This Issue la now to be paxaed on to the dty by the county, contingent upon the city's withdrawing Us former opposition to the sewers and co ­ operating with the county. - The two large aewer projects, the North Yonkers and the Nepperhan Valley trunk sewers, calling for an outlay of more than $8,000,00$, with a new disposal plant to be eroded In Yonkers, and Including Hudson River to rid that river of raw sawaga pollution, represent plan s of the Westchester County Opposition presence of another disposal plant In the city.

After many conferences and de ­ liberations, at the last public hear ­ ing It was practically agreed that th j county would taka .over the existing Nepperhan Vallyr sewer Yonkers, the first portion built 1911 and 1813 and the second lirr.

It was found-legally possible for the c unty to take 'lass and retmburs' tbs dty. The question then arose as to the disposition of the remaining $100,000, in round figures, to be paid the dty for the local sewer. County Attorney William A. David ­ son announced he could find no legal way to pay this amount to the property ownen who had paid for tho/first section of the sewer It u understood former Mayor William J. Wallin of Yonkers, who had worked on the problem before leaving for Europe last month had concurred. The county now proposes to solve this problem by paying the money to the dty and allowing It to work out Its own distribution of the money to the property owners. There la a possibility. It was said here today, that the dty may dis ­ tribute this excess fund by allow ­ ing credits against 1830 taxation on th# paresis of property In ques ­ tion which were assessed for the local aewer built in ltll-and 1813, provided this be found legal SENTENCE CUT George Denman. 36, of Cottage Place, Tarry toi n v serving a sen ­ tence in Stats Prison for grand lar ­ ceny, yesterday had his '\time\ con ­ siderably shortened whin, on in ­ tercession . from prominent persons who have Interested themselvi the young man e case.
