NOW UP AGAINST
THE REAL THING
Elmort Preston Taken Back to Buf

Charge of Adultry.
Deputy Sheriff S. G. Parr, of Kear

vesterday morning with a warrant
ith a warrant for the arrest of El
for the arrest of Elmort Preston, says
the Daily News of that city.
Preston was convicted last week in
district court at Nebraska City on a
charge of child desertion, and ,upon
being sentenced by Judge Begley to
a year in the state penitentiary, suc
ceeded in perfecting an appeal bond.
and was just about to step out into
a state of freedom once more, when
word came from the Buffalo county
authorities to hold him.
The warrant issued for his arrest
there charges him with living with
a Miss Hayes, of Pleasanton, Nebr
ar.d being the father of a child that
was born to her last month.
This charge is a more serious one
than that of child desertion and he
stands to draw a long penitentiary
sentence if found guilty. The officer
who came after him. said people out
there had ben waiting some time to
make the complaint until his case in
Nebraska City could be disposed of.
the utoe county officers offered no
objection to turning him over to the
Buffalo county deputy sheriff to face
the more serious charge.
The News says it is probable the
hard fight he put up there to go free
on the child desertion charge may be
accountable to his realization of the
developments that would follow if
he did not get back out to Buffalo
county and make some attempt to
smooth matters over there.
