Officer Frank Neumann and
Charles Kopisckie Have Lively
Mixup at Soennichsen's.
From Wednesday' Pally.
There was quiti a lively lime
for a few minutes last evening in
the store of IT. M. Soennichsen,
when Charles Kopisckie mixed
with Ollicer Frank Neumann, and
a a result of the encounter both
of tin parties presented a very
battered appearance. The trouble
a far as can be learned, arose
oer the killing of the dog that
bit the little Pries girl a few
days ago, as the two men were
discussing this, and the officer
told Kopisckie that his dog was
dangerous to the safety of the
public and .should be killed.
This statement seemed to
aimer the owner of the dog, as
be swore at the officer, and after
a few remarks Neumann started
out of the door, with Kopisckie
following, and he struck the
officer, knocking him out onto
the walk. Neumann went back
into the store to place the man
under arrest and they mixed
airain, in which the policeman
suffered the vvor.-t of the melee,
being pushed over a box thai
was standing near and suffering
a severe injury to his forehead,
and lie was used rather rough by
Kopisckie while in this position.
When the officer recovered his
feet be called "on several parties
to assist him, but they declined
and thereby made themselves
liable to a line for failure to as
sist an officer in the discharge of
Mr. Neumann summoned Mer
chant Police Fitzpatrick, who
was oil the street at the time and
he hastened over to the store,
where they got Kopisckie down
on the lloor, but he still con
tinued his resistance. Finally,
after the man was subdued, his
;lpeaiance was secured by II. M.
Soennichsen, the owner of the
store going hi bond.
iHiring the fracas Officer Neu
mann drew his revolver, being
compelled to ue the butt end of
it on the man he was seeking to
place under arrest, and the ap
pearance of the artillery had a
very terrifying effect cn the by
standers who bad gathered
around, and one of the young
men did rot stop running until
be reached the Gei.e corner,
where he surveyed the battle
from afar, while one of the boys
in the store sought safety by
holding up a bolt of linen goods
to ward ufT the bullets in case
the officer tired.
This afternoon at 2 o'clock the
case was brought to trial before
Judge Archer and there were
quite a large number in attend
ance. Officer Neumann gave his
side of the story, as well as
Kopisckie,' who alleged that Neu
mann struck him lirst, and that
he acted in self defense. The
court, after hearing the testi
mony of the two principals, as
well as Nelson ltenner, who saw
Kopisckie knock Neumann down
on the sidewalk, decided that
Kopisckie was guilty as charged
an assessed him a line of $25 and
costs. Kopisckie will try and
secure a bond of $100 to have the
matter appealed to a higher
court, he states.

IRE HIGH PRICED
CUSS COUNTY LAND SOLD
From Wednesday's Daily.
Some more of the valuable
farming land of Cass county has
changed hands in the past few
days, Oeorge Horn having dis
posed of his forty acres of fine
fanning land that adjoins the
county farm west of this city, to
Jacob P. Falter, for which Mr.
Falter paid the price of .?G.G00. or
?lf5 per acre. This land is
without any improvements upon
it, but is one of the most valuable
pieces of farming land in this lo
cality. This would have made a
splendid addition to the county
farm, and several years ago could
have been purchased for ST5 an
acre, but the person who pur
chases it in the future will have
to pay S200 an acre for it, as the
value of the land is constantly
advancing, in keeping with the
other high-priced productive
farms of the county.
