Verdict for Defendant.
The case of Jacob Colin vs.
Ralph A. Duff, wherein he asked
for $15,000 damages for the in
juries which he received by rea
son of being struck by an auto
mobile being driven by the defend
ant, after he got out of his buggy
on Central avenue last fall.
The case was given to the jury
and they wore out some little
time, last evening, and sent for
Judge Travis and informed him
they had reached a verdict. The
fact that the jury was out for
some lime led to the report that
they favored a verdict for the
plaintiff, but this was dispelled
when the jury came into the box
and the foreman delivered a ver
dict for the defendant. The plain
tiff gave notice that the case would
be appealed. Nebraska City

Hope for Wireless Mistakes.
The fact that one new name cam

Carpathia was the basis of what was a
desire more than a hope that thera
were slips enough In her wireless llsta

Through the Cunarder Franconla,
which established wireless communi
cation with the rescue ship, came a
message which included this state
ment: "She hag a total of 705 survlvora
The previous statement from tha
Carpathia had been that she carried
868 survivors. It may be that the re
port received through the Franconla
Included a count of rescued passen

more members of the crew who must
have been In the boats which the Car
pathla picked up.
Communication was being had with
the Carpathia through both the scout
cruiser and the shore wireless sta
tion at fllasconsett. Through the Ches
ter there came slowly the names of
saved passengers from the third cabin
of the Titanic. The very sending of
these could but help confirm the fate
ful belief that there were no more
names of first and second cabin pas
sengers to send. And thus the namr
of well known men such as John Jacob
Aitor, William T. Stead, Isldor Straus
and others of the now familiar list of
otables could have been omitted la
the transmission of names. Thrt
these men have gone down with the
ship there remained hardly a doubt.
Authorities on conditions off the banks
agreed that rescues of passengers not
taken from the liner by the boats
would have hud to be made speedily,
as exposure and exhaustion would
quickly sap the life of human beings
forced to resort to any other means
than boats of keeping afloat.
Bodies Will Remain Down.
Haltltnore, April 18. "The bodies
of the victims of the Titanic are at the
iottom of the deep, never to leave It,"
declared Professor Robert W. Wool of
the chair of experimental physics of
"It Is altogether Improbablo that any
of the corpses ever return to the sur
face as Is the case with bodies
drowned In shallow water. At the
depth of two miles the pressure of the
water Is something like 6,000 pounds
to tho square inch, which Is far too
great to be overcome by buoyancy or
dinarily given drowned bodies by tb
gases generated la time."
