THE TROLLEY. Merger In North Jersey Be lieved To Reach Through The State. HAS IT MAPPED OUT. Believed That Middlesex & Somerset Trac tion Conpany is Included, But Officials ?f That Road Deny The Rumor-^Entire Route Said To Be Planned? Great Pos sibilities. There may be more in the new North Jersey traction merger than appeals on the surface, according to reports, and one of the possibilities is a through 'line from New fcYork to Philadelphia in which the Middlesex and Someisetand Trenton-New Bruns wick Traction lines are mentioned as part of the main line. For some time pant maps and prospectuses have been quietly circulated in this State and presumably in other States, under the title of the New York & Philadelphia Eleotrio Railway. Officials of the local company said today that they had nothing to do with the New York & Philadelphia Electric Company except that this line and the Trenton-Brunswick line Were connecting lines on the route from New York to Philadelphia. They were not identified in any way with them. The route oovered is that now occu pied by the North Jersey Street Rail way Company, from New York to ^Elizabeth, from Paterson and Cald iwell to Newark, and from the Oranges f to Newark, after which the line cross es Union and Middlesex counties direct l to Metuchen, there to connect with ?he Middlesex & Somerset Traction ?pmpany's line to New Brunswick Hd Milltown, and over the Trenton w Brunswick Railroad from Mill Hrn to Hamilton Square. Hit this point a direct cut across Hintry to near Bordentown is made Kd the route of the Camden & Tren L Railway shown to Camden, ?he Middlesex & Somerset lineB BMffaglM^U^ferth Araboy^from Individual Saving seldom amounts to much.

The Elizabeth, Plainfield <!fc Central Jersey Traction Company's line from Elizabeth to Plainfield and Dunellen and the Middlesex & Somerset's line from Dunellen to Bound Brook also form a part of this mysterious "New York & Philadelphia Electric Rail way's line. The new line, including those now existing, has been drawn over a State map of New Jersey in heavy ink, and then photographed, and the objeot is evidently to create the impression that all of the lines are built and in operation. f There was also incorporated recently the Elizabeth, Perth Amboy & Long Branch Bailroad, and, as some of the North Jersey Traction people were supposed to be interested in that pros peot it was believed that a road would be constructed toward this city rather than toward Perth Amboy. The title does not prevent them from building elsewhere. The Camden & Trenton Railway differs in gauge from the Trenton & New Brunswick and the North Jersey roads, and it- will be necessary to change the gauge if oars are to be ran all the wav through. At present it is a five foot gauge, while the Trentpn & New Brnnswiok is four feet eight and one-half inches. There are some great possibilities in the proposed line. If it is operated in conjunction with the Philadelphia rapid transit it may be possible to run through the proposed tunnel under the Delaware at Camden and deliver New York passengers in the oentre of Philadelphia.
