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.

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. ED.]

Walking on the railroad track to and from

of our residents indulge In. At this time ol the

covered, and often fail to hear trains coming
behind them. It is u dangerous practice, and
should be uvoided at all times.

WAYLAID AND ROBBED.
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

charge of this road and make an exam
