The Ilof-tiH Land Onino.
Louis I'nsoo , cosmopolitan , nnd J , L. Keith ,
of Lincoln , were nrrcstcd in that city Thurs
day on a charge of obtaining money under
false pretenses , through the almost antedilu
vian bogus land racket. 13oth men In the
custody of Deputy United States Marshal
Hastings were brought to this city yesterday
morning nnd lodged in Jnll. They will appear
before the grand Jury of the United States
district court this afternoon , Pasoo , the
leading genius In the swindle , Is a large , cor
pulent , muscular man , with long black hair
worn after the fashion of the plainsman and
guide of twenty years ngo. buckskin shirt ,
corduroy breeches and broad sombrero. In
fact I'asoo claims to have seen considerable
service us a scout and was for years
the sldo partner of Omohundro , or Texas
.lack. Hut enough of his past history. Three-
weeks ago he appeared in Lincoln , and mndu
the acquaintance of Jerry Sawdcy , u special
.policeman. Ho accosted Sawdcy on the
score of a Grand Army badge the latter wore ,
and Impressing him with Urn idea that hctoo.
had gone through the war , the two enjoyed
themselves for some thno as only old soldiers
can , exchanging their experiences of the. Held ,
the march and the camp. Finally Pasoo in
formed Sunday that ho was a claim locator ,
nnd kncwof some Verydeslrablo landthat could
bo pre-empted within the confines of Gage
and Seward counties. Thcso valuable tracts
had been condemned by the railroads , but by
some technical error In the condemnation
proceedings , had reverted to the government.
He claimed to "stand in" solid with the gov
ernmental authorities who had Immediate
supervision over these tracts , and pictured
In glowing terms what u golden op
portunity was thus afforded for some ono to
invest and speculate with a limited amount of
capital. After a long and confidential talk
over the matter Sawdcy was finally induced
to look up a couple of ambitious friends with
some ready cash and take up three home
steads , Tasoo tellin Sawdoy ho ought to bo
slick enough to make the two friends ho took
into the scheme with him pay for his. That
evening Thomas Caralmn and A. J , Hyatt
were Induced to go into the venture , and the
next day tlio entire party left for VVymoro.
Hero they hired n team and drove into the
country fifteen or eighteen miles and located
thu claims. The next day they returned to
Lincoln , and going before u notary , papers
were duly made out which invested I'asoo
with the authority to apply for the necessary
papers at the land department. Sawdoy ,
Cnrulmn and Hyatt defrayed all the
expenses of the trip , the lawyers'
fee , and loaned I'asoo $100 besides.
which ho asfured them should bo deducted
from the cost of securing the transfer
Thursday morning those official documents
arrived , C. O. 1) . , with & 10 duo on each etor
atfyuinall. They wcro not immediately taken
out , however , and at noon u couple of
gentlemen from this city , and two or three
parties from Hnrlan , la , , arrived at Lincoln
especially to look into the validity of similar
titles which they had purchased at these
respective cities. All the parties met
nt the land oflico at the same
time , and the Omahans and the lowans
made the fact known to the Lincoln it es that
they too had operated the one-armed , long
haired Pasoo. This disclosure filled the at
mosphere with the fragrance of a good sized
rat , and Sawdoy and his friends hurried oil to
the ( Japitol hotel to see Pasoo and keep him
in sight until they were satisfied of the valid
ity of their claims. I'asoo was as nonchalant
as an oyster , and never indicated by word or
deed that ho suspicioned that Sawdoy nnd his
friends suspected him of any smooth work.
They asked Ijiui'to accompany them to the
land department , but ho said that was use
less IIH Hcceivcr Ditvii * was out of the city
and would not return until this evening and
It would bo impossible to establish the record
in this particular matter until ha was pres
ent. Ho then urged them to accompany him
to Seward andlnspcct tholandandwishingto
delay hint as long as possible they consented.
Mr. Hyatt , however , in the meantime , was
given the tip by Sandey , who told him to
hurry round to the land department and see
if Mr. Davis was there , or away as Pasoo
said ho was. Hyatt called at the land department -
partmont at once and all his suspicions wcro
confirmed , us Mr. Davis was at his desk as
usual. Ho quickly stated the case , end as
quickly the receiver pronounced all the titles
worthless , at the same time declaring that
there was no government land in either
Gage or Seward counties open to pre-cnip1
When Hyatt returned to the rnpltol ho was
accompanied by DoputyUnited StatcsMarshal
Hastings , armed with a warrant , and a half
hour fater the ex-scout and old soldier ,
Pasoo , was behind the bars of the Lincoln
Jail. .1 , L. Keith , who acted as Pasoo's secretary -
rotary in drawing up the papers , was also
gathered in and brought hero withtho princi
pal tills morning. Notwlthstandingthis bogus
land transfer and pre-empting fraud Is an old
and worn out racket , and has swindle indeli
bly stamped all over the face of it. I'asoo is
a very astute artist , and United States Mar
shal Uierbower intorms the HUB reporter
that lie has been wonderfully successful and
his dupes are innumerable. He had at least
ten or liftcon other Lincolnites on the string ,
ullof whom would have pre-empted this
week had the scheme not been exposed when
it was.
D. O. Freeman Flics tlio City Lhjuor
and Drug ; Failure * .
The business career of D. O. Freeman , com
mission man , 413 South Eleventh street , has
como to a close , by his sudden flight from
the city. Ho leaves obligations of various
amounts , some of which will prob.ibly bo set
tled. while for a settlement of the others , the
creditors will bo compelled to rustic.
Ho commenced on a capital of
about 1,500 , then borrowed from
his mother , later from the Nebraska Na
tional bank , which at ono tlmo allowed him
to overdraw to the extent of between { 400
and fVX ) . At the tlmo of his dlsiipp-aranco ,
by way of satisfying this obligii ion , lie
assigned to the bank Ids accounts to bo col
lected , which it is thought will so. a the
bank though some doubt Is entertainc to
whether it enables the conslgnu to
bo paid. Freeman has secured hU mother
by transferring to her. a couiilo of
horses , a wagon and a carriage which ho had

to * 300 are A. H. Hremcr & Co , of Chicago ,
Stanley & Co , , U. Salmon , of this city ; S.

stock , book accounts , etc. , amounted to
fXMQO. His liabilities are only half this , but
bad debts and an account of nearly $3,000
with P. H. Maguire has temporarily em
barrassed him. Connolly says that for this
$3,000 account against Maguire ho was forced
to take cither n $0,000 mortgage or nothing.
Ho accepted the mortgage , but
it was broken by' ' Magulro's
creditors on the ground that it was
fraudulent. This unexpected loss crippled
him , but ho hopes to inakusomo arrangement
whereby ho can resume business again soon ,

to all who may desire to attend the conven
tion. With a population of over 100,000 ,
Omaha to-day is the best paved city in the

How It Affects Property Values , and
How It in Bring ; Assailed.
Arthur O'Malley , a wholesale liquor dealer
of Dubuque , la. , is in the city on a visit to
his daughter , Mrs. Kennedy. Ho is one of
the best established gentlemen of his busi
ness in that state. Ho was mot yesterday
by n Bun reporter and questioned upon the
effects'which the prohibitory law hud In the
state beyond the Missouri.
"Tho fact is , " ho said , "that prohibition is
enforced in nearly all save the river counties.
In the latter , and especially in the place in
which I live , the business is done about the
same as you do it here , In nn open manner.
In the interior , many who are pronounced
prohibitionists drink their whisky , and many
who nro not prohibitionists are nblo to get
all they want through the medium of
the drug stores. Thcso sell liquors In pints
and quarts and other quantities , and their
owners are getting rich on the business ,
though the stuff they sell is of the vilest char
acter. Prohibitionists , who could , not con
sistently purchase whisky , r ouivo it all the
same. It is shipped to them under various
guises , sometimes-us this , sometimes as an
other thing , fruit and such us that , and the
deception is never noticed. As regards the
constitutionality of certain features of the
prohibitory law. the matter was to bo passed
upon by the United Stateu supreme court as
soon as that body-has disposed of the Chicago
anarchists cases. But I have not heard that
they have yet pronounced an opinion. "
"How about the present campaign ? "
"It is being carried on in a very warm
manner. There is a class of people
there known as independent republicans.
Some of them are as strongly opposed to
prohibition us aru the democrats , who have
announced themselves hostile to the
movement. Others are developing an antag
onism to it based upon the destruction it has
wrought upon pro | > orty values and mechan
ical enterprises. Many of the latter class hate
to oppose prohibition , but they arc compelled
to do so by circumstances. In DCS Moines
and other interior points , the value of prop
erty has decreased so much that land
which was formerly valued at $225 per front
foot , for example , cannot now bring $75 for
the same amount. This fact is telling upon
the prohibition vote and compelling many
of the people , who voted for it to Join hands
with the democrats , to defeat the prohibitory
law. It is quito a warm campaign , but
whether wo will bo nblo to elect enough leg
islators to repeal the law is something , of
course , which I can't tell. "
