It was yesterday reported to the police Hint Louis Boos, a whltewoshcr and calelmlncr liv ing np-stnlM at No. 11 Union street, was In a dying condition, tho result of certain contusions and wounds received Friday morning at tho hands of Jacob Nlcthammor, a saloon-keeper at No. 257 Canal street. Tbo police Investigated, and from City Physician Dunne and Dr. B. Hahn, of No. 183 West Monroe street, ascer tained that Boos’ Injuries wero really of a se rious nature, and might prove fatal; and Indeed ol that time it seemed probable that they would so result. The story of tho Injured mao was listened to by tho detectives, and then they ar rested Nlcthammcr at hts saloon. To a reporter who visited him last evening lloos stated that the row lu which he was Injured occurred In the saloon No. 1157 Canal street, lie had been em ployed whitewashing a largo building a few doors south of the saloon, and had frequently sent to the place for beer during working hours fur both himself mid workmen. Never loss limn n half gallon was bought at u time, lie llnlshod the Job Thursday night, and Friday morning wont to thu bull'ding to see how his employer liked Die work. It suited icrfcctly, and after u long talk they all ad , mimed to Nlothuinmcr’s saloon to settle uo the account and to “wet" the bargain with a few glasses of beer. While settling up Nlct huminer claimed there were 75 cents owing for beer. Koos could not believe if, and protested tlmt the account was exorbitant. Angry words followed, and, according to Uoos, the saloon-keeper reached across the counter ami gave him a punching blo\v in thu nit of (ho stomach with a brush which ho used tn wash out glasses. The blow ami push came so unex pectedly tlyit Uoos fell heavily and at fall length upon the floor. ilo snvs that Nlethmnmer then ran from hchlud tho bar, and struck him three heavy blows on the hdt arm, and three others on the left side with a hickory club which be has concealed behind the bar. And. further, ho believes that liu would have been killed outright by||hlm had It nut been that ho had presence of mind to run out of tho place. That non-payment of the bill was not the aggravating cause, Koos proves by the fact that he left his pocket-knife and ottered to leave bis cunt us security until the bill was paid. Hut be believed t)ii‘ bill for 75 cents was exorbitant, and dkl not intend to pay It without expressing hJnsoi*) U snould have Peon, at must, 55 tents. The injured man is cortaiuly in a had condi tion. Ills left side Is a nines of bruised Hindi, likewise Ids arm, and there are a couple of con tused wounds upon tho back of the head. 110 breathes and coughs with thogrcatostdllllculty. The physicians hi attendance are sure his In ternal Injuries aro of quite a serious nature, hut yesterday ho rallied from thesomt-comotoso condition in which he had lain, and seemed to he lu an improved condition. 110 is 17 years of age, and has led a dissipated life for years, and this is the ehlefcst of tho chances against Ids successful buttle foriifu Id his present situation. Nlethamcr.a neat,cleyor-looklngUonmm with light hair ami eyes, was next seen lu his coll ut the West Mndlaun Direct Dtallon. 110 allowed that thu quarrel was shout tho payment for hour given to one of Kuos’ workmen upon tho uulhl lug. When ho requested payment for tils beer Kuos became highly iudlgnaut, and then fur want ot some excuse lor not paying tho bill quarreled us to Its size, lie olferud to,settle with him for whatever ho wished tn pay, but Uoos was quarrelsome, ‘and he himself was a litllo out ot temper at tho account having been disputed. Angry words followed. And at this Juncture his story differs from that ot Uoos. Jlu says the whltcwasher climbed upon tho foot-railing üboutlho bur and struck at him a couple of times with his fists. In de finite ho grabbed up thu brush, which Is but a light weapon, ami pushed him awuv from tho bar. Exactly what followed be does not remem ber, but he Is sure that he neither kicked him nor used thculubnpoii him. but might have dealt aim repented blows with the brush. Kuos was not badly Injured, apparently, for hu walked out of the saloon, and went home without assistance, Mr. Nictnaimner savs that thu following per sons witnessed tho entire assault, and will all testify In hit behalf: Ills wife nml servant; a • Mr. liausch, living at thu corner of Wood ami Klnzlc streets, ami a friend of his named Wilke; ' nml a baker doing business at No. 400 West ' Twelfth street. ihe saloon-keeper Is given an excellent repu tation br all who know him. Uuos is a dissi pated fellow, uml is not admired. Ula neigh bors take but little stock lu the charges made against Nluibsmroer.

He was upon the street ami In saloons until carlv even lim, when at least a dozen of his neighbors mid a policeman anw him going homo drunk, lln staggered And fell several times, mid must Imvo hurt himself severely, so that It Is not probable that nil his bruises were received In the Lanai street saloon. At 10 o’clock last night Nlclhnromor was ad mitted to sfi,ooo hat) until to-day, a wealthy German named Christian KoennlDßcr going upon the bond. OIUTUAItY. lIKSJAMIN T. 1.88.

THIS GRAND CANON CONTROVERSY, General Manager W. 1). Strong and General Freight Agent >T. P. Goddard, of the Atchison, TOpeka A Santa Fe Railroad, wore In the city yes* terdny. In a conversation with these gentlemen a Tmnunr. reporter learned that the Atchison, To peka & Santa Fo ofllclals consider the recent de cision of the United States Supremo Court regarding the right of way througn tho Grand Canon of tho Arkansas or tho Royal Gorgo as a victory for their road, and thov do not think that tho Denver A Rio drnmlo will ’make any further trouble about tho matter. Tho claim of some of the Denver A Rio Urando ofllclals that tho decision was in lliolr favor wa« based on Incomprehensible grounds. Wherein their victory lies was difficult to see, sinco the Company cannot get what It has always claimed and only gets what never was dis puted. Tho Denver &JUo Grande claimed an ox -1 elusive right of way through tho canon. This right : was denied on special grounds, and the general ground of Meanwhile, however, tho Denver & Rio Grande’s right to occupy the canon in common with other roads was conceded. Tho courts were invoked to settle the question, and Judge llallelt, by reason of tho manner In which tho Denver A Rio Grande’s pleadings were formed, decided against It. Still claiming tho ex clusive right, It then annealed to the Supreme Court, and the tlnal decision also refused tho exclusive right, and only allows It joint occupation of the canon, when tho Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fu loaves tho Denver A 1,.0 Grande it was understood that all ponding Hulls should bo witlidruwn, but this has nut been done. The efforts on the part of tho officials of tho Denver A: Rio Grande to go back to tho lease urc believed to no dictated by certain parties who bad largo private Interests in the property, and who could not got tho officers of tho Atchison, Topcua & Santa Fo to subserve those urlvato in terests or help them along. Since tho lease of the Denver A Rio Grande the Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fo has pushed the road forward from Canon City through the Urann Canon with all possible speed. Fifty miles of road through tho canon huvo bueu graded, and about ten miles of track laid through tho Royal Gorgo. The Denver & Rio Orando would hardly tlnd space enough to build another track, and would therefore bo compelled to use the track of thu Atchison. Topeka A Santa Fo If the lease should bo broken. Tno following from tho Denver 3Vl6«ns In regard to Ibis matter will bo of Interest: "Tho recent decision of the Supreme Court makes the preservation of the validity of tho lease of thu Denver A Rio Grando a question of not nuarlvns much importance to tho Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fo on it was before. The most important point to tho Southern road in the contest which has been raging baa boon tho preservation of its right of wav through tho Grand Canon, and, this having been legally and finally decided In its favor, the other points are not so materia). In fact, tho boot tms been shifted to tho othor leg, and now. white tho continuance of the lenso is not a matte rof vital Import to the Atchison, the very existence of the Denver & Wo Grands as a corporation depends upon it. The reasons why aro plain. ••Thu principal business which comes overtho Atchison to Colorado now it Lcadvlilo easiness. The completion at Us line from Canon City to Lcridvillo by the Ist of September will largely In crease Us tdmro of this trade. Therofore, If (ho Icaso is broken, the Atchison will have to build at once to Canon City. This it can do in two or three months. One-half of the road is already graded and thu laying of the track over this portion can buttio at unco. In the interim thocunstruelion o(a broad-gauge road from Pueblo to Denver cun con* Untie as originally projected, and it can bo com* nlctcd in six mouths. This done the Denver & iUo Grando virtually drops out of the roll of cor* pornllons. It Is a narrow-gauge read with a debt of over $20,000 on every mtio of track. It has lost its New Mexico business, and thu business below Puetiio would go to rendering IGO miles of track utterly useless. Between Pueblo and Denver It could hopo for only a lltlio local (rude, and this wonld not be enough to grease its wheels. Punning parallel to It, and competing for this local trado with It, weald be the brand Ranee track of the Atchison, Topeka A Bantu Fe. and in the competition the trunk lino would have every advantage, its wider gauge, Us superiority of construction, and 1U greater facili ties would enable it to crush the other, in u war of rates the Atchison road could transfer passen gers and freight for nothing between Pueblo and Denver If It chose. It lias the deepest pocket book and n 'cut' which would be hardly an lucl dent in Its history wonld bo death to the Rio Grande. Tho effect Upon Denver A Bio Grande securities wonld ho just as disastrous. Stocks would uu down to nothing, and the bonds, which were about 40 whoa tho negotiations fur tiio lease began, and which have grown to 00 since, would not bo worth 10 cunts in tho market. At 40 cents when the Donevcr A Rio Grande had A monopoly uf llio Southern Colorado and Now Mexico trade what would the bonds he quoted at with tho New Mexican trade gone and with competition in tho lUlle local trade there was left! The question is an Interesting one. As long as there was dancer uf thu Atchison Hoad being forbidden a right of way through the Grand Canon it was to ita interests to fight and light bitterly. Now Dint this right has been granted it by the Supreme Court Us interest In pruyerving the lease and holding tho majority of the stock la by no means all-absorbing. 1 • As for thu Denver A Bio Grande, it could not borrow a cent fur extensions. Heavily loaded with debt, with a profitless railroad on Its hands, and with u powerful corporation to fight, whut representations could It make in tho money mar kets uf thu world which would bo potent oiiuush to untie tho purse-slrlnci of shrewd investors! Nona whatever. Capitalists fight shy of shams and fail ures, and thu Dover A -Bio Qramlo eloquence would be wasted in vain. 1 • Tho question is one of especial Importance to those who hold thu Denver A Bio Grande stocks and bonds, and wo advlso them to examine into It. They will find the case exactly as here stated." COMPLETER AT LAST. • A tciegronirticclved here Bnlurday from Mr. J. C, McMulltii, (lenend Manager of the Chicago & Alton Railroad, dated Glasgow, Mo,. April 80, announce* the completion of the great stool bridge over the Missouri Hirer, as follows: "At II o’clock a. n)., Engine No. 10, with officers’car •Grout West,’crossed tho new steel bridge ovor Missouri liberal Glasgow." A subsequent olspalch states that heavy engines and trains have also passed over the new structure and thorough tests hove been made. Tito bridge Is pronounced complete, sod a great success la every respect. 'i'Uu work on tho foundations of this groat struct* uro was begun m 1878, and they wuru completed Dec. in of tho same year. They are six in num ber, ranging from twenty to sixty feet deep. This work was directly Incharguof Oen. William Sony Smith, Chief Hmnucor. and was not let by con tract in any part. Tho masonry of the piers was begun in September. 1878, and completed March I. 1870, amount ing to d.iUH] yards. and built by Reynolds, Ssuispaugb JbCo,, of Hock Island. Tho superstructure Is as follows: Hast approach, Iron trestle, gib feet long, sud two-deck spans of HU foot each. Main bridge, three through spans and two deck spans of 1)14 feet 8 inches each, all of steel, the Urst entire steel bridge In the world. West approach, ouu-deck spun of HU feet, iron trestle work 010 feet lung, and corrorton trestle work 880 feel long. Tho new Kansas City exten sion of (ha Chicago & Alton Is now complete, and (rains will run through from Chicago and St. Louis to Kansas City without break. Thu through pas •euger trains will commence to run over the new extension to-day. The freight trains have been running over tbs new Hoe fur the past week or two, the transfer at Glasgow belmr made by ferry. 4p«*aJ XNwateS le Ttu TytSuns. OLAtaMg.
