Neligh Boys Took Victory.
Nollgh high Hchool defeated the Nor
folk high school team hero Saturday
afternoon by a Hi-ore of 12 to 3. It
was all a one-sided game after the
fourth Inning , when the local players
Boomed to go to pieces and Bcemed at
the mercy of Nollgh , who outplayed
Norfolk all around. It was a fast and
exciting game for an even four innings
when the Bcoro stood 1 to 0 In favor
of Norfolk and the local fans Boomed
confident that Norfolk had a walk
away , when suddenly Nollgh socmed
to find the Holutlon of Kolloher's
cnrvoH and pounded the hall.
Kelloher pitched a good game but
his support wan bad both In the In and
outfield , where HOIIIU easy catches
wore either fumbled or dropped. Er
rors were also frequent on both Hides
and the heavy wind aided in carrying
the ball from the players' mitts. In
the fifth Inning Neligh brought In four
runs and added six more to that num
ber In the Hlxtli.
The feature of the game was the
wonderful work of Ryuii , the Neligh
second baseman , who stopped some
hot liners. Ho was all around the in
field and never let a ball go by. Leon
ard pitched a good game , but the Nor
folk lads found no trouble In hitting
him , though due to his good support
and the team work of the Neligh play
ers the Norfolk hits proved fruitless.

Foul Tips.
Ryan was too anxious to make a
double In the fifth and forgot tc
| , place his foot on the base before he
threw to first , where the runner made
' good and his victim stole third.
Hrlggs and the wind were chums ,
Mills bunt for a sacrifice filled the
j ( bases.
! In the fourth the Neligh batter whc
hit that high fly believing it was a
foul ball should have started running ,
Instead he twirled his bat and watch'
ed the ball hit the ground while the
umpire said "fair ball. "
I The yelling of the Norfolk fans
. at close range to the Neligh batters
, did not feaze those * gentlemen , whc
plugged away at the ball.
I Mapes made good at picking up tht
I hot ones but often threw too low tc
first base where Durland held dowr
i the bag with much credit to himself
Umpire Howe's first job of the sen
son was ably officiated and there
wasn't a solitary threat heard againsi

The warrant for his arrest was
sworn out by C. F. Fuller of this city ,
who had lost a tool chest containing
perhaps $70 or $100 worth of tools.
They were found on his place and re
turned to the owner. It was upon
this count that he was brought to
town and arraigned before Judge Ed-
elsteln and was bound over to the cir
cuit court under $500 bonds. Ho Is
now In the custody of the ofllcers.

At 7:30 : o'clock this morning Charle

down from his little studio on the to

want me to say ? "
It was still BO dark In the hall that
the reporter couldn't see what he
looked like when he said this , but the
Interviewer gathered from his tone
that he was not very close.
"Well , how long have you been en
gaged ? " the reporter asked.
Mr. Rumsoy removed his glasses
slowly , wljied an imaginary speck of
dust from them , adjusted them again
slowly and replied :
"Not very long. "
"One year ? "
"About six months , " ho finally ad
"And how did you meet Miss Harrl-

Again the glasses needed attention.
"And when are you going to get marled -

"Oh , just as soon as 1 possibly can , "

Hy this time ho was on the front

He laughed.

In answer to another question , Mr.

hem steel works at South Bethlehem ,
Pa. , as set forth in the bureau of la
bor , recently sent to congress , are
more or less common throughout the
entire steel Industry , according to a
statement Issued by Dr. Charles P.
Nelll , commissioner of labor. He re
ferred to the conditions in the blast
furnaces as shocking. This announce
ment was brought forth by a protest
made to Secretary of Commerce and
Labor Nagel and Commissioner Nelll
by President Charles M. Schwab and
other representatives of the BethlO'
hem steel works regarding the sum'
niary issued by the bureau of labor ol
the report of its agents on wages and
working conditions at the steel plants ,
Mr. Schwab complained that the sum
mary was unfair to his company In
failing to state that conditions found
at the Bethlehem steel works were not
peculiar to that plant , but were general

So He Bought the Potatoes.
Gordon , Neb. , May 1G. SpoelnfTo
The News : A man representing him
self to bo a salesman for Hnller com
pany of Philadelphia and Omaha , has
relieved the farmers minds of the
problem of disposing of their last
year's crop of potatoes and likewise
relieved their pocKetbooks and neg

On Wednesday , April 13 , a man
named Leroy V. Hallor accompanied
by his wife and a man named Thomas ,
registered for board at the Commer

During the day , however , he learned
that farmers bad not sold all of their
last year's crop of potatoes. So ho

A brief history of the case is as
follows :
Albert G. Brown was found murder
ed In his cellar on the 8th day ol
December last , with an axe found
beside the lifeless body and his head
crushed In at three distinct places.
The coroner , W. F. Conwell , Sherlfl
Miller and County Attorney Rice ol
this city wont over to the village ol
Brunswick on the morning of the 9tl
day of December and held an In
quest upon the body. Suspicion al
that time was strongly upon Joe Me
Kay as being the murderer , and aftei
the Inquest he was arrested by the
county sheriff.
Find Money at McKay's.
The county attorney and a mimbei
of the prominent citizens of the vll
lage of Brunswick went to the rest
donee of the defendant that aftornooi
and made a search of tno house
They therein found a pockethook con
tnlnlng $20 In bills , which wan hlddei
awny In a boxful of clothes. Mrs
McKay was questioned about tin
purse and money and told several con
Hiding stories as tp how It came t (

To the sheriff and county attorne ;
on the night of Thursday. December
9 , when the accused was placed in
the county Jail and questioned in re
gard to the money found , ho told an
entirely different story than hud been
previously told by Mrs. McKay to the
Late the next day , Friday , Decem
ber 10 , the county attorney received
word from Brunswick that the mur
dered man's keys had leen found hid
den away In some hay In his barn ,
and that other elreuniHtaneoH were
being dlHcovered which disclosed a
motive for the murder of Brown.
The county attorney thereupon
started for Brunswick that night and
re m til tied the next day lu running
down all circumstances which would
tend to disclose the assassin Ho at
that time put the wife of the ac
cused through a searching examina
tion , and she denied that her lumbaml
had been on the Brown premises at
all for more than a month , and claim
ed that ho had not arisen on the
morning of the 7th day of December ,
till about the hour of S o'clock.
Say Hog was Brown's.
It was also discovered , the state
claimed , that the hog which had been
on the Brown premises up to the
morning of December 7 , and which
McKay had sold and taken away on
the morning of the 7th. was In reality
the property of Brown , the murdered
The preliminary In the case was
held before Justice John M. McAllis
ter , at Nellgli , on Monday , the 21st
day of December , at the conclusion of
which McKay was held to the charge
of murdering Brown to the next term
of the district court without ball.
The relatives of the deceased had
employed M. F. Harrington of O'Neill
to assist the prosecution and the de
fense secured the services of O. A.
Williams of this city and Senator Al
len of Madison.
On Monday , May 2 , the case was
called for trial. And after nearly two
days a jury was secured and sworn
in. It was then that Senator Allen
moved to discharge the accused be
cause of a clerical error In the infer
mation. The motion being overruled
by the court and the prosecution per
mitted to amend the Information. The
trial then proceeded.
The state took the testimony of
about fifty witnesses and forged a
powerful chain of circumstantial evi
dence connecting the accused with
the crime. The summary of the most
important points of this great mass
of circumstantial evidence Is as fol
lows :
The Chain of Evidence.
That the person of Albert G. Brown
was alive about the hour of G o'clock
on the morning of Tuesday , Decem
ber 7. This being the morning that
the defendant had taken the hog from

state showed that a heavy snow bad
fallen on Monday night , December G ,
that amounted to three or four Inches ,
ind that on Wednesday afternoon the
parties who found the body of Brown
in his cellar , could see his tracks in
this snow where he had been about
during the early hours on Tuesday
morning doing his chores.
A pan full of ashes had been emp
tied on top of this snow ; where he had
dug through the snow in the coal box
to get fuel for the lire ; and that the
body when discovered was fully
dressed , Including overshoes and cap.
The examination of the finding of
the body of Mr. Brown disclosed the
fact that his pockets had been rilled.
It was shown by the evidence that the
murdered man had always carried
large sums of money upon his person ,
as he was afraid of banks.

home , and In the same block , that she
had seen smoke issuing from the

the Brown chimney at about 0:30 : on
Tuesday morning. The state showed
by an eye witness , William Woolley ,
that McKay came from the rear end
of the Brown house at about 7 o'clock
that morning , and instead of coming
around and out of the front gate , he
had gone directly north through snow
drifts that were hip deep , and across
the fence on the north of the premises
into the street. Upon seeing Woolley
the defendant told him ho had been
over feeding his hog. Ho had no has'
ket or pail In his hand at this time
The state showed by the party that
had bought the hog from McKay and
the two assistants who went with him
that they went to the Brown hog shed

the hog , that the snow about the hog
shed door plainly showed that the dooi

Spencer Advocate : The Holt coun

Anton Prusa , H. D. Slovcst and Sup
ervisors Long , Danker , Hasche , Drown
Post and Anderson of Boyd county
met hero and drove out to Inspect the
Whiting bridge last week. There was
some talk of moving the bridge up
the river to Dodgo'H ferry but after
a thorough Investigation the boards
decided they would leave well enough
alone and not stir up any feeling with
the people on both sides of the river.
Where this removal idea originated
we are unable to state , but was Inform
ed by one of the Holt county supervis
ors that they knew nothing of such
a move until they arrived over here.
Such an Idea Is not practicable at all.
The Whiting bridge has stood the
test , Is on a direct road between hero
and O'Neill nuil accommodates more
farmers than a bridge at any ether
point would. The board drove up the
river to the Parshall crossing where
it Is likely a new bridge will be lo
cated. They need a bridge In the
west end of the county and It is to
be hoped one will be built as soon as
the funds will justify such a largo ex
