Suspicions in That Direction Are
Quite Clear, Considering the
Surounding Circumstances.
From Tuesday's Pan.
What may develop into a case
of horse stealing was brought to
light yesterday afternoon, when
Miss Anna Kopia, who is teaching
at the school house near the
cemetery, telephoned in to the
sheriff's ollice that a carriage had
been left at the school house
some time Sunday or Saturday
night, and Deputy Sheriff Man
speaker at once hastened to the
scene of action and found the
buggy to be in excellent shape and
had evidently been used for ex
tensive traveling, as there were a
number of towels and cooking
utensils in it, as well as some
vegetables. 4
There was no trace of the
horses to bo found in the locality
where the vehicle was discovered
and the buggy was brought on to
this city, where a few hours later
word was brought by Lester Bur
rows that he had discovered
strange team near the home of
Henry Born, a few miles west of
this city on the Louisville road,
which had evidently come some
distanceand which had all the
signs of having broken loose
from where they had been tied, as
the reins were torn quite badly.
,The team was also brought in
to the city by Sheriff Quinton and
the different sections throughout
this part of the state will be
notified to try and locate the
place from which the team was
taken or strayed. The team i9 a
good one and consists of a black
horse and a" mare and are worth
quite a sum of money if the party
taking them had been able to dis
pose of them. The authorities
made a thorough search of the
country where the team and
buggy were found, but failed to
secure any clow as to where the
parties bringing I hem here had
disappeared to. All those who
were here yesterday were rounded
up by the officers, but they failed
to find any stranger who looked
like lie was involved in the affair.

The team was identified this
morning as being the properly of
Bart Roberts, living five miles
east of Lincoln, and they were
stolen from the corner of Thir
teenth and N streets in that city
Saturday night about 9 o'clock, so
tho parties taking them did not
get a great ways with the team.
Deputy Sheriff Antells of Lan
caster county, accompanied by L.
L. Roberts, a brother of the man
losing the horses, came down this
morning and at once identified the
animals. The sheriff in his trip
over Ihe locality where the horses
were found learned of the pres
ence in that locality Sunday night,
of two strangers, who stopped

nothing on him and he was al

later seen by John Weherbein
near his home, but there being
nothing suspicious about the fel
lows he did not report tho mat
tor. It is quite unlikely that they
an be found now, as they have
probably made their getaway on

A very smooth case of forgery
has been brought to light in the
city and the perpetrator, John
Burns, a painter, who has been
employed here for the past two
week8 by Frank Gobennan, has
apparently made n successful get
away. Saturday afternoon Mr. Gobel
man paid the man off, giving him
a check for $19.65, payable at the
Plattsmouth State bank, and the
man at onco proceeded to inako
two forged checks from this and
successfully passed them. Ho
cashed the original good check
at the Pekins House, where he
was boarding, and after supper
went to the saloon of Edward
Donal, iu company with his part
ner, another painter, and calling
for drinks tendered the forged
check, which was cashed by Mr.
Donat, and Ihe change turned
over to the man, who shortly af
terwards called at the saloon
managed by William Binrichsen,
where the same dodge was suc
cessfully worked and the second
forged chock accepted and the
difference in money paid over to
Burns. The forgery was not dis
covered until the checks were pre
sented for payment, when the fact
that they were rank forgeries was
brought out and Ihe matter taken
up with the county attorney and
a warrant issued for tho man.
Tho work of Burns was very
smooth, as had any question come
up as lo whether the chock was
all right ho could have had them
call up Mr. Gobelman, who had
given him a chock for this
amount on that evening, and no
one would have known until it
was presented at tho bank Ihat it
was not, genuine. Burns and his
'partner, who had been here with
him, had all day Sunday and Mon
days to make their getaway ami
are by this time probably a long
ways from Plattsmouth, as they
realized quite a Utile sum from
the forged checks, which would
lake them several hundred miles
from here, w here I hoy will prob
ably try the same scheme again,
if not. apprehended by tho author
ities before they have a chance lo
get busy. There may be other
parties here who were worked on
the same scheme, but they have
not been brought to light as yet.

Last evening at t o'clock, in
Omaha, occurred tho wedding of
Miss Beatrice Basse, a former
Plattsmouth girl, and Loren G.
Dirdzell of Chicago. Tho news of
Ihe wedding was a complete sur
prise to even the most intimate
friends of the young lady in
Omaha, as no intimation of the
event had been given until a few
hours before Ihe ceremony. Miss
Basse was born and reared in this
city ami attended the schools
here until, with her mother, Mrs.
Lillian K. Basse, she removed to
Lincoln, where they resided until
the death of the mother, a few
years ago, when Miss Basso
entered the Clarkson hospital in
Omaha as a trained nurse. Her
old friends and acquaintances will
extend the newly wedded couple
their most sincere wishes for a
long and happy married life.

Yesterday afternoon William
Kelly, who was employed on
Ihe city work for some lime, was
hauled in by the police force for
being in a stale of intoxication
and was placed in the city prison
until this morning, when he was
brought before his honor, Judge
Archer, who administered the
usual fine of $2 ami costs against
him. This is the second time in
the last few days that this gentle
man has been in the limelight of

their hands full looking after the
numerous floating population
which has for the last few weeks
been here engaged in work at the
rifle range and other jobs around
Ihe city, and several of them have
indulged too freely of the flowing
bowl, with the result that they
have been keeping Ihe police on
the go.
