The action of the city council in
throwing a cloud over the board of
public works distrusting its ability
and honesty and refusing to grant its
request to open a street that the
council itself ordered opened months
ago has borne fruit.
Col. George Brackenridge has em-
phatically declined to have anything
more to do with the construction of a
railroad to the dam and the follo-ving
communication will be presented to
fie council tonight:
Austin Tex Dec 4 1890.
To his Honor the Mayor and Hoard of
Aldermen of the City of Austin :
Dear Sirs We up to this writing
have no official advice as to what ac-
tion your honorable body took upon
our communication of November 21
1800 in which we agreed to surrender
the franchise granted us of right of
way through the city of Austin for tho
railroad to the dam. We see in The
Austin Statesman of the 4th inst.
that you have appointed a committee
to consult with the Austin business men
to see if one or more of them would not
agree to build the road. This we re-
garded as an acceptance of our terms
of surrender of franchise and that you
wiil and are now looking elsewhere for
its construction. This is final and
ends our connection with this enter-
prise. .We will remove from the streets
the cross ties and iron now obstruct-
ing them as soon as possible.

Agent and Attorney in fact.
This letter it will be observed was
written Thursday and yesterday the
following telegram approving it was
San Antonio Tex. Dec. 5 1890.
To John T. Brackinridge Austin Tex.:
Letters received. I fully approve
your course in every respect. Any-
thing done in the future will be upon
a new basis. '
G. W. Brackenkidge
Indignation had been very great
over the action of the council and
the publication of the above letter and
telegram in the Evening Oapitolian
yesterday helped to intensify it.
In very truth the people of Austin
were never so stirred up and the com
ment made upon the action of the
councilmen whose votes caused the
disaster for such it is were anything
The irritation was hot and in some
instances rose to a towering passion
when the thought Hashed across the
public mind that the action of the
'councilmen could be construed to cast
a reflection upon the ability and hon
esty of the board of public works
composed of men who are distin-
guished for their intellectual qualifi-
cations purity of character and hon-
esty of purpose. While the peo
pie recognize the superior ability
of Alderman Ziller who made the
great discovery that something was
wrong and no doubt are ready to ao
knowledge that his transcendent un-
paragoned genius is as far removed
from the board of public works as is
the sun from the faintest stars they
could not help being amazed dumb
founded and indignant.
What a woeful mistake was made
when Alderman Ziller was left oft' the
board of public works.
Had he been on it all this trouble
would have been avoided the
railroad would have been hum-
ming to the dam and
the site of the great work would have
been a veritable bee hive of industry.
So thought the population as they
gulped down great chunks of indigna-
tion yesterday. t
Members of the board of public
works were seen yesterday and they
were very sore but hopeful.
One of them said the road will un-
doubfcdly be speedily constructed and
no interruption will occur in the prog-
ress of the work on the dam.
He based his remarks upon the
council making an appropriation to-
night which it is reported they will
be asked to do.
As tho matter now stands some
folks take a very gloomy look at the
others do not.
No doubt however the action of
the councilmen who cast the dis-
astrous votes Wednesday night wiil
cost the city thousands of dollars.
This will be apparent when it is un-
derstood that the outside figure of Col.
Brackenridge for trackage if he charged
it would only have been about $-1000.
lie had no idea however of charging
the city a cent as he is more inter-
ested in having the dam constructed
as cheap as possible than any man in

TOLD BY AN. EYEWITNESS.
A Modest Man Who Doe Not Put llliiixelf

"There is a wide and long difference be-
tween the fairs of the present day and the
fairs held when I was n boy." said Patrol-
man Fickle last evening when the Ananias
club was culled to order. "Of course there
have been fairs for thousands of years btit
I mean only Indiana state fairs.
"The first one of that kind was held at
Cambridge City in 1?.30. I was 13 years old
at that timo and exceedingly smart for my
age and I think I can say truthfully t hat
I am the only man In Indiana now living
who attended tliut fair or at leiust the
only ono who has a vivid remembrance of
its every detail. The exposition building
xxupied 1200 acres and was built of brick
partially burned. It wiis seventeen stories
high and had a tower from which out
could see the entire United States.
"This tower however was not built of
brick but was the trunk of a tree. The
tree standing was 700 feet high and shorn
of its limbs and branches left a trunk 500
feet long and 75 feet iu diameter. It was
hollowed out aud iusido was a spiral stair-
case. Landings were made at every tlfty
feet and near each was a window that
was only a pane of glass 10 by 17 feet. On
the tiptop was a platform where tho people
used to stand and watch the earth revolve.
The main building was divided Into apart-
ments the same as our exposition build-
ing is but I believe they had tetter exhib-
its; that is I mean natural products for
we didn't have so many different kinds of
machinery then as we havo now and con-
sequently they were not on exhibition.
"I remember ono year the managers
made a run on pumpki lis and the person
who raised tho biggest ono was to bo sent
to the legislature and have a poem written
about him. A Marion county man captured
the premium. His pumpkin was 50 feet
high 20 feet in diameter and weighed
three tons. 1 don't remember iiis name
now but ho was sent to the legislature just
the same and his pumpkin was brought
to this city and placed on exhibition. It
stood for a number of years where the
Spencer house is located now and a band
of robbers cut a hole in It and used it as a
cave but Capt. Bruce (great-grandfather
of our Capt. Bruce) drove them away. '
"But to return to the fair. As it was tho
only thing of its kind in the west tho at-
tendance was very largo and as it. was held
all tho year around tho managers made a
great deal of money. Tho first train of
cars and the first steamboat were among
the articles exhibited tliero if my memory
serves me true. Such liorseraeing as wc
had! Regular flyers and uo mistake. Why
I have seen horses go so fast that the di-iv
er and sulky would btick straight into the
air. Trotting pacing and running nowa
days ain't nothing. I owned a little brown
niaro that could make a half a milo in half
a minute and not think much of it. Why

evening after working hard at the plowul!
day. Ahorse that couldn't trot a mile a
minuto was barred olf the track as nc
good. e had balloon races too and they
occasioned a great deal of fun.
'"I was in a balloon race myself one day
and the way we split the air and shattered
the clouds into little bits was a caution.
We were sure to win when a fellow who
had a good deal of money bet against us
fired a rifle ball into our balloon. This let
out tho gas and down we went. There
were twenty-three people in the basket and
all were killed except me. I happened to
have on a linen duster and that helped me
out a good deal by catching the wind as I
went down. I think I was pretty lucky to
fall 1300 feet and live to tell about It. The
exposition was held in Cambridge City for
many years and would no doubt bo held
there yet but for the fact that Indianapolis

"In those days there lived in the east
part of the state an old Indian chief .known
as Step-on-IIis-Face. He had a beautiful
daughter called Howling Rainbow who
was .beloved by every one who knew her
I was rather badly gone on the Itainliow
myself but I didn't makcanyparticul-.tr
yell about it. One day Howling Ilaiubow
came to the fair with a young white mat
from Centerville and this made her father
mad because this young white niau on?
had 000 acres of land and hulf a thousand
of horses. So he goes away and puts on
his war paint and stalks haughtily into the
fairgrounds. Howling Rainbow and her
friend were getting into the 'merry-go-round'
when she noticed her father strid-
ing toward them.
" 'Al' she whispered (for 'twas I with
her) 'Al papa has his jag on aud is look-
Ing for trouble.'
'"Well let him look'
" 'You don't know him Al. He ir a
high kicking rooster when he gets started
and iiow if lie says anything to you just
pass it by as if it was a joko'
'"Oh certainly' I laughed. 'I'll just
pulverize him if he gets too funny.'
"Hero our conversation ceased. The
Indian chief with a breath that would free
Ireland was near by us.

'1 am not at all pleased to have you fool
ing around my family. My daughter is a

"'Don't interrupt me me the chief of
all the Indians in this locality. I say that
Howling Rainbow is a chump.'
"That was more than 1 could stand and
casting one fond look at the bronzed maid
en at my side I let drive with my left fist at
her paternal ancestor. I missed him but
struck a corner in the building. The blow
knocked a hole in the wall through which
you could drive a load of hay. The build
ing began to shake and totter.
" It is falling' I screamed to the crowd.
And so it was. Thousands of people would
be killed! ground into atoms!! buried be-
