• The bridge for the Buffalo, Bellevue and Lancaster electric railroad across Cayuga Creek just below Como Lake in this village is in the process of construction. The bridge for the Depew branch, across the same creek at the Transit Road, is also being built.

• Work on the Gould Car Coupler Works is progressing finely under the direction of Mr. Schumacher, who has the contract for putting up the buildings. The stone work for the three largest buildings is already completed and part of the brick work has begun.

• A new counterfeit $1 United States silver certificate has made its appearance. It is of the new issue, 1891, portrait of Martha Washington, check letter D. It is said to be a poor specimen, but it is a wonder that the country is not flooded with counterfeits, as most people hardly look at a bill other than its denomination.

• The 400 feet of brickwork of the New York Central car shops at Depew, which was blown down in the gale about a month ago, is now again erected and the steel rafters are in place overhead, effectually preventing a repetition of the accident.

• Our young Americans who display the colors of their “dadies” in the different political clubs which march through our streets some evenings have the perfect right to do so, but they have not the right to interfere with marching of each other. We hope our boys will learn early that this is a land of free discussion.
