His Probable Fato.
Six informations were filed
against Alexander IJcrkman yester
day by Secretary Lovejoy, of the
Carnegie company, charging felo
nious assault on Frick and Leish
inan and entering the building for
the purpose of committing assault.
If llerkiiiaii gets the limit on these
informations he will have thirty
three years' time to rellect.
Kumors are in circulation that
some anarchist from Chicago will
go to Pittsburg suid an attempt
will be made to pass dynamite in to
the prisoner. The authorities take
little stock in the story, but will
take due precaution.
Yesterday afternoon detectives
arrested C asper Knold, a workman
at Taylor & Dean's wire mill, on the
charge of being an accomplice of
IJerknian. Knold says lierknian
came to him Inly 14 with a letter of
introduction from Herr Most. He
staved with Knold until last
Thursday. Friday Knold met him
up town and pointed out Carnegie's
office to him. Knold claims to
hae destroyed Ilerr Most's letter.
Paul Kckert, who rents rooms to
Knold and his wife, was also ar
rested, but soon afterwards re
The fact that Herkmau presented
a letter from Most substantiates the
hitter's claim that he is acquainted
with the prisoner and reflects upon
the veracity of Herkman, who as
serted tnat lie Had never met most.
Other arrests are looked lor soon.
Later The police searched
Knold's house and discovered a
large amount of anarchistic litera
ture, some of the most incendiary
description. Among the stuif cap
tured were letters from anarchists
in Chicago, New York, Hoboken
and other places. Knold admitted
that he received several letters
from Most concerning Herkman,
md that Most told him Herkmau
was a bad man.

This part of Polk's mismanage

f tsonemian Catholic Society Vlsit-
Ing Plattsmouth Is Shamefully
"One of the most disgraceful af
fairs in the history of this state took
place yesterday at IMattsiiiouth. and
the Public is sorry to say there was
not tne slightest cause for the same,
and the perpetrators of this hiirh
handed outrage should be severely
i esteruay mere was an excursion
and picnic to Plattsmouth by a Bo-
liemian Catholic society known as
the Bohemian Kniirhts of St
George, which is composed of some
of the representative business men
of this city, all of whom are respon
sible young gentlemen.
inuring tne course oi tne day an
altercation was brought about be
tween one ot the picnickers and a
Plattsmouth tough, who thoghut he
could insult the Omaha man with
impunity because he was a Chris
tian. His insult was resented, how
ever, and everythinir was supposed
to have been smoothed over.
When the time of departure ar-
rived, and the party was aboard tne
train, a body ot armed so-called
constables made their appearance
and commanded the engineer, at the
point ot a gun, to uncouple ms en
gine from the train, after which they
mounted the cars and arrested
twenty of the excursionists, throw
ing guns at their heads, and in one
instance, a young musician, who
had not been out of the band stand
all clay, was clubbed unmercifully
by the brutal constables.
All were more or less injured.
They were thrown in jail without
any pretense of haviutr a hearing;.
One of the party had to put up $1LJ
which he had with him to secure
This diso-raceful and uncalled for
attack on a party of Christian
young men should be dealt with as
it deserves, and the righteous in
dignation of the Bohemian inhabi
tants of this city is heard on all
sitles. The end is not yet. The
foregoing facts were obtained by a
Public reporter from a reputable
gentleman ot Omaha, who was
present and witnessed the outrage."
The above is taken from the
Omaha Public, a paper recently
started and a follower of the calam
ity howlers. The Public states two
facts correct ly. First, there was a
picnic, and second, an altercation
did occur. The Plattsmouth tough
tney mention was or the same
nationality as the picnickers, and
also a Catholic. The paper also
says that the officers appeared, and,
with the muzzles of their gtins in
the engineer's face, ordered him to
detach his ene;ine from the rest of
the train. What a damnable lie!
The fresh young man who wrote
the above must have just finished
reading one of ''Old Sleuth's" nar
row escapes or an attack made by
the notorious Daltou gang. Or
again, his distorted imagination
ma)' have been ciiused by his pres
ence at the picnic with a number of
the other toughs and drinking so
much that his head was swelled.
The paper says it was a disgraceful
attack upon a party of Christian
young men. They may have been
a party of Christian young men.
but they evidently forgot the first
principles of Christianity judging
from the way they carried on here,
interfering with the officers and
throwing brick bats and otherwise
disporting themselves in anything
but a Christian manner. Those ar
rested were a gang of loughs who
cared nothing about the law, as
evidenced hy a mob of about sixty
of them jumping upon four, officers
who were doing their duty. In the
scrimmage which followed the offi
cers came out second best with
badly bruised faces, while these
gentle, inoffensive, "Christian
young men" came out without a
scratch. Yes, it was an outrage,
and a disgraceful one at that, but
instead of the officers causing it, as
the Public says, it was caused by
the thugs and toughs who came
down with the society.
