"I nm in tho best of hoalth and have

"Yoftorduy (December (5) we sighted

that wo will not bo ablo to go ashore

can never regret; if we are timong the

Attorney ienerul'n Arguments.
Tiie arguments in the habeas corpus
case of Corporal Fair aud Private
Jot-kins were continued yesterday in
federal court at Lincoln. Attorney
Genoral Smyth on behalf of the state,
made tho principal speech. Mr
Smythe argued along the line that If
there was a federal law governing the
matters in controversy, tho defend
ants did not act within it. Mr. Smyth
laid considerable stress upon the poin
that when the shooting was done, the
two prisoners were not sentinels whose
acts are covered in the guard rules
Morgan had escaped and was shot in
cold blood four miles from the fort
Considerable time was spent in accord
ance with a wish of Judge Munger in
defining "escape" nnd "escaping". I
was held that when Morgan bad gotten
beyond the range of the guns of tho
sentry, ho was an e-caped prisoner
The only justification of the act was
that the order f the sergeant to Cor
porai Fair was loal. It was argued
that the superior muscular force of tho
two soldiers was not put into effect to
capture Morgan before shooting was
resorted to. The fact thtt identifica
tioQ of the man shot whs not entirely
complete when the order was given
was commented upon. After the death
there was no coroner's jury and none
of the usual things that accompany a
death of that nature.
Attorney General Smyth said that
article 59 of tho guard manual had
committed to the state authorities the
investigation of offenses by soldiers off
tho military reservation. Mr. Smvth
said there was no army regulation giv
ing the army the right to pursue and
arrest a deserter after escape. The
claim that Corporal Fair tried to find
a civil officer was ridiculed.
The opportunity for reply was given
to District Attorney Summers. Node
cision is expected for a short time as
tho case involves important points on
which a number of legal cases have

For Arre.Mtiiitf Irof. HIalr.

Received From the Missouri Sheriff
One of the MeU(M Asked the Mar
hal to Arrest and Bold Blalr--Othrr
In yesterday's News there appeared
an article stating that the father of
Professor Blair, the magnetic healer.
was in the city, intent upon securing
fcts which would warrant him in
suing Marshal Slater and his bonds
men for fal9e imprisonment. Tho
facts, so far as the marshal is con
cerned, appear to be about sufficient
to warrant that officer in arresting
Blair, as he was wanted in Missouri
to answer to a very Berious charge.
When Blair opened an office here he
was a stranger and nothing was known
as to his antecedents. He had not
been here very long when the marshal
received a letter from Bun Smith,
prosecuting attorney for Clark county,
Missouri, asking for his apprehension.
The letter reads as follows:
Kahoka, Mo , Deo. 27, 1899.
C.ty Maibbal, Platlsmouth, Neb.
Dear Sir: We want a man by the
name of Charles E. Blair. He prac
ticed law for soldo time Here; then
went to Kansas City, Mo., and we un
derstand be Is now in your city. If so,
arrest him and wire me at once. He
is wanted here for embezzlement and
for gery. He is posing as a magnetic
heater at present. He is about five
feet, eight inches in height; weighs
about 170 pounds; brown hair; cloudy
gray eyes. Goes well drressed and
usually walks with a cane. He is a
smooth follow and will deceive you if
you are not particular and stay on
your guard. Please givo this matter
your personal attention and oblige.
Yours. Verv Respectfully,
JonN F. Kelly, Sheriff.
Per. Ben Smitit,
At once, upon receipt of this letter,
Marshal Slater located Blair and, in
stead of placing him under arrest, he
telegraphed the prosecuting attorney
at Kahoka that he had Blair located
and awaited further instructions. The
following day J. F. Kelly, the sheriff,
telegraphed tho marshal as follows:
Kahoka, Mo., Dec. 28. 1899. To
City Marshal: Arrest and hold until
my arrival Dr. Charles E. Blair, mag
netic healer, for forgery and embezzle
ment. Answer Immediately.
J. F. Kelly, Sher.ff.
Having secured grounds upon which
to hold his man. Marshal Slater at
once placed Blair under arrest. Tnis
worthy protested vigorously against
going to Jiil, ard it was finally deci
(led by the Marshal to allow him to
remain at the hotel under the custody
of Officer Fit zpatrictf ,as ame enceoni
modation to Blair. He was permftted
to retain his liberty, except that the
officer accompanied him wherever he
went. The Clark officer found it im
p tssible to get bee when he intended
and on the 29th he telegraphed Mar
shal Slater a follows:
Kahoka, Mo., Doc. 29. 1899 To
City Marsha': Will arrive at Platts
mouth tomorrow morning, at 7:40
Jno. F. Kelly, Sheriff.
The next morning he arrived, as pe
his telegram, and took Blair back
So far as Marshal Slater is concerned
the matter ended there. He acted
upon the description and charges pre
ferred against Blair as he should have
done. It would hardly seem that the
Marshal, in the exercise of his duties
could have done little else than he
did. If he was not authorized to ar
rest a man upon charges so serious as
the foregoing, set out especially when
there was no reasonable doubt as to
the man's idontity, then it would bo
possible for criminals to walk the
streets in perfei-t security, regardless
of tho officers and the law.
It is improbable that the young
man's father will do anything with
his threatened prosecution of the mar
shai and his bondsmen. A case can'
not be made out against them, as no
damages were inflicted upon Blair
and be never entered th? jail, but was
permitted to stay at tho hotel, al
though under surveillance. Blair, sr.,
is evidently a great big bluffer.
INFORMATION and opinion.
In Pennsylvania a new telephone
transmitter has been devised and is
beint? manufactured. It is so con
structed that the outer casing and
mouthpieces may be removed for the
purpose of cleaning without disturbing
the diaphragm and carbon parts in an
nner casing independent of the outer
shell. The diaphragm is held in
place by a threaded ring which screws
n the inner casing. It is, therefore,
ndependent of the adjustment of the
mouthpiece or any other condition of
the outer eating. The manufacturer
adjusts tho instrument, and no subse
quent adjustment is needed.
In New York a doctor has sent a let
ter to the park board proposing a sys
tem of signals in the park, which will
do away with much of the uncertainty
regarding runaways. He suggested
that at the reservoirs there be sta
tioned alarm bells, which will ring
under certain conditions, and that
they be electrically equipped and con
nected with various stations along the
different roads. At each station will
be detailed a saddle horse and rider.
probably from the police department,
and as Boon as the bell rings the horse
will be released, somewhat as with the
system in vogue in the fire department
Those in carriages and horseback ri

A recent itsue of the Chicago Times
Ilera'd stated that there had been a
change in the policy that is to govern

claiming that the W. C. T. U. had not
kept its promises as to what should bo

S M. Walker, writes from Chicago
that the press hasti misrepresented
things. Tiik News takes tho follow
