The city attorney will be asked this
afternoon by a committee from the East
Side .Business Men's club, to cause the

of obstructing the public highways,
, This was the unexpected announce
ment made by State Senator Dan Kella
her and George 1. Black, representing
the East Side Business Men's club, this
morning. . On first thought the commit
tee i had almost decided to, seek an. in
junction preventing , the- further , con
struction of the railway bridge 'abut

The business , men 'of the" east side,
however, held a meeting last night and
the committee, on advice of special
counsel, determined to surprise the rail
way forces by proceeding against them
In ah unlooked for direction.
It-was discovered that the corporation
could be attacked with' more hope of
excess by resorting to an old city ordi
nance which forbids the obstruction of
streets or highways. That will be the
charge pressed against the O. R. tt N.
if" the ' city , attorney responds to the
request of the committee. This, method
of procedure - possesses the additional
advantage that it brings the authority
