85nil Found Guilty.
After one of the hardest contest
ed cases in the history &j& North-
ivest ( Nebraska , Fred Mans was
Pound guilty of murder in the second
end , degree by the jury before
ivhom he was tried. Nearly a
iveek was consumed in the trial of
he case and the verdict of thft jury
vas reached too late Saturday
light ; to permit the court to pro-
iced further. It is understood
ihat the defense will file a motion
'or a new trial which will not be
icard by the court until next week ,
vhen it will be acted upon and if
lenied sentence will be pronounced.
No prediction can safely be made
this time what the sentence will
, but on account of the serious-
icss of the offense it is believed he
A'ill get a life sentence. This pa- S %
er has from time to time called
hc attention of its readers , to the '
eculiar circumstances surround-
ng this case , and it has laid spec-
' stress upon the two questions :
'Why was flans in Ainsworth i
just at that particular time , " and
"Why did he want to serve that
warrant ? " The evidence shows
had not been deputixed by any-
3ody to serve the warrant and that
signed the warrant as Deputy
United States Field Marshal. The
'act that Hans had a commission
act as a deputy marshal gave no
uithority to arrest any man on a
warrant from any state court.
It was not upon this contention
.lowever that he was tried , but on
the theory that he killed Luse as
he result of a plot to remove him
rom the community and that he
the job for pay.
Mr. Hans was ably defended and
ivhile the prosecution was able and
rigorous it was handicapped by the
tact that the defence failed to place
jpon the witness stand several of
he parties who were associated
vith Hans in the work of fixing
evidence upon which to get a
warrant for Luse's arrest.
. The jury before whomllaLS wab
ricd was no ordinary body of men
juries go. They were serious ,
houghtful men , and the close at-
eution they gave to every detail
the ca o was commented on by
. The fact is , the demands for
impartial trial are met , and the
people would have been satisfied
vith the result no matter what the
rerdictof the jury had been.
