New Industry foil Riverside it the reconstruction of North Mill Street with state Aid came up before Council Friday and action was taken to hurry up proceedings in the state Highway department relative to the matter to the end that work May be Gin on the important improvement at the very earliest Date possible. Or. Vastire reviewed the proc in a new Industry is looming us Riverside which if plans do not miscarry. Promises to become an important Factor in the growth and development of our neighbouring Borough. The Industry is nothing less that a Plaut for the manufacture of Fine hosiery. Riverside is a charming place but .<1 it is deficient in industries those Tann Ings last fall which consisted of sending in the usual petition to the state Highway department. The receipt of the petition in due time was acknowledged and there the proceedings Stop jmj a Short lie thought that something ought to he done to hurry up matters otherwise there would be a Long delay in the Highway department which would hold Back the work until late in the summer the petition he said called for a Brick pavement As far As Chambers Street and beyond that Point a Macadam Road. I order to get the improvement under Way or. Vastire moved that Borough solicitor e. S. Gearhart he requested to proceed to Harrisburg and Confer with the state Highway commissioner at once for the purpose of seeing How soon the work can is started. Or. Bedea seconded the motion and it carried unanimously. A communication was received from Borough solicitor Gearhart raising some question As to the condition of lies who reside there in the main being obliged to look to Danville for employment. Along wit i its Broad avenues that make the place desirable for residences it has scores of admirable manufacturing Sites. The trolley line in course of construction has attracted attention to Riverside and in Light of All the facts it would seem that a new Era has dawned upon the town. Among the manufacturing concerns of Philadelphia that Are cramped for room and desire to establish a Plant where help is plentiful is the Adams hosiery company. W. K. Adams a member of the firm whose attention had been called to the advantages existing at Riverside a few Days ago paid that place a visit to look Over the ground.

Clark and other leading spirits who made it Clear to him that the Borough stood ready to Wel Coine an Industry such As his Aud had the fire pings and expressing the opium inducements to offer that he could not ignore. Or. Adams had with him Ion that these ought to be More frequently examined to determine whether any Are Frozen. He called attention to a suit for Many thousands of dollars brought against the Borough of Shani Okin for a defective fire plug which resulted in a $200,000 fire. This he to to a practical reminder that it might be Well to keep posted in the condition of the fire plugs during Winter. Or. Boyer Rook the View that it should Ike somebody s business to open the fire plugs at least once a month to determine if they Are in Good working order. Or. Russell and Street commissioner e. S. Miller gave it As their opinion that to open the fire plugs during the Winter would be merely to invite additional freezing. \ disc six a followed when in View of the fact that freezing weather is about Over for this season the matter was drop Ped without and action being taken. A communication was received from the p. A r. Railway company relative to the closing a if Cross Street a matter which has been hanging fire for some time past. The communication was As follows. Or. Joseph Gibson. President of Council. Dear sir a i Lieg to ask your Honor Able Council to consider Aud if Miossi me give the p. A r. Railway some re Lief in the matter a if a a losing Cross Street in accordance with an agreement entered into Between the Borough and the Bloomsburg amp Danville and p. A the r. Railway companies. As you a perhaps know tin railway company completed its part of tin work Ami it has been Many Mouths since tin undergrad Lias been put into use by the Borough and the electric company aug Las yet the railway company has not been relieved a if the crossing of cry iss str it which was promised then. We Are very much in need of the room occupied by this Street of a or the storage of cars and trains and will greatly appreciate anything that can he done to give us the desired Relief. J. E. Turk superintended. On motion of or. Sweisfort seconded by or. Russell it was ordered that the communication by accepted Ami that the Secretary be instructed to i communicate with superintendent Turk informing him that just As soon As a Street is fully completed according to contract Cross Street will 1 vacated in accordance with the agreement. George re if Suyu Ler appeared before Council to ask for a permit to build a cold storage building at the rear of 311 Mill Street which will be of Frame sheeted with steel and covered with an Asbestos roof. The building�?22 late 22 feet will stand in the rear at the end a of a 150 foot lot and will lie practically fire proof. On motion Ltd for. Augle seconded by or Eisenhart the request was granted.

Later on the entire Stutin May be lighted up specimens of the product of his Plant which spoke for itself being the finest and most expensive Grade of work. He also exhibited letters from houses with which he dealt that made it Clear that his product was in general demand and that he could sell All the Hose that he could manufacture. Or. Slie Persou and his associates took it upon themselves to offer the firm free of Cost a plot of ground 200 feet wide fronting on the Pennsylvania Railroad a and to exempt the Industry from the payment of local tax for the period of to a years. The plot of ground offered was formerly used Lor the manufacture of fire Brick and contains a Roomy and substantial building. Or. Adams was much plea Seil not Only with the location and the natural advantages hut also with the inducements and the generous terms proposed a by the citizen there is Only one Point in which he i i is on the question of help. Or Sheri it Persou however has Confidence that hands in sufficient number it an be procured to keep a Good sized Plant in operation. As things stand at present it seems that the Adams hosiery company May Start up in Riverside. The proposition i that the building formerly the Bri k Plant be remodeler to Start up in t in manufacture of Fine hosiery so that a fair number of hands May be instructed in the work while the other portion a if tin Plant is being built. After a years Experiment if it should be demonstrated that help in sufficient numbers can not be obtained in River six be tin proposition will he abandoned. Will remove canal Bridge. The Bridge Over the abandoned canal at Beaver Street one of the very few canal Bridges remaining in the Borough is being removed to make Way for a Culvert at the spot. To accommodate the Bridge there is a Steep Grade at each end which makes hauling difficult in add lotion to which the Bridge was Long a it a condemned As unsafe and the Public was warned not to use it. The warning however was not heeded and the Public regardless of a Langer have continued to use the Brit age. The old a Structure however is at last at the eur a of its career. Beaver Street it seems is not a Public thoroughfare but belongs to the two industries located North of the canal. The stove and manufacturing com Pany therefore for some time past has stood ready to remove the Bridge Aud fill in the canal constructing a Culvert to take its place As was done by tin Borough at other Points As soon As the i. L. Late w. Railroad company would co operate laying pipe of suitable dimensions As it did at Church Street. The owners of the canal it would seem arc As anxious As the Borough is to get rid of the old Bridges and Art willing enough to cooperate with the stove works. A few a lays ago a Large Quantity of Terra Cotta pipe two feet i a diameter was unloaded at the spot Aud yesterday a Force of Railroad employees were at work laying the pipe. By night the Job was nearly completed although the men were obliged to Wade water nearly knee deep and worked against tremendous Odds. The stove and manufacturing company now stands ready to fulfil its part of the contract. The Bridge will be remove a at any Day Aud work of building the Culvert will begin. There w ill not be much interruption to travel As the stove and manufacturing company has a big accumulation of ashes cinder Etc., available which w ill suffice to fill up the spot sufficiently to i make the Road passable. Simultaneously with the filling up with ashes cinder Etc. The Street will be Cut Down Ini conform with the general level the Earth obtained by the process being used i tilling up the spot.

It is in the form of Gigantic truss 125 feet Long embodying All the features of modern and scientific construction. The work is wholly in the hands of John a. Mowrey who has had much experience in the building of Bridges Mills Aud other heavy structures. The truss 125 feet Long is 14x22 inches and is made up of eleven separate Sticks clamped together. Its weight is estimated at 30 Tous Aud As constructed its strength is enormous. An expert to whom the plan was submitted by or. Mowrey assured him that it would carry 100 Tous.
