M RESPONSIBLE FOR ICE
Verdict Believe City of Liability for j
Aocidaata on Slippery "Walk.
ABOUT TWO HUNDRED CLAIMS PENDING
City Attornrr la tinted Over ei
of Trial la the Personal lajary
Case of AaaraBtlae
'vYfcitteiBore. .
alt
Some $200,000 represented In about 200
claims for personal injuries against the
city were to an extent hinged upon a case
in the district court that has Just been won
by City Attorney Connell on behalf of the
municipality. It was tbe suit of Augustine
Whittemore for $7,260, and the city attor
ney characterises it as "the pioneer suit
involving the liability of the city for sim
ply ice on the streets." Mr. Connell Is
greatly elated over the victory, as tbe case
was important and unique in many ways.
He did not oCer a particle of testimony nor
swear a witness, but fought the case upon
evidence submitted by the plaintiff, secur
ing a verdict from the jury by arguing that
it is not right or just to hold tbe city re
sponsible for any icy and slippery condition
of the streets due to climatic changes
which cannot be guarded against. He said:
"Augustine Whittemore, a traveling aud
itor for an eastern concern and boarding
at the Merriam hotel, started to come
down town to his place of business on tbe
morning of February 12, 1902. While walk
ing along tbe sidewalk on Twenty-fifth
street, near Famam, he slipped and fell on
the try, sllpjery footing, breaking both
bones of his right leg midway between tbe
knee and tbe ankle. He waa removed to
his hotel, and was not able to be about on
crutches until along in April. He sued to
recover all expenses tnrurred and for Tbe
mental and physical pain suffered.
Dne to Cllsaatle Chaavea.
"The trial was carried on for three days
before Judge Read and a Jury in tbe dis
trict court, and was bitterly fought by tbe
city on the ground that tbere was no lia
bility on tbe part of the city by reason
of the Icy condition of its sidewalks occa
aloned by melting snow and water freezing,
thereby making an icy surface. We took
the position that tbe condition was due lo
climatic changes, and not to any fault or
negligence on tbe part of the city. I ar
gued that Whittemore had the aame ripht

up against physical conditions that caused
his accident and injury.
"This is tbe first case that has been tried
that involves liability solely oa the ground
of the icy condition of the streets. Tbe
photographic department of the city again
proved its value, as we were able to pro
duce a picture of the spot taken on the
afternoon of tbe day of tbe accident. Tbe
importance of tbe case is shown by tbs
fact that we have new about 200 claims for
daniBfBB auatittntd in th aama nav
c , .. !
this and last winter. Tbe sum total of
those claims is mors than tl'Ob.OOO."

in failure to sell these certificates in fu

SHERIFF TELLS OF
HANGING
Kai-a He la tssviaera It Is Most II a
rnane Method of Capital
Pontsbnaeat.
Sheriff John Pcwer. Deputy James Roach
and Jailer Thomas Flynn returned Friday
night from lincoln, where tbey witnessed
the hanging of Gottlieb Niegenfind Fri
day. The sheriff arises to remark thst the
report that he was on the scaffold during
the execution is untrue. It wasn't his
hanging, and be didn't participate in it. be
rays, but stood bai-k among the thirty
other spectators, and did Junt what they
did looked on and breathed hard.
"The only ones on tbe scaffold beside the
prisoner were three guards and tbe clergy
man." he said. "Tbe guards pressed the
buttons, which released the trap, but no
man will ever know which pressed first and
sprung tbe locks. A Lincoln paper stated
that Niegenflnd's bosom hesved. and there
was a rebound of the body, but this isn't
true. Everything worked so well thst the
man died without the twitch of a muscle,
and, whereas I used to hsve a horror of
hanging, I am now convinced it is the most
humane method of capital punishment that
Is possible, and my old horror is removed.
Niegenfind came from his cell laughing and
Joking In a Quiet wsy, mounted the scaf
fold unaided, and It was all over in an as
tonishingly short time."
