TORI DOWN FENCES THAT DES
ECRATED OLD PATHS.
But tho few old timers who remain saw
with angsr when they awoke on Tues
day a row of fsnoss. cutting the old
ana at intervals and Inotoeing all that
was isft of it within building lots which
had bordered It.
, There was an indignation meeting
that night, and on Wednesday morning
very one of the new fences had die-appeared.
Last night a score of old
t latere met at No. Ms Bast Seventh
street and agreed that, so long ss tbey
had the strength to tear them down no
irencai should cut off what remained of
Lott'e bid eowpath.
Tbey formed the Lott'a Lane Protec
tive Association and agreed that their
resistance, exoept for tearing down
fences, should bs passive. Tbey hope
that the property owners who sought to
lahe the lane will get Injunctions for
bidding them to tear down the fences
so tbsy can right the matter out In court
