LINCOLN, Feb. 15. (Special.) The fat
f William Rhea, convicted of the murder
of Herman Zabo, one mora depend! upon
the Judgment of the supreme court. In
the trial court he was found rullty In the
Unit degree and th aupreme court last
month afflrmed the decision, setting April
5S iha Aav of execution. Through hla
attorney. Rhea now aaka for a rehearing
The murder was committed In a saloon
near Fremont. Herman Zahn, the keeper
of the place, being fatally shot during an
encounter and an attempted holdup.
The attorneys for the defendant contend
that as the shooting occurred during a riot
the verdict of guilty In the first degree Is
contrary to law. It not being shown that
the murder was premeditated. The atten
tton of the reviewing court Is called to
the following Instruction which the Judge
wsa requested to give to the Jury:
"The court Instructs you that proof of
robbery after the shooting of Herman Zahn
la not nioof that the accused. William
Rhea. Intended 'to ' rob him at the time
of such jnootlng. If the shooting occurred
as an Incident of an angry dispute or alter
cation between others. In which the ac
cused. William Rhea, became embroiled,
and the aatd accused simply did the shoot
Ing under the excitement Incident to such
broil and without any purpose to rob, up
to that time, but. after the shooting, formed
the purpose to rob, then the acoused would
ha within the requirement or the woras;
and. unless the evidence satisfies you be
yond a reasonable doubt, that la to say a
moral certainty, that the accused actually
had the purpose or Intention to rob at the
iimi of the shooting. In the sense above
In this Instruction mentioned, then, under
the requirement of said words In ssld sec
tlon t of our criminal code, you have no
Irlght to find the accused guilty of murder
In the first degree."
Excase for Asking Reversal.
Judge Crimson, before whom Rhea was
tried, declined to give the foregoing in
atructlon to the Jury and bis refusal Is
now made the chief reason for asking the
suDremo court to reverse the Judgment
Arguing the case further along this conten
tion, the attorneys for Rhea aay:
"A very casual reading of the evidence
of Teresa Williams, called by u. and of
our cross-examination of a number of the
stats'a witnesses, will show that the de
fense, and only defense for Rhea, that we
tried to make upon the trial, was that
he bad bees, drinking heavily during the
night before and morning of the day of the
shooting and had continued to Imbibe
during the afternoon of the evening of the
shooting, and being in an excitable condi
tion from such drinking he became em
broiled In a dlrput with men outslds of
the saloon In which the shooting occurred,
and with those men rushed Into the saloon
In the course of the broil and did the
shooting near the door of the saloon, from
the Impulse of the broil. That up to that
time thera was nothing to Indicate an In
tent t rob, no preparation for fight, and
nothing prepared necessary to Insure suc
cess In a robbery; and that tne roooery,
rf such thers was, was sn afterthought.

Rhea and his companions, further excited

The coat of maintaining the varloua state
Institutions under the first year of the
republican admlnlatratlon compared with
the last year of the tuslonlsts represents
a saving to the taxpayers of more than
When the republicans assumed control
among the first things done wss to ascer
tain low many friends and relatives of fu
sion officials were being kept at the In
stitutions at the expense of the state. It
was found that In some Institutions the
number reached as high as twenty-two and
that the total number waa above 200. One
fusion official had a family of thirteen and
When he moved Into the institution ho not
only took his entire family with him, but
ha alao took two sons-in-law and two
nieces. There were many other simile
abuses discovered. Governor Dietrich va
cated tha exeoutlve chair before he had
time to formulate a remedy, but Governor
Savage took the matter up and at his so
licitation an order was promulgatad by
the Board of Publlo Lands and Buildings
requiring all but tha minor children' of
superintendents to vacate and leave the
Institution. This alone, based on the per
capita coat of keeping each person at these
Institutions, resulted In a net saving laat
year of more than $40,000.
The Poynter admlnlatratlon closed with
unpaid bills amouating to more than $140,
000, and to pay these bills the last legisla
ture had to make a deficiency appropria
tion in a corresponding amount. On thla
point Governor Savage Informed the heads
of the Institutions that they would be
required to manage their Institutions so as
to kep within the limits of the appropria
tions snd that he would hold all officials
personally responsible for any violation
If you don't want

something, that's certain. What
shall it be?
Use Ayer's Hair Vigor. It gives
nourishment and strength to the
weakened hair-bulbs, and the hair
remains tightly in place.
It does other good things, too. It
restores color to gray hair, keeps
the scalp clean and healthy, and
makes the hair grow heavy and long.

Continuing, the attorney general calls at
tention to the former decisions of the court
In the Moores and Kennedy cases, both of
which hold that the governor had no legal
authority to appoint fire and police commis
sioners for Omaha. As to this holding the
attorney general says:
"The Judgment entered was conclusive
and binding upon the atate of Nebraaka, the
governor thereof and all parties claiming
title to said office through said governor.
This respondent shows that this said court
then had Jurisdiction of the subject matter
of said controversy and of the person of
said parties and thereafter Judgment was
