Omaha Spends Over
Million for New
Sidewalks in 1913
Omaha property owners spent $1,338,-
310.63 for new sidewalks during tho year
1913, according to tho report of City En
gineer Watson Townscnd, filed with
Commissioner Thomas Mcdovrrn of the
department of publla Improvements. This
Is a record-breaking achievement in side
"City commissioners did not order all
theso sidewalks built,'' said Mr. Town
send. "Property owners constructed a
largo porcentago of them without orders
from the council. Altogether, 13.61 miles
of new sidewalks were laid."
Of tho 13.61 miles of walks built 11.41
miles were constructed by tho property
owners themselves ,tho city building only
2.17 miles. Tho cost of all tho sldowalks
Is charged to abutting property.
Most of tho sidewalks laid wcro four
feet wide, although tho width ranged
from four feet In tho rcsldenco section
to twenty feet In the business part of tho
city. The four-foot sidewalks cover 43,0)0
square feet of space.
Charge Against Girl
Hazel Bnzwell, a strikingly pretty
20-year-old girl living at S16 South Six
teenth street, was arrested last night

lodged by A. L. Havens, 2133 South Thirty-third
street, W. H. Smells. 2133 South

Havens home. Sho is also said to have

etc, to the place by tctcphono order and t
was detected when Havens had "central"
watch his calls.
Tho young woman denied the charge,
but was turned over to Probation Officer
Mdgy Bernstein to bo sont homo to her
relatives In Iowa, after a trial In police
court. Ten Irate persons who had been
sent to tho Havens homo by (ho fake
'phono orders testified In court.
CAUGHT AFTER COMBAT
The superiority of a policeman's night
stick over a sabre as a weapon cf of
fenso was effectively demonstrated Inst
night by Officer W. R. Wilson In over
coming a bunglesomo burglar caught In
tho homo of Mrs. Nellie Toggi, 1019 South
Tenth street Wilson took one swipe at
tho Intruder with his hickory and landed
on his opponent's arm. Tho sword clut
tered to the floor and a ndo to head
quarters in the patrol foil wed.
Mrs. Toggs heard a nolso last night and
investigating saw a man In his bare feet
ransacking tho place. She called the po- j
lice and Officer Wilson responded. As
the woman was opening the door, the
burglar sprang upon her and tried to
keep her from her purpose. Wilson, how
ever, did not wait on the front porch,
but executed a flank movement and
caught him from the rear.
Tho Intruder said he was Emit Lecht
wark of Chicago, but had been living at
the Volunteers' lodging house since com
ing to Omaha. Police Judge Foster
bound him over to the district court un
der 11,000 bond on tho chargo of burglary.
