Men In Charge of Building of Curbs
and Sidewalks Are Accused of Ac.
. cepting Inferior Work
Two Vroonmn act Inspectors were
discharged from the street department
yesterday because they werculiot, In
Superintendent Hanley's opinion,^per
forming their duties properly. Inspec
tor Trill wns In charge of 'the gutter
and cement contract that Contractor
Oswald Is carrying out on Malcdmson
street, near Moneta avenue.
Inspector Henry (_}. Domlny was In
charge of another cement and gutter
contract which was let to Tryon &
Brain on Thorpe street, between Main
street and Moneta avcnucl' Domlny
was nn' Inspector under Werdln and
continued in his place under Superin
Trill, was appointed by Hanley upon
the recommendation of a number of
persons who are owners of property
that Is being improved. (
The complaint against the men ' is
that they were not supervising tho
work according to the specifications In
the ordinance. The law provides that
a box of given dimensions shall be used
In which the material to be used Is to
be mixed. It also provides the propor
tion of each element that shall enter
Into the composition. The thickness of
the finished work is also provided for
In tIM ordinance.
Superintendent Hanley says he found
that the men were not enforcing the
provisions of the ordinance, and as
soon as he made the discovery he dis
charged them both. Hanley Intimated
that, the men offered. the defense that
the law was not' properly drawn. .
"I have*nothlng to do with the law
except to enforce It," said Mr. Hanley.
"I can only enforce it as it Is now. If
It is not a good law the counclll has
power to amend it."
In the street department tho dis
charge of Domlny and Trill is looked
upon as an evidence that Hanley was
In earnest when he said he would give
the city a businesslike administration.

Mitchell forwarded his spouse a tour

The ticket arrived, but Mrs. Mitchell
hesitated, sayliiß that the railroad

Mitchell, to show hta disapproval,
promptly filed suit for divorce in Judge

of t!v» plaintiff.
This wim not conducive to' Mitchell's
