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.
We are going to advertise our stock for sale in the leading papers and very likely will have a buyer for
the entire stock in a very short time, so if there is anything you need it would be well to get it at once.

Nehawka and the Surrounding Country Greatly Excited at the
Arrest But Mover Proves an Alibi and is Released by the
Officers Who Return to Villisca, Iowa.
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
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
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.

house,, which he said were a dis
grace to Ihe town and would not
be perrnilled to remain in the
village of Wabash any length of
lime. And yd the council squirms
about and hesitates to do its duly
in Ihe removal of the same. Some,
people wonder why?
