TO KEEP TRAFFIC OPEN.
The Traction Company W ill Seo That it Is
The meeting between Mayor O'Neill.
President Hendrlck. of the Traction
company, and W. L. fleers, of Clark &
Co., the mmi-at'lois for the erection of
the new bridges, did nut end in any
detinlte mensure being udopted for the
keeping open of trattlce on Klghth ave
nue. The teurlng out of the bridge ut
this pluce will especially Inconvenience
the, Traction eompauy, as It Is the only
pluce where their Hue curses the liver.
A proposition tlmt u foot bridge be
ciect'd at the Hy's rik was not ac
'cepted. President Hendrlck. however,
says thut they will keep irullic open
at the pluce.
The city will probably be asked to
have a temporary bridge built across
the river ut Sixth avenue. This is the
nearest and most convenient way to
the city station nml Trinity church,
and ns the work will take ut least a
month, some way should be furnished
p.dest: lans for croxshig.
CI.fH MAY MOVE.
Providing tho .Mayor With on Offieo May
rn use l.nckmvunnu Club's Kcmovol.
It looks as is the Lackawanna club
will be forced to vacate their pretty
rooms In tho Municipal building. Mayor
O'Neill wants nn olflce In the building,
and as he prefers the rooms now occu
pied by the club, they will have to go.
At the meeting of the councils Mr.
lilennon of the Fourth ward, introduced
a resolution, providing that the city
furnish suitable quarters in the city
. building for the otflces. There is no
doubt but what the resolution Is per
fectly just, and Mayor O'Neill should
have an otllce us many people who wish
lo see him are unable to do so during
the present slate of ufl'ulrs There are,
however, plenty of available rooms,
ether than that which the club uccupies.
and they will probably muke a fight
against their removal. The lease which
the club made for one year has run out.
and as they fulled to renew It. they
may meet with dlttlculty on this ac
count. TWO ACCIDENTS.
