REMOVING THE TRESTLE.
Tho High Works Over Dundaff Street
Is Disappearing Progress of Dela

Slowly the remnants of the old grav

inetit Unit Is going now, leaving only
its history behind. Is the trestle that
crosses Uundufi' street, nt Hie foot of
Salem avenue. "Workmen havo com
menced to remove It anil In a short
time there will he left stnndlwr only
the portion that Is being used for the
aei'ommodntlon of the coal curs which
fill tlie retail coal pockets located off
Salem avenue. It is expected, however,
that this part of the trestle will also
disappear as soon as the new pockets
how under way will have been ready
for use. The same historical Interest
attaches to this part of the old gravity
ris to the rest of the equipment that
hlis been removed or destroyed, and for
this reason Its removal Is worthy of
' Work on the branch that will supply
coal to I he new coal tanks Is milking
good progress. This branch Is along the
old canal bed, beginning at the old
Humes and extending to the old union
station. A big: force of men was at
work last week cutting down the bank
and making- a roadbed. Kails, too, have
"been laid for some distance. By spring,
it Is expected, the new coal tanks will
be ready to supply the retail coal trade.
Then Interest will turn to the old coal
pockets, the ones In use now, and
speculation will he rife, as before, as
to what disposition will be made of the
ground which the coal yard occupies.
The talk about the prospective change
or removal of the Delaware and Hud

avenue will also likely be revived, un

The removal of the Dundaff street
trestle is making a good deal of extra

have found It necessary not only to re
move the wires, and raise additional
poles to accommodate them, but also
to reconstruct their lines. This recon

VICTIM OF FAST RUNNING.
Almost a Tragedy of the Trolley on
Little Call English, 'the 6-year-old
grandson of Nathan English, of I3el
mont street, Is the first victim of the
fast running of trolley cars through
the streets of Carbo'nilalc. AVhlte i-oast-tng
down Drtimmond avenue, which
runs at right angle to Uelmont street,
ho was struck by a car, and his cloth
ing catching onto a part of the car, he
was dragged along for about 100 feet
before the rnotortnon realized what
wan happening, and brought the con
veyance to u standstill.
The boy, It was expected,, would bo
fcurfully Injured, hut he had a marvel
ously close escape, and emerged w'lth
a number of painful contusions on the
head and face.
As stated, the accident .was due
largely to the high spend at which the
car ran along Belmont street. While
It cannot be denied that a big respon
sibility Is assumed by little ones and
their parents when the former take to
coasting on busy streets, yet It Is
equally true that since the strike the
street cars have been run at a reck
less speed. Tt is asserted that the ear
which struck young English was run
ning at twenty miles an hour. How
ever true this may be. It can be truth
fully said that this speed has been ex
ceeded on Main street. Experienced
railroad men, whose opinions are
worth something, have declared that
cars have been run through Main
street at thirty miles all hour. Jt needs
no argument to show that there is
danger In this recklessness, a (lunger
that the safety of the community de
mands should be abolished. The Trib
une has pointed out, since the strike,
that the empty cars shoot through the
streets at a speed which carries dan
ger, and It again brings .this matter
before the notice- of the railway ofll
clals, whose duty It Is to .consult the
public safety. There is an ordinance
regulating the speed of cars which will
be enforced to Its letter, certain coun
cllmen assert, If the express cars are
not halted by the trolley company.
THESE HORSES NEGLECTED.
Almost a Job for Society for Preven
tion of Cruelty to Animals.
The following communication has
been received by The Tribune:
"In perusing the columns of your
paper I fall to llnd any mention what
ever of what seems to me to be the
greatest of cruelty. In the Interest of
the Society for the Prevention of Cru
elty to Animals, 1 beg of you to write
an article In Its behalf. You may be
able to reach the hearts of the people
through the columns of your paper.
There is altogether too much of this
ill treatment of animals going on.
"We have not as yet been able to
punish the offender but, with your as
sistance, the people may become so In
censed as to rise against him en masse.
This affair Is beyond human endurance
and no punishment will be too severe
for the perpetrator of this deed.
"Think of It! Since Thursday after
noon, twenty-live line horses have been
allowed to -stand on the banks of the
Lackawanna, between Sixth and Salem
avenues, without shelter and without
blankets, to say nothing of the failure
to feed them, it Is shameful In a civ

matter, I am "Yours,

To those Interested In the ease. It
might be mentioned that the horses
referred to are still on the river bank,
but It is expected that the contractor
who owns them will put them In ser

EVILS OF THE DANCE.

in St. Rose Church Sunday.
The evils that follow In the wake of

by Very Rev. T. F. Coffey, at the S

to face with unhapplness of young peo
ple that had Its source In the dance
hall. Father Coffey urged the young
people to bo prudent and discreet In
their pleasures, particularly so In their
patronizing the dance with its many

LEN GREY, slouchngly seated on

small boy ran "Dnd, dad,'' ho softly
culled. "Sheriff run!"
Len leaped high to escape a tangle
of catbrlar, while tho pursuer tore nnd
swore through the detaining vine. But
Len limped ns he ran, and the oftlcVu.
gained upon him. Len stooped low nnd
dodged to one side. Tho sheriff nltched
on and disappeared, falling into a crev
asse which served as the chimney to a.
The sheriff landed upon the Illicit
still for which he had been searching,
and bounced off against a moonshiner,
who held him, while the other men In
the cave drugged a bunch of willow
withes from a tub of water. AVlth
these they wrapped the sheriff us If he
hud been a form upon which to shape,
a basket. They twisted the bands
ubout him, rolling him over and over
as they worked until he looked like a
wicker encased mummy. This llnlshed,
a gag put an end to his swearing.
As they left him lying helpless on the
lloor he could hear them dragging the
still on and on, deeper Into the cave,
the echo rendering It Impossible ofr
him to judge as to the distance.
Drip, drip, drip. Oh, he was so
thirsty. He tried to move, but that
only ightened his bands. If only he
could sry out, or, If he could get word
to Mary AVinn! She used to go to the
still every day. He remembered hay
ing heard that she was purveyor to the
moonshiners. She would help him. She
certainly loved him and when he wns
on the mountain lust summer, and he
did not believe that she had ever found
out that lie was a spy. At all events
he hud heard that si woman would for
give a man anything If she loved him.
Ah, perhaps she was coming now!
Someone was surely coming, but It was

It grunted about, then passed on Into

shambling figure, with a big conical
shaped head, dull eyes and hanging
under lip. This object looked vacantly
at him; then slowly turning away it
thrust Its limp, useless hands into the
fissures in the rocks until it dragged
out n kerosene can. The thirsty sheriff
could hear tho gurgle, gurgle of the
moonshine whiskey as it flowed from
the can Into the idiot's throat. Then
