SCOTT'S PRELIMINARY HEARING. BIclrmlslilriK For To-ilny's Bnttlc Tho' City Council Monls-Gonoral nncl I'orHonnl Notcn of Interest. Killed on tlio Unit. "This Is the worst chewed up tlft wo'vo hid since wo'vo boon In the business , " re marked Will Esten , of the undertaking firm of Field ft Estop , as bo paused In his work last evening over a horribly mangled mass of flesh , bones , tllrt and cinders , blood-bo- smeared , ami bearing not tlio slightest resemblance - semblance to the remains of a humnn being. Yotsucn , In fuct , were the ropulstvo and sickening frncmonts. A pair of congress shoes , attached to some part ot the gory heap , were the cnly lliln s that would lead ono to suspect thiit only ono short hour before those remain * had bean full of Ufa and health , which hud been crushed out In un Instant by the merciless grind of the iron wheels , unil the body literally reduced to inlnco meat. How It happened will uover bo known , nnd the identity ot tlic dead man may like * who remain a mystery. The llrat that wus known of tlm horrlblo affair was a few tnin- utos after tl o'clock last evening , when ono of the employes of the Northwestern round- honso started to cross the tracks , nnd almost stumbled over what the light of the lantern disclosed to bo the trunk of a human body. The mcomlticr evening passenger , No. 5 from Chicago , hid just passed on Its way to the local depot und the transfer , nnd apparently explained Uiuiiwful llnd. The coroner was nt once notified of the affair , and repaired to the rouiid-houso whcro an Inquest was held. No facts were elicited that could throw any liuht upon the subject , as no ono had seen.tho man , no one knew him , and no ono know anything of his tragic death until his mangled .remains ware found as ubovo stated , The engineer of No. , * was not aware that a man had been killed , .and quietly went home nnd to bed. Wiion the tram arrived ut the transfer the engineer found .1 small spot of blood upon ono of the driving wheels and remarked , "Hello , xve must have run over a ( ! oi ? somewhere up the lino. " When the train backed , up to the yards tlio engineer got oil at the dummy crosslntr , and walked up the dummy track to the Metropolitan , while the llromun took the engine on to Broadway , to turn over to the hostler , and was thcro informed that they had killed a man In the .yards as tlioy came in , , Ho went nn up to the round house , and was a witness before the coroner's Jury. Ho testilioa that no one had been seen upon the track , and the llrst intimation ho had of tiny accident \vaias nbovo stated. When the train was nearly opposite the round house , ho noticed that they slacked up a little , and supposed that some ono in one nf the cars was fooling with the air brake. No attention was paid to it , and nothing further liaDpcned until they neared llio Broadway depot , when the train suddenly came to u full atop. Ho and the engineer supposed that the conductor had turned on the air , unit got oil to llnd out the reason. The conductor had not touched the air , nnd an Investigation showed that the small stopcock on the under side of the air drum , just back of the lire-box cf the engine , hud been broncn off. It was supposed that u crossing plank or some small object on the track had struck it , nnd the hole was plugged up and the train proceeded to the transfer. Other witnesses conlJ toll nothing that would explain any more fully how the acci dent occurred. The coroner's jury , composed , of W. li. Copson , Ed Hates and Ed Morse , returned a verdict in. accordance with the fact , and at tached no blame to the railway company or any ot itscmployes. It is supposed that the stopcock was broken off by the body of the unknown dead man , thus turning on the nir. Where the accident occurred Is a matter of conjecture , us the re mains wero.strewn along the truck as far up as the section house , a quarter of a mtlo above the round house , whcro the body was found. The supposition is that the deceased was stealing a ride , and was cither on the pilot , at the frout of the engine , or on the forward trucks , under the boiler. If ho was In the former placu ho was evidently benumbed and fell off , und if the latter , his clothing must have caught on the uxlo and pulled him from his position. Tlio pinco on the trucks Is ono very fre quently occupied , us the boiler iuriiishcs heat for the impecunious traveler , and there is quito u little platform there on wnlch to rido. Scarcely a day passes that a tramp is not dis lodged from this perilous perch by the watch ful engineer as ho oils his engine. It was a gruesome task gatthorlue up the scattered remains. Here was a log , there an arm or an car , nnd a little further on a portion of the entrails. The clothes were found near the section house , that is , such us were found at all , for some baa un doubtedly been torn to shreds and scattered to the winds. The wheels had passed lengthwise across the fnco of the unfortunate num. reducing the head to u pulp , and a small poitlon of ono cheek was all that could bo recognized ns n portion of a human head. The shoos were the only portion oC the clothing loft upon the .body , and they were picked up with the ends of two mangled stumps pro truding from them , presenting a most revolt- tint' spectacle. The only things found in the pockets were a small notebook containing n largo number of newspaper clippings of poetry and a pawn check for an overcoat on which $ ' . < had bcon loaned , on the 'Ja Inst. , by A. Wolf , South Tenth street. Omaha. It is probable that this iimy load to his identity. The deceased was dressed in a brownish gray , pepper-and-salt coat nnd vest nnd a striped blue llanncl shirt. The hat und pants were not found , nnd were probably blown to ono sldo of the track and may bo found In the morning. The remains were taken to the underlett ing rooms of field & Estop , where they now lie , nnd will bo held until to-morrow for Identification. J. U. Tlpton , real estate , G27 Broadway.

Co. , Stephan & Harmer , 33 Pearl Soott's Preliminary Hunrlne The preliminary examination of ox-Po- Hccmait'O. ' W. Scott , charged with the mur der of Lottie Leland , was commenced before - fore Judge Aylosworth yesterday afternoon. Prosecuting Attorney Organ appeared for the state , and Colonel D. B. D.ii'oy ' con ducted the defense. Several witnesses were * examined for the state , but all the evidence for the proseeiUioa had not boon submitted when court adjourned , The testimony Intro duced was substantially the same as given by the witnesses at tlio coroner's inquest , ana those who were placed on the stand were Ilattlo Turner , Hazel Gray , Hello Clever , Jerry Mullen , Frank Fowler , Elmer Josolyn , Dr. J , C. Waterman and W. If. Brotz. Aoout tno only thing that was fully proven wus that the Leland woman \vus she and dlod from the wound. It did not appear from the evidence that Scott was oven In the room with the deceased when tbo shooting oc curred , or that ho went up stairs with bar. Some of the witnesses , notably the inmates of the Clever bagnio , hud apparently sulTorod material lapse of memory regarding sev eral matters , and the Indications are that should the case finally coma to a trial In the district court they will have entlrejy for gotten everything in connection with the case. case.Scott's wife and llltlo girl were present In court room , and sat by his .sldo during the hearing. Mrs. Scott evidently remembers what" has passed , and there- was a conspicu ous coldness which she manifested toward her husband , She gave tbo closest attention to thu testimony of the witnesses from the house where thu tragedy occurred , and was apparently desirous of ascertaining just what Scott's relations with the dead woman bad been , Scott listened intently to the ovldonco , ns this was the first tlrao that bo had boon confronted wlnh tbo witnesses. His confinement has told heavily upon him , and ho has lost fully fifty pounds In weight. Ho ftppen'rs nervous nnd careworn , nnd nitric circles have appeared under his eyes , whllo a deep pallor has succeeded the ruddy com plexion that wns his before his Incarcera tion. tion.Tho hearing was continued until tomorrow row mornlnn at 9 o'clock , at which time the fttnto will call tbo doctors who attended the woman after the shooting , and some of the inmates of the Clover bagnio , whoso pros- cnco could not bo secured yesterday. It is known what testimopy the defense will In troduce. but It Is understood that the do * fcndant Is the only witness , nnd ho will bo placed upon the stand In his own behalf. When court adjourned the marshal In quired whcro the prisoners should bo con fined until the completion of the examina tion. The court thought that the county j.iil was the best plnco , as "tho city jallmicht bo needed for other parties who might violate late the election laws. " Thu prisoner ob jected to going to the county jail , ns his wife wished to visit him to-day , nnd the court stated that ho had no choice In the matter. The matter wns entirely in the hands of the marshal , and nil that was necessary was thnt ha should bo safely confined somewhere. The upshot of the matter was that the prisoner was taken back to tha city Jail. Considerable Interest was manifested in the cnso nnd there were several spectators in the court room. It Is thought thnt half n day will suillcn for hearing tbo remainder of the ovldonco.

The order and contract for grading Com mercial street In Snow & Green's uubdivis- ion were rescinded and annulled for the rea son that thu grades established was imprac ticable and injurious to the property abut ting thereon and to the prooer improvement of Fulrmount park , and the engineer ordered to prepare n profile for a proposed avenue from Park nvcnuo easterly along the line of Snow & Grneu's subdivision. After a great deal of discussion nnd the notice by Contractor O'flcarn that ho would oxpcct damages , the matter was referred to the committee on streets and alloys , with power to act. Bids for paving , with hard burned brick , of the alloy between Hryant and First street , were received. The bid of W A.

Bids for grading Avenue A replacing the earth taken out by the Motor company were received. There were a largo number of bids , and they were referred to the city engineer for tabulation. A larco number of bids for plank and brick sidewalks were offered for tabulation : Tnobid of John Sklnklo was thrown out DO- cause thu bond furnished was not as largo as called for in the advertisement.

A combi nation culling Itself the Acmq opera company , 'Of ( Jhicttgo , gave a show ot some sort at Reynold's hall last Friday night. No frco tickets were sent to this olllco , and when wo sent our hnlf- brood roller boy over to the manager with a note asking why in Texas ho had neglected such nn important duty , ho returned word that The Kicker could kick nnd be hungod to it.

The BR | Bull That Kuns Wild Over California nnd Nevada. It is doubtful if any land animal of this ago. outside the elephant and rhin oceros , equals in size to the fully devel oped members , of the bovine family , says the Reno ( Nov. ) Gazette. Very few of thorn nro granted the opportun ity of attaining full size , ns they cither go to the butcher shop when three or four years old. ' or are transformed by the knife' from the deop-voiced and broad-necked head of the tribe into the piping ox and s'6t to dragging logs to mill or pulling the plow , liven the king of the herd fnlls'uvictim , to the canned corned-beef market before his time and is replaced by younger and more vigor ous blood. Perhaps tlio.lincst specimen of his race on this continent is nu im mense blue bull that roams at largo ever the Madelinot plains , and has for years boon the dread of the herdsmen who have to gather cattle twice a year in that country. Madeline plains is a high table-land on Iho eastern slope of the Sierra Novndas , " extending from1 Honey valley nearly to Goose lake , devoted to the cattle - tlo and horse business almost ex clusively. Farm are few and fur be tween , and this beast hud abundant freedom to develop. Ho escaped the hrandf ng-iron and knife while u young ster and now has passed entirely be yond control of the methods nnd appli ances of the cowboy's art. No corral could hold him and n dozen , horsemen could not handle him oven if they could get their ropes on him , IIo is , from all reports , fully us largo ns-any of the animals that tire exhibited as curiosities , und .unlike them his devel opment is superb. While their ton. acre pastures gave them room to feed his range was over whole counties and his actionis like that of a deer or a race-horse compared with .theirs. He has been heard of in widely separated parts of the country. Dr. Patterson.of Ccdarville , says ho broke into a Hold in Surprise valley ono night and nte up a whole crop of sugar-cano. Ed Ferris , at Honey lake , had him , with a lot of cuttle , in a corral onco. but ho walked through it as if it was mnde of old news papers. Low Clark got a rope ever ono horn and his nose but the steer was walking awa\ with horse and rider so fast that ho had to lot go and lose his lino. Allen Bragg saw him once in Dixie valley and Senator Fred Cox on Pit river. When the mountains nro snowed un der , his lordship betakes himself to tlio rich bunch-grass of Nevada , and graces the ranges of Louis Doau and Ward Bros. , with his presence , and has bcon soon by Col. C. H. E. IZurdin's vaqueros as far east a Quinn river. Thcro seems to bo nothing in the country that ho fears , nnd neither man nor animal can tame him. Ho has boon shot at often , but his thick skull sheds bullets like a duck's back dues hail , and unless a chance shot reaches the heart ho is pretty sure to die of old age. John Flockonstein declares that ho saw him and old "Clubfoot , " the gigantic grizzly , come together in Sardine valley a few years ago , which must have boon something to behold. They hud both bean invincible up to that hour , and each wns ready for any thing that came buforo him. The bull scorned to got ttio first scout of an enemy nnd bognii-lo paw the ground nnd bellow. Old ' 'ClUbfoot" accepted the challenge and marched proudly out into the open and waited for the charge , which came _ _ plenty soon. IJo reared up on jjis haunches and re ceived his onolriy with a nlow on the sldo of the head Umt resounded like a note from a drijin' , but the momentum of the Hying animal was too great , and the bear took atumblo ; clear ever him self. IIo rose iu a rugo , und before the bull hud time td'turn ' ho was upon him , touring his sides with tooth nnd claw. The air was filled with dust , and the woods echoed und re-echoed with the roars of the bear and the bellowing of his foo. Blood ( lowed from both , and the horns were tearing the shaggy coat of bruin as severely as the clawfl were that of tno bovine. The light resulted in a draw , and John says oaoh scorned to have had enough as ho sadly took his several roads ; but us old Clubfoot - foot has never bcon soon since it is sup posed that the terrible thrusts from the sharp horns and beating from the thick ekull wore too much for him , and ho crawled away nnd died. The lust place the bull wns hoard of was in the hills beyond Snowstorm canyon , but ho may turnup nearer homo , ns Jim Miller offers & 50 for him dead or alive , and Mr. Bragg 10 for hla hido. From nil accounts his horns would bo u noble trophy of the chase , as they uro said to be very long and extend in a handsome- curve fur out on each side of the head , TOE BENDER DEATH TRAP , A Sorloa of Crimea Almost Without a Parallel. HORROR OF A WAYSIDE INN. Uimigttoctlng Gursts Mnrtlcrcil In Unwfl Wlillo Blulna At tlio TalJlo The CollnrVns n Chnrnot IMt. A Kansas Gnlcotlin. The recent arrests fit Nilcs , Mich. , of persons supposed to bo members of the notorious Bender family , of Kansas , re calls ono of the most horrible chapters in the criminal history of the west. The family consisted of ono old man , his wife and n son and daughter Kato. They kept n sort of waysldo inn , with a saloon attachment , about ton miles west of u little vlllugo called Galesburg , in Kansas. Hero travelers often put up for the nlirht , and it was usually the case that they took lodgings for otor- nity. At tiny rate , the doom of travel ers was sealed the moment they crossed the Bonders' threshold , and so numer ous became the disappearances that investigation followed and a series of bloody crimes for Rain wore unearthed which stand without a rival in criminal history , says the Cincinnati Enquirer. The scheme of the family was tin ingenious one. When they SAW A TUAVKIjKIl Al'lMlOACIIINO some member of the family would stray out and busy himself about the roadside , and as the travolor.drew near would accost him in a pletisaht manner , and if the time was anywhere near nightfall would assure the traveler that ho could not roach his destination and had bettor stop and remain over night , Such real old Virginia hospitality was rarely , if over , declined. The house was admirably and pur posely arranged for the double purpose of robbery and murder. The front room was separated from the baclc by a thin curtain , similar to that placed over folding doors. When a man entered whom the family proposed * to rob ho was invited to take a seat with HIS BACK TO THE CURTAIN. Sometimes several travel era arrived together at the wayside inn. Then nn equal number of members of the family concealed themselves behind the cur tain , and , each selecting a victim , would await the given signal and op portune moment to brain the unsuspect ing guest. Sometimes the stranger would chnneo his seat. Thuu the family aroused themselves to become exceedingly jocose and entertaining. The old mail related stories of hair-breadth escapes , daring robberies and incidents of early life on the plains. Games wore proposed and all sorts of merriment was indulged in. Among the games would bo ono in which tlio traveler had to got down'on his Uneoson a pillow and bo blindfolded. The pillow was placed directly over the trap-door , and at the right time KTato would stop from the curtain , and , doul- 'ing the victim a blow on the baclcof the skull with a largo hammer , followed it up by a blow on the temple with" smaller ono , which finished the trav- eler. Then the trap-door was pulled , and the victim fell a corpse INTO THE CELLAR below. Disappearances became more and more frequent , people were missed , and inquiries wore frequently made about strangers who had been scon in Gulcsburg , but could not bo traced further than the neighborhood of the Bonders' home. Though they wore re garded as tough characters , and kept to themselves , yet nothing positivo'was known against thorn. Murder will out , however , and the career of the Benders ers could not , liuo the purling brook , go on forever. The immediate cause of their discov ery was a woman from Eastern Kansas , when her husband , expecting to settle in Western Kansas , took his departure , agreeing to return on a certain day and bring his wife along. Time rolled on and the wife becoming alarmed nt her husband's failure to come for her , start ed in search of him. As luck would have it , she was overtaken near night fall at the Benders and took a room there. It was a room in the second story , and looking around , she saw on the bureau A sarALL LOCKHT , that attracted her attention. Opening it she saw a picture of herself that she recognized as one her husband always wore. Then her auspicious wore thor oughly aroused and she resolved to watch an opportunity to escape. She feared to retire , and putting out the light , awaited in the darkness to note developments. The night was a bright moonlight ono and looked out upon an orchard. Soon she saw a light moving about in n mysterious manner. She lost no time in effecting her escape from the window onto tv porch , and mov ing stealthily toward the orchard , closely watched the movements of the people. When they disappeared' she wont to the spot and discovered A NEWLY DUO O1CAVK. Paralyzed with horror at tno sight of the grave that was intended for hersho , remained in concealment on the prairies until morning came , when , re- palring to ono of tlip neighbors , aho re lated what she had seen and heard and produced the lockoi as confirmation of nor blood-curdling talo. The news spread like wild-fire , and what had boon only suspicions before became now proof as plain as Holy Writ. The country was aroused and a posse of citizens was at once organi/.od and proceeded to the abode of the Bonders. The birds had got wind that their sins wore on their way homo to roost and had taken flight. Their slock and cattle wnro found , their horses tied to a wngpn. They followed their trails , scouring the country , hut whether they overtook them and meted out to them the grim justice they deserved , or whether they wore unable to find thorn , is ONE 01' THH UNSOLVED MYSTElElKS. Tho- members of the posse had sworn to secrecy and refused to talk , yet there have been various rumorn that the family escaped to Mexico or Texas , or lied to Germany to live in aflluonco on their ill-gotten gains. The grounds about the cabin wore thoroughly explored , and revealed a horrible state of nlTairs. Many graves were found containing moldering skele tons of murdered victims , Among the bodies found was that of a ynungor brother of Mrs. Willis Williford , of Athens , Ga. He lived about forty-eight miles from the Benders , and started ono day to invest in HO mo lands in the south western part of the state. Ho had several hundred dollars with him , and trav eled in a two-horse wagon. On the second day ho reached the cabin of the Benders , and was never boon afterward alivo. Eighteen months afterward his body was recognized by the color of his hair and some buttons that ho were as being ono of thn occupants of the Bun- dor burial ground.

Ho lived in Inde pendence in 1873 , and one day wus called to Ft. Scott ou business , in : iNi'oiuiun ins Anns ot his intended trip and of his plans to return on a certain day. Fail ing to return , his family noti fied the senator , who caused a vigorous search to bo mudo. The doc tor was a man of well marked peculiari ties. Ho was of medium height , were a peculiar shaped hut , spectacles , und hud u habit of conversing "with any chance acquaintance , and always winding up the conversation by asking for nohow of tobacco. These eccentricities of the doctor were so well Known as to bo the subect of general remark , and by them the course of the doctor was easily traced. Ho had visited Fort Scott , und had transacted his business nnd started homeward In ample time to reach Independence ' on the day agreed upon with his wife. Colonel York , who conducted the search , found u man five miles north east of Cherry villo who accurately de scribed the doctor , and directed him to the Benders ns a plnco where ho could got dinner and have his horse fed. The colonel inquired of the Benders , but they gave him no satisfaction. They had scon no such person ns ho described. Here all traces ended , und the colonel returned to Independence nnd reported. Suspicions were aroused ngainst the Benders , and it wns not long before the discovery and denouement came. There wore a number of graves found on the Bender place ton in ono spot besides several UODIliS IN THE CKr/LAIt.
