MUDDLE OVER PAVING PLANS AT COLUMBUS Asphalt People Said to Be Trying to Cause Opposition to the a a Brick Pavements. FREE ASPHALT SECTIONS Special to the Indianapolis Journal. COLUMBUS. Ind.. Ja i. li.-"If you will help me defeat the proposition to pave Washington and Fifth streets with trick, you can have the space in front of your residence paved with asphalt and it will i not cost you a cent." That was the proposition that a repre senative of an asphalt paving company is said to have made to certain residents of both streets. There is considerable contention as to whether Washington street and Fifth street will be paved with brick or asphalt. First, the City Council decided to pave with asphalt, but the property owners came In with remonstrances and petitions, saying they would rather have brick. The Coun cil then revised its decision and advertised for bids for the brick pavement of these two streets. At the last regular Council meeting the bids were opened and a large lot of trouble was opened at the same time. A resident of Fifth street, who favored asphalt, sent in a communication sta'aig that he would bring injunction proceedings against any one who attempted to lay brick on the street as he believed that a majority of the property owners had signed a remonstrance against brick and in favor of asphalt. A majority of the property owners along Washington street presented a petition asking that the plans b- ( hanged so that the pavement would be of asphalt instead of briek. It is stated that the representative of the asphalt company went to a resident on Fifth street and told him that if he would circulate a petition against brick, that the space in front of his residence would be paved without cost to himself. The resi dent refused to do this and the matter was taken up along different lines. NO SURPRISE CAUSED BY REMOVAL NOTICE Alexandria Had Been Expecting to Lose the Kelly Plant for Several Months.
