(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., March 17. (Special.)
The supreme court reverses the

case brought by Francis J. Burkley
against the City of Omaha in which
he recovered damages because of
grading a certain street, which left
the property of the plaintiff 20 feet
from a cross street and on a "blind
The higlicr court holds that where
part of a street is vacated the gen
eral rule is that ony those property
owners whose property abuts upon the
v vacated part of the street and who
are thus cut off from access to their
property, are entitled to damages on
account of such vacation and the fact
that the property, by reason of the va
cation, is located in. a blind alley or
"cul-de-sac" makes no difference.
