A SHORT ROUTE FOR THE READING
It is Said tho Pennsylvania Rail
road Company Will Turn its
Short Route to tho P. & R.
It is rumorod, and there sooms to bo ex
cellent authority for tho report, that the
Pennsylvania Itailroad Company will
abandon its short routo to Poltsvillo and
surrender all its rights to it to tho Phila
delphia & Heading Itailroad Company.
Such a change is by no means improbable
Tho careful observer must know that the
short lino has boon a whito olephant on the
hands of tho Pennsylvania company.
Whilo tho lino has been ot vast benoGt to
tho p' oplo having occasion to Uavol from
town to Poltsvillo and intermediate point!,
and tho patronage lias i eon quito libera), it
Is safo to say tho company has lest monoy
by It. Tho original road wa3 hardly laid
before it had to bo abandoned on account
of the undormining by the P. & K. col
liery workings and now tho second road U
idle on account of other mlno operations of
tho same company. Obstacles havo fallen
in the path of tho Pennsylvania thick and
fr st and it is doubtful li any other com
pany would havo stood its ground so long.
To be frank, tho "Pennsy" short lino has
practically been a plaything for the L
high Valloy and should tho rumor that tho
routo will bo turned over to tho Reading
provotruotho Lehigh kiadergaiton will
boar a closo resemblance to Russol Sago's
olUco as it appeared after the bomb thrower
tossed himself into etornity; Thore is no
disputing tho fact that with a short lino to
tho county seat tho P. & R. railroad would
not only regain tho patronage It has lost,
but would rapidly cut into tho Lehigh
Valley business and inaugurate a lively
competition. It is said tho return to tho
Pennsylvania company, in caso tho deal is
mado will,botonnagoandinthis connection
tho "Pennsy" line through lrom Philadel
phia to "Wilkes-Barre, via Pottsvlllo, with
a connection wnh tho IlcadingafWotkorill

Tho mail kernal plantod by tho Ukrald

now springing abovo tho surfaco with a
Igor that promises a rapid and healthy
growth. All along tho lino tho cry for
ncroasod mall facilities is taking root and
wo aro proud to soo Postmastor Kcipor, ol
Ashland, taking such an activo part in the
niaitHr. A grand cry is raised for additional
mail facilities between Williamsport and
l'otlsvillo and tho attontion of tho pooplo is
called to tho fact tc-day, with tho popula
tion of tho region botwoen tho two points
named showing a gain of ovor 70,000 in
population, and tho cash receipts of tho
post offices showing an increase of ovor
8G0.C30, tho numbor ol mall trains leaving
ontt and vo;t romalns tho samo as twenty
years ago. With this condition of affairs it
is certainly necessary that ths business men
and others in ovory community should
take Mime stops towards haying tho Post
Oflico Department Improve tho mail
facilities. Ono improvomont asked is ad
ditional mail Eorvico by which train No.
1, leaving Pottsvillo at 7:10 a. in., and
train No. 10, loaving Williamsport at 3:55
p. m., will become regular mail trains, so
that a lettor mailod at or wost of Pottsvillo,
in tho morning, for "Williamsport, would
be delivered on tho samo day Instead of
arriving thero too lato for tho afternoon
dolivory, as at present. Also, tho loltors
mailed east of "Williamsport aftor 0 o'clock
a. m. could bo forwarded on tho afternoon
of tho day they woro mailod, instoad of
laying In their respective post offices until
too following day.
But this is not tho only improvomont
very much needed. Thore should bo

vania and Lohigh Valloy from Pottsvillo
(via Delano) to Ashland, covering a popu
lation of about 100,000 and embracing St.
