It would be difficult to conceive ef
anything more sickening than the
Union's continued boast ef what Mr.
Gest did while in congress compared
with what Mr. Cible has done so far.
When the true ft.cts are presented it will
be found that Mr. Cable will have accom
plished every thirg that could be asked or
expected of him. And what he does do
will be attributable to his own efforts,
n-t those of other citizens sent to insure
the success at the project. Already this is
shown by Mr. Cible's success in obtain
ing a half millif n for Hennepin canal
construction in t le face of the obstacle
Mr. Gest threw ii the way of construc
tion by attemptii'g to divert the course of
the canal so that it would run through
fie land of his fr end, Capt. . Robinson.
A greathearted public citizen is this Mr.
Gest who has the city's interests so much
at hefirt that be wants the city to pay
him $3,000 for improving Second avenue
in front of his res idence.

The coroner's inquest over the remains
of the late Nellie Ford was concluded on
The first witness called was Dr. W. H.
Ludewig. Ha testified to having been
called on the 16 h inst to attend the
young lady. She was suffering from
pains in the left chest. To witness she
stated that she had three teeth extracted
berore he had called, and that the dentist
who extracted them had put something
on her gums and had told her to go home
and lie down or she might die. The pa
tient had remarked to witness that she
was afraid she had blood poisoniug. She
described her pains to the witness as
having begun in the abdomen and
working upward, finally settling
in the chest. The doctor made a physi
cal examination and did not arrive at anv
diagnosis except treating her systemati
cally. The following day pains continued
in her left chest and the patient showed
6jmptoms of pneumonia. She felt bet
ter during the forenoon of the day fol
lowing, but about noon pains began to
develop on the right side of the chest.
Witness then suspected double pneumo
nia and treated the patent accordingly.
On the occasion of his next visit, which
was the following day, he found the pa
tent in about the same condition, the
pain and fever continuing with a
decline in pulse. He made the remark to
the family at the time that unless the
action of the heart could be kept stimu
lated there would be slim chances for her
recovery. Thenixtdayhe again cilled
and found his patient in about the same
condition and told Mrs. Ford that he
could do no more for the patient than be
had been doing. On his way to the
house the next day, which was his sixth
viit. witness met Dr. Bcnharui by whom
he was informed that he (Dr. Bernhardt)
had been at the Ford residence, but had
not prescribed as he remarked that the

then went to the Ford residence where
he was asked if he had not receive d a

replied that he had not. He made no
examination that day as Dr. Kinyon bad

Dr. C. B. Kinyon next tebtifl.d to
having been called in to attend MisB
Nellie Ford, and described the condition
in which he found her as regard ber tem
perature, but stated that she was in no
immediate danger of death. He made an
examination and from this concluded that
the patient was suffering from typhoid
fever. He visited her twice a day from
that time until her death. In the opinion
of the witness the shock received from
having her teeth extracted would have a
tendency to hasten the disease, she being
in a typhoid state at the time.
Dr. S. C.Plummer was next examined,
who testified to having made a pBt mor
tem examination of the body and de
scribed the finding of unmistakable evi
dences that her death was the result of
typhoid lever. No signs of any other dis
eease, that would produce fatal results
The jury after a few moments' deliber
ation returned a verdict that Nellie Ford
came to her death from typhoid fever.

wes held from her heme to St Joseph's
church at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

funeral was very largely attended and

A Mad Accident.
Theo. v Frey, the 10-year ,old son of
Mrsv M. L Fiey, residing on Moline ave
nue, met with a sad misfortune yesterday
afternoon. He,- together with a com
panion, was playing about the tracks
back of the Cable residence. They had
somewhere found a railroad torpedo and
wanted to explode it. Frey held the tor
pedo on a rail and bis companion hit it
with a heavy piece of iron. It exploded
and a flying fragment struck the unfortu
nate lad in the left eye, injuring it so
that il is feared he will lose its use entire
ly. Dr. Barth was immediately sum
moned and attended to their. jury, and
the little fellow was sent to Iowa City
this morning, where the proper treatment
will be given it. The boy had been under
treatment for his eyes for some time past,
and at the time of the accident had on a
pair of glasses, and it is feared that some
of the small particles of glass may have
entered the eye. The injury pained him
considerable last night but he bore it
