WILL BECKER SURREN
DEBED BY BONDSMAN
Judge Travis iheld a session of the
district court this morning, and in
.the case of the State of Nebraska
against William Becker entered the
notation on his docket to the effect
that the defendant's surety had sur-1
rendered him Into open court and
the prisoner was remanded to jail.
Mr. Becker Is the farmer against
whom the county attorney filed a
complaint charging lilm with the
crime of receiving stolen property,
namely, 100 bushels of wheat stolen
by one Jack Crawford from the bin
of R. L. Propst during the month of
December, 1910. Crawford confessed
to the crime and implicated Becker
in whose bin half of the wheat was
found. Crawford is now serving a
five-year sentence for the crime,
while Becker denied his guilt, and at
the preliminary hearing was placed
under a $500 bond for his appear
ance at the April term of the district
court. A few days ago Mr. Becker
advertised hi3 personal property for
sale, and this la probably the reason
for his Burety desiring to get off the
bond. Becker was taken to Jail this
morning, where he will be restrained
until his trial at the next term, of
