The Principal Matter Transacted
"Was That All Private Sewerage
"Will Be Taken Under City's
From Tuesday's Daily.
The session of the city council last
evening took up a number of matters
of interest at their session and the
discussion of the city affairs covered
a wide range of subjects. Council
man Mauzy was not present at the
meeting as he is still at Hastings
where his wife is recovering from an
auto accident while Councilman Pat
terson was absent at the convention
of the American Bankers association
in Kansas City.
Mayor Sattler brought before the
council the fact that Officer William
Wilson had been brought home from
the hospital where he had been re
covering from the effects of the in
juries he received in the head from
being beat up while in the discharge
of his duties, and that he thought the
insurance company with which the
city is insured under the liability act,
le notified to take the matter of hos
pital fee and nurse hire up and pay
the same. On motion of Luschinsky,
seconded by Weaver, the city clerk
was instructed to go ahead and notify
the insurance company as to the status
ff the case.
The report of Fire Chief A. F.
iSraun was then read in which he
recommended the purchase of 300 feet
of additional tire hose for the use of
the department and on motion the
mayor and city clerk were authorized
to order the hose.
Chairman Bestor of the streets, al
leys and bridges onimitte reported
that forty-eight feet of storm sewer
had been completed on Washington
avenue by J. II. McMaken for the sum
f S2C ..", which included for ex
cavating, base and the construction
of the sewer itself. The work had
been approved by the inspector and
on motion the amount as prayed for
Mr. Bestor on behalf of his commit
tee reported that they had investi
gated the petition of the drainage on
Walnut street and Tenth and found
on investigation that it would be best
to have the drainage run down Tenth
stieet to Washington avenue instead
of as it is at present.
Mayor Sattler did not think the
change of the drainage of the water
from its present course to that of
Tenth street would be beneficial and
would be an act that would do the
property along Tenth street a great
dal of injury and thought that their
complaint against the proposed change
had been well made.
Councilman Johnson added his
voice against changing the drainage
of the flood water and he thought the
work would make necessary the plac
ing of several blocks of tiling to pre
vent damage to property and this he
did not favor in the least.
Councilman Bestor stated that the
streets, alleys and bridges committee
had looked over the ground and did
not find where there was any con
siderable drainage of water and at
the culverts the grass was growing,
indicating that the water had not
came through there in any volume
and that they thought that in order
to aid in the improvement of that sec
tion of the city the committee looked
favorably on the petition as they
thought the change would be the best
thinir under the circumstances to do.
Councilman Buttery who lives on
Tenth street in the district affected
by the proposed change in drainage
stated that the reason that the water
did not run through the tiling more
freelv was due to the fact that the
road had been graded so as to be flat
imd the water ran off of the roadway
in.-tead of through the tilinjr. Water
had ran this way for a long time and
he did not think the change a good one
On the motion to make the change
in drainage from Walnut street to
Tenth as was recommended by the
committee was defeated. Bajeck and
Bestor voting aye; Buttery and John
son. no; and Weaver, Luschinsky,
Shea and Harris passing.
In regard to the sidewalk near the
(lass residence on Vine street Mr.
Bestor stated that the property ojvner
had notified them that they were not
in a position to put in the walk at
once, and on motion it was decided
to have the street commissioner go
ahead and raise the walk in the proper
shape for the use of the public.
In regard to the condition of Smith
Avenue near the Ben Hyde property
Mr. Bestor stated that some work
was very l. auly needed as the roadway
was i;i ha 1 shape and it woi'Jd require
considerable expenditure of money
the committee did not feel that they
should order the work but left the
matter in the hands of the members
of the council. The committee how
ever was of the opinion that the work
certainly was needed.
The matter of securing a rattler
for the test of brick for the Washing
ton avenue sewer which was left to
the streets, alleys and bridges com
mittee at the last meeting was re
ported by Mr. Bestor giving the cost
of several rattlers ranging from $250
to $400 as well as many of the facts
concerning their use as possible and
the streets, alleys and bridges com
mittee asked that the members of the
council express themselves on the sub
ject and decide just what they wanted
in repaid to the rattler.
In regard to the rattler, Mayor Sat
tler was of the opinion that the city
could not at this time afford to pay
the price asked for a rattler but it
was necessary to have a test made of
the brick used in the paving. On mo
tion of Johnson, the matter was re
ferred to the streets, alleys and
bridges committee again to secure a
rattler if they thought best or have
the brick shipped to Omaha for test
The grading on north Eleventh
street asked for by Henry McMaken
was held up by the committee until
other property owners in the block
could be interviewed to learn whether
or not they would lay walks and per
mit the city to finish their grading
in the whole block at once and save
the city the extra expense.
Councilman Sheasecured the pass
age of a motion to have the street
committioner do as much as possible
on Smith avenue to make it passable
and serviceable for the winter season.
The fire and water committee which
had been dealing with the proposition
of the city taking over the private
owned sewers reported their investi
gation found that there were 12,000
feet of private sewers in the city and
gave the law on the subject of the
city taking over the control of the
sewers and with the recommendation
that there be districts created in the
different sections of the city to care
for the sewer proposition.
On motion of Mr. Luschinsky the
report was adopted and the services
of an engineer secured to locate the
sewers which will be placed under
Councilman Bestor asked that the
street commissioner ;e instructed to
make a trip over the city and inspect
the arious allevs which were in bad
hape and to see that all rubbish and
debris as removed as soon as pos
sible by the property owners. Mr.
?estor also asked that the city attor
ney notify the Missouri Pacific rail
road to nut in a pavement adjoining
their property and. to join into the
one that is being put in by the city
on Washington avenue.
Councilman Luschinsky compliment
ed Street Commissioner Mike Lutz on
the work that had been carried out
on avenue A, where a concrete cross
ing had been manufactured and put
down by the city under the direction
of Mr. Lutz. Mr. Luschinsky stated
that the 'work was excellent and
proved most satisfactory.
