I Played an Excellent Game
I The Union ball team went to Jui
ian last Sunday, where they had one
of the best games of the season with
the team of that place. The game
was one of the best contested games
that has been played in these parts
for a long time. For the first five
, innings on either side there was no
.run made and in the sixth inning the
Julian team succeeded in making
three runs, but that was the last for
them during the game. The seventh
and eighth inning showed no change
and with the conclusion of the ninth
inning the Union team made a run
and this placed the final result &s
Julian 3 and Union 1. While the
boys from here were defeated, no one
can help but say that they made a
good showing, when the other team
was shut out for six Inning3.
The line up for Union was: R

to defeat the ends of justice by run
ning off a witness in a criminal case
in that court. Judge T. C. Munger
of Lincoln, acting as a judge of the
court of appeals, wrote the reversal.
Under it Harrington is practiecllv
acquitted, and all defendants get
new trial ordered.
The case was a sensational one,
largely because of the prominence
of Harrington." The charge was that
Harrington, his son Gerald, Arthur
W. Scattergood, Mrs. Frances Murphy
and Leonard Camp assisted in trying
to break down a white slave charge
against Charles T. Anderson, a sli
cnt of Scattergood. Gerald Harring
ton was acquitted, but the others
were convicted. It was charged that
they had secured written statements
from the girl in the case, Mary Pitt
man, which would be contradictory
of testimony given by her before the
grand jury, and then planned to have
her sent to Canada or concealed so
that she could not be subpoenaed as
a witness.
Scattergood is also a Nebraska at-!

either with each other or with Scat
tergood or Camp, and a verdict of ac-
rjuittal should have been directed in
their favor on that count.
The court says there was testi
mony to show that Scattergood called
on Mrs. Pittman at Creston, Iowa,
and endeavored to get from her a
statement in contradiction of her tes
timony before the grand jury, but
that Scattergood was privileged to
Washington. Aug. 16. Less than
1 per cent of more than 24,000.000
men registered under the draft dur
ing the war have been found charge
able with wilful insertion, the war
department announced today. The
total against whom desertion charges
have been recorded is 1.S11, rep
resenting, the statement says, "a tre
mendous improvement over the Iraft
record of the civil war." The de
partment will soon announce
branded as .deserters and the state-:
ment adds that the government "de- j
sires to obtain co-operation of state
and local officials, patriotic societies I
and other agencies including the de-
their apprehension."
Pending the publication, the state
ment continues, any man charged
with desertion may avoid arrest by
surrendering at an army post. If i
his record is cleared his name will be !
omitted from the deserter list. Those
in doubt as to their status are urged '
to inquire of the adjutant general. I
The list was compiled after local '
boards had been instructed to send
in records of all men classed as draft
draft deserters during the war. A
total of 4S9.033 records were for
warded, but on examination it was
shown 16,000 dealt with cases dis
pose dof. They included registrants
who enlisted voluntarily and failed to
notify their draft board; men who
failed to report when drafted and
who reported at the camps; few men
discharged as physically unfit and
some convicted of desertion during
the war and regisirants who died.
The records in 151,000 other cases
also showed wilful desertion co;ld
not be charged and they were eliminated.
The statement says that because
of th eexpense which would be in
curred, payment of the $50 reward
for apprehension of draft deserters
has been temporarily suspended.
