AH passengers on the "short line" as It Is officially styled, were forced to change cars, at the corner of Main street and Amboy avenue, and pay an extra transfer fee, upon boarding the main line cars. These two feature, have been thorns in the sides of th. Metuchen people for the full score of years of activity . and several attempt. have been made to invoke legal action against .the trolley company but up the present none of these hav. produced result. ' At last President Carman of the Metuchen Chamber of Commerce who Is connected with th. engineer corps of the national government, dug up a copy of the original franchise and discovered as- he thought, a way to bring about a settlement.- He accordingly wrote to the borough coun cil setting forth the facta acertained and asking for prompt action to have the transfer fee eut out, and to bring about through traffic. The active young borough attorney at once got busy and filed a complaint against the company with the State Public Utility Commission to the effect that this board has consented to set a day when a public hearing will be granted to all parties concerned. Two or three year, ago the era of the motor bus a. a passenger con vevor began to spread all over the land and Included Metuchen. This new style of conveyance with its lower fare, shortening of running time and more frequent trips, has cut the business of the short line almost to a vanishing point and the trolley company in its desperation, ha. stated that It would apply to the State Board for permission to abrogate the nresent contract with the Dorougn and to be allowed to tear up its present tracks In the short line route and substitute some form of a "Trackless Trolley" which is a sort of combination of an auto bu. and a trollev car. No tracks are used but the car. take their power from a overhead wire the same as do the present trolley cars. As under Its contract with the borough the ralway company 1. called upon to pay for the pavement of the street roadways between the tracks and for two feet on each side, it Is evident that it is the hope ot the trolley company to get rid ef this expense, but the Dorougn peopm surelv to be expected to object to this jug handled arrangement If a possibility of a settlement In favor of the .,.krftnHMi of the new style of loco motion may be expected if the railway company will agree to pay tor ,r.vincr of the street after the tracks are removed. .Just how the problem will be solved will only be roan. una rent when the official bearing come, about. . it booed that a speedy settle ment will come about as arrange- now under way to re pave the whole route of the short line with permanent concrete pavement, n r.nihlv the building of a aewer through the center of Main street. when the depot jwas Bartially destroyed by fire, the railroad company Instead of rebuilding tore the rem. naut. down and abandoned the business. The name "Robinvale" however, remained and gradually a' few pro- ETessivc spirits secured iols and build homes, ntll at present there are about a score, of houses In the , secticn bounded -by the railroad. Grove avenue, Woodbridge and Jonesdale avenue, the latter being practically little more than an- alleyway, twenty-five feet wide, yet serving as a connection ' to the main thoroughfare to the business part of the town, then and now known as Woodbridge avenue. ' Aside from the collection of taxes. which of course was an Inevitable an nual proceeding the municipal authorities seem to have forgotten the existence of the people of Robinvale. personal and written pleas alike laid up te the Monday last failed to move, the heart, of the town fathers to any compassion. Patience having ceased to: be a virtue, the property owners becoming imbued with tno sport of the fathers .f old who adopted the slogan, "In unity there la strength," got together, produced a petition which was signed by over a score of property owners, and under guard of a considerable delegation brought the paper in person to tho Borough Council, where ' it waa presented with the proper dignity and was backed by the more or less eloquent and vigorous plea. or the delegates. One man was especially emphatic In. declaring that never more would be vote for a Republican ticket if the work did not begin, and a lady home-owner gave due and proper notice that war would be declared if the work was not begun speedily and then some.
