VOL. V. No. -61. FOR THE RIGHT OF WAY. BOTH COMPANIES APPEAR BEFORE FREELAND COUNCIL. A Spirited Fight Is Going On to Capture a Valuable Franc-bine—Councilman Are in No Hurry to Grant the tine of the Streets Unless It Will Benefit the Town. The special meeting of the borough council to consider the applications for the right of way through the streets from the two electric railway companies was held on Monday evening. After accepting the applications the members decided to allow the representatives of the different companies the privilege of making verbal explanations, in addition to their applications, in order that the matter would be thoroughly understood. Harry E. Sweeney, of Drifton, for the Union Passenger Company, said the men whom he represents had milch ex perience in building street railways. He would guarantee that work would he com menced as soon as possible after the council grants the right of way. It was true the company had no charter yet, as they did not feel disposed to spend money in that way until they were sure they would get permission to build the road through Freeland. They would not ask for two years to complete it, but would push it ahead at once and do all they could to tiring trade to Frteland, not to take it away. He repeated the statement made at a former meeting that the company would also operate an electric light plant here. Alvin Markie, of llazleton, represent ed the Hazleton and North Side Com pany, and said they intended to build a road from Pleasant Hill to Upper Le high. The company was chartered last September under an act of 1889, which gives them the right of way through Hazle and Foster townships and on Cen tre. Walnut, Pine and Johnson streets in Freeland. He said the council could grant to another company the privileges asked, but that company could not get a charter from the state to operate it. Mr. Markie further stated that the road would not come under control of any railroad company while he was in terested in it. The North Side Com pany, he said, was owned solely by him self. Others were named as members of it in the charter, hut the entire capi tal was furnished by him, and he would have it in operation within the time specified (two years) in the application, and would give bonds to that effect. He would also furnish light to the town if it was wanted. Like the railway, how ever, the power and everything else would come from llazleton. Mr. Markie was followed by Matt Long, of llazleton, who spoke in favor of Mr. Markle's company, as it was the one that had the charter. Mr. Sweeney again took the floor and i stated that none of the men in his com pany were interested in railroads. They we e ready to start immediately, and if Freeland's council passes a resolution giving them the right of way they would very quickly determine by law that they t have as good a right as any other com pany to operate a street railway here. Jos. Neuhurger made a few remarks in favor of the Union Company, stating that it seemed they were more disposed to help the town than the other. I). J. McCarthy followed with some good advice to the council. He caution ed tliem t lie careful in granting such a valuable privilege to any one. He would not be in favor of giving the fran chise to either without gettingsomething ; in return. Councilman Williamson preferred to go slow in the matter, and spoke of the a Ivisability of holding a citizens' meet ing to otitain the views of the taxpayers The members decided to present both ordinances to Borough Solicitor Hayes and to take no action in the matter until lie gives them advice The meeting adjourned to he called again upon order of President Dooris. Schemes for New Counties. There are two new county projects on foot: That to form a now counry out of portions of Schuylkill and Luzerne, to be known as Hazle, with llazleton for the county seat, and that to make a new county out of portions of Allegheny, Fayette, Washington and Westmore land, to he known as Monongahela. The first-named scheme will he press ed upon the legislature with great energy. It has been a very lively issue in the affairs of the southern part of Luzerne county for several years, and in the twenty-first district at the late election a senator favorable to the project was chosen, and it will have able and restless champions in both houses. In and about Wilkes-Barre, the county seat, there naturally is very strong opposition to another division of Luzerne, as it is only about fifteen years since Lackawanna was carved out of her territory. In the other parts of Luzerne not included in the territory of the proposed new county, however, ther is much feeling in favor of the division, and it is being encouraged on the ground that separa tion will considerably reduce the ex penses of the remaining county. What becomes of the Luzerne scheme will depend upon the character and en durance of the efforts made in the lobby at Harrishurg, It is not a matter in which the people at. large or their re presentatives in the legislature can he expected to have a favorable interest. Natural inclination would he to oppose the creation of new counties save in instances where some real necessity ex isted or some great public advantage was to he derived from it. The arguments in behalf of the new county of Hazle liave not yet reached this importance. Just as the matter stands, therefore, there is nothing to encourage the organi zation of the new county. Possibly its advocates have not yet advanced all their reasons in its favor, hut it is clear they have not advanced enough. If they can make it solely a question of politics, they may have some luck, but they are in great danger of falling be tween the legislature and the governor. —Phila. Press. SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. A Writer Makes a Few Remarks About the Power of Supervisors. Freeland, Pa., Jan. 18, 1893. EDITOR TRIBUNE. —Will you, or any learned lawyer of Freeland or Hazleton, inform and acquaint the citizens of the law that invests the supervisors with power to grant the right of way to any company or corporation to build any kind of a railway through the streets, independant of even consulting the wishes and desire of the citizens of the towns through which the road is to go? If there is no law granting them the power, truly they have overstepped their mark, and should be called to account for the act. CITIZEN. [An act approved May 14, 1889, by Governor Beaver, gives to the "local authorities" of cities, boroughs and townships the privilege of giving such consent. Supervisors are the "local authorities" of townships, consequently their actions cannot be disputed. Citi zens or taxpayers need not be consulted by them in such matters. In their dis tricts they possess the same power as borough or city councils do in boroughs or cities. It is a poor law to say the least, but is only one of the many hun dreds that are passed and approved at every session giving corporations unlim ited power as soon as the consent of one or two men is obtained.

A bill of s2l for drying the hose used at the Greek Cath olic church fire was ordered paid. As this tire was outside the borough limits the expenses incurred must be paid by the company itself. HIGHLAND DOTS. Work was suspended at No. 3 slope all last week on account of the cold wave which struck here. The carpenters are working on the houses putting them in good condition. They needed , it Ladly. If our foreign friends keep on leaving us as they are at present the crop here will be light In the spring.

We suggested a remedy some time ago. Why not act on it boys, and. enjoy life while it lasts? Mrs. Charles MeGill returned on Tuesday from a visit to her son Hugh, at Mt. Carmel. Walking on the railroad track to and from Freeland and Highland is something that many of our residents indulge In. At this time ol the year persons have their heads and ears well covered, and often fail to hear trains coming behind them. It is u dangerous practice, and should be uvoided at all times.

Tim Roail Hot worn Hifffhlund ami I-"lre land the Scene of Another Outrage. On Saturday evening the Highland road was the scene of another cowardly robbery. The victim this time was Arthur Ross, a quiet and peaceable citi zen, who in company with his wife were returning to their home from Freeland about 9.30 o'clock. When they had reached the railroad bridge which cros ses the highway a short distance out of Freeland, Mr. Ross was halted by six men, three of whom had shotguns. Two of the men seized him while the the third covered him with a gun and carried him a short distance from the road. Here he was thrown on the ground with arms extended and one of the men stood with a foot on each elbow, while the other ransacked iiis clothing. Not a word was spoken by any of the men. and so quietly was Mr. Ross captured th t his wife, who was walking a few yards ahead, had not the least idea of anything being wrong. When they hail relieved him of his watch, a pocket hook which contained about $1.06, mil flier, tobacco box, knife, two pair of shoes which he had bought in Freeland, two railroad tickets to Haz leton, a check for time worked at Stock ton which was due on Monday, and his overcoat, they left hira lying in the snow. Mr. Ross attempted to rise when they were a few yards away. One of them noticed him, returned and made a kick at his face, but us Mr. Ross dropped his head he received the blow on the shoul der. His assailant then left him and [ Mr. Ross saw no more of them. The next morning he and his wife ! returned to the scene of the robbery in hopes of recovering some of the stolen • articles, hut not a trace of anything could be found. lie has no idea who parties were and says he wpuld not attempt to identify any person in j connecton with it, but thinks it would he a good idea for the citizens to take charge of this road and make an exam ple of some of these cowardly robbers liiHtullation of OllicerH.
