Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - September 25, 1919, Williamsport, Indiana A a Mattedi per year and Worth Niobe a review leading paper of Warren county nov skies volume t Williamsport in Diana Warren co its to to liars Dat september 25, 1919, xum7�oer 51 i Calls e county in tie building. At Attica of Fly a i�e6te0��es8 is my the present indebtedness of county together with new tax Law made them refuse the commissioners of Warren county met in an adjourned session with the commissioners of Fountain county last saturday at the Central National Bank in Attica. The meeting was called by the commissioners of Fountain county to ask our commissioners to co operate in building a Large new Bridge at Attica the estimated Cost being about $200,000. The Fountain county commissioners made a proposition to pay Warren county $40,000 on the building of the Independence Bridge if Warren would help build the Attica Bridge. Owing to the fact that Fountain county refused to help Warren county build the two Bridges one at Independence and one at Shawnee and also owing to the heavy indebtedness of the county at this time our commissioners refused to assume the heavy Burden proposed and turned the matter Down. It appears to us if Fountain county expected our citizens to help build a Bridge at Attica they should have helped this county when we asked them to help build our Bridges instead of refusing to Aid us. In the face of these facts we wish to congratulate our commissioners on the stand they have taken As we cannot see where we Are under any obligations to help build the Attica Bridge especially when our bonded indebtedness is higher now than it should be at the present time.

This Defeated the improvements for the time being and was considered a great Victory for the demonstrators. There is now much speculation As to who will be Miller s successor. Should it transpire that a new member be selected by the Council to fill the vacancy and the selected should favor going ahead with the improvements another Battle will have to be fought Between those who favor the improvement and those who oppose it. This May leave two councilmen favouring and two opposed to improving at this time and it is Well known that the mayor who has the deciding vote favors the proposed improvements. It is said that the demonstrators Are quietly working to keep the majority they already have both in the Council and on the remonstrance while those who favor the improvements Are doing some effective work to get the Lead in their favor by getting some of the demonstrators to sleep until it was too late.
