Frank Burch showed that tho C street viaduct is the only inlet to Pu eblo from the Santa Fe trail, the route by which a dargo per cent of Colorado tourists enter tho state, ac cording to R. G. Bunker. Burch stat ed tiiat that viaduct had been on fire many times, set by flying sparks from locomotives, and should it be destroyed by fire, it would mean that farmers would have to go 10 miles east of Pu eblo to cross the Arkansas river and ••liter from the north side of tho river, because they could not enter town by the Spring street viaduct. Phil Phlibin, Sr., spoke on the handi cap of having only ono entrance to Pueblo and further showed the need of a bridge of a permanent nature over the Arkansas river on S.'yita Fe ave nue. It was brought out that Pueblo now needs the tourist trade to rebuild and if a permanent structure can not be. erected now, a temporary one should be built to take care of the BOYS INTERRUPT THE COURT TO GET DOG A crowded and busy court room did not causo two young boys of tl>o ages of 4 and 6 years to falter in their mission to free their dog which had been taken by the dog catcher because it did not wear a 1922 license.
