CITY SEFTLES A MISTAKE
Compromises Sniti that Have Given Much

STREETS' CLAIMS ARE NOW SATISFIED

Yearn AKO In Finally
Adjusted.
The city council , at a committee of the
whole , mot yesterday afternoon for the pur
pose of considering > the cases of Mrs. Mary
B. Street and her husband , A. W , Street ,
which have bcsn pending against the city
for the last ten years. The cases were set
for hearing hi the district court at the openIng -
Ing of the present term , 'but ' an agreement
was arrived atby which a continuance was
granted for ten days. The cases have given
the city a great deal of concern and there
has been a manifest desire on the part of |
previous administrations to postpone the trial
as long as possible. When City Attorney
Wadsworth assumed charge of his new offlco
ho found 'the cases fixed for trial. A cur
sory examination showed him that the city
would have great difficulty In securing evi
dence. In fact , to secure any at all It was
necessary 'to go Into the camp of the enemy '
sni use their own witnesses. This situation , "
and the character of the suits rendered It
aJvlsablo to give some attention to the prop
ositions from the planltlffs to settle the claims
by compromise. It was for the purpose of
considering these propositions for a settle
ment out of court that the council met yes
terday afternoon.
Attorney Wadeworth laid the matter care
fully and fully ibciforc the members of the
council. In 1886 the council. In auswer to
numerous petitions , ordered Fifth avenue
to < be extended and opened up to the west
line of Falrmfunt park. The survey of thi.
street led through a tract of property be
longing to 'the Streets. Attempts to agree
upcu a price to be paid to them for the
right cf way failed , and the council ordered
the property to be condemned In the usual
mannsr. A sheriff's Jury was appointed and
appraised the damages at J 1,500. Owing < to
some strange oversight at the time the
records were not consulted and the city
simply assumed that A. W. Street was the
ovraer of the property , and notices of the-
condemnation 'were ' served upon him. At
the time , however , the title to 'tho ' property
was In 'Mrs. ' Street. The error was not dis
covered. The amount of the condemnation
iprlce was paH over to Ai W. Street and
his receipt taken therefor. The amount
was not satisfactory to the 'Streets ' and an ap
peal was taken to the district court. The
case was tried and a Judgment for $2,300
was entered against the city. This judg
ment was not paid , and no particular atten
tion was paid to It until a fciw years ago
when Street Instituted mandamus proceed
ings to ccmpel the city to pay the remain
der of the Judgment. This difference would
doubtless have been paid , but shortly after
ward Mrs. Street began a suit against the
city to qulc < t her title to the land In ques
tion , alleging that she -was the owner at the
time It 'was condemned , and * asserting that
she toad never been officially notified ot the
condemnation proceedings. ' The records
were looked up and her claim was found to
be a most substantial cne. This placed the
city In the iway of Joslnj the $1,500 paid to
her husband , for there was' nothing to show
that ho bad any right to receive It and his
receipt -was valuless so far as giving the
city a claim upon the property. Later Mrs.
Street began another milt against the city
to force the cancellation of the special
taxes that were assessed against her prop
erty to pay for bringing the strest to grade.
There was some chance of 'Winning ' this suit ,
but when the council came to consider the
situation In others It was deemed advisable
to accept the proposition to settle all three
of them. The propositions forsettjfmeat
Included the payment ot the remaining portion
tion of the Judgment , $750 , and the can
cellation of the special taxes In considera
tion ot a quit claim deed from Mrs. Street.
It was agreed to accept the compromise and
the attorney ( or Mrs. Street was notified ot
the action , which will be formally approved
by the aldermen when they meet as a council
on next .Monday evening. v
Coupled with the propositions for settle
ment the attorney tor the Streets had In
cluded a suit brought against the city by
the Chicago & ( Northwestern Railway com
pany for the cancellation of about H.100 ot
sptclal taxes assessed against several lots
acquired by the company In the vicinity of
Its Broadway depot. The city believes It
has a good chance -winning this case and
refuse. } tha offer to compromise , and the
case will likely be tried at the next term of
, the district court.

was the object of the attack. The burglar
made the grievous mistake of attempting to

borhoad with her screams. The burglar waa
out ot eight before any ot tbe members of
the household or tbe neighbors could get
out to catch him. M. C. Vandovere , Mr.
Rockwell's son-in-law , who lives In the same
house , was among the first to respond to
the servant girl's frantic screams for belp ,
and in making a quick run through the dining
room came Into violent contact with the

Harry Adams , engineer ot train No. 6 on
the Chicago , Rock Island ft Pacific railway ,
which ran Into a wathout near South Bend ,
Neb. , on Sunday , has been made the re
cipient of a handsome testimonial by tbe
pocsenzcra on the train , whose lives were
saved by his coolness and courage. Mr.
Adams lives In this city , aU721 Fifth ave
nue. He returned to his home yesterday
bearing a document that contained a strong
testimonial from the passengers. The
prompt action of Engineer.Adams undoubt
edly saved the entire train from destruction ,
The train was running with Its customary
speed along the banks of the Platte river.
There had been considerable rain during the
day , but the train crew had not been advised
of any extraordinary floods. As .the train
rounded a curve Adams saw the track ahead
covered with water. Ho had but a second
to rhut oft steam and set the air brakes
with full force. This brought the train to
a sudden step , but not until the engine rap
out far enough on the weakened embank
ment to cause It to give way. Adams and
his firemen Jumped In time to save their
llvca. The enclne went off the rails with
sliding drivers , turned over and disappeared
In the river. It was followed by the express
car. but tbe remainder of the train re
mained standing on the track. The express
messengers escaped with difficulty , but were
unhurt. The Shock of the sudden stopping
of the train by the use of the brakes threw
most of the passengers from , their seats ,
but ncne of them were hurt In the least.
When they left the coaches and went to
the head of the train they realized most
forcibly the great danger they had escaped.
When they discovered that no one was 'In
jured they overwhelmed Engineer Adams
with their congratulations. Their gratitude
assumed a substantial form and a handsome
"purso was raised and presented to the en
gineer with the following , signed by all of
the passengers on the train :
We , the undersigned , desire to extend our
hearty thanks to you for your cool untl
Judicious action In the face of preat dunner ,
whereby the safety of all upon the train
was secured. Will you please accept too
accompanying slight testimonial of our high
regard.

MISSOURI VALLEY , la. , April 19. ( Spe

Cloud , a promising young lawyer ot this
state , made up his mind to seek his fortune
In the west , He left his Wife and young
son with her parents , Dr. and Mrs. While
of this place , and finally located In Sprlng-
vlllc , Utah. ( Business probably did not meet
hU expectations , for In October bis wife
received a letter from aim that he Intended
to leave Sprlngvllle for the mines across the
desert In Arizona. Since this letter Mrs.
Cloud has received no word from her hus
band , and , growing anxious , she at last wrote
to Sprlngvllle , making inquiries. Nothing
was known about htm there except that he
bad started across the dew-rt for the mines.
A prees correspondent of the Salt Lake Her
ald beard of the Inquiry , however , and men
tloned It In a letter to his paper. Shortly
after this tbe body ot a man was found in
the desert between Springvlllo and King-
man , Ariz. The man had been dead for
come tlmo and had evidently died of thirst.
Identification can only be made from his
clothes and outfit , as wild animals have de
stroyed the body and even carried away
many ot the bones. The editor of the MoJave -
Jave County Miner hao written to Mrs.
Cloud and told her ot this discovery and ex
pressed hid opinion that the body Is .that
of her husband. The clothing , etc. , will be
sent here and the Identification made , If

'that ' unless the executive committee of the

be no national stock exhibit at tbe exposi

EXPECT A.AUVli'HSli ' DECISION
'Railroad ' * Ireinr > for Demoralisation
of Fr el will Ttiitcn.
CHICAGO. April 19. The railroads have
tbe opinion that the supreme court , will this
week declare that the Joint Traffic associa
tion Is an Illegal organization , and tbey are
already proceeding to manage their affairs
without any reference to It or Its orders.
Instructions wtre quietly passed around
among the railroads to contracting agents
today that they need' ' pay no attention to
the rules of the Joint Traffic association in
securing their 'business ' , and the result was
that there was a lively general scramble for
business in which contracts were made for
handling grata , between Chicago and the
Atlantic seaboard as low as 10 cents.
This demoralization appeared In the ab
sence ot any authentic Information that a
decision adverse to tbe Joint Traffic aesocla-
tlon had > been rendered , and it Is expected
that It will become worse If the decision
should be cs much against the roads as
to rnticlpated.
The roais admit that tbey have no direct
Information as to what the decision will be ,
but at the same time they eay that tbey
bavo no doubt ttiat It will declare the asso
ciation to be .Illegal.
WHEN A MAX IS i'AST FORTY.
The Greater Cnre He Should Take ot
HI * I'hyricnl Well-Uctnsr.
The Medical Record prints a synopsis of
an Inteicetlng paper read by Dr. Henry F.
Walker of New York ait tbe meeting ot the
Practitioners' society. The subject that ho
tcok for dlccuts'on. Is one that must oome
home to all but these who die young. It
was counsel to patients , especially In < the
latter part of active life.
line doctor said that there waa much trutl
in itihe adaze that after 40 a man should
be bis own physician. Experience should by
that time teach htm what he can and can
not do. The difficulty Is to understand him
self. Says the paper :
"When a youtlh , he condtders hlmsoll
mature , while ethers were callow ; at a
later doite he calls himself young , though
tbe contemporaries ore old. The harden
thing that ho Is compelled to realize Is tu < i <
changes occur in himself ; that a thing which
he has heretofore done with Impunity may
In 'time become ( hazardous In repetition. The
morn'.ng co'.d plunge , the going without an
overcoat , the refusal of extra footwear any
or all may become hazards to health. It Is
often quite difficult to persuade an ogci
person or bis friends that exercise In the
open air Is not absolutely essential > to well
belngror that the fireside la more invigorat
ing than the cutting wind of a brilliant
winter day. They quote experience against
you. Having always done a thing with ad
vantage , they can do It etlll , unmindful that
the personal equation has changed , awl
that an element nnce a friend to buffet may
become a foe that kills. Of the elements
the one mott harmful to the age ] Is cold. "
Here Is something that tbe frceh air fiends
will do well to read and ponder :
"To the old as well cs to the very young ,
a mild hcait for the sleeping room la better
than the ( haphazard temperature given by
an open window. That he bos always slept
with the window open , co matter whit the
weather , IB boasted by a man who demands
an overcoat and a fur cap In waking hours ,
without oeolng his Inconsistency. There Is
a greatt deal of nonsense talked about the
teed of frejb ( moaning open ) air In tbe
sleeping rcora. You can constantly cherish
a catarrh with It. Nansent in his & : epng !
bag , baa proved that ono can survive and
thrive with a mcdtcum of It. "
Dr. Walker eays that ttoe chief hazards
of the man who has reached the time when
he should be his own physician are Internal
rather than extend.
"The willing worker hai always enough
to do for otihcre. Each year add * to re
sponsibilities which he assumes through his
own or others' necessities , or by choice
through ambttloi. And each year gives him
a body a little less in strength by which
to carry them. The change jray be erllght ,
but It is actual. The consequence Is thai
with Increased work and weakened body ,
ad ! which Is harmful is often toughit , Tbero
ara two tiblnga which threaten such a roan's
comfort : half or wholly recognized dimin
ished physical strength to do Increasing
work , and the inability to get abundant
sleep or enough sleep for full refreshment. '
But the gist of the sermon 1 * found in th :
paragraph , which ought to be read with dote
attention !
"I Ihlnk that the great eat hazards to a
man's character are likely to come after he
1,11 paiscU forty-fire years of age. He hts
xronio moro lenient In his Judgment ot
others , and Is likely to to moro Indulgent to
ilmself. Tojppeak of things .wholly physical ,
10 has then the temptation to both stlcnu-
anti and narcotics ( or hypnotics ) In the
highest degree. And those temptations
como 'to him when he Is acting , chiefly , as
his own physician. If a young fellow be
comes a drunkard before he Is thirty you
can usually find for him the pica ot hcrcd-
ty. 'But there Is many a man who his
> assfd thirty years and forty safely , -who In
he next decade succumbs to alcohol because -
cause bo needs a draco to help Mm trans
act the business -which the cloie work ot
ircvlous years has brought to htm. He
akcs to alcohol not In the convivial' way ,
jut to help him over a dard place ; and ho
takes It In Just the worst manner , without
tccompinrlng food , and when food would
Ikcly bo distasteful or even harmful , by
icrvous preoccupation The afternoon drink
to tide him over a weary day Jotis to Itself
earlier potions rotien business presses , and
the morning cocktail before It has begun.
> And all this Is due to the overwork given to
.he man whose established character has
jrought him to 'tho front. If a man Basses
In safety the time when strength declines
without hts realizing the fact and reached the
lime when he must acknowledge It , he Is all
rlgtit.
"If It too not alcohol alone that Is used It
Is alcohol with a subtle stimulant rr.oro
deadly , a cocoa or a kola , which o'j"ciir'"i
the Immediate effect of the medium. .
"Tho other hazard Is the use of hypnotic ? .
Of course these are of various degrees of
potency and harmlcssncss. But you will
find that the man who consult ? you for
insomnia knows the list and has tried them
all before he has' applied to you. "
In view of such conditions the doctor
thinks that often the counsel given by the
physician must bo rather that which tbo
priest is supposed to give.
The paper was freely discussed and In
modification of what ho had said Dr. . Walker
added that a man of 40 or over wea very apt
to bo better for the use ot stimulants taken
with bl8 meals , but It was the drinking be
tween meals that did the harm.
