Lincoln News.
Iu the district court yesterday the motion
for a rcheaiing in the Ucers murder trial was
argued before Judge Chapman by Mr. J. B.
Strode , attorney for Ueers. Mr. Strode
brought up n number of points on which he
claimed the was entitled to a now
trial. One of these questioned the compe-
.toncy of certain jurors who were challenged
for cause but admitted. Especial attention
was given to ono of the court's instructions
in the case which was in effect that unless
the defense proved beyond a reasonable
doubt that the prisoner was insane , the jury
should find for the state. Judge Chapman
overt tiled the motion for a new trial and
Beers was called into court to receive his sen-
tcnco. He appeared before the bar calm nnd
Indifferent , without being apparently affected
by the solemn , surroundings. When ques
tioned in the jail a few days ago he stated his
willingness to die , avcring that ho would bo
till the sooner in the pioscnco of the girl J.hat
he loved and had Killed. In response to'tho
question ot the judge if ho had anylhing to
say \ > by sentence should not bo pronounced ,
Hoers replied In a firm voice , " 1 have noth
ing to say. " Judge Chapman then said :
"You have been convicted of the crime of
murder in the first degree , and It becomes
my duty to pronounce the sentence of the law
upon you. You doubtless by this time leal-
izp the enormity of jour crime , oven if yon
did not contemplate It.s fearful consequences
at the time you dcstrojed the life of jour in
nocent victim. 1 would it wcro possible ,
sitting hoio as Judge of this court , with this
fearful responsibility resting upon me , to
know the motive which piomptedyou to com
mit this crime , but it is not permitted mo to
open the closed book of your life and read
Irom that ilitiU chapter known only to your
self. I can only know what eye witnesses of
thu Iragecy lolato under the solemnitj of an
oath. How you beat down an innocent , de
fenseless young woman without cause , ami
there bend ing over her prostrate feint , with
a pistol pressed agalnsl her head , sent its
deadly contents cr.isnlng through her brain.
I have only the story of these witnesses and
your own substqucnt admissions as my gnido
to read your purjioso and know your motive.
That your crime was premeditated , jou
admit. That jou purchased the revolver
with the intention to kill and murder
/ Johanna Augusta SoitToit iou have
admitted to several IMMSOIIS ; that
you. deliberately selected the Oc
eanian mu\ enticed your victim from the
place of her employer by the means of a letter
written by youisulf nnd to which you signed
her old mother's name , you also admit ; that
you watched for her and intercepted her on
her return from that visit , Is iu pioof ; and
that you then * , liken very fiend , assaulted
and murdered her whom jou professed to love
seems incredible , yet such Is the fact. You
may have Imagined she had wionged sou by
refusing to become jour wife , yet the evi
dence shows you hud seduced her In her Inno
cent girlhood days anil cast a blight upon her
humble name which would ever bo a re-
in-oach. You had wronged her , and hero In
her adopted home , when she was earning a
livelihood by honest labor , you have bet
added to jour sin by Hiking her life. In view
of those admitted fuels , yourcrhiiobut grows
iu lw enormity. You have had ublo counsel
who have Interposed every defense
within their fcach In your behalf. Coun-
el for. the state has been liberal
In allowing you to offer testimony which It

estly and patiently considered the
same , and upon that evidence
have found j'ou guilty of murder. The evi
dence in this cnno unquestionably sustains
the verdict , nnd no one , I think , interested in
the personal welfare of the clti/cn nnd the
ptcscrvation of human life can remain in
different in the presence of a crime such as
you stand convicted of in this community.
Painful as the duty is , however much I
would that it had fallen to the lot of another ,
that duty cannot bo now evaded by mvsclf ,
nnd all that now remains for mo to do in
currying out the plain letter of the law is to
pronounce the sentence ' of death upon j'ou.
The time of sontc'nco I have placed at u
jwriod beyond the limit llxed by the law , and
mj earnest hope is that j'ou may Improve the
few days so given you In preparation for the
great change which so soon awaits you.
The sentence of the court is , "that you ,
Henry Beers , be taken from hence and kept
in solitary confinement in the county Jail of
Lam-aster county until Friday , the lilth day
ol April , lbt > 8 , on which day , between the
hours of 10 o'clock a. m. and II o'clock p. in.
of said day , j on bo taken from thence by the
sheriff of Lancaster county to a place pre
pared bj' him , and that you there bo hanged
by the nock until you nro dead , and that you
pay the costs of this prosecution. "
Thu large number in the couit room lis
tened with the closest attention to the words
of the judge. Following the sentence Hceis
retired with the sheriff to the ante-room ,
where ho eulinlj' lighted a cigar and pi o-
eecded to smoke with all the coolness and indifference -
difference that he has manifested throughout
the case. He was visited at the Jail after his
leturn to that place , but he had nothing
whatever to saj' .

The argument was hugely of the tenor of ar
guments herctofoio in this case befoio the
board of transpoitution , except on the fact of
Juiisdiction , jvhich the court has compelled
the raihoad atlornojs to admit. A decision

The Trouble Hctwqcn Contractors
Still Continues. , Col. , Dec 3. [ Special Telegram
the 13iu. : ] Matters at the state capital do
not seem to bo ncaring a solution. Tito
sheriff is watching the building material for
the contractor's creditors and Superintendent
Gciney and Inspector Miller arc watching it
in the interests of the state. Contractor
Hichardson went to Omaha yesterday to try
to get some understanding for settlement
with the Union Pacific on their claim for
hauling stone which is in the neighborhood of
f2'XX ) ( ) . Ho says that the manager of the
Union Pacific stone departmenttoldhiinsomo
years ago that they must have the contract to
furnish the capitol building stone and inti
mated u low offer to get it ; also that the
contractor based his estimates on this
offer and was thereby enabled to
get the contract. A talk with one or two of
the capitol manageis discovers Mr. Uiclmrd-
son to bo in an unpleasant situation finan
cially , and the holding of his bondsmen to
complete the contract at the price agreed.
They cannot help the contractor beyond liv
ing up to the agreement of the state , and are
not disposed to assume any lespousibility for
his shortsightedness in the contract. The
board is trying to avoid all trouble and scan
dal and to facilitate the work. It is said that
if Mr. Hichardson cannot secure financial aid
he is bankrupted.
No Apprehension in Mexico Over a Iln-
vic\v of the CUHC.
CITY op MI\ICO : ( via Galveston ) , Dec. 3.
In government circles there Is no appiehon-
sion of difficulties with the United States over
a review of the .Cutting ccse. The United
States made a demand on the Mexican gov
ernment several weeks ago in a friendly man
ner , suggesting , in order tn prevent fuluro
entanglement and the rupturing of the good
relations at present existing between the two
countries , that Chihuahua and ether states of
this republlo maintaining the doctrine of extra
territorial Jurisdiction , should repeal the law
us In conflict with the established principle of
international law. Indemnity in the Cutting
C.HO was also suggested without a specific
sum being mentioned. The question is ono
devoid of personal considerations. Mexico
showed no disposition to avoid a fi loudly dis
cussion of thu point of international law In
volved. The matter , it. is said , will po
tluough the diplomatic channels. Sutl.sfuo

A Collation ol' Views I'Voni Several
IjeailiiiK Congressmen.
Toi.r.Do , O. , tee. U. This evening's Blade
published letters from cightj' members of
congiessin reply to queries about revenue
reform. Neat lj'all the answers admit the
necessity of revenue reduction bj" from
$ . - > ( ) , < X)0lH)0 ) ) to $ H ) ( ) , < XX,000 ) , but there is great
diversity as to how it is to bo effected. The
democratic revenue reformers strongly urge
the i eduction of the tariff on all articles that
can be called necessaries of llfo and generally -
orally favor the i etentlon of internal revenue
taxes , with the exception of tobacco.
Republicans ami liundall u rule ,
insist upon the letontiolinf lr tariff cxcopjt
upon sugar , and advocate un abolition oi
neaily all international revenue taxation , the
most common exception buing whisky. The
moio pronounced protectionists advocate the
entire reiwal of the sugar duty and the pay
ment of bounties to sugar-growers. There is
a general expression among republicans and
some western democrats in favor of enlarged
expenditures for coast defenses ana new
navy , river and harbor improvements. The
postal telegraph also has inuny supporters.
