For the 445th time it is loudly and unblushingly aunounced^that the Salisbury street railway has consummated a deal whereby an other ten days will not pass with out actually moving cars being seen going to and fro burdened with human freight. We have always hoped that each of these hot-air explosions would finally fool us and that the cars would actually appear on the scene, but disappointment has followed so regularly that our people have gotten to the point of genuine doubt, and if this last rumor ma terializes it will come as a real surprise to many. Our people are hoping, however, that the line will be built and, that if they are f.A am!™ some fine mornim? and hear the motorman’s gong, the conductor’s “all ’board,” the hum of the electric current and the rolling of cars, their cup of joy will be entirely full. This last report is to the effect that S. N. Blake, of Providence, R. I , who has been in the city for several days, closed a deal with said railway company for the “immediate,” if not sooner, com pletion and equipment of the line, aleo the laying of a lot of gas mains and the extenson of the j electric light service, taking in I Spencer, for which in turn the; said railway company will turn | over to the American Gas and Electric Co., of which Mr. Blake is president $150,000 in the com-' pany’s bonds.
