Company Will be Allowed to
Come into the Borough.
The franohise allowing the Jersey
Central Traction Company to run
straight down Broadway to Borden
<{ town avenue, where they will connect
with M. & S. traction line, we are
positively assured by one of the Coun

after all, instead of skirting the town
and on their own terms as far as the
rflpte is concerned. Now it is up to
tne M. & S. Traction Company to go
to the end of their route as first laid
out, if they have any desire to please
the people, and that will add greatly
? to the rejoicing of the citizens of tho
borough. The day the Jersey Central
rnns tho first car through the borough
should bo made a gala day and a holi
day of course, so the people can cele
brate it.

WASHINGTON. .Tune 27.? Sir Thom
as Lipton in this city spent one of the
pleasantest days of iiis life, according
to his own testimony. He can hope
none better, he says, unless he should
happen to see the third Shamrock cross
the line a winner. President Roosevelt
reiterated his statement of two years
ago, when he met Sir Thomas, that if
the cup must go the grief would be less
severe, knowing that it went in the
good ship of such a true and persistent
sportsman as Sir Thomas Lipton. Just
before taking the train for New York
Sir Thomas took one lingering look at J
the statue of Victory surmounting the
dome of the capital and, with a sigh,
said to General Corbln. who was bid
ding him goodby, "At least, general, I
should be complimented because you
have found it necessary to brace up [
your Victory in my honor."

No definitely unfavorable element Is
apparent in tbe business situation. but
there are several uncertainties that w

tribution of merchandiae. the long pe
riod of low temperature baa curtailed
trade in dry goods, clothing and other
seasonable lines. Stocks have accumu
lated. and prospects for semiannual In
ventories are not altogether encourag
ing. Regarding crop progress, there la
also sufficient uncertainty to maintain
high prices for grain, while the manip
ulated position of cotton la a menace to
the industry. Labor controversies still
harass many branches of business, tba
building trades of this city and the
textile mills at Philadelphia being com
pletely demoralized, while minor strug
gles are in progress elsewhere.
Even in finance there is some fjuen
tion as to the future, although money
is now abundant and comparatively
easy. In two months over $22,000,000
in gold has been exported, and ratea
of exchange do not yield materially,
While a decline of about $24 per sbar?
