Tunnels and Viaducts Across the
Alley Between the Jones Buildings.

The council last night passed an ordinance giving permission to the Jones Dry Goods Company to erect viaducts over and tunnels beneath the alley to give access to their block of buildings bounded by Main, Walnut, Twelfth and Thirteenth streets. In the lower house Alderman Bulger wanted the ordinance sent to a committee, but Alderman Groves and Hartman, practiced builders, attested to the plans and specifications for the viaducts and tunnels and the house concurred in the estimates.
