Tba Bridf Question.
i The few remarks we throw out ft week ago in
reference to the two bridges built across the main
canal at this city during hut winter, have pro
duced one of tho main object we had in view,
which was, to elicit such a ventilation of the
matter aa would enable our people to understand
tho exact situation. The lengthy communica
tion in another column on the subject may be
regarded as a full and fair statement of the case
on the side of the authorities of our city ; and
however clear and decided may be the views en
tertained by many on the other aide, it must be
conceded that the case, in a legal point of view,
is not without its complications.
S far as' we are personally concerned we have
no desire iu the matter beyonl that tho question
shall be speedily settled in such a way as to put
the bridges into active use, whether that shall be
dono by the city, town,' or "any other man." In
opposition to the view taken by the city authori
ties, however, 'we can, without becoming a party
to the diHfuwion, state that ft view something
like tho fallowing is entertained : 1 The city of
Ottawa, by alaw of their stato passed some years
ago, was released of all charge r responsibility
ia reference to keeping up roads aud bridges ia
the township of Ottawa" outside the city limits,
in consideration that she would take full charge
of the roads, streets, bridges, &c., insido of those
limits, tho portion 'of tho town outside the lim
it' being eially released aa to ruch charges in
side. Whan it was proposed, however, to build
these canal bridges, it was urged that, from their
location; they' woald really benefit that portion
of tho towa outside of the city as much as they
would most of the city itself, and it was there
fore but fair that "tie outside portien of the town
shoul J contribute its proportion of the expense of
building them.' ' So a epeoial law bad to be pass
ed to levy a tax on the whole township, to raise
the money to pay for the bridges. And this is
just what the law did. , It provided for a tax to
raise tho means, and appointed three commiss
ioners under whose direction the means were to
be expended and the bridges built. When com
pleted and accepted by tho commissioners, their
office ccswsd, and the law made it the duty of tho
City of Ottawa U maintain and keep tho bridges
in reiwiir, and, if pivot bridges, to open them for
the passage of boats. Tho law was doubtless
lame in ibis particular that, if tho tcttcie town
was so equally interested in .the bridges as to
make it just that the whole town should pay for
the-r euciiua, then like justice would require
that .he whole towa (instead of the citv alone
1 should bo charged with tho expense of Untliog
SJid keeping them in repair. But though the
law, ia this respect, is doubtless unjust, can the
city authorities sot its positive injunction at de
Suppose, for instance, a boat carrying a cargo
worth $.jO,000 should but against the bridge,
and instead of sending the bridze to '"kiiudora
come," should itsolf go to tha bottom. The law hav
tng made it the duty of the city of Ottawa to
keep the bridges open, and that duty ha vine
been neglectsd, who would pay for the cargo ? '
Just one word more. It is admitted, we be
lieve, that so far as the superstructure goes, the
bridges are well built, but it is urged that the
piers upon which they are placed beinr crib
piers instead of solid, masonry, as they should
have been, aie worthless, and in proof of this
the fact is stated that tho bridges have already
sagged so much out of level, that it is almost im
possible to turn them. Now we are told bv ex
cellent mechanics that, in cases like this, the crib
pier, built of heavy plank, is the best and most
solid of all piers ; and that tho sagging of theso
piers is owing entirely to a slight swelling of the
plank from being submerged for the first time
under water, a. faultthat,can be permanently
remedied at a very slight expense. Is this not
worth looking into P ,'
Improvements. -p-Ai a resident of tho "West
Side," wo should be exceedingly ungrateful not
to make our acknowledgements to the editors of
the Ottawa Republican for the handsome notice
they hayo been pleased to take of . the improve
ments going forward in that qusrtcr. In addi
tion to noticing the new fence of Mr. Lockwood,
however, it is suggested that a reference to tho
fino residence being erected by Mr. Sirawn, an
other by Mr. Fowell, and a few dozen more sack
littlo improvements now in progress in that
quarter might havo added interest to the article.
lleui that Dr. McArthur is adorning his grounds
with gravel walks was certainly not above tho
editors' capacity. In imitation of the generous
spirit, displayed by the Ilepullicm editors in no
ticing tho improvements in the -western part
of the city, we took a stroll to tho oast side the
other day, and aftor passing the perils of the
middle passage from the bridgo to tho mainland
beyond, noticed, away out on Main street, that
tke spirit of improvement was indeed making
giant strides. One gentleman had patched his
sidewalk, and another his fence with, as much as
a dozen new pickets. There may bo soma other
improvements going forward in that quarter, but
having on Republican specs, we naturally failed
to see them. ,

Struck by LlOHTirrao. During the scvero
thunder storm on Sunday tho house of Mr. M. II.
Prescott, ia East Ottawa, was struck by light
ningthe "fluid oeaaiag do wa the lightning
rod below the eaves to one of the fastenings
which had been mad aa excellent conductor by
being thickly coated with paint. A bed room on
tho east side was considerably torn up and sun
dry articles scattered about with decided loose
ness, but fortunately nothing was set oa fire.
Mrs. Armstrong had loft the room bat a moment
before tho shock.
The stabl- of Mr. Thomas, a block or . two
north, was also struck about tho same time.
The lightning seems to havo struck a troo near
the stable first, and then " glanced."
It certainly look like business to see the
stream ef customers constantly moving in and
out of Stiefel's Clothing Bazaar, whose new stock
of clothing, furnishing goods, hats, caps, trunks,

has arrived, and is all tho talk about town.

Good Residence POERTY.--Tho property of
fered for sale in an advertisement in another col

Show Windows. Thero is no better index of
the good taste and judgment displayed in the se
lectk.u ef the goods within than is afforded by
the owners of a store iu the arrangement and
decorutiori of their show windows. A botchy,
slovenly show window invariably suggests infe
rior, " slazy " goods. ' Now probably the hand
somest show windows in town to-day aro those
of Child & Bro's Boot aud Shoo store. We un
derstand the immediate credit for i the tasteful
und artistic arrangement is due to the pleasant,
neat, tidy clerks, Duu Brfggs and George Eich

undoubtedly due to hini who seleoted the goods
from which so rich a display can me made up.
