Come everybody Aud help a worthy cause along Tho Board of directors of the Board of Trade met last night and took action of a matter of vital interest to every citizen who is interested in Danville a welfare. Morss. Goeser Cole Pursel Ellenbogen Watson Foster do to a Reifsnyder and special committeeman Prico were at the meeting. The directors Wero to have met tuesday evening hut owing to previous engagements of several of them to attend meetings of importance president Goeser could not get a quorum until last night when they voted to a Man for a policy that is perfectly Safe and sane progressive and Public spirited. The directors unanimously endorsed the action of the committee that on tact it but nevertheless within three Mouths after the Grade crossing was put in a car of the electric company got unon our main track lost its Power and was run into by one of our trains. This company was nor to Dame and the trolley company Fiad to damages which i am told aggregated enough to have paid substantially it do the expense that it would have been put to to build a Bridge Over our track and avoided the Grade Ero sing. It is a fact hey oud question that an electric rail was crossing of a Strain Railroad at Grade cannot to mad a Safo and proof of this fact can be secured almost any Day from the columns of the newspapers. For some months there has been much discussion in the newspapers of the Largo increase in this country in Tho number of people killed and injured on and about the railroads of this country. I enclose one that i Cut from the new York Herald tuesday mailed to president Trues of yesterday which seem to have Cut Dale of the d. L. So w., the reply of satiated from the office of the interstate president Goeser of the Board of Trade Commerce commission at washington.,if you will read it you will see that to a letter of president Trousdale in uan 0f the railroads of the which the latter replies to the letter country me being held of the Board of Trade and a Resolution one reason or another Lor this slow the Board of Ike am Aro Beniuk called upon to. Expend Large sums of to Kiev to better Trade and Danville citizens held on pr0vide against accidents and the loss of Lile Ami personal injury resulting therefrom. To my mind there is no question hut what to a considerable extent the showing made of increases adopted at a meeting of a on wednesday evening september 28th, Tho Resolution As is Well known emphatically declaring in favor of a Grade crossing which everyone Here is convinced is an imperative necessity. The letter of president Truesdale to or. Goeser is As follows october 3, 1901. Or. John h. G Oeser. President Hoard of Trade Danville a. My dear sir this will acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 2 Atli Ultimo enclosing copy of resolutions passed by your Board disapproving the action of tins \ company in opposing the attempted Grade crossing of on main track in in casualties As u result of Railroad a Cid its is due to the number of trolley lines which have been permitted a to Cross the tracks of the steam Railroad companies of Tho country at Grade. I Leel that instead of officials of railways being d no need and in some cases Abusi d for opposing these death traps which the trolley companies Are try Itig to install at Grade Crossings Over team railways they should i upheld and commended for the Effort they Are making As in the Case in Point that they require trolley companies ill Imi Diug their lines in All cases to put Mill Street your City by the electric above or below the steam rail line which is now constructing its railway Between Danville and blooms Barg also calling upon this company to withdraw opposition tie into and permit said crossing of our main track to be made at Grade As the trolley peo Krom advices received from our people of the ground As Well As copies of newspaper articles which have been seut me i have observed with much regret that great feeling Lias been aroused among the people of Danville Over our attitude ill this matter that we Are being strongly Titi Misad and denounced by them therefor and that our motives for so doing Are being questioned and impugned it being claimed that our attitude in this matter is chiefly due to our opposition to tiie building of this electric line for Trio reason that it will probably reduce our passenger business Aud revenues. 1 despite to assure you that this feature of tie matter has not affected our action in the least. It is not the p i icy of this company to oppose the construction of electric railway lines because of the Competition of Liliose lines with it. We recognize that electric railway lines Soch As the one in question Are deemed essential to the Public interests und a modern conditions All Over this country and tint to oppose to Muir construction because of la Weir effect of the business of steam railways is the sheer est Folly. This company is however opposed to Grade Crossings of its line by electric railway lines and it policy is and will continue to be to oppose such Crossings in every Legal Way possible Aud we shall Only consent to their being put in after the courts of last resort in the various states through which our Liue runs decide that we must permit same. We have several reasons for our action in adopting and following this policy. They Are in All cases at All times and in All locations very dangerous and there Lias no method yet been discovered by which they can be made Safe. They Are a source of great danger Aud a constant menace to the lives of our employees and our passengers Aud Are so to the employees of and passengers handled by the electric companies and in our opposition to their installation we feel that we Are serving the owners of the Street railway companies and the travelling Public using their lines even More than we Are ourselves. Our views in this matter Are confirmed by the experience we have had at different Points on our line during the last year Aud a half. Within that Newark a trolley car crowded with children 011 their Way to school got beyond control of the Meu operating it and ran through the crossing Gates in front of one of our suburban trains and was struck by same and a Large number of the children 011 the car were killed and Many others injured also the Engineer of our engine which struck the car was Lindly injured and will be a cripple for life. Our company was held blameless in this Accident and the Street railway people were called upon to All damages growing out of it their president within Tho last two weeks told me that this Accident had Cost his company Over a Quarter of a million dollars at the time Tho Street railway company built its line Over our track we objected and the matter was taken into court and was contested All through the courts of new Jersey but notwithstanding our opposition the court of last resort in that stale permitted its construction. Flies Grade crossing could have in in m old i u an exp use to tiie Street railway company of not to exceed 5 per Emit of Liat they paid As damages in this one a Cidelle. Another Case about a year m 1, up on our Bangor and Portland line in your state after Consil ral h pressure had been put upon us by prominent Way tracks and thus Avoil All future e Anees tor los of life and injury As 1 am advised by our people while it is a fact As your Board of Trade claims in its resolutions it would not he i wiil pm we in Iii Street it can be done very readily either 111 tie Alley located Between Mill and ferry streets or 011 ferry Street and this with compare Lively Little expense to the Street railway Liue and on grades that Are perfectly feasible to operate trolley cars Over. In View of the interest taken by the not Danville in tins matter and of the co operation they gave the electric railway people in the efforts the latter made to illegally Force a crossing of our track at Mill Street week before last x think it is due this company that the sane publicity to Given this communication to you As has been Given the trolley people Aud your citizens who aided them in stating their position and purpose with respect to the crossing they attempted to forcibly install and i will thank Yon therefore it you will have this communication published in the columns of your papers i would like �11 Al Ising to Call Especial attention to the fact that All action taken by this company in this in tiler h 1 in rely to Proiet what on attorneys have advised Are our Legal rights in the premises and this in an orderly manner while the electric railway people and their friends in Danville undertook to do that which they had 110 Legal right to do in a Man tier that 1 am informed renders them liable under the criminal statutes of the stat a of Pennsylvania. Under circumstances i think we. Rather than the electric railway company should have the support of the Good Law abiding citizens of your City. In hrs very truly a h. Truesdale president. Or.

The illustrations of the accidents Al of aug and Newark however prove 110 morn than that an overhead crossing would have eliminated those Piti Calr accidents.
