In view of the fact that the cellars on Farnham and Douglas streets are more or less flooded at every heavy rainstorm , as the center of the street' is much higher than the" sidewalk , the BEE wishes to offer a timefy suggestion or two. The grades ot the streets in the city are.madewith reference to the established curb lines. The centre of the street a ' ' not established by any ordinance , but is subject to the action of the City Council. In large cities it has been practically de monstrated that it is advisable to have the street bed one foot tel the curb lines. This has been done in Chicago. The cost of doing this on Farnham or- Douglas street would be but a mere trifle , and if they were sunk one foot , and then the stonecutters put in , there would be no more flooding o cellars ; for. in case thejgutters | overflowed the surplus water-'woiild run into ttie street , aud not over the sidewalks , which are now in many places lower than the centre of the street , and iu some places even lower than the curb Hues. It would require the removal of 2J yards o earth per running foot , which at 30 cents per yard , would make 75cents per foot front , and for 22 feet fron would amount to $16.50 , or $8.25 per 22 feet fronfbn each side of the street. This is a matter that the City Council , as well as the property holders , suould take under imme diate consideration. This much needed improvement , which must be made at some time , would re quire no change in crade. Quit stock of CLOTHING is com plete now. We have just received the Latest Styles in Suits , Spring Overcoats , Etc. Prices "VERY LOW , " to suit the times. M. HELLMAN & Co. apr25eadtoml5 IMPROVED ORDER OF RED MEN.

A I was From your impression there dur ing that trial would you be willing to believe Mr. Vandervoo't under oath from what you learned dur ing that investigation ? A. I would not say of Mr. Van dervoort any different to what I would fcay of any man who might be as flatly contradicted as he was by statements made by other wit- uoses in regard to a ccr'ain fact. / would not bHevc him , or any man , lei ' htm be inn ° lvn brother , ivhose. testimony ' wassojlaVy contradicted , as his is. He swore positively about a conversation , and was flatly con tradicted by other witnesses. Mr. Vandervoort Who was the convocation with ? A. The conversation was proven afterwards by James R. Porter and a man I have forgotten his name from Saunders county , that you remarked about the card in theRe - pubUcan that if the BEE didn't re ply to it , Rosewater would get licked , and if he replied to it in any ways saucy he would g t licked. You denied that there was any conversation on thattnbjeccinyoin afflce. Q. Who with ? A. With anybody. Thequeation ivas asked you about a conversation in regard to a fact at any time in pour office , and you said "no. " rhere was other conversations in egard to it that took place in your tlice , aud Mr. Yost and these other nen contradicted that just as flatly. Q. What was that with reference o ? ' A. That was witli reference to the Q ame thing , hut the details are not fresh in my uind. Q. As far as niy recollection goes , P < he question was asked me whether tu [ had had any conversation with . I. Curufujjs in my office ? A. It was not in reference to that , 'he conversation referred to tnere th ras in reference to a conversation es M. Cumings" office , aud that you euied there. I never saw Mr. at t randervonrt until he came there , nd I don't know as I have seen im since.I do not aay this out of ny ill feeling I have towards hltm would eay it in regard to mankind en rally. Mr. Huntington How many wit- coi BSSCS testified with regard to that raversation ? A. I think two. With regard to ie conversation In Yost's office , tere was a good many. I do not member the details of that con- asked. I could srsatiou. It was jua at remember who asked it , but ley have got it and all they asked * iken1 down. There wag some disI I aP- crepancy In regard to that conver sation. Q , . Who was testifying there ? A I don'c remember whether Mr. Vandervoort did or not , but Mr. Yost himself contradicted It. He said he was writing and over- beard the conversation going on , so I am satisfied there was such a conversation. It may not have been Mr. Vandervoort , but there was. some witness who swore that no such conversation took place. Mr. Vandervoort. There is a discrepancy between me and Mr. Yost in regard to when that con versation took place. I think it yi an 'after the card was pdblishe'l aud Mr. Yost thinks it was before. The witness. Mr. Miner testified in regard to that conversation , but whether he testified it was before or after I do not remember. Mr Va'ndervoort. Was not the question asked whether Mr , Miner and I had a conversation ? A. That may have been in regard to the conversation in Yost's room. Mr , RosewaterT From the gener al tenor of the testimony there was you led to believe that there was a kind of understanding I won't call it a conspiracy between Vander- vonrt and Yost aud Mr. Miner to The Witness I would not in clude Mr. Yost. This testimony led the grand jury to believe that Mr. Vandervoort and Mr. Miner , aud it almost reached Mr. WilLse himself , although it was not as pos itive , that they were kind of egging the thing on. The opinion of the grand jury was , aud it was almost a unanimous thing , that these men instigated Curry. Mr. Miner testl- tied the first he , " knew anything .about"it ' . , Mr. iCurry came'Up and 'asked him to write thi | card. Mr. Overall testified positively that he passed Miuer and Curry hi front of Caldwell block" , and that Miner told Curry that that attack on the colored dance houses never should go unno ticed ; anil then therfe was a little conversation between them , and Miner took out his note book aud began to write. He said he didn't want to stand there looking on , but he was certain that Mr. Curry wat influenced by others. Mr. Porter testified { that he told Andy Rosewater - water of this probable assault , and Andy testified that the reason b.3 did not tell his brother was that he didn't think that there was as much importance attached to it as Porter attached to it , aud when he saw his brothei , something caused him to forget it. Porter thought so much of it that he went and told Andy Rosewater himself. Q. He said he got his information from Vandervoort ? A. . Yes , sir. J. S. Gibson , called on the pait of the prosecution , being duly sworn aud examined by Mr. Rose water , testified as follows : Mr. Huntinglon What is your business ? A. I am in the clothing business. Mr. Rogewater Were you a mem- oer of the special grand jury that in vestigated the assault made upon nie by Curry and others ? A. Yes , sir , I was. Qv During the investigation of that ca e , and from the evidence given there by Mr. Vandervoort and others in this rase , would you now be willing to believe Air. Vauder- voort's statements under oath. A. I will say I have not had much acquaintance with Mr. Vandervoort and if 1 am to answer the qup&tion \ will say that , although I am not at liberty from my oath to reveal any testimony taken' in the grand jury room Mr. Huntingtou That is all gone up after the trial. The Wituess .No , sir ; I don't understand it that way. I under stand from the charge of the court that I am not to reveal anything that transpired in the Qrand Jury room. I will say that Mr. Vauder- voort's testimony I was satisfied was not true the testimony he gave un der oath oecaiife there was other witnesses who testified to the con trary. Mr. Vandervoort What was the discrepancy In the testimony I gave there ? A. I would have to tell what the testimony was to tell the discrep ancy. It was with regard to con versations had with certain parties in your office. You said it did not occur , and two or three atherparties said it did. Q. Aud can you testify that the question was not asked me whether 1 had any conversation with Mr Miner in ray office ? A. That may have been the ques tion. The answer was , there had been no conversation in your pres ence. G The other matter was , and is , a difference of opinion between Mr. Yost and myself as to to the time. My impression Is , T was asked whether I had had any conversa tion with Mr , Miner. Are 3-011 sure the question was whether I had had any conversation with anybody ? A. Your testimony uas entirely different from that of the o'her wit nesses Mr. Rosewater From Mr. Yost's , also ? A. Yes , sir. Mr. Huntington Who makes se lections of juries here ? A. I don't know who does. I know who should. The county commissioners should select the names to be chosen from , and the fiherlB serve them with notice. Mr. Vaudervoort This was a special Grand Jurj. Who selects a special Grand Jury ? A. I can't tell. Q. Did you ever speak to me or have any acquaintance with me whatever ? A. No , sir. Q. Yet you are willing to swear you will not believe me ? A. J am willing to swear 1 would not beltove about that matter. There wan three other witnesaes whoswore ibsitively against you. 1 " (7o be continued. ) I. O. O. F.
