Harry Pattee. teller of the First National
bank, on returning from the calico ball, a
big social function, at t o'clock this morn
ing, was shot In the right breast Just be
low the nipple by two men who were steal
ing meat which hung on the back porch of
his father's house. He had undressed and
was ready for bed when he heard a noise
and on going to the back door saw the men
and grappled with one of them, who shot
him and ran away. He got back Into the
house and called for help. His father and
two sister were aroused and called Drs.
Trout and Ross. The wound bled freely, but
hey could not locate the ball. Harry rested
easily during the day, but tonight is worse
nd It Is feared will not rally again. To
morrow, if well enough, X ray are to be
sed to locate the bullet.
Marshal Rlsser telephoned to Knoxvllle
or bloodhounds, which arrived at 8:15 over
he Rock Island and were immediately put
on the trail. They followed it to the old
pest house, now occupied by Steve Crandall,
fellcw-about-town, who ia on parole from
jail for stealing a hog some time ago. He
ad gone down town and given himself up
to be taken to Adel to Jat to serve out his
sentence. He was locked Lp and the hounds
put on the trail for the other man. They
racked him through a barn and there lost
the trail. He Is supposed to have taken a
orse and left town.
Talk of lynching has been rife all day
and the officers decided to take Crandall to
Adel to Jail at 7 this evening. A mob of
several hundred git together and tried to
et the prisoner away from the officers.
Cluba and fists were freely used, a rope
was passed through the crowd and waa put
ver Crandall'a head, but the officers got It
off again. Someone hit him In the face with a
club and broke his nose. After drawing
revolvers and threatening the crowd the
officers managed to get Crandall on the 1
'clock train for Adel. The disgrace of a
lynching was narrowly averted. The other
man !a still at large, but it la expected he
will be arrested in a day or so.

was unauthorized, but the governor said he
would make no objection to the militia
company acting as a police force If they
chose to do so.

At 9:33 o'clock yesterday evening Arch

The six or seven officers in the rooms

on a run with Arch, who was so excited
that he could not aay where the murder
was being done.
Up some dark stairs, over the hand laun
dry of H. Slaughter at 205 North Eleventh

folks. The girl had an inch and a halt long
cut on her shoulder. The man had escaped
The woman was Hattle Walker; the man
Burrell Handy, with whom she had been

Sooth Omaha and is a handy man In the
sheep killing department.
It seema that yesterday evening he
started for the Slaughter bouse, that la,
the hand laundry, with the Idea of eating
another meal and doing for Hattle. Treat

in handily with a good sized knife, but was
bothered by Arch and others. About half
an hour after the first alarm, Handy re

Redmond (Inlni l.nvr la Imminent
to Heal l,iins Utaadlna
LONDON. Jan. 17. John Redmond, M. P..
responding to a national address, presented
to him at Edinburgh this evening, said he
believed Ireland would soon see a law which
would heal the wounds of the century and
give the Irish people a chance of living In
peace and prosperity on their own soil.
If the chance of settling the Irish land
queatlon was lost by rejection of the mea
sure, said Mr. Redmond, there would be an
overwhelming Justification for such a
strong, menacing and dangerous public
movement In Ireland as he would be sorry
to see. He thought the spirit of concilia
tion with the Dublin lard conference would
be reproduced In the House of Commons,
and If so the political parties might com
mence the work of appeasement and Justice.
Hitherto the Irish nationalists had been
fighting landlordism and not the landlords,
whom they wished would remain to take
a part In the government of the country.
The demand on the treasury in connection
with the voluntary purchase scheme was
not unreasonable. Th4 deficit would disap
pear In ten years by the reduction In the
cost of governing Ireland. Laying aside
the questions of what was due to the land
lords, and of the debt due to Ireland, It
would be a profitable investment to settle
the land question which had baffled the best
English statesmen, had been a source of
poverty, misery and bloodshed and had
caused the emigration of millions of Irish
men to America who cherished there an
undying hatred for the Union Jack.
He did not believe the settlement of the
land question would settle the home rule
question and he would hestltate to say that
It would be the removal of the last obsta
cle. In conclusion said he. If the last chance
was lost, the losers would be the landlords
and those desiring to maintain the connec
tion between England and Ireland. Tho
Irish people were ready to accept the situa
tion in the event of the acceptance or the
refusal of the pending proposition.
German Professor Lament Short
coming; 4of 111 National Scat
of Learning.
BERLIN, Jan. 17. German scholars are
beginning to give unusual attention to
American intellectual progress. Prof. Welti
of Freiburg university, comparing the scien
tific development of Germany and the
United States, says the real American
danger exists In Intellectual rather than
economic things.
The foremost among the new world uni
versities, be points out, ore better equipped
than those in Germany for comprehensive
training, and the munificent glfta from pri
vate individual for libraries, museums,
laboratories and professorships supply the
American professors with facilities for In
struction superior to those of their German
colleagues. Therefore, Germany ia in dan
ger of being surpassed by the United Statea
in intellectual development.
Describing bow German workers are
handicapped by the Inadequacy of libraries,
Prof. Welts remarks: '
German Investigators often painfully real
ise the fact that their American colleagues
work under far more favorable clrcum
stances. We have libraries, numerous and
good, but there is not a single one where
it can with certainty be reckoned tnat
adequate material exlpts for the subject
In hand. The larger Herman u-niversniea,
like Berlin, Munich and Uoettlngen, have
often attempted to get means for supply
ing the missing books, but in vain. After
several weeks of correspondence with six
or more libraries the Inquirer Anally ascer
tains that It is impossible to write a dis
sertation In Germany at all.
In conclusion, the professor assert that
the Americans not only have the better
tools, but owing to their large teaching
staffs and more minute subdivision of sub
jects, the American students are able to
pursue individual scientific tests more ef

Oklahoma convicts. Oklahoma Is expecting
such a decision and Is plannTng to rush all
Its convicts back to Oklahoma by epectnl

democrats who regarded it with disfavor.
Senators Piatt (Conn.) and Aldrlch (R. I.)

the resolution and Darlow Ferguson ot

government assistance, as the few Bta'es
affected were amply able to fight the dis

biL,LKiA, Ala., Jan. 17. Tom Benton, a
notorious negro, who escaped from Jail
here three weeka ago, is now barricaded in
a deserted shack a few miles beyond Hardy
vllle. In Shelby county. Attempts to take

negroes who had testified against him and
proceeded to fire on them, but they suc

keeping hi pursuers at bay.

When the svttem becomes infected with
Uric Acid and other like poisons they are
absorbed into the blood and lodged in the
muscles, joints and nerves. Then with the
suddenness of an electric shock, pains
begin to shoot through the muscle or joint
affected, which often swells and
inflames, and becomes tender,
feverish and sore. Unless treated
