OPERATIONS RESUMED

Cars Again Running on the
M & N. Street Railway

 

FIRST TRIP MADE YESTERDAY

 

The Track Relaid Across Tayco Street Draw Bridge --- The Old Drivers
Re-engaged


The Street railway company has resumed operations, and cars are again running between the two cities. The first trip was made yesterday forenoon from the company's stables to the C. & N.-W. depot.



The company now has eleven horses at its barn on Commercial Street , and will soon have its tracks in excellent condition. Messrs. Quinn and Johnson, the old drivers, have been re-engaged and have already entered on their duties. Frank Vanderhyden has been engaged as bookkeeper for the company, and a Mr. Stober of South Bend , Ind. , will have charge of the stables. It is to be hoped that the line will be well patronized. The amount of travel between the two cites is large, and if one half of the large number who wear out sole leather in their daily trips to and from the two places patronize the line, there is no doubt but a handsome sum will be netted annually by the company.
