present aentence, will be banged from tbc
esme scaffold which hat done ao much
arrvlce In Douglas county. Sheriff Power
of Omaba wa In Lincoln today and made
arrangements for tbe transfer of the prop
erty to to penitentiary. Tbe scaffold la
ow atored la the Douglas county court
bouse and will not be deltrered until tbe
last minute before the time ot execution,
It ia possible and also probable that
Ncigenaod will be granted a stay of execu
tion. While Governor Mickey will not ad
mit that be intenda to Interfere, be will
not say he does not Intend to Interfere.
In Tiew of the fact that a bill Is now pend
ing in the senate to abolish capital pun-
Uumtnt and the fata of thia bill cannot
be decided by tbe time of tbe execution. It
is thought that thia fact may have some
Influence In getting for Nelgenfind a re

the law of libel and alander at some length.
He thinks that the constitution of 1875,

ends, shall be a sufficient defense." Intended
to place restraint upon tbe freedom of the
