PREPARING TO HOLD
UP PARTIES NEAR THE
LOCUST STREET VIADUCT
The residents of the west part
of the city were greatly disturbed
Saturday night about midnight
by the disturbance created in the
vicinity of the Locust street
viaduct of the Missouri Pacific by
some parties who appeared to be
fighting or westling near the
viaduct and using quite loud and
boisterous language, but owing
to the darkness it was impossible
to identify them. Later several
parties who were returning from
town were accosted by two men
and in one instance they threat
ened violence to a gentleman if
he did not shell forth his coin to
them, but before they could carry
out their threat they were fright
ened away by some parties who
were returning home from a
dance, and they made their getaway.

Complaint was iiled in the
county court Saturday against

who was married here last Wed
nesday evening to Miss Adeline
Darrough, charging him with
perjury, in making false state
ments in order to obtain the li
cence to marry the girl whose
name he gave as Adeline Dar
rough. The prisoner asked that
he be granted a continuance for
30 days in which to prepare his
defense, which was granted and
he will be allowed this time to
get ready his side of the case.

ATTEND THEIR FATHER'S
FUNERAL AT SIONEY, IOWA
Saturday evening Mesdames
William and J. E. Tuey departed
for Sidney, Iowa, where they were
called by the death of their
father, D. J. McDaniel, who
passed away in that city on Sat
urday morning at an advanced
age. Mr. McDaniel has been
suffering for the past seven
years from the effects of a stroke
of paralysis and his death was
expected for the last few months,
as he has suffered greatly from
his affliction. The daughters
will have the sympathy of a large
circle of friends in their loss of
a well beloved father. In addi
tion to several children the de
ceased also leaves a widow to
mourn his death.
Has Large Attendance.
Yesterday saw one of the
largest attendances in the year
at the Methodist Sunday school
in this city, there being some 278
persons present to take part in
the services of the day, and every
available chair was used to ac
commodate the gathering of
young and old.
A very daring attempt at a jail
delivery was nipped in the bud at
an early hour this morning by
Deputy Sheriff Manspeaker, who
discovered a tunnel that the
prisoners were working on to
gain their liberty. Three of tin;
county prisoners, Ray Dawson,
Ernest Saan and Ceorge Clifton,
had succeeded in pring up a
section of the steel lloor in the
cell which they were occupying
i'lul they had removed almost a
wagonload of rock and dirt from
beneath the cell, making a tun
nel to the outer wall, where Ihey
hoped to dig through to liberty.
and within a few hours more
would have succeeded in their
The prisoners made some
noise at I heir work, and about 2
'clock this morning Mrs. Man-
speaker was aroused by the noise
mi called her husband, who
Jressed and hastened down to the
jail to investigate. As he enter-
d the jail the prisoners were all
found in their bunks, apparently
wrapped in slumber, but he
noticed several strange .looking
piles covered with papers and
ilankets, and the rock and dirt
taken from Ihe hole under the
floor was exposed, and then he
oeated the place in the floor
where the sheet of steel had been
oosened up and at once locked
Ihe prisoners in their cell where
they were sleeping, which is just
off the corridor in the steel cell
where the hole was made.
The prisoners in the city sec
ion of the jail were evidently in
the conspiracy, as Ihey had
started a hole in the northwest
corner of the jail and had lorn
up a part of the wooden floor
and removed a section of the
concrete, which was placed be
neath the wood floor a few years
ago, but the dampness in the
jail has had a tendency to loosen
the concrete and quite a lot of it
was removed bv me time me
deputy sheriff arrived.
Sheriff Quinton and Mr. Man
speaker guarded the jail today
while the work of repairing the
damage is being done, and the
prisoners will have a hard time
in the future to get out or even
try it, as the place which they
dug out will be filled with rock
and concrete. The hole was quite
large enough to permit the
prisoners, who are of small size,
to get in to work, and they had
evidently worked hard on the job.
as when Ihey received I heir sup
per there was no sign of the
rocks or dirt apparent in the cell,
and it is thought Ihey started as
soon as the deputy sheriff left,
to dig their way out.
All three of the men are under
sentence to the penitentiary, and
Ihe sheriff had intended to take
Saan and Dawson to Lincoln this
morning to start in to serve their
sentences, but it will be post
poned until the jail is fixed up.
Cliflon will also be taken to the
penitentiary as soon as the
order for his removal is issued.
