County Auditor Kvnns 1ms nbout com
pleted his Itemized statement showing what
the now hospital 1ms nlrcady , and what It
will approximately cost before it is com
pleted. EvorytliitiK , of course , la flqurcd
with Hynn & Walsh's contract of $120,000ns
'nbnsla. With this undorntnndlng ovldonco
of extravagance Is bolng discovered much
inoro satisfactorily than was at first antici
pated. Up to date the expenditures liavo
been $113-IOO.-i3. Thcro nro estimates
enough In sight to make a total cost of f 153-
000 , und the hospital is not nearly completed.
This covers simply the building , though the
grading of the alto nt $111,031.10 , and the or-
cavntlon costing $1,509.15 , and making n total
of jao,880.85 , has boon included in the
$112,400.43 already paid. The stixtcmont
in not Buniclcntly comnleto as
to justify reproduction , but Mr. Kvans ex
pects to hnvo It ready for the grand Jury by
the time that body Is rcudy to moot.
The grading feature , of course , comes In
as the llrst and principal item for investiga
tion. AR has already been stated , tlicro nro
ncriouA disputes butwccii the commissioners ,
contractors and all others who had anything
to do wlUi this matter. Tlicro arc the sto
ries , however , in hluclr and white , proving
that for removing 511.211 cublo yards of sur
face dirt Hynn & Walsh wcro paid at tbo rate
of 85 cents n yard. On the other hand , a
contract now on flic , shows where C. A. Jen
sen did grading on the tame site completing
what K.van < fc Walsh had loft un
done , nt 12Jf cents per yard. Jensen ,
according to ttio estimates , removed i8,934.1 !
yards and has been paid for the same ? U- ,
050.,15. In addition to the amounts already
stated , Hyan & Walsh too ! ; n smaller Job ,
only 1 ! , < MH ynrds , Tor which they charged at
the rate of l5 ! cents per yard , the total being
f 000.73. This brings thototalcost of grading
the hospital Bite up to 22.631.05.
Another apparently auspicious transaction
is found In the brick work. It Is generally
understood that brick in the wall , nt so much
per thousand , Includes the cost of sand , but
in this case a very different stuto of affairs
The estimates Indicate that , In the main
building , 5,1)37,000 ) brick , atll per thousand ,
have been used , the cost being $55,937. Added
to this is a bill of $ M2.2.ri for sand
without considering the cost of the cement
and other articles which outer Into the work.
These increase the cost of brick in the wall
to nearly $12 per thousand. Competent con
tractors Buy this is from $3 to $3 aoovo the
prevailing price.
In his statement , Mr. Evans incorporates
n few Items relative to the poor farm , how it
was originally purchased oC Henry Z. Chap
man for $0,000 , nevertheless costing ttio
county $18,032.07.
When Chapman mndo the transfer , ho re
ceived a cash payment of $2,000 and took four
notes of 51,001) ) each for the balance. Subse
quently , the commissioners discovered , it
scorns , that these notes were worth
less , consequently the matter drifted
along several years unsettled , un
til , finally , Chapman brought suit
and in duo course of tima secured Judg
ment for f 14,732.
The county took an appeal and the case
finally reached the supreme court of the
United States. As the attorney , J. M.
"Woolworth received for his services $1,300.
But the investment proved to bo n good olio ,
islnco half the farm lias been sold for $350-

Will Tlioy Itoduao or Increase Hates
to Interior Towns.
Omaha will cither enjoy a reduction in
freight rates to and from Chicago or the
rates to the interior points in Nebrasun will
bo increased so that tho- wholesale mer
chants of this cltv will bo a moro nearly on
equal footing with these of Chicago as fates
os freight rates are concerned.
General Tratllo Manager Molten , of the
Union Pacific , returned yesterday from
Chicago , where ho has boon in nttondenco
nt n trnfllo mooting which considered rates
on the western roads. "The situation" bo
eald. "Is somewhat complex , and I urn not
prepared to say what the outcome will be.
One thing Is certain , and that Is that the
rates between Omulia and Chicago will have
to bo lowered or the rates between Lincoln
mid lilto points in the interior of the state
and Chicago will increased. This rate
between Clilcaco and Interior points in Ne
braska and Kansas will come up before
Chairman Walker for arbitration Tuesday
next. What the outcome will bo remains to
bo developed , but u change in the ruto on Ne
braska business is required and must bo
made. "
This Is a desideratum which has long boon
sought for by the wholesale merchants ol
this city. The through rato. from Chicago to
points In Nebraska , as compared with the
sum of the two locals all along , Is said tc
linvo been unjust. In fact , the through
.rate , in a general summing uv
nt the present t.ino , It is said ,
will not represent moro than ( MJ
per cent of the rate formed bj
'tho ' two locals , Certain merchants uro said
to have been allowed to bill their shipments
'from Chicago to points west with the prlvi-
lego1 of unloading and storing nt this point ,
using the same way-bill when making a ship
racnt to the given point. In this way , thoj
Imvo enjoyed the same rate as do the Chicago
cage merchants. These nro exceptional
cases , however , because as a rule , Omahi
donlorn have been compelled to pay an oxtn
tariff on tbolr shipments. The opinion ii
that the basing point will bo the MUsour
river mid that the through rnto will be
formed by combining the two locals.
Mr , Mullen was not prepared to state
whether this move would bo made or not u
the meeting Tuesday.

Assistant General Freight Agent Cassldy
of the Elkhorn , states that In a few days bii

When Congressman -Connoll stopped In
Chicago the other day , on route homo , n
reporter , with Titr. line In hand , sought him
for an Interview. The Inquiry was upon the
subject of Mnyor Droatch's declaration In
favor of Now York for the world's fair. Ho
said :
"I hnvo Juit road the statements mndo by
Mnyor Itroatch , and I don't agrco with cither
his premises or his conclusions. In view of
the fact that Chicago proposes to pay the
freight on nil foreign exhibits , I can BCD no
objections to the location of the world's fair
at nn interior point , I personally nin dis
posed to favor any sc&cmo that will tend to
develop nnd build up the great northwest.
So far n < i the location of the falris-con-
corned , I regard the interests of Omnhit
and Nebraska M identical with these
of Chicago. I bollovo In helping these
who help themselves and are disposed to
help others , and I have nlwnyn ndmlrcd the
cntorprlso nnd progressive tendencies of Chi
cago. I expect to llvo to see the dny when
Chicago will hnvo n greater population than
Now York nnd when Oninha will hnvo a pop
ulation In excess of what Chlcaco now con
tains. Tliera Is no good rcasoi why the pro
gressive cities ot the northwest should not
pull together. The development ot ono
moans the growth of nl ) others. Chicago In
the future cannot hope to hold all her great
ndustrlcs , as is now bolng demonstrated by
the transfer of her great packing Interests to
Omaha and elsewhere. She ought not to bo
jealous of Omaha , as aho has been Inclined to
bo , on this account , and I can nssuro your
people nnd the press that with fair nnd pen-
orous treatment the people of Nebraska will
bo ready to respond to any demand that will
help Chicago's public enterprises , except
when they may directly conlllct with
our own interests. I bollovo the great
majority of the people of Nebraska
favor Chicago nbnvo all other points as the
place for hoidinc the world's fair in IStrj. It
is also true that. If the fair Is hold in Chicago
ten Nebraskans would bo nblo to visit It
where only ono wouldbo able to visit Now
York. As wo cannot hope to secure the fair
at Omaha , wo dcslro It to bn hold In as close
proximity to our progressive state as possi
ble. I bcllovo many thousand people will
visit the fair In the event of Its location nt
Chicago , and will continue their trip as far
west us Nebraska und oven to the Pacific
coast. This will eventually benefit nnd Uo-
. olop our stato. I understand also that it is
wntomplatod that excursions will bo ar
ranged to different states in the northwest ,
, vest , southwest and south ; that there will bo
incor moro to Nebraska , to ho known as Ne
braska day , and this will glvo many un op
portunity to see our country ; nnd , speak-
ng for myself , therefore , I am disposed to
'avor Chlchngo o-.or Now York , \Vashiug-
on , St. Louis or any other place that has
been mentioned. "

. . ivns on the care of children born prema
turely. The doctor took the position that n
child boru nftor six months' pregnancy can
> e reared if properly attended. This attend
ance is provided for by the doctor by the usd
of Incubators , which ho hold could bo
cheaply constructed by anyone. Ho pre
sented a sample hatching-box , which caught
the convention It Is simply n square box ,
closed , with ventilating appliances , heated
by soupstoncs , with a hammock for the ac
commodation of the child. Dr. Munsfoldo
asserted that thousands of children dlo annu
ally because of improper handling at birth.
This paper evoked considerable discus
sion. Nearly every physician present
expressed complete surprise and pleas
ure nt Dr. Mnnsfeldo's simple contrivance
that is so constantly needed in the practice
of obstetrics. Dr. Lord said ho was going
to turn carpenter at once and 1111 a long felt
want in his practice by the manufacture of
an incubator after Dr. Mansfoldo's patent.
Dr. Thomas , of Council Bluffs , told of u
case of premature birth in his own family m
which , in the absence of such u contrivance
ns shown by Dr. Mnnsfeldo , ho saved the
life of a prematurely born girl by keeping
the temperature iu the room at 1U1 to 103 =
by u constant fire in a base-burner. The
child was born at alx months utter concep
tion and is now twelve years of age , although
small and delicate.
Mrs. Dr. Strong cited a cases which had
come under her practice in which n child but
live and one-half months in conception
born and lived fifty-two hours by careful at
tention to temperature.
Dr. Bridges was highly pleased with Dr.
Manafelde'8 "hatcher. " Ho recommended
that the child bo placed in the hatchfei- with
head Inclined downward at an unglo ot
nearly forty-live devices and kept ID that
position three or four weeks. The recom
mendation was considered u valuable ono by
the physicians present. Dr. Gapen added n
further suggestion that the child when first
delivered should bo placed for a few hours
upon its right side.
City Physician flnlph then entertained the
meeting with the presentation of n
young man who was suffering
with gastric fistula , caused by
a stricture of the oesophagus. In
plum English the young man's gullet has
failed to perform its functions aud u rubber
tube has been inserted Into the patient's
stomach and ho receives his nourishment in
a liquid form through this Instrument. The
case is a very rare ono aud attracted great
attention and interest Iroin the physicians
Dr. J. E. Summers , Jr. , gave a paper on a
number of surclcal cases that 'huve como
under his practice in Omaha. A discussion
arose over ills action in ono case ia amputat
ing the limo of a patient who was suffering
from tuberculosis of the kuoo joint. Dr.
Jonas , Dr. Gapcn and Dr. Somcrs took issue
wifh Dr. Summers and argued In favor of
moro conservative practice in thu matter of
amputation , which they held should DO re
sorted to only when all other measures fall.
Dr. Summers In closing claimed that re
section in the case mentioned was Impossi
ble , owing to the ago of the patient and the
stage of the disease when thu case came into
his hands ,
'J ho morning session was closed by nn In
teresting paper presented by Dr. T. U.
Lacey , of Council Bluffs , on the transposi
tion of the abdominal uud thoracic viscera.
The subject died In a film Council Bluffs on
September U. A post mortem was hold and
disclosed a peculiarly interesting caso. The
bcurt was found nn the right side of the
thoracic cavity and higher than its normal
position. The lungs wcro in a compressed
state against the back of the cavity. The

After partaking of a good lunch the phy

discussions. The Ilrst was over tbo report
of the secretary who had credited hlmscll

so once. Tlio matter was explained uud the
reading of the various papers nnd the dis

"Pyosulpynx. " The patient in this case was

A physician from Red Oalt said that
10 thought the opinion oC the pre
ceding physician erroneous. Uugard-
ng the substitutes for ncontlo
recommended by the preceding speaker ho
had used auti-fobrin , which was regarded as
n sheet anchor , and but for an antidote given
vou hi liavo had crap a on the door himself.
Dr. Illldroth had nn opportunity of reply
ing and quoting the speakers dose of llvo
grains of anti-fobrm for the patient men-
toned a boy of twelve said that it was a
urge dose for an adult und that it was little
wonder that a funcrul did not follow. Dr.
Mansfield , of Ashland , wanted Dr. Mcrrlam
o nut his paper in plainer language in order
that ho , a plain country pructionor , might go
lomo with the satisfaction of having learned
something. Dr. Pcabody said ho had used
ha alkaloids mentioned for thirty
years , and had yet to sco u
unso of death resulting from their
UHO. Ho had seen cases of death that he
could attribute to slrichnla. and that it was
u common use. Ho opined that in the lisa
of all patent remedies too much euro could
not bo exercised , und the patient should be
carefully watched. The antidote should bo
ilwuys kept at hand , aud ovnry precaution
taken to prevent serious results. At the
conclusion of the advnnr.cuicntof the several
opinions , Dr. Mcrri.un explained his position
md severely took to task the physicians who
md consumed valuable time in u tumbling
discussion ol something "they " know nothing
about. Ho would not.go Into mlnutic , but

cruiser Chicago , the largest of the four ves

her most sanguine supporters during her
speed trials this week. The long continued
foggy weather practically delayed the trials
of the Yorktown ana Chicago until Tuesday ,
und nothing hits been published as to what
was accomplished undercortain _ conditions.
This is because the data taken by the en
gineers had not been worked out. Thn Chi

The account of the inquisition practiced
upon Joseph Urudloy , as published by Titr.
UEE Thursday moraine , stirred Marshal
Carder to the soul. Since then It has been
the town talk. On the advent of Tin : Ur.r. nt
the police Motion the ntmoxpnoro in that
vicinity was blue with oaths and Impreca
tions. The marshal threatened to shoot your
correspondent on sight , nnd to bring suit for
libel nnd malicious persecution. Hut , withal ,
ho kept the oven tenor of his way , nnd nt
this hour his pulse keeps up its tattoo nt the
ralu of socuty beats to the mlnuto. Thnco
yesterday the marshal called nt TUB linn
headquarters for a reckoning nnd as many
times found its representative absent. In
turn , however , the marshal was sought and
found. Strnngo though it may seem , greet
ings wcro friendly , even cordial. There were
no hostile demonstrations. Silence , however -
over , reigned for a moment , Mr. Carder
broke It by asking the question : "Who
; ave you the Information regarding the
[ ticking that was given .Too Hnulloy
on last Friday ovonlngl" Yankee fashion ,
ho question was answered by asking an
other. "You admit , then , that you turned
ho hose on lilm ? " ' ! do , " bo replied , "but
deny that it was done to extort a confes

o como along , but ho didn't s.iy a word. Ho
ipprovcd my punishment. Besides , former
iJminlstratiotm punished refractory prison
ers in the s.nno way , or I have been told so
on good authority. "
"But , marshal , don't you think it was n
ittle barbarous to drench a prisoner to the
skin who was compelled to pass the night in
one of those dump cells ? lu fact , couldn't '

"No , I don't ; Bradley had a stick In his

A Foul Attempt Frustrated.
A terrible crime was attempted yesterday
evening on the person of Miss llattie Swanson -
son , n girl of fifteen yaars , who lives with
her father and mother nt Twenty-seventh
nnd E streets. In the early oveninc Robert
Price , a son of a hotel man at Bennett , and
Itobcrt Hcnslcr , a helper in a restaurant in
tbo same town , called on the Swansons.
They are old friends of tbo family , having
known them for ten years or moro. Shortly
alter they catno word was received of tbo
serious illness of a Mr Ucdflold , a son-in-
law , who lives in unothcr part of the city ,
and the father and mother loft hastily to
visit his bedside. They loft the young lady
to keep house and entertain their guests.
No sooner had the old /oiks departed than
the young man made indecent proposals to
the girl , which she indignantly rejected.
'iheythen tried force , when she jumped
with a terrillc scream und escaped through
the wludow , tearing most of her clothing oil
in her frantic efforts to foil her would-be
dcspoilcrs. She rushed to the next neigh
bors , a Mrs. Kogera , and sought protection.
Shortly after this she saw the buggy leave
thu house , und supposing that they had gone
she returned to her homo. On going into
thn house , Price , who was concealed liehind
the door , sprang upon her , and throwing nor
on the bed attempted to outrage her. Again
her strength aided her and she was able to
make h-Jr cscauo , running a second * tiuio to
her nighbors , Mrs. Hogcrs , whcro she re
mained during the night. This morning Mr.
Swunson and the girl came to the police sta
tion and swore out a warrant for the arrest
of Price and Honsler , which was given to of-
llcors Malonu and Snyder to servo.
The ofllcers returned about 9 o'clock thu
evening with Prlco end Hensley. Price
was arrested in Bennett , Honsloy in Doug
lass. Prlco Is said to have admitted hie
guilt. Ho is a son of Tom Prlco , the well
known contractor.
Hensloy says that bo was there , but took
no part in the attempted outrage.
