M onroe, Sept. 28.— T h e subject of th e erection of a new depot a t Mon­ roe was b ro u g h t directly, hom e to th e taxpayers of th e town, yesterday, w h e n a h e a ring in the m a tter was given in F ir e m e n ’s Hall, by the P u b ­ lic U tilities’ Commission of th e Sec­ ond D istrict, w h e n th e E rie officials w e re present and offered to proceed w ith th e building of a station and approaches on th e C a rpenter pro p e r­ ty, if th e tow n sfolk w e re agreeable, follow in g ' A b o u t th ree hundred of th e m o st ' p rom inent people in th e village and vicinity filled th e hall and every phase of th e question was gone into. The subject of the erection of a new station a t M onroe, w h ich is a f ­ flicted, like m a n y o ther villages in th e state, w ith several grade cross­ ings is one th a t has been before the public in one form or an o th e r fo r several years. A t th e instance of th e B o a rd of Trade of th e town, who claim e d th a t th e present station was u n s a n itary and inadequate, a h e a ring in th e m a tter was given in Albany recently, b u t no definite conclusion was reached. Y e s terday’s gathering was in reality a resum p tion of th a t hearing, b u t an unexpected surprise developed. A t a meeting of the vil­ lage trustees, th e previous evening, a resolution was passed designed to retain th e station on its present site. This \n-as to be effected by th e p u r ­ chase of the K n ight properties and th e form a tion of a p a r k therefrom a t a cost of $30,000. Law y er El-wjood C. Sm ith was present in th e interest of the trustees to cham p ion this resolu­ tion and m u c h of th e session w h ich lasted th ree hours resolved itself in­ to an effort on his p a r t to stave off the C a rpenter lot proposition until a vote could be taken on th e question of appro p riatin g m o n ey fo r a park (■adjoining w h ich would be the sta­ tion). J. B, Olmsted, who was ch a ir­ m a n of the m eeting and represented th e commission, told Mr. Sm ith clearly th a t the com m ission had no pow e r to in s tr u c t th e E rie w h e re to p u t its station building. T h e ir fu n c ­ tion rested in giving to the people of M o n roe a sanitary, adequate and ac­ cessible station. Mr. Sm ith w a s ad ­ vised to subm it his plans to th e E rie com p a n y to see if they approved of them ; and to do so a t once, o ther­ wise th e re would seem to be no chance of w o rk on a new station be­ ginning this year. xisting in the ■ At the Children Cry FOR FLETCHER’S T O R I A Held in the Court House at Goshen Last Friday.
