' Arrested for Making Gun-Play,
Saturday afternoon the sheriff
was summoned lo the country to
arrest a colored man calling him
sen joiin waiKer, and who was
nourishing a gun and throating to
shoot any who might interfere
with him. He was at the home of
John Urish, west of the city, and
his threatening altitude and with
deadly weapon frightened the
children badly. A phone message
was sent the sheriff of the actions
of the strange negro, so im
medialely and in the afternoon
the sheriff with his trusty shotgun
and belt full of shells, motored
out to the Urish place and arrest
ed the colored outlaw.
The negro gave his name as
John Walker, and slated that ho
was on his way from Omaha to
Lincoln. He had no shells in his
gun at I bo time of his arrest hut
had shells in his pockets. The
colored man was brought to town
and lodged in jail. He is a large
man, and his acts indicate an un
balanced mind. It is probable that
the commissioners of insanity will
investigate his case very soon.
Dishop Williams Heard Yesterday
Hishop Arthur L. Williams, of
Omaha, spoke to a large and ap
preciative audience yesterday
morning at St Luke's church. The
theme was one calculated to en
courage the iailiiiul workers in
the church, the Bishop's discourse
being based on the scripture
"Let all the earth keep silent be
fore him." The sermon was a
strong presentation of the ef
fective work of the great Episcop
al church, and three distinct
points were emphasized. First,
Silence is necessary to a receptive
attention of the faculties of the
mind. Second. Silence is a neces
sary accompaniment of wisdom
and, Third. Silence is always
necessary for true worship. Only
those who heard the bishop can
realize the strength and beauty of
his sermon and the effect of
yesterday's discourse will be far
reaching and will greatly benefit
the local church.
