Award of Damages to Property Owners

Non.flciidtnt Owners U'lCqulre Eight :

Ilence Tuesday lorlllg.
After twelve days of work at $12 a day'
the jurors made a report to the sheriff yes-
terday or tile amount of damages to be paid
by the Omaha Dr.dge and Terminal Railway
company for the alleged Injury to property
done by tim railway iinowhlch , It Is proposed
to lay along Union ave ue. As was easily
imagined beforehand , the damages were tint
very extensive. The sum of $ apiece was
awarded to Joseph Schlitz , K. N Slyter ,
Mary Mclendry , H. J. Cory , L. 1erlt . A. ,
W. ticekilof ? , C. D. Palmer (2 ( lots ) , n. Mc- :

dlson Cochran A hike amount , pins the cot
of the grading already done , was awarded to
I" A. Sacket and T. J. Carrothers the
former's b:1 : being 5.33 and the latter's
$24.79. The above list Include all the resi-
dent property owners. A notice of eight
weeks had to given nonresidents , and when
the time shaJ have elapsed the jury will
get together again and finish the job. The
nonresident property owners , I Is thought ,
will requlro about tile snle length of time .
The jury spent a great deal of time \sten-
Ini to property owners who were afraid the
earth would not be theirs when the tIme
came for final recllonlng. One man . who
owns a house just west of the electric light
power ilOuse thought his place was worth
$ ,000. and the damage to his pro erty from
the railway track would be at least hal that
amount. A glance at the rEcords showed the
jury that his property was assessed at $200.
Mther man had a lot at the bottom of a
deep halo and thought It was worth $1,000.
but the nssessor's books showed that ho had
been paying taxes on I at the valuation of
$115. These were but specimens of the
grabbers that presented tilemselves but the (
jury was too convenient to the county records
to be taken In for any great length of time.
There will no doubt bo n great deal of dls-
satisfactIon with the decision of tile jury , but
whether the owners of the property affected
care enough about It to appeal to the district
court as they have the rIght to do remains
to be seen.
To much of the property there Is no doubt
that the plan of the Terminal company If
carrie out , will b a positive benefIt. The
street wi bo brought to grade and this
will require In some cases a fill of six feet
and through the entire length of the street
so great a fill that the city could never order
property. It don without confiscating the abutting
Superintendent Harris of the Terminal I
company will be here Monday , and the Cay ,
engineer will set stakes so that thc work :
of grading may be begun Tuesday morning.
Only Counci Bluffs laborers arc to be em-
ployed. Twenty cents a yard will bo paid
the haulers and tickets will be Issued In I
payment , which Ire to be cashed Saturday

IUJItGLARS DO A FAIR NIOUT'S WORU : .
Numerous nec's ' Visited but No
Numerus .1"o's' Vllled Great
The gang of burglars that Infested Council
' Blurs a short time ago has returned tram'
two weeks' vacation greatly refreshed , and
Is buckling down to work with renewed
zeal. At ' an early hour yesterday mornrng
an attempt was made to enter the house of
Dr. C. Deetken on Washington avenue , near
the corner of Scott street. The end of a
file was use In the effort to rise two of
the windows but they were fastened down
so securely that the fellow was unable to get
In. Ho crossed the yard leaped the fence ,
and tried the residence of Mrs. W. H. Cop-
son , where ho was more successful. Mrs.
Copson heard a suspicious sound , but was
too frightened even to scream Frank Sha- i
for , a young liveryman who has a room at
the Copsom mansion heard the fellow mov-
lag abut his room and got up and spoke to
him. But his visitor did not care to strike
up an acquaintance . and grabbing Shatter's
trousers which lay on the mantel conveniently -
venienty , ho made a brealc out or the house ,
with Shafer after him armed with a chair.
In his flght he dropped the trousers on a
snowdrift , but not until ho had robbed the
po'ckets bf $25 In cash which they contained.
In his haste ho overlooked two silver quar-
ters In one of the pockets. A small auto-
graph album was also found lying In the
snow , the burglar having picked It up , ap-
parenty thinking I was a pocketbook.
The residence of H. S. Jones , 216 Frank
street , was also entered. An open window ,
discovered In the morning , was the first
inkling that anything was wrong , and It
was followed up by the finding .of a pocket-
book on the front porch . -from which $10 In
money had been abstracted and the papers
It ; contained had been cast to the four winds.
A couple o ( dollars In loose change was over-
looked , and It Is supposed that the fellow
vas frightened off before he had finished the
Dean Fener , who resides at 7H Mill
street , was awakened by a noise , and found
a burglar In his closet ransacking his
trousers The burglar found him about the
same time , and It was a mater or consider-
able uncertainty which was the worst fright-
cacti Fenner declares that as the burglar
went down stairs his foot steps sounded \t
the "rr-rr-r-r- the snare drum
and when ho struck the floor It wa like the
answering "rum-b m" of the bass drum just
before the band begins to play. , The burglar
dropped the trousers and shot Into the street
with no more booty than a 20-cent cap pistol
which he picked up from a chatr. Mr. Fen-
ner's yells for help aroused Deputy United
States Marshal O. H. Bradley , ) ls next door
neighbor who valiantly shot I revolver ol
In the air once or twice and then went back
tD bed , On looking around tracks were
found wilich Indicated that the pants spe-
cIalst had tried to enter Dradley's house
and that of John L. Smith two doors awe ) .
but In each case ho had been alked by
the unwillingness of the windows to yield
to the entreaty of a rat-tal file ,
The man who didthe work Is described
as a good-sized one , Mr. Copson estimating
him at about the size of - a large elephant
He wore an ulster and a-cap. and this Is
really all that Is known about his looks , so
that there Is very little danger of anything
happening to him of an unpleasant nature.

During Ferrant.s testimony there was a
significant colloquy between counsel. County !
Attorney Nye sid that ho had expected to :
put A'dry Hayward , the onfesslg brother . I
on the stand totay , but that. Adry was not I
present as yet. Mr. Erwin sid that be
should object to Adry testifying today , as ho
wanted to have insanity experts present when
the brother gave his testimony. This state-
meat Is believed to Indicate not only a pur-
pose on the part of the defense to claim that
Adry has hereditary insanity . but also possibly -
sibly a purse In part of Adry to give his
testimony In' ' such a manner as shan lead to
that conclusion In this way he' can tell
h4s story a ho has' already told It to the
state , and yet give his brother a chance to es-
cape the gallows.
Ex-Mayor WIlliam H. Eusts was then
called to the stand and testified to having
obtained from Harry Hayward while the
latter was under polled surveillance ; some
letters . telegrams , and a statement from
Miss Glng ti Harry's relative as to some
business relations between the two. Mr. '
Erwin at once asked that ho might cross-
examine the witness to ascertain whether
these papers 'were obtained "mder duress
and In spite of -tho slake's objection was
permitted , to do , so by the court.
Mr. Eustis . said that with the police of-
cals he had subjected Hayward to an ex-
aminaton lasting some fourteen \ours : Then
Harry was released , . but , the , police Jtept
track of his viereaboutq. The next morning
after his arrest HarIY , had come Into the
mayors : office voluntariy and talked over
the crime. He told of Miss Ging's gambling
propensities and said he had some letters
and telegrams showing it . The mayor drove
with him to his apartments , where Harry
voluntarily handed over the documents
These were then offered In evldenc'e. The
telegrams were those passing between Harry
and Miss Ong when the former was gam-
blng In Chicago with her money The first
two announced winnings of $300 and $800 ,
and the third said : 'We hav lost , all . "
The statement read : "This Is to certify that
I have given Harry P. Hayward $375 to
gamble wIth , win or lose. Kate Ging. "
Then the mayor said ho went aCer Adry
Hayward and drove to the trust company ,
where out of Adry's box were secured the
notes Miss cling had sIgned. Harry did not
want to give them up but the mayor In-
slated and finally took them away with
him. The party next went to the Ilaywards'
office. to secure the life insurance policies and
other documents. While at the Ozark , Hay-
ward bad showed the qtflcers his revolver and
pointed out that It , vas' tuated all around
and was very clean. , fonrt then adjourned

about 7 o'clock by several shots . fired In
rapid succession. A crowd Immediately col-
lecte In front of L. H. Tonner's jewelry
store where the proprietor tried to explain
to them that he had been r.obbed. 119 store
Is located just off the pUblt ! square Ho was
sitting by the stove reading , when two men
came in . One had a mask on his face. The
masked man presented a revolver , and demanded -

complied with the request His revolver was

and ho made a alight move as If to get it .
but was told to keep still or he would have
his head blown oft.
While the .maslted robber was holding Ton-
ncr In this position his' comrade stepped behind
tile counter and proceeded to help himself . to
the extent of about $250.
The robbery was the wcrk of tramps. They
passed several trays of gold watches and took
eight or ten slverlno watches , some chains
and a lot of rings. They backed out of the
store and ran down the alley. Tanner ran
out and fred his revolver' and gave the alarrp
Within a few minutes the officers had
searched In every direction , but wltheut

received word that ono of the rings was
found on the dept platform at Shenandoah
The robbers must have taken the 8 o'clock
freight train In that diroction. The boldness
cf the robbery Is astounding , from the fact
that the streets were filled with people at
that time In the evening.
Important lo\n Deolion.
DES MOINES , Ia. , Feb. 9.-Speclal ( Tele
gram.-Thrc ) Important decisions were
handed down by the supreme court today.
One of thee decisions establishes a new rule
of law In Iowa , that recovery of damages
may be had for mental anguish where there
Is no phY/lcl pain or financial lose. Only
four or five stale In the union have set up
this rule and It Is expected by lawyers that
It wIll lead to 1 great deal of litigation. '
, This paso Is one against ( lie Western
Union Telegraph company' a case of gross
negligence . but juries have ben Instructed
to bring In a verdict for the' defense In stml-
lar cases In the state before The facts are
fully set forth In the synopsis of the opinion.
Judge Kinne dissented.
The second case also opens up a fruitful
field for litigation and will cause trouble for
debtors who have hope they had outlived
their creditors' persistence The deslslon ,
from which Judge Robinson dissents , extends
the life of all . judgments In courts of record
from twenty to thirty-five , years. The hold-
lag Is that the statute of limitations against
suits t revive judgments doe not begin to
run until fifteen years after the judgment
, has been rendered . the time when the law
allows such suits to be commenced.
This decision will hve a very
far-reaching effect. The other decision Is
against four salon keepers only one of
whom appealed. I Is under one of thin
strong provisions of the prohibitory law that
permit recovery of the seller of intoxicating
liquor for any damage that may result t the
purchaser from the use thereof. In this case
a man became intoxicated was thrown out
of a wagon and killed . His wife recovers
heavy damages from the men who sold him
the liquor , though site had never warned
them not to sell him liquor , nor had any
other person forbidden them to do 50.
