Charles L. Howe terms a swindle against
the city was disclosed yesterday in Rut
land county court in the trial of the
case of John Burton and James E. Creed,
local contractors, vs. the city of Rut
land to recover $1,125 for building a
culvert in '1911. Payment of the bill,
which was the contract price, was re
fused because a few weeks after the
culvert was done a part of the cement
siding broke in half and fell away.
Mr. Creed testified in the afternoon
that in submitting the low figures on
which he got the contract, he did no
base his price on the quality of cement
work called for in the city's specifica
tions, but that he had a private arrange
ment with City Engineer A. C. Grover
whereby, if he got the contract, "he
could use stones in filling in for a base
for the cement. The city claims that
it was this insecure base which caused
the cement to crack. Five lawyers are
fighting the esse. T. W. Moloney and
G. W. I'latt appearing for the plaintiffs
and Marvelle C. Webber, Walter S. Fen
ton and Mayor ,Howe for the defendant.

its second annual picnic and outing at
Dewey park yesterday, the affair being
an old-fashioned basket picnic. Dur
ing the dsy there gathered about 60
people, including the families of the
members. As the outcome of last year's
gathering was not financially successful,
yesterday's program was not so elabo
rate. .
The party commenced to gather at the
park about 10 o'clock and the forenoon
was passed ' enjoyably. At noon the
gathering withdrew to the grove above
the pavilion, and the basket lunch was
served on the rustic tables.
In the afternoon sports were indulged
in at the athletic field. The baseball
game between the married and single
men was the chiet attraction of the
sports." The single men carried off the
honors after a six-inning struggle, which
furnished hilarity for the onlookers.
The pitching of Davis for the single
men was unsolvable, proving to be a big
factor in the winning for his aggrega
tion. He was assisted behind the bat
by Lafiin. The battery for the bene
dicts was Brigham and Carey. Quoit
hurling and throwing at the rag doll
furnished much amusement ' for others.
George E. Ford and E. A. Carey were in
charge o! the sporting end ot the out
ing. Those in charge of the outing and
picnic composed: G. h. lord, tarl Rol

Registration Already Larger Than Dur.
ing Last Year's Fall Term.
The registration of students in Spauld
ing high school at the close of the firet
week of school shows a total of 27P,
which is one larger than at any time
during the fall term last yearj and, in
addition, several more students are ex
pected to resume their studies next
The students are divided by classes,
as follows: seniors, 54; middlers, 30;
juniors. 84; sub-juniors, 102. The rea
son for the small size of the middle
class is that there are no eommercial
students in that class, due to the length
ening of the commercial course at the
time the class entered the high school.
Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Smith and Mr.
