> ? ram to THE Bir. : ] Tbo imbroglio between
Mrs. Jcnnlo Orccno and W. 11. Hutchlnson ,
n wealthy farmer of Saundcrs county , ended
nbout 10 o'clock tonight in the probable
murder of Mrs Greene by Hutehlnson.
The old gentleman called to sco the
charming glass widow eailv In the
evening In the flat over Ma's
stoic nnd the two sat In the pirlor for some
tlmo , the cloven-ear old daughter of Mis.
Oiccno being the only other person present.
Suddenly the other members of the house
hold v\cro startled by the reports of
n number of pistol shots , and
on rushing Into the kitchen , Mrs
Greene's brother saw Hutchlnson pursuing
the woman with a revolver She crawled
under thn table , but Hutchtnson continued
firing , nnd while thus c-ouching for the Ihbt
time hho was stiuck bv DUO of tlio bullets.
The mlssllo pierced her back near the spinal
column , nnd the cowardly murdotor held the
weapon almost against the woman's body.
Mrs Greene dropped helpless after the bul
let was fired. Hutchlnson realised that ho
had committed a murder , nnd rushed out of
the door nnd down the stairway , attempting
to commit sulcldo by blowing his brains.out ,
but every chamber of his revolver hnd been
emptied nnd ho was umiblo to cuiyout his
puiposo. The biothor gnvo chase , but the
murderer dashed down the street and es
caped in the darkness.
For several minutes the wildest excitement
prevailed In the block , nnd it was some tlmo
before the police vvcro summoned. It was
then too Into to got any trace of the man.
A number of physicians wore called In nnd
they piobcd In vnln for the bullot. The
leaden mlssllo had sevcicd the spinal cord ,
paralv/lng the entire body below that point ,
but the couisu of the bullet could not bo
traced any further. It Is believed that it has
pierced some of the vital oigans und that the
woman cannot llvo.
There is a story back of the ease which Is
hard to got at. But as near as can bo
leained . It is as follows : Hutchinson
had become Infatuated with the widow nnd
has been making frequent calls on her. She
finally got into the confidence of the old gon-
tlcniau nnd managed to got hold of
/ 'aboutlOJO , worth of papers belong
ing to him. This caused a great
disturbance between Hutchinson and
his grown-up sons , and the wealthy old
faimor evidently came up today to tiv and
got back the papers which had been en
trusted to Mis. Greene.
Mrs. Greene has resided for some years In
Lincoln , but formerly lived In Koya Pahu
county , where she owns some property.
Later she lived in Omaha. She has been re-
patcd to bo a females dotcctlvo , but the rumor
has never been confirmed.

L'mnk Tobtn , is the son of

west of this place and has b"en working on
n farm in Huby's neighborhood for the past

VAII-VIIMSO , Neb .April 23. [ Special Tele-
giam to TUG Bi.r. ] When the train came up
from Lincoln todav a crowd of people hud
gathered aiound the depot to sec the bank
robbers who were captured this morning.
As soon as the tt am stopped , the prisoners ,
who were In charge of D. M. Dean and D.
W. Binnea of this place , and Marshal Craig
of Greenwood , were hustled off to the city
hall where they weio brought before Justice
Hlxson. Huby was brought fiom tlio cooler ,
and the charges of shooting with Intent to
kill and of attempting to rob the bank were
read to thorn. All pleaded guilty to
tno second count , nnd Tobin nnd Ruby
pleaded guilty to the first. Kuby's plea on
this was made without fully understanding
that It was only for the shooting of Mr.
Johnson and not for the shooting done whllo
bo was being chased , as that seomcd , . to be
what ho"\vas thinking of. The * nien waived
examination , and in less than twenty-four
hour : , after the attempt on tile bank they
were on their way to the county
Jail In charuo of Shenff Hyan and
Constables Griffin nnd Taylor. Their
bonds were fixed nt $2,000 , each. Nelson und
Tobin think they will bo able to glv o bonds ,
but It is very doubtful.
Tobin is about twenty-five jcais old , dark
skinned nnd has n stubborn , sullen look. His
father and stepmother live about eight miles
south of Valparaiso , nnd aio considered re
spectable people. Mr Tobiu * was not at the
pieliminuiy tiial today.
young Tobin originated the plan of robbing
the bank , as ho was acquainted with the
place and nouilshed a grudge against Mr.
Johnson , who ho supposed still owned the
bank. Nelson is rather the bright
est and most intelligent ono of
the tin eo , and appears to realise
and feel his position mo to keenly than do the
otheis. Mr. Cialg , who has known him for
two or three years , savs ho was consldoied of
good character. Nelson is about twenty-
four vears old.
Itubv is n very Illiterate fellow , dirty and
slovenly in appearance , and without any up-
rmient distinct ideas of right nnd wrong ,
looking moio like u genuine tramp than n respectable -
The men do not seem to have wished to
imitate Jesse James or anything of that kind ,
but being in need of money took what they
thoucht to bo the quickest w ay to obtain it.
The captuio and Jading of this ganc of cilm-
inals show that Justice is not so slow if men
act quickly and with some de-Unite plan.
No attempt was made to lynch Huby last
night , as some feared , but a racket was kept
up so as to fi inhton him into a full confession ,
bUt the poor fellow evidently had told all ho
Messrs Dean nnd Bnrnot , who captured
Tobin and Nelson , reached Gi"enwood nbout
1 o'clock this morning , nnd enlisting the
set vices of City Marshal Ciaig , tboy pro
em od n carilago and proeecde'd to
the farm wheio Nelson lives with
a brother , who is married , Arriving at the
plnca about : ! o'eloclt , they quietly drove up ,
and while ono hitched the hordes the
others made n searcli for the team nnd
buggy , which they soon found put avvav as
carefully ns if the owners had Just come
homo from a short drive Then while Dean
nnd liinlies watched outside Mr. Craig
rapped on the door , which was opened by the
brother of the robber. Ho was ordered to
carry the light nnd guide Mr Craig to the
bedroom of voting Nelson , where the latter
was found in bed but awake. By his side lay
Tobin , nnd without any show of resist
ing they prepared to accompany the
ollice-rs , after their clothes had been
searched , The biothnrand his wife did not
seem to bo in the least surmised at the ar
rests , not oven inquiring the nntuiooftho
charges The ride back to Valparaiso was
Mr Johnson's wound Is giving him some
trouble but ho goes about nnd attends to bis

a looking man as Frank Tobin Had John

bagged the whole gang as they Utterly fell
over each other in theii.hasto to get out ol
the bank door.
Mr. Chambctlam was taken wholly un-
aw in es by Huby , who asked him for a loan ol
JMOO , and giving bis name. Mr , Chamberlain
vvroto down tbo name nnd asked him vv hat se
curity ho wanted to give , and when ho
looked up hctgazcd Into the um//lo of a 'b-
callbio revolver. The only thing Mr.
Chamberlain could dovas to drop ott his
high stool nnd dodge under the counter ,
crawl to tbo other cud and reach up to gel
his pistol , but ho was to late too use It as the
robbers hud fled.

SALT LVKE Cm , UUh , Apiil CS , [ Special
Telegram to Tin , Bi.r J The facts of a ter-
rlblo piece of business at the county jail
leaked out today and the town Is an uproar.
On Wednesday morning last the Interior of
the Sail Luke county jail was transferred
from a bastile , where prisoners are kept , into
a branch ot the old Spanish ants do fo with
Whltmoro , the Swindled Nophi banker , as
chief inquisitor. Not only that , but ho delib
erately held up the misoner for $300 , which
ho took from him and which amount is now
under attachment at Piovo. Prisoner Leon
ard was airestod , charged with having plajed
the Mexican in the net where Whltmoro ,
in striving to get $ .500.000 for $0,000
was made a victim. Ho was arrested by
Ofllcer Hills of Piovo vvhiloon a train coming
to Salt Lake Whitmoio , by the way , was
on the train at the time. Leonard is a Jew
elry peddler and travels about selling low
grade jew elry and watches to farmers. Ho
was in Piovo on the da } that Otinker Whit-
more played the part of the greedy ruialist
and by u singular complication of facts was
in the neighborhood ol the pinto where the
bloated banner from Nophl paitcd with coed
money for some old junk. When the news of
the deed reached Provoundit was learned
that Wtiitemoio had been played for a ver
dant green , the police at onto began to keep
a sharp lookout for btiangors. Leonard was
watched very closely , and when ho loft the
town on the ! IHO : train for Salt Lake City ,
Hills got on with him. Whitmoio also got
on the tialn , but them was no connection be
tween them and each was acting independ
ently of the other. On the way up , Hills
concluded that ho would arrest Lconaid and
did so w Ithout any ndv ice or suggestion from
Whltmoro Upon his arrival In this city ho
( Whltmoro ) became acquainted with'the
facts. Notwithstanding the fact that ho had
given the officers to understand that the
Mexican was n smooth faced man and rather
of middle ago , while Leonard was about 00
jeais old and woio a heavy moustache ,
ho conceived the idea that tno man who
had robbed him was before him His
choler rose nnd by the aid of copious alee
hohc liqulllcatlons with which ho proceeded
to soak himself , ho worked himself up to a
perfect frctuy. Between the hours of mid-
niehtnmiy o'clock Wednesday iroining , In
company with Hills nnd Ilurbldiro the night
watchman at the Wahsatch building , Whlt
moro visited the jail. The objert of the visit
was to try and induce Leonard to confess the
crime. Thov succeeded but the means used
would have dlsgiaced the most bestial nnest
that over officiated In the piimv da } s of the
inquisition , ho it to ttto i rc-dit of ono of the
parti ( Hills ) to say that his manhood
prompted him to intcrtoio , and but for the
iron ljirs which cnged the prisoners they
would have mailo sboit wont of the man
that fcrmlttod himself In his soicnes over
the result of ills o > vn simplicity to maltreat
the helpless being boforu him After pet
ting in the jail Whitmoio put thongs of
buckskin on the prisoner's thumbs and bv
means of an iron bolt twisted them till blood
burst , horn under the nails. The ngonUed
man shrieked for nelp , and llnallv to save
himself confessed and also gave up fcbOO which
holmd sowed In the lining of his coat.
The district court hero will call the grand
Jury together to Investigate the matter. The
jailor was outside at the time of the occur
rence and did not learn of It till ho found the
man after the others had gone.
