Contract was let yesterday evening to Mr. Stanton of Leavenworth for the paving of Santa Fe street from the Elgin hotel three blocks west, to the Free Methodist church corner. The paving blocks—with asphalt filler—same as the Main street paving, are to be used, and the street is to be 21 feet wide. This is five feet narrower than the Elm street pavement and four feet narrower than that on Denver street.
