LINCOLN, June 80. (Special.) Although
expressing great aatlsfactton with the
fusion state conventions the Nebraska In
dependent, the populist organ, does not re
frain In lta current Issue from indulging
In aome harsh criticism of the leaders In
the so-called democratic reorganizing move
ment. And It may be Interesting to the
democrat of Douglas county and else
where to know that Ed P. Smith, law part
ner of C. J. Smyth, who was voted for so
long In the democratic convention, Is ac
cused of being one of the principal agents
of the Htll-Cleveland democracy. The In
Both conventions met with the fixed de
termination to have the candidate for gov
ernor. The truth was that the populists
were astonished when they first heard that
the democrats would claim the office. They
supposed that that matter was settled last
year when the populista nominated a dem
ocrat for ths head of the ticket. Their de
termination to Insist that the governor
should be a populist was Increased when
the democrats proceeded to make a nomina
tion without consultation with the populists
and before any conference committee had
been appointed. The truth of the matter
la this: The Hill-Cleveland democracy
formed a plan to defeat fusion In these
western states Their paid agents have
been working In almost every county In
Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakota and Min
nesota. In the democratic delegations there
were one or two and sometimes more of
these men from each county. They did not
care who was nominated for governor.
Their object was to defeat fusion. They
had a very active and efficient leader In
Ed P. Smith of Omaha.
H. P. Harrington, who was given the
populist nomination so many times in the
long-drawn battle. Is thus summarily dealt
If the populists had had any candidate of
prominence there is no doubt that at sev
eral stages ot the proceedings the dead
lock could have been broken. But there
was no prominent man in the populist
party who wanted the ofllce.

The German bank of Murdock, Cass
county, has been ordered closed by Secre
tary Royse of the State Banking board be
cause of Irregularities In Its management.

years ago and until recently baa been In
a flourishing condition. Several days ago

tution and made discoveries which led to
an Investigation In which Secretary Royse
took part, with the result that the doors

DAVID CITT, Neb., June JO. (Special
Telegram.) George Gould, "unofficial"
employe of the Platte Valley 8tate bank
at Bellwood, Butler county, which went to
the wall last v January, was today held to
the district court by County Judge Sklles
on a charge of being accessory before th
fact of issuing a large amount of forged
paper whereby the Institution was wrecked.
In binding the defendant over Judge Sklles
"The fact of his having told depositors
of tho bank that It was aound and safe was
aiding and abetting A. H. Gould In the
crooked work. No fair-minded man can
come to any conclusion other than that all
of the Goulds were Implicated in the Issu
ance of forged notes and mortgages."
There were twenty-five counts In the
complaint and of these the court struck
out five. The defendant will answer to the
district court on the remaining nineteen.
George Gould, youngest ot the three
Goulds, Is a daper young fellow of 25
years, with a taste for patent leather shoes
and low cut vests. With his black curly
hair roached high upon hla forehead, his
waxed German military mustache and his
slender, sthletic figure, he might be con
sidered handsome. During the hearing he
affected a manner of the utmost Indif
ference. The greater part of the time he
sat chewing gum with hla foot eocked upon
the Judge'a desk.

wish in curing rheumatism, pain In the

necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra

peculations. George Gould waa not on the
payrolls of the. defunct Institution, but the
evidence shows that, nevertheless, be took
an active part in the conduct ot lta affairs.
Whenever either of his senior brothers were
away, he took his place. He was thoroughly
familiar with its affairs.
This Is the third time George Gould has
been arraigned before County Judge Sklles
for preliminary hearing on a charge of ac
cessory before the fact, and assisting his
brother Amos In uttering forged psper. The
first time the evidence waa not sufficient
to warrant holding him. The second time
he was bound over to the district court.
His case coming to trial, however, District
Judge Good discharged htm.
v"There Is no evidence to show that the
defendant actually participated In these
forgeries," said he. "He may have bad a
knowledge of them; he may even have
been In sympathy with them; but passive
sympathy does not make blm accessory be
fore the fact. He must have committed
some overt act of participation before he
can be held guilty aa charged."
It was thought for a time that this
closed the caae ao tar as George Gould
was concerned, but County Attorney A. M.
Walling persevered In his search tor new
evidence, and In thla quest be believes hs
New Folate fa Evidence.
"The new points of evidence may be sum
marized as follows," said County Attorney
Walling. "First, when Bank Examiner E.
H. Lulkart waa n the bank In March, 1898,
Inspecting lta books, be (Mr. Lulkart) called
the attention of the three Gould brothers
to a certain Irregularity, that of re-dts-counttng
$13,000 worth of notes. The notes
bore the Indorsement ot A. H. Gould as
cashier, and the bank examiner aald the
bank was liable for them. Thereupon, ac
cording to the testimony of Lulkart, George
Gould contradicted him, saying that the
bank had nothing to do with the transac
tion, that the notea were chargeable to
A. H. Gould's personal account, and not
to hia account as cashier of the bank.
"This, certainly, waa an overt act, tend
ing to assist the senior Gould In commit
ting his frauds.
Then there was the point mentioned by
Judge Sklles, of the defendant'a recom
mending the bank to depositors as aound
when he knew tt to be otherwise.
A third point we hope to bring out be
fore the district court relates to a book
In which the three brothers kept a record
of their peculations. This book shows that
as high aa $2,000 a day had been squan
dered by the bank In bucket shop deals,
and In speculations In Northern Pacific
stock. At the time the bank went under
thla book was turned over to the receiver,
M. J. Holland, with Instructions to keep
It for evidence, but he let George Gould
get hold ot It, and now It baa dlaappeared.
We have witnesses, however, who know In
general way the contenta of thia record,
and, unless It comes to light, we shall put
them on the stand."

STANTON. Neb., June 30. (Special Tele
pram.) Mrs. Anns M. Eberllng committed
suicide by taking poison, supposed to be
strychnine, In her room at thla place be
tween 1 and 1 o'clock. For a number ot
years Mrs. Eberllng has been a prominent
character In Stanton county. Eighteen
years ago she came' to the county with her
two sons from Brooklyn, N. Y., and pur
chased two aections of land, erected ex
tensive buildings and engaged In the ranch
business. Her husband was formerly a
wholesale liquor dealer of Brooklyn and
was killed by a dynamite explosion. The
sons became dissipated and Mrs. Eberllng
removed with them here In hopes that a
change would wean them from their evil
habits. When she came here her wealth
Is estimated to have been from between
$60,000 and $80,000. The waywardness of
the sons soon exhausted her ready money
and the ranch waa mortgaged and later
sold to satisfy the same. The eons drifted
sway and have since died. Mra. Eberllng
remained In the county contrary to fre
quent requests from a alster residing In
Brooklyn, who is also purported to be
Since losing her riches she has lived
partly from her own efforts and partly
upon money received from her alster. Her
actions at times have been somewhat
erratic. On several occasions she had
threatened to take her own life. Today
she went before E. B. Baer, a notary pub
11c, and had a document drawn making dis
position of what property she had. At
o'clock she visited the postoffice, called
for her mall and returned to her room. At
1:15 she told the people living In the lower
story that she was going to He down and
asked them to call her at 2 o'clock. At
the appointed time, finding the door fast
ened and being unable to rouse her, they
summoned assistance. The window waa
broken in and the old woman was found
lying dead on her bed. She had made
all preparations for death, disrobing, put
ting on night clothes, removing her false
teeth and then, taking the poison, lsy
down on her bed to die. On the table was
found a bottle labeled strychnine. From
a rafter near her bed a rope waa hanging
and It Is supposed she first contemplated
taking her life In that ma r.
A coroner's Inquest waa held and a ver
dict rendered in accordance with the above
facts. A stepdaughter of the deceased re
sides in the south part of thla county.
Relatives at Brooklyn have been tele

had a considerable sum of money in a bank
at Norfolk and at this place. She waa 62
years of sge.

In almost every neighborhood someone
has died from an attack ot eolle or cholera
morbus, often before medicine could tie
procured or a physician suumoned. A re
liable remedy for these diseases should be

doubtedly aaved th Uvea ot more people
and relieved more pain and suffering than
any other medicine in uss. It eaa always
be depended upon.
