John Campbell , ono of Oliver Maggard's
drivers , was seriously and perhaps fatally
injured by u freight elevator In ihorcir of
Hatch &Laumnn' china store on Parnora
street yesterday morning.
Campbell attempted to jump to the platform -

Ing toward the basement nnd was cauoht
between it and the walls of the
shaft mill terribly crushed across the nolvls.
The car wao bioppod as soon as possible
nnd physicians were summoned , who ordered
his removal to St. Joseph's hosmtnl , where
ho was taken in the police patrol wagon.
Campbell Is an unmarried man and has

DlmmtlArnctlon Into Court.
It was reported yesterday that the nt-
tornoysof Mrs. llyron Ucod would soon Ilto
u contest against ttio will of the late Byron
The cause for this action will bo the al
loyed lucqultnblo division of the property by
the testator. When Mrs. Hood first ex
pressed dissatisfaction It li said that her son
nnd daughter wcro willing to walvo tholr
rights under the will and share equally-
each a ono-thlrd Interest In the stato. This
may or may not bo true. The real Grounds
for'lho proposed contest nro not Icnown.
The Interested parties decline to talk. A
close frlciifi of ono of the heirs said yesterday
that ho regretted tlio proposed action keenly
nnd that ho could see no possible reason for
It. The ease will probably rcaoti the courts
this week. _

nnd many ether property owners residing In
the vicinity of Twenty-sixth and Patrick nvo-
nuo have a complaint against the city council
nud especially against their representatives ,
Chris Scocht and John Mclvmrio , in that
body. The property owners assert , that tbo
street Is In a deplorable condition , mid as tno
council will pay no attention to tholr wants
they have sent the following communication
to the Bic :
OMAHA , March 23. To tbo Editor of TIIC
BF.P. : As our appeals to the Sixth ward coun
cilman have been as naught , In writing to
you wo hone to call the attention of these on-
orgotla citizens wbo take such prldo In their
ward's welfare and appearance , hoping
thereby to Induce them to notlco tho. almost
Impassnblo condition of Twenty-sixth street
and Patrick avenue In particular. Wo have
stood this for the last four years , and at
every rain or thaw wo residents in .that
vicinity have had our property deluged with
mud and water owing to the defective condi
tion of the streets. Twenty-sixth street Is
graded In such a manner that It carries the
mud nnd water from some half
dozen adjacent streets down Patrick
avonuo. This water has cut the street up so
that travel Is conllned wholly to tbo sldos.
The abandoned street car tracks on Twenty-
sixth street are nt least a foot nbovo the
level of the street , but this only aids to mike
the deposit of mud ou Patrick nvcnuo
greater. Now , the property four miles from
the city has boon greatly bouotltod of lato.
Sidewalks have boon laid and streets kept m
order , but wo , who are much nearer , unvo
boon forced to be content with miniature
swamps In front of our homes. To bo sure
wo have stn > ct crossings , but as these are
nearly always covered with mud a foot In
depth they nro of little service. If Patrick
avenue nnd Twenty-sixth street wore put lu
Bhnpo It would provo an aid to Twenty-
fourth street also , as much of the tilth Is car
ried down to that street.

GRIEF ON TAP FOR THE TRIO
Democratic County Oommisiioncra Unable
to Maintain ThoSr Working Alliance ,
SPLIT ON DIVIDING THE PATRONAGE
Mnjor Pnililnck' * lIlTorli lo Select Poor-
mnstor .Mulioney'ft Successor Opposed by
Van Camp mid Tlmmn llepubll-
v\nn : Cnn Stiuul It.
The democratic tnomboH of tbo Board of
County Commissioners had agreed to make n
number ot appointments on April 1 , but now
they are nit nt sea nnd the wisest ono of the
trio wllljiot oven venture nn opinion ns what
may bo done upon thntdato.
When the democratic majority organized
during the early dnys ot the present year
there was an undorjtniullni ; that no changes
should tnko place until the first of
next mouth. A resolution upon tbo
subject was Introduced nnd adopted. Since
that time tbo throe democratic members have
be-on busily engaged In hunting candidates
Tor superintendent , matron nnd engineer nt
the poor farm ; engineer nnd janitors nt the
court house ; clerk of the county .board nnd
county physician. For n time It looked ns
though they would have uo difllctilty in mak
ing tholr selection , but now the aspect ot af
fairs has changed nnd no man can tell who
will bo the appointees.
There has been nu understanding tlmt-tho
appointments would bo made and confirmed
atthoscssion to bo hold next' Saturday , but
the split In the democratic rnuks now makes
this next to impossible.
The whole trouble started when PnddocJ
promised W. A. Austin of SoUtblQmnhathat
no should have tbo silporlntbadoncy of the
poor farm nnd county hospital. Tlniino nud
van Cnaip declared that they would light
Austin to the death ; thov declared that
Austin was not only n republican , but a citi
zen of very short dnrution. Paddock was
stubborn and said that ho did notcaro n cuss ,
tie know Austin and would put him
nto J. J. Mahonov's shoos. At last con
siderable democratic pressure- was brought
; o boar nnd Austin was dropped like n
hot potato. Without consulting his brother
democrats , Paddock' caught on to Gooriro
3uy and wlfo. Ho told thorn that they could
have the wholu thing nt tb.o hospital. Ho
would make Guy superintendent , While his
wlfo would bold the position of matron.
Van Camp learned of this and bolted the
ticket. Ho openly declared that Paddock
was trying to run the oiitlrolioanl , nnd that
if ho thought ho could do so ho could go on
with his wortt.
Chairman Timmolooked nt matters through
the same glasses as did Van Camp , but ho
smiled und maintained bis silence.
Paddock thought ho had things his own
way until last Saturday , but now bo hos
change hU mind. Ho realizes that thn chair
man went back on him when ho voted to
adopt Berlin's salary resolution.
Paddock feels the same way toward Vim
Camp , lor ho knows that Van deserted him
lu the hour of need. When the resolution
was road , Pnddocit talked long nnd loud for
Its roforonoo , nnd nil of the time ho knew
that Van Camp was out iu the corrhiori uud
would not como m to vote.
After the mooting adjourned Paddock de
nounced Var. Camp in loud nud clear terms.
Ho declared that ho had gene back on his
pledges and was playing into the hands
pf the republican members of the board.
This information was carried to Van Camp ,
who unhesitatingly remarked that Paddock
nlked too much with his mouth , that ho dis-
tustod the democrats.
The republicans ou the board do not fool
sad ever the turn that affairs have taken , for
they now feel pretty sure that when the ap
pointments nro made next Saturday they
will got their share of the loaves and fishes.
In other words , knowing the strained relations -
tions that exist between Van Camp and Pad
dock they oxncct that the former named
gentleman will tie up with them nud assist
In naming the appointees.
