Wo think tho law enacted two years

more reasons could present a potltlon
to tho city council with tWo or more
names signed to same, to form a pav
ing district, and compel tho majority
of property owners to go to tho trou

and ours do not agree. They say that
figures do not Ho. Thereforo, wo sub
mit tho following figures: Tho cheap
est paving contract let in the stato for
4919 was in Lincoln at $3.66 per
Bquaro yard. Wo add 10 per cent to
this for North Platto, then figure curb
ing and lead plpo and It figures $866.65
per 66-foot lot. This docs not Include
storm sewer (which you forgot to
mention) neither does it include fill
ing In and othor expense, which wo
OBtimato will bo all told $1000.00 per
06 foot lot, and If this is paid off in
ton yearly payments at 7 por cent each
lot will cost over $1500. These are tho
figures; dlBputo them If you can, and,
If not, then acknowledge that It will
coat top, much to pavo at this time at
tho high post of everything. Wo aro
all neighbors and should bo fair with
oach othor, also considerate for thoso
not as well off as others. Some havo
cars, but perhaps othors who havo not
would Hko ono also. Instead 'of paying
confiscatory prices for paving for the
follow who has thenar to, and not
cost him a cent. If tho paving will
enhance tho valuo of tho property so
much why don t some of you that havo
lots of money buy out tho property on
Fourth Btroet if it is so valuable, wo
will sell out to you, as tho most of us
havo no means of paying for our pav
ing only, in cold cash. With few ex
ceptions, wo all want paving, and will
bo In favor of It when the propor tlmo
comes, but when you present It again
don't camouflage. Give us straight
figures and wo will feel better
about It. Again, why don't you ael
tato a drainage ditch wst of tho city
to carry off tho Hood water that comes
through tho city from Nichols, that
does thousands of dollars worth of
damago to basements and contents
yearly. Bettor do this boforo you talk
jpaving. This can bo done, because
liiui u wuu uuu muru uucu, nun can oe
again. Again, as to other cities pav-
lng, wo all know that Kearney and
Hastings havo lots of paving. Wo also
know that houses In thoso cities do
not bring enough ront to pay tho .p.xes
and upkoop, and If you havo some
thing to trado for city property, Just
put an ad In the Omaha papers for one
Ihsuo and y,ou will got from five to
fifteen answers to samo from Kearney
and Hastings. Wo don't want such
conditions hero do wo Wo will all
bo In favor of thoso things when tho
time comes, but wo don't propose to
let tho fellow that It don't cost a cent
toot his horn for public Improvements
and let tho other follow pay for It.
