Judge Baker of the criminal court dis
tributed New Year's gifts with a lavish hand
yesterday morning. Ho announced a few
da > 8 ago thai ho would celebrate the in
coming of the new jcar by liberating a num
ber of prisoners from the county Jail , and
a number of the hangers-on about the court
house pre-empted front seats In the court
room In order that they might not miss any
of the ceremony. Eleven prisoners from
the county Jail wcro brought Into court nnd
wcro pieced In the Jury box. These were
called before the Judge , ons at a time , and
wcro given sentences "to fit the crime" as
nearly ns the law allows. Eight were or
dered released from the Jail In order that
they might take up their residence at the
state penitentiary , two \vcre sent back to
Jail to servo their sentences and one was re
leased with n suspended sentence.
The most Important case disposed of wnn
that of C'harles H. Elliott , convicted of mur
der In the first degree with life Imprison
ment for the killing of his roommate and
friend , Gay Hutsonpllltr. Judge Baker told
Elliott It was very fortunate for him that
the Jury had the right to fix the penalty ,
for had It bean otherwise the judge said ho
would have received the severest penalty
known to law. The court expressed the
opinion that the crime of which Elliott had
been convicted was the most cold-blooded
of any In the criminal calendar , nnd If the
death penalty wcro ever deserved by any
man It was by the prisoner at the bar. In
accordance with the finding of the Jury the
convicted man was sentenced to the peniten
tiary for life , and It was further provided
that at each aunl\ersary of the crime , No
vember 17 of each year , ho should be placed
In solitary confinement with bread and water
diet.Two colored women were sentenced to the
penitentiary for larceny from the person.
The complaining witness In each was a white
mun who wna robbed whllo enjojliig the com
pany and carcases of the dusky damsels. Hattie -
tie Jones will reside In Lincoln for the
next year and Lllllo Williams vylll receive

tering a dwelling house In the daytime , was

A meeting In the Intel cat of the estab
lishment of a beet sugar factory was held

ernoon. A number of farmers from points
In this county as well as from adjoining
counties were present , and took an active
Interest In the piocecdlngs. As A result ol
the meeting a committee was appointed to
call upon the farmers of this and adjacent
counties and learn what support would bo
given the project uy the farmers , either In
the way of raising beeta or In subscrip
tions to stick In the factory. >

of the meeting.
Prof. Nicholson of the State university ,
who has made very extensive Investigations
Into the subject of raising sugar beets , was
Introduced to the meeting , and made a very
Interesting and Instructive address on the
proper cultivation of sugar beets , the pecul
iar adaptability of Nebraska soil , especially
the ea tern portion of the state , to the rais
ing of beets of high grade , nnd other details
in connection with the subject. <
After those present had questioned Prof.
Nicholson regarding certain details of culti
vation. Chairman Dumont called the atten
tion of the meeting to the matter of estab
lishing a factory , asking the farmers of this
vicinity to co-operate with capitalists In such
n movement. Ho stated that the Commer
cial club had appointed a committee to or
ganize such a project , and he asked the
farmers to appoint a committee to act ulth
the committee already appointed.
The matter was discussed from the farm
ers' point of view by W. G. Whitmore nnd
G. R. Williams , after which n committee ,
consisting of G. R. Williams , F. Schioedcr
and Frank Htbbanl , was appointed to call
upon the farmers of this \lclnlty and learn

The live question In city hall circles Just
now Is whether or not Mayor Broatch will
veto the city Jail contract and the com
promise with the Barber Asphalt company.
A great deal of pressure Is being brought to
bear on both sides , but It Is Intimated by
officials who have had an opportunity to
approach the throne that unlcra the mayor
changes his mind both measures will be
returned to the council next Tuesday night
with vetoes. In any case the action of
councllmen In filing notice that they would
move n reconsideration of the votes by
which the measures were passed amounts
to nothing. Both documents were sent to
the mayor by the city clerk , and as his
approval or disapproval Is the first order pt
business , the members will have no
opportunity to carry their good resolutions
Into effect. It Is suggested. * by certain
Individuals that the members were aware
of this fact before they gave the notice.
There Is a difference of opinion among
councllmen as to the duty of the * city clerk
In such a case as the one mentioned. The
rules of the council provide that any member
who voted wjth the majority may have a
vote re-considered at the next regular meet
ing by giving notice of his Intention. Under
tliu procedure of the city clerk this rule U
a farce , as , by sending the papers to the
mayor , no opportunity for a reconsideration
IsYafforded , Homo councllmen side with the.
city clerk , whllo others contend that ho had
no right to dliposc of the papers until after
( ho motion to reconsider had been acted on.

work of preparing their exhibits.

Jake Slosburg , a 12-year-old boy , employed
In a butcher shop near Sixteenth and Capitol
avenue , had an exciting experience \\lth a
runaway horse jesterday. Ho came out
of the affair allvo and uninjured , and there-
faro Ills friends bold that ho Is the luckiest
boy In existence.
Slosburg was driving a light delivery wagon
when the horse became f lightened at an cn-
Klno near Sixteenth and Nicholas streets.
The animal became frantic and dashed
down Sixteenth street without regard to the
boy'fl tugging on the. reins. The lad yelled
and guided the runaway rig OB best ho
could , but spectators sewncil to think that
U was all a Joke , ami only a few attempted
to stop the horso. These few failed.
At Sixteenth and Casi streets the runaway
collided with a pcddltir'B wagon , overturning
'It and scattering apples , celery , potatoes
and other products In ! all directions. This
accident acted Ilka o > spur upon the horse ,
and It quickened Its speed , It turned east
on Chicago and for the next fifteen min
utes wound along thei streets between Chicago
cage and Capitol avomit ) and Thirteenth and
Seventeenth. Finally at Thirteenth nnd
Davenport streets a./valiant citizen brought
the horse to a standstill.
Young Slosburgwas scared and some of
his hair had pulled Jttself out by the roots.
Ills lungs and throat/were also sere from his
yelling. Doyond tlfeso little Incidentals ,
however , ho was Uninjured.

Ft Chance
to obtain an Interest at
the great
n\p jears nuo a cattle pneturc , today the
prcntcst sold producing district on the Amer
ican continent. Thousands of people/ would
like to become Interested In these great fold
Melds and secure a share of the golden
riches , but cannot afford to spend the time
nnd money necessary to go there and look up
desirable mining properties.
Wo nre on the \crge of u great revival of gold
mining. Improved machinery nnd uiMly In-
crenscd facilities for luindllng the ore have
simplified the methods of mining and reduced
the risks , until It has become a strictly Imtl-
nens proposition , nnd , carefully nnd judiciously
conducted , offers today the safest and quickest
legitimate way to make enormous profits of
any business In the United States.
When we look around nnd see the fortunes lost
In what la termed legitimate business enter
prises , the manufacturing concerns , trust
companies , railroads and banks that have
fulled during the past few years , nnd then
ECC the great number of mining companies
working right along , unaffected by panics and
undisturbed by politics , the wonder Is that
there arc not more people already Interested
In cold mining.
We nre forming a company to operate nt Crip
ple Creek , nnd can offer those Interested ! n
splendid chance to obtnln a share of the
wonderful output of this great gold cump ,
without the expenditure of uny money for
traveling expenses or taking time from buR-
IIICFB. The amount required of each one will
be very tmall and liable to Jleld enormous
returns. If Interested , wiltc during next ten
