WELL KNOWN NORFOLK ANIMALS
GO TO BLACK HILLS.
WERE BOUGHT BY A SHERIFF
Caesar and Betsy , Hounds Which Were
Owned Here by William Stein , Have
Been Sold to a South Dakota Officer
to Trace Criminals for $200.
Norfolk has lost its bloodhounds.
No more will telegraph or telephone
calls , from territory tributary to this
city , summon the brutes with sharp
noses and appetites for human blood.
Into service of trailing the fugitive
criminals. The two dogs , Caesar and
Betsy , owned by William Stein , have
been sold to the sheriff of I-awronce
county , South Dakota , up In the Black
Hills , and have already arrived nt that
point. The dogs were sold for some
thing over $ : > 00.
Dispatches from Deadwood state
that the two famous Norfolk dogs
have arrived and that It Is now hoped
the campaign of crime which has been
carried on In that territory for some
time , may be ended. The report says
that the Black Hills sheriff has great
faith In I ho dogs and he tells of their
last long run of 200 miles between
| Wakolleld and Wlnnetoon , trailing
liorsethleves. The Impression prevails -
vails In the Black Hills that tbo dogs
captured these thieves but this , of
course , IB untrue , although It was said
that tbe thieves were caught sight of
four times before they disappeared
Into the hills.
While the dogs bad made a number
of long runs In and around Norfolk , It
Is not known that they ever really
caught the criminals or caused a con
viction. Perhaps the unlquest bit of
trailing was done in connection with
the stealing of Dr. P. H. Sailor's horse
from Toft's grove some tlmo ago. The
dogs wore set on the trail and ran up
toward Pierce. The next day , while
the dogs were still tracing the thief ,
the horse was found In a barn to which
It had wandered.
The dogs were recently taken to :
Wakoflold to act In the safe blowing
Incident there but the thieves were
caught before the animals arrived.
They were several times put entrails
trails out of here , hunting horses , but
thi' thieves generally escaped. Not
long ago one team was stolen In the
west end of town. The dogs were tak [
en south of the river and the buggy
was found near the Insane hospital.
The selling of the dogs became a
good move for Mr. Stein when ho
moved recently from Norfolk to accept
a position In railway employ by way
of promotion.

Follls visited the jail yesterday morn
ing.
"Georgo Parker wants to know If
you got hurt over there a few weeks
ago , " remarked ono of them.
"Ob , you mean In that Springfield
affair , " replied Ray. "I'm all right
again. "

safe blowing and an attempt to es
cape from a poBsewlthshotguns.
capo from a posse with shotguns.
While Parker and Lynch , who are
In I jail at Ponca , charged with commit
ting the Wakoflold Job , have boon sus
pected of having been Implicated In
{
the Springfield robbery , Ray's confes-
nlon strongly confirms the theory of
the police.

count for Ray's mental aberration. At
|
times ho Is In mortal fear that the
other members of the gang are going
to "got him" for being a "stool pig
con. " Again ho craves for morphine
or any kind of dope.
"Just glvo mo a little dope , nn >
kind , " ho pleads. "I can snuff It , or
oat It , or take It any way. "
When ho gets an opiate he becomes
quiet for n while.

M'KILLIP ' TO OPPOSE M'CAHTHY ' ?
Lincoln Democrats Believe Mr. McKII-
lip Can Win Next Year.
Lincoln News : The talk of Patrick
McKllllp's aspirations for the demo
cratic governorship nomination next
year Is discounted by prominent dem
ocrats who are In close touch with the
wealthy and oratorical young follow
er of Bryan. McKlllIp Is more apt to
be a candidate against J. J. McCarthy
fc r congress In the Third district , they
say. McKlllIp baa ability nnd Is anx
ious to begin his congressional career
early , as a stepping stone to higher
honor. He made the race against Mc
Carthy last time and demonstrated his
prowess by making considerable gains
over his ticket. It Is alleged that ho
can defeat the republican candidate
when the latter Is without the aid of
Roosevelt's popularity. Those who
are close to the Humphrey banker say
that he also counts on some slight
sentiment against the third term prop
osition to aid him.
Politicians believe that there Is no
question that McCarthy will be the
third term nominee If nothing untow
ard occurs before the convention , the
doctrine of permanent employment in
congress having obtained a strong
hold on the members of the party in
that district. Last year McKlllIp lost
the district to McCarthy by 2,911 votes
In the face of the Roo.sevolt popular
wave. In 1902 Robinson , the fusion
candidate , backed by a united organi
zation of the democrats and populists ,
lost the district by CCO votes against
McCarthy. It is on such n statistical
showing that the democratic friends
of McKlllip base their hope that he
can land himself In congress.
Recent Interviews have cjuoted the
Humphrey man as saying that ho
wwultl prefer the Governorship to a
place In congress on account of the
smaller handicap under which ho
would labor at the start. Why ho
takes such an attitude Is not known ,
in view of tbo fact that ho is seeking
an opportunity to run against McCar
thy. The fact that some who know
