A VIADUGT BILL INTRODUCED Mr. Davies Presented the Measure and on Motion of Mr. Robathan It Will Be Reported Printed Mr. Nealis Presents a Resolution That Grants Certain Privileges to Veter ansOther Matters Considered. Joseph Mathulis (or Tomalumus;, the Providence Polander who several days ago was hit ou the bead with an ax iu a drunken melee, died Wednesday night. Yesterday morning Coroner Kelly performed an autopsy before the following jury ; Dr. W. D Downe, Al bert Scbulu. John W. Drown. J. 11. McCarty, Orson Hal lock und Natbau Ttiouipsuu. Thei autopsy revealed sn opening in the skull on tbe left aide of the bead about two inches above the ear, an I an other opsniug caused by trepiniug. Tbe later is the result of n recent oper ation performed by Dr Sullivan, Dr. Murphy und Dr. Doune, who had hoped to save the man's life. The wound caused by the axe blow is tri angular in shape. In taking ft' the skull-cap the membranes of the brain were found to be ruptured aud the bruin substance protruded through. In the left lobu of the cerebrum there is a large cavity about three iucbes deep, into which tbe index finger can b eas ily iuserted and which contained a quantity of bloody pus. An Inquest will be conducted by the corouer this evening at 7.80 o'clock at the office of Alderman William! in Providence, vvhefe the following wit nesses will bo examined diaries Ulock, Enoch Peters, Mary Lncltasav age, Antonio Aleoksona, Authony Lenikney, Andrew r Henry; Smith and Joseph Judge. Smith and Judge are. thought to be the in ii who struck Mathulis the blows which caused his death Smith some time ago obtained' his release on bail in tim sum or $1,UJU, but Ju Igs was re tained iu custody.

During the eveuiug several out siders intruded upon the festivities which brought on the 'fight. Smith avers that he acted as peac -maker and was between Jaigl and Mathulis during tbe struggle. . OLIVER TWIST AT WONDERLAND. An Euj 'yabls Psrforminc Given by , N image i Davis' 8tock Company. "Oliver Twist," a dramatisation of Dicken s great novel, was introduced at tbe Wouderland theater last night, and the reception accorded it am.ily satisfied the management of this popu lar resort that the play will prove a great attraction. I lie title role was Resumed by Miss Hrare Coutoit in n msnuer which will satiefp the most critical Willi) Cor bett's impersonation of the villain, bill Sykes, admits of no improvement, while Ous Romer u Fagin, and Alice Kemp as Nancy Sykes scored frtquent Hpplause. Tlio murder scene was par ilcularly realistic, the murdered Xaney being dragged across the stage by the hair, and other "busiuesi" of the scene being done in a wonderfully real and horrible maimer. Last night's rendition of tho plav gave evidence that all lovers of the melo drama will have no fault to find with Wouderland's "Oliver Twist." . COULD NOT BE PUT IN COLUMN What the Baker Law Has to Sav About Ballots for Spicial 0iestloni. At the meeting of the bridge com mittee Wednesday nigkt diesntisfaction was expressed concerning tbe ballots for the coming election, some of those preeent arguing that there had been bungling in the preparation of the ticket nnd that the propositions with regard to bridges and parka should have been placed In separate column. That would have been impossible hi the following clsine taken from the Baker ballot law, shows Whenever the approval of s coustitu tional amendment or other questlou Is submitted lo the vote of the people such questinu shall be printed upon the ballots In a brief form nnd followed by tbe words "yes" mi I "B and If such question be submitted at an election of public officers It shall be printed below the list of candi dates.

Tbe acci dent occurred Nov. 11, ISM. If tbe court and jury should believe the testimony of Mr, Jollier's witnesses, it would appear that the lamp hole was lu au unsafe con dition at the time the sewer was accepted and that that acceptance and the inspec tion which hi have accompanied it were so near the 'time of tbe accident thai tbe city would be charged with full notice of the defect Iu this view of of tbe case think it would be wiser to settle with Mr. Jobler if it can be douu upon terms which stem reabonuble to tbe commute .
