To the Hon-rbIe Mayor and City Council of the
City of Kock islaml:
The undersigned committee appointed
by you to investigate the subject of street
paving would report as follows:
Your committee visited the cities of
Peoria, Blonmingtnn, Chicago, Kansas
City, Omaha, Council Bluffs and Des
Moines; in all of which cities we exam
ined pavements of various kinds and
dates of construction, from which we
select and describo below enough to give
your honorable body a fair specimen of
the different kinds and nges in each of
the above cities.
Jefferson street, paved with white
cedar blocks, plank foundation, layed in
18u3, condition fair, slight depressions
attributable mostly to settling of founda
tion at points where planks joined; with
the repairs that will not cost to exceed
20 cents per yard, will last not less than
six years longer, making the life of this
pavement twelve years. A large traffic
on this street. Hamilton street, south of
Jefferson, paved with Cx4S brick on
sand foundation three inches, three
blocks, same specifications as Blooming
ton paved with the above; west side of
street car tracks Ottawa brick; east side
of street Galesburg brick; luid in 1884
and 1885; cost $1 85 per yard; condition
fair, but edge of brick show wear. Ham
ilton, north of Jtfferson, been down six
years; is several kinds of brick: Bardoff.
Galesburg and Ottawa; corners worn
somewhat and showing dpcided effect of
wear by water in the gutters, which are
Galesburg brick, and wer at points
where horses stood. The Bardoff look
flakey and not court, the Ottawa looking
the best. Franklin street, 4x5x12. Ottas
wa brick, layed in 1887; gravel foundas
tion, one course set on edge in sand 2$
inches. There is considerable traffic on
this street. Someexpress themselves as
well pleased, but considered all streets
paved with brick as exeriment. Number
of blocks laid seven; cost $1 Hit peryard
Again others consider brick the best and
cheapest. Contract let for four miles of
brick this season Capt. Hall, owner of
a street car line, has no faith in brick
laid in Peoria, except the Ottawa brick
on Franklin street.
Found one block of brick west side of
court house that was laid in 1875, Bloom
ington brick. About $100 in all has
been spent for repairs. Foundation
three and a half inches; cinders well
rolled; one and a half inches of sand;
lower course laid flat, upper laid on edge.
Condition fair; will probably soon have
to be relaid; brick 2x4x8 inches. Have
laid in all three and a half miles, and will
lay three miles this season. Have paved
one street each year for the past eicrht
years. Use Bloomington brick altogether;
nave lour brick factories of vitrified
brick. The intersection of E-ist and
Grove street was layed in 1880, bv cutting
aown tne macadam and surfacing with
sand, then one course of brick on edze.
which seems to stand as well as any we
Calumet avenue and Twenty-second
street, paved with cedar blocks, plank
foundation, in 180, interstices well
tamped with coarse gravel; from two to
two and a half gallons of tar used to each
square yard. Found this section in good
condition, with no repairs; will last two
years in its present state. Calumet ave
nue, from Twenty-ninth to Thirty-first
street, paved in 1883 with cedar blocks,
plank foundation. Condition very good;
blocks in good order; some defects where
the foundation bad settled. Light traffic,
but lots of it. Twentieth sixth street.cedar
blocks, plank foundation; laid in 1883;
condition Very good; will nrsd no repairs
for two or three years; crevices between
the blocks filled with coarse gravel well
tamped; two and a half gallons of tar to
each square yard. Twentyssecond street,
from LaSalle to Went worth; fresh filled
before being paved; cedar blocks on plauk
foundation, laid in 1870. Is not in very
good condition, while the blocks are rea
sonably good, considering ten years ser
vice with very heavy traffic; shows that
the principal fault for its present condi
tion lies in the foundation settling.
Eighteenth street, between Wabash and
Indiana avenues, paved in 1878, cedar
blocks on plank foundation; condition
quite badly worn; needs repairs; can be
repaved at a cost not to exceed $1.10 per
yard; heavy traffic. Hoyne avenue.from
Harrison to Congress street; paved in
1879, cedar blocks on plank foundation;
needs some repairs, otherwise condition
not good; depressions mostly in the cedar
blocks, which were probably defective
when put In. Hoyuc avenue, from
Congress to Madison streets, paved in
1878; cedar blocks on plank foundation;
bas been repaired in several large patches;
needs further repair in center of street.
Will last a few years; traffic light.
KANSAS CITT .
Grand avenue paved from Independ
ence street to Ninth street with cypress
blocks, concrete foundation, layed in
1887, slightly uneven owing to careless
ness in laying blocks, heavy traffic; 33
miles cedar pavement layed in the past
eight years, Fifth street from Broadway
to Grand avenue, cedar blocks, concrete
foundation, paved in 1882, no repairs
since it was put down, good for three
years without repairs. Third street from
Grand avenue to Wyandotte, paved with
cedar blocks in 1883, plank foundation,
condition very Rood, traffic very heavy.
Main street from Second to Thirteenth
street, paved with cedar blocks in 1884
on concrete foundation, very heavy
traffic, condition very good. Delaware
from Second to Ninth, cedar blocks n
concrete, down six years, no repairs, con
dition good, traffic very heavy ; Delaware,
1883, cedar on six inches of macadam, in
good repair, two tampiugs of coarse gravel,
then tar two gallons, then sand on top.
We have a sample from one of the cedar
blocks. Mr. M. S. Turstin, assistant
superintendent of streets, thinks they will
get cedar on concrete this year for $1.60
In Omaha the specifications of all wood
pavements call for six inches of concrete,
one inch of sand and six inch blocks
joints well tamped twice with coarse
gravel, then one and one-half to two gal
Ions of tar per square yard, the top dres
sing of fine gravel. From Twentieth
street on Farnum to Thirtieth street
paved with cedar blocks on concrete
foundation layed in 1886. The Gas
Company are taking up a portion near
the gutter line to lay gas pipe and found
the concrete in excellent order, although
they only got about four Inches or con
crete. About two-thirds of the cedar
was unfit to relay, showing that dead
wood had been substituted for live cedar.
The other one-third of the blocks that
were ol live wood were in very good con
dition. The contract called for live cedar.
aix inches of concrete, coarse gravel well
tamped, tar one and ona-half gallons to
the square yard, light coating of fine
gravel well rolled with steam roller.
Found the surface gravel well imbedded
In the wood, thereby aiding its durability.
Leavenworth from Fourteenth to Thirty-
seventh streets (twenty-three blocks) is
cypress blocks laid on six inches of con
crete with one and one-half gallons or
tar tamping in coarse gravel, laid July,
1881; is a very smooth, and in all re
spects, one of the finest looking streets
we saw. Jackson street is cypress
blocks, contract the same, six blocks laid
in 1888, and seems the same as Leaven
worth street. Fifty fifth street, one
block of cypress on concrete, contract the
same, now laying; six men lay one thous
and yards in ten hours. North Sixteenth
street, cedar blocks, laid in 1886; street
car line laying track, found some very
poor blocks, but well Jnyed with coarse
gravel between. North Sixteenth street
in parts is very good. In places this
street shows blocks that are in a very bad
condition, in fact this street Is very much
like Farnum, but not quite so baa. 1 here
is very little signs of tar on the sides of
the blocks, and the tamping coutained
too much sand to let the tar go between
the blocks. At the corner of Sixteenth
and Jackson streets we found them lay
ing cypress, from which we got the sam
ple blocks that we have with us. San
ders street between Patrick and West,
cedar on concrete; two gallons of tar.
October, 1888. We saw a long line of
this street taken up to build street car
tracks and it showed the coarse gravel
that was used for tamping, allowing the
tar to go to the bottom of the blocks,
which is a very good feature. This is a
very fine street in all respects.
Willow avenue from Pearl to Seventh
streets, two blocks paved with brick;
foundation, nye inches of cinders well
rolled and four inches of sand, layed in
1888. About fifteen miles of cedar pave
ment to date against granite and brick.
Broadway from the city to the bridge, a
distance of three and one-half miles, is
cedar blocks on plank layed in 1887, in
very good condition.
RES MOINES, IOWA.
Cvress blocks on North Sixth street to
the city limits, about two miles; contract
let to pave with brick seven blocks; layed
in li88; vitrified native brick are used.
the best grade used for top course; cons
sider it a failure on account of the foun
dation, which is but six inches of sand
and a poor quality of brick. Walnut
street from Second to Ninth street, paved
with cedar on plank in 1881. Blocks
taken up by Gas Company prove to be
sound; over three miles layed in 1881;
no repairs the first eight years; condition
good except along trenches. Several
miles layed of cedar on plank in 1S82,
1883 and 1884. School street to Ninth
street, north on Ninth stree to city
limits, paved with cypress cm plank in
1885; block crevices tamped with
coarse gravel; two and one-half gal
Ions of tar to the square vard:
no repairs in four years, condition gund.
Charles Bennett, city engineer of Des
Moines, says the durability, co mfort and
economy of cedar blocks pavement as
compared with stone or other material.
will last from 10 to 15 years depending
upon quality of material, manner of lays
ing, nature of soil and amount of traffic.
We will say that as to brick that our obser
vation is that a good brick layed on con
crete or some other firm foundation will
make a good and lasting pavement; our
perference based on what we saw is for
Bloomington, Ottawa or Galesburg in
the order as aboved named for uniformity
of size, toughness and general durability;
but our observation in Des Moines and
other places satisfies us that no brick
should be used unless it had been dem
onstrated by use that it has the requsite
qualities tor a durable pavement.
At Bloomington, cost of brick pave
ment $1.65 per yard, specifications called
for two and one. half inches cinders, one
and one half inch of sand one, course of
brick laid flat, one inch of sand, one
course of brick laid on edge. We will
say as to cedar that the large cities seem
to have used cedar t a very much
greater extent than any other material
Chicago, about 330 miles, Council Bluffs
about 23 miles, Des Moines 35
miles, Kansas City about 33 miles,
uraD anoui ub miles. And we
saw in the places we visited that if
laved on concrete or some other solid
foundation, and the blocks used were of
live wood, it made the most pleasant
pavement to drive upon of any and very
durable. As to the sanitary objections
we were unable to find any objectionable
odors from any that we examined, and
we were particularly fortunate in finding
it taken up in many places for the pur
pose of laying water pipe, street car
tracks, &c, which enabled us to make
a very extended examination. Peoria
being the only place that anyone claimed
any objections, to wit: on the score of
COST OF CEDAR.
Cost of cedar in Omaha, 1888. $1.82
bids, 1889, $1.60 on six-inch of concrete.
Chicago cost of cedar in Chicago, $1.35
to $1.40 on macadam. We will say that
as to cypress blocks that our opinon is
that it is a very desirable wood, and al
though no city that we visited has used
it in such a shape as the pample as we
brought from Omaha, a sufficient length
of time to demonstrate its durability,
stui we heard some very practical and
well informed men express unq ualified
faith in it as the coming pavement, for
various reasons, among which is its uni
form quality (there being no danger of
getting any dead cypress.) Msjor Bal
comb, chairman of the board of public
works of Omaha, said that he thought
that (in the form as shown by sample)
it was the coming pavement.
COST OF CYPRESS,
in Omaha, in 1888. $1.80 per yard on
six-inch of concrete; and for 1889, $1.60
bid, on six inches of concrete.
The committee were very freely fur
nished any information that they asked
by the city authorities of each city that
they visited. But we are under particu
lar obligation to City Engineer Whight
man and Mr. Baldwin (editor of the
Journal) of Peoria, City Engineer Bell
and his assistant, of Bloomington, Mr.
George W. Deal, ex superintendent o
streets of Chicago, Mr. C. W. Pearson,
assistant city engineer of Kansas City,
Major Balcomb, chairman of the board
of public works of Omaha, Mayor Rohror
and Alderman Lacy, of Council Bluffs
all of whom took particular pains to
show us any pavements in their respec
tive cities that would give us informa
tion on the subject.
We would recommend that the prop
erty owners in the district, to-wit: On
Second avenue, from Fourteenth street
to Twentieth street, inclusive, be given
until Monday, May 13, 1889, to sign a
petition to this council, staling the kind
of material they wish to have used for
paving. At the end of such time then,
if said property owners, to an extent that
will represent a majority of the front
feet in said district, do not agree as to
what material they would wish, then this
council is to determine the kind of ma
terial to be used for such pavement.
Our reason for recommending the
above is that we find that it is the plan
adopted by Omaha, Kansas City and
other progressive cities, and that it
seems to work well with them.

Agony is Conned
By persons who, attacked by a mild form
of rheumatism, neglect to seek prompt
relief. Subsequent torture is prevented
hy an immediate resort to llostcttcr's
Stomach Bitters. Slight exposure, an
occasional draught, will beget this pain
ful raalai y, where there is a predisposi
tion to H in the blood. It is not ditliciilt
to arrest the trouble at the outset, but
well nigh impossible to eradicate it when
matured. No evidence in relation to this
superb blood depurent is more positive
than that which establishes its efficacy as
a preventive and remedy for rheumatism.
Not only is it thorough, but safe, which
the vegetable and mineral poisons, often
taken as curatives of the disease, sre not.
Besides expelling the rheumatic virus
from the system, it overcomes fever and
ague, biliousness, constipation and dys
pepsia. Judge Joachimsen, of San Francisco,
has decided that the broomstick is not a
deadly weapon. Perhaps the judj:e is not
a married man.
In the pursuit of the gooi things of
' his world we anticipate too much; we
eat out tlie heart and sweetness of world
ly pleasures by delightful forethought of
them. The results obtained from the use
of Dr. Joies' Red Clover Tonic far exceed
all claim.'. It cures dyspepsia, and all
stomach, liver, kidney and bladder
troubles. It is a perfect tonic, appetizer',
blood pmifler, a sure cure for ague and

That extreme tired feeling which Is so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable In tlie
spring months, is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dysiepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
ot Hood's Sarsaparilla with any other blood
purifier in the market tor purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
" I had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. 1 had tried several
kinds of medicine without lieiiefit. r.nt as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and 1 never was so well."

spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
