The past two weeks of district court
in this county have been attended with
the trials and conviction of more hard
cued criminals than Cuss county has
known for the past ten years. Contrary
to the. usual practice the.criminal docket
was taken un first, and the entire time
and energies of the court devoted to
"cleaning out the jail," as Judge Chap
man termed it. Contrary to expectation
and the usual course of criminal ah'airs
every one of the many accused claimed
counsel and made defense, except the
Weeping Water hardware burglars, who,
at the close of tue second weeks work,
plead guilty. During the two weeks there
were ten protracted jury trials; in every
ease the regular panel was exhausted and
more time taken up than otherwise
would have been the case to get a jury.
The defense was able and persistent and
tusked Mr. Allen Beesou to the utmost as
a prosecutor; but, we are informed that
he sustained himself ably, sending eight
men to the penitentiary, besides convict
ing a number of minor offences.
Mr. J. B. Srode and M. A. Ilartigan
and E. II. Wooley, who were counsel for
the culprits in most cases proyed them
selves able criuiiual lawyers, and on the
whole it was au interesting and exciting
term of court.
This week the civil docket is to be
taken up with Judge Applegate, of
Tecumseii, 1st district, on the bench,
there being a number of civil cases to
try which Judge Chapman cannot hear,
owing to his connection with them prior
to his taking his seat upon the bench,
Spoken candidates for Judge Pound's
shoes: The following clipping from the
Nebraska City Times evidences the sen
timents of Otoe county, as gleaned by
that paper's reporter, and we are told
speaks the sentiment of Otoe county so
far as Judge Chapman is concerned.
"The Times has interviewed the attor
neys of this city as to their
choice for the district - judgship.
They are unanimoasly in favor of
Hon. Samuel M. Chapman for one of the
judges. 1 hey say he is nn able lawyer
and an upright, honest judge and has
shown by his conduct during hw short
term on the bench that he is well fitted
for the office. The lawyers concede the
fact that the other judge will come from
Lancaster county and are divided as to
the one to be chosen. Allen Field will,
in all probability, be the man.
Also, the IIekald is informed that
Judge Pound will to-day hand ' to". Gov
ernor Thayer his resignation as judge of
this district, which will very materially
enliven the judicial question in Lancas
i ne court is occupied to-day j uclge
Chapman presiding with a jury trying
the question of the title to College square
a block of ground supposed to be deli
cated to educational purposes in the vill
age of Weeping Water. This case has
been tried once and remanded back by
the Supreme Caurt of the state for errors
occuring in the former trial.
Judge Applegate. is expected on this
evening's train and will take up the trial
of civil cases to-morrow morning.
The Heuald is informed that for dis
patch of business and promptness with
their cases the Cass county b r stand at
the head of the list in the district, and
