It was responsible for the freakish
work of nature, and that the contrac

In sending In bids. ' -
The claim was set op that th atreet
committee bad viewed the damage
and agreed that they must be re
paired. The street committee admit
ted that it had viewed the damage at
tbe reqoest of the contractors and had
agreed that the repairs' mast be made
at once; but the committee bucked
when an effort was mad to put th
responsibility" for th payment on
them; said that the admission that
the work needed immediate attention
did hot signify that they had agreed
to pay for it
