been so terrlflc In Its effect.

MAN ACCUSED OF STRIKING OL-
LIE CAGLE OF PIERCE.
HE WILL MAKE NO STATEMENT
"If You Want to Know Whether or
Not I Deny That I Hit That Man , "
Says Scott , "You'll Have to Walt
Till the Trial Comes Off. "
[ From Saturday' * Pally. ]
Handcuffed nnd In charge of Chief
of Police Martin Kane , Joseph Scott
of York , n member of the champion
running team , accused of striking Ol
lle Cagle on the last rough night of
the Nebraska state tournament , was
brought back to Norfolk last night
to stand trial. If Cagle should die the
charge will bo for murder. What It
will be should Cnglo recover has not
yet been determined.
Scott Is now locked up in the city
jail here. Ho Is rather sullen about
his arrest. He has little to say.
Asked as to what defense he would
make nt his hearing , ho snapped
back , In a surly way , "Well , If you
want to know that you'll have to wait
till the time comes. "
"Will you deny that you struck Ca
gle ? " was questioned.
"I will not say , " said he.
Kane Sure of Man.
Chief Kane Is positive In his own
mind that Scott is the right man. He
says that two eye witnesses on the
York team , who stood by and saw
the whole affair , assured him that he
had the right man and said that they
would testify to that If subpoenled.
On the train Scott , when mention
was made of the matter , said , "I'd
rather not talk about It. "
Story of the Capture.
Scott was found in bed at his home.
He was completely surprised when
the officers arrived. He had not been
reading the papers and therefore did
not know that the Pierce man was
dangerously hurt. If he had been a
reading man he might have secvired
his liberty. Investments In dally pa
pers often give returns In more ways
Accompanied by the York county
sheriff , Chief Kane went to the home
of Scott in North York. The sheriff
knocked. Scott opened the door.
Kane entered nnd read the warrant.
For the first time the possibility that
he might be a murderer , suddenly
came over Scott. He turned as pale
an a sheet. He was "all in. "
Locked in jail that night , he was
taken back home yesterday morning
to get a change of clothing. His wife
shrieked and moaned. She was hys
"I'll have to go back to Norfolk for
hitting that man , " said Scott to his
wife , departing.
Put In Irons.
Leaving York , the prisoner was put
In handcuffs. He resented this. "I
would rather have a bullet In my head
th'an leave York In Irons , " he said.
But In irons he left York for all of
On the train the handcuffs were re
moved. At Fremont again they were
locked around the wrists. On the
train again they were removed and
the prisoner slept. When Norfolk
was reached , the fellow was taken In
a cab to the city jail and locked In.
An immense mob , who had read the
evening paper , awaited with curious
eyes the coming of Scott. A little
later he was given supper.
His brother-in-law , W. W. Walt of
York accompanies Scott. He Is here
to get the young man back home on
ball , If possible.
"What will your defense be ? " was
asked of Walt.
Will Have to Prove.
"They will have to prove that Scott
did the striking. " he said. "I don't
know whether he did or not. I have
not asked him. But several men In
York told me he was not the man.
Several others said he was. "
York attorneys will be here by
Thursday to defend Scott.
Kane worked on a foundation of lit
tle fact and landed his man In quick
time. He left Norfolk with no more
evidence than had been gathered by
"All that I knew , " said the chief ,
"when I left Norfolk , was what The
News had found out for me. The ev
idence gathered by your representa
tive at Madison and here was the
best and only definite clew I had. I
was up against a serious proposition.
I didn't know but that the assailant
might be a professional , who had long
since' returned to an eastern home.
I built railroads from Omaha to New
York In my imagination. "
At Fremont the officer , in citizen's
garb , made a lucky strike. As he sat
In the station , a stranger asked him
where ho was from. "From Norfolk , "
"So ? " said the stranger. "I under
stand a fellow named Scott , on the
York team , struck a fellow in Nor
folk pretty hard. "
Kane said nothing. When ho got
off the train In York night before last ,
in the darkness , he met the sheriff ,
and asked for Scott. The sheriff had
heard a little of the affair and there
seemed to be no doubt as to the per
son. They all said it was Scott.
And within an hour Scott was in
Scott is a young man , comparative
ly. He is perhaps twenty-nine. He Is
not tail , but he is well built
Blow Under Chin.
An eye witness to the event at
York told Kane that the blow from
which Caglo suffers , was tsruck under
the chin ,
"Scott was not the first , man In
front of Cngle , " nays the eye witness ,
according to Kane. "Ho wns the sec
ond. Ho struck a blow under the
chin , from which Cagle went straight
up In the air , falling on the cement
walk , striking upon the top of his
