      From the Bob Bedford clipping file:

      July 12, 1893 - The horse car that has done service on Main and
      William Streets was cut off from the main line while on a trip up
      William Street by a force of Pike's men who suddenly appeared and
      began to tear up the asphalt at the corner of Main and Perry
      Streets. The progress of the work forced the car to retreat step by
      step until it reached Market Street where it was dragged over the
      asphalt and placed on the Cayadutta road and conveyed to the car
      stables. With this event, ended its usefulness and horse cars became
      a vehicle of the past in Johnstown's history.
