The Water -Company Has to Walk
It Will Pay Its Ovo Cotti, Amounting
Probably ti V20O, and Its Officers Can
Chronicle a Bit of Interesting-, Exper
ience Messrs. Chapman and Sullivan
ChagTinned at Their Exhibition.
Another act in the water company
farce was played before tbe federal
court in Omaha yesterday, and just as
The News predicted, the water com
pany was badly worsted.
Finding that their position was not
tenable, and, rather than be kicked
out by tbe court. Messrs.. Capman and
Sullivan on, yesterday dismissed their
own case thus :' saddling'' a big bill ol
costs onto Ifieif client '
The farce was not ended so easily,
however. Oneof the "twins" appears
for the Boston Safety Deposit company
while the side partner is the attorney
for the Plattsmoulh : Water company.
The superintendent of the company,
Mr. Pollock, testified that the two
were onnd' that the-stock- of the
water company- was owned by the
other named corporation, but for the
sake of the farce or the fees, the two
companies have suddenly become di
vorced,and we are.conf i onted with the
ridiculous "spectacle" of an attorney
throwing his client into bankruptcy.
ChapesaOf- representing the ..Safety
Deposit company, declares the Platts
mouth Water company insolvent, and
asks for a receiver. His old-time
chum , Sullivan accepts service and
says amen. There being at tbe time
no objection, the court at once ap
pointed T.n II. Pollock as such re
ceiver, ana within .ten minutes after
ward .the receiver files a new suit
against this city. A farce from start
to finish which the court will not be a
party to when il has been fully ad
vised of the facts.
The Boston stockholders will wake
up some fine morning and wonder
where they are at with their Nebraska
plant entirely swallowed up in costs
and attorney fees. This city can af
ford to look on and smile while the
Boston fellows pay for the fun. The
new. case that has been instituted will
no doubt go out of court as easily as
the first attempt of. tbe attorneys did,
and by that time the water company,
if there is anything left of it, will be

" Bnrned to Death.
John L. Jones, who used to reside
here -' and who married a woman
named Anthony, met with a most hor
rible death at Sioux City recently.
Two negroes set fire to the house he
waB living in; and it seems his family
was away. The result was that he was
roasted alive, his charred remains be
ing found after the fire had consumed
the ' building. The negroes were
caught and are both in jail. The de

Chippewa Falls In Imminent Danger of
Chicago, Dec. 2. Passengers who
came to Chicago today from Chippewa
valley stations assured anxious in
quirers that though there was still
the gravest ganger of Chippewa Falls
being destroyed there was no longer
any reasonable fear for Eau Claire.
The flood sufferers along Chippewa
river are praying for warmer weather
as much as a subiiding of the waters.
The thermometer at the Wisconsin
Central station at Chippewa Fails at
midnight registered 10 degrees below
zero. : ,, .... . . ,.
A rise in the temperature would al
leviate the suffering of the homeless
and terror-stricken people, as , well lis
melt the ice gorge and allow the river
to subside to its, ordinary channel in
the territory between the falls and
Irvine , station. The Northwestern
St. Paul and Wisconsin Central rail
ways have resumed .the running of
trains to Chippewa ,and the postofhee
has been , moved to the business por
tion of the town, seven . blocks away,
on the hill. ........
When the limited on the Wisconsin
Central road f rom . St. t Paui arrived
here this morning half an hour late
on account of time lost in passing Eau
Claire and Chippewa there were many
people at the depot to learn of the
conditions prevailing in the-stricken
region from the ' tiain men and 'pas
sengers. The train was at 'Chippewa
at 11 p. m., and the water wa9" then
over the platform of the depot. .The
people were hilled with fe r that ,the
worst would befall the town, business
was suspended and there was a gene
ral exodus to the hills north of town;

ST. LOUIS, Mo. Dec. 1. Reports re
ceived from southeastern and western
Texas state that a severe blizzard, has
been raging in these sections during
the last forty-eight hours.
At Houston, Victoria and , Eagle
Pass the heaviest snow storm of re
cent years is raging. It is not thought
that cattle will suffer very much..
Pikrrie, S. D., Dec. 1. Later storm
returns from the range country are
not so favorable as those which came
in earlier. While there were but few
cattle lost, the storm has proved to be
a serious one to sheep men. Henry
Seville, a rancher, came in this after
noon and reports passing .1,400 dead
sheep, which belong to--a - Montana
man. So far as has been learned at
least 2,000 are . lost with a large part
of the sheep range to. hear from. .
