a Coaaplalat from Omaha
At 1:30 yesterday afternoon th hearing ot
Jobs Redell cam to an abrupt conclusion.
Ha wu found guilty upon each of tb thre
charge Bled against him and, upon motion
of Commlaaloner Kennedy, a at dltmlaaed
from the Or department.
The afternoon aeaalon opened with John
W. Bruder on the witness stand. He testi
fied that he had sutborlted the refiling of
the charges, which previously bad been
withdrawn, . and then proceeded to relate
Incidents wherein the brutality of the tor
sner chief toward bis men had been dis
played. At the conclusion of bis testi
mony, the attorneys for both side agreed
to submit the case without argument.
Redell was not present at any time during
the hearing, nor did he place witnesses on
the stand to rebut the testimony given
against him. . The hearing closed with At
torney Ransom giving notice on the part
of his client that be would appeal the case.
The taking of testtmony In the Redell
hearing before tbe Board of Fire and Police
Commissioner closed at noon yesterday,
when an adjournment was taken to 3
o'clock. Redell, although In the city, re
fused to attend the trial.
Among wttneesea who testified yesterday
morning were Captain Olaf Oleson, Oliver
Morrell and John Rolls of the fir depart
ment, Mr. John Bldner, wife of a fireman,
and George F. Munro, a grocer. A large
part of the testimony was corroborative of
that given Wednesday, though some new
point were brought out. Oliver Korrell
related the circumstance of Redell' choking
a fireman named James Slbel October 1,
"It was at a fire at Twenty-first and Bin-
ney streets," said he. "Slbel was working
Inside the burning building, pulling lath oil
tbe celling with a long hook, so we could
get water Into the attlo. Redell wa In
there with him. Suddenly I heard Redell
shouting and cursing Ilk a madman. 'It
I thought you did that on purpose,' he
yelled, 'I'd brain you!' While be was lay
ing this he had Slbel by the throat with his
right hand' and wa grinding his left first
against hi noee. ' Slbel waa so badly In
jured that be wa laid up for several days
and Anally brought suit against Redell In
the .district ' court 'for personal damage.
It seems (hat the tool Slbel waa using
truck Redell and Redell thought Blbel did
It purposely." - .
Aeeaalt OS Woaiss,
Mrs. John Bldner test I Bed that four years
go her husbaad waa Injured at a lire and
a a result wa confined to hi bed at the
Presbyterian hoepltal for nearly six weeks.
"We had nothing to live on except hi sal
ary," she said, "and I wrote to Mr. Redell,
asking htm If I could draw the salary while
my husband was disabled. He replied that
, If I could call on him personally at his
office he would arrange It. I called on the
appointed day. He ushered me back into
his private office and closed the door and,
after we had talked about tbe salary a mo

Omaha had not been burdened with dog
thieve since the Klondike fever, when

Because Jsmes A. Cltne, a national bank
examiner, la confined to bis home at Mlndeo,
Neb., br a sore throat, the trial of former
Btate Treasurer John B. Meaerve of Lincoln
on a charge of embeisltng $3,000 Interest on
60,000 of ststs funds, has beea adjourned
by Judge Baxter of the criminal court to
Thursday, March (.
The Indictment of Meaerve was ths most
notabls made by the last grand Jury and
the Interest in the caae had become so gen
eral that the court room wes crowded at
an early hour yesterday. Meaerve him
self appeared at :0 In company with the
members of the firm of Smyth Smith and
his private attorney, W. S. Morlan of Mc-
Cook, who are to represent him In this
trial. The county attorney arrived toon
afterward, with Deputy I. J. Dunn and also
Attorney General F. N. Prout, wao win
assist In the prosecution. Stgte Treasurer
William Stuefer and State Auditor caarie
Weston were also present tn the capacity
of witnesses. 11
Call for Wltaeaae.
As soon as court opened tbe county at
torney asked that there be a roll call ot
witnesses, and the compliance with hi re
quest disclosed that ot tha list as published
for the stats there were absent ueorg
Hocksell. W. F. Lawson and James A. Cllns,
The first two are former officials oi.tns
First National bank ot McCook, Neb., and
are now In California for their health and
beyond the reach of subpoena. The county
attorney stated that they are not absolutely
essential, however, but that Cllne Is, and he
asked tbe adjournment of the trial tor two
weeks, at the sams time reading a letter
received Wedneeday from Cllne, stating that
bs had suffered an attack ot quinsy and en
closing a certificate from his family phy
slclan. Dr. S. J. Jones of Mlnden, to the ef
fect that Cllne's Illness was too severe to
permit bis venturing out for several days.
Ths attorneys for ths defense demurred
to an adjournment upon such oral state'
ment. declaring that no application tor oon
tlnuancs had been filed and that there had
been no evidence offered that Cllne's state
ment would be material. The court then
Instructed the prosecution to prepare proper
affidavit, and one was made out, signed by
the county attorney, and affirming th things
he belloved Cllne would, it present, tes
Arise Aarainat Coatlaaaatea.
Th defense was still opposed and argued
that Cllne' evidence a an expert account
ant wa not material and th book ot th
hank Involved are already in1 court, where
the eight or nine entries that were to bs
proved could bs seen without the aid of
any expert: aad also that Cllns might as
wall forward any papers hs might have In
record of Meaerve' transaction, a th
Meserve stgnatura could be readily Identi
fied by many of those present In the court
room. The ruling In th case of th Stat
against Bartley had been cited as showing
that where the books or record produced
In evidence are so voluminous, or of such a
nature a to reader It difficult for the court
or jury to arrive at conclusions, It la per
missible for an expert to examine such
records and testify as to the result of snch
sxaminatlon, hut Attorney Smyth, wh had
in that case been the prosecutor and a
such had raised the point, stated that this
Is not a parallel Instance, as in the Bartley
case the expert was used In rebuttal,' the
examination being so sxhaustlvs as to oc
cupy months. Ths county attorney eon
tended that this examination would require
more than the mere reading of the final
entries and ths attorney general explained
to the court still more specifically the na
ture of the testimony required of Cllne.'
Judge Baxter's Rallagr.
At ths conclusion of th argument the
Judge decided to order the adjournment tor
two weeks and Instructed all witnesses to
appear on that dsts without further sub
poena. He stated that undoubtedly the
request for adjournment waa mads tn good
faith and that while he did not believe
Cllne' services as expert accountant to b
necessary In court just at this time, the
papers of which he wa in possession a
national bank examiner were ahowa by th
affidavit to bo material, and aa the wait for
them would be of unknown length, he de
elded to grant the adjournment to the date
named by the county attorney, a that would
take It ovor until after the attorney for th
defense would be through with their ease
before tha supreme court.
Immediately following thla announcement
the attorney general and other from out in
th state prepared for departure from th
city, but Meserve tarried la tbe court room
long enough to be arraigned and to plead
not guilty. ' He appeared la court the
morning after the grand Jury had adjourned
and furnished 11,000 bond, but h had never
until yesterday morning been formally ar
raigned, the delay being hy arrangement
with County Attorney Shield.
