EVERYTHING ELECTRICAL FOR THE CAR AUTO ELECTRIC CO. S Cedar St. Phone 1313 NyecL PIERMONT, Nov. 13. The Standard Trap Rock Company here is prsporing to start work next Spring by continuing the work of Installing machinery. It was said that even if the de cislon of the United States Su ­ preme Court On whether the com ­ pany can hold the property or sctl it to the Palisades Interstate Park Commission is handed down within a few days, the Ti^ Rock com ­ pany will not start blasting the mountain until Spring, it was said today. Confident that the decision of the court will be in the company's favor, the firm is not only installing new machinery, but has a large force of men at work cleaning away debris and preparing, before Winter sets in, the quarry in or ­ der that there win be no delay in getting into the full swing of oper ­ ations next Spring. Although the rock company has owned the mountain for about two years, there has not been a single blast set of to date, tho operations being confined*to preparing for the time when they^swing into opera ­ tion. The action of the Palisades In- chose thw meunti^ fy hs figure irtich the rock^compimy felvdid not nearly cover expenses, held up the work for a long period and the site was deserted for a long time. When the court decided that the price the commission offered was too low, the company began the work it is doing at present, pre ­ paring to quarry, but is being held up until the United States Supreme Court hands down a decision on tho appqat mado by the commis ­ sion.
