The grand Jury npponrod In Judge Hopo-
veil's court , yoUenlay afternoon about C
o'clock and MibmlUcd their report , embody
ing the result of their Invcstliratlons during
their session of over flvo weeks.
Two reports wcro submitted , rmo being on
the subject of the county commissioners und
county clerk , nnd the other on the , matter of
the county jail.
A butch of Indictments wcro also handed
Below Is tha report of the grand Jury :
State of Nebraska , Douplns county
Of the September term of tbo district
court of the Third judicial district of No-
braslca , within nnd for the county of Douir-
lae , in snld state , in the year of our Lord ,
The Rrnnil JuTors chosen , selected nnd
sworn , in nnd for Douglas county , do hereby
present their report of their doings as such
grund Jury.
On account of the great importance
of the matters concerning which the
grand Jury was ompnnellcd , nud on account
of a largo number of witnesses that It be-
dnmo necessary to oxamlno In order to nrrlvo
ut n full understanding of said mutters , the
Brand Jury has been compelled to remain
in session much longer tliim was expected
when wo were originally ouipitnnellou.Vo
liavti tnkcn all tbo testimony that was avail
able hi reference to the grading of the
county hospital site , the erection of the hos
pital , tha building of the wall about
the court house , mid the fitting of u vault In
the ofllco of the clerk of the district court ,
and from this testimony wo llnd as follows ;
1Vo find no criminal liability resting
upon any of the members of the county
board in connection with the building of the
county hospital , but wo find thai It was inju
dicious , unbusinesslike nnd contrary to a
wlsu public policy to make n verbal contract
for grading Uio county hospital site at an ex
travagant price , as was done , Instead of ad
vertising for bids and letting the contract to
the lowest bidder , und Unit by reason of this
unbusinesslike- method serious loss was occa
sioned the county.
! 2. Wo llnd that the nrchltoct ot the
county hospital building , by Ills dilatory and
evasive decisions , bus caused much delay
und expense in the erection of the building.
8. Wo llnd that the contractors have
shown u disposition to slight tno work , nnd
have dlsoboyod the superintendent's orders
to remove defective and condemned work
and material from the grounds. That the
bulldmgas : constructed , is in a bad condition ;
that the worlc is done in u rough and un-
worknmnliUo manner ; that It Is n sunous
question whether the building will bo safe
for occupancy , or will stand for uny great
length of time ; that the county would bo
better off with the material piled up ou the
grouud than to have the building in its pres
ent condition , and that tha building as it
now stands Is a lasting monument to the
stupidity nnd inofllcloncy of the contractors
and n dlsprncu to Dougjas county.
4.'o llnd that tlio auptirmtandcnts In
churgo of the work were remiss in tboir
duties In not compelling contractors to com
ply with tha plans nnd speciticritinns by
withholding estimates until the orders of the
fiupcrlntondonls wore oboycd.
C. in the matter , of the construction of the
retaining wall around the court house , wo
Und that an unsuccessful attempt was made
to brlho certain members of tbo county
board , Ulclinrd O'ICoelTo and William J.
Mount , by oltorlnc tbom money for the pur
pose of securing a favorable report upon
work done nnd the allowance of estimates
ou the saino. 13ut tlu.t , tie | said bribes hav
ing been offered moro than eighteen months
prior to the empanelling of this grand Jury ,
criminal proceedings ngumst the parties
offering said bribes uro barred by the statute
of limitations. Wo further find from the
testimony that the superintendent in chnrgo
of thu construction or this retaining wall re
ceived from the contractor extra compensa
tion while acting ns supjrlntondont.
0. Wo have been unable lo find that n con
tract wns made or order given to anyone to
construct a balcony In tun vault of the olllco
of the cleric of the district court , or to put In
filing cases nbovo the balcony. Wo llnd that
tbo commissioners who allowed the bill for
the balcony allowed the same in undue haste
und without duo consideration , and without
referring the same to the proper committee
before talcing action , and that bad tno war-
runt. been held for ton days , as required by
law , unv Irregularities might have been
7. The testimony submitted to us shows
that the county commissioners In the man-
ngcrncnt of the llnancial affairs of the county
have in many cases shown carelessness and
negligence. Wo further find that more or
less business has boon dona by mutual un
derstanding outsldo of the commissioners'
ofllco. Wo therefore recommend that all
business involving the expenditure of county
funds bo dooo In the commissioners' olllco ,
or If by necessity the work Is ordered when
the board Is not in session , the sumo
sliould bo ratified or repealed and
inaiio a mutter of record at the next meeting
of the board. Wo also Had that the records
of the county commissioners nro very incom
plete and thu testimony goes to show that
the reading of the minutes liasbcon deterred
for months at utimo , nud wo recommend
that all actions of the board shall appear
upon the records nud that the sumo should
bo road and approved ut oanh meeting of the
board. Wo also rccouimoiid that no bills bo
allowed or advances bo made on bills with
out the snmo being referred to the proper
commiUco of the boaril for duo consideration
before taking action thereon , and that n
strict compliance with the law requiring
county clerks to bold warrants ton days , bo
unforced , and that tbo county clerk bo re
quired to furnish tha county commissioners
, with voucher * for nil expenditures of money
in bis ofllce.
8. Wo bollove that the payment of foes to
county commissioners and county employes
for attendance before the grand Jury us wit
nesses is nn imposition to the
tax payers of tbo coanty , we
rocpmuieud not only as errand Jurors , but as
citizens , ( bnt if sold fees bo allowed the pro
per reduction be inado from tholr ) iuy as
county employes.
{ i. The grand jury was unable to find
many valuable paporo that wcro necessary In
their Investigations , and the county cleric being -
ing the authorized custodian of all papers
appertaining to It la oftlou and the ofllco of the
county commissioners , wo rocommona that
n proper system of receipts bo established ,
u'ul that uo books or papers bo allowed to betaken
taken from the county clerk's ' olllco uxcopt
by persons entitled to tha same , nud only
then by giving receipt for such books or
papers .
10. Wa find that the county clerk , making
n ( immorly report , bus been guilty of gross
carelessness and negligence.
A. Cl. Ci.iuic , foreman ,
The grand jury vlaitod the county jail nnd
found the enino to bo as clean and orderly as
) > osilblu In its crowded condition ,
Wo found that the placing of a fiteam heat
ing laundry and the syatain of "baking" the
prisoners' clothes kee | > s the jail cainpara-
lively free from vermin und diseaso.
Wo llnd an follows : A portion of the Jail
has never boon painted ; that some of the
iron has only a priming coat o ( paint , and
the walls are moro or leas smoked nnd dingy.
Wp therefore recommend that the in tor lotof
tbo jail bo lulutotl throughout.
\ \ o also Had In BOIIIO cases that the jailors
have boon obliged to attend foinulo prisoners
In the bath room aud oUuwhero ; wo there
fore recommend in the future , for the saka
of morality and decency , that a matron bo
employed ut ouea to cara for female pris
And that whore any member or members
of f arallioR of any prisoner vUit the Jail , they
bo accorded un interview scparato from
other prisoners , when the rules governing
tbo lubtilutlon will admit.
Wo aeuiii flud that the lower corridor , or
that portion sot apart for city prisoner * . Is
constructed to accomiuodato twenty-four
Itonwnt , but the average number confined Is
from forty to sixty , therefore nucensitatlni'
the slcepUig on tbo Iron floor , and complaint
lias been made of un ituufflcionoy of blank-
ou. Wo recommend that the sheriff supply
u proper iH-mbor of blanttaU.
Aud wo further recommend that the city
should take Immediate action towards bnltd-
In g a city jail.

iU > > rttton | of tlio KlKliorn.
It Is rcnortcd that a deal is now jiondlng
which means no less than tbo absorption of
the Fremont , KIkhorn & Missouri Valley by
the Union Pncillc.
The report Is to the effect that the Elkhorn
lias not been a money making medium at any
time , or to that extent ua to return a reason
able ronumcratlon on the money tied up In
the concern. The lines and the road proper
are In a strong competitive territory. Not
alone this but the provisions of the charter
under which its franchise woa grouted coin-
polls the Northwestern to maintain u sepa
rate and dUtinqt management from the
Northwestern proper.
It is now stated that a deal is pending
whereby the Union Pacific will take direct
control of the road and operate it in con
junction with its own lines.
Inquiry was made at tbo headquarters of
both thu intcr.csU > d lines , but the oDlcluls
professed to know nothing ofsuch nn under
taking. The Klkhora system. Involves about
fourteen hundred mile * of road and aside
from having a line tapping the grain bolt of
Nebraska , ulso has a direct line to the oil nnd
coal fluids of Wyoming. General Manager
Hurt , of the Elkhorn , is at present la Chicago
cage , and tha story goes that It Is there in
connection with the consolidation.
Practical railroad men outside of the Elkhorn -
horn and Union Pacific circles were ques
tioned concerning the result of the deal
should It be made , and all wcro a unit In ex
pressing their opinion that inasmuch as a
close truflle armogemout had been formed
between the Northwestern & Union Paclllc ,
there would bo DO grounds for rivalry or
competition between the two lines , nnd In
consrqucnco n fnrgo saving nf money lh t U
paid out to maintain a separate management ,
would necessarily follow.
Eioonl Fading Among Knglnocrs Con-
ermine Arthnr's Election.
The result of the engineers' meeting at
Denver ns regards the ro-oiccllon of P. M.
Arthur ns chief was not unexpected hero.
While OcorgoVromnn was supported heartily
by the western contingent , a largo number
of the men who supported him. were nnd nro
firm frloads of Chief Arthur. In Omaha the
result Is considered In two distinct \lghts. \
These favoring federation are not satisfied
with Chief Arthur's election , wuild Ibdso fa-
vorlnir "no entangling nlllancoi witlkothcr

Nick Weeks , who is n veteran engineer in
the employ of the Union Pacific , said ! "I am
well pleased with the result. I know Arthur
when ho was running nn cngluo on tbo Now
York Central , and this was long before ho
over dreamed of being nt the head of a urcat
organization lluo the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Engineers. Ho li n capable man , nud

Others , who favor federation , wore 'seen ,
but they stated that inasmuch ns Chief Ar
thur had been ro-clcctod It would bo but of
place for them to do anything or say any
thing that would tiot bo In support of the
chief officer of the Brotherhood. It is ad
mitted , however , that the anil-federation
