I'lttston. April 12. Th'o Gazette thin
It Is some years since the N'ow York,
"tiriiuclinntm mid Western railroad wan
planned to rival tho Delaware. L,acKa
ivnnna and Western. The line was
built from New York to StroudshurR.
intl there a lrilt wan ealled. Tho I.aek
ivnmin proposed to haul the new com
pany's tonnage from the Lackawanna
and Wyoming- valleys to Stroutlsblin
I't an advantageous rate, and the offer
tens' ncrepted. Thus tiling!, inn nloiit
(111 llitce yean) uri, when the Wllkca
I'nrro and I'ustcrn lunnch of the New
Vciik. Susquehanna, and Western road
icns built front Stroiulsburj- to Wilkes
R.irrc. to tap the WyomliiR valley witli
ut the aid of the Lackawanna. This
plan provltiR .successful, a spur from
ibe new branch Into the Lackawanna
rculon wjh decided upon last fall, and
now Contractor John Shield, of Flein
Intjton, N. J., ban iOO men at work
liuildlnK the lino which is to complete
tho fystem from these two valleys to
The section worked In thin vicinity
Is in tho licurt of the dense woods back
of Smltltviile and familiarly known art
Fltzslmmons'. To arrive at thte point
you take the, ' Scranton electric line at
Hroa'il street for Smltlivlllc. Leaving
the car at the Florence breaker, you
50 directly east Into the woods, where,
upon taking the main road and continu
ing alonfe" the same for about three
miles,' rtll the time passing through a
rousli, hilly country and thick forest,
you come to, a lame cluster of work
men In eharpte of James Daltcn.
The road will contain many crooks
and curves.' This Is owiiiR to the ne
cessity of keeping to tho low lands.
On each side of the Fltzslmmons crew
of workmen are five other divisions of
workmen, eleven divisions In all, each
In charse of an overseer and In all
covering a stretch of territory ten
allies In length, this being the estimat
ed length of the new branch.
Not one tie or rail has yet been laid,
nor Is It probable that any will be put
In place for at least two monllic. It H
Intended first to complete the excava
tions and get the entire road bed in
readiness before anything In this line
wlll be commenced. From preuent ap
pVarahcen' (lie contractor Wilt liave a
Hlg Job on his hands to get it In readi
ness by that time. At Fitsslmmons'
there is a heavy grade. At the begin
ning of this grade it Is necessary to
make an extensive cut.
HEAVY ROCK Ct'TS.
The rock cuts along tho line are con
siderable. The heaviest of theso are
located on tho Jloorle side. When it Is
r,tted tliat 'fifteen tons of dynamite
are used'ttaily In the work the Immen
sity of the project undertaken can well
be imagined. In addition to the small
army of workmen employed, by far
tho greater, number, of whom are for
eigners, and receiving, we are told, less
than a dollar per day, ten steam drills
and ten 'steam holsters are also In
operation. A rough estimate of the
extent of the numerous cutn to be
made In the entire contract is placed at
1,000.000 yards. The consummation of
all of this work Is Intended as a short
cut for Coal traffic and the road, which
wiU'haye' but a single track. Is expect
ed to1 bb In readiness for rolling stock
In about four months' time. This does
not include the viaduct which it will
be necessary to erect at Meosle, which
will extend the time several months
Camps liave been established In tho
woods ami the place has been trans
formed Into a verllnulo settlement.
There ls'a boarding house, store house
for provisions, blacksmith shop, barns,
etc., and everything for such a spclud
cd arid uninteresting life.

WE THANK THE PEOPLE
For their great manifestation of confidence indicated by the tremendous outpouring of multitudes
since we'h'aye opened our store at 307 Lacka. Ave. It's a daily question, "Why are we ableto offer goods
at prices so much Jower than others?" It's simply this: We are doing business on a wholesale scale--buy-ing
in enormous quantities for spot cash, not always in a regular way, but from concerns in need of ready
money. i3!hen iy$ ars satisfied with a small profit. Besides, our business is growing larger every day, for
the reasori-haiAv6-keep faith with our people. Goods always go at the price advertised. It is just such unapproachable-prices
as the following that have made us famous, and this week's values will further tend to
spread our fame.
