as a rule comes from the country
though it is occasionally mixed with in
formation of panicky conditions in
some of the noninfected points As an
instance Christie and Lowe govern
ment contractors have a brush camp
on the river in Tensas parish and some
of their laborers are ill with ma
laria and other diseases The firm

for face veils It was recalled by a

Officials Claim They Are Causing the 3
Streets and Buildings to Settle i
Chicago Sept HThe subways of
the Illinois Tunnel company was found 3I
to be the cause of the settling of the 4
streets and several large buildings in I
the down town district This conclu
sion is set forth by the citys civil en
gineer in a supplemental report
made yesterday The engineer says In
four instances of settlement directly It
traceable to the undermining of the
streets by the tunnel company and de
clare that it is impossible to prevent
a settlement of the ground and founda
tions of the large structures even witn
improved and safer methods
The next important finding of the
commission is that it is not feasible
to make any plan that can be safely
followed for all connections
Another finding is that it is not
practicable to make connections under
air pressure as it would not be suf
ficient to sustain the pressure of the
foundations It is found that because
of the danger to the buildings and
streets the tunnel company practically
has ceased making connections and
many of the connections which were
started have been abandoned
No damage was found as a result
of work on the main line tunnels
