Ever since the Platte river wagon bridge at this point went out with the Ice In the spring of 1908 there has been almost con stant endeavor on the part of those In terested In having it In to get It rebuilt. ana strife against their endeavors by a majority of the Board of. County Commls sloners, backed by strong sentiment of a great majority of the cltlsens of the county outside of Schuyler. Effort was made to make mandamus proceedings effective, but the supreme court would not Issue same, because there was no showing made of funds with which to prosecute the work nor provision made for It by any levy then made. The depleted condition of the bridge fund caused some Investigating, and It was discovered that large quantities of bridge material had been bought. It Is alleged. without regard for laws governing the purchase of same, the commissioners hav ing bought materiaj on their Individual orders, the bills being audited and allowed as soon as presented, and It has been stated, the minority commissioners' being authority, that there are at this time fifteen or sixteen carloads of bridge material be longing to the county at Schuyler, Rogers, Clarkson, Howells and Leigh. The dis covery of this condition, which seemed to Indicate that the commissioners were pur posely working to keep the bridge fund depleted, caused a storm of adverse senti ment and action Is now being strongly urged to stop their work. A restraining order was issued from the county court Saturday temporarily restraining the oom- missioners rrom allowing claims ror mo- terlal so purchased, drawing orders for pay ment of same and from further buying such material excepting by advertising as required by law. TWO HOMER WOMEN I PERIL While Driving from Dakota City Their Rlar Is Struck by Waa-oa. DAKOTA CITT, Neb.. April 18. (Special.) Mesdames John Clayton and Frank Saw yers of Homer met with an accident which might have cost them their lives,' but probably both escaped without serious damage. They bad been to this place to attend a church council meeting and ware on their way home and when about three miles west of this place the vehicle they were riding in was run Into from behind by Thomas Duggan of Hubbard, who had his team running as fast as they could go. Duggan's team ran right up Into the spring buggy occupied by the women, the tongue of the wagon punching their seat nff and hurling the women headlong out of their buggy. The team the women were driving broke loose and ran away, while Duggan's team became entangled In the harness and vehicles, throwing both horses down. Duggan's condition was such that he could offer no assistance. Mrs. Clayton succeeded In getting a knife from Duggan H which she cut the lines, which a lowed Duggan's horses to free themselves I and gave the women a chance to dlsen tangle themselves. Oeorge Hlrschbach. who happened to be passing by, lent them as slstanca and conveyed them to the home of R. O. HUeman, when a physician was summoned. It was found that both were badly bruised and suffering from the shock Mrs. Sawyers has lust lately submitted to a surgical operation and the result In her case cannot be told as yet. DiieZan left Sioux City about 6 o'clock In a drunken condition and he covered the entire dis tance between this place and Sioux City with his team on a run and bi.rely missed running into a number of vebicles he met in the road. It Is very likely some prose cutions will result from his carelessness. Old Pastor Realms. HARPER. Neb..
