THE TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 23, 1904.
Second Ward Improrement Pro ject Passes the Council. Santa Fe Withdrew from the liemonstrance. T11AT SETTLED IT ALL Protest Was Then Far Short of Itequirement. Cltj Council Disposes of Much Koutiue Business. The sewer In the Second ward will probably be built. The remonstrance showed itself, upon City Engineer Mc Cabe's report to the council meeting Monday night, to be shy l.lo0,998 quare feet of resident property. The withdrawal of the Santa Fe railroads name from the protest as announced in the State Journal ex clusively last week, swung the tide In favor of the construction of tne sewer. Had the big railroad s name been re tained on the remonstrance. It would have won by 2.952.762 square fett. The report of City Engineer McCabe was adopted unanimously by the coun cil. In speaking of his work Mr. Mc Ca he spoke as follows: The remonstrance had over 1,000.000 square feet majority had only the resident property owners- holdings been counted. The Santa road does riot live in the Second ward in the same sense as the men who make their homes in the district. But the Santa Fe. as can be seen from the letter, with draws its name of its own accord, mat puts a big lot of square feet against the remonstrance." . There was some discussion over the wisdom of passing the ordinance until It was legally determined whether the t-?nta Fe could withdraw its name. Councilman Holliday of the Second ward raised the point. Councilman Rvder held that the legal point was not pertinent to discussion, but that tne report was up for adoption or rejection. The council took the North aiders view of the case and disposed of the matter with an adoption of the re- The letter of H. I. Mudge. general manager of the Santa Fe. taking the Santa Fe's name from the petition, was read and is as follows: "Referring to the matter of the Second ward sewer: This sewer if constructed will be of no benefit to the Santa Fe company, as we have been obliged to build sewers at our own expense. "It was presented to me that the sewer would be of no advantage to the majority of the residents of the Second ward because of the lack of water mains In that part of the city. Jt was further stated that the ma jority of the people affected did not desire a sewer built, but that the Santa Fe with Its large ownership of land would be considered as voting for the sewer unless It signed the protest. I said to these gentlemen that the company did not . wish to stand in the way of a needed improve mtit BimnlT heeause of Its share in th enense. but on the other hand we did not wish to be counted In favor of it as against the wishes of the iwnnir With this understanding I oiihnrl(l the aiming of the protest "It now being represented to me by vmiT-spif and the president of the board of health that the sewer is nec pssarr on account of the public health nnrt also in order to take care of the flood waters of Biddle creek and other surface water, and that the majority r.f the neode are probably In favor of It;- with this representation of the case, I am now willing to withdraw the protest of the Santa Fe company with the understanding that our In terest shall not be counted either for or aratnst the proposition and that the residents and other property own era In that ward be allowed to decide the matter without the Influence of the rallwav company either way. "Tou may therefore arrange to erase our signature from the protest. "H. IT. MUDGE." City Engineer McCabes report fol lows: To the Comtniee on Sewers.

The latter concerns have been the objects of pro test after protest from residents lrTthe neighborhood of Chase avenue and the river where they are located. Councilman Griley recently introduc ed a resolution to dissolve the contract between the city and the desiccating works. The health and sanitation com mittee reported on Monday night that something must be done at once. After n good deal of wrangling, on the part of several councilrnen.

William Schick was granted privi lege to erect a one-story addition to his building at the corner of Second and Jackson streets, to be built of hollow cement blocks. An ordinance covering cement building is .now be fore the council for consideration. Upon the motion of Councilman Swendson the council on Monday night ordered the Installation of 12 fire hyd rants In the southwest part of the city in the Washburn college and Lawman Jtiili districts.

City Engineer McCabe submitted an approximate estimate of the cost of raising the bridge over Soldier creek on Central avenue. The total sum without he filling in of approaches aggregates $647.89. The Continental Oil and Gas com pany asked for an extension of Its franchise granted on August 14, 1903, at which time the company placed 1,000 as guarantee that work would be com menced within a year. The time limit expired recently and the city desires to know how far construction has prog ressed. The matter was referred to the streets and walks committee. The petitions for the pavement of Jackson street from Hun toon to Twelfth, and Twelfth from Jackson to Kansas avenue were allowed. These streets are contiguous to the city jail wav shoDS. Emahizer & Spielman were granted the right to construct a passage way 18 feet wide across the alley from Fifth to Sixth street, to connect building on Kansas and Jackson avenues.

In an unsolicited message to the city council read at its meeting Mon day night, City Attorney Spencer urged the taking of Immediate steps looking towards the disposition or tne water works question. Beyond an opinion that tne city is ; not legally bound to purchase the plant at $620,000, Mr. Spencer sug gested no remedy for the present status of the matter. Instead, ne asks the council a question, namely, whether the plant ia In such condition that the council Is deslrlous of pur chasing it. If It Is not, then it should keep itself free to work in otner directions. A part of Mr. Spencer's message follows: It is now an important question whether the city shall continue to drift along for an Indefinite time with out a determination of its status with the Water company. Shall the city wait an indefinite number of years to find out whether the water company will finally be able to make a title to Its water plant and transfer the same to the city? If that time comes, will the city be ready and willing to take the plant In the condition it may be in and pay 3620,000 for it? Or to make it more pertinent, supposing the water company was now ready to turn over the plant and furnish a good title, would the city be ready and willing to take It and pay the above price for it In its present condition? There Is an extended belief at tms time among the citizens of Topeka that there Is something materially defective In the condition of the water plant, and that the city should not pay $620,000 for it in Its present con dition. The mayor and council aia not settle definitely in January last, and, as I understand It, have never yet definitely settled whether the city was ready to take the plant In its condition since the flood and pay the above price. When the matter was under consideration last January, tne council caused some Investigation to he made and a report was meet pur suant thereto, but certainly no one will claim that this investigation was of such a character as to satisfy the public or to satisfy tne mayor ana council. After the making of this m- vAKtlo-ation and the filing of the re port, and upon tne aavice oi me at torney representing the city, the council declined to enter into the definite and certain contract for the tmiitfer nf the nlant in its then conai tion proposed by the president of the water company. All this occurred Before tne raranurei St Davis fire. In February, after the rarknurst c Davis fire, the Commercial club discuss ed the condition of the water plant and passed certain resolutions which were presented to tne council, at its meeting held February 25. In these resolutions. among other things, tne commercial club expressed itself to the effect that the water plant was much less valuable than at the time the election to vote bonds to purchase it Was held, that it was the duty of the council before com pleting the purchase of the plant to a mnqr rarpiat examination tu be made of it by experts, ana tnat trie plant should be put in the same condi tion It was at the time or tne election. At the same meeting of the council at n-hirh these resolutions were pre sented. Councilman Howe presented a resolution calling for a tnorougn nam in.iinn nf tha water olant bv an expert hydraulic engineer, for the purpose of determining what repairs, extensions or imnrwoment -were necessary to put the plant in condition to furnish the people with an ample supply of water and to afford sufficient fire protection, regard being had to future as well as to Dresent needs. This resolution was r-orfri tn the committee on water works, but no further action has been taken thereon. i.nnnt of the situation now ex Isting the city is In many ways at dis advantage in taking action in reference . hA n-itar mmnjinv. Improvements in the plant are without doubt greatly needed. If pursuant to orders and di rections of the mayor and council the water company should make material improvements In its pumping plant, or mains, or in the extension of Its mams, serious complications are almost sure to arise in case the city should here after take the plant. Evidently the water company does not intend to make material improvements while this proposition to purchase is pending, without some understanding as to re imbursement by the city In se of the purchase of the plant. Moreover, it is not likely that the water company will make much im provement In Its plant at its own ex pense until Its future franchise rights are settled in some way. The question which now seems to me to be precedent to all others and which stands in the way of action 1 . a .-.-.mawai upon the part of the mayor and coun- SNAPSHOTS AT HUJIJSfifin 3. cil, is whether the plant -oi tne water company is in such condition that the city is willing to purchase it at $620, 000. In all probability that question will have to be met and determined some time. There are many good reasons why it should -be determined soon, and I can see no good reason why it should not be determined. If it should be determined that the city hii nnt tnlre the rjlant at the price proposed, the city will then be left free to take other action. If, on the other hand, the city is satisfied with the condition of the plant and desires to consummate the purchase, and is willing to wait until such time as the water company win c auie iu nac good its title and transfer the plant, arrangements can perhaps be made '1 tolls in 8e furrer Fer ter make my bread, Wen de sun like, a blister In de sky overhead, En I won't git res' 'Twel de wort' turn roun , En Gabrul makes a flutter.

The woman was demented from the ef fects of liquor, and fought like a wild cat when taken in hand by the po lice. She kept up a string of pro fanity while the officers were taking her to the county Jail, where she was held until she sobered. Her husband came for her, and she was released. The Koehler woman was recently arrested on the charge of larceny. Mrs. George Allendorf of North Topeka, accused her of stealing $170. The Koehler woman is now under bond to the district court on that charge.
