Sad Fat6 of a Young Woman of
i:iim: hyiieiI faitIIlksslovfii
Ida Ebrlght. a School Teacher, of Be
atrice Died at Omaha Yester
day In a Doctors Office
Name of. her Dispos
The Oninda correspondent to the
State Journal this morning1 eaj s:
Ida Kbright died in the office of
Dr. J. J. Carriker shortly after 2
o'clock to day under circumstances
that warrant the coroner in im.king
a thorough investigation. So far
the facts learned from the girl's
relatives and brought out by the
testimony of the witnesses the cor
oner has examined have only gone
to show that the girl's death was
the result of her own foil'. Iiss
Kbright was about nineteen years
of age ami taught school for a liv
ing. She was last employed in the
public schools at Odell, Neb. She
is spoken of highly by those who
knew her at her home near Heatrice,
where her family is considered
ultra respectable, but she was a
pieer girl, piet and one who made
no confidant of anybody, so very
little can be told of her trouble.
S1IK NEEDED ASSISTANCE.
Dr. Carriker, in whose office she
died, said to the coroner's jury that
Miss Kbright came to his office four
davs airo and asked him to help her.
. She said she was pregnant and she
had several times tried to produce an
abortion, both by mechanical means
and by drugs. She seemed to be
suffering then from the effects of the
drugs she had taken. The doctor
refused to aid her in her criminal
intent, but offered to restore her to
She left, but to-day returned, ac
companied by her married sister,
Mrs. DuKe, of Heatrice. While the
three were talking over Ida's
troubles, the latter fell forward in a
faint on the floor, and died in a few
moments. Dr. Carricker said death
either resulted from heart disease
or from the effects of her attempts
to rid herself from her trouble. Mrs.
Duke testified that her sister had al
ways been delicate and for years
had suffered from a functional de
rangement of the heart.
CAl'E OF 1IEK DOWNFALL.
Mrs. Duke and her mother had
taxed Ida with being in a delicate
condition and had sought to obtain
from her a confession. This the
girl had strenuously denied, but a
short time ago she confessed to
Mrs. Duke that her lover, a travel
ing man named Levy who lives in
Beatrice, had drugged and as
saulted her last March. Levy had
been forbidden to come to the
house by Ida's parents on account
of dissolute habits.
At this point the coroner deter
mined to hold a post mortem ex-

advised the girl to attempt a crimi
nal operation on herself. The city
detectives are searching for the
house where Miss Kbright stopped
while in Omaha. Her address is
not known. Mrs. Duke only came
here to-day and found her sister on
South Sixteenth street en route to
the doctor's office. An earnest ef
fort to ferret out the true story and
fasten the responsibility tor the
crime on some one will be made.
Attacked by Soldiers.
Last night the soldiers and citi
zens indulged in a small riot at
Bellevue as the following will show:

where thev had been drinking beer.
Only a few shots were exchanged
when the boys started to run, 101
lowed by the soldiers. James Whet
stone, a brother of the others, liear-
inir the shooting went up to see
what was the trouble and was struck
over the head with a club by a hos
pital steward and .knocked sense
less, in which condition he still re
mains. The steward was arrested
during the night by Sheriff McCarty
and Marshall Patrick on the charge
of assault with intent to commit
murder and is under guard await

aaaoon as the prosecuting attorney

Tne Journal last night quoted
Judge Wright of Wahoo as saying
that if he was in this district he
would vote for Hryan even if he
was a republican. The fact of the
matter is Judge Wright is a chronic
office seeker. When he went to Wa
hoo the republicans elected him
county judge, and because they re
fused to give him anything else he
went to the independent party last
year, and he failed torecieve a nom
ination from them and now he is a
rip-roaring democrat. Instead of
being a republican he is a dis
