A Bellevue "Crook."
A joM watch valued at ifVi was
tolen from Hit" office of Keef &
IcGarvey at Fort Crook bi t ween 1'J
fund I o'clock rmlay by Harry
Wales, a laborer. Tlie. watch be-
Jonired to fames Ilonnafm, time-
Jiecper of the firm. A somewhat
eiirioiirt circumstance in connection
with the theft is that another
laborer, whose name could not be
1-nvned, saw Wales take the watch
vfit failed to notify Mr. Ilonnafm
until Wales had time to make good
his escape. A warrant was imme
diately procured and otVicers started
in (pursuit. Wales is about live feet
seven inches tall, weighs about Kii'l,
wore a blue shirt and white straw
hat, has a red face, dark hair and
jniMT - nose. He headed toward
( maha and had three hours start of
the .sheriff.
Saturday about 4 o'clock a. in. Of
ficer Hlack of tin I'lattMiiotith po
lice force noticed a man evidently
trying to conceal himself from his
view between the freight cars, just
north of the H. A: !. depot. The olli

no answer, lie then walked up to
the carsand ordered the man out.
The stranger still refused to speak

pulled in from the east, but Hlack is
sure his man didn't get on it. The
officer continued to search for the
escaped prisoner, but did not find
him. lie is supposed to be the
Hellevue thief. The victim of that
'robbery was telegraphed to come
here and get the watch if lie can
identify the property.
lJ Munn Loses His Cue
Judge Kanisey has decided the
suit of Eugene Munn vs. Cass
county in favor of the county.
Munn recently lost four steers by
the falling down of the bridge over
the Weeping Water at Xehawka
and this suit was to recover if-i"
The court held that the county
win not liable for the reason that
1 1
the commissioners had no noticeof
he bridge being in an unsafe con
ition and they had not been negli
The court held that this was
really the only point necessary for
the county to prove in the present
instance to win the case. It also
held that notice, actual or con
ilj structive, must have reached the
jr commissioner) or proof be ftir
L" nislied that they had been negli
l Rent in the performance of duty.
And that even this would not
necessarily give the defendant cause
sufficient to recover. The supreme
court had held in a case sent up
from Colfax county that negligence
did not give sufficient ground for
fw recovery of damages.
' The testimony of Mr. Dutton,
negatived the negligence theory.
He ' testified that the bridge had
been examined in the spring and
no apparent defect discovered
The facts in the case showed that
the cross pieces were unsound, but
b:it it would not have been llU-
jTy parent, even to an expert inspector
( without a very particular inspec-
J tion. The rottenness was on the
inside and hidden from view. The
.outside ends appeared and were
perfectly sound.
Sawtelle In Jail.
Constable Kroeliler returned Fri
day from Denver having in charge
Geo. W. Sawtelle, who shot Geor
Casford some tune since. As was
predicted by Tiik Hkkalp Mrs
Sawtelle was settling up matters in ,
order that her husband might come
Hy consent of the attorney, the
hearing has been postponed until
next Friday at Id o'clock. Heeson
A Koot will defend Sawtelle and
County Attorney Travis will prose
cute. Mr. Heeson told a representative
of this paper that it was s 1 1 foolish
ness to go to Heaver after tip' man,
i as he intended to come lodi. lie
also stati'd, when asked for infor-
ination, that he had advised Saw
.J telle not to talk, and that therefore
he would be unable to give any in
formation himself. Mr. lfeeson also
stated that the officers had a chance
to catch him at Ashland but waited
until he had got further away so tl e
fees would roll up, and the state
would be put to a big expense.
Sawtelle, he aid, only went away
because he thought he had done
more damage than was done.
TheWestEnd Church.
Friday night the ladies of the
West End Presbyterian church,
near Oak Hill cemetery, gave an
ice cream social. Many attended
and there was added quite a sum to
the building fund of the church
treasury. This church now has
quite a congregation and its Sunday-school
has an interesting ses
sion every Sunday. The church
has not at present a regular pastor,
but services are held very regular
ly, different ministers volunteering
to till the pulpit, and the interest is
constantly growing. The building
is not et I'm i shed inside. The ladies
are now engaged in an effort to
swell the building fund of the treas
ury to such an extent that the work
can be (lone before cold weather.
The sidewalk reaches from the
center of til.-city to the very doors
of this church and the people of
down town can ea-ily visit this
young member of the Christian
circle, and a cordial ins it.itioii is ex
tended them to do so.

Ashland, Valley View, University

by the leagues, led by I. M. Harris

South Omaha. The meetingB are
conducted by Kev. II. A. Powers.
Many are being converted. The

The End of the Division.
Thk HERALD has information to
the effect that if an earnest effort is
made there is a good chance f,or
Plattsmouth to be made the end of
tho regular division. This is some
thing worth striving for. Let
Messrs. Windham and Murphy get
their committees together and pay
a visit to the H.AM, officials and
learn what can and must be done to
insure success.

Tin supreme court has been
called upon to decide whether or
not it is a criminal intense under i
the laws of Nebraska tor a man to
"feloniously" kill a dog. A case
which has already attained some
celebrity in Gage county reached
the clerk of the supreme court at
Lincoln yesterday morning. K.irly
in the month of January of the pres
sent year D.ivi.l Nehr shot ami
killed a dog belonging to Johu
Dobbs in Heatriee. For this he
was indicted, tried, found guilty
and sentenced to pay a fine of
and costs and to serve a sentence of
live days in the county jail at hard
labor. Nehr's attorneys moved for
a new trial of the case before the
district court, but their motion was
denied. They now bring the ease
to the supreme court. In their
petition filed they allege
among other things ihat the ver
dict, judgment and sentence are
contrary to and unsupported by
law or sufficient facts to constitute
a crime.

Commissioner Loderhas returned
to Plattsmouth from a visit to
Greenwood, where he has been en

out a new road or straightening
an old one, to be more exact peti

criticisms of the Maylields of Kim

Johnce Hosteter, an employe of
Kd. Snakelow's steam threshing
outfit, barely escaped beingcrtished
to death at De Wight Young's place
four miles west of Hellevue yester
day, Hosteter was hauling wate
for the engine and had just re
turned from the spring with a tan
full when he noticed that a bolt
which couples the front trucks to
the tank was working out. He
crawled under the tank to fix it when
the horses stepped forward, letting
the tank, which when filled weighs
about L0:m pounds, fall on Hosteter.
Fortunately he was so far forward
it did not fall squrely on body
and only his left foot was caught
under the corner of the tank and
his back was some.vhat bruised. If
In; had been back under the truck
four inches further he would have
been instantly killed.
