The first Baltimore & Ohio pas
senger train to reach Mt. Vernrin
slnco the high waters arrived Friday
afternoon from Newark. It was tho
regular afternoon passenger, No. 3,
duo a,t 2:42 and left Newark on
schedule time. It left after a short
stop aud tho expectation was that It
would continue north as far at Butler
whom the company has had difficulty
in getting suOlcleut material aud forco
of men to satisfactorily conduct the
work ot repairing the tracks. The
passenger will leave Mtl Vornon on
tho roturn trip to Newark this even
ing at 5:57 o'clock.
The large forco of laborers which
has, beon employed at the washout
here was taken to Butler and will be
put on the lob there. Work Is stili
progressing here, but a much smaller
force of men Is engaged than hereto
fore. A, pile driver was at work at
the south ond of "Slldey" bridge Fri
day morning and the bridge was
braced sufficiently to make It safe for
the crossing of a locomotive.
It is hoped by the Baltimore ana
Ohio company that the road will be
entirely open on the Sandusky divi
sion by Sunday. Train service was
not hampered by the flood betweon
Sandusky and Mansfield and It Is be
lieved that tho tracks can be repairen
siilllclontly by Sunday to allow at least
partial passenger service the entire
distance. Train No. 3 will mnko tho
return trip between Mt. Vernon ano
Newark each day until regular service

ing day aud night to restore the line
so .that a train can get through, but
the loss ol the Gumbler bridge and
the exceptionally .bad wasb-out at

A speclul meeting or the city coun
cil was called Thursday evening ror
the purpose or taking some a'ctlon
relative to tho situation that will re
suit In the west end ot the city If
the B. & O. railroad road-bed Is re
built south ot the "Slldey" bridge.
Various means or disposing of the
water during floods wore discussed
but the only pratlcal means, it was
decided, Is to have an opening of at
least ono hundred feet In the road
bed to let the water through. A com
mittee of three of the council was ap
pointed to meet with the county com
missioners, the city solicitor and, a
committee of west end property own
ers at 9 o'clock Friday morning to
discuss the subject.
A meeting of west side citizens and
a committee from the city council
met in the office of City Solicitor
Leonard Friday morning and discuss
ed the situation.
A number of resolutions were pre
sented 'and finally a resolution wan
adopted and will be reported back to
a specinl meeting ot the city council
to bo hold thlB evening.
In substance tho resolution pro
vides that a conference bo held In this
city nt the earliest possible time be
tween offlcials ot tho Baltimore and
Ohio and Pennsylvania railroads and
the county commissioners. It ts
thought that after the ground has
boon gone over fully that nn nmlcablo
adjustment can be made and thnt
arches may be put under the tracks to
caryy the water when tho river over
flows Its banks.
Many west side citizens wanted
the city solicitor to proceed with a
suit to compel the B. & O. railroad
company to put in the arches at once.
Tho solicitor refused to bring the suit,
stating that, in his opinion, the court
would not grant such an order.
