REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE.
The Matter Will Probably Bo Carried
Into die Courts Before a
Final Settlement la
Cob urn Imses.
The county commissioners resumed their
Investigation of Sheriff Coburn's reports ,
after waiting until nearly half-past 10 o'clock
for the attorneys to put In an upnearance.
Mr. Cowin thought that before further
progress could bo made the board should de
cide whether , providing a man should pur
chase ono bushel of tipples and ono bushel
of potatoes , ho ought to pay for them sep
arately. Ha could not remain , but willingly
trusted his client , Mr. Coburn , to proceed
with the hcarlnc.
Commissioner Turner presided. The sher
iff usltcii to mulco a brief statement call
ing attention to reports that. Mr. Andersen
bad called him an ass in the mooting on Fri
day , and declared that if any such axpres-
had been used ho did not hear it.
Mr. Anderson , however , iavo no explana
tion , Ho neither confirmed or denied the re
port : neither did be thank the sheriff for
The chairman talked a long time on what
ha thought the shorter and bettor way to got
at this business , tie thought that all dis
puted bills should bo divided and. presented
' Why then , " Inquired Mr. O'Keeffe ,
"don't you refer this matter to the Jlnancc
committee anil lot It separate those accounts !
I would Into to Inquire , " ho continued ,
'what wo have mot for this mornlngV
Then followed a short wrangle as to
Whether tbo board adjourned last Friday to
moot In committee of the whole or as a board.
It was tin ally settled , and the clerk read re
ports and recommendations made by the
II nance committee on statements made by
County Auditor Kvons , which were roud at
Friday's ' meeting.
Mr. O'Kceffo asked , Coburn what , if any-
thinA ho had to sav ,
- "Of course I have , " replied that oalclal ,
and , talcing the statements , ontoicd into a
discussion of them. Ou the Items of mllcutro
nnd ballilf fees , a certain understanding had
been agreed upon , Ho objected , however , to
the board making deductions from bills for
boarding prisoners , which have been adjudi
cated nnd ordered paid. That is , he would
not brook an offset from any other claim
than the ono which is intended to ba effected.
County Attorney Mabonoy was then called
by Mr. Anderson to legally enlighten the
His opinion was not to Mr. Anderson's
liking. Said ho : "I think that any claims
allowed by the board must be paid ; then , if
there IB any difference which cannot ba set
tled by arbitration , the bjurd can sue for the
amount , but It Is not possible to niuka offsets
iu claims of ono kind to remedy any defects
found In claims of another kind.1'
Mr , Anderson turned his attention quickly
to tbo disputed claim of $3,700 for bailiff's
foes. Ho thought that was the only matter
before the committee for consideration.
Mr. O'Keeffe moved before discussion
could be opened , that this be laid on the
table temporarily eo as to give tbo commls-
loners an opportunity to confer with the
county Attorney ,
Mr. Coburn had made objections to the
cotnmittoo Interfering with this claim.
Mr. O'Koeffa's ' motion prevailed.
The committee on Jlnunce recommended
that the bill ot t3.OT8.85 for boarding pris
oners in May , Juno und July be allowed.
After deducting $101.83 for pity prisoners ,
this was accepted. The sdnio committee
also found that there was a total of $1,452.10
for I860 and ' 87 whlob is not disputed.
Anderson and Turner thereafter submit
ted a recommendation on Mr. Couum's re
port for those two years as folio wit "That ,
H a report I * this day presented , showing
au amount due the sheriff ! by I the county for
tlG70.D3 for boarding of prisoners nnd In
sane ; that the former amount bo placed ns a
Bet-off to the latter , and that u warrant bo
drawn from the general fund in payment of
the not balance , ( 23.SU.
This was referred with the others.
Turner and Corrigan submitted another
report , recommending that the sheriff bo
charged for the use of the jail by foreign
prisoners at the rate of 25 } cents per day
from August 15 , 188S.
This took the same course as the other ,
with Coburn's objection to it.
The sheriff was tbca requested to retire
while the committee could confer and decide
what action to take.
As the sheriff was taxing his leave someone
ono suggested that County Attorney Mahoney -
honey had several mouths ago submitted a
written opinion on all those matters.
"And the sheriff's ' attorney has also given
me his opinion on the same thing , " remarked
"Yes , " replied Coburn , "and I know law
yers who have given you their opinion tlm-
ply to get rid of you. "
The county attorney spoke again. Ho emphasized -
phasizod his position , that if tboro was any
difference between tbo board and sheriff
they must adjust them In the manner ho had
already indicated. In other words , deduc
tions cannot bo made from the
claim duo Coburn as bailiff fees ,
to offset a bill against him
for boarding prisoners. As thcso reports
and recommendations were objected to by the
sheriff , the matter must be carried into court
before It can bo finally settled.
"If that tribunal decides that I nm Indebted
to the county for $1,400 or any ether amount , "
says Mr. Coburn , "I will havotlie treasurer's
receipt for it within ono hour nfter it says
Whan the committee arose it submitted
the following report : Bills 3 , 4 and G , showIng -
Ing a balance due from the sheriff to the
county of $1,452.70 , as par iicurcs of expert ,
wo recommend that the county attorney bo
instructed to take the necessary legal steps
to collect the ubova sum , the same being
duo for the years 165(5 ( and 1837 ; also that
the county attorney proceed to collect
the sum of 25 % cents per day from the
sheriff for the usu of tha Jail for foreign
prisoners from August 15,1838 , to date , and
proceed to collect all ether Items that ho in
bis judgment thinks Is due the county from
Mr. Coburn said ho would concur m the
finding. That Trill give him an opportunity
to got it Into court. When the county attor
ney proceeds to collect ho will bo forced to

It says that "tho question of lighting the
city reduces itself to a question of dollars
and cents. Klectrlo lights cannot possibly

Thomson-Houston company disproves this

light company's bid was (2-i per lamp for the

Competition was Invltod for lighting the
streets of Omaha , and the gas and electric
companies flled their propositions , which
wore opened and acted on by the proper com
mittee , and they awarded the contract to the
Thomson-Houston company because their
bid was the lowest , taking Into consideration
the quantity and quality of light offered.
Forsomo mysterious reason the contract has
not been signed , although the presumption
exists that had the gas company been awarded
the contract the matter would never have
been taken out of the hands of the gas ami

They left without doing any further damage.
Captain O'Donahoo's saloon on Sixteenth

A nipoh.tnlo tiooks Into the Blall Car
OMAHA , August33.ITo the Editor of THE
BBB : I should like to express my opinion in
regard to "Letter Carrier's Protect" In the
DAILY BEB of August 2o. May I ask why a
letter carrier should ride free on the horse
and cable lines of Orauha nnd n mechanic
pay faro , and often times stand , when let
ter carriers occupy seats ! Is it a bonoQt to
the public , if so , what } Are they not paid to
deliver mail matter , the sixmo nsa mechanic
is paid to porform'bls laoor ? Who pays the
mechanics fare when he goes' aboat the city
to work , or allows him to ride free ! Does
ho not benefit the publiomore than the letter
carrier , who produces nothing towards
building upnr Improving the city , or country
generally , being simply a means of transit
employed , and well paid in comparison with
the trades , by the government of the United
States ) They say they are "able to cover
moro territory by being porunttod to ride on
the car lines , and button facilitate the deliv
ery of mnlL" I answer itr Is true , nnd
ask. By so doing are thorn not many
men as efficient as they are
prevented from entering the carrier service
by this same desire to spread over much
tnrritory men to who have boruo the fatigues
of many a march and the brunt of ninny
battles. This matter of benolit to the public
Is simply bosh with a big 13. The public can
wait ton minutes longer except the business
part ol It , for their mail and never fool that
they have boon neglected by the carriers. 1
know a number of carriers personally nnd
they are generally speaking "good fellows , "
nor do I protest against their riding free
simply because when I can manage to get
near enough to the orth west window of the
Sunday delivery to ask for mv mail and gen
erally repent the asking Infair English three
times then wait until several friends ( ? ) of
as many carriers In the roar of mo are given
thalr mall over my bead , which ta a prevailing
custom nt the Orauha postofllco , and I don't
get any answer as to mail from window at
tendants , only to receive It by carrier next
morning lirst delivery. I feel there
unxy bo much bonuflt rendered the public by
those phllantrophlsts. I have an opinion also
as regards policemen's rights to ride on our
city street cars which I should like to bo rid
of. FA IB PJ.AT.
