J. J. Dickey , district superintendent of the

the editorial In a morning paper attacking

of messenger boys from $10 to $0 a

least foundation.
"Not asinglevcnt has boon niaito In any

the assurance given by him to a Uin ro-
porter. "Furthermore , wo have noi been
paying any of our messengers less than $12 a
month , and from that up to f IS inul . * 20.
This Indicates to me that the alleged boy's
letttir ninking complaint was manufactured
as an excuse to unjustly abuse this olllco ,
"Wo haven't got a boy that has over com
plained of being dissatisfied or of being hard
worked. " _

O'Loary yesterday for obtaining money un
der false pretenses. O'Leary went Into
Lang's store last night and asked him to

Lang refused to cosh It , sa.vlng ho had been
in business twenty-live years ana had never
cashed n check for anybody. O'Lcar.y ' finally
persuaded Lung to Rive him $20 for the check.
Shortly after this complaint was filed ,

O'Leary was sick the last half of May and
Walter Homier worked In his stead. O'Leary
drew pay for the full month , together with
$35 which the commissioners had allowed

O'Leary is said to have carried on
a wholesale loan business. Ho would bor
row from JtOO to $200 from different parties

VirixcityVns Very
The trial of Colonel Fletcher for miscon
duct as u soldier and u gentleman , was con
tinued yesterday morning. The accused
again took the stand uud was subjected
to a cross-examination by the judge advocate.
'Hirst know , " said the witness in reply to
Captain Porter's intcrroiMtories , "that
my boy was sick , after Dr. Hen
derson was called in. I vis
ited the sick room dally , and
inquired after the boy's health. Dr. Hen
derson was there most of the time day and
night up to the time of his departure to the
range. I cannot swear that the doctor was
there all night , but ho was there moat of the
timo. "
"Why did you wait to be invited to attend
the boy ? "
" 1 didn't wait. "
"You say you wore perfectly willing to
render him assistance , why didn't you ) , '
" 1 don't know but that I did. "
"Diu you over sit up with him ? "
"Not all night. "
"Did you ever ask Dr. Henderson about
the baby's ' condition ? "
"Yc" , i had a long conversation with him
the night before ho left for the range. "
"You say that upon the night when you
came homo and found Captain Dempsey
there that the boy was ulono. Are you sure
of this ! "
"lain not positive. There may have been
some ono there. I swore that I hadn't seen
anyone. "
Continuing , the witness testified that his
wile never informed him that she was going
to abandon his homo until after the arrival of
Mrs. McFarlaud nnd up to that time ho had
no reason to believe she contemplated doing
so."Didn't you testify yesterday that your
wife told you that she was going to abandon
your homo before the arrival of Mrs. Mo-
Farlaml ? "
"If i said thai I wish to qualify It by say
ing that she spread such a rumor about the
garrison. She never told It directly to mo. "
"Then I understand your answer to bo that
Mrs. Fletcher had threatened to leave your
homo before the arrival of Mrs. McFar-
"Sho had implied thnt she would do so at
different times during the past two years. "
The witness became very nervous , and it
was with difllcultv ho could bo followed. Ho
finally made tills statement ;
"Tho impression I wished to convoy is
this' That up to the arrival of Mrs. MoFnr-
laad , my wife had not notified mn that she
intended abandoning my homo. "
"Hadn't she ever said anything of the
kind ! "
"Sho said that she might go away and
novui" return. "
"Why did you invite Mrs. McFarland to
bo present nt the Interview with your wife
of thu 13th ? "
"Because I know she know of the domes
tic trouble existing between my wife and I ,
and I wlbhod to toll of the things that hurt
me. "
"Didn'tyou caliber in as a peacemaker ? "
'No. I called her la because 1 know ( .lie
was the cuuso of my wife packing up to
leave my homo , nnd I wanted her to hoar
what I had to Hay. "
"Hadn't your wife made preparations to
lenvo your homo before the arrival of Mrs.
"Sho had made preparations only to make
u. visit. "
"Aro you euro that Miss MIskoy was not
present at your first interview with Mrs. Mo
"I um not positive. "
"Was she present at the time of the con
versation on the Kith of Junoi"
"My recollection Is that she came In after
thn conversation and stayed but u few mo-
meiUs , possibly lung enough to hear part of
the conversation. "
The witness reiterated his statetnoht of
yesterday thnt ho bought and paid for the
doii-cart , over which there was a dispute oa
the liUh , He bought It In Uuffalo.
"Did you not testify yesterday that you re
turned to Mrs , MuFurland the money she
paid for the cart ! "
"No , I think not. "
"Was not the cart paid for by a check given
by Mrs. Flotrliorf'1
"I think not. "
"Did you say to Mrs , Fletcher on the l < ? th
of Juno that you haU given her your pay ac
count la return for the check she had paid
for the cart ? "
'Tlio word pay account wns not used. "
"Suppose one of your own witnesses eald
It wn i"
"Ho mluht h.ivo thought I utod It. "
' 'On that morning dlua't you talk louder
than the others 1"
"I might have. "
"What boi'unm of the cartl"
"Tho last I saw of It , Mr , Carton was driv
ing U , "
"Was Miss Mlskey present during the ills-
cusslon over the cart ? "
"No , Btr. "
"Tovhom did you address the remark
'U ' d liar , ' on that occasion I"
"To Mrs. McFnrlnnd. "
"Aro you cortuln of thntl"
" 1 nm. "
"How did you roach the city of Omnhn on
the morning of the lIHh ? "
"I walked part way nnd rode part way In
a carriage. "
"Did overtake ! "
your own carnage you
"On how many occasions hns Colonel
Whonton loft the post without notifying
you ! "
"Ho very rarely Informed mo. "
"Did you consider that u gooa rule to fol
low I"
"No , sir , " emphatically.
' Then you know you were following a bad
precedent ! "
"It had been my custom to turn the post
over. "
"What did you call the meeting of the
ofllccrs on the 21st fort"
'To explain to Captain Dempsey the
charges Mrs. McFarland had snld I hud made
against him. "
' " ' 'ho domestic troubles you referred to on
that occasion had no rofcronco to the specifi
cations on which you are now being tried ! "
"No , sir. "
The witness then emphatically reiterated
the statements ho made yesterday re
garding the assault made upon
him by Dr. Henderson , and also in regard to
the letter ho Inul received from Captain
"That letter , you any , did not Influence
you In regard to placing Captain Dempsey
nnd Lieutenant Wright under arrest , and requesting -
questing the annulment ot Dr. Henderson's
contract ! "
"It did not. "
The colonel wns questioned by General
ICuutz as to tils recollections of the battle of
Clinpln's farm , as If ho had doubled some of
the defendants statements.
Thin ended the examination of the nc-
cusea , nnd a recess was taken pending the
arrival of another witness.
Mrs. Emily A. Tllton , of Wllllamsportf ,
Pa. , npotlta lady of most prepossessing up-
poaranco , was. the next witness called.
She testified that she was married nnd
know Colonel Fletcher. She has lived in
Wlllinmsport ton years , but spent , the six
winters prior to her marriage in Philadel
phia. She has known Mrs. McFarland all
life ; always lived near her In Philadelphia.
She spent two seasons nt Atlantic City when
Mrs. AleFarland was there.
"You may state whether or not during this
acquaintance with Mrs. McFarlnndyou have
hoard her reputation for truth and veracity ? "
"Very frequently "
"What is her reputation for truth and vo
racity ? "
"Very bed. "
"What do you moan by very bad ? "
"Well , if she became displeased at anyone
she would not hesitate at anything. "
"Wns her reputation discussed at Atlnntio
Oitv ? "
"Not for truth and voracity. "
"Fcr other characteristics I"
"Yes. "
"You may state whether the people there
avoided her society or not. "
"Tho people interested preferred that their
daughters should avoid her and bathe at n
different hour. "
The judge advocate hero entered a protest
against a further examination In regard to
her conduct further than it referred to truth
and veracity.
Paymaster Torrill snld that if she wns n
married woman and it could bo proven that
she had been untrue to her husband that
that would bo the very best test of the com
petency of the testimony of Mrs. McFarland.
The witness , under cross-oxnminntion ,
named about twenty people whom she 1-nd
heard speak disparagingly of Mrs. McFar
A recess was then taken.
After lunch L. S. Tilton was called to the
stand. Ho is Ihe husband of the preceding
witness. Hu also knows Mrs. McFarland
and has known her for four years. Ho
knows her reputation among the people of
Philadelphia who are acquainted with her
nnd knows it to bo bad. Ho hns heard prom
inent people , railroad magnates , bankers and
the like discuss her reputation for truth nnd
veracity and pronounce it bad. Ho heard
ono gentleman say ho wouldn't believe her
if she was angry , nnd ho had heard another
say that she wouldn't hesitate to tell n false
hood If she could gain her end by it. Ho
sDccilled as to the dates and places where
ho had heard such discussions. Ir. Williams-
port ho had hoard people suy that there was
nothing too bad for her to sny about anyone
with whom she is angry , nnd whom she
wished to injure.
Cross-Examlnntion "How many persons
have you heard uiscuss her reputation in this
manner ? "
"Ten or fifteen. "
"Name them. "
The witness proceeded to name certain
persons. Ho had difllculty in recalling the
names nnd addresses. The judge advocate
insinuated thnt the witness wlthneld the ud-
dresscs of the parties In order that they
might not bo reached ,
"How did it happen that Mrs. McFarland's
reputation for truth and veracity so fre
quently came under discussion ! "
"It sprang up in the course of general con
versation. "
"Did you introduce tha subject ? "
"No , because I didn't know the lady. "
"You said u few minutes ago that you had
known her for four years. "
"I know of her , but was not acquainted
with her personally. "
"Did not these discussions arise from the
fact that the parties knew you to be con
nected with Mrs. McFarland by marrlagoi"
"No , sir , because when I llrst heard her
discussed I wns not married. "
The counsel for the defense informed the
couit that two witnesses from Philadelphia
had telegraphed him that they could not
reach Omaha unlil Friday. These wll-
nesses have known Mrs. McFarland all her
life , aim the testimony would bo of the
greatest Impoitanco , nnd In addition to this.
Colonel Fletcher lind received n letter from
a lady in Chicago with whom Mrs. Fletchur
and Mrs. McFarland had visited when on
their way engt , and to whom Mrs. McFar-
land had said , "I've got Colonel Fletcher
where I want him now , nnd I nm comg to
fix him. " Ho would like to bring this witness -
ness here.
His request wns granted and tha court nil-
journcd until Saturday morning , to give the
defense time to bring his witnesses bora.
