The court told them that it did not. The jury remained together all night Wednesday night, and today one of the jurymen said that the time they wer, to gether seemed like five weeks Instead of 81 hours. This was the third trial of the ease, in which McKinstry sought to get damages for the death of his wife which, it was alleged, was caused through the rough usage received from the defendaut. The suit was for $.".0oo. It was one of the most remarkable that has been on the Washington county court docket for some time.

Secretary Boot's I'Inn to Excite General Interest.

SEWER MAIN IN BAD WAY Not a Whole Length of Pipe on Main Street FOR SOME DISTANCE If New Street is Constructed New Sewer Main May be Necessary Pipe Broken for Ten Years. At the hearing on the necessity and the nature ot a permanent roadway for Main street at the city council chamber yester day afternoon, a rather startling fact was stated by City Engineer Allen when he said that he had been making an examin ation of the Main street sewer from the National Bank building to Granite street, aud that from Miles' block to Granite street there Isn't a length of sewer pipe that is whole. Mr. Allen further stated that many of the lengths of pipe are broken in three places, two underneath and one on top. From the bank building to the Miles block the pipe Is apparently whole. Be yond Granite street Mr. Allen has not had opportunity to examine. Mr. Allen said the breaks iad probably existed for the past ten years. He attributed the cause of the breaks to poor tamping when the pipe was laid. If the cracks have been there 10 years as seems probable it will be extremnly dangerous to dig up Main street for the purposes of constructing a new roadway without first laying a new sewer main, as the present pipes would be very liable to cave in. The hearing brought out no opposition to the construction of a new street ev ervone agreed that it was needed. The objections that were made were to meth ods proposed by assessing half the cost on the abuttors. W. A. Boyoe, L. .1. Bolster, ,1. P. Lam- son for .Sortwell & Morse and others, F. Williams for the Nichols estate, O. C. Sheplee, Dr. B. W. Bralcy as administra tor for the A. P. Braley estate and Morse estate, W. It. Gladding, Mrs. A, T. Smith, Mrs. L. J." Bolster, Mrs. O. C. Sheplee and J. B. Sanguinettt, all object ed to being assessed -10 percent of the eott of construction. W. G. Reynolds objected to the assess ment if it was to be made on the f rout foot basis. The property of Hevnolds & Son has a considerable frontage, but little depth. The question ot the continuance or tne scales iu front of Reynolds rtwe was dis cussed. L. J. Bolster. ,one of the near-by property owners, said he had uo objection to oner to their remaining. At 3.-1.J the hearing adjourned The sewer system of Barre was con structed Bi years ago this fall at an ex pense of between f(i.".(XlO and $7o,0O0. Bonds for $75,(K)i) wer8 issued to pay for the same. None of these have ever been paid, as they do not fall duo until I'.H'Ht.
