MANY AT WORK The Lolli»;li Valley railroad com pany, with a large force or men, start ed work Saturday morning near the United Lead Works and by night had constructed a line of railroad track parallel to, and on the east side of State street, nearly to Maurer. When a tree blocked the way, the track was built around it and the men worked like Trojans to complete the stretch of track. The officials in the nearby factories and the employes regarded the work with much interest and to them the work was mysterious. An official at one of the plants said that it was pos sible that the tracks were being laid to intercept another company which intended to run tracks there. Others expressed various opinions. Yartlnuister Blocker, of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company, settled the question this morning by stating that tfie track was the leader of a number of tracks that would be laid there to receive the cars which were consigned to the adjacent factories, and that the reason it had been put down so rapidly was because they were able to secure a large force of men at that time. Mr. Blocker says that the Lehigh Valley owns a right of way from Ga deks to Maurer and that they Intend building a yard there so that cars can be stored, as on sidings. The cars have formerly been kept in the old Creosote factory yard, but under the new arrangement considerable time and trouble will be saved. Work on the other tracks that are to be laid alongside of the present track will be continued until the yard is completed. The track that la now laid is connected with the company's line neai the lead works.
