STONE BRIDGE ALL RIGHT
Mr. Gilmoro Brown ExplaliiB Palso,
Garoy & do.'s Inability
TO COMPLETE THE CONTRACT.
The Stono Ililrigu Commission ISiii
ploys Mr. 1j. U. llnllock us Superin
tendent? Ho Will Complete the
lirldge in Four Woolen, mid tlioCost
Will bo Deducted rt'um Money Duo
Tho 8tono bridgo will be finished.
According to tho authority vested in it
by Council, tho stono bridge commis
sion yesterday evening decided to com
plete the bridge. Tho cost of finishing
it will amount to $5,000; this stun will
bo deducted from the ainouut due
Pnigo, Carey & Company, bo that tho
failure of tho tirm to complete tho job
will cost tho city nothing. Mr. I.. li.
Hallock, who has superintended tho
work for Paige, Carey & Co., will super
intend tho work for tho city, and says
ho will luivo tho bridge ready for travel
in tour weeks.
Tho stono bridgo commission mot yes
terday evening in tho city engineer's
ollice. Tho members present were
Messrs. Ellinghnin, Eniahoimor, Zar
nitz, Kennoy and iichrebe. City Kn
gineor llogo and Messrs. L. G. Hallock,
l'eter Haley and Gilmore Ilroivn, of the
firm oi 1'aige, Carey & Co., wora present.
City Solicitor Kiley was somewhat late,
but caino to timo about a quarter after 8
Chairman Ellinghatn stated, that tho
meeting had been called owing to tho
trouble tho firm of Paige, Carey k Co.
was in, and suggested that the repre
sentatives of the firm be heard.
Mr. Gilmoro Brown explained that
Paige, Carey & Co. had undertaken tho
work and carried it on up to a week
ago. A week ago the troubles arose,
and, while he had received 110, intima
tion that an assignment had been mude,
he did not see, owing to the linn's con
dition in this city, how it could go on
and complete the work. Ho did not
know what might arise in the future;
lie had not heard from Mr. l'aigo since
last Thursday. He supposed the city
would have to tako the bridge and com
plete it. The firm had no finances here
to complete the work, all its reserve
fund in the city treasury having boon
locked up. The best plan would be for
the city to complete tho~bridgc and'
charge i'aige, Carey & Co. with the cost,
lho bridge was noarly completed and
only a small amount more would be
needed, llo had received no instruc
tions from tho company. Most of the
material was on the ground.?MrTRiley
stated that tho duty of the commission
was clearly to adopt Mr. Brown's sug
gestion and finish the bridge.'
Mr. Ellingham said the material on
tho ground had been paid. foiv.by the
city and that attaclinientsWu boon
issued on it. Mr. Rilcv replied that
that didn't matter much, as tho city
owned tho material. If tho pooplo re
fused to reloasa tho attachments it
would take somo tiino. to decido tho
titlo to tho matorial; but the city
could go ahead and use tho 'material,
and if the court afterwards decided that
the material did not belong to the city,
the city could then pay for it.
Mr. Riley read several clauses.in the
contract empowering tho'city to'go
ahead with tho work in case tho con
tractors refused or were unable to com
pleto the bridge.
Mr. liuishoimer moved that tho city
finish the work, requiring bond oi what
ever contractors it might-employ, and
charge the cost of tho work to I'aigo,
Carey & Co. Tho motion was carried.
Mr. Brown asked that an estimate of
all tho work done and the material on
hand bo takon, so that tho firm would
know tho value of what had been done
on tho contract, up to the time it was
taken out of their hands. In reply to a
question .Mr. Riley said that the com
mission could go ahead and finish the'
contract, without asking/Council, that
authority having been granted the com
mission when it was appointed.
Mr. Hallock was asked how ho would
charge for the work,, there being a
good deal of cut stone' and other mater
ial on hand. Mr. Brown suggested'tliat
Mr. Hallock could bo' employed to su
perintend tho work and bo piiid a por
. Mr. Riley suggested that tho commis
sion go over tho work and sce'how much
it would take, and agree to pay Mr. Hal
lock the prico agreed 011 with I'nige,
Carey it Co. Mr. Brown ropojitod his
suggestion, that Mr. Hallock bo em
ployed as superintendent, the city pay
ing him 'a percentage, the city to
pay all the bills, and tho total cost to
be deducted from tho amount* duo
Paige, Carey & Co.
Mr. Brown suggested that'the city en
gineers prepare a contract with Mr.
Hallock and submit it to 'tho commis
sion for approval. Mr. Drown was
asked what porcentaw) he thought Mr
Hallock ought to have. Ho replied that
as it was a small piece of work, con
sisting of odds mid ends, fifteen por
cent would bo about right. City Engi
neer llogo agreed with Mr. Brown" that
fifteen por cent would ho a fair compen
sation. Mr. Hallock expressed him-,
solfas satisfied, and tho commission
agreed unanimously to make a contract
with -Mr. Hallock to finish the job.
Mr. Ilogo was instructed to niafco an
estimate as to what a wing wall would'
cost, built to sustain tho'.street and.
Eidowalks at tho soutwest corner of tho
bridge. Tho building of the wing wall
is niado necessary by tho 'caving in of
tho street and the collapse of tho build
ings at tho southwest corner of tho
bridge. . As tho contractors, aro liable
tho cost of the wing wall will bo do
ducted from tho amount due Paigo,
Carey it Co.
