WEDDING OF REIMAN DUNLAP
AND MISS ETHEL TIERNEY IN
THIS CITY BSIKCS TRAGEDY
The elopement and wedding of Kay
Dunlap and Kthel Tierney of South
Omaha on Tuesday of this week was
followed by the tralic shouting Of
the groom yesterday noon In that
city tiy the mother of the bride.
Mrs. Mike Tierney. at the home of
Mrs. Tiernev, i2nd and Y streets.
The two young people came to
I'lj'tcmouth Tue-rtny r.f trrr.nr.r. and
visited the court house where they
made application for a marriage li
cense, stating that their residence
was at Union, in the southern por
tion of Cass county. The croom
also grave the ape of the bride as
eighteen years while the mother of
the young woman stated in Omaha
yesterday that she was but sixteen
years of age. The wedding here was
performed by Judge Allen J. Reeson
and was witnessed by Mr. and Mr.
M. M. Hill, who had accompanied
the bridal couple here. The shoot
ing seems to be the outcome of a
fued of several years between the
two families as statements made to
the Omaha police by members of the
families and acquaintances of the
two parties, indicated that the two
families, aside from the young man
and woman who have become the
chief factors of the shooting, have
not been on friendly terms and have
not Fpoken for years.
Mr. Imnlap In company with a
friend, Harry Downing, called at the
Tierney home yesterday noon and af
ter a short argument with Mrs.
Tierney the climax was brought
about when the mother procuring a
revolver shot Dunlap, who was hur
ried to the South Side hospital where
he died two hours later.
From statements made by the po
lice it seems that Dunlap was under
bonds for a box car robbery recently
and had not been out of jail long.
The family of Mrs. Dunlap claim
that they were unaware of her pres
ent whereabouts and this fact was
cne of the things contributing to the
shooting. The aged mother who did
the shooting was taken into custody
ft her home and later removed to the
Douglas county jail to await the fil
ing of charges.
When sheriff deputies ' arrived,
Mrs. Tierney coolly turned over the
22 caliber revolver with which she
had done the shooting, but refused
to make any statement.
"I did all I could first." was the
only comment she would make.
Her daughter, Margaret. 22 years
old. told the police the reason for
her mother's act.
"He took Ethel away from us Sun
day and we haven't seen either of
them until this noon when Iiunlai
came here with Harry Downing, who
lives at Fifty-first and & streets." she
aid. "We don't know where Ethel
Neighbors told of hearing a dis
pute followed quickly by revolver
A pathetic scene was enacted In
the Tierney home when officers at
tempted to take Mrs. Tierney to the
station. Her two youngest children,
Clara, 11. and George 9, clung to
their mother, threw their arms
around her neck, sobbing and kissing
"Oh, mamma, you've got to come
back! Ethel is gone and now
they're going to take you away,
mamma," they cried.
"Mother will be all right. She'll
come back," Mrs. Tierney reassured
he children but it was necessary for
the eldest sister. Margaret, to come
to her toother's ass-is'ance in releas
ing her frjin til'. children's hold.
Deputy Sheriffs N'uk Halter anil
Mc(!wy:i!U' were visibly affected am!

of t!iir f-Jlice in n moving the
woman t the station.

Last Sunday Esther Tierney is
.-aid to have been out in a car with
si. me man and met Dunlap.
Me got into the car with them and
had not been seen since until Friday.
"I am the sole guardian of my lit
tl ones. I have to protect them. I
did that today!"'
Thus Mrs. Tierney explained why
she shot Dunlap. as she sat in the
sheriff's ollice awaiting to be taken
"up stairs" to the county jail.
"I ask"d him where he had taken
Esther: he refused to tell me. 1
know that lie knew where she was.
Friends told me they saw her with
him." she explained.
"Did you believe he mistreated
votf daughter?" s-he was asked.
"Of cctM"-e he did. I lnd evidence
and knowledge that he did." she said.
?.lrs. Tierney is a slight little wom
an, her hair dark and untinged with
gray. She seemed ccol and collected.
When told that Dunlap was about
to die. Mrs. Tierney threw up her
hands with a pathetic gesture.
"I'll take what is coming to me,"

city, purchase 668 acres of the Cass
county farm of Mark White, near
oid Kock Bluffs, for the sum aggre
The land purchased by the two
new owners includes the old White

known farms in that portion of Cas3
countv. Mr. White retains 1C0 acres
of his farming land, which at present !
is being fanned by Wesley Hill, but
all the other land is taken over to

Messrs. Cromwell and VaT :rv.
The deal gives the new owners one)
of the most attractive farms in the

shows the rustling spirit of these two

The farm has been well developed
by Mr. White and will lie found a '
good investment for the new owners,
who take possession in a short time.
"I believe In the principles of the
league of nations and am extremely
sorry that both of the political par
ties do not come out flatly for them."
said Bishop K. V. Shayler of the
Kpiscopal church in an interview
with a World-Herald reporter.
"Personally. I feel the republicans
by their failure to make an affirma

great importance to the world, have
shown a feeling of selfishness. I
shall not vote for a candidate who

Bishop Shayler formerly was af
filiated with the republican party
and has supported its policies.
Bishop Shayler. who as head of the
Protestant KpLscopal church in this
territory, occupies a commanding
position in the religious world, said
he was speaking for himself alone,
but he has uttered similar sentiments
in his ferraons in the recent past and
has told congregations of the church
that principles of the league should
be indorsed by the American nation
and that any other attitude by this
country would place it in a false light
before the world at large.
The bishop recently returned from
attending the Lambeth conference of !
churchmen in England where he had
an especially favorable opportunity
t sound sentiment as it was expressed
in that country.
"I beard Lloyd George in an ad
dress declare the nations of the
world, already in the league, would
be disposed to let .nierica practical
ly have her own way in entering
this world organization. He said
the smaller nations especially had
been looking across the water for
the moral support of their allies in
the United States and that the wel
come for this nation in the league of
nations would not be hedged about
by any conditions such as some on
this side of the water seem to fear.
"It seems to me the principles of
the league would go very far just
now toward clarifying the world sit

get many viewpoints on present dav

on charges that the series was "fixed"
for Cincinnati to win. Published
reports place Cohan's losses at
$30,000 and Tennes at $80,000.
The inquiry into the "fixing"
charges will be pushed to the limit,
according to a statement made by
