HASTINGS , Neb. , Aug. 21. Word
comes to Hastings that Miss Bertha
Horlocker , who is resting under a
$5,000 bond charged with having at
tempted to take the life of Mrs. Charles
F. Morey by sending her a box of poi
soned candy on the 10th day of last
April , is now in an insane asylum at
Jacksonville , 111.
About two months ago Miss Kor-
locker went to New York City to visit
her sister and recuperate , but it was

ter which she was to have been bound
over to the jury term of the disMct

feeling here that Miss Horlocker will
be adjudged insane and this celebrated
case will thus be brought to a close.

Sebastian Faure and Baberot , well
known revolutionary anarchists , were
the ringleaders. Faure , standing on
the pedestal of the statue which rises
in the center of the Place de la Repub
lique , addressed the crowd. Among
other things he said that the anarchists
should be masters of the streets. The
police then Interfered and dislodged
Faure and Faberot , making three ar
rests. The crowd at this point dis
persed , but a column of demonstrators ,
headed by Faure and Henri d'Horr ,
made for the Place de la Nation.
The police broke through the column
and a struggle for the mastery
followed. Shots were fired and M.
Goulller , commisary of police , was
twice stabbed with a knife.
This threw the police Into momen
tary confusion. The mob reassembled
and ran toward the Place de la Na
tion. The police , reinforced by a squad
that had been held In reserve , made
another attempt to stem the current
and fresh , fierce fighting occurred ,
three constables being wounded. Faure
and d'Horr jumped into a pasing street
car that was going to the Place de la
Republique and the car driver on ar
riving there gave a signal to the police ,
who immediately arrested them both ,
together with two other anarchists ,
Joseph Ferrler and Jeon P rrin.
All were conveyed to the Chateau
d'Eau barracks. Only d'Horr wag
found in possession of firearms.

Most of this was brought out of the
