A complaint was filed before the insanity commission yesterday charg ing Harry Adair, the young man who recently came here from Creston, la., with insanity. Adair, when he came to this city about a week ago seemed to be all right mentally. He pur chased the restaurant business of Oliver and Dick Osbourne, in the Gund building on Fourth street be tween Main and Vine, and made pre parations to open up a first class res taurant. Christmas day he exhib ited some symptoms of dementia and and Saturday and Sunday he was badly troubled with delusions, im agining that everybody was in a con spiracy to injure him. He discharged his cook and other help on Saturday and wanted them arrested upon vari ous charges which the police inves tigated and found to be groundless. Sunday he got out on the street and beggi'd people to come in and eat with him as he was running a first class place and in other ways he vnade himself noted. He also paint ed the windows of his restaurant with signs warning various "spot ters" and other characters to stay away or he would make trouble. He began talking of shooting people and like doings, and as his condition was becoming rapidly worse, his rela tives were notified and they decided to have him examined. The examination yesterday devel oped a flagrant case of dementia. He had all the illusions of a paran oiac and was plainly a dangerous Local Nevs. i George Horn came down this morn- i ing from Cedar Creek and met sev- J eral old friends here, afterwards con- j tinuing on to Omaha.

He tinuglncd he was a great detective and assured the po lice and sheriffs force that he could make five hundred arrests In twenty four hours If given the chance. The board heard all the evidence and also the representations of his relatives in the matter and decided to allow them to have the care of him, pro vided they take him home which is near Creston, la., at the town of Kent. This they agreed to do ami this morning Adair in company with Sheriff Quinton, departed on the early train for his home. The misfortune which lias over whelmed him is greatly regretted by all who know Mr. Adah- as he is a very bright young man and was quite popular personally. Ills fath er is said to have been afflicted with the satin- malady and to have died from the disease which has now at tacked the son, which makes it ap pear to be heredity. Mr. Adair for merly lived in this vicinity before the Spanish-American war. having joined Company It of the Third Ne braska Infantry in that war, in this city, serving through its term of ser vice under Capt. Sheldon and Lieut. Kawls. This was Col Bryan's regi ment. His military record was ex cellent and he made a model soldier, faithful, obedient and true. It is to be hoped that his affliction is merely temporary and that he will entirely recover. THE LIGHT QUESTION The Meeting Last Night Failed to Reach a Solution. ! The light committee of t lie city (council and the committee from the ; Commercial Club met together last, j night at the office of Councilman 1 Falter and after a lengthy confer I ence upon the light question failed to J reach any conclusion. It was deter I mined to make an effort to secure bids for lighting from outside parties who were reliable and to this end Councilman Falter was delegated to make a trip to Omaha, where he will confer with the local light companies and see what the prospect is for get ting them to compete for the con tract. If all other projects fail it. is probable that an iron-clad contract with the local company will be made by which the company will receive the lighting contract and in which they will be required to bind them selves to put their plant In shape to do business and enter into such a bond as will guarantee the faithful performance of their contract and du ties. This apparently is the best so lution of the problem which con fronts the people of the city. It has become almost imparative that light be had in this city, and if no contract can be made with a firm In shape to do business, one must be made with the local company under the best, of conditions.
