The tra-ric death of CoL .Smith at
Omaha has no paral-ell in the previ

Even in the early days, when we
were considered rough, on the bor

ed the record, and the state -owes it
to herself that the cause of the deed,
be ascertained and swift punishment
cneted to the assassin.
That he died a martyr to his sense
of the duty he owed society in trying
to have an obnozious law enforce
there seems no doubt. No man in
this state stood higher, had more
friends than Watson B. Smith, and

should -oome in this way. The Edi

years, has experienced many kind

Col. Watson B,. Smita, Clsrt of the
U. S, District Court,
Cireat Excitement.
From the Telegram.
Col. Watson B. Smith, clerk of the
United States district court, was
murdsred at his affice door Friday
night, at some unknown hour, the
dead body being found at about
2:40 o'clock. No clue to the assassin
has vet been found.
Col. Smith returned Friday after
noon from David City, where he had
keen with his family visiting friends
of Mrs.' Smith, leaving his wife and
children "to complete their visit.
That evening, as-' is frequently his
habit, he came down to his oitice to
attend to some business, leaving his
house at about 7 o'clock! His mother,
the only member of the family who
was in the city, became awakened
at about 11 o'clock, and seeing that
ilr, sjrjith luid not returned, arose and
dressed, and js.ent into the residence
of a neighbor. They persuaded her
that there had been some
unusual detention
at the Colonel's office a;d partially
quieted her fears. She returned to
bd. but as the time wore on and he
dia not come, she again arose and tel
pppned to the central office, asking
that a b(oy b,e pent to Col. Smith's
.office, the operator repuea tnaf, l.p
was alone and had no one to 'send.' She
then stepped into the residence of Dr,
Moore, a neighbor, asked the Dr. if he
would not do something toward hud
ing Mr. Smith. This was about two
o'plpcfc. The doctor telephoned t
Ku'h'ns drug &tor at the corner of
Fifteenth and Douglas streets, 'and
Mr. Kuhn immediately dressed and
stepped up to the 'Colonel's i office to
see if he ras there. There was a light
jn the post-office in the first floor, but
the lipper rooms and hall wero appar
entlv dark and deserted. A3 Mr. li'uhn
gioped his way toward the door of the
Colonel's oSic, he stumbled over
some object on the floor and stoopipg

at once concluded that tho body vyas
that of Col. Smith, rushed down stairs,
and tanning at the window of the
ladies' delivery, requested Mr. Kennis-

indicating that ha had thrown it on
hurriedly in order to take the last
street car for his home. His hat lay
beneath his Ijead as hp had fallen, and
was Jn a large pool qt clotted blood,
which extended over several square
feet of the floor. A postal card, and
two business letters and a bundle of
newspapers lay a short distance frm

placed Jhere by f.ip asgassip, arter the
body had fallen. The keys were in
the door which stood ajar. Looking
more closely at the bead an ugly hole
was diseov6iea on the lift tide, appar
ly made by a blow. Subsequently,
however, it was found to have been
made by a bullet, which passed
through the head, made an indentation
on the north wall, and fell to the floor,

The revolver from which It was fired,
was a self cocker, of the bull dog pat

stiver plated trimmings.
.from the legation fir" tho wound,
th key3, etc., it would appear that the
Colonel had placed the keys in the
door before turning out the gas, had
then extinguished his light, and was
shot as he emerged frm the door.
The rqrderer evidently stood facing
the windpw and at the Colonl'a left
as he emergpd 'from the doer. The
meon was shining brightly outside,
and facing the window the aE&a&ln
probably had sufficient light to distin
guish the outline of the Colonel's form
when he came out, and then fired the
fatal shot. The murderer must have
been of the most desperate character
to have attempted such a deed in that
spot, with post office officials at work
on the first floor, and with a signal
service officer on the floor abwva.

examination of the body, deciding to
leave it there till daylight, and leaving

The jury after consultation found

That the deceased came to his death

of Omaha, Nebraska, aftor ten o'clock
and fifteen minutes, on the night of

other than the mustering in of re
cruits. In this connection I will call atten
tion to the faqt that there is no other
regular meeting before the meeting on
Tuesday, the 13th. of December, the
first meeting in December, at which
Officers are to be elected for the ensu
ing year . All the officers of the Pott,
find, especially the old charter members
are particularly requested to be pres
ent at this meeting as matters of par
ticular import to the future welfare
and continuance of the Post are likely
to come up and the entire Post should
turnout. Our dues to the ttat.e De
partment and the business of thjj year
should be settled, before the election
of new officers, and in many respects
it is highly impoitant that all the old
members and" especially the charter
members of the Post should be pres
ent. Remember the date.
