Several Important Jury Cases on the Docket, the Principal One of
Which Is That of McCann, Doud and Lytic, Charged With
Robbing the Jewelry Store at Louisville and Attempted
Robbery of the Wabash Bank.
Dial rid court enlivened this
morning fnr Hie jury work nf Hie
term. Some cry important
litigation will conic up at the
presscnt session of the court. On
next Thursday morning the case
of the State against McCann,
Doud and Lytic will he, called for
trial. The defendants arc charged
with attempted robbery of Hie
Hank of Wabash on inc. night of
September 28, uud the blowing
open with uilro-glycerine, on the
night oT September 2'J, last, the
iron safe of Mike Trilsch, a jewel
er nl Louisville.
The evidence against I he de
fendants is wholly circumstantial,
and one of the strong points of
the stale's case against them is
that Ihey were seen in I lie vicinity
of Louisville on the evening of the
!!llh of September and in South
Mend, eight miles from the scene
of the Wabash crime, the night
before I he attempted rohherv of
the, bank.
Tin1 bank robbers effected an
''iilraiue iuln the bank building
and charged the vault door, in
which the .safe containing the
funds of Ihe bank is kept, with
three separate loads of nitro
glycerine, but failed to blow the
dnor oil'. II is said that safe
blowers skilled ill the nrl usually
fail on a safe door which does not
yield to Ihe lirsl shot. This was
the nte at Wabash, and all hough
throe, attempts were made, yet no
one was suHleienlly awakened by
the reports In get nut after Ihe
In looking about for evidence of
the men who had made Ihe at
lempl it was discovered that
buggv tracks led In South Head.
Here it was soon ascertained thai
a span of horses belonging In Cms
Thimgau and carriage belonging
to Charles Hill, had been used
duritrr the night and returned rv
the owners without their knowl
edge. The horses were wet with
sweat at ti o'clock in Ihe morn
ing, when Ihe owner .went In the
barn In feed I hem. The harness
were noticed to be disarranged,
and Ihe men had taken one har
ness from two different sets and
happened In gd botli fnr Ihe oil
Id 111
' were
or near horse, which wni
dicale that the "yeggmen
no farmers.
II appears the, defendants left
for Louisville as soon as the team
was restored In the owner's barn,
for Ihe three strangers were seen
in dilTeernt stores in the village
during Ihe afternoon previous to
Ihe robbery of Ihe jewelry store.
They were not to be foiled on this
occasion, ami put in suflicient
glycerine to blow the door from
ils hinges and hurl it some feet.
Over 1,000 worth of jewelry was
taken from the trays in Ihe safe,
one tray being taken with the con
tents. The robbers were tracked
Inward Omaha by a small amount
of Mr. Trilseh's slock being
found on the north side of Ihe
river, near Ihe railroad track.
Also a band-car was found miss
ing Irom the M. p. station,' which
was afterward found near one of
Ihe suburbs of Omaha.
vvillnn a week after the crimes
were commit led, two of the men
seen at Smith Mend and at Louis
ville McCann nml Doud were
aires t I'll in Omaha, but Ihe third
was more cautious and was not
ipprehemled until a few days ago.
Two of Ihe men have been resi
dents of Omaha for some years,
while the third is a new man in
criminal circles in Nebraska. They
will be defended by Attorney fi. W.
Drill of Omaha, while County At
torney (',. II. Taylor will prosecute.
While the county attorney does
not make any claims, yet it is
generally believed that a strong
case will be made out against the
Grant Wetenkamp Enjoys One of
the Happiest Events of His Life,
With Assistance of Neighbors
(irant Wetenkamp, who, from
his crippled condition, is unable
to get about among bis neighbors,
was most agreeably surprised last
I'riday night by about seventy-five
or eighty of his most, congenial
neighbors ami friends coming in
at his home for an evening's
chat. The callers brought well
filled baskets of lunch and before
the evening was far gone a man
rpiet was spread for seventy-seven
guests. It was a grand evening,
the weather was ideal and the
social spirit prevailed. The oc
casion was the 42nd birthday of
Mr. Wetenkamp, and the good
natured company almost num
bered two for every year of their
host's age. To say that it was an
enjoyable aiTair is putting it too
mildly, for everybody had a tine
I ime.
To show the appreciation of Ihe
guests for their friend and neigh
bor a neat sum of money was do
nated to purchase him a suitable
birthday present. After a very
late hour the happy company
dispersed, wishing Mr. Weten
kamp many returns of the day.
