At 1:30 yesterday afternoon Coroner Bral

The Inqueit will be held that there may

The mayor eald farther: "Something hae
to be done, for the body cannot be burled
without a permit from the Board of Health
and the board will not wlah to grant auch
permit without a physician's certificate, or
until the matter te disposed of in a post
mortem examination. Judge Bller promlaed
Dr. Ralph yeeterday afternoon when Dr.
Ralph called at the house that be would
aummon a doctor, but did not do ao. This
morning Undertaker Burket telephoned
that the boy waa dead."
City Physician J. B. Ralph eald yester
day that ha believed the boy died of typhoid
lever. Mayor Moorea aald he felt that
something should be done and la willing to
do whatever devolves upon him, but consid
ers the matter to be rather In the province

Corroborating this Dr. Ralph said: "When
I urged Judge Eller to let me see the boy
or to call some other practitioner yesterday
afternoon he said he would It the boy grew
worse. I answered that I wtahed his as
surance with no qualifying 'If In It, and he
answered: 'All right, then,' which I nat
urally took aa definite promise. This morn
ing on my way to the house I met him com
ing from a telephone office and he told me
the child waa dead."
' A reporter eaw Judge Eller yesterday
and waa given this version of the story:
"Three weeks ago tonight my son waa out
In a wagon with a crowd of young people
and was ahowlng them how fir he could
lean back over the rear end of the wagon.
While In this position, with his feet under
the1 seat ta front of him and his back across
the rear end of the wagon box, someone In
the crowd playfully struck him In the
stomach. Me complained of pains the next
Cay and told his alater Prances of what had
eceurred. Very little attention was paid to
It and he played and ran around as usual
the next day. Saturday night of that week
he awakened at 1:30 o'clock and called to
me for asatstance, saying that his stomach
was paining him. I gave hjm Christian
Science treatment and the next day he was
up, but did not seem to take as much in
terest la affairs ss he usually did, though
he seemed to be recovered. During the
night ho suffered pain for about an hour
and a half. Sunday afternoon he again be
came sick and I called In C. W. Chadwkk,
first reader of the churoh, who slnoe that
time had charge of the case and adminis
tered treatment. The neighbors were al
lowed to be with ua at this time. They
diagnosed the case as typhoid fever, while
I called It gaatrlo fever. He seemed cold
outside and hot on the Inside. At this time
I talked with him about a physician and he
asked me if he had a doctor would he have
to take medicine, and when I told him yea
he said be wanted me to treat him.
Ho lee (or Doctors.
"He had, been secretary of the Christian
Science Sunday school and had demonstra
tions of his own, and, I think, knew more
of the science than I did. I did not have
a doctor, nor did I agree to call In a

him any good. Dr. Ralph came to eee me

hlrn It waa none of hla affair. He persisted
In trying to get me to promts to call a

him that If 1 thought there was a demand
for a doctor I would send for Dr. Davis, my
old family physician."
Judge Eller was then asked If he con

he replied, "but there wss no occasion for

Considerable Interest Is msnlfest in the
result ot the election of officers in the
Grand Army of the Republic, which will
meet at Omaha May 21. At the meeting
held laat year at Plattsmouth a new plan
for the election of officers was Inaugu
rated. Previous to that time It had been
the custom to elevate the officers In the
order of their standing, ths senior vice
commander , being elected as commander
and all officers moving up ons grade. At
the Plattsmouth meeting an attempt was
mads to overthrow this precedent and It
succeeded Insofar as the election of Junior
vice commander was concerned, the present
Incumbent, J, R. Msxon of Linden, havlug
been elected on a platform in whlcl he
pledged himself not to be a candidate for
re-election to a higher office.
Lieutenant Governor Steels was elected
senior rice commsnder before the Junior
vice commander was chosen, so It Is
claimed that hs Is In no wsy bound by the
victory of the sntl-successionlsts and that
he is therefore the logical candidate for
commander. Friends of other members ot
the order do not take this- view of the
case and Judge Lee Estelle of Omaha has
been mentioned as a candidate. The con
test between these parties Is being warmly
waged by their friends, while there Is talk
of springing a dark horse on the eve of
the election who will carry off all of the
votes not pledged to either of the recog
nizor1 candidates snd thus win the election.
The committee In charge of the arrange
ments for the encsmpment Is meeting with

afternoon. The treasurer's report was re
ferred to the auditing committee. Dr.
Bailey was made chairman of a committee
to act with the secretary In canvassing ths

The bureau of paedology was opened with
a paper on "The Physical Development of
Children," by Dr. Abbey Virginia Holmes of
Omaha, who championed exercise as a pre
ventative of disease. Dr. Leake held the
public school system the most potent fac
tor In Ill-health. Dr. H. P. Holmea said
that the nearer man gets to nature the
more perfect Is his physical condition. '
In a paper on "The Diet of Children" Dr

r Ths esrly evemug wss devoted to the
exhaustive paper on "The History of Medi
cine," which President Leaks spent six
months In preparing and which several of
the members pronounced the finest ever
