Posse After The Criminal-Trail Fal
lowed to Bridie at Franklin Where
It Is Abandoned-Houses In', the
Town ielnft Searched.
MINDEN, Neb., April 23. -Tho posse
which has been searching nil clay for
Hurt M. Taylor, the alleged usHailant
of the Taylor sisters, trailed a man
who i8 believed to be Taylor, to a
bridge near Franklin this afternoon,
where the trail wuh lost. The search
ers are returning to Minden tonight.
In the morning bloodhounds, which
will arrive from Lincoln tonight, will
be put on the trail of Taylor Tonight
about 100 men are searching the Iiouhcs
of this city to 11 ml Taylor in case he
has not escaped from here. Some
people still believe that the assailant
is in this eity and that the man traced
1o Franklin is not Taylor. A man
who hired a horse at a farm house ten
miles bouth of Minden thi- afternoon,
however, was identified as Taylor by
the fanner, lie rode off on the horse
toward Franklin and wa- traced to the
"bridge near that place.
The condition of l'earl Taylor, who
was seriously injured in the assault,
remains unchanged and little hope is
entertained for her recovery.
. Monday night licit M Taj lor as
saulted l'earl Taylor, his .seventeen-year-old
bister-in-law, assailed with
his lists and her sister, Ida, thirteen
years of age; set fire to their house
after leaving them, as he thought,
dead. He set fire to the house with a
view to etv ring up his heuious crime
and saving himself from punishment
for the worst outrage that has ever
bhaken this community.
The younger bister, in telling of the
horrible crime said that she and her
sister were awakened u little after
midnight by someone knocking on the
front door. When they asked who
was at the door, the reply came that it
was a crazy negro. That scared the
girls and they did not know what to
do. Suddenly the man burst in the
door and grabbed both of the girls by
the throat. He took l'earl, the older
one, into the kitchen and made her
younger sister stay in the sleeping
room. He stayed in the kitchen along
time, and when he returned to the
sleeping room, the younger girl could
hear her sister groaning.
The assailant told the younger girl
that her sister was dead and that he
had a good notion to kill himself. He
then beat the girl terribly four or live
times and she pretended that she was
deid. When he thought he had killed
the younger girl, he spread oil over
the lloor and set lire to the house. He
As soon as the assailant had gone
the young girl ran to the house of a
neighbor and told them of the crime.
The neighbors ran to the bouse and
managed to put the flames out before
they had made much headway. The
badly injured girl was removed to the
neighbor's house and medical aid sum
moned. The doctors worked over her
b it said they did not think she could
recover. At noon she was till un
conscious. As soon as the crime was made
known a posse went in search of the
criminal and they are now scouring
the country for him.
The two girls recognized their as
sailant as llert M. Taylor who has
lived irouml Minden for fifteen years.
He never was implicated in any crime
although he was a heavy drinker. He
worked nt the painting and paper
hanging trade. Though he had the
same name as the girls the only rela
tion he has to them is that he married
their eldest sister.
The two girls were IMng alone in
the house when the assault occurred,
while they were attending cehool in
Minden. They hnd not feared moles
tation from their brother-iu-hiw.
