That Michael Hughes cam to hli death
du to luck of proper medical attention
was the verdict of the Jury at the Inquest
held Tuesday evening by Conner Bralley.
The Jury also recommended thnt the cor
oner make an Investigation to the rat
ion for the refusal of the authorities at
the county hoapltal to admit Hughes to
that Institution when It was known he
km sick and was sent to the hospital
Monday afternoon.
The evidence on which the verdict of the
Jury was rendered was to the effect that
Hughes received the best of treatment at
the city 1i!l by Police 6uigeon Harris, who
la n asiet.nt of the city physician. And
that Ir. Morris saved Hushes' life Sunday
morning after he had taken a quantity of
laudanum. Hughes Improved and was
placed In a cell for snfe keeping, but was
so slrk It waa thought best to send him
to the county hospital, although It was a
question If he should nt have been sent
to St. Joseph's hospital as an emergency
case at the expense of the. city.

County l'hyslclan Bwoboda in an inter

that if Hughes' death was due to neglect
It should be laid up against the city

Advocates Merrer of Two Cities by Direct
Lseiilative Enactment
Reaeat Inquiry In Soath Omaha Con
vinces II I m of Widespread
sentiment There ' for
Former City Attorney John P. Breen
was the speaker before the Real Estate
exchange at the Commercial club rooms
Wednesday noon. The attendance was
large and the Interest In Mr. Breen'a paper
nn consolidation of Omaha and South
Omaha was keen. There was nothing of
particular interest beside the consolida
tion matter before the club.
Members of the Douglas county legisla
tive delegdtlon and several city and county
officials were guests of the exchange. Mr.
Breen advocated the consolidation of
Omaha and South Omaha by direct legisla
tive enactment, regardless of a popular
e. He contended that the city la but
arm of the state and that many
precedents had been established throughout
the United States where similar cities had
been consolidated and the merger .declared
Sonth Omaha favors It.
"Recent Inquiry in South Omaha con
vlncea me that a widespread sentiment for
consolidation exists there, and laying aside
the possible and probable Interest ot poli
ticians In either city, which ought not to
count In such a matter at all, I firmly be
lieve the desire for consolidation by the
people of both cities Is more alert and
fixed now than at any time In the past,"
said Mr. Breen. "I have given some
thought to the method by which this con
s' eoIldaiVm or merger should be accom 1
pushed, and In re-lew ot the action of th
legislatures In various states I find th u
the plan has been adopted and upheld 01
uniting cities situated as Omaha and Soutu
Omaha .are, with contiguous boundaries,
by direct legislation; that Is, without vote
of the people of either city.
Draft of the Bill.
"In line with this Idea I suggest that the
legislative bill should provide:
"First, that wherever there now cxIstB.
or may hereafter exist, a city of the ftrsi
or second class, whose soundary lines arc
contiguous to the boundary lines ot the
metropolitan city, that such first or seconn
class city should be and become consolida
ted and meiged under the name of thr
metropolitan city; and that within' a lim
ited time, say ten days, after the merger,
the council ot the metropolitan city should
proceed to subdivide and redistrict the con
solidated territory. After a limited periou
an election should be held for the govern
ment of the. consolidated city.
"From an examination -of the legislation
in various states, I find that It Is not at
all uncommon for the legislature to pro
vide for the consolidation or merger o.
cities without a vote of the people o.
either city, and an analyxatton ot somi
fundamental principles shows there Is lit
tle or nothing In the Idea that there
should be a vote In either or both of such
"That consolidation of Omaha and Bouth
Omaha must ultimately take place seems
apparent to those who oppose it Just now,
for It cannot be that two cities Joined
together as Omaha and Bouth Omaha are,
will continue to be governed by two sets
of public officers.
Mr. Breen said ho thought the New York
system should obtain here. He explained
that New York wrestled seventeen years
against the unit system and finally adopted
a system whereby the assessors went out
down there had been treating him. Super
intendent Ferrer called me up and told
me there was an extra man In the am
bulance and I said I knew nothing about
the case, I told him to examine the. man
and "taxed railroad property for city and and If he was sick and a proper subject
county purposes the same as they would
ansess a man with a house, cow, horse, etc.
Mr. Breen -was tendered a vote of thanks.

Delay Causes Difficulty.
"It seems to me that the longer con
solidation Is postponed the more difficult it
will become to Justly and equitably adjust
matters ot bonded Indebtedness, taxation
and municipal properties. Fortunately Just
now an equation exlBts between Omaha and
South Omaha In this respect."

Bl-, Brawny Man Knocks Woman
Down and Then Boots Her
"You are the worst brute I've ever Been
since I've been on this bench and I've
3en some bad ones, too," was the ar
raignment by Judge Crawford In police
court Wednesday morning of Frank Kagor,
who runs a second-hand store at 2107 South
Twenty-ninth street, and who was arrested
on the charge of beating his wife last
Monday. In sentencing Kagor to ninety
days in the county Jail Judge Crawford
. "I don't know how your family la going
to live while you're in Jail, but I'm going
to give you the limit, ninety days, and I
hope It will do you good, for If I ever saw
a brute walking on two legs, you're It."
Mrs. Kagor and two small children were
In . police court ' and the wife testified,
through an Interpreter, that Kagor had
beaten her shamefully, but had taken care
to not hit her In the face, where the
bruises would show. Mrs. Kagor said her
husband had knocked her to the floor and
then kicked her prostrate body again and
again with his heavy boots until her body
was one mass of black and blue Injuries.

Relatives Meet for First Time In
Forty-live Years, Thoagh He
siding; Near By,
R. J. Root, a pioneer of Nemaha county,
Is visiting his niece, Mrs. E. Black, oa his
way home to Auburn from Onawa, la.
While at Onawa Mr. Root visited his rela
tives. Edward. Fred and M. Wlnegar, whom
he. had not seen for forty-five years. Mr.
Root drove from Illinois to Omaha In 1861
and lived near Onawa sixteen months be
fore deciding that Nemaha county, was
one of the garden spots of Nebraska. He
settled on a homestead near Auburn I'
18tl, and to this day has preserved the Uttl
log house In which he and his wlfo live.
In the day when Abraham Lincoln wa
president. Mr Root Is related to J. C.
Root, sovereign commander of the Wood
men of the World.
for the hospital to admit him, and if not
to send him back, lie said the . man had
the appearance of being a dope fiend.
"Now, If they had wanted to do the right
thing they would have called me up about
the case and allowed me to examine It be
fore It was sent to the hospital. We can't
allow every policeman on his beat to be
sending people to the hospital without noti
fying us. Hughes had been treated at the
police station. I had no way of knowing
what they had been giving him. They had
given htm something to counteract the ef
fect of the laudanum and we could not
have treated him anyway until we had
learned what troatment they had given him.
Case for the City.
"I am alone in this office and the city
physician has several assistants. ' It is not
right to ask me to do all of this emergency
work that properly belongs to the city and
Is taken care of by the city In every other
metropolitan city. Ordinarily they send
emergency, cases to- some private hospital,
especially where the party has a little
money, but because this fellow was poor
and without friends they tried to shove
bun .oft onto the county. Then beoauHe he
died under their treatment they try to lay
the blame on the county authorities."
Chairman' Ure of th county board said
he did not hear of the case until lie read of
it in fie papers.
"It is the same old controversy between
the county and the city health departments.
The county pays tl,8C0 a year In salaries
tor Its county physician's office and the
olty pays $2,000 or 3,000 for Its physician
and gives him four or five assistants. Yet
the city physician tries to push all the
work off on the county authorities. It Is a
matter that ought to be taken up by the
legislature In order that the duties and re
sponslbllltles of each office might be fixed."
Need of Kmeraeney Hospital.
Chief Donahue says the unfortunate oc
uirence only emphasizes the need for an
mergency hospital, where similar cases
an be given proper treatment.
"I don't know if the authorities at the
ounty hospital are to blame or not," said
iilef Donahue. "It seems to me that in
i case ot that kind, everyone knows the
.lty Jail is not a proper place for sick men.
However, no one In authority ever evinces
any disposition to take care of strangers
that become sick In Omaha, but In any
uvent we haven't the facilities to take care
of sick people at the Jail. In fact, we
haven't the faclltles to take care of all
the well people of Omaha. There ought
to be an emergency hospital to take such
cases to.
"Hughes' case is a repetition of many
others. In fact, we have similar cases
every week. When we telephone the city
physician to take charge of them we are
told to call up the county physician. Then
we call lip that physician and we are
told by him to call up the city physician,
and there you are. Something ought to
bo done, so we can tell where to send a
patient The Jail, when inhabited, as It
Invariably Is, by drunks and shouting
hobos, is no place for a sick man."
