A matter of health in an interview with Galen Burgau construction superintendent of the Iron to k on the River Bridge an american representative Gle Ned some facts that nearly eve. By one is auz Ioos to know. The most important ques Ion was As to when the Bridge Cau be used by pedestrians and whether or not the cold weather would interfere with the work. Or. Morgan stated yesterday that after the a so work was erected from the South Side abutment to the first pier rhe Iron work could he put up at the Rato of a Span a weak. As there Art seven spans and As some time Mast be allowed for delays it will probably be the Middle of january before the heavy work is in position. This estimate is Given on the strength of favourable conditions. Cold weather will be no drawback As or. Morgan stated that they worked of a Bridge my during last Winter. The thing feared most is that floating ice would Knock out the false work without which they cannot proceed. Should the River freeze however the work can continue As the a a Bents could be set up through the ice. As soon As the spans Are up or. Morgan stated that a temporary walk could he placed on the Bridge for Pede Straus though if this is done it must to built by the counties of Montour and Northumberland. The construction company do not build these walks for the reason that they do not assume responsibility in Case of Accident. There would probably be Little danger in using this walk hut the privilege is often abused. Many people take unnecessary risks and venture away from the walk to watch the workmen. Oftentimes intoxicated people who would attempt to Cross at night would be ill grave danger and for these reasons the construction companies do not build walks until the work is completed. The time when the Roadway would be open to travel is Uncertain. The putting Down of Concrete in cold weather i unsatisfactory and should very cold weather prevail it is doubtful if the driveway could be used before May 1st. Moping for an advancement.

Lackawanna amp Western Railroad s Appeal from the opinion of judge Little dissolving the injunction against the Dauville and blooms Burg Street railway company May not be held Over by the supreme court of Pennsylvania until the regular time of taking up Montour county cases which will be in february 1905. The Case is Oue of such vital Pablo interest that a final decision at As Early a Date As possible is hoped for. Last week it was talked of in some Raate s that the Case is to he advanced. Anything of this kind is merely speculation however. The supreme court of Pennsylvania is not in session until january. At that time a request for the advancement of the Case would have to a made and favourably acted upon before the Case would to taken up out of turn.
