I lie special Ella it turn at which our it it Are a it kid in Voto upon the gue Tiou id inc using the boroughs j Inch team s pm Ihu purpose of paving Mill Street and municipal Light will take place a a next tuesday August 2nd there Are several questions connected with the special election which Are much discussed not Only by those who have the conduct of it on their hands but by the electors in general and no ple about the Street. The Point to de genuine it seems is How tar the general election Law apply to a special Lei Tion of this sort. Few Are found to question whether the regular voting Booths May be used. But there is much doubt whether the regular ballot boxes containing tickets list of voters &c., sealed up at the close of the last election Aud nut to be opened unil the morning of the next election can legally he used at the special election next tuesday Al of whether the places at which liquor is sold May remain open. The act of 181 1 a to regulate the manner it increasing indebtedness of municipalities a sets Forth that such elections shall he held at the place time and under the same regulations As provided by Law for the holding of municipal elections. It provides that tickets properly and legally labelled a shall be deposited in a Box provided for that purpose As is provided by Law in regard to other tickets received at said elections. A the above removes tie last doubt As to whether the regular voting Booths May be used at the special election but it is not quite Clear enough on the other Point relating to ballot boxes to satisfy oui councilman and to be on the Safe Side they have decided to use special ballot boxes Aud have already ordered the same to be made. W. Kaso West attorney for the county commissioners yesterday rendered an opinion stating that the Reg ular ballot boxes May not be used at a special election such a held on next tuesday. As to the other question involved whether or not the bars must close during the election there seems to be hut Little difference of opinion As the Law seems very Plain. The Section relating to liquor reads As follows a it shall not be lawful for any person with or without a License to sell to any person any intoxicating drink on any Day on which elections Are now or hereafter May to required to be in putting on the finishing touches. The Standard construction company yesterday Liesau the final cleaning up of the trolley track which place it in condition tor traffic whenever the cars Are ready for running.

The Street As far As the work has progressed presents a very tidy and presentable appearance the Only blemish lying in the fact that the trolley track which conforms with tie established Grade lies several inches below the a neral Leaf 1 of the Street which was macadamia de to conform with former surveys. In time it is understood that the Street is to be regraded to conform with the established Grade hut How soon Council intends to enter upon the work is not known.

The railing is being placed in position on the coping along Side of the new Culvert Mill Street it adds much to the appearance and conveys a Good idea of How nicely the whole improvement will show up when Tho Culvert is cloaked up and paved and the sidewalks lowered. Persons generally have become very weary of the unsightly appearance presented by the old and irregular sidewalks at each end of the Culvert and they can not understand Why there should be of much delay in having them lowered to conform with the established Grade. It was Learned yesterday that delay in the matter is necessary. In Case Mill Street is to be paved the curbing will have to be set to correspond while should the result of the special election be unfavourable and Street paving have to tie abandoned the curbing will differ Little if any from that employed at present. Obviously therefore it would to inexpedient to lower the sidewalks until after the special election when it will be known just How t n curbing is to to set. Not quite ready to begin work.

The Danville and Sunbury trolley company a new corporation to which a charter was granted about ten Days ago started the Survey work at South Danville monday morning.

Trolley service Between this City and Sunbury will he a Boon to both towns. It Means More business for Danville Good service for the Farmers and a great convenience for the residents of South Danville and Riverside. Clyde c. Yetter esq., of blooms Burg is president of the company Isaac Hagenbuch of Bloomsburg Secretary and w. A. Heller of this City treasurer. The directors of the company Are c. P. Hancock of Danville James Coleman of Bloomsburg or. Wolf of Espy Howard Weiss of Siegfried and or. Riegel of Catasauqua.

Heller is a most Earnest worker. He is a Mau of wide experience in tie trolley business and his part in the successful launching of the Danville Aud Bloomsburg trolley company was by no Means a Small one. It was a Woik that inspired Confidence Aud tie enthusiasm in which he Lias taken hold of the Dauville and Sunbury line augurs Well for its Early completion.

A line to Shamokin which it is expected will be built in the near future will connect every town in Central Pennsylvania the value of a y. M. J. A. Ticket. A membership ticket in the Young menus Christian association is of More value than most Young nieu imagine and it would be a Wise thing for some of the men of Dauville to consider the i Atter of membership especially if they expect to visit other towns or cities. The plan adopted by the associations throughout the country to acknowledge us expired membership tickets of other organizations of same kind is of the greatest Benefit to Young men when away from Home. A practical illustration of this comes to the local association through or. Sidney Cannard. Who recently visited the worlds fair at St. Louis. He states that his ticket was accepted for full privileges at Buffalo Chicago Aud St. Louis and that every Courtesy was shown him not Only in tie use of privileges at the various association buildings such a swimming Pool Baths Reading room Etc., but also in the matter of finding comfortable hoarding places restaurants Aud places of interest. Cue of the Danville y. M. C. A. Members who was in Good standing at Home could not use the privileges during a visit to St. Lou is because he did not take his y. M. C. A ticket with him. It is a Wise thing for members to keep these tickets in their pocket As they Are of value to the possessors in Many ways especially when away from Home. In Honor of a son. B. F.
