TROLLEY LINES ON HIGHWAYS. American Express Agent at Ashtabula Mew Company Will Not Use the Public O., Dropped Dead. Roads—A* They Will Compete With •' Stean Roads. William Gleason, agent of the American Express Co., at Ashtabula, 0., dropped dead at the Lake Shore depot at 10:20 Sunday morning. He had just assisted in loading some very heavy express, which it is believed brought on heart failure. He was about forty years of age and leaves a widow, and two children. He had been in the employ of the American ExpreM Co., seventeen years, coming here from Westfield, N. Y. Helps for Christmas Buyers. It has been reported that farmers living along the Main road from Fredonia *to North East were opposed to the construction of a trolley line which would be operated on private property instead of on the public highway. The contention is that it would be far easier to reach a car running along the public highway or on the main road in each village or town that the trolley line was operated than if the patrons were compelled to run through field and back yards. Don't stop for a few crumbs of comfort, but come here for a whole loaf of Satisfaction. We are now ready for the Greatest Christmas Trade on Record. Do four Christmas Shopping TO-DAY!

His family Jbave the sympathy of the entire community in their severe bereavement $ Called Off. The Philadelphia concern which has constructed the trolley line from Erie to North East has confined itself to securing the right of wAy along the main roads. The long distance , traction line, however, in which William J. Conners of Buffalo, D. F. Toomey ot this city and other Buffalo and Philadelphia persons are interested in will be built on private property. There is a deep set purpose in this movement of Buffalo and Philadelphia capitalists and they are sure that while it will be for their advantage it will also create better satisfaction for their patrons. The Holiday rush is on, and ihe crowds will grow larger and larger until the doors close Christmas Eve. People who enjoy picking out choice gift things before the hurry and confusion of the last few days should take advantage of to-day. Admirers of beautiful China and Glass, Toys, Books, Games, Dolls and Bric-a Brae will find in the west store collection a vast "number of interesting'things Sterling Novelties, Leather and Metal Goods, Art Needle Work and Art Decorative Linen, Furs, Handkerchiefs, staple and Fancy Dry Goods are in the main center store. Muslin Underwear, staple and fancy Millinery in East store. Oriental textiles, Upholstery stuffs and modern Tapestrys, Carpets, Suits, and Coats, second floor. All are culmulative in their interesting influences. The Musicale which was to have been here on Friday evening, by Madame Cole of England,has been caucelled as Madame Cole was unable to fill the date. Our people regret exceedingly that they are deprived of ttus treat, as she has sung before all the crowned heads of Europe, and has no equal in her line today. The first objection these traction capitalists have to running their line on a public highway is the fact that they are prohibited under the New York State law from operating their cars at a rate faster than six miles an hour. While this law is frequently ignored the Buffalo and Philadelhia persons realize that they are continually open to litigation. The Baptist Church Debt. The Church is feeling more and more encouraged to believe that the whole amount will be raised by the time of the Boll Call. The pledges are coming in every day, and it is hoped that a sufficient number will be received by Dec. 20 to warrant the announcement on that day of the successful tissue of the effort. The services will be of great interest throughout both the afternoon, and evening. China and Glass-ChriatmasTime AND ALL OTHER TIMES.

The persons interested in the line from Buffalo know that speed will have to be the main consideration because they will have to compete with the Lake Shore road and will have to make almost as good time as the railroad. The impediment of being limited in the possible speed that they would and could make will not be considered by these people who will construct a traation line that will exhibit several improvements over the old method of operating traction roads. Stole His Corn Calendars and Dainty Gift Books. Webster's Unabridged Dictionaries. Dictionary Holders. Children's Books,all that is new and best each. A. Reed, who works Rev. A. M. Tennant's place north of the railroad has met with quite a severe loss. He planted two acres of corn the past season, which yielded well, but when he qpme to husk it he discovered that some one had saved him that trouble, for every stqok had been opened and the inside husked, so that he only got thirty-five baskets off the two acres. It is a pity that the perpetrators of this crime could not be given their just deserts. .

In fact everything The Buffalo and Philadelphia people wish to keep themselves as free from the State Tax Commissioners and franchise tax as much as possible. They will be subject to a franchise tax where they cross public highways but this will be nothing in comparison with the operation of a traction line over a public highway where the owner of the line gets the fall benefit of the franchise law and its restrictions.

TOYS—ABUNDANT CHOICE. See to it that you get first selection, have them put aside for you. Beautiful Hand Painted China imported direct from the Haviland's'in France. Much cheaper than you can get the work itself done by an Amateur. The Buffalo and Philadelphia capitalists think that the public will get more satisfaction out of their line in their attempt to operate their line when it can oompete with the railroads than if they constructed a slow time road. Beautiful Fern Dishes, also some choice Pudding Dishes in Quadruple plate—Silver. In Fancy Gift Things From Buffalo to Hamburg and Blaisdel, where the road is already in running order, private land has been purchased although no attemp has been made to start work at that section.

Gold Pens are also desirable for mailing Gifts. Perfumes in Quality as well as name. The good kind is the kind we keep. Lorna, Gold Queen and Ping Pang are the latest popular odors. They are special with us. It is highly probable that the Erie and North East line will not extend any further east than the latter place. The two companies may connect at this point Then there will be a continuous line from Buffalo to Cleveland after a few connections have been made. "A Reunited Country." The third entertainment of the High School Lecture Course was held at Westfield Opera House on Friday evening, and was well attended. Before and after the lecture some first-class music was furnished by the School Orchestra, which added materially to the pleasure of the evening.

The people interested in this new fast traction line were surprised that an objection should be made to their securing private right of way. It will cost them more to construct the road on this principle but they realize that it will be for the best interest of the road as well as the people who patronize it. The line will be constructed on this private land which will be purchased as near to the main roads as possible and there is no foundation for anyone to imagine that they will have to ruD through fields for a couple of acres to catch a Morning Post. When Prof. Pattison arose to introduce the speaker he asked to have a vote of the audience in regard to changing the place of holding the remaining entertainments from Academy Hall to the Opera House, and was almost unanimous in favor of the latter place.

Each line is classified and you will have not trouble in making selection. The assortment comprises 500 dozen, all kinds and grades, lc to $1.00 each. Prof. Pattison's introduction of John/ Temple Graves of Georgia, was a gem and showed that not all the oratorical abtlity was possessed by the speaker of the evening. Mr. Graves' subject was a "Reunited Country," and was handled in a masterly manner, showing him to be a deep student of history. He gave a very clear and comprehensive review of the causes that disrupted this country, and how the South was brought back into the Father's house, where she had come to stay. He also paid a glowing tribute to his people, showing the hardships that they had undergone iu recuperating from the terrible effects of the war, and of their loyalty to the Stars and Sripes as shown in the Spanish war, where they fought shoulder to shoulder with their brethren of the North, and said it was wgrth all it had cost, as it had shown to the world that we were a "Reunited Country." He paid a grand tribute to Lincoln, Grant, Beecher, O'Grady and McKinley, who bad done so much,to bring about this era of harmony and good will. H I PITTQ 21, 22 AND 23 MAIN ST., 11.
