▶ The strike at the mines of the Witherbee, Sherman Company at Mineville and Witherbee is now almost a thing of the past, practically half of the force of miners having returned to work, and the greater part of those who are still out have expressed the determination to resume work this week. Under these circumstances it is probable that the strike will be a thing of the past before the end of the present week.
▶ Bids were last evening opened by the Board of Public Works for the clearing and grubbing of 15 acres “more or less” of the property purchased by the city during the administration of Mayor Senecal, upon which it is proposed to build the new storage reservoir for the city water system. The Board of Public Works approved the bid of Baker & Gregory, they being the lowest bidders at $125.50 per acre.
▶ Jim Patterson, the slayer of his own brother, is now in the Essex County jail in Elizabethtown, held on a charge of murder in the first degree to await the action of the grand jury meets next month. That desperado, whom officers have long feared, walked into their hands so easily that they hate to tell of it. He was walking toward Port Henry to give himself up when they met him on top of Crow Hill.
