but not before he had been fatally burned.
The shock of his Injury was so grest that
he was semi-conscious until he died. The

City Coaacll Proceedings,
The session of the city council last night
was one of Inquiry largely, but the busi
ness of the session amounted to little. Sev
eral belated reports by the city officials
were read and received.
The contract and bond of Hugh Murphy
for the pavement of E atreet was approved,
and the limit placed at July 15 for tha
completion of tha paving.
A resolution waa adopted recommending
to the Douglas county delegation to the
legislature to take all possible steps to give
the city of Omaha power to settle up the
differences between that ctiy and the
Omaha Water company, so that a better
water aervlce might at once be installed
in South Omaha. The city has at present
only one thlrty-slx-lnch main to aupply
water. This la conaldered Inadequate for
the preaent needs, and indicates a serious
condition In the near future.
A resolution was passed by the city coun
cil waiving all immunity from damage
which may fall by reason of the opening
of the Incomplete Q street viaduct. This
Is In accord with the recent action of the
city council and the mayor In opening the
viaduct to pedestrians.
The stipulated fund of $100 per month has
been voted for several years to the South
Omaha hospital for the care of city pa
tients, was cut off last night by a resolu
tion, and it was provided that the city pay
for the charity caeca in the hospital at the
regular rate, aa they may hereafter arise.
It Is likely that thla will In the end be
found the more expensive plan.
A resolution waa passed to annul the
contract for the construction of the N
street gulch sewer, , provided the con
tractors do not proceed with the woik in
earnest before March 1.,.
Some discussion aad . two resolutions
bearing on the ereoUan.ef the temporary
polea for tho trolley -wires over the 4
street viaduct occupied the attention of the
council for a time, The object of the
resolutions was to,, hasten the construction
of the poles so that traffic by street cars
over the viaduct could be commenced as
early aa possible.
An Inquiry , waa instituted to ascertain if
the Independent Telephone company in
tended to complete its conduit system in
the city and to erect at Twenty-fifth and
M streets an exchange in accord with the
terms of Its franchise. . Two yesrs are per.
mltted. One full . year haa elapsed and
only one conduit ha been laid.
A resolution was carried, asking that a
light be located over - the grade crossing
at Twenty-fifth and U atreeta and that a
flagman for night and day aervlce be sta
tioned there by the Union Pacific Railroad
Chief John Brigga made his monthly re
port on electric lights out. It waa a long
repo'rt covering the recent atorm period.
A complaint of the water aervlce by one
of the local labor organizations waa read.
The appraisers for the adjustment of

that the Injurlea were noc necessarily dan

NEW SYSTEM INTERESTS MANY
Harrlir nn'a xer Men with Shonlder
Straps Watched la
Mechanical and operating officials sll
over ths country are watching with Interest
the Ha.Ylman experiment which is being
tried on the Union Pacific of changing the
tltlea of master mechanics, resident engi
neers, trainmasters and traveling engineera
to "assistant superintendents." While th
previous duties, of these officials are not
changed, but other duties sre assigned
from time to time. In view of the Harrl
man ayatcm of atandardlrlng the roads
under his control, the results and effects
of the system are being carefully watched.
When the plan was stsrted the object waa
to facilitate business, promote all around
training, to etrengthen the operative and
maintenance departments and to develop
capacity and resourcefulness.
The west trains Its men to be on the Job
whenever there is trouble and not to work
so much from the deak as does the tern
railroad roan, and the reult ia that west
ern railroad men always make good when
sent east, and the easterncra fall down
often when put on a hard piece of work In
the weat. The problem of eecurtng a belter
underatandlng between the transportation,
the engineering or roadway and the me
chanical departments Is also being worked
out by the new plan.
As one official explained It: "There la al
ways danger that a railway operative who
la kept long at a desk will develop the
academic tendencies of office government.
For this reason the senior assistant super
intendent, after being kept at headquarters

other duties for which" he la fitted, and
some other assistant superintendent will
take charge at headquarters, snd,- while
there, will be senior assistant. Thus, each
of the assistant superintendents, who form
erly had the various titles of division engi
neer, master mechanic, tralnmaater, etc.,
may, perhaps, serve in rotation at .head
quarters and get experience in supervising
the operattng; of the entire division. Esch
will know elf about either the transporta
tion or the mechanical or the engineering
departments of the divslon, according to
hla apeclal training,- and something about
some of each of the other departments." '
