TODAY IS ANNI
VERSARY OF PENI
Tragedy of Ten Years Ago Recalled
Excitement Ran High in Cass
County at That Time.
From Tuesdays Dally.
Ten years ago today, March 14th
at 2:15 p. m., three desperate crim
inals broke through the bars of the
Nebraska penitentiary after killing
Warden James Delahunty, E. G. Heil
man, ush?r, and Deputy Warden
Iltnry Wagner. Three days later the
robbers were overtaken by a posse of
officers of the law on a Sarpy county
road and of the trio but one was re

compelled by the bandits to drive
them toward Omaha in- his farm
wagon, was killed in the battle where
"3horty" Gray lost his life, John
Dowd killed himself and Charles
Morley gave himself up. He was
young, married two months, and a
farmer living near Meadow.
Charles Morley is still a peniten
tiary inmate. He has been an inmate
since the evening of the day when he
engaged officers in battle on the hill
road east of Gretna. He was serving
a penitentiary term of fifteen years
when he broke out of the pen, leav
ing a trail of bloodshed and desola
tion behind him. He, alone of the
trio that went out of the pen into
the snowstorm, into a March blizzard
that blocked the roads with six foot
drifts, came back alive. The outbreak
was the direct cause of six deaths,
three at the pen when the break was
made and three at the end of the
trail they tried to follow.
"Shorty" Gray in some manner got
possession of three guns and. a quan
tity of nitro-glycerine. Where he got
them no one ever found out. The
three men, at a given signal, ap
proached the barred doors, blew off
the locks after covering the turnkey
with their guns and then engaged
the warden, his deputy and usher In
battle. The officials of the prison
were shot down and the prisoners
escaped through the front door. Their
trail was lost. It afterwards . de
veloped that they ran east up the
little branch that flows past the pen.

Joseph Dickman, not far from the
residence of the Catholic bishop.
. There they stayed until early the
following morning, intimidating the
family, answering the telephone calls
and commanding everyone ' to do
what they wanted done.
The following morning they forced
Lloyd Dickman, a son of the family
to drive them in a milk wapon to
Twentieth and R streets in Lincoln.
On the way the wagon got struck in!
the snowdrifts and the capital city;
chief of police happening along about!
that time, helped young Dickman to
eet his milk wagon out of the drifts,
unconscious of the fact that the three
men his entire force was looking for,
were in that wagon.
From the Rock Island yards, they
made their way along the Rock Is
land to Murdock. where they robbed
a store, got a rifle, fresh ammunition
and some food. They were next j
heard of near South Bend and later'
at Meadow. They were at or near
Meadow when the posse started from
Lincoln, headed by Sheriff Gus Hyers. :
They forced Roy Blunt, a farmer, to!
take them in his farm wagon along
the road leading to Omaha, where
they wanted to get. East of Gretna,
they were overtaken by the posse,
pnd a gun battle followed, Hyers and
Chief of Police Briggs leading the at
tack. At the Blunt home, after the con
victs had learned that Mrs. Blunt
h.id gone to a neighbor's to give the
alarm, the trio left the following
"To the Possee: We have taken
your neighbor for a hostage; if you
do not follow us or report the matter,
he will not be injured."
Blunt was killed and many to this
d.iv believe that he was killed by
The mystery to this day is: Where
did "Shorty" Gray get the guns and
Another unsolved question is, of
course, who killed Gray and Blunt.
Morley on this, the tenth anniver
sary of the outbreak, is still in
prison. His health is breaking and
he has aged greatly.
DEATH OF ELMER MONROE
From Tuesday's uuuv
The death of Elmer E.; Monroe,
former Plattsmouth man, occurred
March 4. 1922. at Hyattville, Wy
oming, where he has been making
his home for the last few years.
The deceased was born September
4, 1866, in Warren county, I-wa, and
came to Plattsmouth, in 1881, and

SOME OLD RELICS
The west display window of the
C. E. Wescott's Sous' store has a
number of very interesting relics on
display there that were donated by
Mrs. A. 1. Asch of near Murray for
that purpose. Among these are two
papers, one printed in 1789, the year
of Washington's first entry into of
fice as president and the other pub
lished in Ulster county. New York,
in 1800. Another of the old curios in
a large rosary worn by one of the
early Catholic missionaries as well
as a number of other small articles
which have a very interesting his

A GREAT DEAL OF
Handling of Criminal Cases in Office
of County Attorney and Sher
iff Cuts Down Expenses.
From Tuesday's Dally.
The manner in which the crimin
al docket of the district court was
handled at this term of court means
the saving of at the very lowest fig
ure, $2,000 to the taxpayers of the
county as had the cases been drawn
out through the long process of jury
trials there would have been a very
heavy expense entailed that would
not in the least better served the
ends of justice than the skillful man
ner in which County Atorney A. G.
Cole handled his end of the state
cases and in which he was ably as
sisted by Sheriff Quinton and Chief
of Police Jones as well as Contable
Detleff. In the case of the young men
charged with burglary which was
the first case handled yesterday in
the district court, the able efforts of
the county attorney and sheriff se
cured a prompt settlement and the
long process of three Jury trials was
avoided and the same in the booze
cases that were brought up and dis
posed of in the county court, saving
the time and expense o fthe trials in
the district court.1 Each day the jury
is in service there is a cost of $100
to the county and with the criminal
cases . that were handled yesterday
this would have run up to at least
the ? 2 ,00-mark if not more. WKile
this, method does not permit the
county authorities making a great
display of their efforts in the courts
it certainly cuts down the expense
of operating the machinery of the

the effects of her operation, was able
to return home last evening and will

YOUNG MEN GET
INTO TROUBLE FOR
James Zaubeck Draws a Penitentiary
Century Others Got Off with
Three Months in Jail.
j From Monday's Datlv
I As an aftermath of the burglariz-
I ing of the home of Elmer Wetenkamp
on the night of February 17th. this
morning three young men, Jains
Zaubeck. Harold Manners and Hrmiii
Galloway, were arraigned in the dis
trict court on the charge of burglary.
The charges preferred against the
three men were that they entered the
Wetenkamp home and took therefrom
a pair of shoes, one army shirt, one
coat, one overcoat, two new Goodrich
tires and a few other smaller article,
and the value of the good taken wan
over $60. At the time of the burg
lary there was no one at the Weten
kamp home and the young men stated
to the court that they had disposed
of the two tires in Omaha for the
sum of S20 and the authorities wtro
able to recover a number of the other
articles taken from the person! of
the young men.
The story of the burglary was re
vealed Saturday night when Zaubeck.
Manners and a young man nameil
Burke were apprehended with a
quantity of liquor in their possession
and at the time one of the parties
was wearing a shirt taken from the
Wetenkamp home and Sheriff Quin

ed the full story of the venture In
crime and going to the Galloway
home asked Erman for the Roods that
had been taken from the Wetenkamp
home and these were promptly turn
ed over to the sheriff and the young
man taken into custody.
At the trial before Judge Henley,
he lectured the boys on the offense
that they had committed and par
ticularly in the case of James Zau
beck, who had been given lenient
treatment at Nebraska City, on the
charge of stealing a car and the court
reminded him of his proniiae to go
in the f;traiht and narrow path. As
it was the second offense for this
young man, he was given a sentence
of frsm one to five years in the state
BTJian Galloway stated that he
had been with the two other men at
the time but had not received any
part of the sum received from the
stolen tires. The court then decided
that as the other two defendants.
Manners and Galloway were charged
with their first offense, they would
not require as severe treatment and
they were given a sentence of three
ironths in the county Jail and re
manded to the custody of Sheriff C.
