of the story is that ho had boon or was
going north of Lebanon to buy some
cattle and on tlio road met a man and
a boy driving tlioso cattle, tho man
claimed that bo was driving tlio cattle
to Republic county to feed but that ns
ho had heard that crops had boon des
troyed thcro by tho hot weather ho was
anxious to disposo of the cattlo. Fitcii
says that ho finally agreed to glvo the
man $31 each for them.
It was then agreed that Fitch drive
tho cattlo on to his farm and that the
man would go for his team and meet
Fitch in Esbon, nnd thore receive his
money. The preliminary examination
was set for last Monday, but during
tho absonco of County Attorney Over
man, who had gone for requisition
papors, and on tho advice of his attor
ney, Fitch waived examination and
was bound over to tho noxt term of
tho district court, which will be hold
in November. Fitch has boon in Esbon
for tho past few yoars and has borne
nn excollont imputation for fairness
and honesty in his dealings. Fitcii is
