RAILROADS IISAGREL Rutland and brlewnre and Hudson at Odds Over S lulling; Facilities. Kutland, Oct. 8 It is understood that there is danger of a rupture in the rela tions between the Rutland and Delaware & Hudson railroad companies over the "matter of station and freight and switch ing facdlties in this city. The Rutland railroad has for many years had absolute control of the station here and the Delaware & Hudson has been in the habit of paying a stated amount each year for the privilege of using the same. The sum of $3,000 Is paid for the sta tion together with half of the combined salaries of the two ticket agents and other employees and the total amount which U paid over to the Rutland by the Delaware fc Hudson for its accommodations here i understood to be In the vicinity of 40,000 annually. Now that the Rutland railroad has no station, or almost none, at this point the Delaware fc Hudson people are beginning to kick on the size of their bill. It is un derstood that negotiations have been going on regarding this point but that the Rut land road is unwilling to give in, and it is said to be among the possibilities that the Delaware & Hudson will break off nego tiations and erect its own station and put in switching tracks of its own. The local railroad men will give out nothing on the matter, however, and infor matism on the matter has been obtained from a genii-official source. OSTEOPATHS MEET. I D.

A opeeial meeting of the city council was held la evening after the city meet ing for the purpose of hearing representa tives of the Orange County Telephone Co. who asked for an extension of time In which to accept their franchise. It was voted to give them ten days from date, but Mr. Spear stated it was doubtful If the company would accept even now unless the annual rental of $1 asked by the city was reduced to 50 cents.

C, Blanchard to build an addition to the rear of the build ing occupied by Hooker & Co. to cover all the vacant land, was referred to the same committee.

Mr. Robins re ferred to Hill street which the street eoni misiouers laid out six years ago and on which the abutters four years ago peti tioned for a sidewalk, agreeing to pay for curbing. Alderman McKenzie said the street commissioners were taking the streets each in their turn, but as the matter of awards on Hill street had not been all straightened out no work had been done there. Alderman Robins thought if the com missioners could lay a sidewalk ou Pros pect street when a settlement had been reached on one side only, they could do the same on Hill street. The committee on streets reported In favor of a sidewalk on Spauldlng street as soon as funds warrant. Tbe Central Vermont Railway Co. sub mitted an agreement that the city pay f 1 for the privilege of dumping dirt on their right of way along the side of Brooklyn street.

He said Sheridan street bad been graded, and there wasn't a house on it, Beacon street has been worked and there wasn't a house on it when his house was built. No action was taken on the mat ter. Mr. Spear of the Orange County Tele phone Co. appeared before the council and said the company had met at Chelsea Mon day and voted that it would accept the franchise granted by the city of Barre provided the city would extend the time for filing the bond 10 days and reduce the yearly rental from $1 to 50 cents. Alderman McKenzie moved that the franchise to the Orange County Telepbene Co. be extended 10 days if the company wishes it In which to file its b'yid. Mr. Spear did not believe there was any nse of granting an extension of time to the company it there was to be no reduc tion of the charges in yearly rentals. It was voted to grant an extension of 10 days from date. The council then went into a committee of the whole to consider the matter of the city treasurer's accepting assignments of wages from city employees. ONLY LASTED 20 MINUTES.
