WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1895.
8AY8 IT 18 8P1TE. CONTRACTOR THOMPSON PREPARED TO FIGHT HIS CASE. Says Architect Jackson is Trying to Get Even With Him Wants a Disinterested , Party to Pas Upon the Work That Plan i Will Suit the Architect. "It is a matter of personal spite," said Contractor Patrick Thompson this after noon when interviewed by a representa tive of the Democrat in reference to Architect J. A. Jackson's views on the Bishop street school matters as pub lished in our issue last evening. "When Elans for the proposed new High school ulldingand the addition to the Bishop street school were called for," said Mr Thompson, "Mr Jackson waited on me and asked me to use my influence with the members of the district committee in order to secure the acceptance of his plans. I refused point blank to do it and told him that the fight was between himself and Smith and that as I had to deal with each man on various occasions I did not propose to make an enemy for myself with either- man. Jackson's plans were accepted and I got the con tract for the mason work and as soon as I got started he commenced to antagonize me. I have the best work men in the city and the material I am using is exactly what the contract calls for. I don't ask any man to take my word for this. I am prepared to submit the case to any impartial mason or builder in the city, and if such a man does not say that the work is being done according to the plans and speciti rations T won't ask one cent for what I have done. My men laughed at what the architect said about inferior mate rial and ' continued at their work, for they knew that no fair man would find fault with the work or the quality of the material. I did not stop on the job, as was stated. There was more -work done there to-day than there was in any ten hours since it was started,and J propose to continue in the same way until the whole thing is finished and when I am through the district com mittee and the public will have an op portunity to see what it looks like. "Jackson says he will not -accept my work. In answer to this, I desire to say that I positively refuse to accept his de cision. The plans and specifications are before me and I propose to use them as my guide in doing my part of the con tract, and if I do this I do not think the public will say that I should pull oft' my men and discontinue opera tions to suit Mr Jackson's whim." Architect Jackson said this afternoon that it was not spite on his part that caused him to object to the work. It was a matter of justice not alone to the taxpayers but to the other contractors who bid on the work. Contractor Thompson, he said, failed to shore up the building to make it safe, and ignored the specifications in many ways. Mr Jackson said he was only too willing to have the matter sub mitted to a committee of competent builders to decide. u; frioctor Charged With Kape." : Bristol, Nov 9.
