commutation book on tha bridge line.
Mr. McLean on walking toward Omaha
between the ralla of the right-band track.
The car waa running at high apeed and the
fender caught the man from behind about
the height of the knee. He waa thrown
backward against the front of the car, hla
head striking the top of the fender and
bending the iron elate back out of place.
Thla blow killed him and the body waa then
thrown up Into 'he air and to one aide. As
the car whined by pasaengera on the rear
platform saw the body In the light from
the car windows. It fell in the ditch fifteen
feet from the track, where It waa found.
The head waa crushed 1n the back, but
the face waa not mutilated. Aid was called
from the car barn at Twenty-ninth atreet
and Manager Tarklngton was quickly ofl
the scene with a corps of aaalstanta. Cor
oner Treynor was notified and be aent Undertaker-Cutler
out for the body, which

of the passeagers thought the car had run
over a piece of wood or a stone, till Ponce

thought on a haaty examination that some
bones In the body had been broken.
"He waa walking alow along the tracks,
cloae to the outside rail," said Motorman
Poncelow. "I saw him sort of ataggar Just
as tbs car came on him. He paid no at

Council Meats Again, but Fails to Select
FOUR MORE BALLOTS WITHOUT CHOICE
District Caart Enjoins Cleric Irons Is-

dates Draw Strawa.
Still the city council cannot coma to an
agreement, either aa to a temporary or a
permanent chairman. There waa another
meeting last night with all members pres
ent and a good bouse.
As soon aa the members were aeated the
usual gang of "boosters" from the outside,
beaded by some former members of the
Council, swarmed around the tables and
talked confidentially to the councilman.
Then tho first ballot waa taken. It stood
three for Adklna and three tor Queenan. In
all four ballota were taken and the result
waa tha same in each. At the conclusion ot
the fourth ballot Mylea Welsh suggested
that the council taks a recess until next
Monday night and thla waa agreed to.
The aesslon waa not without Incident,
however, as Deputy Sheriff Roach served a
couple of wrlta oa City Clerk Shrlgley issued
by Judge Keyaor at the Instigation of John
Mclntlrs. The first order served was one
restraining the clerk from issuing a cer
tificate of election to Patrick J. O'Connor
of the Fourth ward. This, It waa reported,
the clerk bad Intimated he might dq In or-
dear to break the deadlock and bring the
proposed contest to a focus. The other
order waa one restraining the elerk from
serving notice upon Mclntlrs and O'Connor
to appear at the city offices thia afternoon
and draw atrawa for the position. Each of
the contestanta received the same number
of votes and aa tha old council adjourned
sine dls without settling tha dlsputs the
question ot which one Is entitled to the teat
seems to ba in doubt.
New Ordlaaaea Needed.
The city billposter ordinance which
Former Mayor Kelly pushed through tha
recent council, la considered defective by
those in authority and it was asserted yes
terday that another ordinance would have
to be passed by the present council with a
number of changes before It would stsnd
the test of the courts. When Kelly went
out ot office his billposter went with him
and ao now there Is no city billposter. Sev
eral persons have made application to
Mayor Koutaky for the place, but ao one
will be appointed until the ordinance Is so
amended that It will be be declared legal
by the courts. It la possible that with
others matters to attend to the council may
take Ita time before getting around to thla
ordinance, as there never seemed to be any
great need of a city billposter until Kelly
discovered that ne wanted to make a place
tor a an out ot a job.
