Nr.miARKA CITY , Neb. , Juno a ) . [ Special
Teleeratn to the Br.K.J Last nitlit : , while the
guards the deputy shcrllf and his assist
ants were asleep , Quln Bohnnan , who mur
dered Charlie Cook at Wavcrly , Neb. , and
who was confined In our jail awaiting the
action of the United States supreme court to
see whether ho should have a new trial or
not , mnde irood his escape , and Is now a free
man , The guards wcro sleeping on thu In.
side of the corridor , and It being Impossible
L . to open tin ; gates and doors from without , It
[ * it looks very suspicious and the feeling hero Is
that there must have been treachery done.
The city Is quite excited , and upon the sher
iff offering a reward squads of men are now
out searching for him , but the majority of
the people are Inclined to believe he has gone
never to return. In his bed was
found a dummy , and so well
was It put together that the county
judge had to feel ot It to believe It was not
a human being. The bird must have tlown
early In the night and wns not dlecovered
unt > l breakfast time this morning. It re
mains a mystery how ho secured other clothes
which ho must have done In order to use his
old ones for a dummy. The shcrllT of Lan
caster county , where the crime was com
mitted , has offered n reward of 8100 In addi
tion to the others. As the day rolled on the
feeling grew more bitter regarding our
criminals , and there may bo a picnic in store
for those left behind.
NiniiASKA : CITY , Neb. , June 23. [ Special
Telegram to the Br.n.J When Jailer McCal-
lum made his rounds this morning of the
prison cells , no response came from that of
Quin Buhnnnn. Fiom appearances the
prisoner was In bed , and wns at first thought
to be dead , but Investigation disclosed the
startling fact that Bohanan had escaped dur
ing the night , and had loft a dummy In his
bed. No trace of any kind can bo found as
to how ho made his escape. The jail Is a very
strong one , and BO arranged that a prisoner
could not liberate himself from thu Inside ,
even If he had keys , and he must have had
assistance fiom the outside. Several years
nco Bohanan attempted to bribe a former
jailer for his release , but his scheme was dis
covered In tiuio to bo fmstrated. Tlio
sheriff has wired nil over the country ,
and all efforts will bo used for his
recapture , but there IH very little hope , ns
few believe Bohaiian would ever bo taken
nltve , judging from his character and the
hopelessness of his case. Great excitement
prevails and particulars are meagre. Bohanan
was under sentence of death , awaiting the
decision of the United States supreme court.
Dick Glockc , guard at the jail , was aucstcd
to-night for letting Bohanan out of jail. The
other prisoners nil assort that Glocko opened
the doors about 0 o'clock last night and saw
Bohanan walk out. It is supposed that he
did the work for a money consideration from
Uolinnnn's friends on the outside.

LINCOLN , Neb. , June 23. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKK 1 Tlio talk on the streets
to-day Is the escape of Quln Bohnuan , who
broke j ll at Nebraska City last
night , the news ot which reached
this city this morning. George Cook ,
brother of the man murdered by Bohanan at
Waverly , oilers S'XW reward for Bohanan's
captnra nnd Hhurllf Melid : has telegraphed
the sherlu"of Otoe county that ho will per
sonally add 9100 to the reward offered. The
commissioners of this county. In which the
murder was committed , were discussing the
question of offering a reward ou the part
of Lancaster county , but have not yet
acted. It Is remembered that at Bohnnan's
trial five or six men from Missouri were
present watching the proceedings as Bohau-
nn'.s friends , and the Impression among
those acquainted with the inside facts Is that
old friends on the out ldo have holpud secure
Ills escape from thu jail.

Early publishes a reply , In which he says :
"Hosser has heretofore shown his utter dis
regard for truth In some of the publications
he has made inregard to some of the opera
tions of the army of northern Virginia , and
especially those in my command in the val

falsity of many of his statements. Having
figured extensively as a falsifier of history ,
ho has recently appeared In another role , that
