Pulido sex minister of the Cabinet and exile from Venezuela arrived Here on the Prins William in. Since the accession to Power of Crespo in Venezuela general Pulido has been in retirement at Curacao. The arrival of the general Here would have caused Little comment had it not been accompanied by a Story that his visit was to put the finishing touches to the plot against the peace and Power of the present venezuelan administration. The tale told in connection with his arrival i9 that he has come to Confer with the venezuelan refugees in new York and Brooklyn and that when they have met and discussed their plans he will proceed to France to perfect final arrangements. These plans Are said to include the Purchase of a Light draft gunboat and the munitions of War for a considerable army of revolutionists. It is also said revolutionary societies Are actively at work in the Center of Venezuela that they have an abundance of arms that when the word is passed they will break into open conflict. With a gunboat of modern build and armament the revolutionary party in Venezuela would have a decided advantage since Crespo possesses nothing in the Way of a Navy save a few miserable underpowered tugs bolstered up with a �?T1 a or Iron Shields.

A some of the facts brought out by the examination of a witness in a Grade crossing properly guarded As Safe As could be Good Points for the people to keep track of. From daily Republican expire its March 30. During the past ten Days Joseph Ralston the Republican candidate for councilman in the third Ward has been the subject of continued abuse on the part of the evening news because of his War against the High Bridges in North Defiance. Do Piug the time that the suit grow no out of these Bridges was being Leard in this City the most valuable witness the City had in its fight against the Wabash railway was Dan w. Coy the democratic candidate for councilman in the same Ward. His testimony in the Case taken and transcribed by miss Mary Wineland the official stenographer is herewith appended without any abridgement what Ever. It will be noted that or. Coy was in favor of the removal of the High Bridges at that time and was one of the warmest supporters of the plan in the third Ward and gave Many pertinent reasons Why they should be torn Down. They were a intolerable nuisance. Again he said that the Grade crossing As contemplated by the ordinance would be As Safe a crossing As could be made at that Point if properly guarded. In speaking of the Bridge Over the railway on Ralston Avenue he said that very frequently heavily loaded teams drove through the Alley passed Bis Home that they might avoid it and Cross the Holgate Pike Bridge. It is the Bridge on4ralston Avenue that the Council has been talking of repairing that heavily Laened teams sought to avoid. This testimony is Given to the readers of the Republican express that they May understand that the very thing the evening news is abusing Joseph Ralston for had a in or. Coy at the crossing ordinance was adopted by the Council. There was one other pertinent Point in or. Coy a testimony and that is that he did not want the Grade in front of his premises raised. We challenged the news or any one else to produce a profile showing that it will not be raised if a Flat top Bridge is put across the railway on Holgate Pike. To take the Hump out of the Eamel backs the ends of the Bridges must go up and the Grade raised. The testimony of or. Coy will be found interesting because he tells in a forceful manner of Tho evils of the High Bridges. Or. Coy a testimony. Dan Coy being first duly sworn herein testified As follows q where do you live a North Defiance. Q How near to this High Bridge on Holgate Pike and the Brunersburg Road ? a about 300 feet feet from the Bridge on the Holgate Pike. Q How far from the Bridge on the Brunersburg Road which Side of the Holgate Pike do you live on ? a i live on the West Side. Q then that would be Between the Bridges ? a at Tho present time. Q How Long have you lived there ? a Well i have lived there about four months. Q prior to that time a i lived on what is called Ralston Avenue about the same distance from the Bridge on Ralston Avenue i lived there a Little Over four years four years and three months. Q what has been your business during that time a lumber business. Q what occasion have you had to use these highways either of them. On the Holgate Pike or Brunersburg Road a Well i have done great Deal of teaming Over both Bridges within the last four years. Q How Many teams have you had employed at different times Over these roads streets and Bridges ? a running from two to Twenty teams i to Ink i have had a High As Twenty teams employed a Day. Q at one time ? a yes sir a now you May state what if anything you know of happening in the Way of accidents on either of these by Zuges. A Well i have known quite a number of loaded teams attempting to go Over there and would draw their loads or Mithu confine your testimony j to what you yourself have seen. A yes sir that is what i have seen i have seen two teams one was loaded with Hickory lumber one with ties drawn for myself draw their loads to within about ten feet of the Bridge and the team could not take it any further the Load would Start Back and run Down Over the embankment and upset Hurt one of the houses and broke the Wagon All to pieces so it had to be taken to the shop and it Cost some $11.00 i believe to have it repaired. Q state any facts you know As to its being an obstruction to travel difficulty in crossing a Well it is very difficult for a loaded team to draw a Load on me top of the Bridge either Bridge they cannot do it cannot draw a heavy Load to the top. Q what experience if any have you had with the use of your own teams in that respect a Well i have helped a number of teams to it a loads across there with my team have taken it out after night for parties that had loads had a hard time going Over there started the Load and could not pull it Over. I have taken my team from the barn or caused it to be taken from the barn and helped parties Over several times within the last Winter i did that. Q you May state whether or not the Bridges As they exist at the present time form a Safe or dangerous crossing Oyer that Railroad for persons travelling on the Highway the use of the Highway for the purpose of drawing loads ? a Well sir i consider it dangerous for any Man to come there with a heavy Load. Q do you know of the Accident to John Lantow steam ? a yes sir he was teaming for me at that time he was hauling ties for me at the time of his Accident. Q which Bridge did that occur on ? a that was on Raison Avenue. I saw that. Q is that one of the ones you men honed a yes sir the other one was this Man George Henry had a Load of wheat up set on the Holgate Pike Bridge he drawer it to the top within ten feet of the top and the team commenced q you mean ten feet of the top Plank ? a yes sir there is the heaviest draw within eight or ten feet of the Plank of the Bridge the heaviest draw to go Over that Bridge he Drew it up to within eight or ten feet and then his team commenced to go Back words he could not get along Well he went Down and upset has Little girl a on the Wagon was under the Wagon bed upset the wheat some of it fell on her she was fast i helped take the Wagon from Over her it was Down on the sidewalls Ruht close within forty feet of the Bridge before it upset. Q what do you say if these grades were reduced to level grades in accordance with Tho provisions of this ordinance having a level from a Point Twenty five feet on each Side of the Center of the track extending backward from that p int Twenty five feet on each Side five feet to the Hundred ascent would it make a Safe crossing or otherwise ? a Well i would Bay with the proper signals there the Graae would make in comparatively Safe. Q would it be As Safe a crossing As could be made at that Point ? a think so. Cross examination by or. Smith. Loaded teams q y is for any thing account of the steepness of the Grade. Q where does that difficulty assume its greatest propositions ? a it is within about forty feet of the Bridge Well it will Ruu from the top of the Bridge forty feet either Way on the North Side. In the Winter time the Snow Falls on top of the Bridge the Sun comes out and melts the Snow right off of the top of the Bridges and it is nearly Bare and in a very Slippery time horses to pass Over there have to be Well shod Sharp at All times of the year got to be in the Best condition to draw a moderate Load Over there. Q so then one of the difficulties is when the team strikes the Plank ? a yes sir. I have seen teams come there with loads poorly shod. They would slip and fall and the Load would Start Back when it snuck the Plank. Have seen five loads to my personal knowledge upset there in that very Way q is there any difference in the two Crossings in respect to this a yes sir the one on Ralston Avenue is the hardest to get Over it is the steepest close to the Bridge it is the hardest draw a great Many heavy loaded teams come Down across the Alley and come Down past my place and Cross the North Bridge Chat is the one on Holgate Pike. Q by or Smith the danger of Grade Crossings would be enhanced by having two so close together ? a i do not know As it would. Or. taxes was he allowed to default them because of work done for the gang ? easter egg dyes. Lima Northern r. W. Of. The company incorporated at Columbus thursday Tho route. Q do you own the property where you now reside a yes sir. Q and is there any Elevation in front of your premises by. Reason of the approaches to the Bridge on the Holgate Pike a no i think not there is a Grade there about two feet and a half it done to elevate until it. Runs just about to the Corner of my lot to go on the Bridge. Q i suppose that it the Hump were taken out As mentioned in the Testi Mony of or Squires and the approaches lengthened out to make the Rise of the approach gradual it would raise the Grade in front of your premises ? a yes sir. Q that you would object to a yes sir. Q and the fact is you arc engaged in handling a Large number of teams i understand a yes sir. Q that gives you of course a special interest in having the grades made easy for the passage of teams ? a yes sir. Q you have an interest yourself personally have you not in agitating for the removal of the High Bridges a yes sir i am in favor of having them removed. Q you have been one of the chief instigators ? a i am concerned that is right. I circulated a petition. Q your own interests did that is i suppose was because of your business a to get rid of that intolerable nuisance. Q you consider them an intolerable nuisance a i do sir consider them a nuisance. Q you mean to say that you think if these Crossings were reduced to Grade Crossings As provided by this ordinance that it would be safer than now do you ? a if they Are properly guarded i thick they Are. Q what do you mean by properly guarded a put a Man there to guard the crossing at the time of a preaching trains or an electric signal there As you have up above. Q if they should Dot be properly guarded then you would consider them More dangerous than the present Bridges a that is a pretty Haic question to answer or. Smith without having them guarded or without a guard there or a signal i do not know but what they would. Q they would be More dangerous for children in any Case would they not going across across to and or than an present. A yes. Sir. Q under any circumstances Grade Crossings would be More dangerous for Safdi children a without guard. Q then with it guarded ? a no to if it is done As passed the ordinance q there is no danger after a Senger get up the Steps ? a no sir there is not q there would unavoidably be dauger at Grade Crossings a yes More or less danger sir. Q so that the removal of these Bridges would necessitate the adoption of very extra precaution to pre vent Accident on the part of this City or railway company or both would it not a Well in regard to teams crossing i would think it would be very necessary to have a signal or have it guarded. Q Aud it is True is it not that these particular Grade Crossings there in View of he deep cuts which existed at that Point would be More dangerous than Ordinary Grade Crossings hich were simply upon the level surface of the ground ? a. With a loaded team i do not know whether the Cut would be s efficiently deep to Hido the sight from approaching trains or not a Man in a Rig for instance i do not know As that Cut would be deep enough i to hide the View of an a preaching train either Way i do not think it is. Q suppose it were in Point of fact that would add to the danger ? a i do not know but what it would some. Q is it not a fact that the descent which is contemplated by this ordinance coupled with the fact that there is a Cut there would make this particular Grade crossing More dangerous than one which is right at the level where there is no obstruction a Well it might. Re examination by or. Hubbard. Q the High Street Grade crossing has existed there for thirty or forty years. A Well it has existed there since i came to this town. Q has there been any accidents at that crossing ? a i never heard of any. Q by or. Smith do you know one so Mariott i do not no. Know a number of men by the name of Mariott. Q you do not know Simeon ? a no sir. Q did you Ever hear of an Accident to him ? a i never did. Q by the court what is the Peculiar reason for the present Crossings being difficult or. Coy i a. Their being difficult Crossings for t the following bit of news was sent out from Columbus Aud will be of in Terest to the people of this City the Lima Northern railway co.

The hard times did not excuse the Farmers Labouring men and hundreds of other business . The Herold does nothing of the kind and you know it. That paper proves that or. Hatry has paid in the neighbourhood of $1,700 in taxes in the last ten years a Hundred times More than the writer of the above lines Ever paid unless it be in internal Revenue news the writer has not been carrying a $15,000 or $20,000 Stock of goods in the past ten years. If he had he would have managed in some Way to have paid his taxes. Nor has he contributed a mite to the internal Revenue tax when compared to the Sagwa Loving Grinders managers and owners of the organs on the Alley. But that is not the Point. Or. Hatry was named As a Model candidate for Council by the democratic a a gang cadre in the first Ward. We insisted that a Man who was called upon to expend the taxes of the people of the first Ward should be a Man who was prompt in the payment of his own. We gave the Book Page and line show that or. Hatry was delinquent. This Las never been denied and the Only excuse that has Ever been offered for this delinquency was that the times were hard and he could not them. The hard times however did not excuse the germans and other tax payers in the Ward. Andy Sauers individual guardian and Bank taxes were allowed to become delinquent and the county lost something like $3,000 in this one Case alone because treasurer Barney and auditor Deindoerfer failed to do their duty. If treasurer Barney failed it was auditor Deia Doerfert a duty to Haye forced the collection of or. Hatry a taxes Why did he not do it when sex sheriff Rath was taken into the Back room of the savings Bank and compelled to swear allegiance to the a gang a or. Hatry is said to have been one of the men who was there to see that the Job was Well done. Was it because he belong to this famous a a gang that or. Hatry was allowed to default his taxes if not what was the reason i. Brown is one of the Best known German american citizens in the City. He pays his taxes promptly and during the two years he has been in the Council has kept every pledge made to his constituents. He is not owned by a a a gang that has allowed him to default his taxes and increase the burdens of legitimate tax payers because of political work that had been done for the a gang elect Brown.
