Tlio County Commissioners "Wilt Not
feliotv Up the Vnmlt Steal.
The oonrd of county commissioners is still
divided on the question of the ottr.u on the
vault In the oftlco of the clem of the district
court. Commissioner O'KcofTo ' proposes to
have an Investigation , but Mount ana Ander
son , It appears , nro fighting hard against It ,
Ask them what they propose to do and
their answer invariably will be , "Wo don't
knew. " O'Kcoffo has boon making strenu
ous efforts to have the balcony In the vault
measured and Its cost estimated by an expert -
pert , out thus far ho has not succeeded.
Christ Spccht and Gustavo Anderson seem
to bo the only exports on that kind of work
In Omaha , and both of them refuse to act.
Tlio matter was referred three
weeks ago to a special commlt-
tco of which O'KcofTo is chairman ,
but so far ns can bo learned that committee
has not taken much action as yet. Mount
and Anderson , it appears , antagonize the
Idea of employing nn expert , though O'ICoofTo
sajs ho proposes to have onn if he has to
bring him hero from Chicago and pay the
bill out of his own pocket. Ho contends that
they have admitted spending $500 too much
on the job and Is anxious to see what they
propose doing towards getting that money
back In nn In ton lew , Turner made the
statement that 5500 in excess of the actual
cost had been paid to Pan ley , and Bald the
latter must either refund It or forever bo
barred from competing for Douglas countv
work Mr. Mount nftcrwnrds s nd the Intel
view was coricct , but he manifests no
anxiety to have the matter looked into or
adjusted. At the meeting last
Saturday , when O'lCccffe asked what the
board proposed to do in the matter , Turner
movVl to adjourn and the motion prevailed.
In this mannc'r the Investigation uas staved
"How long is this thinggolngto continue ? "
nsitcd n taxpayer ycstciday. O'lCeeffo
has char ircd that the balcony in the vault
cost IMX ) Ho says that ho can show that
it would bo dear at $ .150. Now why waslli > 0
of the county's money over uml above what
was required paid for it. Some of these
commissioners admit havjng paid $500 too
much. Who authorized them to piv ono
cent above the actual costf If they have
paid $500 too much why may they not luxe
$1,150 or oven $1,200 too much , as O'KelTo '
charges ! If they havn't done as is nllceed
by O'KeofTe , why don't ' they put themselves
forward as denving his charge and proving
it to DO unfounded ! The fact is that thus
fur , they huvo evaded all attempts at inves
tigation. In this way they have led people
to bollcvo that they are afraid to meet the
charges. Can Commissioners Mount , An
derson , Tui nor and Corrigan allow this im
pression to become general 1 Tlio people will
not stand it. If these commissioners are un
willing to make u showing in this cnso , it
will not bo long before a move will bo made
in the courts to compel them to give an ac
count of their atuwaidsliip. "
There is a number of rumois lling around
about members of this county boaid which ,
it is likely , will bo appreciated bv the mem
bers when they are traced and found to ho
well founded.

unfortunate killing of Charles M. Wood ,
Saturday , was suipriscd at the verdict of
the coroner's jury , and said : "There can bo
no attached to the company or unv of
Its employos in tills matter. The man was
clearly a trespasser , and moro than that , wo
can show by ut least two witnesses that Mr.
Wood had been warned to cct oh the track.
The verdict will cut no llguio tiny way.
Why the 001 oner did not subpoena the men
who saw the accident , not ono of whom was
Hworn or testified before the jury , 1 cannot
understand. A nunibnr of men were on thu

no objections Tinully , it occurred to him
that the industry must bo a p lying one , and
turning to his contracts lie learned that no

led to considerable conjecture in railway
circles. H now transput's the corps of

tlio headquartoisof the Union Pacific some

At a late hour Tuesday night the bridge
at Columbus on the Burlington gave away to
the picssuro of ice , and the stiucture , which
is nbout two thousand feet long , together
with the approaches , was washed away. The
ice began moving in the stream about 4
o'clock i esterdav afternoon. The Burlington
bridge gave out shortly before midnight , and
only 11 vo minutes after a heavy fremht train
had crossed it. The bridge was built on piers
nnd was about , ton feet above high water
mark. The Union Pacific has abandoned its
bridge that crosses the Platte river at
Valley and reports icceived at headquaitors
{ o the effect that u largo amount of ice is
gathered there and the probability is the
biidge will bo toin away also. This structure
is also a pier bridge and , together with
approaches , is 4,030 , feet long. The bridiro
pioper is 2,107 feet in length. Although it is
ten feet above the standard of the river , U
was reported submerged this morning. The
company nio ondcavorintr to keep the ice
moving. Superintendent ICcssequie , of the
Nebraska division of tlio Union Pacific left
for the scene and was yesterday at work
