at Every Pol at ! ria the
Whole Thlae; gait
m a meeting ,that wa so warm It fairly I
listed the Board of County Commissioners
yesterday selected County Surveyor Ed
quint, R. B. Howell, a former city engineer,
and W. Scott King, engineer at the stock
yard. In South Omaha, to act, If they will,
the commute to Investigate the fair-
neas of the price of $14,000 that the county
paid for the county poor farm bridge.
, Before the matter waa disposed ot there
vu an exchange of personalities tbat were
!very blunt, and O'Keeffe, who U chairman of
the committee on bridges and who started
thl Investigation, but who was not allowed
.Ms preferred representation on the inqulr
4ng board, declared: "I'll protest tbls ac
tion. It you mean to whltewaah this thing
'Jet's know It at the start. I'll be here when
'that report comes !n If I'm not shot first."
O'Keeffe proposed the Inquiry on June
tl and with some bravado the board Voted
at once that the bridge committee should
elect an engineer to do the Investigating.
, Harte and Connolly, the other members ot
the committee, met with O'Keeffe, Its
chairman, yesterday, but the three could
not agree on any one engineer.
Three Kagrlaeer Needed
It therefore came up before the board
t this meeting upon O'Keeffe'a motion to
take the resolution from the bridge com
mittee and let the board do the selecting
f the Investigators. Hs aatd that the com
talttee had agreed on three names Tues
day, but as the resolution provided for only
one engineer and the committeemen
couldn't atTee on that one, nothing was
. Harto moved tbat the board select three
engineers and the motion carried
. Then the storm came, for the other four
'members of tho board allied themaelves
.gainst tho Inquisitor from South Omaha
and kept eft the Investigating oommlttee
the 6nly man that he asked to have placed
on It It was then that O'Keeffe made
bio protest and his reference to the white
crashing process. He was so Indignant that
Ills voice went to thunder pitch and quite
orowd was attracted to the chamber.
'. The thing waa over almost before the
Spectators could realise how It hap
pened. Ostrom moved that the county
urveyor act as one member of the com
mttteo and all voted aye. O'Keeffe proposed
'the name ot J. E. House and Harte sec
nded the motion, but when the vote was
taken Connolly, Ostrom and Chairman
Jlofeldt voted no and the motion waa lost.
Majority Names Its Mea.
O'Keeffe realised what was happening as
tho vote proceeded, but was powerless.
When Harte proposed the name ot W. 8.
Xing ail otners voted eye.
Omahan thundered nay. When Connolly
proposed the nam of R. B. Howell tho
performance was repeated. Connolly had
Wtvitn aa tha reason for DDOslna the selec-
tlo. of House the statement of O'Keeffe
that he bad seen House in re gar a 10 me
matter. Connolly said: "O'Keeffe Insisted
ea this particular man In committee meet
ing, but I don't believe that when mem
tt makes charge he should be permitted
to go out and seleot his engineer and bave
Jt air cut and dried."- '" - - -
O'Keeffe's retort was that this "excuse
was thin as water and 'that water, to hla
certain knowledge, la pretty thin.
Iaatractlona for Committee.
! Wbsn the matter of the committee's
makeup had been disposed of,' Harte,
though not the chairman of the committee,
offered a resolution of Instructions to be
given the Investigator, and these were
'adopted with only O'Keeffe dissenting. It
:was during the discussion of these that
'Connolly and Ostrom had a tart exchange
with the recalcitrant South Omahan. An
musing feature of the momenta ot violent
belligerency was that while Connolly was
very moist, Ostrom very white and O'Keeffe
very red with the heat of their discussion.
the Inexorable Peter the Silent pulled out a
warrant book and proceeded calmly with
bis signing. The discussion might have
been . the recitation of a Latin class for
II the concern the chairman betrayed.
The resolution offered by Harto and
adopted by the board instructs tha Investi
gator to examine the contract ot July 13,
1901, and Interpret the contract price that
should have been paid Drake for the bridge,
la tho determining process they are to ex
amine the original yearly contract between
the county and Drake on behalf of the
Staadard Bridge company, dated July It,
1900, and tho plans and specifications at
tached; tho order tbat tne board gave
Drake Juno ft. 1901; the reaolutioa the
accepted on July SI, 1901." The Investiga
tors are to examine the bridge Itself and
board passed July IS, 1901; the "modified
plans and specification, for such bridge,
prepared and submitted to the board for
their approval la accordance with the order
f June 14. 1901, and by them approved and
determine If It complies "with the modified.

O Keetfe had moved that the eountr elerk
bo tnetructed to give the Investigator a
certified copy of the records of the bridge,
but hi, motion was without second. When
tha Instructions were read O'Keeffe said:
"Thoee modified plans are new to me. It
there was any modifying It was done after
tho bridge wis completed. There Is noth
ing In the records about them."
Oetrom waa on his feet with bound end
stood through the rest of tho tete-a-tete,
part ot the time addressing tho chairman
and part ot tho time shaking hi fingers at
O'Keeffe. He aald: "Those modified plana
wero mado before any work waa done. Tou
simply didn't discover tbm In the record."
O'Keeffe How coulc. I when there waa ao

O'Keeffe Why couldn't I find It on the

O'Keeffe If this thing goes Into the

O'Keeffe It's funny that nobody looked

Connolly I can explain that. We tried
to find the reoord after you refused to
attend a committee meeting, at which wo
hoped to go over this matter and And out
what waa wrong.
O'Keeffe And I refused becauae you had
bridge man there and wanted to find
out what Information I bad. I am under
$5,000 bond to thia oounty and am re
aponslble for what I take.
Ostrom The county clerk la under bond
and la responsible for those books. Tou

I came to Omaha to confer with Pivl-
Ion Superintendent Baxter and Superin
tendent of Transportation Buckingham
about three local grievances and am la no
way connected with this strike of th
shopmen, nor am I here regarding any
atrlke or trouble of tho trainmen. I did
not confer with Mr. Grace of the Machin
ists' union or any other atrlke leader, nor
will I while In tho city, I have purposely
avoided meeting any ot the strike leaders
becsuse I did not want to prejudice my

Facino and tneir superiors, tne original
report of which camo voluntarily from an
old and active employe of tho company,
was afterward confirmed in substauce by
an executive official of tho road and
affirmed by numerous other railroad men.
Mr. Maoomber says he knows nothing. He
professes to believe that all such reports
are false and that the men who have au
thorised them and confirmed them are not
In touch with the situation.
Mr. Maoomber expects to finish his bus-

Colonel Henry S. Turrlil, deputy sur

has arrived In Omaha to take atatlon at

June. "When I left there," said he, "the
cholera was becoming exceedingly difficult
to handle. There were many case and
the ateamer upon which I left wss quar
antined for five days before being per

There I really no danger of bringing
the dlseaae from tbe Islands to the United
States, as th system of quarantine avd
disinfection Is as near perfection aa pos
sible. Observation ta hundreds ot rases has
proven beyond doubt thst all cases of In
fection will develop within three and one
halt days, but for ths sske of certainty
tho quarantine period haa been made five
days. All ships with psssengers from In
fected districts are tela for five days, re
gardless ot the conditions of their pss
sengers' health. If cholera develops dur
ing tbat time the boat must remain for five
day after th laat case baa been disposed
of and the passengers and clothing must be
disinfected. From Manila the boats go to
Nagasaki, Japan, where the Japanese gov
ernment ha one of the beat quarantine
aystema In the world. It any caaea should
develop between Manila and Japan the boat
would be quarantined for five daya beyond
tho uaual time, but even under present
conditions It must be quarantined for five
days. If cases should develop between
Japan and the United States the quarantine
officers at San Francisco or Seattle would
tako measures to prevent the appearance
Ot the dlseaae, in thia country, ao you see
thst alL that human endeavor can do to

The Japanese quarantine system Is a
revelation even to members of the United
States army, who know something about
the subject themselves. Upon arriving at
Nagaaakl the boats sre stopped and all pas
senger are required to enter the disinfect

ing company here. Th Grant company
bid $1.60 per square yard for laying asphalt
and 75 cents a yard for concrete base.
After considering this lone bid the council
decided to reject It, but neglected to direct
th clerk to advertise again. A comparison '
of figures waa, made yeaterday, wbea It
was discovered that In 1900 the city paid
11.60 per square yard for asphalt and 75
cents for concrete. Laat year the bid for
asphalt waa $1.40 and th concrete the
same as In former years. It Is understood
that In order to have the street repaired
thl year the council will at Its meeting
Monday night roconalder It actloa and
will award the contract to th Orant com
pany at the bid submitted this year.
Property owner on Twenty-fourth street
ara clamoring for repair to th atreet a
well a other, and a It appeara th coun
cil ran do no better at this time, the Orant
offer will have to bo accepted. All ot tha
efforts of the city street department to
properly repair the street have proven In
effective, In fact a detriment to permanent
repairs, and so the city has given up the
Idea of filling in the hole with broken
ton and cement. A estimated now the
cost of the repairs will run close to $1,000.

NEW YORK. July 80. The funeral of the
lata Chief Rabbi Jacob Joseph, head ot
the orthodox Hebrew of th United States,

body was taken to each ot the six syna

ices were held.
When the procession was passing the

In Brooklyn, th employe of th factory
emptied palls ot water from th window
of an upper floor onto the spectators
maased upon the sidewalk. Pall after pall,
