At a rate which averages about two miles a week, the sidewalks of Topeka are being condemned, and this appar ently with an utter disregard of locality or traffic upon them. When Sidewalk Inspector C. I). Bruss man made his return to Street Commis sioner D. C. Naylor last night, it shpwed that 515 notices of condemnation had been served. Each of these notices con demns from one to six or more lots. It is believed that three lots to each notice is a fair average. These 575 notices represent only that portion oi lope&a south of the river and west of Jefferson street. Parkdale and North Topeka have not yet been visited Dy inspector iirussman. By the time he has made his rounds in these districts. jur. xxayior says ne wouia not be sur prised if the total number of notices ex ceeded 800. Think of it! Eight hundred notices, or 2,400 lots, or 60,000 feet, or over 11 miles of side walk condemned, which must be rebuilt at a cost (last year) of iu.uo per lot number for a six-foot walk, or in all an expenditure exceeding $ 24,000. We can't afford to spend more than $100 repairing the asphalt pave ment Dut we can spend $24,000 for side walks. Eleven 3filea of It. 1. opeka has the misfortune to be spread over a great deal more territory than the needs of the city demand, but even supposing that all the "heights" and "additions" within the city limits were thicniy settled, it is unreasonable to imagine that there is need of this indis criminate condemning of 11 miles of side walks of 1 opeka s iio miles of streets. The law provides that after a sidewalk has been condemned, a new one must be built by the owner or it will be done by the city and charged to the owner's tax account. The law declares that these walks shall be "permanent." which means brick, stone or asphalt Brick is used by the city contractor and is the most general among those who choose to build their own walks. This is very- well to provide for permanent walks in the heart of the city, but it is the heicrht of folly to Duild a vast expanse of expen sive Dricu: sidewalk in the suburbs where travel is almost nothing. Ale re's Sample Of It. There is one place in the Martin & Den nis addition where a brick sidewalk two blocks in leagth along vacant lots has been built to accommodate one famiiv. Street Commissioner Naylor is familiar with this case. Not only the Fifth ward but all of the other wards have many such cases, where a substantial wooden Bide walk would be just as desirable for many years to come, auu mueii cheaper. Another great obstacle in the way of laying "permanent" brick sidewalks arises in the matter of grades. When a new sidewalk is laid it is put down to the permanent grade of the street, which is frequently eighteen inches or more above or below the street and crossing level. The city intends to grade the streets down to that given level, some time, probably in about twenty years. The result is a sidewalk useful more for irrigation purposes than traffic; a long caual-like hole that fills with water at every rain, and with dirt and weeds the rest of the time. It must be raised either to the level of the street, thus incurring additional expense, or remain so until the street is put to grade. Had to Dijr Them Up Again. Already this season Street Commis sioner Naylor has raised a number of brick sidewalks from the technical grade to the practical street grade. A notice able job of this sort has been done at the corner of Ninth and Fillmore streets, along the courts of the West End tennis club, where the walk was eighteen inches lower than the street. There are many other cases where the brick sidewalks should be restored to grade, noticeably at Eighth and Van Bu ren streets; at Huntoon street and Tope ka avenue along the old Ryan property, and on the east side of Topeka avenue between Eleventh and Twelfth streets. The 000 sidewalks that Inspector Brusaman has already condemned is bad enough, and from now on he should con demn only those walk3 that are beyond repair, and in localities where traffic de mands a permanent sidewalk. A great many complaints are made to Street Commissioner Naylor regarding Bruss man's arbitrary rulings, and in some cases the action, of the in spector ' is overruled. Not only poor people who cannot afford the ordered improvement, but prosperous, citizens claim that their notice of condemna tion is an outrage, as repairs would meet the demands of the pedestrians and satisfy them; both of these classes pour protests and objections and "kicks" into the ears of Street Commissioner Naylor the livelong day and almost persuade that officer that "Maybe Inspector Bruss man is overzealous!" The notices of condemnation read on their faces as follows: "To . The sidewalk of lots No. on street is this day marked for condemnation and the same must be replaced by a new walk of material as designated by existing ordinances gov erning the same. On the reverse side of the notice is the following: Note Notice of intention to lay walk by owner of lot must be left with the clerk, aud notice that the same has been built must be filed within twenty days after the publication of the ordinance condemning the same. All walk laid by owners of lots mast be done under the direction of the city engineer, and of materials satisfactory to and approved by him when complete, and accepted by the mayor and council of the city.
