Lincoln Journal, Oct. 3. Mrs. S. B.
Hart, of O’Neill, is in the city visiting
her daughter, Mrs. C. R. Yoho and her
son, E. H. Hart. Mrs. Hart was for
merly a resident of Lincoln and was

An outbreak of hostilities between
P. M. Snyder, all the way from Bliz
zardville, John Nolan and Con Keys
was prevented by the intervention of
Chrrles Wrede and William Joyce
Monday. The affair was due to a mis
understanding. It appears that Sny
der has been engaged in cutting cock
le burrs on the shares for several
friends recently and had accumulated
almost enough for his winter supply,
stacking them in the rear of Henry
Cook’s business block. Mr. Nolan
laboring under the impression that
they were from his own property in
the west part of town, it seems dis
posed of them to Mr. Keys, the latter
being an entirely innocent purchaser.
The affair has been adjusted by Mr.
Nolan agreeing to replace Snyder’s
cockle burrs from his own sup/ply.
The statement of the condition of
the Nebraska State Bank of O’Neill
at the close of business September 30,
appearing elsewhere in this issue, is
one it is well for local citizens to read
and digest. Showing as it does a
healthy growth in business and a cash
reserve of practically a third of its
deposits of *366,117.29, it is an indica
tion of the safe and sound policy of
banking pursued by the banking inter
ests of O’Neill. O’Neill indeed is for
tunate in its banking institutions.
During the times of depreciation and
deflation their soundness has been un
questioned and in fact they have rank
ed at the head of all of the banking
institutions of the state, both large
and small, in this respect. And at the
same time there has been money to loan
to regular customers legitimately in
need of it. Very few cities and towns
in the state and nation can report as
Mrs. Frank O’Conner, sr., and Ed
ward O’Connell were called to Chicago
Sunday afternoon by receipt of the sad
intelligence that their nephew and

had been murdered Saturday by ban
dits. Mr. O’Connell had been engaged
in the cigar business at Twenty-sec
ond and Halstead streets for many
years and was accustomed on Satur
days to cash salary checks for custo
mers, to a very large total amount.
Saturday bandits entered the store and
held it up. Mr. O’Connell resisted
and attempted to secure posession of
the pistol of one of the men. He was
shot by another, the bullet entering
just below the heart and killing him.
The bandits then rifled the cash regis
ter, securing several thousand dollars
in Currency. A municipal court bai
liff passing on the opposite side of the
street was attracted by the shooting
an 1, noting the direction taken by the
bar its in their flight, notified the
Maxwell street police station. The
man were apprehended within several
b'ocks of the scene of the murder with
the loot still in their possession. The
funeral of Mr. O’Connell was held
