District Court was in session last
woek. There was but ono jury trialj
and but fow witnesses nnd litigants,
and as farm or a wanted to got homo as
soon as posslblo to attend to spring
work, it was an exceedingly dull court,
and failed to bo a bonanza for tho ho
tols and restaurants; and scarcely sue
ceodod in marring the usual holiday
polish of tho excessively quiet and
law abiding old burg.
Judge Pound was promptly In his
seat Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock, and
Sheriff Tate made tho usual formal
proclamation, that tho honorable dis
trict court is now open, etc., and called
tho spectators and attendants to order.
Tho Sheriff had ox-Sheriff D. Plas
tors employed as second In command,
with a corps of lioutanantB, viz: Tim
McLaughlin, John M. Klocknor, Jim
Johnson and Grant Clover. Thero was
but little use for juries, at this term,
and there was but ono indictment
found by the grand jury. Tho latter,
however, got in two days and u half,
buing discharged Thursday at noon.
Tlio lawyers present won' John C.
Watsoiu district, attorney, T. R. Ste
venson, Nebraska City; U. J. Stowpll,
Sheridan; W. F. Straub, Cincinnati,

court and bar got along most pleasant
ly indoed with each othor, the lawyers
indulging in nothing more disagreeable
than supposed sharp sarcasm and witty
retorts. They all like Judgo.Pound.

There was a pleasant episode to the
usual monotonous i untitle of court
proceedings on Friday evening, when
Mr, Rogers rosoaud proceeded to make
some remurks, which the judge failed
to get the precise gist of until Rogers
handed him a neat leathern case and
said somoching about white gloves, a
present from tho lawyers. Judge P.
responded in a few well chosen words,
accepting the gift. Tho reason of this
neat littlo presentation was tho ob
servance of a custom with judicial
bar to present the judge a pair of
white gloves kid, wo presumo, as woro
those on occasions when there aro no
criminal cases during the term.
In the case of Barbara Dodd against

Pollock was unwoll during most of tho

Somebody circulated tho story that
Jim Blaino was about to turn from tho
evil of his ways and be a Congrega
tional preacher. Blaine denies it. Iri
fact, he became angry when he heard
of the effort tomako a preacher instead
of a president of him, and said right
out in meetin' that it was "an infamous ,
lie." Without intonding nny affront
to Mr. Blaine, somoof his pious friends
may really think preaching would bo a

they remain the less thoy know, and
it is only a waste of timo und money."
