The Curtis Case.
The hearing of the Curtis matter
wasn't such a blood curdling affair
alter all. Curtis himself didn't go on
to the witness stand at all. aud vir
tually waived a preliminary exami
nation. The facts as adduced upon
au examination of the complaining
witness aud Messrs. Win. II. Martin
and A. B. Taylor, were iu substance
that Curtis had hilhorlo borne a good
reputation in all respects, lie was
the room male and bed lellow of Win.
Hull, aud they were very warm, inti
mate friends. lie missed the money,
and Curtis had gone to Omaha. The
sheriff went to Omaha, and found
Curtis there, aud quietly informed
him of the nature of his errand,
whereupon Curtis hauded him his
pocketbook and told him there was
his pile. The pocket book contained
$40, which didn't satisfy the sheriff,
who proceeded to search him, the re
sult of the search being the finding of
$70 more. They came back to Platts
mouih and Curtis turned over $95 to
Hull, aud remarked that he was hard
up and wanted to go south, whereup
on Hull handed him back $5 and told
him to take it. Mr. Miner testified
that Curtis was a man of good habits,
had lived with him for some time,
and never saw anything wrong. The
witness upon being pressed by coun
sel, liually said that he missed 920
last winter some, time, and that if
Curtis wai guilty of this, he might be
guilty of stealing the $'20. Curtis
pleads not guilty. The matter could
have been amicably settled between
the panics themselves if it had not
been for the interference of other par
tics. The prosecution at one time
offered to withdraw the complaint it
the accused would pay the cosf,
which was refused. The court bound
Curtis over iu the sum of two hund
red dallar for his appearance at the
sitting ol the district court, which
bond was given. The simple fact
that the court thought there was
probable cause, doesn't convict the
man of the crime. Whether he is
really guilty or not remains yet to
be developed. If he is guilty, let
him be punished and branded as a
thief, if he is not guilty, while this
occurrence mav be holduii und used
against him by his enemies, yet al
good citizens will still hold mm in
the same estimation as though it had
not occurred. Let the presumption
of innocence, until proveu guilty
A Party of Solid Illinois Men Lookiug
for Land in This State.
On yesterday's Union Pacific train
was a party of forty solid men from
Illinois; men looking for farming ant
stock lands. Nebraska if becoming
well Known for its great advantages
for combined farming where grain
stack-growing aud abundant pastur
age ean all be had together. In this
party were some stock-men witl
plenty of capital to engage in stock
orecuing. louug stock which is
now 6o largely imported can be
growu here of a higher quality. The
climate of Nebraska, the abundance
ot the best food, which can be grown
so cheaply, are becoming known to
eastern cattle men, who are daily
coining here looking for stock farms
Such advantages are not offered by
any western 6tate.
