"I was very much surprised when I read
Mr. Adacas' ipoci ia the council regard
ing disposition of the street car company
toward the city," said Managing Director
Louderback last night, "for a short time
ago Mr. Adams came to me in a spirit of
friendliness and asfted me if we could not
pat in the planks ia certain portions of
the tracks as the council requested. I
told him we proposed to and he asked
when, I said as soon as we could pos
sibly get around to it as all
all the men we could get were busy track
laying and grading. He asked me if I
would give .him a letter to the council
setting forth our determination to com
ply with the council's orders, and I did.
I wrota it and gave it to him and he as
sured me he would present it. He surely
must haye forgotten that conversation
with me and the possession of the letter,
hut I gave it to him nevertheless and at
his request at that."
"As to the Milan road, we had shown
our purpose with reference to it, as Supt
Huntoon tells me he had commenced
properly planking it Monday morning
just as soon as bis men coald be spared
from relaying and wiring the track be'
yond the city limits."

Kreat energy. The rank and file of the

party. The Democratic party is the party
tf the people. They are the people, and
t hey have a few planks which they want
to see in the platform of the people's par

Hates and, as Democrats, they will send
delegates to the national convention who
will, as Democrats, ask that the AHUnce
