Fatal Accident at fewlft'a.
Another fatal accident occurred at Swift
and Company's packing plant last night.
John Wesley Daly was crushed to death
at 6 p. m. by being wound up on an elevator
shaft. Some part of the mechanism had
gone wrong and he and a companion,
Thomas Thorgensen, a millwright, had gone
up to the top among the shlve wheels to
make repairs. In some manner he was
caught In the, revolving shaft and whirled
around several times until hU body was
practically beaten to a pulp. Ilia libs,
arms, legs and head all received injuries
each of which would most certainly have
resulted fatally. An effort was made to
aave the man's life, which was still flut
tering when he was extricated. . lie was
taken to the South Omaha hospital and his
wounds partially dressed when it was found
that life had departed.
Paly has been living at Twenty-third snd
L streets, at the lodging house of J. J.

a son of about 8 years, but he was divorced
from his wife, who lived at Murray, Neb.

World, being the counsel commander of
Camp No. 211. He carried an Insurance
on his life. His son's name In Harold E
Daly. He has two brothers In Bouth On'.aa i.

expected that an Inquest will be held to
discover the cau?e of the death. The de-,

In progress la unexplained. The funeral
will probably be arranged for Sunday aft
ernoon under the auspices of the Woodmen
of the World. Later notice will be given.
Paving at Highland Park.
A movement is on foot for the placing of
pavemepts around '. Highland park, one of
the grealeat drawbacks to an otherwise
beautiful little park being the condition of
the adjacent streets. Of late several peo-t
pie who have the attractiveness of the
park most at heart have begun an agitation
for paving. A petition haa been culetly
circulated seeking to secure signers from
enough of the property owners to put the
project through. It Js a . question with
which the Highland Park Improvement
club will Interest Itself , through several of
Its autumnal sessions. - The next meeting
of that club will be Thursday of the com

NOVEL PLAN JT0 MAKE PILES
Jew Scheme of Conatraietlna Con
cretes to Be laed la Rome
A novel method of constructing concrete
piles will bo used In Rome Miller's new
hotel building at Fifteenth snd Jackson.
The method Is entirely new to Omaha,
though ths Inventor, A. A. Raymond,
worked out his plans here. Mr. Raymond
was formerly an Omaha contractor, but
about six years ago he went to Chicago,
where he perfected his scheme and be
came the head of the Raymond Concrete
Pile company, which Is doing the work on
the new hotel.
The plan consists In encasing a collapulble
Iron core with a heavy sheet 'Iron shell
and driving it into the ground from twenty
to thirty feet. The core is then collapsed
and pulled out, leaving the shell In the
ground, which Is filled with concrete. The
work can be done rapidly and Just as
cheaply or a title more cheaply than
wooden pile work and has the advantage
of being practically indestructible, while
the wooden pier is liable to rot In the
course of time. The concrete pile will sus
tain three times the weight a wooden one
will bear. About S0 of these piles will be
driven for the Miller building and work
will begin on the piling next week.
Mr. Raymond first tried his plan on one
of the Transmlsslsalppl exposition build
ings, but it failed, as he could not get the
core out of the ground without Injuring
the sheet iron shell. He set to work to
devise the collapsible core and success fol
lowed. The concrete pile Is used exten
sively in the east, but has never been
used in Omaha before. The work here Is
in charge of T. E. Rlckard, superintendent.
NEW LIGHTS ARE POPULAR
Eleetrtelty for Street Pwrweses Is
GlTingr Satisfaction la Resi
Reports from the outlying districts re
ceived by the city electrician indicate that
the new electric lighting is giving gen
eral satisfaction. The gasoline tamps
burned for the last time on the night of
July 31. Not a single one remains on ths
streets of the city. The amount spent for
them Is now paid out for the new electric
lighting. One especially warm testi
monial came from a street railway motor
man, who gets up at 6 o'clock , tn ths
morning to milk the cow before going to
the car house. He believes ' Ms rural
labors will be much pleasanter of dark
winter mornings under ths rays of tfcs
nr arc lsmp near tils home.
