Attending the EDWARDSVILLE, Sept 32 A race to build a budge over the Illinois river to connect lower Calhoun county with the hard road* system in Jersey county at Grafton ta foreshadowed by a dispatch from Quincy telling of the purpose of the Calhoun Bridge Co. to get its preparations for bridge building under way. Last week a hearing was held before a representative of the War Department at which two requests for a permit to span the Illinois river with a bridge were presented. One was a request sponsored by a group headed by H H Ferg-ison of Alton, for a permit to build the Marquette bridge over the Illinois at Deer Plain ferry The other was the request of the Calhoun Bridge Co. Group Tells Plans. The Quincy dispatch says: The Calhoun Bridge Co. announced today work will proceed next month on a bridge to cross the Illinois river 2.4 miles above Grafton in Calhoun county The bridge will be a combination vehicular and railroad span, a link on the Alton. Quincy St Northern Railroad project I which has been abandoned temporarily. “It will have a vertical clearance of 50 feet obviating a draw, and a horizontal clearance of 350 feet, between spans, insisted upon by the War Department instead of the original 250 feet. "The structure proper, without trestles, will be about 3000 feet long " This bridge company ta promoted by Charles Petsch Whether Petsch Intends to proceed under an old grant of permission to span th* Illinois river or seeks a new one ta not stated It will be recalled that a few years back Petsch had an arrangement with Calhoun apple growers to help him finance a bridge over the Illinois river the apple men to pay him 25 centi for every barrel of apples they harvested for three yean as contributions to the bridge building fund. That offer expired. Of late has come the Idea promoted by H. H Ferguson of Alum to pot in a vehicular bridge over the Illinois at Deer Plain ferry and this. it seems, was followed by the revival of the Petsch bridge enterprise. Ferryman Watrhc*.

The contest to build the Deer Plain bridge over the Illinois recalls a similar situation when the Alton and the Chain of Rocks bridge* were promoted and built under near like circumstances.
