FOURTH AVENUE VIADUCT.
Committee to Communicate with Rail
..roads Regarding its Construction.
Aldermen I. It. I test and J. M. Shol
ton of the second ward, who were tip-l-oliited
by the muyor at a recent meet
ing of the city council, as a commit
tee to Investigate why the vladuut
on Fourth nvenue, northeast, In the
second ward, has not been coiiHtmUod
us was promised by the railroads, will
lake Immediate stoM to Investigate
The council understood that the rail
roads would build the viaduct ami
had some contract to that effect, but
the roads have failed to do anything
so far. Thu committee will Investi
gate and report at thu next incui'.ig
of the council.
In speaking of tho building of thu
viaduct the mayor stated thut It w.u
his understanding thut It was to I uvt
been built kouio mouths ago end the
matter had nearly ecnpcd Mrt 'locu
tion, lie Instructed tho co.Din.ttco to
urge thu necoHslty of Immo-ll.-U? -ic
Hon on the part of thu ntllrcn U for
Its building, and to got tho.ii 1 1 be
gin work on it boon. Thu lU'lu.-t. Is
to be built Jointly by tho different
roads and this has necessitated Bonn-1
delay, as one road tnkos tho posltl'm
that It Is ready and waiting on the
other, whllu the other takes thu same 1
stand. Mayor Dick stated thai It w-m '
his opinion that tho roads do not ii.
tend to try to gut out of bulldld the 1
viaduct, but that it has been ing'oc-1
ed, and tho committee Is to jog ihe-lr
Washington Street to the Dad.
There nre several placeB on North
Washington street which need Uie
atentlon of tho streot commissioner
and u forco of men. It la a fact that
there nre many such In the city, but
there Is no sitroot in the city which
has beeu cut up and left In the condi
tion that North Washington has. Af
ter it heavy rain It Is very dlllloult to !
drive a buggy up thu stroot. This Is
ono of the principal residence streets

Its passengers. It Is estimated that be
tween two hundred and lift)' and three
hundred people were fed heiu yester

be done every day while they nre de
layed hi re. The road Is offering all an
opiMirtunlty lo return to Oalneavllle
