material. Hardly had the ink been dry
upon tho minutes of tho company's

purchase the necessary machinery, than
tho local lnaKors of road materials requested
a conference with tho transit
people, nnd asked permission to submit
now figures. Tho now figures, which
wore very much lower thnn those first
presented, wore satisfactory to tho company,
and tho plan to establish a rock
crushing plant was abandoned.
This was ono of tho "burdonsomo"
things of which President L. Tenney
Peck of tho rnpid transit complained
in commenting upon tho decision of tho
supremo court in regard to tho paving
squnbblo between tho mpid transit company
and tho city authorities.
"I have rend tho findings," said
Mr. reck yestordny, "nnd to a layman's

"Not long sinco tho prico of crushed
