The Float In Parade.
Regarding the parade of floats at
Omaha on the occasion of the State
fair the committee desires that every
county in the state be represented. A
circular has been issued, from which
the following has been taken:
To raise the standard of these floats
this association offers a cash premium
for two of the best productions. First
prize S75, second prize $W. Douglas
county floats will not compete with
other counties in the state for prizes
We will furnish horses to draw the
floats while on the streets in the par
ade. We suggest that these floats be
built on running gear and loaded on
cars and brought to Omaha ready to
enter the parade. The maximum
height of any float must not exceed
fifteen feet, so as to admit passing un
der trolley wires.
The parade will pass through the
principal streets of the metropolis of
Nebraska; one-quarter million people
will witness the passing pageantry.
Fireworks and electric displays will
light and beautify the line of march,
bands will discourse excellent music.
No such display will ever have been
presented west of St. Louis or Chicago,
and we appeal to your citizens to join
us in making this the proudest day of
our great state, and the beginning of a
new era in our prosperity.

A Motion for a New Trial to- Be Followed
by Appeal to the Supreme Court on
Legal Technicalities The People
Pleased With the Jury's Work
Would Have Been
Lynched If Acquitted.
Carrollton, Mo., Aug. 5. The
counsel for the defense in the Taylor
case are busy to-day preparing a bill of
exceptions and a motion for a new
trial. This will be presented to the
court next Tuesday. It is not at all
likely that a new trial will be grant ed
and they will take the case to the su
preme court. One of the errors they
will claim is the fact that one of the
young attorneys for the state,
in ' his argument, said to the
jury: "They have not placed
Mrs. William Taylor on the witness
stand. Why was this?" The court
rebuked him and told him to keep
within the record of the case and in
structed the official reporter to make a
note of it. The defense claim that the
statutes make this a particularly re
versible error. The defense, before
the case went to trial, objected to the
panel of forty, and to the twelve jury
men chosen, particularly because all
except four of them had stated that
they had expressed an opinion as to
the guilt of the Taylors, but more than
that they could and would try the case
on the evidence. They will object on
the ground that the very atmosphere
ot Carroll county was so full of hos
tility to the defendants that a fair
trial could not be had. The bill of ex.
ceptions, in the event that their mo
tion for a new trial is overruled, will
be a long one.
Virgil Conklin, for the defense, said
this morning: "We are, of course, very
much depressed at the verdict. We
have fought hard and fiercely for the
lives of the Taylors. I have nothing
except what is courteous, to say for the
court. Judge Rucker has tried the
case fairly and impartially, and has
granted us what we were entitled to.
Some of the state's witnesses were
well, I will say mistaken. In the
event of a new trial, which we expect,
we will make a much harder fight than
before, and will certainly disprove
some of the state's testimony. We
could not get a fair trial in Carroll
county. The air is full of vengeance
and it could not be kept out of the
i'ury room. However, what criticisms
have to make I will make in open
A man who came in from Browning
and Brook field said that the excite
ment at those towns when the word
that the Taylors had been convicted
was received was intense. The tele
graph operator received a telegram
over the wire five minutes after the
verdict had been rendered and the
news spread like wildfire. People
shotfted "Thank God;" "That's good;"
"Linn county is vindicated," and other
expressions of their relief at the end
ing of the case.
"Had the Taylors been acquitted
and had they returned to Linn or Sul
livan counties," this man continued,
"they would not have lived ten min
utes after they were first seen. The
people were terribly worked up over
this thing and would brook nothing.
It seems cruel to look at the matter in
this light, but consider their career of
crime, capped by the butchery of the
Meeks family. No man in that section
can think of it and keep cool."
The town is deserted and has re
solved itself once more into a staid
country town. All the witnesses,
jurors and spectators have left for
their homes. Judge Rucker left for
his home at Keytesville this morning
and will return to open court on Mon
day and will hear the Taylor's motion
for a new trial Tuesdav.

The Notorious Iowa Prohibition Law
Violator an Evangelist.
Albia, Iowa, Aug 5. "Stormy"
Jordan of Wapello county, who has
given the authorities more trouble in
Iowa on the prohibition question than
any other half dozen persons, has
joined the Methodist church and has

Before the prohibition law' was passed

ure. Times without number he was
arrested and fined for selling liquor
unlawfully, and many times was im
prisoned. He was " considered the
toughest case in the state, and
"Stormy" Jordan was known far and
near by all the outlawed characters.
He was constantly under police sur
veillance, lie appeals now to his old
associates most fervently, and is now
pointing the way to heaven with as
much fervor as he formerly did to
hades. Hundreds flock nightly to
hear him.

Daughter of the Richest Man In Uason,
Ohio, Breaks Up a Church.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Augl. A fetr
days ago Miss Ida Coleman, daughter
of the richest man in Warren county,
and organist of the Methodist church
at Mason, bought a wheel. Then she
appeared at the base ball park in red
bloomers. The pastor, the Rev. J. J.
Wadsworth, smiled at her, but others
derided her. Saturday night a com
mittee waited on the minister and com
manded him to denounce bloomers the
following day. Sunday Mr. Wads
worth did not refer to Miss Coleman,
bicycle or bloomers. That night he
was told that he either had to de
nounce Miss Coleman's riding habit or
resign. He was given until last night
to do so.
Last night a prayer meeting was
held. Parson Wadsworth was in the
pulpit. The benches and aisles were
crowded. Miss Coleman waited until
the audience became restless for music
Then she strode down the aisle dressed
in bloomers as red as the sun and took
her seat at the organ. Some familiar
tunes were sung and played, but be
fore the minister could begin to pray
his audience, or at least the most of it,
had dispersed. As they were leaving
the building they were hissed. After

Coleman's friends continued the ser

Cheyenne, Wyo., Aug 1. The In
dian scare is spreading far to the south
and east of Jackson's Hole and settlers
in Fremont county are becoming
alarmed. Governor Richards last night
received the following from Dr. W.
Lovejoy of South Pass, in the Miners
Delight mining district:
South Pass, July 30. There is a
band of from 100 to 300 Indians within
a half day's ride of this place. They
are all bucks and things look shady
here. We have plenty of ammunition
and men, but need guns. Can you send
a few stands of arms?
Shortly after the receipt of the above
the following was received from Lead
stone, in the same district:
Lewiston, July 30. Can you send us
guns? Indians are near here.
The governor says the Indians no
doubt are Utes from Duchesne, who
are hanging around in the hope that
there will be a big fight with the Ban
nocks which will give them an oppor
tunity to make an attack upon these
settlers and get back to their reserva
tion before the troops could interfere
with them.

it is the impression here that some one
imposed on the reporters.

at Argonia and was held in the sum of
$2,000. lie is accused of corrupt prac
tices in office. lie is alleged to have
agreed to give his vote to the Sumner

1894. Farout is a Republican. It is
the first case instituted under the
Douglass corrupt practice act.
