Tho first Installment of supplies for tho
electric railway arrived yosterday and con
sisted of poles and sills, and two car loads
of other material.
Tho polos and sills aro being suppliod by
Abner Bitting, of tho Catawitsa Volley.
Several loads woro hauled to town yostor
day and scattered along the proposed route
between this town and Mabanoy City.
Two car loads of other supplies also

about tho road being constructed. Tho
people on tho anxious bench aro required

Tho Mahanoy Tribune has discovored
that electric railways holp to build up tho
towns and districts they pas3 through. It
is very true. Almost any school boy could
have told tho astute editors of tho Tribune
that. Tho childish opposition tho paper
made against the road found little favor in
its own community. Now that tho Tribune
has discovered tho truth it Is hoped that it
will step from tho ranks of tea-pots like the
S'news and other papors.
Tho Hehald has just learned that cor
tain men who had determined to sell their

Ia It Right ?

that our borough authorities should allow
the playing of numerous bands, tho parad

panies carrying sido arms and dressed in

foreign lands, on tho American Sabbath,
thereby annoying tho rollgious services
held by other denominations, and at the
samo time have a law that authorizes tho
Burgees to prevent the playing of traveling
musicians on our sidewalks through tho
