NEXT YEAR'S WORK
Asks Council to Buy Crusher and
Dump Truck to Do Jobs for
MAT PAVE CENTER STREET
City Commissioner Jardlne, head
of the department of public improve
ments, has started his 1916 work by
putting through the council a reso
lution directing the city clerk to ad
vertise for a stone crusher and dump
It Is the Intention of Mr. Jardlne
to enter upon a line of city work
heretofore let out to contractors. If
the experiments prove satisfactory
the work will be extended. For one
thing, Mr. Jardlne Intends to know
in a practical way the actual cost of
any kind of work in connection with
paving, sewer and sidewalks.
The crusher and dump truck to be
purchased will be used In working over
old material from ttreots repaved. In the
past the contractors have taken this
material and nothing has been said.
Plenty of t'se for It.
Mr. Jardlne states thut this old ma
terial may be used for making concrete
crosswalks, concrete sewer inlets and for
sewer lining. The city already la making
Its own concrete sewer Inlets for about
one-fourth the cost formerly paid for
iron Inlets made In foundries.
In the case of Military avenue, which
has Just been paved, Mr. Jardlne retained
all of the old material, which he esti
mates Is worth nearly $1,000. Old vitri
fied brick may be crushed and used for
New paving specifications contain, a
clause stipulating that old material shall
be retained by the city.
To Keep Track of Tost.
Next spring Mr. Jardlne expects to
build a short section of sewer and will
keep an exact account of the cost of
material and labor, that he may know
wben a bid Is reasonable or otherwise.
Center street on the west probably
will be paved by the city in the spring,
although proceedings were started for
paving In the usual manner of letting a
contract and assessing the cost back to
the property. If the council will back
Mr. Jardlne on this proposition, the com
missioner Is confident he can put this
street in passable condition at a low
cost by using the organisation and ma
chinery of his department. Doubt has
been expressed whether much of the
property along this street can stand the
assessment which ordinarily would fol
low new paving.
WANT MORE MONEY
Heads Are Asked by Resolution to
Submit Estimates of Needs for
MUCH MORE MOSEY TO ALLOT
Meads of all city departments have
leen directed by resolution to submit
tn the department of accounts and fi
nances estimates for 1916 to be used
by the city council when considering
the 1916 budget. The superinten
dents of police, fire, public Improve
ments, street cleaning; and mainte
nance and parks will ask for the
maximum amounts as fixed by the
Greater Omaha's fund for 1S16 at the
disposal of the city commissioners will be
$2,2Tt,602, the general division being as
follows: General fund. 11,830,000; bond In
terest, $-100,000: bond retirement, $150,000;
for South Side deficit for last five months
of 1915, $122,000; special 8-mlil levy for
motor apparatus and alarm system for
fire department, $66,600; hydrant rentals,
Bond Fundi A I wo.
In addition to the amount raised by tax
ation the commissioners will have $300,000
sewer, $100,000 intersection and $o0,000 park
bond money; also miscellaneous collec
tions. Commissioner Kugel will ask for the
new charter maximum of $220,000, an In
crease of $30,000 over last year. Tho park
fund maximum was raised fnom $"", 000 to
$90,000, which latter amount Mr. Hummel
will Insist be allowed his department The
legislature increased the fire fund from
JJSO.OOO to $W,000, with Increases of pay
for the firemen. The library fund was
Increased from $.W,flo to $.A000 In the
charter amendment passed last winter.
The Job before the city commissioners
will be to apportion the general fund of
$I,JW.XI0 among the various departments.
Health Commissioner Connell wants a
larger appropriation, and so It goes along
the line. The new Recreation board will
ask for $31,000 for the year, and the Wel
fare board. Just starting out, will want a
finger in the pie.
Will Seek New Head
Resident for the
At a meeting of the Social Settlement
board yesterday, Mrs. Philip Potter
Miss T.ura Scott. Mrs. William Shan
non, Mrs. Edgar Scott and Mrs. J. W.
Robblns were selected a committee to
secure a new head resident to succeed
Miss Jessie Arnold. Miss Arnold has
made herself well known as a trained,
capable efficient social worker, and
though she and her board of manage
ment did not always agree on settlement
questions, her opinions and suggestions
were deferred to with great respect. The
board feels that It cannot afford such a
high priced worker.
The settlement is in charge of Miss
Adsms, who will remain until the new
head resident arrives, January 1.
FIREMAN HURT WHEN HE
FALLS OFF THE FIRE TRUCK
John Jankowakl, 2726 South Twenty
fourth street, city fireman, fell off a
fire truck in responding to a rail near
Thirty-first and Jackson streets, and sus
tained severe bruises and lacerations. He
was taken to the Nicholas Senn hospital.

the other day. After placing her order,
he laid a check upon the counter.
"Oh, do you have to have a note, too?"
asked a wee little girl who had been sent
to the store with a note.

a call upon a friend whom the stork had
Just visited. Mrs. F. H. Wray gave a
faithful portrayal of a certain mothcr-ln-law
