TYPHOID FEVER. George Wolf , a
Beukelman liveryman , who came down
to the city , Wednesday of last weekin ,
an almost unconscious condition from
typhoid fever , died at the Central House
in this city , where he came to undergo
treatment , Tuesday. The mortal re
mains of the young man were laid away ,
"under the sod and the dew , to await
the judgment day , " in the cemetery near
the city , on Wednesday morning. Rev.
Wheeler of the M. E. church officiating.
The deceased man's partner was down
from Benkelman , last Friday , and as the
sick man was unconscious from the time
he arrived here and had over $75 in cash
in his pocket when he arrivedthe , partner
took occasion to inquire into the state
of the sick man's
finances. After care
ful search he was able to find but $20 ,
about $60 haviug been removed from
the unconscious man's clothing. The
scoundrel who would commit a theft un-
ler these circumstances would be capa
ble of any crime.

J. K. BARNES POST No. 207 The
Joseph K. Barnes Post No. ' 207 , De

Menard's Opera Hall , last Thursday
jvening , by Past Commander Bonnell
) f Lincoln , assisted by Department Com
mander Cole , and Adjutant General
Sliirley of Juniata , with 26 charter rnem-
jers. The following officers were elected
ind installed : J. A. Wilcox , Cominan-
ler , C. E. McPhersou , Senior Vice-Corn-
uandcr ; R. S. Cooley , Junior Vice-Com-
nander ; Geo. Iluggins , Chaplain : A.

Quarter Master Sergeant. The post
starts with a goodly number of members ,
ind under favorable auspices , and will

nent societies of our city.
For fine clothing call on E. M. Brick-
jy & Co.
The proposition will shortly be sub-
nitted to the patrons of School District
tfo. 1 , Red Willow precinct , to bond
: hat district in the sum of $700 , for the
purpose of securing funds to erect a
school building the district school hav-
ng hitherto been held in a rented build-
ng , and not a very desirable one at that.
Che district evidently needs a school
louse , and while bonding is not always
; he most desirable plan , in this case it
s evidently the most practicable one ,
tnd will probably receive the support of
hose who have children to educate , and
vho have a care as to attending circum
stances connected therewith conven-
ence , health , etc.

The trial of John Jones of the Mc-
Coofc Hotel on the charge of assault
upon the person of Lena llanna , an ig
norant German girl , with the attempt to
commit rapeoccupied the attention and
severely tested tho patience of Justice
Harmon Eaton of Driftwood precinct ,
last Friday , and called together a num
ber of the lords of creation to hear the
disgusting details of a most disgraceful
and outrageous assault. The only evi
dence offered was by the counsel for the
Commonwealth , in the person of the girl
heraelf , who though timid and ignorant ,
gave her testimony in as straight-for-
warduncquivocal a manner as a woman's
native delicacy would permit , and clear
ly proved , what Jones' counsel jocularly
admitted , an assault upon the person of
the ignorant aud unsophisticated Ger
man girl , who so lately arrived iu this
laud of the free and placed herself un
der the protection of our laws aud flag ,
where the virtue of our women is sup
posed to receive the protection of law
and of every chivalric , manly citizen.
While a TuimiNE representative was
present throughout the trial and noted
closely important evidence , we will not
punish an innocent public with'the dis
gusting details of a nasty case. The
counsel for the defense offered no testi
mony whatever , and simply moved the
Court to dismiss the case , on the plea of
lack of evidence to sustain the charge ,
and on this motion based their speeches.
It was noticeable , that the burden of the
defense's remarks were not. as is usual
ly the case in similar trials , to build up
a previous good character for the accus
ed , but the rather to acknowledge th'e
SUBSTANCE of the charge preferred , and
to attempt to exonerate their client on
the plea , that being an individual of
vigorous manhood ( ? ) he only did what
"ninety-nine out of every hundred
men ( ? ) would have done under similar
circumstances , " and in further assaying' '
to make it appear to the Court that , be
cause of some comparatively harmless
improprieties allowed by the girl because
of her ignorance of the import of such
attentions at the hands of an individual
of the stamp of Jones , the girl was evi
dently leading Jones on , that the wo
man was the palpable assailant. The
testimony clearly shows and it is not de
nied , that Jones made the assault , and
it simply remains for the jury to decide
as to how great violence upon the part
of the man , and how great resistance on
the part of the woman constitutes an
attempt at rape. THE TIUUUNE is of
opinion that a jury composed of men
who have wives and daughters to protect
against such assaults , will not be long
in deciding , and will punish men who
thus assail purity and innocence as they
richly deserve. Clear as the sun at noon
day it is , that the outcries aud resist
ance of the girl , however loud and how
ever vigorous , alone kept Jones from
accomplishing his damnable purpose ,
and his guilt remains. Justice Eaton
tvas not long in arriving at a verdict ,
ind Jones was promptly bound over to
the next term of District Court , which
sonvenes in November , and in default
af $1,000 bonds , was placed in the hands
jf Sheriff Welborn , and he is now board
ing at the expense of the county in the
Justice Eaton takes things coolmakes ,
liis decisions promptly and sustains them
ind the questionable methods , language
ind sentiment of some of the counsel
for defense , did not strengthen their
jase an iota. The Justice , not being
that kind of a man , failed utterly of
ippreeiation and rightly.
Chas. Tanner , the $100-and-cxpenscs
ittorney from Hastings , signally failed
: o convince the Court as to the GUILT
) f the girl. Says Mr. Tanner , after
aaking repeated use of the homely old
saw about the "Mountain laboring and
jringing forth a mole , " in a burst of
iranscendantly oratorical wind , "Para
lyzed be my tongue , and paralyzed be
: ny right arm , etc. , it * 1 ever say any-
; hing derogatory to woman , * ' and with
; he next breath stigmatizes with nn-
neasurcd severity the slightest impro
prieties allowed by the ignorant peasant.
L'anncr's standard of men and women
nay suit his own particular case , but
? ew will accept it.
