The preliminary hearing of Tim
Whalen on the charge of attempting
an assault last Saturday on Martha
Luchinsky with a vile intent, was
called op in Justice Archer's court
this afternoon and an audience which
taxed the capacity of the court room
was on hand to overhear the proceed
ings. Byron Clark, Wbalen's attor
ney, started the proceedings by filing
an affidavit alleging that the defense
was short on material evidence which
it could not for the present produce,
and asked for a continuance of thirty
days. County Attorney Travis re
sisted the granting of thecontinuance,
bit Mr. Clark sprung a supremo court
I ,.( 1 which he claimed made it
ta tilt tory for the court to grant the
; 1 .1 1 1 aai e, and the defense was ac
; : li sly givati the relief asked. The
11. or ities allege that influence has
ij i s i brought to bear on a few of the
state's witnesses with the object of
keeping them out of court, and for
this reason County Attorney Travis
took the precaution to have all of the
witnesses called into court, where their
recognizance in thesum of 8100 each
was taken for their appearance when
the hearing comes up thirty days
Whalen's bond was fixed at 8500. It
is stated that he will be able to furnish
the required bond, and in that event
he will be free until the date of the
Gospel Meeting: For Men.
On Sunday Dec. 2nd, at Waterman's
hall, at 2:30 there will be held a gospel
meeting for men only, addressed by
Bro. Yontzy of the Christian church.
This meeting has been arranged by the
local W. C. T.U.to whom Bro. Yontzy
tendered his services. All men espe
cially the young men are earnestly in
vited to attend this meeting.

CHEER A CONVICT'S CONTROL.
The state of Nebraska bears the dis
tinction of being the only state whose
penitentiary is under lease to a convict.
Mosher, who is serving a term in the
Sioux Fails penitentiary, holds a lease
on the Nebraska penitentiary, and bis
lease will not expire for sometime yet,
and his interests are looked after by
an old friend as manager. The federal
rand jury, now in session at Omaha,
is after Mosher's associates in the
Capital National bank wreckage, and
it is likely that several big birds will
be brought down from the high
branches. The investigation into
Mosher's methods by the federal grand
jury promises to disclose many sensa
tional features, the most startling be
ing the close connection of several
prominent names with Mosher and his
methods, and the new light thrown
upon several transactions will be full
of surprises for the public.
It is said to be the purpose of the
Majors outfit, according to the Bee, to
get a resolution through the legislature
to provide for a recount of the ballots
cast for governor, in the expectation of
throwing Ilolcomb out. We don't see
hew that would help Majors, because
he has allowed the day for giving no
tice of a contest to go by without ac
tion. If Majors friends really thought
he had been counted out they should
have contested, and then a recount
would have availed them to some extent.
Why would it not be a good plan to
have Judge Brewer appointed general
law censor, now that he can suspend
laws at will. Notwithstanding he de
clares them constitutional? If Mr.
Davies were to introduce a resolution
in the house to that effect no doubt it
would go through with a whoop. In
our judgment Judge Brewer makes a
better Sunday school teacher than he
does a judge of law.
Oxk of the most remarka ble defal
cation sever made was that recently
discovered wherein Samual C. Seley,
a book-keeper in the Shoe and Leather
bank of New York robbed that con
cern out of $454,000 and then decamped
with only $200 of the money. It seems
that Seeley had an accomplice in the
person of Frederick It. Baker, who got
all the money, in 5200 lots, and while
living like a prince, during the last ten
years in which this system of robbery,
by means of false entries, has been go
ing on, and pretended to'invest it for
the benefit of both. Seeley on the
other hand, has been almost a recluse,
living very quietly, and frugally, with
his wife, never spending a cent, even
stinting himself in every way, even
denying himself soda water to save
nickels and dimes toward paying on
the house in which he lived. Baker,
the chief beneficiary, and in fact the
only one, has committed suicide by
drowning. Seeley has disappeared.
What was the impelling motive for all
this years of forgery and fraud? That
is a question that is of difficult solu
tion in this case. lie must have been
enduring a living hell all these years
It must have been the result of hypno

There is serioua talk of a congres
sional investigation of Grover and his
Wall street pals relative to the issue
of more bonds. If there is any way to
get at the bottom of the conspiracy to
increase the interest-bearing debt ot
the country, it is to be hoped that
Grover and a few more gold -bug
chumps may be bounced from office. If
ever a president deserved impeachment
the present one does. Nothing would
restore the party so much as to drive
the whole gang into retirement. Crete
B. F. JoxKS.the Pittsburg iron tariff
baron and at one time chairman of the
republican national committee, says
"the work of restoring the tariff to
what it was two years ago should begin
immediately. This kind of agitation
will be for the better." Are we, then
after all, to have the McKinley bill re
enacted in its entirety? The democrats
could ask nothing better.
