Switch engine no. 1105 was derailed in the Yard of the structural tubing works on saturday evening and train master a. Ii. Anthony with his Crow has i nearly an All night Job in getting the locomotive Hack upon the rails. The mishap occurred about 5o clock just above East Mahoning Street As the switcher was about running on the wrestling leading to the covered Bridge Over the canal. They were making a Hying switch when the big engine jumped the track. Engineer John Bickert quickly shut off steam and jumped. In falling he struck his shoulder against a Hank of slag but a somjied with slight bruises the derailment hardly could have occurred at a worse Point. On one Side was a High embankment formed by the old cinder tip while on the other Side was a Declivity or drop in the surface several feet deep. Had the engine gone five feet farther it would have been of the wrestling when the Accident would have been attended with serious consequences. The locomotive Ami tender were two feet or More off the rails and Lay in a sort of a twist so that they were firmly locked a together in Oue mass. Such was the problem that train master Anthony found i Nisida confronted with when he arrived on the scene with the wreck outfit about dusk. Hour after hour passed before any tiling like order was gotten out of the tangled mass. Meanwhile the fruitless operation afforded entertainment for a Large crowd of townspeople who Cairn and went. It was impossible to eni ploy the steam Derrick to any advantage which had to work on the trestle and could not swing the engine nor reach the tender at All. Early in the evening the i. L. A w. Switcher was brought around from the rear and hitched to the tender with the Hope that it might he Able to go fit Hack upon the Tiack. The switcher was too Light and was unable to move the tender which was tightly locked in the mass. The Only Way in which the wrecking outfit could in employed to any advantage was by a Hawse ring the tester Hack until it could he got beside the rail when the a a re tracker a was used. Before this could be done however the tender had to he a a jacked up so Chat it could he uncoupled from the engine. Several hours were consumed on the tender alone. The engine weighed forty live tons and the Best the steam Derrick could do from its position on the wrestling was to raise the heavy mass so that it could let a blocked up in which position after innumerable breakdowns and delays it was successfully a Liaw Seredy Back to a a mint where it could be a a retracted Quot. It was after Midnight when the Job was dangerous runaway. A runaway occurred saturday night that took in a Large part of the Borough and was attended with several narrow escapes. The horse a Young animal attached to a buggy was being driven by a Young Man named Johns who resides in Kohv run hollow.

The horse was known to he afraid of the cars and to insure against Accident or. Johns jumped out and took the horse by the head. As the train came up the animal la came so badly frightened that the Driver could not hold him. While the horse was plunging the lady Lea red out of the Carriage and the next moment the animal broke Loose and dashed Down the Road toward town. The ruin away horse caused consternation As Dii Verless he dashed Down East Market Street.

I the reconstruction of North Mill Street was first agitated last september or a me year ago and now although the near approach of fall is at hand the actual beginning of the work is still indefinitely in the future. It begins to seem a matter of grave doubt with the vast amount of red tape that yet remains to he complied with whether or not the Street can be reconstructed this fall. It May be pleasing enough for persons to delude themselves we Atli the fancy that the Street can be finished this fall and that during the Winter instead of the rough Aud Muddy Road bed that has prove an annoyance in the past we will have smooth and clean a Laving to drive Over. At the same time it might be Worth w Hile to Stop and consider what remains to he done before a beginning can he made at the work. In the first a Dace it must he Home in mind that the state Highway depart ment Lias a number of Orojio Silous on hand similar to ours that it is crowded with work also that each of the counties interested have to await its turn. Add to this the fact that we Are near the Middle of september which scarcely More than two months during which such work May he pushed with any advantage. If All preliminaries were attended to it might be different. The plans and specifications Are not completed work upon them has not yet been started nor have we any Assurance that there will not be a further delay before they Are begun. Following precedent the specifications will be in the hands of the Printer a couple of weeks. So a. Without making allowance for probable delay it will he october before bids Are invited. The advertisements must run for Twenty Days and his along with other official formality to he complied with w ill have the effect of standing off the actual begin Ding of work until nearly the last of october or More Likely the beginning of november.
