So No More.
From Saturday's Pally.
Lon Owens, a farmer of near
Iiarlletl, Iowa, anil his ii-ycar-old
mm, Joe, were in town yester
day and the hoy was found in the
Donat saloon in a state of in
toxication. Complaint was made
to the county attorney and a war
rant was soon issued from Judge
Iiecsnn's court on a complaint
filed hy the county attorney,
charging Owens with causing. the
delinquency of his son.
The boy was allowed to go to
his home last evening, hut his
father was detained at the county
jail. This morning he was ar
raigned before Judge Ueeson on
the charge above mentioned, and
pleaded guilty. Owens (old the
court that he purchased the beer
and allowed the boy to dring it;
that the boy undoubtedly had more
than one drink; that he had never
seen the bdy drunk before, and it
was not. his intention to make him
drunk on Ibis occasion. Owens
had allowed the boy to have beer
before when he took it himself.
The penally provided by the law
of Nebraska for giving a minor
liquor and causing the deliqucncy
of intoxication is a line of $500 or
imprisonment in the county jail
for six months.
The accused staled to the court
thai be had no means with which
to pay a line, and that his family
needed his assistance in gaining a
livelil ; thai if the court would
suspend the sentence he would re
port every month and that he
would not drink nor allow the boy
to have liquor any more. The
court tlxed the penally al six
months in jail, but suspended the
sentence during good behavior,
warning and cautioning Owens
thai if at any lime during Ihe six
months either he or the boy were
found intoxicated the penalty
would be enforced.
Mr. Oonat says thai the old
gentleman has been in the habit
of bringing Ihe boy to his palce
wild him, and when he bought, a
glass of beer for himself he
Imughl one for Ihe hoy, lie does
not think the boy had over one
glass, possibly two, and that he

Which Startled Many of Our
Citizens, the Majority of Whom
Had Retired for the Night
From Friday' Dally.
A mysterious explosion occur
red la.t night about 10:30, which
startled many people of Platts
iimutli who chanced to be awake.
The concussion jarred the win
dows in most of the residences in
town and people rushed to their
windows and heads protruded to
investigate the source of the
noise. John Cory was sitting in
his hotel ollice when the jar and
noise was heard, and it appeared
to come from the vicinity of the
Burlington bridge, and the noise
was attributed to the explosion of
an underground gasoline tank.
It was rumored on the street
this morning that an oil tank in
the shops had exploded, but in
vestigation contradicted this
rumor. The explosion was heard
as clearly at l'acitlc Junction as
Will (irebe and Carl Kopishke
were sitting on the later's porch
at the time ami had a good view
of the river. Will noticed the
flash, which appeared to roll up
from the center of the river near
the bridge, and it ascended 200 or
30(1 feet. Will remarked to Mr.
Kopischke that it was lightning,
anyway. But when the report
came it. was the shock of exploded
dynamite, and both Will and his
companion agreed that the noise
was from dynamite. He says that
it might have been located a mile
east of the river, it being dark, so
he could not be certain as to the
Roy Holly and bis companions,
sleeping in their lent by the Bur
lington bridge, were not disturbed
by the reporl, but those who were
awake and heard the windows rat
tle and felt the earth tremble,
would like to solve the mystery
surrounding Ihe explosion.
Lig Brown rtf Kenosha was in
town this morning and says the

Red Men Not Responsible.
From Friday's Dally.
The Red Men held their regular
meeting last night at their lodge
room in this city. Eor fear the
public may not understand, tho
lodge wants it staled in the paper
that the Red Men are in no way
responsible for the carnival that
is being conducted on the streets
every night. The proprietors of it
are paying a license, to the city
and are running entirely on their
own hook. The Red Men did ap
ply fur permission for the Mid
West Carnival company to oc
cupy the streets for a week, com
mencing July 8, but that concern
dissolved partnership and the Red
Men canceled the contract with its
manager. The present company
is under a different management
and has no arrangements what
ever with the Red Men.
