Correspondence of The Lt-c.
< \J.MA , Harfon Co. , Neb. , Nov. 19.
Yesterday the Phelps county mur
der trial , which czcites intense inter
est in this section , begun before Judge
Jaslin. It was three years ago that in
very sparsely settled portion of
Phelps county , this state , occurred
tne of the strangest tragedies that has
ever come within the notice of Nebrw :
fa courts. In the southwest corner
of this county is a beautiful and ro I
mantic stream known as Spring Creek ,
nd along its borders era excellent
farming lands , eettled by the first
families who pietccd its confines. The
first settlement established oh the
stream was known an the Rock Falls
neighborhood , made in 1872. In thii
settlement resided all the parties di-
rnctly interested tn the present trial or
having any direct knowledge of tfc'o
tragic end of Wm. P. Miller , one of
its original member's. Living as next
neighbors io Miller , were Samuel P.
Mxmer , Jacob Moser and James Swse-
zay , the three parties now being tried
on a charge of murder iu the first
degree. John Daggett , Samuel Sales
and Robert Doles , other members of
the settlement will hereafter be , tried
for murder in the second degree for
connection with this same tragedy , if
the prosecution succeed in attaching
guilt to the parties now on trial. .
The deceassd was killed July iOih ,
1877 , and the coroner's jury decided
that he came to his death by reason * of
being shot by these defendants , and
pronounced the act justifiable homi
cide. The reader will ascertain from
the evidence adduced why this case
ha * slumbered three years.
The prosecution is repiesented by
District Attorney Scho5oldassialedby
Gea. A. H. OoLnor , of Kearney , and bi
Woods , of Alma. The defense bim
embraces the following eminent legal so
lights : Hon. Jas. Laird , -Hastings : soar
J. W. Perry , of Bloomingten , and arbe
H. S. Kaley , of Red Cloud. bed
The court room is crowded with d
eager listeners , notwithstanding the lu
extreme cold weather. It is not im th
proper to say that many regard fo
the trial aa an unnecessary expense tii
upon Phelps county , and the result of sh
pent-op jealously and enmity. A ma shD
jority of the district bar is in attend LI
ance , expecting two controverted at
points in law to be decided dur
ing the trial : First , Whether in Ne Sp.
braska courts the character of a dead
-.nan can bo overhauled ; and second , be
Oia the defendant's sworn statements
before a coroner's jury be introduced ty
FK evidence against them , when on no
trial , charged with the murder of the th
man over whom that coroner's jury
were deliberating.
The evidence thus far elicited goes Sjx
to show that on the morning of July
19,1877 , Robert Dale , Samuel Dale ,
John Daggett , James Sweezpy , Jacob an ;
Mcser , aud'Samuel ' P. Moscr went sti
Into the harvest field of the latter to CO :
cut wheat. Wm. P. Miller came to an
the field from the direction of his Sb
home , passed salutations with Dag mi
gett , and then he spoke to Samuel P. en
Moser. He received from Moser a
letter to take to the mail carrier ,
and some change , and passed on en
InlJthc ] directionof Moaer'a house. yei
Nothing more was seen of him by the th
harvesters till between ten and tic
eleven o'clock , when Miller returned hi
the field from the north with a de
muzzle-loading rifle and a Spencer fat
carbine. The first man he came upon wl
was Robert Dale , who asked him
where he wai going armed in that en
style. Miller said , "I'm going to kill str
that d d Sweezey. " Approaching psi
Sweezey , Miller cocked his gun , took thief
lra , and said , "G d d n you , of
fpu've got to die. " Sweezey fell on fus
his knees and said , "Don't kill me ; the
what ! have I done ] " His answer was sul
pull the trigger and say , "You've
jot to die. " Sweezey was the sheriff , SOI
md told him to lay down his arms Fr
Mid give up to the law. Miller re- ed
cappsd the gun and again took aim.
Sweezey then begced for his life on
tccount of his wife ffand children.
Miller snapped this cap , and taking a
pin ! from hit shirt bosom , aud Laving sec yes
picked the tube of his gun , capped it att
igatn. Sweezey again fell upon his a
knees and begged for his life for the de
lake of his wito and children. Miller
turned the muzzle of the gun toward
him , picked up the carbine that lay at Me
foot , and ordered Sweezey to march Is i
n down the field , and ha would kill ]
them all together. ' When Daggett laii
ras met by this loving cupl < * on their hv
last promenade , he halted the team ,
ililler drew his gun as if to aim nt coi
lira , and Daggett jumpad from his <
teat and took refuge behind his team. me
Miller dodged back and forth to shoot dal
Daggett , keeping Sweezey a few feet rar
lUtant , and also in easy range. Sam- tie
P. Moser , who was near by , rin
and asked Miller , "What are you Int
joing to ehojt John for ? " Miller's
* 0 (
Inswcr was , "You g i d d gray- tie
Mired , Fir shoot ab
ou , " and turned his gun on him. At he
ibis juncture Robert Dale , who was a to
ihort distance north binding , realizing toun
that actual trouble had arisen with un
this desperado , "started to run from of
the field , and csrae in range of Mil in
ler's gun over Moser'a head , when nebo
Miller turned to shoot Moser. Miller bean >
ld , "You English , md
you'll not getaway , " and covered him. vc
The gun fired this time , shooting
Robert Dala in the knee , inflicting a
trifling wound. Aa the gun went off
Samuel Mcser jumped to pick up the
cwbine , which was lying at the des L
perado's feet , tat before he could md
raach it Miller grabbed it. and drop- > %
jing the riflefstrucfc at Mnser's head , or !
mt missed it , and hit him on the we

Jacob Mcser , who , whc-n the r.ffi' y
begun , ran from the lower pail of the
field to the house for the faaitly

COO feet of hole. The contractor ,
John Stough , is therefore in luck that
the contract was executed before the
breakage occurred.
The Ponca Journal of the 18th
inst. has the following sketch of the
coal company and facts regarding the
petroleum and coal finds :
It is with great pleasure and satis
faction that we are able to announce
that on last Friday afternoon , the
niinfirs engaged in boring for coal
struck at a depth of 580 feet , a layer of
coal four and a half feet thick. Thus
have the difficulties , discouragements
and labors of the Ponca coal company
been triumphantly crowned with sue-
cess. "
The Police coal company was or-
anizz < l ro-.rly three years ago. A
ycur ago they first commenced boring
fore -1 , and aftarniuch expense , the
hole ai a depth of 410 feet had to be
sb'adoiid < A fevr 'months since-
work was commenced to put down
new hole. Foitunately , this time , no
accidents occusrcd to stop the work ,
and now afca depth of 580 feet they
iiave solved the col problem for Ne §
braska and Dakota.
In sinking thh 580 foot hole , the
miners first struck rock at a depth of
about 100 fcot. Aftervards and be
fore the final strike , they passed bifc
through several byeis of coal , but fcfc
none of them of sufficient thickness fcfo
10 be of much value. > When down _ fo
about 450 feet they came to a deep fofo
crevco : in the rock , through which a bite
stream of water flowed with great
Force So great a pressure , indeed ,
hat the hole , hitherto clear of water
or a great distance , was filled nearly
tithe top. From this point downward
several more sublernneap water
courses were passed through , thus
orcing the water higher and higher
al the surface. But it was not water
which the minors were after , as this
country h already blessed sufficiently G
in that regard.
When down about 550 feet the
detected the smell of petro- to :
'erni , which as they proceeded on ,
rap"j y b.cnmo stronger. The drill Ut
when taken out was coated with oil
aud tha cable irai saturated with It.
L\ > r two mornings befcie striking
coal , Iho wr.ter in the hole was cov
ered to the dupth of ten inches with
oil , BO that it looked very much as
though an oil well would be the result
in a very short time. There can be
no doubt that when down between
550 feet aud the four and one-half
foot coal bed , one or more veins of
011 were tappad , but whether these
veins are largo or small , cannot be
told with certainty. Yet it
must be remembered that what
Ihtlo oil came on top had to
run the gauntlet for over 100 feet of
the numerous rapid underground
streams before mentioned , and unless
the supply of oil at the fountain head
was great indeed , it. Is wonderful that
any , of it was ever able to reach the
top at all. Wo believe that when they
struck oil , if tbo miners had stopped
there ; and tubed down to the oil so as
cnt off the torrents of water which N
vroro sweeping across the course of the 3 ,
hole for over a hundred feet , they wi
would have had a good paying oil 2
well. This was maintained by Mr. 10
Liwrenca , superintendent of the work ,
and was the belief of others whose
expcriente in the oil regions of Ptsnn- J
aylvan'a , entitles their opinions to 82
much respect. H
Immediately after passing this re-
< n of oil the miners , to the joy of ce
Mt-sors. Stough & Welty , the con cewi
tractors doing the work , and especial 2
to the joy of the members of the 2he
company , struck one of the grandest he
; ial beds in th& west. Indeed , it is heo
the only one of any value or size thus
far discovered in Nebraska or south n
ern Dakota. The specimens nf coal II
taken out show an excellent quality. IIYi
The next effort must be , as a mat
ter of coune , to get donn to the coal YiD
with a shaft. The distance , 580 feet , H
not eo great as to be discouraging. ar
Frequently a much thinner vein , at
four times that depth , has been open ar7C
and profitably worked. . The com 7C
pany haa several thousand acre * of 88
If.iid with which and 88ae
, the wonderful ae
prospects ' now opened up , there will ae1C
Uttla difficulty in obtainine capital 1CIE
develop their discoveries. Allow it
cost S25.000 before the company tnca
can commence taking out coal , the cain
coal , four and a hMf teet thick of a ? 7
single acre yields 7000 tons , and that
alone will repiy the amount , besides in
paying for the cost of mining it.
Wfcen one considers the Immense de
mand for fuel in Nebraska and Dakota
wl'1 be truly admitted th t this is
the grandest discovery ever made in
ths state. Coal stock , which a few
fecks ago was considered almost 81
worthless , is rapidly assuming a per 52
manent value , and is being gathered
in by thee who see a gocd round sum
to be made on the speculation. "
