When tlio district court opened yesterday
( lie room wai crowded with spectators to hear
the evidence iignlnM , Sum Stevenson tlio
alleged rapist. Miss Lulu Kspoy was
the first witness called , nnd
her evidence was of the most sensational
character , nnd was told in tin Impressive nil
oftimc.s dramatic manner. Miss Kspuy is
rather pretty nnd possesses u line form. She
was neatly dressed in black , the same diess
she wore on the night of her memorable
drive with tlio prisoner. Her testimony was
given in u straightforward manner , and once
or twice on cross-examination she broltc
into tears. Her testimony was very damag
ing to the prisoner , and her tale of his us.igo
of her was simply horrible. Hut It must bo
said that Miss lispcy made an almost fatal
admission on cHm-cxamlnatlon. After re
counting the details of n cruel assault , almost
unequalled In criminal history , she admitted
that when she and Stevenson arrived homo
Bho Ijlsscd him good night. This created a
The policy of the defense was outlined by
the cross-examination , mid will undoubtedly
bo that her character is not of the best , and
that she 1ms associated with bad women ;
that Stevenson and her had some words over
, , another girl of whom Lulu was jealous , and
that lie simply shipped her.
Miss Kspcy's story , as told jn court yes
terday , Is as follows : She has lived
In Omaha over two years , and form
erly worked at tlio Canlleld house in
the capacity of waitress. About two
yeas ago she and one Maggie Kowley went
for a drive , and on North Sixteenth sti cot
met Sam Stevenson and Dirk 11111. The
quartette then drove into the country and re-
innlncil there until dark. She subsequently
met him at a ball and once at a picnic. Sat
urday night , October - - , nho met Stevenson
near where she now lives , and ho asked her
to take a drive. Slie went Into the house ,
dressed and came out. Then they drove up
and down Sixteenth street several times , and
jlnally out to Dick Hill's place. Not finding
Hill there they started back home and met
him on Sixteenth street. He invited them to
return with him , Stevenson turned to her
and asked her If she wanted to go. She
said no , hut he K'wiui turning the horse.
She protested and attempted to turn the
horse by grabbing the reins. Ho persisted ,
niul forcibly had his w.iy. Arriving at Hill's ,
Stevenson got out , and she alighted for u
moment to look for an earring she had
dropped. Having found it , she got
hack In the buggy and Stevenson went in
side. In a few minutes he returned and they
ngaln drove olT. Stevenson stated that ho
desired to see n man further til ) the road.
Soon tile" I'.ri'ivcd in a lonely Held and sud
denly ho seized her and throw her out. She
made a clutch at him while rnlliiig and acci-
dcntly grasped the revolver ho had in his
belt. Ho immediately jumped out and threw
himself upon her and struck her three blows
with his list , Inllieting severe wounds. Then
she attempted to scream and he tilled her
mouth with dirt. Wrenching the pistol from
her ho said that if she resisted ho would kill
her and trncK her three times with the butt
end of it causing her to become senseless.
What followed who does not know until she
felt herself being lifted into the carriage.
Then they stinted back and when they
reached Hill's place she went into a bedroom
nnd washed her face three times. Then they
returned to town and at a drug store corner
of Sixteenth and i Capitol avenue ho pro
cured hur some medicine and then they
went to her home. Miss * Kspoy
Btated that the prisoner told her not to dare
to tell any of her friends. Prior lo this on
the road out ho particularly inquired other
if she had any relatives in the city and she
replied that nho had not. She also stated
that tlio hot-so was a very spirited animal.
When she arrived homo she informed her
friends , Mr. and Mrs. frank Anderson , of
the alT.iir. A physician. Dr. Kalph , was
called and her wounds dressed. Miss Kspoy
also stated that her dress and other clothes
wei o towi.
The cross-examination called out several
impoitaut admissions. First , that the hor--o
was so wild and spirited that she was afraiil
of him , and yet during the violent struggle in
the Held the horse stood stark still. Sec
ondly , that Stevenson entered the bed cham
ber at Hill's with her and assisted her in
milking her toilet. Thirdly , that while it
was a cloudy night she could distinctly see u
barb wire fence from forty to lifty feet away.
Fourthly , thafshe kissed her assailant good
night alter arriving home.
On the whole Miss Kspoy made a credit
able witness in the three hours of the ordeal
was piompt In her replies , and did not con
tradict herself save in u few statements.
City Physician Ralph was the next witness.
Hotcstillcd that ho was called to attend Miss
Kspoy. He found her greatly prostrated and
badly bruised about the head and shoulders.
Ho corroborated Miss llspey's evidence as to
Mrs. Fannie Anderson of 001 ! South
Klovcnth street , with whom MlsslCspey lived
lit the time of the assault was next called.
Her ovldenco on direct examination lully
corroborates Miss Kspoy.

No ofticial announcement has yet been
made regarding the fast irittim on the Chicago
cage Milwaukee & St. Paul or I ho Chicago ,
Uock Island & Pacille railroads , save that the
oniclals are still busily engaged In working
upon the tables lor the new speeders. A
Milwaukee representative yesterday said
Unit the eastern roads were now waiting for
the Union Pacific , which had more to do In
the matter than other roads , The trains , ho
mild , would not run earlier than next Sun
day , oven If they should run at that time.
He did not thinl : that they would follow the
ftchcdnloof the H. &M. between Chicago and
Ounilm , because the time of that toad leav
ing here , i\M \ in the afternoon was too early
to give * satisfaction to traveling men , who
were thus compelled to break in upon
tlio afternoon and leave work undone
to catch an early train. The
train from Chicago , arriving hero at
live o'clock in the mornjng , also was not the
most accommodating thing in the world , oven
If passengers wcro not allowed to remain in
their berths until eight o'clock. The cur was
side-tracked , sometimes milled up and down
u couple of times and often set near an en
gine which \vus blowing off Us steam. If n
man wanted to sleep , his next neighbor
to get up and so on , the plan would not be u
success. All this could bo obviated by hnv
Ins Iho train stint later from this city , which
ho thought they would. The train would
probably leuvo hero at sovcn o'clock In the
evening and reach Chicago , say about cloven
o'clock next day. That would enable a trav
eling nmn to llnlsh his business here mill
reach Chicago in time for dinner , a little rest ,
and then a lull afternoon for work , Hcslilcs
It brought him nearer to nil the principal con
nections going cast from Chicago , not one of
which left until the uftcinoon. Thc&o coining
fiut trains would net us supply agencies to
the Union Pacille and this fact would rentier
it ueco sary for them to work in connection

Police Ofllcer George W. Uayworth has

is but little doubt that investigation of Die
outrage with which ho is charged will result
in his permanent letiremcnt fiom the force.
Just what his offense was can better bo un
derstood by the story of Miss M. L. Wilson ,
u comely young dressmaker who resides at
the northeast corner of Thirteenth street
and Capitol avenue :
' 1 came from Sheridan , la. , " began the
young lady , "nearly live years ago , and
began the vocation of dressmaker. I am
well known to many of the best families in
the city. Monday afternoon I was sitting
at my window busy with my work. Sud
denly I observed a man standing on the side
walk and staring at me. 1 sat still a mo
ment thinking , that ho might not mean any
thing and would soon move on. lint ho
continued to stare at mo in uti insulting way.
1 got up and moved out of sight , A moment
later I was stai tied on hearing my door open ,
and glancing up , saw the same man's
head thrust in and his eyes were
lixed upon me. I was frightened : I thought
ho was drunk , but I nroso hastily and , approaching
preaching the door , I said : "What do you
wnnti'1 Ho said : "Don't bo afraid of me ;
I'm coming in " I asked him what ho wanted
and ho replied "Something , " and ho fright
ened me so that 1 grasped the door knob and
tried to push the door closed , tolling him that
ho could not como in. Ho then rudely shoved
the door back , almost pushing mo to the floor ,
and walked in. Uy tins time I was nearly
frantic. 1 backed away from him , holding my
hands up to keep him off , all the time
beseeching him to go out and asking him
what ho wanted , Ho said , 'Uon't make sue )
n fuss : I've got a right to come in here. ' J
said , 'No , you haven't ; who arc you , nn < '
what do you want ! ' 'That doesn't malto any
difference,1 ho replied : * I have a right to como
hero and I am heto , so what are you going to
do about itC 1 had backed to the side door
on Capitol avenue by this time , ho advancing
slowly upon mo. . ' . i I reached the door , i
said : 'You have no right here , whoever you
me ; 1 don't know you , and you have mudo
n mistake ; you have up right to
enter n lady's room In this manner.1
'Yes , 1 have,1 said he , 'I have a right to enter
anybody's room I want to. and 1 don't have
to knock , either , 1 am a police olllcer,1 and ho
pulled aside his coat and displayed his star ,
No. : w. I told him that it did not matter
whether ho was n police olllcer or not , ho had
no right to como into my room in that wnv ,
and again I asked him what ho wanted. Ho
said : 'Just keep still , 1 am a police ofllcer ,
and have n right to go into any
woman's chamber,1 mul then as ho took
another step toward me , I ran Into the
street screaming at , the top of my voice. A
gentleman , happening along , ran to mo and
asked mo what was. the matter , and I told
him there was n man in my room nnd I
thought ho must bo crazy. The gentleman
told mo to remain where I wart and ho ran
down to the police station and inn few
moments icturnod to our house. The man
was still in my room , and the two ofllccrs
went in , talked to him a moment , mul then
they wont off together , without offering any
explanation to mo at all. "

Of our customers , after seeing the incomparable bargains we offerecl during the last two
weeks express astonishment at the prices. The secret is simply this. The warm weather and
late season have had a very depressing effect upon the wholesale trade. Manufacturers are
overstocked and discouraged and the same goods which a few weeks ago they intended and
expected should bring them a fair profit , they are now ready to sacrifice at almost any price.
This is the chance for the retailer. It is merely a question of who can use the quantities. The
firm that does a large business can take advantage of such opportunities. We are in this hap
py position. Our ample resources enables us to buy in enormous quantities for cash ; we sell
on same terms and the quick return of the money makes the smallest profit satisfactory. Any
one can see the force of these remarks by coming and pricing our goods.
Another lot of those fine Chinchilla Satin Lined Overcoats at $14.5O. The first lot sold so quick that during
for less than twice what wo ask for it , $14.50.
Another lot of Overcoats to which we call attention is a splendid Shetland , lined with double warp Italian satin
sleeve lining , silk velvet colar and corded edge. These we have in blue and Oxford colors , sixes 3i ! to 38. It is an elegant
coat for a young man , very nobby and of splendid cut. Wo oiler it at $8.90 and guarantee the real retail value of it to bo
at least $15.
In Single Pants , we make for this week the following remarkable offers :
One lot strictly all wool , heavy winter weight , grey striped Cassimere Pants , well made at $1.50 , fully worth $3.
One lot heavy all wool Fine Cassimere Pants , in dark neat striped patterns at $2.10 , worth $4
One lot very fine silk mixed Cassimere Pants at $3.50 , worth $5.50.
One lot of elegant Worsted Goods , in choice patterns , at $3.90. These last are equal to any custom-made pants and
have never been offered for less than § 0 to $7.
Remember that in our Boys'and Children's department can be found suits and overcoats at
about one half their real value and for which we challenge comparison.
In our Hat and Cap department , we offer a large assortment of fur and other winter caps , far
below the prices of others. Genuine imported Scotch caps , high crown , at 35c ; sold everywhere
at 60c to Toe , Good heavy knit caps , turban style , men's and boys' sizes at 30c. Jersey caps ,
silk lined , men's and boys' sizes at 4Oc , which cannot be bought elsewhere for less than 75c to $1.
In our Glove department , we carry the largest assortment of winter gloves and mitts and offer
some big drives.
Good heavy knit wool mitts , men's sizes 2Oc , boys' sizes 15c.
Very heavy best fulled wool mitts at 4Oc and 45c ; sold by other dealers for 75c.
Good lamb lined kid gloves at 5Oc , which would be cheap at $1.
