A cao of electrocution occurred yesterday

The deceased xxas In the employ of Wilson
ft. Dr.iko , bollormakcrs , nt ii htconth and
Pierce , and xxas sent tottio power house this
morning to make some repairs on one of the
bolters that generates the steam to run the
djnamoB As the only opening Into the
boiler Is the stn.ill manhole nt the end , It la
necessary to use nrtlllulal light in making
repairs on the Inside and this was furnhhed
In this case hv an Intandcsccnl lamp .it the
end of several . \aids of slack xxiro , xvhlch

The lamp x\as placed Inside the boiler ,
with the wire resting on the lower side of
the manhole. Kluimn then started to crawl
inside , but ho never passed through the
fatal opening. Ills assistant , Michael J'roy ,
who was at the other end of the boiler ,
heard him scream , iincl tunning mound to
the opening , found Kkinan l.vlng In the manhole -
hole , xtlth Ills head and shouldus inside the
holler and his lugs hanging down outside.
Ho at once saw that something xxas xxrong ,
and seized Ukman by the ankles to draxx
him out to the open air , but received n so-
xoro shock as soon as ho touched the body
of his companion , which hurled him sexcral
feet away. Ho had , how oxer , moxcd the
body of nkman sufilclently to cause the
loucr part to oxerbalantc the upper , and the
body fell out of the inanholo and to the lloor
below. Assistance atrlxed Immediately , but
Kkman did not niox'o or breathe , and an ox-
nuimatlou showed that ho xxas dead.
Hun It lluii | > unc < l ,
A single glance at the fatal wlro showed
pithily how the accident had happened.
The Insulation over a pirt about an Inch
long had been torn off , leaving the wire exposed -
posed , and In crawling acioss It the deadly
ctiirent had been communicated to the body
of the unfoitunato man His shlit , wet
with the pcispirntton of hard toil , had
furnished a fieo conductor to the subtle
fluid and the DOO-xolt stieam of electricity ,
backed by a piessuro of fiom 400 to COO
Amperes , xxns forced through his body ,
thence to the metal walls of the boilei alxnc
nnd cm cither side of him. The poweiful
current had burned and blhtcicd the flesh
in a number of places , and the unmistak
able odor attending It wns plainlj noticeable
when the horror-stricken stokers gatlu-iea
nround the lifeless foim.
Coroner Maul wns at once notified and rc-
moxed the body to Ills moiguo. An
examination of the remains disclosed n deep
burn on the abdomen .is hutre as the nalin of
a. man's hand , xxith in irks running from it
toward either side , indicating where the
wire had been A long , uaiiow burn also
extended ticioss tno chest nnd tv > o Hrgo
blistcis , ns largo as sllxcr dollais , xxcte
found on the riuht hip The light aim was
buincd from the shoulder neail.x to the
elbow nnd on the right shoulder blndo was
n bum nnd blister , four inches wide nnd
sex en inches long. On the chest and Abdo
men the skin wns burned to a crisp , nnd the
llcsh undeinealh was chat red On the head ,
Just abox-o the light temple , was a biulse ,
nnd tic if It a gash an inch and a half long ,
but these wcio caused by striking against u
piottuding iilcco of iion ns the bodj fell
from the manhole. Neither of them would
ha\o been serious wounds , and it is prac
tically certain that the man was dead before
ho was seen by his companion.
ISkman was ! ! ! > years of ago nnd unmar
ried , and boaided at Twcntj-lUth street and
Popplotonaxcnuo. He had been in the employ
of Wilson & Drake for ten joars , and was rc-
parded as a faithful , haidworking and cnte-
ihu emplojcs at the power house had
been accustomed to use this wlie and light
Vihenox'ei an > thing of the kind was In de-
Iiiantt , and h id not noticed th it the insul.i-
t'on ' was imperfect. One of thorn thought
the defect was the icsuU of Milking the
xxhoablow with a haminei1 , thus rutting
the foxoring , but whether this was done by
the deceased while nt xxoru , or whether o'r
not it was done in th it wav at all , is some
thing that can only bo surmised.
Coroner's Initi [ < > ht.
The inquest oxer the remains of EUman
was held at the morgue yesterday afternoon.
But three \\ltnesses weio examined Troy ,
the nompanlou of the dead man , Superin
tendent Tutl.cr , of the stioot railwu\ com
pany , and ,1 M Wilson , the senior member
of the Him for which the deceased
vroiked at the time of his death Nothing
was teamed as to his dc-ith , 111010 than is
stated aboxe , ns theio was no eyewitness of
the occunenccb immediately preceding the
fatal contact with the xviio. The juiy ro-
tumed a xcidlct of death hi nccliUnt.il olcc
trie shock , and no blame was attached to
A careful examination of the premises
joiteulay afternoon demonstrated Uoiond n
doubt that the burn on the abdomen of the
derased xvas partly caused by 11 hot water
nnd steam pipe , and partly by tlio electric
cmiLMit. ' 1 ho inanholo Is a llttlo moio than
waist high fiom the tloor , and the plpo tuns
along Just below It. There is ox cry reason
to boliox'o that the dead man had put his
head and shoulders thtough the hole and
hiidjust thrown his xxoight on his chest
xxhenhorccelxed tliobhoek\\Iiich xxasof suf-
llclent foico to dopuxo him of coiuiol of his
muscles , and throw him upon the \vlio help
less IIo was also thrown upon tlio
hot pipe nt the snmo time , and olcctricl ins
in u of the opinion that the metal pipecaused
the cm rent entei ing nt the chest to seek an
outlet tit the abdomen , nnd ns his clothing
Jnterx'ened nn nio wns foimed , which burned
tin ) clothes and also caused the huge bum In
the flesh nt that point The shape of the
bum Indicates that it xxas In contact xxlth
the pipe , while tlio curicnt must haxo
passed through there to haxo charred the
llcsh. It Is not belioxcd that the burns on
tha arm nnd shoulder were caused by the
curient , ns the metal framework of the hole
is Insulated in the hio wall , and * nuld not
haxo offoicd n readj passage 'J hose burns
xvero undoubtedly caused by contact xxilh
the plpo after the body fell to the floor.
Wlro XViu All Might.
It seems qulto certain that the light xxlro
wns all right * vheii Ukman started Into the
boiler and that when ho pressed it upon the
sharp comer of the opening the Insulation
XMU either cut or so tightly compressed that
the current passed thiough to Ionian's body ,
the arc , thus foi mod but ning off moro of the
inuulatlon and within u xory short time
covering the xviro Itself.
niccti Iclans nre at u loss to knoxy xx lint
caused Klimaii'b death , ns they say that tlio
current wns not sufllciont to cause It Tha
light xvas on n sldo circuit with four other
lights , and wns connected by a half nmpoiu
fuse , xxhlch would haxo burned out had a
Btiongor current pnsacd through it. It Is
maintained that death could haullyhaxo
been caused by.lt , had not the xtctim had
oiganio heiiit tioubio , In which case the
shock might haxo had n fatal result.
Ho that as U may , the unfortunate n man
came lu contact xxlth n current , howoxer
strong it may haxo been , and did not survixo
it , anil the bums Just over the heart nnd on
the abdomen show that thu current xvas
not a weak ono.

engaged In xx riling nn order in the docket
this door opened gently and an Instant

small girl. Thinking no doubt that she had

ipproached the Judge and said : "Couldn't

City Attomoy Council yesterday morning
reccixcd fromD A. Campbell , the clerk of the
Nebraska supreme couit , a postal card bear-
ng the ir.form itlon that the opinion In the
Omaha pixlug case has not been filed by the
court and that only a memorandum of the
.udgment xxas glx'cn. Mr. Council had
asked for n copy of the opinion nnd the
reply of the clerk Indicates that it xxill bo
some time before t no opinion in full is filed ,
[ icrhaps not before September.
Hoxxexcr , Mr. Council Is of the opinion
tha-C.thc memorandum furnishes sulilcicnt
enlightenment for the council to proceed.and
that It is xx holly unnecessary to haxo the
opinion in full , as all of the points nt issue
haxo been covered. In his Judgment the
paving can noxv be proceeded xxlth in the
districts where majority petitions have been
filed , conditional or otherwise The attorney
also expresses the belief that In the future
It xx ill bo nocossnry to nvoid complications to
have a clear majority asking for ttio creation
of a paving district before the same can bo
done. With the districts in hand Mr. Con-
neil considers that the hue to follow is laid
out In the decision and that the contracts
can bo executed and the work of pax ing pro
ceed us soon as the bonds are disposed of.

In the schools Mr. Smith continued : "If It

Will It not ho possible to biing them to ac

that certain plans and spccltluitions arc all

If there is anybody responsible for

I am not In favor of creating any unpleasant

Hoxc that xxo shouldiproceed in a businesslike -
