Thn Arnolil Murtler Case.

BRE. ] The Arnold murder case came up before
fore the district court of ScotU Bluff county

The counsel for the defendant , Judge Hoist
and Hsnry St. Haynor , illod a pica in abate
ment to the jurisdiction of the court under
the Indictment found by tno grand jury of
Cheyenne county last December before the
division of the old county at Cheyenne , of
which Scott's Bluff county at that time
formed a part. The prosecution was repre
sented by County Attorney Judge William
Hicliardson and Hon. F. J. Foss , of Crcto ,
who filed a replication to the ploaof the de
fense , alleging that the plea sot up is no de
fense to the jurisdiction , Heist and Haynor ,
relying upon the fourteenth amendment to
the federal constitution , raised a very Inter
esting constitutional question , which , they
contend , goes to ttic question that an indict
ment returned by the grand jury of a county
which is afterwards divided and the cntrio
Is ullngcd to have been committed in the ter
ritory of a new county stricken from the old ,
renders all of the proceedings had under the
indictment m contravention of the four
teenth amendment as being "without duo
process of law. " After three aays fighting
and argument on the question.the court sus
tained the plea and grautnd the indictment.
This makes the second plea m abatement
which has been sustained by the court , Hied
by the defense , the first having boon an at
tack upon the information filed by the prose
cuting attorney of Cheyeiio county , as being
in controycntion of the fourteenth amend
ment. Likewise the defense having raised
the question that under our bill Of rights and
federal constitution , no man.'accused of a
capital crime could bo placed upon his trial
unless on a presentment or Indictment of a
grand jury. The action of the court ulaccd
tlio case in the same condition it. was on
June 23 , 1BSS , when the dofcudunt was first
arrested and incarcerated , in .tho Sidney
Jail. This case has already cost Cheycna
