BEHIND JAIL BARS
Sandy Oriswold Sent to Jail For
Complicity in a Murder.
PRELIMINARY HEARING TODAY
Lindsay and GrUwold Dave Their Hear
ing IJef ore Justice Archer At the
Court House Strode the Nomi
Sandy Griawold was behind the bars
over at the Pearl street jail last night
in company with Jimmy Lindsey,
charged with being an accessory to the
murder of Fletcher Ilobbina.
Late yesterday afternoon when the
coroner's inquest had been concluded
and the jury had retired to formulate
a verdict, Griawold was taken before
Judge Archer to be admitted to bail.
The only charge against him at that
time was for aiding and abetting at a
prize fight, and after the court had
fixed his bond at $2,000 and the same
had been furnished, Griswold was for
mally released and in company with
his father-in-law and lawyers marched
down onto the streets again a free
man. It was then near to the time of
the departure of the north-bound M
P. train, and as the party had planned
to board that train for Omaha, a hack
was hailed to convey them to the M
P. depot. It was then, however, that
Sheriff Eikenbary executed a clever
coup. During the proceedings before
Justice Archer, the coroner's jury had
returned a verdict recommending the
prosecution of Lindsey on a charge of
murder, and Griswold as accessory.
Lindsey was already iu jail, but
County Attorney Travis speedily made
out a new warrant for Griswold and
handed it to Sheriff Eikenbary. It
was on the latter warrant that the
sheriff informed Griswold that he
must be held and his action served as
a sort of bomb shell, so great was the
consternation within the ranks of the
Griswold party. A hasty trip was
made to the sheriff's office and after
a half hour's consultation Griswold
came down and was taken over to the
iailand nut behind the bars. The
man broke down completely when
placed in a cell and his sobbings were
plainly audible to the large crowd out
side, which had witnessed his arrest
and had followed to the jail.
The preliminary examination of
Lindsey and Griswold was set for this
morning, but matters were slow in
progressing and the hearing was not
commenced until after two o'clock.
The office of Justice Archer was found
much too small to accommodate the
audience at yesterday's proceedings
and the hearing is accordingly being
held in the big district court room. A
small army of witnesses have been
summoned and as their examination
will take considerable time it is hardly
possible that the matter will be con
eluded before tomorrow evening. The
charge against both men is an of
fense which will not admit of their
being released on bail and Bhould
Justice Archer conclude to bind them
over, the men will be forced to await
their trial in district court behind the
bars at the Pearl street jail.

Tariff Bill Frightens Distillers.
John Tighe, gauger for the past six
months at the Willow Springsdistillery
in Omaha, has received notice from
Internal Itevenue Collector North that
his services are needed at Peoria, Ills.,
and Mr. Tighe departed for that place
Wednesday. The new tariff bill as
passed by congress on Monday raises
the tax on alcohol, and the distilleries
all over the country, and especially at
Peoria, which town has more of such
institutions than any place in the
world, are making a special effort to
unload all of their product now on
band onto the market before the tariff
clause affecting alcohol becomes opera
tive. As a consequence the distillers
at Peoria have filed a request with the
revenue department for more gangers,
and the request, out of necessity, must
be recognized. Peoria already has a
large staff of gaugers, but the number
will be increaseed forthwith some
twenty men, gaugers going from all
over the country. It is nothing short
of a slick scheme on the part of the
distillers to bunco Uncle Sam.

that the tisb from La Platte slough

"The Nebraska fish commission car
'A' passed over the Burlington Satur
day evening enroute from the state
hatcheries at La Platte to Lincoln,
where it is intended to stock the
streams in Lincoln park with 1,000
yearling bass. Fish Commissioner
May says that the hatching ponds at
La Platte are drying up, and that the
young fiish will have to be moved to
the live steams over the state, where
ever there is a certainty that the fish
and game laws will be enforced. Four
or five carloads of the young fish will
be distributed as soon as possible. The
next carload goes to Hastings."

says: "The writer visited Plattsmouth
on Monday, and for the first time
gazed upon that magnificent structure,

is an honor, as well as an ornament

the will of the people, together with
their deputies, are a genial, courteous
lot of gentlemen who seen to take
pride in making county visitors feel
themselves at home, and notwith

REPDBS AT WABASH.
Judge Chapman Names His Delega

POLK FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Dutton for Commissioner Judge Chap
man Allowed to Selert the Dele
gates to the Congressional
Cass County Republicans Convene.
The republicans of Cass held their
county convention at Wabash Satur
day, and from all accounts it was an
exceedingly tame affair, enthusiasm
being a stranger to the assembly. The
convention was held in the park, a
pretty place with plenty of shade trees
on every side, and at the conclusion of
the convention the delegates were
rather thankful to the central com
mittee for giving Wabash the conven
tion, for more pleasant surroundings
could not have been secured.
Hon. R. B. Windham of this city
was made chairman and R. S. Wilkin
son, of Weeping Water, was chosen
secretary, and after the usual delay
over credentials, the convention got
down to business.
The congressional fight showed
its hand at the very first
and a resolution was intro
duced giving Judge Chapman, the
candidate for the congressional nomi
nation from this county, the right to
name his own delegation. The resolu
tion further extended the same right
to S. W. Orton to name a delegation
of his own to the float representative
convention between Cass and Otoe.
The Polkites, under ordinary circum
stances, would have resisted the ex
tension of this privilege to Judge
Chapman, but as C. Sigel Polk had an
ax of his own to grind, and as to resist
it meant to down the latter and Mr.
Orton, as well, they could do aught
but fall in line and help pass the
resolution, which was done by a unan

John Davies for the house went
through by acclamation, but Cooley,
the "sweet singer," had au opponent
in the person of Peter Eveland. The
ballot stood 107 for Cooley and 51 for
Eveland, and Cooley s name was also
added to the ticket.
The contest over the nomination for
for county attorney was more interest
ing, but C. S. Polk won out in four
ballots over Jesse Root and Jake
Haldeman. The ballots stood as fol
lows: First ballot Po!k, "7; Root, 30;
Second ballot Polk, 77;ltooi., 3.5;
Third ballot Polk, 77; Root, 4S;
Fourth ballot Polk, !)S; Root, 4S;
The convention was then adjourned
to allow the delegates from the first
commissioner's district to make a
nomination, and after S. W. Dutton
had been put up for the slaughter, the
hostilities were called to a close.

vention are: R. B. Windham, Joseph
