THE LATEST NEWS.
CIIAUOi:i WITH ADULTKKY.
Columbus, Neb., Aug. 10. The case
of Dr. Hamilton Mead of Platte Centre,
on trial (luring the ja&t two days before
Jiule Spiel, charged with adultery, ter
minated to-day by his being bound over
to the district court in f 300 bonds.
Eale Pass, Tex., Aug. 1C. Six of the
murderers of James Duval, an American
citizen at Santa IJosa, Mexico, have been
.sentenced to ten years' imprisonment
each. A seventh man, who spoke disre
speetfully of the dead man while in
court, was sentenced to the same term,
although not connected in the murder.
THE C HATTSWOKTII DISASTER THE UESULT
Chattswoi th. 111., Aug. 10. Disobedi
ence and obtuseness were the primary
causes of the slaughter at Davis' crossing
on Thursday morning. Had Section
Foreman Coughlin obeyed the spirit of
the letter of instructions he received from
his superior officer and had some of the
men, one of them in particular, who saw
the lights on the railroad track for an
hour on Wednesday nights, exerted them
selves to the extent of a two mile ride
on a hand car, the catastrophe would
never have occurred. These were the
primary facts developed by the coroner's
jury which for seven long hours to-day
examined witness after witness in its en
deavors to secure some linht recardinjj
the causes which led to the disaster. The
inquiry took place in the public school
building, and here the farmer jury de
veloped facts and elicited details in a
style which would have been creditable
to a jury composed of experienced mem
bers of the bar. A large number of
witnesses testified that several residents
of Piper City saw ft light burning on the
track toward Chatsworth on the night of
the disaster, but made no efforts to in
vestigate the cause. Some of them
thought it was the headlight of a locomo
tive. Joseph Morris, a farmer living
half a mile south of the culvert, swore
that he saw two or three of the section
men tiring the grass in close proximity to
the bridge just before dark on Wednes
day afternoon. After dark he saw a
blaze in that direction big enough to
make him think that a building was on
fire. This testimony was corroborated
by other farmers, and is contradictory to
the testimony of Coughlin, which was to
the effect thnt no fire had been lighted
near the bridge. After the witnesses had
been dismissed the iury held a
secret consultation and it was de
cided to bring the inquiry to a close to
morrow. It is likely a verdict will be
reached by noon.

The city council has held three special
meetings this week, on Saturday, Mon
day and Tuesday evenings. SuturJay
evening was chietly devoted to hearing
and receiving the report of Messrs. Hose
water & Christy, engineers. These gen
tlemen were present and submitted the
detailed plans, specifications and esti-
matcswhich they had prepared, showing
what was necessary to properly sewer the
citv and what it would cost The same
was accompanied by an explanatory and
advisory report. The estimate for a com
plete system of storm sewers is $84,672,
and for sewers of the separate system,
$52,420.50; to which would be added
the necessary expense for engineering and
superintending, perhaps lO'o more. The
estimate embraces 2$ m.les of storm sew
crage and 13 J miles of the separate sys
tern, mak'.ng in all 16 miles of sewerage
The report, plans, etc., were referred to a
committee. It is only expected to con
struct a part of the sewe:-ng at present
The plans and sptficatiops and estimates
cover the ent're city.
Monday evening the council devoted,
aiter first adopting the report of Rose
water & Christie and orde-ing them paid
their $2,000. to a wrestle with the propo
sition as to whether the city should as
sist in grad'ng for the street car line, or
in fact whether the street car company
should be allowed to grade at all. After
a good deal of discussion the street car
company was pe-mitted to go ahead, and
the council further appropriated $100 to
be expended in improving the street at
the point of the hill south of Heisel's
mill and also just west of the top of
Fairfield h 11. As soon as that question
was disoosed of councilman Murphy
called for the ordinance authorizing the
city to issue paving bonds, but it was
not on hand, much to his disgust. A
motion was put to adjouin; Murphy op
posed it and called for aye3 and nays,
and heroically voted "uav," but he was
alone in his vote and council adjourned.
Several of the members expressed their
dissatisfaction that nothing was done
with the pavng bond ordinance, the
mayor among the rest; and the meeting
Tuesday even'ng was called for the spec
ial purpose of acting on it.
At the Tuesday night meeting Messrs.
Dutton and McCallen were absent, all the
other members being present. The pav
?ng bond crd:nance was the only busi
ness introduced. It authorizes the city
of Plattsmouth to ?ssue intersection pav
ing bonds to the amount of $10,000 in
denominations of $500; payable in 20
years, but redeemable a.ter a years
from date on demand of the city. The
bonds bear 5 interest, payable semi
annually. On motion of Mr. Murphy
the ru'es were suspended, the ordinance
read three Umes and adopted; aud coun
