Whio there seems to bo a strong senti

This viow is held by many who say that
to mako tho proposed now works a privato

It dovolopou in the courso of tho con
ference that tho Oirlislo gontlomen who
aro putting up tho capital for the road are
interested in sovcral oloctric railways
throughout the state. Porsons familiar
with their commercial standing speak of
them as mon of largo means, abundantly
able to carry to a successful issue tho enter
prise. Mr. Ebcrlo, electric cnginoer, is tho
gentleman who constructed tho Pottsvillo
oloctric railway, and who paid a visit to
town whon tho projoct of building a road
was under consideration by town parties,
llo is an electrical export, whoo knowl
odgo of things in connection with work of
this character is comprohensivo. Mr,
Finnoy, who was with him, and whoso
presonco is accounted for by tho rumor that
bo is to bo secretary of the company,

Tho company proposes to run a line
straight from hero to Ashland. A branch
of tho road will start off at St. Nicholas,
going over tho hill to Shenandoah. Every
second car coming up tho valloy will movo
directly up to Mahanoy City. Tho num
bor of cars, frcquoncy of trips, &c, will bo

it opens up to moro convenient communi

About tho only hitch botwoon tho oloc
tric railway peoplo and tho committeo in
conference was on tho question of rail.
Tho company deslro3 to lay "T" rail in tho
borough and tho commitloo was inclined to
insist upon flat rail. Mr. Eberle explained
that if compelled to use flat rail in the
borough, it would bo nocossary on reach
ing tho limits of tho borough to stop tho
cars, take off tbo wheels and put on wheels
suitable for tbo "V rail which would bo
used on tho township road, as thosamo
wheols will not do for both rails. Tho
advantago of tho "T" rail was that it
pormitted faster running of tho cars, is
safer and in ovory respect moro dosirab'.o.
It was decided that tho committeo should
visit Allontown and Bethlehem to-day at
