Attica Ledger Press (Newspaper) - February 26, 1915, Attica, Indiana Indiana state lib the Attica Ledger press Ross Brothers publisher Attica Indiana. Friday. February 26, 1915. Esta bushed 1851�?l.-p. Vol. 3, no. 22council orders sewer system besides upon improvement for North half of the Miles of laterals will Drain All North of main St. Will Cost in neighbourhood of s 12,000 and furnish service to some two Hundred business houses and Homes. What promises to be a Long step Forward was taken monday night by the City Council when a Resolution ordering the construction of a sanitary sewer system covering practically All of the Northern half of the City was past by unanimous vote of those present. Councilman Haller was absent in California but had he been Quot present his vote would or questionably have been cast in favor of the improvement As he has Long been interested in the proposition to j the matter had been Dii Cust at two j or three previous meetings and Engi i Neer Young had been instructed to pre i pare preliminary planet. Last summer with this improvement in View Mas or j Reed caused a of Splete Survey to be made and maps prepared showing tiie 1 Topography and a in Piete sewer system. V r the Lefiti recite. These plans will be in , Utho some Charig Vii be made in the de Tarifi. The a a a of so the portion this is to be i built at this time that future Axtt Nusi Ocan be Hui it Ami it the Quot Ritner. Phin Vav i i be and herein of Viu n a kit a Rion ent Dutrh to priv id r the or Vtha f tie City for or by Virs to cot Quot. The of. Is h to City g the it to . A porn Iii can \ to Iii a d t a Urr y to the Best to convard the Stream that runs thru City from Liavine Park. I View of shia a is Inch i main will Raj Laid from the River up Yount Street Shieh is the Street run Ning by the Lier to ii very barn to fifth Street ther be oing South a Short to ferry an i then East again to the in terse Tiomi it of Brady and Summit. This will constitute the main and i will be built at the expense if the in i tire City an App privation of to hav ing been included in the annual budget for this year for that purpose. The first lateral will extend up third Street from ferry to Logan thence East on Logan to the first Alley East of Perry and North in that Alley to my Berry Street. The lateral will j run up p Lith Street from Yount to West. Another runs up Brady from j ferry to West Street with a Branch j extending eastward on Columbia to its j intersection with Summit Street. Con i nesting with the Brady Street lateral at the Junction of Brady and West streets a line runs the full length of West Street and on Mulberry As far As the Alley East of Perry. Connecting with this Branch is another extending from West Street up Taylor Street to Hollosy. From the South end of West Street the line runs eastward on Summit to Hollosy. Branching off this at Canada Street is the line which runs up Canada to Ravine Park Avenue and thence East along the South Side of that Avenue one Block. From that Point the sewer will Branch off into Ravine Park running southeasterly thru the old gravel pit North of the Prairie dog Village and skirting the Side of the Hill around the Lagoon to a Point near the South West Corner of Andrew Brad Shaw s property thence crossing the Park southward and emerging at the Alley East of Don Young s new House. Running thence up the Alley East of Avenue three it will extend to Jackson Street thence Westward on Jackson to the Alley Between Joe Twiss and Paul Williamson s residences and northward along that Alley to the rear of minor Crone s lot which will be the head of the sewer. Between this Point and Perry Street there will be a fall of Over Uii feet. A Short Branch will sex i tend Down the Alley to Emory Hoover s lot and another will extend North in the i Alley Between avenues two three. I still another Branch will leave Jackson Street at the Alley East of Avenue three and go South to the Alley Heth Ern Jack Bon and main it x Al i g this Alley West to Avi l u two and eastward to and Tir cry Jan s Iro Perry which will be the easter Rno to Point reach by the sewer. Going Back to the East end of the main at Brady and Summit another Branch will Start there extend South along Brady to main thence Southeast along main Street to its intersection with Jackson just East of the school House. The Resolution to order the construction of the sewer was made by councilman Jones and after its adoption March 8th was fit As the time for hearing objections. The Council has absolute Power to order the improvement Over any objections that May be made but pig Village Man Esta Bushes a Val the councilmen desire to know the at . Olino wins important Case Titue of the property owners toward the improvement. The whole project includes about 12,000 feet of fewer and Engineer Young estimates that its construction will Cost around a Dollar a Lineal foot including the main. Deducting the $3,500 which the City is to pay for the main this leaves about $8,500 to be paid by the property owners. The assessment will be made after the manner of Street and sidewalk improvements except that it will be a Fiat assessment of an equal amount on each lot instead of being charged according to frontage. The Justice of this is obvious As the Man whose lot has a 50-foot frontage on the sewer would get As much Benefit from it As one where the sewer ran along both front and Side of his lot. For this reason All lots within the District served by the sewer and abutting on it at any Point will be assets the same. This will probably not exceed $50 a lot As it is now estimated and payment will be made easy by issuing Bonds and spread ing the payments Over ten years. In View of the fact that the Northern part of the City is underpaid with Clay and shale so that practical dry we Lis Are impossible it is expected property owners will the move rather than object to it.

The charges for transporting the three race horses to Huntington was $33, and a car Load of cattle or horses could be ship to Chicago about the same distance for $20 or 10c per hundredweight with a minimum weight of 20,000. It is presumed that the jury concluded that the rate was too High and that because of the greater risk a higher rate was charged and that the company knew its contract was void and it would Likely have to pay for a horse occasionally. The decision of the supreme court in this Case is one of the most important to the people that has been pronounced for years. Under this decision in spite of All commissions and rate makers and railway companies the common Carrier is bound to perform it common Law duty while in this state will be the Prin country will find i to be a reasonable charge on reasonable Conditi inns.

It is understood that the Glascock Are to receive an annuity of $500 As Long As they live. The Bible chair department at Indiana is an institution within but not of the University and has been maintained by the Christian Church.
