The Bridge Company Snt lulled.
The leading * ' members of the Broad
way bridge company were asked yester
day what they thought of the olllcial re
port made by the socivtury of war , and
publihhcd in yesterday's BKK. They re
plied very promptly and emphatically
that they were satisfied with it.
"Do you anticipate any further trouble
about the mutter ? "
"Why , no. We don't sec how there
can bo , or how there ought to bo. Ono
of the chief complaints made by these
who have opposed the enterprise has
been that wo were not building such a
combined bridge as was contemplated.
You sec the ofliHal report pretty
squarely settles that point. Itays :
'Tho bridge is being constructed as
a combined railway and wagon bridge ,
and in this particular is believed
to bo in accordance with the provisions
of the act of March 3 , 1887. ' It bcems to
remove all doubt as to what is being
done , and whether the bridge will bo
such a ono ns the law requires. "
"But what about the plans not being
the ones which were approved by the
secretary of war ? "
"There is some difference in the
plans , but our present plans have ad
vantages over the first plans. It is
simply a technical diirerenco , mainly in
regard to the length of the spans. In
stead of having three spans 300 feet
each , wo have the main span 400 feet
and the two others 250 feet each. Of
course there can bo no real objection to
this change , and in fact it is pronounced
in the olHcitil report a bettor plan than
the original. If wo uro doing better
than the law required no one can com
plain. The report of the engineer says :
" 'Tho mot I
design my approval , as
considered that with a 400 feet span over
the main channel and two 250 foot spans
adjacent thereto bettor accommodation
was afforded to navigation than by the
three ! > 00 foot spans required by law ,
while the waterway would be the same. ' "
"What about the change suggested
by the engineer ? "
"That is simply in regard to the carriageway
riage-way trusses of the two last river
spans. Those two spans arc not over the
channel , and the river may never bo in
such condition as to over permit the
passage of boats there , in which case
the trusses aa now planned would bo all
right , but if the channel should ever
change , these trusses could very easily
bo lifted right up out of the way. The
change of those trusses in no way affects
the grade line. Wo have planned for
ju.st such a possible change as this , and
H is a comparatively unimportant mat-
tor. "
"You are therefore satisfied with the
finding as it is ? "
-"Most . "
- certainly wo are.
"But what about the change from
Dodge to Duuglas street ? "
"There wore some insurmountable ob
jections on Dodge street the crossing of
Union Pacific tracks , and the smelting
works property but the worst feature
was the engineering difllculty to over
come a hump in the bed rock of nine
teen feet opposite Douglas street that
did not exist opposite Dodge street. By
placing a 800-foot span , leaving this
nineteen foot lump protecting upward ,
might have caused an obstruction of the
channel , and probably would , throwing
the channel on to the east side from the
west , where so much has boon spent ii :
holding it. "
"You are therefore satisfied with the
finding as it ib ? "
"Most . "
certainly wo are.

The Trial of Cofrninn.
The CofTman case was at last reached
yesterday. Most of the day was spen
in the dreary task of securing twelve
men as rt jury. Most of the exami
tions wore uninteresting , but the court
room was well filled with these whc
bcemod anxious to hear even this ,
George Drake was about the only jury
man called who broke the monotony.
Ho frankly declared that he always had
an opinion about any matter in which ho
was interested to any degree , and that
whatever prejudices he had were al
ways in favor of his friends. Ho could
not toll whether his opinions and preju
dices in this case would prevent his
giving a fair verdict or not. "I moan
just this , that if ono witness swore to
ono thing , and another just to the oppo
site , so that it was about oven , I would
stick by my friends. "
Ho was at last excused , and the jury
was soon after completed , the state hav
ing exhausted its peremptory challenges ,
and the defense having throe loft. At
torneys Ware and Mynstor are prosecut
ing. while on the defense arc Colonel
Daily , Colonel Sapp and N. M. Pusoy.
r It was near the hour for adjourning
when the jury was secured. Attorney
Ware objected to the jury being allowed
to separate during the progress of the
trial , and asked that a bailiff bo placed
in charge of them to keep thorn together ,
and separate from the rest or the world.
The attorneys for the defense objected
to this , on the * ground that it wasa needless -
loss inconvenience upon the jury ,
and that the jurymen could bo
trusted without being thus locked up
day after day. In other cases
it was not customary to thus keep
the jury locked up , ana when this case
was tried before this was not done.
Judge Loofbourow decided that under
the statute ho could not do otherwise
than to direct a bailiff to keep them in
charge , if either party objected to their
being separated.
After the opening nddressefe to the
jury Deputy Sheriff Cusick took charge
of the twelve and marched them off.
This case has been before the public
in various forms over since the 20th of
July , 1885 , nt which time the trouble
occurred which resulted in the death of
Jack Main and the arrest of A. W. Coff-
man , the defendant. Main was at work
for ColTman , and some trouble arising
between them Main mot CofTman at a
restaurant in Avoca , where both lived ,
and thcro they had a sottlomontof their
accounts. Then an altercation followed -
lowed , in which CofTman was badly
punished by Main and which
ended in Coffnmn fatally shooting -
ing Main. The grand jury which
mot in December , 1885 , failed to
find an indictment against CofTman , but
in Juno following the grau'd jury then
in session returned n bill charging him
with mnnslttuchter. The 'niso was
tried and the jury disagreed. Now it
comes up for another trial.
ColTman has claimcdtlmt the killing
was in telf defense. The controversy
over the evidence in the case has proved
of interest on nccount of the promi
nence , wealth and standing of Coffman.
rather than on account of any effort of
Main's friends , for ho died without any
estate or family. Aside tfom the in
terest which would naturally arise out
of the case itself , there IB a grcatalcal
more interest because of the complica
tions which have arisen , and which
have in part been fastened onto the
CIIBO. ColTman ln\s boon a thorn in the
flesh to some , especially lo borne of the
local democratic leaders. The party
line has boon drawn somewhat in the
malterand in addition to this there arose
n dispute between Coffman and Fremont
Benjamin , xvho was ono of his attorneys
in the first days of his arrest. Benja
min sued Coltnian for $ i,500 ! fee. An
action was commenced against Benja
min lo got him debarred , but this was
dropped. Another suit was commenced
against ColTman for 810,000 irt favor of
W. B. Cuppy , who had been appointed
administrator of the Main estate , So
many chapters have boon added to the
history , that it has been kept before
the public much of the time since the
homicide. Although Main's relatives
do not appear in the case , there seems
to bo no luck of enrnestiiessin the prose
cution , and this gives some color to the
claim of Cell man nnd his friends that
there arc other motives stronger thnn
the mere desire to see law vindicated
nnd justice secured.
The jury selected in the case is as
follows : H. C. Hartwoll , H. A. Smith ,
William Schocnning , J. Timberman ,
John Burk , Simon Reynolds , O. O. St.
John , Francis Lowe , G. Larson , W. O.

The Hotel Moves.
Yesterday morning Messrs. Allen
& Boll , architects , wore ordered by
the board of trade committee to prepare -
pare sketches of a hotel , which are to
bo used in furthering plans now under
consideration by that organization.
These sketches will present a seven-
story building 102x110 feet. Several
rumors are afloat growing out of this
fact , but of the plans outlined by the
committee absolutely nothing is known.
This much may bo said with safety : At
this time three schemes are on foot and
and all are mooting with more or less
favor. Should that of the board of trade
committee seem the most feasible and
best meet the public favor , a syndicate
will be formed , a first-class site se
lected and the building immediately
orocted. Council Bluffs is sure of a
first-class hotel.

DISCOVERY OF A MAMMOTH CAVE
Snia to Rival .the Great Kentucky
-Huntsvillo ( Ala. ) special to the Chicago
cage Times : A discovery has been
made that promises to give to Hunts-
vllle a reputation possessed by few
places in the United States. A rival to
Lhe great Mammoth cave has just been
Tound within a mile of the corporation
lines. The existence of this cave has
been known for years , but it was never
suspected to bo but one of many insig-
nificent holes in the ground. The cave
is what is known ns the Bowling'James
farm. The entrance is small and unin
viting. A descent of over fifty
feet was necessitated to reach the
main floor. The decent , of course ,
is not nearly direct , but can at no great
expense bo made so. Once in the cave ,
the party lighted lanterns , of which
they toofc with them as many as the
three could carry , and started on their
excursion. They were not long in as
certaining that they were in a tremendous
deus cavern , and in order to be.sure of
finding their way back they placed lan
terns along their path , and about 200
yards separated. The room in which
they found themselves they estimated to
bo 250 or 300 acres in tjrea , though this
is only a guess , since they could not in
darknessseo far ik any direction.
The wall,1 in places where they came in
contact with it is covered with a sub
stance that , even in the timid light of
the lanterns , glistened as crystal and in
many places they came upon formrtions
curious in form and dazzlingly beauti
ful.
ful.Tho
The explorers wandered about in one
direction and another for two hours ,
and finally found their progress im
peded , if indeed not quite cut short , by
a beautiful body of water. By the light
of their lanterns they were enabled to.
guess as to the width of the lake , but
missiles thrown by them as far as possi-
fell in water. They might have made
their way around it , ana attempted to
do so , but after traveling a short dis
tance they discovered an en
trance to what appeared to be a
second enormous room. This they could
not enter because the water of the
lake partially closed the entrance. At
this point there wore indicaiions that
the stage of the lake is not stationary ,
as the floor appeared wet beyond the
edge of the water showing that the
water had receded.
People here are delighted at their
"find " and have'named the
, great cav
ern "Shelta rock. " They will at once
alter the opening or approach into the
cave and arrange. ' tor perfect lighting ,
so that a thorough inspection can bo
made. Parties who have visited Ken
tucky's Mammothicave believe "Shelta
rock' ' to be fully as extensive.

clerk. "No , noU to any extent. There

others is no excuse for it.
