Last night un interesting mooting o! '
the council committee on utroeta, uilova ,
und grudos was hold at the city build- !
Ing, tho main subject to bo considered j
being the proposed double truck on
North Main street for the Wheeling t
electrical railway company. It was well f
General Manager Jolly, of the street ]
railway company, Messrs, John J. 1
Jones, 1). G. Morgan, tho Messrs, Stifel, t
Dr. lluglett and Mr. Alfred Caldwell
wuro present, in additiou to tho membors
of tho committee, who were '
Messrs. Dobbins, Milligun, Grimui, |
Knoke uud Krytor. City Enginoer v
Uoge was also presont part of the time. .
Tho committee wuitod some tiino for .
Mr. Kenny, tho First ward moiubor of '
tho committee, but ho failed to appear. t
Tho object of tlie meeting waa aimed, >
and Mr. Caldwell waa given the floor, j
Ho stated tho objections of the reaidenta (|
of North Main Btrout to. the double j
track, and alao preaanted a formal petition,
numerously signed by prominent
property holders on tho atreet, including
tho gentlemen present and others,
requesting that the franchise bo not '
It was roprosentod that all household J
supplies for residents of the street must, '
owing to arrangement of the alleys ami c
the atcep grades, ho received from Main 8
atreet, and to put another track there 11
would tnako the spaco betweeu tho aide- j!
wulk and the track so narrow that '
wagons would not havo room. |J
Mr. Caldwell further objected to the a
fact that the franchises of tho Wheoling J"
company are porpotual. The residents 11
along the line in dispute, he said, ob- 0
jectod to giving so valuablo a franchise R
away torover. Aa to tho company's ?,
claim that it could not construct tho 1
lino up Murkot street, ho did not think H
it hud much weight. Tho company did J1
not want to pay for ground over which 11
it could construct its tracks to connect ?
on Main street. This ground was tin- f*
occupiod, und would not bo very "
costly. A little trestling, also, would a
obviate the objection as to tho grudes.
Mr. Caldwell spoke vory oxhauitively
and covorod about all tho points that r
have ever boon advanced, including the ii
fact that Main atreet residents do not
want tho second track, and Market
street people do. So far as the'quostion
of revenues is concernod, ho held that n
thoro would bo even moro income on h
the Market stroot loop than if tho
tracks wore paralleled on Main. If the
track could not bo operated up Murkot v
and down a cross street, say Fourth or }!
l'lfth, to Main, ami with safety, tlioy u
could to operated up Main and from n
that Btrcot up to Market. ?
Mr. Jolly said the formor streots,
alloys and grades committeo had gone
over tlio lino with him, and accompanied
by tlio city engineer, who carefully
surveyed the grades and curves.
Tlio members of tlio committee agreed f
with liiui that tho only pructicablo y
point at which a connection could bo ,,
mndo from Market to Main was at Sev- p
enth. Tho grado there was over eloren ?
nor conk To go to Coal Btreot was no J,
hotter. Tho street was vory narrow, 0
und tho grado to and from it steep,while
to reach it would roquiro two right
angled turnings. The surveys mado by
Knginoer llogo had bcon submitted to
the best railroad onginoora in tlio coun- ?
try, and tlioy unanimously said it T.
would bo folly to attempt to opnrato '
such a lino. Tho dangor would be bo
groat that if an accident should happen,
as it probably would, tho company
would bo cursed by tho poople (or recklessness,
and doubtloss come in for
heavy damages for Its cars running f
through houses and killing n lot of j>
poople. Tho company would bo glad 1'
to adopt tho loop routoby way of Mar- tl
kot street if it wore practicable, but it
Dr. It, W. Huzlott prosontod a strong b
array of arguments on bohalf of tho cit- ?
izons who object to tho double track. n
llo alatod tho importunco of leaving
room open on tho stroot for wagons to
deliver ice, moat, coal, vegetables and &
other things, and hold that thoro was
moro danger from a double truck than
a stoop grade, llo said tho objoction to
tho stoop grndo to or from Market stroot
was moro suntimontul than real, llo
thought that tho Market street lino was
Mr. Jolly ropoutod that tho company
would bo glad to go up Markot if it "
could, but the opinion of practical onginoors
was that it could not bo done. L
llo invited those pre-ont to ask him
any questions that occurred to thorn.
Mr. Stifol askod what objection thoro
was to running oloctric cars on one lino,
with switches, as was done several
yoars ago. Mr. Jolly said ho thought
lie had already oxnluinod as to that
with one track a car was likely to bo
disabled on tho track, and this throws j
tho wholo system out. With u double
track another car simply comos along (
and pushes tho disabled ono on. ^
Mr. fctifol?Unfortunately, many e
North Wheeling people think that because
tlioy did not do whut tho stroot
car cotupuny dictated, tho company <
has put on tho mule cars to punish '
Mr. Jolly disclaimed any such in- u
tontion. llo said tho company had put u
on tho sorvlce on North Main stroot booaoio
it was tho bost they could do. J
They did not claim any ci edit for tho *
service. If tho council and tho citltoni ?
thought tho franchise uskod was not
justly duo, or that tho proposed Improvement
would not bo of advantage, t
tho company did not want It. Tho pro- I
posod tracks would cost $15,(XX) or $L'0,- _
IXX), and If tho company could not ho "
pormittod to expend tills sum there, It
would doubtloss expend It olsowhoro. ~
It hail not monoy in such nuiuilltlos its ~]
to want to throw it away If there was J
any doubt ol its being prolllnblv invested.
To oporato the North Wheollng
lino profitably It rauit bo known to
the public Hut can would leave promptly
and arrive promptly, and tho service
must bo as good thoro as olsowhoro on ..
He wai askod if It was the dosign to
run all cars through to North Wheeling,
and s^lil that it was; tho object was to
avoid all transfers.
A map was produced, nnd two places .
were polnlod out whoro the tracks ,
could bo laid diagonally across lots and
avoid sharp curvos, It was suggested
by Mr, Caldwell that the care could 1i
run up Main stroet as now, thence on <>
Fourth or Fifth to Market, and down to
Tenth, thence to Main as n?w, and
Dr. Hadett thought It would be very
JQwiae inr the company to oad the
oop further down than Fifth street,

ravine would bo entirely prac- \

Finally tho delegation of visitors left,
llr. Dobbins moved to amend the ordimnco,

Another rnembor thought tho comnitteo
ought to go up and inspect the

vas withdrawn. It was made because

Jorpotual. The committee' resolved

Throughout the discussion therewere I
miny references to tho fact that the
