Company Will Make Test Case of Employe’s Arrest.

The arrest of Joseph Bello, an employe of the Hackensack Water Company, in West Hoboken, N. J., recently, for opening a street without permit is expected to be an important test case and present indications point to it being bitterly fought by the water company.

Walter Walsh, a foreman of the local street department, found Bello opening a stret, and placed him under arrest for not having a permit to do so. Walsh made a complaint against the man for violating the town ordinance.

Superintendent French, of the water company, was indignant when informed of the man’s arrest, and stated that the company did not have to secure a permit for each street opening, for their franchise and a bond made them liable for the proper reimprovement of that part of the thoroughfare opened. He stated that the company would fight the case.
