Another chapter In the tragedy of
I.oulrt Aultmiin was ulosod today when
tin ) roinnliiH of the dead man wore
taken from Noifolt ! _ to Omaha by his
father , for burial tbero In a Joxvlsh
cemetpry. Having been taken from
the tomb In Prospect Hill cemetery
yesterday afternoon , the body of the
young man who had been shot nnd
killed In an effort to oacapo from Po
liceman Pllgor four weeks ago , r -
malncd In the undertaking ctnhllHh-
mont of Hesalona A Doll over night
and taken east on the early North-

of lloston , the mourning parent.

It WIIH a pathotlo Incident that oc-
uurrcd yesterday afternoon wlicn Sum
Aultmiin , the father looked upon the
face of his dead boy. It waa the first
tlmo he had looked upon those fea
tures since the young man , big and
strong and healthy , had loft Iloaton
two months ago to got "work" from
which ho might acud back money from
time to tlmo to aid In the caring for
that father and the smaller children.
In the meantime Louis Aultman , the
boy , had boon In lloncsteol with the
gang , had come to Norfolk , been
caught with a stolen grip and arrest
ed , ho had trlod to escape , had been
shot , had dlod from the bullet and
had boon burled In a grave at Pros
poet Hill cemetery ,
Having Inln In hln tomb for n llttlo
more thnn three weeks , the body was
yesterday dug up nnd the casket
opened thnt the old father might once
again , before llnnl burial , HOO his son ,
Louis , At the undertaking establish
ment the lid was taken off nnd the

lie \va.s young nnd strong and had a
future before him. I am old and have
lived my llfo. And that IH surely ho. "
Owing to modern science , the body
had kept In splendid nhapo and the
face , llko that of a calmly , peacefully
sleeping man , rested In Its eternal
pillow. A few tiny spots of earth had
crept In upon his clothing , but that
was all there was to Indicate that the
remains had for almost a month , night
and day , lain beneath the surface of
the ground , six feet deep In a grave.

"I will prosecute this case If It
takes the rest of my llfo to do It , "
said Sam Aultman , the father , yester
day afternoon. "I think that an at
torney will como to Norfolk from
Omaha after the Jewish holidays , and
If none docs , I will keep at It If I
have to got a lawyer from Washing
ton to do It. 1 will fight the case If
It takes the next tlvo years. "
Until a now charge Is tiled against
Olllcor Carl 1'llgor , If a now charge
shall bo Hied , there will probably bo
no now developments regarding the
killing of t.ouls Aultman. The shootIng -
Ing occurred on the llrst morning of
the Nebraska state Dromon's tourna
ment in this city when Aultman ar
rived from Honestool , stole a grip
from Dan Dee and dived out of a second
end story window to escape the olll
cor. The olllcor , having called a halt ,
tired a fatal bullet through his back.
Young Aultman was as handsome a
man ns ever came to town. Not es
pecially tall , ho was as broad shoul
dered as a circus acrobat and power
ful. Ills face was clear cut , his teeth
white ns Ivory , his hair obony-black
and slightly curly. Ills skin was
clear. In all of his Illness he was a
perfect gentleman , never once using
an oath , never making an error In his
grammar. Ho had formerly boon , his
father says , a hand In a slioo factory
and was called out by a strike. The
strike Is still on. Ho sent homo n
check every Monday morning , amount
ing to $ r > or more.
The father Is small of stature , seri
ous and grieved ever the son. Ho Is
honest , apparently , to a degree. His
hands are the hands of a slave In toll ,

calloused by the labor upon the cob-

The eyes of North Nebraska Meth
odists will bo attracted toward
Wayne for six days from September
14 , an there Is where the annual con-
iVrenco of the church IH to bo held
and much Interest Is always centered
In these annual gatherings that have
much to do with the future of the
ministers and of the churches of the
conference , lllshop Joyce of .Minne
apolis Is assigned to preside at the
conference and with the bishop will
rest the matter of disposing of the
ministers who servo In North Nebras
ka and to him the different churches
will have to look for a return of tholr
favorites or to get rid of a minister
who has not proven popular. While
the bishop has the sola power to
make appointments. It Is conceded
that the presiding older , the ministers
and the lay workers know more of
the conditions In the various parts of
the conference than ho and tholr ad-
vlco nnd recommendations are always
welcome and frequently naked and
usually govern In recent years of
In the North Nebraska conference
there are at present about 135 minis
ters nnd as many charges , and at
each annual conference tnere are new
members admitted. . It Is believed
that there will be an unusually largo
number of changes made at this con
ference , preliminary events seeming
to lead to that conclusion , but more
Intel est Is expected to attach to the
conference of next year when the
terms of a number of presiding el
ders will expire.
It Is sold that Dr , u. K. Tyndall ,
formerly n well , known and popular
minister of the conference , expects to
return this year and ask an appoint
ment to be In position for the race
for one of the presiding elder post-
tlons next year. Ho Is at present In
Montana , and as a minister there
could not bo expected to become a
candidate for one of the best posi
tions In North Nebraska , but after a
year's service In n north Nebraska ap
pointment would bo accredited as a
resident of the conference and In
line for promotion with the other
ministers of the conference Dr. J
W. Shlnk , formerly editor of the
Omaha Christian Advocate , but at
present located In California , Is an
other who Is said to be attracted No-
braskaward by the prospects of a
presiding eldership. The present pre
siding elders are Dr. F. M. SIsson , of
this city , of the Norfolk district ; Dr
J. W. Jennings , of Omaha , for the
Omaha district ; Pr. Wm. Gorst , of
Neltgh , of the Nellgh district , and Dr.

All but one , Dr. Mlllnrd , have lived
In Norfolk , either In their capacity
as presiding older or as pastor of the
church bore , and the Methodists hero
are pleased to regard Norfolk ns of
some considerable Importance when
It comes to the choice of presiding el
ders , nnd wore It not for losing a
very excellent pastor , might be In
clined to look upon Hov. J. F. Poucher
of this city as a prospective candidate
for one of the presiding elderships.
