Bcstlon on the subject last night and llnulty

All of the councilmen were present cxcopt
Ford , Shrivor and Van Camp , and the entire
evening wns devoted to a discussion of the
i. major und the much desired end obtained In
the face of every style of opposition that Mr ,
IIiiBcull's fertile Imagination could nuggcst , .

The contract did not suit , lr. Unseal 1.
Ho wanted the contract for the Iron work
Rlvqn to an Omaha llrm , and went into ono
of his iong-wimlud harangues lu support of
his latest scheme.
Mr. ICuspur supported Mr. Hascall's
Bchemc. llii said 1'nxton < fc Vicrlltig's bid
Was only ? 5OOU , moro thun Unit of ail eastern
llrm and lie felt sure that tno tux payers of
the clt/ would bo willing to pay the
difference between the bids for the
Bake of laving the work performed by
Oainha labor end in nn Omaha manufactory.
Mr. Whoolcr said the additional cost of
c'ving ' the work to un Omalui bidder would
bo nearly $ lJOOJ ! , und he didn't bulicvu In
opening the any uueli uxpondlturo.
The ultTtirenco was simply a prolli for the
llrm furnishing the m.itcrlal.
Mi. Kiispar got xvitn'n then. "Whcclor is
nlways worictng against Omaha , " he said.
"Ho would notlmvo loft 1'lattHtnouth If ho
linil not been compelled to do so. "
" ' was worklnp for Omaim and Nebraska
Jisforo you crossed thu briuy deep , " retorted
"You were not,1' said ICaspar. "I was
blacking bouts In Omaha und Hurrahing for
the town when von was down ut Piaus-
mouth working nguiast us. "
Further cxctiango uf lompliments between
the distinguished gentlemen prevented
by the ctuir.
After aoiiio further talk Mr. VicrUng nnd
Mr. COOIH were called upon for statement * .
Mr , Vlorling stated that Ids firm's original
bid for the iron work was t5U.OUO
tut that they had afterwards cut It tofolt.UOO
nnd would still anherc to that olTor.
Mr. Coot's said ho had obligated himself to
Ilaugh , Ketchum St Co. , of Indianapolis ,
xvhoso bid waa S-lr > , OUU. and that , while ho
would gladly favor the homo tlrm , ho could
not uccopt its bid , oven if thu citv pulu the
different- ! ) unless Ilauyh , Kotchnm & Co.
were willing.
Still Mr. iluscall was not satisfied.
Ho wanted to know why the committee
had nut Incorporated In tno contract the ac
tion of the council providing for the appoint
ment nnd removal of the superintendent of
construction. It took about ua hour for Mr.
Hnseall to get it into his head that the speci
fications under which the contract was made
provided the method for appointing such su
perintendent. The action of thu council was
finally reconsidered , Huscall and Kuspar
voting no , nnd the clause left na in thospecr *
ficutions ; viz. : Thnt thesupcrlntondcntshall
be appointed by the council und architect
nn < ? be subject to removal b.v the council.
. , V Mill Mr. Hnseall was not aiitisllcd.
Ho moved that tlio contractor bo In-
Btrucled to use Omaha iron in thn construc
tion of the bull'ing ( , the city to pav the dif
ference In cost. The motion was lost. Has-
cull nnd Ku par voting in the iininu'itivo.
Still Mr. Hascall wns not satisfied.
Ho wanted to know what had become of
the council's resolution that none but union
laborers be employe j on the building.
The council , aflor u lengtny discussion of
the matter , decided that inasmuch us tneso
resolutions wcro not incorporated in ttic bids
for work , they could not bo incorporated in
the contract. Every member of the body
expressed his position as favoring union
labor , but admitted that it could not bo re-
Quiri'd o ! the contractor in this case under
the circumstances , iliu motion to recon
sider the union labor resolutions was
adopted , Uoyd , Huscall , ICaspar und O'Con
nor voting in the negative.
This left all the differences settled.
Still Mr. Huscall was not atsllod. !
Un the motion 10 adopt the contract Has
call and Kaspar voted in tlio negative.
Mr. Coots exprctyed a willingness to sign
thri contract then and there If the city
officials would sign it Mayor Broatch , who
; > hud been present , wont home Just before the
adoption of the report , and as his signature
jould not ho secured , the council adjourned
until this d-oning , when the contract will bo
presented for final adoption.

To' the Editor of Tim UEK : There is a
tract of country directly west of Omaha fet
three or four miles that , li worse off for

Nobntslca as near to n county seat of any

.Tlio TIcltntH tin Sale.
To-day the Missouri Pacific und the Wabash -
bash will place tickets on sale to St. Louis
at ono fare for the round trip from Omaha.
The action of these two lines liuvo created
considerable of n stir , for the reason that
they havu Ignored the territorial line estab
lished by the Western States Passenger as
sociation. When the roads in question lirst
broke from the agreement it was reported
that the whole affair would end In a bluff ,
and thnt the rate would not bo applied to
Omaha. Hepresent-Uivcs of both linns wora
seen last ulgnt , nnd staled positively that
the tickets would bo placed on sale this
morning. _

President Dodge , of the Port Worth road ,
is reported to have said that the matter of
leasing his road by the Union Pacific ; will
como up at a meeting of tbo directorate of
the latter road to bo held in Boston October
10. Also that by acquiring this the Union
Pacillu would be enabled to upply the differ
ential on business an far cast as tlio Missouri
river that is now allowed the Fort Worth
road. Ho is also reported to bavo said that ,
while the laws of Texas required a resident
management in connection with alt lines
operating in the state , a strong trafllc ar
rangement might bo made or n lease of the
adjunct ef the Fort Worth effected.
The Clioronno IVrocIc.
In the wreck on the Union Pacific Thurs
day near Choycnne , which is reported in TUB
BUG'S telegrams , Conductor nincker re
ceived a badly crushed limb , the porter's
skull was fractured , and four passengers
were slightly injured , Thu wrecking train
was scut from this city to clear up thu track.
Conductor Uii.cker is well known here ,
having , prior to his departure for the west ,
run a passenger train on tbo main lino. Ho
was taken to the hospital at Chcyenno and
his injuries will necessitate the amputation
of his right lownr limb. The injuries re
ceived by the porter may result fatally.
Fivu cars were Uerailoi and more or loss
smashed up. _
"How Do , Snmivcl ? "
Samuel B. Jones , formerly assistant gen
eral passenger agent of the Union Pacific
road , was iu town a few hours yesterday. Ho
came from Chicago to moot the excursion
partyof Knights Templar gomgoast ; over the
Northwestern line , with which ho is now
connected , arid escort them to tnat city.
Mr. Jones is looking well , and during his
short stay took advantacroof the time to see
and shake hands with ns many of 'his old
Omaha friends as possible.
Kullronil Note .
General G. M. Dodge , president of the
Fort Worth , is in Omaha. He will remain
hero about ono week , after which ho and
Vice President Hnlcomb , of the Union Pa
cific , wilt leave for Boston to attend a meet
ing of the board of directors of the latter
Superintendent Johnson , of the Oregon
Railway & Navigation system is in the city ,
accompanied by his family.
Passenger Cimino ? S17 and 803 have been
dispatched to Laramie for service on that
division of the Union I'aclllc.
Samuel Rhnada , superintendent of the
stone department of the Urtiou Puclllf , has
returned to headquarters at Denver.
C. li. Hanna , traveling passenger agentof
the Union Pacific , with headquarters at San
Francisco , is in Omaha. Ho accomuanlul
the Golden Gate commauUcry from the coast
to this point.
Until this season Keene confined him sol I
almost exclusively to Shakospoaro's trage
dies , but- believing that the field at largo
offurcd opportunities for a still greater test
of his powers , ho branched out somewhat
and took into his repertoire "Louis
XI , " n play that very few
uctors care to undertake , though
it Is nno of the moat dramatic as well as
strongly constructed tragedies that has over
been given to the slacc. Ho put it on ut
Hoyd's opura house last night , and being thu
ilfbt tlmo that It has been con iu Omaha for
suveral ycari , a largo audience attended
to witness its production. Closer attontiou
to , deeper interest in , or higher appreciation
of the performance , has riot been manifested
ut any event of thu kind , with tlio possible
'exception of one or two occasions when
Bool It appeared ns Hamlet. Mr. Keene held
the in close sympathy and magnetic
touch from beginning to end. His Hueech
and actions gave forth marvelous Imita
tions of the realistic , und so completely
WAS his identity burled In the character that
nnvoiui either acquainted with the man per
sonally or who has over soon him as Ulchard ,
rould hanlly bellovo the story of such com
plete oimngo. Hut the work of last night
only adds additional proof to what has ul-
ready been stated us to his \ronderlul ver
satility and thoroughly nrtlutio UU-
unt. However , thu honors of the
ovonine were not all berne by Mr. Keeno.
The audionca felt disposed to bestow a
goodlv portion upon George Loarock , who
assumed and sustained tha Uuku do Nemours
in u very masterful manner. Mr. Loarock is
n largo , handsome , graceful , clover uml of-
foctlvo uctor. At the end of the
fourth act , In the scene wherein he
lias the old monarch at hla
mercy , ho aroused the audience to a high
pitch of enthusiasm and received a double
curtain call. The balaaco of the company ,
especially MUs Shannon , played their parti
very well.
Tliroo binall Fires ,
The tire department was called out tw.'co

The German Central Club.
It seems that this German-American Bur-
gcrvcroin will turn out on masse the next
election day to the ballot box. Delegates of
the several ward clubs are endeavoring to
convince the German voters of the advant
ages they will have by voting only for- the
candidates which the central club will recom
mend to their support. It is hard to say at
present whether Snyder or Heirarod will bo
the man , though the latter is apparently the
favorite. Some of the leading Gorman poli
ticians expressed tbo opinion that should
both men bo nominated ono will be induced
to withdraw in favor of. tha other to
strengthen tbo Gorman clement.

Ulcer U the moro seiviccablo party for the
ofllcc. nit ,
The following arc thc lows on tlio subject
of Rrntlonicn tn Iwth.pajllnifR :
Dr. Merriam I thlnlc a physician has nn
advantage In the offiiM'on account of his
| > rofcsMonnl trnln'ntr.iilltmvo no proforcnco
especially. Dr. Carter- , would mnko a good
Dr. V. IF. CofTinmi A physician could do-
tcrmlno whether thnro were reasons for
liolding an Inquest or n post tnortom more
readily than a mrth not n member of the pro
fession. Dr. Carter would suit me.
Dr. Uobert Tno position really belongs to
the Mnedicnl profession. There nro many
cnsos In which n physlclon ns coroner could
nvoid the necessity of nn inquest. Dr. Cnr-
tor Is n candidate for the place nnd , while ho
is not of my politics , ho would innko a good
mnn.Dr. . Swotnnm An honest mnn Is nil that
Is necessary for the plnco. A physician
might have some advantages , though I don't '
think ol any just now.
Dr. lUlph I think n physician would bo
preferable. The work'is in his lino.
Dr. H. F. Crummer thought that the ofllco
should bo held by n physician. Ho road an
extract or two of modlcnl jurisprudence to
the effect that inquiries regarding the iden
tity of n deceased person , us also the cause
of death of an Individual on whom nn In
quest is to bo hold , necessitated mcdicnl evi
dence. "When this Is not required , " said
he , "then , us a general rule , an Inquest Is
not necessary. I believe that In the hands
of n physician the ovpcnso of running the
olllco would bo greatly reduced. "
"Slnco the Inw In Massachusetts wns
changed not ninny years ago , " said Dr.
Tovvuo , "making It necessary to elect a good
physician to the olllco of coroner , very much
moro satisfactory results have boon oh-
tnincd , nnd I believe , everything considered ,
a great deal of money would bo saved' to
Douglas county by having a physician in the
office. "
"I am strongly In favor of giving the ofllco
to a practicing physician , " said Dr. Gltick.
"and give as my reasons the opinion that
much can do ilono toward reaching more
satisfactory results lu the holding of In-
iiucstn and post the rtcui examinations. A
physician can comprehend more , in cases of
suicide especially , at a glance , as to what
flhould bo done thun nuy undertaker could
over llnd out. "
Dr. O. S. Wood I think o physician ought
to hold tliojiosltion of coroner. It would bo
a saving of expense to the county , because
there nro often times when a physician cor
oner could tell whether nn inquest or autop
sy was necessary or not , when an undertaker
coroner could not and the latter would bo
forced to institute ftuch investigations.
When an undertaker is coroner it throws too
much patronage to ouo man and is an injus
tice.Dr. . II. G. Miller It makes no difference tome
mo whether the ofllco of coroner is tilled by
a physician or an undertaker. I acted ns
coroner In Lonisville , ICy. , and I will say
t'nat I would not tnko the position nt $ .1,000
per year. It appears o mo that any pnysl-
eian with a good practice has something
moro in keeping with his calling than that
which ho would acquire through being cor
oner. I think ni a matter of cnolco the un-
dortnkcr should have it.
"I have been in Omaha only three years , "
said Dr. Gilmore , "nnd I don't care to rush
into urlnt with any opinion. I will say , how
ever , that by all odds , the coroner of Doug
las county , in my choice , should either bo a
doctor or u lawyer. There is a number of
you nt physicians und attorneys in Omaha
whocould 1111 the ofllco satisfactorily. 1 have
no choice : "
Dr. Lnnyon considered that the coroner
should bo anything but , nn undertaker , as the
latter was frequently tempted to work for
his individual interests fn preference to these
of justice. This , ho stated , without any ro-
Hection whatever on the gentlemen who have
been connected with the ofllrc hero.
Undertaker HurkcU said that whllo ho
had , ut ono time , been a candidate for the
ollleo , ho believed that It would bo better for
a physician to ucu "There are good reasons ,
however , why either a doctor or an under
taker should Illl the ofllco. For.inststice , la
case u person is killed or suicides and the
body has to bo piepnrod for shipment. In
case the coroner is an undertaker , ho can
prepare the corpse at once. ' If ho is a physi
cian und the inquest is postponed until the
next day , the remains will bo in a
bud state to handle and would
have to bo sent to fnenda
in a far worse condition than if proposed at
on co. Bnt'this is only an exception. I refer
to nine tunes out of ten , u physician could
handle the inquest far moro successfully
than an undertaker. "
Dr. Ayers I can't see why a physician
would make any hotter coroner than any
other man. The law prohibits a coroner
from holding n post-mortem , so the fact that
the coroner was a physician would bo of no
advantage in that respect. In sumo cases ,
a physician might be able to moro satisfac
torily determine the causes and extent of a
man's injuries than an unprofessional coroner
ner would bo , but , as a general thing , I don't
see what would bo gained by having a physi
cian in the olllco.
Undertaker Heafo.v An undertaker Is by
all moans the most suitable person for core
ner. A doctor Is inclined to cut up and dls-
iifrurc bodies for the benefits of science and
his own persoaalcurioslly. An undertaker ,
on the other hand , does all ho can to mnko
corpse presentable to frieuus. A physician
elected to the position of coroner has no
equipments for the work. He must buv n
vehicle suitable for hauling bodies , a coflln
box to carry them In , and must hire a man to
take cart ] of the bodies. An undertaker is
already equipped nnd can properly attend to
the business.
Undertaker Hachmann The ofllco of cor
oner should bo hold undertaker. In
nine out of every nineteen cases quick burial
might bo required , Floaters that nro found
in the river ; suicides after having boon dead
several days , and such cases , require prompt
attention for the welfare of the public. If
the coroner is un undertaker ho can take his
wagon and remove the corpse at onco. If ho
bo a physician ho wilt lirst have to go and
hold an inquest , then return , and go und got
some undertaker to remove the body. There
are cases when such delay might have much
better been dUncnsod with. "

The death of Mrs. Dr. Ilobblns , mentioned

lusband. Alleged pccullardeath of two for

It la learned that Mrs. Kobhlnsdlcd tn con
vulsions , but the attending physician , Dr.
Shoomahor , accounts for them by stating
.hat her death wns duo to n peculiar disease
) t the kidneys. He denominates the spasms
in which she mod uraomtc convulsions.
It appears that the doctor's second wife
Hied Id similar convulsions In August , 1SS3 ,
and at that time there wcro also ugly rumors.
Some three mouths ago ho married his Iiouso-
Iccopor , a Miss Cole , wno is qitlto proml-

coming so sonn after his thlni
wedding day , under alleged similar circum

many sensational features.
Some six years ago Charles W. Geode , of
this city , was united in marriage to Miss
Lillie May , n young girl but fourteen years
of age , and they lived happily together
thereafter. Something llko two years ago ,
however , the husband wcnttoICansastoscek
work and left his wife with Mrs. Jennie May ,
an nunt who lives iiMho city. Itnppoars the
aunt did not like her niece's husband , and
b.v threats , entreaties and commands in
duced her to upply for a divorce at the
November term of court , nearly a year ago.
C. G. Daxves , a member of the bar of tins
city , was retained by Mrs. May to secure the
divorce. The petition sot up thnt Mrs.
Geode had been deserted by her husband ;
that she hud been cruelly treated und abused
b.v him while they lived together. Evidence
was introduced supporting the allegations of
the petition , aud the court readily' grunted
her a decree. Shortly afterwards she re
moved to another state. Since then , how
ever , the divorced conplo sought each other
In correspondence. Explanations followed ,
und about a week ago the divorced wife ar
rived hero , She immediately sought a
lawyer and stated her caso. A rich petition
resulted. It cnarges Dawes , her former at
torney , with inducing bar to sign the petition
for divorcement charging desertion , cruel
treatment and abuse without her knowing
anything of its contents. She also allcccs
that her husband bad always been good and
kind to her ; that he had not deserted her ,
nnd that at the time the decree was granted
slioluiow where he wus and had been in con
stant correspondence with him ; that , In
fact , her aunt had compelled her to take the
step she bad taken , and that the allegations
of the petition were untrue. Upon this stato-
mcnt she prays that the decree may bo set
aside aud past relations restored.
Important Itccnininnnilatlons.
Auditor Hcnton was at his desk this morn
ing. Ho returned last night from Boston ,
Mass. , where ho attended the meeting of the
committee appointed by the national conven
tion of railroad commissioners. Kogarding
the meeting the auditor says : "There was a
full attendance of the committee. The moot
ing was for the purpose of recommending to
the different states amendments whcroby a
uniformity of railroad legislation may bo
reached. Several interesting suujccts were
proposoil and discussed , nnd recommenda
tions were male which , if adopted by the
legislatures of the different states , will tend ,
in a great measure , to solve the railroad
question. Ono particular recommendation ,
which is of interest to a largo number of
Nebraska people , is in regard to the ship
ment of coal requiring railroad companies to
deliver the number of tons of coal to the con
signee , which is billed by the con
signors and allowing them only to
charge for the actual tonmigc shipped.
For Instance , a dealer in Lincoln or Omaha
purchases a car load of coal at the mines.
Ho is compelled to take thb miiio weights ,
which 1 will say is eighteen tons , and upon
which ho pays the freight. When the car
arrives It is from ouo to three tons short.
Now , tbo question arises , where docs that
shortagp occur. Isituttlie mines , or is it
en route , und is not the company responsible
to the consignee for the amount named in
the bill ot lading ( It is claimed that several
coal dealers have been compelled to retire
from business m this state because of this.
Many other equally important recommenda
tions were made. The meeting was har
monious and of interest , especially to ttioao
present. "
