PEPERKORN, THE GAY DECEIVER.
He Wins the Affections of an
Omaha Girl, who Follows him
to Hoboken, and then
Feperkorn then Elopes with a
Married Woman, who Steals
$1,000 from her Husband
and Hides it in her Chig
non, where it is Found
Upon her Cap
ture. In September, of last year, a well
dressed and apparently wealthy
gentleman, named E. Peperkorn, a
German by birth, a civil engi
neer by profession, and a ras
cal by nature, arrived in this
city from Davenport, Iowa. He
had, or at least pretended to have,
business in various parts of the
State, making his headquarters at
Omaha. He became acquainted
with quite a number of people in
this city, among them being Miss
Louisa Harbs, a" niece of Mr. F.
Kumpf, the well known boot and
shoe maker on Douglas street He
mether at FLCalhoun where she was
visiting,and continuing the acquain
tance afterwards in Omaha, the girl
learned to love him, he of course
having previously declared his
boundless and undying love for her.
Alas! how often are the brightest
expectations of even the most san
cruine dashed to the cround! Such
indeed proved to be the case with
Louisa Harbs, who would persist in
loving Peperkorn to distraction,
notwithstanding the objections of
her relatives, who took a deep in
terest in her welfare. On account
of this interference, Louisa ceased
her visits, about January 1st, to the
house of her uncle, Mr. Kumpf.
In February Peperkorn went on
a visit to Europe, and returned in
the middle of April to find his Lou
isa faithful as ever. Peperkorn,
however, did not remain long in
Omaha, but went to Hoboken, New
Jersey. Three weeks ago, Louisa
Harbs packed her trunk, and went
East, accompanied by Mrs. B r,
in whoso house she had been em
ployed as a servant. Louisa, of
eour&e, went to Hoboken to meet
her future husband, he having writ
ten for her to come end fulfill the
engagement existing between them.
She was met on her arrival by
Peperkorn, who took her to the
Park Hotel, and registered himself
"and lady," from Omaha.
At the Park Hotel, as we learn
from the New York Herald, they
feasted and enjoyed the luxuries of
life in a manner which showed a de
termined disposition to make them
selves supremely happy. After a
few days orders were given by the
chivalrous looking Peperkorn to
make preparations for the celebra
tion of marriage ceremonies. This
was done, and to impart a
religious character to the tying of
the matrimonial knot, the Rev. Mr.
Bristow, pastor of the Protest Epis
copal Church, was invited to per
form the ceremony, which he did
with the customarysolemnity. All
went merry with the newly married
pair until June 18th, when Mr. Pep
erkorn absented himself. The next
afternoon information reached the
police station that a Mr. Sherman,
of Ann street, New York, had been
abandoned, and, what was perhaps
worse, robbed of $1,000 by his wife
Lena,and that she was about to leave
for Europe in company with another
husband. An officer hastened to
the Hamburg Dock, and searched
the steamer Westphalia, which was
about to leave port. After long
labor he found Mrs. Sherman, and a
large quantity of baggage, which,
on examination, was found to be
Peperkorn's, The vessel was then
searched, but no Peperkorn was
there. Mrs Sherman acknowledged
that she was about to elope with him,
but denied any knowledge of his
whereabouts. In her chignon some
of her husband's jewelry was found
secreted, and she had in her pos
session $750 out of the $1,000 missed
by her husbanJ. The latter de
clined to proceed any further
against his spouse, and seemed very
glad to have caught her in the nick
of time. Meanwhile Mrs. Peperkorn
has returned to the private resi
dence of some personal friends in
Washington street, Hoboken, and
is awaiting further developments.

Telegraph Operator Fatally
Shot by a Saloon Keeper.
A Lively Duel Between the
From a telegram received In this
city yesterday we learn the par
ticulars of a probable fatal shooting
J affray which occurred at Julesburg,
on the Union Pacific railroad Tues
day, between W. A. Safford,
operator at the station, and C. C.
Clifton, a keeper of a low groggery.
It appears that a few days ago
Clifton accused Safford of taking
his pocket knife, and threatened to
shoot him, pulling a revolver on
him, but without shooting.
Tuesday afternoon Safford went
over to Clifton's saloon to "make
up", with him, but failing to do so,
high words ensued between the
two men, when Safford pulled his
revolver, knowing that Clifton had
one, and that he had threatened to
out his revolver,
first shot, which
and without a
tion, fired the
took effect in Safford's breast. A
livelv exchange of shots followed,
but the first was the only one that
hit the mark.
Safford was taken to Sidney on
the east-bound train, and there re
ceived medical attendance. The
wound is pronounced fatal, and Saf
ford is now lying at the point of
Clifton retreated to bis house, and
when the citizens attempted to take
him, he kept blazing away at them,
taking care not no hit anyone. He
thus kept them at bay till late at
night, when M. F. Leach, the sta
tion agent, had the courage to cap
ture him single-handed, and take
where he is now locked up.
