The work of the Daily Argus iu calling attenton to the tlanger of reüll road grade crossings, is beginning to bear fruit. Supervisor Emanuel Schneider appeared before the council last evening and called atteniton to the dangerous Ami Arbor railroad crossing on W. Washington st. Both he and Titus F. Hïitzel had had many ïiarrow escapes. The railroad corapany should be obliged to constantly keep a ■vatchman at this crossing. Aid. Koch called attention to the condition of the crossing of W. Jefferson and S. Ashley sts. at the Ann Arbor railroad depot. There should be an electric light placed there by the city. A lot of loafers hang around the baggage room, inaking it unpleasant for passers-by. A petition signed by 28 property owners was read asking that the Anu Arbor railroad grade of W. Huron st. be separated froin the street. Aid. Koch moved that the petition be referred to a special committee of flve. Passed. The followiug were appointed: Aid. Koch, Coon, Stevens, Dieterle and Bliton. This action of the council will really place the whole qiiestion in the I hands of the committee to consider it in all its phases.
