This sale will coutinue uniil we find a buyer for our stock and will give you an opportu nity to get goods at less prices than they zvere ever offered in Plattsmouth before.

We wish to state that outside of heating and plumbing material we are not holding back anything, but will discount every article, as we are positively going out of the hardware end of our business. With the new line that we have taken it will take all the time we have to give it proper attention, and if there anything you need in the hardware line you would do well to look over our stock.

Much excitement was created in some circles yesterday after-j noon when a telephone message reached the city that Sam Mover, brother-in-law of J. 15. Moore, who, with his entire family, was murdered at Vallisca, Iowa, Sun day night, had been arrested at Nehawka by Sheriir Jackson of Montgomery county, Iowa, and a Pinkerton detective, and were coming to Plattsmouth by auto mobile. On further investigation it de veloped that the arrest had been made about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the home of Mover's son, Charles Hates, the adopted son of Walter Hales, but. whose real name is Charles Mover. Sam Moyer strenuously insisted to the ollicers who made the arrest (hat he was innocent and that be could prove by substantial business men of Nehawka thai he was there too early on Monday morning for him to have been at Vallisca at the time the murder was committed, and further avered that he, Mover, came direct from South Dakota to Nehawka. It developed at the coroner's inquest a I. amsca, inai, .uoore, the murdered man, looked upon his brother-in-law, Sam Mover, as the only enemy lie had in the world. About twenly-flve years nam Mover married a sister of Mrs. Moore, and after children were born to I hem some dillieully arose between them and the hus band and wife separated. One of the sons was adopted by Walker Hates, a prosperous farmer of near Nehawka. This son took the sirname ol ins adopting parents and is now married and residing on a farm 'north of Nehawka. IT was at the ho'nie of this son that Sam Moyer was stopping when the detective and sheriff located him. The statements of Mover's whereabouts are somewhat con flicting. Tuesday morning Moyer was seen to board the north bound Missouri Pacific at Union. The sehnli or tins county was nolilled at once, and he in turn notilied the sheriff of Douglas county, hut it appears thai the Douglas county sheriff did not get him located. Moyer was again seen Tuesday evening at the Union depot, in Omaha about 7 o'clock by II. Peters, a prominent citizen of (Irelna, who talked with Mover about the terrible crime. Moyer waited for the late train south and went lo the home of his son, where he was arrested and afterward released. Apparently the Montgomery comity oiiiciais are no nearer tin; solution of the mystery sur rounding the altrocious murders of Sunday night than I hey were the day following.
