A man from Focatello, Idaho, re
cently sent to Salt Lake for some fur
niture. His local dealer, hearing of
this, called on him and said: "I had
those same goods. Why didn't you
buy from tre? "What, did you have
them ? " was the surprised rejoinder.
"I nevtr thought so; but I saw an ad
of the things I wanted in the Salt
Lake papers and sent for them." The
moral is apparent.
A force of B. & M. linemen are at
work putting in new copper telegraph
wire throughout the entire local yards.
It is the experience of the company
that copper wire gives much the best
satisfaction, as the smoke from switch
engines has the result of rusting out
the wire now in use in a comparatively
short time. C. E. Yates, superinten
dent of the telegraphing department,
was in town for a few hours today
looking after the matter.
C. II. Babcock, the real estate agent,
has just completed a property trade

some Havelock and Omaha lots in ex

California. Mr. McCourt will retain
his business interests in this city but
bis family will remove some time this
winter to the California farm. Mrs.
llcCourt's health is poor, and it was
for that reason that the trade was
H'HjDer la Trouble A;uiu.
Wm. Wagner, better known in this
locality as "Sleek Bill," is again in
trouble. Bill has made quite a record
for himself during the past several
years. His meanness was not displayed
to any alarming extent until after the
death of his wife some four years ago,
when he won the affections of the
young wife of old Jno. T. Hawks, a
farmer down in the country, and
caused their separation. Later on be
betrayed one of Hawks' young daugh
ters and was forced to marry her, but
no sooner was the ceremony performed
than he left the girl to care for herself
and child. The sister of his first wife
was a widow and he secured her to act
as his housekeeper and care fur his
two children. ' The woman eventually
made known her intention of marry
ing and Bill threatened to shoot her if
she should marry any but himself.
The woman refused to be thus coerced
and Bill made threats of suiciding.
This was a bigger bluff than ever as
he bad been careful to remove the
cartridge s from hi pistol lfire pull
ing the trigger. This wasalxmi two
years ao, and a short time after lit
moved to Omaha, where it is s iid that
he ag:iiii married without going

Mr. S.ue ooI him the apples and Wag.
ner promised t be down either- on
S itnrd.i or .!omI,iy last and p y for
the apple. He fniied to appearand
Mr. Sage instituted an investigation
and learned that Bill had no apple
contract at all. He had simply driven
the load of apples to Omaha and ped
dled them ouc by the bushel. Mr.
Sage has filed a complaint before Jus
tice Archer charging him with ob
taining goods under false pretenses.
It has developed that Wagner has
recently been living with a laundry
woman in South Omaha, and Sheriff
Eikenbary went to that place Friday
morning to bring Bill to this city for
trial. The sheriff soon located his
man and brought him to this city that
evening and placed him in jail.
Another of Wagner's questionable
deals has come to light. It appears
that he buncoed one Aleck Powell, a
farmer living on the Iowa bottoms,
out of a load of onions on the same
kind of a deal as he worked on Sage.
Powell threatens to make Wagner
suffer unless he puts up the coin for
the onions. Powell, however must
take his turn as Wagner has two other
prosecutions to answer before Powell
can get a whack at him.
The criminal prosecution against
Wm. Wagner, held before Justice
Archer on Monday on the charge; of
defrauding Elids Sage out of a load of
apples valued at t:?0, went against the
prisoner. The testimony showed
Wagner up as being an unprincipled
villain and the court took great pleas
ure, and justly too, in giving Wagcer
a thirty day's sentence in the county
jail. The costs amounted to over $28,
and Wagner's term of imprisonment
will thereby be extended to thirty
eight days. When be gets out the au
thorities may have something else in
store for him.

who had not died, experts have been
going over his books and report a
shortage of not far from $3,000. Last
week some discrepancy was noted in
his accounts, and he saw that the
books would soon be investigated. He
asked leave to lay off a day to attend
the funeial of his grandmother in
Council Bluffs, where he retained his
home. That worthy lady isj-tillon

no doubt be his bondsmen.

The late election was replete with
surprises throughout the country, but
none were greater than the fact that,
although the republicans have prob
ably carried every congressional dis
trict in the state of Nebraska
and elected two-thirds of
the legislature, their candidate for
governor, for whom they made their
greatest struggle was defeated and
Silas A Holcomb was elected by a plu
rality of almost 3.000. This fact is
now conceded by the republican stale
central committee. The victory is not
of great consequence, although its very
significant doing much to vindicate
the course pursued by Mr. Rosewater
and bis Omaha Bee.
