council to place lamps where they thought
they would do the most good.
It Is to be tegretted that such conditions
should prevail in mis age oi progress,
where concentration and systematic ar
rangement predominate In aft branches of
business. It Is to be hoped that the entire
municipal lighting will be placed under one
responsible head, some day, who shall make

As to Burying; Wires.
With reference to the burying of the
wires of tbe New Omaha Thomson-Houston
Electrlo Light company In the business His
trlct. It Is stated that the work baa been
completed. The territory Is bounded by
Eighth, Eighteenth and Howard streets and
Capitol avenue. It Is probable that tbs aro
lights in this district will be placed on ten
foot arms. Jutting out from thirty-foot
poles located at street Intersections, In
stesd ot being swung overhead In the cen
ter ot the crossing as at present. With' re
latlon to this the report says:
The ordinance requiring the placing
under ground of wlrea does not require
underground service connection, but allows
overhead distribution, and maintenance of
poles. Such a system would still retain
the objectionable featurea, and not relieve
ua very materially In the caae of fire; fire
men havine vet to contend with Impedl
ments caused by wires. For this reason
I took It uoon mvaelf to oersuade the
electric light company to waive that part
of the ordinance, and build the system
under ground entirely.
As to placing tbe fire and police alarm
circuit under ground, down town, this Is
urged as ot tba utmost Importance. On
account of placing under ground the wlrea
of the electrlo light company, tba only sup
ports remaining for ths wires will be re
moved from tbe strsets and alleys. Some
of the wires are now under ground, using
some of tba equipment of the Nebraska
Telephone company. This Is unsatls
factory and Incomplete, however.
chean conduit system In connection with
the conduits of ths telephone oompany I
recommended for the present. It will cost
about $4,000. Later, however, a systsm
of permanent subways with additional
servics boxes and thorough equipment
should be put in at a cost of (25,000.
