Expedite the Lawsuit.
By doclalvo majority Uio voters o(
Omaha have decided they prefer to
try out in court tho clnltn of tho city
that It has a right to reduce the price
of gas under tho present franchiso
rather than maku a settlement that
would give tho desired reduction at
onco In oxchange for franchiso ox
tension, that being the verdict, tho
city and its legal representatives
should proceod nt onco to expedite
the lawsuit, which at best can hardly
bo brought to n conclusion for a year
or two, and perhaps longer.
Incidentally, tho public should bo
reminded that this lawsuit involves
two separato and distinct proposi
tions (first), whether tho
schedulo embodied in the existing
franchiso. with ovor five years yet to
run, is. binding upon the city tho
same as other parts ot the agree
ment, and (second), whether tho
proposed 1 price is reasonable and
compensatory to the company.
To the layman, it would seem that
tho first question could and should
bo decided by itself, becauso if de
cided adverse to tho city, tho second
question does not arlso. But accord
ing to the accepted legal procedure,
so tho lawyors tell us, all tho issues
must bo tried together. With in

OMAHA, Aug. 20,-To tho Editor ot Tlie
Bee: It Is a well known fact that In the
city of Omaha original government
mounds and monuments have heen ohlit- 1
eratcd by time nnd destroyed. It Is well
known among real, estate men and civil '
engineers that it is quite difficult tor that
reason to ascertain the boundary lines ot
lots and tracts of lands, especially ln the
older part ot the city. It Is well known,
also, that much carelessness has pre
vailed In the past In tho surveys for
streets, curbing and pavement, partly be- J
cause of an absence ot well defined and
recognized monuments and starting points
for surveying, and partly because en
gineers and surveyors will assume for
themselves different starting points at
being correct, or nearly so, and espe
cially as being convenient. It Is well
known that at numerous places street
curbing and pavement has been negli
gently and carelessly placed, and It has
become so customary that little cure at
tends such Improvement. Frequently
street lines are wholly disregarded. At
various places three to five feet are
added to a man's property on the wt
side and taken from the person's prop
erty on the other side.
I am informed that much more care ts
taken ln the survey of the property md
streets in other cities, as a rule, than In
Omaha. If persons Interested ln the rav
ing and curbing of the street adjacent' tn
their property would definitely ascertain
how tho curbing Is placed with reference
to the-property line, it would frequently
help them to understand what Is meant
by these suggestions without taking a
general survey ot the city.
Now,' this condition should not exist,
at least should not continue to exist. An
effort was made a few years ago to hive
a commission appointed to ascertain nnd
establish monuments for futuro qurvnya
but that was not done. It can be done
