"Harry , I'm done for. I'm good for llfo
In the pen. "
The speaker \vns Christopher Hcnson , n
linmUonic young soldier who Is a Hold mu-
ulcinn at Fort Omuhn. For sonic time ho
hao bccu engaged to a pretty and rcllned
uppcnrlng Otnnlin girl named Kunlco Mullcr
nnd their murrluga was to coino oil on next
Wednesday , Ills twenty-first birthday. This
morning ho received a letter from her and
when with throbbing pulse ho opened it ho
Vriw astounded to llml that It contained
ONLY A IMEtK OF atU'E.
From former conversations with bcr ho
knew that this was symbolic of im
end of tholr engagement. IIo rushed
to the depot near the fort
and took the first dummy for the city. On
the train ho happened to occupy the same
seat with Harry Hutlcr , son of Major Hutlor ,
of Fort Omaha , who Is engaged In the study
of law lu this city. The two parted at the
Webster street depot , young Hullcr little
dreaming of the tragedy that the day was to
develop lu which Hunson was the principal
actor , The young soldier half-craved started
for the home of his late ufll.mcod on Thir
teenth street. Near Thirteenth and Jones
ho spied her on the street car and ho Jumped
on board. Ho spoke to her twice hut re
ceived no answer Ho suddenly turned as
vvlHto as a sheet and drawing a revolver
from his pocket
HE ATTEMITKI ) TO HIIOOT.
Ilia agitation pnriilyred his strength
nnd ho was uuablo to pull the trig-
per. The persons in thu car were
horror-stricken and a number of gentle
men present jumped to their feet and wrested
the deadly weapon from the would-bo mur
derer. Ho jumped Irom the car and ran to
Harry Uu tier's office , room aa , Ware block.
1 11s exclamation on bursting into Harry's
oflico was as mentioned aboro that ho was
"dono for and for llfo In the pen. "
Ho. related the facts to young Butler and
appealed to him for help. The young legal
Bludcnt dressed the soldier in civilians
clothes so us to save him from arrest nnd
told him ho would as a friend go witn him
unil sec If ho could not effect some settle
TUB CAi'inoiors oinu
They happened to meet her on Fourteenth
nnd IJouglus , and she very willingly prom
ised to do what she could to suppress the
facts about the attempted murder in the car.
She said also that she was sorry she had
broken the news of her ciiaugc of mind to
htm in such a cruel manner. However , she
would not change her decision 'in regard to
her refusal to become Henscn's wife.
The soldier expressed his gratitude for her
leniency In not prosecuting him for his mur
derous act , but was still down-hearted over
her refusal to bccoino his wife. On their
way b.ick to Hutler's oftlce the soldier was
STOI'l'KI ) IIY Till1. I'OI.ICK
and charged with being tlio fellow who had
attempted to kill the young woman Inthocar.
Butler , however , was too quick wilted for
the officers nnd managed to throw them off
the track and shield his friend.
On teaching llutlcr's oflico , Hcnscn throw
himself down upon n sofu in an adjoining
room where it was supposed ho was taking a
nap. Uut a curious choking sound soon
brought Butler and another gentleman
named C.ipplngor Into that room. They saw
from his blue lips , inirplo linger nails and
general drowsiness that
HE HAH TAKUX SOME POISON.
On examining his loft hand they found In
thopnlmtho remnants of a powder. Dr.
Potts was called and ho pronounced It a casts
of poisoning. IIo applied ipecac and hypo
dermic injections but all to no purpose , i At
4 o'clock tha young soldier was dead. On
his person was found the following letter to
young Duller :
a TIIK LETTER.
Dear Harriet I thank you very much for
your kindness , and hope you will never bo in
this fix. I have coino to the conclusion to do
nway with myself , for life Is not worth living
for. Do not let my mother know about my

disease ; and , Harry , I ewe a good tea [ dcalj ,

Thu Commissioner's Meeting.
The county commissioners yesterday ap
proved the action of County Clerk Kocho in
employing extra hulp on the assessment
books , but said ho mustn't do so any more.
Mr. D. L. Shane presented his resignation
as general superintendent of the now county
hospital. His letter stilted that his private
busiues3ho ( is a contractor and builder ) is in
creasing so that ho fcols that ho cannot do
justice to the tux payers. The resignation
was referred to the committee on construc
The committee- tluaiu-o reported In the
findings of Mr. J. J. Points. , who examined
the reports of the county ofilcors , and the
committees report was adopted.
They approve the financial statement of

register "bo authorized to employ tit n
monthly salary of not more tliim f(10 such
additional assistants as may bo deemed nec
essary to perform cltlciqntly such work us Is
not provided for. " They uro also of the
opinion that when thcro uro appropriations

and that the foes should bo included In the
The liudiugs in the county clerk's report
were approved , and in the matter of making
copies of records the same opinion was ex
pressed as in the cnsoof the register of deeds.
The committee advised important changes
in the conduct of the shcnll's ofllco , and u
brief rcbiimo of the situation will make the
import of their recommendations clear. The
sheriff's report indicated about f3,500 in fees
us on the books nnd uncolleeted. The sheriff
is allowed W u day by the stnto for convoy
ing charges to the penitentiary or reform

inontB us part of tha perquisites of the olllco.
llo lias rnudu a contract with Sarpy county ,
which has no juil of Its own , to board and
ledge that county's prisoners atflpor day
per man. Ho has an arrangement to hold
prisoners for the United States courts at 70
( PIUS per day , and for transient prisoners
jailed hero en route to other points ho
charges $1. For the cignt months ending
January , 1S8S , the sheriff received from
these sources nearly f > 3100 ! , and ho has treated
the inonoy ns ono of the perquisites
of the ofllco. The committee think ho
should pay something for the use of the
county Jail uud the services of Jailor nnd
guards. They want the sheriff to divide , and
their idea for the future Is that the contracts
for keeping such prisoners bo inatlo with the
county , which will make the sheriff an allow
ance for board. Ho is now allowed 35 cents
for feeding the county's prisoners , and as ho
gets 70 cents to # 1 for the other prisoners a
division of half and half is suggested. The
sheriff has been charging a mllengo of 10
cents per tnllo for taking persons to Lincoln ,
mid Examiner Points raised the question
whether ho was entitled to moro than Jlvo
cents per mllo. The law is vaeuo. saying
that ho shall charge the same as In other llko
The committee recommended that the
sheriff bo uotUlcd that In the future ho will
bo expected as far as practicable , to collect
ofilcial fees in advance , uud when that Is Im
possible , that ho must require security for
their payment ; also that ho will bo hold rc-
sponslblo for fees remaining uncolleeted nt
the close of his term. The recommendation
does not Include fees duo from the city or
the country. The committee think the
sheriff has no legal or moral right to i.Tiposo
upon the county the burden of paying
sheriff's coats In civil cases. The committee
nro also of the opinion that $ J per day paid
the sheriff by the slate for taking prisoners
to tha penitentiary and children to the re
form school are fees of the sheriff'sofllce and
should bo reported as such to the commls.
sloners. The committee recommend that for
1&50-7-8 up to date , tha MUnty charge the
sheriff fair proportion of the
amounts received by him for boarding *
lodging and guarding United States prisoners ,
Sarpy county prisoners , and tr.iusc'ont pris
oners , which proportion is to bo a 'crmined
by the board uud the sheriff. Such compen
sation is fur rent of juil uud Hxturcs , for ex-
pcnso of repairs and for salaries of Jailor and
guards. The committee recommend un "un
derstanding" with the sheriff whereby In the
future ho shall pay to the county n tlxod per
centage ( say oO ) of the gross amounts ho ro-
calves for the boarding uud lodging of the
three classes of prisoners specllicd. The
question of thu mileage belonging to the
sheriff and his assistants In conveying insane
patients to Lincoln being n question of law
is referred to the county attorney. The po-
llco judge of the city is requested to note on
each mittimus issued from his ofljeo whether
the prisoner was charged with violating n
city ordinance or a state law.
The committee recommended the payment
of $1,1133 CO to William H. Ijums for fees as
clerk tit the September term of the district
court. The committee cut the claim ? 7S " 0.
A resolution was passed allowing the
county clerk to certify to the quarterly
vouchers for United States pensioners with
out making a charge , If ho choose to do HO.
A resolution to gr.ido ono-half of Thirty-
sixth street from Leaveiiworth to Park and
also Poppleton avenue from Thirty-sixth to
the county hospital was referred.

Mr. D. L. Shane's resignation ns general
superintendent of construction of the county
hospital for Insane was accompanied by the
simple statement that on account of the in
crease of his private business ho felt ho
could not do justice to the taxpayers. Mr.
Shane was soon by a HIK : reporter , but re
fused to give any reasons for his coui > o
other limn that stated in his letter to the
county commissioners. The gentleman Is a
good Icucor , but while ho would not make
any allirinations ho negatively made admis
sions which conllrm the belief that thcro
were reasons for his resignation that are
kept from the public. Mr. Shane was
guarded In his statements , but in u lapse
of his watchfulness ho inado the
remark that hi * "chief" reason was given in
his letter. In another unguarded moment ho
said that his other reasons were known to
the commissioners , and a statement would
como with better grace from them than from
himself. At another time ho Intimated that
the commissioners might fully explain his
position after taking final action on his resig
nation. Questioned as to the construction of
the hospital , Mr. Slinno said that it was not
a Iirst class job but was fair work of Its
kind. Asked us to whether thu contractors
hud tried to ovudo his instructions us super
intendent. Mr. Shane said : "Not all of
them. " Ho said ho had accompanied the
commissioners to Detroit to discuss the mat
ter with the architect. Questioned
as to whether Mr. Moyors displayed any
opposition to his superintendence. Mr.
Shane evaded the query. When asked what
lie would do if the commissioners refused to
accept his resignation , ho r.nitl ho would take
the matter under consideration.
The inference from the cross-examination
of Mr. Sbano is that ho has been hurrassed
and criticised In his work ; that , as n man of
independence and self respect , ho resigned
rather than miller the nunoynnco nnd In
dignity , and looks to the commissioners for
vindication. Mr. Shane is receiving J100 a
mouth for visiting the now hospital every day
or two , inspecting the construction , and in-
structlnghlsussi-stunt , Charles Koss , upon the
details to bo watched by the latter. The
trip takes Mr. Shane thrco or four hours. As
a contractor ho Is employing forty or fifty
hands , nnd the time token from their man
agement is given as the ostensible rrasou for
