AN ALL NIGHT TRIP.
Six Passengers Are Snow Bound on a Trolley Car.


One of the cars of the Brunswick Traction Company, one of the Milltown and South River line was stalled on Saturday Night between South River and Milltown. The car was making; its last trip to this city near midnight when the snow storm stopped its progress. It was stalled from midnight until 5 a. m. .where it was first, stopped, and all efforts to start it on the part of motorman and conductor were futile. There were six passengers in the car, three ladies and three gentlemen. Two of the gentlemen connected prominently with church choirs, expected to miss their Sunday morning services but they got in town in time to sing

Some of the cars on the other lines were also put out of service temporarily on account of the snow, but no serious inconvenience was caused to the patrons of the road.
