Rollins ,t Suns, to whom the issue was awardeil at a handsome premium, according to their bid, now decline, under the advice of their counsel, to take them on the ground that there is it doubt of their legal validty. which it will take a special act of the legislature to reined v. The real trouble is that the issue is for a purpose, or the opera house part of it, outside the regular functions of the town or of town business fur which the general law authorizes the contrac tion of debts. Rollins A- Sons had found where to place tho bonds but the purchasers at once became shy when they found that any citizen who chose might contest the payment. A case has recently been decided by the federal supreme court involving similar points and it is to the effect that a special act of the legislature is necessary to validate such issues, just as a special law was necessary for towns bonding for railroads. When the declination of Kollin A- Sons or rather their clients was made known, the selectmen suggested that the difficulty might be got around under section 27.11 of the Revised Laws with regard to refunding town debts - that is, that the necessary money -night be borrowed on notes or town orders and then a special town meeting be called to order the refunding. But the purchasers declined to take any such chances and the result is that the money must be borrowed on notes un til after the next session of the legis lature. .1 per cent being the best rate obtainable, and then of course tliCj chances of the money markets will i have to be taken for the getting of Isuch a premium as Rollins A- Son! offered when the matter was supposed to be all right.

Eighteen trees on the Retreat farm were hit and many torn to pieces. The Woman's Summer Retreat, the Miles place, had things snauen up hy the lightning following in on a telephone wire but happily no one was hurt. On Walnut street a tree near the railroad bank was struck, a broken wire falling against it and stripping of the bark. At S. H. Sherman's on High street lightning struck a chimney cap and broke it into pieces, taking with it some of the chimney brick. The 0-pound chimney cap on W. H. Adams house on Wasti ng ton street was also knocked off. !A big 'tree in Col. Chase's yard was shattereeil by force of the "wind or lightning and a part fell on his side and a part into Maj. Chi Ida' yard. A tree in James Bowler's yard was thrown over on Brook street, "it is a similar story that comes from every side, and doubtless it is true that the plentitude of wires is what saved village houses. All along the narrow gauge trees and limbs were strewn over the track and the morning trains were somewhat delayed for the trainmen to clear the way. A sample case up that i way was Samuel Pierce's orchard at Bondville where 11 out of 11 trees were I levelled.
