An opinion from AV. J. Conncll was sub

chairman objected to having tills road , as It
was not addressed to the board. Mr.
Vaughn asked that It bo rend anyhow , but
Mr. Mount told him to take It to a court and
-not brine It Into the board , which was not u
court. At the request of the members it
was rend. Tim opinion was based on the
opinion of Messrs. Gannon , Hrcck
& Shea , which is directly con
trary to the opinion of the county
attorney. Mr. Conncll qualified his opinion
by saying ho had not seen the bid , but
thought the contract called for % % and 5 *

As a matter of fast , the contract does not ,
specify the number of Insertions , but the
bid , winch Is nmdc.a part of the contract ,
distinctly states that the llgurcs quoted nro

A communication was received from the
ticket agent of the Wubash railway , asldnt :
that the commissioners nllow their claim of
J'Jl.'J. ' ) for the transportation of the insane
prisoner , " .Tuck ttio Kipper , " to Now York.
The nmount covers the cost of two tickets to
Now Yorl : ana one return ticket. This is
the result of Commissioner Turner's junket ,
when he accompanied Jailor Joe Miller to
New York in charge of .Tuck the Hipper.
Anderson moved that the amount be
allowed , but O'KeelTe protested against the
payment. Ho said It wus establishing a very
bad precedent to allow such accounts.
Turner wedged in n side remark to the
effect Hint If any claim wcro allowed this
ono should be.
The claim was put to veto and carried , all
the members voting for it except O'KeetTe.
who wanted his protest recorded.
A request was received from the Hebrew

A resolution with along preamble was in

the law makes it the duly of the county clerk
to make out estimates for books , blanks , etc. ,
and that the commissioners by resolution ,
directed the county cleric to procure blank

ments of the law , which the cleric has failed
to do. It concluded :

wcro the only persons who followed llio re
mains to tticlr last resting place. They left
for homo on last evening's train.
The Inquest ns to how the deceased came
to her death was resumed yesterday morn-
Ing. Dr. F. S. Thotnnswas the flr t witness
called nnd testified as to the woman's mental
condition. Did not think that her answers
could bo relied on. Thought It DOAslblo that
n person In her condition could mnko rational
answers nnd was of the opinion thnt her an
swers nittilo later miaht bo more reliable
than those mndo when ho saw her.
Dr. D Mncrno saw her Monday nftornoon ,
nnd would bo disposed to place confidence iu
her statements. Said shod Id n't ' know how
she was shot , but did not do It herself.
Stated that Scott did not shoot bar.
The prisoner Scott was then examined , the
jury going to the clly Jail to tnko his testi
mony. Ho said the woman snapped the re
volver at the mirror , und then turned around ,
seemingly holding thn cuti with both hands.
She pulled thn trigger , when thcio was a re
port and she fell. Had seen her unload the
gun and snap It on previous occasions , Had
not been drinking and did not have n bottle
of whiskey. Hud his revolver In his band
whllo in the narlor , but did not nourish it.
Went to all the bouses thrco or thrco times n
week to got the n nines of now girls. Hns n
wife nnd ono child , nnd his father niso lives
in the family.
O Ulcer .loslyn was the ilrst witness called
after dinner. Saw the girl Monday after
noon , nnd questioned her. Said she Uncw
nothing nbout the shoollng. Said she didn't
dolt ; didn't think Scott did , because he hod
no reason to ; didn't ' know who did do It.
Said she took the gun out of Scott's pocket ,
took out the cartridges , pointed it at the
glass mul-pulled the trigger. Remembered
no moio about It. Nuxt day she suit ! she re
membered handing tlio gun back to Scott.
Had scon Scott drink , but not to CXCOFS , nnd
never saw him under the Influence of liquor.
Know Scott had boon going with < the de
ceased for two or three months.
Olllccr Fowler was next called and testi
fied as follows : "Scott asked mo to gi3 to
the house to soil some tickcis for our ball , ns
ho said Hello had promised to take two.
My beat wus on Upper Broadway , but it was
Sunday night and everything was quiet , HO I
went. Came away and left him there. Whllo
coming down Upper Hroadway Scott nskcd
mo to go Into a saloon , ns ho wanted to got a
drink of whisky. Ho went in nnd I waited
outside. Did not hear of the shooting for
nearly an hour after it happened. As wo
were coming down street ho rushed Into tbo
street and jumped on n motor train that was
running very fust. I don't see how ho man
aged to got on. About three minutes later
ho ngnin stood before mo nnd said : "That's
that- : of a Urelz. " Hrctz is Iho
name of a motor line conductor. "
Hluncho Clifton was recalled and stated
positively that she saw Scott tnko two loaded
cartridges out of his gun 'at the foot of the
stairs. Showed how ho ' 'broke" the gunnncl
extracted the cartridges. *
Mlnnio Snoatlio was the next witness , She
said"Scott came to my house , In the west
ern part of the city , In June , and Introduced
himself as a policeman. Said ho wanted to
get i > respectable boarding place for a.voting
l.idy frie'iil , whom ho had known slnco she
was a little girl. Said ho couldn't takq her
to his house bccnuso his wife was disposed
to bo contrary and would not agree
to it. Paid a week's board In
advance nnd brought her there.
Said she was to receive no gentleman callers ,
but that he might stop occasionally to ceo
bow she was getting along , as ho had to go
to the bridge every day. Got to cotmug so
often that she objected , nnd told the girl she
must leave , after being there ten duvs. She
went to another place where ho had engaged
board for her. Heard her say stic was
afraid of Scott , did not like him , and had
tried hard to shalic him , but could not do it.
Ho wanted her to go west with him , and
leave his family , but she did not want to.
Wanted to llnd some ono go Inf.- west by
wagon , EO that she could go and leave no
trail by which ho could follow her. Said
she believed ho would rather kilt her
than sco her go with someone else.
Scott was ver.v jealous , and ho had brought
her there to keep her away from other cnJl-
ers. Later , deceased went to Omaha , nria
came back after awhile , and lived just north
of the creek on Thirteenth street. Mot her
a few times , and deceased always bogged
her not to reveal her hiding place to Scott. "
Ofllcor Mullen testified that ho arrested
Scoit , but did not see him searched at the
station , and did not know whether or not
Scott had a bottle of whisky. Smclled bla
breath as ho was taking him to the station ,
nnd thet-o was a slrong odor of liquor. Did
not think Scott was under the Influence of
Dr. Waterman was the last witness , and
repeated his statements ureviously made to
n reporter , nnd which have boon published.
This was nil the evidence on hand , and tlio
jury then retired to mnko out u verdict.
They discussed the situation for nearly nn
hour , when they returned the following ver
"We , the Jurors , upon our oaths , do say
that Mrs. William Lndd , alias Lottlo Lo
land. cnmo to her death from n bullet from a
revolver , and wo believe , from all the clr-
cumslanccs in evidence , that said revolver
was hold in the hand of C. W. Scott. "
This verdict was not unexpected and
meets with n general expression of approval.
It docs not convict Scott of murder , but it
insures a full and complete Investigation ,
when all of the facts , pro and con , will bo
It is bolloved that the vigilance of the of *
fleers alone prevented Scott from becoming
the target for a bullet yesterday morning.
As stated in yesterday's Bii : the brothers
and sisters of the deceased called at the sta
tion Friday evening to sco the prisoner.
Ono of the brothers appeared very nervous ,
nnd kept his right hand In his outside over
coat pocket In u very suspicious manner , and
at the whispered request of a sister , u friend
pulled him to ono sldo and stated that
tbo prisoner was not allowed to talk. Ho
ilnnlly induced him to leave the jail for the
time. Orders wcro then given to keen n
close watch on the strangers , and If caught
prowling about the station to lock them up.
Yesterday morning the three brothers
called at the police station and asked to bo
allowed to sea or talk with fccott. City
Marshal Guunolla entered the jail proper ,
nnd after conferring with Scott It wus de
cided to search the men before permitting
them lo see him. Two of Iho men did not
object to a search , but the third ono did. A
revolver of ! U caliber , each chamber loaded ,
was found in his possession. This was taken
away from him , after which Scott
was called out. The men look n good
look at him , but said nothing. Scott wan
then returned to Ills cell , The men then
teen their departure , after receiving the
weapon. On luinJIiig it to the party from
whom it was taken , ho was informed that bo
had no right to carry a concealed weapon in
this state , to which ho replied that ho hud n
right to do BO. After their departure a liiisty
consultation was had among the officials ,
which resulted In a wariant being sworn
out for the arrest of the man who hnd the
gun on Iho charge of currying concealed
weapons , and it was placed In the bands of
Marshal Guunolla to sorvo.
The man kept out of eight , however , anil
left , on the evening train , It is the opinion
of the officers that the brotherfullylntciiclo.l
to shoot hcott as soon as ho appeared , aud
went to the jail for 'hat purpose.
The reason why the coroner's Jury went to
the juil to examine Scott , Instead of having
him taken to the loom where the Inquest
was hold , was because the city marshal re
quested it , stating that ho was nf raid that
Scott would bo killed If taken outside , As
It was , oftlcers were stationed at the windows
dews when Scott was taken out of his cell
Into the marshal's ' off lea to prevent anyona
shootlnir him from the outside. Scott was
badly frightened , and ho trembled as he
glanced nervously from ouu window to an
other , to BOO If an assassin lurked near. Ho
was but partially reassured by the words of
the marshal , and was evidently greatly re
lieved to get back to his cell , where u steel
wall nrotecteu him ,
One of the results which Is an outcome of
the trngedv is Iho resignation of Officer
Joglyn. Ho states thct the mayor demanded
