- PI.ATISMOOTII , Neb , , Oct. 4. ( Special to
TUB BII ; . | Considerable excitement und
surprise orovallod , especially In political cir
cles , yesterday when an evening piper ap
peared on the streets announcing that Ragls-
tor of Deeds W. H. Pool was u defaulter by
several hundred dollars. Two years ago W.
II. Pool , of the west end of the county , was
elected register of deeds on the republican
ticket. His salary wna li ed ut S1,5UJ a year
and \vus'allowcd ono deputy at a salary of
KOO , provided that the Income of tlio olllco
was HUflletent to cover the oxpjnso. During
Mr. Pool's term the office has more than paid
expenses and all the extra money was duly
turned over to the county treasurer , for
which Mr. Pool now holds receipts. Recently
romeono hinted lo the county commissioners
that Mr. 'Pool was short in his accounts , and
uiion the suggestion Mr. E. C. Adams , un
oxucrt account-ant from the Midland Guar
antee nnd Trust company , of Omaha , was
engaged to chock up the books and discover
the source of the trouble. The worlc , as
completed by Mr. Adams , shows thai tip to
July 1 , IbS ! ) , there was a balance
of MU8W ! duo the county from
Mr. Pool. When interviewed Mr. Pool
made the following statement : "For all in
struments filed in my olllco a fee is charged ,
and IhiS'-ihouhl ' be cash. My predecessors
hud adopted a custom of charging thoaniount
to the Individuals filing the instruments
when they were not accompanied by the
cash and through this custom 1 have fallen n
victim of buspicion. In about iO per
cent of the cases the fee Is not paid at the
tlmo cf filing , end why I am accused of being
a defaulter Is that only the money collected
appears on the fee booK , whllo I bold UIILO-
leuted accounts for which I am responsible
ugalnst principally real estate dealers of this
county and which covers the entire amount
for which my accounts nro deficient. I think
( the investigation was started by political en
emies Just on the eve of election to cause my
defeat. " Since Mr. Pool's accounts were
founu'shori the county commissioners uwouo
from tnnlr years of slumbering and put Mr ,
Adams to work checking up the books of ox-
County SJlork J. M. Robinson , who retired
from oflleo two years ago , and it is thought
that the shortage in his case will amount to
between $300 nnd 51,000. This system seems
to have been Ignorantlv but not fraudulently
practiced slnco the county was organised ,
and at the time of settlement with the com
missioner' ) nil that was required wus that t ho
amount of cash balanced the amount credited
on llio fco book. If. the Investigation con

Glcntlcnicn : It having been the practice , as

The indications now nro that the silver
load ore case will DO decided asralnst the
lead miners , or , In other words , that no
change will bo made In the rulings made by
Secretary Sherman and affirmed by Secre
tary Fairchild. Ucasons of public policy are
beginning to have an effect on the depart *
uiL-nt which they Old not scorn to hnvo u few
months ogo. Minister Ryan's visit and the
presence here of the delegates to the Inter
national conference are opening the oycs of
the treasury oflloinls to the importance of
ourtnulo across the border. If the Importa
tion of lead ere should bo cut oil by treasury
regulations It would have an important effect
upon the business of tlio American railrouds
leading into Mexico , for lend ere is ono of the
principal return freights which keeps the cars
laden with American goods from coming
back empty after leaving their freights in
southern republics. Secretary Windom will
probably decide this case as ho has decided
others , upon the principle that the long es
tablished usage of the department ought not
to bo overthrown for trivial reasons. In
this way ho can escape the , necessity of pass
ing upon the abstract question of law.
TUi : lOUL.\NQiil UK MISSISSIPPI.
Ex-Senator B. K. Bruce has returned from
Mississippi , where lie assisted In putting a
republican state ticket in the field where it
has not been the custom to mnko any resist
ance to the election of u democratic gov
ernor. Since the convention ho lias been
dubbed the Boulungerof Mississippi , because
of his having been a delegate from so many
counties. Ho was elected delegate to the
republican state convention from Warren
county , where is situated Vicksburg , the
largest commercial oily : from Hind county ,
In which is the capital city , Jackson , and
from Bolivia and Lcako counties. Besides
being four delegates ho was several other
officers of the convention. Ho was elected
both permanent and temporary chairman.
Upon his earnest advocacy the full state
ticket was nominated. The only colored
man on the ticket was N. U. Morrison , for
secretary of state , wno is an oJucatod man
und possesses considerable wealth. Twenty
years ngo the democrats nominated n colored
man for this olllcc. There is no chance now
for u light on the color lino. General Chal
mers was nominated for governor because of
his being aa ex-brigadier ol the confederacy
and a democrat until lbS3. The republicans
nro going to light for the election of their
Tim PENSION COMMlSSlONr.llSIllP.
Tlio appointment , of a pension commis
sioner 8001113 as far away now as it has at
any time since the resignation of Corporal
Tanner was received. The president is not
having an easy time to find a man who will
bo satisfactory to Secretary Noble and him
self on ono side , and who will nlso meet the
approval of Algcr and the U. A. R , on the
otl.or. It is said the only reason for not ap
pointing Judge Rca , of Minnesota , was the
objection of Alger. It scams apparent that
Algorniiil other O. A.'R. men wish to secure
a man for the pension bureau like Tannc'r or
who will at least carry oui Tanner's policy.
It was further apparent that Judge Roa
would not ho guided entirely by Grand
Army resolutions and sentiment , but would
administer the law as ho found it. This , K
seems , does not satisfy the Algcr Grand
Army men. The Michigan general hopes to
make n record durlnu the year ho will bo
commander-ln-chlof and he expects that the
right man in the pension bureau put there by
his endorsement will help him to make that
A IIBAUTIFUL APPROACH.
It was expected that the temporary wooden
railings nnd coverings to the sandstone about
the grand entrance on the west of thocupitol
would bo cleared away for those who will
visit the Knights Templar conclave next
week , and that as the work for this beautiful
approach to tha capital is completed , there
would bo a sort of "grand opening. " The
finest piece of oxtouslve marble work about
any of the buildings in Washington , in
fact the finest approach to any
building in the United States ,
can now be seen as ono goes into the capital
building from Pennsylvania uvenuo on tlio
west. The design for this immense piece of
innrblc work was suggested by the approach
to the Italian parliament nt Rome. It is
about four hundred foot long by almost ono
hundred feet in width , nnd the steps and
balustrades form n network of flno marble ,
which can be- found ut no other point prob
ably in the world. The cost of tills struc
ture is sonnwhcro between SCOiUXX ) and
$300,000 , and the work has boon under way
for several years. The marble is pure
white and can not bo * described.
Those who visit tha capital next week
will bo well repaid to look closely at this
work. The immense old flsh basin , which
wus the receptacle for clear stubs and bread
crumbs , has been cleaned out , aim u foun
tain with n basin of about twenty-live feet In
diameter Is to take its place. Tno tine white
marble approach , glistening in the sunlight
of an Autumn afternoon , makes a sharp and
beautiful contrast with the greensward and
the yellow leaves in front.

a small revolver In her hand. Hot
words followed the arrival of Mr.

A Dentil Blow to Charivaris.
Dns MOINHS , la. , Oct. 4. | Special Tele
gram to TUB Quc. ] The Iowa supreme
court has given a death blow to the hitherto
sacred rights and privileges of.charivari par
ties. This morning It reversed the decision
of Judge Doll Stuart , of the Monroe district
court in the murder case of the state of Iowa
vs Royal Adams , and in the course of a read
able decision by Judge Rothroclc roads a
lecture to charivari parties which will have
a wholesome effect. Adams was Indicted for
murder In the first degree for the accidental
shooting of a person named Daring , a mem
ber of u charivari party , convicted of man
slaughter and sentenced to the penitentiary
for noven years and six months. Prior to
August , 1S33. Adams was unmarried nnd re
sided with his aged father and mother upon
n farm in Monroe county. Ho was a
peaceable , orderly and law abiding citizen.
A few days prior to the 17th of tno month
ho was married , and on the night of the day ,
about 0 o'clock , ho arrived with his wlfo ut
his father's homo , and shortly altorward
the family retired , the young couple colng to
an upstairs room. About half past 18o'clock
a party of fifteen men uud boys of the neigh
borhood quietly approached the house- and
ivcnt up to the south side of It , near to the
window in the second utory. They were
armed with revolvers , shotguns and muskets ,
and some of thorn carried bells. They
opened a sudddon tire from the revolvers ,
guns and musuets and rung the bells and
shouted aud halloed , After the firing , some of
them went around to the south sldo of the
house , whore they know the old people Blent
and kept up a disturbance. It was soon dis
covered that one of the party , Oar *
ing , had received u gun shot wound.
Ho was one of the active parties
and carried and discharged ono of the guns.
Ho died from the effect of the wound the
next day. Members of the party testified
that very soon after the flr t shot was fired
by them u succession of from three to llvo
shots wcro flri'd .from the window above ,
The testimony was conflicting as to the line
of lire from the wludow to where Daring
wns shot , uud it appears that ono of Adams'
bullets struck u limb several feet above him ,
and was deflected and wounded Daring ,
"Tho Instruction of the lower court , " s-fys
Judge Rothrock , "Jn effect directs the Jury
that such a demonstration made under the
window of a dwelling house In the middle of
the night would not be a sufficient provoca
tion to reduce the killing of one of the party
to the crime of manslaughter , As applied to
ttioacts of this case , we can not approve of
the nbovo Instruction , The party assembled
on the night when the tragic affair
took place Is called a charivari.
Its ( yb'Vt ! , is about an barbarous as the name.
Whatever toleration It once had 1ms long
since passed uwny. Even when In vogue It
was oiton attended with violence and blood
shed. If It over was allowable to direct n
Jury that such nn assemblage , with all its
tumult and confusion , was not a great provo
cation to tboso annoyed and Insulted by It ,
Unit time has passed away. The tendency
was to confuse and mislead the Jury us to
ono of the most Important , questions In the
case , and to Impress their minds that the
conduct of the party encaged in the tumult
should bo lightly considered by them. Our
conclusion Is that the defendant should have
n now trial. "
