that 515 notices of condemnation had

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
