NEW CAR LLNE WELCOMED
Interborough's Entry Into Bronx
May Improve Union Service.
Perhaps the greatest incentlve towards having
the Union Railway Company provide The Bronx
with better trolley service will be the entry into
the local fleld of the Interborough company, whlch
ls to operate six lines of trolley routes in various
parts of the borough.

An Jdea of the methods employed in the conduct
of the lines of the Union may be had by a reference
to an action taken by Controller Grout thls month.
In the franchise which the company received for
runnlng car.c _____ McComb. Dam Bridge it is
provided tliat a headway of twenty minutes be
malrrtained. The penalty for each violation is $50.
Inspeetors from the Controller's offlce discovered
two oecasions where the headway proviso was
pleasantly ignored. As a result the Union l_.il
way Company was called on to pay the city $100,
which it did without protest.
Just how it may adjust headways on lines where
no penalties are enforceable may be readily lmag

pany ls buiiding will all be crosstown routes, wi'.l

It is true that the Union Railway Company has
double traeked some of its lines, notably the one
to Mount Vernon. but common business prudence
demanded thls if cars were to make the run in
any sort of time. V. _th the old slngle tr.-ick, with
tta innum.-_r.le switc Ues. cars were often stalled
from fifteen minutes to half an hour waiting for
the car scheduled to meet it to arrive. All the
while the pay of motorman and conductor went
on at so much an hour. This fact finallv
n _iled to the Union Railway. _.r.d now the Mount
Vernon lin- is double tracked throughout ann the
run is made in about an hour. In the rush hours
on all lines cars pass al"ng crowded to the doors.
with men riding on the platforms and bumpers, ln
perii of their lives.
Onlv last Wednesday the State Railroad C om
mlndon, in giving out its report on the hearing
held before it on the Union's service, recommended
tbat shorter headwav be maintained on the various
lines To this misht be added more and bigger
car? and an intellig~nt management of the road
which would know how to deal with eongestion,
blocks and similar interruptions to traffic.
SOFT COAL NUISANCE.
: Westchester Smothered in Smoke
from the New-Haven Trains.
The people of the Westchester and Connecticut
: Buburbs are cdmpiaining again against the use of
? soft coal in the loccmotives of the New-York, New
' Haven & Hartford Railroad.
Mayor Edward F. Brush and Corporation Counsel
? Roger M. Sherman on Friday served notice on
i President Mellen that unless the company stops
using bituminous coal on the locomotives passing
| Mount Vernon the engineers and flremen will be
taken from the cabs by the police and prosecuted.
The Mount Vernon city authorities served the same
notlce on the company about a year ifo, but it
seems to have had only a temporary effect. The
locomotives are again pouring nut a black smoke
which covers the towns and cities along the line
like a cloud. causing much annoyance. Women
commuters complain after a trip to New-York and
back their gowns have to go to the cleaners for a
week. Speclal complaint ls made against tiie Mer?
chants' Express. whlch the commuters say ia a
babitual violator of the smoke ordinance.
DEMOCRATS GETTING IN LINE.
Frederick H. Allen, chairman of the committee.
haa called the Democratic County COnvention to be
held ln St. John's Hall, White Plains. Thursday.
It is rumored that the committee has adjusted
its dlfferences with E. W. Fiske, of Mount Vernon,
and M. J. Dillon. of New-Rochelle, and that this
fall may see both of these former leaders again
running for Mayor in their re. pective cities on
platforms pledged to reform. Ex-Mayor Walsh is
also in line and will probably make the race again
RATS WALK WIRES.
A graceful exhlbition of wire walking was given
by a number of rats at Sligo yesterday afternoon.
An excise officer, who was cycling by the Town
Hall happened to look up ;__-d saw an enormous
rat making its way along an overhead electrlc
He pointed it out to the Town Hall officials ar.d
they watched nearly 150 of the rats pass along until
they were hidden from sight by u lofty flour mill.

How and Why
This Immense Business
FIRST. It it genuine merit onlv that makes the permanent m::e s.one
of life. Superficial merit never lives. The public gaze soon pierces the
strongest armor of deception. It is, therefore, what the Sterlmg Piano
really is. its permanent place as a true interpreter of music, that of neces.ity
has been the basis upon which our great success has been builded.
SECOND. Business success cannot be permanent withe -:t confidence,
and confidence in us has grown with familiarity, because the very prinaples
of honest and fair dealings with which Charles A. Sterling founded the busi?
ness in 1860 have continued through the 45 }'ears of our phenomenal growth.
THIRD. Every one who deals with us must have permanent sat:-faction
or we do not consider the transaction closed. It would be foolish to cla-.rn
that we don't make mistakes. because with a large staff of salesmen an i
emploves handling a vast number of Pianos every week, it would be strange
for luiman nature to be alwavs right. Never hesitate to make kno-.vn tO _?
the slightest cause for complaint. We are more mterested m nghtmg it
than you can possibly be.
FOURTH. Moderate prices. You are dealing direct with the manu
facturers and thus always in close touch with those who are interested in
the Piano as long as it lives.
Sterlings Are tlie Standard of Musical Excellence
Confidence That Grovvs With Familiarity
Permanent Satisfaction Guaranteed
Moderate Prices and Terms to Suit
