Mr. Coloman's well known reputation as a bridge engineer caused the public to look with surprise on tho action of the County Commissioners and ;is u result of their action the Journal procured tho services ol ono 'o! tho most dis tioguiabed engineers of the United States, Mr. Frank C. Oabwn of Cleveland, 0., a member of tho loading Engineer A5sociation9 in tho United States and Groat Uritain. Mr. Oiborno procured tho measurements and yesterday submitted his report. That report confirms Mr. Coloman'B figures. Jt8how6 that tbe bridgo is throe foot lion will be considerable, as indicated in Mr. Hydu's report to me. iu proportioning such members an tho joista of tho bridge it is not enough that they should havo the necessary strength, but they should also bo of the proper form to give tho required stillness, and there is quite a (iilToronco in the moaning- of theso two terms. The capacity of these two beams may figure all ripht hut they should have boon considerably deeper in order to have proper stiffness to resist defection. The depth of these beams ie only 1 -;'0 of the span which is croatly (n excess of ordinary pood practice in this particular. In regard to the posts of tho bridge. Tho intermediate vertical ones, as well as tho inclined end posts are all good practice to build highway bridges with a lass factor of safety than ^ and the building of a bridge of this character in such a location with such a small factor of safety Is in my opinion inexcusable. I have not made as complete an «i- amlnation of the details of the structure as I would have done had I not found such weakness in the inclined end posts. The small capacity of these posts together with the defects above mentioned and as outlined in detail In Mr. Hyde's report to mo was enough to justify me in reporting as 1 have. The bridge company accord- Ing to their own stress sheet agreed to construct an 80 lb bridge, Tbe end posts prove capable of sustaining only 2Clb by the usnal rules of computation. I trust that these remarks together with the detailed report of Mr. Hyde will give you all the information you desire and I trust will satisfy you that tbo structure is no great credit to tbe bridge company or to tho commissioners who accepted it.

CI'T Tlllt* OUT. shert. It shows that the shoo pat on to patch out really weakened the bridge by the additional weight. It shows tbat the bridge is only a 20 pound bridge, not an 80 pound bridge as called for nor a 100 pound bridge as reported and as usually considered the lowest safety limit. It shows that the bridge is unsafe and tkat it should at cnce be con. demned. The report Is as follows: MH. eSBOKN'S KEl'OllT. Logansport Journil, Lognnsport, Ind. DEAR SIB:—On receipt of request to make an examination and report on the m«tal bridge recently constructed In your city by the Wrought Iron Bridge Co., Of Canton, Ohio, I sent my assistant to Logansport to make the necessary measurements and examination of the structure Itself. I also wrote the Wrought Iron Bridge Co., asking them to furnish me with the stress sheet and plans, If they were willing to do so. They furnished the Information asked for and the measurements given . on the plans have been compared with the actual measurement of the structure. The principal too long In proportion to their least width. A posts to resist vibration and to have proper stiffness should not be greater in length than 40 times its least width. This is a rule laid down by tbe best specifications and is recognized as good doctrine among all bridge engineers. Some new specifications permit a post to be in length 46 times its least width. Thisprao. lice is, however, exceptional and I ICDOW of no specifications or any authority that will permit a post to be built 60 times as long as it Is wide The center posts in this bridge have this latter ratio. The inclined end poets and also the top lateral struts are all SO times the width in length. The shallow joists and these narrow posts all conduce to excessive vibration which Is not only disagreeable to the people who have to use the bridge, but extremely injuri. ous as wall, to the structure Itself. An examination of the stress sheet of the Wrought Iron Bridge Co., Indicates that the iron tie bars are proportioned for a stress of 15,000 lb per square Inch. This means a factor of 3J if the best grade of wrought Iron has been used or a factor of only a trifle over 8 if ordinary Iron was put In the bridge. It is not considered | Duar Sir:—1 have visltod the site of the Davis Bridge at Logansporl. Ind., and measured up the structure according' to your instructions. On comparing my measurements with the dimensions given on tho stress sheet furn'shed by the Wrought Iron Bridge Co., of Canton, Ohio, 1 find tho long-th of span center to center of end pins to bo \!>T 0" instead of 159' 0" as given on tho stress sheet; a difference of 1' (V' for each span, or a shortage of ;5' 0" in tbe total length of bridge. The si/.es of tbe various members check very closely witl thoso given on the stress sheet. Tbo counters of eF & ?f are 1.16" suunt and the counter 6K u omitted entirely. The mistake in .he length of spaa has been corrected (?) by plufiinsr a bolster under each bhoo. This boisleris made up of one 2T'x l.j" plute and two 6" x 8" xj" ingles U' 0" long OD the abutments and s anchored la the masonry. On the pier tbo bolsters extend clear across. •\s the end posts are provided with iv^ted sboes. tbe load is thrown upon he outer edge when tho bridge de- fljcts and iho tendency is to bring the olo load upon tbe edge of the pier abutment aud to crush the bridge oats. The craok under the northeast hoe of tho south span is good evidence hat such bus been the case at this loint, and that tho provision made is ly no means sufllcienl. If rocker boos and largo stone bridge seats not ess than £' thick bad been used in ad- ition to tho bolsters provided, a much etter result would bavo been ob. ained. But tho bridge should have ieen made tho right length. On examination of the members of ho bridge I (lad the roadn-ay joists to 50 six inch I-beams, which are far too hallow for tho pannel length of 16' They should bo at least 9" deep. t is not sufficient tbat a joist carry a oad; it must do ils work without loo reat a deflection, as this dellection ausca a vibration that is transmitted ^o main members and throughout whole structure. The deflection f tho joists as arranged on Ihe bridge bo 9-10 of an inch under a load of 00 Ibs. per 6(juare foot and 7-16 of an inch under a load of 80 Ibs per square inch. The lloor beams are all right. Taking up the end post Kl, wo have a section made up of ono plate H"x ]" and two channels T"—9.2 Jbs with a total area of 9.2 square inch. The moment of inertia of this section is 78.87; the square of the radius of gyration is 7.975; the oncetricity is 1.46". The length of member being 29.51 feet, the total allowable stress per square inch with a factor of 4 is 7255 Ili-i., considering the member as having- one pin and ono square end. Of this amount 2680 Ibs. per square inch is required for the bending due to eccentric loading, leaving 4575 ths. for tho direct stress. This member is good for a moving load of only 20 ths per square foot of bridge. The depth of the member ia 7" or only 1-50 of its length. The best practice does not permit tho least diameter of a member in compression to be less than 1-40 of Ita length. This member is not only extremely weak, therefore, but faulty in design as well. The ratio of the depth to the length ot the Intermediate poets Dd, Ee, Gg and Hh, is 1-50, and of Ff, 1-60. I understand the Commissioners bought a 100 ib. bridge. The stress sheet calls for but 80 Ibs, while the end post Is good for but 20 Ibs. It is hardly necessary to carry the examination further. A casual glance, however, at the stress sheet shows a stress of about 15,000 Ibs. per square Inch on various iron eye-bars or practically a factor of three for an 80 ib. bridge. A /actor of three may be permissible on building work in some localities or for foot bridges which are not liable to be loaded over all very f re. quently. But such a factor for an important highway bridge subjected to a heavy traffic ae this one is would soarcely be countenanced by any bridge engineer. To sum up: The bridge is too short and the attempt to correct this error ia from a standpoint of safety unsuccessful. An 80 ft. bridge with a factor of three has been provided Instead of a 100 ft. bridge with a factor of -1. oven if it were not weak In detail. The joists are too shallow. The least diameter of all compression members, excepting the first intermediate post, is too small. The end post is weak and faulty in ' .- PILLS j (Tasteless-Effectual.) iBILIOUS'anV'NERVOdS J DISORDERS. ; Such M Sick Headache. Wind c-d Pain in the; Stomich, Giddineu, Fullnett.
