EXTEHISIONISSIIBJECT OF MUCH DISCUSSION Opposition Developing to Addition al Tracks in Market Square and Market Street Formal notice has been given of the application by a subsidiary of the Valley Hallways company for permis sion to extend a third track in Market Square from Strawberry to Market street and two tracks in Market street from the Square to Front street. This step is preliminary to the regular ordi nance which will be Introduced in the City Council, if the Public Service Commission grants the (lecessary cer tificate of public convenience. Considerable opposition has already been expressed to the proposed exten sions inasmuch as they will involve additional trackage in Market Square and two dead ends, so to speak, in Market street as sidings. Many of those who have discussed the situation believe that the only reasonable solution of the terminal dif ficulties of the Valley Railways com pany in this city is the use of property i in Walnut street for terminal facili | ties. It has been pointed out on sev eral occasions that the garage at the I corner of Walnut street and River al ley with some additional property as may he needed will solve the question in the most satisfactory manner. There is certain to be public protest against the extensions as indicated in the ap plication. There are no accommodations at the present time for the passengers on the cross river lines and it is the opin ion of men who have looked itno the situation that a terminal in Walnut street would not only obviate the. necessity of more track In two promi nent streets but would furnish wait ing room facilities for the company in Harrisburg.
