An Onmlin Merchant on Paving ,
The snap game of the Board of Public
Works in conjunction with n ring of
Union Pacific ofllciala to override the expressed -
pressed wishes of our citizens on the
paving question has excited great lind
general indignation in Omaha , especially
among property owners on street * whicl
have been ordered paved by the city
council. Thojntention of the city charter
to leave the choice of paving materinlflto
tlioso most intorcsted is HO well under
stood that the attempt on the part of the
board of public works to force an objec
tionable material upon our people in spite
of their refusal to endorse it meoU witli
widespread disapproval. As long ago as
April (1th ( a majority of thu property
owners on Eleventh , Twelfth , Thirteenth ,
Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets ,
sent in their petitions to the
city council for asphalt pavements and
Ilarnoy street noon followedsuit. Later
it was discovered that under the new
interpretation of tlio laWj the consent of
lot owners on intersecting streets to a
depth of I'M foot would bo required to
make tlio petitions strictly formal , and
on this ground the city council throw
out all the positions and ordered thu
board of public -works to advertise
for bids for materials. No ono
supposed that this was done with
any other view than to secure lower bids
on tlio material asked for by the property
owners , and the city attorney expressed
himself as believing that their recom
mendation would bo accepted by both tlio
board and city council when the question
came before them for final settlement.
Hut the wishes of the property owners
have been entirely ignored in plain de
fiance of the intention of the city
charter , and the hoard of public
works has boon used on a machine tn
register the corrupt scheme of a gang oi
stone sharks who congregate in the Un
ion Pacific headquarters.
To show the class of citi/.eim whose
names are on petitions for sheet asphalt
in the paving districts and who have re
fused to endorse thu scant )

To the Editor of the Hrrild !
DBAII Sin Four ycnrs ago 1 called
your nttuntion to n pavement they wore
laying in front of this hotel , and naid ,
that is tlio kind of "pavement wo want in
Onmha. Thin was tlio aiphnltum block ,
and tlio first tinio I had neon it. I liavo
novcr had an opportunity to look at the
pavement again , till now , and 1. am
happy to say that my opinion as to the
excellence of this pavement is quito con
firmed. It is much superior to stone
and only inferior to ulieot aiphaltum.
Wherever this block asphaltum had a
good foundation it is exactly the Ramo aa
when you and I saw it laid. When the
foundation was bad the block Rank , and
the wheels of the heavy stages and wag
ons constantly falling in crushed the
blocks gradually to pieces. They had
not paid suflicicnt attention to the foun
dation , but laid it in the usual way in
TliOi rest of Fifth av < ! iiuo for over two
miles is laid with the same foundation ,
but laid with stone , and the cotiseqtiunco
is that it has fallen in holes all over the
street from ono end to the other. Tlio
stones jiavo lost their shAjio and square
edges and have become- quito round and
slippery , till they are no better than cob-
bio stones , and it is absolutely painful U >
any lover of a horao to see the poor ani
mals stumbling and staggering over it.
Onposito the Brnnswick thertjis a piece
of that asphaltum in perfect order , and
it is quito a pleasure to see how easily
and noiselessly the horses draw their
loads over it. The piece in front of the
Fifth avenue , laid alx > ut thirteen years
ngo , is not in perfect order , having , worn
in some placcs into gentle hollows and
undulations , none of them , however ,
more than ono inch deep , and they cause
no inconvenience , aa the carriages roll
easily and gently over it and it could bo
repaired at the most trifling expense.
Ihit the stone jiavoment will have to bo
entirely reset , atid unless they can turn
the stones upside down they will require
entirely now stones , as being worn round
on the top they are useless except for the
very poorest kind of pavement.
I asked a good many of the hackmon
regarding the pavement of the avenue ,
and they all agreed that it was as bad as
it could be , and no wonder. About 7
o'clock this evening I counted fifty-nino
vehicles pass over the asphalt in five min
utes , or over seven hundred an hour , and
that not the busiest time of the day. So
it is no wonder that stones have worn
round in about six years , the time it was
laid. The wonder is that the sheet asphalt
has scarcely worn at all in thirteen.
The hackmcn tell mo that their horses ,
It after three or four years' service , are use
less , their legs being knocked all out of
shape and their feet to pieces , slipping
and stumbling over stone pavements.
There is no doubt that a stone pavement
is nol suited to a horse at all and the
very worst thing it over put its foot on.
And the ( inly reason men put such pave
ments in cities was ignorance ; they know
no better. You may ask why does the
city government hero keep putting down
so much fitono. There are seine excel
lent reasons. ' Ono is that stone is got
right at their doors , across the river at
the Palisades. They do not need to
bring it three hundred miles. Another is
that the city government is not the best
in the world and they don't do everything -
thing in the best way , but generally the
worst , and still another is that they say
there is more money in stone contracts
especially when every separate street can
bo a separate contract.
Last fall when the contractor was lay.
ing the asphaltum in front of our store
ono of the members of the board-of pub
lic works said tome , "But for you I would
have vetoed this pavement , and I do not
think it would have boon laid. " I said
"Do you moan to say that you hold me
responsible for that pavement ? " Ho said
"Yes , I do. " I answered , "Then I ac
cept that responsibility and only hope
you will remember who was responsible
when successful , and I wish to say now
after a most careful examination of the
dilFuront pavements in Chicago , llostoi
and New York , that I accept the responsi
bility and stakemy reputation that thii
is the very best pavement known at tin
present timo.
If wo go on as wo are doing and liavi
all the streets paved like Douglas , we
will have the most beautiful city in tlu
now northwest , and n model for ovorj
western town. None of the other towm
have taken this matter as a whole , s (
that wo will bo alone and unique , ant
that is what every smart man and oven
smart people wants , and our citizens wil
bo able to point with'prido to streets tha
for usefulness , cleanliness and beaut ]
will bo the envy of the great cities of tin
cast. I will only add that the intonsi
importance of this subject is my enl ;
excuse for taking up so much of you
valuable space , N. B. FALCONER.
Omaha HemM.
Mr. Falconer writes from Now Yorl
upon the subject of the asphalt block am
other pavements in Now York in n wa ;
that will bo interesting and instructive ti
our readers. The explanation of tin
condition in which three years' han
pounding finds the block in fron
of the Windsor hotel is unquestionably
accounted for a foundation. Qraniti
itaolf fails when laid in this way
nk Sheet asphalt , in our opinion , is ono o
I'r the best pavements for man and boas
in the world , unless it bo tlio asphal
uk block , for cities like Omaha , in point o
comfort and economy , and stone is undoubtedly
doubtodly the worst. Durability refer
to dollars when applied to stone , and t <
nothing else. Wo believe there is muni
beside dollars to bo sought for in tin
pavement of cities , and asphalt , to on
mind , properly laid , fills the requiromen
better than any other material , unless i
would bo the block , which stands tin
lackotso well in front of the Windsor.

The Mayor Issnes anOrder Closing
All the Banks ,
He la Carrying Out Ills' Policy to
thojLetter. .
Mayor Chase upon his third election as
chief executive of this city laid down his
policy in his inaugural address and has
oinco adhered strictly to it. Among
other things was a declaration of war
against the gamblers and prostitutes , and ,
oa the public know , the latter have beer
driven out of their accustomed quarters
to seek refuge in nioro respectable local !
Yesterday afternoon , about U o'clock
the mayor handed the city marshal ;
written order to cloao up all gambling
houses , accompanying fy with the em
phatic statement , "I mean business !
This is business 1"
The marshal notified Captain Jack
O'Donohoe , who went around and gave
notice to all the keepers of houses to
close. There was not a particle of re
sistance to the order , and last night it
was obeyed to the letter by all hands.
AVhat the true inwardness of the now
deal is , is not generally known , but there
is an impression among souio that a game
of freeze-out is being played in the inter
ests of a now house about to bo started
on Farnam street. This is no doubt a
false idea , ns the facto show that the
mayor has intended to make this [ move
for some time past. ,
Like all other radical reforms it will
doubtless bo short-lived.
Never Give Up.
