Ono of the City's Popular
HASTINGS , Nob. , Aug. 10. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB Ur.B.J K.irly this morning it
was reported that Frederick C. Mastin , man-
nger ot tlio local ofiico of the Western
Union , was missing. At 11 o'clock word
T > was brought to the city that Mastin had
committed suicide nnd that his body had
boon found in Ulttonhousu's grove , nortli-
WHSI of the city. The report was verilled
liy some of the searching party.
About 4 o'clock yustordav Division Suporin-
UMidenl Horton of the Western Union'called
lit the local oflleo and asked for Mnstln. Ho
wished to examine the company's books and
to "check up" the olllco. Mastin slgnillod
his willingness and directed * his ohi f
to the proper boolts nnd papers. In about
ten minutes Mastin loft the ofliee.
About half past 7 Mr. Horton became sur
prised at Mastin's absence and sent n mes-
ni'iigor to the lattor's residence to see if ho
was thero. Ho was not and an hour later
Mrs. Mnstln became much alarmed nnd went
to the olllcu to see If any trace had boon dis
covered of her At U o'clock Horton
ton left word that ho wanted to see Mastin
if ho was found.
I'riipiiroil for tliu llml.
At half past'fi ' ho cashed a $23 chock in a
local drug storti , saying that , ho wanted to
my for some insurance and soud money to
his wife. This chock signed lll'G. . Mastin ,
uiirr. " was refused payment at the bank this
luiny this morning 6no' of Mrs. Maslln's
friends took her a rather bulky envelope
from the postolllco , which on opening was
found to contain about $ r > in bills. Tliun it
Unshod across her mind thai her husband
was dond and the shock was so great that
she fainted. Frluuds organised a so.irchlng
iiarty at once. In Uittuuhouso'a grove the
body was discovered ,
At7iO : ! Mnstln was stilt going north on an
nnfreciuontod An hour later ho called
at the house of Conductor Hclhnap of the
llnrlinglon and s.iid Home men hud under
taken to hold him up and he got the
worst of it. His faeo was blood-
streamed from a wound on the face.
He asked fora revolver to protect hiinsoif
white going down for the police. It was fur
nished him nnd'Maslhi went toward the
south. This was ttin last seen of him alive.
ICfiillt of the lniilut.
At a o'clock the inquest was hold. Mas-
tin's pocketbook was opened nnd in it
written on u scrap of p.ipor was found u
note to his wife , which probably was the
ono the unfortunate man wrote after Horton
cumo in und started to oxamlno the books.
It spoke very tenderly of the relations
which had existed between them und
expressed wjrot at the parting.
HU debts , Mastin said , for her not
to attempt to pay as his property wus nil
mortgaged , HU plans had all failed and the
abrupt pat-tint ; could not bu helped , A
couple of life insurance receipts were also en
closed , along with a number of notes nnd
checks. Some of these were assigned to his
wife , and ono note of fWO , by his brolhcr-ln-
law , to his wife's oiothur.
The verdict was , "suicide by shooting. "
As to Mastln's standing with the com
pany , nothing can bo learned. Mr. Horton
went to Omaha this morning before tlio
discovery of the body and the local em
ployes know nothing of the affair. It is
customary to remit to Omaha monthly , but
the oflleo him not been chocked up for over u
year. If Mastin has boon somewhat bohliul
lie had many friends who would have been
glad to have bulpod him out.

years. In 1890 , while census enumerator , ho

Cattle ThlavoH on Trial.
QEIIIXO , Nob. , Aug. 19. [ Special to THE
Buu.J Charles Brown and Henry Matthews
were arrested this week and had their pre
liminary hearing today , the charge against
them being the stealing of cattle. A war
rant has also boon issueil for Ed David. For
months the cattlemen , ranging north of the
river in Scott's Bluff and Sioux counties ,
have boon losing choice bunches of steers in
Just about carload lots , among the victims
being the heavy owners , Nichols Bros , ,
Wallace Merchant , W. H. Walker , Charles
Hraska nnd others. A still hunt has been
going on , which has spotted the parties now
under arrest , who made tholr headquarters
in the extensive sandhills south of Alliance ,
in northern Cheyenne county. Cattle can
bo run into thcso hills and driven for
hundreds of mile * without being scon , by
keeping to the valleys between the hills.
This is the same section of country which
became celebrated during the famous
Kingen affair of several years ago , and wliilo
tho'prosent depredation ? are not of the same
character , the results are much more bur
densome to the owners , who are simply pri
vate ranchmen , instead of , as in the former
case , big cattle companies. The presumption
is that the stolen stock is driven into thcso
hills and in an indirect way to Alliance or
some other station of the B. & M. , and sold
to butchers or shipped to Omaha.

Street Car Appraisement ns Considered bjr
a Oouncllinnnla Committee.
Some of the owners of property on South
Sixtccnth'stroot express dissatisfaction over
the rejection of the report of the award of
damages by the appraisers for thr > opening
and extending of Sixteenth street from Vin-
ton to the city limits.
The appraisers' report wa submitted to
the council and referred to the committee on
streets , alloys and boulevards. Tuesday
evening the committee made its report with
the recommendation that the award of the
appraisers bo rejected and that a now board
bo named. Tlio report was made by Mr.
Howcll and signed by tlio other members.
No reason was given in tlio report of the
committee as to why the appraisers' report
should bo rejected and no questions were
asked by the couiicilmon who voted to ap
prove of the rceommedation of the commit
This caused rumors to bo circulated that
the report was rejected because the apprais
ers had not awarded damages in a sufllcieiit
amount to the Omaha Street Knit way com
pany. The appraisers wore T. B. McCulloch ,
James Stockualo and John F. Flack. They
allowed to the street railway company
damatrcs to the amount of $2,500 for a strip
of land liOxOOO foot that was to bo appropri
ated. The lot adjoining on the south has a
strip appropriated UUx'JjO feet , and the dam
ages awarded amounted to only $ .100. Tlio
appraisers contend that the street railway
company was not tint'tho best of it by several
per cent and refused to increase the award.
They also claim that all of the properly
owners were satisfied with the awards mado.
Chairman Howcll and Mr , Els.assor of the
committee on street * , alloys and boulevards ,
that made tlio adverse report , were asked
as to the cause of the rejection of the ap
praisers' report. Both replied that the
award as made to the street railway com
pany wan entirely too low and unjust. It
was for that reason the gentlemen said that
they recommended the rejection of the re
port. They say that the company should re
ceive for the property appropriated an
equitable nnd just sum and that aovoral of
tlio property owners down there had stated
that the award to the company was entirely
too low.
Sud Cnie of n Hick Child Who Win Frleht-
tiiiBd at n Critical Tluio ,
Building Inspector Tilly was called to
Thirty-fourth and Jones streets yesterday
morning to make an ofllclal inspection of a
dwelling in a state of almost total collapse.
The occuuant of the house is Mrs , Gcorgo
McDonald and she relates a very sad story ,
Friday of last week a neighboring lady was
nursing a sick 11 ttio child of Mrs. McDonald ,
when suddenly , and almost without warning ,
the floor gave away and went down a dis
tance of ono foot. The shock caused to the
occupants of the house was very severe nnd
in n few hours afterwards the child died. In
addition to'tho ' floor giving away the parti
tion running through the house bulged and
is ready to collapse at any moiccnt. The
chimney also sagged and is In a dangerous
condition. Colonel Tilly found that the con
dition of the house renders it uninhabitable
nnd its occupancy dangerous. He will put
tlio agent on the carpet and cause an 1m-
mod lute repair of the house to bo made or
else it will como down under official super
Mrs. McDonald has resided in the house
for a number of months und she has paid a
monthly rental of $4. This rent mouoy she
says has always promptly boon paid and no
trouble on thu score has been caused.
However , when the lust rent day rolled
around , owing to the illness und death of
the baby , she was unable to moot the obliga
tion and asked for a fuw days time. Too
agent wan arbitrary and demanded the pay
ment of the rent or an immediate-vacation
of the premises. Ho departed and u few
hours later the lady was served with a
notice of n suit of ejectment. She visited
the agent aud remonstrated with him and
promised within u certain time to pay the
iniouut. The agent was determined aud ro-
'usod to accede to her i-cquest. This action
of the agent falls rather hard on the lady ,
who says she has a garden on the promises
that she can illy afford to lose.
Colonel Tilly will ascertain from the
iiront why ho is leasing for occupancy an un-
nhabitablo dwelling , nnd why ho Is so arbi
trary in forcing the collection of rent for
such a place.

, Aug. 10. [ Special to TUB BEE. ]
Fudge Lansing is rapidly making a record
for himself in the way of settling up dls-
> uted estates. His recent decision In the
settlement of the Eider Miller estate by
vhlch the cider's
adopted daughter waa
nwaided $70,000 attracted considerable at-
eution at tlio time. The judge today handed
down another decision which will add to his
already largo nccumulition of laurels.
Tlio case In hand is known as the Ledwlth
vill case , nnd it has already obtained con-
sidurabln celebrity in local legal circles , It
originated in the attempt of Mrs. James
Ledwlth to secure the removal of John Lud-
vlth as administrator of her lute husband's
estate. She accused him of trying to rob
icr and her chihl run by neglecting to account
'or funds belonging to tlio estate coming
nto his hands. She also claimed that ho
icglectod to pay her the flOO per month nl-
owed her by her hito husband's will for the
naintcimtico of herself and children , and
that ho tried to prejudice the children
against hor.
In handing down his opinion of the case ,
Judge Lansing decides that the widow is
entitled to the undisputed possession of the
homo in which she lives ; that the executor
