Tho samo plan o? running tho
street cars, ?yvor tho new pavement
ls hoing used on N'orth Main street as
.was used on the other streets. The
curs aro being nun further and fur
ther down Main street each day- The
I carB are running to Trlbble street to
Iday and the regular schedules will he
resumed como time next week. This
will be a great burden from the shoul
ders of tho traction company officials.
T'hero has been soma interrupted
service In the: city for the past six
months, and thc atrcet car officials,
motormen and conductors, and es
pecially the public will cortalnly be
glad when the cars are runci-jg on
al! lines ca regular schedules.
Anderson has been greatly Incon
venienced by the continued transferr
ing, necessitated by the car track
paving, nnd with Hie ?nd of this In
Bight, things appear much brighter
to tho man whose dinner depends on
whether ho caa catch a street car to
his 5icme, and get back in an hour.
Other paving work is being push
ed along satisfactorily. All asphalt
work will be completed today, when
the last of. West Whltnor street ls
finished. This bas been one of the
tedious Jobs oh; Whit'.er street, due to
the many crossings and intersections
of tracks of . be street railway and
hos taken considerable time:' Only
North Main street remains now to be
completed and the paving contract
will be done.
