Murray Robbers
Given Sentence
to Penitentiary
Ernest Verhule Receives Seven Years
and Thomas Hunt Three Years
at Hard Labor
From Saturday's Dairy
I his morning the district court occupied in hearing the charges
against Ernest Verhule of this city
and Thomas Hunt r.lias "Thomas
Martin," both men being charged
with the crime of breaking and en
tering of the store of Earl Lancaster
at Murray on the night of October
ine two prisoners hau entered a
plea of guilty in the county court
and waived preliminary hearing and
on being arraigned in the district
court renewed their plea of guilty
and received their sentence, Verhule
receiving seven" years in the state
penitentiary and Hunt three years
at hard labor.
ine nrst or the men to be ar
raignea was Ernest vernuie and a
pathetic note of the proceedings was
the fact that his aged mother with
her snowy hair and partially crip
pled condition was present in the
court room and stood with the son
a part of the time as he was reciting
his story of the crime.
erhule stated at the opening that
he had no reason to offer for not
receiving his sentence but asked the
court to be as lenient as possible on
account of the aged mother. Under
questioning by Judge Begley, Verhule
stated that he had served a previous
term in the state penitentiary of
Nebraska for two years and had been
released tnree years ago. He gave
his occupation as that of linotype
operator and that he had been work
ing for the Omaha Linotype Co.,
prior to his getting into the robbery
at Murray. He gave his age as
twenty-five years and his home resi
dence as this city. He stated that
he had been out with another party
drinking quite heavily on the night
of the robbery and that no nlans to
rob the Lancaster store had been
made until they had reached Mur-
ray.- In regard -to- the car that they
had driven, -Verhule stated that he
did not know where teh car had
come from, that the other man had
secured the car. Mr. Verhule stated
that he had not had a gun or done
any shooting but on questions by
the court the sheriff and county at
torney stated that shots had been
fired at Murray and evidence indi
cated that the prisoner was the man
having the gun
After the statement of Verhule,
Judge Begley pronounced the sen
tence and in view of the fact that
the lives of parties had been en
dangered by shooting he gave the
prisoner a sentence of seven years
in the state penitentiary at Lincoln.
When the prisoner received the
sentence he expressed a desire to
withdraw the plea of guilty but as
the sentence had been pronounced
this was not allowed, the prisoner
expressed the desire to take a chance
on a jury trial in the case but too
late In the proceedings
The companion of Verhule,
Thomas Hunt, alias "Thomas Mar
tin," was then brought before the
bar of justice to relate his story of
the crime. He stated that he was 27
years of age, married and had one
child, that his occupation was that
of a salesman and that he had been
engaged in this work up to the time
of the robbery. He had met Verhule
a week before the robbery in Omaha
at a candy kitchen. No plans had
been made as to robbing the store at
Murray that he knew of until he
and Verhule had reached Murray..
He Btated that Verhule had a revol
ver and had fired four shots during
the getaway from the scene of the
robbery. Hunt ; stated that he had
served time in South Dakota for
breaking and entering In 1925 and
had been released after serving his
time. He stated that he and Verhule
had planned to go to South Dakota
when they drove to Murray and Ver
hule wished to stop in Plattsmouth
to see his mother. '
County Attorney W. G. Kieck in
response to the inquiry of the court
stated that Hunt or "Martin" had

aid of the officers should carry some
measure of lienciency, that his rec-
ord was quite bad and both he and
his companion were in the class of I
hardened criminals.
Hunt supplemented his first state-
ment as to the incidents of the rob-
bery by stating that Verhule had
fired a snot at ms ieet in iront oi
the Murray store to induce him to
join in the robbery. The first in
timation that the prisoner had of the
robbery was when Verhule had ask
ed him if he wished to make some
money and Martin had inquired how
this was to be done and then Ver
hule ' had said "in this store." the
prisoner had then refused and Ver
hule had fired the shot at him and
in fear of his life he had entered
the store of Earl Lancaster with
The court then sentenced Hunt or
Martin to a term of three years in J
the state penitentiary at. Lincoln at
hard labor.'" I
Both men were remanded to the
custody of Sheriff Bert Reed and
were later in the day taken to Lin
coln to start serving their terms.

The Bible saysthat man's allotted
time is three score years and ten,
and then it says something else
which we will not quote, but this
much we will say, that while a man
is expected to make the very best
use of the three score years and ten,
he is especially expected to use to the
best advantage the years which he
borrows afterwards. Our friend,
Phillip E. Sauter, was born at Farm
ington, Iowa, in Van Buren county.
on the 23rd day of October, 1857,
and writh the parents resided there
for some four years and just long
enough for young Phillip to know
when they moved away.
That was an early day even in
Iowa, and with the family he went
to Keokuk, where they passed over
the Mississippi river, this during the
first fighting in the civil war, and
went to Monmouth, 111. There they
resided during the civil war, and
longer for they went to Manitou,
south of Peoria in 1868, three years
after the close of the war. This was
near the first of Mr. Sauters ex

father who was a shoe maker and
later Mr. Sauter took up the harness
making trade, and was united In
marriage with Miss Matie McKinney

continued to make their home in the
vicinity of Pekin, 111., until in 1S91,
when they came to Plattsmouth,
where he embarked in the harness
making business, remaining here for
seventeen years and at that time
closing out his business, departing for
California, where they remained for
nearly seventeen years, returning to
Omaha in 1923, and after having
resided there for some three years,
they came to Plattsmouth to make
their home at the Nebraska Masonic
