A Charge of Negligence

May Be Preferred Against Diver Who Inspected Intake Pipe

The question of alleged negligence displayed by the French diver employed by the Donnelly Wrecking Company, in connection with the search for the leak in the intake pipe ? last summer, formed the subject of warm discussion at the water works committee meeting on Monday afternoon. The members were of the opinion that the matter should not be dropped. It was not a question of money to the city, but the fact that lives had been lost on account of the tainted water. One of the members thought that licenses should be issued to divers, and when an accident of this kind occurred, their licenses should be cancelled forever. The water works committee could not understand how the leak could escape the Frenchman, when diver Murphy discovered it the second day he was down.
