ber22. In the trial of Moser , etal.j
for the murder of Miller , Woods fol
lowed In urging the convection of the
prisoners and tried to treat the evi
dence presented in tha case as a pure
fabrication of the defendant * , intend
ed to explain the circumstances at
tending the death of Wm. P. Miller
In such a way as to relieve them from
any criminating act , or from the sus
picion of having harbored any ill-
feeling or evil intent toward the per
son of Miller.
Late last evening a bombaholl w&i
unexpectedly exploded under the nose
of tha court by the story of Mr. Shil
ling , a * told on the stand. He testf-
fied that prorloua tolhe occurrence
while talking of trouble of tha neigh
borhood and the unceasing terror in
Tfcich Miller's neighbors endured
life , Moser said that Miller had no
friends and no one would care if ho was
killed. And that In the winter of 77
and ' 78 he was in a room over Switz-
er' store , at Watson , where Moser
told him that on the morning of tha
occurrence Miller came to the neld
where they were at work , and made
Inquiries about a team that wai miss
ing from his pasture , and made the
the remark , "Some o ! you sons of
b s have stolen my horses. * ' After
a little talk Moser sent a letter to the
mail carrier by him , and he was off
but came back afterwards with two
gnns , when he ( Moser ) caught him
around the waist and threw him down ,
Dagget jumped upon his breast and
head ; Sweezey grabbed his legs and he
( Moeor ) took a carbine and shot hi a.
Then they let him up And he started
off , going about eighty rods , and turn
ed to coma back , and Sweezey ex
claimed , "Good God , he is coming
back , and will kill us all. " On cross-
examination , Mr. Shiliinp was very
much embarraned. Mr. Lilrd , con
ducting Infe cross-examination , asked
him why he had not told this story to
either of the grand jurors , who had
had under consideration the finding of ;
an indictment against these parties ? '
If he had ever told it td any one be
fore ? He said b had , and named
several ones to whom he had tola this
story , but before ha was through
would not awoar positively that he
had svor told it to any one ; admitted
that he was somewhat deaf ( that he
was present at the oxaminatfon in
Phelps connly.when indlctmant
was fouhd , and yet did not tell this
liory ; that he had some high words
with S. P. Moser at one time , when
he was In the act of taking some wood
Moser thought he ought not to take ,
and that Moser threatened to "ehove
him through" for it , and ho told Mo
ser he could shove him all he wanted.
He said he left th3 wood ; said his
brother was with him. In answer to the
question , "Did yon tell Moseryon
would tend to his care in the Miller
matter ! " He said ho did not , but
thought his brother told- him some
thing of that kind.
Switzer was ther called to Ihe stand
and swore that to tno best of his
knowledge jii Dlief , MoBer did [ no
tailoring the room over his store in
" ° e "Winter ot 77 and 78 , or sinro
* : . < > death of Miller , and ho did not
think. Moser had Wen at work there
since Miller's Seath , nor during the
past four years , It will be remember
ed'that Switzer was a witness for the
prosecution.
Six witnesses then fBstiGua that
they were neighbors fof Schilling ; that
his reputalloa for truth and veracity
was not good , and they would not be
lieve him under oath.
This morning the argument in the
case began. The house was full of
eager listeners , including a dozen
Udlest District Attorney Scofield
opened the ball in a very vigorous
speech in which he said , "I don't care
what witnesses swear to , " and referred
to the attempts made to impeach the
testimony of all the important wit
nesses for the state , and said , 'It is a
very easy matter to Impeach the testi
mony of a witness. With three
months in which to prepare. Mr.
Kaley , with his preacher-like face ,
Laird , with his powerful Influence ,
and my good friend Perry , could Im
peach the testimony of the Saviour. "
Be told the jury he did not desire
this case decided on the proofs fur
nished by the defense , as they would
be liable to nx up the circumstances
In any way that would cxculpete them
from their crimes. Then ha hypothe
cated from his fertile innginatlon the
proofs they should have given.
Exceeding zeal in this extraordi
nary case has been an ugly burden on
the prosecution. Miller wss either
sheriff or deputy sheriff previous to the
election of James Sweezey to that of
fice " , and the jealousy arising there-
"rom seems never to have ceased ; and
the prosecution voices forth the dis
turbing spirit Imbibed from its over
anxious witnesses.
% Hon. H. S. Knley made the open
ing speech for the defense , and made
very damaging reference to the speech
of. Scofield , eipecially in the matter
of consideting what witnesses say
upon the stand. He gave a careful
review of all that part of the affray
concerning which there has been the
least difference , of the different ver
sions of the matter alleged to have
been given by the defendants , and de
sired the jury to weigh very carefully
all conflicting testimony.
J. "W. Perry , of Bloomington , one
of the most interesting speakers in the
Republican valley , tpike one hour tea
a patient audience. He spoke with
slow and cautious stride , and his hear
ers waited upon his words , knowing
that every sentence was wotthy of
cilm consideration. He referred to
the facts that these defendants came
to Nebraska In an early dsy , and took
? lace as pioneers upon the frontier ,
when it was an easy habitation foi
lawless men. That thera they pur
sued tha avocation of farmers , anc
were Industriously at work caring foi
their harvest , when this unfortunate
circumstance occurred. That Millei
lived on the creek when they came
there , that he spent his time in hunt
ing game , fiddling for dances , and ter
rorizing the neighborhood , in turns ,
as p'easad his fancy. He also showed
that the testimony of Schilling waa
worthless , and that his two-sided
manner of relating the circumstances
was the product of iiu imagination
suffering from a peculiar malady for
arranging a train of circumstances ,
and filling tha interstices to make a
web that would suit his own inter
pretation of men's acts.
James Laird followed with the
crowning Speech of the trial ; and be-
Causa it was such , we shall endeavor
to give some extracts therefrom ,
which being fragmentary , are shorn
of half their strength. The peeuh
abounded In sallies of sparkling sar
casm and Idfty apostrophe , and cam o
forth with unlabored rhetorical effect ,
captivating and holding spell-bound
every hearer. In reviewing the testi
mony , he exhibited the interest gome
of the witnesses had in giving their
testimony , touching with ungloved
hands the romanca of that given by
Royal Oreas. The speech lasted near
ly three hours.
Gen. A. H. Connor made a very
logical and forcible argument for the
pnjeocaUon , but it was based upon
the theory that the evidence wns
worthless , because it depended upon
the veracity of witnesses whosj wel
fare were at stake , notwithstanding
tha tact that the positive and unswerv
ing testimony of these witnesses was
corroborated in part by witnesses for
the prosecution. Accordingly , if the
men be hanged at alt , they hang by
theory , and not J > y evidence. Mr.
Scofield , in his plea , stated that if
guilty , they were guilty of murder in
the first degree , but Mr. Connor held
that a second view of the case > giving
credence to the testimony , would still
leave them guilty of manslaughter.
* or , ha-fgue when he had shot the
charge from the rifle at Robart Dale ,
and John Daggett and S. P. Moaer
had taken the loaded carbine from
him , he was then.in their potrer.
Judge Gaslin , in giving instructions
to the jury , indicated that consider
able latitude of action was open for
their consideration.
HTheconngelforthe defensa embraced
three political factors who wore elect
ed to positions this fall. James Laird
ts a member-elect of the electoral col-
letre , H. S. Kaley tad A ; S. Baldwin
were ejected fiom their respective dis
tricts to seats inthb legislature. .Mr.
Kaley Is well knotrn throughout the
state { is one of the leading men in the
commonwealth ) and Jias b'Seh p eminently -
nently mentioned for speaker of the
house. Mr. Baldwin is a brilliant
young man of sterling ability , and
will be a recognized force in the legis
lature.
Any candid man , After listening to
the evidence , in the .fcaso , would con
clude that the feien had learned from
the threats and aesaults of Miller that
n encounter with him might be hour
ly expected , and they had resolved to
kill him if aggravated , rather than im
peril their own lives. They treated
him with neighborly courtesy , with
the desire of.furtb.er removing the im
pending Conflict , and probably indulg
ed the hope that circumstances would
BO change as to relieve them from the
haunting presence of a dreaded foe.
It is but natural to suppose the evi
dence to be a little colored in being
talked and brooded over those long
yeare , but the prosecution dared not
once assert that It differed in the least
particular from that given before the
coroner's inquest six hours after the
battle.
It is generally considered that the
testimony of the witnesses was consci-
sntionaly given , with tha exception of
the whole given by Schilling and oue
remark made by'Gorton. Gorton said
in his testimony that Elkton Miller ,
bfoiner of the deceased stole from
him the § 50 he came .into "p'odsesslon
of as custodian upon the death of Mil-1
ler. Elkton Miller tells me that after
he was appointed administrator of his
deceased brother's effects by the coun
ty judge of Phelpa county , ho called
upon Gorton for the valise and its con
tent ? , and in the purse found only $40
Instead of. 850 , as had been reported
ttt him. It is not unreasonable to
suppose the ten dollars hid been used
for the necessary expenses of burial ,
but this is a peculiar kind of larceny
unknown to our statutes.
The judge presided with his naual
firmness and impartiality. On one oc-
; aaion , when the artistic skill of Jas.
Daird waa drawing forth the true in-
rardnesj of some testimony given by
k witness for the prosecution , Mr. Sco-
ield complained that tuo court allow-
sd him ( Laird ) greater privileges than
irere permitted him. The jndsje ear-
: astically retorted : "Yes , this court is
an for the especial benefit of two or
; hreo attorneys in the district. "
A half dozen local papers were rep
resented ; but THE BEB was the only
netropolltan paper present , Sinca
istening to the facts brought out in
his trial , your correspondent h&s
nade inquiry regarding this turbulent
leighborhood , and is told that five
nurdors were committed on the creek
within a short
> y unknown hands ,
line prior to the death of Miller , but
lolhing of the kind has happened
ince. And though the shadows of
ivil-dlsposed men still linger in the
ucioity , It is to he hoped that further
lisregard foi human life will bo aban-
loned.
THE VERDICT.
The jary , after being out twenty-
verdict of man-
onr hours , returned a
laughter against Jacob Moser and
Tames Sweezey , but acquitted Samuel
? . Moser.
The Juuge announced the verdict
n open court this morning , but said
10 sentence could be passed on a ver-
lict of manslaughter , because barred
> y statute limitation tha statute eay-
ng that an indictment for manslaught-
ir most be found within three yeara-
ifter the commission of the offense.
Immediately thereafter the district
ittorney moved to enter a nolleprossc
n the casa against John Daggett , R.
Dales and Stmuel Dales.
The termination of this matter meets
rith the bearty approval of nearly all ,
deluding , we believe , the prosecution

Br. Loots , November 25 , 1 a. m.
There ia a prospect of a grain blockade -
ado in this market in a short time.
The river is practically closed to navi
gation , and will probably continue in
that condition for some time. The
I'aiirdads have raised their tariff on
through freight rr.tea , and the eleva
tors are carrying un unprecedented
large stock of grain , while tha re
ceipts of wheat and corn , especially
tha latter , are expected to be very
large during the coming month so
large , In fact , that unless aome outlet
is furnished , the storage capacity of
the city will be greatly overtaxed.
The total stock of grain in the regular
elevatota yesterday was over 27,000-
000 bushels , nearly 2,000,000 of which
is wheat alone , which ia the largest
stock of wheat ever carried in the
market.
