Judge Thornell nnd the attorneys who are
conducting the Dccrc , Wells & Co. damage
suit against the 'Milwaukee Hallway com
pany kept the judicial mill grinding at a
lively rate yesterday , and although cour
adjourned at 5 o'clock a multitude of wlt-
rus.ics had been examined , The testimony
Is along the same lines followed In the prc
vlous trial , nnd this enables the attorneys
to push rapidly the examination ot wit
nesses. The Insurance companies that arc
backing the prosecution have retained S. B

after thn Interests of several of the com
The testimony yesterday referred alto
gether to thu direction ot the wind , am
during the day the court and Jury were
troatfJ to several learned disquisitions 01
meteorological matters. L. A. Welsh , loca
forecast olllccr from Omaha , was on the stain
during the forenoon and exhibited the gov
ernment charts and records showing the
direction of the wind during the afternoon
and the day of December 13. He Is also a
witness for the defense and testified at the
G. D. Sweczy , professor of meteorology In
the University of Nebraska at Lincoln , was
on the stand for some time and gave a
technical but Interesting dissertation on the
subject of wind and weather. He explained
the accepted scientific theory as to the
causes producing winds nnd gave a lengthy
description of the vagaries or the breeze In
this locality. He declared that the windier
the day the more uncertain It was as to the
course ot the winds. The wind never blows
steadily nnd harJ rrom any positive direc
tion. Strong winds come In gusts and these
gusts will be found keeping the weather
vanes on the highest steeples dancing around
to keep In line with the current. The
winds might come In a general direction for
several hours at a time , but the great air
waves would be found coming from points
varying several degrees from this general
direction. Ho explained that this Is due to
the topography or the country and declare !
that largo buildings had a corresponding
modifying Influence. The testimony of bctsi
of the weather experts was to the clfecl
that on the afternoon In question the wind
uns blowing from the south southeast and
might have varied a few points cither way
during numerous Intervals.
A score of witnesses , who were chiefly
citizens living In that portion of the city
lying east of the site of the llro and many
blocks north , testified that they were obliged
to light to protect their property from the
embers that arose from the burning build
ings and uero carried by the wind In some
nstances n mile and' ' a half. One witness
: cstllled that the blazing embers fell as far
east as the High school cut. Two witnesses ,
Frlsby and Reed , gave some material testl-
nony concerning the origin of the fire. They
wore In the vicinity at 6:30 : , and while Heed
was talking to Frlsby his attention was at-
ractcd by seeing a woman passing along
he street In front of the Wler-Shugart wari -
louse ston and peer Into the windows. He
saw a nickering light shining through the
window and made an Investigation. When
ie looked Into-the window ho saw the floor
of the warehouse was afire at a point about
flvo feet from the wall on the Main street
side and about eighty-three feet from the
south end of the structure. The fire ap-
learcd' ' to bo breaking through the floor. He
; &vo the alarm at once , but within a few
minutes the Shugart building was a masi
of flames outside and Inside.
/The prosecution has about 100 witnesses to
examine. Judge Thornell left for his home
n Sidney Immediately nrter the adjournment
of court fqr the purpose of spending the
Sabbath with his family.

Olio Councilman I.OokN Koriinnl to u
I/lvrly CiiiiiitiilK" .
"The city council will this season have a
greater number of petitions 'presented from
citizens desiring to have their streets paved
or repaved than ever before In the history
of the city , " remarked a member of the
council yesterday. "I have been making a
rip over town for the purposeof ascertaln-
ng the condition of the street pavcuionts.
n many places the condition Is simply ap
palling. The frost is beginning to go out
of the ground and the streets covered with
old cedar blocks a'rc almoet Impassable.
Vlten all of the frost Is gone the bottom will
drop out and driving will be almost out of
he question. Driving for pleasure has long
Inco ceased on many of these streets , which
are built up with the finest and most costly
residences In the city , but In a few weeks
aAout all other kinds of truffle will cease.
This condition will certainly create a de
mand for now pavements that will be
tronger than any plea for econo'my or cry
of hard times , and the council will bo asked
o order new paving. Time has overcome
ono objection to taking up the old blocks.
The promise was inade when the wooden
lavements were laid that they wouU last for
en years. There- are very few streets In
own where a longer period has not elapsed
Ince the pavement was laid , and the promise
or the contractors and the city has been
more than fulfilled. There nro over eleven
nlles of this kind of paving In the city , and
t Is fair to presume that a portion of the
Itlzcns who live along the untidy streets
vlll ask the city for new pavements. It is
alFo certain that these requests wUJ bo
; rnnted In most Instances. The rule adopted
> y the council that no pavement shall be
rdored until a majority or the taxpayers In-
crestcd have signed the petition asking for
tAvill be observed , but under the rulings of
lie supreme court the city has absolute
) owcr to order the work done oven if all or
ho property owners oppose It. It may be
hat this power will be used on some of tlio
treats where the old paving has become
uch a nulsanco that it can bo no longer
"Brick paving Is the thing and we are
atUfied that the best quality of brick pave
ment can be laid this year at the lowest
> rico ever paid for such work In Council
Huffs or any other western city. We have
offers from reliable contractors to guarantee
he < beat quality of material and work at a
prlco that Is In the neighborhood of $1 a
quaro yar J.
"Taking out of consideration all desire to
mvo neat and tidy streets for the expos- !
Ion year , the question of public health will
Iguro In the matter this season. Miles of
otten wooden paving soaked with sewage
annot but he dangerous breeding grounder
or disease. I have been assured by jnoni-
icrs of the local medical society that the
oclcty will soon take up the matter for con-
Ideratton and join in the crusade for better
i.ivlng. The work can now bo done with-
ut Increasing the city's general J'ebt ' , for
11 of the Intersections arc now charged up
o the abutting property. Under the new
aw tro city docs not even guarantee- the
> ayment of the coat , hut agrees to act merely
s tht < collector of the special taxes and
lay over the amounts collected to the con-
ractors. This Is not as advantageous to
he contractor as the old law that made the
Ity responsible , 'hut there are plenty or con-
ractors ready to do the work at the lowest
trices and tnko the chances or securing
irompt payment. I think the paving cam-
talgn will open In a few weeks. "
