      From the Bob Bedford clipping file, two days:

      August 13, 1902 - Conductor Delbert Robertson of the electric
      division has arranged to give a trolley ride on Wednesday evening,
      August 20th. The party will leave the corner of Main and Williams
      Streets at 7:30 o'clock, making a circuit of the entire electric
      division. Mr. Robertson is a popular official and his friends should
      remember him on this occasion.

      August 14, 1902 - MAKING GOOD PROGRESS - The tracklayers on the new
      line to Amsterdam have caught up with the grading force and about
      4000 feet of track are now laid. Work on the trestle at Tribes Hill
      is being rushed and it will only be a matter of a few weeks before it
      will be ready for track. The line will doubtless meet with much
      favor during the summer and a trip over the road in one of the big
      open cars will be a pleasure. The rails are of the same weight as
      used on the FJ&G steam division.

      A break in the trolley wire on the main line of the electric division
      caused trouble on that line last night for several hours. The first
      through trip was made by the car which arrived in Gloversville at
      9:42. After that hour, passengers were transferred at the point of
      the break, the McIntosh Cut between Fonda and Johnstown.
