Henry Matthey on Stand in
Damage Suit in Davenport
Most of the evidence taken in the
damage suit for $ru.iiiii resulting from
the death of Johannes Arp alleged to
have been caused by surgeons leaving
sponge in the wound after an opera
tion in Davenport, today was of a tech
nical nature. Dr. Henry Matthey, one
of the defendants, was on the stand
much of the time undergoing cross ex
amination. The fact that the witness
has some difficulty in making himself
clearly understood in the English lan-
uage complicated tbe situation some
what. As the case progresses the at
torneys are showing much witterness
and frequent clashes occur.

er skating is almost wholly au indoor
sport. Iu Jersey City it is an outdoor
pastime and an institution. There ev
erybody skates, even father, says the
New York Tribune.
Who introduced the fad no one
knows, but it Iuim taken firm hold on
the papulation and promises to eclipse
even baseball, tennis and croquet this
spring and summer. The comparison in
1be sale of roller skate.-: in tbe last few
weeks with tbe sale of rackets and
balls would indicate that this vill be
true. Roller skating iu Jersey City is
under the supervision and protection of
tbe police, and the favorite place for
skaters Is in Bergen avenue, one of the
best sections of tbe city.
Iu that street from Commun'paw ave
nue to Fairmont avenue, a distance of
about half a mile, every afternoon and
nlirht except Sunday wlicn tho weather
permits a continuous procession of
skaters, numbering from 'J.twjtl to 4.000
men, women nud children, can be seen
gliding back and forth on the stretch
of asphalt pavement. Many of. the
skaters come from Bloomfield, New
ark and other nearby towns.
Although children skate to and from
school. Bergen aveni; is not well tilled
with Hkaters until the evening, when
the grownups come on tbe scene. After
nightfall no wagons are permitted in
the avenue, though now and then an
interloper in the form of a bicyclist ap

Added to the thousands on tho pave

There also can lte seen tbe giddy,
fearsome young girl just learning and
tbe young couple who skate along
with hands affectionately clasped.
The peanut vender is on hand, and
occasionally a German band. At 10:30
the police stop tbe skating.
Tbe skating craze has reformed some
of the men who heretofore knew only
tho skate that comes from Jersey ap
plejack. According to a dealer In roller skates,
the craze has not yet reached its
"The week before last" said this
dealer, "we sold forty-eight pairs of
skates, and last week we sold sixty-
two pairs. There never was such a
craze like It here, and I expect to see It
spread much further."
