Tlio 1'nvliiR Question Dlsousscd by
Mr. llctuU.
HOSTON , Mass. , March ! . [ To the Edi
tor. ] I have watched the Omaha chess
board moves closely during my absence
through ils four dally papers , weeklies
mid letters from niyoflico and others
The paving question scorns to ho the
nil-absorbing topic in Omaha , at present ,
nnd fooling that everyone at all Inter
ested In Omaha's welfare should add
tliclr mite in endeavoring to solve the
Very Important problem , I ventured to
interview to-day Boston's City Engineer
Jackson , Assistant Cheney and Struol Su
perintendent Morton , all very nlco gen
tlemen and thoroughly posted after their
fifteen to twenty years experience.
Boston lias a population of about half a
million , and has about one hundred and
twenty-five miles of paving , about two-
. thirds of which is granite blocks and one-
third cobhlo stones The cobble stone
era ended scores of years ago , all now
jmving for years being granite blocks
from Quincy and Kockford. The blocks
measure four by eight and four by twelve
inches nnd eight inches in thickness. So
you see Uoston stands by and favors
granite. Tlio average price laid In six
inches of sand is if 2. 50 to $3.00 per square
All nro prejudiced ( like myself nnd nil
sensible men not interested in the con
tracts for laying them ) against wood
pavements , excepting wlioro wealthy city
corporal ions , say like London , are will
ing and can renew them every three or
four ycnrd. Columbus avenue in this city
was paved about twelve years ago with
eovoral ditloront kinds ol wooden nave-
incuts dill'erent kind in each block to
give a thorough tost. All of them de
cayed and were removed inside of from
two to four years , and all were well laid.
The kinds of wood used were spruce ,
pine and chestnut the last named being
the most durable. The chestnut was laid
in round blocks and that oven was useless -
loss after ono year's wear , the upper ends
wearing conical , points upwards , of
coin-bo , and no ono could or would drive
over it. All were patented and prepared
in every conceivable way of wood preserving -
serving processes , but as the experience
of those gentlemen go to prove , "there
is no way of successfully preserving or
laving wooden pavements. '
In Devonshire street , two years ago ,
Borne 800 foot of spruce block wore laid
four inches wide , eight inches long and
eight inches thick on the concrete
foundation of six inches , ( prepared for
compressed asphalt block which were
found useless oltor ono years' trial ) . The
sprtico blocks have lusted but two years
and must now be removed , having worn
down from eight inches in thickness to
from one and a half to three inches they
were prepared by a zinc process anil
joints were filled with pebbles nnd pitch ,
nnd the laying was a thoroughly good
job in every respect , and as Air. Morton
eavs."Talk . : aljout the lasting qualities ot
wood , it is all gammon. " lie says no
wood is as durable as chestnut they used
Bprucn because it is plentiful and is used
for that reason mostly , same as cedar
. blocks are in the west. Their expori'
cnccs go to prove it very objectionable
on sanitary grounds , being such an ab-
Borbant of liquids and always lilthy and
Boston has five or six miles of Barbour
nsphalt pavement , Columbus avenue ,
when the wooden pavements were taken
lip , was rolaid with asphalt by the
Grahamito & Trinidad Co. , which was
not a success. And after two years the
Harbour company rolaid it again ( live
years ago ) upon the concrete foundation ,
put down by the G. & T. Co. , which was
too level not pitch enough to it to al
low the water and moisture to run oil' ,
nnd on that account , is in bad condition
to-day. Mr. Morton says that genuine
Trinidad asphalt is an excellent material ,
but the success and wear depends en
tirely in the handling and perfect and
thorough manner of laying the material
Jn Court Square , five years ago , the
Uarbour company laid asphalt pareinent
V'lioro it has a very heavy and constant
wear by heavy express travel and that
has proved a great success , Every team
in passing over thin pavement necessarily
runs with the wheels of ono side of their
wagon over a row of granite blocks next
toitho curb-stones , ana the wheels on the
other side of the wagons run over the
_ nsj [ > lialt pavome.nt and aftnr , Jive years
"constant use the nsphalt shows litflo if
nny uppeciablo wear , while the granite
blocks nayu worn oil several inches , and
* yet Boston favors granite every time.
Mr , Morton says ono objection to asphalt
is that it is slippery in ley wonther and
horses cnmiol got' fool-liold ; also says
that it must Imvo grade enough to pro-
Tent moisture Mantling upon it or it will
BOOH decay.
Mr , Chitno.y , assistant city engineer ,
Kays that in iidin over some of Louis-
vlllo's , ( Ky. , ) wood pavements , after two
years' UM > , came near having all of his
- "tooth shaken out of his head. I. too , hail
the same experience in El/.abcth ! , N. ' J . ,
nnd in Chicago and other places. In

been an important factor , nnd will con-

Tlio great danger attending a city that
has grown otlt of its village clot lies In a
few years and become n point of com
mercial and linanoial importance is the
tendency to become pulled np in its own
greatness to such a degree that the idea
is carried that the place is made and that
nothing can over unmake it. This nils-
take has been fatal to more than one
largo town. It was this vaunted idea
that caused Lcavcnworth , Kan. , to have
ten thousand less inhabitants now than
at the close of the war. At that tlmo she
was the largest city west of Chicago and
St. Louis , doing an immense jobbinsr
trade , supplying llio territory west of her
to the mountains and into Utah and Mon
tana. In fact she was dead sure that no
power on earth could make her have a
back-sot. So sure was she in this with
her 85,000 people , with her wholesale
houses , some of them carrying stocks
double of that of llko houses in this city
to-day , that when the question of bridg
ing tlio Missouri came up anl : she was
asked lo lend a helping hand , she swelled
up like a big snake at a Itsh monger's
funeral and said that they were a city ,
they were , and that they had made them
selves the metropolitan place they were
by tlioir own exertion , and that now they
had got to that point , that if anyone
wanted to come to them by bridge or
otherwise , there was no string to them ;
Ihov could como ; if they preferred n
bridge they could build it : that they ( tlio
great city of Leavenworth ) was located
and was there to stay , etc. Everyone
knows tlio result.
I cite this case which is only ono of
many in the history of our country be
cause I have heard the same argument
used in this city regarding enterprises of
different characters coming here , and
during a residence of thirteen , years in
onr sister city , "over the river , " 1 heard
the same talk until I was completely and
' " . "
ell'octually "fatigued.
This is not written as an alarmist re
garding tlio future of Omaha. Wo are
rapidly growing in population , but most
of tliis increase are consumers , and a
largo population of consumers is not a
healthy growth unless a suiliciont amount
of producers are furnished to create an
\Vo cannot depend altogether on our
wholesale trade for the future upbuilding
of the city. Already thorp are wholesale
points of no small magnitude getting in
back of and to the right and loft of us , to
which points , through unjust discrimina
tion , goods are laid down at Omaha
There is a littlocityup the river Sioux
City that is liable to become no small
rival of us. A bridge at that point and
she would do the business of northern
Nebraska. Nebraska City is packing as
many or more hogs than Omaha. A gro
cery house 'at Fremont does as largo a
business as any excepting perhaps one-
house in Oinnna.
The country is developing fast. Oma
ha is in the van , and by "keoping her eye
on the gun" she will stay there , but she
should have moro manufactories , she
needs a direct road to the north and
northwest , and she needs it badly ono
that would be an Omaha interest. It
seems to ino that these should bo the key
note of the energy of the board of trade
and our citizens. M. A.
Keith County School Imruls.
OGALLALA , Neb. , March 5 , [ To the
Editor. ] The sale and leasing of the
Keith county school lands which has been
going on hero for several days , has been
completed , the results being very satis
factory to the commissioner and to those
who have heretofore invested in Keith
county soil.
Tlio highest prize realized was § 12.50
per aero , the average on all land sold
being $9.
A good portion of the land was not
sold , but leased at 0 per cent on the ap
praised value , which varied from 51.50 to
1J1.50 per aero. In ninny eases a bonus saw
paid for the privilege of leasing , said
bonus running all the way from $100 to
ijyOO per section.
The results as outlined above prove
conclusively that the former lease of these
lands at 0 per cent on an appraisement
of from 40 to 75 cents was , lo say the
least , a phenomenally poor stroke of
business on the part of the old board.
It is a pity that these gentlemen , who
have shown a great deal of shrewd busi
ness enterprise in their own private af-
tairs , would not have brought some of it
into play when conducting ; the business
of the Mute.
The fact that under the first lease the
school fund would havit lost fionio eight
or nine thousand dollars per annum ,
which would have gone into the pockets
of certain favored speculators , will tum
ble many per.sojis to roach conclusions
which the presentation of ( silver pitoher.s
among the honorable inomhcrs of the
board will not altogether dissipate. The
price for which the school land was sold
proves that farming in Keith county is
not an empty dream , During my stay in
the county I saw no one who was not en
thusiastic in pralso of llio climate and
eoil.Since the lirst of 1'obimiry plowing has

The Talmnno Postofllco.
TAI.MAOR , Neb. , March C. [ To the
Editor. ] Under the heading , "Two Post-
offices , "an article appeared in the Biu :
of the -1th hist. , which is in part incor
rect. But the most important part is
false :
First That there has been hard feeling
between the old postmaster and the now
one , is incorrect as far as it applies to the
old postmaster. Bord persisted in
refusing to take the postollico fixtures ,
thereby departing from a custom as old
as the government itself. I well know
that this was duo to the promptings of
certain political fanatics , who have had
the old man in training for a long time ,
and who wisli to injure mo financially ,
because of my opposition to the saloons
of our town.
Second That the old postmaster had
persistently fought to retain the otlico is
also incorrect.
But-if ho had said that Steolo's friends
had tought to retain him , and that said
friends were democrats of the best moral
standing in the communitv. and they had
made their demands UDoifone J. Sterling
Morton , and that J. Sterling Mor
ton had made indirect promises to
said friends , sulHcicnt to induce the old
postmaster to msvko the purchase of now
ollicc furniture which was greatly
needed , then ho would have approached
to soniothing near the truth.
Third That Bord thrust his papers in
my face and demanded my retreat is
false , as 1 have never yet seen his papers ,
but upon my demanding his papers ho
refused , saying ho did not have to. My
reply was that I thought ho did , and for
that reason I hold the fort.
Fourth As for my being frightened
and turning deathly pale , 1 have not a
word to say , leaving it to others who have
met Mr. Spanglcr to try and explain the
strange phenomena. 1 can only say that
upon his parting former company , and
coming into my presence- his vision may
have been .somewhat blurred from the
fact that he had .suddenly appeared before
a man who could lay claim to being at
least half white and free born.
In conclusion T would say in justice to
Mr. Spanglcr that ho treated mo very
respectfully , and it is my belief that ho
was wrongly informed. Respectfully ,

PtATTSMOUTir , March 0. [ To the Edi
tor. ] I see the papers state that ono
Newell , ox-county treasurer of Cass
county , was in Omaha a few days ago ,
and represented that there was no Van
Wyek clubs in Cass county and none
wanted , and that Cass did not go much
on Van Wyck.
Mr. Newell is very much mistaken in
ills calculation that none is wanted. Van
Wyck has hosts of friends in Cass county ,
and you will find that no man will bo sent ,
to the legislature from Cass this fall who
will not pledge himself to support Van
Wyck , first , last and all the time.
Mr. Newell is ono of the old-time ma
nipulators of the "ring" in Cass county ,
and manipulated in such a way as to get
himself elected for two terms as county
treasurer ( and ho made a very good one ) ,
and ho is now engaged in buying anil
shipping grain here. Ho is supposed to
bo the recipient of many favors from the
railroads and of course ho has no svmpa-
thy with Van Wyok , as his masters , the
ring and the railroads ( whoso collar
Newell wears around his neck , ) both despise -
spiso Van Wyok , and when they say to
Newell "Bark at Van \Vvck , " Newell
must bark. Ho would not bo trim to his
friends if he did not. Newell is not the
man to go back on his friends.
But Air. Nnwi'll and the "ring11 and ( ho
railroads will find that there are a great
many intelligent voters in Cass county ,
who don't wear brass , collars and who
know enough to protect their own inter
ests by their votes. This class of mon in
Cass county has watched Van Wyck's
course and hnvu Feen that it lias boon
bold and fearless and right , and in hir- |
many with the host interests of the whole
country and the whole peoplo. They \vill
sue that ho is not retired and a ringnter
and monopolist put in his place.
men are not given to barking , but they
are thinkers , and when the time conies
they will donoilt their thoughts in tlio
ballot box. They will bo in the shnpo of
votes for Van Wyok , and all the barking
of ringstors and railroad cappers will not
change them. The farmers of Cuas
county are intelligent and understand
their rights , and know their friend ! ) .
Were it left to a vote of the farmers of
Cass county to-day Van Wyok would got
three to ono of all the republican votes of
Cass county and a largo majority of the
democrats. A VOTEU OF CASS-

For some time a fooling of dissatisfac
tion has prevailed among the beef butch
ers employed at Geo. II. Hammond
& Co.'s packing liouso , nt South Omaha ,
which has culminated in a strike. The
men gave it out several days ago that
they would not go to work Monday un
less their demands wore granted. H. II.
Meday , superintendent of the packing
house , was not Inclined to grant their de
mands nnd accordingly the foreman of
the beef packing department was sent to
Kansas City to engage another ganp ; of
mon. Yosterdav the men arrived , but af-
or learning the situationthoy nlso ro-
iised to go lo work , A representative of
THE Bun learning of tlio trouble nnd
expressing a destro to meet the
men "was led to B. Strath-
mann'ri saloon whore they wore nil as-
fiOmblcd , both the South Omaha and the
Kansas City men. The source of the
trouble ns given by the striking butchers
was as follows ! In the lirst place , " said
one , ilnd his statements were corrobo
rated by the others , "when wo came hero
wo wore led to believe that wo would bo
paid Chicago prices , which is ? t per day
for the kind ot work wo are. doing. More
over , wo were to have stcadj * work nt
our trado. In all of this wo were disap
pointed. Wo were only paid $18 a WCCK
to start on ; some time ago two mon wore
raised to $20 , and last week another man
was raised to ? 1.0. The remainder of the
gang were refused f 20 and kept' down to
$18. Again wo were disappointed in not
receiving steady work nt our trade. On
days when there was no butchering to bo
done wo were required to shako hides
and do the work of common laborers , a
thing that is never required in other
packing houses. "
"You can sco for yourself , " continued
the speaker , "that a butcher whoso
hands are frequently covered with cuts is
not in a lit condition to handle salt and
hides. Besides , oven made no other
dilVeronce , wo were not hired to do that
kind of work. In Chicago a beef butcher
is not required to oven report at the house
when there are no cattle to kill , and his
pay goes on the snino nt $1 per day. If
you euro to make comparisons you wilt
iind that wo have been compelled to
slaughter and dress more cattle per day
in proportion to our number than is
usual in packing houses. G. II. Hammond
mend has sent out this man Meday to
superintend tlio business , who lias no
knowledge of the dressed beef business
and who never saw a bullock dressed
until he came hero , llo is trying to play
smash now and gain favor with his em
ployer by kcopingdownexpenses , though
robbing us.
"What wo have struck for , " resumed
the speaker , "is for $1 per day , tlio same
ns other packing houses arc paying. Wo
only want what wo are entitled to and
nothing moro. "
The men who came up from Kansas
City wore interviewed and tiio reasons
learned for their refusal to go to work.
"I was promised , " said Dick Edwards ,
the leader of the Kansas City gang , " $5
per day to como hero and was assured
positively that there was no strike hero
but that they had discharged , a lot of
drunkards. "
When Mr. Edwards arnycd hero and
learned of the state of allairs lie refused
to go to work and the other mon agreed
with him. Dispatches have been sent to
the Knights of Labor in Chicago and Kan
sas City which will prevent others from
coming here. The strikers are very quiet
but arc determined to have their rights
recognized and they will be upheld by
the public in general. If the Knights pf
Labor take the matter in hand they will ,
bo able to bring the packing house to
terms by refusing to haul their cars of
dressed beef. The company were load
ing out the dressed beef on hand yester
day afternoon as rapidly as possible , and
they may anticipate such a move. The
butchers' trade is no "soft snap , " and
the men ought to bo paid for their work.
