An Important Case
The case of M. O'Donohoe vs. M.
D. Polk, et al., tried in the district
court yesterday furnishes a remark
able instance of misplaced confi
dence and wholesale robbery of a
father by a trusted son.' - . -
The case occupied a great portion
of the day and consisted mainly in
the evidence W Mr. John F. Polk
relative to his dealings with his son,
Milton D., "editor of the. Evening
News, showing' that he had let Mil-
; .ton D. have 1S,o4U. it appears mat
M. O'Donhoe brings the case to set
-.' aside certain deeds executed by
; Milton D.Polk to his father, John
F, and by John F. to one Leason, a
ibrther-in-law in .Indiana. The
Lection is in the nature of a creditor's
' ! . bill O'Donohoe having a judgment
a trains t M.D. Polk for some $500,
" . 1 ... ... 1 a 1 A .L. l..-'.(an nl
jind claiming uiui uic uauotiow
1 -certain real estate from son io fath
;'Lr and from father to brother-in-
law, was made for the purpose of ;
preventing the creditors of M I). ,
Polk from realizing on their claims ;
against. the n:iiI M. I). Polk. The
evidence-of 'John F. Polk was re
markable in tint it went to show
that he had trusted his hod with ;
various sums of money since she
year 1884. always to realize thai he
had been victimized and dereive-l; .
that money he had iutrui-led hi :i ,
with had been misapplied and I
that he had paid note which .! ,
appeared again! him that he I'.nl
never executed and that ev.-ry tm-t
reposed in hix hoii hal been alu- I
and betrayed, ho lhat finally Ite ! i - 1 1
taken a conveyance of the property ;
in controversy which "was heavil ;
incumbered, as the only report he
had to recover anj of his lout funds ,
and it is this property the creditor
now seek to uncover and appropri
ate to their own use.
As a' sensational and remarks! I, le
suit the records ot our Cass coun y
court fails to show its equal. The
universal expression of spectator
and lawyers was that ot sympathy
for the old father and condemnation
for the unworthy son.
Gold Found In Livingston Heiff ts-
. For the past week a number of
miners have been around town
Alley unvc wcijr uici, uviw...
could be gotten out of them, buta
rumor was put afloat the other day
that they were prospecting for coal
nni i ..i 1, . ..
in Livingston Heights, but as
Ricrns of diccinc for coal could not
r rr r-
be seen anywhere ana the miners
kept so close-mouthed, it raised a
suspicion in the minds of some of
our visionary citizens, who got up
early this mornipg and watched the
supposed coal diggers. They were
seen making their way up the rail
road track till they came to Living
ingston Heights, where they began
to examine the numerous springs
along the foot of the bluffs. The
citizens came up and asked what
they had found and were told
"Gold." The miners said that there
was gold in the hills "and that the
water washed it out at the springs
and that 500 miners from California
would be here soon to dig into the
hills, beginning at one of the
springs, and that they expected to
find gold in large quantities. This
was given to a reporter ot ihe
Herald as a fact, but it is a fake.

The Lancaster delegation spent
several bad quarter hours in parlor
2 of the Paxton this afternoon. Sil
ver was the great bone of conten
tion, and many earnest speeches
floated through the key hole for the
edification of the knot of interested
listners on the outside. The dele
gation seemed bound to sit down
on Mr. Bryan and sit down on him
hard, but he held his ground val
iantly. He was for free silver and
didn't, care who knew it, and said
that he would take the question in
to the convention regardless of con
sequences or expense. At 6 o'clock
the watchers retired from the door,
Mr. Sawyer still held the floor, talk
ing hard money for the obstinate
and utterly unreasonable majority.
When the delegation finally
emerged it was to announce that
Sawyer was named for member of
the committee on resolutions, re
ceiving eleven votes agiinst seven
for Bryan. Bryan was bound by
the unit rule, but declared that it
would not prevent him from talk
ing for free coinage in the con
vention. The prettiest and largest line of
