IlKK.-Gorham ] V. Bolts , formerly of the
defunct retail coal firm of Bolts & \Vcavcr ,
nnd who In 1831 hold the contract for fur
nishing coal to the Lincoln asylum , was ar
raigned before Judge Strode In district
court this morning on the third Indictment
found against him. It charged that during
the month of April , 1801 , lie presented
vouchers to the State Board of Public
Lands and Buildings which falsely and
fraudulently purported that ho had fur
nished coal to the amount of $1,132.39 , when
In fact the real amount furnished and actu
ally delivered was but * 18.VJ1. Bolts Is de
fended by W. B. Brice nndV. . M.Clark ,
while the state Is represented by County
Attorney Woodward , Deputy County Attor
ney Collins , ux-Couuty Attorney Snoll and
J. It Ollkcrson of the firm of Kceso & Gil-
A spirited argument took place at the be
ginning of the trial over a motion made by
the defense that the county attorney bo In
structed by the court to enter a nollo
proscriut In the Indictments brought by the
llrst grand jury which Investigated the asy
lum frauds , the legality of which Is now
being questioned In supreme court. The de
fense took the ground that the indictment
under which Uotts was being tried covered
the same offense as was charged in the pre
vious Indictments , but the court ruled that
the county attorney need not do so.
Two hours of the morning session were ex
hausted in securing n , Jury , and at the noon
adjournment the state had used up its three
nnd the defense its eight peremptory chal
lenges , and cloven men were in the box.
There was but one man loft on the regular
panel , ana ho did not show up until 2
o'clock. Ho proved his competency , and
the trial began with the following Jury :
H. W. JOotwllcr. Gcorgo Feather , P. Tingle-
hoff , L. J. Fowler , John Llndloff , O. J. Uuu-
das , Ilobcrt Anderson , Conrad Hazcnbuchlcr ,
Alfred Harris , Fred Hlldobrandt , Daniel
Houscl nnd Joseph Mitchell. The majority
of tncm are farmers. The attorneys fol
lowed with their opening statements.
In his statement to the Jury Belts' attor
ney Insisted that they expected to prove the
entire innocence of their client ; that in the
transaction ho acted in good faith and with
no intent to defraud the state.
Mr. Post , bookkeeper at the asylum ; Dr.
Hay , assistant superintendent , nnd Secre
tary of State Allen were called to Identify
the fraudulent voucher as the one approved
nnd ordered paid. J. C. Myer , weighmasler
for Belts & Weaver in IB'Jl , testilicd that
the contents of cars which had been charged
up on the voucher to the state were retailed
by him at the yards. The records kept by
himself for Bolts & Weaver were introduced
In evidence , showing corresponding car num
bers and dates.
Thomas Carr , manufacturer of soap at
"West Lincoln , teslillcd that ho had paid
Belts $44 for a car containing 32.000 pounds
of coal in April , 1891. A comparison of car
numbers and dales showed that Belts hnd
charged up Iho same car to the state , assess
ing it $52.80 for whal ho sold to a private
customer for $8 less.
AV. II. Hart and Frank Mickloy , Burlington
freight conductors , traced n number of cars
by means of tlieir record , showing among
other things that no cars of coal were loft
ut the asylum switch on sevcraboftho ] dates
on which charges wcromado. against the
state. ' Mickley swore that two cars , the
numbers of which correspond to twocharged
up to the stale , had been loft at Stockwclls
switch , a Half inllo from Iho asylum.
Mayor Weir Wants Thorn Counted.
Mayor A. H. Weir filed In district coufl
today his answer In the contest brought
ngulnst him by Kobert B. Graham , Iho de-
foaled republican candidalc for mayor. In il
ho denies Iho ullcgallons that there were
fraud , corruption andmalconducton the parl
of Iho Judges and canvassers , or that errors
were made that would have chanced the re
sult , but says that there were a largo num
ber of votes cast for him and thrown out by
the canvassers which should have been
counted for him , thereby ontilllng
him lo an Increased majority. Ho
says that In precinct A of the First
ward , which was overwhelmingly
fqr Graham , a largo number of voles cast
for Weir were counicd against him. The
same occurred In precinct D of the Fifth
ward. Ho claims that a larso number of
votes cast for him were illegally rejected by
the Judges for trivial irregularities in locat
ing the cross marks opposite his name , and
in several prccinels ballols were Ihrown out
because they were blurred or blotted , the
intent of the voters thereof lo vole for de
fendant being apparent.
The most striking allegation made In the
answer is that in precinct C of the First
ward forty or llfty Kussians voted for Gra
ham who were residents upon the
saline lands outside of Iho city
limits and the votes wcro counted
for Graham. Ho claims thai in precinct A
of llio Stxlh ward O. M. Turnoy , W. D.
Laborco and V. Mosby , who were not legal
volors , were permitted to vote for Graham.
Iii tho' ' Third ward a largo number of Gra
ham votes were cast by men who swore in
their votes when they were not residents of
the ward , their certificates being signed by
Alex Jotes , a saloon keeper nnd proprietor of
n gambling house , who was ono of Iho chiefs
of Iho Graham forces. Ho says lhat Wil
liam Houber , Jacob Adolph and eight others ,
not known , voted Illegally In the Second
ward for Graham.
The mayor joins the plaintiff in asking a
recount of the votes to the end lhat his
right to hold the ofllco may bo established
wolr's majority over Graham was 14'J as
Ehown by the returns , and the prospects arc
that the trial of the case , if It is carried
through , will do something toward wiping
out fuluro political crookedness.

Two Suits AcnlnU the Struct Itnlhrny Com
pany Hill's Latest I'lc.i.
In the section of the district court pre
sided over by Judge Scott Altorney John L.
Webster yesterday assisted in saving the
Omaha Street-Hallway company the sum of
A year or so ago Fred W. Pears was n
fireman at ono of the several power houses
of the company. Ono hot day Pears alleges
that ho was not fooling well nnd thai while
in lhat condition the engineer compelled
nim to shovel an extra amount of coal into
the furnaces , the result of which was that
ho was completely overcome. The next
thing that he did was to sue the street rail
way company for $ 15,000 , charging that It
was responsible for his injuries and that his
health was permanently impaired. To this
Mr. Webster demurred , setting up the prin
cipal of law that as the men were fellow ser
vants , the company was not responsible for
the commands that one might have given to
After hearing the arguments the court
sustained the demurrer nnd Mr. Pears'
prospective wealth rapidly disappeared
Kucg the Motor Company. .
In Judge Scotl's court Caller I. Martin
has undertaken lo convince a jury that ho is
entitled lo recover Iho sum of to.OOO from
the Omaha Street Hallway company. Mar
tin alleges in his petition lhal as long ago as
Juno 2 , 1BUJ , ho attempted to board ono of
the North Twenty-fourth street cars at the
intersection of Cameron street ; that the
employes of the company failed to stop Iho
car , nnd lhat as a rcsull ho jumped onlo the
platform , but was hurled off and under the
wheels , which passed over his legs.
The defendant tells quite a different story ,
claiming that Instead of Martin hoarding
the car at the slrcel Intersection , ho jumped
on in the middle of a block and did not wait
for Iho train to bo brought to a standstill.
IMciuli ii Luck of Jurisdiction.
John E. Hill , Iho ex-stalo Ireasurcr , has
once again jumped into Iho judicial arena ,
where ho has protested against Iho state
recovering from him and his bondsmen the
.nubile money which was sunk in the
Moshcr hank nt Lincoln. The demurrer
which Mr. Hill filed yesterday conveys the
Information tliat Iho capitol of Ibis state Is
located In Lincoln and not Omaha and for
that reason the suit should have been insti
tuted in Lancaster county. In other words.
Mr. Hill pleads a lack of jurisdiction.
For the Jiuleo'g Sicimturo.
Ono of the echoes of the depot injunction

room yesterday. The case was decided a
