Last Thursday, CoasUble Ed Rosaitsr
brought down Abe Larue, Mike Kush
and if ike Sak, who live south of Genoa
in Platte county, on a warrant charging
them with cattle stealing, the complaint
being made by Arnold Oerber. It seems
that Gerber who hid some cattle in a
pasture belonging to Martin Kargas,
which is located near where these people
live. On October 9, he had cocas-ion to
go into it and look after some cattle be
was going to sell. It was in the evening
and after he had gone a ahort distance he
saw a man walking through the pasture
with a gun. and he also notioed that the
cattle were excited. He went on a little
further and discovered that the man with
the gun .was Sak. He asked him what
he was doing with the gun and he said
he was hunting ducks. Kargas drove
over n sand knoll and there discovered
a young calf that had been shot in the
head aad had its throat cut. A little
further on he discovered a wagon with a
boy in it and a calf tied in the wagon.
He questioned the boy about it, but the
boy refused to answer. Kargas 'then
talked with Larue and Sak about it and
also had the dead calf taken to Duncan
to Arnold Gerber, to whom it belonged
that he might see what had become of
it. In the meantime Kargas offered a
reward of -450 for proof as to who shot
the calf. Albert Gerber and Mike
Wisenfluh concluded they would try and
earn the $50, so they started out to do
so. They at first interviewed Sak and
Kush and finally got a sworn statement
from them saying that Kush killed the
calf, but did so at the request of Larue
They then went to see Larue, who
attempted to settle it by paying Gerber
$15 for the calf, and paying the tfto re
ward and also $10 to Kargas. After
they were brought down they were re
leased on their promise to be in court
Friday morning. Larue and Sak were
on hand but Kush decided that a change
of climate would be beneficial and de
parted during the night. Larue aad Sak
were bound over to the district court by
Police Judge O'Brien, aad the bond
placed at $1,000, which was furnished.
Last Friday evening John T. Burke of
Omaha presented a proposition to the
city council in regard to the electric
lighting plant. In substance his propo
sition is this: He proposes to install a
new and up-to-date system, furnish day
power and pump the dtj water for seven
cents per thousand gallons. He asks
the city for n five year contract for
pumping water, the city to furnish the
machinery aad he to keep it ia repair.
A twenty-five year franchise for the
lighting is asked, and he submits a
schedule of prices for lighting that is
lower than the present one, and he also
agrees to put into effect the Philladel
phia moonlight schedule for all night
service. Mr. Burke and Mr. Heintz
agreed on n price for the present plant,
which he will purchase should the coun
cil be favorable to his proposition. He
will then select a new site for the plant
aad install an entirely new, aad up-to-date
equipment as soon as possible,
work to begin within sixty days after
the franchise ia granted. He also agrees
to place tan city in a position to success
fully compete with any locality in
the price of power for manufacturing
purposes. The scale he presents is a
sliding one and the more electricity
used the cheaper it comes in proportion.
The matter has been referred to the
lighting committee and will in all prob
ability be brought before the council for
action in the near future.
