(From a fyaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. s July 2J. (Special.) Chief
Oam Warden Slmpklns and Deputy George
Carter auccessfully raided a crowd of Il
licit hunter la Holt county Monday after
noon. The capture Included John P. Sulli
van, Jerry Sullivan, Mike Sullivan and
Patrick Sullivan and In their possesion
were found seventeen prairie chicken. The
tnea were convicted and fined $5 for each
bird and th coat of the prosecution, the
aggregate penalty being $135.
Th arrest and trial of theie men ere
tted a aebiatlon In O'Neill, the county
eat, and throughout the country. M. T.
Harrington was employed to defend them
and In the trial put up the plea that mere
possession of the prairie chicken outalde
of the open eon wa not in Itielf an of
fena for which a penalty could be Imposed,
Inflating that evidence that th men
actually ahot them wa necessary for a
The Sullivan were unanlmoua In declar
ing themselves not guilty and each de
manded a trial by jury. Twelve men ware
ujomoned and, agalnat their own remon
strance, were ordered by Judge Morgan to
It In the case. Prom far and near came
hunter and other and when the hearing
waa bgun th courtroom was packed to Its
Caae Looked Hppele.
"It seemed like a hopeless caae, for
everybody apparently was on the side of
the accused," said Mr. Blmpklna, describ
ing the sensational trial. "The county at
torney assisted in the prosecution and
probably did more than anybody else to
bring the conviction. In -summing up the
case be said: 'Gentlemen of the jury, the
four boy here, all highly respected cltl-
en ot the community, are on trial for
the violation of a law. They are friend of
Bin and I am loth to prosecute them,
but when I took the oath of my office 1
pledgtd myself to support th constitution
and enforce th law. That is what I am
doing. I am living up to that oath. Now
tt Is up to you as business men of this city
to live up to the oath you have taken
to truly try the Issues of this case." That
one remark seemed to cinch the whole
"Well, the Jury retired and was out aix
hours. On the first ballot the vote was ten
for acquittal, one for conviction and one
Dot voting. On the second ballot, taken
two hour later, ten wer for conviction
The third ballot wa unanimous, but then
there was disagreement as to ths fine.
Th Jury wanted to have the fine fixed
for only one or two birds. The judge was
called In and he told them It was either
guilty or not guilty and If the former, $5
for each bird. Then we got the verdict."
Mr. Blmpkln says be has numerous re
ports ot illicit shooting In Holt county,
but ha been unable thus far to secure
a conviction. His secret service has not
penetrated the diatrlet and the only way
he could catch the (hooter was to do it
himself. Th men In thl particular aec-
