of any meeting or committees pro
ceeding of any kind regarding the

you they do demand au itemized
statement of tho work.
On motion of Mr. Ewart the
communication was nceaptod and
referred to the comptroller for
him to send ail itemized bill to
the Kent Comity Levy Court.
Constable Samuel W. Van Horn
having made a settlement with the
court his bill of S-'Jd.o!) was al
lowed.
For
nearly an hour the
court talked over specifications
relating to Seventh street bridge
with Contractor Patrick Fahey. /
President Willitts stated that; - -
Mr. Fahey was present as request
ed by the court and that tho
iSeventh street bridge bill would
again bo taken up.
The clerk read Mr. Fahey's bill
recently submitted to tho court
which calls for $8,000 balance on
(he original contract which was
$2*5,000 and $5,008.00 for extra
work.
1 'resident Willitts told Mr Fahey
that he
tlie court to get rid of the hill. Ho
h. ud, however, that tlie court want
ed to find out ou what authority he
had changed the plans ot the
bridge from a 42 to a 24 feet bridge.
Mr. Fahey said he received his or
ders to make tlie changes Item the
bridge committee and its superin
tendent.
Mr Willitts asked if lie had any
thing to prove that the orders were
given to him by the bridge commit
tee. Mr. Fahey replied that he
had the original plans and specifi
cations with him. lie said ho also
had Specifications alter the change
was made from a 42 to 24 ft. bridge.
dent Willitts claimed that
the records ol theourt would show
plans but lor u 42 (eel bridge,
Mr, Fahey claimed that none of
the plans were on the records. At
the request ol President Willitts,
Clerk Outgley read from the min
ute book a record oi plans tor a 42
It bridge on November 21, 19'JO.
Mr. ('handler showed a plau lor

stated he never bid ou and said he
could prove that he never built on
it. lie said lie thought il was not
treating him fairly to produce
plans he knew nothing about.
In answer lo Mr Ewart's ques
tion Mr. Fahey said he bid on a 42, '
30, 21 and 16 ft. bridge.
At tine point the records were
gone over. j
Mr. fjuigley said them was no
note ot any contract since Septem
ber 1899. Mr. Fahey aaicl he re
ed tho contract 1 for a 30 ft.
bridge iu July 1899. j
Mr. Ewart said lliat Mr. Ealisy is
making a claim for a bridge which
have .10 record, which the lull cr
admitted. Mr. Ewart said that tlie
bridge was built as verbally author
ized by the bridge committee and
that the whole situation is what are
we going to do about it. He thought
it was a matter upon which some ac- \
lion shou!d t be taken, lie said if Mr.
Fahey has a proposition to offer or
if the court has one Lo offer they
should work on the basis of a 21 foot
bridge.
President Willits said it was a
question as lo whether the commit
tee had a right to give out a contract
for over $500. Mr. Ewart thought
that tue committee hud no right to V
give a fresh contract without getting
bids.
On motion Court adjourned until
2 o'clock this afternoon and the
Court's attorney apd Mr. Fahey were
requested to meet the Court as a
committee of the whole at that
time.
