Judge Neville rendered his decision in
the Lsitier cnso Saturday sustaining
tlio motion for n new trial , The following
Is tlio text of liis opinion.
Ktnto vs. Jolm W. Latter.
This cnso is before mo on a motion fern
n new trial based tiDoii alleged errors in
instructions to the jury , itmitto Inlliioneo
by tlio presence of Indies especially and
demonstrations by the citizens present at
the trial. Also it is asked upon the
ground that manslaughter , which was
tlio verdict , could not bo sustained by the
evidence , although the court might , think
there was evidence to sustain a higher
grade of homicide.
As to all of the alleged errors except
"the last I should feel justified iu leaving
them to the supreme court to say whether
nny prejudice grew out of HIICII alleged
errors or , not , feeling that the defendant
had a fair and impartial trial of his case
as to those matters.
I did not see any demonstrations on the
part of any lady or ladies which were in
the least objectionable , and 1 must say
that the same number of men crowded
into the court room as these ladles were
would have been far more susceptible to
demonstrations , and to that extent they
were a benefit to the accused. The only
demonstration that 1 heard or saw eaniu
from a few inconsiderate men in the rear
part of the room , and I could not identify
them , but , this demonstration came nsap-
ulauso to defendant's ' counsel as well as
10 the state's. . '
Now I have to stay as to the bare pres
ence of a large number .of ladies , that the
laws of our state requires that Hie trials
shall bo public and not private totany
class or sex , and if the Infinite lias given
an inllucnco in woman's presence which
will prompt courts and jurors to a reali
zation of duty , I hope they will step into
tlio court rooms of our land whenever
they feel justiliod. * * * *
Tlio last prouosition of the defendants
is that manslaughter is not n proper ver
dict , oven if a higher grade could be sus
tained by the court.
Under the common law manslaughter
was the necessary part of the crime of
murder and the doctrine that tho'lcss was
always included in the greater in the
common law definition of manslaughter
and murder , the courts were compelled
to hold that if the verdict was for man
slaughter , although tlio evidence showed
murder , that the verdict is sustained by
the evidence.
Our statute defines manslaughter as
follows : " 'If ' any person shall unlawfully
kill another without malice , either upon
a sudden quarrel or unintentionally
while the slayer is in the commission of
some unlawful act , every such person
shall be deemed guilty of manslaughter. "
This statute is exclusive. That is , it
excludes all offenses of manslaughter
under the common law , and makes a sep
arate ami distinct oll'enso , for this reason ,
that under this statute manslaughter can
only exist where the killing was done in
a sudden quarrel while the slayer was
in the performance of some nn-
lawtul act. * * * The statute having
made manslaughter not a necessary
part of murder , the jury when tboy find
manslaughter must so find because the
facts sustain such offense , not because
they may think that the higher crime is
'proven as they could do under the com
mon law. * * * When the common
law made manslaughter a necessary and
integral part of murder , then the court
had tlio power by foren of the law to sen
tence under verdict of manslaughter
where the evidence sustained murder , but
when the statute made manslaughter not
a necessary and integral part of murder ,
then the jury niust'lind whether or not
the facts constitute manslaughter , as an
' independent oll'ensc upon a state of facts
which sustain manslaughter , before the
court has legal authority to sentence.
Then the case resolves itself into the
proposition whether or not the facts and
circumstances proven show , suflicuntly
st'.ong that the killing was done upon a
quarrel and so conclusive that a court
would feel bound to sustain a verdict of
The killing upon a sudden quarrel ,
Without malice , which is contemplated by
our statutory manslaughter , means a
killing HO suddenly and without time to
deliberate , that no malice could bo enter
tained , 'Jiio proof is overwhelming that
the object was hoard , seen , tlio revolver
deliberately leveled , and the trigger
pulled at the object. It is , therefore ,
doubtful if the crime can be re-
( jeed to manslaughter if the defendant
know what ho was shooting at.
I very much regret the conclusion to
which I am forced in this case , but it is
ono fairly deduced from the law as I view
It is not necessary to review the facts
as they ara familiar to all interested in
the cause. It is milllciont for me to say
that the proofs bore upon murder either
In the lirut or second degree with much
' .more . force than they did upon man
slaughter. And there is not millloieiit
Lrproof of a killing upon a sudden quarrel
given at tbe trial at this time to sustain
Ik'llovfiig as I now do , that at a second
trial a result can bo had which wilt bo
more satisfactory to the state ami de
fense , and tlio law in my judgement re
quiring it , the verdict must bo set aside
and a now trial ordered.

Lot 8 , on the northwest corner of
* x Lcavonworlh and Eleventh streets , lies
y adjacent on the east to the property of the
f gas company. Some time ago the gas
company , it is claimed , bought the parcel
* from Frank Murphy , who has owned it
: for a number of years back , Saturday
i , presuming on their ownership of the
* property und live of the houses situated
' Upon it , the gas company ordered some
cf its men to demolish a frame barn in
the rear , opening on the alloy north of
? Leavcnworth. ' 1 no work had not been
, quite completed when , at about 5:110 : p.
t m. , a gang of men raised in the middle of
the lot two piles of railroad tics ami
strung others out from ono end of the Jot
i almost to the other , and then throw rails
upon thorn as if about to build a track ,
' Uy 0 o'clock the gas company had col-
' looted a goodly number of men upon the
* ground , who wore ordered to resist any
further cncroacbmonl upon the property
1 Last night these men were supplied with
' , weapons and ammunition and stationed
. around the lot and in ono of the old and
. untenanted houses near the corner.
During tlio night a number of men
, t I prowled around the place , presumably
, ' * employes of the railroad company , wait-
f jng to BOO if the iras company should attempt -
\ tempt to throw oil' the track material
, already deposited upon tlio ground. The
. tics and iron , however , were unmolested.
It is believed it is well they wcro not , bo-
i cause , tlio gas men were ordered , if necesSary -
Sary , to use force to keep off the treas-
pa'ssera. Judging from tlio appearance
of the men who held tho- fort baturday
a determined resistance could -have-
„ been iuado whlolrwonld have had , doubt
less , a not very happy termiiuUioii.
t , Tlio .Union Pacilio claim * to have a
' right to the lot iu question , the prospect
of the gas company permanently Im
proving it led the former to take stops
to keep them out of possession until the
matter could bo adjudicated. Mr. Mur
phy admits that the only claim the Union
Pacific road has upon the property is that
of right of way along the corner on one
end , which in no way affects the lot for a
business site.

Kato Castlcton is , beyond a doubt , one
of tiio most captivating actresses who
visits Omaha. Her presence is attractive
and her manner fascinating , while her
acting is such as to disarm criticism.
Those are well recognized facts and her
appearance hero this ovoninp will af
ford our people , for the second time this
season , the rare pleasure of again wit
nessing this popular ravorilo.
There is an increased interest in Mis ?
Castloton's appearance this year in the
fact that she is to appear for Manager T.
F. Itoyd's ' benefit. Mr. Boyd's manage
ment of the opera house is something in
which everybody is interested. If it were
unsuccessful it would bo a public calam
ity , Being all that could bo desired , it is
: i source ol public congratulation. Such
being the case , Mr. Itoyd , to whom this is
all duo , deserves the kindly altontion of
the patrons , a circumstance which can
not always bo credited to theatrical man
agers. Secure tickets , therefore , for Kale
Castlcton and Mr. lioyd kto-night.

Gen. Crook received Saturday
from Lieut. Gen. Sheridan an
order for the cxcliangcof the
Fourth and the Second regiment
of Infantry , stationed respectively in the
departments of the I'lattu and Columbia.
The Fourth regiment under the command1
lias its headquarters at Fort Omaha ,
with , several companies at Forts Niubraru
and Robinson. It has been in this de
partment for liftcen years or more. The
Second infantry , which will bo trans
ferred to tlio Department of tlio 1'latto , is
now scattered through Oregon , Califor
nia and'Idaho. It does not follow that
this regiment will succeed the Fourth at
Fort Omaha. It will in all probability bo
stationed at some western post , while
some rcgimcnt'now ' in the west possibly
that of Col. Morrow , tlio Twenty-lirst
will be sent to this point.
The same general order provides for
the exchange of the First ami Kiglitli reg
iments , respectively , of the Departments
of Ari/.onn and California. Tlio move in
both cases will commence on July 1 , 1880.
Tlio Elevator Foil.
At half past one o'clock ' Saturday
the elevator pi the Millard hotel fell from
tiio fifth story to tlio .bottom iloor.
Though it contained six persons v.t the
time , no one was injured and tlio eleva
tor was not damaged in the least. The
occasion , it might bo remarked , was the
testing of the Ellithorpo air cushion ,
which has recently been put in , and tlio
experiment was a complete success. The
elevator was suspended from the top of
the shaft , and when the rope was cut , it
descended so lightly that not the sligblt-
cst jar was felt by the passengers.
The fall of 83 feet was made" in loss than
two seconds and a half , and when tlio car
icuchud the first tloor tlio iar was so
slight that the passengers hardly realized
that they had "touched bottom. " One
dozen eggs which made the trip with the
passengers remained intact. Besides tiio
car itself , which weighed 2,000 pounds ,
tlioro were several passengers who added
to the weight as follows : A. E , Marriott ,
150 ; W. II. Bartlo , 170 ; II. U. Franco , MO ;
E. C. Snyder , 11)0 ) ; F. T. Ellithorpo , 100 ;

on board several deputy United Slates
marshals on their way to Dry Creek to
arrest some rioters , Tlio strikers greatly
outnumbered the deputies and compelled
them to turn back. On the Utah & North

to bo unwilling to go back to work at the
old rates.

The State Pharmaccutioal association
of Nebraska will convene .ill this city to
morrow In annual session. The meeting
will last until Friday. jKsRccial Interest
has been attached to ihisancoting from
the discussion of the proposed state phar
macy law. The association tlio members
of which are most directly- concerned in
the proposed law , will doubtless express
an opinion in regard to.tho.Jnw that will
go far in influencing tlia-lcgislnturo in
giving the question tlio careful at
tention that its importance demands.
The bill will bo prepared ) nnd submit
ted to the legislature next winter for
passage. Outside of the meeting of the
druggists the finest line of chemicals , extracts -
tracts , phnrmactictical preparations and
toilet articles over scon in tins state will
bo placed on exhibition. Many of the
noted manufacturers of the country have
signified llioir intention to place on exhi
bition in tlio Exposition building samples
of their goods and the public generally
will bo treated to a genuine surprise in
the goods. The display promises to bo
the largest over seen west of the Missis
sippi , and will partake largely of the
nature of the exhibit made at the centen
nial Exposition in 1870. While it will not
bo so largo , still the lines will servo to
show the growing importance of tlio
pharmacist and wholesale manufacturer
of pharmaceutical goods.
Mr. Charles Daubach , local secretary
of the association , has done much toward
the arrangements which promise to make
