The old lady way encouraged with an offer of $1000 extra, and this' is the single instance, it is related by the railroad representatives, of anv unusual figure being paid, II is stated that by the first of March the big tunnel will be begun, and that it would not be surprising if the work was started before that time.

It is known that there are plans for the enterprise already In sight and the scheme Is said to be to dig from the east end where the lands have already been bought. The scheme calls for a large railroad bridge across the Seekonk river, near the Twin Islands, and for an extensive system of spur tracks on the river banka in East Providence. The railroad has until 1909 to complete the construction, according to the bill passed In the recent session of the legislature. Just where the west end of the tunnel will be located In the center of the city is as much a mystery as was that of the east end. There have been rumors that the city end of the tunnel would be near the ancient First Baptist meeting house, and close by the state arsenal.

spur The cost of the metropolitan parks system has been estimated, and board will ask the general assembly, at the session in January, for a bond Issue of $500,000 as a starter in the talked-of matter. It Is stated by Commissioner Henry A- Barker that that sum will be sufficient to secure quite a number of the properties which have been enumerated Tn the plans of the commission to make the scheme one of the greatest public features of the state for generations to come. It ie said by the commissioners that quite a few of the localities which it is desired to enconipa.xs in the chain of parks along the northern rivers of the state are in danger of destruction and that during the past year or two several of the most picturesque points have been denuded of trees, bowlders and other attractions of nature. The bond Issue will be vigorously plant with the main line by track. It is a general feeling that the city should give the concern what it desires in exemption In order to secure the industry.

Several other cities in New England have made a bid for the plant, but Woonsocket has been most favored, although the citizens here were not oh broad in offering inducements aa they were in other places. The past experience with manufacturing plants established by French and Belgian capitalists In Woonsocket is a strong argument for having the plant come here. The La Fayette, River Spinning, Guering Spinning, I.oridan Worsted, Montrose Worsted. Alsace Worsted, Fall Yarn and American paper tube mills were placed here through the agencies of capitalists of these countries. They were greatly Influenced to come hers through the influence of Hon Aram J.

Pothier, who is also promoting the location of the new concern here, and are all employing good help steadily. The company proposes to erect a $500,000 plant which will give employment to several hundred hands. New day is a legal holiday In Rhode Island and will be observed extensively In Woonsocket, especially by the French-speaking people. All 6f the bigger stores wdll be closed, business suspended In the banks and most of the mills and the day given up to enjoyment. There are no special attractions for the day, with the exception of the inauguration of the city government.

urged by the commission to the legisla lure tide winter. The commissioners sav banks are all eager for Rhode Isfend bonds and that they oan be issued at percent. In the district comprising the metropolitan park system there are 360,000 people and the ix- abie property is about $345,000,000. The of Providence it is stated will be no greater than the gross amount the city receives from one of the franchise corporations, and about one-third of that paid in by the street ear company as the special tax. The growth of the oity this year has been quite remarkable, and there are now said to be more structures in the course of erection than at any New period in the history of the city.

The big buildings now going along include tne $800,000 postoffice and the OOO state armory. There are more than 25 new dwellings half finished in the east side avenues of the city, and the year ends with more large industrial blocks erected than for many years past. I Almost all of the manufacturing plants in the textile line in and out of the city have increased their capacity and added to the storage quarters. This is true of the cotton as well as the worsted and woolen goods mills. The new structures are to be found on the independent as wrell as the so-called trust mills of the woolen Industry.

Next Friday evening at Infantry hall the annual charity ball under the auspices of tno Rhode Island exchange for work will take place. The affair every year interests not only the people connected with the charities of the city, but the socially prominent as well. The event this time will be on a much more elaborate scale than ever before. The preparations indicate that an effort will be made to make up for the loss of the Trocadero dances which have been of such moment to the social set about the state for many years past. decorations are to be unique and artistio, unlike some of the displays of somber trappings of the charity evGnts in the dancing line of years gone by.

There are numerous Boston visitors promised and the sale of tickets for their use haa been uncommonly good. The patronesses of the charity dance are Mrs Robert Ives Gammell, Mrs William Goddard, Mrs Elisha Dyer, Mrs Alfred M. Coates, Mrs William Grosvenor, Mrs Rosooe Stetson Washburn, Mrs Henry F.

New City Government Will be Inaugurated Monday. PAWTUCKET, Dec new city government will be inaugurated Monday forenoon in Hutchinson hall. The program will not differ materially from that of previous years. After Mayor Higgins his message, the two bodies will meet and organize for the year, name committees and decide on the dates for holding the regular meetings. The new president of the aldermen will be William Wood of ward 0, and the president of the lower branch will be the present Incumbent, Charles W.

Hughes. The present council clerk, Frank L. Hatched, will be reelected. There are several important matters to come before the oity council early in the year, but it will be some time before these are presented, as time will be required for the new committees to become familiar with their duties. Monday evening there will be held the annual meeting of the school committee, tout little will be other than to organize and name the officers and com mlttees.

For superlr tendent of schools an office to be filled at this meeting, it is said that Frank O. Draper, superintendent at Hyde Park, Mass, will be chosen as successor to Maurice Jrlen, the present superintendent, ext Wednesday the Elizabeth Hlg- bv those who profess to know that now it is probable that most of the present city officials who come up for reelection will be retained. Many of the members of the new city council, however, have refused to pledge themselves on any office or candidate, and this is said to be causing the officials some little uneasiness. The friends of City Treas Temple predict his reelectfon, and of City Messenger Sc udder are also said to be confident of the outcome. City Auditor Harrle A.

Cushman is opposed for reelection by KUwuird A. Searle, who formerly held the office, and there are one or two candidates for about everything else in sight. There are 23 canaidsites eligible lor appointment as put re I men, and most of them aspire to positions. It is said that seven new appointments are shitea, but as there are now five special officers on regular beats the appointment ot this number would not create any big slmkeup In the department. The mayor-elect has a number oi appointments to make outside of the police, the most desirable being a member of the board of health, sealer of weights and measures and a regtstrat of voters.

The latter position will not be filled until after inauguration day. The local license commission, at meeting this week, has again called the attention of the licensed liquor dealers to the law," so called, which has come prominently into public attention of late. local commissioners, in warning the dealers, call their attention more particularly to the clause ut their licenses which requires tne removal of anything wntch interferes with a view of the licensed premises, and or- cerH them to comply strictly with the law on this point. The druggists, too. giv6n the same notice, though heretofore they had not been troubled In this respect.

The action of the commissioners was not unexpected, in view of the prominence which has been given the matter in the past few weeks. Some years ago a previous commission decided to enforce the law, and made matters exceedingly uncomfortable for some of the liquor dealers. Their successors were more lenient, and gradually the licensed saloons went back to their former etatus. The police have been requested to report upon the observance of the by the licensed dealers, and as a result of their investigations it is quite probable that extensive changes will oe required in some of the saloons. MIDDLEBORO, Events of Past Year Not 8o Bad After All, Say Citizens.

MIDDLEBORO, Doc 30-Looklng back over the 12 months now almost past, citizens unite in the sentiment that they have been the best Middleboro has seen a score of years. The most prominent happening in the period has been the location of the Keith shoe here, which, in a few weeks, it is expected, will have added 700 additional hanclis to the employer of the town. The matter was all arranged during the past three months, and a modern, epacloua factory is now about ready for occupancy by the firm. From this great start, other matters are springing up, all of which will be of great benefit to the town. Ice fishing tn Lakeville will be a popular sport this year, as legislation passed at the session of 1905 removes the application of section 88 of chapter 91 of revised which allowed fishing with but a single line per person, either when ice fishing or otherwise.

The repeal of the law gives the 10-trap quota to each fisherman, and It is calculated the sport will be appreciated. The town accepted! the section of the revised laws a couple of years ago, and it was not long afterward that the sportsmen began to regret it. The will hold a watch- night service Sunday night, with the service starting at 11 and continuing till after the new year opens. The fire department has received share of work this week, with three alarms on three days, One proved to be a false alarm, and the others were for small fires which were extinguished without the aid of the department. tn each instance, however, the men were given a long pull with the machines.

Rev Charles J. Ketchum, rector of the church of Our Savior, will close his services with the church tomorrow. He haa had charge for the past five years, arid during that period has had a pleasant pastorate. He intends to make his home in Boston, and for a time will not assume charge of any church. The members of Mayflower lodge, A.

F. and A. of which he has been chaplain for the past four years, will attend a special service Sunday night at 8:80, which will be his closing service. It is to be held in commemoration of the feast of St John. Dr W.

He was attached to the 32d Mass volunteers for some time and he also had charge of a large hospital at Sharpsburg. WHITMAN. Building Boom of8izable Now Weil Under Way.

WHITMAN, Dec town haa been enjoying a building boom of more than ordinary proportions in the past few months, and the pleasant weather has extended it well into the winter. Even now new cellars are being prepared for the spring building, and unless all signs fail more houses will be constructed next year than In any previous year in the history of the town. The present builders do not seem to be investing for rental purposes, but for homes. The cottage is the prevailing tvpe, with here and there a two-tenement house, the lower part to be occupied by the owner and the upper part for rental. The carpenters and con- i-actors say that next spring many new buildings will be commenced and that the outlook is encouraging for the material prosperity of the town.

Exceptional importance is associated with the incoming year, which marks the 25th anniversary of the incorporation of Brockton as a city and the 250th anniversary of the founding of old Bridgewater, whence it sprung.

Ar- rangemnts are being made to comuiem- orate the two events, the Old Bridgewater historical Bociety assuming the leadership In this. Baalis Sanford, for 54 a leading and eminently respected retail merchant here, voices the sentiment of most business men when he says: "Mv faith In Brockton Is scond onlv to my faith In the Almighty.

The manufacturers have enjoyed a year of prosperity. The output of Brockton has Increased, yet the high standard of excellence has been maintained. Twenty-five years hence the gain will be great as It is Representative James Sidney Allen, one of oldest and most respected citizens, said recently: we have so much to be proud of and to be thankful for, and because the prospects for additional growth are so assuring, I believe Brockton and the should unite in making the 250th anniversary of the founding of the old town an event that will never be ChlltJ Pleads Guilty of Forgery.

The establishment of a protective auxiliary tn connection with the regular fire department, as proposed by the Brockton fire association, is one of the first important with which the city council will be asked to deal. It will come to them in the form of a proposition to maintain the protective auxiliary, providing the first cost is borne by the insurance companies.

A committee of five has been named to submit the matter to the new city council. The expert estimate of this first cost is $1800. to be expended for horses, wagon, and equipment. That of maintaining it would depend largely upon the scale upon which it is introduced. Supt Abbott of the Boston department, writing of the matter, believes no less than six permanent men would be required, with an equal number of call men.

The salaries and other current expenses would bring the figures up to $10,000 or more. la simply a question of whether the city can afford outlay at the present time.
