effort to bolster up ex-Judge Chapman
and excuse some of the criticisms that
had been made against him, printed
the following from tho Nebraska City

as his reason that John C.Watson in all of the law
suits makes such a strenuous tight, and cites such
indisputable authorities to back up ins conten

w itnesse and courteous demeanor to the court
and the jury, that it is a very hopeless case when

the judge, "that it would be next to impossible
for a court to remain in Nebraska City any

that John Watson does not reside in iny district.

The body of our esteemed townsman,
Frank Wolcott, was found in the
Weeping Water creek near Joyce's ice
houso Wednesday afternoon shortly
after 1 o'clock. Mr. Wolcott had gone
to the pasture with the hired man in
the morning to show him about fixing
some lence. About u o ciock ne was
over watching Mr. Joyce's men at
work, and the last seen of him he was
sitting under a treo on tho bank near
where tho body was found.
Mr. Wolcott has not boon very well
for some time, and it is supposed that
he became dizzy while resting on the
creek bank and fell into tho water and
and that his strength was not sufficient
to extricate himself. Mr. Wolcott was
ono of the first settlers in this place
and none were more highly esteemed
and tho sad affair has preatly shocked
