The Only Point in Ca Ling attention to that matter in that if such a Dona Ion was , it was very Kin j on the part of some one.

Edmondstone c. A a a City civil Engineer aft r a c Reful revision of my no o Book and the pub Lisbe i reports of the Council proceedings since september lust i am forced to the conclusion that so far a the Preston run Bridge is concerned the c to Engineer does not appear to Cut so great a figure Asmi it have be n expected. Preston run Bridge is on Columbus Avenue in East Defiance. A the Council has a Rule i done to know whether it is authorized by Law or not but it is a Good one nevertheless and should be enforced of All occasions that the Street of ail new editions should be properly graded before the comic i dedicates the plat auditors p at on the East Side Trad the Crescent addition on the North Side have not i Lelieve been dedicated because the requirements regarding the grading of the streets had not been carried out. It is my understanding tint when the plat of which Columbus Avenue is a part was de melted the streets had not lean graded to the satisfaction of the Council but that a Bond had been Given that they would be so Gra led. Of course if Columbus Avenue was Ever to be Opan to traffic a Culvert and fill or a Bridge across Preston run was a necessity. Knowing t tis the members of the Council could not in Justice to the tax payers have dedicated the plat of the addition understanding that in would Daveent lied the immediate expenditure of $2,000 or $3,000 to open up one of the streets in such addition. Looking at it from that stand Point it will appear that the one urging the dedication and not the City should have met the expense of bringing it up to the Standard required i y the rules of the count i i remember that last october the re was talk of the Preston run Bridge being built by private parties. It was my understanding at the time that plans and specifications of the Bridge bad been prepared. Indeed it a absolutely necessary unless the Council abrogated one of its rubs Tab o badge or fill be j it in on Columbus Avenue by private parties before the plat of the addition in which it was located could be dedicated. If i have not lost the run of the Story it was the purpose to use Lions from the old Hopkins Street Bridge in the proposed pres on run i Ridge. I think there were still some bids und it r consist ration by private parties when the question of a Bridge was first sprung in the count i. Tuesday evening october loth a Resolution was introduced to build a Bridge Over Preston run. October 2 it the the contract was let to Siudy of this by for $2395. He sub lit the contract of super Struc ure to the Snith Bridge company. At the regular meeting of 1 he Council tuesday evening february 4th, it has d that the City Engineer presented a report Lecon intending the accept Anc j of the Preston run Bridge. It does not appear i believe upon to e records of the meeting that evening that such a report had be n received. At n adjourned meeting of the Council wednesday evening february 5tb, when the acceptor the Bridge come up for consideration the Engineer Eta fied to a7 the i Ridge fully met the requirements of the plans and specifications barring about Eig Ity or ninety boards in the floor and those should be removed. The Council finally concluded to submit a proposition to St title with the contractor by deducting $500 from Bis Bill. There the matter rested and i learn that the contractor will not agree to any such deduction. I can not Anders Ami what Rig lit the Connell a to claim that it i the victim of misplace i Conli i Nee. To at it has been deceived by the City Engineer and la of that sort of thing. The burning question is who did it Ever touch or s on run Bridge at Al t if the plat cd the addition Iii which the bring a was located could not to dedicated until the r uni regents of the Council had been complied with Why in heavens name did it step in and Tako from Tho shoulders of the Man or men who urged the Dedlow Ilion the very burdens that it i and impose i by its own Rill no and shift tile burdens to the shoulders of All Tho taxpayers in the cd by the Dis the main pain it done to n afer now whether the Bridge is Worth $4.50 or wha it is Woith. To Council fins bound the City up to any $2,395 for 1�?~ and there h not a single circumstance to justify 1 hut ret. How the coun ii c u d have Leon induced to do such a thing i be Over the understanding of All Ord entry men. Tie office of City Engineer is a creation of the Council. The Man who occupies the office is an appointee of the Council. He i answerable to the Council for his actions. The Council is elected by the poo pie and the members Are answerable to Tho people for their acts end it would do become them now to Point the Finger of sorrow at the Cli y Engineer and cry out a there is the author of our could it have been possible la t tiny member of the Council was interested in having the City build that Bridge pres Dally with not per i if is not the Only badge that the ent conned has been induced to with if it was induced to d 1 y the Preston run att in. It has been Many months ago that it was shaded to pay Stephen g. Clark of Chicago $52,500 for bul Ding a Bridge across the i Arnee River. It up d the full amount in Advance. That is out of the usual order of doing business. Of course every one supposes that the c. L. A bar it. Was hard up for funds at the time and that Cie payment of the $52,500in Advance was a sort of a Good Samaritan aet. If to e Council Cou d Biddie that transaction onto the City Engineer it would be a Good thing. I must either make him the Scapegoat or take up the role itself. I am Wedd d to t in Bucl of tha if Thoro is any blame to rest upon anybody for the Preston run bring Quot the conned so on id a amp a Quot Broad its shoulders and take up Tho Burden.

The school House was Frame and about to ii y Yards North a it he old Tan Verdi owned by Solomon Snider now by his s in a in d r i there was a deep Ravine or Creek that passed through the Tannery Yard where the vats with Green hides were kept till they were t of roughly Snake i with the Tan bark. I he Tannery consisted of a f in a 1 Ull Dong of four goods be i Roo of i think. The boys who worked there were Jovial and extremely Good nit tired and no co canny was More Welcom to their a Worth comfortable rooms on a coi l Winter Day than t tie school boys of which the Haider boys formed a putt Ocean on Illy. The old Tannery was a general Resor for the boys of the or so ibis needed fixing or their coasting sleds re pairing or to pop Corn to carry to school. The school boys were always ready to assist in breaking the bark into the grinder. While one of the smaller ones Rode astride a old fan to keep the Mill moving rapidly while the 15 minute recess lated. There was it ways Alee coasting Down to the run As the Little Creek was known to the school children. There were Springs along the b my on the South Sui Ana during the co d Winter weather the Wner would run Over and free a in Nice Glossy slides Down the Lank Quot Cross to the other Side of the Worpek. I remember once we pressed in o service an old jumper that some one had left near the school Yard it required nearly ail of on Force to get it into the pasture lot. At noon one Day All of the i Roger girls Curie Down to the Hill to be the Quot fun. And n to watching the a big coaster go Down with a Load of he smaller children so ver i times concluded they would take a ride Abo a Cit in was placed in front to s Eer the Craft which if started straight would Tan i Al right. The boys had built a kind of Bunker Hill fort of Snow near the foot of the Hill and it had worn Down so that it was a Noo jump Over toe Hill to the level below and was Fine fun with the Small Coos ers to make a leap of nearly 15 feet find slide a Cross the Creek to the opposite Hill. Well the big coaster was placed in Poston and Ion Ted d own nearly double the usual to id clinging on the run tiers and across b rims. Awty so went whizzing and a i she neared banker Hill we could see tha it w s going too far West in i it was too late to of urge the course but on a runner struck the lit i arid Over she went scattering boys and girls All along the Road and rolling into a he to the balance with t in my Goa to a on top nobody War Hurt Serio isly. So be of the girls lost their tuck Combs and several of the Little ones of both i mein got tired of turning and were b Day scared at East they looked scared with 11 or Dizzie hair and Snow covered backs. A the old school House was the scene of Many into rest no events relative to a of Hood life in those Good old times.

Looking Back Over the Field it appears to me the it the most striking question in sight just now is How the building of Preston run Bridge was shifted onto the City. Home one must h Ive Felt it incumbent upon them to make ready the propos id addition for a medication. If noway should bids for jibe building of a Bridge across Preston run have been received before the mutter came before the co Noii of the City Engineer was responsible Why i say Bounce him but then How would he be. He is not a member of the Council nor is he the owner of the addition in which Columbus Avenue in located. So far As the Bridge is concerned or. Ehrhart says it is a Good solid Structure and is Well Worth the Money that is to e paid for it. Home persons say that All kinds of Oak have been use i in it one councilman says that from the West end to the firs bearing the Bridge is Down six a a �?�hi0vwin huh b6en quite fuck i 0f tbtbdroyrws�?~nkovwrfonr7�e lure reference and some of the teachers proved a themselves with one a t dozen w Ater Beech or Hickory Gads from five to six feet Long.

Cruel singing whips then proceeding to the stove and hold a them Over the fire proceeded to drug them through his hands several times. I could feel the flesh crawl on my b Lek and limbs before the Liast a Hon begin. The Rev. Or.

Wide he was attending a Rock action. After thinking for sometime he struck upon a new punish Menand while passin a me trapped me my then took me by the feet and Drew me up and bumped my head on the floor several Imes and then let me fall. I remember at one time Emery a son of the methodist promo or Resul no at Evansport for Manv years o imbed up in the Garret of the o d school Hou get from Tho Hali Wrev and walked across the j Joice to get a in 11 that h id been tossed up there and by some Means he cracked the i plastering Over he id it was told the no a or Rev. Halters As soon As he returned from dinner. He sit n few minutes Cating his wrathful Eves every now and Tiara at the broke.1 plastering. Then calling Emery out on the floor he called for a Stout Oord or piece of rope which was soon produced a a Emery he said a you May lie face Down award on this Emery refused supposing to was to be tied to the Bench.

The to a Ter then ordered him to be taken to the by a Hoard near the h la where there w As a Large file or Bolt of Iron which held up the Board in place to which Thev Hung him head downward by the rope which secured his fee. It seemed several minutes before they let Blip Daw a after begging for mercy. The whole school was in an uproar while his elder Sisters ran Home scream rag murder. This punishment was upheld by the school bord and the torture of the lift e ones went on for years. But in lu�8e times people thought there was no other Way to keep order my it is my opinion that the old custom of whipping created More disorder and less improvement than our modern methods of government a to be continued.
