Ed Carr Goi Praa.
The case of the State vs. Ed. Carr
of Eagle, for the shooting of Andy
Hess was concluded Tuesday eve
ning. The case was stubbornly
fought to the bitter end on both
sides. Mr. Carr sat with a placid
smile of confideuee on his face and
his youngest child in his arms, all
through the afternoon, while the at
torneys ou oue aide were exertiug
every power and exhausting every
argument to blast his good name
and send him to the peuitentiary
and Mr. Sullivan for the defence,
plainly set forth the facts iu behalf
of Mr. Carr. Mr. Sullivan is a most
able attorney. If not as eloquent
as some, he can nail the facts to
the wall and set them out in bold
relief by the glaring light of intelli
The ouly fault that can be found
with Mr. Sullivan's argument is his
quotations from the bible; speaking
of the state bringing forth such
an "array of talent and dignity," he
saya: "The wicked flees wheu no
body pursueth after them." Mr.
Travis handled the case in a mas
terly manner setting forth the laws
of the atate covering such cases in
a most fair and uubiased argument;
and closed with; "this case tan be
no better tried in the courts
above than it has been tried
here." But Bryan, "our own
Billy Bryan," as the Journal says,
lay back in his chair, while Mr.
Travis was speaking, with his
liquid blue eyes studying the fresco
ing on the ceiling his massive Gree
ciau face at rest, his long, raven
locks (lowing loosely back from the
broad intelligent ;brow, his feet
among the law books ou the table
communing with the Gods of
poesy; he was a .study; truly a
study for the bards. Hon. W. J.
Bryan at length, arose iu his ma
jestic, stately manner, sipped a
little of Jupiters nectar, and pro
ceeded to outline iu detail, the du
ties devoting upon the judge. Then
boldly delving into the merits of
the case, he flourished the English
language in such a manner as to
fairly astound his listeners;
wreathes and gugaws, laces, frills
and draperies bouquets of Jonny-jump-ups
milk-meeds and dog
fennel were piled in such profus
ion that we were nearly driven from
the press table. He says, "The hu
man mind is so constructed that a
man can see best, that which he
wants to see"; we though that rath
er a personal remark, but we took
it in good part and kept still. When
he had finished decorating, Judge
Ramsey summed up the evidence,
went over each word, action and
circumstances in the case and
said that, "in his judgement Mr.
Carr could not and would not be
convicted before a jury, therefore
he did not see the necessity of en
tailing a needless expence upon the
county, and thought he was fulfill
ing his duty to the people and to
the parties concerned by setting
Mr. Carr at liberty. The verdict
gave general satisfaction.

Last Monday evening the old
council met to do business for the
last time. The minutes of the last
meeting were read by Clerk Fox and
approved by the council.
A petition was then introduced
to grade Sixteenth etreet between
Jones and Hickory, which was re
ferred to committee on streets and
alleys, after a hard struggle to sub
due Steimker and Longenhageu.
A petition by Ned Baker, signed
by about forty business men was
introduced, to allow Ned Baker to
operate a fruit stand adjoining the
Waterman building. By a motion
from Spies it was placed on tile.
Mrs. McCrosky's petifioii to have
her property excluded from taxa
tion by the city was referred to the
Ctty marsha and police judge
reported $33.00 collected on fines
during March and city treasurer's
report shows $19,065.71 to the credit
of the city.
The report of nuance committee
was then taken up and after much
squabbling over an overdraw of
$11.00 bo the street commissioner a
motion was made to accept bills as
reported by finance committee and
warrants be drawu for same. Mo
lne contract for removing gar
bage and contents of cess pools
was let to mike McCool at five cents
per cubic foot.
Contract for sidewalk construc
tion was let to W. H. Miller for 104
cents per foot.
The library ordinance was then
discussed and finally left over for
the new council.
At this juncture Jones (2d) had
to be called to order.
The mayor then appointed Jones
('2d), Peterson and Longenhageu to
act as convassing board. A tem
porary adjournment was taken till
completed. The results showed
that Messrs Davis and Burgess
were elected for school board, the
cemetery ordinance had carried,
and that Jones, Grimes, Bridge and
Mahoney were eke ted for the coun
cil. . The tie iti theEourth ward was
then discussed and a motion made
that ten slips of paper be cut and
the name of Washington Smith be
written on five and that of Lehn
hoff be written on the other five, the
whole ten to be shaken in a hat and
the clerk to draw five out, and the
one having a majority of the five
be declared elected. At this point
Mr. LehnhoiT arose and stated that
he considered that he had been
rightfully elected in the ward and
that as he did not receive justice at
the hands of the judges of election
in his ward, he did not feel that
he would get justice in the council.
He then offered to withdraw from
the contest and asked that his op
ponent be issued a certificate of
election. He then left the hall.
Mr. Smith absolutely refused to
accept the office in this manner and
a motion was made for the mayor
to appoint two men as tellers to
count the votes as the clerk drew
them. As the mayor was about to
comply, an echo from the press
table sayB iu a hoarse whisper:
"Butler! Butler! Don't pick
Jones, he's a hoodoo." Spies and
Lake were named as tellers and the
count resulted for our candidate-
A motion was then made that
Clerk Fox draw warrants to cover
election expenses. Carried.
The old council then died.
Spunk on Exhibition.
We would respectfully submit the
following for the perusal of our
friend Sherman, over by the post-
office. If he could be us honest in
his own conviction, to himself and
his supporters, we would consent
to take under advisement, the pos
sibility of some time being con
vinced that we ought to sign his
petition as postmaster:
Is the patronage plan degrad
ing? Let us see. Two months ago
every democratic editor in Ne
braska was denouncing J. Sterling
Mortou as a republican-corporation
stool piireoti. Then Morton is in
Cleveland's cabinet, with a hand on
the patronage throttle, and what
do we see? the disgusting spec
tacle of a majority of Morton's late
traducers dealing out columns of
flush and slush in honor to the
man they but a short while ago
consigned to political perdition.
And why? Simply because the bv
erage democratic editor wants an
office and is willing to sacrifice his
soul to get it. Two or three mouths
ago the Times expressed a belief
that Mr.Morton had made his
campaign last fall iu the interest
of the republican ticket. We hold to
that to-day, and no promise of
political preferment for self or
friends shall lead us to "crook the
pregnant hinges of the knee" before
the Nebraska member of the cab
inet Papillion Times.
A desasterous pratrie lire swept
through Keith county, destroying
many houses and barns, burning
up stock and grain till some of the
farmers are nearly destitute. An
old resident of this place Mrs.
Vandeventer in a letter to her
father Henry Shafer. says that their
barn, grain horses and cattle burn
ed and only by their untiring en
durance did they save the house
from the burning flames.

ceived another car load of Kansas

One evening last week a musicale
was given at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Steve Huztell. The forepart of
the evening was taken up with
small talk and social gossip. Misses
Virgie Tutt, Blanch Traver, Mrs.
Stella Dudley and Mr. Jacquett fa
vored us with Home operatic ejec
tions, followed by a piano solo by
Miss Jennie McEIwain. We were
then favored with u selection by
Miss Tillie Venard. Conversation
and small talk was again indulg
ed in, after which we were delight
ed with a piano solo from "Wagner"
by Mr. McKlwain. Mr. Buzzell
wanted to play but for reasoiiB we
would not divulge he did'nt. The

Mrs. Potter, who ran for mayor of
Kansas City, a week ago, got 23
votes out of nearly 9,000. The papers
describe her as having a mole on
her cheek weighing 200 pounds, and
a jaw that opened and shut like an
alligator's. No wonder she was de
