Is working night and day driving an artesian well and to-day struck a ledge nt a depth of 73 feet which produced a llttlo water.

Several times a day she would open tho kitchen door nnd throw to the stray cats nnd dogs nearly a pound of steak which should have been used In the fnmlly cooking. The bend of tho house gently suggested thnt some uso might be made of the steak but the nurso replied, "Oh, nn, I've taken all the goodness out of It."

Claim It In the Star of Ilethlehem Has Hns n Mnicnlflrent Tnll nnd Will He Visible Here. Rochester, N. Y Oct. 4. Astronomers throughout tho world are gTcatly Inter ested in the expected reappearance of tho famous Hallcy comet and arn specu lating ns to when It will flash across tho envens. Just at present this brilliant star Is rushing from roniewhers In llllml tablo spacu towards thu sun at a. velocity of several million miles an hour Every astronomer hns a telescope pointed tow ard the path In which thu comet Is ex pected to appear. At Rochester I'nlverslty Prof. Hownrd Mlnchln, professor of physics nnd as tronomy, holds thenplnlou that the comet will not appear until tho fall of 131t. If It follows previous periodic appearances. It may oven be deluyed beyond that time, he states, owing to tho Inlluenes of tho planets Saturn and Jupiter which Is ad verse when tho vagrant star crosses their orbits will retard and divert It In Its flight toward the sun anywhere from one and one-half to three years. It last appeared In 1K33 before, thendvent of present nBtronomlcnl Instruments. Another view point Is that the comut or star, Is supposed to bo the samo Star of Ilethlehem, which gutded tho wise men to the btablo In which Christ was born The exact identity of tho comet with the Stnr of Ilethlehem has not. however, been established. Professor Hnlley discovered tho comet In 16SI, He soon determined that the comet had an elliptical orbit, unlike other comets which usually follow a parabolic path and are seen but once. Tho Halley comet seeniH to havo a period of 76 years and Halley llgured that its first ftp pearauco must havo been about 12 R. O. This Is used aa an argument thnt It could not hnvo been tho star of Ilethlehem. "The Inability of astronomers to predict with certainty," says Prof. Mlnchln, "tho exact periodic appearance of the Halley comet Is due to tho fact that Its path In tho region of Saturn and Jupiter means thnt If theso planets happened to a"t In conjunction at the time of thn comet's passing, the effect would be something Ukn thnt of a race horse dnsh- lug over a course, should tie held hack uy a ueavy lonu uemg suuueuii fniy to It. "No dnnger to the earth would happen from a collision with a comet. There Is a record of tho earth's coming In conjunc- lion with the tnll of a comet In the seventeenth century, with the result thnt a monk nt thnt time rending, suddenly found himself In darkness nnd hnd tn light a new taper nnd history marks It down: Tn collision with the tall of a comet ono tnper. 1eavlng the question nf tho Halley comet beln.T or not being tho Siar of Bethlehem nslde, the romet when It comes will bo a large, brilliant stnr. with a magnificent tnll nnd when It appears It will he visible In nil parts of the I'nlted States. 200,000 SEEK FREE LAND.

The railroads are hauling In candidates for hind by the thousands, but tho great rush is expected next Wed nesday nnd Thursday, when monster ex cursions will arrive.
