The stories of t'liaiiRcs In the ulllee of
the superintendent of the Delaware anil
Hudson company have been tevlved,
and thin time Superintendent Mnnvltlc,
aecordliiR- to the sosslp of the town In
railroad circles, too, Is to bo elevated
to the pnttltlou of sehcrul miiniiRer of
the road, to succeed Flrsl Vice-President
Horace (!, Youiir, who. in turn,
will become president, the successor of
11. M. Olyphanl, who Is now at the head
of the l'oad.
There has been no olllclal eonllrina
tlou or this story, an there Is the same
reticence in tills Instance ns before,
when there were reported chanR-cs In
the olllce of Superintendent Manville.
The story, however, has been about,
town for several days mid has been
variously discussed. The belief Is that
It Is true, and so fur as tin Rcneral
opinion rocs It is a certainty that Mr.
.Manvlllo h: to be honored with a pro
motion. In this case the wisli Is tho
rather or the thotiRbt, for it would be
a source of satisfaction and dcllclu to
I'nrbonilullans to have one of their
townsmen Riven such recognition.
The dlscre.'l .!lenco of the company's
olllclal' does not justify any more than
speculation, but It calls attention nunc
closely to some of tin recent doiiiRS of
the Delaware and Hudson company,
the most Imuoi'lmit of which Is the
buildlii.e; of IiIr; eon' storage pockets at
Honpsdiile. Work on which will prac
tically revolutionize the handling of
coal hound for tidewater over this road
Is now in proRress, nnd when the pro
ject is completed, Iloncsdale will prob
ably have the IiIrrcsI coal slori'tRe
point in the world.
There were many considerations to
impell the company to tin construction
of theM' storage pockets, but chief
amoiiR them was the economy of cars
and h.iuliiR.'. ItrlWIy. all the throtiRh
trains, that ii. the coal destined for
Xew York i 'ty, i an be made up at
Ilonesdale. There would be no neces
sity for haulliiR- ears bail; from tide
water to the mines. They could stop
at Honesilale and be loaded from the
pockets. No time would he lost in roIiir
over tin mountain, and there would lie
less diiiiRer of a scarcity of cars, in the
case of an increased demand of coal, as
the pockets would always be kept illled.
These are a few of the advantiiu'cs of
the proposed order of thinps

fact that the lire alarm system is being

THE ELITE DANCE.
A BiilHnnt Social Affair Is the Sea
son's Second Subscription Dance.
The second subscription daneo of the
season was conducted in Hurke's hall
last evening, and was a brilliant, suc
cess. Tin pleasures and success of the
evening were under the patronage of
the Kllte dancing class, whose mem
bership Includes young people who are
conspicuous in their society set. The
ballroom was a brilliant picture of light
and color, as the music went on and
the dancers mingled on the Hour to the
entrancing strains of the waltz and the
other llgures of the programme.
The Mosmi'I orchestra provided tho
latest music that, has been voted Ihe
most popular by the devotees of the

varied pleasures of the evening'.
The affair was a brilliant social suc
