ARGUMENT ON WINCH WILL
CaseEafore Jndg ar li Now raving
SAUNPEHS PAYS ATTLNTI0?TtO THOMAS
Cull Jury's Attention to Fact that

torntf for Contestant.
Tho Winch will case before Judge Bear
Is Hearing the end. The attorneys on
tulh sides are melting tlielr closing speeches.
W. A. Saunders opened his argument to
th Jury yesterday with a brief history of
the will, commencing with Us execution,
November 30, 1C91, when It wa witnessed
by V. S. Hhocmuker and W. F. Wapplcli.
The will was shown to some of the neigh
bora and they were asked In regard to
certain bequests. Mr. Saunders went on:
"The next trace of the will It turns up In
the po'esslon of H. A. Norman, who took
It to the office of Mr. Wapplch, who imme
diately recognised It as the will he wit
nessed. The will was next taken to tho
grand Jury room and left In the hands of
Mr. Klni'-r K. Thomas a.nd the last seen of
it waa on Mr. Thomas' desk In tho New
York Life building But hero Is the peculiar
and singular thing about this whole busi
ness. Both Mr. Thoimis and Mr. Norman
niado each a Qopy. Why should they do
that? What need had they for a copy, a
loin as the origlnul was hi their hands.
1 Xdn't they overdo It Just a little bit. Mrs.
Btone saw and recognized the will as the
one Mr. Winch had Mgried. She saw It In
the grand Jury room. Mr. Thomas was
deputy county attorney at the time, and
now appears as attorney for the contestants
nnd Is hero trying; to take udvantuge of the
loss of the will, which he himself lost.
' Who Is . contesting the -will of S. F.
Winch? The children are not here. In
whose interest was the will lost, and who
In tho beneficiary? The law requires a will
to be filed within thirty dnys of the death
of the testator. If Mr. Winch had died
leaving little property, the will would not
have been lost, and Mr. Winch would not
have been charged with insanity, nor would
there have been undue influence brought to
hear. All these attorneys or contestants
.ire after is the property of Sir. Winch.
Thnj havegot to win before they ran get
the money. Borne people n-lll do anything
' for money. The Hps of Mr. Winch are
closed forever. He cannot come '.Wore you
here and contradict any statements that
may be made by his traduccrs.
Thomas Should Clear Himself.
."It would seem to me that Mr. Thomas
should clear his own skirts of the sus
picious circumstances attending the lost
will, before throwing mud Into the faces of
others. You have all read the story of
'stop thief,' and you have all observed,
I take it, it -has been so apparent, the
nergy and persistence with which that cry
has been kept up in this case, and by the
party In whose possesion tho will was last
seen and the party who Is to be the bene
ticlary in case that will Is set aside.
"Now, gentlemen, take this case and do
JUKtly, and I trust you will not place a
premium upon the destruction of evidence
by rewarding the party In whose hands It
was last seen, by giving them a verdict,
becnuse wo cannot produce the evidence
which was last seen In, their hands and
which has vanished. Why did he make the
copy?- Why tlld Norman mako the copy,
und why do they npw claim It was lost?

John C. Wharton's Address.
John C. JrVharton, one of the attorneys
for the contestecs, said briefly that the
attorneyshad shown that other wills were
made. "I think It will strike you as a fair
proposition that if they honestly and sin
cerely believed that C. L. Winch waa In
capable of making a will in 1891. there
would be no need of showing that other
wills have been made." said Mr. Wharton,
"I take it that it is not a ground of In
sanity that a man makes more than one
will. Then whv sro to that straight? If he
J r was Insane when the first one was made
It Is sufficient to prove that. I trust that
J these gentlemen will not be able to prove
"J (o you that he was Insane. They want, to
befog your minds and draw you away from
the real' issue. What next? When they
get hold of the will they lose It. Yes, they
lost It. A will -is supposed to be a sacred
document. It la supposed, to be guarded

washer-woman can tell the truth Just as

a conflict, I would take the washer-woman's

Mr. Nolan There la no evidence that I
ever suw the will. .
"Very well, your partner had It," said
Mr. Wharton, lie then read from a former
petition filed In the district court by Thomas
and Nolan setting forth that Mr. Winch
was a vory bad character. This petition

the monument to his dead Newfoundland
On Sunday last as Klmer Dundy, Dr. E.
W. I.ee and Frederick Thompson were sail

Bandy Hook, a Russian hound was seen
swimming for life. He called loudly for
help and he got It. A boat was Immediately
lowered and the poor dog was soon In the
hands of Dr. Lee, fed, dried and petted,
choosing Mr. Thompson for his master. A
fine example of kindness to the best friend
of man for all men and women to follow.
It reminds me of another.
It is now nearly fifty years, June, 1S55, I
was acting surgeon in boats which conveyed
troops of the Harney expedition to Fort
Pierre, One day from the deck of one of
the boats an animal waa seen on the shore.
Glasses soon showed that It was a dog. The
demand was universal among officers and
soldiers, one of whom was General Tom
Sweeney of Mexican' and civil war fame,
and with the crew of the boat, for the
rescue of the dog. He was soon on board,
nearly starved, his nose scarred and bleed
ing, and his eyes Inflamed from his struggle
for life with brush and bramble, and as
thin as a skeleton. Careful feeding and
tender rare were his portion from that time.
It was a fine Scotch terrier, which seemed
to know how to speak his sense of grati
tude In a dozen languages. The dog en

' AT THE PLAY HOUSES
Ferris Stork Company nt the Boyd.
"The Village Peacemaker." which was
offered by the Ferris stock company at the
Loyd last night, proved one of the best
plays put on this season, and was thor
oughly enjoyed by a very large audience,
It Is very cleverly constructed along ra.
tlonal lines, and tells a powerful story In
an Intensely dramatic way; all this In
'quiet, even tenor. In which the turbulent
current of deeply sllrred human passion Is
dominated by the quiet diplomacy of
warm-hearted priest, whose (fund of rich
wit is as unfailing us his supply of common
sense and deep sympathy with those about
him. The characters are all human, well
drawn and most forcibly presented. Put
together with skill and taste, "The Village
Peacemaker" scored a distinct hit.

gave a fine characterization of a man
whose religion has not destroyed his In,

Mr. Barbour Is more natural In the role

comedy role and does It well. Mr. Bostwlck
Is fair as the brother with the ambition
and Mr. Ileebe Is good as the lover. Miss
Church enacts the role of the maiden' who
suffers with good faste and Judgment. Miss
Pavey Is Been In n ew character, that of a
girl with a temper und a disposition to get
even with somebody when that temper la
aroused. This Is somewhat of a departure,
for she Is most often seen as the gentle,
clinging heroine, or the weepy creature
who has been turned down. She does the
part of a girl with a bit of fire In her
nature very well, and while she might not
have aroused the usual vein of sympathy
she did achieve an endorsement for her
ability as an actress. "The Village Peace
maker" remains the rest of the week.

GRASS IS LONG AND CATTLE DOING WELL j
Stork Yards Officials and Others Talk
of the Oatlook for a rieatlfal
Supply- of Grass Stuff heat
the Hash Begins.
Range cattle will most likely be a little
later than usual this year. Is the report
going about at the stock yards. While al
most every day some cattle from the ranges
arrive, ttrta receipts are hardly large enough
to make a market. C. L. Talbot, chief of
the brand Inspectors at the yards herC.
tates that his advices are that there Is
an abundance of good feed on the ranges
and that the herds are doing remarkably
well. As long as the cattle do well on
the ranges and continue to thrive, ship
ments will not be heavy. One inspector
said yesterday that It might be as late rs
August IB before heavy shipments from
the ranges started. The stockmen are pros
perous and are not In .need of money, so
the report goes, and therefore they will
hold their herds back Until the rattle take
on an abundance of fat and the market
price shows some signs of strength.
Hundreds of cattle from Texas have been
shipped north this year. to fatten on the
ranges an while some of these will reach
market this year, the bulk will be held
over. But without these southern cattla
coming this year, live stodt dealers assert.
the yards will soon be full of rangers and
that when they arrive the larger portion
will be In fine condition. Last winter's
losses were light as compared with former
years and ranchmen had plenty of hay to
feed, so that when the herds were turned
on the rnngeg n the' spring very few
steers showed signs' of weakness.
September and October are looked for as
the months for big receipts of range cattlu
this year, although the movement Is ex
pected to start the middle of next month.
With the receipts expected, the present
deficit In cattle receipts at the yardB here
will most likely be wiped out.
Twenty-Three Tlogs deeded.
G..R. McGlll, the city poundmaster, says
he needa twenty-three dogs yet, before the
dog fund Is exhausted. A few dogs are be
ing picked up every morning and evening,
and as soon as the dog license fund is used
up he will stop picking tip canines. He
figures that even at the latest date, he will
stop traffic In dogs on August 1. There
has been less trouble this year about dogs
thun for years past. More tags were pur
chased and In many cases those who did
not care to purchase ' tags telephoned the
pound to come and get a dog or two.
Even after the dog catching season !s
over, the pound will remain In working or
der and stray live stock will be picked up
and Impounded until the close of the sea

Telephone Conduit Ordinance.
Tuesday afternoon City Engineer Real
prepared notations for' an ordinance to be
drafted by the city attorney giving tho
Nebraska Telephone company the right to
open certain streets and alleys for con
duits. While by ordinance passed some
time ago the company, Iq compelled to lay
conduits In downtown districts, no ordi
nance has been presented yet giving the
company the right to,n. streets, for. this
purpose. City Attorney Lambert will have
this ordinance ready tox the council by next
Monday night and, after lis passage and
signature by the- mayor, the telephone
company will be at liberty to commence
work at any time. It seems to be the de
sire of the officers of the telephone com
pany to start work 8(ie time this month
If the ordinance Is passed. Conduits will
start at F street on the-north and will
run as far south as Q street and take In
the territory from Twenty-third to Twen
ty-slxth streets. Plans are being drawn
for the telephone company's new building
to be erected at the southeast corner of
Tw?nty-fourth and K st ts, but work on
this building will not 1v- started until the
conduit system Is well under way.
Business Still Dull.
While South Omnha merchants report
business very dull, the local banks con
tinue to show an Increase In deposits. This
increase comes from the live stock busl
ness. Another source of the Increase Is
from the country banks. Reports show
that the banks all over the state of Ne
braska have plenty of money and farmers
are sending their money to city banks,
taking time deposit receipts. A well-to-do
farmer from out In the state said yester
day that nearly every farmer had money
and that the conditions showed prosperity
on every hand. Instead of being borrowers
now the farmers have money to loan at In

Jimmy was a Maltese kitten owned by

He Is survived by a brother and sister and
was burled In the Missouri river. Miss
Clearman was traveling from Salisbury to

said, had caused Jimmy s untimely death.
When the news of Jimmy's death spread
throughout the Union station and Into th

was visibly affected, so much so that sev

for her train to Mlnden. One of the yard

ANOTHER HANDY CHECK MAN
Stranger with Accomplishments a Finan
cier Strings a Few Victims.
PASSES OUT BOGUS PAPER FOR RIG
Mveryman and Others Tnrn In
Their Sernritles t the Hanks,
Where They Are tiot
Henry Homan. liveryman of South Thir
teenth street, Is out 112 good money and
has to show for It a dubious check for
$14 which his bank marks "no good."
It happened this way: Friday last a
rather neat appearing stranger hired a
rig at the barn and payed for It In good
coin of the realm, and In order to con
vince Mr. Homan that he was all right
showed him some other money and a check
for $14 payable to "Mr. Wyndham" and
signed by J. B. House. As Mr. Homan
knew Mr. House and as the fellow seemed
to have other good money, he let him have
the rig. The fellcw came again Saturday
morning and engaged the rig for another
short drive, but kept it considerably over
time, and when he returned Mr. Homan
added an extra 2 to the bill. Mr. Wynd
ham did not have the ready cash at tho
moment and offered Mr. Homan the $14
check, out of which he could take the $2,
paying him the balance of $12.
The proposition was accepted and Mr.
Wyndhamvwas given the $12 In good coin
for the check, which he endorsed with the
fulsome cognomen of Basil Fredk. Wynd
ham and went on his way rejoicing.
Matters seemed prospering until early
this week, when Mr. Homan received the
check back from his bank with the noti
fication, that It was "no good."
The only consolation Mr. Homan has In
tho premises is that tho versatile Colonel
Wyndham has planted severul more checks
for like amounts about town that have
come to woe in the banks.
