Mr. Browuiiig bah brought Iwfore me
three or four credible wituesses who stuttd
that from the tune tbe sewer was first laid
tho lamp h lie was never properly covered
but was always above tbe surface with a
loose cap wbicu was frequently on. -uy
pluvious opinion was based upon the t-tate-ineut
ot au assistant engineer that the lamp
hole was properly covered at the lime tbe
aewer was accented Nov. b, lbUo1. Tbe acci
dent occurred Nov. 11, ISM. If tbe court
and jury should believe the testimony of
Mr, Jollier's witnesses, it would appear
that the lamp hole was lu au unsafe con
dition at the time the sewer was accepted
and that that acceptance and the inspec
tion which hi have accompanied it

of the defect Iu this view of of tbe case
think it would be wiser to settle with Mr.
Jobler if it can be douu upon terms which
stem reabonuble to tbe commute .
