The ijniicr Trial.
Mrs. Whitehorn , tlio wife of a preced
ing witness , was tliu llrst called in the
Lauer trial j'csterday afternoon. Slio
testified to the pleasant relations which
existed between Mr. and Mrs. Laucr.
Mrs. Hilda Nelson , a woman who
lived about one hundred feet from the
Lauer mansion testified that she used to
go to their house about two or three
times a week to work ; after the reconcil
iation she noticed that Latier always
treated his wife kindly.
Cornelius J. Sullivan , cx-boookkccpcr
nt the nail works , tcstilied that ho knew
Mrs. Laucr as well as her husband , for
the twenty months after to the reconcil
iation. Mrs. Lauer was in the habit of
driving down to the nailworks to get her
husband and drive home with him. They
always seemed affectionate and happy
"Do you remember any instances of
affection ? " a kt' ! J'u.lge Savage.
"Yioll , if you call chucking Jior under
the chin or her sitting on his lap in
stances of affection , then I have seen
Biich things. "
This piece of testimony caused a low
ripple of laughter through the court
room. Even Laucr's features relapsed
Into a smile.
Cross-examined by General Cowin Mr.
Sullivan said that he had been in the
habit of going to Mr. Laucr's house
about once in two months to play cards ,
just to keep a social acquaintance. Mr.
and Mrs. Lauor were always happy.
"They were the most happy couple
you over saw ? " asked General Cowin.
" 1 haven't seen many married couples
together. "
"Hut they were the most happy cotiplo
you oversaw , weren't they ? "
"Well , I have seen couples that made
worse fools of themselves , " retorted the
" 1 suppose , " said General Cowin , "that
when married people act very affection
ate or make fools of themselves in public
it is an index that their private life is not
BO happy ? "
"I object to that question , " Jsald Judge
Savage , laughing ; "this young man is
not called as an expert in matrimonial
alfairs. "
Mr. Sullivan , on further cross-examina
tion , testified that ho had several times
looked tnrough the olllco window and
saw Mr. and Mrs. Lauor at different times
sitting in each other's lap. They seemed
very affectionate.
Airs. Savage was called and testified to
the pleasant relations between Mr. and
Mrs. Lauer. She was a neighbor of
Mrs. Savage also claimed to have ex
amined the broken screen of the cellar
window , through which the burglar is
said to have escaped. Mrs. Lauer had
also given her account of the burglary.
Judge Thurston asked for this account ,
but General Cowin objected. The court
sustained the objection , and the defense
took an exception.
Mrs. Savage testified that on the Satur
day afternoon of the tragedy she
saw Mr. and Mrs. Lauei who had been
out driving go into the house together.
That was about 5 o'clock. They seemed
happy and affectionate. That evening
the witness sat up until about 13 o'clock
reading. She put down her curtains at
about -that time and then noticed that
the windows in the Lauer house were
dark. About two hours after she retired
she was awakened by hearing a shot.
Shortly afterwards she heard some" one
say "Oh , Mrs. Savage ! " She imme
diately dressed and went over to the
Lauer house , meeting Mrs. Lauer. The
latter had on only a nightgown and a
pair of slippers , with an old shawl
thrown over her shoulders.
In another portion of her testimony
Mrs. Savage stated that her house was
so close to that of Lauer's that she could
hear everything that transpired in tlio
lattor's house and hear him get up in the
morning , walk across the lloor , go down
the stops , or could hoar Mr. and Mrs. L.
frolicking together. 'During all that lime
she saw or heard no unpleasantness be
tween Mr. and Mrs. Lauer.
General Cowiu cross-examined the wit
ness pretty sharply.
"You watched tlio Lauer house pretty
closely , didn't you ? " ho asked.
"No , sir. "
"You spent a good deal of time that
way. didn'tyou ? ' '
"No , sir. "
Mrs. Savage testified that her eyesight
was very poor , whereupon General
Cowin asked sarcastically :
"Your eyesight was not too poor toon-
able you to look into the Laucr house and
watch things , was It ? "
"No , sir , It wasn't , " snappishly the
witness replied.
Continuing Mrs. Savage testified that
she had several times visited Mr. and
Mrs. Latter and she noticed that ho
treated her as respectfully and lovingly
. --as any husband she ever saw.
Mrs. Savage testified to seeing two men
about 0 or 10 o'clock prowling about
Lauer's yard , on the night that Lauer
first shot at tlio burglar. She watched
them until they finally went away. They
were prowling about and she took them
for suspicious characters and perhaps
During this cross-examination Messrs.
Cowin and Thurston had a little un
friendly spat. General Cowin asked
Mrs. Savage a question which Mr. Tliurs-
ton objected to as "immaterial , unpro
fessional and Indecent. "
"I want that question answered , " de
manded General Cowin.
' 'Its no such a question us a gentleman
would ask , " retorted Mr. Thurston ,
Mr. Cowin turned half around and an
swered , "We'd practice a long time in
this court before we'd get such an ex
ample from you. "
"No , " sneered the other , "and I never
openly Insulted and brow-beat a lady ,
either. "
General Cowin said nothing , but went
on cross-examining the witness.
The question which Thurston objected
to was asked when Mrs. Savage testified
that When Lauer shot at the burglar , in
August , 1884 , she got up and went out
doors to see what the trouble was. Gen
eral Cowin asked her :
'Did you got up auit go out doors
in your night gown expecting to
meet two drunken men in a
quarrel or shooting at each other , be-
uausu you and your daughter were so
afraid of men ? "
The witness replied that she wanted tote
to goo what the trouble was. nnd therefore -
fore went out.
Mrs. Savage was then cross-examined
about tlui night of the tragedv. She
' testified that when she went into tliu
Laucr house after tliu shooting , she
. noticed the night wa dark. She noticed
no moon. It might havu been obscured.
It was with dilliculty ( hat shu picked her
way across to Lauer's houso.
Cross-examined again , Mrs. Savage
taitl that about 10 o'clock that night show
w the rclkctiou of Hallie Luuur's
shadow on the curtain. Slio also saw
what she supposed was Mr. Laucr stand
ing by the stair.
"You saw Mr. Laucr's form through the
curtain , did you ? " asked General Cowin.
"Yes. "
"Tim curtain was nearly white and so
thin that light passed through it easily
and without much obstruction. "
The witness hesitated and answered ,
"yes. "
On the night of the shooting Mrs. Sav
age tcstillcd , she was attracted to Mr.
Lauer's house by hearing the shot. She
heard voices in the yard , but heard no
noico in Lauor's house , though only
eighteen feet away so near that she
could hear everything that was said.
At this juncture , a stormy scene be
tween the attorneys for the date and the
counsel for defense , over the admission
of Mrs. Savage's testimony as to what
Mrs. Laucr had told her labout the llrst
hurtrlar. Judge Neville ruled out the
testimony and tlio defense took excep
tion.John A. McSliano was next called to
stand. Ho tcstslied that from the time of
Mr. and Mrs. Lauer's reconciliation up
to the period of the shooting , they were
always friendly.
"So far as you saw they were friendly
before the trouble , weren't they , "in
quired General Cowin.
"I guess they were , " wild Mr.

Hank Hippodrome.
There have been certain disclosures
made concerning the alleged fight be
tween Clew and llanlcy fit the exposition
annex , Thursday nicht , thr.t MO Calcu
lated to detract somewhat from the
boasted prowess of tlio "Champion of
Colorado. " Clew has neon held up by
ils backers and admirers over since lie
came to Omaha as a square man who
would not take part in a liippndroming
irrangomcnt under any circumstances ,
lie lias himself carded the fact that hems
ms been troubled by small fry pugilists
who have been trying to induce him to
make gate receipt fakes. His answer to
these people was that ho would light any
ICO pound man in the world for money
but would not fight for glory , The ad
mirers of such a spirit will doubtless be
surprised to learn that the match at tlio
exposition annex on Thursday night was
made under tlio following first'class hip-
podroming agreement :
_ Articles of agreement between John P.
low and Jack llanloy , March t > , 1S.ST ;
We both aereoto box liVe friendly rounds
on tlio evening of the 10th day of Mnreh , 18t > 7.
: ho receipts over anil above all expenses to
by evenly divided between us. Wo mutually
ajreo that Mr. Koloy. of Koley it Darst , and
.Mr. Kd Hothcry take charge of ! tlio door and
box olllee. Wo also agree to divide the re
ceipts before either of us appear oil the stage
to box. Wo agree to use six-ounce gloves.
JACK ( J. llANLl'.V ,
Previous to the signing of this agree
ment a "flash" set of articles had been
signed , in which it was stipulated that
Clew should forfeit $100 in event of his
failure to knock llanloy out in live
rounds. This money was to be placed in
.Jack Morrison's hands , but did not ma
terialize. The public was deceived lee
in regard to the manner in which tlio
match was brought about , and as it seems
to bo in the style now to expose the
crooked in sports , the facts may be
given. From Clow's card in the paper
it wii3 inferred that ho had made the
match to teach a lesson to some of tlio
small fry puirilists" who , ho alleged ,
had been bothering him. The facts snow
a very different state of affairs. A short
time before Hanlo.r had his match at the
with the "Marine " Clew
annex , approached
preached him and wanted to nuiKo a
match , llanley objected on the ground
that ho had one match on his hand al
ready and could not make another. Clew
then tried to induce llanley to postpone
the match with LuHlanchc and arrange
one with him. This llanley refused to do
and the matter was dropped until after
LaUlancho's visit to Ouuilia , during which
tlio match was made for the fight to a
finish between llanley and Lalilancho
which will take place to-morrow night in
St. Paul. Immediately after tins Clew
again went to llanloy and wanted to
make a match , llanlcy stated that on
account of his match with Lalilancho he
could not think of going into another
light. Then it was , according to the
statement of Hanloy and his backer , Ed
Holhery , that Clew proposed the hippo-
draining arrangement shown above.
Clew , it is assorted , begged of llanloy to
maka the match , that they would draw
a good house and that he needed
tlio money badly. After a good
deal of preliminary work the
match was made and the above agree
ment signed. Hanloy was m no condi
tion for the match and would not have
thought of entering it had lie an idea
that it was to bo anything different than
had been agreed. A few davs before the
light Clew gave it out among his friends
that ho was going after llanloy and
would try to knock him out. Hanluv
hoard of this and went to Clew and asked
him about it. Clew replied that ho had
been making such cracks but claimed
that it was done for the bcnolit of the
Houso. Ho assured Hanloy that they
would go on and make a lively mill that
would satisfy the house and result in a
draw. With this understanding llanloy
went into the ring in a condition that
would have warranted his being in bed.
Clew saw this and took a mean advan
tage of it by rushing llanloy and strikins'
him foul the first dash. The result is well
known. Clew succeeded in getting a
little cheap notoriety and some money
out of tlio fight and left llanloy in a very
embarrassing condition. There is no
question but that Clew would whip
llanley in a light to a finish and there is
no question but that ho could not stop
him in live rounds witii any kind of
Tlio nioyclo Tournament Ijust Night
A. Great Crowd.
The bicycle tournament at the exposi
tion building last nicht was a gVcat suc
cess , both so far as concerns the
merits of tlio different riders and tlio
attendance. That the audience was
largo One of 3,500 people was duo
partly to the immense amount of
free advertising that John S. Prince lias
received lately , and partly to the love of
the Omaha public for fair play. The
si/b of the audience was in fact a cmu
pleto vindication of Mr. Prince , and
shows how little stock Omaha people
take in the malicious and utterly ground
less attacks that have been made upon
him. Thi * is certainly gratifying not
011)3' ) to Mr. Prince but also to his friends ,
who rallied well to his support last night.
The first race was a mile dash between
two colored youths , John Hiccton and
The latter gave his opponent half a lap
start and lost. Time U:45. :
The second event was a ten-mile race
betweon-Charles W" . Asliintrur and Frank
Dingloy. During the first five miles
Dingloy spurted and gained over half a

however , by a tremendous spurt of spcei
made up the distance , and passing Ding-
ley , finished over a lap ahead of him
Time aifl'J. Dingloy was in bad shape
having failed to recover from the depressing
pressing effects of Ins snowball-Icicle ex
poriotico. Considering the condition he
was in ho made a remarkable showing.
It was nearly u quarter of 10 o'clock
when the two principal contestants o
thi ! evening , Prince and Kek , made theii
appearance on the track. They were
fitartcd on opposite Bides of tuu track-
on the north side andPrlnco on the south.
During the llrst seven miles which were
ridden extraordinarily fast , Kck gained
on Prince , getting almost within twenty
yards of his wheel , The lirst mile .being
accomplished in U:5l. : ! Prince' however ,
gradually pulled away from him ami
gained one lap. He finished the winner
in the tune of 1 hour , 7 minutes and 54
The race was the most exciting over
run on this trackand the crowd whooped
and yelled from the start. Even the
ladies contributed to the noise.
The following is self-explanatory :
We , the undersigned , desire to return our
thanks to the peopln of thN city for the very

Fred Itacck Killed Ily a Union Pacific
During the high wind that prevailed
yesterday afternoon Fred Racek met an
untimely death on the west end of the
Union Pacific bridsro. Ho was on his
way to his boarding house on South
street and was crossing the approach
to the bridge. Ho had his hat
pulled down over his ovcs to protect
them from the flying sand and was grad
ually feeling Ids way along the ties ,
when ho was struck by a passitur engine
and hurled from the bridge. He fell a
distance of nearly thirty foot and landed
on the pavement on the Sixth
street crossing. The cloud of
dust that was blowing at the
time so obscured the young
man that his presence on the track was
not observed by the engineer. Racok
was picked up and removed 'to St.
Joseph's hospital , where ho died at 5
o'clock. His back was broken by the
fall and he was otherwise cut and bruised.
The deceased was but sixteen years of
age , and has lived in Omnlia but a few
weeks. His parents live at Stanton ,
Neb. Ho has two brothers in Omaha ,

graphing department of the Herald. The
