Chlokerlng Hall was comfortably filled with a sympa- thetlo audience, who been me enthusiastic when the performance rose above the level of neatness and accuracy for which tho Club Is famous—and this occurred more than once during the evening. Of the same club's appearance at Memphis, Tenn , the "Appeal" uaid: The third In the seiies of the concerts of the Wagner Club was given last night before the elite of the concert-going public, who evidenced their appreciation in loud and continued applause of the first number by the New York Philharmonic Club. This club, the first among ensemble or ganlzatlons In the United Slates, renewed their acquaintance with the Memphis public by a perceptible Improvement In unison.

Mr. Coleman Is a bridge engineer of considerable experience and la now living at Cleveland, O. He was employed by t&e C&88 County Comtnle- stonorB to examine the Davis bridge. His report which was made a few days ago IB SB follows: MK. COLEMAN'SRKl'ORT. LoGANsroiiT, Ind., Jnnuary 24, '94. Totue Honorable Board of Commi.silonem or Cass oouiuf, lud. GKNTLKMKN—In accordaace with the request of your honorably body, the writer would eay that he has examined the "Davis bridge" and respectfully submits the following report: The spans are 157} feet long (and not 169 feet long an shown- on plan), 25 feet high and 17 feet anil 2 Inches wide, center to center. The roadway Is 16 feet. For a load of 100 pounds per square foot or 1,600 pounds per foot run, the stiain in the end post 1* 92,000 pounds closely. The allowable strain per square inch for Iron la 5 200 pounds, requiring an area of 17.60 square Inches, or, if the pout IB Iron, showing a deficiency or rather more than 100 per cent. on that basis. Supposing the post to be built ot Bteel. adding 20 per cent, to the above 5,280 pounds, making It 6240 pounds, and dividing 92,009 pounds by this, we flnd that the required area IB 14 70 square Inches, or a deficiency of about 71 per cent, on this basis. Or putting the matter on tho usual ba»ta, if the bridge is built of Iron, Its actual capacity Is about .'J5 pounds, and If of steel, about 45 pounds per square foot or floor surface. Some portions, but not many, are up to the 100-pounds leading, but the strength of the bridge is determined by the strength of tho weaker parts. If the bridge falls, through the failure of one of the weak members, the strong parts are of no advantage. One beirlng on the center pier Is In bad shape, as the spans are too short. The plates and angles placed under the bearings are an Improvement but but will not stand much bending. All things considered, I would hardly oall 40 pounds a safe load to put on the bridge, but 1 give this as an opinion and not as a fact, as it is hardly possible to tell exactly what the plates and masonry will or will net | stand, in their present condition. It certainly detracts from the strength, permanence and safety of the-bridge not to have a fair bearing on the mv. aonry I am, gentian-ion, very respectfully youia, HARRY F. COLEMAN. ThU report was not what the Commissioners wanted and another engineer wa» employed who brought in the report published last week. Mr. Coleman was asked yesterday by a Journal man concerning the action of tho Commissioners: '•I was employed by the Commli- sionors," said Mr. Coleman, "to inspect the Davis bridge and report to them what It would safely ca'ry. I made as favorable a report ad I consistently could. I was not aware at the time that I wa« expected to pronounce a eulogy on the structure, regardless of the facts, or I should have declined to examine it. I measured it carefully with steel tape and calipers, and reported It exactly as I found it. As It is still there any one who llkei can de the same. Several minor alterations have been made and the bridge 4s shorter by three feet than it should be. Quoting from the report of the "Engineers" published in the Journal of Feb. 25, they say that they find the strain in the end post to be 82 600 pounds. Taking Into consideration the long and short panels at opposite ends of the truss." This is exactly true, a» near ai I can figure it, for one end of the truss, but taking Into consideration the long and short panels If they will figure the other end of the truss they will find the strain to be about 10,000 pounds greater than this. In other words they have apparently figured the end of the bridge on which the least stralm comes, Instead of the end on which the greatest strain comes >o« account of the long md short panels." In their report they oall the tquare of the radius of the end port 10. As a matter of fact it Is 1\, and a reference to standard works by best brldga engineers wlllskow that this Is true. These quantities are pub- llihed in the form of tables, and any one who cares to look at them can easily do so. Assuming the strain of 82 6«0 pounds to be correct and that It IB allowable to add 3SJ per cent to the formula printed in the bridge company's specifications there Is still, even on this basis, & deficiency of over 40 per cent of metal In the end post In regard to the matter of Iron and Bteel I will say that after the metal is painted, it is impossible to tell rolled steel from rolled Iron. It requires a break or fracture in the body of the metal to enable any one to tell which Is which with certainty. It does not require an engineer to stand on the bridge and feel every piece In It shake aod vibrate when a single empty team passes over It, or to see that the shoes are in the edge of the coping, and that the coping li, at one point at least, badly cracked already. As far as building light bridges IP concerned I have built some about as light as anybody would care to have them when so ordered but thlB one "raises me out of tae game." It Is flgurad lighter than structural work in roofs and buildings U usually figured. Probably I have made a mintako In examining the bridge at all. but thla Is the only mistake I have made. I could not accept money for professional per. vices and make a report essentially different from tho one I did mate. Comparatively the actual strength < f the bridge Is a little more than one- fourth that of tho Cicott stroe' bridge built by the King Bridge Jo. of Cleveland, and probubly somewhere In the neighborhood of one-third of the strength of the bridge at the south end of Third street built bv the Dotroit Bridge and Iron Works of Detroit, Michigan. The best time to employ an engineer U before the plans are accepted (and not after the bridge IB in place) and then employ a good man and pay him what his services are worth. By doing this the county will get better work and more for its money FOB TUKA9DKBR. 1 will be ft candidate for Tmnanrar of the city of I.ouansport, subjoct to the will of tun Kepnbll can City Nominating Convention.
