Those present were: Dr. and Mrs.

John P. Thacker the man shot
by John Clarence on Friday last,
died at his home five miles north-!
east of Union, at 12:30 this morning.
From night before last he had grown
steadily weaker and his fever had
risen until It was seen that there
was no chance for saving him and the
end came as outlined above.
Clarence, the man .who shot him,
when told of his death seemed much
affected and appears to greatly re
gret the results of his rash and hasty
act. While he adheres steadily to the
fact that he acted throughout the
trouble ia self-defense, he realizes
that he will have to face a Jury and
vindicate his act in shooting Thacker.
An inquest on the body of the dead
man will be held tonight at his home,

Byron Clark representing Clarence,

ternoon in a carriage for that place
at 3:30. Owing to the heavy and
muddy condition of the roads they
cannot arrive at the house until
probably six or seven o'clock where
Coroner Clements will Join them and
the Inquest will be held. ,
County Attorney Ramsey this after
noon when interviewed as to his
probable course of action In the case
now that Mr. Thacker had passed
away, stated that he would undoubt
edly file a complaint agalnbt Clarence
for murder but he had not determined
Just what degree would be charged
whether the first or Becond degree.
He expected the coroner's Inquest
this evening to throw some light on
the degree of premeditation and de
liberation whoch preceded the shoot
ing and whatever this develops will
largely influence the nature of the
complaint. In any event Mr. Ramsey
states, he intends to proceed along
lines upon which he feels confident of
vlndlcatiog the law if it appears to
have been violated. It can be said to
his credit that he Is keeping very
close tab on the developments of the
case and that everything his office
can do to maintain the majesty and
dignity of the law is being done.
Attorney Clark for the defense,
was so busy today in court in the
Miller vs. Worth case, that no state
ment could be obtained from him but
presumably he is lh the same position
as County Attorney Ramsey and is
waiting for the developments of the

organizing the work of his office has
had in mind the most economical use
of funds at his command and at the
same time the greatest possible effi

tion and examining boards with the
office force in such a way that the
chairmen of these boards is an out
side educator. Superintendent E. J.
Bodwell of Beatrice has been ap
pointed chairman of these boards.
Yesterday he further combined the
work by arranging for. a large share
of the inspection of normal training
in high schools to be done by his
deputy and others employed in his
office, placing all this work under
a general director of normal train
Prof. E. A. Rouse, head of profes

this directorship under the state sup

be taken from his present position.
His traveling expenses will be paid
when he is on duty for the state de
partment. Prof Rouse's appoint
ment gives complete satisfaction. He
has been a state authority on ques
tions of normal training for some
time. His advice will have weight
with the high schools offering normal
training and his direction will be
based on sound pedagogical principles.
