Certainly the present city ad
- ministration is doing a lot of good
work. A lot of good street cross
ings are being 'put in, anda lot
of other street work is beingctone.
When the M. O..G. is completed
a lot more street work will be
necessary, especially on the
streets which the M. 0. G.
crosses. The grade of the .new
road is away above some of the
streets, and a lot of fills will have
to be made. Then, too, very
likely the city will order some
nice new walks to the new depot,
which, by the way, will be a very
handsome building.
The proposition to vote a lot
of bonds down in Ottawa county
4
for the purpose or Dunging some
twi r trpQ an A also for the buving
of two toll bridges was voted on
last Saturday ana aeieatea. ,toi
a very full vote was polled, but
the majoritv against the bonds
was a couple of hundred. Afton
and the south part of the county
voted almost solidly against the
bonds. The proposition would
have carried, however, if it had
not been for the knockers in the
county seat town of Miami. Mi
ami has some people within her
borders that seem to lack sense
than any town we know of. The
building of a lot of bridges in
Ottawa county would mean a
great deal to Miami, but the
hmmer club in that town was
out in full force, and got in its
work.
