MIHHIB CAP TURE Mil JONES Poisall the Only One of the Men Still at Large Sheriff Qulnton last evening add ed another one to those who have been wanted for the trouble in an uptown saloon last Saturday night when he tooK John Jones Into cus tody, Jones being taken at the grad ing ramp of George Poisall near Ce dar Creek. He made no resistance but came back to the city peaceably aud was installed in a call at the county Jail for safe keeping; He Is suffering from a bullet wound In the leg which he received at the time of the fracas. When asked by Deputy Manspeak"i why he was limping about, Join replied that a horse had kicked him. That was last night but this morning he was anxious to have the deputy summon a surgeon to- look after his Injury. Mnns;:eaker told him he had never had to hae a surgeon for a horses's kick but his humor did not appeal to Jones for a minute. It Is learned that Jones had the bullet removed from his leg by a surgeon In Omaha shortly after leaving here on Saturday. Jones, Ilerold and Egan were all arraigned this morning In county court before Judge Beeson, C. II. Taylor appearing for the state In the absence of County Attorney Ramsey, and the complaint read to them. There are three counts in the com plaint including one charging drunk enness, one assault and another re sisting and abusing an officer. The boys all entered a plea of guilty to the first count that of drunkenness and plead not guilty to the other two charges. Jones seemed in doubt as to whether to plead guilty or not but he finally made up his mind to plead not guilty. He stated that be didn't know whether he was guilty or not as about all he remembered was being knocked Into a corner and getting the bullet wound In the leg. Judge Beeson made the usual In quiries as to whether the boys were ready for trial and found they had no attorney and that the cbbg could not be taken up until at least to morrow. He therefore remanded them to Jail until tomorrow (Thurs day) morning at 10 o'clock and fixed the bond for the appearance of the hoys at $300 cadi. They returned to Jail in company with Deputy Man speaker. The only one of the quartette not now In the hands of the officers Is Harry Poisall and the officers are confident that he will be taken be fore a very great while. A close lookout is being kept for him and his appearance will be the signal for his being put under arrest. It is apparent that the boys are now commencing to realize the se rious situation Into which they have gotten themselves and that they stand an excellent chance of being severely punished for their foolishness. The determination of tho officers to up hold the law means that there will be no let up In the prosecution and (hat a severe penalty will be asked for. Hearing Divorce Case. In district court today Judge Travis is hearing the divorce case of Nellie Brittaln against Walter Brlttaln and the case is being a hard fought one. There is quite a bit of acrimony dis played between the parties and the case Is. warmly contested. The case was brought by Mrs. Brittaln who asked the custody of the two children of the union, Oda Doris, aged 3 years and Alta Pearl, aged 1 year. The ground on which the divorce was sought was non-suport, the petition setting forth that the defendant was an employe of the Burlington road and earned sufficient money to take care of the plaintiff and the children but that he refused to to so. The defendant through his counsel, Judge Archer filed an answer in which he made counter- allegations denying that the plaintiff was a woman of 'taste habits but asserting that she a tociated with bad company and per .v.s of Ill-repute. The defendant also alleged that the plaintiff had been guilty of extreme cruelty to the defendant In that she had struck him at times and abused him and that she was a person of vicious tem per and vulgar habits. The defend ant also asked the custody of the minor children of the pair and al leged the mother was not a fit per son to have their care and custody. The hearing of the case took up the morning and a good part of tho af ternoon, there being a great many witnesses present for both sides. This was the only matter which Judge Travis passed upon today. IF ommissioners Transact Routine Business Plattsmouth, Neb., July 19, 1910.
