WICKHAM TOJUILD SEWER
City Council Lets Contr&ot for West
WILL USE TILE IN WORK
Conncllmen Decide to Day WeWi
Aito Trnck and Ilefttse. Itencrral
of JLrasa to V. A. Smith
for Scale- Bite.
Tho city council at the adjourned meet
ing .yesterday .afternoon "awarded tha
contract for the west end sewer system
to E. A. Wlskham. who was tho lowest
bidder on every Horn in the specifica
tions, with an aggregate bid of'more than
J6.000 lower than his nearest competitor,
tho L&na Construction company of Coun
cil Bluffs, and nearly (9,000 lower than
the H. J. Cathroo firm of Omaha.
The low bid of the Wlckham estimate,
as compared with tho others, was on th
uso of concrete for th9 section of nearly
a mllo from the sewage pumping station
to the river. For this section the Wlck
ham bid Included estimate for the use
of vitrified tllo or vitrified brick. Both
of tha latter estimates ware tha same
and approximated ;2,391.75 mora than the
concrete. The question of the desirability
of 'concrete ""was brought up and It was
shown . that' the percentage of sulphuric
acid contained In all sowaga matter had
a deloterlous eftoct upon tha concrete.
A- Bampla of this destructive powar was
shown by,, a 20 per cent solution of sul-
phurlo acid on seasoned concrete, 'ftMrult-
tng in complete disintegration In a few
days. Tills fact, coupled with tho addi
tional fact that cohcfcto cbuld-rtot be
used In freeslng weathcj,ondxyjld thus
ma.tnrla.llv rfnlnv thlC tfttrti. led the' COUnJ
ell to decide upon, Tth'a uso' bt tlla .and
ordered tho mayor -to sign tha contract
with the thlrty-alx-lnch 'tllo specified. '
Bays Fire Traclr. '
The council also acted quickly when, it
came to buying ah' additional automobile
fire truck for No. 2 flra station. The
choice lay between tho Webb, a duplicate
of the car In use at the central flra sta
tion, and the American La Franca car,
Both bids wera tha same, 15,600, but tha
La Franco company presented an addi
tional offer of 3 per cent discount for
cash. Alderman Stono spoke In favor of
tho La France machine, pointing out that
It had soma superior feature and had
bean standardized for years and that It
was a six-cylinder car and consequently

Tha request of W. A. Smith for a
renewal and extension of his lease for
tho site of tha city scales at tha Junction
of Pearl and South Main stteats was
rejected, and thus the sale of tha scales
nnd the nw brick building to Page. K.
Morrison was defeated. The decision
leaves Mr. Smith In a rather Unfortunate
position. He Is pretty nearly a helpless
cripple, having lost both legs tn a rail
road accident and the long hours and
hard work at tha scales has become too
great for his strength. The pretense for
turning down the request was that a
nuxnbar of citizens desired to have tha
property vacated and tha small flatlrbn
strip converted Into a park. Buoh an
action would causa Smith to lose, prac
tically alt he haa Invested, 13,000. It Is
said that tha park schema haa bean
.started by a fow people who have rival

GREAT ANXIETY CAUSED
BY MOST CRUEL HOAX
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Hammer have been
made tha victims of a cruel hoax that
has caused much annoyance and cost.
Mr. Hammer was called up on tha phone
at his residence by a person claiming to
ba In charge of tha business at one of
the local telegraph offlcea and wsa told
that a message had been received from
Chicago announcing tha dangerous ill
ness of fhelr daughter, Haxel. It pur
ported to come from the daughter's hus
band and urged that Mrs. Hammer atart
at nca for Chicago.
Mrs.' Hammer Is at Oordon, CotO(
where she has spent the summer on a
ranch, and It required several messages
to locate her. Tha purport of tha alleged
Chicago message was given her nnd the
took tha first trAln for th east. Aflef
communicating with his wife Mr. Ham
mer then wired to Chicago nnd received
a quick response, asking for an explana
tion, and stating that tha daughter wus
In the best of health.
Mxplanatory telegrams dUclosed the
hoax. Inquiry nt the telegraph offices
showed that no telegram had been re
ceived from Chicago and rio one nt tbo
telegraph offices hnd Phoned to Mr. Ham
mer. Mrs. Hammer's anxiety was not
relieved until she had reached western
Nebraska yesterday on her wav home.
