Railroad company in building a switch North of track near the station had encroached six feet upon the Borough property at an Alley and that upon discovering this fact the committee on streets and Bridges had caused the company to discontinue work in the switch until the present meeting when the matter could be brought la fore Council. The Railroad company he said is anxious to Complete the work and proposes to give the Borough an indemnifying Bond providing for any Accident which might occur and also to Lill up the Alley to make driving Over the track easy. The matter was discussed at length it being the sense of the members that Council has no right to thus permit the Railroad to occupy the streets and they were very much afraid that dam age might ensue to property and com plications arise. On motion of or. Lloyd seconded by Joseph Gibson it was ordered that Tho d. L. Amp w. Railroad be not per Mittl to Lay its track on the Borough property. Or.

The Man who is anxious for the to begin will not have to interview with 1 1 1 the tact was stated in these columns yesterday that the ordinance of the Danville and Bloo Lusburg electric Railroad which was read a fore the Borough Council of Riverside monday night was not represented at the meeting by any of Tho company. Justice to All parties would seem to demand that a full explanation be Given Why none of the me Mars of the company were present to speak for the ordinance. During an interview with chief Burgess Shepperson of Riverside Borough yesterday it was Learned that through a sheer Accident which no one deplores More than the Burgess himself Tho Danville and were not informed that a meeting to act upon the ordinances would take place monday night and consequently were unaware that it would be advisable for them to be present the meeting was a special one called to consider the ordinance. Daring the Day it seemed it devolved upon Burgess Shepperson to apprise the Danville and Bloo Lusburg company of the meet aug. The Burgess says he fully intended to notify or. Pasone or some other member of the company and during the Forenoon actually called up the trolley office by phone none of the men then were about and Tho Burgess dropped the matter tally intending to Call up the office at a later hour. During the remainder of the Day it occurred that Burgess Shepperson was wholly absorbed by some very important matters who Civ came up in his own business and he forgot to Call up the trolley company. His neglect occurred to him when lie reached the meeting when Tho question was put to act upon the ordinances the Burgess objected advocating a postponement explaining that he had inadvertently neglected to inform any of the Sot the Danville and Bloo Lusburg company that the meeting was to he held. That the counsel of the Burgess did not prevail is altogether another matter. Tho above explanation As to Why the Danville and blooms org company was not present shows that it was through no inclination on their part to recede or abandon their proposition that the ordinance was thus left to its Fate. Or. Foscoe takes Tho View that As a business proposition the Danville and Bloo Lusburg company should Appeal the most strongly to sooth Danville and Riverside people. If granted the right of Way on the other Side of the River he will agree to build a line to the lower end of Riverside As Well As to Dewitt a Fark and will give a Bond binding him Down to the proposition this would insure Tho people passage backward and Forward from any Nart of Riverside South Danville and Danville for one fare whereas if two comp Aries Are permitted to exist in the limited Field in travelling Between Riverside and the various parts of Danville there will of necessity he two fares to pay.
