Ho Attempt * to Shoot Her In A Thir teenth Street Car nntl ICnilH Hln Sorrow Hy Taking n Dose A Rolillcr Itnvre "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 ment with 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.

THE COUNTY'S ' FIVE FATHERS The Business They Transacted , at Yesterday's Meeting. THE SHERIFF'S SIDE MONEY. The CoiiimihHlonci-'s Tlilnk the Tnx Payers Should Have a Share of Some ol' tin ; rorqiiislles Coin- IIIK MrColmrn's Way. 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 tion. tion.Tho 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 the register of deeds except nn item of ? 100 iu February paid to S. S. Auuhmoedy. They said arounable to the they are justify employ ment nnd the payment of two deputies at the same time , " They recommended that the 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 for certified copies of records in the oflico of the icgister , such copies should bo mndo by the register or his assistants , that they should bo charged for us provided by law and that the foes should bo included In the register's rciwrts. 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 school , und ho has been taking such pay- 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 cases * 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. The appropriation bill from the general fund for July aggregated ? l-151 ; from the road fund $ .3,7-11 ; ironi the hospital fund $10,748. 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 his resignation.

The latter was repairing u loaded rlllonnd It wns discharged by accident. Pries was dangerously wounded but has n fighting chance to recover.
