The railroad officials have fully
investigated the cause of the acci
dent near Plattsmouth the other day
and have exonerated Engineer H.T.
Mayfield from blame. It was shown
that he attempted to move forward
to escape the crash after the train
broke in two, but was unable to do
so because the air brakes could not
be freed and held the front end of
the train fast. It is said by railroad
men to have been an unavoidable
accident. Lincoln Journal.

above were a part of those arrested
last night by the officers. C. S.
Polk represted the city and Louis
Piatt of Omaha defended. The city
had a good case against the prison
ers and would convicted every one
of them but the city attorney failed
to prove by his witnesses that
the crime was committed
in Plattsmouth, Cass county, Ne
braska. The attorney for the defen
dants refused to cross-examine the
city's witnesses, as he had another
object in view. As soon as the city
rested its case, Attorney Piatt made
a motion that the defendants be
dismissed, as the city hadfailed to
prove where the crimes had been
committed. Attorney Piatt told a
HERALD reporter that there was no
doubt in his mind but what the ma
jority of the defendants were guilty.
The was too smooth for the city
attorney and had his clients dis
charged. District Court.
