    • Obituary:
      "Frank Staley, one of the best known motormen employed by the United
      Traction Company, died at his home, No. 215 Second Street, early this
      yesterday morning, after an illness of but two days. Mr. Staley was
      on the West Albany line, and had his car out as usaul Thrusday. After
      his regular trip he was requested to make an extra trip and although
      not feeling well at the time he obeyed with characteristic devotion
      to duty, and started on the extra job. When the car reached Steuben
      Street and Broadway he was taken seriously ill and had to call an
      inspector to finish the trip. He then went to his home. Mr. Staley
      was born in Fulton County in 1867, and had been employed by the Albany
      Railway and United Traction Company since 1896. He was of quiet
      disposition and one of the most conscientious men on the road. The
      news of his death came before it was generally known that he was ill,
      and his taking away occasions a sorrow which is kneenly felt and best
      known by his fellow workman and associates. The railway men draped
      the Quail Street office building in mourning; the first time that such
      recognition was given a departed brother. The funeral will take place
      tomorrrow, and in view of the fact that it is circus day and all if
      the regular and extra men have to be on their cars, it will be
      impossible for any of the men to attend it, but this evening the
      employees will form at the Quail street office at 6:30 and proceed to
      Mr.Staley's home to pay their last respects. Mr.Staley leaves a wife
      and two children."
