A brief history of York Street.
|"Newport, Ky., July 4 . - An effort was made in Newport by
the street railway company to get ahead of the youngsters who place
torpedoes on the tracks in celebration of the Fourth. Pieces
of carpet were suspended directly in front of the wheels, and the
explosives were thus swept from the rails.
For a while the patriotic youngsters were in sackcloth and ashes, but a bright little chap, whose operations were carried on at the corner of York and Fourth streets, devised a plan to checkmate the company. He placed his torpedoes along the track and then placed a wire in the earth beside the rail. This caused the carpet to make a swing, and before it could settle in place, the wheels passed over the explosives.
His scheme was adopted by boys all over town, who enjoyed getting
ahead of the street car company more than they did the noise they
made. from the Warsaw Independent, July 9, 1904.
