aho was drunk as a tick and that there
was nothing else the mutter with her.
Witness \raa afterwards cross-examined
ay Mr. Shields , but with no material ad

y conscious and there was no Incoher
ence in her talk.
Nellie Fuller , tlio woman who attend
ed Nottio Howard , during her illness ,
ras the next witness. She snid tnat shn
md known the dead girl about four years
Witness described the manner of her go.
tig Into the house and discovering
hat the lloward girl was in jlamcs. I lor
eatimony developed no point of apodal
ntornst. Thompson had gone up to the
lodaido of Notlio lloward early Saturday
naming , after the fire had boon oxtin-
juishud , and had said : "Nottio , can you
iver forgive the man who
> urnt you ? " Notlio paid , "No ,
' 11 Dover glvo you away. "
Witness was then questioned with re
gard to the interview of Mr. llnmil with
ho dying girl , when she made the aUto
nout criminating Thompson and "Eng <
ish Liz , " Her tonlimony was a sub
stantial verification of Mr. Haiml's testi-
noiiy. She had boon in the same room
Ltid heard the whole thing. She
jeliovod that the girl Nottio lloward was
wfootly conscious when she made the
itatouiont. WitnoBs said that both bo-
ere and after this inter via fr the girl hat
refused to say anything about the occur
ronoo. In fact she haa hardly been In i
o million lo make an inlolligont state
Her testimony developed no point o
pocittlintoroat. Thompson had gone to Ih
bedside of Notlio Howard early Saturday
morning , after the fire had bnen uxliu
guished and ho had Bald , "Nottio , cat
you over forgive tbo man who burncc
you1 ! Nottio said , "No , I'll uever giv
you away. "
Witness waa then questioned with regard
gard to the Interview of Mr. Hamill will
the dying girl , when she made the state
ineiit crltuin llug Thompson nnd "Kng
lish LJ2 " Her testimony was a substan
tial vorllioition of Mr. lUmill's tustiniony
She had been in the aatno roou
and hoard the whole thing. Sh
believed that the girl Nuttio Howard w
perfectly oonscioca when eho made th
otutumunt. Witness said tlut both bufor
and after this Interview the girl bad re
fused to say anything about the ooour
ronceIn fact Bho had hardly boon in a
condition to make an intelligent state
ment boforo. . . . ,
Mary Elaton and Nottio Hoach , who
were in the room adjacent to the ono in
which Nottio Howard waa lying when she
rnado the Btatomonl of the crime to Mr.
Hamill , testified. Both had hoard the
statements implicating "English Liz" and
Thompson. Their tosllmony was sub-
alanlially Iho same on this point , as that
of the two preceding witnesses , Inas
much , however , as they worn not close to
Iho bedside when aho made the statement
and could not hear so distinctly , the tes
timony of Mary Ehton and Nolllo Hoach
waa hardly as explicit.
' A roccBS was taken until 2 p. m , when
the testimony was resumed.
THE MMP AM > OlOTIIER
were exhibited before the jury , nnd it
wna shown that the lamp hr.d boon found
with the top nnd burner screwed off and
lying on the lloor. The conclusion
reached was that if the girl had reached
over nnd accidentally pulled over the
lamp upon herself , the top would have
been fond broken off , or if the lamp had
exploded , it would have bcon wrenched
oil' . On the contrary the lamp indicated
that no such process had taken place , tu
Hint the top nnd burner had boon un
screwed by some ono.
Ofllcor Donovan was the first wltnoas
called in the afternoon. Ho hoard the
police whistle blowing about 1 o'clock in
the morning and thought it might bo

tlicOtoo Land Hftlcs.
The indlctmonto founded upon alleged
frauds in the sale of the Otoo reservation
lands , retnrnod on Tuesday evening
were made public yesterday. Thoao pre
sentments were returned against N , K ,
Grlggs , Col. Ashby , H. W. Parker , F.
M. Barnes and L. E. Wheeler , all of
Beatrice. The indictments charge these
defendants with conspiracy to defraud
the United States government in its sale
of the lands belonging to the Otoo tribe
of Indians and situate in Gage csunly
in this state.
l rom the testimony adduced in th
grand jury room upon which Iheso indict
moula nero founded , il appears thai
there wore two kinds of fraud committed
The first was the changing of the bids nl
the time nnd place of the sale. A bidder
dor would oiler five dollars or moro per
aero , as the case might be , and
after the figure ) for that sold
quarter were placed upon records of land
purchased , they would bo lowered nt thi
pleasure of the clerk or whoever wna in
charge of the booka. The second , and
what is considered the grossest fraud wa
the bidding off of these lands at the firs
sale in May , 1883 , when the purchaser
had no intention of paying out on it or
complying with the law.
It is satd that evidence was adduced
before the grand jury to the effect that a
society of about sovonty-fivo citizens of
CJago county was organized to prevent
actual Bottlers from buying those lando.
Their policy nt the first sale was to bid
; hem up bayond the price Hint bona fide
purchasnrs could afford to pay. The
ands would then bo struck oil to them
and they would fall to mnko their entries.
The olFect of thia proceeding would
30 to throw the land upon the
market a second timo. At the second
Bale not nearly BO many bidders would bo
present , and they could got the land nt
icarly their own prices. It is claimed
hat so extensively waa Ihia. fraud car
led on that ever ouo-half of the rpserva
ion was sold n second time. It is said
his society had its officers , and was na
iomplotoly organized aa it was posai-
> lo for such an organization to
)0. , Its head men were nt
ho December sales blue ribbons , while
those of the others were rod. The pur.
lose those Insignia served was to enable
ho members of the society to toll when
hey were bidding against their follow
The indictments against these do-
endants allege generally the charge of
conspiracy , and then sot up the particn-
ar facia. Quo of the particular acts
complained of against Barnes in the con-
piracy was hiring n third party not to
) id on a quarter which ho had
entered in May and not taken ,
t appears that at the first sale
10 offered 8110 per acre for a quarter and
jolng the highest bidder It was knocked
( T to him. Ho failed to pay the one-
uarler of Iho purchase price within
ilnoty days after aa required by law , and
unquestionably forfeiled his righl. In
ho meantime , however , ho had made
valuable Improvement upon it. At the
