CENTRAL PASSF2WER RAILWAY
Meeting of the Stockholders Last Wight
—Election of a Board of Directors.
Since the present managers of the,
Central (into Minersville) Passenger
Railway assumed control, thatzoute has
been prosperous and successful. On
taking possession, some eight or nine
months ago, the newly organized sesoci.
atlon rapidly discovered that to obtain
prosperity a largo stock of fresh energy
and enterprise should at once be
put into the concern, and that the
expenditure of a needful amount
of money in making improvements
absolutely necessary was the • only
truly economical measure which could
be adopted. Acting on these suggestions,
the road was put in the beat possible
order, new cars were pro;rided, better
horses supplied, and a mammoth stable,
at the Minersville terminus, was erected.
These Improvements cost money, but the
public appreciated the new life infused
IMO the .torporatlon and liberally ex
tended a helping hand by adding largely
to the patronage extended. Indeed, after
a brief term of the new management,
and the guarantee that the road was to
be a permanent institution, the real
estate in the vicinity of the outer termi
nus naturally advanced, thus benefitting
• large number of penions. An impetus
to settlement wee likewise given and
the broad • table -lands penetrated
• by the road are being dotted with the
houses of the rich and the poor, who have
full appreciation of the advantageous
altos afforded for homes in that direction.
The late stemma of the corporation Is a
matter of congratulation, not only to
those pecuniarily interested, but to all
who desire to see our city expand and
build up into still greater importance.
Especially is its present proeperous con
dition a matter of congratulation to the
Board of. Directors and Superintendent
having charge of its affairs. They have
labored hard and diligently to bring
about the resin% and, continued in office,
they can confidently hope for still bright.
