The auto stage line was itistitu'-d
by Gorst over a year ago and hu
definitely shown what an auto will do
to n railroad whore they arc brought
into eomnetitiou. Gorst instituted
him 700. Later he was forced to
increase the number of machines to
three, ami he forced the railroad to
Iiourlj trips at half the old fare.
When Gor.st started the auto stage
line the train service on the Bariium
line was very unsatisfactory. Very
few trips were ran, the rotOid trip
fare being ."50 cents. Later Itanium
was forced to put his train on a hour

fare to 'Jo cents. lSarnum attempted
at one time to run an auto stage line

Several times during the past year
the conditions existing in the various

city health officer repeatedly took
the matter up with the board but
failed to secure any tangible result
although the school board soveral
times promised to have conditions
remedied. The Greater Sredford club
