One of the most interesting ad

to the visitors, was that given by

very clever repartee on the part of
Harry W. Smith, who spoke on "Son"
and his son, Harold L. Smith, who
had the subject of "Father," and the
clever and affectionate jibes made by
the speakers, kept everyone in the
best of humor during the course of

its capacity and even the temple of
justice of Judge Archer was filled
justice of Judge
by those who came to hear and a
number to express their sentiments
as to whether or not there should
be a ohange in the form of Main
street and the construction of a
storm sewer system to care for the
flood waters.
Briefly it may be stated that the
sentiment of the majority of the
property owners on Main street was
decidedly against any change that
might tend to lessen the carrying ca
pacity of the street In time of emer
gency such as have occurred in the
past fifteen years.
As the prelude to the sewering
proposition the American Legion
post presented a petition asking that
they be allowed permission to hold
a carnival on the city grounds on
Washington avenue, the members to
6ee that the lots were cleaned up
and the -proper police protection giv
en. As the council was called in ses
sion for a specific purpose they
could not take action, and it "was laid
over until the next regular meeting.
Mayor C. A. Johnson in his usual
frank and fair manner stated that
It was the desire of the council to
hear the expression of all of the
property owners as to what they
thought of the sewer as suggested
by the engineers, Bruce & Group,
as a part of the iplans for improv
ing Main street. " .
. Mr. John A. Bruce w-as present
and stated that he did not care to
discuss the matter only in the ans
wering of questions that might be
asked as to the plans, as he was not
urging the proposition; that was
wholly for the people of the city to
decide upon. Mr. Bruce, in reply to
a question of Mr. John Sattler, stat
ed that the district did not include
the entire city but the larger por
tion thereof r.nd especially those lo
calities that had any benefit from
the district of which was drained
by the sewers. The "blanket cost to
the whole district would be J4.80 per
lot ibut this would probably pro-rate
as the matter of benefit was placed
by the council. The total cost as es
timated would be $18,229 and this
would also lessen the cost of the pav
ing by taking up twelve feet of pav
ing as the crown of the sewer.
Attorney D. O. Dwyer was the Jlrst
to he called upon and stated that he
had not teen familiar with the prop
osition but as a whole did not fa
vor the changing of the contour of
the street and that nothing should
be done that might in anyway en
danger of the safety of the business
section of the city. Later Mr. Dwy
er offered the additional suggestion
that small conduits might be con
structed that would carry off the
surface water that so often remains
on the street. As the resident streets
are paved the -water reaches Main
street more rapidly and therefore a
greater capacity would be needed.
Engineer Frank T. Darrow of the
Burlington, who was in the city in
regard to the extension of the sew
erage system of the Burlington in
their yards was present, and when
called upon gave a short resume ef
his observations on the sewer. He
had, he stated, been the person who
had recommended the lowering of
Main street in 1908 as a measure
of protection and that while It had
been unsightly it had served the pur
pose. If a street was desired that
would be passible at all times, then
of necessity a change must be made
in the contour of the street and in
the placing of additional sewers.
One of the most important matters
of the sewer was the intakes and
these should be as large as possible
and extend as far out from the main
section eo as to take up the first
rush of flood water. As to the pav
ing the present was the must dur
able that could be found but it was
not always a question of durability.
Mr. Bruce stated that the four
foot side sewers with the lowered
lines of the street at the curbs would
increase the carrying capacity of the
street from ten to fifteen per cent
and that the inlets would do away
with the crest of water at Sixth and
Main streets.
E. J. Weyrich asked as to the in
lets that were proposed of fifteen
feet long and one foot high, becom
ing clogged up and forcing the wa
ter onto the street which being high
er in the center would allow the wa
ter to get into the places of busi
ness of the city. Mr. Bruce stated
that on the suggestion of Mr. Darrow j
they nad decided to remove bars
from the inlets and that this would j
allow anything aside from very large
objects clogging: up the the intake, j
the aUeyv and also near tee inter-
section of 6th and' Vine streets.
R. A. Bates stated that as a prop
erty owner he favored any public
improvement but desired above all
else that the 'safety of the property
on Main street be considered in tak
ing up the proposition. He did not
think the inlets on i-ixtn street sui
fficient and thought there ought to
be some on Main street as v.-ell. He
did not want anyoce to suffer loiss
and thought it would be better to
be on the safe side rather than be
E. A. Wurl, who has been a suf
ferer from a great many of the floods
before the lowerinr of Main street,
was decidedly -doubtful as to the
practical purposes ,of the inlets as
those in the vicinity of his home had
been clogged up at every high wa
ter and In a very ifew minutes after
the storm had occurred. He wa?
against anything that might lessen
the safety of those residing aad own
ing property on Main street.
E. H. Wescott wus another of the
heavy sufferers froni the high waters
to be heard and made au earnest p'ea
tfor safety first, at all costs. He was
in favor of any public improvement
but-was fearful of the possibilities
that might lurk in a change of the
street, and in fact thought that its
capacity should be Increased if any
thing. A sewer to carry the water
must have enormous capacity as lie
Relieved that there would sometimes
te a heavier rain than any we have
had so far and which would cost a
great deal to the praporty owners if
any changes were in the street.
Mr. Wescott was firm in the convic
tion that the further increase in the
water carrying capacity of the street
v.-es absolutely necessary;- He' stated
he was ready for anything that
might help the city but wanted to
have safety first in the way of pro
tection ifrom floods.
Philip Thierolf was also strong
for being sure of the safety of the
property on Main street and while
ready for the paving thought that
the safety of the property siould he
considered. Mr. Thierof pointed out
the ifact that the street as construct
ed at present carried the water and
there was no assurance of the sew
ers being able to- do the business.
H. A. Schneider was also in the
ranks of those who opposed the sew
erage system on Main street and at
this time when economy w;is the
watchword and then to expend $20,
000 for a fewer that was io an ex
tent problematic. Mr. Schneider
thought that the paving should be
lowered to give greater volume to
the water and that the inlets when
plugged in a great rain with branch-:
es of trees or other debris would
make it impossible to prevent a
A. J. Trilety and E. C. Harris
were both on the side of safety first
and experiments afterwards and Mr.
Trilety detailed accounts of the de
bris that had been placed in creeks
and which would clog up any inlet
that might be put in. Mr. Harris
thought that the interests at stake
should be protected to the utmost.
The first favorable word for the
sewer came from L. C. Sharp, who
stated that he had made his position
clear in the articles he has had in
the newspaper and thought that the
city could rely on the judgment of
the engineers who were looking af
ter the job.
John V. Hatt was in favor of pav
ing at once -but favored leaving the
street as it is as far as the contour
Is concerned and in this position he
was joined iby Carl Kunsroan, who
was opposed in every way to the
sewer and stated that he had lived
in the city long enough to know
that no sewer could carry the vol
ume of water that flowed in times
of heavy rains.
L. B. Egenberger stated he had
lived in his property on Main street
for the past twenty-five years and
did not believe that any sewer could
carry the water that flowed.
William M. Barclay made one oi
his ringing speeches on the proposi
tion and urged the paving of the
street and also the lowering of the
present grade and he did not believe
f,rom his observations that the
amount of water that swept down
the streets in flood time could be
held in a sewer.
Fred T. Ramge was also against
the sewer, believing that it wa
wholly inadequate to the needs of
the city.
C C. Wescott stated that he was
in favor of protection and also want
ed as sightly a street as possible. If
it was repaved he thought it should
be made as well appearing as it could
be and at the present time it was
j far from sightly. He thought the e
gineers ought to be able to devise a
sewer that would be ample to carry,
the water. i
W. A. Swatek thought that with j
the cars parked in the streets there
even with a lowered, street and to
overcome this he thought the under
Furface system of handling the only
one practical.
C. A. Kawls stated that no cne
could dispiae the figures cf the en
gineers and that i!ie main proposi
tion seemed to i)e, not s mutii the
currying capacity of the sewers as
the getting of the water" linto the
sewer through the intakes. He sug
gested placing them out as far as
possible to catch the water before
it reached Main street. The present
appearance of Main street was not
attractive and he certainly would
like tc se-2 feme change made.
Mr. Darrow then told the city
council and the citizens of the con
dition that had confronted the res
idents at Lincoln in regard to the
flooding o: 12th and O streets and
the manner in which it had been
eolved by the placing of large in
letj at the corners and also at some
distance from the section that over
flowed and the result had been very
Mayor Johnson then asked the
members of the council to express
their opinion of the sewer proposi
tion. Councilman Bestor thought a
sewer the only means of solving the
matter of flood when cars were
parked on the street but thought it
should be looked into carefully.
Councilman Schulhof thought that
the street should be placed in the
proper shape.
Councilman Ptacek stated that the
sentiment of the property owners
seemed to be against the sewering
of Main street but he thought that
the judgment of the engineers ought
to be good and the street fixed up
Councilman Knorr was of the
opinion that the street ought to be
made more sightly altao the senti
ment of the property owners was
against it, and he desired something
that would meet with the approval
of those most vitally interested.
Councilman McCarthy . thought
that if the proper inlets could be
made to convey the water to the
sewer it would result in a much bet
ter street and that the advice of the
engineers should be taken.
Councilman Howe stated that the
meeting was called to get the expres
sion of the property owners and as
they were decidedly against the sew
er proposition, he thought their
wishes should prevail in the matter.
Councilman Lindeman stated that
he had seen a number of the floods
and rheught that-' -ifll aiu street wai.
to be repaved that it. should be plac
ed in condition where it could be
crossed and made more .sightly.
Councilman Brittain in his state
ment pointed out the fact that the
majority of those most vitally inter
ested were against the sewer and he
did not believe in forcing .ans'thing
on the community that was not
wanted and therefore he thought
their wishes should prevail.
Councilman Sebatka was also of
the opinion that the matter of in
lets was one of great importance and
did not think that under certain
conditions that anything could hold
the fjood water. . .
Councilman Mauer thought ' the
ptrect should te beautified and made
as attractive as possible in case of
repaving and if the proposed sewers
were not large enough, make them
to that they would carry all the wa
ter that might possibly flow as the
result of the heaviest rains.
The mayor then asked for further
expressions and called on former
Mayor John P. Settler, who, how
ever, stated he had come to talk
about the placing of the lines for
the electrolier system as a represen
tative of the Municipal Ownership
League and would come later when
the council should be in a position
to do something on the matter.
One of the discussions was the
cutting down of the width of the
sidewalks and making the street six
feet wider which would give addi
tional carrying capacity. Mr. Bruce
stated that lowering the street more
and then crowning would give add
ed carrying capacity and that it
could be arranged with approaches
that would care for the intersections
and sidewalk approaches.
The countjl on motion of Council
man Bestor then decided to refer the
matter back to the engineers for
their consideration and to report at
the meeting of the council on Mon
day evening, April 10th, when the

The final details of the placing of
an extensive system of concrete sewer
in the Burlington shop yards in this
city were completed yesterday when
Engineer Frank T. Darrow made a
visit to the city and looked over the
situation as regards the placing of
the sewers. The new lines will be
auxiliary to the present system and
will double the water carrying ca
pacity at the Fhops where frequent
heavy rains have caused more or
less trouble In the way of wa'hlng
mud and debris into the yards.
The work will be let by contract
