months, was arrested Saturday even
ing on the charge of passing forged
checks on Forstedt & Shcctly, harness
makers In this city. He appeared be
foro Judge Grant yesterday morning
and entered a plea of guilty and he
will probably be allowed to plead be
fore Judge Grimes today.
Barron faced two counts. Tho first

for passing it. The check was made
out on the McDonald State bank and
was signed Thomas Cox, who Is a
railroad man In this city. Tho amount
It is reported that ho forged checks
on every bank in tho city, but evldenc
other than his own admission failed to
reveal tho other checks. Tho penalty
for this crime is an Indeterminate
sentence of from one to twenty years.
Barron gives his homo as Lincoln

there. Ho is a 'dope" fiend and be
came quite violent Sunday and had to
be quieted with morphine. He made
tho statement that the ponltentiary is
tho only place where he will be safe
and seemed anxious to start for that
place. From all records that can be
found there is nono that would show
that ho has over been there before.
KILLED IN GUN FIGHT
Tho following dispatch from the
Omaha World-Herald tells of the
death of a former resident of this city:
Stapleton, Neb., Sept. 2C Frank J.
Polzklll shot W. W. Thomas Thursday
evening on tho Lon Dillon farm est
of town. He died a few hours later
from tho effects of the wound. Tho
bullet entered the head Just above and
to the left of the left temple. The act
was done In self-defense, that being
the verdict of the jury at the inquest.
Both men were residents of Logan
Mr. Thomas was a resident of this
city several years ago. He opened up
a blacksmithing shop on the north
side of the building now occupied by
Knox & Walter. He and Mr. Polz
klll were brothers-in-law iand had
had some trouble before this. Thomas

Frank Taylor, who was arrested last
week for stealing goods from the
Chamberlain rooming house will
probably be" given a hearing in the
county court today. He was arraigned
last week and pleaded not guilty to
the charge of breaking and enterng.
Ho will bo tried for larceny, the state
having decided that they cannot
prove that he broke into the house.
Taylor stated at the hearing that the
door was open when he went in. The
amount of the theft was about twenty
dollars, which will give him a Jail
sentence. He stated that he would
plead guilty to larceny.
Georgo Bishop, the paroled convict
who 'was arrested last week at Wal
lace for stealing from the man to
whomh e was paroled, has pleaded
guilty to the charge of larceny in the
county court. He Is now being held
In the county Jail to await the action
of the pardon board. He will probably
be taken back to Lincoln to servo out
the term from which he was paroled
and tho present charges will bo drop
ped. Bishop was serving his second
term in the penitentiary when ho was
paroled. Both times he was sent up
for stealing clothes, which seems to be
a mania with him.
