It is now over two years since Felch 8t. in theThird ward was rendered impassable by the T. & A. A. R. R. ; and as nothing has ever been done by this company to put this thoroughfare in good order it is high time the council took steps tocompel the directors to make the Street passable. The city of Ann Arbor bas dealt überally with this railroad company, and as long as the council has the po ver to compel a faithful performance of the contract, they should do it. The citi zens of the Third ward naturally feel indiguant, and look to the city fatkers to protect thoir rights. We hope the street comuiittee will do their duty and fight the matter to the bitter end. We have jeen imposed upon long enough by the Ann Arbor and Toledo railroad in this respect.
