The Niagara st-nui flro enoine was
given another tost ut the water's edg'
on the West Side yesterday morning.
The test was made under the super
vision ot Wilbur shipp, a practical
machinist and engineer employed In
tue liehign Valley roundhouse at vox
ton. The test was a most thorough
one and showed beyond a doubt that
the engine it onee more in first clam
condition, as may be seen from the fol
lowing copy taken from the report or
Mr. Shipp after the test had been com
pleted. It is as follows: "M. N.
Donnelly, ohairmau fire committee
Iu accordance with instructions re
eeived from Charles McCanna, of the
Niagara Eugino company, and (ieore
J. Llwellyn, chief engiue;r of the tire
department, I made the test this morn-
lag of the Niagara tiro engine with the
following results: The engine was
started at 10 215 a. in. Ten minutes
later a section of hose burst uuder a
steam pressure of seventy-live pounds
and 100 pounds water pressure. Au-
other section of hose burst five minutes
later uuder a steam press urn of ninety
pounds and 135 water pressure. After
a run of one half hour the engine
stopped. Upon investigation I found no
oil lu tue cylinders. U.i tilling tlie
oil cups ami puttiug oil in the
cylinder, wlioti occupied about
two minutes' tim. the engine
was again started und this time run
until all the fuel wag exhausted, about
tifeeeo minutes. If the engine is run
properly it is, in my opinion, iu hrst
clan serviceable condition, as the water
pressure more thau doublod tlie stoain
pressure, as it showed at sixty pounds
steam pressure 100 pounds water pres
sure, and at ninety pounds stoma pres
sure showed 185 pounds water pressure.
(Signed) Wilbur Siiipp." The fact of
the eugino stopping and the discovery
of Examiner Sbinp that there was no
oil iu the journals was due to tlie fail
ure of hngiueer AloAndrew. who wtu
in charge of the operating of the eugine,
to prop.-rly oil the parts. The repurt

I he directors of the Water street
bridge held a meeting in the Miner'
bank yesterday afternoon for tne pur
pose of discussing the advisability of
ereoting a new steel bridge in place or
the present structure, which is fast
going to decay. After considerable
talk it wag resolved that the repair
committee, J. 13, Shifter, George
Smith, John Howell nut Janus
Hosier, invite plans and bids tor the
building of a new steel bridge similar
to the one recently erected at Wilkes
Barre. A prominent Lehigh Valley official,
while in town yesterday, when asked
if the company would refuse fare be
tween Wilkes-Birra aud Pittston, to
compete with the Traction company,
said the company shall not make any
effort to compete with the electric line.
It is said that the Traction company
will shortly begin to lay a Y track from
Main to William street for cars from
Wilk8-Barre and the Jauction to lay
over on the last nuund street.

Ihe oorougu engineer and Mr, Uiiirid,
superintendent of construction for the

grade has not been changed. The
injunction was served yesterday aftor
noon, but as the grade wag not changed
nothing was done in the matter.

faster. They continued their flight on
the long bridge over the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western trucks,
and the engineer of the pas
senger train slowed tip and watchod
the result, 1 he animals got over about
forty feet of tbe bri.lne, when their
legs dropped between the ties and they
were pinned fast. The passenger train
was brought to a standstill at the ap
prnaoli to the bridge. A temporary
scuffold was built, ropes secured and
fastened about the animals, and they
were drawn out of their plight with
little difficulty. They escaped with a
few slight injuries. The passenger

ished th Telephone Girl.
Scrantonians will watch with interest
the advances made by a new telephone
company, the Automatic, which, has
set out to compete for local business
against the older corporations. The
Automatic company has a nominal cap
ital of $1,000,000, and among its stock
holders Hre such men as W. 11. bckert,
ex president of tbe Metropolitan Tele
phone company of New York; S. B.
Uikine, Hamilton Uisston nnd Mr. lierg
ner, tbe big Philadelphia brews,.
Tbe phono of the new company, it
is claimed, bave mauy advantages ovr
those tiow in use, oneot which is that
they coat to patrons about one-half the
price of the preseut phones, in add)
tion, there is the advantage of absolute
secrecy In talking. There is no central
station. Eton bolder of a telephone
has his own key board, and by a simple
device no more difficult to operate than
the ringing of a bell lie can cull up the
person he wants to talk to.
The Antoinette Telephone company

franchises lu a number of interior
Pennsylvania cities, but thus far has
not sent representatives to inquire into
tbe advisability of attempting to estub
