- Plana for Raising: Tracks.
City Engineer Entyre haa furolshed his
plans relative to raising the grade of the
railroad tracks according to the agreement
recently reached with Engineer Sweatt of
tho Northwestern. The ordinance requires
that the grade on Broadway shall be
changed from the east curb of Eleventh
street to the east curb of Twelfth street.
The city proposes that the railroad tracks
from Nos. 1 to S, Inclusive, across Broad
way shall be raised fifteen inches and the
main fine tracks Nos. 4, I and 6 be raised
similarity, the fall toward the east being
five-tenths of a foot and toward the west
seven-tenths of a foot. Ten Inches under
the surface two gutters will be built to
carry the water from Broadway Into th
The proposed changes In the bridges of
tho Noi'Uiwestern are thus given:
At . First Avenue Grade, -7.S0; lowest
point 'of the bridge, 27.47; raise, .33.
At Twelfth Avenue Grade, 2b.w, lowest
point of bridge, 23. l, raise, 2.M.
At Eleventh Street tirade, 2. 70; lowest
Colnt of west bridge, 27. tn; raise of west
ridge, 130.
At Eleventh Street Grade, 28.70; lowest
point of east brldxe, 27.37; raise, 1.3.1.
These changes, It Is thought, will be suf
ficient to prevent the Hooding of the North
western tracks. The highest point In the
established grade on Broadway is located
160 feet from the east curb of Eleventh
street and 50 from the east curb line of
Twelfth street.
If the proposed ordinance Is passed by the
city council the railroad has signified Us
willingness to begin at once making the
new grade.

Secretary of State Hays Equalisers
AAet I'nder statutes and
Willing? to Stand by It.
Secretary of State Qalusha was in Omaha
Friday attending to official business. Mr.
Galusha will leave In a few days for Port
land to look at the Nebraska exhibit and
other txhlblts and to rest up from his
arduous duties as a member of the state
Board ot Assessment and Equalization.
"Certainly I am glad the work of equal
izing Is over," said Mr. Galusha, "for It Is
a hard Job to satisfy everybody. As a rule
though, the work of the asseaora waa good.
Ws received a number of reports that
county boards had reduced the assessment
made by the assessors and In such cases
It nearly always meant an Increase by th
state board. A number of assessors also
returned the value of th land at th fig
ures at which they valued It last year,
Instead of adding the increase made by the
board last year. This of course took some
time to straighten out and caused us a little
more work. I feel very well satisfied with
the arsessment. I understand the question
has been raised here whether we have the
right to Increaao the value of an Item of
property and that the question may be
settled In court. We, of course, acted
under th statutes and If that Is uncon
stitutional, then th quicker a court de
cision Is secured the better It will be."
