Charges Against O'Brien.
The Lincoln News says: Charges
of an unknown nature, sufficient, it is
said, if true, to warrant his removal,
have been tiled with the governor
against Superintendent AV. J.O'Krien
of the state tish hatchery.
Just what those charges arc is a se
cret, locked up in in the breasts of
Governor Savage. Mr. O'Kricn and the
men who made them. The governor
decljnes to say what the charges are
and who made them, and Mr. O'Brien
is not here to tell.
A hearing was slated to be had on
Tuesday, but the parties making the
charges were unable to le present on
that date, and hearing was postponed
until July nth.
Mr. O'Brien's brother, M. E.
O'Brien, was superintendent for a
number of years, and was succeeded
by himself. Henry Hemple preferred
charges against him and endeavored
to get the place w hen he w as removed,
but a democrat from Omaha was
named by (iovernor Poynter. I'nder

May Lose a Leg.
A little less than a month ago En
gineer F. W. Smith of the Hurlinoton
was bitten on Lis right leg by a dog.
The wound has become so serious that
amputation may liecoine necessary.
For more than a week after the occur
rence the engineer remained at his
post, although he was very lame, and
moved around w ith much difficulty.
Finally, he had to give up, and has
since t'en confined to his home at
Lincoln, while the wound has liecome
The biting happened at (Jibson.
Smith was on his way from his train
to a dining hall patronized by railroad
men, when he was beset by a dog,
entirely without provocation. With
one snap of his jaws the beast seized
Mr. Smith just below the knee and
stubbornly refused to release him. it
was onry by the application of a club
that the animal was persuaded to
desist. For fear of a worse lacera
tion Smith did not try to tear away
from the dog, but waited until he was
rescued by men with clubs. It was a
deep and jagged wound, but at the
time the engineer did not look to have
anv trouble with it.
Prisoner Is Pardoned.
Benjamin J. Valek. sentenced to
imprisonment in the penitentiary for
seven years for perjury, under extenu
ating circumstances, was married to
Maria Illavaty, a Bohemian widow,
living at Dawson, Nebraska. on .Mon-
j day, in the governor's ofTVe. Immed
iately after the marriage (iovernor
Savage commuted the sentence of the
prisoner to one year and five months,
which time he had already served, al
lowing him his liberty at once. The
commutation was granted on the ex
press condition that the prisoner, who
has been out on parole, would return
and marry the widow, who possesses
some $40,000 worth of realty.

Will Retire From Business.
Joe Klein has been appointed a gen
eral agent for the Equitable Life As
surance society of the United States,
with territory covering Nebraska and
the Black Hills, and while he will con
tinue his residence in Plattsmouth,his
duties will require him to travel al
Owing to the fact that his absence
from the city will not allow him tode
vote the necessary time to his gents'
furnishing goods business, he has de
cided to dispose of his stock of goods
at auction, and retire from business.
He has arranged for daily auction
sales, commencing Saturday morning
and continuing until all the goods
have been disposed of.
Mr. Klein has been engaged in the
clothing and furnishing business in
Plattsmouth for a dozen years past,
and enjoyed quite an extensive trade.
During the past six months he has
been a local agent for the Equitable
company, and has met with good suc
cess, writing considerable business in
Cass and Otoe counties. His Platts
mouth friends wish him all kinds of
success in his new field.
Log Rolling Date Changed.
The date of the Cass county log roll
ing, to be held at Louisville this year,
has been changed from Sept. 11th to
Sept. 18th. The change in the date is
made to accommodate people from
Plattsmouth who would like to at
tend, and as the 11th will be B. & M.
pay day, many of the shop men and
businessmen could not conveniently
get away on that date. ,

Compliments Our Band.
The Lincoln Blizzard says: The B.
& M. enginemen celebrated the
4th at Lincoln Park in good style.
There were all kinds of amusements,)
including horse, bicycle and automo-1
bile races Music was furnished by
the Plattsmouth and McCook bands.
The McCook band was long on uni
formswhite pants and gay coats
but it remained for the Plattsmouth
boys to furnish the music. The Platts
mouth boys are all right, and it's play
for them to play. With them music
seems to roll out as easy and smooth
as a drop of oil spreads over the sur
face of a placid pool of water.
The only deficit the Blizzard noticed
in the Plattsmouth aggregation, Frank
Ballance could not "balance" his
basso drumo very well and called Clar
ley Sullivan to his assistance. It is
needless to remark that both the boys
were beastly sober at the time.
Drum Major Saunders did the artis
tic act very artistically. He does not
possess the physique of our own fiild
erslecve, but he has the action and the
tactics down to a nicety. The Platts
mouth band did credit to itself and
its home during its visit to Lincoln.

J. K. Pollock is Injured.
From information received from
Dead wood papers it is learned that J.
K. Pollock, formerly of this city, was
the victim of a somewhat painful ac
cident, which may result in giving him
a change of facial features. Jim and
Charles Vallery wereoutdriving.when
the kingbolt of the rig broke, allow
ing the front wheels to be pulled out
from under the bed, causing the occu
pants to pitch forward. At the time
of the accident Jim was holding a gun
and in falling the hammer of the gun
came in contact with his nose in such
manner to severely injure that facial
organ. He is now at the Ieadwood
hospital for treatment. Vallery was
knocked senseless, but sustained no

Joe Brodback Fined.
The feud which has existed for some
time past betw een Joe and Mike Brod
back and Max Pries has been renew ed,
and another added to the long list of
personal encounters between the par
ties, who live at Cedar Creek, where
they are employed in the quarries.
Joe and Mike were arrested on com
plaint of Pries, charged with assault
and brought before Justice M.Archer
for trial. Joe admitted having given
Max a punch in the nose without just
provocation, entered a plea of guilty,
and was lined $10 and cost a total of
$19 which he paid. Mike plead not
guilty, and his trial was set for Satur-da3-,
but on Wednesday an amicable
adjustment of the matter was ar
ranged and the charge against him
dismissed. All of the parties prom
ised henceforth to be good, and to live
in peace and harmony.
It cost Henry Hoggett about $30 to
celebrate. Henry is original and when
he does a thing, wants to do it proper.
He stood at the foot of the steps in the
basement at the rear of the City Na
tional bank, lit the fuse to a stick of
dynamite, and tossed it out into the
street. The report had the effect of
draw ing about 200 people around the
spot, where they beheld about fifteen
broken window lights alxjve and lw
low, in the building. Henry said he
"didn't think the blamed thing would
do it." The report exceeded anything

Death of Isaac Julyan.
Isaac Julyan died suddenly early
Thursday morning of apoplexy. Mr.
Ju'yan arose about 11 o'clock Wednes
day night and sat down near the door.
The next morning when Mrs. Julyan
awoke she found her husband lying on
the Moor, and, thinking he was asleep,
did not disturb him.
Soon after breakfast, Mrs. Julyan
called on a neighbor and informed her
that her husband was lying on the
floor and refused to talk. Dr. Cummins
was quickly summoned, but the physi
ciaa could do nothing, as he had ap
parently been dead for several hours.
Apoplexy is thought to have been tde
cause of his death.
Deceased was about seventy years or
age, and had resided in this city for
seventeen years. He resided on Elm,
between Jth and 10th streets. His
wife, one son and two daughters are

Car of Horses Burned.
A car containing twenty seven head
of horses, attached to train No. 70,
east-bound, Thursday afternoon, was
discovered to be on fire just before the
train reached the city. All haste was
made to cut the car out of the train,
'but the lire had made such headway
i that most of the horses were dead be
j fore the tire was discovered. Several
j horses were gotten out alive, although
! burned somew hat.and an effort made to
save thein. Later on they were con
s dered hopeless, and were shot to put
an end to their sufferings.
