Attorney General hooso was busy yes
terday writing toGon.O'JJrion of Omaha ,
eoun.sel for Tom ISallard , urging him to

Speaking of this led the attorney general
to remark licit there was a great deal of
ignorance among county officials respect

would undoubtedly have hanged the

understand , says Mr. Leese , that even
when a man is convicted and sentenced
to death on a certain day , the execution
cannot legally take place witlioul a man-
dale from the court , and nollum ; of the
kind had been is.sued in Iho liohannon

Ir Galbr.ilth was summoned at a InU
hour la t night to attend one of the work
men on the new Union Pacilie bridgi
who had been paralysed while working
in thecai * on which is being sunk in the
river. Tlie man wsis taken very sudden
ly mid without warning. One of tin
men working wilh him in the caisson
noticed that lie had fallen down , doublet !
tip like a jack-knife , and went to his as
sistance. Hu found that the man wn
completely paraly/.cd from liishipsdown.
and. .summoning assistance , had him
quickly carried to the surface. One ol
the men \vit * men sent for Ihe doctor ,
who re-ipoiidcd ipn < .ki\ ,
The disease is a vei\ , peculiar one , and
was canned by the great pressure of air
upon the vital organs 'I be caisson has
now been sunk to a depth of lifty feel
below the surface of the liver , and tlie air
i forced into it at si pressure of twenty-
live pounds to the .square Inch. The
caisson is lo sill intents and purposes a
great diving bell , and the eompres-ed nir
is supplied through pipes thus keeping
out the water and enabling the men to
remove the sand from the bottom , thus
sinking the caN-oii to bed rock.
The means ofe\it , and entrance to Iho
caisson Is through air-locks , air-tight
chambers , placed sit the ton or bottom of
the structure. The air luck has two
doors , one commuuicaling with the oais-
. on and the other at the exterior. A man
wishing lo enter Hie caisson goes
into tlie air-lock and closes the
door behind him. A stop-cock being
opened allows the comiucsscd air from
the interior to lill the air-lock until the
pressure is equal to that of the caisson ,
when the interior door is opened and Ihc
workman may step in without uul con
sequences , The great danger lies in the
air-lock , for to it is traced all the fatal
The disease is said to have fust come
into general prominence during the
building of the great St. Louis bridge , in
the construction of which many men
lost their lives. It was at lirsl imperfectly
understood and. no provision being made
for the safety of the workmen , the mor
tality was great , and a very large per
centage of men who did not sutler fsdal
consequences were permanently crippled
or temporarily incapacitated. Exper
ience pointed out ways of preventing
many of tliu more serious consequences
and it is believed that in timu the elVect of
compressed air upon the human system
will oe so \yell uiidor.-tood that the. evils
may be entirely averted.
Whether the workman who wa * para-
Ijxed list : night will recover oi-notisn
matter of doubt. His is not the first ease
of the kind that has occurred in Omaha.
When the old bridge was built there were
a number of siniihir cases. SomeoHhem
proved fatal , while others left the victims
cripples for life. A few of the men so
alleclod entirely recovered , while the
crippled ones were given positions by
the company which they could lill with
out manual fab or. The case will un
doubtedly attract considerable interest
among the physicians of ( he city , and
others are liable to follow before the
work ol sinking the caissons is finished.

Elias Patrick , a carpenter working on
the slock yards exchange at South
Omaha , was struck by an engine near
Sheeloy's packing house hist cMjningand
received injuries which may prove fatal.
Patrick resides in this city and was on
his way home from work when the acci
dent occurred. Hu stepped from the
west bound track to avoid si train which
was coming towards him , not seeing an
engine which was running nt a high rale
of spued on thu other track. The east
bound engine struck him , throwing him
in front of the west bound train. Ho
landed on the co\ycatehor of the
west bound engine and rolled
tiom there to the side of the track. The
train was immediately stopped and Iho
unfortunate man picked tip and brought
to the city. The patrol wagon was sum
moned and conveyed him in sin uncon
scious condition to St. Joseph's hospital.
There ho was attended by Dr Gsilhrnith ,
who found that two of his ribs had neon
broken , his skull fractured , the nasal and
check bones crushed , and his limbs
frightfully bruised. It was found neces
sary to remo\c the entire nasal bone , it
having been completely crushed. The
other injuries wej'c dressed and the unfortunate -
fortunate man madu as comfortable as
possible , bill the probabilities at a lain
dour last night wcru that ho would not
live until morning.
Patrick Is a married man and has n
wife liying in this city.

and other lilj.'li ollicials of the court on
Monday next to open the long defcrrci
term in that cit.\ .
The insurance trial clo-od with Ihe tes
timony in rebuttal set forth by the drug
linn. A large number of witnesses were
examined and a vigorous as-anll
made on the charges of framl
nnd misrepresentation laid against Mr
Leighlon by the insurance companies.
It was estsiblished that nil the itiMirntici
wituessi's formerly in the employ of the
company , who testified to conspiracy on
the part of Leighton to garble the ao-
counls , secrete the salvage ami im > ke
fiil-o presentments of the loss , were dis
charged for incoinpetciicy and othci
venal offenses. It was charged that these ,
siiine employes , conscious of their im
perilling dismissal before the lire , hn
sol/.ud this opportunity to compromise
tlie linn so I hat they would have to lit

produced againsttonc of these fellows to
prejudice his'.ostimony and traps wort

And rub me they did My poor mother

It made mutters worse , for the sand dried

in my hands and the house set up a roar
at the sight of a bald-headed Potuvhin. I
and my brother Tom once noted the

with long Shangai logs , was gotten up as
the dromedary. His got hie figure and
long neck were wrapped in yellow col

the humps. My mother gave us eaelt

two-handled stretcher , had but
two crossbars for me to rest
on , and my legs hung over
one end. Hut a * I was a deaii man. of

Well , the position was painful. Still , as
I was covered with a pall and dead
Ciesar's toga , I did not mind. Hut , oh !
my agony trom having nothing to rest
my back on ; literally .supporting my on-
entire weight on the buck oi iny"head
and the calves oi my legs. The gentleman
who was delivering the oration over me
Marc Antony was very slow and long
winded. So that when ho came to the
line ? , ' 'See what a rent the envious
Casea made , " I suddenly collapsed.
1 bent up like a jack-knife and
slumped through the bier with my
knees glued to my chin. I appeared like
a sack of oals lallon through a broken
wheel-barrow. Hut did I move ? No ! I
stood it as a dead Ciesar should , although
the na ty stage carpenter did prod me
with sharpened knitting-noodles through
the slage Hoofing. I have acted the
