SHOT ON HIS WAY HOME.
Some Unknown Man Shot AI
( O'Neil Last Night.
i vv n MAN.
Mr. O'Neil Hasa Lucky Escape From
What NI ght Have Caused In
stant Death The Weap
on a 44 Calibre.
Last night, between 11 and 12
o'clock, Al O'Neil was Hhot by some
man to him unknown.
Mr. O'Neil started home, having
in hiH possession several pairs of
shoes, and while walking along
Lincoln avenue he waa overtaken
near Frank 1 lager's residence by
the man who done the shooting.
Mr. O'Neil's story is as follows:
He says that the man when he
passed him was muttering' some
thing that he could not understand;
that the fellow had a bundle under
each arm and as he passed by and
when only a few fe-t in trout of him
he fired a shot toward the ground.
The fellow seemed to be carrying
the revolver in his hand or in his
pants pocket, for he fired the shot
without moving his arm. The man
then walked on about ten feet and
turned around and asked O'Neil
what he was following him for, also
stating at the same time that if he
took another step he would kill him
O'Neil told him that he was not fol
lowing him; that he was going home;
that he only lived a short distance
from where they were and that if
he killed him he would kill an in
nocent man. The man then started
to go, as did also O'Neil, but the
fellow turned and fired two shots,
the first one just grazing O'Neil's
head and the next one striking him
about three inches to the right of
the left nipple. After firing the
s-hots the man started on the run
toward Auirust Bach's store.
Dr. Schildknecht was called and !
dressed the wound. The ball en
tered the left breast and, striking
a bone, glaneed and went around
and was taken out at his back, just
above the left kidney. The revolver
was a No. 44.
Aug ust Bach heard the shot and
got up and went to the window and
saw the fellow running up towards
his barn. Mr. Bach asked him who
he was and says he could not quite
understand the man but under
stood him to say his name was
Burke. Mr. Bach says he thought
that he spoke broken English, and
also stated that some one was try
ing to kill him.
This morning when Mr, Bach's
delivery' hoy went to the barn to
feed the horses he found the revol
ver lying near the barn, The ball
that Dr. Schildknecht took from the
wound exactly fitted the revolver
Mr. O'Neil had not been drinking
last night and says that if he would
see the man he would know him as
the shooting occurred under the
arch light on the avenue. Dr.
Schildknecht said that he was pos
itive that O'Neil had not been
drinking, fot if he had he could of
told it when dressing the wound.
A man was arrested last night and
taken before Mr. O'Neil but Mr.
O'Neil was positive that he was not
the m -.a.
About noon Win. Plager.a young
man that drives the delivery wagon
for ZuckwiHer & Luiz, was taken
out to the O'Neil residence for Mr.
O'Neil to identify but he was not the
man wanted. If the signs of the
times are right some sensational

Wreck on the M. P.
A disastrous wreck occurred on
the Missouri Pacific railroad, at Ne
braska City, resulting in the death
of one man and fatally scalding
another. Following is the account
taken from a morning paper:
The engine, a baggage and com
bination passenger and mail car of
the south bound Missouri Pacific
passenger train, in charge of Con
ductor Railbuck, were almost total
ly wreckedtbis afternoon just as the
train came around the curve on
Second street, about 1C3 yards north
o' the depot. The engine ran into a
freight car on the side track and
turned over on its side across V..e
track. The baggage car turned over
on the other side of the track, while
the combination car remained on
As these two cars were being tak
en to another division they were en
tirely empty. Fugineer Mike Allen
of Kansas City crawled from under
the engine with his hands and back
of his head badly scalded, while
Fireman Charlie Meyers of Atchison
was found under the dome of the
engine where he had been scalded
Some of the passengers on the
regular coaches were' injured. The
north bound passenger came in on
time at 2:31 p m. and will wait until
a track is laid around the w eck.
Large crowds have been going
and coming from the scene of the
accident since it occurred.

2 ai Sjwaid Tuesday
A man who has been in the em
plo ol the singer Sewing Machine
coiupiiiiy in ilnsciiy has recently
goilen himself into a Jut ot trouble.
the man's name is diaries il
sey and he was married on the 17lh
of June, 18t'J, at laryvilJe, Mo., to
the woman who is now causing
him the trou oie.
j Not Jong ago he lelt for Seward in
i company wuli his wife's brother,
j and whii there leii in love with
and inariied a young lady of that
; cuy last Tuesday night,
j Wilsey iiotihed his wife by letter
th.s Aeek that she had better go, as
i he was to be married, and that the
law would be as hard on her as on
i him. lie claims that they were not
J married legally.
I Mr. and Mrs. Wilsey have always
1 lined in harmony. One time she
j asked him to let her see the mar
! riage certificate. This seemed to
anger him and he replied that she
j ouhgt to have confidence in him or
not have married him. She then
let the matter drop, thinking every
thing was all right. Mrs. Wilsey
says they were married at Mary
ville by a man named Williams
and that she had alwa3rs supposed
the marriage was legal.
Mrs. Wilsey. will in a short time
become a mother and if the mar
riage proves to be illegal she will
have him arrested, charged with
being the father of her unborn
It is also rumored that he has
been doing some crooked business
with the sewing machine compati3r.
A telegram was sent to the author
ities at Seward last night ordering
his arrest on the charge of bigamy.
Wilsey and his brother-in-law had
been rooming together at Seward'
and it had been noticed that Wilse3
had been string out late nights
but nothing was thought of it b3'
his wife's brother.
Last Tuesda3r Wilse3r sent his
brother-in-law here to help his wife
pack up the furniture in order to
move to Seward, and while he was
here Wilse3r was married at Seward.

If one may form an opinion of the
merits of the local ball club from
their preliminory work 3"esterda3r
at the ball park it would be thai
the3' a.'e all winners. It was prac
tical' their first day out on the
greeu sward and the3r took only a
little general practice, but that was
sufiicieut to show their metal.
Maupiu, Long, Kenned 3', Johnson,
John Patterson, l3'ers and Sam
Patterson showed up especiall3'
well. Fretz showed a lack of ex
perience but will no doubt blossom
out as well as the rest of the bo3'S
with a few weeks' work. Yapp
pracl'ced a liitle pitch'tig and
showed that lie still has good con
trol of that -drop ball that beat Hast
ings. M3'ers pitched a few balls
over the plate and, efter he had
warmed up a little, he couldn't be
touched. Perrine pitched a little
while but was wild as a steer.
When he gets 'em over the3' come
like cannn balls, though.
On Sunday the ''winders" will tiy
and scatter Jack Carrigan's Hayv
dens over tiie greeu earth. Tl"
Haj dens came near scalping Nor
man Baker at Fremont last Sunday
and may come near doing the bo3's
up tomorrow on account of lack of
practice. They have a st-ong team
and play good ball, Arthur
Creighton is advertised to catch for
them but the Omaha papers have
him down to catch for a team in
Omaha that da3 so Swarfs will
probably catch Snyder. Reeves
was to have pitched for Plattsmouth
but he has not at rived and either
M3rers or Yapp will do the twirling.
A large and enthusiastic meeting
of the bo38 who will make up the
minstrel show to benefit the ball
team, was held at the opera house
last night. After a little rehearsal
a programme was laid out and work
will be begun in earnest. The show
is sel for May 5 and will be a glori
