It ia nimorfd that Lincoln contractor
will rtqupst the attorney general ot lb
tiita to Institute a stale-wide Invest!--tlon
Into the method of tbe so-called
paving rotnblnea, paying particular atten
tion to the hrlrk paving Mork monopoly.
Kxposurrs of a ereosoted wood block
combine between the KetUa River and
Itrpublla companies at Minneapolis,
named Omaha and South Omaha as points
of operation. A. C, Morrison was con
nected with one of these companies and
related the methods of the two corpora
tions In their attempt to squelch compe
tition. Mr. Morrison had spent several
months In Omaha prior to the creation of
creosoted wood block paving district. This
fact and others led to an Investigation,
which the city council haa now assumed
and will examine witnesses January 4.
Following the Morrison expose several
citlca throughout the country started In
vestigations, among them Lincoln. Al
though no creoeoted wood block paving
had been laid there, It was found that an
Ironclad monopoly existed on brick pav
Favors Thorough I'robe.
Councilman KugeU chairman of the
council committee on paving, says that
since there Is to be an Investigation Into
the letting of paving contracts In Omaha,
he favors a thorough probe. Including
examination Into the methods of all con
tractors who have laid brick, asphalt or
ereosoted wood block. Ite also believes
"It would do no harm" If test measure
ments were made of the bases constructed
by several contractors. There have been
Instances In the past where payment was
made for a baae supposed to be up to
specifications, but on examination was
found to be three and one-quarter Inches
thick In the thlcxeat place, and dwindled
from that to nothing. The specifications
rail for a baae not lesa than five Inches
Rare Baae la Good.
Charles K. Fanning eays none of the
pavement he haa laid rente on lesa than
a five-inch bane, but thlnka a few meas
ures taken at random on some of the
streets might prove that other contractors
who have been underbidding him and ex
pecting to "make profits on a cheap
grade of work" have not conformed to
specifications, directing his attack at
one competitor, Mr. Fanning says that,
figuring from every vantage point of his
competitor, the material alone would cost
as much as the bid and a profit was
absolutely out ot the question.
This base Is built of crushed stone, sand
and cement, or Iron slugs. Mr, Fanning
secured the waste scrap iron from the
Jocal foundry and used this on several
streets near the foundry, but said It was
too expensive to haul to remote districts.
Hugh Murphy, contractor, has been using
crushed stone, shipped from his own
