BETTER STREET OAR
SERVICE TOR MARION.
While, tho city council is fighting
over the question of street and
sidowalk improvements, it might bo
well fcr;t to 'take into consideration
tho almininuhlo street car service
which is just now bein dealt out
tn tho citizens. Marion prides lier-
self upon 1hi) many improvements
which she iossesses, her miles and
miles of paved streets and her still
greater number of miles of sand
stone sJdewalks. It is indeed good
tv.i ,fln pitizen. that tho city has
nil of these improvements now, for
were it not for these tho man who
wishes to go up town would be in
a preLy predicament.
Marion is the best city of its sizct
in Ohio and just now it is being
furnished about tho joorest street
r-iilrnnil service of nnv pity, be it!
cvpr so smnll or oven so large. 'J'ho
efficiency of the local car service
has been reduced and reduced since
the C. D. & M. gained control of
tho local ilines until now there is
n very little left. It is true that
Dm purs have been iml into some
better condition, but .tho hand
some, new, modern pars which were
promised hon,t five yearns ago
fliavo never 'materialized. At Die
ouo time, one car was doing all
of tho work for .the north and south
parts of tho c'lly. Tills meant that
ei car went south about every forty
five minutes, provided it was not
held up three or four four limes at
Din railroad prossimrs. Tho service
afforded east and west is better,
but it i not what it should bo. On
the eat and wcjt lines, i(i cars
are. much o small o accommodate
tho passengers at the I Line of the
day when tho workmen of tho tdiops
ana going to and from work. Wo
men who aro compelled to ride on
tho ears must crowd in past a plat

the car who is enough of a gentle
man to give her a seat.
The company says that .the traf
fic in tho city does not justify a

but it is also truo that the patron
age will never bo better nntil some
better acionwnodation is furnished.
Good cars on a schedule wh'Hi
would give a fiw or eight min
ute service to all parts of tho city
would scon educate the people to
use the cars. With the present no
commodatie,u no person who is able
to walk wa!1 think of standing on
a street corner for from. t?u to

of tlio Marlon County Medical So.
cloty aroused both men to anger.
When the physicians returned from
their calls, they boarded tho same
car, ami tlio quarrel wa renewed,
finch claims that tho other was re
sponsible for tho renewal. Dr. Crane
claims that r. Urltton used Im
proper language In Hie car In tho
presence of Indies, and Dr. Urltton
denies It, saying that lio hnd refined
to say anything to Dr. Crano until
the latter Insisted on making trouble,
and at no time was his language Im.
Crane accused Ilr. Urlt
ton of being partly responsible for
tho hrenk in tho ranks of tho Conn,

Paid that ho was crazy, whereupon
