A Bad Mix-Up Occurred In
Norfolk Avenue.
HE USED HIS CLUB SEVERELY.
C. W. Mlhllls , Cab Driver , Was
Knocked Down Three Times by Carl
Pllger Wouldn't Stand for Abusive
Language The Stories.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
C.V. . Mlhllls , a cab driver well
Itnown ih Norfolk , lies pretty badly
wounded about the head as a result
of a mix-up which took place in front
of the Oxnard hotel last night. The
pounds are from the bllllo of Night
Vatclunan Carl Pllger.
The stories given by the two men
vary a llttlo , but on the whole they
coincide pretty well. The trouble
scorns to have started when Pllgor
Stopped the cab and unhooked one of
-tho tags. There wore several mon in
the cab who had scon the trouble on
"Wednesday night and who made
caustic remarks at the policeman for
his conduct upon that occasion. Ho
resented .it and when the carriage
, started away , told the driver to stop.
Ho wanted to arrest one of the occu
pants , Mihllls stoppQd shprt and Pil-
ger unhooked a tug. This angered
Mlhllls and ho got down from his box ,
rOhookOd the strap and proceeded to
toll Pllger exactly what ho thought of
anyone who would unharness his
horse. "I have driven a hack for ton
years , " he said , "and no one has
ever yet done that. " Words followed
Mihllls grabbed the policeman's up
held hand , Pllger made a swing with
his club , the cabman drew back and
was sent , an instant later , to the
.ground with a stunning blow upon the
head. He got up , was dizzy , started
lor Pilger and received another blow
that felled him. Again ho struggled
his feet , made for the policeman
and a third time was knocked down.
.As" ho got up this time one of his
.friends held him away and Pllger
-walked away.
The man in the cab who was to
liavo been arrested was not taken nor
was Mihills arrested then. A war
rant will be sworn out today against
him. "I saw , " explained the watch
man this morning , "that to take him
would be to knock him senseless 'and
"beat him all the way to the jail , so I
let him go. "
PI Igor's Story.
Pilger tells it in this way : "To
begin with , I'l knock the block off of
every man that gets sassy. I won't
stand for any abusive language. Mi-
hills had been hollering in front of
the Oxnard. I told him , tvith these
other fellows , to keep quiet. Ho came
at me abusively and I let It go. Ho
started off with a half dozen travel
ing men in the cab and they made
cutting remarks. I wouldn't stand
for It. I stopped the hack and tried
to find which ono had spoken. I un
hooked a tug. The fellow r thought
it was , denied that he had said any
thing. Mihills came at me and said
that ho allowed nq one to meddle
with his friends and would whip any
one who did. Ho grabbed my left
hand and when I made a motion with
the club , he let go to strike mo. Before -
fore ho did , I nailed him and knocked
t
him down three times with the club.
I didn't arrest him then because I
saw that it would mean knocking him
senseless and fighting him all the way
to the jail. Today I will swear out a
warrant.
"For years they have abused the
nlghtwatch. I won't stand for it.
When I tell a man to shut up , he'll
shut up. I won't make any allowance
.for booze. "
Mlhill's Story.
"I've driven a hack for ten years , "
said Mihills' as he lay on a bed this
morning. "The boys were sere at
Pllger on account of the other night ,
and they joshed him. I didn't hear
what they said. My idea was to get
away fast and avoid trouble. He
rushed up 'and put his gun in my face ,
calling to stop.I stopped short and
he unhooked the tug. I got down ,
hooked it up again and told him
'
what I thought of him. I didn't think
I made a motion to strike him. He
struck md with the club three tlmos
and when I got up I was dizzy. Na
turally , I wanted revenge after he had
struck me. I didn't strike him once.
If he had talked to me I would not
Hiave done anything. I have never had
trouble in Norfolk before , and have
driven a cab ten years. It was just
the same as Wednesday night , when
lie struck John Snick without provo
cation. He didn't say I was under
arrest nor did ho .arrest me after
wards. "
Mlhllls' head , on cither side , is cut ,
his eyes are bruised and his knee
"hurt.
Most Beautiful Valley.
A trdmp printer floated Into the don
of the editor of thoWisner Free Press
during ono of the smothering rain
storms that were making Nebraska
famous a month or so ago. After dry
ing himself by the editorial stove ,
and warming his insides with Free
Press vltuals , ho sat down and wrote
the following : "Thoro Is no state In
the union throughout which the writer
has traveled that has moro pictur
esque rural beauty than Nebraska. My

WIDOWS BY THE CAR LOAD ,
Coming In From Iowa to Flic on
Range Land In Western Nebraska
Counties for Cattlemen.
( From TucBdny'8 Dally. ]
The attempt to discourage the prac-
tlco of cAttlornon in enlisting the ser
vices of soldiers' widows toward ac
cumulating largo slices of Undo
Sam's domain does not appear to have
had any very positive effect according
to the following special from Rush-
vlllo :
The letter of Commissioner J. II.
Flniplo , holding that the widows of
deceased soldiers or sailors filing on
the public domain under section 2307 ,
United States revised statutes , must
in good faith establish and maintain
actual rcsldcnco upon.tho claim and
without this a title cannot bo pro
cured from the United States , has
sot a number of the local boomers to
thinking.
Hundreds of soldiers' widows , who
have never seen the lands filed , upli ,
have placed tholr homestead entries
upon lands in this county and given
an agent a five-year lease , with a
power of attorney to sell the lands as
soon as final proof is mado. This
state and Iowa have been canvassed
for widows and this spring they have
been shipped to this place from Ham
burg , la. , by the carload. '
All of their expenses are paid and
promises of a dividend are hold out
to them at the expiration of five
years , but the local agent , with an
assistant that operates at the other
end of the line , pockets the moneys
left after paying transportation of
widows and their board. The moneys
arc furnished by ranchmen who are
desirous of continuing their largo
ranges after the government has re
moved their Illegal fences.
WOULD HAVE KNOCKED MUCH ,
If Pavement Had Been Laid , Shoe-
men Weld Have Set Up a Con
stant Rapping.
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
"If Norfolk had decided to pave , "
said a shoemaker today , In speaking
of the hard street proposition , "It
would have kept our llttlo hammers
going pretty fast from morning until
night. I don't mean that we , as a
body of tradesmen , would have
"knocked"on account of the sufaced
avenues that Is wo wouldn't have'
knocked In the ordinary moaning of
the term. The rapping we would
have done would have been the kind
brought about through Industry and
business. With pavo.il streets , in
other words , the shoemaker wouM
have been kept busy putting on half
soles and patching up holes in the
leather and tacking on new heels
after they had b'een once worn off.
"You see pavement is very harden
on solo leather. People who tramp
around on brick all day long , week in
and week out , wear many more shoes
than those who trod upon Mother
Earth. It is thca that you got the
gait of the or.tlnuty Individual , and
the extiaordlnary as well. Yoii can
toll from the shape of their heels Just
exactly how bow-legged they are , or
whether they are at all or not.
"Wo didn't vote the paving bonds ,
but if we had , it would have meant
something doing for the shooman's
awl. "
"How's that ? " was questioned.
"That's awl , ' ! said the shoeman.
FRAMES ON FEDERAL BUILDING ,
Work on the Building From This on
Will Go Very Rapidly , Say
the Officials.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
Work at the government building
is beginning to loom up. A frame
work of the iron trusses now stands
high in the air , all ready to support
the second story of the structure.
The delay in Iron has made the
chances for getting the building
finished by the first of the year , less
favorable , but Superintendent Will
iams thinks that If there are no moro
slow drags on the material , ho will
with a good force of laborers , yet
have the now postoffice ready to send
out letters by the beginning of Jan
uary. The work from now on will
go very rapidly.

Held for Them Tomorrow MornIng -
Ing at the High School.

F. A. Gotch Takes Four Falls
in 32 Minutes ,
MET 80NNEN8CHEIN AND DWYER
A Crowd of Something Less Than 100
Persons Assembled In Armory Hall
for the Fun Gotch Will Meet
World's Champion Soon ,
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
In a fast llttlo match of catchas-
catch-can wrestling Saturday night ,
F. A. Gotch , who was booked for the
tournament , made four falls with
local wrestlers In 32 ! HO minutes , the
limit alowcd being an hour. Herman
Sonnonscholn and Frank Dwyer were
the local athletes WHO wont up
against the speedy Gotch. The sport
was hold In Armory hall ,
The first fall obtained by the visitor
was with Dwyer in 12 minutes , ( Int.
This was a superb contest in which
cleverness and science were brought
prominently out. In the next , Gotch
throw Sonnohschcln in 7:50. : This
was an equally pretty match. Then
Dwyer went down in C : CO and' Sonnoiv
fichcln in 5:50 : , making the actual
time in all 32:30. :
A crowd of something less than 100
persons gathered for the fun In
Armory hall. The match startotl at
11 o'clock and was finished at 'about
1. Afterward. a bit of clover boxing
was put on , among local handlera bf
the gloves.
Gotch Is great at the work. Ho
weighs about 210 pounds and is light
as a fox on his feet. He. stayed with
the world's champion , Jenkins , for
two hours and Is matched against him
for another date this fall , so that Nor
folk sportsmen had an opportunity to
see something out of the ordinary.
Sonncnschcln and Dwycr wera both
good. Without systematic training
they did wonderfully well to hold the
champion for over a half hour , actual
wrestling.
After the match , Gotch challenged
anyone In the city , except Sonnon
scholn or Dwyer , to a match In which
ho would bring a fall within three
minutes. Ho was not taken.
It was the best match at wrestling
yet seen In Norfolk and the crowd
was universally pleased with the
event.

scheln to a wrestling bout , two out
of three , catch-as-catch-can , for $100

Team Won $116.
The Fremont running team brought
back fl5 In prize money from the
state firemen's tournament , which is
a fairly good showing though it did
not win the championship. Members
and friends of the team say that It
had to work against the officials as
well an the other teams on the first
day , when two of the timers were
mon from York. There Is nome ( lit-
foronco of opinion with regard to the
Judgment and tlmo announced lit the
championship race , but as Fremont IH

STANTON WELCOMES VICTORS ,
Fire L.iddlcs Who Took the Cham *
plonshlp Dolt and Other Trophies
Given Cordial Reception.
( from Momlny'n Dally , ]
The Stanton running team which
carried homo the championship bolt
in the regulation honu race during the
state firemen's tournament was glvon
a cordial and noisy dumonntratlon
when It reached homo Saturday noon.
A report of the proceedings ways :
"Thoro were banners giving each
race won , the tlmo made and the
ftSjouiit that the state record wan
lowered. Tholr follow firefighters
were out in uniform and with cart
decorated for tlio occasion. There
was a brass band , flftgfl and giant
Qraokors. The crowd of several hun
dred citizens also contributed to the
noise.
"Tho laddled were place * ! In car
riages and driven over the town under
escort , finally stopping at a prominent

speakers' stand had been erected.
Mayor Schlndler welcomed the con-
auercra and presented them with the
key to the city. Chief Al Marks waa
carried to the platform amidst tumult
uous applause and responded In a
modest fashion , giving most of the
credit to the boys who so gallantly
obeyed his commands and responded
to hla training. Other speakers and
music folowedi"
Norfolk's neighboring city on the
east has a team of racing firemen of
which It as well as all the surround
ing country may well bo proud , and
if the team is a fair sample of the
material of which the department Is
constituted the town has an organiza
tion that would bo an honor to a city
of many times the slzo of Stanton.
They are not only swift on tholr feet
but perfect gentlemen and they have
a chief who may bo destined to break
world records ns well as those of
tho'state because It Is said by those
who have seen him do It that ho Is-
a llttlo the swlftuBt and slickest at
malting a coupling of anyone the
* , vorid can produce.
The running team Is strictly a matter -
tor of local pride. There are no Im
ported professionals among them.
Ten of the thirteen members were
born In Stanton. All but Chief Marks"
grew from childhood there and Mr.
Marks has made Stanton MB homo
for the past seven years , refusing
flattering Inducements to go to other
and larger towns because ho liked
Stanton and desired no other place
for a home.
Their record at the tournament
was highly commendable. Three
records were broken and they carried
away more of the money that had
been offered for purses by the people
ple of Norfolk than any other team
attending thetournament. .
The boys deserved an enthusiastic
reception and the people of Norfolk
and other neighboring towns are
pleased to know that they got it.
The record made may bo taken as
assurance that the Stanton * team will
endeavor to hold that bolt for the
coming two years which will entitle
t to permanent possession , such as
Fremont sought this year.

years and listened to the fine talent
that the programs offered.

meet in the now location this season.
The grounds are admirable for their
purpose , exceeding even the Lincoln
Park grounds formerly used by the
assembly in suitableness for camping
and assembly purposes. Permanent
