The Coroner's Verdict.
The inquest over the remains of

Coroner I'nruh, who has given
much time and care to ascertain all
facts in relation to the awful explo
sion, having sumiiionyd and exam
ined twenty'four iiwtnesses. Mr.
ITnruh deserves much credit for his
earnest endeavor to get at the cause
of the disaster, leaving nothing un
done in that direction. The testi
mony adduced was unworthy of
rep'tion here except that of Supt.
Bignell wherein he testified that he
believed there was a pressure of
pounds of steam when the boil
er exploded and gave his reasons
for thinking so, this with other tes
timony pretty securely fastened the
cause of the explosion onto Grebe

A Sad Case of I r.sanity.
Wednesday morning Constable'
John McGuire was informed by a
member of the family of Christ Kn
gleking that his nephew. Charles
Fngleking, a lad of about ninteen
years of age, was trying to kill h;m
self and for McGuire to come and
take him in charge. Mr. McGuire
at once started for the Kngleking
farm and found the boy standing
out in the pasture. He started to
go up to him but the boy started
for town with McGuire close in
pnrsuit. He made a direct line for
the Christian church and suceeded
in gaining an entrance to the cloak
room where he stopped and
resolved never to leave- When
seen hy an F)cho reporter he said
that he wanted to die and was not
going to leave the church until he
was dead. He said that he came
from Germany about eighteen
months ago and had lived with his
uncle evei y since. He would talk
freely in his broken way but in
sisted that he wanted to die and the
sobs mingled with bitter tears that
ran down his pale and delicate
face was indeed very sad. Dr.
Hobbs was summoned and had him
removed to his office where he was
placed on a cot and given stimu
lants. As near as we can gather
the facts concerning his demented
ness is that he is an exceedingly
bright 3'Outh but of a weak con
stitution and he had overworked
himvelf by day and sat up at night
studyitig his books unt;l he had
broken down by over taxation of
the phj-sical and mental organs.
Constable McGuire took him o
Plattsmouth yesterdaj- to have him
examined by the county board.
The W . C.T. U. Convention.
The fifth annual convention for
the second district of the Woman's
Christian Temp ance Union will
meet at Lincoln, July 28, 29 and 30.
A splendid time is promised and
judging irom the elaborate program
that has been printed the ladies
will all be there to hear and see the
great workers in the cause of
Christianity and temperance. Mrs.
C. M. Dodge and Mrs. Levings are
the delegates from this city. Mrs.
Spurlock, we notice, takes a promi
nent part in ihe discussions and
work of the convention. The regu
lar meet'ng of the Plattsmouth
"Union" is postpowed to one week
from next Wednesday night in
order to hear reports of the dele
gates returning from the convention.
If you haven't flopped you had
better do so at once as this thing of
a gubernatorial election this fall
wont wash. The statesmen who
favored the scheme in it incipiency
and got Major Watson into
the turmoil of newspaper criticisms
ought not to Hop until the major
was advised, that he might have
hedged too. It is very unfair to our
chairman. Here is what James K.
Boyd says about it as taken irom a
telegram to the State Journal:
"Kx-Governor Boyd takes issue
with Hon. John C. Watson relative
to the question of electing a suc
cessor to Governor Thayer this fall.
Speaking of the matter to-day he
said: 'Last winter I looked up the
whole question, having in view
recommending to the legislature
the passage of a law to meet just
such a condition as now exists in
this state. In my opinion there is
not t he shadow of authority iu the
state constitution for holding a
special gubernatorial election. On
the contrary the constitution ex
pressly provides that when the can
didate elected on the face of the
returns is for any reason disquali
fied aud is declared tf) be disqual
fied, Ihe old governor shall hold
over. If the republicans go ahead
and hold an election they will
simply make fools of themselves.
The only remedy is by changing
ihe const "tut'on, aud of course that
cannot be done soon enough to
meet the present contingency.'"
"Lieutenant Governor Thomas J.
Majors did not hesitate in declai-ng
that the election would be a fa-ce
The State Journal says editorially
that "A good many lawyers who
hesitated about expressing an
opinion about the governorship
when Chairman Watson threw his
'bomb' are all on the side of the
'even year' proposition after looking
up the law. Now they are
beginning to howl for the produc
tion of Johnny's 'authorities.' They
have a curiosity to know where he
can find them.
Had Fun With the Police.
There are several policemen in
Omaha just now who would have
donated three day's pay if a scienti
fie kicker could have been secured
to help kick themselves yesterday
morning for the breaks thejr made.
As the Farepaugh parade ap
proached Fifteenth and Farnani, a
man resembling a resident of
Podunk township, Wayback county,
wearing a pair of January whiskers
and a suit of clothes intended for a
14-year-old lad, drove his rig into
the procession. The rig was a
regular country ha3 wagon and
the motive power a canal boat
Of course he stopped one of the
band wagons and the policeman at
that point dashed out from the
crowd, grabbed the mule hy the
head and stopped the whole pro
cession by trying to make him turn
out. There was fun there for a few
minutes. That hay seed was a
circus clown and the mule one of
the famous trick mules, It worried
the policeman for a few minutes
until the alledged farmer gave the
cop a tip that he was supposed to
be a clown, that at any rate he got
his pay regularly from the circus.
At this the crowd set a roar and
the policeman sneaked back in the
crowd and muttered language
foreign to the dictionary.
The farmer-clown drove on up to
Sixteenth and Farnani, repeating
his former tactics, and was grabbed
by another policeman with the
same result. That refractory mule
backed when he tried make him go
ahead, and would have lain down
had his driver not tipped the cop.
The same thing was repeated when
ever the clown spied a policeman,
and he had more fun out of the
Omaha police than the residents of
Clontarf could have in the side
