Police Judge Gordon delivered a broads
t the ntckel-ln-the-slot machlnn ycsterd
Ed Pctcrton and Charles Nordeibcrg <
rled In police court for "carrying on A 1
cry and game of chance. " The lottery a
game of chance we a nothing else than '
operating of a slot machine. The defci
ants admitted that they operated the devl
but contended that , by reason of giving
clgarctto each time whether or not i
player secured "Jacks up or better , " tl
> laccd themselves beyond the pale of
statute relating to lotteries. It way she
by the evidence that at Unite the play

upon the fact that merchandise of eo
value was always ulven that the defense
led for acquittal. In an extended optn
fudge Gordon found that there was proba
cauac to believe the defendants guilty i
cmanded 'them to the district court
ilal In bonds of $500 each.
In passing upon the eyldonce Judge G
don quoted numerous accepted author ! )
on what constituted a lottery. From volu
xlll , American Encyclopedia ot Law , he cl
the following : "A lottery Is a sort of gam
contract by which for a valuable connlde
Ion one may by favor obtain a prize o :
value eupcrkr to the amount ot value
that which he risks. "
"Tho word lottery embraces the eleme
ot procuring through lot or chance by
nvestment of money or something of va
Bomo greater amount of money or thlrg
value. " ( United S.ates against Wallla
492. )
"A lottery Is the distribution of prl
and blanks by lot or chance In which sir
mms UTS' ventured for the chance of obtu
ng a large value In money or other pr
crty. " ( Destys , Criminal Law. )
Judge Gordon , after citing authorities
length , quoted from the opinions rendc
by the supreme courts of the aeveral stai
He cited from volume XLVIII American ;
ports , showing that In a cr. e where a in
: hant issued tickets to his customers
titling them to a guess as to the number
beans lu a glats globe , the one making
best guess to receive a prize , ho had b

In 97 MBSS. , page 583 , and in 32 New J
sey 393 , the supreme courts rcspectlvi
iccordlng to Judge Gordon's citations , h
that the proprietors of a public exhlbltl
who gave their pjtrors tickets for a pi
drawing were guilty of carrying on a lottc
After speaking on the authorities Jui
3ordon said : "The evidence In the case
bar Is that by putting r. cents into the
vice ( slot machine ) , the person so doing ti
obtain In trade merchandise ranging III va
from one ) half ot I cent to SO. In the 11 ,
of all the authorities and undisputed cvidc
before mo It seems to ma .that the de\
( slot machine ) , considering the manner
which It is operated. Is clearly and unqu
tlonably a lottery and as such comes wit
the scope of that section of the criminal c
of Nebraska which pertains to letter es i
garnet * ot chance. It Is the element of cha
entering Into the transaction which del
mines whether or not It la a lottery , it I
lows that any machine or device by wh
patrons may receive unequal returns to

vice within the meaning of the law. "

Yesterday afternoon Deputy United State
Marshal Barber brought In a ma
who Is believed to have been th
partner of U. A. Holmes , arrcstc
In this city about a month ago charged wit
the robbery of the postotnce at Tyndall , S. D
on the night of January 31. The man , wh
gives the name of J. H. Allen , Is charge
with breaking Into the poatofflce at Callawa
last Tuesday night In company with Jco Lj
man , who was also brought to the city. Th
two men arc In the county Jail for eafe kcet
The attempt to rob the postofflce at Calla
way was not very successful. The burglar
gained admittance Into the office and sue
ceeded In drilling a hole In the top of th
safe , but did not get It open. Some stamp
and a small sum of money was all that wa
stolen. H was at once suspected that th
crlmo was committed by a couple of tramp
who had been hanging about the town an
the Callaway officials started In pursuit c
them. The suspected parties were appre
hendcd near Drok'cn Bow. They were th
two men who were brought to the city yes
The prisoners wore Immediately turne
over to the United States authorities. The
were taken to Grand Island , where they wer
given a hearing before United States Com
mlssloner Bode. Sufficient evidence was ad
duccd to warrant holding them to the feden
grand jury and they were consequently boun
over. They will be held In jail here unti
the grand jury Is called at the May term c
the federal court In this city.
Interest centers In one of the two crlm
Inals the ono who gave the name of Allei
Ho Is supposed .to bo none other than Me
Dcrmott , a noted eafe blower of Chicago. I
ho proves to bo the man , then he was th
partner of Holmes In the Tyndall postofflc
robbery. Chief of Police Gallagher has Idcn
tided him as McDermott and so has Office
Jim Malonc ot Lincoln. The question will b
settled In a few days , as McDermott Is know-
to the penitentiary officials at Lincoln , as th
criminal served a term there for safe blow
The Tyndall postofllce robbery was a lu
cratlve one for the crooks , as It netted thcr
about $700 In stamps and money. The bur
glars were traced by their foot tracks In th
snow for many miles out of town and befor
the tracks were lost a description of the mei
was secured from people who had seen them
The men were traced to this city. On February
ruary 8 ono of them wns located at 116
North Sixteenth street and was arrested. H
gave the name of n. D. Holmes. None of th
stolen stamps were found In his pobsesslon
hut ho had considerable money. Since thci
Holmes has been taken to Dakota for trial
At the time Holmco was arrested It \\a\ \
believed that his partner waa here with bin
and some time was spent in shadowing hln
In the hope of getting the other man. Thc&i
attempts were unsuccessful. From the de
scriptions that wore obtained , however , it 1
believed that the partner waa the man Allen
who was brought to the city yesterday. I
Is thought that he left the city shortly aftc :
his arrival with Holmes and that he pro
ceeded at once to continue his crlmlna
work In towns In this state.
The Callaway postofflcc robbery Is not thi
only crime that Is charged against the twi
men. It 'Is believed that they also crackec
the safe In the B. & M. depot at Graftot
about two weeks ago and a safe In a Unlct
Pacific depot at another town. They wll
be charged with the Callaway robbery , how
evor. as the federal authorities believe tha
they have a good csse against them. Semi
$9 worth ot stamps was found upon Lyman
which ore supposed to be a portion ot thi
spoils. Nothing was found on Allen's person
It la thought that Lyman was simply hi'
tool and that he consequently Induced thi
latter to carry the stamps.
Yesterday-James Brown and H. W. Brown
two colored men , were brought to this cltj
by United States Deputy Marshal Palmer U
answer to the charge of selling liquor with'
out a license at Fort Robinson , The met
hadf a hearing .before United States Com
mlssloner O'Keefe.
W. C. Newman of Ashton , who was ar
rested as a suspicious character by the Soutl
Omaha authorities , was turned over to Unltcc
States Deputy Marshal Allan last night. Hi
la charged , with sending unmallable matte ,
through themolls. . The letters upon whlcl
the charge Is based were sent to the prls
oner.'a former fiancee , who Is living now It
South Omaha , to he'r parents and to the mat
who Is now keeping company with her. The ;

homes and among such Gentiles as may dc
sire them , for a number of attorneys an

The Jewish Publication society was or
ganlzcd some ten years n o for the pui
pose of .securing In English translation !
works bearing upon Judaism , ancient an

educational. The funds for Its support ar
derived largely from wealthier members c
the Jewish faith In the eastern cities. .
nominal membership fee Is charged to n
members for which they receive In retur
all the works Issued by the society. Then
works exceed much In value each year th
membership paid. The society has now ovc
5,000 members which. It Is expected to lc
