will always find hosts of;fellows who are
willing to sacrifice themselves for sonic
good fat office. Such is the ense now,

It looks very much like the pro
posed U. 1. railway was no .mall
matter. The head officials of that line
with their special coach were in this
city for three or four days last week,
looking the country over, and we
would not be surprised to hear that
grading for the recently surveyed oad
had commenced. We hope it will.
A great many complaints have
been made, and our attention has been
called several times to a bad sewer
which is in close proximity to the de

fectly awful at times. The proper au

Such places are regular breeders of dis
ease. We would like to sec some, town

the above named institutions. Let

One week ago, Joe Cook, the alleged
murderer of Leonard Rail, did not
have a friend in Webster county, but
the bruta! treatment he received atBlue
Hill the other day has made himJ
many. The proper thing for the peo
ple to have done, would have been to
give him a fair trial in the district
court, and then if the law did not do
justice, it would be time for the people
to act. If the law is lame the people of
Nebraska are to blame for it.
The head officers of the B. & M.
were in Red Cloud during the latter
part of the week. It is said that sur
veyors have been working for six
weeks on a line between this city and
Burr Oak, but how true this story is
we cannot say. We only hope that
there is more truth in it than fiction.

Rev. R. T. Dillard, D. D., and was born
in Fayette county, Kentucky, Febru
ary 23d, 1S33, married May 3, 1S59,
and with her husband and family
came to Red Cloud in the winter of
1576. where she has since resided. She
was an earnest Christian and a mem
ber of the Baptist Church. By her
death this community loses one of its
most estimnble members, her husband
a fond and loving wife, and her chil
dren a true and devoted mother. The
remains were conveyed to their final
resting place on Wednesday afternoon
by a large concourse of sorrowing rel
atives and friends.

On Just Friday quite en excitement
w caused in thU city over the an
nouncement thatshcriif Warren h.id
Arretted and wa- bringing Joapfa
Cook, the nHoged murderer of Leonard
Rail to tho city, and would read: here
that morning at S:25. In conejuenre
a targe crowd was at the depot arkKi
to tee the man who could cuinoxit n
a crime. Finally th train cams in
and the prbonor was taken to thfc
Gardner house, itrongly guarded. All
day long the streets of Ked Cloud nerc
literally swarming with pctople from
Blue Iiilland vicinity, who were ox
trcmcly anxious to avenge the death
of Hall by lynching Cook, and had it
not been for the influence of our prom
mon. citizens, we dare say that Cook
would have been in his grave, as the
people were bent 0:1 having blood,
i lore and there could be seen small
crowds of excited man discussing the
crime and the man who committed the
deed. It could be plainly olwervcd
what was passing through their minds.
ISxciltnient run high, but the better
counsels of our citieus prevailed and
the lynchers decided that it was only
fair to give him a trial, and along to
ward night began dispersing for their
various homes. But we suppose the
mo.-o they thought over the matter the
more intense became their feelings on
subject. However the sherill was
prepared to quell any outbreak that
might have occured in this city.
Later in the day Charley Winfrey
came in with the team and uagon
which Rail was riding in when mur
dered. They were found in or near
White Rock, Kansas, where Cook had
traded them to a farmer for a black
team and something to boot. Many
people visited the wagon and team out
of curiosity during the day. It seems
from what could be learned, and Cook's
own story, that hi must have had a
confederate and'after the crime had
been committed,they took to a south
easterly course for the Kansas hue
crossing tho Republican river at Su
perior, and from there to St Joe where
lie was arrested later on by the Snenfl'.
One thing is certain, as a criminal
Cook did not show good judgement, for
at nearly every corner he would en
quire for the road and by this
means Shcnil Warren was easily able
to track him with a certainty that
would lead to his arrest at no late date.
Once upon his track Sheriff Warren
followed the trail with all possible
haste to St. Joe, where the airc?t
was made. "Murder will out'' and'
a man who dabbles in human blood is
sure to reap the consequence sooner
or later. When arrested Cook
DENIED TIIF. MUKDnn,
but admitted that he had worked for
Rail, but did not know that ho was
dead, and -to this story he still clings
with great tenacity. Howevor, t--'mco
coming to Nebraska he admits to tak
ing the team, and was identified as the
man by Mr. Cass'in, of IHiite Rock,
who traded horses with him, and who
came to Ilcd Cloud on purpose to iden
tify him. A gentleman by the name
of Richard Mayers had the wagon
when found. We presume that Cook
thought he would destroy all trace of
himself by disposing of his booty at
White Rock but his persistent enquiry
for St. Joe and other points along the
lino wove the web around him
which was to be the means that would
ultimately ensnare him. The Chiuf
believes that Cook should bo given a
fair trial by the courts, and if tonnd
guilty, should receive the estromo pon
alty of tho law, but deplores the false
idea now prevalent that the people
should take the case into their own
hands, as it is not right. Mob lav. is
now, as well as in times past, the in
strument that destroys the very bul
wark of well organized judicial institu
tions. The stern arm of the law should
be able to revenge such crimes and
protect the people. No law abiding
people should listen or give their influ
ence to motites which cause people to
take the law of the land into their own
hands. Once at Blue Hill the excite
ment crew intense, although it did not
appear in visible form until almost
train time, when it became evment
that some thing was upjis nearly ev
ery man had a revoIveryor fire arms of
some kind, which would lead one to
believe that they did not prop rose to
live up' to the part o'f the contract they
had made with Sheriff Warren? name
ly, to give the prisoner a chance for
trial. And right here-we mus, say that
Sheriff Warren and his deputies did
their best to protect the prisoner,but be
ing outnumbered had no earthly show
to cope with those who had decided
to take the law into theirjown hands.
The followiug are the tacts gained by
our reporter in regard to the mobbing
at Bine Hill:

Some 50 or 60 men made a bold dnsh
for the prisoner and by tho moi vio
lent efforts, a grand nourishing of re
volvets, and a severe tussle j-uccccded
in wresting him from the hands of the
officers, and chucked him into a coal
wagon, from which Deputy ShcrifiGoo
Ball succeeded in pulling him out, but
was again recapture! by the u.ob and
again thrown into the wagon which
was then driven rapidly out of town,
halting at a windmill on the farm of
Sol Mandellbaum, about one mile
from town. During ihe melee On the
streets deputies Geo. Dodd and M. W.
Dickerson, of this city, attempted to
pull a man off from the prisoner, but
only succeeded in pulling oil his coat
in tl e pocket of which a rope was
found. This rope being missed at the
windmill a halter was taken off from
one of the hordes, but this proving too
short for the purposes of the mob, a
clothes line was stolen and placed
around the neck of Cook. On being
asked if ho had anything to say ho re
plied that he had said all he had to
say. Again on being told that if he
had anything to say he wanted to say
it , 1 qviick, he merely replied
that he had nothing to say. Tho rope
was thrown over a beam or cros-pioce
and the victim hauled up some eight
een inches off tho ground, where he
hung about ten minutes. Deputy Ball
followed the mob and on his arrival
at tho mill attempted to cut tho rope
but was prevented from doing so. Shcr
1 fi Warren arrived a few momenta
later and cut the rope, amidst the cries
of 'don't cut him fown, let him
hang, the mob supposing their
victim to already be dead, made no
forcible resistance. Cook was taken
back to town more dead than alive,
where he was bled, and other means
used for his resuscitation. During the
night it took four men to hold him,
the frightful contortions and convul
sions through which he passed being
indescribably horrible. On Tuesday
morning he was brought to Bed Cloud
and again taken fo the Gardner House
where he is still lying in a pitiable con
dition, and has not as yet recovered
the use ot his leasoning faculties. If
he rccovera he will be tried for murder;
if convicted and again hanged he will
then have passed through the terribU
ordeal of two executions for bis crime.
The Chief regrets that the order lov
ing and law abiding citizens of Blue
Hill were unable to prevent the per-
petration of so shameful and horrible
an outrage a3 the one that took plaoe
in their midst on Monday- Mob laW,
the whipping post, and the guillotine;

grave and buried as relics cf the dark
