The Plattsmouth fire department is
surely in need of some stimulus to re
five the activity of the members. What
is necessary is hard to tell, but then
must be something wron from the fact
that so many are dropped from member
ship for delinquency in attendance, and
yet, it is a good move to rid the organ
ization of all uninterested members. The
fire-department is a necessity to the vital
interests of the city, and though uncom
plainingly prompt service has been ren
dered on every occasion, a meeting hall
and lively interest in its success by all
business men might be a benefit and en
couragement to the department.
Rev. A. K. Myattway, who has for
two years been Baptist minister at Wa-
hoo, was in the ciiy today visiting
around, and admiring the cites, having
found it convenient to stop here on a re

Rev. Myattway is a native of Burmah. or
father India, and came to this country
thirteen years ago and was educated in
New York state for the Baptist ministry,

Wahoo and will doubtless be called to

LIBBIE BIECHLER NOT GUILTY.
That is What the Jury Finds After
Being Out Nine Minutes.
The Popular Verdict.
It will not be worth while for the
Hkkald to attempt to giye the particu
lars of great murder trial which has just
closed, in Omaha, and which has been
the one theme of discussion over Ne
braska, indeed all the central states since
April :J. The case is one of betrayed
confidence which led to the killing of
Harry King of Chicago and Omaha by
Libbie Bitchier, of the former place, on
Ncv 17, 1S83. The scene of the murdr
was the Paxton House parlor, and about
7 o'clock in the morning. King was a
millionaire and that now seems to have
been his only enjoyiable inheritance. The
case came up in the district court at
Oinih i, April a, entitled, "Harry King
vs. Libbie Biechler," and the charge was
murder. Judges Baldwin and Cowin,
represented the defense, and Attorney's
Mahoney and Montgomery the prosecu
tion, though the arguing opened Saturday
by Assistant County Attorney Edgarton.
The great speech of the trial was made
by Gsn Cowin, who is Nebraska's great
est criminal lawyer and of a national
reputation, who began Monday morning
and spoke till 4:30. The court adjourn
ed aad he resumed his speech yesterday
momi:ig for an hour. Attorned Maho
ney occupied the rest of the tims yester
day for the prosecution, arguing till 5
o'clock when court adjourned till 9:30
this morning. He closed his argument
atl0:.'!9 this morning. Judge Groff
gave his instructions and the jury retired
at 10:-15 and in nine minutes returned a
verdict of "Libbie Biechler not guilty."
The prisoner fainted at the announcement
of th.i verdict and was caught by
her attorney Oen. Cowin, who was at her
side. He assisted her to the priyate office
of Judge Groff where her friends con
gratulated her and wept and shouted for
joy; while there rose from the excited
throng a cheer that shook the building
and was heard throughout the city.
Tiie sympathy of the public has been
almost entirely with the defendant in
this c tsa and the verdict is popularly re

A GRAND MOVEMENT.
Plattsmouth Business Men's Asso
Last night representatives of twenty
seven business firms of this city responded
to the call to meet at the Riddle house
for the purpose of organizing a business
men's association. Officers were elected
and an organization effected. It is an
institution with the best interests of its
members in view, and takes in all rstail
dealers. No retailers' association has
heretofore been perfected, here or else
where in this state, for their good, but
this, us a branch of the state organization,
promises to deyelop and become a source
of mutual benefit. The organization is
spreading rapidly because of the good
results to be obtained, and every business
man in Plattsmouth would doubtless do
himself good by associating himself with
